Figured I'd post some details here if anyone's ever looking for resources...

    I have a Darksoft CPS2 Multi Kit - Champion Edition 2020 that I want to install in a CPS2 B board.

    CPS2 B board troubles - Q sound chips?

    I have two CPS2 B boards giving me trouble. Both were working fine, then they were both exposed to a "bad" A board. (bad move on my part, very dumb). One of them had an infinikey and it killed the key. So when that one booted initially it went to a purple screen. So I installed a new one. Now...
