Adding Games To My G23
« on: January 18, 2024, 04:02:00 AM »
Hi Everybody,
This is my first post to NLG and it's actually kinda exciting.  :propeller:
I've just come into ownership of an IGT G23.
It's a great machine!
I just need to upgrade it a bit.
One of the things I need to upgrade are the games.
It only has a few video slots.
I believe 14, but I'm away from it right now.
I want it to have all of the games in my list (so long so not sharing it in this post), but I don't know how to do that or where to even start.
What do I need to do?
Please advise.
Thanks.
I'm watching you all.

You can share the game titles you're looking for.

But if you're just starting, there is an up front cost unfortunately.  Do as much reading of the FAQ's and how to's here in NLG!

1.  To make any changes to the machine, add games, modify settings, etc.   You need an ekey7 USB dongle key.  About $300, ones for sale are posted in the classifieds fairly often.
2.  Does your machine have "show bios" chips.    If not, then any game you want to add, you'll have to also get the matching USB license dongle and plug it in when you enable the game or it won't allow it to be used.   

If you can get the show bios chips.  Available on ebay.   And swap them out in the brainbox (CPU).   You'll need that ekey7, and likely an OS loader, and loaders for each game you want to add.
But with the show bios chips, then you won't need license dongles again.    Read up on initial setup on an AVP, loading it from scratch, and how to load games.   There's youtube videos for all of that.

Without the ekey7, you can't do a thing.  And without show bios chips, you'll need the license dongle for each game you want to load.  If you do have show bios, then all you need is the ekey7, and you just need the game loaders on a USB key to add additional games.  Which is relatively easy.

Or you can even take the easy way.  If you know what family your AVP is.   Fam14 is most common, but there is Fam20.  You can buy an entire brainbox, with show bios chips installed, and even an SSD with the OS and a bunch of games already loaded.   You'll still need the ekey and a diag key (those are cheap, the  ekey7 is expensive).    But you can then do almost anything.   If you bought a premade brainbox for your machine and had the ekey7 and diag key.  You can reset your G23 after putting a new preloaded brainbox in, enable the games you want that are on it, and you're done!   Then you can add any other games inidivdually with just a usb key with the game, and the ekey7 from then on.

I'd check with RB here first before heading to Ebay for show BIOS.

https://newlifegames.com/nlg/index.php?action=profile;u=164  Ron's Profile

My guess is that with 14 games on it you already have show boots. Still, Ron is the person to contact for most of your AVP needs

Yup Ron is the man! Contact him for bios chips, games, diagnostic key and he may even have an E key.

Thank you all for your replies!

I would've never thought that the answer to my technical question would be "Talk to Ron"... but it turns out that, yes, that was the answer. :propeller: Ron helped me get what I needed to customize my game library and have it run Game King 8.3R.

I did not need to worry about SHOW BIOS apparently, but I did need to buy an EKEY000007 and a diagnostic key, although I don't remember the exact name of it.
I'm watching you all.

Glad to hear you got what you needed. Ron is a great guy! FYI on my G23 I don't run GK 8.3R. What I do is install the individual poker games that I want along with all my slot games. The GK package takes up a lot and reduces how many slot games you can have. I'd rather have more slot games installed than a crap load of poker games. But to do this you would have to wipe the machine and start from scratch.

Yah, I was told the Game King package really hogs up the NVRAM… to which I said “I have no clue what that means”. I just agreed and went along with it. I have 3 3-reel slot games and maybe 8 or so video slots installed and NVRAM sits at 64%. Sounds like a good percentage to me.

64% is good. You could easily add more games. Do you have MLD monitor? Some games require MLD monitor.

Yay! I needed to buy a part, so I went to eBay, found the part, bought it, and then found out that Ron was the seller! LOL I had no idea! Could'a just emailed him.

Okay, nice! Yes, I have the MLD monitor. It's good for the most part, but it absolutely sucks for Roulette. Does anybody else have this problem where you have to find the perfect spot to press? Certain areas seem very difficult to press a button. Is the MLD model not really made for Roulette?

THAT WAS THE PROBLEM! Now the Roulette game is super precise after I calibrated it! Just had to turn the key a few times. I can press any button I want… straight up, corner, whatever, and all the buttons like undo, clear all, start, etc. all work perfectly! Even pressing the arrows on the main menu to change denominations works great now! THANK YOU TILT!

You're welcome!  It's pretty important to have it calibrated good when you do the bottle shoot bonus round on Western stars too.  Those bottles are pretty close together and if it's off you'll touch one bottle and shoot another  :24:.  Glad that worked out for you and it's working like it should  :applause:
