Quoted from wolftownjeff:

Wondering when the new code will be released?
Glad they kept working on it!

Me too! When will this Beta become the Alpha!?

Has anyone had these issues before? I was streaming yesterday and about 23 min in, the API screen went out. Then, about 10 min later, the GI went out...

I was pretty far through the game with 7-8 stage modes complete. Hit the Vanishing Elephant and the screen went out.

Then, was in Seance and lost all three balls and the GI went out.

Here's a clip of that 10min period:

Quoted from rosh:

I'll try to take a look at the video later today, but as LTG said, based on description sound like a loose wire or something, but I'll see if I can tell more form the video. In the meantime I would still open a ticket.

Thanks for everyone's help!

Screen came back w/ reset; I was also doing Direct Video using AverMedia throughput from the main screen if that matters.

GI did not come back on restart. The PinStadiums had power b/c I could still communicate with them through the bluetooth app. But I turned off the game again, lifted the playfield, adjusted the PinStadiums and then the GI came back on restart. Maybe they caused a power issue?

I also bought the game used and don't believe I have the upgraded power supply.

vonpinball@gmail.com if you want to contact me directly for any reason.

Sorry, the AverMedia was running the Direct Video from the main screen no hiccups there, I just had a 920 cam focused on the API Screen.

Pinstadiums power off of the aux power (the 12v outlet), but are triggered by the GI. I guess that's why I was still able to see them on Bluetooth...

Oh my bad, I was using it as a splitter. This one:

I streamed Houdini for an hour the day prior with the same set-up and didn't have the issues.

Quoted from MMP:

Is the Houdini shaker still available? I may have missed it when looking. I've never been much of a shaker fan but it sounds like a good addition in this case. Is the Oktoberfest shaker compatible?

Looks to be available. I will second the great shaker integration with the trunk lid and elephant steps!
