That’s great looking! What type/brand paint did you use for the words “Scared Stiff” on the cabinet?
Where does this clear plastic piece go? Found it on the orbit between the Dead Heads and the Laboratory
Quoted from robertmee:
I think you're right on Roger Sharpe
Thanks! I think you are both right! That third signature will be a difficult one to decipher.
I bought a Mantis spider hole protector and it was a very tight fit. They cut it to allow for some adjustment but it was still tight and required a bit of gentle persuasion with a hammer. Finally got it in but it appeared to alter the ball trajectory form the VUK, causing it not to get up to the ramp. Has anyone had this same issue? Took it off and there were no problems.
Quoted from whthrs166:
The geometry of the VUK to the ramp flap is very touchy. Try tweaking (bending) the angle of the VUK just a bit either way checking how it fires each time. You can usually dial it in after a few tries. This adjustment is so touchy that I have had to adjust it after leveling a game.
Thanks! That did the trick.
I had to saw off part of the end of the protector because of the tight fit but I think it worked out ok.
Quoted from Ratiganpin:
Hi, could anyone tell me how you program in messages onto the DMD display?
I finally became a proud owner of Scared Stiff just over a year ago, and the previous owner had put some great little birthday messages for himself and his family that appear on the DMD on start up on or after the given dates, so I would like to delete these and make some of my own if possible.
I have tried a factory reset, but this hasn't deleted these messages, and they look far too good to simply be the personal message option using the coin door control buttons (although I haven't learned how to properly use that function yet either).
Is this something that has to be programmed externally on a computer and then added to the machine via a memory stick, or some such?
You’re probably seeing the birthdays the developers put in. These will come up on the dates when your power up the pin. They’re like an Easter Egg so they can’t be erased.
