Taito G-Net BIOS Flashing Instructions

Taito G-Net BIOS Flashing Instructions. The newer games that are written to Compact Flash require this BIOS update to run.

V2.0 BIOS archive here.


Extract > Burn to M27C800 > Remove PCMCIA card from Mobo > Bridge Jumper JP1 > Insert M27C800 > Power on > wait for a couple of minutes.

There will be a few progress bars across the screen. The first indicates the flash, the second (no idea) and the third validates the flash. After it has completed there are two lines of Japanese text asking to remove the EPROM and jumper, insert a game card and reboot. Job done.

Thanks to Dave_K. for the images.
