Does the CPS2 system have different PAL chips on the various carts? If so, does anyone have a list of them? I'm having troubles finding it through Google/Yahoo searches.

Thanks!

That chart is for cps1. But yes different games use different pal chips. Some games can use a few different pal chip revisions. Some need a specific one. I had a list at one time. I'll see if I can find it. Mainman might be able to help also.

I know that the PAL at 9J is a BGS-B3E for 19XX... I wonder what the other games take.

I have a 3 or 4 carts in the storage building and will document what those have in it along with the jumper settings. I'm just surprised that the information isn't already out on the web somewhere.

Here's what I've got:

GAME ----------------------------- PAL REV.

SSF2X -------------------------------B
MSH----------------------------------F
MVC----------------------------------G
SFZ2---------------------------------F or D (mostly D)
DD: TOD-----------------------------B
XMEN: COTA------------------------F
SSF-----------------------------------1ST REV. (NO LETTER, JUST BGS-B3)
VH-------------------------------------F
SFZ------------------------------------E
MVS-----------------------------------G
SFZ2A---------------------------------D (assume F may work also)
SPF------------------------------------B
DIMAHOO-----------------------------G
SGemF---------------------------------G
M!PNG---------------------------------F
BATLCIRC-----------------------------D

DKSTKRS-------------------------------D
CSC-------------------------------------F

I added it to the list above. I meant to add it to my list before posting. I did most of this list last year so I had to go back and open the games I acquired in the last year. I got 19XX a few months back but didn't open it. Pretty sure its the same as yours. If anyone has any games not listed, please add them.

Also, the single board CPS2 pcbs use pals also. I'm not sure if they are different between games. MVC singleboard uses a PAL labeled "C2VA3". It is the socketed one at 15J. If anyone has Gigawing, 1944 (I think exists) or Hyper Anniversary single-board pcbs please confirm they are the same.
