At the moment,The only early adverts with pic I can find are from 1974 showing Gemini and Kaleidoscope However I have found advertisements in 1976 with a number of listed used Barcrest's. King 40

Yes, that was the Ace Coin 100 Series.

May 1985.

I have some global stealth tech so i can add a little. It's usually found in the millennium mark 1&2 cabinets... I've seen dated from as late as 1999. (Looks more like 94 era)

It's fairly reliable, much the same as configuration as JPM impact... battery damage on the game card eventually kills it, but it can take slightly more damage than an impact cpu card as the battery is better located. The tech is a comparable level to Scorpion 2. It was popular on Globals club machines which are fairly 'player unfriendly' low frequency jackpot machines.

The version I have has a scorpion 4 type power supply that maybe an Diy replacement.

In terms of timeline it seems Global switched to Epoch/elegance cab after this short Era.

This revision was a bit more subtle than I expected (I'd assumed it was nearly 100% SMT), so now I don't know if I've ever seen one or not ;)

It’s possible there has been another revision, this one is dated September 2003

My dates could be a bit off, but mpu2 definitely goes back to 78 at the latest overseas, they seemed to use MPU1 and electro mechanic at the same time. MPU1/0 I honestly have no idea how old they are
