You can purchase the online version of the save kit that features the high score upload to the internet above for $15 in the drop down choices. You will receive a specific SK and PK Key that will unlock this feature and an online module that connects with a Cat5 or Cat6 cable. See the bottom of the User Guide for more details on DHCP and DNS settings needed.
The online module will allow you to display your own arcade score board and you can compete against other game players with our save kits globally, in your own country or just in your own game room!*
You can have multiple games with online capabilities on your network. We recommend using an access point in your game room. The access point can have a switch attached that can add up to 64 ports to upload scores. These switches can be purchsed separately at any major electronics store for under $30. Once you have your games online, you will wonder why you didn't do it sooner!
* You are not able to add the online module after the initial purchase as the socket and connectivity LED lights for it will not be populated.
I'm really surprised that there are kits that get "updated" still. I know Highscoresaves take care of their customers, but, I didn't think that they'd listen and make an existing kit even better!
I ordered a few more kits and inquired by email if I can get the new updated rom I saw on Facebook. They said if I ordered something, which they saw I did,they'd "throw it in the box" for free.
Couple days later, box arrived. I saw the 28 pin eproms in there, replaced on my old version kit, poof! Instant satisfaction!
Thanks again !!!!
Nice Kit with some cool options
If you are buying this kit for GORF like I did, the instructions can be a bit confusing because they were written for GORF/Wizard of Wor/Space Zap. The kit in the installation instruction illustrations do no match the kit you receive which can be confusing at first. Also you do not receive two 40-pin sockets that the instructions reference. This can also be confusing. Also the daughter card save kit fits in the original Z80 40-pin socket quite securely and fits into the card cage easily with it pre-installed on the CPU board. The instructions have you install the daughter card after first installing the CPU board with the empty Z80 socket. If you are careful and slowly slide the CPU board into the cage with the daughter card installed, you don't need to install the daughter card once the CPU board is inside the cage. Check out the enhanced game mode in setup!
Glad I purchased!
Just what I needed
Excellent kit and works as described!
Great kit for Gorf!
Very fast shipping and installation was pretty easy. Just followed the installation guide and BOOM! Awesome kit!
Really a great add on for my Gorf. Took my time and read the installation guide, not hard at all to get it going!
Great way to add free play and save my scores
Yesterday I saw your latest GORF HSS 3.0, it looks great. We have it posted on our GORF Facebook group, so I hope you see some sales. We have a few questions:
1. A few of us (me included) have the old GORF HSS kit, is there any way to purchase an upgrade kit or do we need to buy it again?
2. Is it still socketed in the Z80 or is it a satellite board?
3. Do you have any details about your rom & pattern board test? Does it show faults? Thanks again for your great work. I can't wait to play it!
- You can ask for the binary and burn it yourself on the W27c512 on the main daughter card of the kit. Please send a pic of your current kit, as there are some old ones out there that are not compatible with the upgrade.
- You can have a new eprom mailed to you in the USA for $12 total (Just ask in email)
- You can order anything in the shop and we will add to your package at no charge! (email us the order number quickly after you order)
2-> same pcb as version 2, straight on top of the socket of the z80 (no spacer needed)
3-> See below -
patternboard test copies bytes with different offsets from rom into the screen ram with the patternboard and compares the "result" with the cpu...what a good patternboard should copy if the copy is identical, it test "good"... no special mode tested though the static ramtest itself tests the ram from $d000-$dff0
The video ramtest tests the video-ram from $4000-$7fff and identifies the broken ram-chip on error (only one at a time)
what gorf group? i want to join ;)
Hope that helps!
