I can get out the tiles of a coin-op machine very fast, as well as the right palettes. Final Fight Main difficulty remains the fact that you need to crawl thru the arcade game code to sniff out all the tiledata references, to get the sprites frames for each sprites.
Or you could adapt CodeTapper's MapTapper to search the ROMs for sprites visually.
I doubt Richard Aplin took the pain to look at the entire disassembly in order to find the sprites, he must have used a simpler and faster solution given the little time he had. Maybe we should ask him, if he still remembers.
