Hi pinheads

My RFM doesn't work any more. The test menu mentioned that a badcheksum on rom U109 occures. So I tried the daughterboard (romboard) on another prism card and it works flawless.

I think the prism self is defective. Has anyone such a spare card to sell?

Thanks

We are not supposed to post this information on the forum. So I have to say it as a riddle.

Search google for Nucore/Pinbox and install it on a PC and you are back playing. Crap, I suck at riddles. lol

Thanks but I don't want the transitional solution with nucore or pinbox. Many pinside users swear on how easy the old hardware can be fixed (there are hundreds of posts) but what if the prism dies?

Back to the roots I am looking for one or two prism cards for my original computer hardware!

You may change you mind when you see how much Prism cards go for:

I have 3 unused prism cards but I don't know what romset is on each since they're not labeled. $300 plus shipping ea

Change the battery on the prism card, then reprogram the game with the latest software version. You have probably just lost the game program code which is stored in flash memory on the prism card. I just dealt with this on my machine because I wanted to play a RFM playfield on my SWE1 and only had the daughter card to swap (so my machine was trying to run RFM roms with SWE1 game code) but a dead battery would probably cause the same thing. The game program is installed on the prism card flash memory and the daughter card only contains basic ROM data for a pre-release version of the game, graphics and part of the sound. The game is designed to continue to run and be playable if it loses the flash code, but it's certainly not enjoyable without the sound. If you turn on your machine and get a pre-release version of software (I was showing version 0.8) with no sound and a checksum failure for ROM 109, then that's probably your problem. You can get more info on the solution at my post on the subject. Good luck.
