Quoted from vireland:

Which spike2 games? Some are worse than others. Here's the chart for the ones I've tested with a temp probe on each coil so far:[quoted image]

yeah, wall outlets might of been a thing on older games with a transformer to playfield components. But like barakandl said new games use a constant output via switching power supply. (unless your not getting 48V off your power supply, that's not the issue)

maybe you've already done this with JP but, I lowered the power and lined up auto plunger so both tab parts hit the ball at the same time. As for the manual plunge, I had to lower the spring tension. Both were to powerful causing it not to make the entrance ramp, weird thing is that it worked fine for a while. Works 100% of the time now.

as for the marvel ramp, if you figure that one out let me know. It needs to be a clean hit, even then it's not guaranteed.
