Quoted from Rob77:

Hey Davey!
After ordering the full kit (Ufo, Sling post lights and backbox breath) i can‘t resist… please put me on the list for the sign also…
If i may get one and if the orders then could somehow be sent together that would be great!
Or maybe i can meet you in London? I‘m there at October 30 for NFL’s London Game Jaguars vs Broncos at Wembley Stadium

Thanks again! Can certainly combine shipping on those, prob easier for me than trying to get out to an NFL game !! (although I'm sure it would be awesome)

I have you down for 2 x Lolly UFO kits (one full, one backbox only) - send all three together?

What a beatiful mod! Technically this is overkill... i mean fully customizable LED effects via wifi configuration. You can create your own effects even if i understand it correctly. Sophisticated. Really really awesome. You can make this thing act however you want.

I also installed the GI dimming connection. stumblor is there a way to give the sign a minimum brightness even if GI is off? I would like the sign to reduce brightness according to GI dimming but not to go off completely.

I quickly tested around a little and i like the green color for powerup. But lets see, i like to see how the other colored sign inlays look installed.

The Neon sign typical flicker effect is just perfect, so i cannot think of any improvement making my own effects here. Really nice realistic effect.

With the included manual, installation was completely foolproof easy. All the cables are perfectly prepared for plug and play installation! Well done!

And it is not easy to capture this in all its beauty, because i am not a camera expert and somehow exposure / color is difficult to catch. However i'd like to share some impressions after my install.

Thanks for the awesome feedback Rob. Technical overkill is what I do best!

GI dimming - cool idea! Not too hard to implement either, so why not - I just published a new firmware (1.0.10) with that change in it. Enjoy!

Settings > Advanced Options > Gi Dimming Minimum

This new dimming value works 'additively' with the normal LED group brightness levels (ie they are combined), so you may also have to play around with those values a bit also before everything is in balance when dimmed.

I just installed the sign and it looks amazing. Better than any photo shows.

Please put me down for all other signs you are designing for this machine. So good.

#812 1 year ago

I wasn't sure at first...but I've decided I need one of these. Please add me to the 2nd run list.

Ahh I think it might be sorting them alphabetically rather than numerically (ie .10 less than .2) give me a sec will fix it.

Yep its working! And the update with GI Dimming minimum value is very cool. Set to 20 or so leads to a nice dim but visible light if GI goes off... perfect, thank you!

#818 1 year ago

Any difference between pro and premium sign?

#819 1 year ago
Quoted from kool1:

Only the cabling. The premium has a provision for the flasher bulb - the pro doesn't have a mechagodzilla flasher.

This mod fits right into my others - this machine is getting tricked out! Davey is the best.

Please when you catch up with these mods move next toward the Orig MM to work with the new MMR Topper. My dark topper is just sitting there .....

Stumblor is KING !!

**THIS*** I was just thinking about that the other day.... that you would be the perfect person to do the integration! Please make this happen!

#823 1 year ago

Hello can I get one?
I do believe I’ve ordered one but can’t remember
Thanks

**THIS*** I was just thinking about that the other day.... that you would be the perfect person to do the integration! Please make this happen!

I have an integration board ready to go (Pinpoint), which sits on the sound bus and triggers LED patterns based on sound events - a little video for those that haven't see it

A couple of people are going to use it for their own topper projects, but it would also be perfect for converting the King of Payne topper. I have a friend in London with an original MM just need to find some time to go around and write the event config. Hopefully soon!

Is anyone else getting a download error on the new firmware?

Quoted from qbass187:

I did trying to use my cell phone but switched to a computer and worked like a charm.

#829 1 year ago
Quoted from qbass187:

First thing (that is a bit of a 'gotcha') is to make sure the machine is on the service menu before you start, as the triggers can interfere with the download process.

Quoted from Pdxmonkey:

That's interesting - was that the entire web UI that failed to work on your phone, or just the update process?

I’ll try both/either of these methods and report back.
Thanks Davey & PDX!!

It was the download process it got to like 6% and didn’t go further. It was an iPhone for the record.

Make sure you open the coin door, go into the menu settings and then pull the over ride button out, then connect to the signs network. I think when the GI powers down the board loses its connection or gets wonky a bit.

#833 1 year ago

I have noticed tho since I updated to 1.0.10, the sign no longer dims with the GI's and if the sign had a mode activated i.e Kaiju battle, when the game is over the sign stays stuck in that mode and doesn't reset. Any thoughts?

Hmm.. not sure - I'll check it out - thanks for the feedback!

Mine got to around 25% on Android. I left it for about 10 minutes to be sure, then reconnected and it was updated. The update resets the wifi and disconnects during the process.

Interesting…I switched to computer and it went through no issue
