There are some other Game-A-Tron payout variety supported.


I thought this might same as yours, but it isn't when looking at photo of the pcb and yours has different names written on the labels.

roms name

poker.u00
poker-4-1.u08
black.u33
poker-g.u32
poker-r.u31

0.125u4: Improvements to Game-A-Tron [Roberto Fresca]: Changed description to 'Poker 4-1' as shown in the ROMs stickers.

---------




Closeup photos of the rom chips with labels and the corresponding white text printed on the pcb to identify locations on the pcb will also help out. This way when roms are dumped and files are named for each rom, the name on the label and location on pcb helps document where each rom resides on the pcb.

There is someone over in San Antonio area, but I am not sure if he would have a reader that is compatible with the ics on your pcb.



If and when the roms can be backed up, someone else might know who to contact about that part, then talk to Robbie because it might be that your machine might fit within the current existing GAT gambling driver file.


Here is Robbie's wip page.

If some more photos can be taken of the control panel buttons, and also the marquee and posted here, that will be of help because the control panels can be handled with an artwork layout imagery similar to what has been done with Golden Poker hardware games and some of the Cal Omega games too (see Robbie's page and all those images too where button layouts are handled via artwork setup).
