    Unfortunately the metal has rusted as well, a steel wire brush or sanding paper would be more like it... From another board the about 10 pins from that connector vanished after soft brush + washing. Quite many eprom sockets should be completely changed…

    The batteries did a lot of damage to the B green boards. This is the reason I avoid “unknown” B boards altogether. It takes people with much more skills and experience than me to attempt a repair. Edit: neither B board will work in this state,…

    It wouldn't hurt to get a soft bristle tooth brush, and get some contact cleaner in here. I'd pull up each of those socketed chips one by one, scrub the contacts, and sockets. Reseat carefully. It's always worth a try. I've seen crustier boards come…

    Quote from djsheep: “"Junk" in Japan used to be untested A-Grade stuff for the most part. It's a pity that some sellers have let go of the pride behind that ethos and started to actually sell junk as junk, it was bound to happen with the advent of the…

    "Blue - USA & European region boards. These are totally interchangeable with the Green Japanese region boards and vice-versa." its true. I can get random colour screen (blue, red, purple, yellow, white, green, turquoise...) - Green generally happens…

    Talking about conversions. It a shame that Metal Black isn't exactly the same hardware as football champ, as thats where i started with this when first looking, ie can metal black be run on something else. I think the i/o ic (4 player vs 2 players??) and…

    Damn, they're some crusty CPS-2 boards right there. That sucks! "Junk" in Japan used to be untested A-Grade stuff for the most part. It's a pity that some sellers have let go of the pride behind that ethos and started to actually sell junk as junk, it…

    Hey @patmanqc I heard your name mentioned on "The Retro Hour Podcast" last Friday. All things considered, it's a pretty wide-spread weekly podcast with loads of subscribers. Keep up the great content.

    Well done! Thanks for finishing this one, it was sitting around for a long time. Seems that fresh eyes on this one was all that was needed! I re-burned all the GFX roms and took the extra 74 off and patched a couple of traces that had been cut.... Can…

    I have some more progress to report. I found that one of my original game roms i burned for the conversion was the wrong one meaning my rom0 upper data bits were wrong. Once i had this rectified and changed i got this with dip switch 3 enabled. Phew!
