    Metal Slug X

    I think I already know the answer to this (I hope anyway!), but I wanted to get confirmation on the copy of MSX I just picked up, which happens to be the first cart I've purchased

    Basically I wanted know why some of the ROM's (and all of them have the proper number) are Toshiba and others are unlabeled. I've compared the PCB to pics on the MVS scans page and that looks good too. Was this something that they started doing later in the MVS lifespan, or did I get a bootleg?

    I took pics just now, but the files are too large to upload. I guess I can figure out how to lower the quality somehow if I need to post them, but I've seen this on other carts online. I figure it's a quick question to answer, but I've not been able find an answer yet anywhere.

    yes, im sure it's legit. Mask roms are legit. If it looks like the boards on Mvs-scans then you are fine.

    Thanks. Is there any reason some carts seem to have these roms that aren't Toshiba? From what I've seen it seems to mostly be with newer carts, so I was thinking maybe it was a cost savings thing later in the MVS life.

    The lighter colored mask roms with a matte finish and no manufacturer listed were from Sharp. You can find them in NES cartridges a lot.
