  • 48-1 question

    Ever since I turned free play on, the game demo's won't play by themselves when idling on the menu screen.. is there dip sw setting I can change in the setup menu?

    check your switches are all open by default, some switches have dual pole on them and if wired wrong may cause your problem.
    The 48in1 should still go through the demos on free play until 1P or 2P are pressed at which time it stay on the page until you select a game.
    if you can select a game with the joystick without touching the P1 or P2 this will proove the theory. If you can still start the games this is purly because when the button is pressed and then released it still registers a switch motion but the wrong way round.

          I take it your actually getting hi scores and not just any old score??
          Anyway dip 3 needs to be fully on for that feature to work.

            Yes dip 3 is on. I played frogger and space invaders and it saved high score.. but "Juno First" and some other games aren't..

                Is there a pattern between if you exit a game before powering off?
                ie, exit game, then power off, or power off while in a game? Also perhaps delays between exiting and powering off? perhaps it needs a certain amount of time to write the changes to flash. IT would most certainly need to exit the game before power off, mame doesn't write the highscore.dat file until it exits, i don't think ..

                (i know this isn't strictly mame we're talking about, but it is no doubt based on the mame source code)

                    Well, now i've got mine up and running, ive done those tests, and no luck... seems to be games that let you enter your initials do not save .. DIP3 is registering as set in diagnostic mode also.. I haven't yet actually see any game save yet, but I don't think i've played much of frogger and the older "score only" ones..
