Quoted from 0geist0:

I thought that the ball lock was supposed to be the hideout?
These do look really good though.

What better place to hideout than the Donut Shop? In other words - right in plane sight where the cops hangout . . . they would never suspect you being there.

#4702 3 years ago
Quoted from Mr_Tantrum:

Okay, I added a couple more. Personally, I don't like #6, but am surprised with #7 as I thought the spacing would detract. However, after seeing it, I like it. Can we please get a consensus from those who wish to purchase as I don't want to leave anyone out?
For what it's worth, my top 2 choices are #7 & #3
Also, I lightened the windows a little so the neon sign would show up better. I originally was going to do blue windows (similar to Duncan DH cover), but 1) it detracts from the neon and 2) I like the black better inside the pin. Thoughts on this?

Whatever you go with is fine with me.

#4703 3 years ago

Aren't there three different animations for each ball being locked? How would it look to have the art from the DMD displayed in a comic book block style on a decal to go on the cover?

My game came with a Donut Heaven mod and I don't appear to have that cover. Where can I find one?

Okay guys, here is my final version. I will post to download site & these are the ones I will produce. Thanks for everyone's input and patience!

#4706 3 years ago

I like it! I'm glad the cops were hiding out last night after my pinball league. I made it home in record time.

#4707 3 years ago

It might be too late to chime in, but my thoughts,

Donut Heaven Doughnuts does look weird, so changing 'doughnuts' makes sense, but graphically I don't think having two words in the bottom line works, one word with even kerning looks much better. So if I were to pick, I'd find a single word for the bottom row. 'Bakery' would work, or 'patisserie' if you want to get fancy. The simplicity of 'bakery' makes more sense if it works graphically. But you might need a wider font and slightly wider kerning to avoid having dead space.

#4708 3 years ago

Also, could you make the icon in pinkish red instead of purplish red, our CEO likes pinkish.

Quoted from EvanDickson:

I appreciate all the input, but I've already gone to press.

At first, I too wanted a single word, but I don't really mind what we settled on. After all, the design is an homage to Krispy Kreme not an exact copy.

Regarding the coloring, it will look a little different on monitors and even in print. I color picked from actual images available on the web. I basically noticed 2 shades: a lighter color and a darker color (which did not seem to be as prevalent). The image I ended up choosing my colors from is the one that is on the header of the actual Krispy Kreme website.

As a FYI, these are going to be a very limited run and not sold for real profit. I am not a company, and not looking to make any more than to compensate me for mailing these out and a little bit of my time to create the artwork. In the end, it adds a little variety and levity to the game, and what better theme to have for a donut shop then KK?

#4710 3 years ago

I think it's cool, Mr. T. KK, to me is the definitive donut store, in America. DD is 2nd for sure. Tim Horton is really good too, but I think only available to our Canadian friends. Have no idea what a country outside of the US would be, if any.

Tim Hortons is the king around Western New York, put a lot of DD out of business. Krispy Kreme stores are also gone.

I was just joking about the coloring thing, some level of self awareness that I was being nerdy in noticing spacing and layout.

Heh, that's hilarious. When I lived / worked in Toronto, any time someone from the office travelled to the US, they were obligated to return with 6 dozen krispy cremes. But I find Tim Horton's is gross.

Okay, I'm over the game and willing to talk to you again . . . I hate that Aaron Rodgers!

#4718 3 years ago

Ok so again, where does one find the original cover for the ball lock?

It prob wouldnt look good because of space issues but if the ball lock cover showed an image for each ball, I think it would look good. Having a donut shop as the ball lock looks good but doesn't make much sense as it's only the second ball being locked that has our driver doing a drive by of the donut shop.

Besides the obvious like Marco, I wouldn't know where to look. But it is just a bent piece of stainless steel. You could fab one pretty easily I'd think. Someone with a machine shop or just a good set of tools could make one.

Definitely could be made from some stainless, there's really not a lot to the plate to create, as long as the angle's are correct pretty much all good.

Hey that looks right! Thanks, mate!

We're at the bottom of the world ya know mate I guess it's how they justify petrol prices over here if you're out in the boonies miles away from the cities, mind you, the next town further away can be cheaper Go Figure

Same here with gas prices here too, but it can be 15 cents a gallon cheaper 5 miles away and there are 2 big refineries within 15 miles of my house.

Top 6 reasons to move to Texas:
- Great weather year around (it can get hoy during the summer)
- Diverse Geography (lots to do, see, and enjoy)
- Affordable Realestate
- Wide open spaces with the convenience of the big city
- No state income tax
- CHEAP GAS (Petro for those of you down under)

You know mr_tantrum after looking at that "hideaway" metal from mjw , I'm wondering if the two cutouts would line up with the windows in your Donut Heaven graphic? If so, I then wonder if I were to put a light strip under it, would the light pass through the graphic and appear to light up the Donut Heaven shop? AND, if that would look right, I would connect that light strip to the Lock lamp, so that when the Lock lamp is lit, the Donut Heaven light would come on inside the Donut Heaven shop. Would be pretty cool if that were to work out. Thoughts?

EDIT: After looking at both side by side, they don't appear to line up. I might put it in there anyway just to see how it would look, and mask the inside if light comes through where it shouldn't.

Now if someone would take it upon themselves to make a custom metal piece so the openings for the windows and door would do that I'd buy one.

Well, the answer is no as that was never a thought as by default there is no backlighting (plus they are just not positioned correctly for all the windows/doors in my designs. I've seen some designs that have these spots cutout in their decals, but my preference is to cover them in my designs. It is, however, and interesting idea but getting closer to the Mezel mod. What would work, IMHO, is if someone designed a clear plastic version of the cover that you put the decal on. You could "spot" the glass areas that would make them glow (plus they would be printed in lighter colors than the rest of the graphic).

#4743 3 years ago

I like your design better than that other one.

Chris that is all true ... BUT ... then you would NOT live in "TITLETOWN USA" and NOT have the 13 Time "WORLD CHAMPION" Green Bay Packers as your football team!

You also would NOT have the LEGENDARY & HISTORIC "Lambeau Field" (The Frozen Tundra) as your shrine!

posted this in the main forum, but I'm getting crickets. Thought maybe I would try here!

I recently replaced the bulbs on my Getaway: High Speed 2 with CT LED's, and also replaced the crank assembly under the right flipper. I did not replace the solenoid, just the crank assembly and plastic sleeve that sits in the solenoid.

I got the machine put back together, and made it through 2 balls before the plunger stopped working. The plunger on the Getaway is a "shifter" that you push up or down to launch the ball. The shifter has other uses in-game, too - to shift gears during regular play, or shifting during video mode. These alternative uses still work, but the ball will not launch.

In my attempt to diagnose, I noticed that the mars lamp is not rotating as it had been. It still lights up, but does not rotate.
I did the solenoid test and nothing pulses on either the plunger solenoid or the mars lamp solenoid. I don't really know what to do from here. I tried switching the F104 fuse with F105, just to see if maybe I had burned one out. No change in the solenoid test.

Does anyone have an idea what's going on? Or where I should go from here as far as testing goes? Any help is appreciated

It could be a fuse, the fuses are as follows...

F101-F105, F116 = SB3A
F106-F113 = SB 5A
F114 = FB 8A
F115 = SB .75A

You need to do a fuse test with your multimeter to see if they are working but it is important to use the correct fuses.

You can try to do a test on the shooter, sometimes you'll get a shifter error and it may cause it to stop working, running the test and moving the shifter will clear the error but I wouldn't think it would work in the other phases if that was the case.

Also, and more likely the cause, do a switch test on the shooter lane, sometimes the wire will come off, or the diode is broken off so the switch won't register when the ball is in the shooter lane and it will just sit there, after a while it will launch the ball in a ball search. Check to see if everything is intact.

Mars lamp motors are known to fail after sometime, it could be that the motor is done but I'd test the fuses 1st.

Edit: I'll have to review more details on my schematics to see what goes where for the Mars lamp.

Edit 2: Check to see that the wires are all connected on the solenoid for the shooter, messing around with the PF and the flippers could have caused something to break off...

Quoted from tiltmonster:

My immediate thought is also a fuse

#4748 3 years ago

Thanks for the reply! like I said, I tried switching fuses around, f103-f105 (the lamp is f103, the plunger is f104), so I don't think it's that. I also checked for loose wires around the plunger and couldn't find anything. I'm VERY new to pinball ownership, so not real sure what I'm looking for. I will try the rest of your suggestions. Thanks again!

#4749 3 years ago
Quoted from red-line:

You said that the mars lamp motor is out (F103) and the plunger (F104) and you swapped the fuses between the 2......BUT if both fuses are blown that won't help you. As Tilt said, test both with a multi meter or if you have some 3A SB fuses, just change them over and see what happens. If it's a short somewhere you only risk blowing the fuses again.

#4750 3 years ago

Nah, I switched 3 of them, I put f105 in one of those slots
