Faulty Air Buster PCB arrived yesterday. Had garbage on the screen and locks up. Turns out there is a GAL controlling the enable lines and A14 lines of some key eproms. No valid dump in MAME so guess its another one for the parts pile  :(

Fraid so - even if you find or can borrow the right GAL you are not likely to be able to get the code out of it. I detest boards like this, no doubt the circuit emulated by the GAL is pretty simple but who knows. Bought a quite expensive Thunder Hoop board only to find a dead PAL that served the same function.

Just came this morning when the postman knocked on & gave me a parcel.
I got it from e-bay USA
It contained a Wico joystick adaptor for the TI 99 4a so I can plug-in a atari compatible joystick, going to test it later.

Sega Dreamcast still hasn't arrived. Will give them another day or so and then I'll drop them an email. Would love to have for the weekend.
