I'll have to take a look at the caps, but I still need to clean up the rest of the solder from the 2610 chip I removed (and am waiting for a new one in the mail).
I'll check out the wire, but I honestly think I wont be able to fix it at this point. I need quite a bit more practice.
Oh yeah, I'm aware but I would probably do more damage than good at that point. Its much too small for me to do it properly. I might have a friend try and fix it for me, but my skill is nowhere near the level needed to do a trace repair, especially when next to 2 or 3 other traces.

One thing I tried (that cemented that mine wasn't working) was I built a JAMMA connector based on this message I got from Nerdtendo:
That would be the...
1 of 3 things is happenin'
1. You need to coin up. The controls wont do squat until it actually has a coin up.
2. You may need a CHAMMA adapter. The MGCD board runs a CHAMMA pinout, and can prevent controls from working.
3. Its borked. - my first MGCD did this. I sent it to JNX and he...
YIkes thats nuts - but understandable. That is GREAT spiritual successor to Strider. Love playing that, unfortunately Ive only ever played it on MAME. Amazing game, never saw one in real life.
Good luck w the sale man!
Small update again. I was using this image to figure out what pins are what on the Z80:
So pin 27 goes to the M1. That side of the chip looked a little dirty so I cleaned it up, and ran my soldering iron across the legs to do a...
