Subscribing as I am on the verge of buying a Guardians. Super stoked about the upcoming purchase and anxious to see how it looks next to my 'The Munsters'

24 hours from now I will be *finally* picking up a GOTG Premium.....stoked!!

And we of course are looking forward to the pictures of the unboxing of your new machine....

Quoted from AUKraut:

Never did like any of the Instruction/Free Play Cards I found out here for GOTG, so killed a little free time this morning. All are 300 dpi, sized 140mm by 75mm, and even made a special cleland one....enjoy!!!
NOTE: My printer printed them a touch large, so you may have to do a 1-2mm of trimming depending on your printer.

Wow, great work. I love when someone puts in the effort and then shares it with the community. Thanks!

Father's day gifts finally installed. Baby Groot and Hexagonal pin blades. I'm amazed a 5 month old baby has such good taste in pinball mods![quoted image][quoted image]

That baby groot looks so sweet. Nice gift from father's day.

Quoted from jlatko:

Got my Pro delivered tonight! Has Ronin's hammer and Cassette tape mods, art blades, flipper button and Groot's mouth and speaker grill LEDs, shaker motor and upgraded woofer.
Awesome thing happened coming out of the orb. Ball spun around as it should and released straight up into Groot's mouth! I had never seen that happen before.
Looks like I need a Baby Groot. That looks really cool.
Great game that I'm proud to add to the collection.

Really a delight to
watch guardiansof the galaxy pinball working ....

Thanks for your spam message. You have been reported.

Picked up mine after a long wait of 2 months and I am super stoked. Will post some pics en the next couple of days.

#4120 52 days ago

Got one question. When the orb spits out the ball and the magnet energizes I notice that the right slingshot also is energized. Does anyone recognize this?

I tried the coil test and there this behaviour isn't noticed. Is it something that is software driven?

I use version 1.06 with the Cleland sound mod.

Quoted from bobukcat:

Have never seen this happen, if you bang on the playfield in game does the sling fire? My guess is one of the sling switches is gapped too tight and the drop target releasing causes it to fire.

Okay thanks. It's good to know that this behaviour isn't normal so I can search some more.

Sling indeed is firing at random. But this issue occurs when the magnet energizes. It can be related of course but in my opinion it's not that obvious. Will remove the rubber tonight and check again.

#4135 50 days ago

Well, too tight sling switch was indeed the problem. Would never have thought that a magnet could cause this... As it turns out the ORB droptarget also resets and I guess that was triggering the slingshot.

#4138 48 days ago

Well, my personal high

Quoted from cldgin2:

Got all the “glowing” protectors installed!
I think they look amazing, would recommend to any one.
To any one who also did at least the Rocket protector - this piece seems to hit the shooter underneath it, forcing it to sit a bit uneven and ride a little high on the right side. Any one else experience this?[quoted image][quoted image][quoted image]

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

#4149 45 days ago
Quoted from Bilbo1161:

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.

Thanks, I will contact him.

Quoted from PeterG:

Isn't that just Convolux in europe? Led4pin has these in the netherlands and Freddy in Germany.

Convolux is only in 1 color per set. I want 4 different colors for mine. (And yeah, I can hear the haters barfing up a colored rainbow and unicorn right now).

#4154 44 days ago
Quoted from sirlonzelot:

Freddys convolux did have the exact same size then the plastics. The ulek ones are a little bit larger. In my opinion the wow effect is better with them.

You're from Germany, where can i find those Ulek's?

Quoted from cldgin2:

http://mezelmods.com/ Ordered a couple times from them. Prices very reasonable

Yeah, but I guess you don't have to worry about shipping and customs because you live in the US judging your account info. Once ordered some stuff for a customer, ended up paying double due to shipping and customs.

Quoted from Green-Machine:

It’s actually a cosplay helmet I’ve converted to a topper. I purchased it on Etsy from Kirin Props. I can get you a height later when I’m at home.
Thanks glad you like it!

Came across it last weekend in a toystore where they sold it for 35 euro's. Left it because my cieling is to low for it to add it as a topper. Now I regret it.

I replaced the stock cabinet speaker with a JBL Stage 810 4Ohm subwoofer for that extra oooompf. What a difference!

Using it for 3 months now, was reluctant on announcing it here as I was uncertain about the stress it would add to the amplifier on the Spike2 board. Using it on both my The Munsters as my Guardians of the Galaxy and so far it holds up great (250 plays on TM and 200 on GOTG) so I can securely assume this is a mod you can safely execute.

Quoted from Green-Machine:

I have one. It is a good fit for the game. Intensifies the game play.

Yeah, me too. Got the pinballife one. Easy to install, I didn't need to make any adjustment in the settings (although you can disable it) and it works great. A really good addition to the game.
Paid 135 euro's for it. Another supplier delivers the same shaker for 40 euro's more.

Quoted from Pinballnewb01:

This only stops when the machine gets switched on and off. [quoted image][quoted image]

Yeah, all other issues magically disappear when one switches the machine "on and OFF".

#4221 11 days ago
Quoted from Pinballnewb01:

If everything in life was that simple

It is, if you put the machine first on and then off it will display no issues whatsoever.

#4223 10 days ago
Quoted from Pinballnewb01:

Of course it should've been "off & back on".

Aaaah, now it makes sense.
