I get this question a lot about whether Pin Stadiums will work with older classic machines, like EM's etc. Absolutely and they are very effective. I find the warm white settings in the app are best for these machines. Game changer for sure!!

Great products!!

Hmm, up until now I have not been critical, and even supported of your business practices, but have to say that these discounts kind of make me feel a bit foolish. It's been just about a month since I purchased 2 Fusions and also have 2 Hovers already on order. If I had just waited a month, I could have had the Hovers for free. OK, so sales/discounts happen and you can miss out due to bad timing, that's the way things go, but to also see that now a discount is available for the Hovers when they haven't even started shipping yet is kinda...irksome. Especially since the magna-mounts are failing on my machines in a big way and really need the Hovers asap. I want to support the business and have been singing its praises to anyone who will listen, but also feel like I'm kinda getting penalized for it. Honestly, it's not really about the money I'd save and I'm not asking for anything here, but maybe just consider how things affect current costumers and not just new ones?

Good point and by no means was this intentional in anyway. I corrected this and have made the single order Hover discount of 15% no longer apply on the Pintastic special.

I normally run occasional specials and discounts with big shows like Pintastic, etc which occur just a few times a year.

Also, if you anyone has an order of Pin Stadiums or Fusions along with a Hover combination on the same order and is waiting on those to ship from the first run of the Hovers. Any of these current orders from today on will go out after the first run ships from early customers who have first ship order priority. It pays to be an early adopter for sure. Please email me and I will gladly apply the discount to those. I think that is only fair too!! Email is scott@pinstadium.com

Quoted from PinRob:

I kinda feel the same way (Fooled). I ordered the regular PinStadium a long time ago and haven’t even installed it as I’m waiting for the Hover order to mount them which as far as I know hasn’t even shipped yet. Had I just waited and ordered everything at once I could have got the $50 Hover for Free. Kinda a slap in the face to the early purchasers of Hover. I think I’m out on anything further at this point. Disappointing IMO

The discount mentioned for "free Hover" is applicable to those who order a Pin Stadium or Fusion with a Hover kit this weekend. It is free in the sense that you get a 15% discount on Fusions ($67.50) or Pin Stadiums ($49) and Hovers buy themselves are $49. I show that you ordered only the Hovers, but if you want to upgrade your previous order of Hovers from the first run and buy a Pin Stadium or Fusion then that would be absolutely fine with me! I will honor it for you also, no problem at all. Send me an email also

#4859 5 months ago

I have to agree with the others. When an item is brand new and hasn't even shipped yet, then putting a sudden discount or bundle saving on it without extending it to those that have "pre-ordered" is taboo. Everyone that has already ordered now feels punished for early ordering, whether there is a shipping queue or not.

You would have been better off not putting any type of discount on a new product until all current orders are fulfilled and then after some time at that. Discounting a brand new item when you haven't shipped to the others who have already ordered looks bad and feels bad no matter how you look at it.

I love your product and your support, but sometimes you need to look at how things might affect current customers before you reward someone who isn't a customer yet.

As always I appreciate the feedback and am addressing this for anyone that would like to do that and email me per the above. Also if you want to add anything to your order and already have an early Hover order in I will give you Free Shipping too. Glad to help!!

Hi there,

We just got an IM Premium with pin stadium already installed and the flasher is hooked under the board to the location shown earlier in this thread.

In the picture attached to my post it says the new location is better for the LE, would this apply to the premium as well?

Ultimately I will move this Pin Stadium to our Twilight Zone and get the PS Fusion for IM.

Thanks for your help!

You can really put it anywhere that you would like, but most prefer on the LE or Premium to connect the flasher to the location that you have shown in your picture. It works extremely well and creates quite the light show each time the Pharoah target gets hit. Pretty cool!!

I'm a bit confused. Are you saying that you will honor this discount on existing orders of Fusions that have not shipped yet?

#4865 5 months ago

Yes if you have a Hover first production run Hover order already placed prior.

Quoted from Cheeks:

The Pintastic sale is still in effect (now through Sunday only) for the Hovers in combination with the Pin Stadiums or Fusions. Use code "pintastic19" at checkout.

The difference you are referring to is only a variance of 5% (which is $2.49 lol) from the other discount codes that are out there, lol!

No problem glad to help. The nice thing about the Pin Stadium UV+Glow flasher is you can put it anywhere you like and easily move it. Let us know if you what you decide as it's always good to hear feedback on user preferences. It will help other Iron Maiden owners that have the Pin Stadiums or Fusions.

#4870 5 months ago

I had a few questions about the recommended Deadpool location for the UV+Glow (Pro/Premium/LE). I hope this helps out the DP owners also.

Some are still not completely sure how the Hover work and there are so many posts on this lively thread that I am posting this up here. It goes in depth on the features, design, and function of the Hovers: https://pinstadium.com/product/hover/

#4872 5 months ago

Also the Pin Stadium website has been updated with improved navigation of products. Prior it was not super friendly to search for products like the Fusions and other accessories. Here is the new link to the shop's recently completed main page of categories: https://pinstadium.com/shop/

Thank you all for the input and feedback on the website. This has made it a much better experience for everyone!!

I am working on many other aspects of the site also and will continue to improve it on a weekly basis. I wonder what version code the website would be on technically with all of these updates? Lol

This customer shared a really great Before and After of Stern Pirates of the Caribean with the Pin Stadium Pinball LED lighting kit installed.

The UV+Glow on this is triggered by the sinking ship flasher for a very incredible light show when it is destroyed. This is a great tip for POTC owners out there.

Hey that’s really nice of you to reach out here like that and I always appreciate seeing you on the streams too along with some good chats via email.

You are sincerely a great supporter of Pin Stadium and pinball in general. By the way I loved the ACNC footage you helped to provide for our friends Zach and Greg at SDTM in their recent episode too!!

And yes I do sleep, but very very little. Don’t let all the fancy videos and graphics fool you. It’s still little old me in the Pin Stadium factory burning the midnight oil willingly and loving it.

#4876 5 months ago

You don’t see these very often and may be one the first ones I have posted with the Pin Stadiums.

I was bummed that I didn’t wait for the discount and then realized I got a 10% lol . So no big .

#4879 5 months ago

Iron Man does extremely well with the Pin Stadiums! The UV+Glow on the right ranp flasher fires off when you hit each of the drone targets for quite the show. That’s the best place I found for the trigger. Iron Man is very popular for customers to order the Pin Stadiums for. I highly recommend it.

Can you give me the color numbers and intensity for the Diamond White setting? I think I missed that mark on my Maiden.

Quoted from javagrind888:

Yes the Diamond White is the RGB turned to 0% and the white at 100% in the Pin Stadium app. It’s the quality and design of the custom chip that is already embedded onto the light bars. Here is how to customize it on the Fusion.

Hey guys, if you are at Pintastic with a game and either have Pinstadium’s or would like to buy a set I would like you in the booth. I will install them for you. I will also give you one of my Interactive Undercab Kits or Game On Systems free.

Hello PS,

Is there any way to control the intensity of the flashers (standard pin stadium)? I'd like to turn them down a bit as it's so stunning playing in the dark it's easy to lose track of things during hectic multi-balls.

Thanks again for your fun product.

Mike,

I’m regards to flasher brightness control:

The flashers are driven by the pinball machine and the brightness is determined by how the machine pulses them.

The general rule is that if the pulse is short and fast then the characteristic behavior of the LED is to load fast and then fade quickly thus resulting in a bright flash. In the scenario that the pulse is slow then the effect is more of a softer glow. Different machines pulse differently and inside of those machines each flasher is controlled uniquely too.

I always suggest moving it around to one that you feel is appropriate for your tastes. Most find after a couple days of installing the Pin Stadiums they get acclimated to the brightness of the UV+Glow too. Also you can always disconnected them also. I hope that helps!

The Fusions do allow you to adjust the brightness and colors of the flashers, and has 4 additional Wifi controllable ones: https://pinstadium.com/product/pin-stadium-fusion/

By the way in 20 minutes you will get to see Pin Stadiums on Willy Wonka "live" on the FlipNout Pinball stream hosted by Ken and Bill from Special When Lit. This will be a great demonstration on the incredible results on this machine, it's a much have. Even better Jack is going to on the phone live too!!!

Check it out at 8pm EST/7pm CST

How do you typically hook up your flashers? I think I may have shorted one with the alligator clips, which in turn has damaged some transistors Could also be coincidence

Quoted from mandelbloom:

This is how they are to be hooked up. One clip on each side of the terminals and the bulb must be between 4 V and 24 V. It could be that you possibly hooked up to a coil or switch? Something high voltage? Send me an email with a picture of your connection and I’ll take a look.

#4898 5 months ago

That is how I did its nice picture by the way how to do you make all these !

I can only guess somehow they touched? Maybe it was a total coincidence. Anyhow I disconnected them for now until I get it fixed. I do find sometimes the shrink tubing can make hit hard to clip in . It was defienlty hooked up to the flasher for the sparky insert and not a coil.

Okay then yes they definitely touched the base or each other. You can slide the factory black heat shrink out of the way and you should be good to go then with tons of room.

#4900 5 months ago

yes I am guessing it touched the base, lesson learned I guess. Wish is just blew the fuse but for whatever reason seems like more damage was done
