As blunt as the Question ................

No!

The link above will give a very good indication of what is Emulated and what isn't.

No need for that Ady, and I couldn't find any details for that machine on that website!

Clive (I'm assuming thats your name), do you have any idea of :

a) How old the machine is?
B) When did you last see one?
c) What kind of Jackpot amount and payout was it? [examples being recent 25 Cash, or the the 6 Token JPs]

While it currently is unemulated, it would be nice to have some details, so that it could be added to the database Ady linked to!

Yeah, but no need for you to take the same tone :p

Anyway, seeing as how it was a 1.50 machine from the same era as Rat Race, it's not as though he was asking for Party Time :)

That wasn't any kind of attack on you Ady, but you have to accept that not all newbs understand netiquette :)

Step n Skip, Skip n Stop or whatever it was called. No pic I'm affraid but it was indeed a 1.50 JP machine 2p play in the same cab as Pot Shot below.

The machine had like a row of simbols across the top of the reels that would like do a skill shot. Whatever symbol you lit, that would be transferred to one of the reels. Usually in a fashion that would give the player a win. The Step n Skip symbol was impossible to get likes if you had a Stop n Skip symbol on reels 1 and 3.

It was a great machine that I'd love to see recreated. Not sure if the up and coming MFME release would support this machine. And if it did, it would also depend on roms and resources emerging.

Heres hoping.....

STOP 'N' FLIP was a 10p version of the STEP'n'SKIP 2p machine, both out in 1986 on system 80 base cabinet. I too would love to see this machine again.

Step N skip was a 80p and one pound jackpot machine made by castle circa 80-81.

It was blueish purple and had a silly looking bellend with a skipping rope, and this was factored into the feature which stepped the reels and usually resulted in a JP.

It *should* be emulatable, but noone has seen one of these since the early 80s (hence the above is very mirky)

Sys 80 machines were *VERY* unreliable and the MPU's in them never lasted long.
There are very few we have roms for and even fewer that work fully in the emu.
Froghop's resources came from a machine that was broken, and I dont even know if they managed to get it working.

Sys 80 machines = rocking horse poo, a tad hard to find.

no, they where both BWB machines, there where three of each in the arcade i did work for in the late 80s.

It wasnt so much the processors or motherboards which where unreliable in system 80, it was the PSUs that caused problems. the large electrolytic caps used to leak and cause machines to reset, or noisy payout coils would cause them to reset, but this was alledgedly cured by the introduction of "double triac pacs" in 1983. But JPM stuff was always unrelaible, from sys75, sys80, MPS1, MPS2, System5 and Impact.

Castle and BWB where a joint venture in the 80s. both in the same, large white building in newark, nottingham. Castle built their own machines with the introduction of LED dot matrix displays, which ACE adopted later, and BWB just converted everyone elses machines, a bit like PCP.

i take a brick wall a gate and a fence to that wirralbret mps1,2 impact great for its time early sys systems were a bit poo with there psu probs but ace in the early 80`s were in the ladies room trying to be smart with there first use of using electronic coin mech which cost them

mps 1 and 2 machines never had any probs with these well ones that i had for that any way. a few in the old arcades were i use to work in token jams

Castle and BWB joint venture was like an early rebuild company which as we all know bwb still is but are trading as vivid as the front cover
some early vivid machines like reel a win yes mpu5 genesis 2000/1 cabnets had the old sticker on the back at the bottom of psu input bwb blar blar ...

as what i know of castle died 89/90 once everyone got stick of there rubbish yes ok there machines wernt to bad

any way back to the personal impact side of things yes ok the lights on the m/b r poo and slow frame rate on the psu :p is imapct 3 ok or the same problem pee u off as well lol ( fine close the metal lid on me and turn the wings and lock the door your not having a single coin out of me )

back to the main topic yes wirralbret i do think that you are right bwb or i think pcp gear very little memory on it one or the other

i know what you mean about ace and castle. Ace should have stayed in the 70s manufacturing machines with start handles on the front like bow ties - castle wernt bad, just all looked a bit tacky and BWB where a fab rebuild company, like PCP. Now we have cap rebuilders like union games - well known for there MPU4 tat paying out short and red gaming with all their reset problems and mux errors! i've been in this game too long fixing em - i need a happy escape!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Apparently it is a runner but is only in the early stages -I believe someone is working on this from the MPU MECCA.

It would be fantastic to see this as a classic or dx release.
