Quoted from sugarhillabe:

In regular mode, if you start multiball but don't hit a jackpot, the target won't come up. If you do hit one or more jackpots, then the target comes up and you have to hit it to reopen the Caster's Club

Thanks man!

#2253 51 days ago

Finally figured out my gi short issue - spilled solder on a lamp socket. Got the game finally back together and working 100% this weekend. Well, more like 95%. There are a few more things to sort out but good enough for now. Did a deep shop job - full pf teardown, fixed a bunch of stuff, rebuilt flippers, knocked off a lot of funk, and more. Game was filthy and neglected. Lots of new parts, Titan rings, Comet leds, spotlights, and Monster Fish mod. New plastic quality was a bit disappointing so kept as much original as possible. Lit the plastic over the right pop and the indian in the canoe on the left. Two spotlights over the slings. I used translucent pop bodies and skirts with leds that shine up and down. Looks awesome! Still need to sort out weak launcher and ghosting leds. Never had a game ghost this bad. Debating getting a bunch of non-ghost leds or the ocd boards.

My drop target wasn't dropping when multiball started, so you had to hit caster club twice to light jackpot.

There is setting in Test mode for up and down on the drop target.

I had to tweek the bracket and play with the spring to get it to be able to drop in the test settings.

#2255 50 days ago

Hi thanks guys for you help, have managed to apply the internal side art.
With some good advice.
I seem to have opened a can of worms with the drop target, what a great little feature it’s is iv had this game years and never knew about it, iv now played the with settings and each setting activates it differently. Iv now left in on hard and it now pops up when the game starts.

Is there a list of updates/fixes for this revision?

#2258 45 days ago

I found your other posts, looks like it fixes ghosting and some text. Thanks

#2259 43 days ago

Anyone looking for a CPR gold playfield?
PM me.

I've got the D-6 rom. It had the led fix and the extra ball fix. Send me a pm...

#2262 40 days ago

Anyone able to burn me the latest rom with the non ghost led fix?

#2263 39 days ago
Quoted from jawjaw:

I'd like this too (I think). Everything is good for me, except my "I" rollover and corresponding "rear playfield bulb" are always on, but just slightly dimmer than usual.

Does this fix this?

I get my roms for Dave Astill here in Canada. You can find him on Pinside astill. Nice guy. He should be able to fix you up even in the US.

That is ghosting. The LIE inserts ghost bad on mine, too, but pretty much every inserts ghosts. Ghosting patch is supposed to help but never tried one. I never had ghosting problems with other games so not sure why that is. I'm running L4 rom and not sure if L5 is better with LEDs.

Yeah it's the only one that ghosts on mine. Very strange!

#2267 39 days ago

I swear, FT ghosts worse than any other machine. I just installed the LED OCD board, which takes care of the ghosting and makes the LEDs look much more natural. Not cheap, but this pin is my baby! I also installed the Monster Fish mod. I'm not a big MOD/figure guy, but this one looks pretty good and is not too obtrusive.

#2268 38 days ago

Just got my new D6 rom installed tonight. Many thanks to Inkochnito for the file and to my friend Bryan who burned the chip for me. It works like a charm.

Can you notice any difference front m the previous ROM? LED ghosting?

#2270 37 days ago
Quoted from Guinnesstime:

I had slight ghosting on 2 lights, one of which caused my monster fish eyes to glow dimly all the time, so it was noticeable. Have not seen it since the D-6 was installed.

So who the got the new boat ramp? I sent a pm....no response. Thanks dickhead.
Are there repro boat ramps available?

#2272 28 days ago

They are available but like every thing else in this hobby they are not cheap. Can’t direct you to a site but I saw them at Allentown and York show last year so repro’s do exist.

#2273 28 days ago
Quoted from Gryszzz:

I sent a pm....no response. Thanks dickhead

I'm pretty sure he now really regrets not selling it to you.

#2274 27 days ago

There’s repros and there is usually some used floating around.

Freshened up with new rubber and Cointaker LEDa. (Premiums and retro warm whites)

inCollage_20190312_190218339 (resized).jpg
#2278 5 days ago

Thanks. It also plays better. I never changed the black rubber, visually it looked ok when I picked it up. Then as I started removing it, I noticed it had taken on the shapes of the posts and such. Circlular rubber probably shouldn't look like a triangle when you remove it from a slingshot.

#2279 5 days ago

Does anybody carry the Gate that goes in the Caster Club?

#2280 5 days ago
Quoted from wayout440:

It looks like some of the inserts have different colors from left to right. Are these two pictures of the same game? - do you have some color changing insert leds?

Quoted from branlon8:

Same game, no color changers. Taken during lamp test flashing, probably a camera illusion and/or bleeding.

Its a drop target

#2283 5 days ago
Quoted from northerndude:

Yes, but there is a gate behind the drop target I believe.

Yes there is. Confirm the part number in the manual and search here. I know marco has various gates.

Has anybody here pulled the mylar off a Diamond Coated playfield with any success?

I've looked through the manual and haven't been able to find the part number. I made one based on the pieces I have from my broken one, but it isn't hanging quite right. I will mess around with it, but figured if I could find one i'd have the correct shape. Thanks for the link though, I do appreciate that!

Quoted from transprtr4u:

I did mine last year. I tried cold and hot methods, both gave me the same result.

Insert text came off with the Mylar on a handful of inserts, I also had a baby chip near an insert. A small piece of painted PF came up with it, beware! Go slow! Pull the Mylar against the grain.
If you want to see
Exactly what happened go to my Fish Tales refurb thread.

I only needed to buy a set of insert decals before I cleared my PF

Here is a photo of mine. You can see it is a "W" shape, and I assume there is a right angle bend on one of the arms that lets it only swing in.

I will have to dig a while to find an assembly pic. Mine needs a vacuuming!! Anyone have a spare casters club plastic?

I've had my FT allmost 20 years and never realised there was meant to be a gate there

Im going to look at mine tmrw interesting

#2292 3 days ago

Mine doesn’t have that gate. It looks homemade. ?

#2293 3 days ago

I found mine couldn't see it at first its as though its stucks up dont believe its functional next time i remove the glass

Quoted from john17a:

Hmmm. Maybe mine is stuck up also? I will look closer.
I guess it would make sense to have a gate to prevent rejects of the casters club shot.

#2295 3 days ago
Quoted from tominator:

I definitely don't have one . I couldn't see " wire gate " in the manual , the closest I could find was " ball gate " at the top of the catapult . Because I don't have one that must be the reason why I haven't been able to crack 2 billion .

Quoted from john17a:

The casters club is hard enough to hit. That would stink if a good shot bounced out.

I found mine was stuck up when shopping it. Gave it a little tweak so it would move freely, and have not had any issue for years.

#2297 3 days ago

I have the gate on mine, for the sake of helping, I did try to find replacements... seems this part is unobtanium, May have to make your own,sadly

#2298 3 days ago

I noticed that TAF and TZ have W shaped gates at ramp entrances, but not quite the same.

#2299 3 days ago
Quoted from tominator:

It does look home made, but a wire gate like that definitely belongs there.

I peered in and I have the gate too.
