#21551 51 days ago
Quoted from sllerts:

Well, I had it at 6.5, but the auto launcher was regularly not able to make the helipad 180 ramp, and missed shots to the helipad were going SDTM instead of hitting the rubber and bouncing to the left flipper, so I lowered the incline a bit, which has made the game much more fun to play. I can live with gently nudging the jeep to get it to come down vs. the problems I was having previously at 6.5.

Do you have it at 6.0 now?

#21552 51 days ago

what does hitting the set trap targets do when they are blinking blue but capture is not lit? is kinda an auto trap when trap is ready?

#21553 51 days ago
Quoted from BrokenChair:

Shoot the flashing blue targets to light the Supply Drop target for a mystery award. If Super Supply Drop is lit, that award takes priority. Collecting either type of Supply Drop lights the “Light 2x Scoring” standup to enable double scoring for 45 seconds.

(from the tilt forum JP rule sheet)

Quoted from 95er:

I think it's between 6 and 6.5 at this point.

Isn’t it super floaty for you that shallow?

#21557 49 days ago
Quoted from matt68061:

Not at all. Feels the same as before but now everything is working correctly.

#21558 49 days ago
Quoted from sllerts:

Well, as a followup, I replaced the bearings with the F17-13M recommended previously. Even before I installed, just holding the Amazon bearings in my fingers, I could feel the balls rolling. With the Stern bearings, they were not spinning between my fingers, so the replacement was definitely needed. I did not add any lubricant.
My set screw was in extremely (scarily) tight, but using a flipper spacer, I was able to tighten it again with a small space between the bushing and the metal opto blocker, so I didn't need to do any grinding even though there does seem to be a slight indent on the rod. The opto blocker is *very* close to the bottom of the opto switches, but it does appear to clear them.
Performance-wise, the truck is now spinning quite well as promised! It still does seem to get slightly hung up when the Newton ball happens to end up perfectly vertically, but a little nudge brings it back down.
Thanks for all the help everybody!

More follow up. After a short time playing, the truck was having issues again. It turned out that the Newton ball was dragging on the playfield even though I had the lock nut tightened as much as it will go. To fix I added an extra rubber on the Newton ball and replaced the lock nut in the process. Between this and the new bearings, now it’s spinning perfectly!

This was poetic.

When my trex catches the balls and it starts to swing his head if often looses the ball too fast (not holding untill trex trex multiball intro is done /not dropping it into the ramp in a trex encouter erc..)

Is this a possible cable break for the magnet?
Game has 65 games so quite new.

I tested the magnet in coil test and in every position i put the trex the coil test worked.
It always catches the ball.

Anythinh else i should or could check?

#21561 48 days ago
Quoted from DavidPinballWizz:

Best guess is the coil wire is loose or half broken but it seems you tested that. Another way to test it is connect a meter at the other end of the magnet wires. You should see some coil resistance like 20 ohms for example, and then move the head around and knock on it, etc and see if the resistance ever changes. (I have not messed with the magnet coil wires before so I'm not sure if there is a good place to connect to them but take a look and make sure the connector is tight also.)

Make sure the jaw is closing when it should. Check out post #9090.

Hi everyone - I made a new mod for JP that I hope you'll consider... I couldn't read the 4 billboard signs, so I made new ones. Here is 1 photo of the mod and a link to the topic I created so as to not clutter up this club.

I can't seem any relevant info in post 9090 but the jaw is binding inside the molding. While playing with it I had it going a bit better but it still stucks. The correct catch and hold and swing behaviour was then done by the machine.

Do i remove some of the interior molding or how have other people solved this?

#21566 45 days ago

If you are interested in the mods I created for this fantastic pinball machine, you can purchase them by contacting me via the website www.dystopicpinball.com

When I reinstalled mine the T Rex originally looked a bit 'derpy' because his jaw wouldn't close fully and it looked like his tongue was sticking out. The fix for me was holding the jaw away from the rest of the head while tightening the small black screws on the bottom. The screw hole sizes allow for a bit of play in the alignment.

I think why WiFi adapter might be bad. The machine keeps saying it’s offline. I tried resetting the USB adapter and it seems to connect momentarily to my network but then shows the network with a /0 after. If I replace the little star tech adapter, does it need to be a 2.4Ghz one or will a 5Ghz work as well? Or do I need a specific one?

Update: replaced adapter and all is good now

In the insider connected thread, they list the handful of wi-fi adapters that will work.

You should be able to use any usb adapter that has the RTL8188CUS chipset.

Finally getting in the club. Made a deal with someone today and should have it this week.

I know there are like 9000 mods out for this game but I am having a hard time figuring out which ones are worthy. Any input you owners care to share is welcome.

FYI game has art blades shaker and amber shooter rod. I will do speaker lights as well. Will do a topper of some kind but not sure which one. Wife wants the Stern one but I don’t think it’s worth it. Of course I will probably get out voted like usual.

Some of the signs seem cool and there is a raptor pit mod and many more. Too many to even think about honestly.

#21574 34 days ago

Our behind the raptor stuck ball blocker plastic is a nice thing to have for many....we offer some other things as well.

You have the three big ones already, so the rest is seasoned to taste. That said, I think there is a growing population that would also include HD glass as a must have for a machine like this.

Agreed I use Voodoo or Invisi on all my games.

Thanks that's kind of the feedback I am looking for i.e. got X mod and like or got X mod and didn't. Of course I know some folks don't want to admit they didn't like a certain mod they spent money on and I get that.

BTW has anyone done anything to liven up the Stern topper. The wife is basically said that is the one she wants (I won't pay retail for it have to find a used one for sure) but it would be nice if there was something that could be done to it to make it a little better.

You didnt mention shacker....if you dont have it its a must on this game

You didn't mention if it was the Pro or Prem. If it's the premium then Lior's TREX skin is pretty awesome. Makes it look so much better/real/mean.

Hd glass. Upgrade the backbox speakers (see diy audio thread, but Kicker or Alpine 4” or 5.25” are great), consider an external sub, great on this pin. Tilttopper’s topper is better than Sterns and much less $. Those are the kinds of mods that add to the experience. I wouldn’t tacky up the playfield with a bunch of toys but that’s me.

Yeah sorry its a Premium. And yes his t-rex is great but unobtanium and I don't want to pay the second hand market prices for it. Its nice but not thousands of dollars nice IMHO. Same for his LD bar button surround. I dig it but it ain't cheap.

I typically do upgraded speakers but a good reminder. Yeah tilt's topper is cheaper there are few things a like better about and some I don't. We are topper people so I'll be getting something for it, just wish there was something more/better but I know many feel that way.

Didn't realize the TRex skin was no longer available. I've had mny JP since 2019 and bought mods over time.

BTW I've owned both toppers (Tilt and Stern). Tilt looks nice but does nothing really. Stern looks ok in person actually and does have nice light shows. I prefer Stern's just for the interactivity.

Quoted from GCS2000:

You'll want to upgrade to latest movie code. You can get 1.12 from POMC or 1.13 from Dystrophic. Both are considered 'current' since very little diffeence between the two.

Quoted from Markharris2000:You'll want to upgrade to latest movie code. You can get 1.12 from POMC or 1.13 from Dystrophic. Both are considered 'current' since very little diffeence between the two.

I believe it has current code but will check once I get the game home on Wednesday.

I saw your comment in the other thread about using it and IC. I am a tad confused on the process should I not put JP on the network and use IC since I will be running movie code?

I would think code for JP would be done and not revisited by Stern so it may not matter.

Totally with you on the Stern topper-I am not paying over $500 for it. I have seen 2 used ones that I almost got locally but I was just a tad slow.

I have IC with movie code, works great just make sure you turn off auto update.

#21589 34 days ago

Behold my JP Gate mod! personally I think it fits nicely but is nothing special if you check out other crazy good modders.
My mod is simple. Has no lights, no moving parts. Just a hand painted Gate.
It does not obstruct the view of the ball path on the ramp. I like that.

If you want it I could make it!
$75+shipping
$100 painted.

Pinwoofer is a must, Raptors travel in pairs or more, get a real skeeter in amber from Super Skill Shots and this gated plate is second to none, custom paint your Raptor tower, I like the park truck where the journey begins, I have the TRex trying to chomp the 18 jeep and 3D slings to polish it off!

No it’s not. I had pinwoofer and only get more static irritating noises. So for me never pinwoofer again.

Not planning on pinwoofer. Upgrading the speakers yes but I do that on all my games.

#21596 33 days ago

I’m having great results with it. I know it can be done a little cheaper, but taking the LE speakers out and throwing them in a premium machine was a kill 2 birds situation. I had a little static at first but he sent me a part (line trimmer?) and that cleared it up. What a game though. Clearly my #1 pin. Very challenging to get deep in any given game.

Good use of the equalizer. Which is now also possible on jjp games.

#21599 33 days ago

Does anyone know if the speaker system in the 30th is an upgrade over the LE? The present it as an upgrade in the 30th description, but not the LE. Maybe that's a difference besides the art?

#21600 33 days ago
Quoted from ZoraShinoda:

Just got to victory laps on visitor center, completed museum mayhem then freaking drained on secure control room. New GC and closest I ever got to escape nublar and when dinosaurs ruled the world. Captured Trex and spinosaurus along the way.
So much fun and frustrating at the same time. That's why this game has been in my collection for 3 years and it's going nowhere.[quoted image]

How long of a game was that?
