    Yes mps1 is protected 100% and I dint think anyone has bothered to crack it either

    Well I made my own fuse map when I made the system 80 boards so jpm could not say I had copied there chip and infringed their copyrights! So my chip works perfectly but has a different fuse map to jpm!

    I must admit I had assumed that too so was quite surprised. I didn't find that though with the MPS1 PAL, that was definitely protected. I'm still mystified in that case why the two files are different as you'd expect them to be identical?

    yeah I think your right as I have just looked too, just have to make one up from 10 x 4.7k discrete resistors, I have done that when needs must!

    Already looked and RS, Mouser too. A bit of a rare beast methinks?

    the originals are not even protected, beats me why everyone doesn't even try and read one first and presumes they are protected.

    Farnells do the 9 pin ones as I get them for impact boards 4.2k so they likely will do the 11 pin ones too

    Nope, afraid not. Sorry for getting your hopes up and well spotted Mavroz. Can you see who the manufacturer is as I can't find any 11 pin ones?

    Well Friday night after a few to many vodkas I got a message from a friend offering me this said it was in good condition and fully working so I thought why not so it arrived Saturday looked ok few scratches opened the back that's were the looks ok ended 😩 To start the tubes ( see photos ) only the token tube and 20p tube were present strange gets worse the £1 and 10p pay out units were missing as you can see white pipes in there place very crude but the pipe where the 10p tube should be it put the coins straight into the pay tray and when you collected you only got 20ps the pounds counted down but as no payout unit there nothing could pay out really why do you do that but that's not it upon switching it on it was dead except the token solinoid half pulsed but no light on the mpu so it wasn't a working machine then so I removed the mpu and yep a very rotten battery removed it but the board was damaged not really anywhere to re fit a new battery as the solider points were rotted away so I thought well this won't work again but gave the mpu a good clean with electrical cleaner put it back in the machine and just plugged the power supply into and by some miracle it lit up so I replaced the rest of the plugs and one fuse in the power supply and you can see the end result it worked took 4 hours to re wire and rebuild the pay outs and some other cosmetic work and that's the end result it only has one problem the token mech switches are dead takes tokens no credit and a tube sensor plugged in causes an alarm it's gonna be that mpu I'm lucky it worked at all so for the time being I've got it paying out 20ps instead of tokens for now until I sort an mpu and the coin mech just needs reprogramming just thought I would share was an interesting little project and a warning don't drink and buy lol 😩

    Doh!! I must get a new pair of specs! I'll have a look to see if I have any 11 pin ones, not so common so I doubt it.

    Nice one Bob thats good to know .and also that is not a taboo chip anymore .

    The resistor array in the top picture is 11 pin, the ones in the last picture are only 9 pin arrays.

    Some information about Fruitman. It appears the company that imported the machines still exists today. https://www.jvhgaming.com/en/page/about-jvh/facts-figures.html

    How many do you need? I can get some 'pulls' not sure how many though?

    OK, so I've burnt my first PAL chip, plugged it in, and what do you know it works! Loading the file into my Data I/O had me head scratching for a good while but I worked it out in the end, no thanks to the documentation! It did however come back with a checksum error but I burnt it anyway and from what I can tell on the test rig it appears to run OK. Flushed with success I thought I'd just see if I could read the original chip and blow me it wasn't protected?? The file off the chip is slightly different in the fuse map so I don't know why that should be. This is all new to me so it's a bit of a steep learning curve. Anyway, here's the file. I've added the ETX and STX characters to the beginning and end of the file so that may upset the checksum? Read from IC10.jed

    That's why many operators turned them into working models.to earn money instead of stood idle.most working models you see will be in the square dark wood cabinets that were cranes and that's why there are not many left.

    Here is the dx version of the classic i did for this, Quality old skool fun from maygay As you can see the layout isn't the best quality this is due to the flyer/image used. even though infection Upscaled the flyer due to the poorness of it, it still came out crap but i wanted to dx it so here it is thanks goto infection for the image retrofruit for reel symbols used Amot for the roms used originally the layout itself due to quality isn't locked and hopefully one day it maybe improved on play it in mfme v20.1 Enjoy and Happy Gaming!!!
