I recently played the original MK4 board and the darkness and shadowings are indeed overly absent in the arcade.
I believe the differences in the video/pics are mostly some (minor) shadowing and lighting effects that are missing on the character models. Other differences seem to be due to some kind of anisotropic filtering (or maybe some sort of scanline effect?).
I made some screencaps of the video where the shadowing differences are more clear. I think a capture in the original resolution would be more clear.
Also, Haze, you are a legend. Thank you for the CPS3 thrills!
