I read a few posts about flickering topper and spotlights.
Followed up every tip/fix I could find but no succes for me...

My topper is flickering too but when it does ALL the spotlights and the ledstrip on the left side of the BP ramp flicker too.
At the exact same time. And it happens irregular but A LOT and all the time.
Is anyone having the same problem or are all the spotlights and ledstrip supposed to flicker in sync with the topper??

Quoted from f3honda4me:

Normal far as i know. Only happens while playing, right?

Happens while playing, and in attract mode.
I only know my game, never seen one on location.
But if it’s supposed to do that i’m ok with it of course!

Quoted from Lermods:

Mine does it, I don’t like it.

I don’t like it either...
Topper flickering is no problem for me but the flickering spotlights is a little too much in my opinion...

But if it’s programmed to do so i’ll have to accept it for now...

Quoted from Psw757:

I like the flickering, I think it is supposed to simulate the
flickering of a torch flame.
Problem is the led color isn’t warm and doesn’t really make
it seem like that. It also doesn’t help that the torches on the
topper are a sticker or decal.

I like the topper flickering too, but the spotlights should just light up and stay on without flickering. Wish there was an option for that in the menu.

Quoted from zaphX:

The spots should be staying on. Are you 100% sure the spots are
flickering in tandem with the topper?

Yep 100% sure!

#1035 8 months ago

Ok, so I do have a problem...
I already thought that it wasn’t normal because it’s extremely distracting...
I’ll post a video later.

So, maybe there is no problem after all and it’s completely normal.
Maybe some people just notice it a little better than others.

I just watched the last JJP POTC stream very closely and I noticed their spotlights were flickering too.
Although on camera the flickering effect is more difficult to see.

Quoted from gumnut01:

So no one else has the pops and crackles (like small little interrupt hiccups) happening at certain times in the audio?

I did have the frustrating audio pops.
Solved it by unplugging this connector.
My headphones don’t work anymore but the sound over the speakers is crystal clear now.
