  3. Had another board in with odd symptoms. With the diags running it appeared to be trying to run tests that weren't selected or just alarming and re-setting? It wasn't always the same though? Anyway, when I managed to get it into a switch test I could see that switches 01, 06 and 07 were shown as on but would be intermittent. Hmm, seen something similar to this before and yep it was the same thing. SIL5 470R resistor network had a crack in it although you couldn't see it in situ. On removal it fell apart! Seen this about 3 times now, same component, same place? Not sure why it's always thi

  4. I remember one particular school summer holidays when I was 14 or 15. If I was bored at home after lunch I used to walk 30 minutes along the seafront into town and play stuff like Crack the Nut and Copper Run in the arcades. There was one arcade that had two Spoofs, a Black Hole, a JPM Take 2 and a few other 2p games at the back and they were great games to play to pass the time. PCP Fruit Connexxion was another one I liked, with the 'Wild Reel' skill feature that could go for 50p. To make my money last a bit longer before the long walk home again I'd walk onto the pier and play video

  6. well well well i have entered a journey for a jpm copperwin machine . a mecca member ,after winsprint reels were scanned in he cleaned up the images and sized them bang on to the originals. after many failed attempts trying to find a printer who could print the colour white on a transparent material , i found a company local who agreed to do me some reel bands on 220 micron transparent material, reverse printed , as they knew i was going to add a glitter layer . i want you all to learn from the mistakes ive made and hopefully together all the cockups

  7. Well it’s finally happened after two years of searching for one and missing out 3 times ☹️ I finally got a fantastic offer from a very generous member Mike B 😁, who had had the machine for 5 years but had never got round to fixing it up the machine had never even been unwrapped from where it had been sent by courier as the silver sprint courier label dated 27/02/2016 was still attached to the shrink wrap that was undisturbed around the machine , so I was not going to miss out a fourth time and it was off to sunny Cornwall on Saturday morning it was a 600 mile round trip that took 11hrs in t

  8. Was a bit nervous as is my first time with this so didn't want to screw it up uploading it, if I have made a mistake anywhere please let me know. Now on to the layout, by @bungle and myself. We were going to do the original cab but have done it this way as not only is it my first release but most importantly we are dedicating this to @Wizard as if it wasn't for him this wouldn't be happening. Looking forward to a few more of these and will be honest I nearly lost it trying to sort the bits and pieces out but Bungle was quite patient with me so massive thanks to him as did Pm @Reg ar

  11. Dave has kindly sent me a short video clip of my VFS Son of Kong which he picked up for me 2 weeks ago. It's currently at Reelfruits This will be with me very soon. Massive thanks to Dave for arranging everything and of course the hassle and cost of van hire and driving down to Dartford. Unfortunately Ian couldn't pick it up due to work commitments of the owners. Very excited about this one. VID-20210410-WA0002.mp4

  12. Grab a Horse and join me for a wild west adventure, but be careful of those pesky red indian's if they catch you its a long awaited hair cut for you, literally here's a classic jpm at a time when fruit machines were a joy to play with plenty of gameplay, this was originally made in 1995 maybe just before or after the famous indiana jones Big thanks goto- the original Jpemu layout and the original 1024 layout used for a majority of the lamping postions to @infection for obtaining the two images used from a youtuber - fruityloopy 1980, not sure if he's a member on here or no

  13. Hi chaps, Here's a bit of a blinder, a really good nick LSI chassis. Rarer than hens teeth! Now you maybe thinking where's the RAM, where does the ROM cart go and where's all the support chips? It must all be done with the ZNA129 chip. I can't find any information on this one and even the stuff that RIche has posted doesn't have a schematic which is a shame. You have assume that it would only ever play the one game without re-soldering the chip as it must be programmed at the factory. I'm sure the smarter folks out there will correct me if that's not the c

  14. A bit of a shaggy dog story now, bear with me though as it's a goody. I've been looking at a couple of MPU2 carts which have suffered battery rot. They have the mask ROM on them which is either a SL32000 or a SCM39199P. The next one had started eating away the ROMs and a leg fell off! So you can see both versions of the two chips, one's a Farranti and the other a Motorola device. These are both custom specials probably with the same code burnt in but I can't be sure on that? Anyway, yesterday I was frantically searching for some ROMs that I thought I'd mislaid i

  16. maybe unrelated but i spoke to a op in leeds about stanmarsh's fruit deuce many years ago and he said he knew the guys from farentti and would / could get the schematics for me let me contact him again, might be too late and comes to nothing but doesnt hurt asking

  19. Right, Rich I'm messaging you the originals in Photoshop and PNG format. The printers will probably want the PNG unless they can open photoshop ones...... If you want to share the art once you've tested to see if they fit with glitter on the back that's your call your spending the money printing them, im happy to give you some time to sort them you've helped me with plenty of free parts in the past. Will await your updates on here, hope this time you can get it spot on At worst now you will need a tiny bit of padding behind the reels not the other way round which isn't fixable. Look

  22. This next one gave me the run around. This one didn't look too bad but looks can be deceptive. In fact the rusty nuts on the 64 way cart socket should have had me running for the hills! On the first power up it booted OK but the Alpha was corrupted. Normally with the diags running you get bleep shortly after this before the main tests start running. In this case there was no bleep and nothing else happened. Concentrating on the alpha one of the links was broken between R111 and the socket PL7. There was no track damage under the battery which is the usual culprit. On

  31. You see it all the time now especially on Fb... People willing to throw loads of cash at machines to relive their youth.... then its boredom with it after a couple of days or it goes wrong and the value is less than half of what they paid when they try and move it on. Seen it all happen in classic cars...and with F1se bikes... once the dealers are involved its normally game over buying stuff for geniune collectors. Hopefully prices will comeback to a sensible level... £2500 for a Line Up on Fb last week.. fully workshopped it said.. it was covered in a wet look back to black sheen... It had a

  32. A fruity will only ever be worth as much as someone is prepared to pay. Whilst people are willing to pay silly money then the value will stay high. Remove the demand aspect and they’ll drop. I’d rather shit in my hand and clap than pay £2k for a machine. I’ve got some cracking EM’s in my collection but I’ve never spent more than £200 on one. That said, I’m learning to fly and that’s £200 per hour. I’ll skip 6 or 7 lessons and buy an EWS 😄

  34. The good thing is with a genuine collector getting it like yourself, after its all up and running you won't be trying to punt it out for £2.5k, it will sit within your collection. You getting this over dealers who are screwing this game all together is a victory for the true enthusiasts & collectors...😎😎

Roll Up, Roll Up, take a seat and go for a ride in this fun filled roller coaster of a slot from project coin (cir1996), have the thrill of your life on the big wheel or the dodgems, make a splash on the log flume or join the show in the Big Top. Collect golden tickets to hit the jackpot!!! Thanks goto @BL4K For giving images of his machine to @infection including the reel symbols and especially the orange balloon, not sure what the hidden feature symbol is on the 2nd reel so made it a big top tent. Also thanks goto @hitthesix for the original classic i made my classic and

  36. That Son of Kong does not work. The lamps come on but it doesn't boot. I am getting this as I have a spare working board for it. It comes without keys as they cannot be found. It's on all old coins too. Came straight out of an arcade in 1985 he says and has been in his aunts house ever since. So I suspect major battery damage tbf. It looks tidy judging by all the photos he sent me.

  37. Depending on condition obviously, but £800-£900 would be about right I'd reckon. They're not massively desirable like some of the other MPU3 machines (I was never really a fan of it myself) I wouldn't get carried away with the price of what Jimmy is selling, pay whatever you're comfortable with but let the seller know the difference in condition, fully "serviced" and delivery costs.

  41. Its the reel index solenoids and their associated parts. Remove the solenoids and clean the plungers and the coil inserts. do not use any lubricant when fitting back as that will make them stick. There is a small hole in the top of each solenoid, Make sure that is not blocked as must be kept clear. Check the solenoid springs are not broken and have enough to push the solenoid plunger down when released. they tend to get squashed over time.. finally remove the lift arms, there is only a spring clip holding them on, clean the brass bush and the shaft it fits on, you can use s

  47. Hi all, I have a BellFruit board approx 140mm x 100mm , 31-489-002 ISS1 across the top , LCT9312 written in top left corner. It has a chip on it marked Round Town. It appears in good order and will post free to anyone that it would be of use to. Just a waste if thrown away. Let me know Andy.
