    In case WPC95 owners are not aware (I have 2, so I am very concerned about the A/V board issue): you can buy a PinSound board, a special PinSound harness and a standard WPC89/WPC-S DMD board, and you're back in business with a WPC95 game. This just returns the A/V configuration to the separate boards it probably should have remained all along.

    But - it's not original, so there's that

    #3 3 years ago

    There are those that will buy these for the fact that they can fail and not be able to be repaired due to no replacement parts available. These boards will be come collector's items (if they haven't already). I made sure I had a spare and at some point I may pick up another one.

    I did the same.

    Here is another Idea I have been entertaining. Just install Pinsound boards in my games take out the AV boards and just keep and store them. Then you will always have a working original board for each game. All my games right now have the factory installed boards. That way nothing will ever happen to the originals.

    Holy crap! Your entire collection is WPC95. I think in your case your plan makes sense.

    #7 3 years ago

    Yep, all six of them. The only one that is exempt is Cactus Canyon. Since it has Continued, it uses a PC and Lepy amp. I still have all the original boards for that one also. I really like the Rottendog boards for WPC95 too. They did a nice job over there at Rottendog remaking these. Very easy to work on, traces are strong, nice boards! Their remake of the WAV95 board is nice also and in some cases better than originals. They are also in high demand because they are no longer built.

    In case anyone didn't notice, the price is OBO. thanks,

    #9 3 years ago

    I still don't understand why they can't make these parts, if made before why not now?

    #10 3 years ago

    you can i have all the parts and blank boards

    #11 3 years ago
    Quoted from Ballypinball:

    ??? I would like 2 please.

    #12 3 years ago

    Didn't Rottendog attempt these reproduction boards at one time?

    #13 3 years ago
    Quoted from chad:

    They did, I have one. They work fine. But the scarcity of the ASIC chip is an issue for those reproduction boards too, and Rottendog doesn’t make them any more anyway

    I would gladly swap the Rottendog for an original board

    #14 3 years ago

    You would think that there would be something useable.

    Quoted from whthrs166:

    I've considered this too but you'd have a stack of A/V boards that you'd never want to use again just like the stack of plasma DMDs you have collecting dust that you will never reinstall again.

    #16 3 years ago

    A few years ago, I was looking for a new a/v board for my NGG. I can't believed I passed on a NOS board for $300 figuring I could find a better deal.
    Luckily mine was repairable, but it still cost me just as much.

    #17 3 years ago

    This board is for the best era of pins made imo, someone should have the knowledge to remake them.

    #18 3 years ago

    Yes with all the super smart electronics folks here. Look at all the other boards reproduced.

    #19 3 years ago
    Quoted from pinbum:

    This board is for the best era of pins made imo, someone should have the knowledge to remake them.

    The problem isn't that the board can't be remanufactured - it's that there is a specific chip used in the board (and required by the design) that is *no longer available*. As in, they don't have them laying around somewhere, and no factory anywhere on the planet makes them. So that means the board would have to be completely redesigned, which would be a huge time and $$ investment. With the introduction of Pinsound's solution, this is basically no longer required. DMD boards are still made, I guess because there are way more games which use them, and are manufactured with more common parts, so no supply issue.

    #20 3 years ago

    i have thousands of the chips that you say no longer are made and the code to make more
    no problem at all

    Can you post pics of these chips?

    Wow, awesome! What is the reason you're not making these boards and selling them at say $400 each?

    #23 3 years ago

    Making very few keeps the price of new ones high.

    #24 3 years ago

    Im too lazy

    started making a few

    What’s the shelf life on ASICS

    #27 3 years ago

    Awesome! Looks like those have been sitting a while great to see!!

    #28 3 years ago

    No shelf life and these were made in 2010

    yes dust is extra

    #29 3 years ago
    Quoted from Ballypinball:

    yes dust is extra

    Well go on, how much are the chips and pcbs and why is shipping $55?

    No idea where you got shipping cost

    #31 3 years ago
    Quoted from Ballypinball:

    Thats just a made up number, every time I try and order from sparepartsau, shipping is really random and unusually high for seemingly small items.

    I'm curious. Are these just FPGA then? If so, do you own a licensed copy of the programming?

    #34 3 years ago
    Quoted from Turtle:

    No they are a custom asic and yes at the time they were made I did.

    Both these and the CPU asic were both Made

    For those that weren't around at the time... back before there was PPS... There was Illinois Pinball and Wayne in Australia. When Ballypinball had secured a license for WMS/BLY parts... he was going to remake Medival Madness... and had gotten pretty far in the sourcing parts needed for the project.

    Was curious why these weren't part of the deal when you closed out to Rick? I mean.. I know you've kept your parts/distributor stuff... but the stuff that was more about producing games... they didn't want?

    Rick has some on his website in fact I bought $20,000 of asic chips back from rick

    So what part on the AV is unobtanium? Looks like the williams chip is available to buy, the ADSP chip is available to buy.
