Scorp1s and 2s are different from each other.

And won't work in each other's machines

Even though they have similar arrangement.

Scorp1s came out first.

I'm sure I've seen Scorpion 3 mentioned before, it was a short lived technology used in foreign machines.

I believe scorp 2 roms are encrypted data where scorp 1 is not, think that is why the roms wont work in each others tech!

not really encrypted as such- just the board gets crafty with the address lines between the ROMcard and the control MUX.

yep but makes the rom data effectively encrypted so not easy to even read the alpha ascii data

Would the gameplay still be ok and coin mech except coins ? Is it just the alpha display that wont be right ? Only fools and horses dont have an alpha display its like an animated display

i use a scorp 1 psu to power and test scorp 2 boards, as long as the plug keyway is in the gap in the pins it works fine
