Here's a BBB picture I have. You can see a few things here.

1. In the lower left, there is a board that isn't in PM that means the OCD would have to mount higher up.
2. The fluorescent tube bracket looks like it may force use of the right column of standoffs with a narrow board and adhesive standoffs on the left edge.
3. Frankenstein LED OCD installation based on the Sys11 design.

Herg has a prototype board ready to test if anyone can help out by buying at a discount and testing it.

Yeah, I realized I had basically hijacked this thread, and I decided it was time to start one of my own. Sorry.

Installed the LED OCD for BBB tonight and all I can say is WOW! The LED flicker is completely gone and now and the brightness is perfect with default settings. The software allows you to easily pull up your game with default settings for LEDs in the switch matrix individually. It perfect for people experimenting and tinkering with the software on their favorite game. The board is a must have for anyone annoying LED flicker especially in their Capcom games. Honestly, I was so bummed when I LED'd the BBB. The effort and money doing it was a waste without the board.

Thank you Herg aka Harold and the others that helped!

Since Breakshot is different than the other Capcoms (why?!) with only one matrix I'm guessing there is still no way to led it?

you can LED the GI lamps in breakshot but you'll still have issues with the one matrix without an OCD board.

I just ordered an OCD board for my Airborne. Only one board is needed correct? The stock incandescents are way too dark and it definitely needs brightening.

Correct.

Not correct. Breakshot is the only Capcom game with a single lamp matrix and simple AC GI lamps. Every other Capcom uses 2 full controlled lamp matrices for inserts and GI lamps. If you want to do a 100% swap of all of the 6V bulbs in the game you need 2 OCD boards for Airborne.

The Capcom LED OCD does control both lamp matrices using a single board. It does not control flashers, however.

lol. It's been a few years since I installed them for a customer. I think the first iteration was 2 boards and Herg combined them or I might be misremembering.

Thanks. Looking forward to putting it in.

I just now ordered the board for my Airborne.
Really looking forward to this as the game is really dark as is.

Just so I understand this correctly, once installed I can replace everything except the flashers with LEDs?
Thanks in advance

Yes, but I would also recommend installing the LEDs and verify they are working prior to installing the board. The LEDs will be very flickery, but they should all light and turn off.

Make sure you dont leave any incandescents in the machine at all. I hadn't replaced the backbox lights yet on my Airborne with LED but did the playfield, and it kept blowing one of the microfuses. The fuses on the LED board cant handle the higher power draw, once I replaced all the bulbs the fuse stopped blowing.

Makes a huge difference, capcom games need the board for sure

Great tips, thanks.
