- 6th March 2004: Tomasz Slanina - Few more pics/infos about Renju Kizoku (it's GO). There are still gfx glitches, tile banking is uknown atm. No sound - custom hardware ? There's no typical cpu/video/sound hw on the PCB (except uPD6376 DAC). Unknown 208 pinQFP (surface scratched off) is the CPU + GFX generator + sound (It's Seta custom ST-0016 or derivative): CPU - Z80 core, Sound - custom, probably 8 channels PCM ? and Video - custom, sprite (maps, rows, single sprites) based (similar to SSV).
