I purchased a french version on the Lord of the Rings machine. I can't stand the mix of french and english voice, So I want to replace the game code and re-burn the eprom. Adjusting the switches on the CPU board does not change anything.

So I reased the content of the M27C1001 chip and now I want to put a new code. I am surprised to see that the Zip file that can be downloaded from the Stern website, only contains .100 and .A00 where I would have expected a .BIN file.

Do I miss something ? (certainly ) How can I proceed further ?

Thanks in advance

You might have to contact Stern.

Yes ? OK, thanks a lot for your advice.

I can purchase new eproms but I have the necessary material to do it.

All the files are .BIN. The file name describes which ROM it is, the extension is the version. .A00 = Version 10.00

The LOTR-U## files are the sound and voice ROMs. LOTRCPUA is the game code, LOTRDSP* is the graphics ROM.
