Does anyone have a specific set of schems for this game, or do you just use a generic System 3 version? PDF anywheres?

Hmmm... I did at one point years ago. I'll try to go through some old emails.

I have hard copies of everything for the game. What all do you want?

Thanks for the responses. The IPDB manual is only about 11 pages with no schems at all. Not sure what else there is...it looks like I have some digital versions of stuff on the way (Thanks wd!). I may be good...

Hi Cody,

What info are you looking for? I have a good scan of the sys 3 MPU schematic on my home pc.

Pretty much everything that's missing from the IPDB. It has no schems at all, and only about 11 pages. I don't know what I'm missing...never needed a WC before, but that's the latest game in the reconditioning queue.

I don't like working on these boardsets either...and this one has suffered some ill-fated surgeries. I might have a spare in the attic somewhere...

You can use the firepower schematics for most 3-6 games and just reference the lamp / solenoid/ switch numbering lists. The sound board and MPU are just a bit different and you can find a generic schematic for them. There are good scans in one of the games posted on IPDB. I have them on my home PC too if you cant find it.

No fear, you can do Bally so you can do these. The wms boards from this era are really durable. They hold up to rework well unless it was really ham-fisted it.

OK, cool, I've got FP docs....maybe a couple others, I'll have to dig through my stuff. I feel confident I will have what I need when it comes to ordering caps, etc...

Funny, it has a sound board but the solenoid table in the IPDB manual has the chime coils listed.

Yeah, now that I think about it... it seems I had the same issue. I think I ended up finding a schematic for the game they released either right before or right after. Was close enough to get what I needed.

just to save you another hour of head vs wall .. a reminder there is no free play setting on sys3

#11 3 years ago

Ha! Yeah, this game has had a big honking push-button installed in a big hole in the coin door

Let me know if you need anything parts wise for the game. I have been hoarding parts for a while as this machine was my first and parts are somewhat scarce.

Thank you for the offer! I will keep that in mind.
