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 1 year 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 1 year 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 1 year 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.

#314 1 year 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 1 year 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 1 year ago

Anyone know when the reproduction playfields will be available?

#317 1 year 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.

Quoted from whitey:

Is anyone even working on this?

#319 1 year 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.

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 11 months 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 11 months 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.

Any news on playfields?

#335 10 months ago

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

#336 10 months ago

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?

Thank you, Having car (motor is good) and diverter issues, but other than that it plays pretty good. It will not let me get into the test menu so not sure whats gong on there.

had my first magnetized coil stop. Was starting to wonder if that was really a thing.

Bad solder joints on the motor or reverse relay.
Diverter cam needs to be cleaned or replaced.
Menu switches not working might be a bad coin door ground wire.

I will re-solder wires on motor and I put in a freshly rebuilt relay and that did not help.

rebuilt the diverter and it is now working

I will check ground on coin door

#349 8 months ago

one new issue, not sure what I did

Everything on the brown power wire has stopped working, basically ALL up kickers (4 of them). Any ideas? I checked fuses.

They where working before I swapped motor relay board, fixed magnetized flipper coil stop.

Fuse F-2a on the aux power supply. W-6 zero ohm resistor is bad.
