So excited to be part of the RS club starting today. A fully restored real beauty, with NOS playfield, new Red face, new Ted face, new UV printed decals, new lampcards, and with many-many new or refreshed parts.
The longest part of restoration was a reproduction phase of faces from first design/protos until the latest layer of paint.

Do you guys have a high-quality (not original) Pinsound package for RS?

After restoration, we have 1 set of Red and Ted face as spare. Stronger than original, vivid colors. PM me if you would like to get them. In case of more demand, we are able to create a small batch.

Red & Ted faces are on the way to USA, sold, thanks for interest. We've only 4 pairs available, and we won't create more, this is too time consuming.

Quoted from Indusguys:

Hey guys, just picked up a RS yesterday and it doesn't have the factory shaker. I have done a little looking around for a new shaker kit but I haven't found anything. Is there a direct replacement kit for this game?

Never heard about replacement kit.
Option 1: if you are a DIY guy, build your own. Contact Averell, he built a cool shaker for his WMS IJ.
Option 2: Pinsound team is working on shaker (plug&play to Pinsound board).

Quoted from dirtbag66:

Okay gentlemen, there's a good chance I will be joining this club (finally) very soon. Got a game on the chopping block, got the unofficial "okay" from the wife last night, and there's a Road Show for sale up north, so I have one important question to ask all of you before I take the plunge:
How much of a pain in the ass are Red and Ted to fix/maintain?
Any/all advice and feedback will be greatly appreciated!

Great summary:

#1153 2 years ago
Quoted from Axl:

I talked to NinJaBooT about doing the Red & Teds Road Show. All the aprons are rusted due to lack of proper(?) paint.
Does anyone have the correct dimensions on the apron?

I can prepare a drawing during the weekend.
I guess top view only is OK.

Do NOT use IDC. They are a pain in a$$, and when the connection starts to fail, intermittently, is will drive you bonkers.

What is the better choice?

Quoted from chinosts:

Anyone know where I can get a set of cabinet decals for my Road Show? My cab needs some love and the decals aren't bad but are faded in places. Oh there is also the swastika that someone scratched into the side that I'd also like to remove

PM sent.

#1229 2 years ago
Quoted from dirtbag66:

Okay, thought if I played the game enough I would be able to answer my own question, but it hasn't happened so here I am.
How do you get to San Francisco? I've been to every other city (including Seattle and L.A.), but the game will not let me go to San Francisco! I've even traveled cross country multiple times in a game and they just have me go to Seattle or L.A. again!
Is there something I'm missing here?


City Scenes (modes)

Each of the cities on the US map corresponds to a mode. That's right, eighteen of 'em! The cities are roughly in a grid, 6 columns by 3 rows. The top row of lights is white, the middle row is yellow, and the bottom row is orange. It's not a perfect grid, though; in fact, from going from right to left, the colors always rotate in the same order: white, orange, yellow.
To begin a mode, shoot either the Start City Scene scoop or the Blast Hole when the Start City Scene globe light is flashing. You cannot start modes during multiball, or when you have locked two balls and Ted is asleep. You also cannot have more than one mode running at a time (but see bugs).
The currently flashing mode is always one of the next two cities on the map (going from right to left), so your first mode is either New York (white) or Miami (orange) -- the rightmost 2 cities on the map. This means that you can never play two modes of the same color in a row. The exception to this rule is the West Coast cities - you can reach any of the three cities on the coast.
The currently flashing mode changes when you hit a bumper or standup of the same color as a city that you can reach at that time. So for example, at the beginning of the game, New York is the flashing mode, but hitting an orange bumper or standup changes the mode to Miami; and hitting a while bumper or standup changes it back to New York.

Quoted from dirtbag66:

I know all of that. Just wondering if there is something special I need to do to get to San Fran! I've literally never seen that mode.

Another hint: don't go to Salt Lake city (yellow) before final city (San Francisco: yellow). You can never play two modes in the same color in a row.

Quoted from ClarkKent:

I would only install a PinSound board into my Roadshow if there would be an Endprodukt-like reorchestered original theme available...

Effect, callouts in RS are OK. You can change the atmosphere of the game with new songs, this is an easy process.

Quoted from FiatsRUs:

I was having trouble with the sensors in front of the bulldozer losing sensitivity, or quitting altogether, and I had to adjust the pots on the eddy boards frequently to get the sensors working again. I did some Pinside research and it seems that the problem is with the 10K pot on the eddy board getting worn and moving as a result of vibration from game play and the shaker. I replaced the old pots with a type of Bourns potentiometer that requires 25 turns on the adjusting screw to go from 0 to 10K ohms versus about 3/4 of a turn on the old one for the same range. My thinking is that the adjustment is not only more accurate, but they should be much less prone to movement from the shaking. Time will tell but it is working out great so far.
Note that the white goo in the picture is silicone that will be clear when it cures.

Good idea, thanks for sharing. I will try 3296 series, that looks more convenient (adjustment at top).

Quoted from PokerJake:

Pinstadium was made for this game:

Before pic is unrealistic. I know it is hard to take a good pic, but it is not real.
If you like Pinstadium, enjoy. I don't like it, it is an outrage against charm of pinball.

Quoted from nikpinball:

Anyone else's roadshow have a red board in the middle? When I looked at ipdb all the boards are green but mine appears to be different.

Do you need the bottom and top also in red? I can do it for you
I have some green left, and can do it in red/blue/black/white.

Quoted from Coyote:

Hey guys -
Is your U9 populated on the sound board (DCS)?

Mine is empty.

Quoted from wiggy07:

Hello everyone, I have a question about the Road Show I own. The insert in the middle of the playfield that is above the 2x,3,x,4x,5x,6x that reads Light Extra Ball never activates during game play. I know the bulb is good because the insert does work during the game when the lights flash and also during the attract mode. I also rebuilt the connector to the board under the playfield where the insert is located. I was wondering if anyone knows where the bulb is linked or activated from under the playfield and during game play. I also looked at the light matrix and everything on the matrixs work. Thanks for the help

Is extra ball enabled in the menu?

#1406 2 years ago

Ah, got your point.
You have to score bonus multipliers by shooting bridge outs (Ramps), 2x, 3x... until 6x.
After 6x, next award is extra ball - with red light.
You have to do it in the same ball. After ball drain, bonus resets (unless you have keep bonus award).

Quoted from chinosts:

Hey lurch....
Its definitely the mount position but there is just no way I can mount this bracket because there is no room for the motor to fit. The motor was mounted on the right side of the bracket when I got it but of course this meant the gears didnt work correctly. When the motor is mounted on the left everything moves smoothly but I can not fit it into the machine.
I really need the correct bracket for the game

Call them

#1500 1 year ago
Quoted from kechlesurf:

New problem popped up over the weekend but I am thinking it is an easy fix. During game play, the game resets. It happens at different time from when you plunge the ball to start the game, when it hits the blast zone, bulldozer blade, etc. Any ideas of where i should look first to diagnose the issue?

Quoted from Inkochnito:

I'm in need of two simple parts for Red's eyes.
The plastic eyelid link 03-8479 and the centering flange 03-8486.
These are $3 and $2 each at Marco's Specialties, but shipping to the Netherlands will kill the deal completely.
Can someone who is ordering at Marco's help me out?
Order these parts for me and put them in a simple bubble envelope.
If you will send them to me for more aceptable fees, I'll be more than happy to PayPal you the owed money.
Maybe someone might consider it being a donation....

The problematic one is available in Germany:
The other one is very simple, I can print for you, just send me dimensions.

Or the easiest way: let's someone from US help to you

#1573 1 year ago
Quoted from Inkochnito:

Yes, I know.
It's also available in the Netherlands, but only the eyelid link.
Not the centering flange.
Sometimes the simple things are hard to get....

In Germany...

Quoted from Dallas_Pin:

Picked up a super clean RS a few weeks ago. Upon shopping it out, I noticed the red circled area is missing a post. Is this post an optional post to make the shot harder or is this post needed. If you have this post, do you mind posting a photo of it?

Roadshowers; tracking down the gremlins in a Roadshow and on the left spinner switch the white wire is disconnected (located under the Roadshow sign). Does anyone have a pic of which lug the white wire belongs to on this switch? Pic of the switch [quoted image]

Quoted from soren:

Working on a software modification to Road Show.
What bugs do the game have as of the rev. L-6 software. Anything of high desire to have fixed?

Do you mean fixes, or adding new features?

#1613 1 year ago
Quoted from soren:

The main motivation for this is to be able to play the cities in any order. I have a concept for that ready which incorporates the special status of Alburquerque and the west coast. More on that later.
If there are bugs why not take them on as well.
Does the Houlton city show itself in other phases of the game than Super payday?
Does anyone know the exact conditions of Payday bonus displayed as 0,000,000?

What about random order, ALL cities on the map (except West Coast)?

#1620 1 year ago
Quoted from LargemouthAss:

I am having problems with balls being stuck in the lock shot/spinner ramp. Happens maybe 1/3 of the time. The balls get freed when the game goes into the stuck ball mode but this takes time and often results in modes timing out. There is a lot of stuff on the playfield preventing me from diagnosing the problem. I did not see anything obvious on the underside of the playfield. Is this a common issue? Any ideas on where to start or how to resolve this?

First check this microswitch, this is responsible for ball detection above vertical upkicker coil:

20190311_150906 (resized).jpg20190311_150917 (resized).jpg
#1627 1 year ago

Normally, this is the sequence:
1. Ball moves to ball trough
2. Microswitch detection, switch registers
3. Blinking flasher
4. Upkicker kicks

So you are OK until point 4?

You should enter the "blast zone" hole for the skill shot, not Ted's mouth.

He is not talking about skill shot, but would like to plunge into Ted's mouth to start multiball after lock 2 - I guess.
