Quoted from Shaneus:
Are there any updates in software that aren't just profile additions? Haven't had to use this for a while on my RBION, wonder if there's any point in updating.
No, other than additional game data, profiles, etc., the PC software does not affect the performance of the board. The firmware on the board is not able to be updated short of replacing the chip (or using the ICSP header on some boards).
Quoted from Fifty:
herg, I recently noticed the FLIGHT INSURANCE insert on my F-14 ghosting on me. I'm using Comet 1 SMD LEDs. I can see it flickering while playing. It is very faint but definitely there. I don't recall it doing this before.
Every other LED seems to be functioning properly. This one seems to be the misfit. I don't know if it's been this way since the install or not. I only noticed it recently. What's the best way to troubleshoot this?
FLIGHT INSURANCE is on the lamp matrix, column 2, row 8, so it can be controlled by LED OCD. If you have found that it IS the lamp itself ghosting and not light leakage from another light source, here's some things to try.
1. Try to notice if it does it at the same time as some other action; a coil firing, a flasher, another lamps validly lighting.
2. Using the PC software, set the flight insurance lamp to a different profile, then set that profile to all zeros. At this point, the flight insurance lamp should stay off all the time. If not, you are either getting "true ghosting", or possibly crosstalk on the wires under the playfield.
3. Try going into manual mode in the PC software. This will turn off all the lamp matrix outputs, and it will eliminate the possibility of "true ghosting" because the adjacent lamps are not lighting.
If you can try those things and let me know the results, it would greatly narrow the possibilities.
