Quoted from EaglePin:

Page 45 of the game manual lists the coil sleeves as part #545-5388-00. You can search that part number on Pinball Life.
https://sternpinball.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/09/AvengersInfinity_Pro_web.pdf

Thanks Eaglepin for the doc reference. That's where I looked originally but no size information. I didn't know you could put stern part numbers in the search window on pinball life.

Thanks a lot I got what I needed on order!

Thanks awesome1 for the direct link to the parts on pinball life

Is the grid feature something that you really figure out in play (except in gem quest of course)?

#6403 8 months ago
Quoted from Valorguy:

The new playfield was already all put together with all of the boards, etc.... So - I reseated all of the connectors on every node in the machine. I realized while I was at it, that none of the switches attached to the main node (top of playfield node, orange connector) are registering. I believe they were registering previously, so something may have burnt out, etc. on the node board? It still shows 48v light and 6 v light and orange light still flashing showing data is moving.
Confusing part is that the Lower left GI connectors go to the other node board on the lower playfield.
[quoted image]

do you still have the old playfield ? try swapping a node board over? if not try swapping the two node boards on the game. And then ping stern and the will send a node board out to you.

Yes its simple. Instant info will show you the award for a completed row.

It takes awhile to bring that up though - I wish it was a little more front and center.

You think so? They made it the first thing to appear so it moves pretty quick for me.
Just gotta remember to look at it before plunging ball 1

#6407 8 months ago

They need to make a way forward the instant info to stay on the same screen unless you change it.

Quoted from TheLaw:

I do this all the time now, and use the skill shot to pick off a portal lock if it’s available. I wish the bingo screen would linger longer sometimes.

Quoted from chuckwurt:

Maybe using the lock bar button?...but this might interfere with other uses of that button, not sure. You could at least ditch the high scores so you don’t have to flip so many times to wrap around for a second look. First world problems of a pinball enthusiast, I suppose...

#6409 8 months ago
Quoted from TheLaw:

That's my point with front and center. Why not show that at the start of the game, for example? Is there another game with such an important game play mechanic that's hidden behind instant info?

I like the idea of using the action button, but only if it wouldn't do anything else. Not sure what to do if the Mind gem is active, for example.

#6410 8 months ago
Quoted from chuckwurt:

I agree. I find myself cycling thru the screens and also I don't care about high scores at the end.

#6411 8 months ago
Quoted from chuckwurt:

Maybe just automatically cycle through the menu unless the other flipper button is pressed and then make it so the flipper button advances the screens and auto-page turn is disabled. I also wouldnt mind an adjustment to have the bingo grid front and center instead of the trophy room.

Dmd era + have always had tons of important information in the information section

#6413 8 months ago

Finally got my pro yesterday. Shots are tight, but the game has great flow. Now to read thru the first 128 pages of the thread now that Pinside is back up.

#6414 8 months ago

New code dropped - v1.01 - no major changes, but they did finally replace the trophy room.

What game? TSPP, TWD, and MET don't seem to Gabe anything near as important as the Computer in AIQ. All I've really ever seen are counters.

How does it look my in-laws are in town and haven’t gotten a chance to update yet?

#6417 8 months ago

Looks like this post was lost in the fire. Selling these mods off of my recently acquired aiq. I just like a cleaner look overall. $160 shipped for all 3. Quinjet, ironman, and cap shield button cover.

Awards given out for for ramp hits for example.

Counters that tell you when bonii will happen, EBs etc. Pretty important stuff to me anyway.

#6419 8 months ago
Quoted from Deyanks98:

It looks better than the trophy room. There was a video posted a few weeks ago explaining the rules and it had the new code on it. Pretty minor changes overall though - my favorite fix is pausing Binary Mode when the ball is in the pops, locked, etc.

#6420 8 months ago
Quoted from TheLaw:

For me, the difference is I can keep track of how many times I've hit Sparky, or the coffin, etc in Metallica (for example), but with AIQ, you have to pause the game to see which squares give what rewards and they change every game. Should be an easier way to see such important information. On the other hand, I suck so bad that it probably wouldn't even matter! Lol

#6421 8 months ago

There is now a setting to stop the instant info screen from auto-scrolling. Really nice for examining the grid. And the new main screen is fantastic!

I did turn off the combo limiter for BW-CM combos. I rarely hit more than two in a row anyway, but if I do I damn well better get credit for it, LOL. Seems like it makes sense for the pro, but it isn't an easy combo on the prem/LE.

Lots of nice little tweaks in this one. Good stuff.

Im not happy about it being removed but i have my CM shot pretty dialed in where i can combo BW and CM fairly well. I would always at least go for a few while the ball save is still running

If you aren’t happy with the change, thankfully it’s a setting so you can change it back! I know some people get hung up on factory settings, but the options were given to us so why not use them to make the game more enjoyable.

Cant do it. Feels like cheating to me. Like using a game genie

#6428 8 months ago

Does anybody else also have the problem that the drop targets (computer grid) don´t drop when the ball comes full speed from the right flipper? It`s pretty annoying when you go for the skillshot and hit the targets but nothing is happening. Is there some kind of adjustment I can do to solve this issue?

#6429 8 months ago

So went to install the jbl stage 810 and the length of the screws (assuming these are fin or spiral fin shank screws) are not long enough to receive the lock nuts.

No issue with this subwoofer in any other stern I own. Anyone else have this issue?

#237-5957-00
#6-32 x 1-3/16 inch steel spiral fin shank screw uses to secure pop bumper bracket.

By my math, that will give me 11mm height inside the cabinet. Anyone ever replace these before? I'm afraid that hammering them out will cause tear out in the plywood.

#6430 8 months ago

I'm still loving this game. I finally put up a couple 1B+ point games in the past few days, but I didn't even make it to Battle Royale in any of them so I still have more work to do!!!

Fooling around with making some 3D speaker grill for a friend... Of course they will needed some painting to look cool.

Will share the '.stl' files if anyone wants them. They are just Thingiverse files I grabbed and modified. I did something similar to my JP and IMDN, some of you may have seem the photos on those threads.

I wasn’t aware that was a skill shot? Any other weird ones as I know about the inner loop one up top?

#6434 8 months ago
Quoted from Deyanks98:

Hitting the center drop target from the plunge instantly awards the lit grid square ("secret skill shot!"). Also fun on mine that bank shot tends to send it up around the inner loop, so if I hit the lower drop instead by accident sometimes I get the loop skillshot instead

#6435 8 months ago

Others I believe have mentioned this potential issue. I finally had two balls locked in the portal. (I am lucky if I can just get one.) When the portal opened for a gem quest, the game was confused and did nothing until a ball search and then kicked out the balls.

I think others have mentioned that the ball will go past opto 47 and trigger it correctly so in most cases, the game is fine. But if a ball stops at switch 47, it is resting such that it is past the opto and not registering that the ball is there and is lost.

The above video has a ball in the rightmost subway area (switch 47) after it has rolled past the opto. I then turn on high power and would expect the screen to show switch 47 closed. But it can't since the ball is not blocking the opto.

I sent this video to Pablo at Stern Tech Support. Did I explain this correctly? (in the video, I say I turn off the lock but meant I turn off the high power. I also say the game locks up, I meant the game stops until a ball search.)

yup, this is a common issue with this game. I have it. Pablo is aware of it and he will send you a new mech.
I am waiting for mine, however, I do not know if the new mech is going to solve the issue....

Thanks. So I assume that the metal tooth that keeps the ball in the switch 47 area is simply not aligned correctly or shaped correctly to ensure that the ball is blocking the opto path for switch 47.

I would rather not try to jerry-rig it to get it to work as others have said since it is a new game and it should work out of the box. Thanks!

Have you physically looked at the teeth positioning? You can look down trough the portal windows or inside the Antman VUK.

There is a bit of "wiggle room" in aligning the mechanism with the plastic portion of the subway. If one tooth is getting hung up you may be able to adjust the positioning to prevent this from happening. Not saying this is guaranteed to fix the issue - but worth investigating.

The mechanism and subway are pretty easy to remove or adjust from under the playfield.

Thanks. I looked. I did not take a photo but can do so later or tomorrow. Looking from underneath from the right side, the last tooth (furthest to the right) was not aligned in the same direction as the others. I will need to look at it to understand it and see how adjusting the ramp or mech can help. Thanks!

the mech on itself has a lot on slack on the last tooth and it does not come up properly. The new mech I believe is supposed to fix this.
I would not spend too much time on this, other than identifying whether the last tooth is at the same height as the other ones. If it is not, you need the new mech.

On mine you could see that the bar that raises the tooth was sliding out of alignment and wearing down the tooth mech, which was why it wouldn't raise fully. I messed with it and couldn't get anything to correct the issue and have asked for a replacement.

In case anyone was following - they changed the thickness of the plywood used for the bottom of the cabinet - 12.7mm on IMDN and SW, 19.05mm on AIQ.

#6445 8 months ago

Anyone know what part # this plastic is and where I could get a replacement? It’s the clear plastic piece between the BW and Gauntlet ramps. It cracked in half during a rowdy Multi-ball session the other day. I couldn’t find any basic plastic replacement parts listed in the Operators Manual. It is marked -50 on the actual plastic. Assuming it may be 840-1143-50 based on the naming convention but I can’t find where to buy one. But maybe it’s too new of a game for a plastics set to be available.

#6446 7 months ago

Not a bad update at all. This and Elvira are the most fun I've had with sterns in a while.

Not sure what it is with this game and updates but every time I've played it and thought something would be better if they changed it, a new code comes out and they change what I was hoping for... so much customisation now to change the game to your liking... awesome.

#6447 7 months ago

Does anyone know about what build date they changed the subway mech to correct the issue?

#6448 7 months ago

Current maybe? mine is from Feb and has the old mech.

#6449 7 months ago
Quoted from Pin_Fandango:

Current maybe? mine is from Feb and has the old mech.

I guess it will be the luck of the draw. Not sure what the build date will be on my prem but it's ordered and and we shall see. I didn't feel like waiting until July or August on the re run to get the game, if it has the issue I will contact Pablo and have them send me one of the newer mechs.

Heard but not sure the delays might be due to the motors on some of the mechs in these games actually on a few titles which is why they are hard to get right now, motors are hung up through the shipping lanes.

#6450 7 months ago

I can't wait until Pinball browser is updated and we can replace audio/video in this game. The terrible music/callouts and boring video are my only real complaints with this game. I love the ruleset and layout.
