  1. Hi guys its been a while since i have posted over here at MPU mecca .... its been a funny old year ... with C19 and loss of Wizard, some serious bad shit this year just to cap it off for me, i ended up testing positive 3 weeks ago, although im now on a full recovery it was not enjoyable, But on a positive side im hoping this will prevent me getting it again if my antibodies can break through the red wine in my bloodstream So firstly i would like to wish everyone a happy new year ( its got to be better than the last pile of poo ) anyway the reason for posting here was i was over at another forum that deals with vintage mechanical slot machines and some one posted a link to the George Wilson Arcade photo collection, i have never seen this before and found it fantastic ... so thought i would share it with you guys, if you have already seen it great, if you have not ... then you will love it here is a taster photo here is the Link to the collection https://www.seasphotography.org.uk/georgewilson Enjoy ... all the best ...

  2. Hi there, happy to be back. I was (eventually) the project manager for the SWP Product and that will certainly be mentioned in time, I am trying to be as historically correct as I can.

  3. Morning all, just to be clear, my recent rant about unlicensed AWP sellers was not aimed at Legacy & pre legacy machines ( like the stuff we all collect ) its aimed solely at people selling modern machines in big numbers without an operating license, theres loads of fruit machines for sale & wanted on Facebook & theres clearly people selling them commercially without the proper licence, i have to pay £5k per year for our Sell, Supply , Manufacture & repair license, these guys are just flouting the law, which makes it an uneven playing field in my eyes, we dont sell much in the lines of AWP other than PX`s we take that we just flip into licenced dealers we know, we have to hold a licence for Cranes, redemption machines & the likes of that as they are all classified as gambling, im about to approach the GC to see if they will listen about making legacy & machines before that Exempt from the Gambling laws, probably on a 20-25 year rolling age ( bit like classic car tax ), i will try this through a consultant to see if we can make any headway. cheers for now, Ian

  4. Can I just say again that these notes are taken from my perspective so I am bound to figure large in them. If this seems self indulgent or self promoting it's not meant to be so be honest, re-direct me if I drift off subject. The appeal of Development and creating new ideas and (truth is) actually being “recognised” for my abilities was beginning to appeal to me. It was here where I learnt how to create, wire and programme the analogue computer (for that was what it was) from the schematics prepared by Alan and Howard Parker. I never knew what a schematic was and the consideration that it bore no resemblance to the actual physical layout took a while to get my head around. As by way of explanation consider the London underground schematic is not geographical and gives no idea of the distance between two points! Constructing them as we did with a hole cutter, a plastic tray, a rivet gun, a soldering Iron and several rows of SAIA or Starpoint (more of them later) rotary switch timers, dozens of Omron relays and yards and yards of tri coloured wire. Bad Boys Race Our Young Girls But Violet Generally Wins Oh my lord where did that come from…. Black, Brown, Red, Orange, Yellow, Green Blue,Violet,Grey, White Isn’t memory a strange thing, I can forget anniversaries but that came from no where? Anyway, I digress (sounds Welsh?) Working for the first time with Alan and Howard and Ron (Watts) I learned how the machine was wired and constructed. I was also introduced into the world of ‘programming’ as indeed that was what it was, sequencing the operation of the timers and cams so that the various components operated in time during the game cycle. As a simple example the reel motor had to start momentarily before the reel stop solenoids were lifted or the reels would not start quickly and together. Oooh if I remember it was 10 degrees before, now where did that come from! All these little ‘sub routines’ would be recognised for what they were many years later with the introduction of the computer programme, perhaps it was around even then I don’t know. Furthermore I was also exposed to statistics, probability, chance, randomness and game structure and I eagerly started to read about them and found them fascinating. Although basic calculations could be worked out and a free running machine could be constructed to record the wins on meters without a player, believe it or not, the only way a machine was percentage tested was by sitting there with a black coffee (Nescafe) and a fag (Marlboro). Playing the machine over and over again and trying to get maximum return from the benefits offered via holds and features was second nature after a while, all the time recording on sheets of A4 paper the result of each game and what you had done to influence it with hold or hold after win etc. Example…. 6421 Gr | Gr | Or |.......|......|.......| 6422 Gr | Gr | Gr | H1 | H2 |.......| 20p | H 6423 Gr | Gr | Gr | H1 | H2 | H3 | 40p | HAW And so on. By the way I guess the payout amount is wrong but you get the idea hopefully, and the big number? That is the game number and until you got to around 5-6 thousand the results, apparently, were not very revealing unless they were really crazy by which time you knew there was something wrong with the design. With a 3 reel machine and 20 symbols per reel the full game cycle was 8000 games and until that number was achieved we sat there and played - and played. This was the boring bit but it helped that I had a colleague to share banter with and Charles Hazel or Bingham, was that man. One episode that was amusing was brought about while checking the percentage of a machine and realising that I had not recognised a 'Grape' win, or three grapes appearing in the win line. This was about 40p or some small amount and this appeared to be bringing the percentage payout down and certainly should have appeared more often than it had appeared to have done. I checked the spec and the glass and and there was the win symbol but looking at the third reel there were no grapes and the wiring had not accommodated the win either. It had been missed out of the design. I wont mention the guys name but he did go red from embarrassment! I mean 'what' are the chances eh? I found that I was really happy in the development arena. I began to notice that the later endeavours from the research area incorporated electronics, micro processors and plug in circuit boards some of which could be seen in the ‘extra secret’ development area. Plug in sub boards could be seen on a back plane and discrete components such as transistors and capacitors could also be recognised none of which I knew of at the time. So I decided it was time to get some serious studying done and I enrolled in Llandaff technical college for a course in Micro Processor Controllers and Electronic Circuitry and turned up in my Vauxhall viva HA ( to give a time reference). I was not alone as several of my colleagues decided that this was the way to go so we used to got to college and this was an excuse for another night out! Working with industrial research and development teams and being exposed to ‘cutting edge’ technology of it’s time meant that much of the stuff we were exposed to was ahead of the college’s mediocre supplies. I began taking orders and quite often delivered components, circuits and odd parts in to donate to the tutors which they were grateful for and helped me to become friendly with the tutors. All this was sanctioned by the company as it gave us an ‘in’ to the University. As an aside here it was during this period of development that we were working closely with Texas Instruments and as we were about to take a great deal of their products, particularly the TI 9980. This was to be the heart of the new system I was told. Anyway, one of their consultants came to work alongside us to help with the interface. The guys name was Peter Crow. I can remember some years later the hilarity caused as a receptionist in a hotel took down the names of myself and my colleagues. Martyn Stork, Frank Bird, Peter Crow and Ian Wingfield when we all booked into a hotel for the night. Cheeky girl laughed and her name was Abigail. Part of the development of the Electronic system for JPM was the adoption of a cutting edge drive for the reel unit, those spinning wheels that display the recognised symbols such as Oranges Grapes and Lemons etc. Again as an aside here, many people are unaware that the symbols or Icons of fruits, are actually supposed to be a hangover from the early days of coin operated machine in the US. Or at least this is what I have heard from many people both in this country and the states and it is the subject of much conjecture. Most people (well those not on this forum anyway) probably don't know where the term ‘fruit machine’ came from. The modern day ‘fruit machine’ is actually supposed to be a result of several American companies around at that time one of which was called Bell and they produced chewing gum, or so the story goes. They developed a machine along with the Mills company (again so the story goes) that dispensed the ‘Bell’ fruit flavoured chewing gum and sold them in early coin operated machines that used the reels as a gimmick. The game would play and the customer would get delivered a fruit flavoured gum! The ‘Bar’ symbol is again, supposed to be, a representation of a stick of chewing gum and the Bell symbol, well that goes without saying. Of course the typical bar owner would always have a little ‘book’ on the side and you could give the guy a dollar or two and bet him that you would win your stick of gum. If you did he would give you back a prize whose value was based on an arbitrary amount depending on the fruits that came up or perhaps the Bell or the Bar symbol would have been the top prize and gave perhaps 10 to 1 on your stake. Of course the odds were heavily in favour of the Bar (for Bar read Mob, of course). In any case enough of ancient history, the next step (sic) is into the future with the Stepper Reel unit!

  7. I've been working on a different project, but got side-tracked onto this - a friend said I should post over here, since it's for real fruit machines It's an early proof-of-concept of an auto-rom patcher, that means you wouldn't need a Chr chip any more, even for the 'scrambled' lamps, in at least some mpu4s (just done a Barcrest as a test). Here's a quick demo using MFME, you can see the characteriser is completely clear (zero'd out, just like when it is missing). This has been tested on real hardware - by another guy who is working on a cool project to potentially make replacement Chr chips (it's what inspired me to make this). So it adds the code that decodes the lamps direct;y into the rom itself, so the rom no longer talks to the chr chip, but instead does the decoding internally in 6809 code.

  8. these can be done in full mirror finish but the company that does it takes an age to do a prototype, this is why i took another route, they are not mirror like the originals but they are well acceptable, ive done a load of work on this glass stuff & sold one glass, ONE, did it for the love of it really & to prove if you try hard you can achieve anything. sold decent amount of the S80 Programme cards . oh & now you all know im a man of my word, might take a while but we get it done in the end ....

  12. Here is a old school 2p £2 jackpot machine by bwb called Fruit swop it`s dad is called Fruit King and mum is called Lucky Lady . This was created from images taken from you tube videos couldn`t find any decent pictures and hasn`t turned out to bad considering my photo shop skills are very basic. Thanks go to the following people @A:E for use of his Lucky lady Cabinet/Reel symbols. @Louie Bee for roms over at Mecca. @stevelancett for his you tube videos of this machine. @Big J for playtest. And last but the most important thank you of all goes to @Wizard for his creation R.I.P 1965-2020 sadly missed Fruit Swop.zip

  20. That's right, if this ROM is burnt and installed in a real Andy's Full House it would no longer need the Chr chip installed If there were a Chr chip left in there, it wouldn't cause problems, as the patched ROM now never gets to interact with it.

  21. Still a fair bit of work to do on all this, but here's a demo of doing a patch. MFME won't be needed (for real machine users who don't use emulators), as that dropdown list will grow as I build something to scrape in the 8x 'magic' numbers per game (used for the lamp mapping). So they select their MPU4 ROM file, select the name of the game from the list, then click 'Patch' button. I use MFME here to show what's going on with the Rom it is using, and then to show the patched ROM working with a completely zero'd Chr chip (same as when machine has no chip installed) at the end

  22. Well there's also another project going on over at DIF by user andrew96, where he's working on making replacement chr chips - so don't throw those old machines away! I am on another project, but I'd decided to knock up a quick initial version of this, that'll be super basic: - initially just MPU4 Barcrests - you'll need to find the 'MFME Layout', and look up the 8 numbers to manually type them into the patching program I'll get it vaguely working and sling it on Github so other programmers can take it further - as I'd imagine this could be expanded to cover MPU3, Bwb etc, though I'll be needing to get back to working on Arcade Simulator in my spare time (which is never enough!). WIP interface, having a bash at this today:

  25. .... and some more. On switch on the board would clock up 18 credits, in fact every time it was switched on another 18 credits? Sometimes just touching the coin inputs with the scope probe or the meter would clock up credits. This little head scratcher turned out to be the 12v supply feeding the coin mech. Transistor T95 had a broken leg and hence no 12v was delivered to the coin mech so the inputs were floating. This was caused by bad storage of the board and it's a real bug bear as I see so many faults similar to this with broken/crushed components, broken tracks due to a deep scratch etc etc. Still, all in a days work. Had a couple that were dead but looked like they should be running? Previous repairs had taken place with regards to the transistors in the reset circuit but what hadn't been checked was the resistors. It's always good to change all 8 resistors in the middle and the three, or even four, at the top. I always use the fingernail test, applying slight pressure to the side of the resistor. If they are really bad the wire comes away from the body. They usually have green legs but not always so don't be fooled! In this case one of the 10K's failed the fingernail test and another one fell apart on removal. You can do a manual reset to prove the rest of the board is OK just by momentarily shorting CPU (26) to ground. If it then boots you know the reset circuit is misbehaving. Another real head scratcher was the reels not spinning correctly (or at all). I use my Arduino to fake a reel set and I have LED's to indicate the motor drives. In this case there was no drive to the odd reel motor coils although the evens were OK? This was a PC 92 and the reels are driven, odds from IC1 and evens from IC2. There were no outputs on IC1 whereas IC2 looked fine? You'd obvioulsy go straight to IC1 and swap it out but then what do you do when the spare is exactly the same! After not too long (I surprised myself here) I thought I'd just check the signal paths and eventually got round to the DATA bus. All were showing a signal on the scope but D7 didn't look right. It looked like there was lots of information missing due to big gaps in the waveform. Checking D7 on the CPU showed what I expected to see so I'd sussed it there was a break somewhere. That was good news as it's faults like this that cause me to jump in the Thames! If you've ever tried to trace a track on these boards it's horrendous, and for the life of me I couldn't find where the connection was between all the PIO's and the main DATA bus back to all the other chips. To make some headway I just put a tack wire back to the CTC chip and BINGO all the motor drives were now working. Get that wine bottle open!!

  26. Was a bit nervous as is my first time with this so didn't want to screw it up uploading it, if I have made a mistake anywhere please let me know. Now on to the layout, by @bungle and myself. We were going to do the original cab but have done it this way as not only is it my first release but most importantly we are dedicating this to @Wizard as if it wasn't for him this wouldn't be happening. Looking forward to a few more of these and will be honest I nearly lost it trying to sort the bits and pieces out but Bungle was quite patient with me so massive thanks to him as did Pm @Reg around March last year and wanted to do a Xmas release for 2020 but things got in the way and I was a bit lazy, was intending to do a classic of something but someone talked me out of it. This is set at 20p play with a £4.80 Jackpot and I have a serious history with this machine which most of you already know, so finally the thanks, @bungle for his patience with me and great help in making this come alive. @slasher who has helped me understand the emulator a lot better when it comes to designing as he really started the ball rolling with me. @Reg for initially giving me the confidence last year (sorry for the delay) and finally Wizard who has made my dreams come true with this world, this is dedicated to you bud and done my own edition. Enjoy!! Jolly Joker Dx £4.80.zip

  27. Had another board in with odd symptoms. With the diags running it appeared to be trying to run tests that weren't selected or just alarming and re-setting? It wasn't always the same though? Anyway, when I managed to get it into a switch test I could see that switches 01, 06 and 07 were shown as on but would be intermittent. Hmm, seen something similar to this before and yep it was the same thing. SIL5 470R resistor network had a crack in it although you couldn't see it in situ. On removal it fell apart! Seen this about 3 times now, same component, same place? Not sure why it's always this one but it must be something to do with how it's inserted in the factory as it's not under any electrical stress at all.

  28. Evening guys, decided to create a new thread for this one to share my trials and tribulations along the way. Metalwork finally arrived today so starting the rebuild tomorrow. I know that Nick will probably slate me for it (being the purist that he is 😀) but I've had some of the internals coated too. I've gone away from powder coating as well (sorry again Nick) and had them Xylan coated. The journey of 1000 miles begins with a single footstep, here goes.

  29. I remember one particular school summer holidays when I was 14 or 15. If I was bored at home after lunch I used to walk 30 minutes along the seafront into town and play stuff like Crack the Nut and Copper Run in the arcades. There was one arcade that had two Spoofs, a Black Hole, a JPM Take 2 and a few other 2p games at the back and they were great games to play to pass the time. PCP Fruit Connexxion was another one I liked, with the 'Wild Reel' skill feature that could go for 50p. To make my money last a bit longer before the long walk home again I'd walk onto the pier and play video games like Bubble Bobble, Nemesis, Pac Land or Track n Field, which were exceptional value for money at 10p a credit. I'd also walk around looking for decent holds on the 20p machines - two pint glasses on BFM Around the Town, two clown faces on JPM Circus, and so on. If I managed to get a feature it was genuinely exciting because I never played these sorts of games normally, and even just collecting a couple of quid meant I could stay out a bit longer and buy some crisps and an ice-pop on the way home. Out of all the games I played as a kid, Crack the Nut was probably my favourite - they just got the gameplay spot-on. The gamble seemed really fair and so did the '!' random stop on the name, and the way you could 'jump' the gamble, the timings and sounds...everything was just perfect. Had that proper Barcrest 80's feel about it as well; 20p was shown as £0.2 on the alpha display, 'Best Saved Today' and so on. I know I should have been doing something better with my time but seaside arcades in the early-to-mid 90's were really intoxicating places to be during the summer. Pure entertainment.

  33. Picked this up as completely non-working. Following a message from MidiBob (absolute legend, thank you) I went back to basics. I checked the molex connector on the PSU and found that there was 0v where there should have been 12v. Swapped over to my spare and that gave me the required voltage. Plugged everything into the MOBO, switched on - nothing!! Checked for the 12v to the resistor, nothing!! Swapped over to my spare board (working last time it was in a machine), switched on - nothing!! Checked for the 12v to the resistor - nothing!! Rechecked molex connector and 12v where it should be. Checked at the input pin on the mobo - nothing!! Took off the power loom and checked for continuity, wafer connector pin 2 bad connection. Worked when I moved it to a certain position the went open circuit when I let go of it. Connected all up and wedged the pin 2 with a match, switched on and booted!! I'm going to have to play it properly this weekend as the original board was Rev 4 and my spare is Rev 7 so need to see what problems it will cause. Really happy to have saved it from being broken up, it will be joining the rest of the family this weekend and vid will follow once it's in place. Hyperdeal.MP4

  35. Well it’s finally happened after two years of searching for one and missing out 3 times ☹️ I finally got a fantastic offer from a very generous member Mike B 😁, who had had the machine for 5 years but had never got round to fixing it up the machine had never even been unwrapped from where it had been sent by courier as the silver sprint courier label dated 27/02/2016 was still attached to the shrink wrap that was undisturbed around the machine , so I was not going to miss out a fourth time and it was off to sunny Cornwall on Saturday morning it was a 600 mile round trip that took 11hrs in total but well worth it as this was the perfect 1st rebuild project for me , so after I had met Mike and his wife we loaded the machine up into the car I thanked Mike once again and I set off for home , once I got home straight away the shrink wrap was off to check the machine out I knew the cabinet has some damage as you could see in the photos Mike put up there was a few bits damaged but I hopefully have a donor cab lined up so that didn’t worry me ,as expected the cabinet was too far gone to be repaired as the chip board had got damp and swollen and cracked in a few places on the sides and the MDf base had seen better days like most machines of this age so it was time to start the strip down ,anyway that’s enough for tonight I will do another post tomorrow night with some more pictures of the strip down in progress ,thanks again Mike it was very nice to meet you and your wife and I hope I can do this machine proud and give it a new life thank you MPU Mecca and very kind members cheers dave 🍻

  37. This tech has been on hold since last year as a project for this year. As if I needed more work. An interesting tech, all built into a frame case with plug in circuit boards. With each new tech a tester has to be built otherwise it's almost impossible to check everything. This time I'm building a hybrid one to test Black Box as well so the old adage of killing two birds with one tester is apt. Anyway down to the nitty gritty. The main issue with these boards is the CPU card as corrosion is rife from the onboard battery. Luckily it doesn't spread to the rest, certainly not in the few examples I've seen so far. So starting with the board on the bench it looked like this... First thing is to strip off 'all' the old components. Sounds easy but it took nearly two days to get all the bits out as most of the solder had gone grey and crumbly. All the connector pins were green so they had to come off too. Fingers crossed the CPU is OK but you can see it has a sort of 'rainbow' effect on the top and in my experience that is usually caused by it overheating! Unfortunately with jobs like this some solder joints just won't let go of their component and what's left of the via and pad comes off with it. I wouldn't even attempt working on a board like this without my rivet kit! With new rivets in, a good clean up and application of solder mask it was time to put the new bits in. I had to add a small piece of copper to the battery track as it had eaten through on the top side. I made a deliberate mistake above. Don't worry I corrected it later. Nearly all done. Sort out a new set of chips barring the RAM and CPU. I'll keep my fingers crossed they work otherwise it's going to get expensive. The only bits I'm short of is the two mica caps that tune the crystal and the 7442 chip which I didn't have in stock. Hopefully they should arrive in a couple of days. Knowing what I know now I don't think I'll be taking on any more corroded CPU cards as this one has taken the best part of three days! Oh, I forgot I've got another one to do.

  39. well well well i have entered a journey for a jpm copperwin machine . a mecca member ,after winsprint reels were scanned in he cleaned up the images and sized them bang on to the originals. after many failed attempts trying to find a printer who could print the colour white on a transparent material , i found a company local who agreed to do me some reel bands on 220 micron transparent material, reverse printed , as they knew i was going to add a glitter layer . i want you all to learn from the mistakes ive made and hopefully together all the cockups will eventually end up with reel bands of various types being made . and then here are some youtube videos too . https://youtu.be/bo-6qxhkzUo https://youtu.be/l0ndfRFGdT4 onwards and upwards .... anyhelp or advice of what if anything i can do with my current bands ive made please let me know here are some pictures of the process

  40. The reel drive shaft is very rusted and will take some cleaning, The cut outs along the shaft are for locating the locking studs on the clutch collars. The reel motor as expected the grease in the gearbox is just in solid lumps but first inspection shows no damage to the drive shafts and cogs but even those have rust. Finally stripped to most of it's major component parts but plenty to do.
