Quoted from EaglePin:

Well, after 12,846 balls played the post protecting my upper flipper just snapped off. It did its job well for a long time and now it’ll go have fun running around on grandpa’s farm with other old pinball parts
I’m guessing it probably took at least 2 or 3 hard hits per ball on average. Probably more. So I’m not surprised it happened eventually.
Gonna be a bit of a PITA to replace it though since the flipper mech will have to come off (no good way to unscrew the remaining piece that’s still screwed into the nut between the flipper plate and the playfield).
[quoted image]

Takes a few minutes to lower the flipper mech. You don't even have to take the flipper off. Not a big deal to do.

#10202 30 days ago

Everyone should have a set of these screw extractors, they work great:

Quoted from mbwalker:

PoMc posted his mods a couple of pages back, but he got his at Michael's (a Hobby/art/craft store). I even bought some, really nice dinosaur toys and some trees the perfect size for mods.
Edit: Found it - Post 9805

Walmart also has Dinosaur toys for $1 and they're pretty good looking.

Quoted from PoMC:

I installed the same toys you did, but the Raptor came loose after I installed the shaker. I guess I need to use more hot glue. The default shaker setting is seriously vibrating the pin when the T-Rex roars. Too much, really. I got the low temp hot glue, thinking it would be safer on the plastics. Maybe it doesn't stick as well...

I turned down the shaker the other day, I'll haven't checked it out yet.

#10205 30 days ago

Pics of the upper flipper post mod. You’ll need to remove the entire flipper mechanism to install the nut on the other side - I’d recommend a nylock nut, which I didn’t have on hand when I did this. I’m going to remove the Lexan washer now that I have the game off location.

Hey everyone,

Just joined the club this morning. No more relying on Youtube videos lol. Looking forward to eventually adding mods like the trees etc.

What is the yellow button below the start button?

You can buy a factory cover-plate for that hole and disable tournament in the settings screen. (Machines always have that cabinet cutout, but they ship from factory with the cover plate installed.

#10214 30 days ago

I'm finding the slings --> outlane to be brutal. Is this normal?
Like bullet fast, unsave-able outlane drain monster bad.

My game is setup around 7.5 pitch.

For Canada models yes. It comes that way.

#10216 30 days ago

Just a quick follow-up about the upper playfield flipper post fix. My friend and I bought our JPs together so we could combine delivery and save a little money. Well, after league last night, I mentioned doing this fix, and someone told me that my friend’s JP (after having been sold several times) developed exactly the problem I was afraid of. The loose post chewed a hole in the playfield, and it took wood putty to repair it. I’m hearing this 3rd-hand and I don’t know the extent of the damage, so take that for what it’s worth.

TL;DR: check those upper flipper posts and keep ‘em tight!

There should be an adjustment for coil strength. But it’s not uncommon for Sterns to do what you describe in their first 100-200 plays. The slings should calm down a bit over time.

#10218 30 days ago
Quoted from EaglePin:

Ha! Hadn't seen this when I posted mine. We're twins!

Nice EaglePin. I have a thin wrench that I have used to tighten that post I’m going to try to squeeze in there without removing the flipper mech. I’ll let you know how it goes. Like the orange rubbers.

#10219 30 days ago
Quoted from newpinbin:

How many plays did you have on it?

Over 2,000 last I checked.

#10220 30 days ago

I turned down sling strength for a month when I first got the game...let the rubbers/ mechs break in a bit and then return settings to factory. It’s definitely way too much power out of box.

#10221 29 days ago
Quoted from swampfire:

I think the most important mod on this game is to replace the screw-in post under the upper flipper. See the 3rd pic in the post above. If it works its way loose, it can dig out the playfield. I replaced mine with a through-hole version that bolts on from under the playfield. I also added a small Lexan washer, but I don’t know that that’s necessary. I was more worried about pooling than anything when I did the mod.

got a pic of post you used?

I got my game used and slings still brutal. Don't know about any break in time. I turned mine done quite a bit. Plays a bit more fair now.

I wanted to make my alternate translite have more of cool white background so thanks to Markharris2000 for the very simple idea of adding cool white led strips to the back haha.

Right now they are plugged into the service outlet, im just a stuck on how to get them to turn on and off with the game(using the service outlet they are just ON even when the game is off). Im guessing I can do some soldering and wire them into an existing 12v line that is getting power but im trying to think if there is a simpler way im not thinking of. I have speaker lights as well and im thinking of somehow wiring them into that, but the main brick powering those LEDS says 24v. Any ideas?

If you want to do it in a pretty easy way, try this:

There's outlet strips the have switched outlets, controlled by a single outlet. i.e. When something draws current in the controlling outlet, then it turns on the other outlets. Plug the pin into the controlling outlet and then the LED's power supply in the switched outlets.

You'd have to run the LED power wire into the pin, but no tinkering otherwise.

Plenty of other options tho. Perhaps an Alexa controlled outlet strip inside the pin, with the LED's plugged into that. Just tell Alexa to turn on the pin LED's.

Congrats to all the New Owners! I have mine 17 months, and I have been beside myself with Joy playing this game.
It beats me more often than I wish, but it pushes my adrenaline and pin play like no other pin!
Just a kick ass freaking game!

#10231 29 days ago

Hey JP crew,

I did the 3D JP speaker grills not long ago (post # 9739) and PinPeet reached out about making something to replace the dino plastics down by the outlanes. Good idea!

So I was fooling around just to get a rough idea. I started on the right side (albiet w/a T-rex stl file I had on hand, will switch it to a raptor)

Still working on the size, height, angle, what to chop off - really everything right now, especially how to mount it on the two posts that currently hold the plastic pieces. I don't think I want to have have openings on the top side for attachment, it would look gaudy. I'm thinking of just having some screw holes in the bottom and have it set on some posts

Of course, it needs to be painted to really look good.

Suggestions welcome! If anyone wants the stl files when I'm done, just PM me later when I'm done.

A big thanks for your speaker stl. I'm patiently waiting on my game still but have passed this time making bling stuff. I think these came up great. Thanks again.

You stick on the mag tape yet?

[quoted image]

The RGB controller for the speaker lights is not 24v...or a power brick. It has +12vdc going into it. The labeling on it just means it can handle +5vdc - +24vdc which would be dependent on what type of light strips it has connected to it. What the speaker lights are using is +12vdc light strips so +12vdc is what is going to the controller to power them.

I don't know if adding an additional 250+ leds to draw off of the games boards would be wise. I think getting the needed power from another source (like mbwalker suggested) and how you have them powered now, might be a better way to go.

Not yet as I don't own a spike 2 game to test fit. I do have the take ready and waiting.

Update to my original post that had a t-rex on the right as an experiment to replace the flat plastic raptor. Switched over to a raptor.

I think maybe about ~1 inch shorter on each side. Will know in about 5hrs.

Call Stern directly. If you didn't already have one, they made a beefier one shortly after the game was released since lots of folks were having issues with it coming loose. I received one under warranty last year.

#10241 27 days ago

It seems a recent second wave of JP Premiums are shipping now. Anyone know when pros might be on the way?

#10242 26 days ago

Really digging this game. It took about 10 days to reach the visitor center for the first time. Went up the right side. Stacked raptor tri-ball with the raptor paddock. Then on to the visitor center for more fun with raptors!

Anyone have to adjust the feed from the right ramp to the upper flipper? Mine bounces around, especially on faster shots. It can even bounce around the upper flipper entirely so I don't get a shot.

The simplest way would be for you to solder wires from the existing LED strip to the new LED strip that you have running around the backbox. Neg to Neg, Pos to Pos. Would take 5 mines with a soldering iron and some wiring.

If you don't have any spare wiring, I would recommend a roll of this

Now I’m depressed. I’ve had mine for over a year and I haven’t been to the VC yet. I need to play better! And avoid the T-Rex paddock.

You have to play around with the circular wireform. Loosen the attachment points and try different positioning and test with a ball. Mine needs a re-adjustment but I'm too lazy lol. It did play well for some time though after I had adjusted it. I've been moving my games around which screws up things (pitch and level).
