    High roller (barcrest mpu4) sound and light problem

    Hello Andy, Welcome here on the Mecca. I see you have this Dutch market machine for sale in the Netherlands. What is your purpose, do you want to fix it or do you want to sell it off? I suggest you make a donation first if you want advise for this machine. Also you write in your ad that it is in good condition, but a machine with a light and sound problem (and probable tens of years of neglect and a rotting battery) doesn't seem a machine in good condition to me...

    Impact JPM tips

    Do you mean those Andrew? This is the Promcard for the Dutch market. (NL = Netherlands) (Rubbish game by the way 😛 )
  6. I made a few for Bell-Fruit mid '80's (scorpion 1) machines. It is a lot of work, but when you are started and the first few looms are connected, it is easy. Tip: lable all wires and lampholders and check it twice! Also had one machine which had a fault in their own wiring diagram paper/booklet. (they had a double strobe/data number on 2 lampholders printed. With a little logic and a few tries with the machine in test mode those print errors are easily fixed. Happened me only once, don't want to scare you 😉 )

    Noisy Starpoint Reels?

    Yes the tape mate, it "flaps" and it makes because it is a bit loose a rattling noise when the reel(s) are spun. But biggest chance it is the wear and tear of the motor. But it is worth checking out, it is easy to recognize as the tape is a bit loose in some places to almost completely loose. I have had this a few times... ;-)

    Noisy Starpoint Reels?

    It is often wear and tear of the motor, but sometimes it is the tape which has become a bit loose, and when the reels are spun it generates noise because of it "flapping". I had that a few times, and solved it to place a few tiny pieces of clear tape on strategic places to make it tightened again.

    Replica JPM System 80 CPU cards

    Like Player says, this is an amazing achievement! Too bad sys80 is not among the tech's I collect... If so I would be a serious candidate to join a group order.

    JPM MPS1 LED 2 Bottom Right

    I don't know someone who would be able to do this, you could post a request on this forum. (If I'm correctly this person should be able to decrypt the software, adjust the values for the credits in the program with the right software editor, and encypt it again so it works in the machine) if it would be worth it is for everyone a personal question. For me it is important the machine works and functions as it did exactly at the time the machine was operated. Therefore I dislike credit-buttons, non-funcitoning refill/bookkeeping switches, coin-level switches bypassed and other sort of alterations. The one thing I do is I convert them to accept euro's as it is more convenient and more fun to also save some money over time. But I can totally understand it that it would be fun for you to have this machine altered to work proportional correct on euro's Regards, Rogier

    JPM MPS1 LED 2 Bottom Right

    Hi Jofrel, The software of the Top Shot is written for the old Guilder denomination: quarter / Fl. 0,25 = --> 1 credit guilder / Fl. 1,- --> 4 credits Knaak / Fl 2,50 --> 10 credits vijfje / Fl. 5,- --> 20 credits (machines from 1988 and newer, so not for the Top Shot) Your wish to have the credit intake and payout changed would involve having the gamesoftware (the cassette with eproms plugged in your MPS1 board in the machine) altered. This is not realistic to try to do or have it done, better forget this idea. What I always do is that I let Eurogaming program the coinmechs to the channels (kanalen in Nederlands) I want. So I have the € 1,- programmed on the channel for 4 credits, and € 2,- programmed on the channel for 10 credits. As you mostly play with the € 2,- coins this makes 1 credit = € 0,20 which is now more realistic. And if you payout 10 credits the machine pays out one € 2,- (that the € 1,- gives 4 credits and that doesn't fit the equality/proportion as with guilders I don't mind, it is for home use only)
