Title: Universal Arcade Games
Post by: channelmaniac on December 02, 2012, 12:44:01 PM
Model: Mr. Do's Castle
Symptom: Upgrade to NVRAM

Removed and reprogrammed ROMs 1 through 4 with the JROK code for adding the High Save Score feature. Removed 1 SRAM and replaced it with a socket and a customer supplied DS1220 NVRAM chip.

Board would not boot with the DS1220 in the socket. Installed a 9 pin 470 ohm resistor pack to tie the first 8 address lines high and tested successfully with the DS1220 in the socket.

Model: Cosmic Avenger
Symptom: Will not coin up

Boardset requires +5v on the coin inputs when idle and is detailed in the owner's manual wiring diagram. Either wire +5v straight to the switches or simply use a 1K ohm resistor on each coin switch input on the PC board to tie the inputs to +5v.
