Purchasing Nucore

Hi,

Looking at the pinballlife website and it seems that Nucore is only available as a complete kit.. Is the base package no longer available..?

Wanting to get my second kit for a SWEP1 but if I have to but the complete kit + postage to Australia its just not worth while.


Thanks in advance.

Re: Which PB2k do you own?

I voted RFM, but would also like a project SWEP1..

Maybe I could put the Nucore system between the two machines and with a KVM / Parallel printer switch box, I could have the best of both worlds..!

Swith to A for RFM, switch to B for SWEP1..!


Perfect.

Re: Just ordered my Nucore kit..

Did the Audio MOD, works a treat powered from my Nucore PC power Supply... A little bit of a hum, easily drowned out by the great sound of RFM.

I saw an 'inline audio noise suppressor' mod somewhere on the forum, will investigate that and install.

Verdict; 10 out of 10


Next.. SWEP1.. ;)

Re: original working parts

Consider my very recent scenario.. Pin2k computer went on extended leave, it never came back (dead). I sold the CPU and mainboard (with issues stated) for $40 odd bucks I then sold the working Prism card and ROM board for $200. With Nucore + postage to Australia I've already recouped half of my 'bas...

Re: Playfield status with P2k PC Disconnected..

All good now, screen is 'righted' (p36 of the setup guide)

Brilliant, RFM lives..!


How simple was that..? Go to Whoa in total time, 2 ~ 3 hours..? And most of that was downloading the ROM's..!

Just got to resolve the mirrored screen image and it'll be sweet.

Prism Card tested ok in another rig Changed the CPU Change the power supply checked cooling issues etc All resulted in the same is...

Playfield status with P2k PC Disconnected..

Before I install the Nucore kit that I've just built, I have one immediate question. With the Pin2K computer removed totally, when I turn the machine on I should get play field lights etc..? From memory I should, but at the moment I'm getting nothing. Transformer hum but no lights. Anyone with an RF...

Re: Just ordered my Nucore kit..

Excellent, just received the base package today.. Sooner than expected to be honest.

Now the fun begins, and I'll discard the above CPU and get a higher spec one.
