Quoted from Beechwood:

Can you clarify, does this board control the magnets AND the spinner?
My magnets always grab, but the spinner only spins about 50% of the time at the start of multi-ball.
Thanks for the great work from all us Sega lovers.

The short answer is if you have a problem related to the disc on Twister then the first step is to REPLACE the magnet controller board. It doesnt matter if the magnets appear to be working (grabbing the ball) as that is only 1 part of a complex board design. The board is also a switch input board and detect balls moving on the magnets and them being in the centre which then send switch signals to the main cpu board for it to turn on and off other devices etc. In this case the disc relay and therefore motor etc

Hope this helps. I'm back in the office monday if you want to order a replacement board.

Having had several times now where the satelite magnet fuse has blown, despite having the new board installed and doing the service bulletin fix of rewiring :s

Any thoughts on what might cause this? :O

Did you up them to 4A fuses? This was recommenced in applejuice's instructions and deemed safe. When I used 3A they would only last 50 plays or so. If you are blowing fuses at 4A you might have a more significant problem and/or a short.

Will check, thanks!

Wanted: new reproduction magnet processor board for my Twister. If any1 has a spare repro I'm interested. Pm please.

Quick Update. I've sold all the boards i've made now. (75 out in the wild saving games). I may have a couple of extras still, need to check, but after those go i will need to get another batch made. Depends on interest as to when i do this.

applejuice - if you have any extras for Goldeneye laying around, I would like to purchase one. Otherwise, feel free to add me to the waiting list whenever the next batch is made.

Not having any problems with my current board, but it will be good to have one as a precautionary measure for down the line.

applejuice I joined the Goldeneye club a few weeks ago and have been struggling to make the ball-save mag work. I am pretty sure my best bet is to get the new Mag-board you designed. Is there any chance you will make some more anytime soon? If not could you please add me to the list and I will buy one as soon as it becomes available.

Thank you,
John

Update: Another 25 boards are starting assembly this week. This may be the final 25. Should have them here in 3-4 weeks ish. Price is now £170 plus shipping. Your choice of ic (Twister or Golden Eye). Twister orders will also get the motor upgrade resistor for free as per previous orders.

I'm still interested, so I'll take one for Goldeneye if possible.
