    Hope I am putting this post in the right slot.

    Next week I have my first pinball turning up NIB, Ghostbusters Premium. I some questions for the pinside collective.

    Are there any particular setup things I should be aware of, anything to make it run at its best?

    I have seen alot of mods etc, what are the must haves?

    And the one I have been really thinking about. When you habe a new machine is there any point in waxing the playfield etc?

    Thanks

    Make sure you update the code to latest version
    Level the game
    Wax the playfield; hard carnauba wax
    Possibly change the balls to fresh new ones; often the factory balls that ship with new machines are crap
    If cliffy (or other) protectors are available, put them on ASAP

    There is a club thread for owners of #Ghostbusters that will probably be helpful: https://pinside.com/pinball/forum/topic/ghostbusters-club-we-got-one
