Here, yes. On MAMETesters it said after the second goal and that is fixed.
I don't believe that the cheerleaders 'invading' the field it's a bug. The wrong colors after the 3rd goal surely are, so I'll reopen the bug report on MAMETesters. I'll ask caius if he still has the PCB and can verifiy the behaviours.

Hi Haze,
...but do you think it's normal that 3/4 rows of cheerleaders are in the field after you score more than 2/3 goals...?? and the number of the rows increases when you score more goals.... this happens also in the first match

Yes, extra rows are normal to me, I don't see a problem with that, it's a reward for scoring more goals.

Might be worth checking if the game uses a palette bank like some other games in the driver, but not exctsccr.

EDIT: game's too difficult for me, I can almost never score more than a goal or two per game

there are cheats, I had to use cheats myself to get to round 3 (I'[m assuming the reporter didn't use cheats)

to test on a real PCB you'll probably want to give caius an 'auto win' modified ROM or something however, because yes, the game is frustrating.

Hi guys!
You are right David, the game is too much hard for my taste and besides I'm a bad player too, I'm even unable to score a goal, sorry.So I can't check the behaviour of the game and do a comparison with MAME.I need some help to cheat.Sadly the PCB will be here with me still for few days because I must send it back to the owner.Anyway, thanks as always for the briliant job in emulating this and other games!

unfortunately it looks like they've tied something to the protection (rather than simple checksum) to prevent ROM modification, so hacking the ROM isn't as straightforward as it should be

actially replace this single ROM on the PCB for the test
http://mamedev.emulab.it/haze/misc/eprom_2_vr_alpha_denshi.zip

this will reverse the effects of scoring, so if the computer scores it will add to your goals (although you won't get the celebration)

let the computer win the first 2 matches by doing nothing, then on the 3rd match take the ball to the top of the screen, and see what colour the cheerleaders are / take a photo of it. (this part should be easy enough, you don't have to score a goal)

[Linked Image from mamedev.emulab.it]
is how it looks in MAME right now (you can tell it's the 3rd match from the display at the bottom)
