I saw on ebay a rare Pinball 2000 Flash Prism card.

ebay.com link: Williams Star Wars Episode 1 Pinball 2000 PRISM BOARD Rare Duncan Brown FLASHROM

How many of these cards are available? What is the advantage of them?

And how could it be used/ programmed?

maybe I'm wrong, but all the auction was, was a complete NOS SWEP1 prism board with the daughter board and a set of roms (v0.41)

I've got an extra NOS prism board, daughter board and set of RFM roms, but by no means would I consider it "Rare"

the romset on the daughter board can be re-flashed with a newer/older version of the game code using a pc and serial cable and the Pinball 2000 Update Manager software from here:

or by plugging a P2K PUB board into the extra PCI slot on the computer motherboard, setting a jumper and powering it up

It is an interesting piece of history, but its not much use these days. You would need a way to flash the card which requires both hardware and software. That is if this thing even works. Oh, and the source code which PPS has, but sits on.

I think it is not a normal prism board.

Found some more informations here: http://www.pinball2000.de/prism_infos.html#Duncan Infos

ah, ok

instead of the normal eproms, the daughter board contained flash rom chips

Whether it is possible to pull the data from the card? It would be nice to have the early SWE1 software.

I could have sworn that PPS still has multiple versions of both the RFM and SWEP1 firmwares up on their site

There was 17 of these boards
One is in the proto wizard blocks and gene had some of these

And suspected another one in Playboy.

Is it possible that some are sold in series games?

#10 8 years ago

No they were for flash programming, as the 64meg proms took time to get done

They would only be used prototypes etc

#11 8 years ago

Do I have an advantage with it? Do you know how to use?

#12 8 years ago

Ok so you don't need roms
you flash program the game software instead of swapping daughter boards with roms

Great for software updates for game programmer.

The prism card is the same just the rom board is different

Wonder what the game looks like those boards came from
