big one 10, 22 or 47uf / 16v
(47uf typical in cartridge)
ps. polarized in your picture

little ones 10 - 100nf (typical 100nf / 50v)

not so tiny, so maybe 1208 or 0805 package size.

The exact values shouldn't be too important — you should go with Ichigo's suggestion of 100nF. They look like 1206 to me.

The fact that the large one is not installed in your cartridge may be intentional and it may not be needed.

You don't mention what the problem you are having with the cart actually is.

EDIT: damn, sorry @ichigo, crossed post, what are the chances so early in the morning xD

Values posted above are "real values" used in SMS or GG boards, not a joke. Any mix will be good.

But as you want exactly the "same" :
- 1x tantalum 10uf 16v 3216 (or 1208, same package size)
- 2x ceramic 100nf 1208

@will ; chances were very very thin lol ^^
