Quoted from swampfire:

I would just be happy to make the right ramp consistently from the left flipper. I’m just 3 days in, so maybe it will come with more practice. But right now it’s just “the rattle zone”.

Months in and I’m still working on that shot as well!

#6052 3 days ago
Quoted from John-Floyd:

Thank you guys. I’m not too well versed in flipper adjustments but I’ll give it a shot - I remember I had to tighten one flipper when I first got the game.
Can you post a pic so I can use it as reference?

Pull the glass and just adjust to your liking. But, it takes a long handled Allen to get off, that thing is torqued on hard!!

I’ll give it a try - maybe it will help me hit my 500m goal.

#6054 3 days ago

Oh man, what a huge difference! I just backhanded 4 out of 5 shots after making that adjustment. This is the tool and the size you need:

I know I played 50 or so games with no backhand once. Pulled glass and spent time practicing .now I can hit fairly regularly, but,,,,,,, it does seem to me its a bit harder to hit left eject from cradle. Rolling, easy,

Those flipper toppers are the best ones, IMO. I got a set, but my friend wanted a set and I couldn't find them. I think there was some cease and desist that was sent to Laseriffic or whoever made them and they were discontinued. Sucks because they're really cool.

I can't even remember who made them. Do you ?

Superlube is very good- but i prefer DuPont Teflon wax. its specifically designed to be dry and not pick up dirt. makes a spinner go forever too

Damn !

Zoom spout is very good too. Tiny bit on a q tip

Does that throw off any forehand shots from right flipper ?

Quoted from Kkoss24:

It makes the left eject shot happen pretty late on the flipper, but the others seemed to get easier to me. BUT, I haven’t had a game over 30M since I changed it, lol.

Yeah...I think it was Laseriffic through Cointaker. Can't get 'em now.

Agreed on shots, but still scoring decent , just can't break a billion. And only been past 800 mill once.

I’ve had roughly 8-10 games 280-395 and that’s all recent .I kinda take what the pin is giving mostly as far as strategy . That’s what I really like about this one .Yes there are 2 paths you can go by ,but in the long run ,there’s still time to change the road your on …

#6066 3 days ago

Anyone know what adjustment to make to the ramp shot that you hit with upper flipper? Very tough shot with lots of rejects.

#6067 3 days ago

Awkward wave, hi, I'm new.

I'm having some trouble with the EM spinner when raised. At first the back was a little too high and a slow ball would get stuck on the lip. I loosened the 3 bolts underneath and then the two bottom screws. That did set it just a millimeter or 2 lower, made it level in the back, and fixed the problem. Of course now however, it's a millimeter or so too low in the front and now occasionally a ball will get stuck on the front lip when it's raised.

Is there any way to adjust the front independently from the back when in the raised position?

#6068 2 days ago

Has anyone successfully loaded an SD card image into Pinball Browser? I just want to replace one song: Communication Breakdown. I know the lit shots won’t match the music sections, that’s okay.

I downloaded an SD card image from Stern and tried loading it in pinball browser v7.81 (the latest). I get “Unknown firmware!”.

#6069 2 days ago

I’m liking this look, basically reversing the flipper bat/rubber colors. These are Bally flipper bats, so I’ll swap in Stern/modern when I get my order.

I cranked the playfield back up to 7 degrees. It’s more fast and fun, but my scores are suffering. [EDIT: the old-style flipper bats might have something to do with that]

Enhancement request: If I’m down to 1 ball and I get a ball save, the game should lower the EM before kicking a new ball into the shooter lane. That may seem small, but there are many times that would have helped me.

I was hoping a LZ veteran owner could answer your question. I lucked out, the previous owner leveled my EM perfectly so I haven’t had to adjust it.

Thank you. It's so close to perfect that I'm afraid to experiment blindly and risk making it worse.

#6072 2 days ago

This game is so intense.

Quoted from Killtacular:

About the best I could get mine was perfectly level in the front when raised but a very slight >1mm lip on the back that on a very rare occasion a ball may get hung up on. Never had an issue with my spinner since leveling it so I'm leaving it as is.

Yeah that sounds about where I'm at. Maybe I should just consider that lucky enough and not mess with it any further. No spinner problems as well so at least there is that.

The front of the EM definitely needs to be level as if there's any jump it will bash into the bottom of the spinner at a bad angle and bend it. The back doesn't affect it nearly as much. If the front is level and you're not getting many hangups on the backend I would leave it (I get maybe one or two every 10-15 games or so, so not many.)

I’m in the LZ club! Just pulled the trigger on a premium. I’ve read through this whole tread, just wish I had marked the helpful tips that have been provided. Guess I have to go back through the thread. To be delivered Friday night, man Friday cannot get here fast enough! Guess I’ll have to go drop some quarters at the local brewery to get my fix until Friday.

Add me to the club as well. I should have my premium next week. They are my favorite band and I am really looking forward to it.

#6078 1 day ago

Great to see so many of us new owners getting on board this week.

I’d recommend reading the rule sheet at TiltForums, as well as the one Stern put together. It took me a few days to absorb it all, but I’m really happy with the code now that I understand it.

http://tiltforums.com/t/led-zeppelin-rulesheet/6878

The Icarus rules confused me at first, but now they make perfect sense. Save your Icarus shot for when the four inserts are yellow or green, and you have a great mode going. I blew up an EM Frenzy that way, felt awesome. I’d put the rules for this game in the same category as TWD and MET. RayDay is killing it!

Thanks for the link. My machine has 1.02 code I believe, which code version took out the EM light frenzy? Or has that issue been rectified?

#6080 1 day ago

I’ve only played 1.05, but I don’t see how anyone could be disappointed with it. EM Frenzy is plenty frenetic for me.

If you can find 1.2 or earlier, its worth the loss of minor tweaks. The light show during frenzy is unreal! I'm still on 1.0, no reason to change, my opinion

#6082 1 day ago

Okay, I may need to try 1.02. I’m a little worried about bricking my node boards if I roll back, though.

Is there no way to just reset to default code that it shipped with? Or do you have to reinstall the old code?

Quoted from Enron64:

There’s no “reset” so you’d have to install older code. And there’s no guarantee that the older code would work with the latest node board firmware. Best to just blink rapidly instead.

Ahhh ok. Yeah that makes sense. I enjoy the current code so I will just keep playing as is.

Joined the premium club this week and I’m completely blown away by this machine…absolutely fantastic!!! I’m a huge music fan and like Led Zeppelin but my first impression when LZ was launched was meh… but boy what was I wrong! Everything is spot on with this machine, layout, rules, music, light show, wait… oh sorry I just realize I don’t need to convince you guys. I’m so glad I’ve pulled the trigger and joined the club

Joined the club this week. NIB LZ premium showed up this week. Excited to get it opened and in the game room. With increasing prices I am shocked the rest of the LZ premiums aren’t sold out.

My led premium came installed with the latest version. After reading in this thread about the 1.02 em frenzy, I did successfully go back to that version. The light show was pretty cool, but for me, I felt like after playing a few hours - it was giving me a headache . I went back to latest version. Hopefully they will bring it back with an configurable option.

You can also use a pool noodle. Cut in half then slit it open. Pull you glass out a bit, put it on.

Towel or cardboard works fine.

Aren't most of the latest fixes in wizard modes or things I'll never see?

Honestly, I haven't noticed any differences in the rolled back code outside of the fact that I seem to twitch a bit when the lights start flashing.

#6100 20 hours ago

Hello, I'm just 2 weeks in to my adventure with Zeppelin. I've noticed that my electric magic mech sits a touch high when raised. Can anyone show a pic or describe where I can make the adjustment to lower it a touch?
Thanks!
