Some of the folks here might have Cal Omega game files to load into eproms, you'd just have to ask about that and see if anyone responds. These game software files are sometimes called binary files, or bin files, or binaries by various people, just in case you see them referred to that way. To load them into an eprom you will need an eprom programmer. These eprom programmers are often called "burners", they connect to a computer and you transfer the game software file from the computer to the eprom programmer and it "burns" (loads) the software into the eprom. There are many eprom programmers for sale, here is one example:

http://www.mcumall.com/comersus/store/comersus_dynamicIndex.asp


Also, there is a hobby called "MAME" where the guys take old arcade game software like PacMan, Galaxian, etc and they load the games onto eproms for use in an arcade game they build or buy. Some of the MAME websites post all of those game software files for download, and many include games like Cal Omega video poker. So you can probably find some Cal Omega software files at a MAME website, you'd just have to search the internet for that. Here is one example of a MAME website with Cal Omega game software files to download (scroll down to the bottom part of their webpage screen):

https://www.emuparadise.me/M.A.M.E._-_Multiple_Arcade_Machine_Emulator_ROMs/Cal_Omega_-_Game_7.6_(Arcade_Poker)/11966


The eproms themselves can be bought at various places, however the ones used on your mpu may be fairly old-style and not readily available. When you buy eprom chips like this they will be unprogrammed (called empty or blank) so you will need to program them yourself. Look on the back of your eprom for the mfr part number, it will be something like "2732" or "2516" or similar. Or post a closeup photo and we can identify it. You can't just use any eprom chip, it has to be compatible with your mpu. Older style eproms can be bought on ebay. Also, here is a place that I have used:

http://www.epromman.com/

If you are lucky someone will have some Cal Omega game eproms that are already programmed, they would be sold to you as a set since you'd need all of chips to plug into your mpu. Sometimes people take apart a machine and sell the parts from it, including the game software chips.

Your game eproms on your mpu now may be ok, I'd suggest you get your machine working with the display problem fixed before going into game software replacement, unless you think your game chips are bad.

Maybe that guy you got the machine from has some parts or maybe he has a bad machine that has a display you can use? When you bought the machine with no display from him what was the plan, did he give you any suggestions?

You can try searching thru the discussion threads here on NLG, see if there is information about converting a machine from RGB type display to an LCD. Or there may be a converter box that takes RGB input and has VGA output, that would probably let you connect your machine to just about any LCD screen. Then you'd just have to get an LCD display of the correct size to fit the opening in your machine. Look for something like this video converter board, it might do what you need and the cost isn't too bad:

https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01IBJCAIG/ref=s9_acsd_simh_hd_bw_b1Avd_c_x_1_w?pf_rd_m=ATVPDKIKX0DER&pf_rd_s=merchandised-search-11&pf_rd_r=KJ823E53GYJEXQH866RJ&pf_rd_t=101&pf_rd_p=bd3f8f0b-0dd6-50d5-b530-c30b0af28ad9&pf_rd_i=280341


Something to be aware of-  because someone removed the display from your machine that may be because your machine wasn't working when they did that, so something could be wrong with the mpu board. That's an unknown at this time but you should be aware of it. It doesn't seem likely they would have taken a display from a good working machine, although it might have happened. That guy you bought it from may have some of these answers for you.

If this were mine, I think I would look in going the route of a LCD monitor with a VGA to LCD adapter board. The chance of you finding a good working CRT and chassis seems slim, unless the is a person or place that sells and service video arcade games in your area. They might have a working CRT, but it may have an image burnt into the screen from the game it was removed from. If you do have a person or place near you, they might be able to help with the conversion to LCD?

That's really good news, sounds like your machine just needs a display. As Amechanic said, you might be able to find another crt display that will work, if you live in a bigger city there may be a place that repairs arcade equipment, slot machines, computers, etc and they might have one. Or you might be able to get one over the internet, like from ebay, but the shipping cost could add up to more than you want to spend.

I'd evaluate the cost and hassle of getting a crt display (RGB type ??) and compare it to the cost of converting it to LCD. There are smaller LCD displays that are not too costly.

How much did the Cal Omega machine cost you? If it wasn't too much then whatever you spend to get a display will still be an acceptable investment in a game machine that is fun.

Ok, I am really stupid but the big buck hunter machine i got really big one. had the same connector on the crt and it also had a pinout next to it, Sorry for wasting your time. Also I need just a tiny bit more help. I connected the video connector to a vga connector with wires and it gets the video signal but says it can display it. I figure it is too low resolution for an LCD monitor.

I reread this earlier post you made but still don't understand it completely. Can you go into more detail about what you did here and what you are saying? Remember, we aren't there to see what you are talking about, we only have your written words so it is important that you explain as fully as you can.

Pictures are great at helping us to know what you have there. Maybe post a photo of the big buck hunter crt showing its cable or connector that you used on the Cal Omega machine. And that diagram you mentioned that is on or near the big buck hunter crt that shows the pinout. Post as many photos as you want to.

When I bought the Double Up Poker machine the man selling them also gave me a Silver Strike Bowling Machine with no monitor, A big buck hunter machine with 35" crt monitor(two Pieces) with no game boards, and the Golden Tee 2004 Fore Screen. I looked on the back of the big buck hunter screen and realized that there is a video connector on the chassis the same as the one on the Double Up Poker machine. There was also a sticker next to the connector that gave two letter abbreviations of each of the pins on the connector. The sticker with the pinout also matched the pinout I constructed with a multimeter on the Game Board of the Poker machine. I hooked the video connector of the Poker Machine to the connector on the 35" crt for Big Buck Hunter and the Picture from cal omega Double up poker showed up. Now I need the front glass for double up poker and a monitor or at least the size the monitor needs to be. A manual would also be nice.

That's very good progress from where you started with this project. What is next - finding a monitor the right size to fit the Cal-Omega cabinet?

Did you see the recent posting about a Ceronix crt monitor for sale?

NLG member Jim at Midwest Slots has a monitor for sale, did you see his posting (shown below)?

I have brand new 1493 chassis available for sale, these were factory set for 220 volts,  Lisa had a tech tell me what had to be done to them to convert them to 120, I think it was to remove a couple of diodes??

50.00 plus the shipping.

Jim

Hmm, I took it to be the whole display but maybe not. You can send him a pm to double-check. Even if it isn't complete he might have a display for your machine, doesn't hurt to ask him to find out.
