    Genesis Help with Panorama Cotton translated repro

    Hi, I recently have built a repro of the translated version of Panorama Cotton.
    I played the game up to the 2nd stage and it seems to be working fine.
    Unfortunately, I'm getting grabbled text on the cutscenes:

    It looks like the even characters are getting the left and right parts switched.
    I have reviewed the PCB I assembled a dozen times and couldn't find what's wrong.
    I've tested with a Tectoy Megadrive 2, a TecToy Megadrive 3, and a clone with the SE93, SE94 & SE95 chipsets with the same results.

    Here's how the repro I did looks like:

    20210905_100135.jpg

    Nothing professional, just for my own use, but I would like to have it working fine.
    Can someone please throw some light here on what can be wrong?
    Or is it a known bug with the translation?

    Thanks in advance.

    Ok, I managed to finish the game with a Game Genie code: RYZA-G6YE.
    It crashed at the staff screen.
    Does it mean the problem is on the 2nd ROM bank?
    Thanks in advance.

    Bingo!
    That was it.
    Specifically the ROM containing the "High" bytes of the 2nd bank.
    Unfortunatelly I'm unable to post pictures from my crappy cellphone after some updates I installed, so no pictures.
    Thanks for everyone that at least had read this thread.
