Quoted from Damien:

One of my trolls is not registering hits at all. I took it apart tonight, reassembled, and no change unfortunately.

Then you have a problem elsewhere if your troll is wired right. A new one won't help.

Look at the switch matrix in your manual. A broken wire on the same row or column will kill other switches.

Everything else that is working fine. I took the troll apart last night, and the switch basically fell apart. I reassembled it, but now it's not registering hits at all.

Before I took it apart, it wasn't registering hits from that ball, but I could manually close the switch to register a hit.

I have a feeling it might be the troll that is the issue, so I'm going to take my chances putting the replacement in.

Any tips on how to get the diode onto the lug with the wire (since trying to do the diode after the wire usually just heats up the wire and it drops off).

Should I wrap wire around the lug, and the solder together with diode?

Not rocket science. A leaf blade switch, when closed together creates a continuous electrical circuit. Put a meter on it and see if it works. If so, then be sure it is wired right. Compare to the other working troll. And check for broken wires inside the wire casing you can't see.

Diode has long leads. Stick that on first, then bend the lead over the lug a bit, stick the end of the wire in the hole on the lug or wrap around the lug/diode lead. Flow solder on diode lead/wire/lug at the same time.

Replaced the troll with my new one and everything now works perfectly.

Only issue now is I have one troll with lit eyes and the other without. What to do, what to do?

#205 13 days ago
Quoted from Damien:

Cut wires to working one. Or check LEDs in eyes and then wiring to other one. Your choice.

I recall hearing someone say that there was swearing in the original game which was bleeped out in the remake. Is this true?

The original had a hacked ROM if you could find it that unbleeped the F word.

Since the remake copied the Williams stuff and not hacks, and doesn't have ROMs, no unbleeped F word.

LTG : )
Disclaimer : The bleeped version is funnier anyway.

I'm looking for a merlin hole protector. Pinbits has shown sold out and has gone silent. If anyone has a lead on one please let me know.

LTG,

Thank you. For some reason I never saw that. All ordered and waiting.

#212 8 days ago

Hey everyone. Looking for some help here. My trolls seem to more often not work than work. When I power the machine up and go test, I can hear the 'buzz' of them trying to engage, but they don't raise. When I go inside the cab and jostle them around a bit then go back to test they will then raise and lower. Thoughts? It is almost like they may not be getting enough power? Was also thinking an alignment issue, but given both are not functioning right, I doubt that. Thanks for any insight.

#213 8 days ago
Quoted from captaindorky:

Thanks for any insight.

A couple things to check. Has the troll carriage separated from the collar holding it to the plunger ? Remove the plunger, it is two pieces held together by a roll pin, is the pin sticking out and dragging in the coil sleeve. Is the coil sleeve cracked or broken ?

LTG : )

#214 8 days ago

Thank you so much. Just looking at the whole mechanism more closely made me realize it was an alignment issue because of loose/missing screws causing the coil to be not properly aligned. Tightened it all up and added a couple of missing screws and all appears well in the troll world.

Thank you for directing me towards the obvious. One of these days I'll get it all figured out.

Anyone have an original playfield for sale? Not looking for retro.

Please let me know.

#216 4 days ago

Does anyone have a shaker installed on their MM original?

Curious to know if it reacts like the MMR one? Does it go off during castle explosion? When trolls come out? Catapult launch?

Also, do you have to do any game software updating to run it?

Thanks

Quoted from Damien:

No.

Quoted from Damien:

You'd have to update MM if you want a shaker to work like in MMR. But there isn't an update for MM so you could do this. On MMR, it's in the CGC software, not in the Williams.

Just bought this 1997 Williams original. But I keep losing the balls. Is there supposed to be a part here?

https://www.marcospecialties.com/pinball-parts/03-9681.6 A whole moat goes there under the playfield. Not a broken one.

Yup! You're missing the moat.

This is what you need:

If I'm not mistaken, you will need to change the wiring harness, as they're now making these to go with MMR. LTG can confirm this though.

Oh come on, you are pulling our legs! And no you shouldn’t fill your cabinet with water to make a real moat !

Looks like it’s out of pinball fluid, about 40 gallons should do, pour it straight into the moat hole though, don’t want to get any on the playfield ... also, put some green dye in the fluid for a creepy effect!

OK, I'll come clean. A buddy was over and we were having beers. I took my moat out earlier in the day to fix a crack (again!) Through all the beer, somehow this became funny. I didn't mean to take advantage of anybody's good nature and I apologize.

The super cool thing is, guys jumped right in to help. Especially Lloyd who is akways there for us. I actually do need a new moat, so I appreciate the links.

The second cool thing is that some of you guys saw through it and cut right back to me with your green fluid jokes. That was awesome.

Again, I apologize and will be sure to not let the beer talk in the future! I love this community and hope you guys can take a little laugh as intended.

Now, got to get all this motor fluid outta my machine.... Again, good one.
