MV1 FZ motherboard language question

Hi, I just recently got aneo geo MV1 FZ motherboard for my cab but all the games I play are running in Japanese. Is there any way this can be changed?

language is determined by the bios chip. It's socketed on a 1FZ so you can exchange that JP bios with another. US or uni bios or whatever. Someone on here will likely be able to sort you out or you can buy a unibios chip here

Hi, I'm new to these forums so this is my first post! I have 3of US or EURO BIOS which I've removed from MV-1FZ motherboards to replace with a UniBIOS.

I'm in Scotland - I can post you one for free if you've not ordered a UniBIOS already?

Hey Rossyra! Thanks for the kind welcome. Was playing MSHvsSF just at the weekend there. Really chuffed with the board you sold me, thanks again! Managed to sell my Phoenixed blue board too.

I'll post in the intro thread when I get a sec. Been reading these forums for ages so thought it was time I signed up!

@IDCHAPPY & johnbud, hmm, this thread is getting a bit Scottish. Bit fishy too, a Scotsman offering to give something away for free? :lol: if anyone else wants one of the MVS BIOS I have (FOC obviously) then just let me know. I tried to eBay them a while back but had no interest. I've no need to keep them.

Cheers
