Very nice mate, thanks for this. One issue is that the Cherry+4 on middle reel should be boxed. Will let you know if I spot any others.

Fantastic release Vectra.

It was all about numbering with the slot-specifics I don't know,as at the time I was completely hooked on slots loosing 50k over a two year period whilst the (so called friends around me)-were clearing up as was pumping them stupid-happy days not if only we could turn back a clock!

 

Many thanks to all involved with the release.

First off i have got to say i am shit at explaining things.  Yes there is a way to play these, you can't force them.  You basically got to collect everything until a good set up comes along.  For example if your on £1.20 and on a 4 and the next exchange is 2 gambles away and you have no steps to change the number and the gamble will not benefit you a great deal, just collect.  There was a £10 nudge rip when you get just one number on the reels.  The empty was on the feature on Shoot em Up,  you had to stop the reels which had the numbers 3,4,3 on them to step up to jackpot.  The way you could tell if you could empty them was when you collected the feature "Shoot em Up" you had to keep your finger down on start and wedge it,  if the music stopped then you would have unlimited time to get the setup 3,4,3 if not it would time out in the end

Numbering is 3's and 11's on this. If it doesn't show these numbers when not in the feature, it is behind percentage.

 

As poster above said, don't force it. Shoot Em Up is an excellent feature and can be nailed for jackpot or £10 quite easily. Harder on emulator than in real life I find. I seem to remember that if you got either nothing in view (or maybe it was just 1 for mystery win) it would award jackpot as well.

 

Cash Bandiloot is jackpot if you can get 11 or 12 on the number reel (use steps to improve). Also Adrenaline and the features above are high paying. Grab hidden features when you can, there are a couple of crap ones though.

 

The 6+bonus is great for building up Extra Life/No Lose etc as you move between columns. Only really appears when the machine is numbering anyway.

I was having a go at the layout and did record it to show how it was supposed to be played but the file was to big to upload.  The rom on the layout seems to be the one you can empty, however it is not the easiest to do and even harder to do on an emulator.

Thanks for the update, definitely worth it.

 

Always found this machine to be a bit of a chore in real life, to get anywhere, so over £100 in to get the top feature, sounds about right. The sound package on this isn't stunning or anything like that, but it's definitely memorable.

 

Back in the day, so many decent looking Impact DX's were made for Jpemu and many never got a MFME release. Even some of the converted layouts, as great as they are, could still do with a modern makeover.

Really nice DX. It's so good to see layout's getting updated like this. 

 

Recently I've been looking back at some older DX's and it's amazing to see the progress made.

 

I remember when you released the Italian Job 3 DX and I was blown away with how well you did the lamping.

 

You only continue to improve and what I like in particular is when the reels themselves are clear and sharp and properly defined. I hate to see a squashed and aliased/jaggy reel.

 

Cracking release Vec, cheers for continuing to provide your lovely layouts to the scene.

Damn just put a good £120 through this and only got streaker once for a £15 and no repeat. 

 

I was actually feeling the familiar dread and fear whilst playing it, and that's in emulated form.

 

What a horrible machine this was if you decided to try a force.

 

Still a cracker of a DX though, and the sample package is pretty cool.
