Still working on the video, wanted to get more shipped out today so I am working on the video tonight. We're getting caught up! Heard from CPR today, they are finishing the lids and going to 2nd day the box to us, so hopefully that gets out today or tomorrow.

Looking forward to watching it!

Your video starts with the lid off and the coil removed. I assume it's pretty simple to take off and attach the lid to the plate? Also, does the coil go back to the original place or is it moved?

Quoted from brucipher:

Ugh...while installing the mod the opto closest to the Dauntless popped off, and it appears the piece that keeps it snapped in place on the hole broke. What is the best way to reattach this? A dab of hot glue?

OK, so a little nervous to install mine. Does anyone have a pic of the opto so I know what to look for and try to avoid breaking?

Quoted from vireland:

Yeah, this was the WORST part of installing the lid. I was able to get the middle one back on without breaking the legs, but it's a huge pain in the butt, and if you break them, replacing them is the only way to do it right. Fortunately they're pretty cheap. Mouser has them.

Knowing me, I might as well order them now!!! Do you have a link for the bracket from Mouser?

Quoted from VillaThrills:

For the life of me I cannot get the Arduino programmed. Just never recognizes it is plugged in. Tried a PC and Mac. Tried 3 different usb cables. Tried with game powered on and powered off. I go into the port settings and never see the nano recognized as being attached. Any recommendations here?

It has to be selected in the port setting. If it is greyed out, then unplug the cable from the nano and plug it back it. I had to do that several times and then the port was recognized and you can select it. Otherwise just follow the video but make sure you add the two libraries to the program first. Good luck

I remember seeing a pict of the control pad and what the buttons do but for the life of me I can find it again.

Quoted from vireland:

Playfield-in side art blade installation is a snap with the wet method. The only way to do it. Like 10-15 minutes total to do both sides.

I agree. Used the wet method and it was no problem getting them into that tight space. 10 mins max
