The guys doing fpga
Are looking for a Konami custom
It’s in the Konami double stack pcb twin 16
For gradius goffer
Also On pcb of
MiA
Cubrick
Dark adventure.

Or just chip 007780 required to preserve in fpga for ever :)

Any lead to this chip or preferable a damaged pcb please
 
Konami Twin 16 is expensive, but maybe someone has a broken board (with hopefully a good 007780).
Yeh that’s the preferred option.

Most of us want gradius goffer
Given the fpga preservation that’s why I’m Spreading the word to look for this custom chip ,
If we can find it then gradius goffer will be added to fpga.
that will be a happy day indeed ✌️😊😉

What i know is on my Vulcan Venture is also need this chip to be replaced (im curious if can be reproduced , also i can give away my faulty chip)
This is how my pcb acts and im sad i cant still enjoy with this game :

Thank you, your faulty chip will be massively helpful towards the preservation
Of this game in fpga.
Can you please pm and I will arrange a payment for shipment of the chip,

Regarding your Vulcan venture I will also see what I can do about trying to get it repaired for you 😊👍👍
I await your reply with anticipation thanks
 
This is how the Vulcan Venture stash looking (Now only these pictures i have) 🤷🏻‍♂️

Can you post the custom chip to me ?
It will be stripped to read the die
And recorded for ever into fpga .

this can then help to reproduce a copy
Of the custom.
So the pcbs can be fixed in the future

Once revealed can be copied

My Vulcan Venture is under repairing progress (isnt in my possesion) , ive sent it to be repaired in 2021 . @Hammy taking care for me for this game as he did it in many other repair cases for my games .
So, if he consider that chip from my VV board can be donated , i agree to be donated .
Ive talked with Ulf and i explain him the situation too ✌🏻
 
There's a Gradius 2 Gofer at Surugaya for 210,000 JPY (~1400) USD. Could just buy that and sack the chip. Maybe start a donation drive for the community to fund it?

Who are "the guys" working on this? Honest question, I do not know.

skutis77 did alot of Konami customs schematics ... already few of them are used on Jotego's cores . Because of his beautiful work for Konami Twin16 core, we will have nice titles in MiSTer soon :happy:

Hi there, do you have capability to decap and image IC's?

No I don’t . I want this chip to go straight to skutis- he has the correct connections for the job at hand 👍

I don’t possess the following-
Not the sophisticated microscopic photography equipment.

Not the chemicals or chemical knowlage
Of how to dissolve the plastics without damaging the die.

Even if I did have the above I I wouldn’t know what to do with it if I did!

I’m just trying to connect the dots .
So gradius loving people like me get its
Incarnations and knowledge of how it was constructed / also repro custom copy of this chip 1 step closer to reality,
and then Set into stone for ever.

Isn't skutis one of the people working on this? Or am I mistaken? :P

Furrtek or siliconpr0n (John McMaster) can probably help with decapping. You'd have to ask them obviously - I can't speak for them, I only know their capabilities.
 
Still no progress on the 007780. Anyone wishing to sponsor this work can join my patreon.com/skutis
