Didn't realize your lamp was different than mine. That's one big cow!
Looks like mine is unavailable. It's called the alien abduction lamp.

Is there a way to get the website in English? So I clicked on PayPal and it went to PayPal in whatever language the website is. Now, all of my PayPal is in that language! I can’t get it back to English!! Lol....any solution?even if I open a whole new window for PayPal it is not in english

Well my shield did the thing again where it goes down and doesn’t raise back up after you destroy a ship. The three lights blink as if it thinks it’s up. I replaced the roller switches a few weeks ago, so it shouldn’t be that. Any thoughts? It gives dirty pool once and then just VUKs to the left habitrail. Power cycling fixes it (not an option during tournaments) and every now and then a following player will have it go up at the start of the ball.

If you run the Motor Bank test, do switches 66 and 67 open and close as expected?

Dear AFM owners.

Could some one tell me where this cable starts?
The ground braid attached one end to the back plate in the picture. Where it starts?
Thanks for any help

Thank you for reply, but the cable isnt long enough . My guess Is that start attached to another ground in the cabinets back . Maybe from top of left back leg.

Finns det ett sätt att få webbplatsen på engelska? Så jag klickade på PayPal och det gick till PayPal på vilket språk webbplatsen är. Nu är all min PayPal på det språket! Jag kan inte få tillbaka det till engelska !! Lol .... någon lösning? Även om jag öppnar ett helt nytt fönster för PayPal är det inte på engelska

You can change language down here.

Did it once go to the Strobe board case? Mine had a broken ground between that case and the rest of the cabinet’s earthing braid from years of flexing as the play field went in/out & up/down. It also had that clear cover I can see in your photo.

Jet Bumper Switch ?

Hi guys, one of my jet bumper switches has failed. According to page 2-38 of the manual the part number for the jet bumper switch is A-12030-3, but I can't seem to find this switch anywhere. Perhaps the switch also has another part number that is more commonly used? Does anyone know where I can buy this switch or what it is called? Thank you

Those very rarely fail. It might just need to be adjusted or the diode replaced. I would try that before replacing the whole switch.

Unfortunately it is the metal contact nipple that has worn out, so I need a new switch?

Does anyone know where I can get a suitable switch ?

Have issue with my anypin nvram - they don't save time. Any ideas how to fix it? or i need to put battery for save time?

As far as i know NVRAM doesn't save time.Battery does.

This is why I don't use nvram.

i don't know about this. it's important for AFM and other games where saves date and time for leaderboards.

#383 2 years ago

I'm back baby!!! I traded out a beautiful restored AFM and now a deal has surfaced for the very same game to come back. So out with my SW LE and in with AFM, which I consider to be the greatest pin and most influential pin of all time!!! Not leaving now...

#384 2 years ago

THe wood between the drop target and the scoop is damaged and only half as thick as it should be. I think it is causing switch issues because the lock registers at times when the saucer scoop is shot. Any ideas as to how to repair that? I tried wood filler when I first got the game and that survived less than a handful of games.

Was going to sell .My AFM HUO original for the remake . Change of heart .

No way on earth would I sell a HUO AFM to buy a remake

Good decision to keep it!

#388 2 years ago

I cashed out on mine for $$$$ right before the remake was announced. Sooooooo glad I did as the remake is as perfect as you can get. I bought the standard and very happy with it . Just some light tuning and it plays like a rocket.

Thank god for the Remake. Bringing AFM pricing back down to earth. Bringing home a documented one owner HUO AFM this Friday. Unboxed an AFMR LE with a friend last week, playfield fell into to cabinet before we could even get the legs on. Carriage bolts were so loose the pin fell off inside during transit. Topper bolts didn't line up, flippers too strong, shoot around was bent etc etc.
Check the AFMR technical thread.

Yep nothing better than a unfaded silkscreened original imo. Ive never played a remake that played as well as mine. Good buy

Ive own'd 3 originals and now one standard edition AFM...... two where HUO and id say your wrong because you never played mine.

Personally I'm only interested in original titles. Low play survivors, pref HUO. There's so few left and rarity imparts value. The remakes are really impressive with the great lighting, giant display with updated graphics and the topper is really cool. But IMO they're not made as well (I've had one) and don't fit in my small collection.
When that HUO AFM popped up in Oregon recently I had to jump on it. The original owner ordered a bunch of extra parts with it in March of '96 when purchased new.
Fully populated ramps(NOS orig. still in package), spare saucer gate assembly, spare stroke of luck ball shooter assembly(weldment), many spare stand up targets, a spare martian, and more.
Will drop a color DMD and some leds in it.

Maybe so but i still perfer original and will go out of my way to find a nice original over a remake

#396 2 years ago

Heres my very nice basically huo afm. It sat in storage from around 1997-2010. Then was set up in friends basement rarely played until i purchased it years ago. Truly a nice original survivor that plays amazing. And the unfaded silkscreened cab is gorgeous. 20161115_111626 (resized).jpg20160902_042121 (resized).jpg20160902_100143 (resized).jpg20160902_042153 (resized).jpg
