Hello All - Like several others, I've run into a lack of speech with my recent Pinbot purchase. I have a F-14 as well, so I tried swapping the ribbon cable with no effect. I took the U4, U21, U22 ROMs to a friend who verified them good. We wiped them and re-burned them just in case, still no change. It seems like a common suggestion next is to look at the CVSD chip and replace it, but I'm wondering what else I could try first before going that route.
Since I have the F-14, any swapping I could do that would help me do some testing? Maybe try the F-14 Sound ROMs in Pinbot and see if the speech from F-14 plays? Or vice-versa, putting Pinbot ROMs in the F-14? I haven't swapped ROMs between games before like that... I'm assuming I'd just take the 3 ROMs I mentioned and swap them?
I'm happy to try various suggestions. Just figured with the F-14 around, worth doing whatever else I could think of before ordering anything, removing the CVSD, etc.
