Having a real hard time finding a photo (any photo!) of the playfield bottom side / underneath. Can someone put the playfield up and post one? Thanks!

#457 2 years ago

Thank you kind sir!

Are Dialed In Cliffy protectors available at any of the usual pinball supply shops? I emailed Cliff to order one from him directly but haven't heard back

#656 1 year ago
Quoted from TheLaw:

Only avaiable directly form him. He's backlogged for weeks I would imagine but I'm sure he'll get back to you.

Good to know, thanks!

#659 1 year ago
Quoted from brucipher:

You can get free protectors from JJP - just go to their website - http://www.jerseyjackpinball.com/support/
They are just their version...not Cliffy's.

Thanks! Problem is I don't have my game yet - expecting an "it shipped!" email any time now... Since I don't know if my game will come with the JJP ones or not, I'm hoping to get the Cliffy ones ahead of time so I'm not stuck without anything when the game comes. Seems inappropriate to ask JJP for them before I even have the game.

Quoted from aeonblack:

Game is at home and set up now! Not having any of the listed issues/adjustments, but my left wireform does occasionally bounce off the end (maybe 1 in 10) as it comes down to the left inlane. Anyone else have this issue? I'm at 6.5 degrees and I'm level left to right, so I don't think it's a speed or level thing, but who knows

Just got mine yesterday and I had the exact same problem. I added 4-5 #8 washers underneath the wireform support on the left sling and it fixed it for me. No more bounce outs now!

The other problem I have you might have to deal with is the trap door getting stuck open. You may not notice it at first but shots up the leftmost lane are not always supposed to end up in the subway... if they never loop around your trap door is probably stuck open. See earlier posts from LTG, the fix is lubing the mech a bit. I will tackle that today myself!

#920 1 year ago

Oh and +1 on the idea of using the apron lights to indicate tilt warnings! That would be awesome!!

#955 1 year ago

Can't stop playing my game since I got it on Friday! With the fixes to the trap door and left wireform (see above, easy fixes), the game is playing super now. So great! Really feels like a continuation of Whirlwind, Funhouse, Addams and Twilight Zone. LOVE IT!

I totally agree with other folks comments on the orientation of the Crazy Bob sign, though. Someone needs to make a kit to reorient it and fix the ball trap that creates! But it's a minor nit, for sure - highly recommend this game to anyone!

I’m often getting center drains when the theater magnet releases the ball in EMP Strike mode (which doesn’t do the usual “shadow” style ball flip up). Any fixes for this? Seems like the release should light ball save for a few seconds, but it doesn’t.

#1005 1 year ago

Yep in EMP Strike the magnets sometimes move the ball enough for it to not center drain, but not always. I'll try changing the magnet setting. Thanks!

Curious what folks are setting their flipper strength to? My machine came with both bottom flippers set at 18, which seems a little on the weak side. The "green" setting seems to be 21 - interesting they would have set them at lower-than-default.

#1170 1 year ago

Man, I may not be Keith Elwin, but I'm also not completely inept at pinball... That said I just cannot make the SIM shot with a direct hit from the top right flipper. Any shot near the SIM hole tends to get deflected.

My game came with the JJP SIM protector installed which is definitely curled up a bit off the playfield. I have a Cliffy coming in the mail and will swap it out, sure hope it makes the shot more make-able.

#1306 1 year ago

In case you were wondering which USB port to use on Dialed In for the update - the installation instructions alongside the download don't include this info, but the 2.0 manual does:

"Remove the USB stck from your personal computer. Power your game down and insert the USB stck you burned into the USB cable atached to the cabinet divider, behind the coin box, just inside your game’s coin door."

So, no need to get into the back box to update. Nice!

Quoted from movingpictures:

2 - During gameplay yesterday, the cell phone took on a deep red hue and everything on the display was tinted red. A reboot fixed the issue.

I had a similar problem, yep. Looks like a new bug in the 1.50 code.

#1443 1 year ago

To everyone who has the game with JJP protectors installed: GET THE CLIFFY'S. This afternoon I took the JJP protectors out and installed the Cliffy ones - they are SO much thinner and play better, especially for the SIM shot. On my game at least the SIM shot was un-makable with the JJP protector except from a random bounce-in - a direct shot would ALWAYS get deflected away by the protector.

Top score before today, a few hundred games in since I got the game a couple weeks ago: 750k
Top score today, about 5 or so games after installing the Cliffy's: 2.9M. Collected 4 sim cards, boom!

Quoted from koops:

I spent some time tonight looking at why shots were bricking. It was consistently the scoop vertical reenforcements.
Lifted the pf and looked at the mech. Mine had been installed with a fair bit of slack space behind it for the cables etc. So my guess is that the mech is waaay forward in my machine.

Wow. That's pretty bad! Not only will the vertical reinforcement cause rejects on the phone shot, but it will likely chew through balls like crazy. Good thing you found and fixed this!
