    I would!

    It already has a coin cell. They don't leak very often. Probably not needed.

    #4 2 years ago

    Go for it. You can never have too much NVRAM games.

    I always had Bally solidstate pins... (i should've kept my Fathom...) anyway, i'm not good in tech... so, what's a NVRAM ???

    LMGTFY

    SS memory chip to replace batteries on the board. Retains your settings and scores and will never leak.

    Overkill for this board that uses coin style batteries, but doing it up front is always better if you want it.

    so, without it, does come with a std AA batteries holder?

    #8 2 years ago

    Depends on which one you are ordering. The v 3-7 combo is a watch battery. Not sure about the others.

    Why don't you go tot the rottendog website and look at the pics or talk to the distributor about it?

    the ROTTENDOG MPU327-3 MPU / DRIVER COMBO WILLIAMS SYSTEM 3, 4, 6, 7 seems like it comes with a battery setup... but it maybe the one that costs an extra $25 i guess...

    Not sure what you are saying. That one has the lithium watch battery right in the center. It will last a very long time and won't ever leak.

    It is even shipped with a battery, so my advice is save your money.

    #11 2 years ago

    so, it actualy comes with it and is not the NVRAM for $25 extra?

    #12 2 years ago

    2032 batteries are very inexpensive...

    #13 2 years ago

    You are fine either way. My preference is to always use NVRAM instead of any type of battery.

    #14 2 years ago

    Yes the "standard" comes with the watch battery.

    #15 2 years ago

    it's a 9/10 over all, but cost me $400 repairs so far and still bugs. last time, i closed it up in a middle of a game, and it never booted since...

    it is a 9/10 all around, but always bugging and cost me over $400 repairs so far... last time, i was playing and turned it of without the game was over and it never started after... everything is on, but will not get the game going...

    PS. I may've posted this twice!!!

    Did the Rottendog fix it are you happy with their board set?

    #18 2 years ago

    Get the nvram, I have an mpu327 and among other things, it drained the batteries in only days.

    This is an FYI for those considering the Rottendog board for Black Knight. It appears there is a systemic problem with the board that many folks are experiencing - see this post
    https://pinside.com/pinball/forum/topic/black-knight-ball-advance#post-4064472. The sound does not work and the ball in play will not advance when a ball drains.

    Rottendog has acknowledged the problem but has not fixed it. I have received a flashed rom that did not solve the problem and most recently a new replacement board manufactured in October 2017 that has the same problem.
