    Neo Driftout Cryptic Description

    Keeping an eye on this and want to add it to my library:

    https://www.ebay.com/itm/Neo-Driftou...r/293049025028

    The only thing that worries me is the description:

    "board is not an original sink board"

    I take it he means SNK? The boards look original to me, i see SNK stamped on both of them.

    Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

    It has eproms and is obviously a boot. Do research on what an official copy looks like before you buy.

    This is why i ask; i didn't know these things! So someone re-used the boards from another game, slapped on some Eproms to make this game?

    I have only seen boots so far with non-SNK boards. Interesting...

    Yup, before China started making their own pcbs it was pretty common for bootleggers to take a cheap game like Fatal Fury 3 and swap the rom chips out for eproms.

    That Slug 3 is legit. Having one eprom is pretty normal, it could either be a repair or an update.
    Whatcha gonna do?
