    Metal Slug 5 - motherboard

    Hi,

    I acquired a decent bunch of MVS games. Everything was genuine, except Metal Slug 5. I did quite a research online, but was not able to find any answers.

    As you can see, the cartridge seems original - label is numbered, the first PCB is right, all the chips are properly number, no visible soldering repair, only the second motherboard is from King of Fighters 2011.

    I am curious, if it could be a game serviced by directly SNK Playmore, or if they used few overstocked motherboards from KOF 2011 to produce Metal Slug 5 games (so Its genuine). I know, that they sometimes used pieces originally designated for different games (like the Puzzle Bobble), but never seen it on later games from Playmore.

    Does anyone know more about this motherboard? Thanks

    I doubt it was a SNK repair. Looks like they swapped the Char board due to the NEO-CMC50 chip failing. fairly common practice to swap with a cheap kof board. If it works, then great. If you plan to sell it, just document it as a repair.

    Label and ROMs look legit to me, I'd second it's probably a repair.

    Looks legit. Probably just using up some leftover boards. Waste not, want not!
