PCB documentation update

Today, I have uploaded a major update on the documentation of PCB boards. This is the second step in my long term plan to make SNES Central more database centric. With this update, there are a total of 170 PCB types documented, with more complete information than what was previously on the pages. This is the first of two updates, there will be another one soon with more prototype boards.

Wata grading prototypes

Lately, a number of prototypes, authenticated by Wata, have shown up in my Ebay searches. However, it would be charitable to call these "prototypes", and I have written up an article to show why I do not think they should be in the business of authenticating prototypes, because they do not know what they are doing.

Total Carnage prototype

This is the fourth of four prototypes in the current lot I am releasing. This one is probably the most interesting of them. This is a late prototype of Total Carnage, which is notable because it lacks the censorship of the final version.

Lucky Luke prototype

This is a near final prototype of Lucky Luke. It has only about 30000 bytes difference from final, and I assume only has some minor bugs that were fixed in the final version.

Jimmy Connors Pro Tennis Tour prototype

The next prototype on the docket is a German localization prototype of Jimmy Connors Pro Tennis Tour. I suspect that this prototype is a build that post-dates the final US release. From my short playthrough, I could not see any differences from final.

Magic Boy Prototype

I have a few prototypes in the queue, the first I am releasing is Magic Boy. The gameplay in this prototype appears to be near final, but it has a completely different soundtrack. Many thanks to Anonymous for sending the prototype to me!
