    Garou AES - presumed legit?

    So, foolishly on seeing a copy of AES Garou on eBay last year, I leapt for it and ordered before having the worrying realisation that it could well be a boot. Gulp. It was the first big game I'd sprung for, and impulse trumpted intellect.

    The game plays fine, but the contacts need a thorough clean every once in a while else the sound's all corrupted. I hear that can be an issue with the encryption?

    Today I finally opened it up (good grief it's hard), and... it looks fine? The chips are all mask ROMs with the correct NGH number, it uses a PROGLBA board, there are no EPROMS, the soldering looks machine-done.

    However, I thought I'd post it here to get confirmation before I relax completely. Thanks to everyone in advance.

    Looks legit to me also. Soldering looks too clean to be done by hand.
