Great pin guys, played it last week and it was a blast!
While we were there Larry was talking about the upcoming tourney, said there would be a AMH machine there. I take it that one is yours as well?
It is almost like the switch needs to be a different shape as it seems to get stuck on the high point of the switch and the start of the slit in the PF.
Only thing we would need to look at is how that affects the balls coming though that return entering the top of that orbit.
Quoted from PersonX99:
FYI, for those who like to "mix it up", substitute warm-white 4-smd leds in the smaller round inserts. Because the inserts are multi-color, the warm white has an interesting effect on the insert colors as well as the overall look of the pf. The "chop" inserts really show with warm-white. As always, leds are personal preference...I just wanted to share my experience.
Would love to see a pic of this.
Quoted from Shapeshifter:
Thanks - wires look ok but guess there might be a connection not making good contact in the plastic block.
Can't now remember if any of these issues discussed?
1. Ball gets stuck behind drop target?
2. Ball gets stuck somewhere unseen at back of playfield. Can't see where and when I lift playfield it re-appears. Have to re-start game as game says a message about checking a switch.
Loving the game - just need to get it dialled in 100%
Yes been discussed. Check throughout the thread.
Quoted from outcida:
Thanks guys! I've only built the one prototype so far. Any thoughts on whether or not I should back light the sign or not based on the photos? Once I have the design finalized and have some of these built up I'll post them on my site.
Does the sign in the video have the backlight?
Quoted from outcida:
The sign in the video is not back lit.
If the backlight shines throught the plastic I say back light it.
It would also say it would be cool to make a frame for around the sign and add that to the mod for a more 3D look, plus you could design it so it kept the light directed into the back of the sign.
Quoted from snakesnsparklers:
Put me down for one! Based on the photos do not backlight the sign with that bulb at least. It looks good with no backlight or maybe try a much dimmer one so the sign isn't washed out.
I am questioning if that is just the picture.
Would kind of like to see a video with the backlight.
Quoted from SilverballNut:
If you can backlight it so it looks even like a lit up sign that would be great. If it looks harsh like a single light back there, then I'd skip that. Ideally if you could make a small box that had the light in it and the sign in front then that may be best so you won't see light leakage behind, but may be more trouble than it's worth.
Hey I just said that..
