I'm working on a client's Williams Laser Cue, and I am attempting to replace the board with an all-in-one board, but I see they are now no longer compatible with System 7.

I couldn't find anything in Google, and I have no idea how this flew under my radar.

Can someone enlighten me? And point me to a working System 7 replacement boardset?

Rottendog's MPU had an issue with system 7 games, and they dropped support for it since it wasn't able to be resolved.

"Please note as of 1/5/2018 System 7 games(including Black Knight) are no longer supported, Rottendog is only supporting games System 3 through System 6. A parts change due to availability created a problem making it unusable in most System 7 games, it supposedly works in some, and Rottendog cannot find a solution"

Swemmer MPUs work with system 7 games, but I'm not seeing any for sale at the moment. They're usually posted on ebay or ksarcade.

wow, had anyone tried the French All in One Board with Sound Board Built in?

I'm curious how they are!

I have a RD combo in Time Fantasy, Jungle Lord and Barracora with no issues. Black Knight is the major culprit, and of course, they most common System 7 by a mile.
