Looking great thanks for sharing

#3002 2 years ago

Just looked up the MRS switches and I like

Love innovation and good engineering, already have Swinks poster and tail light mods ready to go on and a Snack Bar in order for next batch.

Currently finishing off underside of playfield and starting on topside. Rebuilt
MPU and added an NVRA. Just built, by taking two different LED lamps, breaking them down and rebuilding into one lamp that fits the reflector (I still need to polish it up), the brightest green led lamp. Tested on a bench power supply so far. Not sure how well it work in situ but will let you know.

It’s one way to keep sane during the lockdown

Wow Mo!! That's a lot of green. Can't wait to hear how it works in the machine.

what is the going price on the CPR speaker panels enhanced and delux if they pop up?

also what is the going price on a Thompson speaker mod v1 and v2 if they came up?

That is going to be tough to get any kind of a market price on, as these don't come to the resale market often. Pretty much comes down to if you can even find one and how fair the seller is.

If you see it, buy it.

Don't haggle, wonder if you're getting ripped off or something else.

If this community can pay $500 for a Fisher Price level GB Topper or a KISS topper that twinkles or a GoT topper where the dragon's wings flap.....THIS is better than any of those.

Well i will tell you I would let mine go for $500.00. I had an extra one at one time and I sold it for $200.00 but you cant find them anymore.

A few months ago I sold a never installed one of the last versions Jeff did for something like $280. Guess I should have waited to sell it until now

#3009 2 years ago

thompso9's tail light mod smokes ANYTHING...any...thing that Stern has created in terms of a topper or additional mod.

The quality, level of effort and craftmanship is amazing.

Easy for me to say and tout owning it - but I'd pay $500 for it before ANY topper from any existing manufacturer. What they charge for what they offer is an embarrassment.

To be honest when I got mine from Jeff and opened it my first thought was he is not charging enough.

I'm trying to get a list together to hopefully persuade thompso9 to do another run. I have 8 people on the list. If anyone wants on the list please PM me. When I say persuade I mean beg.

[EDIT] Emailed.

My MikeD mod only boots about 10% of the time lately, anyone have a copy of the SD card boot image I could lay down on a new SD card and see if that resolves? I'm thinking the card may be going bad again...

Got it reimaged/fixed. Thanks all for the pointers/instructions!

Depends. if you are a seller, those mods add a lot of value--especially the 2 unobtainium ones. If you are a buyer, they don't bump the price up enough to cover what you originally paid for them.

There is a copy of the SD card image on the USB stick that is in the Pi. Remove the stick and put it in your computer and look in the extras folder.

I was fortunate when I bought it all the mods already installed

#3020 2 years ago

Almost my game...only do not have the lit pop bumpers and the Mike D but I have a perfect hologram which I just thinks is awesome. Only things I added more is pinsound including headphone, upgraded speaker, chrome trim and legs. I did not do the GI to led since there is to much dimming going on. Could not find the correct leds yet to do that.

#3021 2 years ago

Has anyone installed an LED OCD board for the GI? Says on the site it’ll make the ramp lights stay constantly lit. Didn’t l know if someone had tried it

Quoted from Robertstone0407:

I would be interested to know this as well. Also, has anyone installed the aftermarket chase board and tried the GI OCD on a Creech?

#3023 2 years ago

Perhaps someone can help with this. Whenever I get a high score it automatically puts the first letter in as if I pushed the button and then goes to the second letter and waits for my input. Any ideas why this is happening? Thanks in advance.

#3024 2 years ago

Hello fellow Creech enthusiasts! I wanted to share with you all our latest design of snack food for CFTBL.
Items are available for individual purchase or as a kit. On with the show!

I have the Chase board you mentioned. Filter the responses to just mine to see my thoughts on it.

Hi all. Wondering if someone can help me here.
Lent myu creech to a friend a while back. SInce Ive had it back i noticed some weired GI pulsing ( leds) on occasion while playing.
CHeacked all connections etc.

In GI brightness test it is all good but on level 6 it blinks like crazy...5 and 7 ok!!

I don't think this happened before any ideas ou there to look at?

#3027 1 year ago

Do you have the fading set for the gi? That will cause flickering in almost alL leds, anti ghost or otherwise. Try turning of gi fade and power saving in the settings and see if it still occurs.

#3028 1 year ago

Put a resistor in each GI string (some 100 ohms parallel to a LED) or leave one incandescent per string as a minimum load for the triacs

#3029 1 year ago

Moving here from the Hologram Thread. I found a few things for Creature lovers.
...and for you Creature and Monster fans...I found these. 11x14 lobby cards signed by a group of people. Some signed by both Julie Adams and Ben Chapman.
1) Card signed by Ben and Julie.
2) Card signed by Julie Adams & Ben Chapman (Creature), Basil Gogos (FM artist), Kevin McCarthy (Invasion of the Body Snatchers), Sara Karloff, Tom Savini...and more!
3) Card signed by Ben Chapman, Beverly Garland, Dolores Fuller, Ron Chaney and more!
The first card Ben signed to me, Julie autograph is plain. All the rest are just signed.

I have had this thread in my favourites for over 6 years.
I have bought the Swinks v1.0 Snackbar mod.
I have bought the v2.0 LED Speaker Mod by Thompson.
I didn't own a Creech. I only had a dream.

This week, that dream became a reality.

I am proud to say that I am now the owner of my grail pin! I can officially join this club!

Very nice! I plan on redoing the cabinet, but I think I'm going to move that project to next summer. Too many things going on right now in the world and my world. I will take you up on the offer when the time comes. Thank you!

Quoted from Sonic:

The drive-in movie theme is absolutely timeless and the artwork for this game is the best. The long curly ramp that is available only during multi-ball is one of the best ramps in pinball.

Years ago when I saw that the multi-ball is only 2 balls I was initially a little disappointed, but now after owning a Creech for 9 years I can honestly say that the 2 ball multi-ball is amazing as it allows you to trap one ball on the left flipper and then shoot the big curly ramp to maximize the playfield multiplier thanks to the MRS on the Creech bowl provided by Pinsider Sonic.

Holy shit. Did you get one for free or something? That was one of the best product-placement sponsor moments I have ever read on here.

All in good fun ; ). It genuinely did make me LOL.

I know what you mean, really only 2 ball multiball ... but once you start playing you soon realise that even with 2 balls it's not that easy. On Creech I tend not to trap up but rather try to have one ball always up in the bowl (so it's safe and out of the way), then I continue to play through rescue, jackpot & super with the other ball

#3043 1 year ago
Quoted from Sonic:

Beautifully! I can actually spell Creature now in like 2-3 shots instead of what was 4 or 5.

All because of this amazing MRS that Sonic here sent me and my world has never been the same. I would highly recommend to anyone looking to up their game to purchase now!

; ).

In all seriousness though, very glad I bought one and well worth the price of entry!

#3044 1 year ago

Collecting the super jackpot is still one of the best shots in pinball--always a big accomplishment.

Agreed. And the perfect mix of attainable/challenging.

#3046 1 year ago

Selling a set of side blades made by Tilt Graphics for a Creature. The backing was never removed from the decals. They were pinned to the cabinet sides by the person I got them from so there are a couple tiny pinholes in the white backing. They are in very nice shape. I just decided to go with a different art package. $50 including shipping to the lower 48.
