Today I removed old and fitted new line filter, varistor and thermistor from Jim. Hurricane no longer instantly trips the house when plugged in!

I feel like a wizard...

No pics of that sadly, but the ones from Jim are slightly smaller than the one in the machine, so needs a hole drilled and tapped.

Next is Afterglow board for lamps. I notice my GI flickers like crazy, I hadn't noticed this before. Either working on BOP with incandesant and now Afterglow has made me a light snob, or something's changed!

You could just turn the gi power saver off in the menu and that should stop the flickering

The patch reworks the lamp matrix driver to work around an issue with ASIC and modifies the timing with how lamp matrix is controlled. Therefore it only applies to controlled lamps, not GI.
gotcha. Thats why its my GI flickering and the lamsp are all good :thumbs:

Today I worked on BSD ;

Since reassembly the coffin lift ramp was fowling on the metal support stopping it from dropping, this resulted in having to strip most of the coffin down again damn, pays to try mechs before full reassembly.

Today I had a go at creating my own Bally score display. I designed a control board a while ago and just got around to hooking up a 4 digit 7 segment display I had lying around. it works!

The next step is to design the circuit board for the 6 or 7 digit led displays. I plan to make these in orange, red, white and maybe other colours.

Only slight issue is I cannot find anywhere in the world 7 segment displays with a comma instead of a full stop, at a reasonable price.
My search continues !!!!

Nice work Al, @lukewells used to make some, I bought a 2 colour display off him for my old Vector playfield. Pretty sure his had the same full stop problem. He seems to be mia these days so more options always good.

Finished off the drop target replacements on fireball II. Doing one bank of drop targets is bad enough but 3 sets is a marathon. Hopefully though these will last a good 40 years like the last lot. 😂😂

Very nice! 🙂

I love my FB2, it must be the game with the smallest gap between the pop bumpers!
