Quoted from robm:

I would really like some more info on this as well (apart from what has already been posted). To me, its better to take the jackpot whenever its avaialable, and as you say, collect it 2 or 3 times, rather than wait simply for it to build up....unless...there is some multiplier/exponential effect from letting it build up longer.
Its easier to light 2x than to relight fire 3 times, so i would have thought getting song jackpot to 10M, and going for a 2x multipler and doing this 3 times for 60M is a 'safer' strategy than try to let the jackpot get to 30M and get 2x and collect the 60M then in one shot. Both strategies should yield the same points, however there is a greater chance of gettign the reqard with the first as you aren't waiting as long to collect a single song jackpot - so your chance of draining is less - plus if you stuff one of them up, you still have the other 2 jackpots.
Maybe its redundant for me, as i pretty much only play to try and get to the elusive encore mode!!! Have had it lit once, and choked, that was 3 or 4 years ago.

Risk verses Reward.

I have found that if I wait to fire the cannon until it is on the return trip I have less issues with it not actually dropping the target.

Quoted from jonesjb:

Thank you, I’ll go with Rosie. Do song jackpots grow exponentially? I’d not, is there a reason to let the song jackpot grow instead of just cashing it in?

Let me preface something here especially since you say tournament play. Before you pick Rosie or You Shook Me, you better watch that feed out of the pops. If that feed is anything other than friendly I would strongly encourage you to actually avoid any song that diverts the ball to the pops. There is an AC/DC that I play in league and the feed from the pops is 50/50 SDTM. When I see players pick one of those modes I know I've pretty much beaten them already.

Am I the only one who thinks AC/DC pinball is better than Metallica?

It’s not even close imo. ACDC is far superior. Even with the newest code, MET is a lumberjack’s dream game.

Agreed. I really want to like Metallica as I like the band and art better than ACDC but the game feels like chopping wood and doesn't have the excitement and smooth layout of ACDC.

Yeah I’m just not a huge Borg fan. I tend to struggle with his layouts. TWD was so well done all around though. And it’s a dream theme for me. So that one gets a pass. Haha

I dunno... I have them both, sitting right next to each other. The Beavis and Butthead of pinball machines. I think they compliment each other wonderfully, and I jump from one to the other frequently. Love 'em both. Don't make me choose! LOL

TWD is Borg's best layout and Lyman's masterpiece. My all time favorite game and really the only game that comes close is ACDC! Just need Lyman to finish that code and put it over the top...

Anybody with the Laseriffic Train topper, do these buttons have any functionality? I just purchased the topper and it stays solid red. The buttons have seemingly no function. I wrote laseriffic / cointaker, but havent received a reply, and the CT support email info@ bounced back.

I'm in the same boat. I bought one and nothing happens. cointaker told me they'd send me another controller but I haven't heard anything since after texting and everything.

Well that's a little disappointing. Not exactly a cheap product. Thanks for the info.

I have one, and it flashes.... BUT, there is no little control like you're showing. The wires just go straight from the connector to a quick disconnect right behind the Topper. Works fine.

I’m done with them. They also told me I could purchase a DP Premium at Allentown and to bring a check. I did but when I showed up, they said they didn’t have one and set it up on the floor instead. WTH?

Still I gave them the chance when they told me they had one in stock and would deliver it that week. Then after a day, all of a sudden they didn’t have one.

So I’m basically I dropped two bills on an AC/DC topper that doesn’t work properly.

Communication etc. by cointaker (which is also Laserific) is awful. NEVER AGAIN, kids. You’ve been warned.

We use these dimmers in some of our mods. Make sure the dimmer is not wired backwards. You’ll see it says led on one end and 12-24v on the other end. The led side of the dimmer should be on the side running to the topper, 12-24v should be on the side going to the game’s power connection. If it’s wired backwards, the light will just stay on a dimmer won’t function.

#1867 7 days ago

It should allow you to change the color and effects. Those are dirt cheap imports from China. Same type of ones I used for my Tron mods that I was making. I had to triple check they worked before installing them before I soldered them on.

At this point, if they wont take care of it for you, may be easier to just get a comparable light strip and make your own. Not what you should have to due but you can get strips for about $20 these days now.

#1868 6 days ago

Ok. I'm sorry, I was mistaken. There is a controller on mine, and it switches the mode and flashing speed. Again, sorry for the mistake.

Just as an update, I went ahead and cut the wire and turned it around, and it is working fine now. It doesn't change color (but I am guessing it's just a straight red led strip), but the effects are working now. Thanks for the help.

I am a bit disappointed in laseriffic / cointaker for not even getting a response. I like to judge people on their best day, not their worst, but since this is my first experience with them, I probably won't ever buy anything from them again.

Guinnesstime you may never get a response or a new controller, but just try reversing flipping it around, and hopefully that solves it.
