  • Vector scoring system

    Does anyone have any Pos/Neg observations with the Vector scoring system? If you don't want to post them here, please send to johnday720@hotmail.com. Thanks.

    You have GS pinsetters and no cameras, so i guess my BIG Plus about Vector scoring does not apply to you. But I as the mechanic, going from As 80 scanners to the vector cameras, am a very happy camper! I never want to touch a scanner again! Everything from my stand point as the mechanic of the center has been fabulous. I hardly have to touch a camera for adjustments, I have not had any equipment related issues after our warranty was up 2 years ago ( cameras, lower keypads, scorer computers, server computer, POS computers).

    The front counter staff at my center does have issues with the new system. Intercom lines freezing up and causing the the computer to freeze up when too many buzz the counter at once. There do seem to be a few bugs with the system at the front counter end of things.



    ....do a little research on the tv's you intent to use if they are going to be LCDs. We gou Olevia LCDs through brunswick and this had been my biggest headach as the mechanic. Many have failed... I have been able to repair them all though by opening them up and finding the bad capacitor and replacing it....and the center is lucky i was able to do this or it would have cost major $$$ for us.

      We've been using the Vector scoring system since 2004 with little or no problems. We had to change out our server and clients this last season, but that's not too bad since they're on 17 or more hours each day. Seven years for a computer is pretty good. The 8 scoring computers are running WIN NT yet, but we have had remarkably good success with the scoring system. Power supply here, cooling fan there, etc.
      If its gonna go wrong, it'll go wrong here first

        Hardware is very good, software has some bugs. Like anything the more bells and whistles it has, the more problems. Before we put in GSX we had amf 82 70s and the camera is the only camera I've seen that can see color pins in black light.

        Personally I think if you have Brunswick machines you should put in Brunswick scoring. If you have AMF machines you should put in Qubica or AMF scoring. They make there scoring work with there equipment the best, then add in other companies equipment.

          We have had some software issues at the front desk mainly with credit card transactions (mostly "out of memory" errors) and separating tabs (items that were paid for reappear - sometimes in multiple units). We are wondering who else is seeing these issues. There are also some issues with the interface to CDE leagues. Do most centers use CDE or Brunswick League service?

            Same thing here. we had the olevia tv's as well. sometimes it was not the capacitor, but the entire power board. We took all of them down and sent them back to brunswick, they gave us money back on the tv's. Bought all new tv's for the overheads, and now have not had any problems.

            (and you wonder why olevia is out of business :-))

              Sadly, we were not given that option.

              Their solution to our problem would have been for them to take our 37" olevia tv's, and They were going to give us some 32" tvs of another brand, and we would have also had to pay them X-amount of $$$ (I don't recall the $ amount...it was in the hundreds) for each tv.....it was not a very satisfactory solution to our problem, so we kept the tvs we had and i repaired them as they failed.....They have failed less often now as time has passed. I guess the ones that had issues died and now i am left with the better ones of the bunch and the ones that I repaired.
