Oh happy day, I joined the club!
New! Dark mode!
Browsing Pinside at night? Getting tired of all the white? Switch to dark mode using the button in the top right (or CTRL-B)!
I have a 6802 in mine. My game was resetting, but that was because of low 5v. Once I replaced connectors and caps on the power supply all was good. Haven't had any freezing of the game.
Quoted from shacklersrevenge:
i was wondering if someone could check their JP cpu and tell me which ic they have on their board, 6802 or 6808?
A game like Tommy or Maverick run 6808, and there was a 6802 in this JP, which has been crashing/freezing (and is also a cheaper chip)
Can someone confirm?
Thanks in advance, James
I've been working on shopping out my JP and just finished putting on the new plastics from CPR.
Just thought I'd throw some pics up for reference for anyone considering buying the plastic set. As other have said, the blue is darker than the originals. Also, I kept the original back playfield plastic since it lit up better once I did the lighting mod. The repro plastics are definitely more opaque than the originals.
It cuts down on the illumination for sure. 2 led frosted bulbs don't brighten much. See the left rear corner for an example. I'm using 2 smd faceted leds from Comet. They seem to work best from what I tried. See the difference on the right rear corner.
I just lit up the repro dinosaurs ruled the earth plastic and it looks pretty good with warm led strip.
That subway find is great! Would be awsome if it could get reproduced.
Spencer, lighting the back area helps, but it has a bigger effect on the dmd reflection.
Installed mirror blades in my game.
Side note: I ordered them from Pinball Side Mirrors. I ordered their "extreme mirrored black," as I thought it would look good with darker mirrors. From what I can tell they sent me regular mirrored ones. PSM's customer service is lacking and they were very slow to reply to my inquiries and I never got a satisfactory answer about the wrong style being sent. Just something to consider if you decide to ordered from them.
Anyway, the blades still look pretty good in game, I think, so I'm moving on.
Here are some pics...
Quoted from hodgesm0:
What is the screen you have mounted on the playfield?
It's a mini LCD mod.
I put one in my Maverick too.
I have Titan translucent silcon rubbers on my slings. 2 3/4" inner diameter. Titan part number: CS-234ID-CL
True to the movie, this game has turned into a "spared no expense" situation for me!
Mine's installed too! I figured there would be a glut of dmds for sale after the color dmd announcement.
Love the burp! Love the colored dots. Just installed the updated color rom, very happy. Looks great, thanks for the effort on this guys!
I love how you can skip that t rex start up sequence with version 6 game code. Thanks Chad!
Did you check the fuse clips when you had the flipper board out?
I had the same problem and it was a loose clip that was the problem. Common issue with data east fuse clips.
If you use game power, even if you pull from somewhere other than the board, you may still have the issue.
You could try rebuilding your power supply, if you haven't already, to make sure the game has solid voltage level to better handle the additional strain from the mods.
Quoted from ypurchn:
Sorry guys/gals, I decided to go with the one from mezel mods. Use coupon code: excited for 10% off - came out to $18.27 shipped which is probably about as good as it's going to get. I'll report back on how it goes
No problem, I decided to go that route too.
Quoted from Texastravis:
I have seen some machines with dino stickers on the targets. Anyone here have a pic and like them
I had made my own labels for the stand up targets.
Quoted from Chalkey:
Those are great! I wish the rivets didn't interfere so bad.
Thanks. Yeah, I know the rivets kind of stink.
When I had my F-14 I did labels for the stand up targets and covered the rivets, but then then sticker can't lay flat. So, for this application, I decided to cut out the holes for the rivets.
nice, can't beat the turnaround time. You should print it in translucent yellow filament that way you can light it up.
I have some Titan silicon rubbers on my JP.
Blue on the lower flipper bats, orange on the upper flipper. Translucent sling shot rubbers, blue post rubber by the Raptor pit, orange posts by the gate.
I have found that I tend get air-balls from the springiness of the post rubbers at the raptor pit, so I'm going to be changing those posts to Cliffys premium post sleeves to try and reduce that. I got the parts, just have to make time to install.
I like them and yes, they are definitely dark. You have to replace the whole set otherwise it won't look right mixing in with original plastics, imo.
Quoted from Mr_Tantrum:
Couple of options from Comet:
Non-ghosting white or clear domed red wedge: https://www.cometpinball.com/product-p/1smd5050ng.htm
Non-ghosting red faceted wedge: https://www.cometpinball.com/product-p/2smd3528-ng.htm
Faceted with a red bulb condom looks great.
Curious, why are you guys cutting the tabs off of the eject hole inserts? When I replaced mine, I left the tabs and have never had an issue with the T-Rex eating the ball or the ball rolling out of the hole.
