Just an update, I talked with Marco (MarAlb) about offering eproms with this tester for anyone interested in ordering assembled boards and I'm pretty sure we'll have something setup there so that I can offer either Leon or Marco versions of eproms via Pinitech.com @ http://www.pinitech.com/products/gottlieb_universaltester.php I have some 2732 eproms on-the-way. Marco will get a small kick-back for eproms that sell with his version of the code. Will probably price the eproms at around $10 for the Marco version and send $5 his way. I just need to pay for eprom cost and a little bit of time to program/label them, but the awesome code is kudos to Marco
For the Leon version.. I'll probably offer that eprom a little cheaper since the functionality is much more basic. I'll use proceeds from that eprom as donations to Pinside. I always wanted to work something out with this board so I at least had some compensation for building/assembling the board & then there was also some kind of "giving back" since it was Leon's design and code (originally).
I highly recommend Marco's code. You can try Leon's code out as well, but Marco has put in a TON of work into his eproms. If you just go the "free" route with everything (ie. ordering boards off OSHPARK, and asking Marco for his code).. please consider finding a way to donate to Marco for all the effort he put into the test ROMs. He's a giving person and probably wouldn't ask anyone to donate.. but if we want these ROMs to improve or other cool test ROMs for various boards (he has lots of them!!) then throwing him a few bucks ain't gonna hurt Like I said, if you buy the eprom through me I'll make sure he gets the donation.
In other news, I'm seeing a steady stream of downloads for the Leon instructions I transcribed. So it does look like quite a few people are finding this adapter.. maybe ordering boards and using it. I'm surprised there isn't more talk here!
If you've used this board and found it helpful, let's hear it! I'm sure Marco would be pleased to hear people have found his test ROM code useful as well!
