    yamatoku-classic on eBay

    They've got tons of positive feedback, I'm just wondering about buying an "untested" cart from them. Should I be worried?

    Thanks

    From what ive purchased and friends have too, its hit or miss, it would be more of a hassle to send it back depending on the price... and sometimes the auctions get crazy :P

    Very true. I will probably pass. I still have games here I haven't rotated into the Big Red anyway.

    Thanks for the input!

    I have not purchased any MVS carts from them yet, but I have had excellent experiences with Saturn imports.

    Untested is term that most scammers use.

    Untested - I did not test this item or did not have any way to test it.
    Untested by a scammer - I tested this item and it is not working, I will say it is untested but the fact that I have x amount of the same cart system and those are tested for some reason just connect the dots.

    Every single mvs cart from that seller is untested, that's why I never bid on their stuff.

    Sucks too because some of those games need to be tested like MSX to see if it hasn't suicided already.

    The Altera Max chip dies then you either need to hack the board and burn a new P1 or transfer everything to a BK1.

    I've bought a handful of MVS carts from yamatoku and all have worked perfectly. Like others, I've bought about 100 other games from them (Saturn and Dreamcast imports) and have had nothing but fantastic experiences.

    Ironically that was the one I was looking at. So is there a way to combat the MSX suicide? I want to play the game, not have to work towards playing it.

    It should be fine. Out of all the MSX games I've come across only about 10% have died and there are ways to fix it with or without the same program board.

    As far as other things, I have gotten a JP Sega Saturn from them, and it was handled very professionally.

    Apologies for the double post, but I got the KoF99 in and it was both legit and fully working.

    I bought an untested garou from them and it works wonders.
