Quoted from Oneironaut:

Can you please explain how you "accidentally" spent $370 for something you already have?
p.s. I may be smoking the wrong stuff.

I think that he meant that he accidentally purchased an extra spike 2 power splitter boards.

On the noodle bar, I am unable to get to the firmware update server. Atomic godzilla, and neon #1 work fine. Noodle attaches, but then gives an error about loading the page.

Yes - sorry about that - there was a firmware download issue with one of the previous versions. This has now been fixed, but to get to the latest, you'll need to update using the file instead of downloading direct from the server. To do that, download the latest firmware from here:

https://github.com/Stumblor/firmware-updates/raw/main/NoodleBar/NoodleBar-firmware-20231101-v1.0.3.bin

Then go to

Web UI > Settings > Update Firmware > Enter Wifi details > Update from file

After doing that, you can then use the server method from then on.

I cannot get my building to update firmware. It's been a nightmare.

I can navigate to the settings menu just fine, but when i enter my wifi details it simple reloads the page and says "please connect to you wifi by entering your wifi name and password" as if i didn't just fucking do that. I've tried creating hotspots and placing them directly on top of the building, i've tried connecting to routers, nothing is working.

Guess i'm stuck on firmware v0.0.1

If anyone wants to buy this pm me

Sorry for the frustration. I had a related issue and was able to update the firmware from a file, per Davey’s instructions. Perform the update while in the service menu (with the coin door power interlock pulled to ensure uninterrupted power to the building)

The early firmware did have some issues when it came to connecting to wifi and the firmware server which we've since resolved - it sounds like you might not even be getting to the point of being able to update by file. Really sorry about that and the frustration its causing.

The easiest way to work through anything like this is to PM or email me, I make sure everyone is sorted either by working through the issue or sending out replacements if needs be. You won't be left behind.

Is there any reason to upgrade from 1.02 to 1.03? What is the difference?

Literally only the firmware download fix - which wasn't working in certain situations. No other changes.

680 sent already to happy Godzilla owners! I am at 777 so almost another 100 to go before I am happy too. LOL.

Now looking for the update on the other 2 back buildings.

Quoted from Pinmeister:

Davey:

Yep - and just extended the run to an additional 200 units. We have about 100 more to do in the initial run, before we shift onto Area 51, but will be coming back to do the rest in a few months time.

You should be hearing from us very soon! More than likely during this run.

Subway Building (Tokyo Neon #3) to be demoed in the next few weeks.

Building 3 demo... yes!!

#768 3 months ago

The building full of noodles has arrived! Hearts a poundin, hands a sweatin...Tools at the ready.

Just a thought of mine, can you imagine an entire pinball machine done by Davey??? THAT, would truly be a sight to Stumble over.

#769 86 days ago

Is there a Tokyo Neon 3 thread ? I am pretty sure I am on the list but I have a whole box of GZ mods awaiting the final building for the backbox.

He hasn’t made a thread for it yet; but, he does have the Subway (left building) up for preorder on his site and mentioned he’s getting closer to finalizing the design for it.

Also, that’s only 2 of the 3 back wall buildings. He still has the center building to go. The more the merrier.

Super close, just waiting on the final circuit boards and cables to arrive which should be sometime over the next few days. I've also got a new Lolly postlight kit for Foo Fighters ready to demo, the lighting upgrades to Area 51 AAAaand the final BKSOR furnace upgrade waiting to film as well. Bonkers.

Installed the noodle bar today, looks great. I did notice when you start a godzilla Vs battle the back buildings light up from left to right when the game says, "godzilla vs ____" however the noodlebar doesnt light up. Is this normal or did I do something wrong? Maybe wrong GI sense bulb?

The buildings being lit like that would be activated by the flashers, which currently has no bulb in it for noodle bar. You could try adding the bulb back in, although I'm not sure what effect that would have as I've never tried it.

Alternatively, you could GI sense the flasher instead of the white GI, but again, that would mean the building would be off more than its on I think. I have some larger bulb adapters though if you'd like to try it!

Noodle bar mod is all installed. Looking forward to get the UFO mod in the coming weeks.

The other mods are from "Diddy's": https://pinside.com/pinball/market/shops/1310-diddy-s-pinball-mods-/by-game/2986-godzilla-pro

The center building is discontinued, however there is a new version for the premium/LE machines. (There's a pinside thread on it.)

The other building, bridge, towers and plane are still available.

Whoa, that Pro is crammed with almost every mod available. Any regrets you didn't just spend those $$$ and get a premium instead?

Some of us prefer the pro over the premium

Mine is pretty close to his and I have no regrets. As far as game play I have pros and cons on both version that is pretty much a wash but feel mine looks way nicer than your average premium.

Quoted from ichuckle:

I've heard that claim from a few others. Curious as to why? The Pro plays so differently, especially due to the static building.

#783 59 days ago

I bought the premium mostly because of the moving building. Similar to 1992 Bally Doctor Who.

#784 58 days ago
Quoted from CapeCodPin:

Whoa, that Pro is crammed with almost every mod available. Any regrets you didn't just spend those $$$ and get a premium instead?

I readily admit that the the amount of mods in a pro is over top and I sometimes wonder if I shoulda got a premium. But the premiums weren't available at the time I got my pro, I like the continuity of the mods across the pro, with the moving building I find the mods available for it don't look as nice. The bridge mod for the pro is consistent with the bridge seen in the gameplay animations.

The next things to add will be the Atomic Godzilla, Stumblor UFO, the eventual Tokyo neon #3, speaker lights and at this point should also get a topper.

The important thing is I like playing the game and I enjoy the mods I've added and this machine will be around for a long time.

#785 57 days ago

Thanks for the reply about my question, wanted to make sure I installed correctly. Looks great with the tokyo neon sign, cant wait for the subway building!

#786 56 days ago
Quoted from CapeCodPin:

I really hated the bridge. The destruction "animation" is boring and loud. Also, prefer the mechgodzilla shot on the pro even though its obviously a tad more difficult. I do like the building moving but over time I'm sure I'll prefer the lack of maintenance on the pro.

#787 50 days ago

Finally got a chance to install this today had it for some time

Install was straightforward and not difficult. Only minor issue was just getting the mounting screws to line up on the brackets but even that wasn’t a big deal just annoying.

Sign looks great and is a massive improvement over the original. Obviously not as game changing as the Tokyo sign but still worth it and a must have for my game.

Thank you Davey for the excellent mod and I look forward to the Subway sign. Hope you have some pics of it soon.

Define "super close" , cannot wait.

Please ensure compatibility with the different Godzilla mods around if possible atomic or interactive

Super close as in Tokyo Neon #3 (Subway) to be announced this Friday, with full pictures and videos! Woot!

I talk with all the other main GZ mod producers (Jazzbouche, TDiddy, Strummy, J85M etc) to make sure we are compatible with each other. The splitters I produce were designed to ensure they had plenty of scope for expansion also. We are golden.

But you are killing my wallet no worries though. Keep up the amazing work!!

I am glad I got on the Subway Bldg list early. I am looking forward to its reveal also. I was late getting on the Noodle Bldg list and still wanting and waiting. The Sign and UFO saucer with Lollipop swirlies made the game look awesome already. I am glad all these Mods are compatible. More please.

stumblor when I checked your list on your website for the Subway mod I don’t see my name. But I remember on the thread you added me as one of the first sign ups. Can you please verify for me if I’m on the list for Neon #3? Thanks!

Hey just checked and you're at position #6, which is also pulled up when I check on the website (using LeMansFan) could you confirm please what you entered on the website so I can check everything is working properly?

Sent you an email about your Afterglow stuff - is this meant to replace the populer GI OCD and LED OCD boards?

The splitter is super smart. One weird thing is that when it's all done, I will have 4 webservers under my playfield. (not counting pop bumper, heat ray, atomic gz, whatever, not sure if those work the same) Have to configure all of them independently.

Have you thought about developing an infrastructure that you can connect to 1 mod can control all 4(or 7!) mods? And have "apply to all" settings, and maybe some presets where all the mods can work cohesively together?

I'll be honest I haven't touched the settings on my scoop sign since i put it in since it's kind of cumbersome. I can't imagine going through it for 4 mods just to update colors or whatever.
