Mountain gamer . When do you order yours?
whats the bulb partnumber for the coin slots? I'd like to chance them to pink or blue.
I am still waiting on mine GB premium. I ordered it back in November. I keep hearing its coming soon but every week I ask, its delayed again. Now the latest is end of March. Anyone else hearing this?
Quoted from pinden007:
I got mine from coin taker this week. They delivered and setup for free. Installers were awesome and so was the price.
We played for 5 hours last night and my buddy stumbled onto midnight madness.
No center post yet and we managed 2.5b. Definitely a blast to play!
If I need to tweak the right drop target to be flush with pf, is there 1 or 2 screws to turn and which way do I turn them?
Premium or Pro. When did you order? Did it ship directly from stern or Coin takers?
Quoted from pinden007:
I got the pro. I am local so I called on Monday and they delivered it on Tuesday! They had 4 in stock. It's free shipping and I believe it would ship directly from cointaker.
My PF date is nov 16.
My issue is that the distributor doesn't keep them in stock and has to order from Stern. Plus its a premium.
I just got my GB Premium and I am in the process of installing all the mods i purchased for it. Has anyone out there installed the LERmods
I have an idea where to mount (Right ramp) but I am not sure where to snake the wires. Also, I am kinda bummed it used alligator clips instead of a connector. If that clip falls off or shorts across will it damage the machine? Lastly, can someone take better pics from their premium to show how they installed? PF, and under PF, and how they routed the wires would be helpful.
I also had a second question. I wanted to set the game up for a 7 degree incline. Stern says if the bubble is centered in the level on the game its 6.5 degree. Someone at Stern told me 7 degree's the bulb should be directly underneath the top line. I took a digital angle finder and placed it on the upper playfield and it reads 7 degrees and then placed it on the lower playfield and its 6.5 degrees. The bubble is also halfway over the top line.
Why is the angle different from top vs bottom of playfield?
Thanks in advance.
I just got my machine a couple of days ago and have been busy installing all the mods I purchased ahead of time. The game is cool as it is but once you start upgrading sound, leds, topper, etc.. it really transforms the game. Ive onkly played 5-6 games so far but I think the slimers behaves the same way.
its easy to install all. I had to cut the rings on my flipper fidelity speaker to accommodate the RGB lighting so I had enough backbox clearance. Cutting the speaker ring was a PITA as I didn't want to damage the speaker cone.I also went with the 10" woofer and I am glad I did.
The hardest thing to install was the art blades. I spray the back of them with soap and water and slipped them in the narrow crevice between the PF and side wall. Thank God I wet them otherwise it would have been a nightmare to re position.
If you are referring to this kit https://mezelmods.com/collections/ghostbusters-pinball-mods/products/ghostbusters-pinball-backbox-illumination
I used this 8-Way Power Splitter Board For Stern Pinball Machines Using The SPIKE System
I order the parts to install tournament button. I've been getting conflicting info on if you need a diode or not. Has anyone successfuly put one in on a ghostbusters?
Here are the Pinball Life part #'s
500-6587-06-TL Stern Tournament Button and Switch Assembly - Cabinet Mounting
1N4004 Diode 1N4004
I also will be adding a lock down bar as those latches are silly.
500-6881-00 Stern Front Molding Lockdown Bar Receiver Assembly
500-6882-02-00 Stern/Sega/Data East Black Front Molding Lockdown Bar - No Tournament Button Hole
I had this right out of the box. I did add a shaker motor but it hasnt gotten any worse. Will that reinforcement pull the wood back together?
If anyone is interested I have a set up brand new Stern Ghostbusters 3d logo flipper bat. $20 shipped. PM me if you want em.
Quoted from Gunnder:
Just a quick tip for those of you looking to upgrade your shooter rod on a GBLE. I didn't like the specific rod that modfather made for GBLE (colors and pattern seem a bit boring/off), so I tried a Creature from the Black Lagoon modfather shooter rod and it matches up perfectly! Check it out.
Btw I wish we could merge both the GB threads together, I never know which one to post it (both are just as active), so sometimes I post the same thing in both.
That looks like the Hulk's testicle.
I have a GB, MET and TWD premiums. Twd and met are so much more fun than GB. All three games needed tweaking but the twd and met shots feel smoother. I won't sell my GB as it's still fun to play but it will never get as much playing time as the other two.
Make sure you install a center post, larger star posts and rubbers for the outlanes, as well as the Out-lanes protectors from yoyo. The game becomes more enjoyable when you do this. Also standup target wedges and air protectors are a must. It's a shame they released this game with so many flaws.
I made a bracket that I attached to her back as tape on the bottom of her feet wasn’t enough for me.
It's nice to have the adjustment on the top but I don't like the way the look of the screw being exposed. Do you have a version without the top adjustment?
Just set mine up. Is there any adjustment to make the image bigger? The image doesn't fill up the entire dmd opening.
I wanted to install a die cast subway train on top of the subway ball guide on my GB premium. I was wondering what would be the best place to hook up a 12V LED to interact with the game. I was looking at the owners manual and wasnt sure what connection would make the most sense?
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
and then all mods, parts, tools etc
Hey, swinks, if the flipper slip works, I am wondering if you can make a longer flipper bat decal to cover the longer flipper.
