Quoted from Marvin:

in just that pic of a small part of the playfield...
1. robot ball trap on every machine it was ever installed on.
2. spiral sign
3. spiral behind the spiral sign
4. lamp over mini PF (replacing stock one though)
5. gumballs in machine
6. side art
7. backwall art
8. space ship
9. skull next to spaceship, assuming its on the plastic and not from the backboard image, can't tell for sure
10.target stickers
11. cannon next to spaceship, same caveat as #9 though
12. pyramid on right
13. plasma disk on right
14. powder coated wireform (2)
15. possibly gumball machine lighting
not all of these affect gameplay, but this is maybe 1/6 of the playfield and there are at lease 13 non standard items, probably 16 that are listed. And I might have missed something.
I'd bet there is a rocket down low, a slot machine, a coin on edge, a lamp in the pops, a car in the pops, a light up camera on the front of the mini pf. with all teh crap added to this particular game I'm surprised that the owner does not have the clock mod on the clock millions target.

Thanks for the detailed reply. Here's a full picture....you were right about the rocket.

Sorry to get off topic guys

Oh I had the car, but you have it in an unusual place, got the slot machine too, how could I forget the ubiquitous lit scoop?? doh. I didn't even bother listing the piano, you almost never see a TZ w/o it.
I'm not ripping you for having the stuff, it's your game enjoy it. Just that someone asked whats not stock (flipper buttons), so I answered.

You forgot the extra spiral magnet

#605 53 days ago

Also upgraded powerfield switches

#606 53 days ago
Quoted from Meegis:

neither were in the original image. I saw the switches in the later image. I also left out the bad lighting, including the strips under the plunger lanes divider Not everything done is terrible, but the ball trap stuff is just stupid to me, robot, car, things like that. the piano, usually, is well done, the powerfield switches are nice, new switches and less blocking the view of the ball. Pyramid, plasma disk, UFO, pointelss clutter in my view. powder coated wireforms, yuk. But like I said, not my money. If I was given that game most of that stuff would be stripped before I ever even got around to turning it on.

You can just make out the spiral in the original..

You can't even see the right orbit where that's located in the pic.

#609 53 days ago

This wouldn't happen when you are having a bad game. Has to happen when you are on a good run.

The added spiral is above the camera Lane. Factory was only one and it was above the right flipper

#611 52 days ago

Or am I mixing it up?

#612 52 days ago
Quoted from Meegis:

production has 1 magnet above the shooter lane, and one magnet above the left upper flipper. the third one was removed and was in the right orbit, it would catch a ball from the shooter lane and one on that side would catch a ball from the lock kick-out on that side.

Not so much stuck as came to a rest. Ball came up the lane and seemed to have a little backspin on it and here is where it stoped took a quick pic then a little nudge and back to playing

I got a ball stuck on this wire gate thing today on Radical. I shook the everloving shit out of the game to try to get it loose - nope!

In an even crazier balancing act than what I achieved on my Power Play last year (ref https://pinside.com/pinball/forum/topic/post-a-photo-of-the-strange-place-your-ball-got-stuck/page/10#post-3936673 ) ...

...check out what happened last night while playing T2! I had a friend over who witnessed it; he was just as stunned as I was!
