Anyone have a spare GNR gun shooter handle for sale..?

#1003 35 days ago

Anyone ever have an issue where the Snakepit jackpot wouldn’t advance? It should go through a 1x 2x 3x sequence where the game selects which multiplier (as well as other snakepit jackpots) My game used to advance, but now it seems to have lost the advancing logic. The switch in the Rose Handle shooter lane registers; so I’m lost to what switch would trigger the jackpot. TIA!

Did you check the switch that is mounted in the cup?

I really hope you get a response but I’d be surprised. I’ve only seen one for sale a long time ago from a guy in Europe and he wanted crazy money for it. Hope you can find one.

They do pop up, but prerty rarely. i have a good history finding nos or rare data east parts. This is year two.of searching

Was in talks with the.Europe guy, but couldn't pull the trigger

Quoted from vec-tor:

Yes sir ... 100 operational. I figured a switch was not registering, but up/down the ramp they are perfect.

How much was he asking?

#1009 34 days ago

Toppers can be hard to find and pricy. I sold mine and went with a Laseriffic that I thought looked better. I know guys like original but factory one was so cheaply made. Guess that’s why there are so few of them and expensive.

Quoted from Dallas_Pin:

Did you test the switch in the bowl (on the green ramp) with a ball or a finger? That is the switch that advances, not another switch.

#1011 34 days ago
Quoted from MJW:

He actually had two. First was $1000 I think? Second he waned $850?

Finger of course (insert my stupidity of not rolling a ball through it).. will run a ball through today. Thanks for reminder

mine did this, bad switch in the bowl ramp

#1015 34 days ago

Bowl switch issue fixed. Loose switch ; When the ball hit it hard enough, the entire switch would push back. A light push did not move it. Adjusted and back to GnR

#1016 33 days ago

Ok, looks like the Bally/Williams extra ball is almost identical and works. Not sure why they just don’t match the font and call it Data East considering that’s the only difference beside being able to switch bulbs without breaking your knuckles and the button

Would anyone by any chance have the Pinbits GnR back panel mirror piece uninstalled? I need a picture of it with a tape measure beside it. It would save me pulling it out of my machine and breaking something in the process due to my incompetence

Do you need the long strip or just the small piece?

The long strip please.

#1020 19 days ago

I thought I had my old one in the 'stash', but of course I can't locate it at the minute. I'll check a different area a bit later today.

#1021 17 days ago

Greetings. Hope there's room for one more fan. I purchased my GnR's pin over 7 years ago (for $500) and have been "restoring" it ever since. I worked on it when I had both the time and the money. It's now complete (I think) and 100% operational (I'm sure). It was a long haul but worth it.

I appreciate the expertise you all shared in this forum. I read your postings multiple times, took notes, and applied what I learned. I wanted to make the repairs myself and learn something completely new. Unfortunately, I failed to document my restoration. Just didn't think of it.

Next, I'd like to add a mod. Since I'm 25 miles east of St Louis I'd like to start with the "St Louis Riot" mod if I can find one.

Again, thanks for sharing your expertise.

The two best mods (in my opinion, of course) are the color dmd and adding a shaker. Both of those make the game seem right at home next to games that are 20 years newer.

If you find one, let me know! I’d love one too!
Color DMD, PinSound and Speaker upgrade: highly recommended!

And you got a hell of a deal on your machine!

Ok, after a couple months of stripping this machine down, cleaning and fixing what was broke, and getting it back to its stock condition, (except the ColorDMD and MicroScreen - had to ditch Slash Doll and led Strips, etc) got to finally play my first games on this Pin.

You can’t really tell while you are stripping them down, but you do have an appreciation for everything that goes into a Pin minus gameplay when you do. I did this with Borgs previous machine Data East Star Wars and that Machine a very underrated no doubt. You see the design at its core, the flow, and the artwork that surrounds the play.

While I think the art on DESW is a touch better (by Markus Rothkranz - Ever Notice Slash’s shirt in the upper right playfield plastic?) this just might be the best Pin I’ve ever played. I was curious how the ramps would play versus Star Wars which is a single shot from either flipper as long as your flipper coils are solid. Not GNR. Each ramp has it’s own distinct flow and backhanding the G or the R is almost a no go (if you can do this, fuck you). Lots of balanced play and modes which one doesn’t stand out giving you a huge payout vs others making you want to play them all. The orbits were well thought out and if you don’t get a solid shot, you won’t get the full orbit bonuses. Just lots of little things that you will miss a reward if your shots aren’t spot on.

I now know why everyone says this is a forever pin, and so you can take another one of these GNRs off the 3000 list during my lifetime. And my living trust will state “if you should inherit this Gun’s N Roses Pin and ever decide to sell it, you will lose all and payback any fortunes you received from this trust and forever be the dick of the family tree”

#1033 11 days ago

BTW, does anybody know where I can get the GNR Rules for the 3.0 CPU ROM? I see a 2.0 floating out there, but cant seem to locate the 3.0

Hook it up!

#1034 11 days ago

What is this micro screen you speak of?

#1035 11 days ago

This machine is bolted down in my home as well. We love it!

I bought my machine, all original, with the original ROMs. I updated to 3.0 and scoured the world looking for release notes. Never found them. Maybe we should reach out to Lyman? Lol.

#1037 10 days ago
Quoted from shepP:

This one. It has a custom GNR frame and lots of classic GNR video footage

Quoted from Dallas_Pin:

So, should I start a thread to try and attempt to compile the 3.0 rules? I'm also curious because of the "undocumented rules" which is explicitly listed on page 14. There is a lot of hidden stuff on Borgs Data East Star Wars (which didn't explicitly say so anywhere), so I'm pretty sure there are going to be items nobody has uncovered. IE Speeder Mode wasn't discovered in DESW until somebody hacked the code, and Indiana Jones:TPA had hidden monkeys in the mine cart tunnel which was only discovered a couple years ago. For instance Backstage Pass is not listed anywhere in any manual, but we all know that's there

Sooooo, any good public place to compile the existing 2.0 rules with all the extras - or do we want to keep them hidden like fight club?

Guys, I was wishy-washy on selling my GnR that I've had for 20 years+. But 3 NIB games coming in next few weeks. Something just gotta give and it's GnR.

Super condition, prototype play field. ColorDMD (plus original DE DMD), PinSound board (plus original DE board), FF speaker kit, Invisiglass, LEDs, extra set of plastics, etc.

Glws. Nice game. Mine is pretty much the same as yours so interested to see sell price.

I just bought mine, man not parting ways for at least 20 years. But I won’t last that long

I love these early production playfields with "Multi-Ball" instead of the GNR logo on the yellow insert leading to the VUK.

I don’t think I’ve ever seen one with GnR in that location. You have a photo?
