Mike,

the proposal from christian is correct, but look for the voltage. The direct connection to the Resurrcetion is 5V. The Voltage via the board should be 9V.

Lastly the answer to Christian's question. I plug the power supply into the Update Circuit Board because plugging it into the side of the Modular Board seemed to cause a fault. For some reason it stopped working. Since then I haven't risked a repeat, but it was probably some coincidental weakness in the Modular, rather than Resurrection causing a problem. Should I try the Munchen's own power input?

Mike,

if your Munich board works with other modules from the side power input you should try it with the RR too.
At least it will do no harm, but I am confident that it will work.
Otherwise just fly to Q-Town an kick me hard >:(

Very nice movie Ismenio.

Changing the subject I found out the name of the gambit Fruit and Genius played. Not that obscure really. It is called the Benko Gambit Accepted. I think I'll give it a try.

Keep'em coming Mike! Beautiful pictures!

Though I like any chess computer, plastic, wood or whatever, I have to admit that there's something about wood!!

Mike,

I saw on your photos that you plug in the power supply directly in the modules (Bavaria and RR). Why don't you use the side entrance?

Hi All

The Mephisto Bavaria board I bought from Karsten Bauermeister arrived yesterday. It is in absolute mint condition.

Losing no time I slotted the Genius 68030 London modules into the Bavaria and set it to play against Resurrection Fruit 2005, now at home in a Munchen board. So, a battle of Mephisto giants and a chance to gaze on lots of wood. The game score is over on the Resurrection thread.

Here are a few photos. Nowhere near Martin's quality but the wife did get a new digital camera for Christmas  so I am hoping for better things when I get my hands on it.





There is very little difference between a Bavaria and a Munchen, it seems, apart from the auto piece recognition. The Bavaria is slightly thicker, possibly to accommodate the extra electronics? Here is the Bavaria.



The chess position is a game the machines were playing as I made sure everything was set up properly. A gambit I hadn't seen before with white getting a pawn to a7 inside about 14 or 15 moves. Genius followed book for about 6 moves and Fruit for about 10. I wasn't taking much notice of the chess at the time. Does anyone know the name of this opening please?


Just for good measure here is more wood, a Mephisto  ESB II, which is even bigger than the other two is the machine on the left.



Is that enough wood for now?

All the best
Mike
