Taito: Qix style hardware

Qix hardware has a lot of different processors and rams, making it a costly and painful boardset to repair. The ribbon cables between the components also can cause problems. The manual and self test are fairly helpful for debugging. It seem to me you want to get the large video RAM PCB to work first, then the Data/Sound, and then the EPROM boards last. Unfortunately, problems with just about any of the boards can prevent even successful debugging of the others.
