    I'm not sure why it's doing this or how to stop it. Does anyone know why this could be happening? It has a sound card. Stern says no way to turn down brightness of lights but never answered to this effect.

    Someone with a pro sent me a video and it doesn't do it when they played for a few mins. It starts doing it a little bit into a game. Any help is greatly appreaciated.

    It's is in sync with the lights turning on/off. As far as I know it's part of the gameplay (Megatron) and I never looked to see if there is a menu adjustment for it. Our Combo Le does it also.

    As far as turning down brightness of bulbs, use frosted dome leds not the clear dome. You'll notice it dims it down a bit.

    Yeah no code to dim, I will try putting domes on it to diffuse that intense in your face bright light like on megatron lol. It seems it starts this when you raise the OP rams is raised.

    George Gomez made mention of this "feature" in his presentation of the game at one of the shows around it's release. It is meant to do what you're seeing as an homage to the DE days when the GI would blink when MB was ready.

    so just do it when MB is ready then lol seems like it does it ALL the fucking time lol. and how about adding a setting to disable lol. TBH machines these days with all the cpu they have should have WAY more settings just saying lol

    Supposedly, it only does that when multiball is ready. AKA 1 shot away. Now, if you suck and never start that multiball, it may seem like it is happening all the time lol.

    LOl fair point, I actually get the MB often just never connected the two. BUT it persists though the megatron MB too I think (if the prime one was ready)

    Now that I’m home from league and can see this video on YouTube instead of how it came through all pixelated on my phone, It’s doing exactly what it’s supposed to do. You’re playing the Autobots side, pretty sure it does this style music for Megatron and when you play the Decepticon side and raise optimus’s ramp it’ll do the same effect but to different music. It doesn’t do it at random it does it from hitting optimus or Megatron a number of times depending on the game you selected, telling you that you’re headed towards multiball. I see the responses the other guys gave line right up with my explanations and suggestions I texted before this thread went up.

    As for the video from a Pro model, I’m fairly certain this effect happens the same way, whoever sent it to you should lock a Megatron ball and raise Optimus’s ramp then record.

    Best thing to do is get frosted 1SMD LEDs to tone the brightness down. Go to the comet website I linked in the club thread, comet’s got great LEDs. You got a cream puff machine, please be careful if you are gonna try altering things electronically.

    Just disconnect the gi relay and connect the gi wires in the plug is the quick and dirty way to stop the flashing.

    I figured it was a default setting, just annoying is all. What do you mean by cream puff? lol. I was an electronics tech in the Navy so I have some electrical experience and can read schematics. But I just do not know what parts control what on this yet.

    It’s perfect, a beauty, a treat of a game.

    I believe there is a setting in the software to disable that lighting effect. I don't have a TF, so I can't go through and look. Check every adjustment carefully and see if one makes sense as being that effect.
