Quoted from MEuRaH:

Dang this thread is hopping again! I'm thrilled that DI is catching on, finally.

Me too I loved it immediately and really thought with a little different artwork and a name change to Chaos in Quantum City his game would've have sold five thousand easily.

Quoted from GrbJimmy:

Mine used to go black, the game would continue to run normally until I recycled the game. I never saw the blue screen however.
Once I updated to the latest code I never saw that problem again, not sure what code you are on

I am on the latest code 1.72

#11303 76 days ago

Looking to add another pin and DI is on the shortlist...but probably not able to add anything till 2021.

With that in mind, what's the production cycle/availability here? I can't imagine JJP running more with GnR being massive...is the secondary market decent?

As far as NIB, factory is out of them but distributors have some I think.

Yeah there seems to be a decent amount on the secondary with some good prices. Some stragglers left with distributors but JJP is out

I decided to jump on a DI now because I have a feeling that the market for the game as at its bottom and we will see a pretty good bump in prices as these become increasingly harder to find. There are definitely NIB games available from distributors but I can’t imagine this ever going back on the line with GnR and then toy story.

#11307 76 days ago

My daughter is home from college for a few days and we were playing pinball and ended up playing DI. She isn’t very good and I decided to use the app and she managed the flipper buttons. It was a blast!! We were both flipping the same game. I was trying to show her where to flip and make shots, it quickly devolved into us blaming each other for drains. We played this way for almost an hour. We would fight over the flips and who should make the shots. As an FYI, if you hold the flipper with the app the buttons on the cab don’t override the app. When you do that and call the shot, you better make it or there is hell to pay.

For the new owners, if you can download the app do it. It can act as a center button, or you can find other uses for the app. I really dislike that this feature had so much hate. One of the ideas for that app is that it would remember your scores and if you beat your high score it would capture it on the app, no matter which DI you played.

What a great story and fun way to play with the app. I always thought the app got a bad rep. It doesn’t seem to work well with some machines, but it works flawlessly on mine. And I’ve had cases where kids, new to pinball, aren’t really interested in the game until I show them how they can play with the app.

Thanks for sharing.

It’s so challenging for me because consistently, even with GNR out, I see people who know pinball get asked their favorite JJP and it’s Dialed In

I accidentally split the green wire yesterday while installing the lock light mod. What would be the best way to repair this?

#11311 76 days ago

if it's just the insulation, then tape it

if it's completely cut then:
strip both sides
put the shrink tubing on one side
twist the wires together along the direction of the wire
solder the wires
cover the joint with the shrink tubing
heat the tubing
done

Please do this. I blew up the picture and you can see there is damage to the wires inside the casing.

The cost of production would be prohibitive under the new management objectives of making a profit.

On Pinside AKA social media just say I’m getting a DI because it’s a great and fun pin. Unless you like having your post scrutinized

late to the party I know, but does anyone know where I can get some of those Power Blades for my new DI?

I’ve seen the guy who created them post on here, I don’t believe he’s making them anymore and I don’t think he made very many. I have the non power ones which look sick, so I can image how good the power ones were.

What do I need to do to modify my backbox lock to work properly?

I spent ~30 min last night to get into my backbox, had to take off the speaker panel to finally get the key to turn- what a pain in the a$$!

I also discovered that I get to trim the wood in the backbox as the glass can't lift up far enough to be removed. I found the post about what to do for wood trimming but didn't find/ look as closely about how to modify the lock.

I have LE 179 and my troubles indicate the PO never removed the glass.

Thanks!

You are literally describing the fix. A lot of us have had the issue. Remove speaker box screws and either adjust and tighten lock, bend lock arm, trim wood, etc...
I think it's described a couple pages back recently.

Remove the screws holding the speaker panel on, be careful of speaker wires.

See Frank's finger pointing to the wood dividers along the tip. The notch where the finger is pointing to, if your game doesn't have them. Cut a notch in that spot on each of the dividers that are in the top part of the back box, left and right.

Thanks LTG! I followed the need to cut out notches to allow for the glass to come out once the lock is free.

My understanding is I have 2 issues
1 - being able to turn the lock - the lock bar is too long - what's the fix?
2 - being able to lift the glass out - I understand the need to notch the wood to allow for this, that is clear to me.

This post talks about bending out the lock bar, which I can do but seems a bit crude. Another posts talks about JJP sending out a new lock.

My grandchildren enjoyed a few games after school today, everyone loves this pin. Such great game for the whole family.

#11326 75 days ago

Does anybody have a PDF of the manual with the Extra Making Of Dialed In? My PDF file is missing this section, only the printed version has that section.

#11328 75 days ago

Hello- was in the middle of a game last night and the phone screen went white. Surrounding lights still lit up but nothing but white screen on phone. I turned off and back on, and it was fine, or at least seemed so. Any idea what I should look for? Anyone had this issue? Thanks

#11329 73 days ago

So good news and bad news.. Steve on here helped me fix my Burned out LED problem, I swapped the board and it’s working like a champ. I also got my Dialed In Manual in the mail today (it’s thicker than a phone book!) on the downside, I ordered my 3rd filter because of my static issue and all 3 do the same thing. All 3 eliminate the noise but also eliminate the sub woofer and a tremendous amount of the fantastic audio this pin has. I’m going to open a ticket with JJP but I know this is a known problem, and the filters work for some people, but obviously not me.

Is there anyway to do LED flipper buttons that match the lighting scenes on the game that rotates?

#11333 73 days ago

Well these are supper cool so thanks for finding them but I missed a key word in my post “buttons” LED flipper buttons, which I have done before on older games but I want the lights to match the colors in the game.

#11334 73 days ago

Which colors specifically? The mode colors? (ie. green/purple for Alien Invasion)
Technically it would be totally feasible to reproduce the color of any controlled playfield LED on a number of additional LEDs.

I've just finished setting up this beauty today ! Time to play !

have a problem with my DI fuse to auto launch, didn't want to muck up the fan club so I have a separate thread.

Thanks.

#11337 71 days ago

Joined the club yesterday! Have a few questions:

1. Are there supposed to be 2 screws in the left orbit? (See pic)
2. Game has a lot of small scratches between the slings. I assume not fixable, but should be rewaxed? I replaced the balls - I assume they cause it. (See pic)
3. Is the consensus that cliffys are a billion times better than factory for the phone scoop? I can make the shot but it rejects quite a bit.
4. Sometimes my skill shot doesn't quite make it to the switch. Should I just bend it a bit?
5. NOW. YOU'RE. DIALED. IN!

Just played my DI LE after ignoring it for a few weeks, due to the acquisition of a new machine.

Wow! I had forgotten what an incredible game Dialed In is!!! What an amazing game!

#11339 71 days ago

20 games later I had to take a break, but surprisingly my wife is still going at it. She probably played 5 games of WOZ in 2 years, if that's not a sign it's a great game I'll be damned !

#11340 71 days ago

DI is the only game my wife enjoys playing.

Mine has two black screws there, quite hard to spot actually. Had to pull the playfield out

As there was a user lately having booting troubles after a battery change (unfortunately changed it at power off therefore loosing all settings) it would be nice if JJP could post or release the correct BIOS settings for Dialed In. I wonder why they are not included in the manual. An official release would help all DI owners in future...

I believe it was posted in this thread recently. Power on after power failure in the BIOS is the only thing preventing it from booting.

Edit: maybe it was the Wonka thread.

#11344 70 days ago

...and it would help a lot to get an official release of all BIOS setting - just in case. In this thread. And in the DI manual or the DI section on the JJP site.

Quoted from ClarkKent:

I agree. It shouldn't bee all that difficult to go through the BIOS settings and see what isn't default. If I ever get around to changing the battery maybe I'll browse through it.

This would be really nice!

Nevertheless JJP would prevent such troubles by simply posting the BIOS settings necessary to boot correctly.

#11347 70 days ago

On the topic of battery... From the Dialed In Manual:

"The life expectancy of the CR2032 battery is approximately three years"

DI was released... when? February 2017? If so, if you haven't changed your battery you should probably look into it.

This applies to me too! While mine is pre-owned, I don't have any reason to believe the previous owner changed the battery.

#11348 70 days ago

RE: Battery,
If your machine is constantly plugged in to a live socket it probably isn't using the battery enough to require replacement every three years

#11349 70 days ago

Good question if battery drains less when plugged in.

But if the only option maybe is power on at power fail in the BIOS then it’s not that important to change battery before it’s dead.

Therefore it would be nice if JJP could release the BIOS settings necessary for DI.

#11350 70 days ago

I have a simple rule question but I can't figure it.

I don't get how to light the lock, I read you have to shoot both ramps which I keep doing but it doesn't light the lock.

Am I missing something ?
