I have never understood the need to replace Stern's Factory speakers. They sound great to me.
This extends into WPC era games and beyond. Don't get it.

I understand where your coming from on past games, but you can adjust treble and bass now. Sterns factory speakers are full range speakers and fall flat on highs and lows. They basically are only good for mids. That’s why the vocals come through pretty clear and honestly they are the right low cost selection to suit. I’m looking for a bit more treble, and a bit more bass and these speakers simply weren’t designed for that, so that’s why I’m going to replace the backbox on mine

When I have bad games I tend to get a "Oh I really sucked during that game, but it was fun anyway! Hit start again! Yay!" feeling when I play AS.

Pretty unusual for a Borg game to be like that.

I've complained about the code but, Damn your right, it's been my go to pin. When i think I'm getting better and then the game let's me know I'm not by giving me a 5 mill game.

It’s a personal decision. I get a lot of satisfaction from improving the sound in my pins, especially music pins. Back in the Saddle and Sweet Emotion are just so much better with a good subwoofer. I like the FF cabinet subs, while my friends like external subs. Either way, once you hear the difference, it’s hard to go back.

I think some people just like blowing money on “stuff” ...

With the older games, the amps in those are like 4w output - putting in flash ass speakers is like sticking a 4” exhaust system on your Smart Car. Or plugging some KEF speakers into your iPhone.

The Spike games sound damn good stock in my opinion. I have them around mid volume I guess. Not super loud. I pumped up the bass adjustment to full on BM66 and the cabinet speaker peaked - I wound it back a little and she’s fine, at the volume I have it at. Plenty of bass, no distortion. More than adequate for me.

PS - I remembered I have a cheap ass Fusion 10" sub here, which I found worked well in the Whitestar/Sam games, I'm going to put it into a Spike game and report back.

This Fusion 10" sub is so cheap and nasty, the little amp actually drives it OK. I experimented with some quality Rockford Fosgate subs in some pins, the amp is so wheeeezy it wouldn't even move the cone to any great extent. Basically a waste of time. The shitty Fusion worked way better due to its complete lack of any quality or finesse lollll

Dunno - build an asset base that will provide for your family and create a legacy long after you’re dead?

Funny you mention a hearse - after 2 years off the road, today my hearse is drivable again!

New fuel lines, brake lines, and an ECU issue sorted out.

Just gotta finish off a little underfloor surface rust and I’ll be off to get me some licence plates!!

You need some Texas license plates for that bad boy. And of course a luggage rack.

And yes, a legacy is great and priority number 1 and/or 1A, BUT if you don't "blow some $$$" and have fun with our own hard work then our kids and grandkids will be doing it for us!

Quoted from KingBW:

Check out the flipper fidelity options for the speakers that have the same mounting pattern. You can order them with a lower profile if you eventually want to get a speaker light kit. That's the route I'm going on the next credit card billing cycle.

When ordering SPIKE & SPIKE 2 speakers directly from Flipper Fidelity you are given the option to choose "I do not have SpeakerLights" or "Yes, I have SpeakerLights". What that determines is if the speakers come with spacer rings attached to the front of them or not. These spacer rings are there to allow space at the front of the speaker so the protruding tweeters do not come in contact with the mounting surface when the speakers are mounted.

So if you choose "I do not have SpeakerLights" you will get the speakers with the spacers attached to the front of them. If you choose "Yes, I have SpeakerLights" you will get the speakers that do not have the spacer rings. The catch is....if you say "Yes, I do have SpeakerLights" you really do need to have the speaker lights....not later, but when you install the speakers. If you say you have the speaker lights, but you do not....you won't be able to properly mount the ringless speakers at all.

If you are talking about SPIKE 2 games and upgraded speakers (that have protruding tweeters) and Speaker Light Kits...you will also have to remove the metal bars from the holes in the factory speaker plates (which can be cut out with a dremel or powered through with some side cutters).....or you can buy a set of my "SPIKE 2 replacement speaker plates for Speaker Light Kits". This is a set of replacement speaker plates that have the bars removed from the speaker holes, It also makes it so the speaker holes can be centered in the honeycomb area. As well as providing 4 mounting points for each speaker instead of the factory 2. It comes in the same flat textured black material as the original factory plates and they should be posted on my website for sale in the next few weeks. These replacement speaker plates can only be used in conjunction with my SPIKE 2 Speaker Light Kits.

More info on using upgraded speakers with my SPIKE 2 Speaker Light Kits can be found on my website here:

Is there any reason sometimes the toybox closes and the launched ball hits Jacky in the face rather than going into the box when it's open? I'm guessing it's because lock isn't lit and yet somehow the box is open, therefore not earned?

I feel sorry for the little guy.

That would be correct which is why he taunts you on the screen say for instance "you wouldn't hit a guy with glasses".

#1318 3 months ago
Quoted from StormyX73:

Because there are balls in there.

Machine won’t load more balls in the box than required.

ie if lock 1 is lit, and there are balls in the box, it will close the lid and hit him in the face.

You see this most in a multi player game.

If you hit the lock hole, and there are no locks lit, generally it launches the ball out slowly .. and it goes across the PF, not in the air. Occasionally, it will hit him in the face for novelty value - “you wouldn’t hit a guy with glasses would youuuu?”

Lets say your lock is lit and it's going to launch your first ball into toy box. But say player 1 already has two ball locked it will not put your (toy) in box but you'll get credit for it. Jacky knows how to count.

I just watched some game play for Iron Maiden. I heard at least 4 diffent call out for lane drains. A lot of call outs for game play. And I believe about 10 high score champions. (loop, combo, spinner, spinner meltdown, 3 bank target champion, Ace high and Fear the dark champion) and more. When a match happened at end of game you heard it. Aerosmith is next in line for a overhaul, hang on to toy box Jacky.

Been suggesting for over a year that AS and KISS desperately need Champion awards - just hope they get them in the Summer updates.

Great ... been waiting for these new speaker plates too that you had previously mentioned you were working on. I'll order it all once you have these available. Then the old speakers can just stay mounted to the old plates in case I should ever want to swap them back out for selling it. Not currently in my plans to sell it, but ya never know. Could always mount the old ones under a swap box in some way to do something quirky/geeky too.

Yes, If update freezes, just turn game off, wait and repeat, 4th time was a charm.

He definitely does. I've only heard it once but it was funny as sht cause the game was on location. When the ball shot of the lock and hit him in the head, he said "What the F...". We were cracking up.

#1336 3 months ago

Here is what I don't get...why can't things like all the different high score champion, lane drain callouts, etc just be stock code "snippets" that the programmer essentially just drops in? I mean if it has been coded on one SPIKE game already, I can't imagine it takes much to tweak the rough code and apply it to another.

If I had the resources. I would download iron maiden code and see what would happen in AS.

#1338 3 months ago

Any way to reduce strength of auto launch? Mines at times kicking the ball so hard it smashes into the plastic in the upper right corner...

#1339 3 months ago

It seems after I updated code, when the ball is bouncing off the pop bumpers, back and forth and all around it sounds like a drum solo. Or maybe it was because I had the volume cranked up.

Yes, there are at least two f-bomb drops by Jacky in adult mode. Also, during Elevator Multiball, I'm sure that when the girl steps into the elevator, you can faintly hear her ask a suggestive two-word question (about which direction they are going--hint, hint), after which you hear something that sounds like Steve Tyler's distinctive chuckle ("he-he-he"). However, the audio is very faint and easy to miss, and the irony is that you can hear the same thing in family mode. Again, I assume it's a coding issue.
