Quoted from finnflash:

I have never had the center post, and my 12 year old does just fine with GB. He just beat my GC score! All factory settings.[quoted image]

Wow your 12 year old son did that? That makes me feel like a real Chump!

Yeah, he makes me feel that way too.

So other than the benefit of the center post any other benefits of that kit?

It helps prevent ball hops from the inlanes and it looks pretty cool with the green slime installed.

#5607 12 months ago

I’m thinking of leaving the club. I have a LE no issues with lots of mods including factory topper. If interested pm me

#5608 12 months ago

Shoot, I'm lucky to get 2 billion with the center post in.

I had a 2.4b one sometime during MB with 6x going. Only realized it after the game.

Question about the red light in the back of the middle newton ball. Are people changing anything about it? Mine seems to be kinda in your face. I think a quick fix would be to put a bulb condom on it, but was wondering if mine is bent or misaligned or something as I don't recall it being like that on location...?

#5613 12 months ago

not misaligned, that one is in your face. I swapped it with a less brighter version.

I have never noticed that. Hafta check it out and see what you guys are talking about

I'm sure it depends on your height. I'm short and that light doesn't bother me.

#5616 11 months ago

When GB started you had a 3d printed part that ensured the wireform was not bend. Later that was solved by Stern. The 3d printed part will block also the red light. I do not know if these are still available.

Interesting. I didn't realize there was a difference like this.

I think I'm going to put a bulb condom on it to tame it down a little and go from there.

I got the emails from Stern and with a heavy sigh'... I was left disappointed again! they keep saying delayed, its getting old at least give us a future target, going on over 6 months now they promised it update summer 2018.

yep that is the part.

Hey guys got my TrueColor protectors back up and online for sale - https://www.truecolorprotectors.com/products/ghosbusters-pinball-truecolor-plastic-protectors

These protectors are unique because we use a cool fluorescent plastic with the center cut out so your plastics don't get color bombed, but have a cool glowing edge!

#5625 11 months ago

I posted this in the issues thread but thought I'd throw it in here. Having an issue with the left Scoleri brother not staying up, it tries to pop up in the modes they are supposed too but immediately drops back down. As much as I enjoy it not being in my way during multiball I would like to get it addressed. I checked the key posts on both this and the issues thread and didn't see anything related to my issue, I think I remember people having issues with the plastic shelf that is suppose to catch the target when it pops up. I believe there is a more robust solution/part to this but can't seem to locate it.

#5626 11 months ago

I was shopping out my GB and I didn't take enough pictures. Can anyone help point me to where these little "bracket" things go. I have locations for three of them, but I have two that I don't remember where they go.

The ones I know about are the two "brackets" under the hex post under the left ramp. And one that attached the subway exit to a hex post:

Thanks!

#5627 11 months ago

They prevent balls from getting stuck on plastics, between plastics, etc...

#5628 11 months ago

So is Stern done making these new??? I was kind of hoping to be able to buy a NIB once I paid off my Monster Bash LE... If that's the case that's a real bummer. I know they announced Met being a last run, so I thought they would announce a last run on GB... If that's the case, I might just try to buy a HUO GB LE. When I have the money of course. Maybe I'll get lucky and someone will have the Color DMD in it as well.

#5629 11 months ago

Three years is coming up soon for GB so I'd imagine not long to go.

#5630 11 months ago

3 years already...still waiting on the final code.....

#5631 11 months ago
Quoted from PeterG:

3 years already...still waiting on the final code.....

Yeah, what a bummer. I wanted one of these but never pulled the trigger because I wanted to wait and see what the final code would be in order to ensure I was happy with it, as I'm not completely digging it in the state it is now. Waiting seemed wise. If I can't buy one NIB because of the wait, well.. I guess that was for the best. I might pick up one used down the road or just be on to something else.

#5632 11 months ago

The promise of an update that is over 14 months old now probably didn't help make any sales in the community either. Pretty sad state for the second half of its production run.

Most likely your drop target rest ledge is cracked/broken or missing.

You can get the part at Marco or Pinball Life. Marco is sold out. This is the link for Pinball Life:
https://www.pinballlife.com/stern-1-bank-target-rest-ledge.html

Pick up a few and store them in your coin box.

It's easier to remove the entire drop target assembly to replace the ledge. The ledge is held in by two screws.

Replace it with the standard part or fashion one yourself from a stronger material.

Bumping this to see if anyone knows where the other two brackets go (on a premium).

Thanks!

I had no luck finding others, but my subway exit doesn't have one of those brackets.

I don't know if these are the same brackets you are referring to, but there is one on each corner of the slingshot plastics near the outlanes ...

Can someone tell me what all you have to remove in order to replace the 2" hex spacer with the 1 5/8 spacer? I don't want to take anything off the playfield I don't have to. Always makes me nervous doing this lol

#5639 11 months ago

Can someone tell me what all you have to remove in order to replace the 2" hex spacer with the 1 5/8 spacer (in order to fix the PKE ramp and make it easier to shoot)? I don't want to take anything off the playfield I don't have to. Always makes me nervous doing this...

Just the metal wire ramp. Take the post out and replace. I just did it a couple days ago. I just payed a towel down so I could lay the ramp on it so I did t have to take the switch off.

#5641 11 months ago

that did it, and wow, hitting the shot a few times in a row, AMAZING lol

#5642 11 months ago

I was playing around with some custom cards for GB. These themed after the yellow-black of the ghost trap and are a contrast to the purples on the apron.

As always, click for full res.

Cheers!

Thanks for sharing these, they look GREAT. They will contrast nicely with my Candy red LE apron with angery Slimmer.

Something simple and something that probably doesn’t bother anyone else but I hate the little L brackets that keep the ball from getting stuck. Looks like someone just ran to Lowe’s.
I designed and printed a new bracket to replace it. Only color that I had that goes with the game was green. I will probably pick up some purple as I think it will fit better but I’m happy with the prototype.

QUESTION...….We haven't played GB in forever. Was playing it today and when 2 different people got to mass hysteria multi-ball, the scoleri bros. drop targets kept going up and down repeatedly. Is this normal? Was it implemented in the last code update? I turned the machine off when it happened because it sounded so abnormal like something HAD to be wrong and didn't want to damage anything. Thanks for the help!

No that isnt normal that i am aware of. I disabled my Scolari targets awhile back and couldn't be happier. I hate those stupid things.

It does that during Storage Facility multiball, so it may be normal during mass hysteria too. Hopefully the next update changes that.
