Japangameonline released 3 different AES versions(at least they say 3 different versions I bet they're all the same) US, Japan, and International. This is the US AES copy.

Just trying to be helpful. Like I said if you ever want to borrow this copy just let me know.

Yes I know and I am very thankful.

Some of the pictures however have no useful information in them apart from the first post. Is it possible to keep the pictures in that post but remove all the pictures from the other 2 newer posts?

[edit] thanks for removing the pictures.

I'm a little annoyed with myself because rockstarrunner hilighted that MS3 issue with softDIPs on AES and I fixed it once. Seems I broke it again when I reorganised some code to save space. The good news, its an east fix for the future.

Bumping this thread because I'm confused and can't find an answer.

I'm using Unibios 4.0 on a MV1-FSZ in a cabinet. Whenever I use the 161, I can't pop the menu up to select a game in Pick mix mode, the 1P Start button makes the Unibios in game menu pop up. This is difficult, as now I can't actually start games from player 1 side unless I wait out the timer.

How do I get the picknmix menu to pop up, and how do I make it so that I can start a game from 1Ps side?

How are you enabling Pick n mix? Hold start while powering up? Or select?

For me, what works is hold Select while powering up, then during a game, press and hold select until the game menu appears. You have to keep select held while moving around, let go to load the current selected game.

Unfortunately I don't have a Select button on the cab, only Player 1 Start and Player 2 start. I can try it out on the big red next weekend, but it doesn't seem to work well on the 1 slot due to the lack of select button

Could you try connecting a controller to the board? Or does it not have on-board controller ports?

You can also use player 1 start to enable PICKnMIX.

I thought start and select were two different Pick n Mix modes. I prefer the select button Pick n Mix more.

There are but he doesn't have a select button at the moment. Using the alternative selection method is better than nothing.

Hey guys!

I just got the Pick-n-Mix working on my MVS M1BBV and love it - great to have it run in the background. I do however have a problem that I can't wrap my head around. Once "Stakes Winner" is reached in the Pick n Mix I get an address error screen. It always happens at the same instant, when the attract mode shows the horse race track the first time. The game works fine when started regularly via the 161in1 menu, however. The errors only occur during Pick and Mix. Since I can't exclude the game from the list, I can't really use Pick and Mix at all, because it keeps crashing at that point in the attract. Any ideas what I could try? I already activated HW check - when I do that, the Adress Error screen changes into an Illegal Instruction error screen. Would love to hear your thoughts / ideas what I could try to do to fix it. I am good with a soldering iron but have no clue if there is something I could do with the card to fix this? Maybe I just was unlucky and got a cart with a bad Stakes Winner rom?

Hey guys! Thanks for the help. I actually opened up my cart - and it seems I got a brand new revision! It's certainly at least a V2 judging by the chips. However, now the bridge between the two pins is already in place. So this might be a V3? Sadly, no matter what I do, it always crashes at Stakes Winner 1 & 2. Happens on no other game. And only while using Pick n Mix. Really wierd... Happens on my 4 slot, 2 slot and 1 slot boards all-over (they all have Unibios 4.0 of course). They seem to also have adressed the audio issues - Audio sounds great right now. nero.jpg
