Can't wait to get those security chips actually. I spent a brutal few hours burning EPROM's for UMK3 and booted to just a black screen on a board without a security chip. LED was lit. Used both brizzo's and Darksoft's releases to no avail. Frustrated me so much, I bought a new programmer which I hope is faster.

Question, what role does the GAL play in these conversions? Is it required at all? And if required, any specific code that the GAL's must run? I ask because some of my boards are stripped of even the GAL's.

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).

Thank you Phil. No encryption on the GAL? i can dump and burn? And if burning new GAL’s what is a suitable and readily GAL to use?


EDIT: Right when I asked the question, I realized the GAL is U57 which I read about earlier here and here.

These came in today from @brizzo. I will test right away on:
  1. A legit NBA Hangtime
  2. A NBA Hangtime->UMK3 conversion (using brizzo's any-code)
    • Will test Darksoft's code too
I have 6 Wolf Units in total that were stripped of EPROM's. Bought enough 4001's and 801's to populate all the stripped boards. If anyone wants me to test any conversions let me know.

EDIT/Update: brizzo's U64 EPROM's work great on my legit NBA Hangtime and NBA Hangtime->UMK3 conversion. I only tested through the attract mode however. Also, I did not test Darksoft's code yet.

Hay anyone tried to convert a WWF to a Rampage World Tour? Would there be issues doing this as I am tempted to try it.
