Hello All,

Just wondering if this KOF 2001 is a boot or legit?

the eproms seem to be sitting in a socket.
Thanks.

I can't completely tell because the picture's blurry but if those are Intel flash chips (not the EPROMs, the other ones), I'd say it's a boot.

Either way, cover up those windows.

It looks real. KOF01 has always had weird boards, but mine has the two EPROMs in the same place yours does.

Thanks for the input. Hopefully this is a better picture.:multi_co:

Much better. Now I can tell those aren't big lower-case "i"s on the chips. :)

I'm with Neo Alec on this one. Looks good.

But I wont feel better until I let you guys know that the 2 eproms were made in singapore. Should I still be concerned?

Looks leget/like the one I had..I betcha it doesn't fit in the case well..

I had to shave in inside of my case to get in to fit(over the socket chips)

Yeah, looks legit to me. The thing with SNK is that the chips can vary from different batches.

I've had a Neo Drift Out that was legit, but the chips were marked totally different to the legit one I previously converted.

It doesn't matter at all where they're made.

All legit KOF 01's look kind of like boots. I was scared when I first looked at mine too.

I can confirm that Ur KoF 2001 's totally legit. It has particular stamps on each PROMs & has "KOF 2001 + REV 1.0" stamps on progtop & chafio PCBs as in every KoF 2001 carts.
This particularity 's due to the fact that it was released between SNK & Playmore transition.
