    Metal Slug 2 AES, whatīs your thoughts about it?

    Hi,
    iīve just bought this copy of MS2 and from my point i would say itīs legit.
    But just to be on the safe side, have a look on it, please and tell me what you think.
    Thankīs.

    Here we go:

    Unfortunately i do the scans in pdf format, and i donīt find any host that show them directly.
    At the moment i can offer them as download, sorry.

    iīve checked it and these scans are terribile.

    Iīll get new scans the next days.

    Thankīs for your time.

    Normally, you would ask this before buying. After you bought, what's the benefit of knowing? will you scam another person to recover your money? anyway, I also believe it's a conversion, that bridge in solderings does not seem original at all.

    Inconclusive. The boards and ROMs appear to be correct.

    Looking mostly at the unused chip solder pads I can see some disturbance there and there doesn't seem to be any real consistency normally seen with a wave soldered PCB. Could be totally off though.

    Boards pictured here have similar inconsistencies: http://www.arcade-collector.com/metal-slug-2-neogeo-72

    It's not uncommon for certain games to have boards that look like they have some hand soldering work.

    there is nothing suspicious with his pcbs. No dirty solder. Glad to see that my pcbs (at arcade collector) are usefull. Check the contributors.

    Thatīs correct but the solder bridge is the only part that would let me be a little unsure.
    I donīt want to scam someone. The seller himself is interested what you think about it and asked me to send a link to this thread.

    From my point i would say itīs legit, but tell me anyone that donīt want to be on the safe side.

    Doesn't neostore offer a service to determine if a game is real or fake. For a super high dollar game I would not be against it.

    Iīve checked against other games of my collection, Stakes Winners 2 shows the same marks on unused solder points.
    It would be nice if someone checks out the scanīs of the insert and the manaual.

    I second the opinion for neostore for authentication for since it is such a highly converted game.
