Browsing Pinside at night? Getting tired of all the white? Tommy's Pins. Pueblo, CO. So previously I made a post that my funhouse has a bunch of issues and melted all the controlled lights into puddles of plastic. Well fast forward to a couple weeks ago, I had my bride of pinbot at the Rocky Mountain showdown and it died on me at the show. I needed a MPU so I pulled the one from funhouse to make it through the show and everything was fine for the remaining time of the weekend.
So yesterday I finally had time to set up bride and see what I could figure out with the original mpu. I set it up, checked everything out and turned it on. There were only like 4 lights under the pf that were on and even those few were dim and flakey.

I checked the plugs on the board and the related transients to the rows and columns and everything was fine. So I started looking at the LEDs and found that they were melted just like the ones I had in funhouse. Common denomintor: the Rottendog MPU There has to be a fix or logical explanation for why this board is melting LEDs.

Schematics for each game are essential in tracing down connections to lamps, switches, and solenoids. Some games have information split between two manuals: a game manual for general game operation and an operations guide for more technical information.Need Pinball Tech Help: High Speed Sound Issue/New Rottendog MPU
Details for board and cabinet schematics and theory of operation guides for WPC games can be found in separate documents.
There are several versions of each generation. Some copies can be found on Planetary Pinball. Parts catalogs also had supplementary updates to add and replace pages as newer games were released after the initial release of the catalogs. Supplementary service bulletin books were released, which included service bulletins that detailed any problems or issues with games that were discovered after they were released.
The "P" suffix merely indicates a "plastic" chip case. Bank switching is required to address more than 64KB. The utility can be used to see which games used particular parts. The utility can be found here. The natural heating and cooling cycle, and vibration, in a pinball machines causes the socketed chips to slowly walk out of their sockets.
This loosening can cause mysterious behavior and resets. Firmly pressing each socketed device - including the ASIC - and listening for a small click can solve many odd problems. When batteries reach old age, they always leak electrolyte. In WPC boards, this electrolyte drips onto the switch matrix circuits. There, it causes extensive corrosion. The corrosion will eat up traces under the green solder mask, creating a lumpy appearance.
This corrosion is extremely destructive. It must be caught early, and gently washed with vinegar. Damaged components must be replaced, and damaged traces cleaned with a fiberglass brush and carefully tinned with a soldering iron.The only exceptions are the boards located on our specials page.

Probably going to get the Hood and Alabama(duh). Maybe a RN DD. Really going to depend on the future lines they unveil. Those could be used in such a line. We don't currently have a British heavy cruiser in game and Exeter is probably the most famous of those ships so would be a good choice to introduce them.

Also 2017 is the 75th anniversary of the battles of the Java sea. So if WG wanted to do an event then, they could have a nice premium ship to release at the same time. But I think with the Indy there's no point. There is always going to be overlap. The ship may be a different tier, or have some other characteristics that make it different. Didn't she was the same as the Richelieu. I think the US refit of Richelieu would be better as a premium but as it's head of class and Dunkerque, already in the game (also head of class) it won't happen.
They won't put two of the last french BBs as premiums if they want to make a french BB line (they have the material). In term of unique flavor, Jean Bart would be the very same as stock Richelieu, that's why I don't understand it as a Premium choice.
Richelieu all the way. That US AA refit. It will be god tier. Gascogne would've had two turrets like Richelieu and Jean Bart but with one facing forward and one facing aft. The armor is rather weak already, why make it worse by showing more broadside to have the aft turret shoot. It's Graf Spee all over again. Why loose the flavor and strenght of the full frontal turrets. I don't know if the Jean Bart offers something sufficiently different or special to sell it while having the ship's class in the tech tree.
But there's the Prinz Eugen, so t could happen. Weaknesses would be it's lacking long range AA, low number of secondaries, and, despite supercharges, still sporting just 8 15 inch guns at T8. Guessing that she will also get a radar consumable due to being the last Battleship ever built (Jean Bart really doesn't count). For this reason, sources which quote HMS Vanguard as having gun ranges in excess of 32,000 yards (29,260 m) are somewhat misleading, as such a range would have required the use of super charges, which she never carried.
She was a Franken-ship made from spare hull and guns, although she was built I think her strange construction could easily lend to creative balancing. Honestly I think there would be a lot of hate for releasing Vanguard at tier 8 price tag and she didn't feel good to play. We dont need a tier 8 Krazny Krym. Maryland got more AA.
West Virginia got more AA, enhanced radar, thicker decks, better torpedo defenses, and so forth. In effect, she was a new ship built atop the old. With the right tweaks, such as more accurate guns and possibly radar, she would make a decent tier 8 premium. The low speed would be a major downside, but she would be very strong in other areas.Any bets taken on Next Game Winner or Next Game Score will be void if the next game turns out to be a Match tie-break, though any bets on Next Game First Point will stand.
