Hey there, new to the club with a police force I need to repair.
Anyone knows where I can find the drop targets akd shooting range decals?

#302 76 days ago

What can I do about cheap drains down the left side of the pops. Most often happening from the skillshot kickout. Need a way to bump the ball over more when it glances the long ring along the left side.

Adjust leg levelers to game play that suits you

Have you tried bending the arm of the kickout a little either which way so the ball comes out at a different angle?

My ramps came in today! Can anyone tell which one is new?

Were you able to buy the center ramp without buying the set? If so, who is selling them?
thx

#309 74 days ago

Only Starship Fantasy reproduces them because they have the Williams molds. I’m wondering if they got them from Illinois Pinball when they closed. Because of this, they only sell them as a set.

#310 74 days ago

Yep, had to buy the set. I got mine from the Little Shop of Games in Florida. They came quick and look beautiful. So nice to be able to see through the center ramp to the inserts with point values. They e not cheap, but I got a good deal on the machine so thought it was worth it. This game seems to have come up in value a bit recently as well.

Bump

#314 68 days ago

Looking to possibly update my Police Force game ROM. I'm currently running L2 and I know that L4 is available. Anyone know what the differences are? I'm also wondering what chip the System 11B's are using. Thanks.

#315 67 days ago

Ok, probably a silly question and a long shot, but I just joined the PF club. My machine is in decent shape, everything is working, seems to have day 1 or very early mylar so the playfield is very nice. Only thing I'm missing... The topper. Does anyone have a topper they'd be willing to part with? If not, has anyone done any topper mods or topper replacements that have turned out good?

Thanks!

#316 67 days ago

Anyone know when the reproduction playfields will be available?

#317 67 days ago

You might give this a try

https://www.aliexpress.com/item/32896919850.html

There's tons of options if you google police light bars. I imagine one should work for you. Sucks that the original is gone from your game, though.

Is anyone even working on this?

#319 67 days ago

I'm busy not reproducing but repainting one for a swap with mine...

Wow. I have my share of System 11's and Police Force art has the worst durability of the 11's I own. Mine has a ton of mylar so it still looks pretty good, but where there wasn't protection it is very worn.

Are you planning on clearcoating it when you are done?

Yep, will clearcoar it. Will actually give it to someone I know for it.
It had mylar but does look quite bad where there wasn't any. Paint layer is very thin, and coating is non-existent.
Playfield currently in the machine is even worse.

Buthamburg : good to know, if I f*** my repaint I know I will have an option

I’m looking for a used police force car assemble. The motor pully brackets and all. Don’t need the police car. Using this mec for a home brew game. Anyone have an idea of where I can get one? PM me please. Found one on eBay but it’s untested. Aka. Likely broke.

New lane guides, posts, LEDs, and Titan rings on the left. Old on the right.43C9F11F-77A0-4995-948C-D1A3A74079EC (resized).jpeg

Top half of playfield done minus bumpers.

I replaced the single SMD bulbs in the topper with these new 2 SMD Titan fluted dome ones. Makes a big difference!

Better photo that accurately shows the results. Would highly suggest Titan’s fluted LEDs.

Comet's faceted LEDs are pretty much identical, I'm fond of them. I think Chicago Gaming used them as OEM for MMr.

#330 35 days ago

When I saw them used on Medieval Madness and Attack from Mars, I decided to use them in our games. They were originally made by Nifty with a proprietary base.

#331 30 days ago

I replaced the flipper brackets with WPC brackets to allow me to use linear springs. It turns out cleaning them with stainless steel cleaner works great.

I replaced all single LED bullet style bulbs from Titan with these faceted ones. The difference is AMAZING!

Dark photo that better represents the light overall.

Any news on playfields?

#335 10 days ago

I think they were coming end of the year or early next.

Guys when you advance the multiplier to special w/l is there in actual shot you need to make? I've owned the game for years but today I noticed when I got the special w/l light on once in awhile a new sound I never heard before would go off and I got lucky on a multiball and cradled the balls and when it started going through the high scores a new music track started. My four year old son immediately ran over as he never heard it do that. Anybody experience that?
