Twice today, I've got to the final boss on Midnight Wanderers.  

Some text pops up, announcing this, and the music changes and then just loops.  The character freezes and none of the buttons do anything.


Nawa oh!

Is it fully original or has it been revived?
If so it could be a set of buggy revive ROMs.

I don't know what you mean.  Did these have one of those suicide battery things?

Here's a picture of the ROMz:



Come to think of it, I think some of the colours are a bit off on Don't Pull.

Is there a battery on the C board? If not, it has been de-suicided.

Also, 30,31,35,36 are the EPROMs that need to be reprogrammed to desuicide the game and they look like they have been replaced on your board. I think 17 needs to be programmed if you are changing the region also.

I got hold of the fellow I bought the board from, this is what he said:

Quote From what  I recall it was an all original board with dead battery on the c board. It was desuicided using the roms from here http://www.arcadecollecting.com/dead/

Back then there wasn't the option to replace the battery and reprogram the c board like there is now. I'd check the roms with a programmer if you can to make sure none have bitrot.
