Quoted from Pinball-Obsessed:

I’ve never had one issue on mine and there’s 800+ Games on my machine.
Hope I didn’t just jinx it.

after about 10 games, mine finally starting having issues. Ball got stuck a few times, so I bent the end down slightly.. now it's a crapshoot between rolling back to the 3rd flipper and going all the way around the orbit shot. I'm tempted to cut the end of the rail slightly (and bend the loop down slightly) so it both has plenty of space to fall down, but also guarantees it bounces against a wall to slow it down. My only concern is that once I make any cut, it'll expose bare steel which means either I attempt to paint the end the same color as the powdercoat, or have it re-powder coated (which doesn't seem to be worth the cost).

Worst case I have the pinball life shooter mod as backup.

Quoted from sataneatscheese:

I am really happy SPOOKY offers the swearing over-ride. My kids are 4,7, and 9. I wouldn't have bought the machine without the option. This weekend, when I traded my TNA the buyers wanted to check out Rick and Morty. I turned on the adult settings, but forgot to turn them off. Fast forward to the next day when my wife is doing laundry downstairs by the pins, and my 4 year old who hovers around her most of the time wants to play pinball. She turns on the machine, he picks out Rick and Morty, and immediately gets a ball stuck. 20 seconds later at max volume... HURRY THE F!@# UP!!! starts repeating. I'm in the dog house until I fix it. Thanks for the option SPOOKY.

Quoted from newovad:

Just wait until the kid explains the roach and rat dismemberment to their teacher from the Pickle Rick mode.

They could’ve also heard Morty being disappointed because he didn’t get to go to Boob World... followed up by Rick saying well too bad because you fucked up!

Call outs are hilarious on this game!

Quoted from snaroff:

I was able to adjust my shooter wireform soon after unboxing my game, so I don't have a dog in this race (as vireland likes to say

Same -- I just bent it open very slightly and turned the power up a couple notches and it's working great. Didn't appear to damage the powder coat at all.

Does anyone know where I can grab 6v from in the backbox? I want to add a LED strip to the topper.

#477 showed up today. I have to say the butter cab was worth the extra 1k. I was skeptical but its pretty incredible looking. Out of the box the game seems to play perfectly. This was my first spooky purchase and I'm really impressed. I love the hard satisfying shots, the layout, the callous and of course the theme. Congrats to Spooky Pinball, you guys are killing it,keep it up.

Mmm...6v might be tough. 5v, 12v, 48v yes. 6v? Don't think so. Where did you get LED strips that are 6v?

You can get 12v and 5v off the small aux power supply to the side of the large power supply in the cabinet. COM/V2 are 12v. COM/V1 on the other side are 5v (COM=ground).

Many specs say 6v (I guess because they are rated up to 6v)...but 5v will work fine. I'm looking at adding something to my topper as well.

You are going to have trouble finding 6v I would think. I would just get some 12v LED strip lighting and use that, easy stuff. They sell it all day on Amazon for cheap and 12v is easily accessible in the game.

If you run 6v LEDs at 5v they won't be as bright. Just get 12v strips. Problem solved.

Meant to say 5v. Whoops! I figured out a workaround. Thanks for the input.

I have a short ceiling in my gameroom so I had to do some trimming on the topper to make it fit. While I was at it...I made some improvements to the topper. Will post a video when I'm all wired up.

#11364 9 months ago

Stopped in Barnes and Noble today. They had Rick and Morty Monopoly. Grabbed it.

Just stole a picture from the Monopoly owners thread. Might be cool to try and do what this guy did on his Monopoly.

I think I like the Flooble Cranks everywhere idea better. Came with a shit load of Gooble boxes too.

Just heard my new favorite call out. Ball drained down the middle with time still on the ball save and Scary Terry said "hiding in the ball trough, bitch?"
LOVE.

Quoted from snaroff:

A few days ago, I mentioned my left ramp being installed in a less-than-optimal location (https://pinside.com/pinball/forum/topic/aw-jeez-official-rick-and-morty-club/page/224#post-6156541).
Since I had the glass off, I decided to see if I could improve it (which I was fortunately able to do). I had to get slightly longer screws (7/8")...for some reason, my ramp was fastened with a 1/2" on the right side and 1/4" on the left side. I was able to scoot the ramp forward and to the right, which opens up the shot and comes closer to aligning/centering it with the Meeseeks insert/arrow.
Hoping this will open up the left ramp shot for me...definitely looks more natural. Need to play test to be sure.
[quoted image][quoted image][quoted image][quoted image]

Made this adjustment tonight and I have to say... the left ramp shot is much more make-able now.

I like what you got! Good job!

I was browsing the Spooky FB page last night and happened to see this and that you sent this to them as well.

Very cool!

This is awesome work!

#11369 9 months ago

Made a few more tweaks.. adjusted the garage shot, the playfield was at 8 degrees so I lowered it back down to 7. Tonight my score went from 4 million to 42 million, what a difference! I was stacking multiballs on top of adventures, it was so good. I love how as you get deeper in the game you get more light shows and soundbites "LOOOooser". I have never loved a game so much in my life.

My post was specifically addressed to Spooky and you took it upon yourself to jump in the middle of it and get snarky. Your unsolicited counsel is not required.

You know how else to address spooky, without let's say another pinsider jumping in to help?

A private email.

Ok, that looks great! So I gotta ask... Are the 2 crystals on either side of the topper extra crystals from inside the game? And did you activate their lighting to coincide with the portal topper lighting?

Also, I noticed that your backlighting changes and matches the lighting on the speakers. Tell us about what you did there!

Again, great job!

481 lives. After about 6 hours of troubleshooting ball trough optos. Swapping opto boards from trough 2 to 1, and endless checks of their harnesses. I even made new harnesses and it still wouldn’t work, even though I knew the boards themselves worked by verifying on trough 2. Finally after pulling both trough 1 and trough 2 harnesses I discovered the trough 1 harness was wired wrong. They didn’t match. Swapped the two incorrect wires to their correct spots and it finally solved my problem and I could actually start my first game 2 days after unboxing. The new harness I had made didn’t work because I went off the existing incorrect trough 1 wiring.

Guess the wires shifted to the incorrect position during shipping.

There’s NO WAY this was played before it left. HOW??? It was wired wrong and wouldn’t start a game at all because ball 1 switch couldn’t possibly work.

Side art on the right side got dinged up pretty bad from the endless raising and lowering of the pf. I was going to route this. That idea is gone. Onto the left flipper sticking now lol.

Hey how about 2 new (correctly) wired opto switch wiring connectors and a new right side inner art for 6 hours of out of the box troubleshooting?

Those crystals are the same ones that are inside the game. I just purchased 2 extras from Spooky. I put a 4 inch white LED strip between the plastics and a blue fire LED behind each crystal to give them that twinkle effect. I also put a blue flasher behind each crystal and tied into the blue flasher by the family targets. The portal spins and flashes green as normal.

As for the backlighting of the game, it's super easy to do. I ordered a RGB LED strip from amazon. All you have to do is tie into the speaker light signal wires (red, green and blue) then the black +12v wire ties into the backbox light strip to provide the power. I do this on all my spooky games so they light up to match whatever color the speaker lights are.

So started to install the pinball life wireform today, couldn't believe I saw the stock wireform with wires bent over underneath. I get every little piece added to the BOM adds cost, but two 1/8 shaft collars at 100piece quantity on ebay are a dollar (maybe you could get them for 25 cents each at 1,000 piece volume). Bent them as straight as I could and it was still difficult to remove, the holes in the playfield must have been undersized.
wireform_bent_over (resized).jpg

Was going to go ahead and screw in the tab mount, only to find the screw hole position is completely different. It's fine, I can drill a new hole but now there's going to be a hole showing (and I also want to take my time to make sure I don't mess up the side rail). If Terry is reading this, it isn't a knock (truly appreciate you making these). Maybe there's a reason he did it on purpose because if he tried matching the existing hole it would have to be really accurate (otherwise you'll have a screw being forced into position), but just know (at least mine) is not a 1 to 1 swap. I do appreciate he has threaded ends that go where the existing bent ones go. It's much easier to push through, and is easily removable in the future.

That Mr Poopy Butthole 'Hat' goes in the old hole, I believe. There was one in my box and it was mentioned in the Item Description when it was up.

#11383 9 months ago
Quoted from toyotaboy:

My wire form came with a small bag that contained a black plastic piece and black screw that I assumed was designed to cover that existing hole, which is what I used it for. Did yours also come with that?

Edit: Oops, I see Guitarded already covered this above. LOL, "Poopy Butthole" hat is a good description.

I wondered what that was.. yea I have it but I'll probably just touch up the wood with a sharpie rather than having a screw and a post for no reason.

I was going to fill the hole and touch it up too, then I remembered the Poopy Butthole hat and said screw it, lol*, and just covered it with that.

*File under overused lols and emojis.

#11386 9 months ago

They actually advertised it as a Mr Poopy Butthole mod in the original advertisement for the wireform.. lol. But yeah, it is designed to cover that hole.

I appreciate the info!! I also bought 2 extra crystals from Spooky as well and they are being shipped with my game. My intent was to replace the plastic cutouts of Rick and Morty with the 1 foot high detailed Mondo figures that I bought a while back. Anyway, the crystals are going to be used in front of them to block what will now be the exposed stand for the portal. I love the way the blue fire LEDs look and the blue flasher is great too!

As for the RGB strip that works with the speakers, I hope you don't mind me copying that. I have ACNC also and was planning on putting some rear and under lighting, but have not gotten around to it yet. This is how I am going to do it.

#11389 9 months ago

For anyone wondering how I hooked up my RGB cabinet lighting, here's what I did.

Purchase this strip from amazon:
amazon.com link »

Hook the red, green and blue wires to your extra RGB connector (must have speaker light kit on your game)

Get your 12v power (black wire on RGB strip from amazon) from the PinballLife accessory board or the yellow wire from your backbox LED strips.

Stick your RGB strip out the backbox and down the center of your game. DONE!

If you want to go the extra mile, get these from amazon as well to make quick disconnects so you can easily unplug when you need to lower your backbox.

Extra wire never hurts to have on hand either...

#11395 9 months ago

I may have done it everyone... I put on the TNA soundtrack, made a prayer to The Danesi and I think I have found the garage shot. It's almost exactly the same spot on the flipper as the left ramp if you are trapped up on my game. Hit 4(!) In a row, while holding a ten month hold in the other arm. It took awhile and I'm terrible at pinball but man does it feel good. Damn this thing flows when you get that shot down and start linking the right ramp to left ramp after.

#11396 9 months ago

Thanks for the birthday wishes... Quick update. #544 works great upon delivery. A few small tweaks will be needed here and there probably but 100% playable as is. Will probably be absent until bedtime tonight, because.... well, you know.20210303_163525.jpg20210303_180842.jpg16148259279306414583006885170104.jpg20210303_180705.jpg

#11397 9 months ago

Nice fuckin' lineup!

Only tweaks I have made were to the sling switches (Hair Triggers!) and I barely moved the bottom edge of the inner loop rail so it doesn't allow rollbacks to go SDTM.

...and the MagnaSave switch. That needed aligning and adjustment to get better performance.

#11398 9 months ago

I've been meaning to write up my thoughts after having the pin for two weeks but I don't have much time in the evening and I'd rather be playing.
