Only issue I can see is, if that's the main on/off switch It's going to be a bugger to turn on or off once the machine is in a line up. Unless you have a second switch at the front underneath.

I wired up the GI today. There might be a couple of mods to do to it but I'll have to think about the best way to go about it.

I've got a lamp under the metal case for the fat controller board. I might have to put some spacers under the fat controller case.

I have a question for you guys though. Should I have the pop bumpers and slingshots permanently lit or should the lights turn on when the pops and slings are hit?

I finally made it onto the new forum. Yay. 

I've been working on the sounds and a bit of coding yesterday and today. I've uploaded the new code to the boards but there's still a bit of wiring to do on the cabinet before I can test it. As usual things keep changing, I've still got to write code for the attract mode and I'm thinking of adding a switch inside the coin door to allow the attract music to be changed or turned off.

I'm actually having issues logging in on my phone. Samsung Galaxy S9+

I'll be doing more on the machine soon but usually post from my phone.

Unfortunately I had a voltage issue, I got 12v and 5v crossed over on a connector and blew all the mute inputs on the PIC chips on Mikes boards, Totally my fault the boards are great but I've had to wait for replacements to arrive, which they did today. I have a few spares now so the recovery time should be a lot quicker if I do anything else like that again. 

I do have a couple of other projects on the go at the moment but they should both be beneficial to future pinball projects. While I was waiting on the parts We decided to insulate and gyprock the rear wall of the Tech Shed (where I do most of the work on the Thomas pinball.) that'll make it more comfortable during the hotter weather. We also had a 1200 x 1200mm CNC router donated to the Tech Shed so we're working on restoring that next. It'll be handy for producing my own design playfields.

There's always plenty to do.

Sorry for not being able to provide more updates but there's not been much to look at.

 

If you're not aware. I created the Tamworth Tech Shed which is a Not For Profit Makerspace housed in the sheds on my property for which I'm the president.

The Thomas pinball is in one of the sheds where we gather weekly

Sent you a PM mate see if we can sort it.
