Developer Messages

Hidden inside the ROM are two different messages. The first and less egregious of these is in the Toshiba TMP90840 memory at 0x4000:

Space Battle Ship "GOMORRAH"(TM). 
Copyright(C)1990 UPL COMPANY LIMITED.
Under the copyright laws,this The hardware or The software 
may not be copied,in whole or part.
Understand?? Music & Effect by Yoshio Nagashima

The second and more egregious starts with this tidbit near the beginning of the 68k memory at 0x40:

STOP ANALIZEING THIS SOFTWARE !!

Followed by this message at 0xC0:

Original

 may not be copied,in whole or part. 
 Understand?? Programmed by Itsam Matarca. Message(JAPANESE SHIFT JIS): 
 おい、そこのヒマな、コピー屋のあならいずヤローみてんぢゃねぇよ!
 コピー基板作っている奴、本当に頭にくるんだよな。特に韓国、台湾、香港、
 おめーだよ日本人ぶってこんなメッセージ読みやがって、
 まぁいいや、このNMK製はクソだから。
 ちなみにSNKのねおぢおもクソ基板だ(らしい)。

 Hey, I'm looking at you copiers with so much free time to analyze this!
 You bastards making copied boards really get on my nerves.
 Especially you wannabe Japanese from South Korea, Taiwan, Hong Kong
 who have the gall to even read this message.

 Well anyway, this NMK board is SHIT.
 By the way, SNK's Neo Geo also is (or seems to be) a SHIT motherboard.
