Found the WIP bits... And checked the code still builds in VS2022.. So far so good.
Need to wire it up to a breadboard again to make sure its all good.. then I can look into connecting it to roadshow and see if it behaves correctly - and look into how it can be mounted etc.
Slight progress :)

Its alive !!

No to look into the power for the LED matrix next. I did actually connect a PSU to them - and then spent 2 hours wondering why it was just showing garbage on the panels.
Tried tying the earth from the PSU to the board and it made no difference. Disconnected the power altogether and off it went.
Still.. progress...

I should probably try connecting up the one I made to my roadshow... Still somewhat of a prototype currently.
I could certainly turn it into something I'm sure - but I didn't wanna be stepping on Magiskes toes.
dude that guy is MIA for 10 months, hook up the community!

I'm getting there.
I need to figure out how to hookup some octo couplers so I can have the Lock/Extra ball animation trigger correctly. (Software bits are easy - this electronic tomfoolery is not so).
Then I just need to mount it and connect it up...
