Quoted from Wolfmarsh:
I definitely recommend powering any mods separately and not leeching off the pin's power.
Why? There’s plenty of power available if you know what you are doing and don’t go crazy. I’ve never ever had a power issue with a spike game, or any game really.
Quoted from vireland:
Spike is extremely fussy with voltage. You may be just a hair low on this machine and adding pinstadium pushed it over (or the pinstadium strip itself may have a problem causing too much voltage draw). Check the output of the power supply to make sure it's putting out a solid 48v to the power distribution board. If it's not, there's a pot that can adjust the output.
Haven’t experienced this. What have you tried to power and had an issue?
I’m not sure about pinstadium, but I thought they power them externally? Might be wrong on that. If they do draw power from the game, that’s adding like 60-100 leds, and that could cause issues. I do believe they do a lot of backstabbing and alligator clips. If not done securely, that can cause an issue.
