I have done my own Stroke of Luck light mod to light up the kick out scoop. I have run into a problem trying to wire up the lamp. It works fine by wiring it straight to ONE of the light sources. For example when I only hook it up to the stroke of luck light my scoop lamp is lit when stroke of luck is activated. What I really want is that it lights up when also the other lights get activated (extra ball, martian attack and rule the universe).
I have build a harness and hooked it up to the other light sources but it will not work that way. As you can see I am not an electronics wizard and my simplistic approach needs to be improved upon.

Any help is much appreciated.strobe of luck.jpg

It's really not that simple. You would need some type of interface board and the two products I'm aware of have been discontinued.

Adding four bulbs (one for each controlled lamp) is probably the easiest and simplest solution (other than physical limitations).

What if I put diodes in line from each light source to prevent cross over? I will not give up that fast lol!

I think separate bulbs for each is probably the easiest as well. I think in parallel with the other bulbs the diode would likely drop too much voltage. You could try that with just one light in parallel with a diode inline and see what you have. If it is bright enough you could run them all that way with diode separation. Maybe if both bulbs are LED's.
