Awesomeness !

 

 

Thanks for having a go !

 

Wow just wow !

 

Your playfield layout looks wicked

 

Cool subway, hell yeah !

 

And yes, no doubt there will be the coolest Eagle 1 on the playfield

 

F%ck i'm excited !

 

I posted this a few months ago

 

Cheap licence, Perhaps free ?

 

I loved this show growing up

 

Super high tech stuff !

 

Would it make a great pinball ?

 

Hell Yeah !

 

The INTRO at 3:54 is the bomb !

 

Eagle 1, first sign of trouble PULL OUT !

 

Haha

 

Cool

 

Someone has to have a crack at this

 

Trumps Thunderbirds,

 

oops same producer

Just checking in to see if there are any updates?

Any thoughts of putting an electromagnet under the Eagle and moving it over another part of the playfield, maybe nuclear waste disposal area 2?

Cheers Trev

END OF STROKE SWITCH ELIMINATOR

 

Few distractions from another project but starting with the flippers.

Getting rid of the end of stroke switch the annoyingest

switch in Pinball.

A simple circuit with simple code.

Board for left and right Flippers.

TNA uses a similar idea to pulse the flipper coils as well.

So no EOS required.

Scott wasn't very happy with the result and said he would go back to an EOS switch next time.

Will be interesting to see the end result with yours.

So where in the program have you got the initial full power to enegrise the coil ? I see you then go to PWM to then give it the hold voltage.

 

C0 high

pause 35

C0 low

 

The circuit doesnt represent time its just showing what the pins do..

 

C2 is constantly running +

C1 is the switch C3 activated -

C0 is the initial full power pulse +

 

So....

C2 is running non stop into + side of the opto in.

When C3 ( flipper button pressed ) C1 energizes the negative of the opto in( 250ns of hold power)

250ns later a 35 millisecond positive pulse from C0 goes to the + of the opto in( 35 milliseconds full power)

While C3 remains on....

outputs C1 and C2 keep the flipper in a hold PWM condition.

I dont like idea of running the pulse width modulator off the main cpu either.

Those flippers in TNA get really hot :realmad:

 

I have tested my design with on times of 3 minutes + with luke warm results.

To test this I also have the left flipper with NO EOS and right flipper with EOS to compare results.

I'm sick of end of stroke switches in flippers so Ill probably just stick with

the PWM system and perfect it rather than capitulate.

There are endless variables to try before throwing in the towel...

Mark space ratios , on times , frequency , fets , transistors etc...
