Quoted from epthegeek:

Wild. I did add the new champ score videos to the attract, but they’re not any different than the rest of the video the game uses.

Yeah, when video playback dies it ALL dies. Full screen playback and the playback in the interdimensional cable TV.

#5652 76 days ago
Quoted from epthegeek:

Here's something you could discuss: Anybody have ideas for good clips to use for collecting an extra ball (when you collect it, we already have the robot to serve it) or locking balls in the ship?
I've been over the show a few times looking for stuff and haven't really found the right thing. Found the slam save clip on one of those passes, but still don't have anything for those other two things though.

I don’t mean to add to your pain, and I’m not too familiar with the code thus far, but was thinking the vats of acid, season 4, ep. 8, could provide good ball lock clips. Rick & Morty hide in the vats to escape danger (each lock) and then come busting out to go on the attack when they have to, i.e., multiball time!

#5653 76 days ago
Quoted from epthegeek:

For anybody having video issues like this:
- Do you force restart often with the start button?
- Do you skip videos with a double flip frequently?
Not able to recreate this issue locally yet, so I’m curious what detail I might be missing.

I have not been forcing restarts. for me, the skipping/not playing seems to occur after playing [x] number of games (x being a random number). I've also left the machine on, looping through the attract mode videos and after a while it starts to stutter and ultimately stop playing them (in both attract mode and during games). as zaphX has mentioned, a shutdown and restart always clears the issue (for awhile)

I had it happen to me whether I've skipped (or not skipped the videos) using the flipper buttons. it just seems to occur after so many games / videos have been played. it starts with the videos stuttering and eventually they just don't play at all.

#5654 76 days ago
Quoted from zaphX:

I do not force restart but I do hammer start from the match sequence.
I almost always skip the videos during gameplay as quickly as I can.
For me the video problem seems to manifest after it has been running a few hours in attract mode.

Same.
I have never forced a restart, but usually start a new game before match sequence is finished. I'm about 50/50 with watching mode start clips.

My friend has an early build, running same code, but has a different motherboard and is not having these issues. Could that be something to look at?

#5655 76 days ago
Quoted from epthegeek:

Possibly - but you’d need a particularly wide shot of the car to be able to have something to pan from.

I’ll see if I can find something with a wide shot that could potentially work.

#5656 76 days ago

When they changed motherboards, did the specs of the memory or processor change?

#5657 76 days ago

To those already in possession of their game: Is there any content from The Ricklantis Mixup? Hands down, my favorite episode. Seems like a shootout at the Creepy Morty would make a fun mode. Hoping my number is on the line by spring/summer 2021!

#5658 76 days ago
Quoted from epthegeek:

I am now officially sorry I asked.

It's certainly been a teaching moment that picking clips requires both art and science.

That said, I'm persuaded the audio callout "lick lick lick my balls" should be in the game if isn't already (perhaps when ball three is served to the plunger after lock two).

It's definitely in the game already! No other game comes close to R&M when it comes to callouts.

It's definitely in there, I believe it happens randomly when you hit the Rick standup.

It’s there. Heard for the first time and made lol. If this game wasn’t so damn funny, I probably would’ve sold it already.

Yeah, maybe so.
Quite often things that I think sound good in my mind don’t translate well outside of my head.

Great code moment.....beat blood dome and saw a shot flashing purple (after the mode completed). I hit it successfully and was greeted with a Mortal Kombat flawless victory nod along with morty doing a head ripper ala sub zero in mortal kombat. It was freaking awesome.

blood dome is probably the easiest mode (for me at least) to complete. backhanding the right ramp and the right side of the U loop is like butter

Quoted from epthegeek:

The animation is so simple, you could basically cut the car and them out of a closeup and paste it into a wide shot empty background of something else. Yes it would be a lot of work, but the raw materials are there.

#5672 76 days ago

Here's a final round of lighting fun, pics of purple frosted strips on left and right undersides of the backbox- lights up the cool hinges and adds some nice purple light to part of the artwork in a dark room. 8in green strip on the back facing the wall to compliment the green speaker lights during attract mode & puts off a nice green backbox glow.
Put a color changer in both scoops, short vid of that below, I think it looks great in the main scoop, but the lower left one doesn't make as dramatic of an effect because of the closer proximity and angle you have to put the bulb. I ended up putting a blue in there for now to have a nice blue glow from the hole, pic of that below, & put the color changer on the magna save button it looks cool.
Tapped a 1ft green 12v strip off of one of the topper green flashers and put it on the bottom of the cab between the speaker and the front. It adds a nice flashing effect whenever portal is lit and you can see vid of it during attract mode below. Its a helpful notification around your feet that the portal is lit if you're busy looking down, however until everyone gets better at hitting the portal it might cause too much epilepsy and fall into the category of one of those bad good ideas!?(: Anyway its been fun adding some extras to an already amazing game, but its going to be even more fun now just playing!!

New question for the guys who have issues with the video dropping out -- do you trap up often? Trigger the "FACTS report?

#5674 76 days ago
Quoted from epthegeek:

I trap up often but not usually long enough to bring up the instant info.

I really think it just happens when the machine is left idle for a period of time, I will try and power it up without playing (difficult!) to confirm this.

We can't re-create this on either motherboard version currently in the wild, so far.

epthegeek I had a quick look for a wide shot, then found this scene in rick potion #9 (even better!). I think it's on point (just after 8 minutes into the episode)...

First part of the animation could even be split to focus on either Rick or Morty during the run to the car. What do you think?

**Spoiler** is the word you were looking for Jerry

#5679 76 days ago
Quoted from delt31:

Haha. Nice. Well I agree - it does come up a lot. I don’t recall what episode it’s from either or why you would need to check your teeth but if you end up finding out why, good one to replace with more variety ; )
Evil morty!
Doofus Rick!
Cheers

You would go and get your teeth checked to confirm what reality you are in. Different realities, different teeth. Doesn't Rick keep a dental chart for this? Lol

The full quote might help you with context:

" ... Uh oh, you might be in a new reality, go get your teeth checked!"

.... so like identifying with dental records, except confirming you are actually where (dimension/reality) you thought you were (or not).

I hope that helps for you.

Here’s the two scoops with the 555 sockets mounted, used a 555 flex slow color changer bulb from Comet, the main scoop up top I used an arm extension I had from Mezelmods to be able to get the socket with flex bulb in the right spot to shine up the scoop. On both I just used an existing screw on the scoop hardware.

Ok!
I put the new code in two days ago and I have produced the “non-clip screen” a few times now.
I played a couple games, went normal.

Went and worked on another pin for an hour or so, left game on, came back and hit start, I get video, but no clips, nothing from an adventure start, no pickle Rick video, No match sequence,

Did you not have video issues on the code it came with? Do you remember what build date the software was?

#5689 76 days ago

My Rick and Morty arrives next week, I was planning on adding Titan rubbers to my pin. As I was looking at their color selection, I was originally planning on going with purple or glow. But I'm wondering if light blue might look good? It's not an obvious choice, however, the blue is an accent color throughout the artwork and might create unity with all of the crystals, Meeseeks, and Cthulhu across the artwork. Thoughts?

I started to fit glow tonight but I’ve decided to reorder a new kit with clear everything and either black or yellow flippers. The reason? The colored lightshow looks best displayed through clear rings, to me.

I’m trying to nail down the correct rubbers, as the Kalaxian Purple kit on Titan has some deviations from stock, and I discovered the fork I made is incomplete.
I’ve got an email in to KT to inquire what the official sizes are.

Quoted from DanQverymuch:

I'd still rather pay extra to have it changed officially at the factory...

Is the quiet fan upgrade gaining any traction? Really excited, but patient

#5692 76 days ago
Quoted from sleepygtr:

Is the quiet fan upgrade gaining any traction? Really excited, but patient

Meanwell will do it (I asked them about it on Spike and Spooky machines specifically), but Spooky has to ask and commit to buying X amount of fans from them to get the Meanwell ones stock with a quiet fans pre-installed after an engineering review. From a prior conversation I had with Charlie when I first started looking into finding a solution for the terrible Spooky power supply fans, I wouldn't say he was excited about the idea. However, ANYONE that has heard the difference is likely very excited to have the vacuum cleaner in the cabinet turned off.

So, unless you hear otherwise, I would say don't hold your breath. (But I really hope they do offer that upgrade one day, or change to a better power supply with a thermal switch for the fan so it doesn't run all the time)

#5693 76 days ago

Love this game, but I done broke mine. I was rearranging my game room, to put R&M in a better spot. I used a lift, so , no dragging. Turned it on, no video but game was working so I thought, maybe,it will fix itself, and played 1 game that seemed to have no issues, other than no video. Turned it off, then back on. Now all LED's are on (white), but it does not come up, and the LCD, turns itself off because no video. I kept messing with it, hoping what I was seeing wasn't right, but the CPU board was not turning on. I have a ATX power supply tester, so I was able to confirm proper power at the board, but nothing. Spooky agrees, that it is the CPU board. I don't know if it was support telling me this, or I read it somewhere so if incorrect i apologize. But at some point before my #156 was made The CPU boards they were using got discontinued and a new part was found. But now there has been a few people with cpu boards that just die. There are none in stock at right now at Spooky. Hopefully by next week but I'm not sure they have an exact ETA, who knows, they may be looking for another option. I know they may have great big box full of them in production, but they do not belong to support.

So what to do in the mean time? Well, I'd like to improve the sound of the Sub. I've seen a couple of posts that say it might be improved by adding an enclosure, but I have not seen where anybody actually has tried it to report if it helped. I'm not an audiophile, but I can google and this is what I'm gonna do. I don't know if everyone will get the same part, but mine came with GRS 10sw-4 you may need to look up the specs for whatever you do have. A GRS 10SW4 Is designed to be in an "Acoustic Suspension" enclosure A pin cab is an "Infinite Baffle" enclosure and will have poor sound, and will likely have a short life span, because there is no box to give your Sub it's spring. It should be in a box of a bit more than 2 cubic feet. That works out to a cube of 15.2 inches on each side. You can alter the shape as long as the volume stays the same. Sealed boxes can have issues of standing waves, which can degrade the sound so you should buy some acoustic batting to line the inside of the box. I think I shall make it look as if it were a microverse battery. Nobody will see it, I'll know it's there.
I was wondering why R&M has no sub box, when TNA did. To be my own devils advocate, they may have to switch to a different Sub for supply chain issues, and would need the box tweaked for best results.

The Kalaxian purple rubbers kit, is different to stock. I think it was only one or two differences. Because, some are not available for Kalaxian purple, but you can make the substituted ones work. But I decided that Clear is probable the best for that light show. SO i didn't order them, The glow in the dark ones may be good too, I might give those a shot.

I bought an enclosure for a 10" sub ( really cheap on ebay) , put an old pioneer 10" sub in it that I've had for years from my car stereo days, and connected it to the amp. Works great, and none of the rattles that are a problem if you drive the cabinet speaker too hard.

Yeah I did a mod of that kit and thought I undid the modification correctly (replacing the 2 round rubber sub with a 7/16 to match the 1/2 of the original.) But I messed up and I'm clearly missing some. I can't delete the kit from Titan but I did make a note that it's incomplete while I try to get the proper sizes down. I want to mimic the original design intent.

On another topic, rattles, I am starting to make some improvements:

- I removed the black glass channel from the back of the box and put fuzzy velcro inside it on the top AND bottom. That guide now fits snugly.
- I added some thicker weatherstripping to the backbox where the glass rests and to the metal plate where it rests against the wood.
- I put 3 layers of anti rattle tape on the glass.

Right now I think the only rattles I get are from the playfield parts themselves, and just the sound of the air escaping the cabinet vent. However I plan to remove the anti rattle tape - it's visible peeking out - and replace with more fuzzy velcro added inside the plastic glass channels on the sides.
