Quoted from Pahuffman:

That's all pretty normal. We're lucky any of these things work at all after all these years!
I love that MAME cab.

Thanks, I built it a few years ago.

So I rebuilt the chaser lights today tested and installed them, I wasn't expecting them to work thinking the board was gone but they did...sort of. Lights on both sides sets 1 and 3 work great but set 2 was dim and now 2 doesn't work at all while hooked up to the pin. They do work fine if I remove them and supply 12v.

My question is can the board be partially gone or is there a deeper issue?

Have you checked the continuity of the wires back to the board?
Also, there is a thread specific to these lights here: https://pinside.com/pinball/forum/topic/chase-rope-repair-in-data-east-st-and-hook#post-5246596

Wow love the pinkish Dilithium Crystals I did the same. I have the same Enterprise ship - only the Hull has a few blinking lights & surprisingly the 2 engines don’t light up even though there Red in colour is yours the same ?

Thanks, they're just the normal bulb, I removed what LEDS were in it since they over powered everything. I think my Enterprise might be the same. Was yours a Chip Carter off Amazon?

Just checked the grounds and they're good all the way, and I built them following the link you gave me. Perhaps I did something wrong, if nothing else I have some new IC's coming.

As a test I made a strand of just three LEDs and still only two will light.

The board is actually pretty simple. IIRC it's a transistor array chip on the output.
As a result; it's entirely possible one of the transistors is bad in the chip.

Heres a little demo of my Pinsound Shaker with TOS opening theme

Pinsound custom orchestration Star Trek 4 TVH main theme

End credits with TOS closing theme very close to finishing

#361 21 days ago

Good work. I'm not a fan of the ending credits being so long... but it's your game and I'm still impressed.

edit, figured it out.

Quoted from Pahuffman:

I'll send this suggestion to Chad at PinballCode, who is actively working on this game. Maybe he will implement it.
EDIT: Chad said it was one of the first things he removed. As usual with his work, this sounds like it's going to be a comprehensive code update.

I'm new to owning a machine so basically clueless, but how long does an update usually take?

Quoted from Hammer3246:

Honestly; however, long it takes.
Chad - I'm assuming is a hobbyist with a day job... and maybe a family.
He probably does it for fun... so; it'll take however long he wants it to take. That said; it may never be available as he may never finish it.

Seriously; keep an eye out... and if the pinball gods smile on you an update will become available one day.

Good to know, thanks! Like I said, I'm a virgin when it comes to owing one of these so that probably won't be last dumb question I have.

I didn't mean my comment to sound like a teacher exasperated by a challenging student.

Just being clear with the expectations - as I see them.

If you want to see how it's done... go follow applejuice 's in the RFM thread:

Honestly; he's better than Stern.

Oh no, sorry. It wasn't meant that way at all. I appreciate the input.

Yep he's just a hobbyist. I was emailing back and forth with him for several weeks at one point and then he just went cold on me. It's obviously not a priority for him at the moment.
