I just want to know if this is a legit cart with a repro label or a 100% boot.....Also what is it worth ???? I know with the rarity of it, probably more than the price guide shows...just want some options :)

Usually you can tell by the NGH number which is the number on the top of the chip.

In this case it is 217 which is ninja masters. Most boots will not have the NGH numbers on it. There of course was an exception with MS5 that there was a boot with the NGH number on it but it had other signs it was a boot like the 2 MX chips on it.

Its a legit set of boards in a "Yaton" case...as for price its not really that rare. I picked up my copy (was also a yaton cased version with legit boards) for only $10+shipping.

Really? Wow...I must have gotten a great deal. I guess that happens when Yaton is dumping a million carts of one game...once they are gone prices go back up to the norm. I picked up my Goal Goal Goal cart that way too.

Me too. I paid a little more though. Re-cased it. I'm getting tired of the few re-labeled games in my collection though. I wouldn't mind finding original-labeled replacements for the 5 or so re-labels I have.

This one is legit for sure.

Guys, i have a little question myself. Unfortunately i cant open a thread at the moment, so i will hijack this one. ;)

I wanna buy a Viewpoint (MVS), but the Cart.-Shell is all black, not clear as usual. The label looks very legit, though (it even has one damaged spot, where i think the serial label was placed). Unfortunately i have no pic. of the cart, but were there Viewpoints in a black case? Maybe the euro-version or something?

Thanks in advance.

Viewpoint doesn't have serials on the label.

Gairas Brother

Yes, i know. I meant the serial sticker. If iīm not mistaken, the older US/Euro-carts. had them as well.

Xian Xi

Hard to say because 6 digit serial labels are placed on the cart label but the longer 8-10 digits ones are on the side of the cart. And the 6 digit ones are usually only on japanese MVS carts.

Hm, that's true.

Well, i found a picture at last:

What do you think?

Looks legit, I've seen Viewpoints in black cases before. Looks like could be reprints also. You might want to ask for pics of the boards.

Gairas Brother

Ok, will do. Judging on the fact that youīve seen other Viewpoints in black shells before, i think it is most likely legit.

Thank you. :)

Sure Viewpoint comes in black. Mine is Japanese in a black case.

Hi

I'm new here and just posting this as a added topic. I want to know if this cartridge of ninja masters aes, is a boot. I'm Suspicious because of the different color on the slotpins. One is green and one is white.

I'm adding a link: http://viewitem.eim.ebay.no/NEO_GEO_AES_NINJA_MASTERS_Neogeo_SNK_JAPANESE_796/300474757124/item

I'd be surprised if that's the actual photo of the item. At any rate, there's no way to tell. For what it's worth, I think hit-japan is well-established, and fairly legit, as far as Japanese sellers who tack on a hefty import fee go.

Here are two copies being auctioned, and both sellers claim that they are original. Is it just me or does the difference between them is more than just sunfade?

What difference do you see? SamuelNippon was caught selling a MS1 conversion on ebay several months back for whats it worth. Then came here and argued about it, heh.

It seems to me that samuelnippon's copy has much more vibrant red and blue colors. It's not only on the insert, but also on the manual and cart sticker as well.

And even though neoamusement informs that the insert on their copy is sunfaded, what are the chances that the manual and cart sticker are also sunfaded?

Note that the yellow warning sticker on the two copies have comparable intensity, so it's probably not due to camera differences.

I have owned two copies of Ninja Masterīs before and i would not say that the colors of his copy are "too bright".
Maybe the other one looks just less vibrant because of the camera the owner used.
I also think that the insert of Samuelīs copy has some dents around the edges that normally only come with age.
You canīt be sure just from the pictures of course.

If Samuelīs copy is legit, it is definitely in collectorīs condition and might be going at an affordable price.
I am really tempted to place a bid...on the other hand i donīt want to end up with an overpriced conversion.

Hate to noob out on you guys, but can anybody tell me, or point me to a thread explaining why an orginal MVS game would be a a nonoriginal case?

magnus_101
11-20-2010, 03:02 PM
Probably because the original cart got damaged or had heaps of scratches on it from being in and out of the MB.Some people like to have their carts in pristine condition.

Dunno man... anybody that's anal enough to care about scratches on their cart would probably be way too anal to accept anything less than a "certified 100% original SNK case", wouldn't you think?

Xian Xi
11-20-2010, 03:28 PM
Trust me, it's weird. There are lots of people I've dealt with that wanted to buy a used MVS cart that had no scratches.

Yeah i would but you would probably get people that replace their original cases with non originals and store the original case away to keep it in the before mentioned pristine condition.I bought a MB recently where one of the previous owners had put cloth tape around the cart insertion slots to obviously stop his carts getting scratched going in and out.Some folks are out there when it comes to being anal.....

Some people would cry if they saw the Metal Slug 2 I bought off TonK. I don't give a shit what it looks like (unless I have to pay a big chunk for it) as long as it plays.

Nah, I'm just thinking it would be funny if Tonk's real name was Ignatius. :)
When I get the email notification, it shows what the person initially wrote, before any edits were made.

I haven't seen him around here lately, or maybe I'm just posting in the wrong threads.

I don't see whats wrong with that. Why scratch up your mvs carts any more than they are already. I put clear 3M tape on my MB in areas where it makes contact to protect the carts.
