I'm not having a great time at the moment, especially with regards to my care...
As this might be viewed as a political point of view, for the discretion of this site's policy I won't comment on it as a post, but link you all to my website's latest update, which includes a link to an article my local newspaper has done with me with regards to my care support...
Here is a layout for BIG Fifteen ( An unofficial release) with the £15 roms within this won't be on the main page as the XXX decal is wrong it should be £2 not £1 unless anyone can redo the £2 decal like the ones in the layout
also on this layout the lamping around the edges is blended better.
Well I have not made a DX for quite some time (two whole years) so here goes...
Here is my take on Bellfruit's Butch Cashidy And The Sundance Quid
Shortcuts can be found in the notes
Thanks go to Andy-1 for playtesting and helping me with some issues
Also thanks to TommyC and Vectra666 for the help and advice both gave me
A big thanks to Johnnyafc for letting me use his classic for my base
And finally thank you to Wizard for the emulator

Well after you released Fortune Trail i thought that would be it for a while. Then BANG!! you've hit us with another cracker. Even though am over 40 which i don't like saying,i never seen this one/play it,so its a bonus for me. JPM at its best.
Thanks go to:
and yourself Ploggy as ever.
I'm 43 but don't feel it.
Just lost 2.5 stone in the last 2 years and feel fitter than I did in my 20's lol.
Took some doing and commitment and a lot of family illness's have contributed too.
I never forget the early slots like the above and all the £1.50-£3 slots that the arcades had row upon row of.
I would never word this as an exciting time,as the coastal arcade industry is beyond struggling across the country.
Through family illness I have visited the Isle of Wight,Portsmouth,Weymouth,Littlehamptom,Hayling Island,Worthing and more recently Great Yarmouth and surrounding areas-and the picture is very bleak. Especially in the over 18 areas of the arcades where even in the height of the Summer holidays,sometimes there was just me and my partner playing the slots with 4/5 staff wandering around with little or nothing to do!
3 arcades went in to liquidation on the Isle of Wight and I can only see this as a continuous trend flooding the country from the south,spreading North.
An Arcade in Bognor which was very popular just off the sea front fell by the way side early last year,so it would never be a location I would choose to open a new venture in the arcade industry.
I agree the arcades the owner has have established a regular following and good reputation but Bogner is a good distance from them and building this takes time.
I personally don't see over 18 areas in arcades lasting longer than the next 5 years as many arcade owners I have met and got to know in my near by town of Blackpool,are simply losing money on them year after year.
More money is made from the children's ticket machines than is made from the over 18 areas,and this is where many arcade owners are now putting there investment into.
My in laws live in Portsmouth and I will be there next year so if the arcade is open then I will have a look and report back as to what it is like etc.
Here's my dx of barcrests alien,never played this machine so thought i would take it on,i have spent many hours on this over the lkast week trying to get it looking ok. Massive thanks to mort for sending me some images he required from Philip Brain Mortimer,so thanks to this bloke too,massive thanks to reg for sorting a classic layout out some time ago which always makes the job easier for a dx. Also mort for all the advice and testing he did for me..All short cuts and credits are in the layout notes,made a few tweaks to get some lamps in the speakers like the real machine, Keys 0 to 4 Are for coin up, 0 = £1 ,9 = £2 ,8 = 50p, 7 = 20p ,6 = £20 Note ,5 = £10 Note and 4 = £5 Note.
Had such a shite year with numerous family problems-lost my aunt to cancer last month,my father in law is on his 5th mini stroke and to top everything of,my uncle with dementia is now end stage and demolishing the home he is in daily!
And ive just to add to you Tommy and all the layout creators and the teams involved with the layouts,you have all kept me going by giving me(and every member on the emulation sites) such wonderful creations which have in turn give me some needed diversion in what has been a very trying year.
finally after £104 in it finally gave a £15 streaker, is there a way to play this and whats the emptier?
are these the first rom set or is another one the original first set?
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!
