I'm doing something wrong, any ideas?

Wanted to update code on my Sopranos, checked the manual which states a 27C040 for CPU and Display. Erased a few I had, verified blank. Went to Stern site, downloaded 5.0 for both. Burned on my GQ-4X, verified and read, checksums matched. Swapped um in the machine...First attempt: "Stern" came up on DMD, pf lighting blinking/relay clicking. Burned/verified/etc second set...nothing on DMD, PF lighting blinking/relay clicking. Reinstalled original chips, game is fine...

Let me know what this dimwit did wrong, lol

Thanks...

Match with the file sizes.

CPU image is 128KB = 1024Mbit, uses a 27010. U210 in the manual should match.
Display image is 512KB = 4096Mbit, uses a 27040.

Manual shows this for CPU (U210)

Thats the maximum size EPROM Whitestar supports - those are generic Whitestar schematics. Not the actual size for Sopranos.

Look in the manual, doctor pinball page "DR 1".

Ok, so by using too large a chip it won't work? Bare with me, my brain has rotted over the years, everything useful I used to know is long gone...

If you mirror the rom image 4x and burn that into the 27040, it will work fine.

I would just use a 27010.
