    That looks to be an SNK fixed cart. I had a Samurai Shodown 3 cart that was exactly the same with the eeproms indivualy colored.

    I'm not the authority on boots, but I would say its legit.

    Clean her up

    I'm gonna give it a good cleaning and see what that does. I know I should do that first but this still looks kinda crazy to me, based on the other carts I have opened up.

    Check out my SS3 board. The bottom board also has 1 more color coded Eeprom chip on it. A good cleaning of the connectors and everything should be fine.

    ...

    Yeah, a cleaning totally fixed. Sorry, should have tried that first.

    At least this thread can help educate other n00bs when they run into this the first time.

    The "windowed" chips is what threw me off, I thought I read somewhere they were the first sign of a boot.

    btw - this game is pretty kickass too. Iori's first appearance right?

    I would consider the first sign of a boot to be the MX chips.

    What's with the wire's?(or are they cobwebs) I would rather get a second opinion before closing the question.

    Not sure, like I said cleaned it up and all is fine. Here is a picture of the second board, nothing looks out of place with it: http://mdstinc.net/boot/IMG_0008.JPG

    Those are indeed wires. Sorry for the picture being so blurry. There is 2 green wires, both running from the small chips on the board - one to a larger chip and the other to the board itself. You can't see to well in the picture, but there is a third wire that is very short and looped in that row of 4 small connectors in the middle.

    Bootleg or not it works now after cleaning and I only paid like $10 for it (like I said earlier, "Yaton special").

    100% legit SNK fix. Mine's identical... except fot the wires.

    The wires are a little unusual, but this is not a boot.
    I'm selling some MVS carts,art sets & kits, some Rare AES conversions and games, SNK Mooks, SNK AES Hardware, and about 40 Neo CDs

    Check the selling forums for my name!

    PRICES ADDED TO (pretty much) EVERYTHING!

    I've got a KOF2K3 with a eprom, legit though.
    If you ever see "MX" on the chips of an mvs cart then you can be sure enough that it's a boot.

    3 Count Bout ;
    Puzzle Bobble ;
    Art of Fighting 2 (EP1 + P1) ;
    Fatal Fury Special (EP1 + P1 and P2) ;
    Fatal Fury 2 ;

    Garou MotW ;
    Puzzle de Pon! ;
    Samurai Shodown 1 ;

    I have had a 100% legit Last Blade 1 with EPs in sockets EP1, EP2, P1 and P2 labeled with correct NGH number. All other chips were stamped mask roms with correct NGH numbers on them. No wires.

    You should always give the connectors a good scrub on yaton's carts before you put them in the cart slot. You don't want to get too much dirt on your cart slots or no games will work! I never got one of his carts to work first time so now I just clean them up as a matter of course before I try them out.

    Yeah thats a good call, never though of it that way. In the future all my Yaton Specials will go through the ringer before even touching my MVS

    Are the bosses instantly enabled and can you get an isntant powerup by pressing all the buttons?

    If so, it's a hack using mostly legit parts.
