After sitting in a storage locker for 2 months since I bought it while I was waiting to move into a new house, I finally brought Creech home last Friday! At least that gave me time to read through all 48 pages here.

Plays really well, although the rollover wire on the I in PAID sometimes doesn’t allow the ball to pass without a nudge. Any tips on how to fix that?

Need to bend the arm of the switch down so the ball can more easily pass through. Might have to unmount the switch from the bottom of the playfield to do so.

I’ll give it a shot.

Thanks npo!

Looking at the manual for attract mode, it says that it plays once after ending a game and will not play again until after ending another game. This is my second Creech and the one I had before this one would play music and play the "movie starts in" sequence without having to play another game. It would play the music on and off and even repeat the movie starts sequence again. I can hear faint music playing after a little while. But it is very faint. I replaced the ribbon cable to eliminate an issue there. Am I remembering incorrectly or did my previous Creech have different Roms or something? Thanks in advance.

Mine only plays music once at end of game. Then display shows high scores, credits, messages, etc and every once in awhile the “movie starts in” sequence. It never plays music after the end of game music on mine.

I wanna become a member of this group as well. Got mine machine in as a throw in (if you can be,ieve this) to my Diner purchase. Slowly getting her brought back up to speed. Bought new translite, speaker panel mod, ColorDMD, lighted flipped buttons, and few leds including the ramps and found and original owners manual.

Mine plays that very,very faint music when it is just sitting there not being played. It never bothered me so I never looked into it to see if something is wrong.

#2409 35 days ago
Quoted from saucerman:

I always thought it was just me that had this problem...it seems more and more prevalent (age related?). I talked to Mike to see maybe if it was the rPi and if I could move to a new version of the rPi but he says no. So now I keep an extra formatted SD card in my machine and then reformat the one that goes bad - a viscous cycle.
But still one of the best mods out there....

Hi All - My Creech has the Mike D mod. I've had it for several years but when I powered it up this morning, the mod won't boot. When I first turned the machine on, I saw the "Please Wait" message flash on the TV screen (which is normal) but then a few seconds later there is just several lines of computer jargon that stays on the screen (see the pic attached). That's all that happens. Does the SD card need to be reformatted (not that I know how to do that) or ? Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

#2410 35 days ago

I believe that is what I had to do when mine did this years ago. Maybe the best thing to do is to contact MikeD and let him walk you thru it--which is what I did. He is really a super nice guy.

Thanks for the reply Billy16. Do you have any contact information for Mike? I'm not sure he is still on pinside. Thanks again.

Ok great. I sent him a PM. Thank you.

#2414 35 days ago

I bought these decals from pinball.center for the circular logo and they’re kinda disappointing. The quality of the Universal Monsters image is pretty crappy & pixelated and no where near as sharp as I’d expected. The colour is better of course, but yeah, disppointing. I’m gonna try and make my own new center logo from an image I found on eBay on a 1991 action figure box. I’ll let you all know how that comes up.

Also worth noting; the green for the rest of the apron decals is very fluorescent compared to the original colours of the machine, but I’d deal with that if the whole bunch were changed at once it wouldn’t matter.

snoogans138 ya sadly the colors and the vinyl are crap in my opinion from pinball center. I ordered some decals for a fish tales, and the colors are majorly desaturated and actually some where different color values all together. I have have found little shop of games to be good quality

Appreciate the responses. Sounds like this is normal. Not sure why my other one played the music. Thanks again.

You will probably have to reformat your SD card. I did mine over twice.

#2418 34 days ago

It's pretty obvious the Pinball Center just scanned the images and reprinted them. The resolution loss is terrible. What a complete scam.

How do I do this? Thanks

On a PC, install BalenaEtcher or Win32DiskImager. Take the USB off of the Raspberry Pi that is part of the Mike D. mod and put it into a USB port on your PC. Copy the contents of the USB drive to your hard drive so you have a backup for the future. Remove the USB drive from your PC. In the backup copy, go to the Extras folder and you will see a CFTBL.img file. Use that img file to rewrite the SD card using BalenaEtcher or Win32DiskImager.

There is a older copy of Win32DiskImager in the Extras folder if you can't download it.

Thanks for the help That Pin Dude. I'm following until the rewriting the SD card using BalenaEtcher or Win32DiskImager part. Will it walk me through this and how is it getting to the SD card? Sorry for my unbelievable ignorance about this.

It will be obvious, as you have to select where the image is to be written to (which media device).

Use an SD card adapter

Not sure if anyone on here needs some playfield insert decals, but I recently bought some and have decided not to use them.

Like drummermike said, if your PC doesn't have an SD card reader built in, you need to get an adapter. Try doing a search on Amazon for: "SD/SDXC TF USB 2.0 Card Reader Adapter".

Download link: https://tinyurl.com/y2ngcanj
Please read the Readme and follow the patch guide carefully.

Release note

Changes

New feature adjustment A.2 19 "Girl search".
Options:
"Random": As rev. L-4. The girl is located at a randomly chosen Search target.
"Pattern": The girl is always at the second Search target made. And third Search target after a jackpot (rest of game, player individual).
"T-play": When tournament play selected: As the "Pattern" option. Else as the "Random" option.

Default: "T-play".

New feature adjustment A.2 20 "Tournament play Snack bar Unlimited millions".
Options:

"No": When tournament play selected: The Snack bar will never award the Unlimited millions mode.

Default: "Yes".

The 10B Snack attack bug, fixed.
Snack attack count down lands nicely on 10M.

255 bumper hits to light Super jackpot bug, fixed.

1x “maxed” playfield multiplier bug, fixed.

Bonus-x calculation corrected to be as indicated by the game. 1x/2x/4x/6x/8x/10x.
Bonus base value raised by a factor-3.

A bug where Move your car was not running properly after a multiball, fixed.

A bug where Snack attack is incorrectly promoted on the right ramp count-up display, fixed.

When tournament play selected: The first Playground award is Unlimited millions. Player individual.

When tournament play selected: Snack bar awards follow a fixed pattern. Player individual.

When adj. A.2 20 "T-play S.B. Mill." is set to "Yes":
Before a multiball has been played: F, L or M letter once (if needed and in that order). Then random points ones.
After a multiball has been played: Unlimited millions once. Then random points ones.

When adj. A.2 20 "T-play S.B. Mill." is set to "No":
Before a multiball has been played: F, L or M letter once (if needed and in that order). Then random points ones.
After a multiball has been played: Random points ones only.

The 10M, 20M and 30M indicators are brought to life.
The Super scoring mode offers a one time only award on the left inlane.
10M, 20M or 30M based on timing.

A bug where the European region installs the hard pre-set on a factory reset, fixed.

Adjustment A.1 21 "Language" is limited to "English".

Adjustment A.1 28 "Min. vol override" defaults to “Yes”.

Why it rocks

Randomisation removed on many accounts for better luck/skill balance in competitive play.
The lucrative Unlimited millions mode may now be play for strategically.
A lot of bug fixes.
No more waiting for game scores to show.
New Super scoring sub-feature for the never-used left inlane score indicators.

Note

The Snack bar Unlimited millions, after a multiball played, is any multiball played.
When selected, the Unlimited millions mode is victory laps for the multiball.
Random points ones are: Popcorn (1M), Hot dog (2M), Hot pretzel (4M), Ice cold pop (4M) and Hamburger (5M).

The incremented bonus base value is to compensate that the max bonus-x is reduced from the incorrect 32x to 10x.
High X bonus is by this a similar payoff. Low X bonus will get a boost.

Feature adjustement A.2 3 "Multiball" is of no use.
At least as of rev. L-4, the game is not awarding multiball at the Snack bar mystery.

The Super scoring mode left inlane award is also given when the inlane is made on a ramp shot return.

Is a ROM available of the new code for those who don't have a burner? Somehow I missed the first version, what were the improvements that were made?
