Quoted from NoSkills:

With the washer magnet fix am I just pushing the magnet core closer to the playfield or do the washers need to be big enough to overlap that and also push the magnet outer ring thing with the wires attached closer too?
Currently my washers just push the core closer and it works fantastically for about 20-30 mins then starts to fade, it still grabs the ball but just grabs and drops, it doesn't shake it around anymore. Anything else I can try?

The suggested washer is pushing the coil closer to the playfield, has no other magnetic properties. In fact, on mine, I simply cut a black rubber ring in half to make a thinner rubber ring, and used that instead of a metal washer. Looks more 'factory' as well and works great. (Also make sure the playfield is clean directly above the magnet and some say adding wax in that area works even better)

I make them to sell, my friend.

I was going through and adjusting some settings, mostly back to factory settings, and I changed one that I guess I didn't want to change.

Normally, after starting a multiball, you can still lock balls in groots mouth to get the 2x scoring. I've somehow turned that off, and made it a virtual lock. Any idea what setting controls that? I'd like to change it back.

#8405 61 days ago

Went to work on a gotg pro and groots mouth would not close all the way. It just chattered. Moving my finger/hand it felt like a tooth inside the gear mech was missing/broke. I assume this isn't the first motor someone has had to replace with similar chattering issue?

Just putting a feeler out here... I just sold my Guardians pro

The guy who bought it was not interested in most of the mods, so I removed them.

Let me know if anyone is interested in buying all of it for a reasonable price. Best offer I guess, otherwise I'll make individual ads for everything separately. I took pics of everything while it was still on the machine so message me if you want pics.

It's about $1,000 worth of mods, everything is about a year old, like new condition, and working.

Anybody out there have any luck with Cleland 1.11 code for GOTG?

I just installed insider connect and when I install the 1.11 Cleveland code it gets to initializing screen and then reboots initializes reboots, rinse repeat.

When I put in the 1.13 stock code it works just fine.

Not trying to rain on anyones parade, but I gave up on the custom code long ago. It was wonderful, but I'm an Insider Connected junkie and lost my modded code to add insider. Since then, with the Stern updates, it seems no one has an alternative code available that works. YET. I'd love to go back to Cleland code, but if Stern keeps releasing updates every so often, it's a losing battle.

Mine also works fine. I'm using Cleland 1.11 v1 for Pro. SuperMas77 which version are you using and did you try flashing again to a new card?

Same. 1.11 Cleland. Works like a charm.

I'm with you on the IC junkie part, but it's a tough pill to swallow once you go previous Cleland, at least for me. The stock call outs are so bad it reminds me of why I sold my AIQ. That one was just awful. Cleland code on GOTG is so dang good it makes the game to another level.

Maybe it's just the 1.11 premium/le V.2 that has an issue?? I think he'll eventually get around to updating to 1.13 so I may just go stock code until that happens and try again.

I had the same problem, I tried to reach Cleland to find a solution but no luck. I don't even know how to downgrade the Stern Code so I could at least play the 1.11 Cleland Code properly, because now it just reboots.

Don't use a Mac. It does something to the file. I had a similar problem. Use a Windows PC.

Well crap, I only have Macs and Chromebooks. I was assuming it might be Mac related so thank you for the confirmation. Time to borrow some sugar and a PC from the neighbors.

I have an LE and I tried both options and neither of them worked. Once you turned it on starts to reboots every single time. It’s a shame you can not play if with the Cleland code and use Insider at the same time.

Sorry for my lack of knowledge on this matter but can you explain me how can you do it without having the machine rebooting? Does your machine runs on 1.13 stern code? Thanks for your time and help

With a MAC using etcher, you?

#8426 52 days ago
Quoted from NunoDirector:

Same, I used a Mac and etcher. Didn't work for me on Cleland GOTG code, but did work on his Stranger Things code. Looks like there is some type of bug for GOTG code being burned with a Mac vs. PC.

Do you have access to a PC to try it that way and report back?

Just to clarify, Cleland 1.11 is based on Stern 1.11. When you swap SDCARDS, you swap everything... when you remove the card, the machine is no longer running anything. It's blank. In addition, many folks are running Cleland 1.11 flawlessly, so in your case you are having SDCARD writing issues, the code is fine. Try to see if you can write the card on a PC with Win32imager. Start with a fresh, never been used, name brand Class-10 16GB card from a name brand that you purchase from a reputable source. Then try burning it again on a PC this time.

I have had instances in the past where I used Etcher on a Mac and Etcher ended up modifying the file. The last time I remember this happening with a 1.96GB rom file. I would use a 2.0GB SD card, but the write would fail on Etcher because it was doing something behind the scenes that resulted in the final file size being 2.01GB.

I move to Windows and everything was fine. Why? I don't know. I just know it didn't work.

It's a new machine Stern should replace.

I'll start a inquiry

Run the diagnostics to see if any movement, and also put a meter on the two pins on the motor to see if you get 24v dc on the pins to confirm the driver is working. It's a standard DCM-1018 motor, but there may be something else going on before you swap it.

My friend, you were absolutely RIGHT! I went and wrote my 16 Gigas SD Card on a PC using "Win32imager" and worked flawlessly on my Guardians! So that means for every owner who tried like me to write their SD CARDS using Balena etcher on a MAC, at least for Premiums/LE, something must be happening with the program or something else, because the cards after been written they are not allowing the machine to load the game how it should be. So thank you so much my friend @markharris2000! Shout to you for the advice and your help! Finally I got to play it with the cleland code and it's something else and I'm bursting with happiness right now! Thank you so much to everyone who reached out to me through DMs to help me when I coulnd understand what was going on! Thank you again, you were the real guardians of the galaxy here!

#8435 43 days ago

This is great news! I'm having the same issue with Mac and Etcher. Appreciate you posting this follow up.

#8437 40 days ago

Before I make an ad for this I thought I would post here.

I have a set of Groot hands (the official Stern ones) that I never installed into my machine and now I sold my machine. They are brand new and have never been installed or used.

I actually like the way they look but I just never got around to installing them. So I have no use for them now.

Please note, I never bought the hardware that is needed to install them. So you’ll have to buy that separately.

$150 for both plus $15 for shipping.

Message me if interested. I’ll probably make an official ad by this weekend.

Here’s a picture I took of of them sitting in the mchine (when I had it)

Hi all, I just joined the club. I've read the entire thread and have already learned a lot.

It's a really fun title, overshadowed by newer machines, but very fun anyway. Groot is a big part of the challenge. Rocket's return still catches me off-guard every time I hit it- so fast. Well laid out shots, and a good soundtrack out of the box. Mod soundtracks also available, and you can install IC for $200 if you don't already have it installed. Look at adding some plastic protectors around the ORB if they are not there already. Little Shop of Games has replacement mouth cast for $50 if yours is getting worn.

#8443 35 days ago

I still have some mods leftover from the Guardians I sold recently. Message me if interested.

Here’s what I have left;

Guardians mirrored, art blades with decals by Pingraffix.

Star lord dome light cover by Mod father.

Groot vines dome light cover Mezel Mods.

Ravagers symbol dome light cover (x2) Mezel Mods.

Infinity Stone. Mezel Mods

Brand new set of Groot hands (official stern).

Colored plastic protectors;
(All by Mezel Mods)

Left & right slings green plastic protectors , 1 snapped in half (but probably still usable).

Left and right inlane orange plastic protectors.
Rocket Raccoon orange plastic protector.
Right orbit red plastic protector.
Red, green and orange pop bumper plastic protectors.

Added 35 days ago:

Sold some more of these mods.

I still have;

mirror blades
groot hands
colored plastic protectors
colored pops protectors

Added 35 days ago:

and the infinity stone

#8444 35 days ago

I put the latest Cleland V2 on my game last night using a mac with no issue at all. I'm just curious if there is a general preference for V1 vs V2. I'd switch tonight to try V1, but my son would kill me because he posted a huge GC score tonight.

Since yours is new, it would be a good time to grab the orb protector plastic. That takes a beating. Thankfully pinball life ended up offering a replacement so I bought a spare.
