Quoted from PinballHaven:

All the rush people bought them up, wait until rush lighting comes out and there will be a ton of them for sale for cheap.

Lol, ya that’s what I see. However was looking at getting a zepp

Most of the rush fans will rebuy for the artwork and sell the zep ones later I think

Hoping so at this point lol. I know I’ll be grabbing a set for rush but didn’t buy the Zepp ones for it. Was just watching video of Zepp with the lighting. Jeepers, forgot how awesome it was. No way I can own a Zepp without it

Thanks - this stops it from going underneath the plastic on the left side of the Zeppelin??

Yes.

Ball has never gone under since putting it there.

Hello, still searchingfor the LZ prem software 1.15 anyone still have the files ?
please help me out - thank you

#8457 63 days ago

beelzeboob - hey man hope all is well….who delivered your mothership mod? I ordered the same day you did and it shipped out from Brazil on 10/24 - still hasn’t arrived. I’m assuming it’s our fine U.S. postal service who lost it or delivered to the wrong address….

I'm pretty sure it was USPS. And if it hasn't come by now, then yeah...I'm betting they lost it. Does Senor Gigante know about it? Maybe he'll make you another one. If he doesn't, my friend wasn't head over heels about the one I bought for him. So he might be willing to part with it. Not sure. But keep me posted via PM if you'd like...no point in jamming up a thread about it.

#8459 63 days ago

Thanks man. Yeah he knows and is sending another one while still investigating the original shipment. Great guy and I’m sure I’ll be thrilled with it when it arrives.

If you have it set up in the settings, you can hold the left flipper button and the start button until the game restarts. This setting may be on by default, can't remember.

Here is the SD image for LZ Premium/LE 1.15 (led_zeppelin_le-1_15_0.Release.8G.sdcard.raw.zip). I happened to still have it in my downloads folder. Let me know when you're done, so I can remove it from by Google drive.

Ben41 I'm glad I could help. I don't have plans for a sound mod since the songs are synchronized with the expression lights and playfield shots. It would be nice to maybe update some of the video assets or callouts someday just for fun. Merry xmas to you and yours too.

#8466 61 days ago

Is there a way to play the game without the music ? Does the music ever get old while playing ?

#8467 60 days ago

Synchronized with the lights OK, but how synchronized with the shots? Ah probably you mean the guitar solos?

#8468 60 days ago

I searched the forum for Middle Ramp Rejects and didn't come up with much. Curious other than raising the 'cover' for the horseshoe if there have been any other pertinent solutions. I'm about to remove it and see how many balls end up in the belly Gotta be less than the rejects I get from that sucker. A high speed ball just slams into it although I've raised it with not just one but 2 nylon washers.

The music is great and goes with the lighting.

Never saw your original post, I have some of the older premium codes that work with PB. Not sure if 1.15 will work? I have mainly been using 1.10 with PB.

It terms of the expression lighting, I don't really find it is noticeable when you change out the songs.

#8472 60 days ago

The rubber behind my zep drop targets has broken twice in a month. Any suggestions? I was using Titans but clearly they don't hold up for this area.

I posted this awhile back as someone else had the same issue...Mine are still holding up just fine no issues!

Super-Bands...I have Super-Bands on my Zep. in that area you are talking about and after the factory rubber broke after a few weeks I put a purple Super-Band up there and it's good to go! Also have Super-Bands on my Met...same thing the rubber up entering/exiting the pops into the right orbit was constantly breaking I had to change it after getting it home from every show...Soon as Super-Bands came out with rings I got a purple one and put it up there and have only had to clean it since. No issues with breaking or anything else! I have them on most of my collection flippers and rings and have no issues with them!

1.15 is fine as you can see in another thread where all available versions are listet.
I already tried to switch a few songs, and for me it's also OK if the lights are not synced. Still have to change the letters so that the display Is matching too

#8475 60 days ago

You'll notice it's the center most post where it wants to break. Sleeve this post with vacuum or windshield washer hose you can get from Advance. You will have no more problems.

#8476 60 days ago

Anyone decided to retrofit with the Insider Connected? I’m late to the party and actually used it for the first time on another game, thought it was nice tracking achievements but too busy actually playing to see what was awarded at the time. Wondering if worth upgrading Zeppelin.

#8477 60 days ago

I did - One of the few games where the red doesn’t look to bad. I like IC, and it’s always fun when you hear that achievement sound ring out when having a good game. Home team was a great recent addition and looking forward to the home leaderboards as well

I have IC on all my games that are IC programmed...except Aerosmith (It's at a friends house, I've got the kit for it when it gets back home.) I like the achievements, and it's fun to go back and look at your achievements and high scores. The Home team function is great you just hold the left flipper and add those that you want in the game...no more worrying about bringing up your code at home!! The leader boards are fun to see if you can get on the board. I like how they do different games a couple times a month! I just don't have a GOTG here to try this time.

I added Dazed and Confused and When the Levee Breaks and you have to remember certain letters are not available when changing the song names. I posted the instructions in PB thread.

I added it to my Jurassic park premium but did it with the coin door mount as I did not want to remove the apron art work, one other option to consider.

#8481 60 days ago

I'm still learning the rules, but what a fun machine. I was able to complete 5 combos on the ramp shots.

you only need one scanner in a home lineup to have IC / home team on all games, in case you didn't realize that. I like it for home play when we have friends over, helps people remember who's up for sure. I also like that it keeps my history and best score on each game, no more pictures on the phone when I want to remember the event. Achievements are an individual thing, I was into that when it came out but kind of over it at this point.

#8485 59 days ago

Here's a tip that may help you make that center ramp- it has helped me, maybe 10 percent or so. Remove the rubber of the upper flipper then take a pinball and see where it hits the upper flipper about 1/4 inch above the tip.
Take a Dremel with about a 1 inch sander wheel and grind a 1/4 moon shape in the flipper where the ball hits. Replace the rubber- this should hide any grinding you've done. This will extend the sweet spot of the flipper and help you make this difficult shot- it still won't be easy but a tiny bit easier

#8486 59 days ago

I’d like to find a Zep prem/le to have next to my Rush. Lmk if you are in CA and may be willing to sell.

#8487 59 days ago

Does anyone else here get random games where EM behavior is a bit erratic? 98% of the time I have no issues but once in a while I get a game where the platform may go up and down a few times or not come up l the way when it's supposed to.

Maybe it's like any game that acts up a bit from time to time?

No.....please don’t modify flipper bats.

My spinner comes out about every 30 games. Is there a way to secure it that doesn’t slow down the spin?

I’ve been wondering this myself. Any small tab lock things we would put on each side or something.

Stern sent me a couple replacements, I had good luck initially, but my replacement gate fell out yesterday...

I am going to take the second gate and mount they sent, install the gate, then bend the upper wire end down a little and install. I think that should work fine. There really isn’t much difference between the new and original that I can see.

#8492 58 days ago

Something like this if they’re small enough and heat shrink it just onto the very ends of the arms maybe?

I posted an elegant fix that's the most permanent I've seen.

Had a custom John Bonham tribute plate made for my Premium. Covers the Insider Connect sticker on the front speaker panel perfectly. If anyone wants one PM me. Thanks.

Here are some pictures of how my ball is getting stuck. The proposed solution of the plastic protector that mounts to the right side of the Zeppelin will not work for my issue.

Just got done modding my pro to have the center ramp on it. Absolute game changer! Love it!

That’s pretty awesome any chance you could post some video of it in gameplay? Does the switch still register? I’m assuming so since it’s a good thing to hit in the game

Sure i can do that, yes i wired it up with optos to trigger for the switch hit the same way that I did on my Iron Maiden 180 ramp mod. It shoots smooth as would be expected since that is a ramp shot on the prem/Le but I hate dead end shots and feel this flows for the game so much better

#8500 56 days ago

Any strategies to playing this game?
