    Has anyone changed the lightning flippers to regular? How does it play? My machine came with standard flippers but after nearly a year of owning I decided it was cheating so put a pair of lightning flippers on. It is much snappier now and I smashed my high score, same happened for me on fish tales too.

    Thanks for the great info. These have been pulled from a MET MOPLE which has square speakers as I didn’t see any of the border until they were removed. The lightning one looks really cool, I assume for an AC/DC? Yeah, I have red and / or blue lightning bolt designs (along with others) suitable for AC/DC.

Very appropriate, I think. At one point in time I had BLY Voltan and WMS Flash and Stern Lightning all lined up in a row in my garage back in Bakersfield.

    Posted 41 days ago by Lhyrgoif – in Operating/routing pinball machines ‐ Last reply 41 days ago

    I turn them off when not playing or when leaving the game room. You cant plan for unforseen things like lightning strikes (taking out the electronics), fires due to shorts etc, thus I always disconnect physically when not using them. Better safe than sorry.

    How many people sold their original for a mmr? And are you happy with the way the mmr plays compared to the original? I got a original mm and am on fence about getting a new mmr re or se.. I think now with the bigger screen, improved graphics and sound plus the interactive GI lightning and topper it might be worth to sell a nice original for a mmr? What your guys thoughts?

    I suppose you may gather some flack for your statement. SI has 316 pinside owners and 175 wish listers OTOH, I got a free ride with Contact. I was not expecting that. I was figuring I was going to grab some downvotes with my coffee table statement and no one was even bothered by that The only thing to shoot for is the horseshoe directly above the flippers, and that shot can often lead to drains (like Stern Lightning :-(( ). The two piece backglass (inner and outer) is beautiful.

    Pictures dont do justice for this game with the projector. I think you have to see it for yourself in a gameroom environment. Almost nobody use super bright game rooms when playing. Everybody wants casino lightning. So my game room is 100% dark because the games do all the lightning. So ST premium wil do great in most gamerooms. And the pro is for the arcade.

    Bally/Stern mpu power? Post #1 in topic

    Hi there, Have a Stern Lightning that refuses to boot. When testing, the 5v is generated fine on the power board, but there is no 5v at the MPU. I have seen in the schematics that this comes from connector J4 on the MPU; can someone lead me to where is the other side of this connector? :) Thanks a lot

    I also noticed that the capacitor at c17 is cracked. I can not read what the value is on my schematic. The speech board schematic in the Lightning manual is probably the clearest and the value of C17 looks like it's 0.27uF.

    Bazaar award, "3X Lamp Scoring" does this just multiply lightning lamp? Or will it give you three spins per spin on non-lightning lamp? I'm trying to maximize my bonus. I don't want to choose 3x lamp scoring if it's only for a lightning lamp. Anyone? Thanks. Just scoring. Can be insane points. My record is over 30 million for one multiplied lightning round. Only way to advance lamp spins is the lamp and a random Bazaar award.
