    Anyone have idea why arcade1up would deliberately sit on the patch rather than release it? Seems an odd direction to go...

    So I finally got around to assembling my A1Up Williams. I have to say, I'm really pleased! I think my expectations were managed by some of the earlier posts, and not having much experience with virtual pins, I was pleasantly surprised! I managed to get mine before the price jump, so all in all, I'm happy for the price I got it for, cheers!

    I'm guessing, though, there's no way to change the in-game settings, like number of balls per game? (All I'm seeing are adjustments for display options.)

    Also, has anyone thrown led flipper buttons onto theirs?

    So, you haven’t tried Whitewater?

    I upgraded my flipper buttons to actual arcade buttons, moved the solenoids to the apron, and replaced the plexiglass with tempered glass. For $30 it’s total worth making those upgrades.

    Cheers, thx! I did get tempered glass, but want to do the haptics mod tonight before putting the glass on, thx! Thanks for the advice, I'll follow up on flipper buttons.

    Interestingly, I did try white water just to see how awful it actually was... I was actually able to play it for a bit, and only ran into some glitchy problems when I ended up in a two-ball multiball. I suspect my lack of any experience with actual standard/higher end virtual pinball (save a single game of Data East Star Trek 25th in the virtual pin at PBHoF) probably biases me in favor of this machine. In this regard (and likely others as well) I fall under the umbrella of ignorance being bliss.

    Cheers and thanks again!

    I picked up an AFM last weekend and finally got a chance to play last night. Two questions one is there any way to make the back legs higher like we obviously do on a real pin or do I just need to stand closer to the screen and adjust my playing stance since everything would be flat? Not a biggy just wondering. Second question is there an adjustment for the noise the flippers make after you hit them as I noticed it’s about a second or two delay until you hear the normal noise from the flippers? I see you can turn solenoids off or on in the adjustments menu.

    Read my earlier posts, as that is my biggest gripe with this machine. No way to adjust this, but fingers crossed it will be fixed in the patch once it’s released.

    Thanks I read back through the majority of your posts on this and other things. Good information and agreed with you the late flipper noise is very annoying. I'll try to tune my mind out of listening for it all the time.

    Anyone want a brand new assembled afm? 2 hours west of downtown Chicago.

    Quoted from noysboy:

    I just went through lightly, then heavily modding one of these, since I couldnt deal with the flipper lag and wanted more tables.
    1) started off with the stock Arcade1UP AFM
    2) Replaced the CPU unit with a Windows PC - needed a ldvs adapater board. (ebay.com link: itm)
    3) added a 21.5" lcd monitor for backglass (amazon.com link »)
    This all worked well. Used pinup popper to install VPX and games played great! NO perceptible lag with the stock 24" display.
    4) replaced the 24" playfield monitor with a 1080p 31.5" monitor (amazon.com link »)
    This took some cabinet mods to support it, but it just barely fits and looks great.
    I still need to get a piece of tempered glass, but everything is up and running and total cost for everything (not including the PC, since I already had that laying around), was right at $1.1K. Figure maybe $500 for a PC and its a nice little Virtual pin for the game room.
    Of course, it was a lot of work...certainly not plug 'n play

    Can you put any of the virtual pins on it such as the 50th Bond game and Goonies?

    Saw some of your modded arcade cabinets, any chance you may get into modding their pins like someone did earlier in thread?

    I’d like to get into doing them next year. Have too many video mods I want to do first and Christmas mad rush is right around the corner. Spending my down time breaking down the pins in my work room and organizing to make it a work room again. Last year I was building games in my game room. Man I really need a garage.

    NIIIIIICE Thanks for the heads-up!

    I imagine this still won't stop AFM from kicking my ass as usual, however.

    #771 1 day ago

    Updated the firmware without incident... Whitewater and Junkyard are vastly improved... That's as far as I've gotten for now...

    Quoted from Ericpinballfan:

    It's not bad. You'll need a PC or laptop that can connect to the PCB through the removable panel in the back using a microUSB cable... Then download the patch and a small software interface, and just follow the PDF instructions. Took me maybe 10 minutes in all...

    #773 23 hours ago

    New video on YouTube. You can load the games from all three tables on any table. Just not all at one time.

    #774 23 hours ago

    Does the update fix the lag?

    Thank you. That's great information.
    So, it's different than updating sterns and colordmd,which is just a usb stick.

    Yeah... I was hoping for a USB plug and play, but it definitely wasn't designed quite for that, apparently. Still, a few hoops, but nothing insurmountable.

    chillme - Yes, the lag in White Water definitely resolved, at least for me. *WHEW* (Thanks to OutlawTorn304 for the heads-up about the patch release!)

    #777 14 hours ago

    The apparent fixes. There is also an easy to follow instructional video on how to update the software here --

    Just a heads up, apparently you can load the wrong update and actually play the other games. May want to google it.

    any idea if you can backup what's on their now so you keep high scores? Say I wanted to swap back and forth between Star Wars and Marvel, for example, but keep high scores. Anyone tried it?

    #780 4 hours ago

    Copied from another post. I don’t have a game so can’t test this.

    “ Can confirm working, plug in pc the way a1up instructs you, flip the switch on the bottom of pcb, power on the pinball with pc connected. there is a usb driver that you have to load. Then you run the baller.ps1 file again, run option 2 , then option 1, then install the 3 table packs, then your done. Unplug everything flip switch back. And you got all 30”

    See my post above. Sounds like this one can install all 30 games.

    #782 3 hours ago

    I tested this last night. There is not enough room to store all 30 tables. I have the Marvel tables on the AFM currently and everything works as it should. I grabbed all files so I can switch back and forth with the laptop.

    #783 3 hours ago

    Great news!!! So pumped!! Arcade mojo just to clarify are you saying we can have all 30 games loaded up and accessible all at once on AFM?? That would be pretty dang cool

    Ahhh I see. Thanks! So you can only have 10 at a time installed I guess?

    I didn’t try 20. You might have to customize
    Something to get it to work correctly. Not my image but someone claims to have it working. I had to uninstall drivers on my PC to get it to transfer.

    Did you try doing the way I copied this morning?
    “ Can confirm working, plug in pc the way a1up instructs you, flip the switch on the bottom of pcb, power on the pinball with pc connected. there is a usb driver that you have to load.
