Mod looks great. I bought one of you 2 years back- V2 was about $270 from memory-going to your website gives me no idea how to add the sign upgrade just goes to shapeways with blanks.

head to the resource page and there is a manual for the signage upgrade

Quoted from Jackalwere:

Here's a side by side comparison I did for a Pinside member: new Mirco playfield on the left, old playfield on the right. The new Mirco is beautiful...the colors are deeper, richer, and really pop, especially the hot pink and the teal around the bumpers.
However, the clear looks like it may not hold up. The post had been in for 2 weeks before I decided to change the post colors. The last photo shows how the star post has sunk down into the clear. This may explain how my playfield mysteriously "fixed itself" in my previous post...it looks like the clear may be soft. The old playfield with 84,000+ plays on it has cut into the clear and down to the wood on the side opposite of where the ball hits the post. That's to be expected on a game with that many plays, and the other side of the playfield under the post looks great. What I don't like is that the post has cut into the clear on a new playfield that hasn't even been played yet.
I've placed some nylon washers under a few posts but I'm nervous that this will just push damage to the clear farther out into the playfield. I'm going to watch this closely...
[quoted image][quoted image][quoted image][quoted image]

Sorry to say this is what Mirco has apparently been producing lately, even for the big manufacturers. The clear (apparently) does not adhere properly to the ink on the wood, and it interferes with the curing process. It may be worth it to wait a month or two before doing anything further

jackalwere Playfield looks nice. To be honest when I heard Mirco was making Creech playfields I was so stoked, as mine needs a PF. Then I bought a JJP Pirates, and the PF had major issues. I completely changed my mind about Mirco's quality.

Interestingly, I have an older Mirco White Water playfield and its fine... But it's over 2 years old and sat for a year before being installed. I have also been told that Mirco changed the clear process within the last 2 years, and added a clear accelerator to speed production... this causes massive hardening and adhesion issues...

#2705 25 days ago

I've custom designed, printed and hand painted hot dog switch covers.
They look and fit great on many games. I am selling sets(2) for $20.

My new BG arrived this week and I’m also having trouble getting the trim on and gotta say I’m abit worried about heating them up lol. Is there trim designed for BG apposed to the trim designed to hold the translite in place? Oh the glass looks incredible.

#2710 21 days ago

Ended up using the heat Gun on the trim and after some nervous moments pointing a heat gun at a $500 backglass it all work out great, glass is now on my Creature and looks fantastic.

$500 backglass

I think you mean $269 backglass....Shipping to Australia is not part of the retail price......

#2712 21 days ago
Quoted from Cherries_Jubilee:

The price was in Australian dollars, not US.
It was purchased from a local pinball parts retailer, so the cost of shipping from the US by the retailer is embedded into the local price.
We also have an embedded sales tax included in the retail price.
The price was rounded given it wasn't the main point being made, the actual price of these backglasses for us is $470

So not the cheapest of hobbies for us over here but we love it just the same

Thanks Brett for clarifying but I choose to ignore his stupidity picky post. Wish I could get better photos as it really does look magic in person so glad I went ahead and spent the money.

Check with Cointaker. Do you have MikeD's holo mod in your machine? If you do, you won't be able to to connect the topper as it utilizes the same connectors on the driver board that the holo mod does.

I'm back to making bowl MRS'.....took a 4 week hiatus through October......got 3 done....we're hoping to mass-produce them, but it takes time.....remember to send a PM to get on the list...

#2724 13 days ago

Just picked one up. Anyone know where to get a mirror motor. My lower isnt working. Tested the power coming out of the triac board and it’s getting 50v. Though motor maybe stuck but that wasn’t it either. Thanks!

#2725 12 days ago

Does anywhere have suggestions as to where to tap into 12v to run a led display? Creature is pretty full on power consumption. JI38-141 a logical spot?

Message me. I got a mirror motor for sale.

You can use the hologram motor for the mirror's replacement, and then you can cross reference a motor off of Hurricane as a perfect replacement. That's what I did, and it works 100%!

On the road right now, but I can dig the info when I get to mom's for Thanksgiving.

Rebuild is coming along slowly but surely. I just can't make enough time to progress as fast as I want. Waxed the playfield and installed it in the cabinet, got all the cables hooked up in the backbox, Pinsound installed, and color DMD installed. Lamp test looks good (see photo), I've got about 6-7 bulbs out but 4 of those are the PAID lanes so should be an easy fix. Others probably need a solder reflow. Plastics are now installed. I have to admit that despite the questionable clear on the playfield, it does look beautiful.

Next steps: install Swinks snackbar mod, re-install MikeD TV mod, re-install ramps and whirlpool, install new speakers, and light up speaker panel mod.

looking nice, hopefully you will have it running by Christmas

Thanks Jady but unfortunately it probably won't work out that way. I have an Alice Cooper's Nightmare Castle coming next week and then I go in for surgery in a little over a week, so I will be down for awhile. But I'll get close!

Correction. J116, 117, 118 all seem to be 12v DC

Quoted from Jodannar:

yes they do but they all come from the same feed so putting 3 items on one plug is equal to one feature on each plug if that makes sense.

#2734 8 days ago

Yeah they are already fully loaded so I think external power supply will be the way to go

I’ve always thought an extra power supply would be great on Creech as I have alot of mods but I’d have no idea how to go about doing it

#2736 7 days ago

Just tap in after the powerswitch? I did that on my stern POTC.

#2737 7 days ago

That’s the plan. Tap in a small psu after the power switch and then tap anything that’s needed off of it

#2739 6 days ago

If it’s 12v you’re needing, get a pc laptop power supply for about $20-30 and some molex plugs. Cut the end off and use the
Molex and a splitter if needed. Easy and saves the driver board.

One pic - thousand words! The switch on the bowl's issue is it is a silly application, but all Williams had in 1992......but by 1996 - they had other options![quoted image]

Looks pretty cool. Would Like to Take one

Installed the Creature Bowl MRS Mod and very happy! This is excellent in many ways...fits flush with the bowl (pun intended), looks great with the grabber green color, easy to install (its worth spending an hour to completely remove the bowl and apron so the wiring is routed nicely). You actually don't need glue or adhesive because of the way it fits. Thank you Matt.

Fantastic! I'm on to making original MRS' (the ones that are stock in 7 WMS pins) for a bit - then I'll be back to making more Creech MRS'....
