Hey Mac...
This is where my buddies game stalls...
Did you get this far or further?
I like casinos and I love slot machines
I lost a fortune, if you know what I mean
Those one armed bandits was the wrong thing to choose
A man with nothing ain't got nothing to lose

I went all the way..  :)

I sent you an email with better explanation, but yes that's exactly what I had in the pic on my third post.  A couple post later I described how I fixed it.  Had to recalibrate the power supply for whacky voltages.

Long story short, the cpu on top is correctly reading the boot disc and going through power on functions, like a computer.  But when it's running it's "slot test" script, it's not correctly turning on the actual slot machine parts.  From what I remember if the script, it's an all or nothing attempt.  Start with your voltmeter on the 3 outputs power supply in the bottom/back of the machine. See if some are whacky.  Than check the cables next.

Parts only machine? What's it missing???  I have another cpu, pretty sure I was finally able to figure out that it just had weak solder joints on the power plug.

Almost all the other parts are generic slot parts.

I'm just going to add some notes here for anyone else that's messing with one of these games ** For Home Use**  ...  I did this on QE2-N.


If you are the creative type and want to make your own custom slot theme based on one of the current paytables on the disk, this is how you'd accomplish it...

1. Familiarize yourself with the great Sticky written by MacGUYver, you'll need this knowledge for burning a new CD.
2. Pick one of the games in Powerpit to use as your base, I used Box Office Bucks.
3. Use your favorite photo editing software to make a new background, new symbols, etc... (I used Photoshop)
   - The symbols need to be .gif's and have a white background
   - Make sure everything is the same dimensions as the original (file size doesn't matter)
   - Save everything as exactly the same file names, and in the same locations

4. By far, the best option at this point is to go into the Powerpit folder, open up startx and edit it. Comment out the section on medium.verification, from the first "if" to the "fi".  This will stop the integrity check and the game will boot much faster.  I'd also suggest this for the other changes that could be made to the disk.

5. Follow the guide to burning a new disk and enjoy!

6. You still will need the password for whatever theme you pick, I wasn't able to get the multigame selector stuff to work in my revision.  I don't think the passwords are secret so I'll post up what I have later.

Side note, I tried to get the IGCA stuff to run from a hard drive unsuccessfully as well as a CF card. I'm sure there is a way, but for now CD's work.   


Hope this helps someone...
