2. 2 boards,no markings, 44 pin.
3. A-17 printed on board near connector, 44pin.
4. 2 boards,sticker says 000902, KGR-A printed at top, 56 pin.
thanks
Brett

Why don't you just use http://coinop.org/RomId.aspx All you need to do is just read one of the eproms, save it to file, upload it to the site and search :unsure It will tell you what board/game the eprom belongs to.

I think the reason Bretty posted the thread was because he doesnt have a eprom programmer.

The best way I find is reading a rom then using clr mame pro to identify.

Probibly best to find some one with a programer, Send them some chips, they ID them, Then return the chips! :)

Terra Cresta with crappy cheapo YM2208 sound chip common to bootlegs.
I just fixed up one of these for Tom removing the crappy sound chip rider board and sticking a YM3526 like whats on the original PCBs, you also have to reprogram 3 roms. The crappy chip only uses 2 roms while the YM3526 uses 3 27128s.
Funnily enough he bought this pcb off you from ebay which looked like it was dragged through mud :D. Needless to say i brought it back from the dead.
attached are some before and after shots.
