Sorry for self reply, but there is a low-cost way to decap the chips without necessarily being able to extract the data (i.e. from a very fried raiden II board) by incinerating the epoxy from the chips on a stove or with a blowtorch. This plus a hobby microscope could reveal if any of the chips are worthwhile for 'proper' decapping.

So... does anyone have a dead raiden 2 board they can part with?
