Decent week of modding - new illuminated drop targets, trough light, and LZ van for the ramp - very happy with the results. Also picked up a stern HD glass for my Metallica. Gotta say I’m impressed and can definitely tell a difference…may have to pick one up for my LZ.

Enjoy the volume control from outside cab. I’d love to hear anyone’s equalizer/annuitation settings to dial it in the rest of the way. It’s going to be a great weekend.

I have the pinwoofer kit and it sounds great so my settings may be different

Set the equalizer in a gradual V shape to begin and dial in from there. .

What's the best code to use right now, 1.0 or 1.02?
Thanks

This is exactly why I asked, so Thank you both.
Was thinking we might be a month or more out for another update.

#5016 12 months ago

Reason I stayed was I didn't see a huge benefit and seems like a few people had issues. If they were related to 1.02 im not sure, but seems like they weren't there before.

If you get skill shot does it light up and activate your ball save? I'm on 1.02 and it does not do this and I thought it did..

I’m putting my order in as soon as I get paid. Can’t wait. Anyone do the Big Ben mod or the light up car mods?

I have big Ben and a few other mods. Just added some flipper skins (not a fan but wife likes) and a shooter lane protection today.

Ball save is lit on plunge, I believe if you hit skill shot it extends the time its on. But, its been awhile since I've paid attention to that. So not sure if that's a 1.02 fix or,,,, im completely wrong

#5021 12 months ago

No problems on 1.02 for me, well except that it often takes 2 shots instead of 1 to raise the EM. New GC tonight! Man, Celebration Day is just an amazing wizard mode. 1,250 games in and I still love it!

Just for comparison, my GOT premium which I also really like, has about 750 games in 3 years.

I took mine out and coated the metal shaft with WD40. Works great ever since.

Make sure the shaft is straight.

I did the Big Ben mod. It fills the empty corner and looks great.

#5026 12 months ago

I have my own guitar and amp mod obviously. Also, added the speaker panel magnetic art from Wizard Mods recently. I'm getting low on the double-neck guitars if anyone is thinking about pulling the trigger on that mod with a double neck they might want to do it soon.

Pull it all the way up, wax the metal rod its on, be sure to remove all wax. Make sure it will fall back in place, if not ,straighten a bit. I've only waxed one time since unboxing

This was answered for you already...

Quoted from drummermike:

Make sure the shaft is straight.

Although there are a couple other fixes. You could remove it and sand the metal rod down ever so slightly, then put some silicon lube on it (just a rubbing...nothing visible!).

I found the best adjustment was to adjust the piece that holds the hole that the rod passes through. It's right on the top of the playfield IIRC. Easy fix...it just probably came out of alignment. Some Loctite will help keep it in position (the blue stuff only!).

#5030 12 months ago

I adjusted and lubricated… I’ll see how it works.

#5031 12 months ago
Quoted from Drussksu:

Mine was hitting the glass and getting stuck. It turned out to be the screw fell off on the bottom. I wish it would just hit the glass and not get stuck as it is awesome getting it that high. I would have left the screw off!!

#5032 12 months ago

The design had to be changed from EHOH as hitting the glass caused the gargoyles to break off. Too bad as it is satisfying somehow

My Elvira must have the fix. I wouldn't mind having to deal with a broken gargoyle to get that sensation. LOL

Anyone experiencing--or better yet have a solution for--consistent rejects from the top lock?

Didn't have this problem until about a week ago. Now the top shot rejects about 95% of the solid, deliberate shots into the right orbit. I'm only able to land the top lock on a weak shot up the orbit, or a lucky bounce off the jets.

I haven't had this problem but when I checked mine the rubber was askew, from the factory probably. I'd check that, make sure the switch is depressing easily in the hole, make sure the metal stop back of the hole is perpendicular and not tilted.

Just wanted to share a bit of anecdotal evidence of the fun factor on Led Zeppelin…

I had my 15 year old nephew over this past weekend. He’d been over in the past when all I had was my Sopranos machine and enjoyed playing it. Since the wife and I moved to a new house a few months ago with more room I’ve added a Star Wars Pro and the LZ Premium. The nephew is a massive Star Wars fan, as such I’d been hyping the game to him and he was super excited to play it. Of course it was the first game he started when he came over, no attention being paid to LZ. After several plays of SW, I suggested he try LZ. After one play he was hooked, spent the rest of the time playing nothing but LZ. He didn’t play SW again until I teased him about not being a true fan, he then felt obligated to play it.

I asked him why all the LZ play, did he know and like the music? He said, no, he’d never heard those songs (Immigrant Song may have sounded familiar, he wasn’t sure), but he quickly decided he liked them. He enjoyed the game for the music, the lights, and the magic spinner (knock on wood it’s been working properly for a couple weeks now). He also appreciated the multiple opportunities for multiballs in LZ.

Just thought I’d share that, still can’t believe Star Wars collected dust while he was here, never saw that coming!

Unboxed my premium today! Going on location at Crazy Rooster brewery in Powhatan, VA later this week.

The glass is this thing is REALLY tight. Like a bit concerning how tight it is. It comes out but no way you're doing it without leaving some big smudges on the glass. Other than that, aces / 10 probably the most launch ready game I've ever received. Came with the spinner fix and 1.02 code installed even. Put a DBA in it, a little brain lube on the spinners, and she is smoking. Only other issue is it came with these nice cards in it instead of the big yellow price card which is what I actually needed. Didn't see any in the bag like there usually are.

That's why I use these type of gloves with gripper dots. I started using them to replace tubes in my audio gear. Safety and no hand oil residue

Now that you mention it, mine didn’t come with a price card either. I checked because mine is HUO, and would’ve been willing to mail it to you, but…

#5040 12 months ago

I'm going to have to print one off, I'll be taking it to the location tomorrow for launch Weds but thanks for the thought! If I was more practical I would have just taken it straight to the brewery but I wanted a night to session it with my spouse in the kitchen

Quoted from jorant:

This is the state of denial. You can't be serious that more them maybe .1% of the child population know or care about these old bands. And we cannot assume that pinball manufacturers are doing it to cater to them.
I agree with op. They're catering to the older crowd and do nothing to make a younger audience care. They know they're on a sinking ship and are doing very little to turn it around. I welcome themes such as rick and morty and mandolorian, but these are sandwiched in between batman 66/elvira and grandpa rock.

Quoted from jorant:

Remove tmnt, jurrasic park, potc and hot wheels. Those sound to our old ears like young themes, but really aren't. Kids give zero fucks about star wars, so even mando is only sort of catering to them because of "baby yoda."
And sadly, nicoy3k makes a good point. Wtf theme are they gonna want? Some ticktok YouTube theme? God no. For fuck sake no. Among us... that could work. Other video games? Yep, that could work. But there isn't as many themes to connect to for them that would pique their interests. Believe me, I have two children I've all but forced to play pinball and they give absolutely zero craps.

Pull the glass and see if ball save works and if led is burnt out.

So from my super unscientific, one example, we can surmise that the younger generation has it all figured out. They could care less about theme and ultimately about gameplay. I could see it in his eyes each time he hit one of those steep ramps in LZ, and each time he ripped the spinner. When he got an electric magic frenzy I thought his head was going to explode!

It works in game just not when I hit first ball skill shot.

#5048 12 months ago

Dialing in this game makes a huge difference. Make sure the Electro-Magic is flat and flush with the playfield and bend the ball guide inwards so that it sits just to the inside of the left 180* ramp entrance(the one you hit from the upper right flipper). So awesome now!

#5050 12 months ago

During the foretold sesh with my beautiful bride the shooter lane gate popped free and for the first time I also started having a few rejects off of the scoop for the right orbit. I have also seen 3 times now the left ball save activate during multiball but not actually save the ball. Anybody else had this?
