Quoted from Ven:

Anyone happen to have a set of the black lightning bolt inlane plastics or possibly a scan of them? Picked up an MSF and it is missing these and also missing the clear plastic cover for the right ramp that keeps air balls from hitting the wire form ramp for the north pole shot.
Thanks..

I got a set of clear plastics from Germany on Ebay,$20. Search Frankenstein pinball on it.

Yeah they seem to be hard to come by, if i can get a scan of them I can reproduce them so hopefully someone has a scan or could possibly scan them for me.

Hey, you are in luck! I just bought a Frankenstein two weeks ago and am cleaning it up now. My inlane plastics are in excellent condition so I scanned them in for you. It is a 24 bit BMP at 600 dpi. I will PM you.

A friend picked up a Frankenstein and I'm starting to work on it for him. The display is not working and in looking the game over, I have a question for other owners. How is the display controller powered? Other pictures I have seen show a connector going to J1 from the power board. This game does not have that connection. should there be a connection?

Thanks!

There is a 5 pin connector on the display to the power supply at CN6.

So does anyone know what size Legs MSF is suppose to have? I just noticed on mine yes just now only had the game a few months.. Well i have 3 legs that are 28 1/2 and the other is 30 1/2 guess that why the rear left leg leveler is unscrewed 2 inches.. i know i should have figured that out but was going to put new leg levelers and thought i measure the legs..

So if anyone has any insight that would be great..

i`m thinking of just putting 30 1/2 on this way the leg levelers wont be long..

The Part # is 535-5020-50

Thanks

HIPPY Thanks that was the problem! The connector was hidden behind the wire bundle going into the cabinet! On to the next step.

Yes. look in Pinside marketplace,$400.

reflow solder on this connection that goes to dmd board notorious for being flakey.

Just so you have a choice, I just saw Colordmd made one , finally, led only. $469. Yep, pricey, but, check their video sample on their site. Thinking about it myself.

#466 11 months ago

I got a panel from PinballSP. Up to 4 colors you set your self. And a full coloring image on the way
https://pinside.com/pinball/forum/topic/dmdmk64-new-dmd-multicolor-by-pinballsp-is-on-the-way

I am pretty happy with that one

#467 11 months ago

For pin2dmd there is also a full color version close to complete while the pinball sp thing never has shown more than four colors at a time. See here http://vpuniverse.com/forums/topic/3702-mary-shelleys-frankenstein/

Get a PinSound board. It's the best mod ever for Frankenstein! That is all.

Congrats! Looks like you also have a BSD, same as me. You should consider upgrading them with a pinsound board, that's a game changer for sure

Thanks everyone! Love this game.

Yes, i was looking at Pinsound last night. I need it for my MSF, BSD and JP. I just need to save a few pennies because they all need speaker replacements as well and looks like about $500 per game with pinsound board and speakers for each.

Thanks
Pat

#475 9 months ago

There's an alternative that requires some diy work, but is much cheaper. I'm going to install one on my MSF soon, on my JP it is already running well.

Check out https://tiltaudio.com or for JP look at my YouTube channel https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL7wZK3Dpsn941nw1Wfdt1E1nPjo_W5dHP

especially this one

Does anyone out there need a set of inlane plastics?

I made up a new set because my machine was missing them and I made a few extras $25 plus shipping for a pair.

Still missing the clear ramp cover plastic, working on it now should have one off the laser cutter tonight yet and the plastic around the creature is broken so will have to see what I can do about it too.

damn, wish you were around about 4 yrs ago making these!

Quoted from ccbiggsoo7:

I have quite a few misc tools/machines around so when I get a Pin I usually end up making at least a few things for it that are no longer available for purchase, I am not into production but I normally make a few extras while I am at it and offer them in case someone else is needing the part also.

Was wondering has anyone taken the Mylar off their Frankenstein? Just was wondering seen other post about the Mylar taken off..

#488 8 months ago

I did. Tried heat gun first and burnt a plastic. Then tried freeze method next and a couple of insert decals (the two at the bottom of the ramp) came off. Then flour and alcohol to get the glue off. Yep, it was a disaster...

#489 8 months ago
Quoted from Jtm3:

Yep, it was a disaster...

That is exactly why I haven't tried on this game. Would love to have that bright shiny finish but the risk reward just didn't seem worth it.

#490 8 months ago

thanks think ill the Mylar alone as well..

#491 8 months ago

just ordered the color dmd for my msf since the pinsound is on back order for 2 months..

What happened to Pinsound? You will be surprised how nice the game is with the download. All right out of the movie. Your old plasma dmd will sell.

oh yes I know I have sold the original DMD already for 150+and it had 2 vertical lines out on it. The one I'm using now i bought on ebay a few months back but it worked. so that will be easy 180+ on ebay..

Pinsound says its a 2 month wait when you go to order it so ill have to wait ill just keep checking..

I sold my old dmd ,fast, no missing lines, same price. I wonder what happened to Pinsound. If you are missing any or, have scratched ones, Ebay has some clear plastics for your MSF. Came from Germany, very nice addition, too. I got one I didn't even know I was supposed to. One was missing.

you'd be surprised how polishing mylar with treasure cove kit and a buff pad on a drill will clear it up.

I had very good results as well with "3M Finess it 09639" and a buffing pad in the drill machine.

#497 8 months ago

Mary Shelly`s Frankenstein Owners im looking for this part

Part # 830-5636-00 its the Mav. Speaker Plexi W/Artwork

The previous owner cut out the clear part of the panel So My New ColorDMD is not behind a Panel..

#498 8 months ago

I fixed a friend's Frankenstein with an X-Pin power supply. The X-Pin board puts out an excellent 5.15v while under load with the game on at CN4 (CN6 per the original board connector name). By punching down the reproduction factory harness to CN4 I am now getting 5.13v at the display driver board. Problem drop kicked, sucker punched, and solved.

Yep, that's what I did. Worked just fine.

#500 8 months ago

I finally took the time this evening and put one of my spare TILT!Audio boards into my msf game. Took only a few minutes to replace and it plays very nice.

You may notice that there are a few more mods like extra leds in backbox speakers, big color pin2dmd and also the whole gi is rgb. But to be honest the biggest thrill is always the new sound. Of course I replaced the speakers as well to get more volume and clearer sound.
