This is another cool project. I had read where it was possible to add the AES BIOS to your MVS PCB so you could access some of the game features not available to MVS. It also gives you the ability to switch between English and Japanese, so you can play "Flying Power Disc" instead of "Windjammers". That's worth the price of admision alone!
As it turns out, Jeff Kurtz sells this as a kit with instructions on how to do it. You can order the BIOS with or without the wiring and the switches, I ordered mine without. This is a quick rundown on how the install went.
|If you order the kit without switches, this is what you get. A new BIOS chip and instructions.|
|You will also need a soldering iron.|
|18 Gauge Wire, black and two other colors. You will need approximately 2 feet of each color.|
|Two Single Pole Single Throw (SPST) switches. Make sure they are not momentary switches.|
|Wire strippers / cutters|
|Philips head screwdriver|
|And optionally, crimpers if you want to do the Molex disconnect as well as teh molex connector and pins of your choice.|
