Well,today I took a rail trip out to Worcester to see our friend on here Rob T who kindly invited me to play on his collection.

And for the first time in 40 years,I got to play on this absolute beast of a machine.

 

Whilst enjoying Robs collection,I felt that what we all do here to try and preserve the Golden days of playing and remembering the memories each machine holds to us enthusiast,that what we do is not just for our own pleasure but for everyone else that shares our enthusiasm.

Not just for doing them up or playing them,even repairing them when things go wrong. I come to the conclusion that it's always worth it.

Thanks Massive to Rob T,I had a fantastic day.

The hospitality was great,the machines was great.

I love what we all do😊

Hope you enjoy the video.

Thanks for watching as always

Cheers Chris was as always a pleasure catching up, thanks for popping down matey.  So chuffed you had a good day (even though some machines were being buggers).  Thanks for the offer up to yours, that'll be brilliant heading up to you again soon that's for definite! 

Really happy to see you playing on Rock On again after such a long time that's for sure, I was around the corner (trying to fix another machine) but smiling away to myself hearing you talking away for the video, was brilliant to hear and see 🙂👍

We enthusiast's do love our machines thats for sure, although have to say this week I was very tempted stop, so many headaches all at once 🙈 then the spare boards all not working too 🙈 then yesterday Rocky Horror suddenly going 🙈😔 Think I'll leave it a week before having another go 🙂👍

Thanks again Chris, next time you're down will show Worcester and the great guys at Retroids arcade too.

Sorry mecca members I've not been much on here recently, lots going on.  But do dive on when I can to see some new threads and restoration updates 🙂

Cheers Chris 🙂

Hi Everyone 

It has come to my attention that YouTube has started putting

Advertising on my YouTube videos against my wishes.

I have never intended for this to happen and made a promise

to everyone I would never monetize or have annoying adverts

on my channel.

So I have decided to call it a day with YouTube.

This should explain everything!

Thanks to Everyone on here who has ever tuned in

Never really been one to watch the YouTube channels, but I do know that your channel, along with @stevelancett are very popular among the community.

Shame to see that you've closed this down, I'm sure it will be sorely missed.

Have you actually received payments from YouTube for your channel? I know some people make an absolute fortune from them (but probably not fruity nuts like us! :) )

I ain't closing it down Grah,I will keep it open

So people can still watch but won't be uploading anymore.

I made a promise that I would never monetize my channel

hence you would never see adverts in my videos.

They are truly annoying tbh and I didn't ask for them to

be put there.

Iam not interested in making money as I love our hobby.

But I don't expect other companies to profit on what I basically 

do for free for everyone's enjoyment.

I made a promise and I always keep to my word. That's me!

After some consideration,mostly to everyone

that is subscribed to me on yourube,I have decided I

will continue to upload onto YT,but will be taking a

more relaxed approach since I have my own Facebook 

group too which will always feature more content.

A lot of people commented about the adverts,now being the norm unfortunately and as annoying as they are to me it seemed,most were not that bothered!

Anyway,thought I'd share this video.

It's Maygay Wild Hold being very happy lol.

Hope you enjoy watching. 

Thanks to everyone here for your continued support.

Coming soon to a chris217 channel near you lol.

Noughts & Crosses mpu3. On 10p play/£3 jackpot.

Comes with a load of coins and tokens too.

This will be my 3rd VFS machine in my collection.

The other 2 are Wheel of Fortune mpu3 and Son of Kong Triple M.

The SOK arrives tomorrow.

I will post a separate thread for that one.

Yesterday,I thought I'd put my head in the back of my faulty machines to see if I can break them some more😂😂😂

 

First up was Bouncer. Troublesome system 80 tech .

It wasn't booting,with only 2 LEDs lighting up on the cpu board.

Did a bit of swapping around.

First the ram chips with no success.

Then the cpu chip,still with no success.

Then with both lots from my Nudge Shuffle.

Unfortunately still no success.

So,it's beating me atm as I'm not sure what else to look for.

The in out board works fine and tested in NS.

 

On a happier note,I delved into my VFS Noughts n Crosses. 

Finally managing to get that mpu3 board out.

Gawd I struggled having arthritis in my fingers and all.

Anyway,on inspection,it had the dreaded blue battery on.

Although it looked fairly clean,it has caused some damage to nearby ICs and some tracks.

 

My spares department looked pretty grim with 2 boards,both with faults.

One board had a faulty ram,so it was that one I decided to swap bits around.

Took the ram off the N&C board and put it onto the donor board. Plugged it all in switched it on and success 🤗

It booted up fine. The reel stick fault was no longer apparent and she now plays and pays as she should.

 

Here's a video of the jackpot happy machine in laction

They are a nightmare without arthritis Chris so I can sympathise totally. You have an enviable collection.

Just watched some of your videos. I love the sound when they payout. Brings back memories from when I was a kid in the amusements 

Totally agree, hopers are rubbish the solenoid payout was king 👍 that satisfying THUD THUD THUD 😉 can you imagine (or remember in my case) the £200 jackpot in clubs when those paid out 😂

Sys80's are notorious for the ribbon connections failing. Sometimes the only solid fix is to use new cables and swap out the 26 way connector on the CPU board.

Thanks Bob

Worth checking out.🤗
