Overview

Overview
This document includes instructions for using the Alpha game platform (AGP), which is available in a
variety of cabinets including CineVision, M9000, S9000, V8700A, and VT-200. The 4 Alarm Bonus game
is used in this document to illustrate features of the AGP that apply to any installed game.
This document may describe procedures for equipment that may not be applicable to all cabinet
configurations, or that may require additional components. Each regulatory jurisdiction may have
controls, policies, and procedures that must be followed. You are responsible for understanding and

Setup

Power On and Boot Sequence


Switching power on executes a series of boot commands. Depending upon the game, a splash screen may
appear containing a counter and logo similar to the following example:

85%

Figure 1:Splash screen

When the counter reaches 100% the screen blanks for 30 to 60 seconds, then the splash screen reappears.
After approximately one minute, the game screen appears.

Chapter 2 Setup and Operation

The following is an example of a 4 Alarm Bonus game screen:

Figure 2: Game screen

NOTE: Depending upon the state of the door, an error message appears until a
denomination is set.

If the door is open, you may see Pending Status Denomination Not Set.

If the door is closed, you may see Call Attendant.

The errors are self-correcting once configuration parameters have been set and
saved.

RAM Clear
The term RAM Clear refers to erasing game information stored within the battery-backed non-volatile
random access memory (NVRAM) and the electronically erasable programmable read only memory
(EEPROM).
A RAM Clear is required for the following conditions:
If NVRAM or the EEPROM fail;
If the operating system or game CompactFlash is changed;
If the jurisdictional ID EEPROM is changed
When new or replacement hardware is added;
When a critical parameter such as the base denomination must change.

2-2 MK2-ALPAH-0006 [C] RAM Clear


Setup and Operation Chapter 2

NVRAM
NVRAM stores all critical game information. It is primary to game recovery after a power failure. Located
on the motherboard, it consists of a one megabyte static random access memory (SRAM) device powered
by a battery when line power is off or disconnected. The battery has sufficient capacity to retain the
contents of the SRAM devices for a minimum of one year when no power is applied.

EEPROM
The EEPROM is a 512 byte device located on the backplane. The EEPROM retains its information
indefinitely when power is removed. It is used to store critical game configuration parameters that are
changed infrequently, usually only one time after a RAM Clear.
The EEPROM is also used to store meter data. This feature allows the main electronic circuit board and
ETX processor card to be replaced in the field without losing the meter information crucial to proper
accounting.

RAM Clear Procedure

NOTE: A RAM Clear zeros the accounting meters. Record all accounting information
before executing a RAM Clear.
Copyright 2006 Bally Gaming, Inc. All Rights Reserved.

For a RAM Clear, perform the following steps:

STEP 1. Open the main door and ensure the system power is off.

STEP 2. Open the logic door and locate the operating system (OS) and game CompactFlash (CF). The
OS is the top socket, the game CF is the bottom.

STEP 3. Remove the OS and replace it with the RAM Clear CF. Remove the game CF for faster booting
of the RAM Clear CF.

NOTE: If Clear NVRAM is selected from the RAM Clear menu, information stored in the
EEPROM will be reloaded into the NVRAM. For accounting accuracy when
installing in a new installation, select Clear NVRAM and EEPROM.

EEPROM choices.

STEP 6. Turn the Attendant key to execute the selection. The RAM Clear status message will display to
indicate that the RAM Clear process is complete.

STEP 7. The RAM Clear successfully completes when the system displays

or
NVRAM Clear Successful. EEPROM Clear Successful. EEPROM Verify Successful.

STEP 8. With system power off, remove the RAM Clear CF. Reinstall the OS CF, and the Game CF.

Configuration after a RAM Clear


When power is switched on after a RAM Clear, depending upon the state of the door, an error message
appears until a base denomination is set. If the door is open, you may see Pending Status Denomination
Not Set. If the door is closed, you may see Call Attendant. The base denomination and other critical
parameters must be configured from the System Menus before placing the machine into service.

The bill accepter and coin acceptor are automatically disabled, as are incoming fund

that cause credits to exceed the value trigger an automatic payment from the payment
device (coin hopper, voucher, AFT, or Attendant).

Jackpot Limit The level for which a single win will cause the machine to display a jackpot win. Any win that
equals or exceeds the setting will cause the machine to enter a jackpot condition, requiring
attention from an Attendant to release the win lockup.

Multi-Denom The choices for Multi-Denom are Enable or Disable. If the feature is enabled, a variety of
wager denominations are available for the Player to choose.

Label Description

Hopper Limit The maximum value that the hopper dispenses in a single transaction. An amount greater
than the setting will, instead, cause a credit collect lockup condition requiring attention from
an Attendant.

Printer Limit The maximum value for a voucher dispensed by the machine. A voucher will not print for
values greater than the setting and, instead, cause a credit collect lockup condition requiring
attention from an Attendant.

Upper Jackpot The Upper Jackpot setting provides support for a feature provided by a Host communication
protocol that enables a Host system to release a jackpot without intervention by an
Attendant. The Upper Jackpot setting is the greatest value of credits that can accumulate in
the credit meter after a Host system releases a win lockup. The limit must be set equal to or
less than the Credit Limit, and equal to or greater than the Jackpot Limit.

Denom Configuration
Setting the Multi-Denom field to Enable provides multiple wager denomination choices for a Player.
Enabling the feature also activates the Denom Config icon to open the additional menus needed to

Label Description

Restricted Promotional Restricted Promotional Credits enables the accounting features of the machine to

Voucher Out voucher. If Restricted Promotional Voucher Out is not enabled, all promotional
credits must be wagered. If Restricted Promotional Credits is disabled, Restricted
Promotional Voucher Out defaults to disabled. The host protocol must also support
this feature.

Non Restricted Promotional Enables the machines accounting features to record the disposition of credits
Credits placed into the machine from an alternative source. The credits can be wagered or
cashed normally. This affects only the accounting meters.

Preferred Output Device The machine can print payment vouchers by an installed thermal printer, it can
dispense coins from a hopper, the machine can provide for payment by an
Attendant, or payment can be electronically transferred to an account.
If the machine has multiple payment devices installed, the Preferred Output Device
setting preferred by the Operator determines the machines payment sequence.

Residual Credit Collect Option The disposition of residual credits. The choices are Play, Handpay, Cancel; or a
combination of the three choices.
Play: Credits remaining in the machine that have a combined value less than the
value of a coin dispensed by the hopper can be resolved by wagering them on a
separate all-or-nothing game. A win equals one coin from the hopper; a loss
removes the credits from the machine.

Copyright 2006 Bally Gaming, Inc. All Rights Reserved.


Handpay: Residual credits can be removed from the machine by an Attendant.
Cancel: The machine can be returned to a revenue state by the Player, where the
residual credits can be wagered normally in an attempt to parlay the remaining
credits to a value exactly equal to a coin; or the credits can be abandoned and
remain in the machine, available for the next Player.
