I'm finding that the window and left-hand buttons come up almost immediately, with a plain white background. After a minute, the grey speckled background will appear. Then from 1 to 3 minutes after that, the page may or may not appear. Often it only partially loads and the bottom half is missing, th...

No thanks. I've heard your singing, and I wouldn't recommend it to anybody. :mad:

Incidently, what would the difference in price be between a Mills and a Sega Hi-Top? I've not noticed much of a difference in the past. Probably £50 - £75 but nothing spectacular. I thought the machines were identical apart from the badge and stampings. And is it true what it says in the listing, ...

The coin slot itself can reject oversize coins, so you only need to reject coins which are under diameter and under thickness. To reject underdiameter coins, they are rolled down a runway which supports them only at the extreme top and bottom of the coin. The chute is tilted to one side, so that any...

I think you might need to get a new ROM. These modern coin acceptors work by monitoring the eddy currents generated by the coin as it travels down the chute. Samples of good coins are stored in an internal ROM and if the coin matches one of the samples the coin is recognised and accepted. You are un...

Like I said above - sell it and move up! Some machines are just not worth the bother. Get a classic. Suggest a Rol-A-Top or something. :) It's very common for the cheaper machines to be hacked about with and modified during their lifetime. Jackpots removed, escalators removed, payouts modified, gold...

Instead of all these pointless modifications, when don't you just sell it and buy something better? This isn't a desirable model anyway. You would probably be better off with a Mills or a Sega Hi-top, and it would cost you less than trying to patch this one up. Just have fun with it for what it is, ...
