Frequently Asked Questions

How does this work?
Select the game you wish to personalize from the drop down. Make your personalizations, view the preview on the left, and then add to cart if you're satisfied.
Your customizations will be burned onto a ROM chip which will be shipped to you. Then it's just a matter of swipping the ROM chip on your game's PCB.
Is the modification permanent?
Nope! All of the ROM chips are socketed. So if you want to revert the modification you just remove the personalized ROM chip and re-install the original one.
How do I install the ROM chip?
All of the ROM chips are socketed. You only need a flat blade screw driver or similar tool to help you lift the existing ROM chip from the socket so you can install the personalized one.

Why does Galaga require two ROM replacements?
One ROM chip contains your personalizations, and the other contains a modification to allow them to load.
Normally, Galaga does a ROM "checksum" test on boot up to ensure the ROMs have the correct data. However, this checksum will fail when your personalizations are present. The second ROM chip includes a modification to bypass the "checksum" to allow the game to boot.
