Quoted from ManyQuarters:

Cool to know what your wife's mods are!
What may get women interested in pinball need not be a mystery and can only help out with the cause.

I'll take some pics later but this is the beautiful example I bought for her. I'm lucky she loves pinball and even plays tournaments with me,in 2019 she played around 90 ifpa sanctioned tournaments.

#752 10 months ago

She added an octopus in the back right corner,a shark on the front pop bumber and the octopuses for a topper that over hang and look really cool imo she also affixed her trophies on top.i plan to get her some side blades for her birthday she's been eyeing.

Hey great that your wife shows some fun and dedication to the cause! She will love the art blades and they really brighten up the playfield.

When my new girlfriend gets beyond the "You have how many games at your place now!?" and starts playing them...well I'll get more dedicated!

Looks like you have a nice example too,I definitely need to order them side blades. Whats up with your pop bumper caps? They look cool.

Thanks! Really like this game, great player, what with the dual red - blue GI's, Williams sound board and flippers, Bally timed drop targets, outrageous lit pop up ball saver, Farrah Fawcett hair babes riding dolphins guarding a pile of underwater gold...Wow! Atlantis just begs for more than just a makeover!

My octopus pop bumper caps are from Fathom but in keeping with the dual red - blue GI I kept the bumper surrounds red and also installed blue bumper skirts. The upper playfield is lit with teal bendies and fades into blue led's midfield. I'm still experimenting and waiting for delivery of Jody's blue sub ramp but today installed new flipper mechs with clear green bats.

[Interesting to note the factory blue paint smudge on the playfield artwork, the right eye of the babe between the flippers! Kind of gives a little accidental edge to Her and the Machine! I like it!]

Hi all. I made 3 illuminated Atlantis subs and have sold two so one is left. It is $85 plus shipping if anyone is interested.

These are 3D printed, sanded and painted and then illuminated from inside. I do my best to sand these for painting but they aren't perfect. I use the two color green and blue color changing paint so it is kind of irridescent looking. It fits on the existing clips so no new hardware needed. It includes a #555 so you can plug it into a nearby socket. It also has an actual fin on top!

I decided to put the one I bought in the wife's machine for valentines day and SHE LOVES IT!!! I didnt realize until after install it matches the sub on the translite.

#759 9 months ago

This 3rd one is sold!

I may make more if there is enough interest. I'd like to get at least three so I can make a batch for painting, etc. They are a pain to make!

Anyone know where I can find the tourney rom for this? I saw on a video that there is one out there that locks the progressive jackpot in to make it balanced for tourney play. Thanks in advance!

As far as I know there is only one file available.
Atleast there is only one file in PinMame.

Thank You to Blubboman for the awesome new sub. It fits perfectly and is much sturdier than the old flimsy (and duct taped) one. The blue green metallic paint is cool and the lighting effects really add to the playfield illumination. I wired a lamp socket plug in beneath the playfield from the closest pop bumper so that the sub is always lit.

Also, Thank You to JodyG for the new reproduction teal colored ramp bowl. It fits perfectly, looks great and is a huge improvement over the sorry state that mine was in. It had been repaired several times over the years, with rivets in the wrong place (joining the ramp with the bowl?), fatigued, broken and poorly shaped metal tabs and at some point black duct taped!

In addition to all the previous work, I've since added clear, blue lighted coin slots, clear flipper bands, a complete set of translucent rubbers and colour matching transparent star posts. The translucent rubber takes on the colour of the adjacent leds and star posts and allows more light to the playfield, with the clear bands enhancing the look of the green transparent flippers.

Thanks for add, I really like the bumper caps, are they still available somewhere? Mine are all red. Ron

#765 7 months ago

New to the group, just got a Atlantis and cabinet is in rough shape. From what I see it has all the common issues. I have not read all the posts/ replies but is anybody doing the apron decals? Thanks Ron

#766 7 months ago

Congrats Ron! Awesome, undervalued game and takes well to customizing!

The blue octopus bumper caps are from Fathom, mine were from Marco but are out of stock presently. Art blades are something to consider for Atlantis. Apron decals I haven't heard of but you can download nice apron cards for free:

Thanks Manyquarters for welcome and info. I’m looking forward to this project. I’ve already ordered a Sub from Dan, this going to be a challenge for sure. Ron

Looks like I have the same light relay board problem also, since both wires at 1 and 2 can I solder them together and on the back of the board also? Tks Ron

Just picked one of these up, man what a fun pin!

abagwell Did you ever find the tourney rom? And how to install it?

Would love to be able to hard code the jackpot and divide scoring by 10.

I have two more sub mods together. These are a direct swap for the production sub but are lighted. I'm still trying to improve the overall quality of these - not quite what I want yet but getting there. Still $85 plus shipping. Let me know if you are interested.

I had a plastic cam break for my Atlantis Saucer Kicker mechanism, so the ball would get stuck in the hole during play. I could not find the plastic cam for sale anywhere so I designed one using CAD SW and 3d printed it. So far it is working fine. Anyway, I thought that I would share with the group. If anyone is interested I could get the .stl file to you so that you can print your own cams. In the image, the black cam is the original (hairline crack) and the blue one is the 3d printed one.

How do I turn off the thing where it sometimes starts with the ones completed? I turned all the percentaging things down to 00.

You can't without the tournament ROM from Papa.

#777 3 months ago

Is that available anywhere?

#778 3 months ago
Quoted from slochar:

Interesting... do you know what all was changed for the PAPA revision? Stock this game has basically zero options for configuring rules.

#779 3 months ago

I was originally thinking mine was the papa rom because I thought that the jackpot was staying the same after collected by the first player. I'll have to verify.

If anybody has the ROM files or is willing to send it off to be copied I'm sure Matt's Basement Arcade would be down to rip / burn it.

#780 3 months ago

I think by default the jackpot only ever increments during a game, regardless of how many players there are. This includes continuing to increment after a jackpot has been collected. This is how mine works anyway and I’m assuming it has a standard rom revision in it.

It would be better if the jackpot value was tied to the player and reset after a collect. I also kinda wish the million from the drops could be re-lit on the same ball by completing the bank sequence over again.

#781 3 months ago

Jackpot increases at game start and when locks lit IIRC in the stock romset.

What does the "PAPA" romset do?

#783 3 months ago
Quoted from jay:

What does the "PAPA" romset do?

Levels the playing field as much as possible for tournament play. I suppose there's still lock stealing because it's a physical ball lock.

From the old tournament tracking website:
https://sites.google.com/site/allentownpinball/tournament-rom-mods

Elimination of auto difficulty adjustments to lock lighting. (All locks must be earned, either through left loop spot (if enabled), saucer spot (if enabled), or hitting standups)
Jackpot minimums and maximums settable.
Jackpot advances by lighting locks (as factory) as well as various scores around the playfield.
Added setting to hold off on jackpot collection until all 3 balls launched.
Added setting to require completion in multiball of all 9 lock targets to allow jackpot collection.
Added setting to eliminate extra balls if desired.
Extra ball can award points from 0-9.9million as desired.
No lighting extra ball from A-B, drop bank only.
Added setting to stop spotting of lock targets from middle saucer.
Top saucer maxes out at 150k instead of 500k.
Added custom game setting to allow individual tweaking of timings on million shot, left loop spot timer, drop bank, drain plug, and spinner.
Spinner now resets timer as long as its hit within time period (no more timing out in the middle of a spin).
Added ability to turn off the million shot.
Added ability to turn off all lock spotting on the left loop.
Added ability to turn off the drain plug.
A-B completion will extend drop target timer slightly (if running)

I posted this Bally Atlantis forum post on the subject and it gives a step by step free factory remedy.

Thanks so much for sharing this link! I need to get this ROM for mine. It fixes EVERYTHING that needed to be fixed. Awesome.

Working on my Atlantis restoration right now- Does anyone reproduce the back playfield plastic? Mine is definitely faded to oblivion.

I wish I need one as well
