So, I found two circuit boards near the highway, after determining that they are rom boards for the SNES, I decided to see if I could get them fixed.
The results were better than expected, however cosmetically, they look like a couple of counterfeits.


This was just after the initial cleanup on both boards, and testing them to find out that they both are still in perfect working order! This came as a surprise, considering everything that could have possibly caused permanent damage to this things, near a HIGHWAY of all things.
The battery had been forcibly removed from one, which I had determined was Donkey Kong Country 2.


Street fighter 2.
Printed the label myself. It's not perfect, but it does it's job.


DKC2, just installed a new battery holder onto the board, and clicked in a CR2032 battery.
Save data works perfectly fine now, and the game plays exactly as it should! :D


Same deal as the SF2 label, however I took better care with applying this one.
It's still not perfect, and looks like a counterfeit, especially with the serial code referencing the wrong game, but it does it's job all the same. Took some trial and error to get the size right.


And of course, where would I be without the back warning label that nobody gives a crap about?

So, allnall, this project was a success. and much to my surprise, went off without a hitch.
I'm glad. I know it's not worth anything in it's current condition, but it's still a playable, legal, copy.

This is going to a friend, whom I know will give it the care it deserves.

Nifty work, as usual. Letting someone abuse a copy of Donkey Kong Country 2 is quite a horrible thing, and I'm glad you were able to breathe new life into it!
Course clear! You got a card.

That Street Fighter 2 cart still isn't claimed. I'd make you the same deal if you like.

Thanks - I'll think about it! I still need to talk to you about fixing my Super NES someday, too.

Seems that I should have the part for that thing around here somewhere, thinking about it. Assuming the situation doesn't have an easier fix of course. I'm 100% confident that I can do that at this point. Just need to find my game bit drivers.

As for SF2, I have it safely concealed in an air-tight vacuum bag. This thing ain't going anywhere, And it should be safe in there. (For that matter, it could be on a ship that capsized and it would still function properly assuming the bag wasn't damaged.)
