How many of the machines should have been chipped were actually chipped? Is there any chance at a machine in an arcade being unchipped and emptyable if its been in there for years?

I imagine it’s highly likely a machine from years ago that had an emptier or manipulator has received a software update by now.

I can remember the Donkey Kong one, and all the machines I tried it on the trick didn't work, so yeah, they have all probably been re-chipped by now.

yes from what i could see they didnt have a method they just collected  what the machine gave but it was the way they manipulated the machine into mayve giving free credits or something along they lines.

My Star Wars ANH is still on v1.0 of the software so probably has the emptier still running on it. I've never been bothered enough to try it (at least not until I can get the rest of the family playing it mwuahaha)

V1.0 is most probably a later revision.  Barcrest usually start version numbers with v0.1.

We sure did ****0.1DTY Critical Mass`in the machine. Is not a good idea. To long to explain in short taking the programme to the end of ram. With no return causing havoc with addresses

I think I saw a Critical Mass IOU in a service station back in the day.  Was it a Red Gaming machine?

Red Gaming do produce Critical Mass; others might. There's a big yellow six way spinner at the top

Press collect. Tell me if the collect button keeps flashing or goes out while it's paying money.

Anyone with any sense would keep an emptier to themselves and not get greedy and it could last months, not brag or post it all over the internet  lol
