Hi,
Does anyone have all the early solid state Stern Roms in the 2732 format. I can't seem to get it to double correctly. I am trying to get Wild Fyre up and running and need the rom image. I have a burner. But would prefer to just get a whole folder with all of them so I don't have to search for the rest of them in the future.
Thank You

What are you doing to double them up? A command windows with a copy /b rom2.716 + rom2.716 rom2.732 and copy /b rom6.716 + rom6.716 rom6.732 is all you'd need.

Or depending on your burner software you might be able to just append the file twice into the data buffer, but I find it easiest to just do it in the command window.

I can get the 2716’s to work just fine. I am just looking to download an already completed conversion of all the early sterns from 2716 to 2732 ROM files.

Don't think anyone has done *all* of them and posted the work online.
I would just download the 2716 images, create a batch file and create them yourself. Or, instead of doing all of them, when you amy only need one or two.. just do them as you need them.

link is dead for stern roms. But its not hard to find and create 732 images

Label your ROMs consistently. U1.716, U2.716 etc...

Open NotePad and create two batch files. File -> save as, change file type to *.*, save with a .BAT file extension instead of .TXT.

For MPU200 enter into notepad...

copy /b u1.716+u2.716 u2.732
copy /b u5.716+u6.716 u6.732

For MPU100...

copy /b u2.716+u2.716 u2.732
copy /b u6.732+u6.716 u6.732

Then when you want to create a 732 ROM label your ROM U1.716 and etc to match the batch file. Copy the batch file into the directory with the ROMs. double click to run the batch file. Then you have combined ROMs.

30 minutes or so and you could download and do all the stern games or if you just do them as needed should only take seconds per game once you have the batch file created.

Necro bump, but just wanted to make sure I'm doing this right. I have a hot hand that I haven't worked on in a couple years, but my Bally -35's LED is stuck on with these roms I've burned. I am 99% sure the board worked fine before I burned these roms. So, I just wanted to clarify:

1: Download Hot Hand roms from IPDB.ORG
2: Unzip and you will have CPU_U2.716 and CPU_U6.716 and a readme.
3: Create a batch file, and just do the "copy /b CPU_U2.716+CPU_U2.716 CPU_U2.732" ? I don't see a U5 anywhere in the rom files.
4: Do the same for U6.
5: Then make sure the board is jumpered for 2732s.

OR: 2716
Just burn the ROMs to 2716 for U2 and U6, and make sure the board is jumpered for 2716s?

Post a picture of your MPU board showing how it's jumpered and we can then tell you the easiest way to create the ROMs for it.

Thanks fellas. That was totally simple to do. The board is jumpered correctly, and I actually got to a first flash tonight. This was helpful.

(I always want to keep 2732s in all my Bally mpus, however at this point in time, I'm wondering why I am even trying to fix this with all the aftermarket mpus out there. lol)
