A few days and multiple hours of trial and error on the computer has me going with skeleton. I switched from my using my desk top(mpf) to a surface pro(skeleton) and I dont know if I did not go deep enough in mpf, but I really dug the tutorial pages on skeleton website. It just clicked. I have been running the machine on striker code just to figure out the shots and playfield mechs. I started mapping out the components, lights, solenoids etc.. As a result of using proc with stern driver board and wiring harness the circuit numbers are all over the place, but identified to go forward. Here is my high tech manual first 3 pages.
