brand new replacement playfield

Am I seeing things or does your replacement field have the spelling error ?????

#1802 4 years ago

Does anyone know how the Diagnostic for Node boards is supposed to be used? I don't have an issue but I've checked this diagnostic a few times scratching my head as to what good it is. You can go in and click through the node boards but there is no test I can see.
There is a little box on most of the boards within the DIAG screen, but its not clear what it means. If anyone has used this screen when they had a bad node board , how did this screen differ from normal?

Wow.. nice catch. That is intriguing with all this talk about supposedly different vendors, different colors, etc. I sure hope they didn't just pull an old PF and this is something like vendorX didn't have the updated screens.

Yeah its spelled wrong just like my April playfield was.

What determines the need to frequently recalibrate slimer?

I had an issue with Slimer requiring frequent recalibration.

The little box on each node diagnostic screen is the dip switches on the node board.
It appears the diagnostic screen for nodes is not interactive.

node 0 & 1 have no dips
CPU node (Node 0) (dips NA)
Cabinet node (Node 1) (dips NA)

Quoted from SilverballNut:

So I'll just chime in here a bit. I'm a pretty good player, but definitely not near the best in the DFW area. I got my GB Premium almost a week ago and we have been playing the heck out of it (over 100 games I'm sure). No center post, no elongated rails etc. I do have an Art airball protector and glad because airballs are bad when they are constant (to much risk for damage).
I did pound up the outside rails 1/4" and I don't see issues with hop overs. They happen occasionally, but they happen occasionally on every pin I own. I did move the outlane posts in to the narrower slot, but that's it.
I made sure the large rubber rings around the slingshots are below the small rubber rings on the posts. It makes the slings way more active and some of you may hate that, but I LOVE it. Makes the game harder? Probably...
So with that said, I scored 3.8 Billion last night (completed maybe 4 modes). I see no reason to make this game easier to play. It's a total blast as is. You learn to choose your shots to limit your risk. You learn to nudge. You learn to backhand targets, trap the ball with a flipper, etc to keep the ball under control. That is the key to pinball. Control.
My wife loves the game and my son loves it (he's 11). We moan when a bad ball happens, but we understand that is part of the risk and fun of playing pinball, it's random, it's hard, it's a lot of fun when things go well. It's a lot of fun when they don't go so well for who you are playing against (if you all have the right attitude).
However, do you what you want to your game. It's your game! I mod the heck out of my games if I like the mods. I don't add things that fundamentally change how the designer wanted them to play, but that's me.

Couldn't agree more. I'm average at best and can put a billion + up pretty regularly and feel really satisfied doing it. The difficulty keeps me coming back. I knew I'd play this a lot when I got it but it's been 7 weeks and I play it over and over and over. It's surpassed my expectations by leaps and bounds.

#1808 4 years ago

I have a late October premium, with a correctly spelled play field.

#1809 4 years ago

So I know there are probably a dozen posts/threads on this but I cannot seem to find them tonight so here I go....
My Slimer isn't reliably registering hits, what is the consensus on adjusting him?

Thanks

What code are you on?

#1812 4 years ago
Quoted from JimB:

What determines the need to frequently recalibrate slimer?

Slimer would be in front of the targets at the end of the game versus return to the city. Turning the machine on and off did not correct the situation, so I was forced to go into calibrate mode. It did it on a frequent enough basis to cause concern. I also may have made the situation worse when I shimmed the lower base of the bracket out .060 to get Slimer from dragging on the rail.
Works perfectly now.

brand new replacement playfield

Whose your distributor? How did the playfield replacement go?

Besides a phone call from Gary Stern, nothing has happened with my shitty GBLE playfield. Trent from Tilt has no idea what's happening either except "keep waiting"

I sent an email to Patrick Powers and Gary Stern a few weeks ago and got no reply.

#1815 4 years ago

Anyone have an issue with the scolarie brother not falling back down on his own ? It seems the little arm that pushes him back is "sticky" on mine I did adjust and seems better but if anyone has good advice that would help

I sent an email to Patrick Powers and Gary Stern a few weeks ago and got no reply.

Automated was my distributor. Stern sent me a email saying they were starting replacement program and to expect a empty box to send back with my defective playfield. 5 days later got the empty box and next day sent it in with playfield. All in all it took about 15 days from email saying program was starting till i got my new playfield here.

Id recommend calling again and talk to Pat to see if they even started the LE replacements yet. I talked to Pat other day and he said they had a few Pros getting ready to send out in conversation but no mention of LEs so im just assuming they havent started replacing LEs yet since you havent heard anything yet.

Quoted from chucksmith:

Hey everyone,
I put together this simple slideshow-video to help new owners install the Ghostbusters cliffy shooter lane protector (bottom-right).
The video tries to hit the important points such as clamping and alignment. I hope this it helpful to new users.
» YouTube video

shooter-cliffys (resized).jpg

About the LEFT side Shooter Lane cliffy...

* Remove the auto launcher
* Remove the bolts. (tap up & out with a mallet).
* Install the Cliffy - align to the holes and bolts
* Reinstall the auto-launch
* Be careful not to over tighten as it will bend the cliffy.
* Tighten until it starts to bend and then back off.

Air Ball Protector update.

As Stern is now using a new playfield, and Premiums are flying out,
I am hearing, as are others of a few games, that airballs may still occur on the 2X.

A couple people have sent in pictures, and in some cases the photo and coverage matches my game,
but this table, is still producing some airballs.
On the opposite side, are a pile of emails saying it works fine.
From all my communication, its somewhere between 3%-8% of games, are assembled differently enough
where the plastic is not stopping the 2x.

Obviously, it would be nice if there was 100% consistency in a Stern assembly, but this is not needed from their perspective.
On the side of offering a flat piece of plastic, I can offer help with suggestions how to gain a few mm, or lose a few, raise slimers boom, or repeat back what others have discovered...either bending the target forward, or shimming, as well as Additional sticky foam behind, to help, deflect and absorb.

What I know cant happen, is I have no way of knowing what game you have, nor how this will perform.
Some people may get a game where this will only help 65%-75%.
I cant make another, without finding one of these deviate games, getting it my house for a week, test protos, and start the process all over. Even if the game aspect happened, Ill be honest, I tried to get this to everyone
at the lowest price, and I simply dont have 30 plus hours to make one, that fixes the exception, and possibly raise closer to 100%.

With this in mind, mine, LSOG, or Pingraffix, perhaps others, Ill speak for them by saying we cant guarantee
our flat plastic, will fix Sterns mistake 100%....and any vendor depending on their numbers might see a
slightly different variance.

For me, I can only try to offer the best, fastest, and cheapest, but cant guarantee 100%.
If you feel you need a 100% guarantee, please chat with everyone you need to.
I will gladly refund your money with a return, if you are not happy, but I must stop an email
that comes in saying I must pay for return shipping...(its shipped free to you), or refund 100%
without a return. I have only this one item, and am not in business with many other products
or higher prices, to build in free shipping out, and free return shipping.
Im so sorry to those who expect this. I too would truly love if Walmart paid for my return shipping or gas.

Should someone find 100% perfection, please share...but so far, 90% + at this time is the best I can get.

You're a good man Art. You have helped me above and beyond what I have expected. I'm one of those edge cases where it's about 65% effective. I'm keeping my product and will try some foam to see where it gets me. I'm willing to keep sharing my experiences and help those who needs it too.

Looks great! Also a good idea for new owners to turn the ball through power down to minimum. It comes from the factory on full throttle(255) and 180 seems more appropriate

#1827 4 years ago

When I put my cliffy in, I leave the bolts in place. I just align the holes over them.

I also put down a piece of mylar in the shooter lane first. Spray it with soapy water first, makes installing it easier.

Agreed. I finally updated to 1.11 with no issues and the 1st thing I did was turn the trough to shooter-lane power down to minimum.

Thanks Chuck,

Interesting in the debate, ours is extremely flexible...absorbing energy.
Others are rigid.
So far no reports of breakage, and lots on the rigid type.

Always appreciate the support...its more my ego, than $$....cant completely feel worthless in retirement!

I updated to 1.11 Friday morning. About a dozen games so far no issues and I'm very glad I updated.
** I also adjusted my Scolari-Brothers springs on Friday and now those bad-boys drop with every hit . I should have done that sooner.
To adjust the drop targets:
* Raise the playfield "all the way up"
* Unhook the spring and attach 10-12 coils up.
* Super easy once you get the playfield up.

2 days now and its been working great.

#1836 4 years ago

First Stern issue on gble. Half my lights are flickering and out. Stern thinks thinks I have the short issue above left scoop. I put double sided tape and still not corrected. They think I may have burnt it my board. For a new game this really sucks. What a poorly built game! The worst one yet. Looks like I will need a tech to look at this issue. The game is unplugged and I did not play over the holiday weekend. Played Tales from the Crypt mostly. A great game for sure!

Did you put the tape on before or after you noticed the issue? Just curious...

I hope Stern makes it right for you.

#1838 4 years ago

After. Was unaware of the issue. It seems the machine has so many problems that I can't keep up with it. They will supply all the parts I just need to pay the tech. That's the way it goes. All my other Sterns have been fine and I go back to LOTR. I will most likely cancel my batman66 LE or sell it. Not sure yet.

On my machine the ball is entering into the pops so it's definitely hitting the rollover switch, right? It would make sense that it doesn't register if the ball rattles out since the switch is near the back of the loop

Right loop should go all the way or the post should hold it to start a mode so I think you have the same Bahavior as me.

I'm getting these 3 switch messages on a new GB Prem. Running 1.11. The switch at the top of the left ramp tests out fine. Anyone know what this is or have suggestions on other things I can test?

Ive had those switch errors since i upgraded to 1.05 which im still on. Surprised they havent been resolved in 1.11. Having said that they dont seem to affect gameplay.

Quoted from Ballypin:

Am I seeing things or does your replacement field have the spelling error ?????

What's the spelling error? Now I want to check my playfield.

Check your rollover switch you may need to bend it up a little. Same with all switches not always registering, just bend the control arm a little. Had issue with my subway and ball launch

Quoted from mandelbloom:

Right loop should go all the way or the post should hold it to start a mode so I think you have the same Bahavior as me.

My right loop shots rarely make the entire loop. Most times they end up in the bumpers... even hard shots. Is there not some function that is sometimes directing to bumpers and sometimes letting pass all the way around?

I looked there is a gate there so I guess it's some times closed.
