Just joined the GOTG club.
Got myself a Pro. Put the latest Cleland mix on it and absolutely love it.
Is there an attract mode that has any music / callouts, or is it just lighting effects?

Quoted from lsuarch722:

Just got my pro setup and leveled; however, at every launch, if the ball follows the right lane it always activates the lower right pop bumper before it’s able to make it to the right flipper. Is this normal? I only ask because in every video I’ve seen, the ball slips right past the pop bumper straight to the flipper to get you started. Let me know if any of that sounded like garble. Thanks!

I think you mean your right sling.
This will either be the table not quite level or the switches in the sling being too tight.
Unless other have other issues, with maybe the ball guide?

Quoted from f3honda4me:

Ordered the psw10 from amazon. I’ll look up shakers next.

Forgive my ignorance, but when you are adding a sub, does this install within the cabinet, or just sit on the floor externally?
If internal, how and where do you mount it?

Why does Quills quest kick me out of the mode before the timer has run out?
It appears to go through a countdown hurry up for points and then end the mode before the mode timer has completed?
Is this a code problem?

Can someone tell me which are the correct post sleeves for my GOTG Pro please.
I have ordered some standard 1 1/16 sleeves, but these are not correct.

Quoted from jeffsgames:

I think there is a "Stern Thin" size. I don't know if they hold up well. Seems some people in here hadn't had much luck with them from Titan. I just ordered some from Pinball Life and will try them out this weekend.

Thanks.
Let me know how they get on

Quoted from HarrieD:

Where did you order these? Here in Europe they seem to be impossible to find for a decent price.

I bought mine from The States and cost quite a bit, but there is a guy in the UK that will make any protector, you have to supply the original plastics if he hasn’t made them previously and he with then ship them back with the protectors.

Definitely worth dropping him a mail for a quote. Has a good reputation on the uk forum.

This has also happened to me since I stripped, cleaned and waxed mine too.
Can't see what is causing the issue, just assumed I wasn't hitting the shot clean enough.

Sometimes when the ball ejects into the shooter lane, it rebounds off of the side rail and goes back into the mouth of the trough. I then have to nudge / shake the machine to get it back into the shooter lane.
I've turn the power of the eject coil as low as you can, but still get this happening from time to time.
Becomes a big issue if it happens during a MB.
Anyone know how I can fix this?

Quoted from NeilMcRae:

some foam on the opposite side.

Hi Neil

Where do I get the foam? What thickness and how to I attach it.
It already has a shooter lane protector, as per the photo.
Thanks

Mentioned you on here before Col.
Excellent stuff, not just for GOTG, but for lots of other machines now.
Keep up the good work

Quoted from Colywobbles:

A few weeks ago I found a small Flourecent plastic sitting on the PF so investigated and found this pictured below.
Bear in mind these protectors were not made by me but came already fitted to my GOTG LE when I bought it.
The orb protector had broke in 2 places due to how narrow the protector had been made but it could have been worse and been the original one which is just as narrow. The protector fitted was exact whereas I always make mine slightly larger by around 1-1.5 mm
BTW I did enquire and GOTG doesn’t do a common break set that I know of so you would have to get a full set if you wanted like new
So I went about redesigning this and a few of the important ones beefing them up a little just in case. Also while I was on I put a much needed window for the ORB that is so much better as it let’s you see the target and the light below is not diffused onto the orb when it splits or in the case of the pro lights up.
It took a few prototypes till I was more than happy with the outcome. I have since done a few sets for the community over in the U.K. Some have opted for clear while others have gone for colour coordinating rocket with Red and the right ramp in blue. Each to their own but for me it’s all about the eye popping candy of the fluorescent green.
This also spurred me on to replacing the slings and Outlanes as the flashback marks from the laser could be seen and I wanted to oversize those 1mm too.
Final pic is obligatory of my little pin wizard doing final testing.[quoted image][quoted image][quoted image][quoted image][quoted image][quoted image][quoted image][quoted image]
