    Ok everyone this will probably be the last run of boards if your on the list you will or already have received the email below. If you are wanting a board this will be your last chance. Contact Frank at the number below by 12/10.

    Hi,

    Just wanted to let you know that we now have enough names on our waiting list for Game Plan MPU boards. Therefore, we would like to begin ordering parts by the middle of next week (by 12/10/14).

    By the way, the price for the board will be $279 U.S., plus shipping/handling (which will probably be $16 U.S. in the lower 48 states - outside of this area: please forward your exact address so that we can get an accurate shipping quote).

    Please let us know (by Tuesday, 12/9/14, at the latest) whether or not you'd still like to buy one.

    (Please note: we just need to determine the approximate number of boards to build; so there's no need to send any money/deposit at this time).

    Thanks very much for your patience!! Hope to hear from you soon,

    Doesn't sound like you can get anymore?

    Quoted from policano:

    Last I check a month or two ago, there was a waiting list. Jim was waiting for enough people to be added to the list before ordering a batch of parts for them.

    #10 3 years ago

    This is what I rec'd from Jim May 1. I was #15, and he was looking for 30 (Probably to cover a fixed cost per batch?) before he started the last batch. I just emailed asking for an update.

    Hi Dan,

    Unfortunately, we just sold out of Game Plan MPU boards recently; all thirty pieces, from this lot, are gone. But we have already started a waiting list for another run/lot. We currently have fourteen names on that list - your's would be number fifteen, if you'd like to be added to the list. Then, once we are able to get enough names on the new list, we'll initiate building another lot.

    #11 3 years ago

    There were 18 on the list on June 4, according to the email I received from Jim. At a rate of 3 people per month, it might be a while before the count hits 30.

    #12 3 years ago

    I will email Jim to get on the list. Thanks!

    #13 3 years ago

    Jim had told me that 25 were needed. I signed on in early June making it 19. So only 6 more needed, hopefully will get those soon.

    #14 3 years ago

    Jim are you still taking wait list names?

    & replied to me Monday July 12.

    Hi Dan,

    Yes, we are. At this point we are still looking for another ten names.....

    Same here - please reply to Jim's email if you haven't already.

    #20 3 years ago

    Has anyone heard further updates on this? I hope there enough of us to make a run possible.

    #21 3 years ago

    I just got a Foxy with a trashed MPU. I would be interested in a board!!!

    #22 3 years ago

    If someone can pm me on Sunday reminding me, I would love to add my name to the list. Away from computer and my phone just told me my email has ceased to function at the moment. Knowing my memory though, I won't remember when I get back to town.

    #23 3 years ago

    Please add me to the list . Ill take one. JR

    #24 3 years ago

    Of you want one, you will have to contact Jim directly. I doubt he monitor this thread.

    I just emailed Jim to see about another run of boards, and he said I was number 5 and they needed 20 to bulk order parts.

    Quoted from Davide:

    I believe Jim's board will work in all games expect Cyclopes.

    Is this true, that the echo lake board does not work with Cyclopes? I have one that I was thinking about getting an echo lake board for.

    Quoted from gabegabegabe:

    There is a playfield switch handling issue that only affects the drop targets. Whether your dip switches are set to qualify multi ball after one bank or both, the MPU does not recognize the last drop target dropped.

    For instance, if you have the setting to qualify the lock for multi ball after dropping both banks, the first 7 drops are recognized and awards points except the 8th drop target. Doesn't matter which drop the 8th one is either. The setting for one bank is the same, it won't recognize the 4th drop. The lock won't light and you can't start muliball. All drops register fine in test fine which is frustrating.

    Jim worked on this a long time and never made any progress. I ended up selling my Echo Lake Board.

    #30 2 years ago

    I emailed Jim this morning. I am number 6 and 7. He will do another run if 13 more people sign up.

    #31 2 years ago
    Quoted from schudel5:

    Jim worked on this a long time and never made any progress. I ended up selling my Echo Lake Board.

    I bought this Echo Lake board with every intention of having a new rom put in it for a Star Trip or hope the Cyclopes issue got fixed. You have to send the board back to Jim to do so, he will not just send you the rom for your game. That is his policy. My Star Trip turned out to be a complete basket case on all the boards, and I never got the board upgraded with a new rom. Cyclopes is no go, so this board is no longer needed.

    So if anyone wants a perfectly good Echo Lake board for your Game Plan, it's $225 shipped. Then you send it to Jim for a rom change for your game because it still has the Cyclopes rom in it.
