#318622 FOBT Simulator.

Posted by Reg on 12 June 2018 - 06:51 AM

So do machines play exactly the same in real play and demo mode? Fruitman69 says they do?
I thought playing in "door open" mode was far far looser than real play. For example one of my machines always gives a big streak and hits the bank limit every time I demo mode. Another the cash or bust button gives a big win every time used where in door closed mode they certainly wouldn't do this with such frequency.


No - I have no reason to believe that he is right on this and unless I saw a legal document saying they were, then I'd say no.  But that would likely only mean UK based hosting of them.


Consider this - a lot of these freeplays are not even hosted in the UK, so it's not as if UK law is going to apply to them as the internet is boundryless.  The UK is not the gambling epicentre of the universe where everything else must comply - which again points to no.


From experience - Having been through a shit load of games for the casino page I have made, it would seem impossible that my luck is completely with me on hthese casino ones in freeplay and yet if I put cash in them, they'd lock up.


Infact, I'd probaly be able to make 5K a day on these free ones if converted to real money - that's not going to happen online and I believe the wins to come in much more - espeically the features when no case is involved.

The thing with this is its built in with the arduino. Without the buttons (menu, start etc) the thing is rather hard to use to navigate. Its designed as full screen and as soon as you go in one game, its hard to come out again without mouse and keyboard which takes the effect away. Im looking at different cabs and touchscreen and will be looking at selling complete units with working buttons etc.


Fair enough - to be honest, I'd be trying to control it with an iPac-V4.   I put about an hour into this last night and I've started on a version for myself for my cabinet - I've gone for a Window version but I control where the games appear. 


I think this is going to work out well.  For the moment at least on the main PC, I've gone for a home button on the bottom right to return to the main menu.  I am going to see what graphics I can rip from my T7 for some of this. :)


Two games demo'd below.

I'd like to see this. Never seen a real FOBT as never go in the bookies.


Good for you - the less people that go in there technically the better.  Looking at this - I think anyone that gets something like the above setup is in for a hell of a treat.


All it is is horror stories now - compared to days of old when you could put a couple of quid down on the greyhounds and know thats all you were going to do when you went in there.

#318118 What machine's from your slotting days would you wish to see emulated

Please feel free to release your version - looks like we have too slightly different games so everyone wins. :)

Bullseye Pounds for Points, That's for Reg to do! He's got an amazing Dartboard lamped up, knocked this up a while ago using it. I shan't be releasing it as i don't have his permission to use it, but the roms are there for anyone who wants to knock up a dart board :jimlad:




Very interesting - you have a slightly different version then myself...

Thoughts are with you and your family.

Been there done it and seen it too many times, there is still no words and it never gets easier when you read what seems to be regular posts like this too often.

Please try to take care of yourself - reach out the Cats Protection League regarding the cat. If I was in a position to take him from you to give a good home I would, sadly I am not.

Terrible times and again please take care of yourself.

anyone know why i cannot download anything from desert island fruits, im signed in and have been able to download before but now cannot access anything :(





It's the zero poster tag to stop people just taking - you'll need to post in the introduction and then I remove the tag and done - I suspect that's the problem.

Give me a shout at DIF if you need the classic layout for this Bank Job game.

#317023 Arduino as pac-drive alternative?

Posted by Reg on 30 March 2018 - 07:28 PM


If you whant use a arduino with Mame and mame hooker for control the leds the source code is :
void setup() {
pinMode(1, OUTPUT);
pinMode(2, OUTPUT);
pinMode(3, OUTPUT);
pinMode(4, OUTPUT);
pinMode(5, OUTPUT);
pinMode(6, OUTPUT);
pinMode(7, OUTPUT);
pinMode(8, OUTPUT);
pinMode(9, OUTPUT);
pinMode(10, OUTPUT);
pinMode(11, OUTPUT);
pinMode(12, OUTPUT);
pinMode(13, OUTPUT);
void loop() {
  while (Serial.available() > 0) {
    int pin = Serial.parseInt();
    int value = Serial.parseInt();
  if (Serial.read() == 'x') {
    digitalWrite(pin, value);




after you must creat the folder .init in mame hooker for each game like this :


MameStart=cmo 4 baud=9600_parity=N_data=8_stop=1
MameStop=cmc 4
lamp1=cmw 4 2., cmw 4 %s%, cmw 4 x
lamp2=cmw 4 3., cmw 4 %s%, cmw 4 x
lamp3=cmw 4 4., cmw 4 %s%, cmw 4 x
lamp4=cmw 4 5., cmw 4 %s%, cmw 4 x
lamp5=cmw 4 6., cmw 4 %s%, cmw 4 x
lamp8=cmw 4 9., cmw 4 %s%, cmw 4 x
lamp6=cmw 4 7., cmw 4 %s%, cmw 4 x
lamp9=cmw 4 10., cmw 4 %s%, cmw 4 x
lamp12=cmw 4 13., cmw 4 %s%, cmw 4 x
lamp7=cmw 4 8., cmw 4 %s%, cmw 4 x
lamp10=cmw 4 11., cmw 4 %s%, cmw 4 x
lamp11=cmw 4 12., cmw 4 %s%, cmw 4 x
lamp13=cmw 4 13., cmw 4 %s%, cmw 4 x



How is any of this easier then using this...

...then you use the default config and voila, every game is setup perfectly.

#316668 Club monopoly wonders of the world layout,/sound roms?

Posted by Reg on 20 March 2018 - 09:22 PM

Tried posting here, but got SQL errors.

Basically, yes and yes.

I'll look at tidying up my classics for release as I believe them to be 100% ok.  That'll give you the roms you want.

#316667 Club monopoly wonders of the world layout,/sound roms?

Posted by Reg on 20 March 2018 - 09:20 PM

These layouts both look ok... ...I'll look at updating them for a relase with the working rom sets.



#315895 {IMPACT}Empire's Football Fever Wdx

Posted by Reg on 11 February 2018 - 07:26 PM

Great looking DX, so worth taking the time to do it. Also on one of the older emulated tech, so another plus point.


It's Empire Games, so it's no surprise that it may play a bad game, although of course I haven't played it enough yet to see that.


A machine that I've seen mentioned pre v5 several times, about it not being emulatable. As an aside, do we know what exactly was the issue for it not to be a runner back in the day. Maybe other older machines from the older tech era, that we have great resources for, that can now be emulated.




Thanks for this ( the layout ), your comment there WAC goes with Tommy's comment above !


Never before has there been so much hate for a game in so few posts !


At least it's done now... :D ...again, thanks for the work that went into it - it's twice as hard when you have a machine you hate !

Posted by Reg on 11 February 2018 - 07:24 PM

Many thanks for this - you're going to throw everyone with the title "Classic What's Up Doc", they'll think Classic - but not DX, I guess "When is a classic, not a classic ?"
