actually it's just a standard 1980-ish TAITO PCB with ROMs and a 68705.
Nothing too special there, except the $5500 price tag
And yes, I paid all of it..... let me explain.

The DU generated $1200 towards it, I ***LOANED*** the rest including 2 lots of postage and other expenses like Paypal fees and bank fees and it was agreed it would be paid back over time.
Just after that I sent Smitdogg around 2 dozen items (mostly Sega Megaplay carts and NAOMI GDROMs plus a few Raiden Fighters boards) to sell on ebay to generate funds to go towards paying me back (I can't easily re-sell items here). I would have sent more assuming things went well. The total generated was also about $1200. I had believed the money was held securely in Smitdoggs bank account. About a year later I found out he blew all of it on clones and other useless rubbish (now you know how DU items were being bought even though not enough donations were coming in). I probably would have even accepted that $1200 as full payment and dumped it if he had made an effort to actually pay the money back but things went from bad to worse canceling all future plans.
So the donations are nulled out by the money generated from selling my items.... $1200 - $1200 = $0
Meaning I own it outright. As many of you know I take great pleasure in torturing peasants especially ones who fuck me over and as a result you're highly unlikely to ever see a dump from this board out in the wild unless someone buys it from me for $5500.
I can only suggest you elect a better leader who isn't out of control and who knows how to handle money and spend it wisely on important purchases so this doesn't happen again in the future.
