About the raptor pit problems
Im sorry, I didnt see this, can more be shared?
Im feeling real good about picking up this game.
I played a couple hours today, all alone in the Lounge, and found myself a bit in awe about
the variety of mode, rules, and shots....It simply grabbed me by the balls, and gave me much more than
1 more game feeling.
Multiballs are well earned, not given out, and I played 2.
Holy Crap, trying to keep balls in focus with the upper flipper and the 5? possible shots from it,
was an insane rush!
Must upper flipper games dont have so many different fast flowing shots that way.
Im going to wait for the next run...let them get some changes out with flipper post, QC, etc....
Now, what to move out??? WH2O?, ICB? a bunch of slots? Thats the tough part.
(Wonka also ate some quarters for the first time, but after hearing, "shoot Augustus Gloop" a couple times,
I knew what I preferred...pretty game, though).
Quoted from Yoko2una:
I’m noticing the same on the one I play on location. Think about it. It’s a horseshoe ramp with the entry aligned with the PF surface, but the plunge is coming off of a jump ramp out of the shooter lane. Therefore any misalignment, up, down, left, or right may lower its ability to go all the way up.
It’s a game that may need some minor tweaks, but will probably shoot amazingly when dialed in.
I made some 3 and 4 loop combos in multiball, that felt like the 4th of July Fireworks!
I have been playing this game all week in my head....I dont want to wait, but need to, until the dust settles.
It truly has something special in Gameplay that has grabbed me, and sucked me in.
Quoted from DarthSinex:
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 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...
Quoted from HighProtein:
I'm getting stuck balls here a lot!
Atleast twice yesterday...
Solution today later will be removing spacer inbetween the plastics as the ball gets stuck tight into them. The cause is air balls from the captive ball but i'm not lowering the flipper strengths.
Try a removable rubber clear dot used for cabinets. (worth a shot if its a small gap)
Great success through the years....
Quoted from C_Presley:
we should talk, I go out west every summer for a few weeks to dig and live in the best Devonian location in the world![quoted image]
Thanks!, Would be cool....I use to dig in NY for Devonian.....doubt my body could handle the bending these days!
What do you find?
I ordered mine Saturday Morning and received it yesterday.
It is well made, with the amber cast nicely threaded and glued.
I havent installed yet, but is real easy if you have done just one shooter rod in the past.
Lights are a nice touch.
Reasonable to assume, a first batch arrived at Stern, and orders from their store, were filled first.
Distributors, likely will be waiting on the next shipment.
Reach out to Marshall, direct at Little Shop of Games.
This is the first game in my 50 years that everyone in the family loves!
Even Caught my wife playing by herself!!!
Quoted from Dr-pin:
Maybe put something like this on the wall next to the game?
Nice! Heres the pic from the link
Ill get some pics up later, but my 8 month old granddaughter loved the lights on my pinball games!
Her first visit!
She was even able to follow the ball!
After letting her sit and watch a couple games on each machine, she reaches out to the ones she likes.
The 2 that got her attention was Dialed in and Jurassic Park!
Starting her young, and she has good taste!
Miss Alex hand a Fun Day with Grandpa! At 8 months, she was grabbing for the Ball! Good Start!
Quoted from GamerRick:
If she’s anything like my son, she’ll be beating your high scores by the time she is 5. Enjoy it now!
I told my daughter, that her girl, will be a pinball force! She gets a Mousin at her house when they move back next year from Nashville!
Tomorrow, I show her Ghostbusters.
Love seeing all of our kids, and grand kids on Pinside enjoying the hobby!
I was told there would be 1 shipment arriving in December, and that supply was extremely limited...
Of course, this could change, but that was what I was told in person.
Quoted from Green-Machine:
I’ve spent my whole life expecting perfection. It is very tiresome and irrational. As long as people are imperfect we will continue having imperfections. I really enjoy life more not caring so much! Thanks to my wife
The Message for All of US this Christmas!
I wanted to share a Topper I started coordinated work on.
Its 7 or 8 layers deep of thick plastic, laser cut.
The Base you see, is one I put together, and the production would likely be a flatter piece,
with the supports not showing above the sign lettering. Secures with Nano Tape.
What do you think? Any customers as I shoot this to be a $99 Price?
I also have left over from messing with Mods, 5 Licence JP Miniature Dinos.
They have a Base that glows green, and I put 1 above control room flasher, and another on the upper right.
There is also 2-5 Resin Amber Pieces. 2 Tear Drop, they can go on Control room, but I found them a bit too big, or as they are drilled at the top, you could enlarge and make a keychain! These are $15 shipped.
There are 3 Flat Resin Amber. 1 Is very thick....Call that a Paperweight, and 2 thinner.
1 I tapped and drilled in an effort to place at the entrance to the spiral ramp.That one is off a little, but with 2 l brackets, it should mount.the other is undrilled. Each are $20 shipped.
Im a dumb audiophile. The Sound updates look great, along with everything else!
Im hoping someone with an external sub, and pinsound board can share their settings.
Quoted from JediMcMuffin:
Any chance you guide me on tuning any of the audio settings? I have the Pinwoofer module running to a PSW-10, the rest of my setup is default on a Pro model.
Looking for the same as you.
It might take a few days for others to figure it out.
(Im also having hearing issues)
Screw up on the line of the contractor that made the coil stops.
Welding? Rivet/Press? Rod/Hole Size? Metal Quality? Human Error?
On my game, the wood was cut deeper on the left side, so the metal ramp by the screw was lower, and easy to feel this.
I shimmed with folded business card cutting, a couple folds, and only tightened to level.
Lowered coil strength, centered rod, and changed spring. Works the loop now 90%+
Quoted from manadams:
Picked up a pro today and was curious if anyone added just a couple of lights to brighten up the middle of the playfield. Don't want to risk frying a node board doing it the wrong way.
I have, Ive tapped into GI, but Ive had mixed results of "brightness" likely amperage? produced by different node boards. Ill be trying some 12V micro spots off the service plug next, but at first they wont match GI Effects and be always on.
Short of an error message, is there anyone that has an info on the limits of extra amps available from nodes?
Quoted from RPZ:
I may be completely missing this, but has someone made a mod where the helicopter plastic on Premium/LE is changed to an actual helicopter using existing blades? Thanks!
Its been hand made, but not as a commercial mod.
Id believe the issue is its a bit hard to accomplish, which means an advanced skill needed,
and lots of headaches from everyone else.
