Quoted from BobT:

I'm in... Just picked up a nice one. Fun, but set way too easy right now. Gonna have to make some adjustments!
...and BTW, who makes a decent LED kit for Ms. Pamela?

My machine (first post) is full LED. I think it looks pretty great.

Just joined the Barb Wire club yesterday. I scored a nice one. I have played about 10 games on it and pleasantly surprised how much fun it is and what a nice looking pin too. Can't wait to load it up with leds!

#53 3 years ago

I've got a really nice HUO Barb Wire for sale if anyone is looking. Asking $2000. Located in Chicago.

#54 3 years ago

I really wish I had time and money to re-theme and re-rule this game.

Id also like to make that 5 bank stand up bank motorized.

Make the shots specific for jackpot. Hit all 5 targets, bank drops. Shoot the left ramp, ball diverts to top left flipper, make the jackpot shot to a small target between two larger kicking targets. Shot MUST be made in that sequence kind of like the WOZ witch melt shot.

Lots of potential. The game flows pretty well. Wish the holes were not so big lol.

#55 3 years ago

I have never had a gottlieb before this one. How do you get into the game adjustments menu? With the flipper buttons?

#56 3 years ago

Anybody on how to get into the game adjustments and diagnostics? I don't have a manual and hard to find any system 3 manual on line. Am I missing something? I am used to having the buttons on the coin door.

I havent had any system 3's open in a while, cuz theyre so reliable, BUT, I think there is a button inside the door, and then you use the flippers to navigate it.

When I got barb wire it was in tournament mode and I turned it off to go into test mode and now it won't go back into tournament mode. Also, the coin switches do not work so I can't put credits on it so therefore not able to start a game. I think the coin door switch does not close as well. When I am in switch test mode, should the coin door open switch and the start button register when I press it? Can anybody post a pic of the lamp and switch matrix? I do not have a manual and not available on line. Thanks in advance for any help cuz I am I am stumped.

Hi all, my parent's are looking to sell their Barb Wire and asked me to help them out. We had it fixed a few years ago and was running wonderfully when I played it. Currently the bottom 2 flippers are not working. You can hear the solenoids fire, but only slight movement from them. I unfortunately am not an expert on fixing them and so told them I will try to sell it as is. I have attached a quick photo. If any of you are wishing to purchase it as is and would like more info, please PM me. Thanks!

I am still hoping for somebody to post a pic or diagram of the barb wire lamp and switch matrix, it would be greatly appreciated.

I have a question about the lens mechanism. Mine seems to work in gameplay but in test mode, only lens coil 3 fires. Should they all fire in test mode? I never saw another mechanism with 3 coils joined together like that before.

If it works in gameplay why would you even worry about test mode?

Quoted from crlush:

I think it works properly but there is 3 coils and not really sure if all 3 coils fire in game mode.

#65 3 years ago

Mine works in test mode the same way yours does, i can slightly hear a buzzing sound when you press the test button, so i would say yours is working as it should.

Finished a full playfield teardown on mine, with all LEDs and made a set of poor mans stadium lights. Bringing it to the Ohio show for sale.

Just found the club. I have one in my collection and I'm hanging on to it.

Crlush saw your machine at the Ohio pinball...I think. Been to a few lately, or was it allentown. Every time I walked by it, I commented damn I'd like to make mine look this great. Excellent choice on your led lighting and your poor man stadium lighting makes the play field pop.

Get any bites at the show(s)?

Yes I ended up selling it, wish I still had it but saving for something new, just cant make up my mind.

The game looks nice, but it sure looks like you used bright white LEDs on the playfield and warm lighting for the translite, which in my opinion just doesn't look right together. Did it look different in person?

I have her in my basement now. I updated the lighting behind the backglass. This is a BEAUTIFUL GAME.

I'm looking at one on craigslist for this game. Is it fun and give you lots of gameplay? Or does it get repetitive quickly.

#76 9 months ago

I think it's a fun machine. Has some good modes you can get into - some you can gamble your points were especially fun. It's one of the highest scoring machines I ever had. Scores in the billions are pretty normal. The Translight is awesome.

These games are a lot of "Bang for the Buck."

I wish I still had mine.

#77 9 months ago

I had a good working one for years, never had a problem with it, later i tore it down and shopped-led it out and regreted selling it, it played alot better with a flipper rebuild. Like it was mentioned there a good bang for the buck, alot of multiball modes, wish they would have stayed in business longer (they might have put more into the code.

#78 9 months ago

code?? a few of there later games had lots of bugs.

What type of LEDs did you use? Are there any mods needed for LEDs? Resistors, lamp board upgrades? I just joined the club.

#81 9 months ago

Can someone post a picture of there opto board with power on?

Quoted from Friengineer:

Cointaker premium frosted cool white on most gi the inserts same on clear inserts and warm white on yellow and red. Used purple and green 4way leds on the purple and green inserts. I didnt do any mods for the leds and it seemed ok. I normally leave the flashers alone unless i want a different color.

#83 9 months ago

Does anyone know how the 2 horizontal smart targets under the retina scan plastic on the left wireform are mounted. Need to replace one and don't have the game here to check

I have a weird question. It looks like barb wire comes with 31’’ legs. I have a height problem where i want to put it. Would there be any adverse effects if I put on 27’’ legs?

Thanks

The adverse effect is that it will be 4" shorter

I actually have gotten in the habit of putting my DMD games that came with 31" legs on 27" legs. They often feel just way too high up for some reason. When I sell the I tell people they can have the choice of legs they want.

Been thinking of picking up a Barb Wire kind of recently... played one at Pintastic last year and really liked it a lot.

#86 7 months ago

all my Gottliebs are higher than the rest.

Thanks for the reply. I wasn't sure if it would play different but i think I’m gonna take the chance.

Greetings Everyone,

This is Rob from Pinshakers and I have some good news for you. We are getting ready to release the next version of our shaker kits and they will be compatible with Barb Wire! Beta testing was completed on a Stargate and the results are amazing.

An official announcement will go out as soon as the kits are released. In the meantime we need your help. Since the manuals for Gottlieb are unavailable for download, we have no idea what the trigger names are. If you happen to have a manual could you please PM or email us the solenoid list. It should be located on the page for "Vll Parts Information" in a small section called "Solenoid, Driver Functions/Locations". That lists all of the solenoids/flashlamps and their names. Our email address is pinshakers@gmail.com in case you are unable to PM images on pinside.

Please do not post any images of the manual here in the forum. They are copyrighted material and we want to respect that. We will not post or distribute the images you send us and they will be deleted once we get the information we need in order to complete the user manuals for the shaker kits.

Thank you so much for your assistance, we can't wait to get these kits out to you guys!

Best Regards,

Robert Goebel
