I looked at my Ecto Goggles. But there is a plastic right in front of the display - i think it is numbered 75 - that should be sufficient to hold those airballs or is not?

#1714 2 years ago

You can just add an extra layer to that with lexan? I thinks for looks a better solution.

For the PCB LEDs, I'm going to try these colored filters. $3.17 shipped.

I just put some green transparant foil under that plastic. Looks great. Other option is to paint the bulb with some green glass paint.

I recently bought a ghostbusters pro. I added mods and wanted to share some pictures.

I hope you are happy with it. For me this is way to much....sorry.

Is that easy to install? Can't find anything on that?

#3441 2 years ago

I must say, that is one of the best mods I have seen in years. This really ads something to your game not just leds. Love this......I think they have a winner!

#3444 2 years ago

Question. I am preparing for a playfield swap but when I turn on the machine the flippers do not work nor the plunger and some other coils. Coils like the locked balls do work. What am I missing?

#3471 2 years ago

As the part is 3D printed it should be easily adjusted. Maybe mezelmods could provide the part files so you could 3D print it yourself.

Well that installation is incorrect. If correct it will bounce, at least with mine, very happy with this post on mine.

Quoted from DavidPinballWizz:

Contact your distributor to receive the updated slimer mechanism. It works in a different way with different parts.

Yes the first have an open circuit and register when contact is made. Later, enhanced, ones are closed and register the shot when the contact opens. Much easier to setup. I have the new one, no problems since.

Quoted from jfre81:

I don't own a GB. I played on location for the first time last night. But was wanting to get some feedback from owners.
Never seen a silver ball fly so much on a single-level PF on such ordinary shots. Twice I sent a ball flying back the other way for a horrible airball drain. One time it went to the inlane and hopped over the separator from the outlane, drain. Then another one hit the left ramp post (I think, this happened fast) and flew over the wireform across the center PF, over the inlane and flipper and straight to the drain. At least this one let me shoot again. The flippers were strong, maybe too strong?
I also had the machine reboot while the ball was bouncing around in the jet bumpers, as if I had slamtilted. Now the table feels really light and wound up slide-saving a ball from the left outlane and got a tilt warning a few seconds earlier. Not sure if that had to do with something. I was just trying to nudge a bit when the legs moved with little resistance. But the table was stationary and the ball was in the jets when this happened. This was on a first ball so I lost my game and was actually starting to groove a little after some frustrating early drains.
I really want to like this thing. I can see how with some mods it can be a really good one. That right ramp looks really cool, is a fairly challenging shot, and my highlight of last night was hitting a perfect backhand through it. It also looks a lot better IRL than in pics. But overall my GB experience was underwhelming. At $1 a play I went through $7 in the space of 30 minutes. To be fair, it was my first live flip in at least a year, and I'm rusty. I lost a couple getting my bearings back, but after the first game maybe three or four balls were what I'd call my fault.

To be honest as an owner you have to do some adjustment but then it just plays great. I have airballs only in a few occasions. No hopping drains, no sdtm, only a lot of fun. I agree the linear code is somewhat frustrating but sometimes you have this great game. That is what you do it for. I do not think any operator will go to the level of adjustments a home owner would.

#4294 1 year ago

Most stdm happened direct from the top left exit of slimer target. It toke me a lot of leveling the machine to get it right. And a center post helps a lot

the right one also starts scolari brothers

The JT signed playfields are a bit dubious now.....send them to premium owners...

#4609 1 year ago

Looks like that is already an altered Node Board.

#4649 1 year ago

Hmm, GB Premium and Pro will run for some time. Even when they will stop most op the times they will announce it as they final run.
So there is no point on missing out. But when you look at the second hand market, these will pop up regular. With new titles coming out and most people with only limited room, these will pop up (I expect). And knowing Stern a vault edition or re-run after production has stopped is also likely.

I would not worry to much on missing out. Safe up some money en when a machine for the right price comes by, get it.

Wow that are some freaking airballs. I have never seen that on my machine. Now I do not have the river of slime mod but the ball ending up there...no never. From where are these airballs coming? Not from the standup targets?

I even removed that completely....never had a ball up there. I removed all hooks and things from the playfield, don't like them. That ramp is real orange!

First, disable the scolari brothers and see if the problem is solved.

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

#5616 8 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.

#5623 8 months ago

yep that is the part.

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

Maybe it only lights when you complete the mode?

Also adjust the sidelane wires, just hammer them up a bit form below the playfield, it will prevent lane hopping.

Today 30 months of no code, yeah! Or will they suprise us in the Stern of the Union today?

Quoted from Arcade:

At least that is actual news.
Don’t think I could have taken another “remains on our schedule” post.

They will report this for coming 30 months

#6524 29 days ago

GB was my last new in box....I will not buy a Stern again untill code is finished. Just because I want them to take care. You can not deliver such an expensive machine without the proper code. They need to learn that. They fixed BM66 beacuse that was even more awfull, they fixed now GoT, I did not know if that had any issues. They will need to fix GB.

#6551 23 days ago

I do not know about random modes. Although I can not stand who brought the dog and we got one since I played those so many times, I think the linear approach follows the story the best. I would like to see when the mode times out or you do not make it, you have to start that damn slimmer again. There should be more ways to start a scene (next to skill shot) Also less scolari brothers, I see them way to much.

#6565 23 days ago

If GB is a keeper the stay puft is great. It is subtle but every time I see it, it just makes me smile...

Mine is not on a spring. Only the tiefighter is on a spring

The flipper switch when you hit the scolary brother ball.

#6635 15 days ago

Stern of the union tomorrow. Gb code update? Place your bets....

#6637 15 days ago

That's what my IJ says.....

#6647 14 days ago

GB code update...they got additional resources on it....additional resources.

Hope it is not the toilet lady.
