Only ever played one of these in the bowling alley bar Finsbury Park. I don't think there will be a problem with the screen as it fits like Screen Play not Special FX. It would take a genius and a set of roms to get this moving, plenty around though😉

What a dodgy little dive that place is.

Wasn't back then, although I bet they use to get upset when there was no money in the overflow except for non tubed coins😉Was there a good few months though iirc.

I am sorry to report that it looks like this will ultimately be a non-runner. This is a machine I had discussed with Wizard before as a possibility to do but unfortunately there are some issues that needed to be fixed.

The video is out of sync in some way, everything is green with small black bars. There are no configurable options in MFME M1V to adjust the video output. This is probably something that we could have lived with but the emulator crashes during some of the video sequences (either freezes or gives a Windows crash message).

I have seen the same sync issue in real life in a Caesar's Palace that was built into an original Screenplay cabinet. I have no way to confirm but it looks like the screens used were either different between the two machines or calibrated differently. This behaviour has now ultimately presented itself in the emulator also. As Screenplay was the only M1V machine emulated thus far unless another machine turns up in the same configuration it looks like a no go.

I had been working recently on a base layout for Wizard so he could test and fix the issues. Of course with the devastating news that Wizard has now passed over there will be no further fixes to MFME and Caesar's Palace will therefore never be functional.

I wish I had better news to give you 😢

I know Wizard was trying to figure out Special Fx too for us and gave it his best shot, bet he would of figured it out eventually as always liked a good challenge, nothing surprised me with him, he obviously use to fiddle with his emulators like an expert violinist, just kept giving and giving so that we can have fun, need I say more.

Thank you for giving it a good bash mate, runner or not appreciate the effort and we will live in hope that one day it will run😊

Care to explain? Never managed to get this passed the "Maygay block"!

 

You could if you flicked the bastard, did one in a bowling alley in the bar at Finsbury park, held on the JP after resetting.
