Hi Guys,
i am struggling with my Blackout the background sound during the gameplay does not work.

All sound effect and speech are working.
There is a setting number 35 (Background Sound, Bonus multiplayer memory, Attract mode Sound)
where i have tried all more settings like 01, 03, 13 but the result is the same.
Factory default is 03.

I have changed the base sound board (without speech) to an another one, another type2 eprom also the same no background sound.

thanks for your feedback!

Do all your sounds work in coil test?

#3 7 days ago

yes all sounds working from the coil test.

#4 7 days ago

from the coil test 9-13 are the sound effects all working.
May there are some additional setting or should be working as default ?

I have had issues where the driver board jumpers are not set correctly. This will give the wrong or no background sound even though they all work in coil test.

1) Was this driver board the original board and worked ok with this one in the past?

2) Do you have another driver board you can swap and see if the problem continues?

Which jumpers were those?

There are many jumpers on the sound board that could affect things. can you check all the jumpers (W1, W2, etc) against the diagram in the manual? How do you have your dip switches set?

The jumpers are used on the System 7 driver boards. Just make sure you are using a system 6 driver board. This is a mute issue though if it worked in the past with this driver board

I thought sys 7 only had them in the switch matrix?

Yeah. I don't think they specifically have anything to do with the background sound but I had the wrong driver board in a Blackout and it was having the exact problems. It also had the wrong sounds on different switches. I found a system 6 driver board and that fixed it.

Although if this driver board worked fine in the past then this is not your problem

i would have said the only difference is the switch matrix 0 ohm links replacing the resistors ... i have to wonder if what you had was simply a faulty driver board ( pia probably) and the second "system 6" one was just one that worked?

I would have thought that too but the other system 7 one I tried did exactly the same thing. It was odd as it just choose the wrong sounds and no background sound. All sounds worked in the switch test and the game played fine. Speech worked fine too.

I've noticed the new combo reproduction board is having issue with sound for system 7 games and now doesnt support it.

I think there is something else different in the System 7 for sound.

The driver board is not from this machine the original one was burn out.
On the new one i have changed the interconnect board, tested all PIA output with Leon test eprom, wrong transistors were replaced.

The jumper settings on the Sound board are correct (W2,5,7,9,10,15).

As far as i know the only difference between System 3-6 and 7 driver board that System 7 has zero ohm jumpers for the input switches instead of the resistors.
My driver board has the resistors.

System 7 doesn't use the driver board for sound
