Is the firmware for ACDC complete or is there something missing?

Quoted from Crunch:

Oi Mania is messed up, for one. So another update is likely coming at some point.

#1953 7 months ago
Quoted from vireland:

Which? There's two "stock" versions from Stern.

The newer Stern designed ones are rather nice quality too.

I'm surprised nobody has bothered to fix the colordmd rom for ACDC. Maybe they thought the next update was around the corner and were waiting for that?

I've thought the same.

Yes. The original Stern lightning bolts were flimsy, lame under-designed messes. But the newer Stern ones are MUCH sturdier and use LEDs rather than incandescents bulbs. MUCH better.

I was told at the Texas Pinball Festival by a ColorDMD rep, that an update from ColorDMD for AC/DC could be expected in 2019 for code 1.70.
There was no specific date given, but it seemed like there was some type of work going on in the background to make that happen.

#1958 7 months ago
Quoted from Crunch:

What color lightning bolts look the best yellow, white or blue?

I've tried all 3 and prefer yellow by far.

For those who purchased the lighted lighting bolts which color lightning bolts look the best yellow, white or blue?

Pinbits blue with rear flashers

I agree, bought a set of these for each of the two AC/DC games I have had.

#1962 7 months ago
Quoted from Kawydud:

I felt the warm white LEDs clashed with the blue bolts. I went with red and am very pleased.

#1963 7 months ago

AC/DC LED lighted Roof mod - NO longer making. However, I have 2 of them at reduced rates (new): see Pinside Ad.

Thx for 10 great runs of these!!!

Maybe they were/are waiting for the oi mania fix?

#1967 7 months ago
Quoted from Shapeshifter:

That might be, but I only asked about an update for the current Stern code 1.70.
I commented to the ColorDMD rep that I was still running my machine on 1.68 while I waited for ColorDMD to update their code for my brand new LED ColorDMD display.
He made some comment initially that there were only a few graphics that would appear in the original red/orange.
So I commented back that if it was so few graphics to fix, that they could probably issue a code update pretty easily.
And the rep indicated that a fix would be issued at that point.
I pressed a little then and asked "WHEN?!" in a rather loud voice.
He did not answer at first and I said "like this year sometime?!?!" and he said yes.

Catch 22

#1969 7 months ago
Quoted from Crunch:

I purchased the red ones with white LEDs and it looks a lot like lightning...
Which is what they are... lightning bolts...
They are VERY bright and the red seems to closely match the powder red coating on my machine.
Which is also what I wanted...
I think they should have been that way from the start from Stern.
Those little tiny LEDs on the stock lightning bolts are pretty dim in comparison.
I don't think anyone with epilepsy should play this game with those upgraded lightning bolts installed.
I don't have epilepsy, so I play it all the time.

I just joined the club, have a nice Premium with Shaker Motor & mirror blades
What other “must have” mods are recommended for a premium?

Encore is making me so angry. Backed off on my crazy tight tilt too. Still can’t get past 4-5 songs regularly and 7-8 if I have an amazing game.

I fear this is another wizard mode that will allude me forever.

Not to mention it’s so hard to get one EB, let alone two which I would need to do this I bet.

The thing about Encore is that I don't think you make it there unless you are purposely trying to get there. And if you are purposely trying to get there, then your score probably suffers as a result. Playing songs just to finish as quickly as possible isn't very fun either.

I agree. The journey to encore isn’t that fun. If I’m specifically going for encore, the fun level drops drastically.

Switch to GOT. The journey to IT is loads of fun, and the experience to get there is different every time.

Dare I say it I might like the journey to Royal Rumble in WWF more. Haha

And this is why I hope Lyman decides to give us whatever he coded to come at the end of 6 songs.

If it helps in any way towards progress to encore - even better!

Chucky,don't beat yourself up over it, soften the rules abit and that will get you to encore,and you can steadily make it harder as you improve, it worked for me,just a thought...

Right now the only way I’m getting there is 10 ball. I’m not that desperate yet. Haha

Adjusting song completion down to 6 shots makes a huge difference in getting to Encore. I wasn't even close on stock settings but making this one adjustment makes it so that I can get to Encore fairly regularly if I try for it.-just get really good at shooting that right orbit shot.

Get real good at backhanding the left ramp Once you achieve this you will get there as you can do most of the songs while in MB.

#1982 7 months ago
Quoted from Crunch:

If your talking about the LED bolts from HookedonPinball, I like the “bright white” bulbs. After much debate I think the “blue” LED’s are a little harsh and stick out too much, there aren't any other "blue-white" bulbs of that hue on the game. The "bright white" LED’s are really bright but more warm and not as sharp, I think they blend well with all the stock LED’s. Feels like a being at live concert when they all go off during multi-ball.
I’ve had some issues with individual bulbs not working on the T-bolts, sending 2 bolts back to have Robert take a look at them. It's not a power issue, think it's a seating problem where the power wires connect on the back of the bolts.
He’s been really great with communication.
I’ve been dreading pulling the middle bolt. It’s a super tight fit pushing the connector past the left ramp rail. Left and right T-bolts are cake to install.
Definitely my favorite mod.
Well, behind the "must have" ColorDMD (of course).
Worth it.

I agree completely...

#1984 7 months ago

I still love my Blue and chrome.

Added a few more mods and very happy with the outcome. I did a video on my mod addiction.

1) The Plunger with the light under is awesome , plus the coils that are also lit is impressive. They go off Yellow and Blue.
2) The stickers to go with my train track running up the left side is a must and a good price and you get the cannon balls for the right ramp.
3) Clear washers - installing those tonight
4) Drum sticks lighted installing tonight.
5) Lighted shooter ramp installing tonight.

Addicted and need serious help.

How was your day?? haha

Thanks Man, it was my 2nd video to record. The next one will be on a tripod and will show all the inside mods and the 4-5 items since that video. "Crazy"

#1989 7 months ago

Hi All,

I posted in the Luci room and need some help on a little mod.

Does anyone know if there is a sticker mod for the track that crosses over the PF on the way to the cannon?

Thanks.

The large metal piece sure does need a sticker. It sticks out like a sore thumb.

#1994 7 months ago

Long time ago a person in Germany made a very limited run of transparent cross ramp. Perhaps an idea for someone?

Guys, need help understanding whether I can “solve” this, or it is what it is. Last night I was showing some friends the audits menu and then stumbled on the Tournament menu. Not realizing until much later that you actually need a stupid physical extra Tournament button to DO tournament, I activated one figuring we could play it.

Now, knowing I can’t actually do that since I don’t have that button, it still shows this new stuff on the scrolling menu in between games about “CURRENT WINNERS” or something, and scrolls through the factory default names.

I have ensured that the tournament is over. I’ve started a one minute tournament. I’ve started and then ended a tournament. Nothing stops this crap from showing on the menu now, in between games.

Can anyone help me figure out how to clear that out so it doesn’t show some meaningless fake tournament into every single time?

Start and stop a tournament ten times. That will clear it.

Set Encore to 5 balls instead of 3.

#1999 7 months ago

The way it was written makes no sense, but I’m guessing he meant change the settings to have 5 balls per game rather than 3?

That’s the same as putting it on 10 ball for me. I’m not there yet. Haha
