WTB: SWEP1 ROMs

Does anyone have a spare set of Star Wars ROMs they could sell? I'm trying to sell my field and have a buyer but need the ROMs to finish the sale.

Found a set finally!

Thanks,
-Karl

Re: Moving back to CRT

I don't have any good videos from when I had the LCD in my machine, but I do have these two photos which show the outline/black level from the LCD:

Issues during league meeting

I hosted the Orange County Pinball League on Sunday, and had two issues reported to me. I had Star Wars in my machine for the meeting, running version 2.0. 1) The game completely locked up. I witnessed the lockup and had to turn on/off the machine to get it running again. None of the buttons would r...

Re: Moving back to CRT

I think I updated this elsewhere on the site, but I did eventually try the G2210 as well. The black levels were better, but still not close to where I wanted them.

Breakout?

I was reading the pinballnews.com report on Pinball Expo where one photo caught my eye of a Breakout style game being played on a Nucore machine. Is there any chance of sharing how to access the game?

Re: Original monitor woes

Yes, the failure was fixed by those items as well as C807 (100uf 16v) which was in the cap kit, although I can't verify this since I replaced all of the components at the same time. The cap kit is what I assume took care of the alignment issue.

Re: Original monitor woes

Basically there's not much too it if you're familiar with replacing components on a circuit board. To discharge the monitor, I first watched the videos linked over at a thread on Arcadecontrols.com and followed the directions shown there. I didn't run into any surprises with my monitor. Looking back...

Re: Original monitor woes

Sorry about the lack of info. I've been working on my other pin projects since the Pin2k is finally finished. Everything went fine after replacing the components recommended by Ken Layton. I'd think I'm in the minority of preferring the CRT over the LCDs, but I'm very happy to have it up and running...

Re: Bill Ung UFO kit

Bill is quick! He suggested checking the flashbulb under the red arrow beneath the jump ramp, as LED #3 is dependent upon that bulb. Swapped it out and everything works as it should.

Bill Ung UFO kit

I just finished shopping out my RFM, which also involved installing Bill Ung's UFO light kit. There is a problem, but I don't know if it lies with the kit or with Nucore so I'm posting here and emailing Bill for advise. Does anyone else have the kit installed in their Nucore system? The issue mine h...
