Quoted from northerndude:

Yup, my pin issues don’t have me troubled as far as not still being a Spooky cheerleader. I have to fix things, (not tweak) that blows, but I’m a big boy and I’ll figure it out here.

If you need help with the coin door lock, hit me up.

Don’t you just get a whole new machine when that happens???

#4053 1 year ago

Lol, I loosened the door and removed the top bolt. Tried to push cab decal back down flat but it bubbles back up today.
I’ll maybe try something else tonight or tomorrow

You probably know this already but in case not… Try heating it up slightly dryer lift it up and re seat it

I totally agree with this. Silence = acceptance.

Literally no one on the forum is saying anyone should be silent about issues. We were all responding to a guy who came on here ranting rather than attempting to have a meaningful discussion.

Quoted from pinheadpierre:

I think the car analogy is a good one. Nobody expects things that cost 7k+ to chronically require end users to complete the design and manufacturing process to have a product that functions well.

I've been thinking about this and I don't think a new car is a valid analogy. Cars are manufactured by companies with thousands of employees, on assembly lines with hundreds of robots (which by the way WILL kill us some day), and sold to tens of thousands of customers. So yes, they are near perfect. Pinball, on the other hand is basically a boutique industry that hand manufactures a few thousand (or less) very complex and very expensive toys. To equate pinball with cars, I think you'd need to go back to the 1930s, or maybe the Yugo

Ok, fair enough. That still doesn’t validate an industry standard of incomplete initial build development and using paying customers as guinea pigs to figure out how to finish your product.

Trouble is you're in the wrong thread for that here...

I guess some people just not grasping the bootique principle very well. First quarter of the run are prototypes, really. Raise issues by all means. Try not to be an arse in doing it.

Easy

Completely disagree! A product is a product is a product. Whether you pay $0.10 for something or $1M, the fact is that any company producing any product has to produce the best product they can for their consumers (and if mistakes are made, listen to feedback, improve and grow from that feedback). Yes, pinball is a "boutique" industry but it also has a bunch of folks basically saying "It's cool if you guys send us products that are faulty, we can fix the smaller problems" HENCE why these companies continue to ship out products with faulty parts in them (because they're cheaper for them). Stop the enabling. We're paying a LOT OF MONEY for these products, you need to stand up and demand that they produce them properly, not make excuses for them. I work VERY HARD for that money. PS: Once again, I stress...this is NOT about SPOOKY! They are the one company that I see in pinball that does what I just stated above. Even if mistakes pop up in their machines, they LISTEN and ADJUST and SHIP out better product. Unlike some others.

Have you bought a Stern lately?? Pmsl

Difference is Spooky don't seem to act like the stereotypical greedy capitalist.

If they were you'd be paying like 10k for a game of RaM quality. For the base model. JJP teritory.

given those parameters, it sounds as though pinball craftsmanship should be on par with that of the worlds finest artisans. i dont understand how you can use that statement as an excuse for a lack of proficiency in manufacturing.

I wasn't making a statement about lack of proficiency in pinball manufacturing, just that the way a car is manufactured is not the same as the way a pinball machine is manufactured, so it's not a good comparison imo.

Quoted from hawkmoon:

SPOOKY,Will you please have these small things fixed!!!I have had it with buying a new pin and have to do modifications just to get the pin to play correctly!! Now pay attention here SPOOKY,these are the reasons we are going with SPOOKY,now,because Stern can't put out a pin that works from the factory! AP blew it with "Houdini" and "Willy Wonka" was not that good either!! Thanks!!

Dude... I heard ya the first time lol.

He also asked that you let me give you some money for a R&M pre-order, please.

Wow. If cars were cobbled together the way pinball machines are, I would never drive above 25mph out of fear for my life.

#4070 1 year ago

Some money, not stupid money.

In all seriousness, Soulstoner needs to contact the distributors and get on the wait list. Not everyone is looking to make money when they back out of a spot. I got my preorder in February and was offered a second spot in early June. Neither were going to cost an extra $3K.

That's a great idea, thank you for the suggestion. I think I'm a bit more limited being in Canada though.

At the risk of sleeping on the couch after every holiday, for the rest of my life, that is how I would make out all her cards.

Not a fan of "pinstadium" at all, myself. That thing is totally killing the look of the game with its over the top couloured washout.

Pickle Rick looks Great though!

I like the first one better, i can see the lit inserts better.

This game is all about the inserts.

#4083 1 year ago
Quoted from Dantesmark:

Which is better?[quoted image][quoted image]

Not a crappy misleading camera shot in the dark maybe. The first one looks alot better! . But, also no point in taking pictures, when they are not indicative of real life. The second one looks drowned and awful to me.

In real life they are totally unnecesary, actually for me they detract and are a pita.

At least in your first camera shot the art colour and inserts can actually be seen clearly. Try fixing the exposure on your camera for more indicative and representative images to compare. That might be an idea.

That striping on the right ramp is TERRIBLE. Def the first pic.

Get the omegas if you need to kill the light show on this game

The first one. It has atmosphere.

I’d rather play a colorful universe than R&M in the Matrix.

Honest question guys... have you ever played a game with pin stadiums on them?

I'll take "without pinstadiums" for 100, alex.

I agree that a few spotlights is all this needs. Pinstadiums completely ruin the look.

Yes, I have them on my Shadow and think they look great, but for R&M which is lights show dependent... variations and movement in color and brightness, it doesn’t work (in my opinion).

Really? So do me a favor... take your ps off shadow and stick them on r&m, then give me your opinion.

Quoted from Dantesmark:

Yep, I have. I wasted money on One Set, just to try. Never again. They are overpriced fluff that detracts from most Good games.

Customised support lighting is Waaay cheaper to impliment, and works Much better in a variety of aspects, imho.

TNA and RaM definately are two games Specifically, on which pinstadium will destroy completely a major aspect of the game, because of the way that RGB GI is utilised. No question!

Alien is another.

Maybe I can appreciate Atmosphere.

Maybe I have sensitive eyes ...

Customised support lighting is cheaper, and better.

So you spend 8k+ on a pinball machine, but think an extra $250 to have the ability to see the beautiful artwork clearly is overpriced fluff?
I get thats its not everyones cup of tea, but why poo poo it? Hell its won two twipys for best mod if i rickall.

*** Pay $250 to ruin the 8k game you mean?

Those things should really come in a kit that includes a Welding Shield!

Not poo pooing

You posted, people give opinion. Many people don't really like it.... obviously they are all bad people because they don't like a washed out horrible look of their great game the way you obviously do. If you don't want feedback then maybe try not posting?

It's all subjective, no need to take it all personal like.

If you really like it, that is Great, for you! ... just that not everyone likes the same, don't get feisty at people not flocking behind you, no problems!

I can see the game, no problems. Cheers

Also, I think the Pickle Rick is Great!!

I am hoping we may see some factory lighting like Spooky used with AMH again.

Tried them on my Alien, so desperately wanted it to work since the SEs are so dark but it completely washed everything out. Not to mention you have to cut them up in order to fit around the ramps, unless you mount them on the glass.

Hopefully this is one of those “the picture doesn’t do it justice.”moments.

#4099 1 year ago

Oof, I agree...I find Pinstadium is an overpriced product, in reality you can make a set for about $30-$40 minus the controller, which I doubt is very expensive.

6 ft section of aluminum angle for under $10 and a couple LED strips and some what, velcro? Call it a day!
Hell, I'd sink magnets in and do that if I were to mimic it.

Now, I am a super novice, I'm only now restoring my second game, but I much prefer a few strategically placed smaller LED strips or spot lights to add lighting than something that I have to separately remove every time I lift the play field.
Cost is real too, but some people have more money than others and most have more than me!

Reality is, do whatever blows up your skirt :3

Here's my LAH with several additional LED strips. My wife calls it the "seizure machine" between the expanded GI and the over 9000 strobes...still has some dark spots in the picture, but that's camera magic.
