Here we have Hokey Cokey a lovely little Multilayer from Astra Games.  I’ve been waiting to do this for quite some time as you'll know if you've seen the WIP thread.  Not sure why I like this so much, maybe it brings back some nice memories, like winning more on it than Tony aka Compost Corner when we met up one day lol (where is he nowadays?).

I've been having some issues trying to get the game to save with the Top Box and slaves in the correct positions.  Wizard had a look and offered a fix which worked on his machine but unfortunately not mine.  If you have the same issues follow these instructions:

When you load the Top Box, the slaves will load automatically.  Unlink the units by pressing Alt+U.  Hold the shift key down and drag the Top Box to fit neatly on top of the slaves.  You can use the cursor keys for fine adjustment.  When positioned, Press Alt+L to link the units back together.  You can then use the same drag method to re-position the whole machine to suit your screen.

It's set to £25, 30p, 86% and plays a nice game.  A little touch I thought I'd add is on the background of the Top Reels is the actual music to the song Hokey Cokey.  You might need a magnifying glass to read it though.

Many thanks to Reg whose Party Time and Bullion Bars releases helped a long way towards getting this up and running and of course to wizard for his outstanding work in bringing us MFME 6.

Keys?  Sod off you know 'em by now!!

Cheers, hope you enjoy it.

Wow, what a great looking DX.

 

Opens fine for me and retains position. All I had to do upon initial load, was hold shift and drag the whole layout with the left mouse button, so it was placed where I wanted it on my screen.

 

I take it, that it depends on screen resolution, the initial position.i.e if you had it centred on a laptop, with a 1366*768 resolution screen, then it would load centred on another screen of the same resolution, but on a 1920*1080 screen for instance, it would need moving or it wouldn't be centred.

 

But whatever, the trickery of getting this all working and loading linked etc, is amazing IMO.

There is no need to unlink them to move them around, use SHIFT Left mouse inn any window to move the whole lot around in one go, or use SHIFT cursor keys in any window to just fine position that one window.

Yeah.  Nice looking DX this one.  Great for half an hour of mindless fun! :D

 

The one Astra I would love to see working would be Ppppparty fruits!  That machine ended my playing career, as it gave me the biggest shafting of my life.  Never played them again after that as it showed me how bad my habit was getting.  Would still love to play it again emulated though. 

 

Thanks for the layout. :)

cracking release as usual, two very minor things if you don't mind me pointing out!

 

  did you know if you look at your above image a couple of "k's" aren,t lit on the top box decals 

and the top box seven segs for my own personal use i darkened them down so i could see the winnings better

look forward to party fruits another i never played in the wild although seen great you tube vids of it, mainly by jackpot bros nice dot matrix display on it.

Just noticed, that there is no specific area for Astra SYS A1 releases under the downloads unless I'm missing something.

 

Instead there seems to be a mixture of old SYS1 Ace Coin and SYS A1 Astra games in SYS1, which is surely not right?
