  • Need assistance selecting a scoring system for mini-bowling

    I have built a mini-bowling lane complete with pinsetter, You can view it here:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HjFlVwzsr64 I would like to incorporate automatic scoring into it. I am looking for a camera based system that can operate stand alone. I obviously don't need front desk or back office hardware/software. Any assistance with helping me to figure out what I can use is greatly appreciated.

    If you are looking for a scoring system, pretty much anything out there will work. The only thing you will need is a switch that will make connectivity once the sweep lowers to advise the system to score. The accuscore series also requires a second ball light/ signal to let the scoring system know that it is on second ball, or it won't score any marks on the second ball. Basically it requires a 12vdc signal to accomplish that. I believe there are other scoring systems out there that don't require the second ball signal, but not sure on that one.

    There are the systems out there that use beam detection, but the one I had would not register half scale balls unless I threw it really slow. I just purchased several lanes of accu-plus scoring. It requires targets to adjust the camera, but from what I understand its a very reliable system. Haven't had a chance to play with it yet though. PM me if you need more info. Also Ted is an excellent resource, he used scoring on 1/3 scale bowling (Q-Bowling).
    If it can't be fixed with a hammer, try a bowling pin! They're heavier and more surface area for whacking!

      Not sure who Ted is. What's his user name here? And I may be in touch with you regarding scoring questions. You're way more of an expert on it than I am. The only center I worked at back in the day got it right before I left the place for a job in corporate america, so I never got familiar with it.

        Ted is his name and it's also his username. I definitely wouldn't call myself an expert in scoring systems, but I know the components of them and how to get them to function.

            Thanks for the confidence guys. I spoke with him about the choices he has to interface scoring with his 1/2 scale lane. I'll be first in line to buy a ticket to witness this wonder of the bowling world and the auto scoring he decides on.

              Cool, thanks Ted. I have an Accurscore Plus system with the old cameras that require the targets for adjusting the camera. I will be making some half scale targets and trying out the system in a few weeks, should be interesting to say the least.
