Long time pinballer, new IM owner.
I purchased a tastefully modded HUO IM last fall and had it delivered to my son's house out east. I visited him this past weekend and was able to see my game in person for the first time and have a few questions.
1. It came with yellow rubber rings which, from what I surmise, are probably Titan rings. One of the slingshot rings is almost split at the post right above the flipper and the other sling ring is wearing. Can someone tell me the ring diameter for the slingshots and I'll order some replacements.
2. It has the nice aftermarket pop caps. Not sure if they are from Hooked on Pinball or from Pinball Decals. Either way, the LED insert base is so tall it jams the lamp socket/wires into the top center of the pop bumper skirt causing the pop skirt to skew. This makes some hits strong and some weak depending on the direction the ball approaches the pop bumper. Has anyone else had this problem and then resolved it and, if so, how did you resolve it. UPDATE - Robert at HoP got back to me already and the solution is one of their slim LED pop inserts that sits 4 or 5mm shorter.
3. The skill shot post does not raise on my game. It works fine in test mode. I went through the settings and could not find anything where this could be turned on or off. Before I reload the code I figured I would ask if there is a setting I'm missing.
Other than these issues the game is great. It had been on my want list for some time and is the only Stern pinball I have ever purchased or have been compelled to purchase. And I'm no stranger to DMD games. I'm glad to have finally gotten one.
