Hi guys!
Spoke with prof. Pinball on creating a ramp led kit for my white water. He nailed it, just awesome! I still need to dial in the start timing of the chase leds, but man is it cool.
I have linked a short youtube vid of it below.
If you didnt know, the prof does amazing led mods for pins using a pinduino board. If you get a sec, check out some of his work!

Awesome work @dantesmark! Some people have already asked me for this kit. If you want to buy a plug and play kit, I just listed it: https://pinside.com/pinball/market/shops/1025-professor-pinball/01979-pinduino-white-water-interactive-lighting-for-the-ramps

For those that want to make it yourself, here are the instructions (thanks again, Dan for the pictures!): https://docs.google.com/document/d/1IhPxJX-rjk746d-eUyMkV-aTM7qvh0dUL39pcRxCexA/edit

Quick question. How do you speed up effect, so it tries to be in sync with ball.

You mentioned something about a switch at top of ramp. Does it come with kit, or separate purchase?

The guy that makes it has modified it since i bought mine to be more in sync w the ball... mine was a proto, i just havent gone in to update it yet.

Thank you! Do I need a gate mentioned by you in White water thread?

I just had a chance to work with @zene10 who has a whitewater to updated the code today. I tightened the timing of the main effect on the ramp and added in another one for the whirlpool.

The code is open source, and you can modify it easily (as well as upload it to the pinduino). The effect is triggered when the top-left playfield flasher goes off, which happens when the ball hits the switch at the top of the ramp. The whirlpool effect happens when one of the whirlpool flashers is triggered.

Code is available: https://github.com/elyons/professor_pinball_pinduino_sketches/tree/master/WhiteWater-LeftRamp

Hope that helps, but let me know if you have more questions.
