Finally had a chance to shop out my Genesis. Complete rebuild on the flippers and install the new clear ramps and cliffy set. Made a huge difference!

Just one issue to resolve. Not MPU related since it acts the same running the original MPU or a LISY80 board.

The robot reveal rarely works. If I press on the motor relay it will start and go through the cycle. Doesn’t seem to work by MPU control. I’ve seen it work once on its own. Going to try and clean the contacts on the relay again. Beyond that I may try swapping out the transistor on the driver board that controls the relay.

Any other things to watch out for on the robot reveal?

I didn't see you mention it so I would recommend checking the Vari-Target. Those can be finicky and if the last spot isn't registering, you get no robot in game play.

Good point but I don't think that was it since it does the light show for the robot reveal and plays the music. If the light show never happened then checking the vari-target is an excellent suggestion.

I did clean the contacts on the relay again and I also took a little tension out of the spring on that motor relay. Since I did that the reveal seems to work.

Had this same issue - its the setup of the leaf switch near the motor - a make/break if I remember. Regardless, I had to actually trigger the event in game to see it work correctly - and it was that switch. If you need pics of mine as its set up, let me know!
