  1. A bit more progress today. The Neopixel string was tested and repaired, one bad solder joint and several badly crimped wires. Isn't it pretty. This is just the test code but a variation of it may be incorporated into the attract mode if we get time. The switches were adjusted and all working, we had issues with the spinner not reading correctly but we think we've found out the problem. New faster code was installed and tested. It needs a bit more debugging. The wav trigger board was hooked up and worked. Ben modified one of the solenoid driver boards to trigger off 5v instead of the gnd signal it was using and the solenoid was repaired so the outhole now works.

  4. I have just about completed assembling my Pi Hat. Next will be acquiring or building some pods. Im looking mainly for the 6809, Z80 and 68000 units. If anyone happens to have purchased and not used any repro boards they want to get rid off, I would be interested. I have a couple of spare pcbs of the Pi Hat if anyone is interested.

  8. It's great that these two guys Benoit and Dorian, members of the Tamworth Tech Shed makerspace, are getting really interested in building more pinballs. The Tamworth Tech Shed is a not for profit makerspace (community workshop) that's run from a couple of sheds on our property as you can see in the picture we have a few 3d printers, resin and filament on the right, a cnc router in another shed, small laser cutter and a smaller laser engraver. We also have a 46" vinyl printer and 12 colour industrial embroidery sewing machine that need to be checked. There's even a lego table and wii console for the kids an two Hankins for the bigger kids. There's internet connection and wifi in this shed with a bunch of desktops. There are a few power tools in the other shed along with a wood and metal lathe, sandblasting cabinet, small hydraulic press, small table saw and a scroll saw. You can see the cab off our electric Hilux conversion (Project iLux) through the window, we're also building a plastics shredder for plastic recycling. Plenty of toys to keep everyone busy. A bit off topic but as you can see there's more than just Thomas happening.

  10. I had help from a couple of friends with the code today and it's now running a lot faster. There's still a bit to sort out with coding and hardware but we know what to do next. It plays a short attract mode, the game starts with a button press, scores on all of the switches, adds bonuses when you complete words and 60% of the playfield lights are working. The seems to be a broken wire in the neopixel string stopping the last 13 neopixels from working. We need to sort out the drain solenoid next then it's time to test the sound routine. There's still a lot to do but we made great progress today.😁

  11. Tonight the webserver has been updated to utilise HTTP/2 which is a bit faster and more efficient that the older HTTP/1.0 and HTTP/1.1. You probably wont really notice any difference, but letting you all know its been enabled.

  12. Well that didn't go as planned. Time to rewrite some code. I plugged the Arduino Mega in and it ran really slow? It does start a game but takes too long to register a switch press. Hmmm. Interrupts let's see how they work... I have someone to help with the coding now which will be great. I'm no expert just a hobbyist who's learning as I go.
