I finally have my Sharpshooter working, and I'm loving it. Everyone who's played it so far wants to keep playing again and again. Devilishly difficult, but so much fun!
I've only got a couple small issues left to work out, and thought I'd try here first: one pair of pop bumpers light up nice and bright, but the other pair is very dim. I've tried nearly everything i can think of, and I'm certain it's not a problem with the LDU. (I swapped pins 7 and 8 on connector J5 for the pop bumper lamps on the ldu and got the same results in lamp test, bright pair was still bright, dim pair was still dim)
I've re-pinned connectors, i replaced one of the 2 pop bumper lamp sockets, tried different bulbs, triple-checked for good solder joints. Nothing I've tried yet has made a smidge of difference so far. I noticed each pop bumper lamp socket has a big resistor that the blue/white wire goes to. Could the resistors be causing the problem? Does anyone know the value of them? I measured 6 ohms on each one. Not sure of wattage though, they are pretty beefy. Maybe 2 watts? I'm going to replace the other lamp socket tomorrow and see if that finally gets this corrected.
Anything else it might be?
