Barcrest - Monty Python's Flying Circus - UHD


Here it is, I'm pretty happy with how it's come out. If anything is obviously wrong, let me know - I will update it if required!

Only doing a £15 version at the moment, I will consider the £5 version later. 

NOTE - I designed this on my two gaming PCs, this is a UHD layout and does feature a fair few blended lamps so will potentially not run well on lower specced / older machines. I do apologise if that is the case!

Thanks to @Reg for graphical advice and hints, and @Boulderdash for playtesting - do note that I have done some work on this after testing and may have introduced new errors, so again, if you find issues, let me know :)

Notes copied from the layout :

Quote

Barcrest 'Monty Python's Flying Circus' AWP - on MPU5 tech.

£15 cash jackpot at 25p play, set to 78% payout as released.

Layout VERSION 1.0.1 designed by SlotsMagic using MFME v20.1

** Version History **

1.0.1 - Corrected window size, corrected layout notes, corrected cabinet type (Genesis).
1.0.0 - Original release.

** Keyboard Shortcuts **

Insert £1 = 0

Start = Spacebar
Hold 1 = 1
Hold 2 / Hi = 2
Hold 3 / Lo = 3
Mr Barcrest = M
Feature Exchange = E
Cancel = ' (above 'TAB' key / left of '1' key)
Collect = C

Take Bonus = B
Take Cash = T
Take Feature = F
Cash Knockout = K
Feature Knockout = L

** Notes **

I've used higher than normal resolution for the reels, and also some more blended lamps and transparency than I might normally use. Slower laptops and PCs might struggle. Sorry for that!

Machine has been created using photographs I took of my own machine. As released it is on £15 Jackpot, I do have a £25 kit (but these ROMs don't support it), and a £5 kit (will release at some point).

I have made this machine for selfish, nostalgic reasons. It isn't the best machine to play but I've many happy memories of playing it with dad and wanted to do it some justice!

** Thanks To **

Johnnyafc for the classic layout I used as the base for this release!
Reg (graphical advice and support) and Boulderdash (playtesting)!
Any issues blame me, not them! I never was good at following advice or instructions!

Christian J Wren a.k.a. Wizard (1965-2020) for MFME itself. 
Cheers for the last 20(ish) years of joy.

Everyone else at DesertIslandFruits.com for putting up with me :D

** Legal bit **

This layout was created by me, for me, and shared amongst the people of DesertIslandFruits.com. If I decide to release it to other forums I will do so, it is not to be shared / hosted elsewhere without my permission, nor to be included in any bundle with or without the emulator(s) or otherwise sold or traded.

just put a few quid through got jackpot runs ok/smoothly on my lappy and its not the best 

just one thing, set the cabinet to genesis for the proper payout sounds when coins hit the tray! do this via configuration in edit mode

Great release and thank you for making this.  Now - may I have the one in your garage as this is clearly no use to you... :)

Thanks for your help, and as for the real machine, it doesn't get played as much as it should, but it's been bloody freezing and not even my mighty teeny fan heater will take the edge off! To be honest though, if I go the MFME cabinet route, I'd probably still keep Monty, simply because the hardware is bulletproof. Just wish the reels were in better condition!

Thanks  brilliant release :) 

, my homers meltdown is the same , soon as the DX came out the machine has just been left 🤣

... Make sure the battery hasn't eaten the EPOCH board :D

Thanks for the beautiful dx.Really like a dx that scales properly on shift f3 .It adds a sense of realism . 

Never used Shift F3, just tried it on my wide-screen and stretched the hell out of it, might work well on my vertical monitors though!

Wondered why it sounded like a casino cab when paying out, will sort that out tomorrow. I'll correct the notes too so they reflect the 25p stake, and also so they don't make it look like I'm blaming the people who helped me for any mistakes, that was a typo (I was in a rush to upload so I didn't miss too much Corrie... Don't laugh!)

Looks great, thanks for this. Funnily enough we do actually now have the MPTR £25 Roms thanks to loo who posted them the other day. 

Typical :D

Didn't really like the £25 gameplay, but will definitely look into releasing the full set since it's only a couple of decals on the £25 (the £5 would be a bit more work but still not a huge job) :)

Fantastic release.

Stunning graphics and amazing artwork-I can see a lot of hard work and time has gone into the finished layout, that's some dedication.😀

Like a few other members I would love to see the £25 version released. Only ever played that once, but it was set on 82% and gave a real good game.

Many thanks with all involved with a dynamite release.

Thanks for this:)

A nice clean layout for my new 43" 4K portrait setup:)

BTW...What width is the actual machine? I am just wondering how far out my set up is from the actual size. (I don't have any access to any actual fruit machines)

Will measure for you soon, as heading out to the garage in a bit once I've got up (was at work til 11pm). Due to have a knackered machine collected and another T7 delivered (Community games?!!) so need to get things sorted out there.

Mind you, might have to clear some snow and put some salt down!

This looks brilliant. 

Obviously going to be my layout of choice for this machine. 

Nice to see it getting plenty of downloads. 

I looked back at the old layouts and thought I'd have a crack at making something better, and that's not to slag the old designers off - I know the flyer isn't great (I've about 4 identical flyers for this) and the hidden text was probably harder to do back in the old days, especially at the smaller resolutions. Working on larger layouts makes it a lot easier for someone who is picking up skills as they go along :)

Glad people are enjoying it :)

Will sort out the v1.0.2 version later, forgot I was working longer hours yesterday :D
