Quoted from Midway-Man:

First thing I would check is it running latest code 1.13? There was a software related issue in earlier code versions regarding weak flippers. This could be your problem.

Thx. It’s running 1.11 I’ll investigate more this weekend

Good news, they have fixed it after 1.11 so your problem will be solved.
You can download the newest software here https://f002.backblazeb2.com/file/gamecode/ghostbusters-1_13.spk

V1.12 - December 9, 2016
===================================

Fixes:
- pinnode v0.19.8 - Fixed "weak flipper" issue. This bug manifested itself as a
weak flipper
if the flipper EOS switch is working only intermittently during gameplay.

#6203 1 year ago
Quoted from billsfanmd:

Thx. Just looked. One of the kits has all glow rings. would love to see pics...

I did all glow rings from Titan which I shopped my GB. They are perfect IMHO. Looks like the game should have shipped that way, which is the way I like any mods on my games.

So should follow rubber sizes on titan site or manual?

What did you use for post sleeves?

Quoted from yzfguy:

I do somewhere, I'll look for them or I could take a few more. I used the Titan kit and I ended up with extras, but I don't remember being short any rubbers. They are black light reactive too which can make them really stand out if you have any black light LEDs or black lights in your game room.

but if you have no black lights they just look light green?

#6209 1 year ago

I used the purple from Pinball life and they look great, it's a lighter purple and it matches the artwork really well. I went off of the manual and everything was correct.

#6211 1 year ago

Yes

#6212 1 year ago
Quoted from billsfanmd:

They are a very light green normally. Even without black lights they will get charged by ambient and game lights and glow. When I turn off my GB in my dark game room, the rubbers all are still glowing in the darkness which is always cool to see.

#6213 1 year ago

Anyone find a better / more sensitive micro switch for the right ramp? Bending the metal piece that sets it off either makes it to tough to get over and the ball gets stuck or too easy and the ball goes right over without setting the switch off. It was replaced by the original owner 1 time I think as an attempt to fix it. This would be the metal ball return.

#6214 1 year ago
Quoted from swinks:

check out the link for a few things, the 4th item along is the metal angle brackets if you are experiencing airballs, the flipper slipper is still in test - waiting on some samples, but there are a few shooter knobs, plunger plates and even a car bracket for over the shooter lane for the ecto

Added 11 days ago: edit:
sorry forgot to post the links
the target brackets

Hey, swinks, if the flipper slip works, I am wondering if you can make a longer flipper bat decal to cover the longer flipper.

hey bent98, I am holding off on getting a shapeways order as am designing a few things to be made all in one go and do in one order as the aussie dollar is crap at the moment. I have some decals like this already and they could possibly just be centred but I won't make any more for the moment until I know these work the way I want and there is demand for these.

Anyone add undercab lighting or led strip below flippers? Never done this on a spike pin.

#6217 1 year ago
Quoted from billsfanmd:

I haven't done those, but I did add a Cobb light strip under the upper train tracks to illuminate the pop bumper area. I was a little nervous about any extra load, but it's been going for about a year and all is good. I just used one of those bulb replacer bases that has an adapter and replaced one of those bulbs along the backboard, so no splicing/hardwiring advice.

Great. My friend really wants under cab too but worried about messing up a spike board

Link to Cobb light strip ? Comet ? Color ? Thx!

I had it kicking around in my bulb box for a few years, so I cut the wires on one of comets adapter bases and soldered it on. I can’t seem to find it on their site, but I’m pretty sure I got it from comet before they changed hands. Looks like it might be just as bright if you got one of their led strips that already comes with that adapter base. It really brightened up the pops and ya can’t see it at all under the ramp.

#6221 1 year ago

use Comet's Matrix system

and patch in to a #44/#47 globe and then hook up various items

GB pro is my 2nd best earner ever after Deadpool pro.
Anyone else operating GB too?

I use comet matrix a lot. What color looked good for you in pop bumper area. On most pins I alligator clip matrix. So on spike I’ll use the 44 bulb connector

I felt there is already enough color and just went with white to brighten up the area.

Hey all,

So still new to my LE and lovin' it. What is frustrating to me is seeing the ball come out of the pops, under the gate, bounce off of the RT orbit rail just enough that the ball come SDTM. WTF!?

I need to order a hanging center post plastic but what else should I be looking at to help?

A center post probably won't help that. Center posts only save a ball that is coming directly from the middle. If it's coming off the right rail at an angle that just misses the flipper, it will probably hit the side of the post and slide into the trough.

Leveling and pitch is a better fix.

#6231 1 year ago

Yeah, something is off level because that feed should go straight to the right flipper.

#6232 1 year ago

Thinking about framing up Vigo in a doll house frame to add to the game. I know there are only one or two callouts from Ghostbusters II, plus the river of slime, but it still seems like something pretty iconic from the series that deserves a place in the game.

Always thought it would be cool to replace that image of the cat in the ecto goggles with a Vigo image.

Anyone want to give this a try in pinball browser?

Bang on! It was the front of the pin, I leveled it and now I only have an occasional drain, everything else goes to the RT flipper. Although there wasn't much of an adjustment the ball definitely shoots harder now as well. That part is odd but play is much better now, thanks!

Some guy on FB posted a GB earning over 18k on location.

Basically he made a comment saying... "Stern, please release code for a game that actually earns on location."

That's some serious quarter drops.

IMG_2717 (resized).PNG
#6238 1 year ago

Looks like $18k is just since 1.13. Lifetime earnings is $25k. That's pretty awesome. Mine should finish paying for itself early next year. Where do you guys find this massive player base?

#6239 1 year ago

Im shopping one for a friend and I love it...May get one...

Id love the plastic piece for the center drain though....

Updated code and my right flipper seems to work perfect so far

Since all the adjustments and audits get lost after each update. The game actually earned 18k since the last update. Lifetime stats are not functioning correct. My HUO GB claims to have earned a few Euros. Funny thing is, the game does not even have a coin mech.

yes I've done both, doesn't seem to be a problem if you buy one that is made for it. I got mine from Mezel mods and the under cab lighting is amazing. so bright!

#6243 1 year ago

I bought a 1 year old GOTG with $14k on it when I bought it. I think it was in Sunshine.

There is GB for sale in VA with a slimer prob. Seller says it hits pf. Is this an easy adjustment?

The most recent time I moved, after I setup GB the moving guy asked me if he could play and reached into his pockets for quarters. I had to explain Free Play briefly but it would be pretty hilarious if you invited a bunch of people over for some pinball and had all of the machines set to $1.00 per game and pretended it was for real
