What are PSL lights ?
Just spent the morning playing a NIB Pro version —what a great game! It's just fun and well done. We all enjoyed it very much and the katana shot is very satisfying. The shots remind me of X-Men; tight and accurate shooting is required on this one. The art is spectacular! Stern did a great job on this one.
Quoted from mannymasy:
I keep asking the owners about the state of their boards after playing some games ... is it the issue of putting the playfield protector ... if it's worth it or not ?.
Today I have seen a video presenting the machine in Germany and many holes are seen in the field because of the ball ... I'm not sure if I can pin it or not
This will happen to every pinball machine. If you want to avoid it, install a protestor.
Quoted from BeeGeeMtl:
This might be a dumb question but I can't figure out how to reset the HIGH SCORES via the settings, anyone know which option it is? Got a small party this weekend in my mancave, wanna give everyone a chance to inscribe their names in the top 5!
Update the code
Any chance the ramp is too low? Or the blue rubber pads are not installed properly?
Can we see a video like this from this angle:
Want to see the angle of the kicker itself as it’s supposed to move the ball at a slightly downward/parallel angle. Maybe yours isn’t doing that - but that’s the angle. Glass off and as close as you can.
I am not sure that you’re having an actual issue. You have a protector, you turned the power down. If you’re not getting damage, you should play the game. I have a Pro with low plays - sometimes the ball gets air, and dimples are part of pinball. Over time they flatten out. Your protector will actually stop that from happening I believe - never used one so I am not sure if that’s correct - but it should add more protection.
It’s a steel ramp - you’re not going to break it. The balls that jump to the outlines, I agree that’s annoying. I still want to see why in slow motion. My game never does that - so maybe something is out of adjustment on yours. Who knows - have you spoken to your distributor?
Picture tells the story. The kicker arm is hitting below the center of the ball, and it’s at a downward angle, this is causing the ball lift up. It’s kind of like how you hit a soccer ball right now, it’s lifting up.
This is likely a combination of your playfield protectors, etc. It’s causing the ball to sit higher on the playfield relative to the kicker arm which is in a fixed position.
I need to look at the mechanism and see if it would be possible to raise it without altering the machine in a destructive way.
I can't see a way to make the mechanism work differently without serious modifications. I would lose the protector. You do not need it. And the idea to make the switches more sensitive is clever; just don't get the switches too tight or they'll misfire on their own due to vibration.
