There are different versions - some do have lots of chips.

Is this guy trying to scam me? Battle Circuit only doesn't come in a USA romset right?

Also, the lack of battery means it must be Pheonixed cause I don't see an infinikey.

"The label is repo, eproms all original. Currently suicide free,But if you need it,I reinstall the battery."

Huh?

That’s a bit of an oddity :wtf: You have Mask ROMs (so it’s not a conversion). And while those ‘red number’ EPROM seals are less common…at least some of them look legit. However, EPROM seals 01, 02, 03, 04 and 07 look off – the Capcom font doesn’t match and the text looks too fat. I’d assume all of those have been reburnt and/or have repro labels.

I believe the InfiniKey installs underneath this board revision (93646B-7). However, there definitely is no (legitimate) USA region…so you wouldn’t be able to use an InfiniKey, anyway. Likewise, there is no USA Phoenix data/EPROMs.

Some people have hacked CPS2 games to regions they weren’t originally released in. So, I’m guessing this has been changed to USA using hacked decrypted ROMs? :think:

Do Limenko Power System 2 (Legend of Heroes, Dynamite Bomber, Super Bubble 2003) carts have socketed roms? And are they windowed?

And the motherboard should have a volume adjustment dial (like a gameboy's volume adjustment), not a pot way in that one needs a screwdriver to adjust, correct?

I have a feeling I was sold a converted cart and a repaired motherboard.

Also all MVS games had mask roms from the factory, right?

If you look at the chips marked 232 that is the Neo game number, I haven’t checked but I would assume it’s KOF97.

System16 states Yamato is a SEGA Z80 PCB. The image at the top of the page is different.

https://www.system16.com/hardware.php?id=688

It also looks similar to this one on eBay which is sold as a bootleg.

If it's bootleg then it's a good one, the pcb style, traces etc remind me of my system2 boards, just the color is different... It would not surprise me if this was an original maybe someone else can shed some more light

SEGA board are silk screened on one of the edges, at least all the ones I've seen. Something like this from the same year.

Could be a legitimate board from a different territory.
