Capcom CPS1 B21 chips in the wild

Do you own any Capcom CPS1 games with a dead or faulty graphics chip? UTsource is holding onto a large new original stock of B21 chips aka DL-0921. According to the listing the stock is at least 86000 units, enough supply for several lifetimes I guess.

To validate the listing I bought a couple of samples and the thing seems definitely real.

  1. Saludos Eduardo, ando buscando las roms modificadas para funcionar con el B21.
    Mi contacto de Arcade Vintage me ha dicho que te preguntara por aquí.
    Un saludo

    1. Hola Nexus, a que roms modificadas te refieres? Para usar B21 sin bateria? Un saludo

  2. Me refiero a los juegos como el Mercs, Area 88, Final Fight, 1941, Lost Worlds, que funcionan con diferentes chips como el B17, B14.
    Se que ya hay gente q ha modificado el código de las EPROMs y la Pal de la placa B para hacerlas funcionar con el B 21 más común de encontrar

    1. Entiendo, muy buenas noticias. De las roms modificadas o donde encontrarlas no se nada. Suerte con la busqueda.

  3. I bought 10 of these back in maybe June or earlier, 2018. I asked again a month later and they said they had no more. They also had a listing for CPS-A-01, but when I inquired, they said they also did not have the A-01's. Good job getting some of their stock...maybe they found some more. :)

  4. I should also add that I have repaired a couple faulty CPS1 C boards with these chips, and they work great. :) :)

  5. Hi Eduardo,
    I found CPS-A-01 chips as well as CPS-B-21 and other B chips 2 years ago:

    Sad to see information doesn't circulate in the arcade world.
