Even though my bracket is also broken and the post office had all kinds of mix-ups getting the package to me (which I can confidently say is the primary reason it's broken), I'm not one bit upset. Why? Cause this is a beautiful work of art, from attention to detail on the piece itself, to its packaging and instructions. I'm beyond impressed and I haven't even seen it light up yet!
For those who have hooked theirs up, which light/insert did you go with? I'd like mine to flash pretty often but not leverage a light that is steadily on throughout gameplay. I see mention of CHAOS and the Control Room. Curious what everyone's favorite is.
Got the new bracket today! Only downfall is that if you already have installed the broken one (yes I went against advice and epoxied it back together) is that you have to start from square one with pulling the wires back out from behind the helipad, slide the new bracket over, then push them back in. Was that intended? Am I just being dumb?
Quoted from flashinstinct:
Yup gotta start from square one. Well almost. You don't have to take the board off etc... but you do have to waste 15 minutes of your life putting it back together.
Hahah don't get me wrong, not complaining. Just wanted to make sure I wasn't crazy thinking I could just slip the old off and new on while everything is installed. I will happily extend 15 min of my life to go through the motions. Can't thank you guys enough for redesigning and shipping out the new bracket in record time. I was not expecting to receive it so soon. THANK YOU! Also I think I will take your advice and move it to the Chaos light. Didn't realize even on a shitty round I could see it light up with the T-Rex multi-ball.
Yup got the new one but decided to keep the old that I epoxied attached. Too scared to pull the wires back out. Will replace when/if it breaks. But yeah the new one showed up in record time, flawless and with exceptional build quality improvements too! I'll post a pic in a few of the currently working install. Thank you!!! I love this mod.
Voted! More than deserved. I love telling people about this one + how it works + the design process and consistent updates + the whole "he sent everyone a new bracket" thing when they come over to play. I hope you win it. Really can't wait to see what you release next!

You make it sound so fun. . I don't recall having the same emotions LOL. In all fairness it was a great way to learn from my mistakes.
Something went awry and you made it right w/ improvements to boot. Learning experience for sure but the key is that you made it a positive experience for your buyers. Customer service goes a long way in my world.
