Quoted from Kenz:

Just wondering if Pinsound has a good mix for FishTales ?

Great question! Anybody have one in their game?

Quoted from tomdotcom:

Rolling backflip sure, but from a dead cradle, no fn way. Maybe fluke it once in 100 somehow. But it's def not normal imo from every fishtales I've played. My GC is 3.8bill, zero cradled CC's. Also Merry Fn xmas everyone!

It's def possible on my FT. I have done it plenty of times , did it earlier today. It's a super tight shot .... I don't make it every attempt ....but it can be done.

Anyone have a monster fish mod. Laying around?

Spot on . I get half my lock balls that way . I don't look up , I just look at the middle of the beer can at the bottom of the sling .

#2756 17 days ago

Very weird, my high score is 3.9billion, I know what I'm doing lol. I can never backhand it on my game from a straight cradle, it would make the game way too easy I would think.

I guess I'll have to try it on mine some more, I just always assumed it was impossible so haven't attempted it a ton, the angle seems impossible on mine. Hitting the extra ball standup is as close as I can get from a straight cradle.

#2757 17 days ago

Found this in one of the rulesets, so I guess it depends on the machine.

"The most important shot to master (and the one that needs the most practice) is the Caster's Club. If you can get it down, then you'll do very well. Of course the captive ball and Long Cast are very important in conjunction as well. There are several machines around that let you backhand the Caster's Club from the right flipper. The only machine that I've been able to do this on so far is a PAPA tournament machine."

That's weird I just assumed it was one of the shots you can do . I didn't know you could shoot off the right post on the centre boat into the Casters Club , I'll have to give that a try .

#2759 17 days ago

I can't backhand that on my FT, with the bottom of the flippers aligned with the roll pins like normal. Next time I am messing with the flippers, I will set them a little higher and give it a try. Pretty sure flipper angle would affect this.

I'm wondering if the exact position of the sling post or even thickness of rubber could come into play - could be talking just 1 or 2 mm of variance to allow the shot. Not all playfields are gonna be drilled EXACTLY mm perfect/the same.

#2761 17 days ago

Backhanding the lock is near impossible on mine. My flippers are aligned to the pins and freshly rebuilt with correct coils. Maybe it has something to do with rubber used. I use stock red rubber. I've done it a few times on accident but never when I actually tried. Prefer it that way because game would be too easy if you could. It's much more satisfying to get dialed in to the shot using the left flipper. Love hitting that shot off a plunge and feel it thunk into the scoop.

#2762 16 days ago

Someone mentioned bouncing off the boat rubber. I’ve had better luck doing that honestly.

#2763 16 days ago

Hey langless28. That game used to be able to backhand the caster club shot at a 85-90% and I prob averaged 2-3 Multiballs per game. Once I replaced it with new flipper mechs it was no longer possible (5% shots would go in) and like stated, learned to ricochet off boat rubber I thought it played much harder and left it like that as I remember reading that you should not be able to backhand that shot.

Hope the game is treating you well.

Regarding the debate on 'reel belt vs regular rubber'

My FT when I got it had a thin black rubber belt much like the ones used on F14 topper lamps. Anyway it was sometimes slipping, mis aligning. I tried replacing with regular rubber - had same problems. I then replaced with the original style belt. Works perfect.

I know people have theirs working with rubber. In fact I had a FT years ago which worked perfectly well with a regular rubber ring.

But I'm in the original belt style camp now. It only cost a few $ .

#2766 6 days ago

Where can I find the g-5 rom. Cant seem to find it with Google. I did find a link but it was no longer active.

#2768 6 days ago

Thank you. I was thinking it was the top one. But wasn't a 100% sure.

#2769 6 days ago

If you are looking for the version with the EXTRA BALL text adjusted, you need to have version D-6.
The file also has the LED ghosting fix in place.
I've uploaded a copy to the ipdb, but it will take some time before it's up there.
For now I've send you a PM for the file.

Put in the lighted pinball mods speaker panel tonight. Chuck is a great guy to deal with and this thing looks pretty slick!
The panel itself and the speaker lights are on separate strips, so you can dim/brighten and change their colors independently.

I just got a CPR Fish Tales mirrored Backglass for Christmas and it doesn’t seem to fit the original trim which was used on the translite. One of the side trim pieces cracked a tiny bit when I tried to put it on the new backglass so I stopped and put the translite back on the machine. I emailed CPR and they told me they used to use 3mm glass but have upgraded to 4mm for production to avoid warping. I measured and I got 4mm glass, which is thicker than the translite glass and thinner than 3/16” glass.
Has anyone else had this problem and how did you solve it?
I’m considering buying 3/16” trim & lift channel and using friction tape on the molding to decrease the size and make it fit better. Or could I use System 11 trim? I don’t know how wide that is. Or would using a heat gun on the current trim to soften it up work? To be honest I’m not a big fan of the idea of forcing the old trim since my current side trim tried to split when I tried to install it on Christmas.
Thanks for your help,
Tina

Discussed in the CPR Backglass thread.
Solution is the System 11 Trim, Pinballlife has it.

For how much that back glass costs it should come with the trim .

I've uploaded a copy to the ipdb, but it will take some time before it's up there.

It's there.

I make the offer that if someone on pinside or RGP wants to share a File by submitting it to the IPDB such that you'd like it to show up there pretty quick to facilitate a discussion you are having, go ahead submit it the normal way but also drop me an email with something catchy for a Subject line like, say, "FishTales ROM to share on pinside" where I don't have to actually open the email to see the request, put there as a way to get my attention to its timeliness, and I'll work it next in line.

I can do that.

The rom file with the EXTRA BALL text adjusted is now on the ipdb.
It is PinMame Romset D6.
This file also has the led ghosting fix in place.

I need this D6 chip!
Who can burn these and mail me one, gladly pay for the service.
Once I have rom, I can help get it colored for Colordmd. However, I don't even know yet if this affects any animations.

I just ordered one from Astill 2 days ago after reading this forum page. I've bought a few ROMs from him over the years, highly recommended.
