Quoted from Tbpilot78:

Somethings wrong there man,that music is for when your in the cat millions mode,shouldnt ever start a ball with that music and thank god thats not the only track,not sure whats going on but def a problem

Good to know, I'll track it down. It seems to be intermittent now that I'm paying attention to it. I saw someone in the thread mention audio issues related to the voltage going to the sound board, so I'll check that tomorrow. I also seem to be running old code so I'll burn new eproms as well, just in case it's a bad rom.

Sounds like a good place to start,keep us posted

epetitive or is there a setting I need to change?

Check the gray ribbon cable between the cpu board and the sound board. Might just need to be reseated or it could have a bad connection.

Quoted from TheCapn:

This needs to be sent off for reproductions. Marco can do this right? Aside from this being unobtainable and making a huge profit - do something good for the hobby and look into seeing if this can be reproduced.

If we want something to be reproduced our only shot would be if all of us start going over to Freeplay's thread and start requesting that he do some for LAH. Someone would also need to provide him with a donor ramp that he could use to make a mold from. The more of us that go over there and post a request the better our chances are.

Mine has nothing there. May be the wrong post. I would put a nut on it and you are done.

Done!

Everyone else chime in on the thread. We need to show that there is a demand!

#2208 28 days ago

No post on mine. Wonder if DE intended to put a spot back there at one time. Post is kind of long for that tho.

Mine looks like embryonjohn's photo. Mine has a screw under the plastic. The screw is not holding down the plastic.

Ditto here, but I don't know what's underneath.

#2213 26 days ago

weird - maybe its just the wrong post then and its just supposed to be a cap on it

#2214 26 days ago

Kids figured out how to beat my high score

#2215 24 days ago

Does anyone have issues with the right outlane draining constantly? Like 80% of the time when I launch the ball it will bounce off one of the CRANE targets and go straight into the right outlane. I'm debating on putting in a weaker coil or a larger star post on that drain.

#2216 24 days ago

Is your game level?

#2217 24 days ago
Quoted from bicyclenut:

Is your game level?

Yep, I've checked numerous times and it's perfectly flat across. Currently I have the pitch set to 7.2 to see if that would stop the drains, it made it a bit less frequent but I still feel like the ball bounces straight into the right outlane far more often than it should.

#2218 23 days ago
Quoted from atrainn:

Thanks! I spent a bit of time last night fixing some stuff up on it.

Great job! I still like LAH (although mine is gone) and I love seeing my ticket out in the wild! I wish that we had a list by city of those who purchased it over the last couple of years.

Maybe I will find another LAH fairly local at some point.

Thanks! Mine actually came with the replacement ticket, is definitely better than the original.

Anyways, I do think I've addressed the drains, at least a bit. I switched coil pulse to low, and replaced the outlane posts with full size star posts. I also fixed my scoop wear and put new protectors on, though unfortunately after one game the left protector has a dent in it already :[, oh well.

(sorry that the pictures came out a little blurry.)

Yes, I've had the same problem,
I've messed with the leveling and pitch and improved the problem, but yes, still happens, especially during the start of a multi-ball, which is particularly frustrating!

I ended up putting full sized star posts on the outlanes, that helped a ton. I also installed a 7/16 rubber on the mini post on the right outlane. I'm actually considering taking that out and installing a slightly larger post in place of it too.

For those using cliffy protectors at the three scoops, do you have trouble hitting the shots? Are you using actual cliffy brand protectors or the cheaper set from ebay?

My playfield has the usual wear at each scoop. I filled the scoops and installed the cheaper ebay protectors. With the protectors installed, I am having a hard time hitting the scoops directly. I had previously read about LAH owners removing protectors as it made the shots incredibly difficult to make.

Just curious what others have been experiencing or if there are any possible solutions.

I have Cliffy,s on all 3 scoops. The left dynamite scoop broke as I did not repair the damage first. Cliff made a new one for me and I put it in after fixing the pf. The dynamite hole is the only one that is slightly harder to make. I think it is worth keeping on and missing a few shots.

I know, right? Capn's mix is the bomb! Did you do the speaker upgrade as well? Definitely an additional improvement. I also have the HeadPhones station installed so I can crank up the volume when I'm home alone.

#2231 4 days ago

Yes I did the speaker upgrade but not the headphones - the data east power booster made a huge difference to the overall sound quality and performance
