Re: I got bored with lockdown, so being a retired programmer......

I have no idea why, but the file had been deleted! I have restored it!

If it disappears again do let me know people.

Re: I got bored with lockdown, so being a retired programmer......

When I got my Allwin, which is in the style of a Fivewin, I wanted to know how it was performing. So I wrote a simple program, called Fivewin Analyser, which allowed me to record which holes the ball hit (by clicking on the headers of a table) and automatically keep track of the totals, percentages,...

Re: I got bored with lockdown, so being a retired programmer......

That's weird, 5 people used it successfully and I've changed nothing, but yeah it is definitely broken!

I'll check it after lunch, which has just arrived.

I got bored with lockdown, so being a retired programmer......

Hi guys, been a while, other things have been occupying me. But I got bored with lock down and had run out of PC projects. I'd been down loading some fruit machine emulations from those nice people at fruit-emu, just to see if my prejudices against modern machines had foundation. They were! That got...

Re: Vague memories needing clarity

Those numbered reels, does anybody know if they are done using a known font, or are they just proprietary artwork? Looking at the fonts on my PC I can't find anything close.

Re: Vague memories needing clarity

So yeah, having thought about it and looked at many pretty pictures, I'm sure you're right and I was thinking about a Beromat machine. And I'm pretty sure now that the machine is probably one with numbers 1 to 6 on the reels. Sadly many of the photos are a bit blurry in the pay table area. Does anyb...

Re: Info wanted to improve an Autofruit emulation

Sorry, another assumption, that UK game machines enthusiasts are in the UK! The easiest way to explain it is to go back a few decades when the UK education system was quite simple. At age 16, the then and current minimum school leaving age, you sat exams in several subjects which, if you passed, wer...

Re: Info wanted to improve an Autofruit emulation

That sounds too much like hard work for something that started out as just curiosity! You'd better leave it, unless you're one of those people who can't. I'm a bit like that, but not totally! Yes school was a long time ago, so I mistakenly thought casually mentioning modular arithmetic would be unde...

Re: Info wanted to improve an Autofruit emulation

Nope! In my emulation I am using the real no bet list for display and my own (fairer) payout list. In my analysis tool I am using the real payout list on the videos of real machines. So I am making use of all the information, but not in the same program! So far I can find sequences of 6 symbols with...
