iPhones cost hundred dollars to make and sell for 1300. As long as people pay it price won't change

False. An iPhone x is estimated to have $370.25 in parts, not counting assembly labor, packaging, shipping, marketing, R&D, etc. It's a big margin but a hundred bucks? Not even close.

FFS - for all the folks complaining about lighting on a new game, that has LEDs, and don't want to turn on a light but will spend hundreds on added "custom mod" lighting --- buy this to light up where the ball is..........

I think people think pinstadium is sold to folks who have trouble seeing the ball. For me at least I can see the ball fine. I would like to make the lightning on the pf more balanced so no dark spots bc I like the way it looks. You could almost say I have trouble seeing the pf!

As for the Aussy mailing his product to the states, there was a guy here in pinside who does mods and actually offered the same pinstadium product but reaction of the cost. Apparently he was pressured into stop selling them for whatever reason. I thought that was dumb as good competition is better for the consumer.

#1258 8 months ago

Maybe Steve at Pinball Refinery will come out with a more reasonably priced kit for it.

Monsters are supposed to be in the dark - not blindingly bright light

I don't get the current obsession with making games brighter and brighter, until your retinas go pop!

We’re all getting older. Harder to see the ball.

#1263 8 months ago

I hope we get to see some pics of LEs in new owners homes this week!

#1264 8 months ago

Everyone has an opinion, I personally think darkness is as important to light in effects and I find pinstadium too much. That being said I look forward to seeing my friend's Maiden with it but doubt it will get me on board. Cost is too high as well and I'd rather send that cash towards another colordmd or another pinsound.

#1268 8 months ago

Guy's. Just got Pinstadium installed. Agree it is a very dark game. Pic you see is with only 75% of Whites on. Scott (Pinstadium Owner) is a great guy. He helped me put these on yesterday. Different from AFMr instructions. He will be updating his Website. I highly recommend these. You can always get this guy on the Phone.

#1269 8 months ago

WHAT? Is that 2nd picture even real? lol. Way too bright, but I know you're just doing this to show the possible change.

I think 25% would be perfect. I'm going to be installing mine tomorrow, so I hope those instructions are good to go by then.

#1270 8 months ago

Its real. You can dummy them. Here is a pic at 30%. No whites make it all Blue. If his Website isn't updated PM me I can tell you what to do. You can also call Scott. Don't want to give his cell out but if you PM him he will call you.

When you take photos of LEDs, the camera can never capture the look as you see it in person - i bet this is way more extreme than it really looks

#1272 8 months ago

The great thing with the Pinstadium App is you can play with the Color Wheel and make it look however you want. Last pic I promise. This is all UV. Brightness 25%

#1273 8 months ago

This post is just one simple man's request to stop w/ the pinstadium stuff here.. I'll be sure to cover all the point counter points for future reference regardless of whatever side of the argument you're on.

MBr is too dark / That's just the camera, the lighting doesn't photograph well
Pinstadium makes it brighter / Cool, but I prefer the lighting as it was intended or a spot or two added instead.
Pinstadium makes it too bright or the colors don't look good / It's all adjustable via the cool mobile app
I lift the playfield up often and don't want anything in the way / It's just a magnet that easily removes

If you actually have something else to add, I'd be surprised.. everything else is just noise we've all heard before.

Now keep the pictures of new arrivals coming, and what #LE you have so we can keep up to date! Also, any more news on the scoop protector issues?

#1274 8 months ago
Quoted from mjpinballs:

Can you guys that get the early LE's post some pics and feedback?? It looks like mine is going to be next year...... Gives me some time to splain to the GF why I had to spend $12,000.00 (that's our cost here in the great white north) on another toy lol

So gotta ask... How do you lift the playfield with these on? Do you have to take these off? Will they reattach properly? What if you've got pinblades installed? Won't they ruin them if you have to take them off?
Ok.. Now back to Monster Bash remake

They are on magnets and you do have to remove them if you lift the playfield. I have a set on my Metallica and they do work good BUT as someone else stated a bit overpriced for what they are. I can't see the need on the MB with the upgraded lighting but to each their own.Enough of the free advertising for them - post some pics of the game or at least keep it ON TOPIC!!

He was joking

#1278 8 months ago

I mean..I don't really care one way or the other, to me the above IS a discussion for the game. People are expressing their opinions of extras that may or may not be needed. I find that useful. If there were other things to show/talk about it would be happening. It isn't.

More importantly though is the discussion around the protectors and if we need to order different ones.

#1279 8 months ago

So, where are people adding the extra spotlights? Anyone found any slick places that don’t look like shit and still do a good job of adding light? Some of those nifty spotlights from the Deadpool premiums would prolly be easy to hide!

#1280 8 months ago

My take on pinball protectors... Nice if you got them, great if installed day 1, and if they are getting beat up because you are playing your machine a lot... just wait till the honeymoon is over, replace the protectors and everything will be fine...

Unless this is your only machine, then you are pretty much screwed into keeping it pristine all the time, waxing it weekly, if it had tires, you would kick them and keep them inflated to exact company specs and change the oil every 3000 miles, rerubber it quarterly, replace the balls after every 200 games, have a custom dust cover made with matching title logos, check the playfield angle after every 10 plays, replace the leg levelers at the first signs of rust, keep the shades drawn, the lights dim, and avoid all direct light that might fade the artwork, powder coat all exposed metal in baby shit metalic flake transparent green, replace all GI lamps with color cycling LEDs, replace all tungsten lamps with LEDs, over pay for a custom, one of a kind Halloween decoration topper with glowing eyes and pay to replace your driver board after shorting it out while trying to install the topper without turning off the power, over pay for a stair crawling appliance dolly to climb the three steps up your front porch, buy every mod and semi-bling item you can find on Pinball Life, Marco Specialties, Planetary Pinball, Lermods, the Modfather, and every mod you can find from tom, dick, or harry and even including the spanish guy developing a hologram mod for a machine you don’t even own, have your livingroom repainted and redecorated to match the theme of your machine, plus buy every non-pinball machine related item that even remotely ties in to the theme of your machine, buy a mousepad and poster of the backglass, have the artwork tatooed onto the back of your freshly waxed backside, after paying the local landscaper $50 to weedwack your heavily overgrown manscaped behind, get the machine’s sales flyer matted and framed and hung up on the wall next to it, buy every machine specific part that may never actually fail and place them in storage for all eternity, but a second machine and keep in locked NIB in a windowless undisclosed location warehouse to be used to resurect the original machine if it happens to get a little leg curl on the cabinet decal which you found during your yearly cabinet decal leg curl discovery expedition. Yeah, pin ownership has it’s foibles...

Look, that's all great advice if you plan to just trash your machine. But me, I'm planning to take good care of my pin. Sheesh - some guys just don't take care of their things.

My Special Edition arrived !!!

https://photos.app.goo.gl/QYfU5yE8kN3eaegU8

All I can say is WOW! This is a TON of fun!

It is FAST! Ball save of 3 seconds is a must for me!

Adjust the strength of the upkicker of the hole ... it flys out at blinding speed!

Yes the hole protector is already banged up after about 20 games... but not horribly.

It’s super colorful!!! The RGB effect is spectacular!!! It’s plenty bright for me... but I don’t play in a dark room. If it were in a dark room... when it cycles to blue or low light... for some...they may want a little bit more light in the lower playfield area... HOWEVER I only see this effect in attract mode... not during play.. there is just so much going on.

Not much to critique... I was one of those guys that thought he wanted a playfield protector... no friggin way... the amount of disassembly needed to install it ...in itself isn’t worth it! Just play the damned thing and enjoy!!!

Man I wonder what the story is with the protector? Do the CGC games come with real Cliffys, or are they a CGC special? The thin line protector seems like it’s actually a better protector than the original one

Man I don’t know ... the ball action is crazy in that area. There are a ton of different shots in a small area ... lots of mini air balls in the upper playfield. It’s really fast !

#1288 8 months ago

As long as the hole protector doesnt damage the ball, I say let it dent away, but put a scratch on a ball within 20 plays, now we need to talk... scratched up balls and balls with a nick can do some nasty surface damage pretty quickly.

#1293 8 months ago

I turned down the pops and the flippers to minimum strength. Gameplay seems chaotic at full strength. The center target almost always causes an air ball... its much better at min setting, the ball seems to be staying at a lower altitude now.

Did you just wax the playfield? Fresh wax can cause a speed up until it wears down.

Quoted from seenev:

No I didn't wax the playfield... I'm surprised other people who have these wouldn't consider this adjustment. I mean... it really throws the ball hard. I am using silverjet balls, not the factory balls that came with the machine.

#1298 8 months ago

I got my email today for payment due on MBrLE #240! It will be on location next to big brother AFMrLE at The Flipper Room in Concord, CA. Unboxing/setup photos will be posted.

Quoted from Bublehead:

get the machine’s sales flyer matted and framed and hung up on the wall next to it

BTW...The Flipper Room is located within a full service picture framing facility (APF - The Art of Picture Framing). If you're in Northern California, come on by to play some pins and get your pinball related items, or anything else, framed!

#1299 8 months ago
Quoted from PtownPin:

pinstadium product looks pretty nice, but its not $250 nice....I just added spot lights from comet on my WOZ and TZ....worked perfect...

Thats what I do if/when a pin is too dark. Plus I can still lift my playfield.

Generally, you install spotlights at the lower post on the slingshots. Many pins come this way from the factory, so if you elect to add some it doesn't even look like a mod.
