Quoted from Green-Machine:

Nothing seems to be written in stone on a delivery date to distos. I was told on three occasion my build/delivery date had changed before finally getting my Prem

Agreed. Original date was Feb before it being pushed to April.

Yeah it sucks but hang in there, you’ll get it eventually I was about to flip my lid waiting!

#3953 9 months ago
Quoted from MrMikeman:

It’s a complex mode. I am glad I have seen how it works so when I get there through the game I don’t waste the opportunity!
To each his own though!

I hear you, it's very tempting...It's just my OCD shining.

#3954 9 months ago

Is it true that another wizard mode called "When Dinsoaurs Ruled the Earth" or something is coming to the game?

#3955 9 months ago
Quoted from fooflighter:

I can't play that until I get to it through the game... Just my own personal discovery quest, so that's not a factor in a roll back for me

I'm glad I'm not alone

#3956 9 months ago
Quoted from PanzerFreak:

Is it true that another wizard mode called "When Dinsoaurs Ruled the Earth" or something is coming to the game?

Yes. I believe there may be two more additions coming. One for getting all fossils and one for beating all the "mini" wizard modes. For some reason I was thinking "When Dinosaurs Ruled the Earth" was the one for all fossils collected. I quote "mini" as if another is added for beating (not just playing) all the other ones then that would be the WIZARD mode.

#3957 9 months ago

I’m in for a Premium. Paid in full and was told shipping this month. Probably last week of February... will be very disappointed to hear otherwise

Anyone hear for certain that their premium is being made and shipped in February?

#3958 9 months ago

Here is what I was told (as was also told Feb for my delivery). The batch of prem for Feb mainly went overseas and the remaining orders went to distributors with orders in. So, if your distr was one of the ones to get some of that Feb batch then it's possible. For the rest of us, April seems to be the date now. Only way for you to know is to call your distributor to see if they are getting a batch in right now. If they aren't getting it now then chances are high your order is pushed to April as well.

Anyone (or a dist) with better info feel free to say I'm wrong if you know different. This is what I've just pieced together from my conversation with Stern and the Dist I have spoken with recently.

What distro are you using? What I am hearing from you is Exactly what I heard back when I got my Prem back in fall

My JP2 is coming through the Stern Rewards Program, which most likely gets lower priority as it is but I did talk to a couple other major Distributors and were told April from them as well. I had thought about keeping my rewards purchase for later in the year and just CLing that order and going the normal route for JP2 thus the calls to others after having my order placed.

Gotcha

#3962 9 months ago
Quoted from WJxxxx:

And lose Nubar?

If you backtrack to 0.97 you'll lose Nublar if you get to the end, not just from flipper code.

How pissed would you be if you got to where it should be on 0.97 code?

PS. I've got there genuinely, once - not only do you need to get to Visitor Centre, but you also need all 4 Trex modes to get to and play Museum Mayhem, as well as completing 3 control room modes to get to Secure Control room. Then you can attempt to play Escape Nublar.
I'd already played it from the flipper codes, and was confident I knew what I was doing when I got there.
The fact that it's not something I'm going to be getting to every other game I want it there and coded when I do get there.

#3963 9 months ago

Where can I find the directions to clean/lube the Jeep ball? Mine is getting sticky. Someone explained it, but I've been unable to locate it on the thread. Should make it a key post.

#3966 9 months ago
Quoted from Gotfrogs:

I love how Stern keeps releasing new code for this game but I also hate taking off the backglass to complete the update. I am always scared that I might drop or break it. To prevent having to take it off for an update, I just installed a USB extension cable that will allow me to complete an update without removing the backglass. Here is the 90 degree USB cable that I used. I think it is a great upgrade/insurance for $8
amazon.com link »[quoted image][quoted image][quoted image]

Someone posted a cool usb option up front on the front where you would put a vol mod and it was a nicely done....looked great. No more taking off the back glass. I also hate taking that off on my LE . My spot is taken with a vol mod but if not I would do it in a heart beat.

#3967 9 months ago

Just updated my pro to .98 today and the new escape nublar challenge is fun!

Only complaint with the update is now I have a constant scratchy noise coming from the speakers that wasn’t present before. Anyone else notice this?

I think this is just one of those things I can't get my head around. Why not run a $7 USB extension cable from the backbox, down through the cabinet (along with the coin door wire harness) to the back of the coin door? Would a front USB port add to the visual appeal of the game? I can see it being more convenient up on the back of the coin door, but putting it on the outside of the cabinet.....I just don't get.

It’s looked clean and like it was meant to be there. Al was hidden as it was just a cm from the front . If you saw a pic that would help . I am sure it was a $5.00 part from someone .

Could someone do me a solid and measure the dimensions (LxWxH) of the playfield truck? I do not currently own this pin but am already planning my mods for when I put my order in. Thanks a ton!

When shooting for the smart missile launch, why would a player choose "abort" from the action button?

#3977 9 months ago
Quoted from Nameim:

You are in multiball with your left flipper tied up or limited chance to make the shot and you don't want to waste it.

#3978 9 months ago
Quoted from Nameim:

The truck might be blocking the shot?

#3979 9 months ago
Quoted from Nameim:

IIRC ... there is a cumulative effect on some rewards when you abort.

Quoted from aobrien5:

How’d you snap a pic while cradling both flippers?

#3981 9 months ago

Hi, I can't decide for a second pinball jurassic park or deadpool?
I have a pro metallica pinball machine.

#3982 9 months ago
Quoted from accidental:

The truck might be blocking the shot?

The Smart missile is ONLY available when truck is narrowing the shot, when it's facing the other way super spinner is available.

my main reasons to abort:

In MB and don't have control of other balls flying around so likely to miss the shot.
Not in a paddock, or about to move to a dangerous dino paddock and want to save the smart missile for 'clear paddock' award. I'll try and have it set up with smart missile ready to activate and start paddock at the same time. Hit left ramp - choose clear paddock - hit the award BOOM
You have Chaos MB ready to start, but don't want to start it at that point.
Waiting for 'Invalid Frenzy' to come up as a choice.

Many reasons - and it's a nice choice to have if you accidentally trigger the smart missile.

It’s no choice, but probably the wrong thread to ask.

Quoted from WJxxxx:

Really, didn’t realize that. I’m sure I’ve had smart missile with an open Truck shot.

#3985 9 months ago

Man I’m really loving the escape nublar challenge! It would be really cool if another little mini game was added.

#3986 9 months ago
Quoted from cooked71:

Really, didn’t realize that. I’m sure I’ve had smart missile with an open Truck shot.

If you have another ball in play, you can hit the truck to open the Lane before the missle fires AFTER you trigger the shot with the other ball... If you just have a single ball going, the open truck shot will be on Super Spinner and not Smart missle

#3987 9 months ago
Quoted from 85vett:

So, if your distr was one of the ones to get some of that Feb batch then it's possible.

Asked my distributor, Cointaker, about my order for a JP premium and they said it should ship next week! I hope this stays true, will be bummed if it does get delayed till April as stated earlier. Especially since there were other vendors that still had them in stock when I ordered, but I like dealing with cointaker for all my LEDs so I decided to keep my business with them. This is my first NIB pin. Excited and stressed about if and when it will come!

Having owned and truly enjoyed all three, I would honestly sell Metallica and buy both. Both JP and DP are much better games (in my opinion). If you aren't willing to do that, JP is my choice. Every shot is satisfying with a very unique layout...the code is amazing with so much to do and many paths to take. DP is crazy fun, but is overall a bit less satisfying to shoot than JP (other than the super skill shot into the Katana...that's right up there). DP's code, while awesome and unique, is not as deep and could be slightly repetitive, especially in the early part of the game, due to only having three battles to choose from. That's not a rip on DP at all...it's honestly a close call, but JP is just an amazing machine in every way.

Metallica is a great game, but at the end of the day the layout is super standard and "vanilla", especially when compared to JP and DP. The code is great...until you get past the first Crank It Up and keep going towards End of the Line. It becomes get CIU. Then do it again. Then do it again. Then do it again. Then do it one more time. And it's done the same every time. It just becomes a woodchopping slog, especially if you make the mistake of starting Seek and Destroy and really have to start from scratch qualifying shots for items. And that's a shame since S&D is one of the coolest modes ever! Again...really fun code...until you start getting far in the game and realize it's just the same thing over and over and over. I owned it for a couple years and loved it, but now I am more than happy to play it in other people's collections.

Best of luck with the decision! Not an easy choice, but in my opinion the right answer is always JP!

Bought my first two NIB from cointaker .

Great folks and also have loads of mods all in one place to go broke. Haha .

I should just send them 1k deposit to hold for my next machine whatever that will be in 2020.

If you encounter any problems they will fix it immediately .

Yes I am a fan !!!!

So when the truck is turned to be a tighter shot, do you just shoot for the spinner and hope it makes it in the pool bumpers to register the missile shot?

#3992 9 months ago
Quoted from WizardsCastle:

No, there is enough room to make the shot to the target - the truck being turned doesn't have much of an effect.
If the shot is true it'll hit the target whether the truck is turned or not.

It's the same thought about hitting a shot through the pop bumpers, it doesn't narrow the shot

I love that smart missle shot. I feel like a sniper every time I actually make it. That's one of the things I love about this game....the variety of shot types. It has it all...flowy combo shots, close in your face shots, super long high accuracy shots, flipper tip edge shots, easy feel-good shots, backhandable shots, tight but rewarding shots, a blistering fast repeatable loopshot, etc. It runs the entire gambit in ways most games do not. How many other games out there can make a simple stand-up target feel so amazing to hit when you need it?

#3994 9 months ago

Hit Invalid Frenzy today. Always chose Raptor/Chaos MB and didn’t realize IF is a MB mode too...rad!!

#3995 9 months ago

I did the post replacement fix last night & found that the coil stop was also blown out. Luckily I did happen to have an extra coil stop so that was replaced as well. I positioned the flipper what seems a bit off as the side tower shot is not easily achieved. The flipper is very slightly positioned forward from the right orbit path. The flipper now has full strength, but it seems it needs to be moved back slightly?

Quoted from WizardsCastle:

That could be a strategy, but I usually go for the direct shot. It's more satisfying making that target directly through the pops. Sometimes if I have a 2nd ball in play, I'll try to hit the truck to open the Lane but that rarely works timing wise. I think it's more of a psychological shot than anything, there is plenty of room but the space and countdown sometimes make you overthink it.. It's really a great shot

#3998 9 months ago
Quoted from Ockeyhead:

I did the post replacement fix last night

Be sure to tighten it down real good and check it often.

I have always be told not to overtighten anything on a pinball machine. So when I replaced my post I intentionally put in on "just snug". But after a couple months of play the post loosened itself and wore a spot in the playfield behind it. Now I have to apply a clear coat fix around my replacement post fix. I'm trying not to let it bother me. Can you tell?

#3999 9 months ago

I wonder if it would be worth while to cut a piece of mylar about the size of a nickle and install it there and then put the post back in.
