If an extra ball is kicked out, it has to be a trough switch issue. Tug on the wires. I had a very similar issue with my Congo. There were no loose wires but one slid right out of the solder when pulled.

I've decided just to mylar around the sparky magnet. I've got a spare magnet core that I can trace around to get an exact circle cut out. Should I put the mylar all the way up to sparkys feet or just cut a smaller circle to go around the magnet?

You can also get an exact circle by cutting it out while it's installed over the magnet. Just use the space between the magnet and the playfield as the guide for your exacto knife.

I only did a circle around the magnet.

Pinball life sells Mylar circles for the magnet cores. i just bought some

#9455 2 years ago

Yep I did the same. I've got all my little protectors and a new metal post and even a topper. Just waiting for my game from Pinball Refinery dying of anticipation!

What topper did you get?

I have a dumb question... I've been looking at the lower third of playfields - flippers, inlanes and outlanes, drain, etc. I really like Metallica's double left inlane, but I can't figure out how the hell they fit it all in there. The standard cabinet is 27" wide, Metallica's cabinet is 27" wide. The flipper gap on Metallica seems to be the standard flipper gap.

The standard Stern layout is this: http://pinballmakers.com/wiki/images/9/92/Stern_c_size.pdf

Having trouble figuring out where they squeezed in an extra inlane without changing the flipper gap or making the playfield wider. I'm thinking they shoved the shooter lane all the way to the edge and moved the right flipper assembly over?

If nobody just knows I'll have to just measure my game when it comes haha

The slings are adjusted for the difference. I measured the difference between MET/KISS (same) and TSPP.

Ahhhh, so are the slings more narrow, or did they slide them closer together? Maybe a little of each. Thank you for measuring for such a silly question. I'm considering a similar inlane setup for a game I hope to build, so I was wondering how they changed their standard layout to fit the extra inlane in.

#9460 2 years ago

Well after accidentally starting a two player game I decided to play it out.

And by doing so I have a new GC score. Player2 for the win. Lol. Completed 4 crank it up modes and had the "score" crank it up lit on last ball. Closest I've come to end of the line.

After ball one:

Maybe a little of each. It looks like the same dimensions/setup on TAF, as well. I'm sure there are a lot more games with this same setup.

I was installing the pinbits plastic protectors on the slings. Do you take off those big plastic washers and not use them? There was 3 of them.

Yes ,
It also allows the the nut on top to grab the threads of the post .

Thanks! I assume those were the factory plastic protectors?

#9467 2 years ago
Quoted from pcprogrammer:

Awesome. I thought I remembered seeing a picture on pinside of the EXACT spots the holes are supposed to be drilled. I looked around and couldn't find the thread it was in. It showed the measurements of where to drill. If anyone remembers where that pic is, please post it. I think it was the spots Stern drills them, or used to drill them, from the factory.

This thread is getting so long it keeps getting lost. Posting the pic here for you.

Thanks for the pics! Anyone have a hard time loosening the sparky magnet? Turning counter clockwise, can't budge it.

You need a wrench to loosen that huge nut.

#9471 2 years ago

I got the nut off. Just a little tight. Amazing how fast the sparky magnet gets beat up. I have the extended protector on now so we'll see how the new one looks after a few hundred more plays. People say to wax before putting the mylar down, but the one time I did it the mylar looked a little bit discolored, like it wasn't as clear as it should have been. Not sure if waxing before is the best idea. Does the mylar pattern look good?

My Metallica PRO was supposed to be delivered today.....lost by Fedex

#9473 2 years ago

LOST!? That's astounding. Also astounding it's not the first time I've heard of this.

#9476 2 years ago

How can they lose a 300 LB., 5ft. tall box. lol

#9477 2 years ago

Driver took it home
How the hell do you loose a refrigerator size box that has already been confirmed for delivery ?
Unbelievable !

#9478 2 years ago

And maybe true. lol

#9480 2 years ago

Kind of but not really..

Sorry man

#9481 2 years ago

Thanks for the kind words guys! How they can "lose" a 300-350lb package is unbelievable! The good thing is that Chris at Cointaker is my distro and he is aware of the situation. I truly believe someone stole it....

I just wanted to show off a couple new metallica PinCups. The silver and grey one is done in a distressed finish to mimic the cabinet style for the MET premium. The other one is done with a fade from silver , orange and dark red. This one looks great on the MOPLE. They are clearcoated for extra shine and durability. I hope you guys like them. They are available on my website. Modfatherpinball.com

Don't worry. You will have to wait longer but you will get it. I would keep calling them about it, though. Let them know the cost of the item, size, and all that.

Got word yesterday my Refinery Metallica Pro will be finished next week and hopefully shipping then too. Really hoping to be playing it by next Friday, but I understand if it takes until the following week.

I'm not great at waiting. I've watched Keith Elwin's End of the Line video 10 times since I ordered the game.

#9493 2 years ago

Hey Kornfreak..shitty about your pin! But I stayed home from work to play Metallica(for u!) & thought of another mod you are gonna wanna do!! Haha..but, change the songs! I realize I cant stand enter sandman and about 5 others if I want to keep er for a while! Anyone have new song list suggestions they've made fit?! I know they need to be same length & some need to stay on there..just think a change is needed!

If I ever get my Metallica....I would LOVE to add The Shortest Straw......

#9495 2 years ago

Leper Messiah would be a sweet one too, but I'll probably not mod the game's songs.

Another song that I think would really compliment the game is...Pulling Teeth (Anesthesia)

Shortest Straw fits perfectly in the Unforgiven slot.

That's sooo cool! Hopefully when (if) I get my machine delivered I can add Shortest Straw to it...hope it's not too difficult

Does color DMD support the name change of the songs on the display?

Yes. Song names are basic one color text. The name changes will change to whatever color the other titles are.
