I usually change lights with the game on and sometimes a fuse can go with minor contact of wires or switches and another thing that can happen is a wire breaks off contact which can screw up everything in the chain, if it's not a fuse or detached wire then you shorted out something on the board and will need to get technician out to fix it.

#202 4 years ago
Quoted from Grinder901:

Thanks buds, I am such a noob. I got a guy coming over to help check the fuses. I'll check the coin door wires when I get home as well.

Sometimes LEDs make pins do strange things. The led by the shooter lane could be causing issues with the optos in the ball trough. Try pulling out some of the LEDs you put in.

#203 4 years ago

Guys the pinsider I bought my IM from, mark biz, helped me out and sure enough, I blew a fuse. F10 to be exact. I went out and got a new one and BAM! I am back in action!

It turned your Iron Man I to Lethal Weapon?

I put a red LED in the socket under the apron (by the shooter lane) and my trough opto quit working the game thru a code.. Pulled it out and put an orange one in and it worked fine.

#206 4 years ago

^^^^^^
Weird yeah I put a red one in mine too. I'd like to keep it in there. New fuse, so far so good.

A while ago I saw a picture of someone's IM that had some sort of led trim around the ramps. I was toying with the idea of using yellow on one ramp and red on the other. Does anyone remember this mod? Any recommendations on what to use? I know some/most might think its over the top or too ostentatious but I'd like to see how it looked anyway.

#207 4 years ago

Haha nice!

Martin Riggs: I don't make things complicated. That's the way they get, all by themselves.

#208 4 years ago

So I've got a ton of Iron Man swag in my Iron Man toy/arcade room. I came across this:

image-342.jpg

And so I thought I could fill this dead space in the back. It's hardly seen if pressed all the way against the wall but what do y'all think? Cool? Not needed?

image-607.jpg image-620.jpg
#209 4 years ago

Your enthusiasm does this hobby proud. Totally unnecessary to put that on the back....so I say go for it!

#210 4 years ago

Haha doing the unnecessary is what I do best!!

#211 4 years ago

Seems crazy but out of all the games played, only 3 have been longer than 8 minutes. Brutal.

#212 4 years ago

Anyone ever put red ac/dc premium side rails and lockdown bar on Iron man? Does Stern sell the red powder coated rails and LD bar?

#213 4 years ago
Quoted from Concretehardt:

That particular red wouldn't look very good on IM in my opinion.

#214 4 years ago

My shaker is causing something to rattle pretty bad, I can't quite pinpoint where it's comming from. I assume its the translite or the playfield glass but when I put my hand on either it doesn't stop the rattling.

Ps. ive gotten to Jerico twice and both times I immiediatly choked and lost the ball
I did post my best score ever last night 42million (wimpy compared to Rob T's 200 million but still hard fought)

I think you meant to say 251 million.

Keep at it.

Since I put up that score, my next best score has been about half of that one. Makes me wonder if I will ever be able to beat it.

#216 4 years ago

So I want to change my DMD to red. How hard is it to do? I need some kind of red filter right? What do those run?

$16.00 at Pinbits. Great bang for the buck.

Thank you sir I'm headed there now. Easy to install?

#219 4 years ago

Ah shit. It's sold out!

#220 4 years ago
Quoted from Grinder901:

Ah shit. It's sold out!

you could go to a sign shop and get some scrap red acrylic big enough and cut your own for free - just make sure it has the protective paper still on it.

It does make a difference

#221 4 years ago

Just put in the red filter for my DMD. Wow what a difference!!! Love it!! I'm gonna go do my SST that I have for sale next.

Question... I have stock lighting in my IM any one have a video of the cointaker set up installed... Is it worth going to LED's in this game?

#223 4 years ago
Quoted from Concretehardt:

Yes, but I think that a subdued look is a lot better than the blinding look that a lot of the LED kits give out. When I got mine, it had a standard kit in it and I thought it looked like a bug zapper. After a lot of replacing for lower power LEDs, I think it looks great now.

#224 4 years ago

I see I am not the only one debating on getting the Cointaker IM led kit that is up for sale.

#225 4 years ago

Just installed my Whiplash Mod from Pinball Decals , how bright are these whips supposed to be ?
Not sure whats going on with this one but I can hardly see any flash of light at ?
Could someone post a short clip please .

#226 4 years ago

Guess what arrived Saturday and is about to get installed....

Why can't we post videos as easily as we can post images?

I agree completely.

I have NoFlix Plus LEDs in my IM for this very reason. Very little strobing, and not at all blinding under the inserts. I do have my GI cranked up pretty bright though.

If I had it to do over again, I'd probably just use cheaper LEDs and use the OCD board.

To answer Concrete's question: I think IM looks a ton better with LEDs.

Is this the same as Hooked's? If not, anyone seen both and have an opinion which is better.

Finally put up a 100M score.

Holy shit, I'll never get a score that high!! Hey is your DMD colored? Looks like its yellow lettering outlined in red in the picture.

Pinball life sells Hooked's modded figures I believe.

Quoted from Grinder901:

Yeah, it's a color DMD. Honestly, I don't know if I'd recommend it for this title just yet, but I didn't want to spare any expense with this IM. Almost done with all of my mods. Service rails and mirror blades next weekend and I'll be just about done. Can't help but put a few games in during the upgrade process though.

#234 4 years ago

Well, my IM is out of commission for awhile, since I am taking parts in for powder coating, including the coin door.

It's going to suck not being able to play for awhile, but I know it will be worth it..

What did the color DMD run you? Any way you could post some more images or video of the DMD during game play? I don't plan on sparing any expense with mine as well. Powder coating is on my list as well.

Don't install those yet if you havn't powder coat your armor. Send the service rails out along with your trim parts and have them all powder-coated at the same time. You can thank me later.

#237 4 years ago

Ok. Thanks for the great advice!

Question for anyone:

Why would I want to disable the two orbit posts? It's an option under the settings menu. Is it purely to speed the game up even more?

#238 4 years ago

I would just disable the outer post. The other one, in my opinion, actually helps maintain ball control (monger start, Jerico start, etc)

#239 4 years ago

Well, my motor came today for Iron Monger and he's a working

I have never really had a chance to sit down with this game, but did tonight. After about 10 or so games, I got to Jericho, nailed every shot and the center lit for 50 million- I instantly nailed it! but it came back quick and did a SDTM..but I got the points! final score was 189 million

Good job. Finishing Jericho on factory is very difficult.

Quoted from MeNaCeFiRe:

I actually disabled the inner post.. If you start double scroing before Do or Die or Jericho the timer will continue to count down as you wait for the post to release the ball. Ive had 2x scoring time out a couple times while waiting for the ball. Lyman needs to fix this so it atleast pauses the timer while the post is up.

#242 4 years ago

So now I want to buy a pinnovator headphone kit. But they have three no scratch that four! damn versions. Here is what my coin door looks like:

image-210.jpg

Anyone have any idea which version to buy? I'm ready to hit the purchase button tonight.

#243 4 years ago

Hey grinder who sells the IM shooter rods?

#244 4 years ago

I'm gonna PM you Concrete.

#245 4 years ago

I put a pinnovators kit in mine. I bought the one with the up down push button volumes on the outside, I'm pleased.

Do all Iron Man coin doors look like mine?

Which version did you choose bud? There are like four options. I'd love the one with easy volume control.

#247 4 years ago

im not sure which one i chose, but my coin door is like yours. l think i bought the premo one,

#248 4 years ago
Quoted from shacklersrevenge:

Did you pay $99 or $120?

#249 4 years ago

i believe it is pinpac2mac. l highly recommend it, for the external volume alone.

#250 4 years ago

l paid $120, real easy to install too...l put mine at the bottom of the door.

Note: just checked my texts cause im friends with the guy who runs pinnovators. lt is the pinpac2mac.
