    Manual uploads

    It's just a few manuals for Astra machines, nothing too old or exciting but they might help someone None of the other FME sites have a manuals section so I was going to put them here.

    Manual uploads

    Hi all, I've got some manuals to upload but I don't have permissions. If a mod could let me in that would be great! Cheers, Steve

    Jumping Jacks

    Nice game there - is it the same as Jokers Wild? I remember a game that was a clone of Sevens Above, I think it was called Jumpin' Jokers, with red and blue jokers for the sevens. The one I remember was 5p a play, £3 jackpot. You got a lot of mixed joker 40p wins from holding two mixed jokers. Anyone remember it?

    Castle Big Fifty Repair

    So good to see a Big Fifty again. It's one of those games I thought I'd never see again, and it's gone to the right place! Nice one Tris

    PCP In for a Penny, In for a pound

    Great to see one of these again after so many years. They used to have a couple of them on the Grand Pier in Weston-super-Mare when I was a kid and you used to get a good game for your money which was nice because it was a 30 minute walk from my house to the pier. Lovely to see these old PCP's still going strong. Nice work Barrie

    All JPM Vogue Machines

    Great thread. There was a Box 13 as well if memory serves. Bright red cab, for the bingo sector. No pics, sorry. Another game called Twin Turbo as well, failed test I think. Did JPM ever do Powerspin in this cab? I seem to think they did?

    Making 3D EWN - can you help?

    Nice-looking project so far - I wish you the best of luck with it I used to love the Mk2's as a kid; really decent game-play and as you say, you never saw one on its own; they were always lined-up together in a row. Most of the Mk2's round my way had the 'newer' reel-bands, which had a cherry above the JPM on reel 1 and only one melon on reel 2. But there were definitely some with the older reel-bands; plum above JPM on reel 1 and loads of extra melons and grapes on reel 2. With the 'cherry' reel-bands you very rarely ever got more than 7 nudges, but on the 'plum' version you did see 8, 9 or 10 nudges from time to time. The Mk2's were superb games which seemed very fair. They got the balance just right. The Mk3's were absolutely dire by comparison - horrible cabinet, daft nudge music and far too many games with nudges, so much so that you nearly always got 1 less than the number you needed. The £2.40 jackpot didn't help either of course. Disgusting games really, although the later Crystal versions somehow managed to be even worse...

    Picked up a bargain Impact! ;)

    First game I saw in the vogue cab was some sort of Robin Hood-themed game on test in my local arcade. Didn't last very long. I think Indy was next, or maybe Big Banker or Money Talks. I can't think of any more Vogue games that started out as £6 token jackpots, apart from Roller Coaster. Would be fascinating to see a release schedule for this period. I didn't know that Indy was prototyped in the System5 cabinet, unless that's a Dutch version or something, but it doesn't look like it is. Fascinating to see
