Had anyone ever taken the slimer figure off of the metal line? I'm just curious how it's connected and if it's hard to remove.

Quoted from TheCnyPinGuy:

WE GOT ONE !!!
Drove 6 hours but 1000% worth it
HUO - Color LCD dmd / shaker / mirror blades
She is as new it they get without me cracking the box open
Can’t wait to get some time on this one
Played one on location but OP wouldn’t sell it so soon for a location earner
[quoted image]

I don't understand why someone would deck their machine out with add ons like shaker motor, color dmd, mirror blades... but only get the pro model?

Quoted from UrethraFranklin:

All the parts are there it's just apart for cleaning. The cleaning pics are gross.

Craig said there aren't any problems other than damage near the kickout hole and shooter lane. Not much to complain about other than standard dimpling.
Normally I wouldn't have been able to afford one of these and if I had $6500 I would have rather had a fun car or something. If it turns out I don't like this one too much I knew I could possibly trade for ACDC, but I am hoping I love this game.
I have played it several times, but I never liked the gap near the flippers.

Curious to know what a 20k plays routed game cost you?

Quoted from UrethraFranklin:

So the game has been cleaned, all new titans, Craig from Fun cleaned up the inserts and everything. If all goes well I'll have her here tomorrow night.
[quoted image][quoted image][quoted image]

Is there any way to even out the playfield dimpling? I'm guessing it doesn't look so bad from the player's pov but still...

#6082 1 year ago
Quoted from UrethraFranklin:

It's only a year or so old, albeit routed, but its still better than "players condition" although nowhere near HUO and most HUO still have the dimpling.

I know they all have dimples. My HUO gb is quickly accumulating dimples. I'm just wondering if it really does even out after a while or if it just gets worse.

#6086 1 year ago
Quoted from UrethraFranklin:

So got a few games in and it's HARD! The dimpling is there, it was a routed game but from the players angle you don't really see it too bad. Unfortunately for my Guardians not too many toys were made that match what's inside. Either Disney Infinity cartoony or expensive polystone statues.
Fortunately for Ghostbusters, they've been making toys and collectibles for so long especially the Mattel line. So I thought the librarian would look good by the Library. We did a mini tournament and Craig destroyed us all.[quoted image][quoted image][quoted image]

I bought that same librarian toy to put there. I just haven't gotten around to installing it yet.

Quoted from shaub:

wouldnt the change from 1.13 to 1.14 indicate that its more of a bug fix update rather than major revisions or additions to the rules?

Yeah... this isn't too promising though I'd love to be wrong.

Canadian Arcade deleted all comments and disabled comments, so I think we can take it as a hoax now.

#6280 1 year ago
Quoted from cpr9999:

Agree - hoax!
See comments on flipper gap !![quoted image]

This was just a joke I made after the fact, unrelated to the other posts.

#6281 1 year ago
Quoted from PanzerFreak:

"What a dream of an update" Hmmm, that makes it sound like it's gotta be a pretty substantial update!

or someone at Stern asked them to delete the post / comments. Please let this be real! lol

Now the comments are back but they've deleted comments saying it's not real while not saying anything else. It's a hoax.

#6283 1 year ago
Quoted from PanzerFreak:

That sounds like it is real! Lol

If it was real they wouldn't be ignoring everyone asking if it is real and where to get it.

#6343 1 year ago

You guys notice how gb prices have been dropping? I can't help but feel like people are giving up on this game because they're losing hope in a decent code update.

#6347 1 year ago
Quoted from billsfanmd:

Im still surprised with all the great minds out there on pinside that can basically create almost anything for these games including new songs, etc that someone can make some basic code changes to finish up a pin.

If they released the source code there's no doubt people would do all kinds of great things with it, but making edits to assets is very different from programming.

#6364 1 year ago
Quoted from enjoyvelvet:

It’s from two days ago. He seems really excited about it but isn’t allowed to say much. Bring on the epic update Stern! Cmon!

What else would be say? It's a game he worked on and Stern has been saying for 2 and a half years that they're going to update the code. I actually find it kind of infuriating that he implies that he knows more but isn't allowed to say. Like after two and a half years, what are they supposedly hiding about a code update that they can't reveal? It would make everyone feel better if they gave an estimated delivery date and some details on what to expect, but instead they say the same thing they've been saying for years and act like it has to be some big secret. I think the real secret is that they're just waiting out the clock.

Quoted from PeterG:

They will report this for coming 30 months

Yeah. They really didn't say anything about the scope of the update, what the resources are, if gb is a side project or their primary focus... I feel like they would have said it was coming soon if it was coming soon. I think there's still quite a wait ahead.

Quoted from embryon:

Thanks very much for the link. Good news indeed. Now does this change my impressions of Dwight. A little. Tell me why could he not say he will be working on an update? Last I heard on a video (I think) was gb was pretty much done, final wiza d mode was never on the agenda etc etc. Now such words do not instill confidence in a person. What was so hard to say an update will happen, I'm busy, got will be first from the beginning? My sincere answer to this is because it wasn't scheduled, and possibly the pressure from forums like this has brought about such a back flip. Who knows?it could have been handled better.

I think this is a change in direction for the better, but it is funny how everyone seems to have forgotten everything that's been said over the last 30 months. I hope the update is great and I give them credit for finally addressing it, but I still feel like this whole thing has been handled terribly.

Has anyone purchased a replacement plastics set that might have some spares to part out?

#6664 1 year ago
Quoted from dnaman:

Can someone share a picture of the center captive ball and gate(s) area where there is a black nylon spacer? Just putting everything back together and this fell out when disassembling this area.
Thanks!

Do you still need this? I couldn't see a black spacer when I looked...

#6681 1 year ago
Quoted from Rager170:

Here you go. Not sure if he is still selling them but i would reach out. I have yet to install this. Maybe this weekend.
https://pinside.com/pinball/forum/topic/sale-ghostbusters-airball-air-ball-right-orbit-protectors-2

I bought one of these but took it off because the ball kept getting stuck on top of it and you couldn't get it off without tilting or removing the glass.

#6723 1 year ago
Quoted from nitrojcrawf:

On the pro’s This does not apply as they are still a mechanical sling. On the LE/Prem with the manga sling you can flip the prefer of the sling rings to make magnets more sensitive. I’m sorry, the pic I showed from last night is the wrong one.. on pro you have to adjust the leaf switches. The picture below is of the mag a slings.
[quoted image]

So is this after they've been switched? The small rings go above the large ring?

Quoted from hawkmoon77:

I'd be pretty happy if they fixed the lights on the storage facility. Anyone notice the lights are reversed?
One ball in storage SHOULD light the green light. Second ball would light the red, 3rd ball triggers the all the red lights and sirens.
Instead, first ball lights the red, 2nd ball lights the green, 3rd ball lights all the red lights and sirens.
Am I missing something? This seems the opposite of what I'd expect.

I think the animations are backwards too. 1 locked ball shows 2 traps and 2 locked balls shows 1 trap.

#6877 1 year ago
Quoted from oradke:

Hi all! Question: I've bought my GBPro from a friend, and it already hat LEDs in it. Do they come factory shipped with LEDs? If yes, is there something like LEDOCD built in to smooth the flicker? Or is GB designed for LEDs?
I'm just wondering because yesterday I put LEDOCD into my LAH, and it makes a HUGE difference! The GB though does give me headaches because of the aggressive lighting.
Oliver

All gb lighting is led. You shouldn't be seeing flickering. Maybe something is broken.

#6889 1 year ago

Lock 1st ball, see two traps. Lock 2nd ball, see one trap...

What happens when there's a code update? Does the lcd get an update?

Ok what exactly did he do?

One of the biggest things for me in the new code is being able to lower the auto launch power. Now I can use the right orbit airball protector without worrying about the ball getting stuck on top of it, and right orbit shots always register now.

Are they going to run this game again?

#8275 6 months ago
Quoted from Rum-Z:

Right. I didn't originally buy it because I was unhappy with the state of code. Then they finished it when it was out of production, and now I'm happy with the state of code. I'd be super interested if it got vaulted. Under normal circumstances I'd say I'm a buyer, but I'm laid off for now due to the pandemic.

I haven't been laid off though I'm less confident in my job security for sure. With stimulus money and some other factors lining up, I could see myself buying this game again NIB but only if they did it soon. I'll forget about how much I liked the game if they wait too long.
