Can you help me verify that this Maniac Mansion chip is a fake?


Recommended Posts

When it came in today, I questioned it because of how white the board is between the contact pins, so I just took it apart and have been looking thru different region releases on Bootgod, but the chip that is circled doesnt appear on any of their examples, so I need the pros to give their opinions please.

Not fake. That is battery backed (I think) RAM chip, not ROM. The base part number even matches what is on bootgod.

LH5160 is low power 8k x 8 SRAM (6264 pinout equivalent) made by Sharp and discontinued many moons ago. Exact markings are gonna vary a little depending on when it was made and which factory made it, but it is definitely not new. Furthermore I see no signs of modification on the board itself.
