Quoted from HoakyPoaky:

i got so tired of looking for a NIB Premium for the last month, so I finally pulled the trigger & placed my order with Steve for a pimped out MET LED Pro Pinball Refinery Edition. Won't be long now until I "officially" join the club Can't wait!

I picked up my Metallica from Steve last weekend. Steve did an amazing job on my Metallica Pro. I wish I could of added even more mods but ran out of money doing so. I saw your machine sitting there being worked on. You'll love it he does great work.

Quoted from Adios:

That looks great! I got a monster green one to put as my captive ball. I got to wait till I get my playfield back from stern to put it in. I still need to send the playfield to them first but I haven't had time to remove and ship it out. Was it hard to install the power ball?

Super easy install. Took a couple minutes. I wanted something non magnetic there so I could play with the magnet settings. Regular ball would sometimes magentize.

So far I like the way it plays.

Just did!

Looks like I will have one next week. First NIB for me.

Nope. Is it all that and a bag of chips?

But how will it stand up to the hard impacts, without it moving to lessen the impact of the hit it could get destroyed. Time will tell.

#3760 4 years ago

I finally fixed my drop targets today... I had the common issue of them not dropping if hit hard. I moved the springs up on the hooks about 18 windings based on info posted here. That initially seemed to work, then the targets starting resetting 3 times and staying down (another issue I've read about). I backed the springs about halfway and the targets are working great now.

I noticed the springs in mine were blue, the ones in the machine posted here were red. Not sure if that indicates a different tension or not. This was just one of those minor annoyances I put up with for too long. It didn't really start bothering me until I got a feel for the rules and could tell how bad the game was ripping me off.

#3761 4 years ago

I know the information is in this thread somewhere but I have been through 30 pages and cant seem to find it. Can someone please direct me to the link to buy the best sparky protector plastic? (the yellow web one?) Thanks.

You can order it from Pinbits. They don't show a picture of it but in the description the sparky protector is included. Just ordered this set recently and received all three pieces.

#3763 4 years ago

Guys I'm hoping someone can help me here. I've had this issue from day one with my Met Prem and I guess I'm just not smart enough to know how to fix it. My very left outlane constantly traps the ball (about where the last of the 3 stand up targets is, but of course to the left of those targets in the outlane) Unless the ball is just FLYING it gets stopped there every time and I have to take the glass off and push on the metal railing to get it to release the ball. How can I fix this or is this a defect since it was like this new out of the box? Any suggestions/tips are greatly appreciated!!!

#3764 4 years ago

Please post a picture of the spot where the ball gets stuck

#3765 4 years ago

I want an LED OCD for me MET just so the Crank It Up pulse on the 4 big inserts will look nicer.

I might have a problem.

Maybe I should just put colored incandescent bulbs in those inserts.

That is the one I have on mine and you do indeed get the plastic protectors and sparky protector. You can even request different colors if you email them.

#3767 4 years ago

I requested the clear protector. Mine is plain, no spiderwebs. I got the green sling protectors. I'll be honest, they're cool looking, but too much. Going to take them off my game. Just not a fan of how the color is so dominant on the playfield. Nothing wrong with the quality or design.

If I can every find enough free time to finish up this Metallica mod I've been working on I have new plans for the slingshots anyways, so not big deal for me.

#3768 4 years ago

Took off green sling protectors after I got the clear Pinbits set.

#3769 4 years ago

I drilled holes in my sling protectors where the eyeballs are. Now they look much better because they are lit by white light not green.

#3770 4 years ago

I saw that pic you posted a while back MustangPaul. Definitely a big improvement for keeping the green and some of the original plastic color. That's my primary beef with colored GI in general... I'd rather see the color of the plastics come through.

#3771 4 years ago

Finally joined today. Built 6/9 so not even a week old. Found these playfield numbers interesting. Just playfield numbers of a lot?

Love the game and can't believe I didn't care for it when it came out. It really was polished with the more recent code. FWIW this came with 1.64 code which is needs than the 1.63 Stern has in their site.

Might just be a minor update for the LED Pros, since they have options for the lighting.

#3773 4 years ago

My LED Pro build on April 9th has 1.63 on it.

I think you mean left orbit, not left outlane. The outlanes are where your ball drains on the outside.

My ball was getting stuck in the left orbit, as well. I simply pushed on the wireguide in that area, and it hasn't gotten stuck again since. I've only played about five games since then, so we'll see if that was the solution.

#3775 4 years ago

Just a quick heads up, I will be putting my MetPro up for sale sometime this week soon. Lots of goodies on this one.

You can put my name in the "Find posts in this topic" search bar at the top of this page to see a good number of the things that have been done to this machine.

As usual, I'll be putting up a thorough thread with a good 30+ pictures and a video of two of gameplay.

Look for it soon.

#3776 4 years ago

So what's the consensus (or is there one)? Should I be asking pinbits for the clear slingshot protectors or does the green work with the cut out below the eyes? Is there another colour to try that might work better? And the sparky protector just the default (yellow/green?) looks ok?

Well I was interested in the pinbits protectors but now I'll wait for your MOD.....some more Hook it up dude!!

Red might look good, then the flames behind the eyeball would be red.

Man, you don't keep games very long do you......LOL. Seriously, GLWS, but you won't need it, this shouldn't last long at all. NPO is definitely one of the good guys. Buy with confidence.

#3781 4 years ago

Can you post a pic of your with the green having been cut out by the eyes. I that looks good I might just go with the green. I'd try red but without seeing it first I dunno.

It would be done if I wasn't a crazy person and agreed to do Alien. Now it's hard to find time to do my own projects. I got an ACDC Premium finally and have new ideas for that too ...

Don't worry, soon as I have free time Metallica is the priority. I took my LE to a league meetup the other weekend with my current prototype installed and people were digging it.

You are right, I meant the left orbit, sorry. And I've pushed on the wireguide and it fixed the problem for a little while. But it gets stuck shortly there after (say maybe 15-30 games later) Just becoming a real pain and I don't know how to fix it.

I wonder what the difference is? There is no 1.64 on the stern site. This sounds interesting. Congrats with the game lots of fun!

I agree. Simple and cheap mod that has a nice effect. ..

#3792 4 years ago

Quick suggestion for a possible code update....

Can we get a 1 or 2 second ball save on the left outlane when you shoot behind the piston targets?!?! Damn its frustrating to (finally) make the shot and have it bounce back down into the inlanes and then bounce directly to the left outlane.

Anyone made adjustments to keep this from happening?

#3793 4 years ago

always be nudging :/

A nice forward/forward-right nudge typically keeps the ball away from that outlane. It's dangerous, that's for sure.
