Quoted from TheCapn:

If you aren't logged into their site - you wont have access to downloads.
This link should take you to LAH mixes page: http://pinsound-community.org/forum/index.php?/files/category/68-last-action-hero/
Mine should be at the bottom. Click on it and then you should see the next page with the 1.20 at the bottom. I have it highlighted in yellow here.
On my end it does say "Pending Approval" though. So, that may take a day or so.[quoted image][quoted image]

Still nothing.

If anyone is interested in a data east soundboard with the LAH roms in it, let me know, just placed the pinsound order

Don‘t sell it separately! If you ever want to sell your whole pin in the future, you‘ll fetch a better price when you can provide all the original matching boards.

LAH is a grail pin for my wife, so unless we get divorced (and its hers so she would keep it most likely in the divorce) it ain't going nowhere.

Any tips for adjusting the launcher coil. I may be over thinking it but put new sleeve on and it seems like consistently I hit the “r” on launch, someone tell me this is normal and I’m overthinking it

Mine used to always hit the "N" or "E" drop targets consistently... I don't believe there's a way you can set the power in the settings.

#2607 38 days ago

Mine always goes for the N-E range. If you know where it tends to hit then you know when to launch for that skill shot - so it shouldn't be an issue.

#2610 38 days ago

Mine seems weak. Guess I’ll order a coil lol

Joined the club last weekend. Put some LEDs in it already and upgraded the ROMs. Need to do nvram but the batteries were already relocated.

Need to fix me pop bumper, otherwise everything works well.

ColorDMD soon.

So calling all pinsound plus users. I'm not able to adjust volume real well. I got the pinsound plus and the power booster, but not the head phone station. Cant adjust volume low, only high, so the imagine if the master volume control is in the middle, going down do es s nothing, going up makes it louder. Cannot get it at the right level when the kids are in bed. Any fixes or help is appreciated

Have you tried adjust the volume pot inside the cabinet? If I remember correctly, when setting up my board(original pinsound), I had to turn the volume pot inside the cabinet all the way to the right(max volume). From here I set the pots on the pinsound board itself and I can turn the cabinet volume pot down if I want it quieter.

#2614 31 days ago

Only solution I’ve found is to turn down the sub booster

Yes I'm refering to the pot in the cabinet. No master volumenon pinsound plus just the cabinet one.

Just joined the last action hero owners club, and having a blast with this game! It is my first machine, so already learning a ton. Regarding the game rom version, does this indicate I am running the newest custom version of the ROM? (Pardon the pin Stadium attract lighting, I promise the game isn’t blue)

Congratulations, you have done well for a first pin!

One of DE finest efforts IMHO.

Thanks! While I've been a location player for many years, it's an amazing feeling to be playing my own game. I had played LAH on location, and recall enjoying the gameplay. It popped up locally for $2k, and I knew it was meant to be! The endorphin rush from my first 6-ball multiball was something else. As far as condition, this is definitely a players machine (6-7/10). Here's the to-do list for reference.

Already done:
* New Balls
* Playfield cleaned and waxed
* Pinstadium light kit
* New custom rom (came this way)

Next steps:
* Install Cliffy Protectors over worn scoops
* Install replacement DMD (current screen has a vertical line, but bright). Paid $100 for used DMD
* Purchase new rubbers and pingulp!
* Consider replacing some broken plastics

The best thing on earth you can do to this machine is get a pinsound card its incredible, also consider a colordmd if feasible

#2621 20 days ago

Cliffys are a must for protection, but it will turn your easy shooting mode start hole into a much harder, laser accurate shooting affair. And it's better for it.

Absolutely! Get both ColorDMD and PinSound+ (don't forget the DataEast Power Booster), and also update the speakers. I also recommend the HeadPhoens Station.

As stated many times in this thread. Check your fuse clips. If the game is fully working you may be okay - for now. But just keep that in mind down the road if/when you start seeing intermittent issues. As stated by others you may want to invest in a pinsound for the game. It really changes the game for the better. Here is a video to show you:

Wow, that sound package is amazing. I'll need to make a decision on how far to go with this game after logging some more plays. If another $400 makes it a long-term keeper then it's no brainer.

I also agree its worth it.

The Getaway needs a Mix from the Capn in the worst way!!

Bought a LAH last night and bringing it in the house later today.

Oooof, $400 for a Pinsound? I enjoy customizing my Stern games with Pinball Browser (added videos to Aerosmith; custom music for Mustang; Ghostbusters; Metallica; Star Trek Pro), but that's a $20 expense.

That mix above, the AC/DC "Dynamite" callout, seems to be too intrusive, interrupts the songs and plays way too often during gameplay. I get the idea, but doesn't work for me.

To each their own I guess.

I don't know if you have Cliffys on your game but they make that scoop alot tougher to hit. I can't hit the scoop reliably enough that the Dynamite callout is heard too much...

No Cliffys installed and likely will not install them even though there is some scoop wear. I typically do not like the negative affect Cliffys have on making scoop shots.

Version 1.05 ROM was installed, so I burned 1.12 and 1.13 chips tonight. Will play on 1.12 for a few days and then install the 1.13 chip. In cases like this I prefer to play a bit on the original code before installing custom code. Otherwise I can’t appreciate the changes made since I wouldn’t know any better.

All 3 magnet fuses were blown and I replaced them. The magnet action is so cool! Shaker board was missing a fuse and now it really comes to life when the crane is moving. Was barely rumbling with one of the three fuses missing.

Removed the cool white LEDs from the back box and replaced with incandescent, so now Arnold has normal skin tones instead of looking as if he was in 7-11 under fluorescent lights.

Anyone done pin2dmd for Last Action Hero? I'm thinking of picking a pin2dmd but no mention of anyone having done one here.

Looking for advise on my LAH. Suddenly the game is not recognizing when a ball goes into either hole. No score or action is taken and the game just sits there. Then it gives through the lost/stuck ball routine and fires off all of the coils and such. It ejects the ball and the game continues.
I activated multiball with the smart missile and balls just kept going in the 2 holes but it never ejected a ball. I got 5 balls in their as the remaining bell drained. It ejected a ball on ball search and eventually multiball ended.
I am relatively new to repair and would appreciate any advise. I am assuming a sensor of some sort is acting up as its not recognizing when a ball goes in either hole.
Any advise would be appreciated!
Thank you!

Those switches take a pounding. Go into diagnostic test mode and test them. I had to adjust the switch inside the trough because the ball was not triggering in when going in the right scoop.
