Quoted from swampfire:

I think it’s okay to express an opinion, especially when someone says their mod is “a must”. For some reason everyone thinks they can make a jungle-themed pin look better by adding more green lighting. The Congo thread is full of pics like that. I think it looks 100% wrong - it changes all the colors on the game, and it’s an insult to the artist. Doesn’t mean I wouldn’t enjoy having a beer with the guy who posted it.
Conversely, I’m sure that some people don’t like my T-Rex mod, and that’s fine. What are we here for if not to share mods and opinions? I’m just glad there’s another thread for people to post their LE numbers.

Agreed 100%. Blind love fests are not necessary. Be respectful always, but it’s ok to have an opinion.

#1652 23 days ago

Ok so after looking at it, I have to admit that is pretty bad, the green lighting. It's a Lermods backboard LED strip (not trying to say it's a bad product). It certainly didn't look like this playing it, compared to the picture. I'll have to reassess when I'm playing later. Well hey if anything I'm part of another club now, the rainbow puke club

#1653 23 days ago

I may have missed this somewhere buried in this thread. Has anyone found a good alternatives T-rex head to replace the standard one on the pro? How easy was it to fit and are their pictures?

I will say that I haven’t found a mounting solution yet that I’m happy with. It sags and his feet get in the way of the ball. I hope to come up with something better next weekend.

Gotta rush the mods with impatience and misaligned products. Such is the way.

Do you know the brand or make of the T-rex you're using? Found a roaring biting one on Ebay that looks similar

I am waiting on game to test one version from Ebay that is motorized/lights, MezelMods is working on one as well.
I hear there are a few others in development.

I think the post under the upper flipper is going to require some good groupthink. Here’s a pic from the other thread, hopefully the OP doesn’t mind me stealing it. When this post works its way loose, it’s a danger to the playfield. That’s my main concern, so mods that keep it tight are the most urgent, whether it’s Loktite or securing a longer post with a nut on the other side.

I’m also considering a mod that would take all of the pressure off of the clearcoat. My rough idea is:

1. Get a few small washers, smaller than the one that’s currently under the post
2. Use a brad-point drill bit slightly larger than these new washers to cut a hole through the clear and art.
3. Install 1-3 of the small washers, then the larger washer, then the post.
4. Tighten this stack using your preferred method (Loktite or through-hole)

The goal here is that the factory washer doesn’t contact the clearcoat at all, but instead rides about 1mm above it.

Please talk me out of this if it’s a bad idea.

But the game only had reportedly 27 plays. No indication the post was loose.

You may have a good idea but it's a damn shame you have to consider any of this at all. What about all the other posts?
This post is probably the canary in the coal mine

#1662 23 days ago
Quoted from Manic:

See, I don’t think so. This post is more vulnerable because it’s out in the open, getting smacked from all sides. It’s closer to the flippers than any other post. Mine came loose after about 50 plays. It’s the only post I’m really concerned about.

#1663 23 days ago
Quoted from jeep-mustang:

I use to build classic cars, at every show you get some ding-dong who would walk up and say “you should have, blah, blah , blah, something different” rather then admiring the cool car you built.
If they don’t like it fine, but find the things you do like, say something nice, or keep your mouth shut.

It's the new "liquid courage" of being behind a keyboard on the internet.

I can absolutely relate to your car analogy. I swapped the PRV engine out of my DeLorean with a turbo-charged VR6 engine and swapped the automatic transmission with a 5-speed manual transmission. Bumped the power from 95 WHP to 240 WHP with only 5 lbs of boost. I can't imagine what I could do at 15 lbs or so.

At every cruise in I go to, people lose their shit. Car guys that know how underpowered the DeLorean originally was vs. what it has now love it, and most know I could go to 400 BHP before really needing to do some reinforcing of internal engine components or additional cooling. People are very respectful, show polite praise and adulation, and if they don't like it they at least have the common courtesy to not be an asshole to me (9 times out of 10).

Put it on the internet, and some dumb fucking idiot will tell me how the VR6 sucks or I should have put an LSX in it (X = denoting there are at least 4 other LS DeLorean swaps already out there) or I should have used a completely different motor or turbo or intake system or exhaust or etc. These are the same fuckers that don't even know how or could not even begin to attempt what's been done, yet they armchair QB/criticize an effort that took well over 1000 hours of garage work to complete.

Everyone's a tough guy on the internet. But I promise this: I'll never say anything here I won't say to someone's face.

I just put a rubber washer under the post washer and my very small chip hasn't increased in size at all. The one in that picture is quite large.

#1665 22 days ago
Quoted from Hazoff:

I like the rubber washer idea. The larger metal washer gives a lot of lateral support. I'm worried that a smaller diameter washer underneath would cause the post to tilt as it gets hit -- making the hole larger and larger and eventually causing more damage. My guess is a slightly oversized metal washer with an equal sized rubber washer would make it much more rigid and would protect the pf.

#1666 22 days ago

Good advice, guys. I think you’re right, a smaller base under that post would eventually cause problems. BTW, since I have the LE Pro (art under the posts), I’ve added washers under the upper slingshot posts (the clear cylinders). Probably not needed, but I’m a little paranoid. Fingers crossed, I’m at about 250 games with no pooling.

#1667 22 days ago

Settings I changed...
Ball trough launch as low as possible
Auto launch up 5 power
Left flipper down 5 power
Top right flipper down 5 power
Also slingshots down to 25 power
Just made certain things work better for me.

#1668 22 days ago

For those who say the ball isn't plunging up the scoop consistently... I played a pro today and the brass sleeve on the plunger rod felt very strange to me. There is a slight gap that was causing the rod to not plunge well if it wasn't completely straight. It would slightly bind on the brass, absorbing a lot of power. A tighter tolerance on that sleeve might solve the problem, but a bit of good penetrating oil in the brass would also let it glide better and feed the scoop more reliably. Something to think about.

Is there a good rule sheet for this game,I am sure it is somewhere but I cant find Anything about how to collect the fossils.

Anyone figure out a solution to the auto-plunge not making it up the helipad ramp every time? Increasing and decreasing the power hasn't made it go away for me. Game is leveled correctly. Manual plunge seems to work every time if you give it a hard pull. Auto-plunge is only about 75% of the time.

Definitely check the alignment of the autoplunge fork. If it’s not dead center on the ball it can make a big difference in power.

How does one go about aligning the fork? I've noticed on mine the right finger touches the ball, the left does not by a smidge. I'm assuming this is an alignment issue?

#1676 21 days ago

pardon if this has already been mentioned anywhere, I didn't see anything with a quick search, but has anyone else had their newton ball come off? the one that's screwed into the playfield?

Weird. Consider using locktite when you put it back.

Pretty sure super jackpots in multiball award fossils

#1679 21 days ago
Quoted from Durzel:

How did Bally Williams manage to "diamond plate" (aka clearcoat) playfields with art under starposts back in the 90s without these issues?

toxic chemicals. the 80s and 90s where a blast man. We all picked a terrible time to give up sniffing glue.

I'd personally recommend Tilt Forums' rule sheet: http://tiltforums.com/t/stern-jurassic-park-rulesheet-wip/5644/181

You get Fossils by completing various modes and multiballs. They're worth points in bonus, but otherwise they're not fully implemented in the rules.

#1681 21 days ago

Set up my JP on Friday. By Saturday with about 50 plays on it, the post by the upper flipper was already loose. Tightened it up again, and with under 100 total plays it was loose again. Going to try loctite on it tonight.

Mine was the same way. Stern sent me some loctite 290 I believe and it’s been good ever since.

#1683 21 days ago
Quoted from swampfire:

I did originally. It was slightly off, and I was able to bend it (nothing extreme) enough to be flush with the ball on both sides. That didn't fix the issue.

I have noticed the the fork is very "jiggly" when touched. I don't remember if it's supposed to be that way, and I don't have another Stern to examine.

#1684 21 days ago

My BM66 is the same. It looks square on the ball but is a little loose even after tightening screws. One out of every three auto plunges go a third of the way up the shooter lane. I’m interested in how you fare.

I haven't noticed other CC'ed products (like cars for instance) refusing to set or harden... and then flaking off.

You been throwing pinball at those cars? I bet is causes some issues with the finish.

Most of these issues of posts sinking into soft clear and then flaking off came right out of the box. No "throwing pinballs" needed.

Driving on the freeway at speeds around 80mph should cause the clear to chip when rocks and other debris hit the front...I would think

Not disagreeing on your point, just the example, road pebbles arent usually on par with a 1" metal sphere. Older cars were made of tougher stuff back then as well in my opinion. Like most products. Things just arent built to last anymore. That's the world. Not saying I like it.

#1690 20 days ago

I have been messing with a bunch of ideas for a topper.

I have a ton of fossils, crinoids, dino bone and skin, giant Trilobites, plates...
But most are too heavy or delicate. so I picked this resin cast instead.

Im thinking of shadow boxing and back lighting....it needs more maybe....
What do you think?

When game arrives, Ill throw up more pics...

Got my LE in today and everything looks great and is working great. Appears to have the new playfield and no signs of pooling, fingers crossed. Such a blast to play even tho I have no clue what I'm doing yet!

Will I get my apology? Everything I said was true. You might not like what I say but the truth can sometimes hurt, the pro does well as a test model and because of it we have perfect le's and will have perfect premiums. My buddy got his le and its perfect and I am hearing the same from others to. Thank you pro model for doing your job! And apology accepted!
