    I just downloaded Leon's test ROM Lastver4. I'm always cautious about opening zip files. I know Pinwiki has been hacked a few times lately.

    Has anyone used this file lately? Is it safe?

    Thanks

    Quoted from dothedoo:

    I think he’s worried about a virus in the zip file.

    Yes, exactly.

    Has anyone downloaded it recently?

    Thanks

    Quoted from Tomahawkjim:

    I heard about a guy who downloaded the test ROM, he debugged his game and 7 days later he died a horrible death.

    That did it. I'm not going to open it - it probably has Coronavirus.

    One more question - I've rebuilt several Bally and Stern MPU's. So far all have tested good on the bench but none have been tested in games.

    Would running Leon's test ROM help to determine if the MPU will work in a game? Would you bother to run the test ROM on a board that tests fine on the bench?

    Thanks

    I downloaded the file. Last night I unzipped it and all seems fine on the computer. Tonight I try to burn a test ROM.

    Thanks

    Bob
