LE coming... Soon

#158 1 year ago
Quoted from Scribbles:

What's the word Meegis, dont be holding out on us!

Not holding out.... It's anyone's best guess at this point.

Just rejoining the club again for the first time lol

#166 1 year ago
Quoted from TenaciousT:

So I see in the spec. sheet that the LE comes with a shaker motor . So the prototype of Keith's that Jack Danger has been playing not have the shaker motor / not working ? No one has mentioned it ?

Jack said in the stream he turns them off

#172 1 year ago

LE's on the line and officially being boxed up for delivery!

Quoted from Scribbles:

AWESOME!!! I knew you had the inside scoop Meegis! Lol, just kidding. Although your avatar does appear to be keeping a close eye on something... (could be LEs, could be Peter Griffin)

My avatar is a pretty close resemblance of me in real life.

Other pinsiders can confirm or deny.

I have the same demeanour.

Quoted from PinMonk:

So no Pros in the wild yet?

There are at distros, I know trent put one at the VFW show in Michigan last weekend.

#400 1 year ago
Quoted from mbrave77:

Im trying to figure out why Greg thinks avengers is so similar to deadpool. He mentioned it on sdtm. Like he wouldnt want to own both. Because of art/theme? Or the shots? I dont see it on shots. Deadpools shots are pretty unique.

Deadpool has a lot of similarities to the original avengers game in it's shots. (When looking at prem/le)

The left orbit to a diverter shot is similar, the katana shot from right to left with a 90 degree is similar to the black widow shot.

Not the same at all, but more closely related than aiq

Did Greg mean that one? I haven't watched that review.

Quoted from Multiballmaniac1:

post broke off in two days.
[quoted image]

Well that decides it .... I am cancelling my nib order.

I'm also selling my whole collection.

This is too much for me to continue in the hobby.

In fact, I'm quitting my job, selling my house, divorcing my family and living in the woods.

Thanks for the heads up. I wish everyone luck.

#459 1 year ago
Quoted from Vitty:

In fairness he did sell his much maligned JP LE on here, so you never know

If someone wants to sell and someone else buys, I'm not gonna step in and stop it.

I just find it funny that game hasn't even landed.

To each their own I guess.

Too late! Your LE ships tomorrow!

Blank post.

Just unloading a few now! [quoted image]

I'm always jealous of your vans...

#616 1 year ago
Quoted from TenaciousT:

Hay Motorcity - Dont' you need to jack up the back legs a little more ?

Depends on his floor, and it looks like he hasn't put it in place due to painting (or reno work)

In my basement my legs are typically all the way in and the game sits perfectly due to floor angle.

#1125 1 year ago
Quoted from AJB4:

Well LE #2 is dead in the water.
Upper half of the playfield is dark.
Disc is stuck up. Ball search sees nothing happen in the trough. Can't start a game.
I now have 2 games down at the same time because of node board issues. SW is also down right now with node board 8 out.
Never had this happen with the SAM system.
I hate these node boards.
And my distributor just left on his annual 2 week trip out west. Not his fault though...
Oh, well it isn't arms and legs.

How long have you had your aiq?

What's the build date?

#1150 1 year ago

Some thoughts for use of shaker motor on aiq.

1) when the ring opens and closes on the prem/le, very much like the opening of the top left ramp does on iron maiden prem/le

2) any time you make a final shot to achieve a gem
2a) maybe when you collect the gem instead

3) integrate a shaker with gamma ray, either when spinning or when it runs out and ends

4) any time you land an attack shot in a fight mode, but this might be too much depending on the mode

I'm sure there is more that can be thought of, but I still haven't played it yet.

Quoted from Chambahz:

So excited to be in the club!!!

Something different about you in this pic.....

Might be the pandemic haircut, not sure though.

#1350 1 year ago

Jealous of the Toronto le guys getting games

#1352 1 year ago

Got my call just now, but the game won't be home for a little while. Likely a week or so.

#1353 1 year ago
Quoted from paul_8788:

Yeah. Stupid Toronto guys.

I resemble that remark.

#1941 1 year ago
Quoted from Lermods:

I was thinking chrome T-molding might look good on the LE.

I have an extra chrome moulding I can try if people want to see it.

However, I won't have my le until end of the week likely.

#1945 1 year ago
Quoted from MK6PIN:

Think the chrome would look outstanding on the LE (the yellow armor really has a nice sparkle flake in it plus the mirrored backglass as j85m mentioned)...please post pics if you try it....

Quoted from MK6PIN:

Put a couple hours on the game last night....absolutely a blast to play!!! Still sorting the rules out in my head (and average player at best) so this will provide fun and head scratching at the same time.
Think they did an outstanding job w the art/ light package.......so much to do in this game!!!!

I already have yellow moulding waiting, but I will give both a shot for you guys to see.

Just need to wait a bit

Quoted from pinballaddicted:

You are not last. We are patiently waiting in Australia. Hopefully soon.

Now the real question is when will I find time to open it.

Might not beat Australia

#2612 1 year ago

Let the opening commence...

#2631 1 year ago

So........

The game is working fantastic out of the box. No little issues that I've seen others posting...... Yet.

*Deep sigh*

The stupid issue I have right now is my ramp optos are plugged into the wrong places....

I got into soul gem, and hit the black widow ramp literally 9 times in a row without advancing. It was weird though, as it was giving me points and "working"

Open the game up, Did a switch test.

Fat ramp is reading left ramp, black widow is right ramp, etc. Etc.

I mean, it's a stupid bad silly error, but why is this not caught during the final testing that stern says they do on every game?

I know people rag in their quality inspection, but this is really a silly miss.

I am going to swap the connectors around and figure it out, and relative to what I'm reading it's not a big deal, just silly.

#2632 1 year ago

30 second job, and all is well.

I just feel bad for anyone who isn't versed in pinball tech.

It's simple to those of us who understand it, but would suck for someone who just bought a machine because it was a cool purchase or they wanted to entertain the family.

Always two sides to every coin.

#2637 1 year ago
Quoted from Lermods:

You are at least the third person it’s happened to, including me. Minor issue, agree it should be caught. There are a lot of opto plugs under the pf, but interesting how it’s the same opto being plugged in incorrectly. Maybe they are labeled incorrectly..

I'm pretty sure the harness was made incorrectly... They were plugged in and the wires matched each other by color, so now that I have reversed them (making the game function properly) the wires don't match anymore.

I did swap the wire labels though, for future testing purposes if ever there's another issue.

#2638 1 year ago
Quoted from chuckwurt:

Chances are these types would never know there’s an issue. Haha

LoL

Likely very true

#2656 1 year ago
Quoted from MurphyPeoples:

What is your games "born on" date?

Pretty sure it's Oct 6. I am not home right now, but that's what I recall

#2876 1 year ago
Quoted from chuckwurt:

Too easy to trap up and they don’t dead bounce well. Oh and you need the hulk to put them on flippers.

I find my super bands dead bounce fine, just need to work them in a bit.

As for putting them on, warm them in your hands and give a little prestretch and you should be ok.

Now, the mini flippers (like on maiden), that's Hulk territory.

#2877 1 year ago

Duplicate post

#2881 1 year ago
Quoted from chuckwurt:

Or just skip all that and use something else.

I like the pretty colours.

Quoted from J85M:

I haven’t even upgraded from .93 to .94 yet, think I might just wait for the double jump to .95 can’t wait!

I keep doing this lol. I'm still on .91 and every time they drop a code, I get lazy and then I hear the next ones coming. So I wait again

#3331 1 year ago
Quoted from awesome1:

If you have a Premium/LE, the newer code helps with some of the ball staging issues in the gem portal.
I’ve never had an issue updating luckily, gone smoothly every time.

No issues with my machine, so I don't mind waiting.

#3494 1 year ago
Quoted from PinballConspiracy:

Will be Streaming at 7:30
https://twitch.tv/pinballconspiracy
But I cant compare to iepinball’s portal cam
I could stare at that all day

Portal cam?

Any links to what this looks like?

#3501 1 year ago
Quoted from CashMoney:

Finally received the updated subway mech from Stern today. Thought I’d share with the group. Took a little over a month.[quoted image][quoted image]

That's a subway, not the mech

What was your issue?

#3547 12 months ago
Quoted from Soulstoner:

It's 100% your shaker motor just squeaking. You just need to grease it up a bit. Had the same issue with mine and it was driving me nuts.

This.

I had this issue on some of my games in the past. It is possible it may fix itself over time, but you can also just clean it up a bit if theres dirt. (dont know about grease, never did that myself)

#3561 12 months ago
Quoted from beastmaster1981:

Hi everybody,
Just in the club since Thursday with an Avengers Premium from October
So fun game !!!
Got three issues at the begining :
The right ramp was above the right slingshot so the ball doesnt get out of the ramp !! (So i put the ramp a little more on the other side and now ok ).
One led is missing neare the right flipper .... (no led in the support, quality control missing...)
An other problem , when the ball goes into the antman hole, sometimes she goes into the tunnel and get stop inside !!! I have to nudge the pinball to get it out and getting back in the antman hole (vuk). How can i solve this problem ?
I made a video of this. " https://photos.app.goo.gl/XM56ftHZuw15gFkZ6 "
Thanks for help
(I install the shaker, definitevely a blast with the thor multiball)
[quoted image]

For the missing bulb, check if it fell out into the cabinet somewhere during shipping (it had a long journey). Remember to check scoops, trough, and subway. You may find it.

As mentioned, the antman scoop may just be a leveling issue, so best to level the game out again and see if it helps.

#3570 12 months ago
Quoted from ezeltmann:

putting my LE up for sale shortly ...
currently needs install of new magnetic sensor board and ball walker assembly as well as the upper loop opto fix.
that work will be done tomorrow , i have all the parts from Stern, excepting a new opto , but that may not be needed
fyi for those who are interested.

Why selling so soon?

#3873 11 months ago

So I have some questions about the Ant-Man clear coat issues everyone keeps talking about...

I checked my game when I got it couldn't see anything I have checked again over a month later and still if there is any type of clear coat issue I feel like it is so minor I have no reason to even complain. I tried to take a picture, but even with a super zoom there isn't anything to see.

some people are saying that Stern has started putting washers on at the factory before they ship. Wouldn't this cause the same issue as the rail being jammed into the clear coat? Instead of just one flat edge it's now a circle?

I guess I'm just confused because I really don't know how bad this clear coat issue can be. Or am I really underestimating something so tiny?

#3902 11 months ago
Quoted from Flipstream:

This can happen:
[quoted image]

I understand that some of them are bad. I have seen some, but I am looking at mine and thinking do I need to put in a washer? I can hardly even tell that there is any pooling at all.

#3953 11 months ago
Quoted from newpinbin:

Just saw that. Bet not many people even have an AIQ in SFL.

If I was still living in Boynton Beach, I'd make this a trifecta

I miss the usa.
