Congrats to Heighway and people who got in on this game. I've enjoyed it every show I got to play it at, but the theme just isn't for me. Wishing them continued success and look forward to seeing what comes after Alien.

Anyone know how to adjust the sensitivity of the switches/sensors? I have one sensor on Alien that is registering too frequently, and it is causing some issues. Was hoping someone with experience on FT may be able to help since there are only a handful of aliens out there at this point. Thanks. -Tommy

Quoted from luvthatapex2:

I would think you could email Heighway and they would be happy to help. No?

I'd like to say yes but have been emailing for 2 weeks with little to no help on this specific issues. Others they have just said they are aware of the problem and working on it but thats a whole other story.

Quoted from DerGoetz:

I was in contact with everyone there, tried everything they and I could think of.
I feel like I exhausted what they can do for me at this point.
Here is the deal: I flash the SD card and have a fresh 1.41
Game runs PERFECT. Tons of fun. Then at some point it craps out. And then this happens
ยป YouTube video
All reports, switches etc check out 100% fine.
It is software that gets dizzy.
It seems related to me opening the coin door while the machine is on. It always happened right after I opened the door, made adjustments (most likely volume) and then closed it. The software somehow took a hit every time after that.
I will re-install 1.41 again, NOT open the door while the machine is on from now on and report back to you guys.
And I will follow a friendly pinsider's advice and exchange the USB cables as there seems to be a known issue with a certain early batch of said cables.
It is a shame, as you can tell by the video I modded the crap out of mine, added 3 interactive color-changing LED towers at the slings and the wheelie bike, added center drain light, shooter lane light and bike, external volume control, lit flipper buttons, bikes exchanged and added on playfield, improved the broken wheelie mechanism, exchanged the back light from harsh white to red, exchanged rings and rubbers and and and. And replaced the speaker amp.
I have the LE version which has chrome hardware. Said hardware oxidized like you have never seen where the hands rest. Heighway were kind enough to send me a second set or armor and should I be able to fix software I will powder-coat to racing orange.

Any chance the added lighting is having an impact on the game somehow? Also have any chance it is the brand of SD card? I know that was an issue on some stern and spooky games at one point.

Quoted from BrianBannon:

Has anyone received any tech support recently from Heighway? I have tried to contact Helmut with no response now going on three days, nor any response from the general support email address. My game has an intermittent problem with the game freezing up requiring a reset. All of a sudden the game will just freeze, flippers die, the ball drains and then the game just sits there. After a reset I can play several games with no problem and then out of the blue the game freezes up again. I have reseated all cables and so far nothing.

Interlock switch?

Quoted from BrianBannon:

I will check it, thanks. I have already replaced the interlock switch once for a different reason. My biggest concern is that I can't get any help from Heighway, not even a response.

I've had similar issues with my Alien over the last few days, not sure whats going on.....actually looking back at my email I did communicate with Helmut yesterday, but before that it was 6 days between responses.

Quoted from e4mafia:

Having a problem with Left Orbit switch 2-12 is not registering. I removed the switch board from the playfield to manually test - inductor is OK, but when mounted, it does not pick up the ball. I tried adjusting the height as best as I can to get it as close as possible, but still no luck. Any ideas? Have you guys hit switch issues like this before? How did you fix?

Have an issue on my Alien of a switch registering too much and can't get any help from heighway pinball and he sensors are apparently proprietary and can't get them anywhere else.
