here you go!
Quoted from DorkVonWaterfall:
so, you went Pinsound too, right?
LOL ... yeah a couple years ago and honestly i like it but its a pain in the a$$ ... if it weren't for Julien42 's preloaded files I would hate it..... last night i download his newest one ("BERSERIK") but still haven't been able to get it to work and have had zero luck trying to customize any ones of my own ... Guess I just dont have the "patience" ... (pun intended ) lol

So just an update ... I had not been to pin sound.org in over a year and did not realize there was a new firmware update ...after uploading that into my card everything works fine.
Quoted from Coindork:
The coil on my ball plunger has gotten progressively weaker to the point where recently balls will back up in the shooter lane during multi ball.
Anybody know a source for a rebuild kit for this?
Or suggestions on what to do (clean and replace the sleeve?).
Ive never taken it apart and looked at it and just wanted to hear people suggestions before I delve into it.
It's a design flaw and why Data East had 3 revisions - see this service bulletin - http://www.myhomegameroom.com/pinball/gunsnroses/images/servicebulletins/sb63.pdf
Someone mentioned in another thread (or maybe this one) a long time ago that they should have put a switch in to clear the lane before it launches another ball - which would have been brilliant. I have version one and don't have very many issues anymore. Just make sure your game is level and adjust the drop wire form ramp with flat washers underneath both screws until you get it right. it takes trial and error - When i moved a couple years ago I had to start all over. Frustrating but you can get there with some patience. The balls getting stuck is also the reason the previous owner put it up for sale.
the revision 2 and 3 ramps are hard to find but come up for sale from time to time and are very expensive from what i have seen - last one I saw on eBay was like $600 !!!
Quoted from Foraree34:
Thanks for the info above...
Ok 2 steps forward and 1 step sideways....
Is any spray contact cleaner safe for plastics and under playfield wood? De-oxit or other electrical parts cleaner
Absolutley NOT - do not spray anything under the playfield.
As far as the the drain not registering - there is a large switch for that - i changed mine few years ago Ill try to remember to check when i get home tonight to see what the part number was
Quoted from HighwayStarr:
How are you guys planning to light it? i have one but haven't attached yet because im trying to figure out best way since its mounting directly up against a board
My mistake , upon “hands on” further review there is enough room to put light behind it ..... I think tomorrow I’ll try a LED strip behind it and see how that goes .
Quoted from Foraree34:Looking for a reworked magnet board, looks like Great lakes Modular is a dead end now, per other pinside theads and unanswered emails....
What are my other options or suggestions as I keep blowing magnet fuses
If you truly need a new board Terry has them @ www.pinballlife.com
Quoted from Draegermeister:
Who's excited about the mirrored backglass?
I sure as hell am!
That's pretty cool BUT I mean where does it stop? LOL, I need that like I need a hole in my head but trust me i'm not pissing on it , I "get it" =)
Hope I'm not breaking some sort of forum etiquette rule here but just wanted to share a few pics of my "Keith Richards inspired" backline mod on my GNR. I also posted it at https://pinside.com/pinball/forum/topic/guns-n-roses-mods but that thread seems to be dying slowly while this one is still somewhat thriving. My apologies if anyone is offended
Quoted from wolfemaaan:
The only rule you broke is nobody including Slash drinks Budweiser ♂️
LMAO Neither do I but i wanted to get something instantly recognizable from a distance as those cans aren't very big. I know I got the Jack and the Marlboros right. Looks like he does like Bud as wardrobe at least. The Camels on top the stack must belong to AXL or Dizz ....errrr i mean Gilby
me neither, the games 25 years old so it is what it is..... and besides there are other options now. I was initially unhappy with Pinsound a few years ago but now I think its F'N great and can't imagine the game without it now. Something very satisfying about being able customize it to your own liking.
I use 2 1/2 “perfect play” red colored rings from pinball life - seem to work ok. I used to use white but they show too much dirt and black looks too blah imo
I used to see those for sale at Chicago PINEXPO everyear. I was interested but leery because of price and the idea of a steel ball hurling towards it , but looks like yours has done just fine
Quoted from pinballjah:
I think mine are Pinblades. Mostly occurs on the right side..
My pinblades were damaged on the left side , obviously our machines are probably off a bit ….I tried to use pieces of poster board (Thin kind you buy at Walmart in school supplies ) but they get bound up not much room but it works good enough if you stay on top of it however, I recently bought a new set and replaced the left side but then I also got into a flipper issue got careless and manage to mar the new one … oh well, I guarantee I'm the only who notices it.
I've never seen mirrored blades for GNR ….
As I mentioned previously I’m on my second set of pinblades and it doesn’t take much to damage them by lifting and lowering the playfield - wondered the same thing about mirrored myself
Quoted from gweempose:
After installing a Pinsound board in my game, I downloaded one of the custom mixes off Pinsound's site and put the entire .zip file on a usb drive. I then stuck the drive in the Pinsound board and turned the game on. I soon heard a message that said "converting audio". After about 20 minutes or so, a second message said "10% complete". Is it supposed to take this long, and will it take this long every time I reboot the game? I can't deny that I'm kind of digging the music it's playing while converting the file, but this seems like an excessive wait. Since this is my first experience with a Pinsound board, I want to make sure I didn't do something wrong.
yes unfortunately the first time you convert the files it takes quite a while - i think mine was initially 2-3 hours but after the first time its not an issue anymore, - I believe there is a quicker way by doing the conversion directly from your computer but i don't remember exactly or if I am imagining it. Keep in mind I was extremely frustrated with pinsound when i first got mine to the point i was gonna give up and sell it but I eventually got a much better understanding of how to add and change custom sound files and think its pretty awesome!
Quoted from Blackjacker:
According to that first site you linked: "The grips for the New Vaquero are not interchangeable with the Blackhawk/Vaquero or Super Blackhawk." and "While very similar, the grip frame is slightly smaller and shaped more like the original Single Action."
The GNR frame apparently most closely matches the Blackhawk frame, and GNR owners that have used Blackhawk grips mention needing to trim them slightly, so if the New Vaquero is indeed slightly smaller then it seems you'd be looking at trimming the New Vaquero grips down even more. Maybe send them a scan/trace of the original grips to get their thoughts. I ended up having to send my originals to the guy that made my replacement grips.
yep - what he said, I used Ruger Blackhawk grips and had to slightly modifiy them
I used to always use white rubber but they get dirty too fast - switched to RED silicone a couple years ago - no real complaints here. I do still use rubber on the bumper post because the silcone ones really seems to send that ball flying !
Quoted from allsportdvd:
Not sure whether I go black and then paint the cabinet under the logo in red or leave the cabinet black and do the rails in red.
quoted image][quoted image]
I think you're on the right track - I think a black rail with red paint under would be more subtle - I think the red rail on black cabinet might be "too much" and the emblem will get lost in all of the red but I could be dead wrong. Great looking rails BTW , keep us posted !
Quoted from ccbiggsoo7:
that's just it, $400 for a piece of brittle plastic. you can order repos from pinball center I believe.
Yeah, I was involved in a group buy with them recently - I'm thinking all of the reproductions were damaged in shipping they were so fragile. It's unfortunate
Quoted from pa_cramer:
Where did you get the duff decals from?
You didn’t ask me but since there is no response yet I figure I’ll answer - a guy sells them on eBay - just search for “Guns N’ Roses pinball” and you will find them along with album cover stickers to replace the piano key drop targets . The DUFF targets are padded. I have a set but you really can’t see them. Honestly I’m prob the only person who’s ever noticed them in my machine
