Trying to keep my budget as small as possible. I know I have to put some money into it but want to keep it low as I can if possible. Unfortunately donor carts seem cheaper for most repros than buying blank PCB boards, CIC chips, other chips needed and shells. From what Ive found anyways.
One of my main questions is about eproms. Cant decide what to get. Id like to get eproms that are most universal. Could I just use the 27C2001 2Mbit chips? I know they are 32 pin but if they were 28 couldnt I just not use last 4 pins?

That is where I got kinda confused and made me wonder if I could use 27C2001 to make about any cart?In conclusion, get 27C020 or 27C2001 EPROMs if you can, to ensure compatibility with your intended game. All TL/TS/TKROM games use 128kB or 256kB (so 1Mbit or 2Mbit) ROMs. If you get 2MBit EPROMs, you can still use them with 1Mbit games. I'll explain how later.
What wire and solder would any of you recommend? I took apart a ethernet cat5e wire and it has thin wire that might be good to use for repros. I have 40/tin 60/lead 4oz, 113 g. solder. Think Ill need to go smaller.
Any info or suggestions on any of this would be great. Learning more and more everyday. Thanks so much!
