Yeah it's a Finnish metal band.
In case you are wondering where I went, I left Omni back in 2015 to form CodeWalrus due to various reasons explained back then, but I stopped calc dev in 2016 and am now mostly active on the CW Discord server at https://discord.gg/cuZcfcF

As long as I made it clear in the title I guess i would actually reach a broader audience due to the similar name, another plus calling it Apocalyptica! :D

On second thought, I think I'll just call my ball machine Apocalypse, it also sounds better IMO :)

no
the gears run fine
only all the fine calibration isn't working anymore, and other stuff too.....believe me, i already thought about that
i'm thinking right now that i broke my motor and it is less powerful

it is a plug-in motor, no batteries
EDIT: I just tried switching the motor: nope
i guess i just suck at knexing
EDIT2: maybe i should make it computer controlled, it would work but wouldn't be that cool :'(
EDIT3: Added poll

I think you should just keep trying the mechanical elevator lift. Did you check the tightness/looseness of the mesh everywhere?
