Quoted from gweempose:

What does getting to the opto entail? Do you have to remove the entire Vengeance mech?

Gweem I got my lower right opto out with out removing the vengeance. The lower screw that holds the opto on is a PITA to get to! I have a 1/4 drive spring extension with a phillips head that I was able to get the screw out with.

Yep my game works perfectly now

Quoted from sillyoldelf:

I don't follow how if the opto is working fine in tests it can still be bad to cause this problem?

My opto would randomly trigger in test mode when I wasn't even near the game. I had an intermittent bad opto on the right side under the vengeance and once I replaced it the problem went away. What I noticed when I put the game in test mode was that when the opto would trigger the light on the opto would go out. There was a bad connection on the little printed circuit board attached to the opto and when the opto powers down and then right back on it showed in test mode that the opto switch had been triggered. During game play this caused all sorts of weird crap like the drop target constantly resetting over and over.

It's fixed now and I'm happy
