Quoted from taz:

Congratulations! I miss my Twister, believe it or not. Does your spinner magnet work okay? If not, let me know. I fought that battle over a year before I figured it out.

It's working fine, for now! Hopefully if it ever stops working, I'll be able to find a fix right here.

Wow! It only took two years to get to "Page 2" of this thread. It will be interesting to see how long it is until the next page is turned.

What is the best and most stable version of the software? I read somewhere once it wasn't the latest version but one prior? I can't find the thread where I read that though.

Can anyone help me out with some underplayfield pics? Having some issues and looking for something to reference off of. Any help is appreciated!

@fiatsrus

Quoted from FiatsRUs:

I then fabricated a piece of clear plexiglas (the edges were sanded and flame polished) that ties the two walls together using the attachment holes already available on the SS ramp protectors.

You don't happen to have any extra pieces of the plexiglas that you fabricated, do you?

It's run-of-the-mill plexiglass that you can pick up at Menards or Homedepot. I used a Dremel tool with a razor saw blade attachment to cut the shape, then sanded it with the Dremel and a sanding drum attachment. Be very careful when drilling the holes (go slowly) so you don't crack the plexiglass.

I still have a brand new , never used membrane switch for this game I would like to sell if anyone is interested p.m me

Ok, great thanks for the info. I will give it a shot.

Can the magnets in Twister be disabled in the menu, but the game still play? A customer of mine has a magnet board issue that has dragged on for some time now and I was wondering if I disable the magnets, can he still play some magnet-less games? Better than just sitting there with the power off I guess...

Thx,

Doesn’t the game play whether magnet issues exist or not? When I had issues the game still worked it’s just that the multi ball didn’t look as cool.

Hi guys, looking to add twister sometime this year if one pops up, just wondering what to look for when checking the machine out? Thanks in advance.

Check the spinning magnet multiball. Make sure it holds the balls, spins and releases them. Try to do it multiple times with ball one, ball two, ball three. We have been chasing a gremlin in ours for a while.

I agree the magnet board issues are the ones you want to look out for the most (also remember a magnet it the back is supposed to hold the ball on certain shots you should test). On mine I also had to replace the membrane switch which was $50 USD. When the balls went into the "underground" area they would occasionally not register. This problem happened about 3 months after I bought the machine and was intermittent.

Otherwise most other things are normal pinball repairs with normal parts.

Hello,
I have been a Twister owner since September, The game has played great until last weekend at a charity event. It quit ball lock and multiball, I just got a membrane switch from another pinsider ( Thank you for the switch). Going through the machine I have also found 2 dead playfield target switches. It is the ones that are enclosed in the black plastic housings. Marco is out off stock on replacements. Any thoughts or suggestions on repairing or replacing the switch inside the target units ? I have one of the units apart and have the old switch out of it. Just gotta find a replacement for it. Thank you for any help.
