Not really to stop ball hopping over the rail but to give a chance to nudge a little, also get rid of the ball to metal contact. I know I know my Ripley's has that also. Just seeing how it works?

Quoted from CaptainNeo:

Normally my scores range from 2million up to 380 million. Today I had one game that happened to hit mass hysteria , with 2x running and storage multiball. Ended up with 1.8 billion. Is mass hysteria a little overpowered in the points department?

I'd say it's fair to have huge points gated behind hard to reach modes. To me that's good balance. Scoleri targets need to be worth more outside of multiball. There are a few tweaks to scoring and goals that could make the ramp up to big points more even, however.

Quoted from CaptainNeo:

i've never seen stay puft mode. I've tried. I can hit ballroom sometimes but not finish it. Librarian once. but don't know if I finished it or not.

quite simple, if you've finished a ladder, you've than activated (and done ?) the WE CAME WE SAW multiball on the left ramp (all lamps blinking & showing the ramp)

I just got a new sd card from stern and it didn't fix my sling lights staying on or the sound issue but now my screen does the same thing

why are you going through all that. I already told you how to fix it in 3 min and cost you nothing.

Oh ya, mines bad. I'll be doing your fix shortly

Quoted from northvibe:

I did that fix and really worked! No hopping anymore. Great and easy fix, only problem is the clearcoat of the field, it chips around the ball guide. I fixed that with some new clear. Also while your at it, polish those rails, they look fantastic when polished. So no need for all those plastics over and on top of the rails. I am not a fan of those.

#507 3 years ago

why would the clear chip? Mine didn't chip. They are smooth, should have no problems with chipping. I've pounded out 100's of those metal rails, and the only ones that will chip clear are the ones that have the butterfly on the end, which these do not have.

#508 3 years ago

The clear came up with the rails on mine and chipped at the base of the rails. Same when removing the outpost. When removing the washer, the clear came with that. Not a big deal but it happens.

Worked amazingly well. I have not had a SINGLE ball hop since.

#510 3 years ago

My horizontal scrolling screen fixed itself! There is a damn ghost in this thing. No code or node update, nuttin'. Just booted up this morning, good as gold.

#511 3 years ago

Are you guys able to backhand the steep left ramp? I am getting brick shots when I try and attempt. I am still really enjoying the game and I like the challenge of trying to advance further in the game. I figured out why there is limited multi-ball modes in this game. It's because the multi-ball mode only last one minute with the flipper gap-I keed I keed.

I am interested in those German shooter lane protectors. I had the same idea in design but never attempted to make them. With the poor clear coat and the shooter lane eject being too powerful-these protectors will really help with the shooter lane not getting destroyed.

I also found another cool mod. Its a rotating projector that projects ghost flying around. Can be mounted to project on ceiling or floor beneath pinball.

#512 3 years ago

I have been able to backhand the left ramp, but not reliably, and very dangerous as it often hits the stand up targets instead. Much better to to a post pass and shoot it from the right flipper.

Quoted from PeterG:

if it did it for outposts, they would have had populated the field within 8 hours of clearing the field. Because it would mean it was still a little soft and stuck to the posts and rails. With sterns setup, that's not really possible. or someone mixed the clear wrong and didn't put enough hardner in, and took days to fully harden. :/

#514 3 years ago

So has anybody been able to use the airball protector with their LE/premium? Shots to the ramp will hit the protector, and backhands are impossible with it in place. I tried to shim it up with a couple of washers, but you can't screw the nut back down when you do.

Also, I finally replaced the left ramp switch, because the one on there isn't any good. It's an Omron switch, which is more stiff than a Cherry switch, so I found that once in a while it won't register. I swapped it out with a Cherry and it's perfect now. The pic with the three switches shows two Cherry switches (top, right), and the original Omron that Stern used (bottom/left). The bottom pic shows the new switch in place. Even the slowest rollers register just fine.

Theres an assumption that all playfields are dimpled and assembled 100% Identical.

This is not True. I have heard from one customer in England, that the cover didnt reach one target. His solution required the hole to be enlarged.

On another, as the ramp to playfield anchor issue you have, washers can be added, but in your case....not enough thread.

I am guessing the best answer is 1/4" or shorter standoffs...

On a customers Pro, he needed to grind a small arc, as his was hitting.

Overall, it works, but not possible to build something with such a tight fit, and a swinging arc boom, with a hanging figure.

I think now many can see why in testing the boom has a large oval through the playfield,
and I added washers and spacers after dropping the mech, or raising the boom with the grub screw.

Sure, we wish the game never needed it...but in an effort to release the one that addressed
the highest majority of possibilities, Curly at LSOG, Myself, and Pingraffix, all have the same.

One version for a customer, I had to cut slits for the ramp.

So from this view, 4 adjustments out of 150......Wish it was 100%.

Anyone not happy with mine, is welcome to return for a refund in full, less shipping.

If you have an adjustment, please share, so all can benefit.

#516 3 years ago

It's an excellent product. I'll probably grind out some extra clearance.

Do you have a part number for the exact Cherry switch you used, or a link?

#518 3 years ago

Also try lowering your coil strength, and see if they fly off the ramp.....

Ok I just got my prem today. My Slimmer was dragging bad. I loosened the screw at the top and raised the arm as high as I could and it was still dragging bad. I then put washer under the back of the bracket under the playfield that holds the slimmer mech (see photos). I finally got enough washers to keep him from dragging. The only thing is slimmer can't be hit when he's in the Ecto1 Lane. The ball goes under him. Is this the way it's supposed to do? Thanks for any info.

Interesting, I just think this clearcoat is different than my other Stern's and not in a good way.

Yes had it a couple of times - I think it's a bug in the software, it goes away when playing.

Got mine the other day Art, works a treat. Thank you very much. Cuts air balls by 90 ish percent. Every one needs one of these.

i really think it's just your game. My clear is exactly the same as it is on TF, AC/DC and LOTR. Except on GB i can't see vertical lines in the wood.

What was he hitting?

If its the metal black captive ball cover, start by taking the washers out.
Check Slimer for excess plastic or metal.
Next try raising his wire slightly by pulling up and testing.
A zip tie, or split mini post rubber may hold him.
Next is the grub screw on the boom.
To raise to the maximum, loosen and slide off boom, tighten screw and slide back on.
the shaft wont pass the now tightened screw. Loosen, drop 2mm and tighten. Thats the highest point.
The washers below the mech help, but as you can see, it changes the arc, and now cant be hit.
Ive put mine back to Normal, although If I was the designer of this, I would have added an adjutment front nd certain so no one would have these issues.
Sometimes, is a combination of these, as the left side is mounted differently by up to 6mm-8mm, as best as I can tell.

Yes he was dragging on the black captive ball cover. I did all this and the washer was the last step. It took all this to keep it from dragging. It can be hit everyplace but when it's in the Ecto1 Lane. I don't think there's anything in the rules that requires you to hit him in a certain lane. If there is something in the rules please let me know because I haven't been able to play very many games yet. He doesn't seem to go to the Ecto1 Lane as much as the others anyway. I'm going to leave it if there's nothing in the rules. Thank you.

#527 3 years ago

Nothing in the rules....

#528 3 years ago

I just slightly bent my arm upward and it is perfect

#529 3 years ago

Does anyone know where to get good scorecards for the le? Has anyone made any cool ones yet?

#531 3 years ago

I just finished my ecto-1 mod, so far it's cost me about $15. It has two Blue leds installed in the car, and I wired it up to the stern topper so it lights up when the topper does. I thought I would like that more than a random or constant flash. All that's left is mounting it on the playfield.

Here's a 10sec video of it sitting next to the topper:

#533 3 years ago

Coming soon as reported from Pinball Paparazzi FB page. Anything else they can pack into this game?coming soon (resized).jpg

#534 3 years ago

Updated to code 1.10 just now and played intently for a quick new all-time high score. It's got nice new colorfull light shows, and they fixed the annoying unfinished sounding warning sounds. Callouts sound better too, but I still have to tone down the treble -- way to shrill out of the box. Still no fix for the some of the basic typography though, and strangely seems to have reduced the power of the left ejector. I liked having it set high, with a little shim inside the saucer to lean the ball over a little so on eject it goes straight and solid to the right flipper. That feels a lot better than a wilted low power eject setting dribbling it safely to the left flipper. Now, at max, it only makes it to the tip of the right flipper. Just barely good enough, but liked it better before...

#535 3 years ago

Actually, false alarm on the ejector power, my shim was simply nudged out of place. It's not something permanently installed, so my bad. I do get the flickering E problem, hope it goes away on its own or with the next update.

the flickering e is the only thing i see that is "bad" in this code, but I do suck at playing :-p

Quoted from northvibe:

So far we have come up against flikering E. No big deal
Game lock up on ESP Ability. Big problem.
Slimer is now a bitch to register hits. Major problem.
Scare mode was cool, but I can see where some locations will have to turn that off.
Sometimes the game will finish the upper modes on it's own without having to shoot the shots. Mainly the modes that lead to We Came We Saw.
Hopefully an update will be quick.

There's lots more bugs than that too. I don't think any that were present in 1.05 got fixed in 1.10. I don't know if it's just my game, but I have a major bug where the clear flashers sometimes get stuck on during PKE frenzy.

Hi
Just installed V1.10
I can't find the path to set the game on free play! I'm stuck in custom pricing but can't figured out

Thanks

Has the option for Magna slings strength gone also? I couldnt find it?

#543 3 years ago

anyone else getting random autolaunches with some balls after one ends? Seems to be software related.

#544 3 years ago

I can't locate the magna-sling strength setting either; mind you I really like the default on the new code. Overall, aside from the blinking E (on the PKE lanes), my Slimer is working near flawlessly and the new code is a blast- IMO, less frustrating gameplay than before. Haven't had any random auto launches yet.
This pin is such a blast to play.

The GB mods on the mezelmods site are a joke imho. They are listed for months and months and are showing: coming soon, sold out etc etc. If you can't deliver your goods then don't list them I would think.

Quoted from CaptainNeo:

It looks like all the GI was switched out to pink (plus all scoops were lit with additional lighting). I am sure it looks fine in person, but LEDs in general look way over-saturated in pictures.

#550 3 years ago

Too many colors of LEDs can completely wash out the artwork. There is such a thing as over doing it.
