Some very good info on these at http://www.system16.com/cybercade/, Q sound boards are second only to CPS3 for being a suicide battery nightmare. They can be 'phoenixed' but the process is quite involved afaik.
Thanks for the info/link :)

Yeah my board has been 'phoneixed'. It also had something done to the audio but I can't remember what :? I wish the sales thread with the info was still alive.
The audio board and the C board both have to be phoenixed. Each one has a suicide battery.

Curious to bump this thread since Battlesmurf just sold one on eBay and the system16 site is a 404.

How could one tell the difference between a legit, in case or not, and a boot/conversion board?

A legit board is going to have mask roms for graphics data. Another sign is the PAL security chip (rather than a GAL replacement). Also, all CPS1.5 boards are four layers instead of the three layers of CPS1.

The RCA sockets are a dead giveaway for a legit board too.

Japanese boards never have mask roms. But here the discussion was about US/Euro boards which always have at least a few mask roms for the gfx data. In other words, Cadillacs & Dinosaurs has mask roms, Cadillacs Kyouryuu Shinseiki has eproms.
Im running games with a vga to tv converter on my Shangai Novel, with composite and it looks amazing, Im not interested in RGB or Scart.
