Maybe? I hadn’t played the game yet, but maybe it’s a future thought for when I get mine?

By adding the lane protectors and sling protectors, I had to take off the ramps. While the ramps were off, I replaced all rubbers at the lower 3/4 of the playfield with blue super bands. I added the Antman, trough, and plunger lane Cliffy protectors. I may add the other two later. With the ramp to the left flipper off, it was easier to replace the Sanctum and Tower mods with the Mezel Mods. The Stern game blades look great and are thicker than the other company's blades.

AIQ is lined up next to my other 5 Marvel themed games. Part of me wants Iron Man to complete the set. The other part would rather have a different game.

Thanks for everyone's help while i was waiting for the game and starting working on it. It only took less than two evenings to get it ready to play. Now I can learn the rules.

. got mine today and it works perfect. I just used a Dremel tool to trim the bottom left a little bit to make it sit flush for machine but this mod is totally worth it. thanks again

That's weird... I clicked reply and it quoted you instead for some reason....

#5307 11 months ago
Quoted from WizardsCastle:

I'm not confident this is correct, and I'll explain why. Although the factory bubble level is crap, I can get that bubble near the middle on all my game by setting the average pitch to 6.5. That would mean if between the slings is 6.3, the middle is 6.5, and the top is 6.7, you're pretty much at 6.5.

No idea who you talked to at Stern, but that's wrong. Pitch is only measured between the flippers. As you've noticed, pitch increases as you go up the playfield. That's why you only measure in one place. Side to side level can vary from the top of the playfield to the bottom, so you check level up and down the playfield wherever the level will fit to get it exactly level.

Your game isn't steep enough. Easy fix.

#5308 11 months ago

I set my AIQ up last night, this game is fantastic! I might be my favorite Elwin, it's only been a day so it's hard to say right now. Are rejects from the center ramp plastic piece common? I have had numerous shots hit the edge of that piece and get totally rejected. I also think my portal needs some adjustment. It randomly stops raising at times, and doesn't fully raise itself often.

#5309 11 months ago

I moved my game into position. It was not level right to left and the pitch changed to 6.2.

I changed it to 6.7 and leveled the game. Before when the ball came out of the lock tower it did not roll down the left side hugging the lane guide and flipper so using the upper flipper was impossible. So leveling made a big difference.

The manual plunger is not always getting the ball up the back left ramp. I assume it should every time with a full plunge. I am wondering if I need a smaller barrel spring on the outside of the plunger or a longer rod to get the end of the rod closer to the ball to hit squarely. In the picture below is this about normal? With the pitch at 6.7 it seems to go up the back ramp more but I also see where it bounces and loses momentum as it comes off the plunger ramp to the curve.

Slight update: when moved into position it was reporting 6.2 pitch so I adjusted to 7.7 and the plunger actually works better.

I replaced the two 3/16” rubbers at the lower end of the right loop with a 5/16” super band rubber. (All I had). Obviously I knew it would change things. It ended up bouncing the ball to the left sling, drop targets or in/out lanes. I put the two 3/16” original rubbers back and thought it would cause the ball to roll straight to the right flipper. But they do stick out a bit with original but normally bounce to the left flipper. I assuming this is “normal” flow?

Timing the upper flipper with the lock release is hard. I assume with practice I’ll get better.

about should be 6.7 not 7.7

One SUGGESTION for selcting modes- order them after their color, like a rainbow!
That would make the selecting porcess way more fast and intuitive.
Yellow gen next to orange, next to red...

I've had shots reject off that plastic above the Black Widow ramp on mine. If I remember correctly, it happened a fair amount when I had pitch set higher. I lowered the pitch slightly and now it doesn't happen very often.

#5313 11 months ago

Maybe I can take a look at the black widow plastic and do a redesign or something this weekend

I do like to play my games pretty steep. I'll try lowering it, it's at 7.2 right now .

Received my Disk Leveling Bushing kit from Stern yesterday - any advise or other pointers from anyone who has already done this repair?

#5316 11 months ago
Quoted from dougPDX:

I installed it on mine and it was a pretty straightforward job. The only part that caused any thinking was unscrewing the white plastic nut. Didn't want to use too much force and break it. It was a bit tough to get it to release but once it did everything was easy. I just used pliers and gently applied pressure until it released. Everything else was straightforward and pretty easy.

I've already suggested that the order you rotate through gems while selecting should be the same order they are displayed on the screen and the gauntlet.

#5319 11 months ago

Anybody tried the connect figures in their game? They are small enough, not super detailed though. Maybe a repaint would be fun. Captain marvel looks decent enough though. I pictured her twice to show a flying upward angle ha. Could see her flying up the side somehow! Not one for adding a ton of crap in a game, as I think this game is super awesome as is. The mods you guys are showing look great. This Mezel mods especially!

I'm about to acquire a used AIQ Pro with about 200 plays. What (specific to this game) should I check for?

#5322 11 months ago
Quoted from Jediturtle:

If I remember right the Deadpool Hellhouse scoop is an example of one being protected from the factory.

The last one they did a protector on was the grandpa scoop on munsters. I know my deadpool one fell apart and I had to get a new one. They aren't as thick as actual cliffy protectors, but at least it was something. At least you can put the drop target protectors on some of the scoops, like avengers.

Congrats - I'm sure you will love it. Probably others on this forum with more experience on used machines, but I would simply play it for a few games and note if anything seems to not work as intended. I have come to realize that routine maintenance is a key part of owning your own machine. Unless anything is clearly broken, I probably would not be too concerned.

Check the ball guides around Thor captive ball and others around the area for heavy peeling. Fun game.

I think I've fixed the portal issue. Ultimately I reflowed the connections on the sensor board and reseated the connections going to the node board. After that my portal is working properly.

Well I joined the club tonight and got my Premium! So far very happy. Sold my Iron Maiden Premium to make way.

I posted pics with mirror blades a while back if you go to the thread photos. I think mirror blades on this machine look fantastic. It really brings out the amazing light show this game has.

AIQ Battle Royale Challenge 0.99 Bug

After defeating the Black Order - instead of the game ending - I am awarded the Soul Gem and allowed to continue the game, which unfortunately didn't last long with an outlane drain...

I've been awarded a zero point Soul Gem a few other times, but this is the first time the game continued.

Check if mini loop and hulk spinner register correctly.
I also reduced the strenght of ball eject to protect the shooter lane (as usual with stern)

#5335 10 months ago

Wow I wish I had heard about the issues with the Ant-Man rail earlier. Three days in and my rail has already scraped away the art around it. I have a set of Cliffys on the way, but it's still a bummer. For now I've raised it up with a washer.

It's odd that some games seem to have a washer on it from the factory. Mine was built Feb 8 and did not.

Sorry to hear that, it’s been all over this thread for some time. Might contact stern since they did make adjustments for it?

Yeah I shot them an email, so we'll see what happens. I'm not sure how I missed it, though I also didn't spend much time in this thread until receiving the game. Lesson learned for the next time I get a game.

when does the up post in front of avenger tower fire? it hasn’t activated once in a couple dozen games on prem. i put a few games on a pro before buying and it fired several times just by flailing around. i ran test and it fires so i’m thinking either i suck and haven’t activated it yet (likely) or i’ve got some kind of upstream switch issue.

On the premium, it comes up to catch the ball after hitting the gauntlet ramp when you collect a gem. That is the only time I can think of, but there might be more.

On the pro it will come up more often as I believe that is where it stops the ball to select your gem quest. Pretty much any time the premium would put a ball into the subway, the pro stops it there ( I think!).

Maybe you haven’t collected a gem yet? Other than that, it will come up during Thanos Attacks mode every time you defend a gem against him.

The post comes up all the time in the pro because that’s where the gem quests start, instead of from the portal.

Chances are that your Thor ball guide is digging in as well, and you want to get a washer on that sooner then later.

ok so i did collect a gem once. it might have fired and i just missed it in the excitement. good to know it doesn’t fire as often in prem. i’ll keep an eye out for it and maybe check check the opto on the right ramp in the meantime.
thank you both for responding. your quick insightful feedback is an example of what i love about pinside. much appreciated.
