My Clunky Old PC Is Giving Me Issues....

I'm still rocking the old hardware (non-nucore) in my RFM and I went to turn it on today and didn't get that normal *BONG*. Ran the hardware tests and I'm getting this: DCS: DSP failed to reset DCS: SRAM Test Failed Suggestions? Did my PRISM Card start biting the dust? Can I replace components on sa...

Pin2K Trade-In?

Have you considered offering a trade-in for NuCore where I send you my working PC box and I get a NuCore system for a cheaper cost?

Re: Stoke Of Luck Lost It's Luck?

That would be the change! I recently bought an Ethernet card for my Pin2K and was messing with it. Thanks!

Stoke Of Luck Lost It's Luck?

My RFM has for all of the last approximately 50 plays always awarded 1,000,000 points. It almost seems that the randomness is gone. Any suggestions as to what would cause this? I'm running 1.5, which I did recently update to, might be connected but not sure. Any enlightenment?

Re: My two pinball equipped NuCore in a European tournament

Nice artwork on the speaker grill. How'd you do that? Vinyl lettering?

Re: A most interesting bit of news.

That's cool, I understand the need for a good long vacation after such a strenuous project. I hope you enjoy vacation, but don't enjoy it too much or you may never come back :twisted: .... I don't even currently own a NuCore system to even be able to buy a WB kit of any sort, this stuff just interes...

Re: A most interesting bit of news.

Any updates for us Chuck? At least let us know that you aren't commenting or something if you would. Knowing that you "won't comment" is better than leaving me hanging. I'm sure it's a blast for you to be working on this but it's killing me not knowing anything!

Thanks as always for your hard work!

Re: Playfield status with P2k PC Disconnected..

None of the lights will light up if there is no PC hooked up. The power driver board has a watchdog in it that shuts off the playfield because there is no communication to pc. Again, completely normal for the playfield not to do anything.

Re: Just ordered my Nucore kit..

Did your old computer die or are you just replacing it to get the extra bonuses of having a NuCore system?

Re: A most interesting bit of news.

Well, I finally got the poor man's expo info (pinballnews.com). Wizard Blocks was being pushed ahead, Planetary Pinball seems to have thrown a wrench in the process just because details aren't secured. It isn't Planetary Pinballs fault but the project is on hold right now. Chuck suspects that the pl...

Re: A most interesting bit of news.

The major part of artwork that I heard was missing at the time was playfield art. Then this came around: http://ipdb.org/showpic.pl?id=4489&picno=38641 I saw that in person at pinball expo last year, full sized and all. Artwork issues could possibly tie this more to Planetary Pinball Supply since th...

My Predictions: - Gene has signed a deal with Chuck and Don to put out Wizard Blocks - Someone (perhaps Chuck and Don) have finish...

Re: A most interesting bit of news.

Chuck, I can't make it to the Expo this year, you gonna be able to get a recording of your presentation for the rest of us? I was there last year and saw your presentation, love hearing about these kind of projects and talking to you guys in person but things just are permitting this year.

Re: A most interesting bit of news.

I talked to someone on Oct. 2 who had claimed that apparently Chuck and Don has signed a deal with illinois Pinball regarding the production of both Wizard Blocks and Playboy, obviously running NuCore. No clue how accurate that it was but I figured I'd pass on the news.
