It'll definitely a 131, the 130 doesn't support the 060.

Looking at the solder joints isn't a very effective method either. A cap can be bad, but not have leaked.

There's only one proper way to test a capacitor, and that's with an ESR meter.

In my opinion, the gadgets are useless and shouldn't be there. I'd rather use "less". Whether the Amiga even has a port of that, I don't know.

I'm sorry but it just has to be Turrican 2. All that graphics, leveldata, and music on 1 disk is still to this day a miracle. Even if the game took 4 disks it would be acceptable.
