Taito Legend Of Kage arcade pcb repair

Much like the earlier Tiger Road repair every other line missing in the sprites suggests a double buffered sprite line buffer system, and that one of the buffers have failed.  Handily the sprite ROMs were in sockets already on this board, so I removed them one at a time and booted the board – removing all except IC21 caused additional visual faults, so good chance this was the culprit.


Replacement RAM was fitted and board was 100%.
