Quoted from herg:

The family's napping, so I had a little more time to work on the blinkers. I have a solution, but it's no cakewalk. I disassembled some LEDs and added capacitors to the inside. Since there was a bridge inside of them, I didn't need the diode any longer, just the capacitor. They're the ones from Comet, so I'm not sure about others.
These are bayonet blinkers, so they're more work than the wedge would be.
1. Desolder the bottom contact.

2. Break loose the glue holding the metal base on the bottom and remove it.

3. Break loose the glue holding the white plastic ring from the small PCB and remove it.

4. This is a 1uF surface mount ceramic capacitor in an 0805 package. It is just the right width to be able to reach the DC output pins of the bridge.

5. Solder it in place.

6. Reassemble everything, using glue to secure everything again. Sorry, no pictures of this step.
I modified six of them and put them in my TZ with GI OCD. I can now drop the brightness down to 1% and the blinkers still blink.
As you can see, however, it's a bunch of tedious work.

Did this with my cointaker flashers, so far so good

Quoted from monkeyboypaul:

Hello,
Can anyone with Ingo's clock board *and* a GI OCD board in their Twilight Zone help please?
I've finally got my TZ clock connected again after 2yrs (!) of restoring this machine and I'm running a GI dim 0-8 test but the stock white clock LEDs are not dimming as i was expecting them to.
I know there's a brightness dial on the clockboard, but haven't investigated this yet... it's the final v1.9 Clock board.
GI OCD board is set to dim the clock GI string, and all other playfield/backbox GI dims nicely with the Comet 2SMDs.
Thanks.

Mentioned before, it works good on my machine. (Though, the range of brightness isn't as great on the clock board as the GI string.

Greetings everyone, hope everyone is doing great and staying safe.

New to the OCD boards, got an LED AND GI ordered and haven’t gone through this entire thread yet so apologies if this is already documented somewhere, but if the Dropbox is still open that houses the config\profiles, could someone add me?

I sent a message to Matt but see by his activity that he hasn’t been here since April so I figured I’d ask since everybody added should be an admin?

Just send me a message and I’ll provide my Dropbox email.

Thanks

The profiles give names to the settings, they do not adjust the game, but they are really spot on in general without any adjustments needed.

However there are a couple adjustments to the settings one can make on the OCD board, something like enabling all 5 strings.

here are the profiles:

Thanks so much, I really appreciate the help and the feedback in my other thread. All that’s left is placing my order at Comet oh yeah and finishing my restore LOL
