EDIT ON PREVIOUS COMMENT:
Of course I got the game working just a minute after my last comment. Two VERY important notes on the PC-88 version:
1) To get it running, discs 1 AND 2 need to be loaded into both drives. (Disc 1 in Drive 1, Disc 2 in Drive 2). It gave me a black screen until I did this. I got it running on M88 with recommended settings found in the application's folder. I used the files without the "alternative" file names (NOT [a] or [a2]). Load the discs and reset, and give it a moment. But perhaps more importantly:
2) This version is in JAPANESE. The English flag next to the download icon is incorrect, and if you don't read Japanese you won't be able to play. Please note this before trying to play.
I'm off to play the English SEGA CD version.

Couldn't get the PC-88 version to run -- tried all given emulators, which I tested on other games successfully, and only got a black screen when the game was loaded. Changing to recommended settings and trying the alt versions provided did not work. I'm definitely out of my depth to some degree but I see other commenters couldn't get the PC-88 version working either. If someone gets it working let us know!

I'm having trouble running the PC-88 version... I downloaded RetroArch, downloaded the Quasi88 core for the PC-8800 versions, buuuuut... when I extracted the .zip file with the game, it came out to be 5 different discs, and each one comes in 3 sepparated .zip files. It doesn't matter what disc I load in the RetroArch, nothing happens. Maybe I'm doing something wrong? Plz help! I'm a huge CyberPunk fan, and I just recently discovered this title and I wanna try it (plus, I love old games, from my childhood ages, it's very nostalgic for me). TKS!

The Sega CD version is the best out of all of them. Ignore all others, except maybe the PCE SCD one, though it's still not as good. This, along with System Shock 2, is one of the very few games to have ever genuinely scared me.

The Sega CD version has bin files what do I do with it?
What should I do after I installed retroarch and the cores?

PC-88 is a computer from the 80's just like say, the MSX, and the best way to play this for those not tech savvy or who cant be harrassed fiddling with emulaors, is probably to get 'retroarch' which is free btw, once you have that on your commy, go to online update, and then update cores, which brings up a list of emulator cores, basically emulators for a lot of stuff from ZX spectrum, to gameboy to 3DS to playstation N64 etc, and yes, PC-88, once you click that core (and any other you might wanna try) and you have this game downloaded, go to load content in retroarch, search for the folder you put the game in, click it and it will ask which core you wanna use, pick PC-88 and it should work. now i havent actually tried this myself, but its how i've run pretty much everything ive wanted to emulate on retroarch from snes games, to playstation games, i just do what i described there, and away it goes. its so bloody easy, a monkey from ape escape could probably.....make a mess of it...but anyone else can use it easy. even if you download the sega cd version, retroarch has a sega cd core too.
