    Old Capcom Pinball Zip Passwords
    There were 2 old Capcom pinball zip passwords. The first one "PinbalLGamERomS" (do not use the quotes) was for regular software. For redemption pinballs use "RedemptioNPinbalLGamERomS" as the password. Redemption zip files usually had the letter "R" as the last letter of the file name. (i.e. ABV1_5R.ZIP)

    For a Fee, there are places that supply & program EPROM's.

    Instructions for EPROMS
    Dear recipient,

    Warning:
      These files are available "as is". Although these files are the property of Capcom Coin-op it is up to you, the recipient, to first determine if pinball and/or pinball redemption is legal in your area. Assuming that operating or owning these ROM's is legal in your area. It is highly recommended that you backup your existing ROM's (i.e. read them and write a file of its contents) BEFORE attempting to try these new ROM's.

    The filename structure:
      The first 3 letters of the file name is the socket number. If the 3rd letter is a `H' or `L' , its socket is on the CPU board. U28 and above are on the Sound Board. Please do not mix incompatible version EPROMs (i.e. only update the CPU board and a not update the sound board) This is a complete Set of EPROMs. Most of the time, a new version only changes SOME of the EPROMs. Any decent PROM programmer can test (sometimes referred to as verify) if a EPROM is the same as a file. IF it is the same, you do not have to re-program it. I recommend using a PROM programmer to see what EPROMs are different and which need to be re-programmed.

    Programming file format:
      Each file contains a complete binary image of each EPROM. An EPROM programmer should be able to handle this kind of "universal" file. I recommend that FIRST you read each of the old EPROMs and save them as a file for backup purposes. I have no real method to verify that these ROM files are the correct files, please backup your original FIRST! You can then erase the existing EPROM's and re-program them OR program new similar EPROMs and save the old EPROMs as backup. Below is a list of the EPROM's checksum and the bit size of the EPROM.
      For 32 bit checksums, use all 8 digits.
      For 16 bit checksums, use the last 4 digits.
      For 8 bit checksums, use the last 2 digits.

    Getting replacement EPROM's
      Let me first remind you that these are EPROM's. They can be erased and reused! However if you want to buy replacements you can always lift the label on the EPROM and copy its number. It would be something like "MBM27c080-12". Where "MBM" is the manufacturer, "27c080" is the size, power consumption, and pin layout. And the "-12" is the speed of the chip. Please match the speed of the chip (or be faster, usually a lower -number) Note: this is only an example, see the EPROM's in YOUR board for exact details! As for programming these EPROM's, I do not do it. Ask an friend who is an Engineer or programmer, ask an arcade owner, or ask in the newsgroup news:rec.games.pinball (there are people in here that program EPROM's, be sure to use the key word: EPROM).

    Generic EPROM numbers (Always get your correct number from the EPROM in your game!)
    • 27C080 / 27C801 (8Mbit chips)
    • 27C040 / 27C4001 (4Mbit chips)

    Free replacement Lamp Advice
    Please Note that Capcom Pinball's have an incandescent light bulb warming feature. While it is recommended to always use the recommended incandescent light bulbs for flashers, controled lamps, and G.I lamps. The lamp warming feature does not work well with LED's, since they react ALOT faster than incandescent lamps, thus they can show multiplexing flicker and the lamp warming pulses. You would need special LED lamps with circuits that hide all these features.
    Danger: Here is supposed to be an example of an LED that hides incandescent warming circuits and flicker.
    Capcom incandescent lamps are "#555 6.3V Wedge T 3/14 inch" Pinball Life: Ablaze Ghost Busters #555 Wedge Based Lamp
    Capcom incandescent Flashers are "#906 13V Wedge T-5" (did not find any)
    There are other LED's that hide incandescent warming circuits and/or flicker for other manufacturers too.
    Anti-flicker: Pinballcenter: Noflix® example
    Anti-flicker: Pinballcenter: Noflix® Categories
    Anti-Flicker/warming: Pinball Life: Ablaze Ghost Busters #44/#47 Bayonet Based Lamp

    Both companies also supply just regular LED's that plug into all kinds of sockets, if you do not mind the warming / flicker. (they also supply incandescent lamps too, along with lots of other standard light bulb manufacturers/stores)
    Discussion: Capcom pinball led lamp support project
    Not-Recommended example that flickers: CoinTaker LED Flash Lamps
    Danger: see example flickering: Flicker side effect from lamp warming software
