Hi everyone, DJ Bez, here, I'm not a DJ and my name isn't Bez but I am a man with a mission. A very silly, frivolous mission, but a mission nonetheless, which is why I've registered here. Now, obviously, I am definitely a RD fan otherwise my mission wouldn't be much fun or make any real sense! Remember the Red Dwarf Fruit machine (a quick google will reveal quite literally one picture, on this site) from back in 2000? It would have been one of the very first machines from Red Gaming, part of Barcrest. It was out at one of the conferences, it looks like, only to my amazement I can't find any decent pictures. (As it happens I used to work for a different company, who I believe came up with the very first Red Dwarf fruit machine that didn't even make it past the approval of, I assume as this was a long while back, the BBC / Rob / Doug) Well, it never even made it to 'test sites' as far as I can see, let alone launch, which is a shame. And since then Barcrest like so many were bought up several times, Red Gaming (owned by Barcrest) are no more and the Ashton-under-Lyme factory has closed its doors. But, like the 64 million dollar man, we can rebuild (him?) And this isn't some pointless quest, years back someone leaked the code and we have it running on a 'shell' of a Barcrest MPU5 fruit machine. You can even play a simulation with all the original sounds (search for MFME 5.0). One of the fruit machine enthusiasts on a site I'm a member of has put the code back onto actual chips and has the game running, and working, on an actual cabinet... But what we really need is some decent pictures so we can recreate the artwork and the lamps. And then, we will have an actual, proper, Red Dwarf fruit machine! This isn't a technical problem, it's an artistic one, so if you have a few snaps of the machine, and they can't be any worse than the ones I've found, please get in touch!
