I was hunting and did not see a Stern Indiana Jones Club, so let's get it started.
Current mods I only have at this time are
a shaker motor
the Ark speaker panel inserts
and a LCD Sigma ColorDMD (just waiting for the color ROM, whenever that may be released)

I did the full CoinTaker LED kit and added Disney figures, custom cards, and orange superbands. The Arc multi-ball is one of the best multi-balls in pinball with trying to not lose all the balls when they cascade out of the arc. I also added a slow color changing LED to backboard lighting right above the Arc. It gives a nice glow off the top of the Arc.

Are all the GI lamps white? I still have all regular bulbs in my game. Getting time to upgrade to LEDs likely beginning of next year. Too many other things have been taking my money lately.

Hoping to make a deal on an Indy and join the club today! It's a routed machine but seems to be in great shape and play well. What do you think is a reasonable price?

huo seem to max out low 4s American $. Routed high 3s

Do you have a file of your custom apron cards cards?

Thank you very much. He quoted me at 4500 Canadian so that seems about right.

I never understood the allure of the williams indy. Maybe ive never played one that was dialed in. Ive played a few and they seemed prone to cheap drains

I picked one of these up this July! I probably overpaid a bit at 4k for a routed game. Its in good to fair shape and plays great. It seems the Sterns are hard to find due to low production maybe? I had been looking for one for some years. I also have a Williams IJ that has had a high end resto. So I am fortunate to have them both in my collection. I like the Stern game play just fine. I have it at our Church and the kids love it when the Ark dumps four balls on the playfield! Sound overs could have been a little better in my opinion but other that that its a keeper for me!

#25 1 year ago

Bought mine two years ago, less than 250 plays, one of my grandchildren s favorites.

Just added this 2 owner, HUO IJ4 with 150 plays on it. Excellent cond, almost mint. Found some great mods I highly recommend for cheap...fertility gold idol magnet for $10 bucks. Dr. Jones’ mini grail diary for $11 bucks. And, my proudest discovery I was going to keep quiet so my pin was unique...but tell me these Iron Maiden hieroglyph blades aren’t perfect for our IJ4s??

Going to be fun modding this one out!

I always thought that the ark was really missing the bars that are used to lift it. I made this out of a chopstick. I’m sure it doesn’t look exactly like the one in the movie, but I think it is a good addition to the look of the game.

Hello everybody. Can someone explain to me how to get into the endgame? What do the numbers 1 to 4 mean in each scene? For me it is so that at the temple, for example, first 1 lights. If you have hit the temple three times, the 1 and the 2 shine. If you continue playing, however, the 2 goes out and the 1 and the 4 light up. What logic is behind it? Thank you for your help

Loving this game. Going to stay in my man cave. I need a color display or something better than stock. Any recommendations? Other than that I’m LEDing it and that’s it. I love the 8 ball when arc spills over with balls. Kind of looks like snakes spewing out like in movie Only balls. Love it!

Sam Sigma ColorDMD is my recommendation. Whenever the color ROM is released, you only need to download the code to the board.

I saw they came out with color DMD today. I have the original version it’s 1.13. I think I need a larger memory? Anyone know what I need to buy to make it work and what else it entails. I’m a novice. Thanks

#37 23 days ago

ColorDMD announcement. I beta tested this over the past 2 months and it looks great on both the LED and LCD displays.

V1.3 and v1.3a both require a surface mounted flash part to be changed on the board, so soldering is required. I was able to change mine by myself. You can send the board to them to change the part. Email info@colordmd.com

Straight from the announcement.
Color ROMs will be provided for both new displays and older ColorDMD LCD displays (manufactured after 2015) with controller board revision 1.3B or later.  These boards include an upgraded larger flash memory needed to support extended ROMs.  Earlier controller boards are not supported but can be upgraded by replacing the flash memory on the board.

I haven't played mine in a while... I thought each number of scenes or modes for each movie were lit if that scene/mode was completed for a bonus - unlit wasn't completed. Sorta like a progress report for each movie.

To note: every scene doesn't have to be "completed" for wizard mode.

Getting back in the club. Adding color dmd and shaker. What looks better. Mirror blades or side art like the Iron Maiden one pictured. would also love a pan am plane to mount

#42 4 days ago

Just taken delivery of my Stern IJ. It has incandescent lamps in and the lights work well with the theme. Just wondering opinions of others who have put LEDs in. Are they too bright and cold or do they freshen the table up?

#43 4 days ago

I like side art. I'm trying to get Tilt Graphics to do a set for Indy. I'm not a fan of mirror blades.

#44 4 days ago

My SAM shaker motor for my Indy is direct from Stern.
