Back to what this thread should be about....

Melissa from CT said Friday my Alien would be in and shipped out shortly after.

#17639 1 year ago

I have one on the way as well.

#17871 1 year ago

I don’t see a bag of fuses in mine either.

#17873 1 year ago

The lack of instructions in putting this together is kinda weird. What’s best way to attach the backbox?

#17875 1 year ago

I got it. Thanks for the offer. I might need a pic of how the Ball launch button is hooked up. Mine isn’t functional right now

#17876 1 year ago

This is my ball launch mech. Doesn’t light up. Doesn’t plunge. Has those two extra electrical connections at the bottom. Bet something came loose. Have about 5 unused wires but tried hooking one up and the game went all dark. Anyone have a pic of theirs?

Quoted from delt31:

Ok when I get home I'll take a pic! Do your backbox and side lights work bc if so tell me the fuses you have in there....

They do - everything seems to be working. Found the right alligator clip to plug into that launch mech. It’s not lighting up though yet but at least it lights up.

You’ll have to walk me thru checking the fuses for you.

#17896 1 year ago

I got the single coin mech (European) door for some reason.

#17898 1 year ago
Quoted from way2wyrd:

Does anyone's ball launch light up?

Mine does not currently.

#17942 1 year ago

I passed this along to Delt31 but others might have same issue. If you increase the lights / LED’s to max in the menu it seems to shut them off. I bet that solves his back box and side lights issue he is having.

Other than getting a European Coin door with no mechs and a clip falling off my ball launch button I’m pretty pleased with how I received the game. Documentation leaves a little to be desired as I recieved Dialed In LE yesterday as well and wow everything is documented.

Also a big thumbs up to cointaker for using FedEx Freight. Super fast and professional. Much better than other Freight companies.

#17959 1 year ago

This game has such an immersive feel for a pinball machine. The theme, music and atmosphere are really unique. It’s got some issues like balls feeding from the trough and the shooter not always getting the ball up every time but certain shots are so much fun.

Plus the start of Ambush / Xeno Head has to be one of the best use of Theme toys seen to date. Awesome.

#18292 1 year ago

Geez this thread should be called, [deleted my Staff]

Helmut reaches out to me as well this morning to help my launch button light and get me a US coin door. That was quicker then JJP to address my minor Dialed In issues. That’s got to say something.

Quoted from toasterman04:

Hey guys, if anyone wants to do beacon lights I ordered a set when I had the game on order and they are sitting in my shop. I will sell them for $20 Canadian for the two. Plus shipping. Let me know if interested.

Ship to US?

Helmut Fromm Heighway called this morning. Adressed all my minor issues. Is sending some replacement plastics, and other things to me this week. I’ve had zero issues with my Alien ownership thus far. It’s become the favorite game in my little lineup so far.

Anyone know where I can find the 1.2 game code. Apparently my google Kung Fu is still asleep this morning.

#22261 12 months ago

Thanks guys! Found it.
