Awesome, thank you. I'll check the optos on the ramp.
I know the optos register correctly on the castle lock area so I'll have a look at the trough switches as I know it sometimes drops the mist ball out of the right holding area when loading it up.

Maybe related to the trough switches.

Thank you so much for you're help

#6602 10 months ago

Diverter is now working, just needed to clean the connections on the plug for the ramp optos under the playfield.

Trough switch was catching sometimes too, all working now, thank you so much

Always am happy when a problem is solved by cleaning and adjustments.

Me too, when I got the pinball the backbox wasn't attached. I had to try and locate all the cables to the correct places on the boards.

Then various items like rebuilding flippers, stripping down and cleaning all the parts, new LEDs etc etc.

Pissed off though because my wife has the high score and I can't see any way of beating it as the gameplay is so fast with new rubbers etc.

I've thoroughly enjoyed working on the machine though.

I wish, can't even hit that bloody left ramp unless it's pure luck!

#6607 10 months ago

I meant to post this earlier, but work pulled me out of town.

No pictures I have seen do this artwork justice. The overall color temperature is just a bit cooler than the original, which really ties it to all the blue in the playfield. It's truly a great addition. Thanks, Pinstein!

Got mine today as well. Nearly identical lighting but a completely different look and feel.

Thanks to everyone for the recommendation. I've ordered a Pinsound board and found the speakers on Amazon for less than Parts Express. At the moment, it seems Pinsound is out of stock, and anticipating a 2-month delay, so I'll be exercising some patience as well.

I'm really looking forward to this one.

I have a PinSound in my BSD & LOTR. The BSD is a full replacement with matching form factor while the LOTR is an additional board. Clearly PinSound was designed for this era game. I am a PinSound fan and am still refining my BSD mix in collaboration with davebart. The Hazard mix is great and just as his is a remix of the original, ours will be simply an alternate mix.

I would very much like to give it a listen when you feel it's ready. I'd even be happy to help beta test if it would be helpful.

Have you tried to get the Pinsound board from K's Arcade or some one else in the US that sells them? They may have in stock. Good luck.

Naw, Pinsound was running a deal that involved a free headphone station and free shipping. I figured I could wait.

EDIT: Actually, I must have looked at an older description, it now says shipping in July, which, unless I'm REALLY late for work, is about now.

Zen, I will send you a PM when we get to the point of “beta”.

#6615 10 months ago

What, I'm not beta worthy?

#6616 10 months ago

I am curious to what extent you have altered the mix. I have of course been doing some updates myself, but nowhere near a release yet.

#6617 10 months ago

Per the above two posts:
No worries neverahighscore.
PM sent to Hazzard to explain and possibly collaborate.

After playing BSD last night for a couple hours, I had a thought about adding non BSD soundtrack music to another alternate mix, a non-pure mix if you will.

#6618 10 months ago
Quoted from Pinstein:

My apologies to all who were interested in those BSD decals I posted. Upon my final press check I am unhappy with the quality of the output and cannot offer them for sale. Sorry for the let down.

You will only let us down if you give up on this! Those decals when done right will sell like hot cakes!

Whilst mine is not overly loud.. it makes the mist ball less magical by hearing the motor and inclined spline moving, has anyone had a way to soften the noise of the movements?

Quoted from Jodannar:

While I hate this answer, my solution is generally to turn up the game's volume. I actually find the noise fills out the sound under the "Vinds! Vinds!" call.

Spray the rod/axl with a light touch of silicon spray, did wonders on mine

Nice! I have a "dry" silicone spray leftover from a car window repair that's worked well in other applications. Will try.

Hi club peeps!

I bought a colorDMD. I hear I need some kind of special speaker panel kit to install it? Where do I find this special kit? Thanks!

I recently got mine from ClassicArcades on eBay. It’s a reproduction speaker panel cover but has clear DMD plastic instead of the original red color.

#6625 10 months ago

Anyone hear if CPR is going to release the mirrored backglass of the original translite soon? I'm definitely curious about that. I believe Stu or someone from their team said it was being worked on and coming soon.

#6627 10 months ago

I’ve discovered something puzzling with my machine. If I have a ball in the castle lock and then I hit the left Center standup it triggers the animation and fallout “master.. don’t fall asleep in the light” (or whatever it is) as if the ball has gone into the left opto Asylum shot. Only happens when the onto for the castle lock has a ball in it.

I can’t figure out why this is happening, can’t see any touching wires or anything. Only occurs if the castle opto 1 is blocked at the same time as the left Center standup is hit.

I have a new replacement homepin opto board in and I haven't noticed this issue before. I think I would have noticed it happening during normal play as it is quite apparent now when you hit the standup with a lock.

Could it be the diode on the standup target?

Anyone know if I can source the back panel decal somewhere?

#6631 10 months ago

Finally joined the club and am finishing up dialing in my new BSD. I'm noticing that if I get a nice clean shot on the left ramp when the diverter is down, alot of times the ball will just fly off the wire form and end up back on the playfield instead of the castle lock. Any advice on how to tweak that out? Just play with the wire form and bend a bit to better hold the ball?

Bryan Kelly had some before. Shoot him a PM.

Quoted from Doot77:

Not sure if this will fix the issue you guys are having with your ball falling off that wire ramp but mine did this after I had removed the ramp to do some work but it hadn't before that. I found that it was misaligned. Basically I had aligned it so the stud for the ball lock was in the middle of it and tightened everything down and the ball would fall off more times than not. But when I loosened the two mounting nuts for it and tightened them down where the ramp basically aligned itself to, its been fine ever since.

Hi all. Does anyone know if the apron on this title is identical to Getaway one at all?
Thanks in advance if anyone can help.

#6635 10 months ago

Also does anyone who has upgraded their coffin want to sell the grey plastic base at all?

On location in Brooklyn with Repro Mirco PF. Very little fade in the red on one side, but that's it's only flaw.

Just got an email from pinsound for their new Motion Control board & shaker kit. It features a relay output that you can connect and control a variety of devices. They mention a fog machine in addition to others.

Imagine if when starting Mist, underneath the machine a green LED strip turns on and green-lighted fog spews out to create a green mist in your room. Sounds insane, but if the fog doesn't harm the games (I don't know if it does or not), it would be epic.

P.S. - I am not a spokesman for Pinsound, haha, but I am a lover of their products and would certainly be a guinea pig tester if they ever needed one!

#6640 10 months ago

I purchased a new fuse holder to replace the one currently in there (the fuse seemed a little loose but the game worked when I bought it). Now I know why. Want to make sure I get all the connections correct before undoing the existing hack.

Can anyone take of photo for me of the fuse hookup in the line filter? Or verify my thinking on fixing the issue? Thanks.

Thanks. I screwed around with this for a while and couldn't really get anywhere. What I ended up doing that seemed to work good and may help others (I can get a picture if this doesn't make sense) was use needle nose pliers and grab the left side of the wireform where the ball would fly off of and bend it up, using the right side of the wireform as the fulcrum so the left side of the wireform was higher than the right. It isn't really noticable but it makes a guardrail type effect that seems to both hold the ball on and slow it down just a touch. Working good so far...

Got it. So they were using a fuse as a thermistor. Now to track down the correct values. Thanks.

The fog machine mod has already been done before.....liorillusion created it. I have it on my machine...the mist motor triggers my fog machine underneath my pin and it spews fog. You can adjust for how long the fog machine stays on...a little goes a long way. It’s def a neat n nifty mod!

Nice, I too have the alt translite in and really like it, and IMO it pairs best with the ColorDMD due to the variety of colors. Is yours an LCD or LED? Looks like DotsXL. I want a ColorDMD, but can’t decide between which type and want to see the two in person before deciding.
