Howdy crew,

Would someone do me a favor and check one of the settings in the menu to see if, it reacts the same as mine, and tell me what the purpose is perhaps...

In the diagnostics menu under game specific options there is the option to change the intensity of the RGB for the playfield arrows. I can change the brightness for all three channels and accept them, but when I back out of the menu, it changes the setting back to 100%.

#17252 16 days ago

I can check when I get home tonight. do you happen to know the setting no for this?

Quoted from pinhi:

Got mine from HankScorpio (pinmods) a couple years ago. He may still make them?

Are these suitable for a MOPLE?

On another note has anyone powdercoated their MOPLE in any color other than the stock silver? I’d love to see pics

Quoted from BillySastard:

Check the Cliffy protector that is on the left. It almost looks like it's sitting over the shooter lane so that the ball doesn't sit properly in the shooter lane.

Sorry, I didn't see that anyone had replied to me. Can you please be a little more specific? I didn't install the Cliffy, and new to all this, so I'm not really sure what could be creating the ball to not sit properly.

Quoted from embryon:

If it's the shaker pcb, I replaced the transistor twice and it blew both times. Only once I swapped it for a new pcb the problem has gone. So maybe contact stern

After reading this, I took your advice. Marco had a new board in stock, so i ordered it. I also repaired the current board. I guess now i have a back up....

Just wanted to throw a shout out to Sparky for a killer product with his Micro Display. Superb as always. Really ties the room together.

+1 for ease and awesomeness.

The Cliffy protector is the thin piece of metal that sits on the right side of the shooter lane, where the ball ejects out of the trough. Check to make sure that it's not sitting over the shooter lane. It needs to sit flush with the flat part of the wood, but not past that and over the grooves. If it's too far to the right it will impede the ball from shooting straight. Hope that explanation helps.

Anyone have an EOS Left flipper issue on this game, and how did they go about fixing it short of a flipper rebuild kit?

I posted about these on the previous page toward the top. You can find them in my Pinside Shop or on Mezelmods.

What kind of issue?

Hi Rob,

It appears as if the left flipper is a touch slow as a result of it. Honestly, I was just going to wait till the rebuild kit arrived to fix the issue, but was hoping for an interim solution.

I'm not sure the EOS is your problem by that description. If you want, I can stop by and take a look.

Hi Rob,

I actually did a full flipper rebuild this weekend. The error is now gone. I had no idea how long it would take for the kit to arrive and just wanted an interim solution. Thanks for the offer!

Sorry if this has been asked in the past, but two things have always bugged the hell out of me about this game. Has anyone done anything as far as updating or programming to make songs selectable between balls, or made it so that the songs don't play in a continuous loop before shooting the ball? I noticed that on newer music themed games like IMDN these two things aren't an issue.

#17267 5 days ago

I reflowed the power connector on the board underneath the machine to solve my disappearing GI light issue but it seems to have returned after about 3 weeks. has anyone experienced this and what was their fix?

I replaced the power connector for this board on my game. Premium right?

Rob

#17269 5 days ago

I replaced the 2x white flashers bulbs with blue at the top of the grave yard and near the rising cross. Made it less blinding.

yep, it's a premium. did you replace the male post part soldered to the board or the wired end (re-terminating the wires)?

Not as far as i know.

Any idea why the snake and electric chair lights would be out on every shot except the left loop? It is a Premium. All fuses look good and I did not have any loose connections on the boards. Here is a video:

Quoted from Rickwh:

You have the newer “metal back box” Met. Met came both with wooden backbox and metal. The metal ones are newer and they switched to that in 2014 or so. Metal back boxes don’t have t molding across the front. I think the two holes are supposed to have rubber stoppers cause that corresponds to where the head rests on the cab side rails.

So do we know where those rubber stoppers can be bought? I don't see anything on Marcos. And I too have empty holes and scraped paint in lieu of two little pieces of rubber.

Will any of these work? I have wooden backbox so nothing to compare to.

Pinwoofer kit. It’s kind of expensive but definitely worth it.

#17281 2 days ago

Spinners, knocker, and lit drops for the pro are nice too

Subwoofer. This enhances game play. Visual mods are cool, when you are just looking at it.

All of those inserts that are not working are controlled by the RGB LED driver board under the playfield. Failure of the power connector is a common problem.

PinWoofer Super Kit is a must for Metallica Pin, or any other music pin for that matter.The Clarity from the backbox speakers, along with that Kick ass Sub, brings it all together the way it should be heard ! Clear and Loud !!Much better to have the whole package enclosed inside the Pin, instead of a clunky Sub under the Cabinet, Dan will take care of you every step of the way, and follows up just to make sure all is well ! the product is Grade A along with the Customer Service Before, During, and After the sale !!

I used translucent drop targets.

I also added a translucent orange target

Nice. Got a pic of the lit translucent? I issued eyeball target for piston target.

Nice. I also think Zitt sells white translucent targets. I used eyeball target for piston target.
