Quoted from ---BFG---:
I have a couple videos I could send on Facebook messenger if you’re on there Benjamin Franklin granger. The batteries are good through 2024, not that that means anything, but the game plays just fine in all other respects. (It also came from
An operator in the area who totally restored it too to bottom, clear coat and all, although it’s been in my friend’s possession for 4 years or so...) Are the Roms available iPdb or somewhere my friend Has a burner if so
You can get the 10.0 roms free on Sternpinball.com under SUPPORT->GAME CODE. If you want the 10.02 so you can have a native shaker motor, you need a PAL chip, too. Since that was supposed to be an LE exclusive, you can't just download 10.02. I think borygard here on pinside has the roms and PAL chip if you PM him.
What batteries are in there now really doesn't say anything. It's what was in there before that may have leaked at some point in the past and not been cleaned up properly, and the traces are finally starting to fail from the corrosion. It's very common. The factory reset not working is weird, and makes me think that.
I don't submit to the dark lords of Facebook, but why not just post the video to youtube and include a link?
