Quoted from cletus14:

The only issue I have now is the match sound number 15 doesn't play. I'm not sure where to start looking on that one.

Start by checking ohms from pin 1 to the rest of the pins on SRC1 and SRC3, should be @ 4.7 k ohms. Pin one is marked be a dot on the board.

Thanks! grumpy. I’ll look at that and reply.

Here’s some more pictures with everything installed on the completed and powered playfield.

Man oh Man cletus14 that game is gorgeous. You have done one hell of a job. I especially like the new target faces and matching post rubber on each side. Bravo

I'm going to make a second set for the newer machines with the circuit board back panel connectors. There are two more holes for the board mounting screws that I didn't design for in the original batch. I'll contact you when I send out the order for laser cutting.

SRC1 - Pins 2, 3 and 8 show 2.01-2.58 k ohms. The rest show 4.67 k ohms.
SRC3 - shows 2.3 k ohms down the line.

I forgot to mention. There is never and has never been a startup tone on this machine

Looks so amazing!

I installed an LED OCD board and It really classes up the controlled lamp look.
Super easy to install and highly recommended if you’re going full LED.

I don’t think they ever really understand!

I don't know why she can't see you added some spot lights.

That doesn’t go there!

I had to rewire the flasher socket next to the Yagov kicker. Those LEDs flashlamps don’t like it when the wires are backwards.

The SRC resistor network parts are on order and should be here this week.

Hopefully, replacing them gets me a step closer to fully working sounds.
