Hi all, looking to join the club. Please direct me to a link explaining what to look for.
Sorry to ask, I couldn’t readily find one.

Just got a NIB LE, had been in a warehouse sealed in the box but sitting there I guess. Sorted a few problems. One problem is the elf targets work in test up and down but don’t go up in play. When the game starts they wobble like they are trying to go up but can’t. In test they appear as smooth as silk. I reloaded the 3.1 and that fixed a couple of other issues but not this one. Any ideas.

Quoted from Goronic:

There are plastic ledges that 'hold' the drop target up that could be broken. I found that in test it would sometimes hold, but in game play it did not.
Get a light and look to see if they are broken (when viewing from under the play field). I had to replace my whole assembly to fix that issue. I want to know if anyone has found a way to replace those black plastic 'ledges' instead of having to replace the whole assembly? I seen a few posts ago someone tried with a stern replacement and those didn't fit. I would love to hear from JJP on this - and perhaps I should just call them.
NOTE: If you have the opposite problem and the drop won't go down it is a broken spring. - And that is a quick inexpensive repair (unlike the other)

Thanks, will do both.

Has anyone tried plugging a guitar amp into the headphone jack. Would it work.

#8242 3 months ago
Quoted from pinballinreno:

I wouldnt, but:
Headphone amps are available for headphones.
I use a fiio one. You can also build an altoids box one.

What do you think could go wrong.

I have had this game for bit over a month NIB. One spotlight flickers one has stopped working. Taken both globes out bent the wires every way. Swapped globes as well. The flickering one continues and the other won’t work. Checked the connections and reseated. After the connections the wires aren’t traceable. Anyone else had similar spotlight issues and could help.

It’s just an indication of how few people have had the opportunity to live with the game. IMHO you really need to own this game.

Quoted from wesman:

Really nicely surprised Houdini auto backs up it's scores and settings. I wish JJP adopted this method also.

Would be good if it auto back up to the cloud daily when they do the connectivity update.
Anyone heard more on internet connection progress.
