Has anyone out there with a standard Pinball Brothers Alien machine, installed the Heighway beacon toppers?
I have the Beacons, any ideas on where they could be wired to to function?

I also have beacons, electronic engineering, programming skills and the will to make it happen What I don't have is the energy to aimlessly probe around and find a suitable trigger. Would like the beacons to only trigger during entering missions/multiballs/ball save etc. For this to happen I guess we need a dedicated spare pin triggered by the game software, which we don't have (as far as I know). Any ideas is very welcome. My intent is to provide all information as BY-CC. The board designed by brado426 here: https://pinside.com/pinball/forum/topic/pinball-brothers-alien-remake-owners-club/page/75#post-6577124 is a very good start. My idea was to extend this with additional FETs and a small microcontroller, such as a ATTiny84 or some Arduino type board for additional creative freedom.
