View Full Version : Home Cart Error Message.....

Just curious if anyone has ever received this error message on their home cart system.

MVS Slot Check
Ver 2.30 00/04/25
M1-ROM Error

I have gotten this twice and it was with my KOF2000. I understand that the M1 rom is a sound rom. All I do is re-seat the cart and the error ceases and the sound returns. This is the only time I have ever gotten this message, has anyone ever seen this? Is this a BAD thing?

Thanks all!

I have gotten this error on my MVS machine with Metal Slug 3. It was caused by the game not being in correctly... try pulling it out and re-seating it, chances are it will go away without another issue. It may be just because the boards have not been "broken" in yet... but for the record, yes I have seen it before and no, it is not a problem.

Yeah. For some reason, I got the MVS error twice, only when I inserted KOF 2000, weird.

It also happened once with my KOF '2000 home cart. Now the game works perfectly and I never saw that message again.

I too received that mesage from my KoF2k home cart. I used a can of compressed air to blow any particulate off of the cart's contacts and then re-seated the game, and the error message never reared its head again. For the record, I believe that I've received the same error message from my Garou cart once before.

Ever since I got my neo back, I've been getting that message all the time vice only a couple times before I sent the system off. Cleaning the contacts and inserting and re-inserting the cartridge about half a million times isn't working either.

It never happens to me.........weird?
Or I'm just a lucky guy?
