Hey all. My The Lost World Jurassic Park is getting close to being done. Playfield magnets are grabbing and holding balls after upping the fuses to 4A SB and the Snagger is snagging them. The last issue is the drop target infront of the snagger - it tends to rapid fire a few or several times when resetting to the up position. It seems like the coil is too powerful. I'll try some adjustment of the microswitch in the mech that registers the target up or down. Anyone else had to address this issue and have some advise?

I also have the parts kit to add the second channel of audio - should I be looking forward to good stereo sound?

I heard the audio is all Mono anyway, I just added the second speaker to mine so at least you hear it from both sides. Just didn't figure the extra effort and risk was worth it for the board work. I had to have the second speaker and a sub though. I would love a grill with the JP logo on the right side I didn't want to mess up the original cover though. Anyone make one?

Not that I've seen. I'd be ok without the insert with a speaker instead.

So, THIS GAME IS HARD! Particularly due to these modular stand up targets. They fire the ball right back at the flippers with absolutely no loss of speed. This is so different than any other game I have owned. So different and unenjoyable that I'm considering replacing them with standard targets that have the foam rebound damper. Plus, they are expensive to replace! Thoughts anyone?

I just used a standard black mesh on the right side it looks fine that way. It would be nice to still have the logo though, I wonder if there is a way to print it on to the mesh or some type of sticker. Changing to standard targets would be an improvement for sure, I guess it wouldn't be that bad its just the two banks of three and the five for Site B. I think I'll look around and see what's available that might work.

The red Raptor targets don't bother me since they are an an oblique angle and don't fire back at the flippers, though the 'clack' sound they make when hit sounds cheap. It's the green Site B targets that draw my ire. They aren't too difficult to find unless you want to retain their translucent look instead of solid green. zitt has green translucent target replacements at pinballmods.com but not in the 1/2" x 1" oblong shape. I have a PM to him asking about it...

If you look at the Color drop down - you'll see that clear green is available.

My Site B targets are all clear I assumed they were stock, is green the stock color? The inserts are blue and I did the Color DMD with blue for the mode. I'll probably just buy blue 1/2 x 1" targets are the rear or front mount?

Interesting. Pics on the internet show and mine came with all green. The pop caps are clear. The mounting screws are on the target-side of the switches so i believe that is front mount.

My metalwork is not great looking and after seeing Cary Hardy's latest episode I'm considering having it power coated. Any input on color choice? I'm thinking a dark orange or hammer-tone dark green.

I'm planning on having this apron card with the logo, from the thread:

Huh... mine are all translucent red
I have seen translucent dark green and light greenish/yellow too though.

Mine are fluorescent green. That is the color called out in the manual. I'm guessing that color is hard to get so people change them.

Does anybody have a pic of how the display mounts?

Long shot but does anybody have the back half of an egg?

I'm working on reproductions of both halves of the egg. It's been slow going with other projects happening but i'm getting there.

#415 9 days ago

An egg set was just listed on eBay with a starting bid of $199(!!!).

My machine was performing a ball search occasionally after locking a ball with the Snagger and not popping it out of the egg. I've spend a lot of time getting the Egg trough switch positioned, shaped, and working properly so thought that the ball wasn't pressing it in to trigger the egg kick out. I would raise the playfield then the ball would come out. Yesterday I noticed that I was only getting a 3-ball multiball, then after my last ball the launcher would shoot out 3 balls. Hmm, where is the 4th ball? Apparently the game was making do with 3 but then trying to find the 4th between games. Very interesting! I took a closer look around the playfield and found the 4th ball nestled inside the Humvee against the back of the Snagger. Turns out the ball never dropped through the playfield into the subway. So I lowered the Snagger, pulled the Humvee, and replaced the two rear-most Snagger bracket screws with posts and rings. See pics. Has anyone else encountered this or does your machine already have some sort of ball block installed here?

Oh no! The Snagger's got my ball!

Huh, my "add time" is red too.
Does anybody else have a raptor on top of the snagger truck or is it all rexs?
