Quoted from pinbuoy:
Can anyone supply links for repro Alien heads?
I've seen the Marco one.
I've got a few I could part way with....
Quoted from vwallat99:
Switch your pinballs. I use the Glo-balls on my ID4 , I like the look and feel to them and they really get flying around on this machine. They give your machine less stress because the impact isn't going to be as harsh as the steel barrings. I've been saving my plastics as well as my ID4 head since I've switched. Otherwise really not much else you can do because it's a bash toy and it's the integral part of game so it will continue to be bashed so nothing you can do but wait lol..
anyone see any negatives to adding these? I really liked them in my Avatar, but they also flew around in ways in which the machine wasn't designed for, like ramps without tops, they'd come out of the ramp and get stuck in places where regular pinballs wouldn't.
Quoted from bigbadmiker:
Here's some pics of mine. I've had it a little over 2 years. The movie is one of my favorites. I like the theme and the sound is great, although I think mono - one speaker. It's a fun pin although gets boring after awhile because of its simplicity. That may be the reason (it's simple and easy) though why everyone that comes over and plays it, really likes it. My wife still loves it and will be a challenge to get her to let it go.
Love the red display, was that just a red sheet of acetate or....?
Sorry the cards are not properly scaled. I noticed this when I tested them the other day. I still need to do a few tweaks to them. I will adjust accordingly based on pinbuoy's measurements and then repost here. Might be a few days though.
I don't know if I did set my printer's page size correctly (guess I'm using A4), but this first test didn't come quite right... Any inputs, please?
PS: The cards are gorgeous anyway!
Hey Bugsy. Did you happen to make instruction card with:
$0.50 - 1 Play, $1.00 - 3 Plays, 3 balls per game
Hold flipper for instant info
See display for Replay Value
Basically, the card for having game on route? I want to use your cards when I put this guy on location but I need one like this.
I did not make a card with pricing on it. I was mostly making these for my own game at home and thought I'd share with others since I was happy with how they turned out.
I can whip up a pricing card for you tomorrow if I have time.
Quoted from Bugsy:
Here is a link to the resized cards. They should be 3" x 5.5" now.
Anyone smarter than me know how to make this PDF into a jpg, or other image file?
I won't print cards at home anymore because the decimate the ink cartridges. I usually print them at Fred Meyer for $0.18 BUT they cant print PDFs and the PNG snaps I took of them are too small.
I printed the PDF off at UPS Store and with the best quality stuff they had it was really terrible.
Just spent this whole saturday with my tech guy working on my ID4.... We replaced the entire plastic set, changed all rubbers, cleaned the plastic ramps, changed the 3 wireform ramps for refurbished ones, polished the PF, changed some lamps.... and made a quick mech revision while/after putting it all together...
The machine now looks gorgeous and plays as smoothly and flawlessly as it never did before!
I'll take some pics tonite!
Hello guys unfortunately I've left the club but just dug out a few spares, I've put them up on eBay with the international postage please have a look if anyone's interested there's a ramp, alien bash head and a set of plastic's
Thought this was the easiest way of posting
