Three sets of optos on the subway. All wiring colors and location would be in the manual (2-36 and 2-37)

Thanks! Unfortunately he doesn't have a manual and I want to save the paper and ink from printing one. I would if it were mine and too hard to read schematics on my phone.

#405 8 months ago

Yeah, I would print one off, but not my machine. Too hard to read schematics on a phone too.

#406 8 months ago

Just print the pages you need.

The 2 sets of optos you are missing completely should be fed from a 6 pin (3x2) molex on the lower right side. My guess is they removed that whole harness.15634076070379076886707693619154 (resized).jpg

The other near the vuk is fed from another 6 pin mid playfield.

Am I the only one that noticed this? There are faces in the match dice!

Oh, and I've made 18 or 19 jumps in a row. It's one of the few shots I can make fairly consistently!

Does anyone have a better solution to protecting the playfield from the ball drop here? I see someone installed a cliffy on the rollover which is close, but the dent (just above the cliffy) is still there and will surely get bigger over time.

You could put a small square of Mylar down as well.

You are right, over a long enough period of time things could change. But if it is HOU now, given the number of plays when routed for maybe 20+ years compared to how many it gets now... it doesn't seem like something to be really really concerned about.

Not everything needs super protection; these games are pretty durable to have lasted this long!

Quoted from topkat:

Can someone please post a similarly angled photo as I did so I can determine if my setup is correct
Thanks

[quoted image]

Sorry for the long delay! And yes, it definitely makes the jumps just fine.

I still
Have a bear of time making the jumps.
I am curious how high above the playfield the ur flipper is. When I try to do the normal distance it seems like since it’s a heavier metal bat it drops down some.
Also do you have the edge of the flipper in line with the right side of ramp ?

Here's a pic of mine. It's tough to make mine all the time also but that's because my ramp got a warped from a locked on magnet but I actually haven't changed it cause it's harder and i never say anything as people play it

You have the Lightning Flipper mod also which might make it harder to shoot also.

I shifted mine a little bit. Will see
What difference would the lightening flipper make? I didn’t even realize I had done that.

The Lightning flipper is shorter than a standard length flipper. The shot for the loop is almost at the end of the flipper already so if yours is shorter it would just make it a little harder to hit the sweat spot on the loop ramp. I wanted to get the lighting flipper also for tournaments so it is harder to repeat the loop.
I'm not that good in tournaments but some of these guys can hit the same shot over and over again, so making a little harder is what you would want in a tournament. Just my thoughts.

Since I got this I can't stop playing! Super fun and under rated game that has great flow... My poor CFTBL is just sitting there
Need customer apron cards for it and a color DMD..

Just picked up a No Fear. Looking forward to shopping it and getting everything working.

Bonehead has a missing red lens for the right eye. Anyone know here to get a replacement?

Hey I just joined the club a couple weeks ago. It looks to be in great condition just needs the usual flipper rebuild, leds, rubbers and a good cleaning. Also judging by the pile of metal shavings under the upper flipper, a new long bushing. Anyone know where I can pick one up? Seems like they are out of stock most places. Can’t wait to go through this bad boy. Cheers

has to be one of the switches near bye is being triggered by the vibration. I'd pull the glass and figure which of the nearby targets give 500, then check gap.
Also could go into the switch test mode, hit the flipper and see if another switch triggers as well...

I play the darn thing until my knees give out at night. So much fun. I have not had this much fun with any newer game at all.

This is one of the better color DMDs I have seen or had.

#435 5 months ago

Do you guys have the magnet speed set fast or slow, for when it whips the ball around for the jump. I swtiched to slow thinking I'd be better hitting the jumps, but I think its easier to get in a groove when its moving quicker

Can anyone tell me what the voltage coming off their off-board battery pack is? I have 5.0V at the pack "directly" at batteries, and 4.2V at the end of the leads, after what I assume is an inline diode. That seems like too big of a drop, and I'm having the "Factory Settings Restored" issue which I've been troubleshooting with no luck so far.

Just picked up a NF a few weeks ago and just wanted to make the following behavior is correct. When turning the game on, the plunger in the ball trough does a gentle nudging of the pinballs in there. I assume this is normal, just wanted to verify. Thanks!

Is there a ROM update on this Classic?

Quoted from Gorgar666:

I think it’s supposed to load a ball into the shooter lane and launch it into the skull. Kind of like how bsd loads one for mist.

Quoted from Pinhead306:

I have that turned off in the adjustment settings. When the game is turned on it resets the drop target and gently rustles the balls in the trough.

Finally got my new mountain installed. Little darker than the OEM one but my mounting tabs were broken. Just to have a solid piece in there again as the old one was flying around a bit. I used some clear lexan washers to keep the balls away this time! I'm going to mount an led reflector on the sling shot and maybe shoot it with a red led to brighten it up a bit. I got the new mountain from https://www.starship-fantasy.com/ but I don't see it on their page. I run into them at a few pinball shows yearly and he had them on his table. Can't remember what I paid for it but it was'nt that bad.

I am getting ready to install my new main ramp. First, I need to put on the decals. There are 4. The first 3 were easy, but the last one was unglued from my old ramp and I don't know where it goes. It is square-ish, black, and is about 2 sq inch.

Anybody can tell me where it goes? Picture?

Thanks.
