Quoted from KozMckPinball:

My insert list (the number of inserts on the pf, not amount I ordered) :
1) Pink - 9 #555 1SMDT10PFT (purple)
2) Red - 18 #555 1SMDT10RFT
3) Blue - 6 #555 1SMDT10BFT and Ice Blue #555 1SMDT10IBFT and Ice Blue #44 1SMDT10IBFT bayonet
4) Green - 7 #555 1SMDT10GFT and #44 1SMDBA49SGFT bayonet
5) Orange - 7 #555 1SMDT10AFT
6) Yellow - 10 or 12 #555 1SMDT10YFT
7) White - 0 or 2
I bought insert bulbs Comet P/N example for Red 1SMDT10RFT, these are #555 (wedge) frosted. #44 is a bayonet bulb. I bought all frosted.
I bought a 25 pack 5050 frosted warm white #44 bayonet. 1SMDBA49SWWFT
I bought a 25 pack 5050 frosted natural white #555 wedge. 1SMDT10NWFT
I bought a 25 pack 5050 frosted warm white #555 wedge. 1SMDT10WWFT
Most people leave backbox bulbs as incandescent, but here's my misc bulbs list as well:
Twin 2835 frosted Red #555 wedge. 2SMD2835T10RFT (ordered 4)
Twin 2835 frosted Warm White #555 wedge. 2SMD2835T10WWFT (ordered 10)
2 SMD Fluted Dome Warm White #44 bayonet. 2SMDBA9SWWFD (ordered 13)
5 SMD 5050 Tower #906 Warm White (flashers) wedge. 5SMDFLASHT10WW (ordered 12)
8 SMD #906 FLASHER Warm White wedge. 8SMDT15WEDGEWW (ordered 2)
OPTIX MAXIMUS Sunlight White #44 bayonet. OPMAXBA9SS (ordered 4)
OPTIX MAXIMUS Sunlight White #555 wedge. OPMAXT10S (ordered 4)
Order total was about $150. OldPinGuy suggested using Sunlight White so I bought some and the OPMAX as options, along with higher SMD flasher to install and see if I liked them but for me the default was 1SMD Warm Whites and color matched inserts. Some people suggested 2SMD so I bought a few to test with to see if I liked them.
So in short, the misc list you don't have to order. Decide if you want color matched inserts, 2SMD or 1 SMD, Warm White or Sunlight White for GI and flasher brightness on the playfield and whether to use LEDs or incandy in the backbox for flashers. You probably don't need 3 25 packs of GI bulbs like I ordered, maybe only 2 needed, but they are only $16.25 per pack and I wanted to experiment with different GI whites.
Good Luck. Some suppliers might sell pre-packaged LED kits as an option to this.

Thanks a lot for the list and your time!

Quoted from dasmico:

its been stated you cant get 3 because the Chicago programmers have made it impossible. ive had everything ready but found it will not let you start one of the multiballs required while on your 3rd ring attempt. Confirmed by pinside user FreeGoldWatch. also in online rulesheet.
must be a feature of the linked fastbreak rom being different / modded.

Just wanted to clarify in case this wasn’t answered, that this is simply not the case and not true at all.

What happens after two rings is, it’s harder to get around the world multiball to start.

Rings 1-2, if a ball dribbles into one of the four saucers at random, will light up the plastic dome above the saucer, making it easier to start around the world multiball.

On rings 3-4, you have to roll into either the left or right inlane “in the paint” (by ramp makes it easiest) , then you have a couple seconds to hit the left or right orbit shot to start “pass the ball” mode, to manually light all 4 saucers. A random fall into a saucer out of this mode will not light up the saucer beyond two rings, thus making it more difficult to start that multiball and not allowing “trophy multiball”

Hi. I bought this game about a month ago. I just noticed that the pop bumpers that count the power hoops dont roll from ball to ball, so every ball I have to start over with three point power shot after 23 pop bumper hits. It just started and now cant get to a ring mode. Also the in the paint at the left ramp doesnt register anytime my ball rolls over it. How do I fix that. I am a newbie to this hobby and want to learn. Love the game. Thanks

Just joined the club a few weeks ago. Bought it from a fellow pinsider.

Adding this pin has now Filled my new Gameroom Wall of Pins!!! I'm glad I got this game right now instead of World Cup Soccer . I grew up watching the Bulls during the Jorden/Pippen/Armstrong years while playing NBA JAM. I'm in the honeymoon phase right now.

I noticed that I have intermittent weak Plunger strength. Every now and then I would hit the shoot button, but the ball would only travel 1/2 way up and back down... It would take a 2-3 attempts. The immediate instinct is a faulty coil... Anyone experience this and can tell me their solution to this problem?

Hello everyone,
Looking for some help with a very basic question for someone who is very inexperienced. Thought I would ask the question here first before calling a pinball tech. On my NBAFB my left shooter stopped working. I noticed that a wire has broken off. Is it as simple as re-soldering it? I attached a picture. Thanks in advance on any tips.

#256 5 months ago

Yup, strip that wire and solder it back on.

#258 5 months ago

Has anybody seen a plastic for guard in front of the hoop. Im missing the guy that blocks your shot on the bracket. Also during ball launch the ball flys off the ramp is there a guard to keep it from jumping up in the air off the launch

#259 5 months ago

Been scratching my head on the lamp matrix being all out of whack for 3 days now and figured it out. Can anybody tell me why in the paint 2 and 3 were missing the diode for the lamp. Checked it out and seen 1 and 4 had a blue butt connecter tied into the wire with a diode crimped into it. Looked up on marcos and seen they sell it like that??? Can anybody take pics of under there playfield.

I am pretty new to pinball and pinside, but I couldn't find anything on this topic, so sorry if it has been discussed before...

Has anyone ever tried/thought about modding the code to this game to update the "TRIVIA" section with new questions and answers for present day NBA stats? I have a background in coding, but no experience with how to mod pinball code, but would be happy to work with someone on this. I think it would be pretty fun to update based on present day players/stats/etc

Could even change some team names: Vancouver -> Memphis.

I feel like if you could search the code for "Vancouver" and do a global find/replace with "Memphis" it would work?

Similarly, if you found where the trivia questions were stored in the code, you could just replace all the text/multiple choice answers for each trivia question with new ones.

You need feedback from the Pinball Browser creator/users. I believe that the code is in a compiled state (binary) only in shipped form like other software. For Pinball Browser, the music files could still be identified in the compiled format and replaced wholesale file for file same size. Not certain that the trivia would have been objectified like that, meaning an easy file swap. Maybe if the trivia was resourced for multiple languages it would have been set up that way, as resource files, but as such, English only, probably not. I am just an outsider looking in, just my 2 cents.

I don't think pinball browser works with rom based games?

You could try editing some using a hex editor and test in pinMame? I think they have a checksum so not sure how much you can change before that fails.

Could somebody shed some light on how this plastic attaches with a pic

I think that's just a keychain.

#266 4 months ago

Yeah, I have that and figured it was for keys.

#267 4 months ago

I thought it was for keys also until i seen this pic and questioned it.

Hey NBA FBers, has anyone gotten their game stuck in shoot around multiball? I updated my ROM to 3.1 from Matt's Basement arcade and now whenever you get shoot around multiball it stays in that mode, even after the multiball ends. I don't think it's a trough/ball recognition issue as it stops correctly after the 2nd ball drains. I'm just wondering if it's a settings change or something. Thanks!

#269 4 months ago

Im running the same version and do not have that issue

Thanks for the info! I ended up just switching back to my 2.3 code and it works fine again. Is it a selection in the settings for some reason? Oh well, works fine with the older code.

I had 3 different shape and colors for the 3PT targets so i just soldered in new orange ones. Purple was not available but im going to be putting on cushioned target decals that are orange so its not that big of a deal imo. Thoughts?

I replaced my purple targets recently, and they were challenging to find. I think the orange look good!

#274 3 months ago

Can I ask that someone with a NBAFB game to see if their sling switches made a double beep when activated during game play? I have a limited game set, with a modern stern and an AFM Remake only, so can't test that. Been doing all sorts of troubleshooting.

I have the coil disconnected so you can hear the beep easily in the video link below. You can hear it with the coil on in normal game play. It's not that audible, but gets annoying at ever hit.

Thank you.

Hi Guys need a little help with a bizarre issue on this game.Me and pinsider Kredmore(his post right above mine) are trying to figure out the slingshot tone/sound are correct or not... Thanks Mike

Have you checked the spacing between the nodes on the switch. Maybe it could be making double contact if its sticking or to tight.

Just put in purple led flipper buttons. They def can get bright but look way better in person. Strobe, pulse,intensity, and solid with each one being adjustable.

Looks alright but I think orange or red would have looked nicer as it would work with the theme a bit more.

Was replacing the flippers yesterday and noticed this was cut off. Should be a C shape. I tried searching but didnt have much luck. Anyone know the part number or replacement thats equivalent for this thin metal piece that acts as a spring back.

#296 3 months ago

Would really like it, but haven't heard anything lately...

#297 3 months ago

In fact, I work in software, so reached out to see if I could offer my team's help for the NBAFB ColorDMD updates. Never heard back.

Heh, figures after I just moved my ColorDMD from Star Trek (since I'm selling it) to my Demo Man. Looks like DemoMan is going back to an orange DMD. Looks like the ROM is being released on Friday.
