I just finished cleaning and putting everything back together and now I am working out all the bugs and tweaking everything to my liking. With that being said, I've got a couple issues I'm still dealing with:
1) Switch 32 (Trough 1 Opto) is always registering as open (or closed, haha, either way, it treats it like a ball is always in the trough 1 spot)
I've been trying to troubleshoot but the issue doesn't seem to be on the cpu board, the rough opto boards or the 7 opto board). The only real negative is the credit dot, so I suppose I'll let that one slide for now.
2)Getting a ball hang up on the wire underneath "the machine" area that feeds the bronto/machine popper.
I don't really want to remove "the machine" if I don't have to. I'm thinking I may add a thin screw on the underside of the PF into the hole of one side of the wireform to push up and secure it, not committed to that idea yet but I did use a small punch and pushed it up and it seemed to solve the issue temporarily.
3)With MB lit, feeding the right orbit, the ball hits the diverter and falls into the pops.
The diverter works flawlessly when "The Machine" is lit, so maybe this is a software, not a hardware issue. Anyone have any thoughts, experiences, or suggestions on this one? This one is definitely my primary concern.
4) Occasionally the feed from the left ramp to the left flipper bounces around and works its way into the outlane or to the right side of the slingshot.
I haven't really tried anything yet but I'm thinking adjusting the alignment of the hole or possibly adding some foam for the ball to hit and deaden the ball a bit before it drops.
If I'm able to figure any of my issues, I'll let you folks know.
