I just got my LE in the mail, I'm waiting for a friend to come help me move it and set it up before I fully open it up. #285. Is that an older number or have they not been making that many?

I'm a bit worried. The lightning bolt was outside the cab and broken. The glass and cab look good though, I'm just not popping that strap to check everything until we can get it moved and the legs on.

#3958 1 year ago

A fuse is blown, loose plastics from missing screws and bolts scratched other plastics, broken lightning bolt, scratched and scuffed invisiglass from the loose plastics. Worst of all, unplayable today.

#3965 1 year ago

Thanks for the advice on the balls. I'll order some soon.

It is indeed the trough VUK which is also the left lane kickback. I'll check that out when I get home. I don't have a local store that has the fuse I need though, so I'm having to wait for some to come from Amazon tomorrow.

The glass is scratched pretty bad as well as Bob's sign and the plastic underneath it. There was only a single bolt out of three on it and it was swiveling around and hitting everything during shipping. I haven't gotten anything back from the JJ Support ticket yet, but from what I hear of them I'm certain they will take care of it for me.

It's my first NIB and patience is hard though.

#3967 1 year ago

Nice! Thanks for the info. I'll follow those steps as soon as I have the fuses tomorrow.

#3993 1 year ago

It turns out that my hanger brackets are bent. At behest of the JJ tech I'm going to take them off and bend them to where they are supposed to be. Any idea what I'm looking for to make sure something isn't touching anymore for my short? I checked the trough gate and that doesn't seem to be touching anything.

#4007 1 year ago

Mine's working perfectly now! Thanks Lloyd at JJ and pinside.

Now to just wait for some replacement plastics and I'll be all set.

I didn't find it in the index, so posting.

In lottery frenzy, you're supposed to have to wave at the camera to scratch the ticket right? It only does it sometimes for me, otherwise it scratches on its own. It's something wrong? How can I make it so that it has to wave to scratch every time? My game is on easy with a dark room in case that influences it.

I always think about the Sim City disaster theme and wish there was a "Giant Monster" disaster.

#5177 1 year ago

I feel like my bumpers aren't throwing the ball around enough before it bounces out. Should I adjust the power for them first or go after the leaf switch adjuster?

To the protectors, I got all blue and wish I'd have gotten red/blue mix.

#5179 1 year ago

Thanks Lloyd, as always.

#5199 1 year ago
Quoted from Tranquilize:

I added an extension USB cable and moved the Bluetooth dongle to the upper part of the coin mech. This helped, but it still lags now and then. The first version of the app worked flawlessly for me. Bummer that they changed it.

I can't even connect to it anymore. We had a disabled guest with one arm who wanted to try it out and I couldn't get it to work. It was frustrating.

Quoted from Oneangrymo:

BTW Absolutely love my JJP.. so put down a deposit for a WOZ. cant wait!

I've been tempted, but I'm going to wait and see what Lawlor does with them next instead.

I'd also like to chime in that the multi ball should be more rewarding in points. They are almost worthless compared to the disaster modes and big bangs.

#5322 1 year ago

I'm just saying that the best light shows and interactions are in the multi-ball. The score should reflect the show at least a little!

I need to order one of these noise filters as well. I think I'll make the call today.

My wife and I both played a Shadow for the first time a couple of weeks ago and couldn't get over how much better the Shadow throws the ball backwards over Dialed In. The Shadow does it flawlessly. (at least the one we played)

#5554 1 year ago

I love the magnet when the throw back works right. I put new balls in it last week, I might need to take it off of "experiment lab" or whatever and try it again since people are getting different results from different sets of balls.

#5616 1 year ago
Quoted from FatPanda:

Is it normal that you only scratch off the first lottery ticket, then have the rest of them automatically get scratched for you? Or is there a setting for this?
I'll start Lottery Ticket, wave to scratch off the first one, then for every ticket I get after that, it scratches off automatically.

It does this for me too, I wish there was a way to make it more interactive. Sometimes the first one scratches automatically too. :/

#5619 1 year ago
Quoted from epthegeek:

The ticket scratching is just based on movement in the camera. If you just move your body a bit, that counts. You don't have to specifically wave your hand.

Maybe, but mine scratches without movement.

#5625 1 year ago
Quoted from epthegeek:

You're a statue when you play? Really?

Well i know I'm not jumping around to the point that it should scratch immediately every time....

#5676 1 year ago

Nice!! Can't wait!

#5732 1 year ago

So long as they don't charge a premium "because it's pinball" price. I pay for updates on apps and games for a reasonable amount but I could see pinball machines gouging us.

#5791 1 year ago

Does the audio noise filter plug into the small board near the power supply or does it plug into the green computer speaker port on the motherboard?

#5799 1 year ago

If you aren't under warranty, they sell them on their website or you can get one on amazon.com

My wife and I like the multi-ball introduction on the old setting better, but everything else is just gold.

Quoted from Cobray:

I am thinking of moving the right outlane post down a little and making it a little less susceptible to draining on that side... am I crazy? I'm a pretty good pinball player and I'm starting to think that I need a little help on this title after owning it for a year. Or is it time to take my "Pinball Player Man card" away for thinking that?

I'm in the casual player category and I did this to both outlanes. I still drain

I put my machines on easy and lower the outlane posts mostly because my guests have much more fun that way. It doesn't matter to me either way. Also, Dialed In is a pretty hard game anyway.

#6362 1 year ago

I wish they'd have left the option to keep the old multi-ball light show. My wife and I both loved that it threw the first ball out when the lights were out like the game was trying to trick your eyes. The new code gets rid of that extra bit of cool factor for us on that.

Strange, mine goes in that hole about half the time. It gives super pop bumpers when it falls in for a short time.

Also, the Laseriffic topper for DI is really nice. I'll have one some day.

Maiden benefits from them more than any other game I've seen. It brings the light show from "meh" to amazing.

I have them on my Dialed In and it didn't add much to it. On brightest it still only adds about 10% plus a slight blue or warm tint by choice. Having the whole machine flash purple every time the QED guy gets hit makes it worth it though.

On a side note, are there times or modes when the QED guy lights stay on? Not just flash when hit?

Is there any word on drone replacements yet? I bought NIB for the warranty on my favorite game and just want to know it hasn't been abandoned. All 3 of mine are out and the ticket service informed me they aren't doing replacements right now.

#7437 8 months ago

I keep getting balls stick here on the wire. Is there supposed to be a clear protector here? There's a hole with nothing in it.

Ok, so after having some power issues with my Pingraffix Power Blades, I exchanged them for the Mirror Blade Skins. At TPF I was assured that they were easy to install, they just adhesive on. I get them in the mail and there's written instructions for a Williams machine, a set of screws, a bolt hole too small to go over the whole thing, and no adhesive to be seen. 4 days later and no response back from Joe via email.

These things are beautiful though and I'm determined to make them work. So has anyone else installed these on their machine? I've never removed the hinge bolts before and I keep hearing that machines are different on removing it. Do the Dialed In bolts remove easily or do I need to get out the rubber hammer and a point? What do I need to look out for? I'm also waiting for a set of blade protectors to come in before I install them.

The red stopped working on four lights around my phone. The other colors without red in them work. Is there something I can do about this short of ordering a new phone light case?

#8201 4 months ago
Quoted from PjM:

What does/purpose of the bluetooth doggle have in the game? Mine stopped working.

It's to connect your phone to it and use your phone for the flippers. Mine has never quite worked right and even when it does there is a flipper delay. It's one of those throw in features that just isn't worth the trouble honestly.

I'm getting a strobe effect from the spot light on the Quantum Mechanic. I can't find anything about this on the thread. Any one else have this?
