    Metal Slug 3

    hey, my Metal Slug 3 contains two different PCBs.
    The first one is original the second is bootleg, but what is this? Its no real Bootleg and no real original.


    Greetings Alex

    Aw, that sucks! Sorry 'bout the bad luck, TK86079. That's such a great title, too.

    Bootlegedness does not affect playability

    No, It plays perfectly, but I don’t understand why a Bootleg uses one original PCB.

    It's so that if you look through the shell and see only one original PCB, typically people assume the other is legit and don't bother opening it.

    Yes, may be.

    Not sure why someone would do that. I think the most likely scenario here is that the CHA board went bad so someone replaced it with one from a bootleg.

    That sounds more realistic, but when it’s a repaired game, does this makes the game a Bootleg also?

    Wouldn’t the person have the other legit board? Why just get rid of a legit board? I think the other board being damaged is a more likely theory.

    "Bootlegedness" most certainly can affect playability, depending on how well or poorly the bootleg was created.

    But, for TK86079's sake, I hope it does play flawlessly.

    It's weird though. You're right -- you have half a real cart. Looks like the shell isn't original either, right? This cart could possibly be considered a repair instead of a full blown bootleg.

    The shell looks original to me, it’s the same as my KoF 99 has. Did they repair games with copy cards?
    Sounds interesting, when it is not a real Bootleg.
