    Seibu SPI - Raiden Fighters display issue.

    That looks like flux residue, possibly from an attempt to reflow some of the pins on that custom IC. On the SPI motherboard it's fairly common for pins on the custom ICs to come loose. Try carefully cleaning the flux off with isopropyl alcohol.

    Atari GX2 video ram error

    The video RAM that appears to be bad is the alphanumeric and playfield RAM. The RAMs you changed are for the motion object framebuffer. Try replacing 21M and if that doesn't fix it, 21N. I believe they're socketed.

    Sky soldiers graphic issue

    As @caius suggested, it was indeed one of the line buffer SRAMs that was bad (see attached). There's multiple layers of sprites; the only tilemap is the text layer. It was easy to identify which SRAM was bad on a 'scope because it was outputting random shite at times when there shouldn't be any...

    Simpsons Bowling Flash Drive Available?

    The SCSI2SD V5.0b (the small red one) works great with Simpsons Bowling as a CD drive substitute. However, I never managed to get it working with the V5.1 SCIS2SD, no matter what I tried. The flash ROM daughterboard is VERY unreliable in my experience; I've had several which reported bad flash...

    Sega Versus City Billboard System Repair Log

    So that's why you wanted those caps! I once wrecked a very rare PCB while attempting to desolder numerous ICs because I was inexperienced and poorly equipped. It dissuaded from attempting any further repairs for quite a while. When I returned to attempting repairs, I vowed not to make the same...

    Midway Wolf conversions

    The GAL is the same between games and is solely for the sound CPU. Without it, you'll get no sound and a sound system error but the game will still boot and run (badly).
