Now I understand what's going on. I just lift up on the dispenser so the screws do not hit that steel flap. Mine has those screws.

Gotcha - I may try hitting that plate the screws go into with a hammer a bit to see if that helps.

Thanks for the help!

Is there an inside metal frame for the card holder? I have the outside metal frame but it looks like there is another piece missing.

How in the heck do you put in a colordmd on this game!?!

My original instructions (at ColorDMD) made it more complicated than it has to be. There are several comments if you search for ColorDMD. You can do it from the front. I’m about to swap mine into a nicer cabinet. I will make notes and post over the weekend.

Yes there is a metal sleeve for the dispenser. Please post photos so we can see what you are missing.

Thanks

Take the glass in front of the DMD off, then take the big plastic piece off, then take the DMD out, put the ColorDMD in, put the card in the back (screw it into the board), plug it in.

Joined the club today. Got in cheap but it needs a lot of work. Will need new mpu. Optional mods shortly will be new decals, new t mounding and and led lights.

Mine also needed a new MPU. I went with the new one from Weebly for $150 shipped. T-molding I found at my local MicroCenter for $10 for 25 feet. Good luck!

Does anyone else think that 7 degrees is too steep for Slugfest? To make the playfield 7 degrees the back legs are extended fully. Seems like that can't be right. If all four are set the same the game still plays it just takes a little longer for the ball to drain. It is not a pinball machine so I just don't get the theory. The ramp angle and bat is what will determine if the ball will make it into the bleachers or not. Not the angle of the entire machine. Thoughts?

Are you using 2" or 3" leg levelers? Also curious about optimal angle.

All 4 legs have 3" feet.
It is silly keep that steep angle unless someone can tell me why.

Is there anywhere producing new Control Panel Overlays? Planetary Pinball didn't have any sort of ETA when a new one would be available.

Does anyone have a scan of the bleacher plastic?

Page 16 of the manual states "approximately 7 degrees".

You are right, I read that. My point is there is no need for that much pitch.

Looking for a players condition Slugfest. Located in NJ. Prefer pickup

Can anyone double check on my work here? My first experience with a Wpc 89.

Saw some pictures in previous threads. I have the game starting up fine now. Getting one bong but no sound. Onto the next issue.
