Potential issue on my newly arrived AFMr LE upon first few plays tonite.
I am not seeing chase LEDs on the 6 mini saucers - the flashers all work fine. I played with glass off to see if the chase action was mode-based. I got deep into collecting the objectives, but no chasing LEDS. The large saucer works perfectly it seems.
Upon inspection under the playfield and in backbox, there were several connectors that appear to have been slightly dislodged/skewed, surely during transit. I reseated all the connectors I could see, but with no effect on the mini saucer LEDs.
I traced back the 3 wires from one of the mini-saucer LED PCBs back to a jumper PWB underside with six connections (J21 thru J26) - all six mini-saucers terminate here, but there are no additional connections at this PWB (i.e., no controller inputs). One of the mini saucers must be first in the chain, and the remainder attached in-common on this PWB. I did not make any attempts tonite to find the first-in-chain mini saucer to see if I could backtrack to its controller. I did not see J21 thru J26 in my first pass thru the schematics.
Any suggestions to chase this down?
The CGC System Menu > Display > Lighting > Mini Saucer = "OFF" I flipped the value to "INTERACTIVE" and all is good. yay!
As noted above, the six mini saucers are indeed independently controlled.
