I know I cannot get to that level to test this, the internal level skip only brings me to the end of the first story (Area 5). Someone will need to make an .inp file or a proper save state just before the offending area (before boss) so that developers can check this to see.

It is unusual, though, the final boss music doesn't play. I'll agree with that.

Uploaded an 1.7z file inside 4 video capture named for each set.
last boss theme only is played in rev2.
Namco removing last boss theme in rev3 ? Probably not.

Other strange detail is oldest and rev1 remember an prototype pcb because lacks several details :
- few enemies on screen at same time.
- enemies are slow.
- the same stage music for all stages.
- alternate sound fx opening doors.
- no ending (see the video capture).

revision 2 and 3 look being release.
Dip switch setting select start area only work for rev3 and if not is emulation problem in others sets probably rev3 is the the newest version.

Probably has an problem in last boss music theme not playing in rev3.

is possible select start stage in both revision 2 and 3, but the stage select only is displayed in rev 3 and also the dip switch config invunerability in rev 3 the player character not show an animation player losing life.
I have posted an message for the video owner. Now wait for reply.

Visited the youtube video from Fungi66 and the pcb owner replied in comments. He says it's a rev 3 pcb, so it seems to be a BTANB:

"DeLuSioNaL's Arcade"
It's Rev 3. And yes, I've repaired 2 so far using donor parts. There are a ton of Namco custom chips which can only be replaced by another PCB donor if the originals go bad.

Big chance being a BTANB.
