After doing some reading on these forums, I replaced missing, absent or snipped capacitors (.047uf / 100V / 10%) across all these switches
on my Evel Knievel:
- both sides slingshot switches
- three right side stand up targets switches
- center stand up target switch
- all three pop bumpers switches
I had read differing opinions whether these capacitors are required or desirable but I thought I would try and see the difference.
As a result, the game seems to be more responsive and faster in general. Now I am wondering is this just my imagination or why
doesn't everyone do this cheap quick mod to make their game faster and more responsive?
Secondly, am I doing any potential harm to the components in the long run if I use capacitors where they are not needed? I am not getting
any "phantom" switch triggering or other problems.
