  1. Thanks for this stunning Christmas present. This is one I have not played for real, would have been around when it was released but I guess this is a Nudges Unlimited conversion so perhaps not that many were done? I have played the classic though but am looking forward to playing this, looks great. Hope you had a merry Christmas and Happy New Year.
  2. Can I confirm, do we now have 3 electros (not including black box etc)? Super Nudge Gambler, Hot Dog and Ten Up? Am I missing any more? I've given Hot Dog a few good bashes, have achieved a couple of £16 from £2 gambles and have had the hot dog feature once for £5. I remember that machine well as it was in the bar of the place my dad worked. I did wonder if you could get a 'Nudge Gambler' from the SNG as it is the same machine minus the 4th hold reel button as on Nudge Gambler you could not hod the nudge reel. I think that was pretty much the only difference apart from a different glass design.
  3. Played for a good hour on this. Had forgotten this machine used strawberries. Yes the super start feature definately works, have had 2 already. I do remember feeling a little cheated on this machine when you got 3 of a kind for 20p as if you had 2 of a kind you stood a chance of getting more than 20p. I've not had melons or bell fruits yet. Brilliant work, brings back memories. Thanks once again.
  4. Hi I think I have found an error on reel 3?
  5. Awesome!! Played this many times. There was one in one of my local chip shops for a couple of years. Is the rare super start feature built into this one? I remember the first and only time I got it on the real machine, wondered what was going on when after the jackpot the start light flashing, pressed the start button and all quiet for a few seconds then another jackpot. Excellent to see another elect5ro on the emulation scene, thanks to all involved. I'm working the next couple of days but hopefully get a chance to have a crack at it Sunday or Monday evening. I'm sure this machine does not have nudge buttons? Thanks once again for the layout.
  6. Thanks Pook, that seems to have done the trick. Never been in that screen before. I just marvel at how you layout designers learn all this stuff. All those numbers and settings mean absolutely nothing to me. Thanks for all the hard work.
  7. Ooh, Looks interesting. Never seen or played this one before. I remember the original Cops N Robbers. How do I download this? I can download from Pooks section but not from here. Thanks. Richard
  8. Thanks for this machine. I really like these old BFM machines, lots going on especially this one with several true skill features/hidden features and it seems exchanging on the £2 bells guarantees you £2.40/£4.80 on the skill stop, missed it the first time but haven't since. One of BFM's better machines together with a good sound package. Just one issue, is there an issue with the number reel? I am guessing it is a 24 step reel with 1-12 x 2? There seems to be an issue with one of the 1s as I can go higher and lose or lower than 10 and the '1' appears but I lose. Perhaps it is an emu issue? Thanks for a great game.
  9. Hi Pook Thank you so much for the reply and also thanks for posting the flyer. I found the flyer interesting as when I loaded up the two emulated versions I noticed a slight difference in the colors and wondered why, it is because the author of the 1280 version used the flyer where as the author of the 1024 DX I presumed used a real photo since the colors are greener which was how I remember the machine looking, the same colors as Bank Roll. I guess a flyer which is printed on paper probably slightly different to the machine itself? Something else I noticed with the two emulated versions, they are both set to £2 repeat jackpot where as the ones I played in the arcades were all set to £4 token jackpots and if the jackpot symbols are achievable with nudges on the emulated versions, the display will show £2.00 but will still let you gamble where as when it is set to £4, as soon as you have enough nudges to obtain the £4, the machine will nudge automatically. I presume the roms are switchable since the machine seems to allow for both options. I guess having a £2 + repeat chance jackpot perhaps makes it more likely to get repeats. I never recall seeing this machine in a pub nor Bank Roll come to that where as I certainly remember most of the other machines of this era in pubs. The two releases I have are certainly playable but it would be great to see a nice updated version. Thanks for all your great work. Richard.
  10. Hi Pook I've noticed your recent releases of the old JPM MPS2s. I remember playing these numerous times in pubs and arcades in the early 90s. Have you ever DXed Note Exchange? I have a couple of DXes of this machine in my emulation folder but upon loading them they look rather old, one doesn't work, may be an over credit as it boots up and then hangs with 52 credits in the machine. I just wondered if you have done a version long ago whether you would considering re releasing it or perhaps consider doing a new release if you have never done one before? I remember this machine well and played it many times in different places. It was one of my favorite from that era. On one occasion I had the top feature which went for £20 which at that time was quite an achievement. Thanks Richard
  11. Thanks for the update. Love this machine, I played it a lot for real. I can appreciate the problem with sitting at computers during the hot summer. My home PCs fans would over rev anything from two to three hours after being on from cold. I've never had that problem before. It meant having to switch it off every time I left it for any length of time. It's fine now it has cooled down again. Looking forward to this whenever time permits. I know you have been working hard on updating old layouts, some of which I'm hoping to have time to play over the next couple of weeks as I am off work. Especially those old £3/£4 JPMs. That was well in my era. Thanks for your great work. Richard
  12. Anyone looking for their recovery email from the Mecca, check your spam folders, mine went there. The problem I'm having with the Mecca is I cannot log in, I found my recovery email but I don't know if it is a BT web mail problem but it does not display a link or button, it just says in text 'RESET YOUR PASSWORD' and all I can do is highlight it. I've tried forwarding it to my other BT account which uses a different webmail version but the forward did not work. So at least for the moment, I'm locked out of the Mecca :( If I signed up to the Mecca using my other email address, would Pete be able to transfer my info to the new email?
  13. Hi Does anyone know what's happened to the MPUMecca site? Last weekend it came up with a server change message. I've not switched my computer on for the las few days because of the heat. Tried again this evening and it redirected me to a radio station site. Has it gone forever or is it just some technical problem?
  14. I'll look forward to playing this when I get round to updating to 6.1. Not sure if I have played this before or not. I'm sure these did the rounds at my local pub. The sound was always turned down very low I seem to remember. I remember one in our local pub, one of the features was a skill thing where 20p or 50p lights would light rapidly one after the other and you had to stop it on the correct lamp which was I think was the one before the last lamp. If you missed, the 50p shot you would get 10p for each one you missed, I think you got up to 5 goes. What would usually happen if you were good at it, you could get the first three then it would jump so would throw you just over the cash limit and give you a token win. I'm sure it was the same tech as this.
