We're back!

After a disaster in our datacenter took down our server, we are now running Pinside on a brand new server. However, things may not work as expected as we are still polishing the playfield and adjusting some switches! We might be switching to maintenance mode a few times. Please see this forum topic for more info.

Well, this button is a "no go" for two reasons: 1) It requires that some washer be designed for it in order to not just fall in the larger outside hole (something I could definitely 3D print if I wanted) or it is just too far recessed, and 2) it is not deep enough, so no way to get the nut on the back.

Quoted from TheCapn:

This is the one I have installed. Only thing I don't like is that it doesn't light up. But it fits and works perfectly.

Looking more closely at yours it looks like it sits recessed into the larger hole, but still extends out - is this correct? Did you figure out how to wire the light?

Quoted from Mr_Tantrum:

My button required NO modifications. Fits right in. I haven't worked on the lighting for it - I don't think it will work. The button is designed to allow power to go from one point to another. Where as with pinball we are directing a DC signal to the MPU. Someone suggests hooking up the GI to the the third lug. no. I'm not connecting 8v AC to the NC connection of a switch. That won't work. The controlled lighting needs a designated ground as well as the switch needs its designated ground.

I new Getaway owner recently asked if I could make a roadway decal for the large clear plastic above the ball lock. He referenced this post from TheOnlyest which I had somehow overlooked: https://pinside.com/pinball/forum/topic/getaway-club-dispatch-run-a-make-on-license-plate-kingpin/page/99#post-3584841

After PM'ing TheOnlyest, he graciously agreed to allow me to reproduce and sell roadway decals for this plastic. I stylized the graphic some, and created a reverse decal to be adhered to the underside of the plastic. I figured this was the best approach since it would give the appearance of an OEM plastic and since many of us affix cars to the top the underside decal would not be damaged in the process.

I create these decals using my typical high quality materials and process, and round cut the corners to better align with the plastic. For installation simply remove the plastic from the game (2 screws), clean the bottom of the plastic, remove the adhesive backing from the top of the roadway decal, carefully align, then "roll" decal on from one end to the other applying even pressure (a small squeegee or credit card is perfect for this). After the decal is applied you'll need to use a razor knife to cut out the screw holes (I don't pre-cut the holes as some plastics may not align the same). When done, re-install the new decaled plastic and enjoy!

I'm offering these for $12 each including US Postage ($15 for outside US). As always, please PM me if interested in purchasing.

Got a lot of decals from Mr_Tantrum and they are amazing! Well done sir!

Also got run LED's for the pop bumpers.

Honestly the mountain decal and the led lights add so much to the game visually! The hairpin decal is awesome. Everything is great! Love the supercharger decal being so much larger and better than the original.

Quoted from arolden:

Column 3 actually feeds two switch wires. J206-3 for playfield switches and J212-3 for cabinet switches. The shifter is a cabinet switch so it is fed by J212. Is there continuity from J212-3 to the shifter? If there is, that eliminates a wiring issue.
You will have to start inspecting traces on the MPU. Since column 3 is the issue, see if there is continuity from U20-16 to J206-3 for starters.

There was/is tone from j212 to the shifter.

Now I'll try going from j206 to u20. I think I've done that and it was ok. But I'll check again as it's been a couple weeks and I'm not sure.

#10463 1 year ago

BTW, if anyone has a ratted original SC decal and would like to replace with the same, I make these reproductions for $15 shipped. Just PM if interested.

Quoted from EStroh:

I wasn't planning on uploading my other 3 sound packages to the PinSound site because I figure Timothee and Nicolas are getting tired of all the HS2 submissions. However I received a couple PM requests after all these posts today so here goes:
V2 is my orchestration using Rob Zombie's "More Human Than Human" as the main theme and Rammstein as everything else. Make sure the kids are in bed when you get to the ball lock music. "More Human Than Human" can be heard here:
V3 is my orchestration that features the music of Joe Satriani. I'm using a few versions of "Summer Song" as the main theme, which can be heard here:
V4 is my orchestration featuring all the music from Total Nuclear Annihilation. I have this pin and really love the music. I used a few versions of "Heat Exchanger" as the main theme:
All of my sound packages are instrumentals, as my preference is to just hear the music and let the pin's callouts provide any vocal elements. If this isn't your thing, you might want to skip my V2 sound package. I also did a bit of work on the SFX and Vocal sounds on all of these as well, similar to what I've done before on my V1 and V5 packages.
I just uploaded these and they haven't made it to the main download page yet. If you want to give them a try you'll have to get them from the forum site: http://pinsound-community.org/forum/index.php?/files/. Send me a PM and let me know what you think if you give them a try. Thanks!

I gave the Total Nuclear Annihilation mix a go, its really good. Check out the short video of me playing Total Nuclear Annihilation mix on Youtube -

Thanks for the cool mix

Using the level on the right side of the playfield, what have yall found is the best slope/angle/setup for this game?

Sorry if this is common knowledge. ‍♂️

Quoted from Ecw0930:

Manual recommends between 6 to 6.5 degrees. That's between the first and second line on the bubble level. Adjust higher or lower to taste.

The "PinGuy" app works perfectly for this. Download for free from relevant phone brand store, put on level surface and calibrate, then place in center of playfield (glass off) and app will help you calibrate side-to-side and front-to-back levelling. What's nice is that the voice on the app continually calls out both axis levelling measurements, so you can be under the pin correcting the leg adjustments without having to continually bob up and down to check level.

6.5 degrees is perfect for this game IMO.

Still no Android version as far as I can tell

Oh, sorry. That was an assumption on my part.

So, to modify my previous post, download the app on your iPhone or find a relative/friend who has an iPhone and invite them over to play pinball. Before you get started tell them about this cool app you heard about and have them download it so you can show them. In the process of demonstrating the cool app, actually level your pin - they'll just think you are giving them some real insight what it's like to own a pinball machine.

Thanks!

For those that don't know, not only did Scott Danesi create Total Nuclear Annihilation (the pin), but he also created all the music for it as well. He continues to be very active on the forums for his game and is constantly improving it based on customer feedback and feature requests. A lot of pinheads dismiss TNA due to it's lack of toys or ramps, but it is a VERY FAST game (like HS2) and a blast to play. I believe it is the only pin with a co-op mode, which is great to play with someone with a different skill set.

I have Android. But I did get a leveling app. I set it at about 7.2. But tonight I leveled it out a little. I didn't like not making the shots and at the top it seemed slow. I think I have it dialed in right now. Might check the angle tonight and share.

It's skillfull, but mismatched like most of the other ones that make use of photorealistic art. Getaway is NOT NOT NOT photorealistic. No matter how skillful the maker. Please apply your skill to matched art and I am sure the result will be great!

I would concur with this. I've seen a variety of Getaway alternate translites that have been well done composition and quality wise (this one is quite original and well done artistically), but I would really like to see something that was in more of the overall style of the artwork on the game. Call it "cartoonish" maybe, but defiantly not photo-realistic.

I do hear what you are saying. When you see it full size it has a much more graphic style appearance. I realize it doesnt match the playfield art style but thats not all too uncommon in pinball like Attack from Mars for example. It really doesnt look photographic in physical viewing and closer to a graphic render. I cant hand draw so this is the closet I could come with images I could hunt down and use. I had fun making it.

Do you need me to call 911 . . . looks like your vehicle rolled over on its side!

Wait a minute, you appear to be upright in that last pic - whew, glad you are safe (honestly, I was more concerned about the pin than your well-being).

With that out of the way, congratulations! We have a great club hear: passionate owners, experienced technical insight, a multitude of owner created mods (shameless self-promoting plug), and we even like to take friendly jabs at each other on occasion.

Alright soldering on a battery pack and it doesn’t work. Sometimes these things work and sometimes they don’t.. Is there a different spot to solder these packs onto? What’s the trick? I am getting the correct voltages on both sides of the board too but the memory still doesn’t hold on the game.. Three AA battery pack holder reading 4.8v

Yes, but your meter is showing a negative voltage. Swap the two wires on the board. The red and black are hooked up incorrectly on the battery holder.

Are your batteries in the holder correct? Does the holder (China) have the red/black wires reversed. Check the holder disconnected from the CPU until you get the correct reading, then connect it to the expensive CPU board.

#10489 1 year ago

Here’s a different machine and it still doesn’t work. Higher voltage different style battery pack.

This one is 6.4v because it’s a double coin battery.

Can you pop the board off and measure the voltages on the back? Possibly a bad solder connection?

#10498 1 year ago

You don't have the wires connected the same as the last board.

Always check new parts before installing, some bad parts have caused board damage.

#10500 1 year ago

Okay yes, I am getting the same voltage on the backside of the board as the front. I tired soldering it differentLy to see if it would work by switching the wires to the other positive and negative sides of the battery. Regardless it’s doesn’t work..
