This is an update of my release in 2005. Table was made at and will definitely look best at 1600x1200. Play at that resolution, if possible, to avoid potential slight reel misalignment (although it does look OK at other resolutions). Also if things look like a mess in windowed mode then go full screen!

Make sure you have the s3250u3 samples zip in your pinmame samples folder in order to hear the game sounds (get them at www.pinmame.com). Also, make sure the samples are enabled via the F1 menu.

I have included 4 nvram's, all of which contain the recommended settings for 3 ball and 5 ball play, and the dips are quite a bit different for 3 and 5 ball.
The reason there are 4 nvram's is because I made one 3 and 5 ball nvram for the original rom and also a set for the 7 digit rom.

I highly recommend you use one of these nvram's or else you just won't have the proper display and gameplay since the defaults are way off. Copy them to your "Pinmame/nvram" folder (you can have one of the 6 digit and one of the 7 digit nvrams in that same folder since they have different names).

Peter has made a customized dip switch menu that of course you can use anyhow (by pressing F6 in game). The 7 digit menu has an extra option I think for increasing high score past 6 digits (and that's the only difference), but I included it in this download for those who may want to implement it, although you certainly can use the 7 digit rom with the 6 digit menu and have no problem.

Also note that you must have the 7 digit rom in order to play with the 7 digit rom. Find it wherever you find all other roms!

Lastly, should you want to access the original display window (rather than the reels), just press the + (plus) button on the main part of your keyboard to bring it foward. Then to get rid of it again just click on the table (not the display window) to bring the table forward again and then press the - (minus) button.
The more basic instruction card image is included in the download (zip).
