no deadworld mod installed (yet)
having a hard time aligning the crane to pick up the ball. got into the menu and found the adjustment for the crane but when it says to align it with the ring I can't figure it out. i found the planet adjustment and stopped it with the crane arm down where it should pick up the ball but when I go try it again it goes back to lowering to the ring about half way between the ball slots. tried moving the ring by hand but it wont budge and I dont want to break it. advice appreciated!

I'm having this problem at the moment myself. My friend and I are gonna try and solve the problem tomorrow. It seems like there is a lot of trouble shooting involved with the crane/deadworld.

Done. Piece of cake. Follow the directions above. My problem was that there are slotted adjustment holes to mount the Orange ring to and there were regular holes. They need to be in the slotted ones.

In the slotted ones yes. But on mine even that wasn't enough adjustment. It was still off by a little. I had to loosen the large nut that holds the metal three arm pedestal in place and move it a tad. It wont move far because it has a slotted index on it, but it was enough.

enough is enough right o-din?

It is now! Another thing I had to do was slightly bend the metal ball guide on the inlet ramp towards the ring to keep any balls from falling off. With the deadworld mod, the inlet ramp optos and outlet optos must sense one ball in for every ball out of the planet ring or things go haywire. It has worked perfect ever since. Except that one time I knocked a ball off the planet with one I was shooting.

ive got a few optos inbound. trough 4 is bad. once I get that in I will install the mod and hope it works. If not I'll be going through the 47 million dead world posts here again

My friend and I got my crane working last night (have dead world mod), had to adjust the interrupter disk below the play field and also the middle shaft on the crane that adjusts the up and down movement. One thing that I found out though was if it it works 3 times in a row in test mode you should be fine for game play. What was happening during the unload globe test was that the crane took off the first 3 balls in a row just fine, but it wouldn't pick up a 4th ball, so after hours of fiddling my friend and I tried playing a regular game and the multiball worked fine after multiple games. Pretty amped that its working again. However - now my led lights on my crane mod aren't working....damn, if anyone knows how I should go about fixing the lights let a brotha know!

Did all you guys get your DW/crane working correctly? How does the crane know when to drop the ball? Mine doesn't drop it until on the way back and it sometimes misses.
