I absolutely love F-14... I came close to selling mine a month or so ago and came to my senses.... No WAY! Not going to happen. It's my go to favorite game.

I have it cranked up.... The kickback is set so that it must be activated (no beginning of the game freebies!). And the playfield is currently at 8.125 degrees (can't make it any steeper!). It's so fast... Unforgiving.... Fun to punish!! I'm thinking about setting the entire rule set to extra hard.

My next move is to wire the missing flashers.... Possibly add black balls

Quoted from Dreg604:

Hmm I do have some problem pasting the correct link for the auction page. Strange. Here's ta working one, I hope.
Ebay link
I must admit I'm always a bit uncomfortable at doing this kind of promotion, but maybe someday I wish I could live with selling such mod. So I need to start somewhere.
@Pinball Nate : I indeed received some comments about the high price of the sticker, but you need to keep in mind that it's not an average bumper sticker. The dimensions is not only quite big, but I make sure to print it on the best vinyl available. Believe it or not my markup is not that big. Keep in mind that as soon as I can find a way to reduce time and cost I will adjust the selling price accordingly. Thank you for your interest in my product, It's always appreciated.

I bought one... it looks great in the machine. Very well made to boot!

Quoted from adaman25:

Great to see so many others that enjoy this game. This is my first of hopefully many machines but, this one is defiantly not going anywhere. Just upgraded with LEDs and it really makes the faded blue inserts pop. My machine came with a mismatch spinner that never worked well and finally broke and fell off. I'm wondering if any of you know where i can get a replacement. I've searched the usual sites (Marco, pinball life, and pinball resource) and can't find one. I know I can get the decals on ebay but not the actual spinner part. And just because I'm curious: Does anyone know what game this spinner came from. This was the one that came with my machine.
thanks.

No idea where that came from... but it kind of looks like lex luthor!

F-14 fell out of the Top 100! Yagov going down!!!!

Question: Who here has replaced playfield flashers with LED colored flashers (They kind that have 5-6 LEDs nested on the bulb. Anyone? Curious to know the results...

#156 6 years ago

Interesting.

Is that true of all pins, or just sys 11?

Quoted from practicalsteve:

I replaced some, not all, of my flashers with colored led ones. Just the ones on the right side, the two on top above the arch, and the one on the left. I got really nice results. I never removed the warming resistors and they work fine, but that may just mean my resistors are no good. It is taken apart at the moment for cleaning but I plan on shooting a video when its all back together and I will share it.

I was thinking the flashers in the backbox might look cool if mixed with white, yellow, and red.

I, unfortunately, exited the club last week. It became an issue of space. I look forward to the next F-14 I pick up in my pinball journey.

YOU CAN'T WIN!!!!

Which versions of ROMs allow for adjustment of the strength of the Yagov kicker? Is it only L1?
