Just a quick (but quite important) fix.Got from my friend Josef this spare Capcom C-BOARD with CPS-B-01 ASIC on it:

CPS-B-01_C-BOARD(1)

Whatever game I tried with it, I got sprites issues.Strider for example:

Strider_sprites_issues

I was pretty sure the CPS-B-01 ASIC was bad, it’s very prone to failure IC but I decided to have a look at it.Doing a continuity test with my multimeter on solderside of the C-BOARD I found two broken traces:

broken_traces_1

I promptly patched them with some AWG30 wire:

patched_traces

This restored correct sprites:

fixed_sprites
