    I have a speech board that the owner claims is for Space Shuttle. None of the call outs that work match what the manual says. I cannot find a cross reference for the chip numbers that are installed. Also, the manual says U4 should be populated and it is not, unless I am reading the chip locations incorrectly. Is there someplace that shows the OEM numbers for Williams games?

    Got an eprom burner? You can read them in and compare to space shuttle speech roms.

    These are Gorgar speech roms. Also the speech board is from a system6-7 game. Speechboards for system 9 had a slightly different design able to carry 2732 Eproms in stead of 2532's and also had a later revision of the Harris CVSD chip.

    But it will probably work with a new set of Space Shuttle speechroms programmed in 2532 Eproms…...


    5T4961 = Gorgar speech IC7
    5T4962 = Gorgar speech IC5
    5T4963 = Gorgar speech IC6

    Thanks maralb, I guess I am out of luck then, I don’t have any 2532 chips and I don’t plan on getting any.

    Well, I did find some 2532s, but my programmer won’t do these, I have a TL866. So, still out of luck.

    If desired...I do have a few of the system 9 speechboards in storage. But I can't reach them before next weekend. I am willing to ship a board to the USA (I am from Europe) but it won't be cheap I am afraid. Let me know if you would like me to search for them.

    Thanks maralb but that is not necessary, it was just for a spare, I’m sure we can find one laying around somewhere here.

    Do you have or know where a list of Williams ROM numbers and what games they are used in? I have found list for Bally and Stern but have not seen one for Williams games.

    As far as I know there isn't a list with speech rom numbers. These numbers are listed in the instruction booklets Williams included with the manuals. They can be found on ipdb.org. There is a list of soundrom numbers on pinwiki I believe. Williams can be quite confusing sometimes labeling many soundroms '12' and it can be a quest to find the correct soundroms and the belonging speech roms.

    Build the adapter, burn as 2732.

    Thanks slochar , I’ll give that a try and see how it works, I’m sure someone out there has made a pcb for this already. I have already programmed some 2732s for it so I might as well try them.
