Anyone know where I can get a chip with version G-5 on it or an image so I can get it burned?
Going to put leds in my machine and thought I'll may as well upgrade from the L-4 rom and replace it with the non ghosting rom.
I know there is an available non ghosting rom but I'd like to get the 'xtra balle' fix as well that was included in the G-5 roms.

johnwartjr and if you ask nicely maybe he can apply the noghost patch to L-5 for you

John won't do it. Violates his agreement with PPS, unless things have changed.

Where would a FT owner get this ROM at?

Anybody can make it with the publicly available stock L-5 rom and applying the wpc ghost patcher to it. I have it.

That doesn't fix the extra ball bug.

What is the extra ball bug?

#12 6 years ago

Attract mode display bug when the machine is set to award extra balls:
FT L5 bug

Code needs to be patched to correct it (LED patcher does not fix this):

Google is your friend.

Great info. I have always wondered why that did not fit. But the real question is does that mess up a colorDMD?

#14 6 years ago

Not sure what you mean by "mess up".

Do you mean break it/render it non-functional? No.


#15 6 years ago

I thought colorDMD works by someone coloring the expected graphic on the dmd. If the graphic is changed they would need to have programming for the new graphics. They do know about some changes between firmware versions.

I wonder if this one they have a color frame for?

#16 6 years ago

It's not a graphic it's text, so it shouldn't be an issue.
