I did this hack for my good friend @lorenzo2mars in order for him to convert a Clutch Hitter romboard to Shadow Dancer.
In other words this hack allows to convert newer romboards (with the 315-5436 custom chip) to Shadow Dancer.

I've used romset shdancer, simply use files from this set except for ROMs A5/A6 where you must use my patched files:
http://www.filedropper.com/shadowdanceranyromboard

1) ROMs types:

A6 -> 27C2001/27C020
A5 -> 27C2001/27C020
B1 -> 27C2001/27C020
B2 -> 27C2001/27C020
B3 -> 27C2001/27C020
B11 -> 27C2001/27C020
A11 -> 27C2001/27C020
B10 -> 27C2001/27C020
A10 -> 27C2001/27C020
B9 -> 27C2001/27C020
A9 -> 27C2001/27C020
B8 -> 27C2001/27C020
A8 -> 27C2001/27C020
A4 -> 27C100/27C1000 - NON JEDEC!
B4 -> 27C2001/27C020

That's 14 * 27C2001/27C020 and 1 * 27C100/27C1000 needed.

2) ROMs positions

Use this conversion table:

Left OG position on 5874, right corresponding position on 5987
A6 -> A4
A5 -> A6
B1 -> B1
B2 -> B2
B3 -> B3
B11 -> B10
A11 -> A10
B10 -> B11
A10 -> A11
B9 -> B12
A9 -> A12
B8 -> B13
A8 -> A13
A4 -> B7
B4 -> B6

3) Jumpers settings

2/4/5/8/10/11
18/14/16/19
25/21/23/28
29/31/33/35/37/39/41/43
45/47/49/51
66/68/69/71

I confirm : my Friend @Apocalypse made an incredible job while i'm a full beginner in converting PCBs.
Starting at zero, and a couple of hours later, playing shadow dancer... It's just Christmas in August !

Many thanks, i feel lucky being your friend (not only considering arcade ;) )

I read this post only today because I was in Japan on vacation =O =O
I've already the EPROMs flashed, (except A5 and A6) I was hoping for that since the Moonwalker release!
I'll try tomorrow morning!

Thank you @Apocalypse :thumbsup: :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

Maybe it's because everyone is still on vacation, I'm sure a lot of other people will be glad to see this conversion! :)

This morning I've tried your conversion!
Initially I had some issues (NOT related to your work).
It sounds strange to me but the B1 rom that is used for audio was generating some garbage on the background (mostly black pixels) due to some ossidation on the pins (it took me 3 hours to figure out the issue :whistling: ).
I still have some black pixels that show for a second when the shōji is opening or closing (for example at the end of the levels) but during the gameplay it seems everything right.

This conversion is really a very cool present to the comunity. Thanks for doing that and thanks for sharing it with us! :thumbup: :thumbup: :thumbup:

Same here. Only the first Shinobi which is awesome. I may have to try this conversion, but to be honest, I was waiting for a multi to come out! :P

Can this be used on a Wally wo Sagasu board? I figure that thing has to be good for something.
