Sorry if this seems like a stupid question but, has anyone added the Ecto Goggles (hologram) from a premium model to a Pro model? Is it even possible? Would you have to change the whole board system? Just curious. I have a pro model and wish it had the goggles.
thanks

#4122 2 years ago

I posted this in the GB issue thread also. So sorry for the double post if you follow that thread also. I have a Ghostbusters pro and I seem to be have a small problem with the left flipper. It works, but when I hit the ball at the end of the flipper it seems to have a low power. If I hit it in the middle of the flipper, it works as normal. I did replaced the nylon sleeve because it was dirty, in the flipper coil but that didn't effect much. I also replaced the flipper buttons the other day. The gap on the flipper switch seems good. IS There something I'm missing? thanks

#4123 2 years ago

NVM. I found that it was the break leaf switch. I bent them down a little more so it makes a good break. Fixed the problem. Thanks

Quoted from arcadenerd925:

Yes $500 is overpriced. It flashes during ball save, if you get an extra ball, we got one, and It cycles during part of the attract mode. I forget if there is anything else. For me it was the perfect polish for the game and worth the coin spend.

I agree with you. Yes overpriced, but I bought one anyways. Knowing that they make this for the game, I just had to have it. It completes the game.

Quoted from Who-Dey:

The good far outweighs the bad imo.

I've had this game for about 6 months. I bought it from a friend. Its a GB pro. I absolutely love this game. I love how challenging this game is. I just smile every time I see it and play it, good or bad game. This one will never leave my game room.

#4799 2 years ago

I recently added the walking stay puff mod to my GB pro...Love it! one of the best mods, IMO. I think I need to stop with this game. Ive already added Tilt Graphics game blades, Sparkys TV, Stern shaker motor, Stern topper, Mezel Mod drain busters, Stern brick firehouse, Mezel mod library, green slime on my slimer, and a Gozer action figure in the back. I think Im done or until a color DMD comes around, maybe? Sure looks and plays great.

Just replaced my Mezel Mods Library in the Pro today with the actual Premium Library. Really enjoying that upgrade, looks awesome.

#5344 2 years 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

#5349 2 years ago
Quoted from vireland:

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

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.

#5396 2 years ago

I got my LCD from ColorDMD today. Slapped that baby in my GB pro. No problems. However I will note there is a confusing step. When installing the Chroma.rom off of the USB and you push the button on the left and hold for 5 sec the screen goes blank. There is no progress line or status of the install. I found this out because I walked away to take a phone call and when i came back everything was installed as it should be. Putting the LCD on Scan does seem the best option. Overall I'm really please with the way it turned out. Looks great and a huge upgrade for the game. I will also note that I ordered vireland gasket which will take up the space of where the LCD sits.

#5398 2 years ago
Quoted from vireland:

If you look at the status lights on the lower right of the board, "PROG" lights up while it's programming the rom, then "DONE" when it's ready to go.

Ah, guess I didn't pay attention to that. Thanks for the info

#5400 2 years ago

I installed the foam gasket I got from vireland. It looks so pro and good. I highly recommend getting if you change out your DMD.

#5402 2 years ago

Also, I have a GB pro and I scratched the decal on the left side of the backbox. Anyone have or know where I can find just that one side decal? I asked Stern and they told me I have to go through a distributor. 1st distributor told me $196. Anyone know of another outlet?

#5404 2 years ago
Quoted from vireland:

I assume they can order the pro one for you since they're sold individually.

Marco told me to check ebay or pinside.

#5778 1 year ago
Quoted from Glenn70:

1) use adhesive/glue to stick down the protector to the playfield.

or

2) remove the protector and put a little mylar down to help protect the timber around the scoop.

Any suggestions would be very grateful.

I've had this issue on other games with theses protectors. I took mine out and carefully bent it back into shape. Then used some really strong, thin, 2 sided tape to put it down. I found 2 sided carpet tape that works really good. It's thin and strong. I wouldn't use glue.

I have a GB LE with code 1.13.0 I've noticed that when I play and it get to "We came we saw we kicked its.." the insert on the pf doesnt light. When I start the game and when I do a system test it lights no problem. Has anyone seen this issue before. thanks for any help.

#5826 1 year ago

I got to that mode for the first time last night and noticed the same.

Well that makes me feel better that its not just my game. Maybe its a software issue.

#5834 1 year ago

Maybe it only lights when you complete the mode?

I did complete the mode on my game. I tested it manually..meaning I pulled the glass and did it all by hand. Still didnt light

#5974 1 year ago

Ive had both. Currently I have a LE. I feel between the pro and the premium they are 2 different games. Games play may seem similar but so different. I got the pro first because thats all I could afford and over the 2 years I had it I added, shaker motor, walking stay puff, side blades, Sparky TV, a few action figures, custom storage facility, premium library and topper. The game was decked out. I only sold it to upgrade to the LE because a friend was selling his. I removed my color LCD and firehouse mod and put it in my LE. I made someone a sweet deal on my pro and sold it quick. It was their second pin and they were sooo happy to get my game. Anyways, my point being, I was figuring on my Pro being a forever game, thats why I went all out. But...so glad I picked up my Slimer LE.

Quoted from gunstarhero:

Sweet. Where did you get the Library and the Storage Facility that you had on your Pro?

Marco on the Library and the Storage Facility I made. It come in the Walter Peck action figure. Then modded it for the lights and size

#5988 1 year ago
Quoted from Who-Dey:

If you are an average player it wont be that bad but the good thing about it is, GB will make you a better pinball player because if forces you to make good shots. If you brick shots on GB its drain city. I love mine though and i wouldn't sell it for nothing.

right on the money

#6007 1 year ago
Quoted from PinLen83:

Broke the 20B barrier earlier! Laid the stage by setting up multiball to be ready after nailing my multipliers (5x) for stay puft mode. No play field multipliers for this unfortunately. Had I hit the play field multipliers, this game would have been NORTH OF 100Billion! The mode alone netted 14.5B. Along with skill shots, this is where I landed. Friggen epic!!

Nice job! How many balls do you have your game set on? just curious

Walking stay puff! Shaker motor, color LCD.

#6339 1 year ago
Quoted from Utesichiban:

I have the LCD for my IJ and would recommend it over led for the reason it has four different settings. I like the solid one for IJ (can't remember what they call that one). That isn't an option on the led.

This is the reason I'm leaning lcd on GB too. I bought an Iron Man that already had a led dmd last year and don't like it as much on that game the lcd solid setting on my IJ & WH2O.

Hoping LED is a lot better on GB.

I agree with you. I have 3 LCD in my AP, MET and GB. I like that I can make them look like the LED if i choose. I usually put them on Scan which smooths the edges a little. Hires is a little much for me. As for brightness, I wouldnt want them any brighter than they are. I also have a LED in my LAH, only because they dont offer the LCD. It looks great too,but id prefer having the options on the LCD. Thats just my take. To each his own.

#6372 1 year ago
Quoted from PinLen83:

Nope. Strongly disagree. Between the pro and prem/LE are totally different animals. Your left ramp is SS instead of plastic, it's STEEPER than the pro (by a long shot), right ramp is a whore to hit whereas on the pro, it's a lot easier to nail consistently.

I agree with you. Ive owned both. Sold my pro for an LE. I agree, 2 different games. Both great. I prefer the premium and to me, its worth the upgrade. Magna slings are so unpredictable and make it seem as if a Ghost is controlling them.

Quoted from seenev:

Is the colordmd worth it?

YES! so worth it. I went with the LCD and love it

#6920 1 year ago
Quoted from Wildbill327:

The color dmd takes the game to a higher level. The lcd version gives you much more options on the the display IMHO.

This was my thought too. You can make the LCD look like the LED if preferred, but you can't the other way around.

#6935 1 year ago
Quoted from lpeters82:

hanks for letting me be a part of the club for a little while.

Trader!! But isnt this what the hobby is all about? Buying/selling/trading/re-buying. Thats a pretty cool trade. AFM is such a great game. I want one too. Maybe you're ahead of the curve and the code will suck and we will all watch as the prices of GB falls even more. Good luck with the new game!

#6974 1 year ago

c'mon Wednesday hurry up and get here. Could this week move any slower?

#6983 1 year ago
Quoted from Prodoshi:

Sorry, can anyone explain the hype please?

There is lots of reading for you to do about all the little things and big things that need fixing. Those of us that have had this game since it came out, have been waiting for this big fixes to get attention. I personally like the way the game plays. Im curious to see if they finally add the Wizard mode. Stuff like that.

#6991 1 year ago

For me, I love the game as it is. But I'm excited that GB is getting a code update, however big or small. I think I let Pinside opinions get to me too much, and I feel I need to defend the game (maybe because I own one). I see all the hate for this game and the complaining about flipper gap, air balls, ghosting, splitting cabinets, topper etc.. However I also respect everyones opinions and we are entitled to have one. To me it seems that when this game came out there was a lot of love for it. I feel like since John Trudeau got into his trouble, Ghostbusters became the escape goat for all of our discussed feeling and hateful feelings of what he did. So with all the issues of the game, it makes it that much easier to hate on the game. There will always be something wrong with EVERY pinball machine that comes out. Someone, somewhere, is not going to like something about any game out there. Some just more than others. Im the last person to try and tell someone they are wrong in their opinions of what they dislike about the game. Like it or hate it, buy it or sell it, it's up to you to make those decisions. It's your money.
I've owned a pro and now have a LE. I will admit that I get a little bummed out with the big airballs, the flipper gap is challenging, but there are more things I like about the game than don't like. Is it the best game ever? Maybe not, but it's pretty fun and looks great. That's just my opinion. Cant wait to see all the comments about the new code. Or maybe I should just not worry so much about what everyone else thinks.

WOW New code again today!

#7439 1 year ago

WOW! I had no issue at all. I just deleted the 1.16 code off my thumb drive and pasted the 1.17 version onto the drive. I did NOT reformat. Removed the backglass, plugged it into the top USB port and turned the game on. It asked me to hit select to start the update. After that it was done....Also, Im NOT having any issues with my sound. I have an LE However a friend of mine has a Pro and he is having issues with the sound.

#7441 1 year ago
Quoted from tpir:

When you power cycle your game does it actually say 1.07? We all did those same steps and it says it completed but actually didn't when you reboot.

Mine says 1.17.0

IMG_8515 (resized).JPG
#7443 1 year ago
Quoted from embryon:

My update takes a few seconds before it says complete. But I still only have 1.16 le. A friend with a pro said his update took a few seconds too and it worked. I don't get how a 1gb file can only take a few seconds to update and yet all the other code drops taje minutes

It seems like its just an "add on" I only took a few minutes to do the whole thing. I didnt even lose any of my high scores....Still was on Free play

#7446 1 year ago
Quoted from tpir:

Seems like the Pro update is having issues that the LE is not. Will try again in a few days I guess. I know I am not doing anything wrong on my end with the sticks and update process.

Quoted from Phantasize:

Hello everyone.
Happy to say that i joined the club with a Premium today. Really happy with the machine that have had 1 previous owner and looks mint.

I have one issue i wanted to hear if anyone else experienced:

The left scoleri brother target wont stay up when done by tha coil / code. It just goes straight down again. Think it stays up maybe 1 in 20 tries when energising it in test mode. If i just push up the coil plunger with my finger it always stays up.

I recorded a slo-mo video showing it. In the video it seems like the vibrations are so strong that the small flap that pokes the plastic part actually hits it and therefor releases it. But that isn't the case. Even ih i firmly hold the release in place it still happens.

It just seems that it is the whole drop down mech that vibrates and flexes so much that the little "hold tap" on the plastic part slips off the edge...

Anyone else experienced this?
