This is Nightmare in the Dark

I'm pretty sure it's a boot because of the dreaded MX chips, right? I haven't got a chance to put it in a system yet since my system hasn't come yet. Anything I should watch out for in general? (WARNING: the pics are 2MB large each. )

Where did you get it from? Neweravideogames? It was obviously a boot.

If you got it for less than $80 then its defenitely a boot.

it was just some ebay game. I bought it a few weeks back before I even knew there were bootleg games. Oh well, how sad.

Okay. I canít make a new topic so Iím going to hijack this one.

I recently bought KoF í96. I believe itís boot but since Iím a newcomer to the scene Iím not really sure. Please, have a look and be the judge.

In time you can create new threads.

Patience is a virtue.

New members cannot grasp this concept.

And your game is a bootleg.

Actually, it may be legit. Those 4 colored EProms were a fix by SNK on a few carts I believe. I couldn't comment on the EP on the second board though. Maybe some closer pictures are in order?

Indeed. I had a Samurai 3 that had the 4 EP fix. That 96 looks legit to me anyway. Just check the numbers on the solid roms with the game number on the master list. If they match, it's just a fix.

The markings on the Toshiba chips match to the NGH number.

Hereís the text on the EP that has the white marking on it (54 I believe):

M27CI001
-12FI
V88BD
[ST logo] 9322BS
SINGAPORE

Thanks for the help so far!

Who was the manufacturer of that last chip? Sounds a bit suspicous, but there are some strange variations with MVS carts.

You have nothing to worry about then. It's legit.

Its legit, you also might want to put some tape over the windows.

Toshiba chips with the correct NGH number always indicate that at least part of what you have is legit. If everyone knew that, there would be a lot less posts in this forum.
