    • Shinobi revival help

      I have a Shinobi pcb that I aquired and am assuming has died. I am still awaiting the arrival of my adaptor. In the meantime I was planning on taking care of the battery, etc. I planned on replacing the NEC block with a Z80 and the Hitachi FD1094A with a 68000. Now in all the research I did, the top rom board(s) didn't look like mine. I can't find the information as to which chips need to be re-burned with what files? Can someone direct me to a site that may have the needed info, or help me figuring this out?
    • Here you go, some info to help ya out :)

    • Thanks Derick-I had found that site too. I would prefer to do it myself over a kit, because I think I have all items required. Just need that little bit of info. The eprom for the Z80 calls for replacing EPR-11372 at A7, but I don't have that on my rom board. The other file for the FD1094A say's it's files are for 16A only, I have a "B" correct? Also, again the files in that file are for locations on the board that I don't have -
      EPR12008 (3D93) --> IC26
      EPR12009 (E451) --> IC25
      EPR12010 (9885) --> IC43
      EPR12011 (C491) --> IC42

      I don't have any eproms labeled this way on the board nor these IC locations.
    • I believe that you actually have E-Swat board, based on the CPU "317-0129" and A13 being "EPR12617". MAME will show you the other games you can play on it.

      You can convert it to Golden Axe... not Shinobi though, sorry!

      Shinobi runs on a few of the other rom board types, MAME has those part numbers, but they don't have the big custom IC's in the A row.

      here are the files to resurrect that one, anyway, A1 and A2: jammarcade.net/files/SegaDecrypt/E-Swat%20(317-0129).zip

    • Well, the board in your image is a 16B (US) E-Swat afaik, is that your shinobi board??

      The links where just for you to get some info.

      But you can get the files needed from the preferred source:

      jammarcade.net/decrypted-sega/

      Also, for reference, all the board identifiers are listed :)

      I thought it was (Shinobi), that's what I purchased. . . .
      Still a good buy, hopefully you got it for a good price. Resurrect it and test it out :)

    • I haven't worked with that particular motherboard or romboard, but yeah I'd guess you just pop in a z80 and a 68000, then burn those two files onto 27c020 / 27c2001's for A1 & A2, and don't forget the jamma edge converter.

    • That's a very confused boardset, the encrypted 68k is from E-Swat but a totally different version to that on your ROM board - the encrypted Z80 is indeed from Shinobi

      The suicide system will be one or the other as an encrypted device rather than both - if this board boots as E-Swat you'll definitely have no sound even if both batteries are good

      Download the right version decrypted ROMs for your version of E-Swat from JAMMArcade and burn them and it should hopefully work fine :)

      Sad to say it, but they could have cobbled together a board, but hopefully its not the case. Ace update us on your progress with this.
