Code Mystics conversion of SNK's PS2 port; they've done some silly things in the past with their conversions but this one seems pretty solid; there were late tweaks to inputs or something but uh well, I guess they didn't mess it up in an obvious way?
Oh, well, it didn't read my DualSense until I enabled Steam Input, so that's not perfect I suppose.
Anyway, it doesn't have the slight blurring problem the PS2 version has, so this would probably be the one to go with.

At 686 MB it's also smaller than the 2.74 GB PS2 .chd.

Like any '98 though, while you can turn off Flash and Supers, the UI still does lots of its own little flashing between rounds/matches.

It being Code Mystics though did get it a rollback netcode update in 2021, following beta tests--that's 7 years after it first came to Steam.
