Summary 01988: pleiads, pleiadce: Melody sound is missing in Pleiads
Description I found this Youtube video (Pleiads (Centuri)):


And it plays a little melody in the attract mode :)


Found a Pleiads (Tehkan) video. It plays the same melody like the (Centuri) version.


According to Mike McBike (http://www.wolfgangrobel.de/arcadereps5/pleiades.htm) it uses the Epson Melody Generator "7910E".

Gyrovision (MAME Chat):
Yes there is/was. Not sure when the shoot sound vanished.
Pleiads sounds are completely wrong in MAME and always have been. Custom sound hardware like Phoenix. You can hear what the real game sounded like in this attached mp3 courtesy of Dan Hower.

You can here the melody if you change Pleiads to use
the Phoenix machine from

GAME( 1981, pleiads, 0, pleiads,...
to
GAME( 1981, pleiads, 0, phoenix,...

and set the 'Demo Sound' dipswitch to 'OFF'.

as about 16 to 18 years ago, I saw this game, with another background music, very different, possibly a bootleg not emulated.

I think it should report more about this game, clone called "Capitol", is the nearest to the sound that was in that video.

Question:
I can't reset Pleiads with key 'F3' since MAME 0.125u2. Is this correct?

We only have a specific variation of the sound board emulated. You can perfectly see that MAME emulates the Pleaids sound AS IS when compared to this footage of a real cabinet.

Note:
This is based in "39 in 1 mame bootleg" (emulated)
Only checks the start (for 1 second before the start the game)

The bgm can be added, in a old message looks like a "partial fix" (similar to Phoenix), both use the same

yeah, you can't compare a 39-in-1 with real PCB, it's just another (old, buggy) emulator, supposedly based on early versions of MAME, or at least CPU cores etc. from early versions of MAME.
