Quoted from joseph5185:

You may want to consider felting the exposed wood where that lockbar is. That guy that did the BP removal does this to all his games and I think it looks great and makes for the glass sliding much easier.
Just a thought!
Hope you're playing soon!! or already playing...

Oooh! Do you have a picture of this?

Quoted from joseph5185:

Kinda. I can provide a still image from the video.
I’ll link the video and note the time he talks about it.
I’ll provide a link for what I chose as well.
Just not home atm.

Thanks, look forward to it

Quoted from mountaingamer:

Your prob looking at 60 days for the cliffys zaphX - you ought to clean and wax the Tortuga then throw some Mylar down to prevent further wear... wax makes the new Mylar pretty easy to come off when you get the cliffys.

Mylar won't hurt, but there's no guarantee it'll prevent further wear. If it did, there wouldn't be cliffys for new games- we'd just drop mylar and call it a day.

As for myself, I pulled the Tortuga front mylar and cut a new piece to fit and left the sling mylar where it was. But I doubt there'd have been a major problem had I left it on a home use game. I just wanted to give it the purest fit reasonable possible

Quoted from zaphX:

Well there are two targets for loading the cannon. LOAD and CANNON (over on the right.)
I'm betting there is a broken wire on the LOAD target.

If one is down the other will still work to open the cannon door. Check and see if the gate is catching on the rubber of the ship.

Ok so I've started to have irregular performance with the black pearl cannon gate. It seems as though the pictured spring attached to this hook thingy needs to be dead center. If the spring slides/pivots to the right during play the gate won't open all the way. Suggestions to stabilize this spring?

Quoted from vireland:

Did you go into switch test mode and smack around on the playfield making sure some lower playfield switch wasn't triggering from vibration? If it is, that gate won't open or will open and close.

No, but pretty sure it's not that. When this spring is misaligned it still opens and stays open just not all the way.

If I manually move this little spring back center performance goes back to 100 percent and gate will fully open and I don't notice any lower playfield triggered glitches.

If it slides over to the right edge of this plastic with hole or whatever it is that's it's attached to, the gate doesn't open fully (but stays open as it should).

Quoted from GnarLee:

I had this same problem new out of the box. In shipping it must have misaligned a tad. If I remember right It was a 2-3 screws to get the decking off. Then maybe 2 screws to loosen coil and pivot it back to center. Tighten screws back ( on mine I think I was able to just pivot it and not loosen the screws). manually move the gate up and down to make sure the bar that spring attaches to doesnt hit and you will be golden.

Ended up just making coil bracket adjustment from service position in the back, you don't need to take anything off. Thanks!

Anyone develop issues with the Tortuga VUK arm's rubber tip developing wear? Mine was one hundred percent same kickout for first couple months of ownership. Now, it seems to spray the ball all over the place. I inspected closely and it seems to have deformed. I have the gen 2 bracket.

Quoted from Lancelin2k14:

Just unboxed a brand new CE born 28th December. All good (washers preinstalled on the playfield) except the screen keeps getting little lines over the text as though there is some sort of interference. I've checked all the connections in to the monitor, unplugged and replugged the dvi and power cables but no luck. It happens during boot, during doing the 0.99 update and during the game etc. Anyone had this issue before? Any ideas on what I can try next? It's not a major issue but is annoying the crap out of me.

Those factory metal washers aren't a good idea and are known to cause ripples. Switch them out to the service pack ones when you have a chance.
