I've now gone back to the original ramp on my machine. I just could not get the new ramp to sit flat against the playfield. The old ramp is perfect in that regard. I'm now near 100% with the left flipper cradled while the machine is fresh. To make the shot I have to have my flippers set to near 255 and once they start dropping off due to heat the shot becomes unmakeable. I'm going to try removing the front post to see if the demo leans forward at all. Hoping that will help. Might also try reducing the spacers by another mm. That definitely will require the post to be removed as the demo is sitting on it now 2mm down.
I also sent some info about the opto issues I am seeing. I have checked and double checked in switch test mode and have seen nothing out of the ordinary. I've seen these strange occurances though
1. Sometimes the up post will drop before the ball gets to the post usually while it's still under the demo. The leads to hearing the up post pop 2 times. I'm not sure what opto causes the up post to drop. I thought it was the one right next to the post but the ball is no where near it when it goes off the first time.
2. Sometimes the opto under the demogorgon does not register at all and I will be rewarded the mystery shot instead of completing the word or starting demo mode. I think this usually happens when there is a video in the process of playing and I shoot under the demo.
3. Sometimes the opto under the demogorgon seems to register twice so I'll either get a completed word or completion and start of demo mode.
This is on my PRO. Is anyone else seeing anything like this?
I have video of the 1 and 2 and I'm working on 3 to send to Stern. It really does feel like a code/timing issue since there are 4 optos involved in that area but if no one else is seeing it then it may be an issue with my machine.
