Quoted from Ilushka85:
barryj i submitted a ticket online for support and have not heard back from anyone. Also with the cabs being smaller is there a way to at least recenter the lock down bar mechanism so it is offset properly for the smaller width?
I asked the same question, as the gap in my machine is significant. Barry's response was the same as what Josh posted - gently bang it to the center.
It's not a perfect solution and I think that AP should correct for this by adding the hard plastic bumpers that vireland said came installed on AfMr's.
That said, it only took one firm whack from my palm to center the lockbar. Not sure whether I have to do that every time I replace the lockbar. Either way, it's not tragic.
I really enjoy the game and suspect that the small QC issues will be resolved over time. In addition to the lockbar, a free-floating screw was bouncing around the playfield (no scratching/damage) upon unboxing and the LED reflector came off after the first few games. In the future, a real manual and not a photocopied partial manual would be great and the speakers are really bad, but can be improved with the subwoofer. All of these things are minor nits, especially because of some of the smart decisions AP made in designing the game.
Offsetting the legs in front and back is incredibly smart, the machine is super-solid, and the artwork is just incredible. I really like the glass guides that prevent nicking and MDF shards like the small ones I have on my WOZRR. The gameplay gets better and better with Josh's releases, so overall I'm happy with the purchase and play. Yes, some shots are tight, but I'm no rockstar player and I can hit most of the shots reliably now that there are a 300 plays on the machine...just took some practice.
They're expensive toys and we want them be both perfect and customized for each of our wants/needs/desires, which is largely impossible. I'd encourage anyone that's on the fence about this game to go ahead, pull the trigger, and don't read too much into the small stuff posted on Pinside!
