  1. Latest machine has landed, chuffed as anything with this one (thanks Drew) - few jobs to do but its in tidy original condition, will get the frames re-coated due to the usual corrosion around the corners (will try the chrome look powder coat which is apparently pretty good! we shall see - a first for me). MPU4 has original battery on board so we will see how that turns out, likely a job for Mick we shall see. Cab is pretty solid and tidy, overall a good find! So - if anyone sees (or has) a club double, solid silver & grandstand please let me know they are my 3 remaining wants to complete my early MPU4 club collection (thx) - I would also consider a crackpot for completeness. I cannot believe how quickly I have gathered such a mass of classics and just how addictive this is!!!! 😬

  2. All done, just waiting on the coin mech should be here today (thanks Ron) - I decided to leave on old 10p’s and 50’s (have loads!) but upgraded the £1’s. Tests out all ok with my spare mod 2 MPU4👍 Original MPU will go in once Mick does his magic (cheers Mick) 😊

  3. Machine was stripped down (photo), first job was knocking up a plinth with a lot of help from Russ (a carpenter friend of mine) and many thanks to duffy here on the forum for kindly sending me photos and measurements of his plinth (cheers!). Its the most substantial plinth I have seen on a machine yet! As soon as I collected the machine up I could tell it did not look right and was really low, almost unbalanced looking like it could topple over even - sitting play position maybe? who knows, but I aim to restore to the right play height and look 👍 More pics to follow as i progress....

  6. Picked up an old clubber pontoon last week, wasn’t cheap but looked a decent machine so I went for it (not so lucky as my last find, Multiplay, which was a classic and FOC, oh and on my doorstep not a 3hr drive away! lol). For those interested I’m giving it some TLC including making a new plinth and a powder coat (and the usual damm good clean!) I’ll also change to £150/20p (got the decal set). Good news so far MPU4 is ok as is PSU so it all works. Coin mech is with Ron already to do his magic (cheers Ron). Here it was as collected, will share pics as it progresses. Looking forward to playing this one, not one I came across in the wild although I did play Blackjack.

  7. Here we go all done and working perfectly, I present the "black edition" Pontoon club (apologies to purists lol - I normally am but in this case I think it suits black a treat) Quite pleased with the mirror paint effect behind the award panel, shame the artwork had gone but I think it looks ok Time to play her now for a bit 🙂

  8. I have no problem becoming a full member, donating, whatever is needed as mentioned, and have nothing against it not being passed around all Willy-Nilly. I'm trying to go through the proper channels, but I just seemed to be hitting an issue with a loop. As it states "you must go here and introduce yourself before being approved" but when I click on the link to go to that section, it brings me back and says I'm not a member yet and to follow the link (or continue as guest). I know admins shouldn't be bothered unless absolutely necessary, so if it was available somewhere else and I didn't need to bother them, that's the route I was going to take. I understand now, that is the only location to get it and I will take your advice and contact an admin. Thank you for the reply and the V20 info! I'll spend some more time reading up on the forums. I'm usually pretty good figuring out issues that come up on my own from my mame and virtual pinball experience but since this was an account related issue I felt a little lost. ***It looks like someone may have seen it (or it fixed it self) as the approval just went through while writing this. Thanks again for the help. pretty excited about all this. I'm pretty late to the game but better late than never.....

  12. Reassembly stage is always the best 👍 Cleaning all done, re-attached all the cable clips, dressed back nicely the cables bla bla bla The big reveal tomorrow of the “black edition” pontoon from April 1989, stay tuned lol My OCD is having difficulty with a beer stain I can’t reach on the top glass inner feature loop - without taking the whole mask off (too risky for the artwork) lucky for me I can’t see it unless I tip toe thanks to the new plinth! See pic 😂😂

  13. Been faffing with a bulb failure only to find the diode leg had fell out and would not stay put. I’ve pushed a small piece of solid strand cable in and it’s held the leg and all working 👍 easy when I put my specs on lol 😂 Amazingly only about 3 of the holders in this machine have broken clips and they appear to still be quite malleable.

  14. Don't miss out, you can still play them as Chloe has done some sys1 layouts and there are others done on DIF which are in the legacy section, if you need anything let me know.

  15. Not a bad idea that,I might build a revolving bookcase where you remove a book and it spins round to reveal adders and ladders and exchanges unlimited….like in the equalizer2

  16. Thanks 😊 I agree I’d much prefer the 10/100 but with this machine I’m not sure I’ll get one - I may put the roms in tho and enjoy that profile. Yeah @sulzernedtells me there was a £150 version, now that would be awesome! ! Are the £150 roms available I wonder, must look.

  17. I know ACE stuff is pretty scarce now but was lucky to pick this up last week. So far the 15v circuit on the PSU is fusing, suspecting a short circuit on the voltage regulator, and also the system one board is blowing the 5v supply. Would any one have a component list around the battery area, the cap sizes mainly. I need C35 as well, picked up C20 and C30 on another thread. I’m assuming ceramic disc would suffice. many thanks, can’t wait to post some video of play.

  18. Think it's one of the best brenco machines.ive had a couple reminds of butlins in the early 70s.i was about 6 and always wondered how it paid out from that display of 10p coins,I now know they were display to entice you to play.all 240 volt though,not for the faint hearted.

  19. Progress report - MPU4 seemed to be fine until I ran tests and the payout is not working (any tube) - most likely track damage but one for Mick to check for me 👍 Cab stripped, cleaned and ready for re-build once I have touched up a few parts, Cant wait to get this one working - pic of a rather bare club climber!

  20. Same sort of thing as yours with the staking but it has a gamble on it and it’s £150 jackpot.

  23. Stake Up, the king 😄 Not the dual stake version though but as far as dual stake’s go it was pointless you just get less loses before hitting x4. Ten/twenty however get 3 lines, perceived as better value

  24. You need to reinstall the Gamesoftware via the CF card slot. It needs a battery fitted to retain the software/setup when it's switched off.

  27. I'll just chip in here (no pun intended although it's not a bad one as it goes). This is for the older mod MPU3's (1&2) with the 74LS03 fitted so the RAM chips are 256Kx4. The later mods chips although the same physical size (18 pin) don't work in these boards as they are 1Kx4.

  28. Here's something special for the early may bank holiday to relive your youth (if old like me) or just to have a nice good old fashioned play High Rise by Barcrest is a game of Hi Lo, two of them. in fact i read somewhere it was the first machine to have dual Hi Lo reels within? This machine featured in Coronation Street where it sat in Gail's Cafe and her son Nick became Addicted to fruities, probs for only a week going by soapland storylines. still not found the Youtube footage of it yet? anyways enough Waffling now the credits First Thanks to @Reg for bringing up the machine in a recent topic which included the flyer (which i'll upload to this topic in a mo)asking for it to be re-emulated, I hope i've done it justice!! @CompostCORNER - classic layout, Image Dynamics for the Dx i used as a base including most of the reel symbols (jackpot homemade from image) @Slotto from the mecca for uploading the main image used in producing this gem and of course @Wizard for mfme's past n present i think the coin inputs are now correct as i've used mpu4 token from the drop down list as the standard 20 was for 20p's (change yours @Reg if needed) shortcuts are as standard but are listed within the £4.80 version. The Hi Lo's are as followed Red Hi = 4, Lo = 5, Green Hi = 6, Lo = 7 Plays in Mfme 20.1 not sure what rom version the £4.80 is i think its v3.1 do we have a earlier set?? Enjoy and Happy Gaming!!!!

  29. I've had this machine since 2005 - the party time player next to it had a cracked belly glass - so I went to vistaprint and got a self adhesive pvc window decal printed and appled it to a piece of glass. Dave.

  33. Those old £4 ACE machines were pretty good, quite a playable game too this one. Shame about the glasses they look pretty poor. They all seem to suffer from flaking paint around the button panels and coin bezels. I guess they either used a cheap powder coating or the metal wasn't cleaned up and primed properly beforehand.

  36. These are similar to what I use (very reliable). The High - Low just refers to the voltage drop or increase. You can actually buy 12v relays with jumpers to switch between high and low, which should make things easier for you to experiment with.

  37. They are both parallel hoppers. I believe they can be used on a MAME cab. Parallel hoppers are simple to use. On a compact hopper (the small one you have) you just make sure the opto is pulled high ("Coin count output" to stop it floating) then when you activate the motor you just check for 0v on the sensor (that gets pulled down each time a coin is despensed). Serial is a totally different ball game.

  39. Good evening, after my complete nightmare of a machine, I ordered a scorpion 5 board and all sorted, thank you all for the help, I’ve still got a few setup mesg’d on the screen when I switch on ( is that normal? ) but it’s awesome, thank you

  41. This might help, he goes through all the settings, you can at least check your sound volume is set right (assuming it's a Scorpion 5 board that is).

  48. Ooook.. I dxed this using photos from TTX.. now he said in one of his emails that the classic was wrong with some lamp numbers, Im not sure what he meant by this as he hasnt replied... but for now the DX works as closely as I can get it without seeing the real machine. I'm releasing this now on the premise that should TTX point out what this needs to make it completely correct I will then fix it and reupload it.. if you were happy with the classic then the DX is just a visual extension of that. So here it is, notes in post 2 as I have a pic.. Thanks to TTX and Moco, and the testers who did a damn fine job Oh, 2 versions.. both roms are in here with one layout and 2 gams, the TOK roms are Tristan's ones, the others are the normal.. Id change the shortcuts also as cancel is Z due to the USA ` not working in England. to do that load it into mfme2, change em then save it and reload into 3.2 Please note this layout is now completely different to the original release. Fixes include : Genuine reel symbols, genuine 7's on top matrix, correct lamp numbers and other fixes FIVELINERDXTTXandPANDY.zip
