Quoted from dr_spidey:

Can someone post a pic of the wiring for the diagnostic 3-button. One of my wires came undone.
Thanks
Rob

Looks like you are missing one of the green/brown wires that connect to the high score reset terminal below the diode and diagonal from the terminal where the white wire is connected. I would also solder those loose stands on the yellow wire so they don't short on something.

I'm In!
Just picked up a fairly rough but fully working and playing Shuttle!
Playfield is pretty borked, so I just ordered the new hardtop overlay.
Going to be interesting seeing how that comes out.

Can you post a link to the overlay you are using; I am curious to check them out.

Just to be certain, since your pic is hard to see. My loose Green/Brown wire attaches to the far right white connector. And connects to the bottom right connector. The same one that already has a green/brown wire attached to it?

Sometimes describing this stuff can create more confusion so I pulled my switch bank to take better pictures from various angles. Let me know if this clears things up or not.

Awesome. Thanks
Looks like the two green/brown wires are soldered together to the top left (or bottow right depending on which way you hold it)

OK now I'm 99% there. I thought I had everything working on my game but now I noticed the L/H kicker doesn't make any sounds nor score a point. It does kick the ball as expected though. Any suggestions? I'll have to see what pin/wire/switch is associated with it. Quick look under the play and didn't notice any broken wires, maybe one of the pins I changed out in that one connector is the issue, not sure? I thought it was working before though, SOOOO close to being done!

Acquired another astronaut for my ever-growing autograph collection on my plastics. Today's addition - Japanese astronaut Soichi Noguchi, who flew aboard Discovery on STS-114, the first mission after the Columbia accident. I like the little Japanese flag he drew with it!

That is perfect, wish I still lived in Daytona Beach to get those autographs for my game. Loved watching the night launches of the shuttle. Very cool. Lit up the whole horizon.

Way cool. How many more ya got to go?

As many more as I can fit! Looks like I could fit a few on the large plastic from under/behind the shuttle yet, I'll probably pull that one next.

I'm up to nine so far, btw:
Doug Hurley, STS-127, -135
Bob Cabana, STS-41, -53, -65, -88
Mike Massimino, STS-109, -125
Andy Allen, STS-46, -62, -75
Robert Behnken, STS-123, -130
Stan Love, STS-122
Rick Searfoss, STS-58, -76, -90
Tony Antonelli, STS-119, -132
Soichi Noguchi, STS-114

That's really neat, but no women yet I see, they must not visit the cape very often I guess. It's just insane that some people think NASA is fake. You could take them up and they would still probably say it was fake.

Well, the first consideration here is the overwhelmingly-male number of astronauts -- I haven't verified the exact figures, but it's in the neighborhood of ~300 men and ~50 women flew aboard the shuttle. So the probability of running into one of the women is significantly less.

Another consideration is whether I'll know in advance I'm going to run into them! I don't keep the plastics here at my desk -- obviously, I keep them at home, installed in the machine. I recall running into Nicole Stott a few months back -- I hadn't known she was going to be there. Oh well. Eventually maybe I'll get a few.

Don't even get me started on this. I recently had a long conversation with a Flat Earther. (The conversation was only long because I couldn't leave where I was posted, and at least the guy was polite and respectful, so civilized conversation was possible.) I simply can't wrap my head around such blatant ignorance of scientific fact. It's an impossible debate, because they reject everything spaceflight-related as "faked", and ignore basic scientific principles.

I didn't realize there were that many total. WOW

Isn't it just crazy especially in this day and age. I had to work with one of these people for about a year, it was horrible and the other things he believed in were just mind blowing. He really belonged in a rubber room.
