    Hi guys.

    Picked this up recently, thought the cart housing looked strange so took a chance on it, Opened it up and was presented with this

    [​IMG]

    It is a Nintendo Famicom game, do we think it’s a proto or a bootleg?

    I haven’t been able to test it yet but I believe it’s Cosmic Genesis.

    Oh and I have now covered the EPROM windows

    vintage 1980's very well made bootleg. it's got to be as the switch on the board which is to switch between two different games.

    the really cool thing about it is that you could probably pull out those eproms and put your own games in kind of like a very awkward everdrive

    Oh and if I'm not mistaken one of the eproms looks like it's had the information sanded off. a classic case of stolen bootleg 1980's chips! :D :D

    that quality workmanship on the board has been lost now, on the bootleggers that just produce any old cheap s*** on plastic

    How could you tell that from one picture? Without seeing the opposite side you can't tell what the switch is connected to. While it could be for switching games it could also be a switch to control nametable H/V mirroring.
