Better look on eBay for a complete Romboard it’s about 100-150 dollar and saves the hassle of burning 40+ roms :)

VF3 is Step 1.0 and Bass Fishing is Step 1.5
Can Step 1.0 games be played on Step 1.5 hardware?

Na fishing sucks you also need the dedicated controller and the controller unit.

vf3 is a good game if you give it some time . Easy to upgrade to TB

and still looks stunning imho

yes, it comes with this giant bass rod and panel, the rod actually vibrates and such. I got it up and running, sort of- it’s fun but it gets old fast. I have one issue that I think is power or connection related, but I’ll go into it later.

thank you and everyone else for your help, I am just going to look for a VF3 romboard.

I'm sorry for rebooting this thread. It is possible to modify a Model 3 Step 1.5 for working with Step 1.0 games? I have a Virtua Fighter 3 rom set I would like to make work, xD

I also want ti know if a burnt Model 3 Step 1.0 GPU board can be resurrected using components of a Model 3 Step 1.5 GPU board.

I know a Model 3 Step 1.0 only differs in the GPU board, since the CPU board an Rom board are the same.
