===================================
This information is derived from romset "pkrno_l1" and may contain errors.

Using the "white flipper roms" this game is similar to other WMS games of that
time (Disco Fever. Phoenix etc.)

Remarkable is the fact that Pokerino allows up to three extraballs per ball.

Location of rebound switches are guessed based on playfield layout assuming
switches of the same column are close to each other. This applies to left/right
jack drop targets, kickers and outlanes too.

*1) Switch 43 only produces a slam tilt sound. It might be a second switch mounted to the slam tilt device in the cabinet. The switch doesn't work in Game Over.
*2) Switch 44 produces just a sound when not in Game Over. The nature of this sound suggests it might have been (planned to be) used for the King Chamber loop.

*1) Format indicates if the data dips are to be set in BCD or binary format
(e.g. 99 binary is &H63=_XX___XX while 99 BCD is &H99=X__XX__X)
Binary format values are usually not displayed correctly in test 04

*3) TENS lamp is never on memory, QUEENS lamp is not on memory in 5-balls setup.
Bonus multiplier is on memory until 5x is collected,
Up to three extraballs can be scored with a single ball when enabled:
one for reaching Pokerino R plus two when completing all five card groups.
*4) Pokerino K and E are always tied together
*5) For autocycle mode press Advance after dip switches have been entered
*6) After restore defaults the game will enter test 04 on next boot up.


=============
S o u n d
=============
Pokerino uses the generic sound rom that is found on all of the first WMS SS games
before Gorgar.
Sound dip 2 toggles selects between chime-like and synthesized sounds, sound dip 1
is ignored.
Pressing Soundtest sends the sound rom into an infinite test loop independent of the
game rom. To go back to normal operation the game has to be rebooted.
