HELP: BFM Scorp5 and note acceptors / BNV's

21 November 2018 - 10:11 am

Something I am sort of new to, though I have a Red Mummy / NV8.

Been asked to deal with a Mazooma Monopoly game, flashing up a Note error 15, which I have worked out, relates to it's BNV key.

Now I know from my Red machine, the BNV needs to be matched up on the two devices, but I can not for the life of me, work out how this is done on a scorp5.

Mech in question, is a JCM EBA-PB2 (Not upgradeable for the new plastic notes that I do know), so I need help to either install the BNV code (I believe the default code will work in this case), or just disable the mech from the machine all together, although the latter option, I believe reduces the amount the hopper can take (It's on a £70JP - 30p / 50p setup at the mo).

Any ideas?

Forgive the rather sombre tone folks, but think I best explain myself with regards to my comments on my Screen Play thread (MPU Mecca) and Facebook.

Monday morning, had to rush mum (Dawn) in to the QMC, Nottingham, with a suspect over dose.

Hell of a battle in A&E, moved to ICU, and by 7PM, we (Myself, sister, and other relations) unfortunately lost her.

Mental Health even to this day, is one of the great unknowns, and you ask yourself constantly, what could have I done to prevent this, even as her carer? Truth be told, not a clue.

All I can say as some general advice to all, is don't suffer in silence, talk to people, let the ones you most cherish and trust know you need help, and to those who can help, even a kind word for those in need can help..... sometimes amazing what this kind word can do to a person who's suffering.

At this point in time, I have absolutely no clue how to move on (Been her full-time carer for near on 20 years) or what to do next, but certainly for the next two weeks or so, not going to worry about it, though I am concerned as hell what to do with the cat, much as I love Chorlton to death, I live in a top floor flat, and next to no income for the foreseeable future.

Just seen one of this guy's vids pop up on my YT list..... quite a few FME layouts, with one of Pook's layouts the first I spotted, but there are many others.
