Quoted from Pickle:

How is the wear with the Mantis? I have the Mantis on my Metallica and it seems to be holding up very well with little to no wear on the scoop.
I am on my second Cliffy on Kiss this is supposed to be an updated version. Rejects don’t seem bad so far. My first Cliffy must have been the early version and it ended up lifting and splitting. It was a mangled mess.

So far the mantis protector seems to be doing a good job. Next time I have the glass off, I'll take some pictures. I was told my cliffy was the updated version as well. I am not certain on the number of plays for when I pulled it out, but it had to be less than 500.

my kiss pro is giving me demon lock issues. balls are getting jammed and the VUK won't kick them out. It seems like the switch is intermittent and the coil stopped working. is there a way to disable the lock until I can figure out a fix for this? game is on location and need to get it up and running

#703 79 days ago

Is it getting stuck during multiballs?
Stern has a replacement piece that will fix this issue.

Not sure if this would help, but there should be an option for VIRTUAL LOCK for Pro and Prem/LE machines. That mechanism should work easily, but just does not. It's poorly designed.

THIS IS THE #1 THING THE KISS UPDATE SHOULD ADDRESS. ADD VIRTUAL LOCK ONLY.

#705 79 days ago

No it happens during regular ball play now

I had trouble with the VUK plunger on mine. Take a read through this post:

https://pinside.com/pinball/forum/topic/kiss-armyno-regrets/page/9#post-3731413

#707 78 days ago

So I did some work tonight. I took the VUK assembly out and made sure the switch was working, it was. I tested the coil with a dmm and everything was in range. Resoldered the lugs and tried it again. Still nothing. Took it out and replaced the coil and everything seems to be working like it should. Kinda weird that the coil was out already

Well..my addiction has bit me again....picking up a nice LE from Steve, so in the club.....beyond waiting on an imminent code drop (appears soon) anything drastic to know about this game? Got to play one in Vegas for quite some time and really enjoyed it...a very fun pin!!!! Thanks...mark

With this and the Munsters coming, you probably need to make room. I could help you out by taking Alien off your hands . . . you’re likely bored with it by now.

Hey all, proud new owner of a preowned Premium. Sadly, when I got it home it wouldn’t boot. After much troubleshooting it boiled down to a bad SD card and defective CPU. A fellow Pinsider was kind enough to send me a backup of his 1.28 image to my Dropbox which got me up and running. Throughout the process I found that there is a known issue with early Spike CPU’s related to USB updates failing immediately upon launch which is what’s happening on mine. I’ve been told that all future updates will require an imaged SD card or replace the CPU which I’m not doing. Curious if anyone else has had a similar issue. Also wanted to see if anyone would be willing to Dropbox me a hdd raw copy image of 1.30 premium.

#715 65 days ago

Has anyone put a colordmd in this game ( Sigma obviously at this point) . I'm a sucker for HIRES, and curious how the display looks from that standpoint. .....I am sure it would get colorized at some point after code is baked...Taken this approach w several of my games....

You can't. Not supported by ColorDMD yet. There's an update coming, so you would imagine animations will be tweaked, so it's not final anyway.

Quoted from Guinnesstime:

I understood" supported" as colorized...Could be wrong...I had in my WCS, Tron, etc. Before the title was supported....

Reached out to Randy for clarity...

#718 65 days ago

Really hope that once the final update is out, the color DMD guys make KISS in color - must buy for me

#719 65 days ago
Quoted from Shapeshifter:

yep, would love to see this title in color

#720 64 days ago

Quoted from Randy:

"HI Mark,

SIGMA will work in KISS in single color mode. However, you’ll need a way to get voltage from the backbox or node board. (The SPIKE adapter we have only works with Ghostbusters and Game of Thrones.)

If the display uses a Chroma board, only 12V is needed and Pinball Life sells an inexpensive SPIKE 12V cable that connects to the node board. If it’s an older display, you’ll need both 5V and 12V. Pinball Life also sells a DC/DC converter board for this that regulates down from 48V, but it’s much more expensive.

Randy Perlow
ColorDMD Displays"

I'll be getting a sigma for the machine, and tie it in to the rgb w speakerlights until it is colorized (external ps for me, however)....should be cool (maybe?)....

ColorDMD is the most impressive mod for any machine that can use it, imho.....

#721 64 days ago

So, can anybody confirm what the right cable is for KISS?

https://www.pinballlife.com/spike-12-volt-backbox-power-adapter-cable.html

This does NOT work with KISS or WWE.

The link to another cable, connects to board near coin door.

I cannot find a 12V compatible KISS lead....

Anyone??

Thanks

#723 64 days ago

Did see that. No idea if it will work for KISS or if there is something simpler out there?

#724 64 days ago

I am sure when/if the final code update drops the flood gates will open for request for Kiss to get color. I am confident Color DMD will put together the right package/options of cables to go with the color DMD. I am sure it is not on the priority list until they are ready to do it. Power is a minor issue as it is just determining the best way to tap into it.

The big issue is some of the HORRIBLE animations that need to be cleaned up so they can be colored....hope it happens soon as this game is SCREAMING for color.

#725 64 days ago

That seems excessive and expensive for this use (imho), as the 12v is all that has to be provided extra. The LE that I'm buying from Steve (HUO) has a 12v molex adapter board mod in the backbox that was added, but I always add an external ps ( stated prior) as I've run into current capacity issues coming off the main 12v.

Anxious to see this "as is" w the SIGMA, and then after the code drop. I'm hooked on colordmd, so will be doing it regardless.

Think I get the machine next week, and can post some pics if wanted after I upfit the machine......

Pics would be great.

And don't forget to get the mod from vireland to eliminate light bleed.

I don't want to fit a 12V wire until I know 100% it is right for KISS. So many say not for KISS and WWE.

Already ordered some of vireland colordmd gaskets for other machines I have ( may need more).

I'm putting one in, as I've yet to see it look bad on any title so far, even in SIGMA mode only (non colorized)...I'll post pics after it gets in....mark

Here is the power cable to which I was referring. It includes a 1A fuse to protect the node board.
https://www.pinballlife.com/spike-12v-power-adapter-53-long.html

The adapter from Mezel Mods will also work. It downconverts from 48V and does not plug into, or risk damage to, the node board. Pinball Life sells a custom board that does the same thing and produces 5V and 12V on the same connector.

To clarify, to fit color dmd to KISS, use this cable and plug in by the coin door?

And run it to back of cabinet?

Want to be sure I will be doing the right thing!

Just looked up the pics of the ps from Terry (previous owner installed in the game I'm getting)......very nice!!!

Where did you buy the 12V lead that is needed to fit it?

Looks good!

This is what i need to know also, is the $7 one from pinballlife.com all i need? And i assume Kiss and Ghostbusters are the same Spike system?

I only did this as a test for Randy to show that it worked on KISS. I think I used the dongle from speakerlightkits to test, but the cable Randy linked will work. It plugs into the node board by the left flipper to tap 12v.

Yes, it works on both KISS and GB, but use the second pic as reference on Pinball Life's website for games GOT and newer.

This cable takes 12V from the node board and outputs it onto the 3-pin molex connector. The 7' ColorDMD SAM/WS power cable plugs into the 3-pin molex and runs back through the cabinet to the backbox.

The leads that work on GB do NOT work on KISS....

But seems this one does although have to plug in front of cab and link to back.

I will buy one of these.

Just seen your reply - thanks - will buy the 53 inch lead.

Finally got it setup...Love it!!!..light show is off the charts...Thanks Steve (PR) for easy transaction...A highly overlooked game, imho...A final code drop, and this is definitely a keeper...Will post some pics after I put the SIGMA in later this week

This should be my last batch for a while, don't let this happen to your PREM/LE. Half off protector when you get the back glass lighted Target MOD. See below for descriptions.

I was just looking at the original promo blurb, what's this referring to?: "Blood-Spitting Demon Bass Solo player experience".
It's not Demon multiball as that's also on the list.

Something I've not uncovered yet? Or something not coded yet?

For about 2 seconds at the start of Demon multiball Gene is spitting blood. That must be what they are referring to. However if I'm right that's a pretty lame 2 second "feature" to use to advertise selling this pinball machine. Maybe this will be expanded upon in the next code release. I must say that if it wasnt for all of us owners bitching about the code I truly believe Stern would've given up on this title years ago.
