    Just a suggestion.
    This would be awesome. I'm up for it.

    yeah I'm down for this project, if you can get enough people to contribute it might work.

    here are some pics of Viewpoint I took a while back

    Just posted in the other thread. I could use my .mac storage to store pics of these boards as well as the marquees, dunno if the someone wants to host the site on a prettier domain.

    What thread was it? Now that we have a dedicated boot forum, we could sticky it here.

    Hi all,
    you're more than welcome to use the site i put up to host the original cart and bootleg/repair etc carts pics:
    MVS Cart Recognition Site
    Think the idea of having a proper stickied thread and/or sub-forum for boot recognition is great cracking idea!
    Not wishing to derail the thread or detract from it, but I'm still after pics of PROG and CHA boards from all types of MVS carts, email them to me at: dannywhac-at-talk21.com (replace the -at- with @ ) - contributors are credited on the image page.
    Cheers,
    Dan.

    I just picked up this Puzzle De Pon! to confirm it was legit.
    If I have anything to contribute I will do so in the future.
    Might I suggest a more attractive water marking though(white text)?

    hey sorry for the bump but I just got a copy of world heroes perfect for my MVS from ebay and I'm trying to determine if it's a bootleg or not. Now my camera is TERRIBLE so I'm going to have to describe the fuzzy pictures you're about to see. Here's the top board



    here's the bottom board



    here's some number sticker on the side



    number on the side says just "4865"

    the boards are the right shape and right colour and have all the regular snk markings on them so the boards seem fine. Now to the rom chips

    if you look at this picture



    looking at the markings on the second chip from the top, that's the type of marking on all the chips on these boards. Doesn't say "sharp" or "toshiba" but looks exactly the same as the second one from the top

    so anyway I referred to the master list

    090 is world heroes perfect

    on the top board on the left side the middle one is marked "064" which according to the master list is world heroes 2 jet. The rest of the chips on the top board are market 090

    on the bottom board 6 of the chips are marked 064 and the rest are marked 090.

    If there's any other information that will help you determine if this is a bootleg don't hesitate to ask me. And thanks for any help

    You're not saying that WHP actually uses a rom from WH2 Jet? I need to check mine. That would be weird.

    WHP uses some ROMs from WH Jet, it's confirmed, they 're labelled 064 as in WH Jet cart. Someone posted the pics of WHP boards :

    I noticed legit MVS carts can use Toshiba, Oki, Fujitsu, Sony or Sharp chips, only these 5 ones on all the carts I opened.

    Wow, some new game. It uses actual roms from the previous one. That's taking it a little far.

    I never knew that. I've always assumed the data had at least been rearranged and slightly altered enough so that it wasn't possible to just use whole roms from previous games. That seems just too lazy to me. We should try to make a list of which games use older games' roms. It would maybe say something about which games in the series are the most updated.

    okay here's a fun one. I took a chance and bought a cheap neo drift out cart from yaton (mr. y-plus technologoes). Came to 50$ canadian. So it arrived today. The label on the cart just says "drift out". The label is on upside down and has no serial number lol. So I cracked this baby open and here's what I found

    top pcb



    okay...it's a SNK board.....all eeproms.....says 1994 on it.....

    bottom board



    again....all eeproms.....snk board....says 1997 on it....

    so did I somehow get a legit copy or just a nicely made bootleg? There's no signs of hand soldering...but the fact it's 100% eeproms and the label is on upside down is kinda ......weird....and the fact that the top and bottom boards have different dates on them

    still one nicely made boot. This was from the "100% working" section

    It's a boot. The real one shouldn't have all eproms.
