Pirate Talk / Irregularity with Famicom PCB dates?
« on: February 15, 2020, 12:01:47 PM »
Okay, today I learned how to read the PCB dates on (Super) Famicom PCBs.

However, I'm confused by a date like EL860339C (Donkey Kong Country 4 and Tiny Toons Adventures 6 reprints from March 1999)

86 indicates it was manufactured in 1997
03 should be March
But what's with the 39? I thought maybe the 'C' could stand for calendar week, but the 39th week of 1997 was in September. Or is it 3 for March and 9 for 99? But then why would they stamp it with a 1997 date? Is it a revisional/reprint date? Or is the code meant to be read like this:


1993-1999 / Hummer Team's Mortal Kombat 3 predates My Heart Will Go On?...

Okay, this seems really weird, but I noticed how My Heart Will Go On was in Hummer's Mortal Kombat 3. Nothing special, right? Until you take into account that it was reviewed as early as March 1997 in the Great Dragon, while Celine wouldn't even record the song until two months later.

Question is, how did they know about this song when it wasn't even recorded yet? Fair enough, Titanic was a huge project that was probably being reported about in 96/early 97, but I just can't understand how they put the song in there. I thought it was perhaps added in the MK4 hack (which was probably released at the same time the real MK4 and Titanic came out) but MK3 also uses it.
