I've seen posts about installing spinners in the pro model of Guardians of the galaxy to make it more like the pro model. Is it possible to upgrade the orb by installing the orb motor? Marco sells the orb motor, so no problem getting it, but are there other issues that would make it difficult or impossible to upgrade it?

The spinner is cheep and easy and fun,but the orb sounds like it would not really be worth the effort and I don’t believe the pro code would support it anyway.

Odd question, what if you downloaded the premium code on a pro then installed the Orb motor, would it work ?

Just a guess...but the lighting might freak out. Not much else different though. It would try to fire magnets that aren't there and might report a spinner error eventually since that's not there. I guess a lot would depend on if the switches and coils are numbered differently because of the extra ones.

I did a spinner on my Pro. I bought the spinner from Marco. Tied it into the standup target next to it. There is a forum here with details. Sorry I don’t have the link. If I find it all send it along.

I don't know what happens on a PRO machine if all of a sudden switch closures start appearing in the switch matrix which are not defined on a PRO machine ( not supposed to be there). Not sure how the software handles that, or if the closures are simply ignored ???
