I am reverse engineering ASDER 20 in 1 multicart.
While the 4 Mbit PRG memory has pinout the same like 27c040, 2Mbit CHR has quite weird pinout. Do you know name of any eprom chip with same pinout?

It's not too different from the 40-pin 16-bit data bus UVEPROMs. (e.g. look at 27C4100 and 27C4096) By which I mean "address bus mostly in order" and "data bus in order if you skip the high byte".

But I don't know of an exact match.

I was digging around some more and found this random pinout reference of a bunch of ROMs used on a bunch of random arcade boards. Most of them are similar to the JEDEC standard pinout, but this is conspicuously different:
Code:
(4M) 512k x 8 mask rom
       HN62304

A8   1 +-v-+ 32  A9
A7   2 |   | 31  A10
A6   3 |   | 30  A11
A5   4 |   | 29  A12
A4   5 |   | 28  A13
A3   6 |   | 27  A14
A2   7 |   | 26  A15
A1   8 |   | 25  A16
oe?  9 |   | 24  A17
gnd 10 |   | 23  A18
ce? 11 |   | 22  gnd
D0  12 |   | 21  A0
D1  13 |   | 20  D7
D2  14 |   | 19  D6
D3  15 |   | 18  D5
+5v 16 +---+ 17  D4

I find it amusing that this is clearly a 16-bit ROM where they've just chosen to not wire bond D8-D14, and wire bonded /BYTE to ground internally.

krzysiobal: Could you please check whether game number 14 (Benico) has graphical errors during the attract mode that plays after waiting at that individual game's title screen for a few seconds?

Yes, it has.
Here is my fix:
