I'm curious as to where GB will land in the top 100.
BTW - No GB at Flipper's in Grandy,
NC yet. I can't wait to play one.
Premium on order for me.

Great idea! I got these from Marco:

I'm a little confused about the PKE skill shot. I guess you choose P,K, or E and try aim for the lane that is lit. Later on if you
have 2 lanes lit do you aim for the unlit lane?

Also, I can't seem to see my score until the very end.

Quoted from 30FathomDave:

I've got a 1 5/8" hex post. I'll have to try that right ramp trick. Mine isn't impossible to hit by any stretch, but it's definitely the hardest shot in the game - and I get plenty of rejects. So there's an existing hex under the playfield that I just swap out?

Yeah- Remove one top screw then remove hex spacer. Really easy. If you tiny monkey fingers you can replace hex spacer
without removing gerbil cage but it's only 2 more hex nuts to do that.

It was my gripe too, about not being able to see you score and hence progress. With AS the score is posted a lot and makes team play better - at least you know where you are compared with someone else

#2787 2 years ago

My GB is fine. AS is split on left side. Less than 100 plays. Teflon sliders on legs. I've ordered reinforcements for both.

Quoted from PanzerFreak:

Wow...sorry to hear that is happening to your game. This is BS that this is evening happening on new games. Has your distributor said anything about taking care of the issue?

I just discovered it last night. Stern should at least reinforce the corners

Quoted from abagwell:

How exactly would I be able to tell if it isn't factory default? Sorry, new to pin ownership.

Adjusting is easy - just an Allen wrench. But the question becomes should your settings or not. I'd say if you consistently have trouble making a certain shot then try moving the flippers. You can always move them back. But there's always a give and take to a certain degree when messing with the flippers. The flipper angle that makes it easier to backhand the ramp for multiball lock might make it more difficult to make the right ramp, etc. Raising both flippers to make them less "droopy" might close the SDTM gap some but might make it harder to hit left or right targets. You have to adjust them where you like and it's OK to experiment.

Arts air ball protector has been working great on my GB.(Thanks Art and good luck on your medical problems) Even my Scoleri brothers worked right out of the box. My only GB and AS problems have been the cabinet which I fixed. I played a non-airball GB before I bought mine so I can say some kind of protector is needed. I added a pinball life lower playfield kit as well.

So far I've had zero service calls this summer from my Stern games (AS and GB). Also I've had zero problems with WOZ though I averaged 2 calls per summer on WOZ the last 2 years in addition to the multiple problems I had during my ownership months of October through April. I guess it goes to show that JJP can make a reliable game once it's dialed in.

I think my center post has a rubber ring - I don't see one on yours

How can I make Newton balls more sensitive? Maybe go with lighter balls? Are the dayglo balls better?

#4067 1 year ago

The ball gets stuck many times at the top where switch is. I'll try to adjust that.

#4069 1 year ago

Thanks! A big thanks. Book stacking is fine. The library ball gets stuck at the top. I thought it was a switch but I'll remove.

#4071 1 year ago

I'll look at that as well - I have Art's protector.

Consider buying the Pinball Life center post. It only saves about 20 - 30% STDM and it is removable - it does not make this game easy at all. After a long while of playing this game you will get a sense of what shots to avoid and you can remove the center post if you want.

Quoted from Utesichiban:

I bought my GB Premium from a guy locally about 8 months ago. Can anyone tell me how to turn on the scream everyone complains about in the settings? I would like to turn it on just to hear what all the fuss is about but have gone through the settings and have not been able where to turn it on. Any insight is appreciated.

Adjustments - GB - Scare feature (#49 I think)

#5827 4 months ago
Quoted from Utesichiban:

Thanks but I haven't been able to find it. Any idea where?

Open access door. Press black button twice. Choose "ADJ" then choose "G.B." Go to #49 "Allow Scare Feature" and turn "On"

I keep mine off - it scares the bejeezus out of you as it's loud and completely random.

Quoted from Don44:

That's the spirit! I have been waiting a week now for the new code and I'm getting anxious. I only picked it up a week ago. Seriously though, I wouldn't know the difference at this point. I have probably played about 20 games on it and I don't think I have really even had a good ball yet. It's fun but a lot of sdtm and outlane drains.

I installed the SDTM center post long ago - I think it helps this game...not something I'd normally do but it saves the ball about 25%. Also it's removable.

I finally cut the Scoleri's off - I think it makes the game a bit better.

#5902 3 months ago

What are you supposed to do when "add a ball" lights?

#5906 3 months ago
Quoted from yzfguy:

Get the ball in that scoop and an extra ball is added during the multiball.

Thanks!

I would add the airball preventers and the center post - you can remove the center post if you want to. Also replace the hex connector under the right ramp with a 3/4 to 7/8 inch hex connector from Marco spec. Replace the top screw with a 6/32 one-half inch screw also. This will give you and adjustable right ramp - the factory ramp is set too steep.
