#4051 39 days ago
Quoted from netman63129:

I ended up swapping out the stock 3/16" post rubbers for 3/8", which is more the standard size I see on most machines anyway. This seems to help with some of the cheap drains. As other have mentioned, increasing the playfield pitch would also help but I think that mine is high enough already

I found out today that putting a 3/8" rubber on the right post at inlane/outlane location, causes the ball the get stuck in the outlane. It's fine on the left side though.

#4052 39 days ago
Quoted from Dunfielder:

My Cooper did something strange today on the new code. Was playing a monster mode when flipper power died and it drained my ball as if I had tilted although I hadn’t. Anyone else have this happen?

Hey there, I am having this problem. When the mode starts, all of the coils in the game shut down. I am working with spooky on the problem. We figured out that if we disconnect the upper magnet the modes work fine. It has something to do with the magnet. Are you still having that problem?

#4053 38 days ago
Quoted from Mr_Outlane:

Bug alert!!
I noticed twice now that the ware wolf mode does not light the red inserts the first time around. They do light after that, but not the first time.

I think I may be misunderstanding what you mean by 'first time', maybe, but it won't, as the first time all shots are green. Once you make a green shot to cock your gun, then shoot the center targets to fire at the werewolf, the shots to cock the gun are green again - except the one you just made, it will be red. And the process will repeat - until after 4 or 5 shots they're all red - except for the last one. Shoot it, then the center target, and you defeated the werewolf.

#4054 38 days ago
Quoted from Mr_Outlane:

I noticed that the Titan rubber kit for Alice has cone shaped post sleeves?
Which way are these supposed to go on?
And why are they cone shaped?

The larger end goes up. The tapered shape prevents airballs.

You guys have 3 customer kits listed on your ACNC page. Have you looked through them and confirmed they’re accurate to factory?

#4057 38 days ago
Quoted from Silkenone:I only switched the flipper rubbers and dialled their power down a bit, along with the slings. It changed everything for the better (and I was in love before).

I’ve found Titans wear better and have a lot less bounce than the stock PL ones.

Quoted from 27dnast:

I can tell you that the GID kit with purple upper flipper has one o-ring that seems too small. Pretty sure I didn’t use the wrong one everything else was fine. The one for just left of the guillotine ramp. Other than that it was all good.

#4059 38 days ago
Quoted from TheWombat2430:

So my ACNC is giving me phantom guillotine hits. It’s usually when I hit the right flipper. Any suggestions as to what the issue may be?

I had this problem about a month ago. The left side of the opto had come detached and one of the wires had come off it’s tab. The upper flipper thumping was causing the opto switch to register. I soldered the wire back to its post and reattached the switch and it’s been perfect since.

Got my Alice topper installed. Love it!

I took damage hitting a shot that had not turned red yet. They did turn red after that round though.

Quoted from Mr_Outlane:

Ah - there's a bug that's been in the game since at least v1.0.7.4 - When the center targets are lit (to fire your gun at the werewolf), something will cause the other shots to become re-active. It will play the bad shot, and say you took damage, but won't actually reduce your health bar. I have noticed this in 1.1.0.0 as well.

I think it's just all the time. Once you've hit a shot, if you hit it again, you'll get damaged, even though the light isn't on/red. I reported it a while ago too

A man of many words I see

#4066 38 days ago

I * AM* curious why it's "verified", but specifically states it has changed some sizes? That, to me, kind of weakens the 'verified' label.

#4069 38 days ago

Bugs.

I am running latest code 1.1.0.0. The bonus still is not being added to the scores. I cannot add service credits. And the super value aka bonus credit setting is still not working.

these were present in 1.0.7.6. i went from 1.0.7.3 to 1.0.7.6 and that's when they were introduced to my machine.

A couple weeks ago during league there was a group of 4 players playing. on ball 2 player 4 hit various skill shots and none of them registered. Even hitting any switch did not take the game out of the skill shot scenario. This happened to the next player as well. When it was player 2 on the ball 3 plunge, it showed the start mode scene as it should have since he didn't access a mode yet, but after the monster battle intro he was not in a mode. Previously player 3 on ball 2 mentioned he entered a battle and it showed the monster intro sequence twice, not sure if it's related, but the player after that is when the issue started. I power cycled the game and it seemed to resolve the issue.(this is a 3 ball set game.)

#4070 38 days ago

Another strange issue -
When in Service Menu, and you go to look at the Statistics, it will say "Press Start to Select". DO NOT . It'll lock up your game, and you'll be forced to reset it. You can view the statistics, but.. trying to 'select' one will lock it up.

#4071 37 days ago

I have had two issues since installing 1.1. Sometimes when starting crypt multiball in a monster mode causes the coil power to die like a tilt and you lose your ball. And when you start a new game but the previous game had ended with a ball in lab lock one, which drains out perfectly fine at games end. It’ll say ball missing and shoot one out on the playfield and drain it when you start the next game.Then you can press start and it’s fine. Both issues only started happening with the new code.

#4072 37 days ago

Figured I’d put this up as well regarding Titan rubber kit. The reason the sling rubbers are a little bigger. I’ve read from multiple posts about Titans and the consensus is you need the larger size for slingshot rubbers. They are very stiff o-rings and apparently if you run stock size for slings they can break much quicker. I have no idea for the 3/8 to 5/16 change but as this is the kit I used I can say they work fine.

ACNC shipped with pinball life silicone. They don't make a 2-3/4" ring at all. So ACNC got a "pre-stretched" 2-1/2 on the slings. The sling post spacing really needs 2-3/4" in my opinion.

The 5/16" on the star posts were so tight they were discoloring a tiny bit so I changed them to 3/8".

I have not had that happen. In fact, there is still plenty of clearance and it should never happen on my game. Maybe there is some variation in the width of the outlines. Can you post a photo?

We found this same bug last weekend in competition mode, extra balls off, Frank lock "disabled" to stop ball stealing. Skill shots stayed lit and did not register.Power cycle fixed it, and otherwise the game held up to 4 days of competition perfectly.

I ordered the figure from Sideshow about two months ago. It took a long time but finally arrived yesterday. Very happy with the way it turned out as I’m not crazy for the brain-o topper.

#4079 37 days ago

Had another weird bug today during league. 4 player game. Player 1 ball 1 noticed the left orbit was not lit for skill shot. Left orbit lights appeared to be out the whole game. The monster mode select lights also were not working. I went into werewolf and it was just super weird. The save lights weren't working properly either. I started a crypt multi ball and drained 1 of the 2 balls right away. The mode ended even though ball save was still flashing for a few seconds after. Power cycling seemed to fix the lighting issues.

This is a possible condition with the RGB LED boards - they will lose 'sync' or lock up, and will stop responding to commands. Unfortunately, the only way to reset them is to power-cycle the game. Have had that happen a couple times to me, with the same board.

To add to this: I've experienced this and the issue above. - Also noticed that occasionally (usually 4 player or coop it seems,) that the skill shot will not register when you hit the Danesi lock and. Ball is already locked and ready for Crypt Multiball.

The multiball starts but the hidden passage doesnt light and one or two times it lit the hidden passage for the following player after ball drain even though they didnt hit the skill shot.

I'm sorry, I mean a 5/8" O.D. (3/16" ID). I used 7/16" OD instead. But the 5/8" O.D works on the left side with a 7/16" OD above and below it to hold it in place snug. Just an experiment. I know it's silly.

Hello,
I'm in, pin n° 215, here in France. Thanks Spooky for that ! ! !

I like Alice Cooper, I like Pinball, I like Alice Cooper Pinball

I've got a small problem today, just after the installation of the last code.
something to do with that I don't really know.

Magna save between the flipper, catch the ball but don't throw it any more on the playfield.
The ball fall in the outhole and shaker goes on.

Is there anything for that in the settings? How to solve this problem?

Thanks so much for your help ^^

What pattern are you using?
Is it bare magnet or with disc mod?

Quoted from LorenZ:

There is a setting in the menu for "Magnet Pattern". Change it to a different pattern and see if it fixes the problem. If it doesn't, try a different pattern. I think there are 3 or 4 different patterns to choose from.

#4086 35 days ago

Pattern 2 is the only one that works on my game. It was like magic when I changed the setting to this one. Good advice to try different patterns. I really like this feature.

#4087 34 days ago

Thanks for your help friends

Everything is ok with pattern 2 (Magnet) and last code !
The coil of the upper flip works fine. I put it from 13 to 17 (in setting)

I have kept others settings as factory ones. I 'm open to good advices ^^

#4088 34 days ago

Okay, two things -
First, after a ball search releases balls from Frank and Crypt, why is there a need to re-lock them? i.e. Why do I suddenly have to lock ball 1 again? We have an autolauncher in this game - can't the game know that, "Hey, they already locked one - even though the ball is missing and in the trough, they only need to lock ball 2!
Second, trying to restart a game while in the middle of a game is.. wow, confusing. TO both me AND the game. I did it just now, and somehow made the game think there was an extra ball or something - if I had any less than two balls on the field, it would do the EOB bonus and move on. This is AFTER holding the start button to start a new game, having it.. terminate my game and NOT start a new one, requiring me to his start again.

I’ve noticed that about locked balls too...

Quoted from 27dnast:

Same here. It seems like the game is losing track of balls after ball search releases balls.

#4091 34 days ago

Still some stuff to be worked out in the code but loving the new update!

Anyone have any tips for getting the spinner to rest more vertically? Ball goes under spinner or rejects sometimes. I've messed with the wires a little without much luck but didnt want to be too aggressive and make it worse

Drop some super lube or machine oil at the two contact points. Just a tiny little bit goes a long way.

In general to adjust spinners you have to push them forward or backward until it rests how you would like.

#4094 34 days ago

Has anyone noticed the leds all flickering sometimes with the new update? Eg whenever I start a mode, all the lights come on but strobing slowly for a second, then even out. Also noticed it on the GI around frank one time when locking a ball.

Cannot say I ever noticed it, but ran over played a game.. On mode start the lights do stobe but pretty quickly for a second or so..

#4096 33 days ago

How many times must you zap Frank to officially defeat him? I've done both ramps a bunch of times and then zapped him with the center target a bunch but not getting the official kill. How do you kill him and how does the scoring work?

It's takes three ramps but if you make it up halfway on a ramp it will count also.

I think you defeat him by getting a super on the guillotine ramp after 3 main ramps

Yup.

Gotta shoot 3 ramps and then hit the guillotine

Awesome. Thanks.

Maybe Spooky should put some instructions on the screen with indicators on how many more to go like other monster for him and Cold Ethyl?
