Quoted from jfesler:
Any chance of a programmable GI board for stern, that'll allow for configurable high frequency dimming?
I'd love to dial back the GI LEDs on one of my games.
Maybe something crazy doable with the Williams GI OCD board and some crazy cables?
I decided to go the simple route with this one since there is no dimming on Stern games and only one relay. I felt there wouldn't be enough functionality to warrant the cost of a fully programmable board.
That said, there is a board that I think you could use. Another Pinsider, caker137, designed a programmable board to use in DataEast games. See here:
While his was designed for DE, and mine was designed for Stern, the GI of each of these is nearly identical, down to the pinout of the main GI connector. The connector where he gets input power and where you "hook into" the control signal is different, though. I believe you could use his board with some customized cables for programmable operation in a Stern game. I also believe you could use the GIzmo with no modifications in a DE game.
Quoted from akm:
Now that I have had this board in my game for a couple of weeks, I can say it's a nice feature to have.
Thanks for the feedback. I'm glad to hear it's working well for you.
