Technical

The original Z80 processor is moved from the original boardset to the IMulti PacI board and various chips are replaced removed. It is concievable that a boardset with bad ROMs could be repaired by installing this kit because of the extent of the upgrade.

Fixes

Earlier revisions of the board had flaws that would cause corrupt graphics and unplanned bridging of different games. Very few units were produced with that flaw and a replacement chip was provided quickly.
