VF3 to VF3tb conversion?

    Hey guys, I have two VF3 vanilla Model 3 boards, I'd like to convert at least 1 of them to TB. Do I just need to burn some different roms, or is there a security chip as well? Has anyone done this? Any tips appreciated!

    There is no security dongle, you can convert.

    Only later games like fighting vipers 2 make use of the security dongle.

    Thanks for the replies fellas. IC1-4 are maskroms though, do you know what kind of EPROM I need to use? I am guessing 27C322?

    I would have to look at my board when I get a chance, it's at my friend's shop right now. I will look at it next time I go there which is this Tuesday coming up I will take pictures of the rom board for ya.

    Hey, thanks for that! I noticed though you have maskroms for IC1-4, the VF3tb romset has a different rom 1-4 than vanilla VF3...so is your board an official VF3TB conversion and not a homemade conversion?

    VF3tb has 4 different graphics roms and 4 different program roms. Once those 8 roms are changed, your VF3 Befores VF3tb, I converted my Virtua Fighter 3 Version C to Team Battle.

    Found the PM I had sent someone to get the roms burned for the conversion:

    (8 roms total):

    These are all size 524288.

    These are all size 4194304.

    Video of the converted board in action can be seen here:

    Awesome, can you tell me what kind of EPROMs you used for 1-4? I have a burner and I can follow directions but I'm not the brightest yet about the differences between the roms except I know they have different sizes, haha
