Quoted from FatPanda:

Just fill out a form on the JJP website. I have the Mantis scoop protector installed, and I'm not sure if I want to install the Sim card hole cliffy...it's hard enough to hit without one!

You're just raw-dogging the sim card hole currently? How is it holding up?

Quoted from epthegeek:

lol. It's got mylar on it from the previous owner (JJP installed?). There was a little chip in the topside (towards the back of the machine) when i bought it. It's held up fine so far. I get probably 50/50 random bounce-ins/dribble-ins:aimed shots. It definitely doesn't get nearly as many direct shots as the phone scoop does.

#5903 1 year ago

Quoted from koops:

Just got my dialed in and the shooter rod hits the auto launcher what should I be adjusting to fix this?

Inside the cabinet three screws hold the shooter rod housing. Loosen, move it, retighten the screws.

This is adjustable to line up ball hits better.

Quoted from msj2222:

Personally I like the toys that function, anyone can bolt happy meal toys in a machine. I get that its a little frustrating that they tend to burn out but I am confident that JJP will come up with a simple fix(inline resistor) that will make them reliable. So just turn them off til then

Mine don't work,so I can save a step, and not turn them off.

#5906 1 year ago
Quoted from Damien:

Anyone have this happen before? On boot up the phone also says "auto config" which I don't recall seeing before.
The first time that it happened I just rebooted the machine and it resolved itself. And now it's had this red screen for the last 3 boot ups.

Hey damien , my phone went pinkish/reddish today just like yours did 8 months ago. It's at a co-op and we were in league so I left it on for 2 hours. It somehow resolved itself and the colors are back, but now the background on the screen is 1/8th of an inch lower.

Anyway, I'm not 100% convinced that the phone will work the next time I start it up. You didn't explain (I think) how you fixed your phone issue. Care to share?

Same issues. Needed a replacement phone assembly.

#5911 1 year ago

Had it all lined up tonight. 8 modes completed, with 7 of them collected. 2 balls left to play...

All I had to do was hit that SIM shot one last time, and of course, I couldn't.

It was fun while it lasted, but now off to a new home.

#5912 1 year ago

Public holiday in Germany and no new code to play with . Still hoping for the rest of the day

Are you selling because DI is difficult to beat?

#5914 1 year ago

Had both flipper springs snap, what size/length are they? Going to a hardware store later today.

#5915 1 year ago
Quoted from romulusx:

Haha nope. It's just time for something new.

I do hate the SIM shot though. I personally feel it was a design flaw.

Maybe I'll pick up another DI in the future and take a stab at Showdown again.

I have the game until Sunday, so there's still time

#5916 1 year ago

Ha!

The Game!!!

2nd time Armageddon, 1st time Showdown. Showdown won! Really nice. I did not spoil the fun and had not watched any videos before, so this was really amazing!

Crazy!!!

#5917 1 year ago

dang!!!! I played about 10 games last night - was lucky to break 1 million once or twice.... most of the time didn’t make 500k... that Big Bang shot can be brutal sdtm

Quoted from Pale_Purple:

Don't know if you'll source them locally. I've posted a picture to help with size, they are a soft spring.

If your loop of the spring broke off, you can bend a loop over and keep the game going. Then get spares.

This was the recommendation LTG gave me and it works flawlessly. This happened over the summer to mine and its still going strong on the broken one.

#5920 1 year ago

Any chance for code this weekend?

Was reported to be available early this week.

#5921 1 year ago

Will there be any new animations, or sound effects in this new code update?

#5922 1 year ago

Yes. The new animations were announced.

#5923 1 year ago
Quoted from pb_lawww:

I hope these are going to fix the missing animations on the phone when modes are started.

#5924 1 year ago

That’s what they said!

#5926 1 year ago
Quoted from msj2222:

If the "delay" means the code will have more added to it, then I say take your time. The code as it sits now is more than enough to keep you busy! Keep going for Showdown

#5928 1 year ago

I wouldn't get hopes up that the delay is for new features as that would take much longer. Let's get this code update out

#5929 1 year ago
Quoted from delt31:

There’s a huge amount of new stuff, there’s a full new multiball, Major scoring changes, not to mention new animations

#5930 1 year ago

Ted posted this last week:

Quoted from check_switch_26:

Clarification: Your observation relates to what was shared in the stream a week ago. The code in games at the JJP booth at Pinball Expo is newer than what was shared on the stream. No static images. All of the phone character animations are in.
I don't have a firm release date yet. I'm aiming to have new code posted early next week. I'm still waiting on a few items.
--Ted

The wording of that "waiting on a few items" makes it sound like he's waiting for others to provide him with things, so likely more of the rendered animations.

Not sure you understood my point. The new code coming out is going to be amazing. This notion that it's being delayed this week b/c we're getting MORE features is not likely.

No No No let’s be patient and wait until Ted says it’s ready!

aaah, copy that. Sounds like the animations are the holdup

#5935 1 year ago

If they do it like they've done the Hobbit, they will release a beta version via the jjp Google group for user testing. That hasn't happened yet.

#5936 1 year ago

Two of my favourite shots in DI are hitting Big Bang while in a mode and the ball drops right into Sim card, and hitting the telephone scoop with the upper flipper when the ball is slowly coming back down the right orbit. I am just starting to understand the nuances of this machine, what a great game!

Getting Big Bang when you know you can't finish a mode, and there are just a couple seconds left on the ticker is THE BEST THING EVER! lol

My favourite: Sucking at a mode, shooting the theatre at high speed and holding the right flipper up so the ball bounces and finishes lighting big bag. Trap left, bump asshole to get him out of the way. Trap right. Nail big bang with one second left in the mode. Return off big bang shot, SDTFM.

That's funny! One night my wife thought I was losing my mind,when I said I'd like to ring the QED guy's little neck.

Quoted from ralphs007:

I find the QED guy saves more SDTMs than anything. He only seems to get in the way of the pops, the left ramp still gets them, other shots can get past him. Even the hurricane mode, the magnets can pull the ball around him when going for the theatre quite often. Just aim for the Big Bang. New code should make his save ability even better.
