We are a small developer consisting of a virtual staff of programmers, 2D/3D artists and sound engineers providing 3rd party product design and development for engineering projects and coin-operated amusement devices.

 

Projects:

 

Bio-Chem Monitor/Control System

 

A Bio-Chemical Monitoring system designed for a University project. It uses a PIC 18F6723 on each monitor board which has five Analog BNC probe inputs and one digital probe input. Each of these boards monitors one zone. It utilizes two networks, where the primary links each of the monitor cards together into individual zones, to a service running on a Windows Computer. The secondary network links each card to additional sensors and controllers with the individual zone. Up to 240 zones can be networked and each card acts as a proxy within that zone. They can also be used as a standalone monitor / controller.

 

Each board has a graphical 128x64 Monochrome LCD for status monitoring at the local station. Each zone board can be configured manually using the onboard five switches or remotely from a GUI connected via the RS-485 Full Duplex Host Network. 4x64K byte i2c Serial EEPROM data storage. LED status indicators. ESD input protection on the inputs. Has a 3.3v onboard switching power supply. Calibration feature for using probes such as: {NH (Ammonia), Ca (Calcium), ORB (Oxidation Reduction Potential), Mg (Magnesium), NO3 (Nitrate), NaCl (Salinity), pH (Alkalinity), Moisture, Temperature and other probes}.

 

 

 

 

3D Slot Machine - “Bingo”

 

Amusement Bingo game developed for Xplosive Enterprises, Inc. There are two versions. The redemption and Vegas versions. Attached are modified scenes from both with the differences made apparent! In the licensed version a signature neon on the back glitter wall and a 3D articulated talking avatar in the right corner under the spotlight! As well stage scene with higher quality animations.

 

Pentium IV version uses XP, OpenGL, Direct Sound stereo.

Gaming Cabinet Bezel

 

 

We designed a new gaming computer specially designed and built for this and our future arcade games. Much smaller then any micro-ATX case, 480 Watt power supply, and runs high end 3D graphics cards!

Casino Area Progressive

 

A Casino Area Progressive (CAP) system custom designed for a Casino Manufacturing company, which supports one to four progressives. Uses a custom designed PIC 18F6520 based CapNode that is installed in each Electronics Gaming Machine. They use a proprietary network that links them all to a CapHost, which is a Serivce running on a Windows Computer. The CapHost communicates with a CapMeter, which displays the active progressives. A CapViewer is the GUI used to access the Host and configure the system. Another application the CapTool is used for testing individual nodes. There are two models of the CapNode. One is a Poker 8-Line Bus extender for easier installation, and the other is a wired version. Up to 240 nodes can be networked and each node has a configured detection type to best detect the status of game play for the gaming board running in the cabinet.

 

A GUI is used to configure as well as monitor the ongoing progressive game that is selected on each of the four progressive channels. Coin In, Coin Out, Game Win, Game Play are all tracked and based upon the configuration settings a percentage of each coin in is used towards the building of the progressive jackpot. Payout is based upon those configurations as well as the winner.
