Sorry for ANOTHER post, but I want to help with any questions.
Be aware, this needs 12v power from some where. In my experience and opinion, getting it from the data east board set is a bad move. I always had issues when trying to do this.
That being said, ive been playing with rock914 ‘s power kit and its been enlightening. I can definitely run a lot more mods and leds add ons on my game now without taking any power from the boards.
Im working on my wiring and such still, so its a mess.
This power supply taps off the service outlet, so unless you have your games on a remote controlled outlet, the power supply will always be on if there is light in the room. This is because I have the light sensor board to control my mods. I put the sensor pointing right into an led in the slings. When the gi is on, the mods are on. I havent found an amazing way that i am happy with to remedy light spill from ambient room light yet, but my games are on a remote control outlet. It doesnt bother me.
I have been using a light sensor board for my raptor crate mod as well. The crate flashes when the danger insert does. When ever i alligator clipped this light to the lamp socket base i always had matrix issues and would get ghosting in other lights. I dont like alligator clips.
I also have my new trough board, gate mod, shooter lane strip, back panel illumination and some scoop lights off this power supply as well.
Ive remedied a few issues I had with power by using this power supply mod. I think hes calling it the “game on system”. Its been good to me so far. Its all laptop type plugs from the ps to your mods. You can also get bare wire ends to laptop plug adapters, 12v to 5v adapter boards, etc.
The system is bare bones, no frills, just the stuff you need. Im still figuring out what i want it to be and how to run it cleanly. More to come.
