My LAH is running a Color LED DMD, Pinball Pro Premium Speakers, LED's, and a XPIN Power Supply. Just ordered the board and looking forward to the install.

Wondering if this board is compatible with Goldeneye? Also when you check out on the website you can only purchase 1 board.

Goldeneye is a whitestar system, so not compatible with the EnerGI Maestro. You might look into herg's GI gizmo for that game (search this thread for the keyword Goldeneye)

Quoted from unlockpinball:

when you check out on the website you can only purchase 1 board.

If you would like to order more than one you can either just shoot me an email and I can send an invoice. Or if you place individual orders, just let me know and I will combine shipping and refund the difference. If you'd like to combine more into your recent order, just let me know. I usually ship next day so if I don't hear from you I'll go ahead and send your one kit on it's way. Thanks for your interest!

Received the board, E-Z install and board word great!! No "click click click" noise.

I’m currently using a GIzmo for the GI in my phantom of the opera. And while that does fine with the strobe effect, I really like the idea of no clicking and adjusting backbox and playfield separately. Do you have any confirmation that this works on the older data east games that use Williams system 11 power supplies?

Quoted from jboner1058:

Do you have any confirmation

I've had some folks install in Torpedo Alley and Checkpoint and they reported success. It really should work in Phantom. If you want to give it a try, buy one and install it, and if it's a no go, just send it back to me and I'll refund you.

Is there any delay timing wise with this board? Phantom pulses the GI to the beat of the music during multiball

Quoted from jboner1058:

LAH does the same thing with synchronized gi flashes. They still line up well to the music unless you set up the fade out speed to be really slow. If you keep the playfield fade speed similar to what your gizmo does today, I think it would act pretty much the same.

We're sold out again! Thank you all for your continued interest. I've put the waitlist back up on the website. If you'd like to sign up for the next batch just go here:

https://sites.google.com/site/energimaestro/waitlist

Once the list gets long enough to place a bulk order I will email all on the list to confirm interest and then I'll get some more kits put together.

Dang missed it cause I was waiting on someone to buy my GIzmo first

Im in on the waitlist! Cant wait!!!

#361 6 months ago

Just got on the waitlist. Played quite a few games of LAH last night with my daughter. And more times I said to myself I got to find a way to mellow out the flashing. I almost had a seizure.

#362 5 months ago

I disconnected the relay from the advice given earlier in this thread. That will hold me until my turn on the waitlist comes up

Any body have one of these boards for sale? I just got a JP and the flashing GI is really bothersome. I put myself on the waitlist, but thought I'd also post in case someone has one.

#364 3 months ago

The wait is almost over! Parts orders are going in this month, targeting shipment late January. If you want a kit please head over to the website and sign up on the waitlist and I'll make sure a kit is built for you. No need to sign up again if you are already on the list. Everyone on the list should have received an email letting you know that kits will be built soon. If you didn't get an email even though you signed up, shoot me a PM and I'll get it straightened out for you.

Thanks!

EnerGI Maestro is back in stock! I've put some extras back up on the website for direct purchase for USA destinations. Or, if you are international or if you'd like more than one kit, just let me know and I can send a PayPal invoice with the correct shipping amount.

If you've signed up on the waitlist and have not already been receiving email communications from me, just PM here; I still have held back enough kits to cover the entire waitlist, but those will be released to the general population next week if I haven't heard from you by then.

Thanks everyone! And don't forget to post your install pics in this thread! Love to see them.

Awesome product, just ordered, can't wait. I already had a GI OCD and insert OCD board from a Williams game, so got the playfield OCD installed and this is what i need for the GI!

Watched the videos, well done on the effects.

Thanks! Hope you like the kit. You should have it in just a few days. Hard to believe this design is 5 years old. Glad you guys are still digging it.

I recently installed this in my Tommy. Great product! Huge difference and well worth it.

Saw the shipping notice, thanks for being speedy!

A good product is timeless... or something like that, haha

I too installed one of these boards on a Tommy, and it was exactly what was needed. Previously, after installing the LED’s, the game was a seizure inducing flash monster. Installing this board completely eliminated the issue. This board is simple to use, simple to install, and Craig was very helpful when I did have questions and very attentive with service. Great product.

How long do you have to hold down the PROG button to enter programming? I've held it for up to a minute and it hasn't entered programming mode.

Thanks.

Quoted from chrisnack:

Should be much quicker than that, like 1 second. Things to try:

1 red lights are cycling normally after boot up?
2 Make sure your pressing the correct button (sorry, had to say it)
3 Try holding up and down together for 2 seconds to factory reset.
4 Hold down prog while powering up. This should enter a test mode where each string cycles before booting into regular mode.

Feel free to email me if you're still having trouble and let me know how the above goes. I can provide more timely support that way as opposed to pinside which I don't check quite as often.

I’ll try those once I get home from my business trip. I’ll ping your email if I’m still having issues.

Thanks!

Well we're sold out again! The spares from the last batch went pretty quick this time. You know the drill; the waitlist is back up on the website. Sign up if you want to buy a kit and when we get enough names I'll begin a new batch. Thanks everyone!

I have this board in my LW3 and I think it is a must have for all of the Data East games. I couldn't stand the sound of that clicking relay before I installed this board. With the ability to now adjust the flashers it much easier to play in a dark room. Great product with easy installation and programming

Anyone have one of these in a GnR? How do you like it?

Quoted from gweempose:

I have one both GNR and DE Simpsons, both are set to default with no adjustments made. I don't notice as much difference with GNR as I did with my DE Simpsons but I'm not as sensitive to it as a lot of people including a friend of mine who says it's ALOT better.
