He doesn't specifically state that there is original bios code in his bios. Rather, he says that the original bios is copyright SNK. That is not explicitly related to the content of his bios. He needs to specifically state if any original code is in there or not. My guess would be no, but its just a guess.

Thats why it says New program code within Which means his code is in the Original bios.

Finally got around to talking to Razoola today. He pointed me to this page (which I overlooked :D)

The UNIVERSE BIOS is a patched version of the original SNK BIOS. Most code is the same as the original BIOS with the new code being worked into it.
