LX4 is the latest, original factory ROM revision

The 'X' refers to Export.

Originally, WMS released games with ROMs for multiple markets. LA4 would be American, LG4 would be German, etc.

When the internet became popular, and people started to want to download the ROMs, WMS made the eXport ROMS available for download, as opposed to each and every language. The X ROMs have all coinages, etc in them.

Originally, DM had sound ROMs in U2-U7. U8 and U9 were EMPTY. When the DM 'home' ROMs were leaked (the ones with swearing), the used U8 and U9 as well, and supposedly the audio quality is better as it uses less compression than the original factory ROMs.

I thought the custom ROMs used the factory sound ROMs, but I could be wrong. I didn't think there were special 'demolition time' sound ROMs.

Negatory, the U2-U9 for the 'adult' speech are completely different than the regular ROMs - you don't just pull the last 2.

Odds are, the L-1 U2-U7 sound ROMs are all you need for the sound
And the LX4 CPU ROM is what you need in the CPU board

Odds are, you have what you need.

If the one labeled LX4 isn't really LX4, then all you'd need is the LX4 CPU ROM.

Quoted from weaverj:

he didn't have any ideas except try another lx4.
