    KoF 98 possible bootleg

    I just got this from this guy on ebay. Guess I should have steered clear. The description said that "It works perfectly, but is sold as is". Here are some pics.





    The thing is, it doesn't really work. When I put it in, it does the slot dance. Then, when it gets to this, the graphics are all garbled and messed up. Looks like there is some pretty bad oxidization. You can kinda see it in the pics. Any suggestions? Help is much appreciated.

    My KOF 98 looks exactly like that, except yours is the other revision with the cursing taken out of the intro (hence the EPROM). And mine is 100% legit.

    Obviously a totally legit cart (numbered roms etc).

    It might have got fried sometime :-( It can happen.
    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!

    Fried carts are rare but yeah, such things do happen. I would however start out with cleaning the contacts of that cart. I guess that is where the real problem is.

    I gave it a thorough cleaning. Used steel wool on it even. It was messed up before the guy sent it. Ugh... What a joke. I'm not mad about losing my money... I just really wanted to play KoF 98 again... Oh, I forgot to mention that he shipped it in a priority envelope with no padding or anything.

    What should I do now? Can fried carts be fixed? It was sold as is, so I guess I'm outta luck with that.

    It's in the staticy voice at the beginning. A long time ago in #neo-geo, Jigen told me what it was. Something to the effect of "Play that shit like you got your motherfucking paycheck" blah blah blah. Some KOF98's have it and some don't.
