Quoted from orlandu81:

Hello GB owners!
I just changed out my black rubber kit to a mix of GITD and clear ones from Titan and am very happy with not just the look, but the feel too. As someone who did not like the feel of these on my IJ, I am actually quite surprised that my shots have been better on GB since changing.
Anyone else feel this way? You liked the feel of them on one machine and not another? They look awesome either way but I had to switch my IJ back to a standard rubber kit because it didn’t feel right.
Anyways, here are some pics. I went with a user submitted kit and I’m very happy. Clear was used on the bright areas, GITD everywhere else.

Glow in the dark looks fantastic, does it glow at all during game play?

Did you have actual Titan's on the IJ? The Superbands look similar to the Titan, but feel totally different. By different, I mean awful. I thought the Titan's were pretty close to the real rubber feel on every game I've tried so far.

Quoted from Shredso:

Glow in the dark is amazing. I did a full glow in the dark Titan replacement on mine and if there ever was a mod that looked like it should have been there from the factory, that was it. Even when not glowing the green of the rubber matches the light green on the playfield perfectly. You can use some black light LEDs and get some glow during the game play if you want. Other times when the game is dark like when a mode is lit on the left ramp and that shot is just strobing, you can see them glow too. If you have black lights in your room, you can really get the full effect. It's always cool turning the game off and having the rubber still glowing on a pitch black game that's off too.

Coincidentally enough I just sold my GB Pro a couple of hours ago. I wasn't looking to sell, but was made an offer I couldn't refuse, so it had to move on.

Yes, everything lesmanley said is spot on.

For Indy I bought Titans in black and used them on the flippers and around the playfield for about a week or two and didn’t like the feel for the wide body and the shots on that machine. I’m happy I went back to them for the GB because it looks and feels like a nice little upgrade.

#8804 32 days ago
Quoted from embryon:

Why did you change the gi globes Btw?

These are UV LEDS. I figured that I would install them when I put all Glow In The Dark Titan rubbers in. It is a neat effect but I was only able to put them in a few places on GB as there are mostly SMD LED everywhere.

I have also installed full GITD Titans on about 4 of my pins so far (GB LE, ACNC, AFM, EHOH LE) and love the look. They do not often 'glow' during play but I guess it depends on how dark your room is. Although they are actual GITD, it is the neat green colour that looks gret all of the time.

Just joined the club!
My wife and I brought home a premium today. We were super excited about it until I went into the menu and found an alert about the right flipper EOS. If anyone can shed some light on this for me I’d really appreciate it!

Shopping out my game and I noticed my Gozer plastic didn’t have a head. Anyone have an extra to sell or know where you can buy single pieces?

I am no longer in the club, but finally got around to finishing the instruction cards I made for my premium. I am looking for someone who wants a free set of these in exchange for some pictures installed on their machine. If you have interest, please let me know.

He did, it's a pdf. If you download it you get the ful rez version which you can see all the details all the way down to the janky low res dots Stern used on the plastic printing.

#8835 24 days ago

I have a Ghostbusters pro that had me stumped. I noticed tonight that the flasher over the librarian scoop was constantly lit, and none of the inserts on the lower playfield were on. I tested the node board bus. Good. Tested the node boards. Good. Reseated everything on node board 9 as well as reseated all the cat cables. I tested the inserts and none if them lit until the 80’s. Also only the slimer flasher and Stay puft lit on their tests. I unhooked the molex for the flasher over the librarian. Also the “fix” for that flasher is on the machine from the factory. The node boards are on and working based on the flashing orange lights. Can anyone steer me where to go from here? I had a node board issue on this game a couple years ago but all the lights in the lower third were out then. After Stern sent me 2 faulty ones I replaced node 9 with a new one.

Wanted to give my GB Pro a good cleaning, wax, install a couple mods I had and rebuild the flippers. All past due. All was going great and I was close to enjoying some Halloween fun until I got to the flipper rebuild. Have you ever seen a crank this worn? Needless to say, GB is out of commission until my Marco order comes in.

How many plays to warrant a flipper rebuild on a Stern? I thought kits came with new cranks etc

#8840 24 days ago

Hey guys hoping someone can assist me. I purchased an 8 way splitter pcb but it didn't come with the input cable. I was wondering if someone could take a clear photo or give me the putouts for the cable so I can make one. I don't want to criss cross the wires in error. I have black and red wiring and a 3 pin molex plug (arrow shape thing) and a 3 pin idc plug. My intent is to put the black wire on the pointed/arrow head pin but don't know which pin does it go on the idc end.
Thanks

This was a location game. No idea how many plays since it last had a flipper rebuild. I find the majority of the time a new plastic link and coil sleeve and I'm good to go. I don't replace the crank unless it's an incorrect part, high end restoration or in this rare case, totally garbage.

Thanks. Was wondering because I haven't done a rebuild on sterns and don't think they need one to be honest. Most games on a machine might be 2k plays

#8843 24 days ago

From the look of the damage this wasn't just normal wear. I've seen where if the linkage to the flipper rod is tightened too low or high on the flipper shaft it will still work but be in a bind.

Guys I need your help.
I am currently in the progress of writing another bug report. Which I want to send to Stern. I have now about 40+ bugs/tweaks. Some major some minor.
I need your help with one of them. It took me a while to find out what is causing it. It would be very nice if some Pro owners could verify, they have the same behavior with their game. Just to be sure it is not some sort of weird hardware issue on my game.

36. (PRO only?)The game refuses to kick the ball out of the right scoop. The game knows the ball is sitting there. If entering switch test, the switch is marked active. Also the game starts ball seach but doesn’t activate this particular coil. If entering coil test this coil however works.
-This happens under following circumstances. When playing The Ballroom stacked with Storage Facility Multiball. If the very last shot of The Ballroom is flashing at the left ramp and all balls drain, so just one ball is left in the game. If then the last ball gets shot into the right scoop (shortly after the ball drained) or in grace period of Storage Facility Multiball ending. The game refuses to kick it back out of the right scoop until the The Ballroom times out. Sometimes Storage Facility Multiball doesn’t even end. Until ball search adds a new ball.

It would be very nice if some Pinsiders could test it on their Pro. Maybe even some Premium LE owner can test it, to see if this software is also affected.
Also keep in mind, The Ballroom is a 4 stage mode. I am speaking of the mode final shot(left ramp) in stage 4.

Picture is to get some attention :Dx
