Great mod. I need to get one.
I made some stadium style lights as a test run out of those walmart light strips. While they don't offer full coverage, I think they turned out great for 15.Pics once I clean up the mounting.

Just installed the interactive JD Sniper mod from Medisinyl. Took 2 minutes to install and it looks aaammmazing!!!
Thanks Greg!!!

Thank you Chip! The orange looks awesome, and thus far, you're the only one to request that color--the vast majority have been yellow or white.

I love adding mods to games, but I try not to clutter them up...Im a believer that less is more...BUT, in this instance it's a badass comic-based game with crazy characters, so I figured this may be the game to add some figurines and simulate some Dredd-based battles. I found someone selling a complete Mega City set from the early 90's, the figures stand about 2-2.5" tall, and I went ahead and did it.
I kept them on the sides so there's no visual interference of the ball during gameplay, and during gameplay they don't stand out, which I like. But it's a newer world under glass now with added action, and characters...and while I know theres some who don't care for this kind of mod addition, for me, in this case, i'm really digging on it!!!

Happy to finally join the club!

Of course within a day of me having the game, I overtightened the right plastic ramp screw and snapped the tab in half. Luckily it broke clean as it was pre stressed/cracked when I got it.

I was able to get it to hold with some gorilla glue, but short of buying a new ramp, I wonder if there is any other way to help strengthen this area. I dont believe the cliffy will help in this instance.

Actually a Cliffy is exactly what you need. He has one that's exactly for this situation

Thanks, ill hit him up then. The one on his site didnt look to address the mounting tab.

Appreciate it!

#2808 7 months ago

Had a similar problem with mine, the tab got a crack and I wanted to prevent it from spreading or breaking off altogether. To lighten the stress on the (epoxied) tab, I put a little soft felt on the metal ramp end and attached the tab to it with a just slightly tightened zip tie instead of the screw. Holding up fine in heavy use for a couple of years now!

Still on the lookout for one of these. Game is a player so used original or decent repop is just fine. Let me know if you have an extra, thanks!

I sold my Dredd. Sad day but it went to a good home.
I still have a new left missile plastic for sale. $25 plus $8 postage from Australia.

I would suggest turning the opacity down on the background a smidge so the text pops out. The image is very busy and maybe hard to read once installed.

#2818 5 months ago

Thanks, ArcadiusMaximus!

Is a good idea beacuase I´m printing all my custom cards over chrome vinyl.

Ditto. I don't use many of the custom cards because the text is so hard to read due to the text getting lost in the busy background.

Quick question. The links you provided look like a static screen shot. Is there a file to download?

Weird issue on my Judge. ONLY the dead world solenoid fires. Nothing else. Would this be a CPU issue? Power cycle and one out of 20 times it will work properly. Also I'm an idiot and broke my glass and not the translite. Who sells blank glass?

When you say dead world solenoid are you talking about the whole mechanism rotating? If so that is a motor. I would first check your fuses if all the solenoids are out.

Any local glass shop should be able to help. Get tempered 27 inch x 18-7/8 inch x 1/8 inch thick.

I was just finishing up a kit for this game. This game has the fewest GI bulbs of any game I've ever worked on, and wow is the center of the playfield dark. Spotlights make a huge difference!

The manual lists "Cursed Earth" flashers, that are under the playfield ("under globe"). I've looked several times and can't find them. Do they actually exist, or is it possible these got left in the manual and didn't make it into the production models?

I believe they are under the playfield on the long board that houses both regular bulbs and some flashers. It is long and has many bulbs on each side, some are flashers.

You're absolutely right, thank you!! They're mixed in amongst the GI sockets that illuminate the subway below the globe. One of them is the 2nd down on the left side. The other is 2nd from the bottom on the right side.

I've got a couple of wires to repair on my Dredd. The first is one that tore loose at some point near the back of the playfield underside. I PRESUME it's to go back into the diverter solenoid where you can also see a broken wire, but I can't see if the wire colour matches to be certain, nor could I determine that from the manual.

Secondly, there's the cable with three wires going into a plug in the second pic that isn't plugged into anything, and I actually couldn't find where it plugs into. Any help indicating where that should go would appreciated too! Maybe it's down to inexperience but I couldn't find that in the manual either.

Yeah I have that rogue plug as well, and I think maybe even another one with no mate under the playfield. I'm assuming they don't plug into anything, but were probably for some other feature that was removed pre-production. Anybody know what these plugs were intended for?

I thought it might be something like that, but wanted to make sure - I know it's fairly common with pins for plugs or pin headers to go unused.

I should have mentioned - my deadworld doesn't turn either, which I presume is down to either that loose plug or broken wire! (Hopefully not a broken gearbox -_- )

#2843 4 months ago

I had a broken wire that prevented my Dead World from functioning as well. Had to fix some broken wires around the outhole trough too! What's up with all the disconnected wires on our Dredds?? haha!

#2844 4 months ago

I found some decent resolution wiring photos and it looks like that green/white wired plug is indeed meant to be unplugged. https://www.flickr.com/photos/61565401@N08/with/8566778169/

Sadly I still can't tell for sure if the brown wire I've got loose should be soldered onto the diverter solenoid. I'm 99% sure by process of elimination, but if anyone can check their Dredd when they get a chance I'd really appreciate it.

According to the manual it should be a brown/orange wire.

Anyone have the subway switches not score intermittently? I think it’s just a weird thing with how the holes are cut into the subway.

Quoted from cocomonkeh:

Yes, haven’t looked into it as why it may be happening though. Seems as if it goes in fast it might not register but if it goes in slow it will.

#2848 3 months ago

It’s new switch time, don’t fiddle with it, don’t adjust it, just replace it and call it good.

Also, the screws to attach the topper to the bracket?

Thinking about joining club Dredd. However, I have small kids. Is there any swearing or anything that could be considered remotely scary on this game?
