Still not sure how changing a diode on a lamp socket wiped out a bridge

#1902 6 days ago

I think it just failed I'm the second owner of this game and almost all the parts in it are original

#1903 6 days ago

I've owned this hook since 1994

Could be just coincidence. Stranger things have happened. Let us know how you make out with the bridge

Man this game is fun! The new code is awesome! I’ve been playing it a lot the last week, a couple games around 300 million and then last night 426 million. Tournament mode, no extra balls. Got into multiball 3 times, got to bangarang And scored some good points in the modes like croc time and fast scoring along the way, and got the wind coaster ramp up to some pretty big values. I was a huge fan of the movie growing up. This game really immerses you into the adventure atmosphere with the music, call outs, sword fighting sounds, cannons, etc. also just found out this week that the modes on the right scoop are stackable with multiball. This game is a lot deeper than it gets credit for. I’m really glad that so many people either hated the movie or just wrote the game off because they thought the only way to get points was to spam the ramp. It made it affordable for me and my family, who cares what the pin side ranking is, it’s just pure fun!
Also changed the bulbs on the jackpot ramps to blue LEDs, with all the flashing going on in the game during multiball it can be hard to see what the jackpot is if you don’t know what you are doing, now it really stands out and looks great.

I have heard this recommended, Haven’t looked into it yet. I will have to check it out, thanks.

Therea no checking into it. If you loved the movie you must get one. Makes it seem like a completely different game. I was hesitant at first just because the price. After installing it i have never looked back and wondered how did i play it without pinsound.

Now I'm wanting one too. Are the Hook sounds available to download from somewhere?

I can send you the files once your ready for it. Just shoot me a pm. I also have saved files for the shaker kit to go with the sounds. You can add a shaker kit to the pinsound plus board made by pinsound.

The three things any Hook machine should have is:
1. Be in working condition
2. Chad's code
3. Pinsound

I have a HOOK pinball that my grandfather bought sometime in the early '90s that I have finally got working again. I have changed all the bulbs to LED, got some things repaired on the boards in the back, which controlled the vertical up kick.

Only one small issue is the right flipper is now sticking. I need to buy a rebuild kit for the flippers, but should I also replace the coils?

While I am doing this, can I upgrade the flipper buttons to illuminated buttons?

What is a pinsound, and where do I get one, and how do I install it.

Anything else I should do to this thing?

I did the colored screen in mine..Made the game look way more modern...

Agreed!

By default Hook only uses 2 brightness levels on the DMD which in that video are replaced by white and red only. Pin2dmd looks better still if you apply a full colouring map - vbobrusev on here has done a great job that he sells. I'm doing my own but it takes weeks!

Pinsound is a replacement for your stock soundboard. It allows you to have and switch between multiple "soundtracks," callouts for a game, and the volume level for callouts and music. It also has options to use headphones and other things. a new version has the ability to hook up a shaker motor and customize the vibrations to your game. https://www.pinsound.org/

If you haven't yet, upgrade your game's ROM to chad's version. Rule changes, audio changes, etc were all done by him to make the game much much much better.

https://www.pinballcode.com/

Do those two things. You won't regret the money spent on a pinsound and the change to the new ROM. To quote a certain pirate, "Have I ever made a promise I haven't kept?"
