Just joined the club! Got an LE the jjp update has not been done to it. The game came with a playfield protector and after 4 years was all sorts of hazy and nasty. I cut it off with a Scissors tonight and game plays fast now only issue is the beast Mech are now an 1/8” higher because of playfield protector. Any way to adjust the height of beast mechs so they lay flat? Also, my lock buttons seem very high and are causing ball to skip now.

Thanks LTG! I’ll fix tomorrow What about the green lock buttons? The ramp jumps hard when it hits them as well.

Quoted from LTG:

Bottom of the mech loosen a nut and turn the rubber stopper down and retighten.

Quoted from Goronic:

Also, there are protectors on the L O C K rollovers - you can remove them and it should fix that issue

Where are the protectors. Do they just pop off? Snap off? Twist? Sorry. My first jjp game. I must say... being a current owner of games like ghostbusters. Totan. Indiana Jones Williams, I have myself second guessing my collection and wondering why I don’t have more jjp games. Simply awesome.

Quoted from Goronic:

JJP pins are quite impressive to play! Also, the disks can be removed by getting a fingernail under them and pulling them off. Then clean the remaining stickiness that is left are removing the mylar. The rollovers will be much smoother to roll over, be brighter, and prevent a lot of air balls.

That’s worked perfectly. Game is playing amazing tonight! Got to first wizard mode into the fire and got to stage 2 890,000 points or so. I’m new to this game so every time I play its something new. Only issue currently is the back middle captive ball switch doesn’t register very easily. So I assume it’s probably just a switch adjustment.

What a blast however! Amazing game.
