JPM's Around The World In 80 Days - System 5 tech, £6 Jackpot, 20p Play, 78%. Keyboard shortcuts are the usual.
Thanks to Ploggy for various, after my request if this machine could be emulated. Reelfruits and Reece and Am, for their youtube videos. To whoever supplied the roms for FME. Wizard for making this and thousands of other machines playable via emulation.
The layout may be a bit bright for some. But I'm hoping if you look at the youtube videos mentioned above, where possible, you can see, I have really tried to capture as many details of the real machine, including colours on the board and the layout of the machine overall, rather than just doing a generic bland, everything having the same colour board.
Been my favourite layout I've done so far, because it is a machine that has been in my top unemulated machine up until now and you have to work out a lot more by playing, then you do on later tech machines to discover the lamps and reels etc....
Hoping no one else has started, this will be be next release. Ploggy posted up a blank layout for it, with a few bits added and it's a machine I have always wanted to see emulated, so decided to give it a go.
I currently have this video as my only reference, but it's still very helpful
It will be 20p £6 jackpot, which is very nice to have.
I'm currently making slowish progress, as unless I'm missing something, you have to work out the reel symbols by yourself. Lamps wise also you need to work it out yourself, although once you get some of the lamps in an area, you can work out the rest from the lamp test.
It is running and as you can see, I have been around landing on most of the board and it accepts coins/pays and meters register. So far worked out some reel symbols, by playing and collecting some features.
Any advice on working stuff out, or am I right and you have to do everything with the machine not helping with symbol identification and also only offering limited help with Lamps?
I think this may become a FAQ and also useful as some people won't know and thus benefit from this excellent addition to MFME.
A new feature with v6.0 enables you to link the top box and slaves together, so you just click to open the top box of a machine and it will load in all the slaves and position them correctly.
But first you need to link the top box and slaves together, here's how.
1/ If you already know how to open up them all individually then do that first, using v6, by using the same method as you would have opened them in v5.1 (game manager users, can now right click on the slaves and open up a new instance)
2/ With them open, make sure you position everything on screen where you want, so i.e. position the slaves correct, remove the file menu, by pressing f1 on each individual slave. If you need to reposition then press esc and adjust.
3/ With everything positioned correct and the file menu not showing on any of the slaves etc, click on the top box, so it is now in focus.
4/ Now push alt L and you will see it say thats the top box and slaves are now linked.
5/ Press ctrl q and it will close everything down, save layout if it asks.
6/ Now when you open the top box for the machine, all the slaves will open and everything will be positioned where you want it and no file menu showing (if that's what you want). i.e you no longer manually need to open up multiple instances of MFME and the slaves individually.
