It's not to say that someone couldn't burn EPROMs and put stickers on them. But who would take a working cart with legit chips, rip them out and replace w/EPROMs? The boards are original SNK, the Toshiba chips are legit, that's how you can tell it is not a boot.
It's an SNK repair job, I have a Garou with a repair job just like it(including the wire). Cover those holes with tape.Garou MOTW Boot or Repair?
Has some sound issues. While I'm doing the clean and check chip connections dance, anyone care to chime in with their thoughts of this being a boot or a repair or what?
