    Guess what - its me again! :D

    Having sorted my previous problem out - i've been looking at THG and seeing
    how the multiplier is unlocked - is this the same method for the XP1600+?

    Also - a friend of mine just got a 900 t-bird second hand to upgrade his old
    machine - can i just connect the bridges the same way? or is there a trick
    to this....cheers :)

    The 900 can be unlocked with a pencil closing all the L1 Bridges

    The 1600+ can also be unlocked but requires you fill the gap from the lazer
    with crazy glue then join the L1's with conductive material.

    I'm going to try the L1 Bridge trick as described on THG - if it goes tits
    up, not biggie - XP1800's are only £40...
