Quoted from Litedpinballmods:

We have our version of the original artwork done for our Lighted Speaker Panel for Ghost Busters. It will be on our website in a day or 2 Pictures of many colors and video of all colors will be on our website. www.lightedpinballmods.com[quoted image]

Looks great. Love seeing new products targeted for GB, in the GB thread.

Finally got around to cutting a new airball protector (the old one was too close to slimmer and was chewing up his butt) I went the extra mile on the logo this time and used 3 different acrylics. They fit together very tight and I applied some adhesive to the gaps on the back. We’ll see it it holds up in gameplay!

Hello all, I'm working my way through this thread looking for the best solution for the airball issues and so far it looks like there are 3 different solutions.

1. the plastic airball protectors
2. the target wedges
3. the target brackets

I would prefer to go with either the 2 or 3 route but looking for people's experiences with all three and the pro/cons associated with each. This might be a dead horse in which case i apologize.

Cheers.

#5306 12 months ago

The 3D printed target brackets are a must.

#3 (the shapeways printed angled brackets) is the best choice. Cuts the flying airballs way down, but you will still get some that rocket off the ramp and over the back side to the area by Gozer. I'd say you get about 10% the amount of airballs that you do with the stock brackets and no protector. And that's a fine solution that frees me from an ugly protector over the top (that comes with its own downsides). Highly recommended.

#5308 12 months ago

I might be the only one I know of who doesn't have airball issues. Mine is a launch party ear machine, so I wonder if they tweaked something shortly after that introduced airballs. The good news is there are several options that exist to combat the issue.

#5309 12 months ago

Brackets it is.......thanks for the input. Am I wrong to assume the 90% reduction in airbags curse the equivolent amount of outland jumps? Additionally, how do those brackets hold up over time?

I'm coming in late, but I put the Modfather clear plastic protectors on the ramp and the outlanes and they cut the airballs to zero. I don't even notice them. The colored ones would definitely draw your attention to them.

Quoted from flipper_fever76:

The brackets are printed with metal and very well made. I have not heard of any breaking.

If you put the plastic set over the slings/outlanes, you have zero outlane jumps. Well worth the effort.

The replacement brackets are thicker than the originals and have held up very well on a route where the premium gets a lot of play, so you should be very happy with them.

Why not bump the outlines higher from the underside of the playfield - then you can have no protectors.

Quoted from cpr9999:

That reduces the jumps, but does not eliminate them on a well-waxed playfield. Plastic over the top eliminates them 100%.

Like the air balls on the 2x and 3x shots! Airball protectors eliminates them 100%

LOL

Do I really need to explain to you that a lane hop to OUT/ball OVER is much more critical than the occasional airball with the angled brackets? So yeah, angled brackets for the 2/3x area are the best solution there, and plastic over the lane guides are the best solution for that area.

Do I really need to explain to you that to protect your playfield 100% from being beat up on long 2x/3x shots that plastic airball protectors are better! One might even argue this protectors keep the ball in play 100% of the time vs angles brackets.

If your point is that angles brackets get you 90% of no air balls on 2x/3x and get rid of ugly plastic protectors then the same applies for the outlanes. Raise the outlanes up to get rid of 95% or more lane hops while getting rid of the ugly plastics!

#5318 11 months ago

I’ve sorted all issues except the ball getting jammed up in the ramp subway.

Would much appreciate any tips guys?

There are posts on this. If I remember right, it's just loosening the lower ramp part and adjusting. Also, making sure your machine's playfield is level left to right and at 6.5 degrees top to bottom, at least.

Did you take a pic of that on the game?

#5323 11 months ago

Hi guys,

Today I noticed that about half of the LED light boards are out on my Ghostbusters premium. I've checked connections underneath the playfield and everything seems good. Is it possible that a node board went out? I also reinstalled the latest update and that didn't correct the issue. It seems that all of the upper playfield LED's are out. All flashers work expect for the containment facility which and the flasher between the pops.

Any suggestions?

#5324 11 months ago

I pressed on a few connections under the game and all of a sudden everything was back. I started playing again and the same group of lights all went off again. Weird. I'm going to open a tech thread for the issue just in case any owners with other Spike games have seen this issue.

Update: It was a bad solder joint, fixed!

#5328 11 months ago

Is there anywhere that I can download the sound effects from this game?

I want to make the skill shot successful sound a text tone on my phone for someone specific.

#5329 11 months ago

Hi All,

New GB Premium owner - right out of the box the subway lock coil is firing repeatedly in a pattern. It seems that the machine believes there is a ball to clear and it fires over and over again. This is the same issue shown here in this video from awhile back:

Has anyone seen this and if so can you guys point me in the right direction to debug? Many thanks!

The switch is stuck in the down position most likely. Have a look from undernearth.

#5331 11 months ago

Thanks, will do!

#5332 11 months ago

Im picking up a GB pro tomorrow. The guy says the slimer cable is broke. Where can i get a replacement and how much does it cost?

#5333 11 months ago

Joining the club in a couple weeks. Pro on the way. Already ordered glow in the dark titan rubbers, airball protector, and a bunch of other stuff to put on when it arrives. Will post pics after set up. Can't wait

#5334 11 months ago

Wanting to buy an LE if anyone is looking to sell. Little worried about the Playfield issues. What do I need to look for or can someone point me in the right direction to read about them? Thanks in advance.

Look for the misspelled "reinforcment" on the playfield. But honestly if an LE has made it this far without chipping, crazing, or ghosting, it's probably okay.

I believe that was only the Pro? I think they made multiple runs of that version, too.

I haven’t seen that anywhere here on this thread, you might have to go directly to stern for that one .

Congrats on the pick up tomorrow!

#5338 11 months ago
Quoted from Allibaster:

It's worth looking for, especially if it's an early run LE as there may have been some overlap.

I'd investigate what 'broken' actually means. the metal cable broke? that seems unlikely. is the wire harness cut? you could probably fix that... It's possible the mech is just not registering properly, because its not a well designed feature. Slimer can be a little tricky to get working correctly. Its also pretty pricy to replace.

So I guess the huge code update we have all been waiting for won't be what we think it will be. Or at least no new animations.... Great to have this display though.

ColorDMD does not dictate what Stern does. if a color display is being shown this week, and then Stern drops new scenes in an update, those would have to be done and a Color update posted.

I've been looking forward to Color for GB for a long time, but it would also be nice if this code update hadn't been teased for a freaking year already. If both happen in the span of a few weeks, I'd be one happy camper.

#5343 11 months ago

Would be nice to see the code update on or before Halloween

#5344 11 months ago

I have a GB pro. Love this game. It's a keeper. Ive done a few mods to the game and never had any issues. But, I feel like I want to sell/trade it and get the Premium. I figure its about a $2k upgrade. I haven't played the Premium much, but I like the subway and the hologram. Is that all Im really missing? Has anyone ever said "I wish I had the pro and not the premium"? Im just trying to see what opinions are and determine if I should spend the $2k and the hassle. Thanks

People complain about magna slings, but I think they are a cool and unique feature.

GB Premium destroys the Pro. Subway ramp is way better, magna slings are cool, Slimer does more than just bounce up and down in the same place, Ecto goggles are neat, Library and storage unit are not just a crappy flat plastic. It's a much better experience.

That said, I'd recommend the mezel mods cover for the Firehouse HQ. It looks a WHOLE lot better:

Yeah, me, too. The flipper bat covers are a waste, and the slime is okay, but I could do without it. The Firehouse is the star, and they know it, which is why it's bundled.

I put the firehouse kit on mine. I also changed out the library to the premium library bought from Marco. I also installed a spraky tv in the same area there the hologram would go. I put the walking stay puff in too. Shaker motor installed, and Stern topper. Also, tilt graphics side blades. As for the storage unit, I made the Walter Peck (action figure background) mod. Looks awesome.

If they sold just the firehouse I would buy it. Zero interest in the others.
