The ORIGINAL Decapping Project
Established 2008 by Guru
Decapping Status Page
Yes this is the original Decapping Project. I'm aware of an amateur who has ripped off the info here and tried to make it look like they are 'The Decapping Project', listing the very same chips (in some cases extremely rare chips that don't exist any where else except here) on a really shitty text-only web page reminiscent of 1995 web sites, and a couple of others who are trying desperately to make it look like this site doesn't exist by posting the ripped-off site link on forums. Sorry bud, you failed. Everyone (including CAPS0ff) already knows those chips came from me (just check the visitor log at the bottom of this page) and everyone already knows this site is The HOME of The Decapping Project. Additionally, decapping info/pics etc can be obtained directly from the CAPS0ff blog so that crappy web page isn't even needed. You guys are hilarious! Better luck next time!

Decapped Namco Custom 54xx (Fujitsu MB8842 MCU)

Last Updated: 7th July 2017 - #156, C-Chip from Operation Wolf decapped and D78C11 ROM extracted!
Some issues remain with the (unique to each game) 27C64 EPROM dump but it's a great start to a difficult task.

Total chips possible: 262
Total chips successfully decapped and/or processed so far: 125

With the successful 'decap dumping' of the MCU from Bubble Bobble, it got me thinking if I could do this with a few more chips. Thus I decided to set up 'The Decapping Project'. Note there have been MANY successes since then.
I sent some Namco custom chips to Japan to a lab (50xx, 51xx, 52xx, 53xx, 54xx) and they were decapped and dumped and that started it off.
In a time where MAME is basically stuck in a rut and doing nothing important anymore, this page is MY SOLE EFFORT to increase decapping of IC's to push MAME forward with improved emulation. Regardless of what happens or how I go about it, IT HAS MADE A DIFFERENCE. To those morons who don't like this, I say please go live your boring life somewhere else. Thankyou!
If you think this is a good idea and want to help, please support this effort with needed funds and chips if you can :-)

The Problem:
The development of some games in MAME is sometimes not accurate or has come to a halt because of missing code from protection devices. Emulation problems exist because custom chips on PCBs contain special code that is usually protected and therefore undumpable and the game will not work correctly without that code. Trying to fake that chip by simulating it with guessed code is not always the best way and sometimes isn't even possible at all.

The Solution:
One method used to defeat this kind of protection is to decap the chip and extract the 'bits' using manual extraction methods. This means (in basic terms) the top of the chip is removed using fuming nitric acid then rinsed with acetone (and repeated many times) until the chip die is exposed. Then the chip is placed under a microscope and magnified pics are taken of the chip die (usually X100 or greater magnification) and the resulting images are processed manually to obtain the contents of the ROM. Unfortunately this method is time consuming, requires expensive equipment and is extremely hazardous to health (and we value our vital body parts like fingers and eyes dearly). So we are using the services of a professional decapping laboratory to help us with the decapping and magnification tasks. The total cost for each chip is US$200. This is a special price that I have negotiated with the decapping lab. This includes decapping and enough X100 pics to give us the image of the ROM. Compared to buying the equipment ourselves (possibly around US$50000+) and dealing with the dangers involved, that cost is quite reasonable :-)

The Rules:
One of the main issues with decapping is that this method of data extraction can only be done with chips that contain MASKROM, it doesn't work for EPROM. In layman terms, MASKROM is kind of like an image of 0's and 1's that is 'moulded' into the chip die when it is manufactured. Those 0's and 1's are easy to see when magnified and given some time and experience can be decoded to produce binary code and/or data. This usually only works with older chips as many newer microcontrollers have added layers of protection and stealth that can defeat decapping methods and require much more effort and expense.
Update: In addition to that, a new rule now comes into effect. The new rule is there are no rules. Technology is available to lift the bits directly off the substrate using micro-probing. This technology is now available to us and will probably be used widely for many of the ICs listed below.

The Myths:
Regardless of whether we're successful with a particular chip or not, decapping is a fool-proof method that gives us a 100% solution of gained knowledge. There is no other way to know for sure about the contents of any custom chip except to decap the chip and find out what's inside. Some people say it's possible to probe chips, figure out what type they are, then wire them up and dump them or blackbox them using an army of logic analysers. Many of those people have not actually produced any evidence of this and are not living in the real world. The only way to obtain the truth is 'The Right Way(tm)'

The Participants:
The chips we're mostly concerned about are Micro-Controller Units aka MCU's or custom chips from mid 80's to late 90's arcade games containing ROM code that isn't dumpable using normal methods.
Some chips are known as ASICs. These are Application Specific IC's that may or may not have internal ROM. Decapping is the only way to find out for sure. You can read more about ASICs here
After some research by me, below is a list of chips that have been determined as possible candidates for decapping with additional info showing the games that used those chips and the status of the decapping effort.

    Update (2015)
    After several years of no activity we have given up on the guy who was doing our decapping.
    To the morons posting negative comments on reddit etc: Please note he did not care if his name was known or not. I, yes, I alone decided to keep it private so no one would know WHERE I was getting this done so people would not bug the guy directly. I was the only person contacting him, I was the original instigator of the decapping deal and no one else knows any of the real details of what went down. So to those idiots that say he wanted his name kept secret, you are so wrong on so many levels you are not even on this planet. The comments from some devs (i.e. mooglyguy, haze and other sit-stirring scumbags) back-peddling and trying to distance themselves or MAMEDEV in general from my efforts/comments and saying I was never a member of MAMEDEV are also hilarious! Wow dudes, you backstabbing pieces of dog shit. Anyone who receives the list email IS A MEMBER OF MAMEDEV. I've been receiving the list emails since I was invited to join around 2000 and that was primarily so I could get easy access to the FTP and all of the ROMs. Of course now everything is very easily accessible everywhere, MAME is done and basically dead, all source code changes are immediately available via Github and new ROM dumps filter through to the net in a day or two. The mailing list and/or MAMEDEV membership has no interest for me now (especially all the whiney messages from haze and mooglyguy & other assholes who do almost nothing that I just deleted which was 99% of the 'discussion' on the list anyway). Regardless of whether you realize or not, I made a REAL difference to emulation over the last 15 years, which is more than anyone can say about that piece of shit code called MAME's N64 emulation. You guys and the entertaining trash posts on reddit are fucking amazing!! If you think I'm unprofessional then clearly you don't have a fucking clue. I suggest you go crawl back under that rock you were under and let the people who really have the power to change the world get on with it!

    This is what really happened.... I contacted the guy (maybe about 2008/2009 I don't remember exactly but it was sometime around there) and asked if he would decap some chips for me. He was sympathetic towards emulation and agreed to help if I covered his net expenses which was about $200 per chip. I agreed and sent some chips to him and some funds via paypal and also set up the decap.mameworld web site so it looked like "he" was doing it. The reality was everything on the site was done at this end. Think about it, this guy is running a business and doing his work and my work and other work, he doesn't have time to update some piss-hole-in-the-ground emulation web site with work-in-progress pics etc to impress the emulation community. He has zero interest in the emulation community. Apart from all of that he was a loose cannon that could easily explode at any time. He sent me the pics either via email or I downloaded them from a link he sent me (the big die pics were over 100 megs each) and they were passworded .rar files with the password being "deathraycannon" with reference to his FIB, and it was all done here to get the community to notice what was going on and spur on enthusiasm for the Decapping Project. I asked if he wanted me to send all the chips or just a few and he said to just send everything and he would get to it. The idea being he would set up to do one kind of chip then pump all of that kind of chip out in one go and that's exactly what he did. Also note, most of the chips were either donated specifically for decapping or taken from junk dead PCBs (I had access to thousands of junk or useless PCBs), so it did not worry me that I was sending them all in one hit or sending too many.... apart from a few important ones (where all but a couple were successfully done) they were junk anyway. Some of the stranger more obscure chips were sent to be decapped more for curiosity than anything else (just like PALs are dumped for repairing PCBs even though they are not used in MAME) and the guy was keen to just decap them all and do a 100X photo of the die so we would know what they really were. The internal cost to do this is a bit of time and some fuming nitric acid and then taking a few pics of the die under a microscope. Plus it's really nice to look at 100X pics of ICs :-)

    As usual there's always some pessamistic morons who complain on forums and make up B.S. in an attempt to hinder progress. The comment on reddit from haze (5 years after the event) where he says he 'warned' me about sending too many chips is pure fiction. Nothing was said because no one knew anything except me and anyway, I am in control here not some whiney backstabbing C programmer who knows nothing about hardware. haze donated nothing. haze did not own any of the chips that were in the decap list. haze knew nothing about the decapping deal or what was happening at the time. haze had no stake in the organisation of the Decapping Project and haze has never owned a real PCB or donated towards emulation **ever** so he has ZERO influence over dumping or decapping decisions. I'm sure if I had sent less chips then less chips would have been decapped. I got a lot done because the decapping guy had a lot to choose from. Sure the easy ones were done first, but that's where we all like to start. Just like there are plenty of devs (haze included) who don't look at certain games and fix the MAME code because it's hard and there are easier low-hanging fruit(s) available. In short haze is just a whiney shit-stirring scumbag and this is yet more typical haze trash-talking in a feeble attempt to sound important. Dude, here's a tip... stick to the things you are good at (i.e. emulation), keep quiet and let other people get on with the things they are good at.

    So anyway, this good work continued for a while and some good things were done. Everyone was happy and all was going well, with about 25% of the chips processed. A while later it started to slow down and chips were not getting processed, most likely due to the decap guy getting a lot more money doing other work. He also damaged several chips including breaking the micro-wires on some 68705 MCUs and he wrecked one of the Taito C- Chips (evidence of his destruction surfaced years later on the site of caps0ff) and I really needed him to fix those and get dumps because they were very difficult to replace. He assured me he would fix them and dump them but the C-Chip was trashed because he milled down the plastic package too much and took off part of the circuit so we had to get another chip, which we did. Near 'the end' in 2011 he would always give me some B.S. I would ask if he was going to do any chips for me or if he had fixed those damaged chips yet or if he was working on any other chips for me and he would always say "Yes, let's knock some chips out" (his exact words). But nothing would actually be done. He stopped responding to my requests soon after that at the end of 2011 then disappeared, basically refusing to do anything for us even though HE RECEIVED A LOT OF DONATED MONEY. The decap.mameworld web site was pulled soon after that to stop further donations going to him.
    This is the sad part... he was paid to do this work and he took it and ran. So we have been royally screwed by him. While most chips were not important, some of them were and this resulted in those PCBs becoming scrap because donated chips were taken from them to be decapped in the hope that one day they could be returned to working condition using the decap-dumps. Even worse, there was a Japanese collector who sent out a rare 68705 from 'Chack'N Pop' with promise of sending more if we were successful, and the decapping guy broke the chip and the Japanese guy was giving me some grief about it. He had this really stupid way of opening up 68705 MCU's. He would put them in a vice and crack the top apart with brute force. The only problem was sometimes the epoxy holding the top on would take some of the legs and bond wires with it when it came off and that damage needed to be repaired by rebonding the wires. He could have fixed the chips if he had wanted to (the micro-wires just needed to be re- bonded) but he was too lazy to do it. Those chips may have just been tossed in the bin or they could have been left lying around somewhere without a top on them making identification extremely difficult. Note evidence of his destruction surfaced years later on the site of caps0ff. Note the Chack'N Pop PCB never left here, only the 68705 MCU was sent. The Chack'N Pop PCB was later returned minus the 68705 MCU to someone I recall named "Eric" who I found out later is Shoutime, who obviously loves a pissing contest because he made a really stupid thread on the mameworld forums and lied about everything he said about me to make himself and the DU look good. The funny thing is he could not possibly have known the details or who was doing the decapping because at that point he had not yet bragged about his collection and he was a nobody. Nowadays we all know he has a lot of arcade games, many undumped ones and is hoarding most of it in an effort to promote himself and his collection. But don't worry, I have archived the entire forum post and you can read my analysis of all of his lies and B.S. on my blog here.

    So if you've read this so far you're probably wondering who this guy is....
    The guy who stole all of our chips is Christopher Tarnovsky and his company is/was FlyLogic Engineering LLC..
    To those who think I'm naming names, it's no secret. He has (or had) a public web site and he is well known for doing this kind of work. He is also active on the net on his blog and other places promoting his business. It's no big guarded secret like some people are saying. This is just the usual trash talking from losers who don't have a clue.
    Regardless, he did not care one way or the other. I was the one who kept his name out of the public eye and I was the one who came up with the name "Dr Decapitator" purely for the web page so people could make the connection between the decapping work and a mysterious identity. However, primarily the identity was kept out of the public eye so people would not bug him directly or try to set up their own decapping project and cause work overload for him. Unfortunately that happened anyway because the MAMEDEV mailing list has more holes than a spaghetti strainer and some of the devs knew from list discussion and sent their own things to him (mostly MESS-related items) and that resulted in work over-load and delays getting the arcade-related chips done. I suppose we can all be thankful that Tarnovsky did at least do some of the things that were sent so it wasn't a complete waste. But he was paid A LOT OF MONEY to do this work and he quit prematurely without even letting me know or offering to return chips. He just stopped replying to my emails.
    It's called 'Name and Shame'. Lighten up people.

    I apologise to anyone who sent us PCB's and chips expecting results but this was not my fault.
    It seems his company was bought by a larger security company called IOActive and he's now the big CEO or something.
    Meaning now he's a multi-millionaire and doesn't give a shit about us plebs. In another web page it said he hasn't worked for IO Active since April 2014 so that information leads us to nowhere. Sadly he's disappeared and taken all of our extremely rare chips with him (assuming he still has them which is unlikely after the sale of his company), so everything listed below that is not already decapped/dumped is irretrievably lost forever unless someone happens to contact the company that bought out Tarnovsky and gets hold of the chips and starts decapping and dumping them and/or paying someone to do it.

    Note the Decapping Project is not dead and not all of the chips were sent to FlyLogic, but in order to continue it will be necessary to find someone who can do the decapping and is reliable. I will probably not be directly involved in any further decapping work. If someone does get hold of the chips and starts doing it again they can easily access this page to get any info they need.

    The bottom line is this whole thing was my effort to make MAME better because no one else had the balls to try. I not only tried, I did it. I'm not too worried about the chips or resulting dead PCBs. Most, if not all of the chips have very little value because they came from dead PCBs that were obtained purely for decapping or taken from the vast pile of crap I have here, and even the PCBs are mostly worthless even when working so I don't feel too bad even if nothing more is done. The reality is only about 1% of the chips/PCBs are worth something, the rest is just junk. I'm happy with what was done and I'm happy I made a big difference to arcade emulation. You should be happy that thanks to people like me who made a serious effort over 15+ years, you can play 30000+ games in MAME for free. Any negative comments about me from here onwards are like water running off a ducks back. I've done what I came here to achieve and very few people can say the same.

    Minor Update: Crossed off all lost chips revealing Tarnovsky's actual trail of destruction.

    Update (6th December 2016)
    A significant number of the chips sent to Tarnovsky for decapping, de-protecting, imaging and/or dumping have been acquired by a group called "Team CAPS0ff". Those guys are doing decapping and chip analysis. They are posting updates on their blog if you are interested to follow the decapping progress.
    To all those concerned, I don’t have a reliable list of recovered chips and information on what I know will be updated here. The chips that came from the company that bought Tarnovsky's company were supplied in varying condition and some were irreparably damaged by Tarnovsky. Most chips have been identified and an inventory has been taken but not all chips are accounted for and some may be lost because Tarnovsky was not particularly careful about organisation and documentation of the chips I sent to him.
    As a gesture of goodwill, CAPS0ff is decapping/dumping the chips for preservation, starting with the Intel i8751 microcontrollers. With additional work from MAMEDEV those dumps will probably improve MAME considerably. Remember everything takes time, and results will vary but any progress is better than the previous situation where nothing was happening. At least we now know some of the chips I sourced for my Decapping Project will eventually be preserved.
    In any case, this is GREAT news :-D
    Note I am not directly involved with this new effort, I am simply keeping this page updated as progress happens.
    Just keep watching this page for GREEN updates with dates after 6th December 2016. There probably won't be any further commentary updates here.

    Vielen danke CAPS0ff für die Zeit und Mühe, die Sie ausgegeben haben und ich danke Ihnen für alle zukünftigen decaps!
Decapping Status
Wanted
Got it. Not posted out yet
Sent for Processing
FAILED/LOST/BlOWN-UP, generally caused by Tarnovsky's lack of care or concern :-/
LOST means the chip was not recovered by CAPS0ff. I'm still hopeful it can be found one day but at this point assume the chip is no longer available and will not be processed.
SUCCESS! :-D
Please return this chip to me if it still works after processing

Chip was damaged by Tarnovsky and some micro-wires were broken. Needs to be re-bonded and then de-protected and read out. Actual chip now will be a ceramic DIP28 package without a top on it, so it will need to be fixed then dumped and then someone will have to figure out which game it belongs to (assuming it is found)

Game: Tatakae Big Fighter (Nichibutsu)

Tarnovsky said it's an 8741 disguised as an 8751 and pin 7 (!EA) has been cut internally to prevent read-out. Actually decapped but Tarnovsky probably just lied about what it was because he damaged it. He had a stupid way of cracking the top off a chip by putting the chip in a vice and applying pressure!! This is also the same reason why several 68705's were damaged. He was either too lazy to fix it or lacked the required skills to fix it.

54 Special DIP64 4x donated live Hitachi CPU epoxy blocks... something to play with ;-)
Update: Scratch 2, now only 2 available

These are 100% dead by now (December 2016), but you can still decap them fully so we know exactly what is inside if you want. If you want to go further, identify all parts and how they are connected so we can try to create a full schematic of it for future re-programming of these things. They must have been externally programmed with the key so the hope it to be able to replace a dead battery and re-program it again so it works. It's not hugely important to actually process these but certainly it would be a valuable learning experience to fully reverse it
Decap & read RAM??? Probably impossible.

All chips below here have been acquired by me (Guru) and will be kept until I find a
suitable person who can decap them, or Team CAPS0ff contacts me directly and asks me
to send the chips they can handle. Note that would probably require additional
funding from the emulation community because the decapping work is very time
consuming and there are costs involved with consumables like acid etc etc
NOTE! This is a work-in-progress! This list is not complete.
More chips will be added in the future. Thanks for your support!
