    Art of Fighting 2 AES extra rom?

    Noticed when browsing AES scans that the AES version shows in addition to the 4 mask roms it has a extra eprom located on EP1. This is not located on my MVS cart, which only has 4 mask roms. Anyone have any idea what this eprom was for? Was the game revised somehow for the home release?

    Have these versions with the EP chips been dumped? If so, is there any confirmation of any difference in the game, bug fix of some sort, etc, or did they simply spread the programming data out across two smaller chips or something?

    I haven't found ROM named Art of Fighting 2 (set 4), but inside file aof2a.zip I have found 056-ep1.bin in NEO-GEO roms collection and 056-epr.ep1 in MAME roms collection.
    EP chip has been dumped yes.

    MAME 0.193 xml
    <machine name="aof2a" sourcefile="neogeo.cpp" cloneof="aof2" romof="aof2">
    <description>Art of Fighting 2 / Ryuuko no Ken 2 (NGH-056)</description>
    ...
    <rom name="056-epr.ep1" size="524288" crc="75d6301c" sha1="e72d15fba55f96be7b4fa29e705a7b78f56edf7d" region="cslot1:maincpu" offset="0"/>


    The only difference I found:
    aof2 : NGM-056
    aof2a (contains EP1): NGH-056

    Now I am lost, NGH is not for Home (AES) cartridge ?
