Was hoping someone could help me with a Congo conversion question.

I recently picked up one of these kits and have been working on installing it in a Junkyard (another WPC95) cabinet. I have all of the wiring squared away, but might have an issue with the roms. The kit I got doesn’t seem complete (based on some pics I found in Pinside of another one that was sold years ago), and only came with 6 sound roms, a cpu rom and a g10 security chip. I think the sound/cpu roms I got might be specific to a wpcs cab conversion and not right for a wpc95 cab conversion, but I’m not positive.

My question is if I’m right, but go ahead and install sound/cpu roms in wpc95 cab, can I do any damage by powering it on to see if it works (which I haven’t done yet)?

Also, if these are the wrong roms for wpc95 boards, is there someone out there that can burn me the roms I need?

According to ipdb congo is a wpc95 game - so the chips should be fine in a wpc95 cpu board. I don't see any rom dumps specific to the conversion kit for wpc-s, but an older message on rec.games.pinball indicates that these do exist.

If your chips are specifically for the wpc-s version you should get those dumped since neither planetary nor ipdb has them listed, nor do they seem to be integrated into pinmame (at least the older verison I have) - usually pinmame is pretty good about have all the versions known supported.

Hey there! Got a moment?
