Quoted from Lonzo:

Alright
Here is a 600 dpi scan of the lower playfield flipper area. I loaded it on dropbox since it is 95mb. I only have the standard account so the link will only work for 7 days. So someone might be able to download it and put it on a permanent site if they want. The scan is just a pure scan and has not been edited at all so you will have to do all of that. The colors are not as vibrant as the ones on the playfield so you will have to color match as necessary.
Here is a picture to show you what area was scanned.

Hope this helps you guys out.

any chance you still have this and could share again?

UPDATE!!!!

Ok... I think we have the file scaled out to print... getting a test print this week (I am on vacation over the weekend)

printing from flipper shaft hole to flipper shaft hole... from just under where it says DRY LAND to the bottom of the graphics down the drain... so like the shape of a home plate in baseball...

there will be a hole around SHOOT AGAIN that will be will be a die cut circle so that will light up correctly... and the wear does not seem to affect the insert on any I have seen...

You can trim the decal to your choosing before you apply if you want...

not planning on doing any coating on the decal... I think extending mylar past the edges will help any future wear, so I am going to be cutting my own mylar to put over it and further protect the area... but he can print them with a gloss coating also...

UV stable inks.... blah blah blah...

Looking in the $50 - 60 range for the decals since it will be a small run... and my buddy needs to recoup setup time and costs... I am making nothing on these...

will post next week how it turns out and see who needs them...

#103 9 months ago

here is a quick pic (small) of what will be printed... if your wear is outside of this area.. your playfield is hosed... just kidding... I have not seen any worn beyond this area, and mine is pretty bad...

Got the first decal... Colors are not exact, but close enough I think. Looks better in person. Camera actually exaggerates the difference. Lines up great. I applied it and put Mylar over it. I removed the flipper bats and shafts and the ball guides when I applied it. Decal goes all the way to the drain. Then I cut a slightly larger piece of mylar to put over it. Way better than bare wood that's for sure.

Sticker is super thin so as not to affect the ball in any way. Have to be careful when applying it not to stretch it any. I lined up the top folded back part of the backing and cut it off and worked from the top down to apply it. looks like the cost will be $60. They are UV solvent inks on the sticker. Scan is 600 DPI and matches the playfield well. You will need to mylar over it to protect it, but the rest of the playfield has mylar anyway.

Let me know who is interested. If we can run a bunch I can probably get the price down.

I would love it if you could just share the file? I can print it on my own, I know someone on this thread scanned the image for you, and gave it to everyone for free. the link they shared has expired and now you want 50 bucks for it?

#112 9 months ago

Awesome, I am in for one, been hoping for this for three years since I got my machine. You did a great job matching it all up, looks great. Hopefully Steve can get them a licence and offer them on the PBR site for all the other people who would need it.

#113 9 months ago

I can share the file when I get back from vacation... No need to get mad at me... You could have downloaded the file too.. If you want to print it yourself go ahead. UV solvent inks on a decal thin enough to not affect the ball... Set up.. Plus wasted materials since it is a small print.. With die cut holes... Unless you own a sign shop.. With setup costs will be more than $50... Most will probably charge more for a single decal... As it wastes several feet of material to print just one... I guess my time is worth nothing... Now I know why I avoided pinside for so long...

Don’t let someone with five posts on Pinside (4 of which are asking for the free image) get you down. The Waterworld thread has a long history of helping each other out and the flipper wear area decal has long been the “grail” for owners. You stepped up and got it done and we appreciate it and look forward to getting it on our machines.

Not upset at all, Was just hoping you could share the original file that was expired because I missed it and didn’t want to pay for it because it was shared amongst this community. If that’s the way you roll, go for it. Don’t sweat it over me, no need to send the file. Peace

#117 9 months ago

Just got back from VACAY... PM me if you want a decal for your Waterworld... I will see how many people we get and let you know pricing.

Greetings Everyone,

This is Rob from Pinshakers and I have some good news for you. We are getting ready to release the next version of our shaker kits and they will be compatible with Waterworld! Beta testing was completed on a Stargate and the results are amazing.

An official announcement will go out as soon as the kits are released. In the meantime we need your help. Since the manuals for Gottlieb are unavailable for download, we have no idea what the trigger names are for each machine title. If you happen to have a manual for one of the machines in this line-up, could you please PM or email us the solenoid list. It should be located on the page for "Vll Parts Information" in a small section called "Solenoid, Driver Functions/Locations". That lists all of the solenoids/flashlamps and their names. Our email address is pinshakers@gmail.com in case you are unable to PM images on pinside.

Please do not post any images of the manual here in the forum. They are copyrighted material and we want to respect that. We will not post or distribute the images you send us and they will be deleted once we get the information we need in order to complete the user manuals for the shaker kits.

Thank you so much for your assistance, we can't wait to get these kits out to you guys!

Best Regards,

Robert Goebel

Here is the link the Waterworld flipper area scan... the file is HUGE... it is on Google Drive so it will not expire... it will stay as long as I leave it up... I will leave it as long as I can...

I only had two people respond to me about decals after I posted here...

I had one person repeatedly ask for the file because he didn't get the file and he would print it himself etc... AND I was not a fan that he tried to call me out like I was trying to make $ off of something that was given away... I did spend time getting it done... finding a printer, testing fit etc... and was basically selling the decal for cost and time... (like I need $5 for the effort of getting it done, setup, driving to the shop etc... I was recouping my costs that was it)

have at it... almost every Waterworld I have seen has wear issues... If you want a decal let me know... and I will get them printed ASAP...

Still waiting to see anyone else who fixed their Waterworld wear spots with the file.... what did you get charged to print it up? just wondering...

Oh and Your Welcome to all the people who thanked me for re-uploading it after they chastised me for having the file in the first place.

I will talk to my printer and get a few decals printed up... looks like only 4 people need one... so I will have 4 printed up...

Hope to have them done in the next week or two.

The decal came in and looks fantastic! Beautiful colors and lines up perfectly. I did manage to screw up the Mylar a little when putting it down and have some small bumbles but that’s on me. Looks much better then before, many thanks for doing this for us dies bards!

I know I’m late to the party but do you happen to still have any decals? If so, unless I missed it, what is your asking price? I will be picking up a Waterworld machine soon as my first pin and I assume if I don’t need one of these now I will eventually.

I have one left already printed up and ready to go...

PM me... $45 shipped to you...

I can get more... but I have to do a whole run and he charges me by the foot of material as many as he can fit....

All of the Flipper Area Decals are gone... if there is enough interest I can get more printed... Thanks guys! Enjoy your pins...

My first time doing this kind of thing. Glad to have helped a few pins look a little better.

#142 3 months ago

So I start looking for a solution for my wear marks today... 2 days after Lathroum posted all Decals were gone

If you ever have enough interest to make another batch, please let me know!

If you can drum up some more people... my printer has a minimum because of the size of the material... the more he makes the less they cost the less wasted material. And last time I did a VERY small run...

Has anyone had issues with the Atoll alignment?
The Deez runs fine, but Atoll is tipped up a little too high so the balls get stuck. Not the best picture but the ball is stuck at the ramp entrance.

After manually pushing it down to level the play it seems to be good now. Turned the machine on and off a few times and ball goes down the ramp now.
