CPU/Sound Board for late model Stern pinball machines with White Star system boards.
** Game ROMS not included.**
Official Stern White Star CPU Circuit Board. NEW condition, direct from Stern.
Part number: 520-5300-00.
Backwards compatible with all * Sega games.
Base Unit: Comes as it does from Stern: 1 – blank U210 and 1 blank U7 eproms, battery holder including 3 AA cells.
Plug and Play.
Lord of the Rings LE requires a specific U213 to enable the shaker motor.
Sharkey’s Shootout: requires Gold Dot at U213 and 32k x 8 RAM at U212, change JP1 to 32k
PLEASE NOTE: There are four (confirmed) games that the Atmel Chipset does not support completely: South Park, * Starship Troopers, Space Jam and Roller Coaster Tycoon.
The cpu will run the game software but some of the sounds will not be correct or play at all.
These four games will require the BSMT2000 sound chipset 520-5136-00 cpu which is obsolete and very rare.
*Starship Troopers: it has been reported that Starship Troopers is least affected. The 520-5300 will run the game with some sounds missing but it’s not noticeable during game play.
Note: Make sure your Display Rom (Rom 0) has the latest version or the display will not work.
Most of these CPUs are being replaced because the batteries have died and leaked corrosive fluid which has ruined this expensive CPU. Games as new as Ripley’s Believe it or Not and Lord of the Rings have been affected. If you own a Stern or Sega game please check your cpu’s batteries now.
