    Yet another test rig!

    So for ages I have been thinking about making some kind of universal test rig, but it was cutting out all the holes for the bulbs which put me off a bit, and of course the space that all takes up in a box! makes it quite big! Having the scorpion 4 rig and pressing it into use recently made me think, the LED arrays for the lamp test seem very good! no burning out of lamps etc, nice and compact! and the added advantage if one transistor on the board under test has gone short there is no difference in brightness on the led array where as with bulbs you very much risk the whole 33v or so across a 12v bulb and the blackening and blowing of the bulb! Not sure how long this is going to take, or if anyone is interested in this at all!, but here goes the start of the project... so the search started, I hit on these modules 8 x 8 64 leds in each! they arrived today! each are 60mm x 60mm so a good size! 4 of them makes the array I want to build so 120mm square and looks like this! 256 led's in a 16 x 16 matrix! perfect! (seems a good few boards are 16 x 16 lamp matrix) work started on the lamp load board, this will provide the lamp circuit on the board under test with a nice normal load so the sensing circuit on the board under test works as normal, and the drive for the led display, so far my circuit has bee traced out in diptrace with the hopes to make the pcb for this, it is still under heavy construction at the moment! more to come if anyone is interested!

    no this was years ago what I described happened!, sg gaming won't deal with public, just people that can prove they hold a licenced premises gaming licence

    They was mass produced back in the day, and I heard there was someone doing glasses for maygay M1 a good few years back, I think they was some kind of conversions kit, I can’t remember now, but maygay actively went after him and got him to stop with threats of copyright and fines etc, the person that told me this knew this as he knew someone from maygay and was going to ask about what was needed to be able to (licensing) and if maygay would go after people that produced new PCB’s for maygay machines, but he never did even ask for me! Just a long line of promises that never happened!!

    The mirror effect is not something anyone seems willing to produce these days, if you want something possibly vinal is the way to go and sacrifice the mirror effect

    Yet another test rig!

    Cheers rich! I do avoid getting things from places that customs can hit me for, been caught too many times now, but it shows even if you do try you can still get caught out, it’s only going to get worse when we leave the EU as customs is going to be rubbing there hands together as they can charge custom fees from products coming in from Europe to people like you and me!!

    Yet another test rig!

    Good job I am not planning to sell them lol!! I heard someone could get impact cpu cards done for £15 fully built! I said good luck to them as I can’t see that happening with the price of blank pcb’s!

    Yet another test rig!

    Yeah!!! So all in it works at a total of £171 for 20 pcb’s!! And these are smaller than even impact cpu cards, only a extra £1 per pcb and now the anger has resided I will pay dhl later ! A expense I did not bank on getting! It is more hassle to start again and claim money back from this transaction, just the hint of brexit is putting prices up so most likely what was cheaper pcb manufactures last week will cost more this week with the exchange rate! So roughly £8.55 each blank PCB! In life you will never win! The best you can hope for is to break even!!

    Yet another test rig!

    Well looks like I am not getting the boards now till I pay DHL for what looks like custom charges which I specifically asked the pcb maker to include a low value invoice ( which they sent me a picture of) but seem to have put the normal one in so costing yet more money!! If they had said they would not do the lower invoice I would not have used them! This is what increases the already fairly high price for each pcb as low quantity! Good luck to anyone that wants to produce fruit machine pcb’s!!!

    can be quite involved, if battery rot is the case you need to find someone that can repair it, I don't do repairs but this is my thread on one way of doing it https://www.fruitemu.co.uk/ib/index.php?/topic/20230-jpm-impact-repairs/

    Yet another test rig!

    Cheers Bob and Mike! the tracking says delivery this thursday! I got 5x lamp load boards pcb's made, 10x led display boards made as I am hoping these will also be able to be used for the led drives from the boards as well (like scorp 4 and MPU4) and 5x reel load board too which should put a much more realistic load on the reel drivers on the board under test and also means LED's can be used to display the reel state rather than lamps which will only put a small load on the drivers, more pics when they arrive!

    Scorpion 1

    Red should be on when you turn the machine on for 1 to 2 seconds then go out!

    Battery leaking has eaten tracks away on the board, so board needs repairing
  14. Andrew96_

    Scorpion 1

    Scorp1 just green, if the red is on or flashing then board is not booting, most likely bad tracks

    I cannot really be any more help as it was most likely 2015 or earlier I messed with it and remember it was a nightmare but that's all I remember now.

    Club Cops n Robbers pay tubes

    coin mechs work to law of there own, all I remember is some wont divert to the exit you want, and when they get a signal to divert it will be to the next exit like B to C, they wont go like B to D, best thing is to thoroughly read the manual on the diverting section, I had one machine once that had a wire that the MPU controlled to divert coins from one tube to another, but the way this was done was never actually listed in any mech manual! so the manufacturers had access to info that was never released to us meer mortals! just keep at it, usually what you think will work doesn't and when you change it it is completely different to what you thought would happen! been down this road with a miami dice putting a cashflow in place of a mars, in the end put a mars back in!
  17. new toy! IC leg straightener! pushes the legs of new chips which are splayed apart slightly into the correct width to fit in boards! works well!!

    Today arrived in the post post!

    got a RS one!!

    then you will have to work out and make up a completely different routing plug as cashflow and mars , although made by the same manufacturer are completely different in the routing department

    Fruit machines

    yup, Amusement with Prizes (AWP) now SWP (skill with prizes) like pinball and videos is ok! Skill with prizes (SWPs) These are NOT gaming machines. A skill with prize machine can be sited anywhere. You might see them in the foyer of a cinema, shopping centre or a social club for example. The difference between SWPs and gaming machines is that you must have a licence or permit for a gaming machine but for SWPs you don’t need one. How can you tell the difference between an SWP and a gaming machine? It depends on whether any of the games offered on the machine amount to ‘gaming’ as defined in section 6 of the Gambling Act 2005 (the Act). In the Act ‘gaming’ means playing a game of chance for a prize. Is the game played on the machine a game of chance? If just one game from a group of skill games is a game of chance then the machine as a whole is classed as a gaming machine.

    Fruit machines

    Video and pinballs are not AWP registered machines and are not gambeling machines

    JPM IMPACT CPU drawings - fan made!

    This is my method, If i put the mouse pointer over the track it will show me where it goes, alternatively if I click on a line on the right (like A8) It shows me where it goes! quite useful when you want to meter tracks from A to B

    Hi Newbie Here

    sounds more like open heart surgery than just turning a key!
