Love mine, and getting it back from SEVERAL catastrophic board injuries tomorrow(after 3 months!)....lesson learned never boot up your machine when its plugged into the same line as the battery charger on for your car.....cant' wait to play it. ColorDMD! if you are looking for next title take this one(and HS2 - Getaway), so much to work with...

installed Pinbits shaker which is in "test" stage, very easy, and pretty cool. Nice job on their end.

Just like to share this info if you ever have it happen (similar to one above). Playing a game and suddenly I get the following:
1. keeps saying "you Cheat Dr Jones"
2. balls keep firing out of the trough
3.12 V secondary fuse blowing (replaced and lasted a few minutes)
4. 12v blown meant no flippers, accent lights or color dmd.
....so problem was?

Found broken wire on sending opto switch 42 right ramp enter. Fuse stopped blowing after I raised pf so wire moved slightly and was no longer grounding. A lot of action for one broken wire to be sure. On good note resoldered both connections on that opto and topped 1 billion points on first game after repair for a GC score. A lot of Jackpots, but no frog, no Fish of Tayles and no Eternal Life mode....
Still a simple fix after finding it and a great game after.

I'll chime in the LED. I bought my IJ almost 4 yrs ago, bought a cointaker kit and it looked better and stood up well. I found, however the color matched inserts wash out a lot of what you should see. I've turned to bulk pack of natural white frosted from comet. Spent one day this weekend on it. Tore down the top, replaced rubbers with Titan clear, starposts with green metallic, chrome, and glow in the dark at top lanes. Pop caps swapped to brite mods evo (white under, red outer, blue inner). Brightens the top area and when the blue inner goes with the bumper it looks like lightning (think Castle Grunewald.) Also a pinsound on pinball pro speakers wired 2.1. Wow, this thing shakes the room now. Pics next. Before anybody asks, I pulled and cleaned the subway too, no point in all that work to have crap coming up from under.

Once you've purchased the board and signed up to the forum linked to the site the OST file is there. Just checked. It is more than worth it on this title. Make sure to get the 2.1 kit for it to. Amazing clear sound, and thundering bass, plus all the extra sounds.

Quoted from PeterG:

Is there any mod you do not have?

Pretty sure there is. Some like the mods, some don't. I find my pin enjoyment is 50/50 working on them(fixing, cleaning, modding), and playing them. I've been an Indy fan since seeing Raiders in the theatre in 1981, and every one since. This one is staying, but I think mods should be easily removed to, nothing permanent. If I sell/trade a table removal is at receiving party discretion. I think a way to make it your own.

Getting intermittent sound loss with Pinsound board, and a sound board interface error. Also some color loss on my color dmd. Reseatting the ribbon cable that goes to all boards resolves this. Any recommendations of good source for new ribbon cables?
