Quoted from sixtyfourbits:

Not to be annoying with so many questions, but I’m rebuilding my playfield, and I have some small thin clear plastic washers. Can anyone tell me where these go? They were off the pin before I got it.

Probably from under the slings.

My machine has those under the springs that hold the characters so i imagine the springs dont wear out the plastics. Not sure if that is where they go or not. When i tore down the playfield, i put them back there.

Hello, new to the club, as I recently acquired SP. My machine was a good find, with beautiful playfield, and no broken plastics, except one target, a replacement for is on the way. I had a couple of issues I was hoping for your thoughts on.

One issue is the seller didn’t leave me with backbox keys...he’s going to send me a new lock core/ key set, but I’m a little nervous about drilling out, or trying to unscrew the lock plate (it has those special star shaped screws). Appreciate tips on the best approach for getting this apart without causing damage to the translite or box. I will also need to figure out how to get the new lock and mechanism back together, and have read the latch and lock for this machine is a bit different from most other models, so I appreciate any grief you can save me, as a total newb and budding hobbyist.

Second issue is Stan mode never engages. What I experience when I make the Stan shot is a credit for Chef instead. I assume there is an issue with switch 47...which is a rollover...any tips on troubleshooting this? If the switch wasn’t closing, I understand the Stan mode not engaging, but not sure why the Chef mode WOULD engage...unless the software logic is written such that the VUK always registers for Chef unless the rollover switch for Stan engages.

Thank you for any thoughts on these issues!!

I am also new to this club, but I have had SP for quite some time. You pretty much have it figured out on your own. When the Stan shot doesn’t trigger, you get credit for Chef, as if you shot it straight up the middle.

Thank you! I hope to check it out later in the day. A bunch of parts arrived from Marco today, so I’m hoping to tinker after the holiday chaos settles down.

The Stan shot is hard enough as it is without not getting credit for it when you do make it. Adjust the rollover switch. Roll a ball over it to test and adjust it. Don't use your finger. That switch does tell the programming that the ball came from there and not straight up like a Chef shot.

Merry Christmas South Park Club! I hope everyone gets to play their game today.

Quoted from lowndes8:

Thanks but they want $5 a spring and then 20 to post to australia and then by the time i convert it to Australian dollars its $50 AUD for two springs inc postage
I contacted Marcos and they found a spring that will work for .89 cents.

Do you happened to have the part number of that substitute spring?

New to the club. I'm in the process of shopping my machine right now with LEDs, titan rubbers and a couple of other upgrades. The problem is that the toilet is in bad shape. I am looking for a decent used one, a new one, or a printed one. I contacted everyone that in the topic that said they have printed them, but no reply.

Does anyone else have a pin2dmd in their machine? I have the cb3 colorization but saw there is a version from hazurdous. I tried sending a message on vpuniverse but it says he can't get messages. Does anyone have files for his colorization or know how to contact him?

I have a few pin2dmd color files im using on my virtual pin. I emailed you what i have, not sure if its what you are looking for or not.

Thanks, I'll take a look. The vpin files are posted but I think I'll have to get in contact with the creator to get the files for a physical pin.

Stuck (closed) playfield switch somewhere. Go into the switch test menu and see which switch it is.

I had a similar problem, in my case it was the switch just above the plunger. If the ball in the shooter lane isn't resting on the switch above the plunger and causing it to close, the machine will think you launched the ball. Try turning on diagnostics and "test switch edges" and place the ball at rest in the shooter lane. If the switch above the plunger isn't registering, then that's your problem.

New to the club

Code 1.03

Even on extra easy the shots don’t stay in memory from ball to ball only for Kenny and cartman.

Is there no way to keep the progress on the other shots from ball to ball?

Games on location with very average players so it would be nice to have them carry over from ball to ball.

Searched and couldn’t find an answer

Thanks in advance!

Just bought my first pin so ive joined the club. Growing up my parents had a Haunted House pinball then later got a creature from the black lagoon, Williams pinch hitter, Corvette and a South Park. My dad sold the creature, haunted house, south park and Corvette for $8000 and is still kicking himself. He really wants the creature back.

I found this pin on Facebook for 3100. Kenny was split in half and I replaced him. Replaced the opto board for the 5th ball. I cleaned up the playfield a little bit with novus 2. It's a great looking machine but not perfect. Other than some broken plastics the only thing that needs to be fixed is the Cartman hole registers twice. Cartman also registers when you get it in Kenny.

I'm just realizing my toilet seat doesnt have the guide on it. I was wondering why I didn't remember the ball falling off the toilet when we had this pin before. Does anyone know where i can get the lid with the guide rail on it?

Also for the person who was having issues with the auto launch. My machine had the same problem and as someone else said it was the switch in the shooter lane.

It's foam, black foam like what's under your lockbar, or weather foam from your local hardware store.

Howdy! I could use a bit of help. Kenny shots are also registering as Cartman shots. I'm not sure how to begin troubleshooting...but after lifting up the playfield and looking at Switch 45, I see that one side of the Orange/Green wire is not connected to anything.

2 questions.

1, where does it connect to?
2, how would I go about figuring that out on my own? I'm looking at the manual...but Im a noob with all of this, and nothing jumps out at me.

Did anyone every get you any additional info on the 3D printed toilet? I downloaded the files and plan on taking them to my library to print. Just curious if you had any luck using the 3D printed toilet.

#1126 60 days ago

So, I've only ever played my friends south park..now I have one, it does not have video mode like his, which I understand was an early rom. But I don't have Mr Mackey mode..mine is Mr. Okay? And a few times on the display in modes it says effect 81, effect 07 ..like something is missing. It appears that I have the latest code though.. 1.03 I think it said..any ideas?

It's going on 3 years since I installed the prototype and it's holding up well. The game gets played often and I haven't had any issues with it.

Check the ROM version on the display board behind the DMD. It probably wasn't upgraded with the CPU ROMS. They need to be upgraded in sets.

Hi everyone,

I acquired a new to me South Park pin. Does anyone have the toilet replacement made? I'm looking to get one as mine has taken a beating and will need to be replaced at somepoint.

Also secondly, where have people gotten all the topper pieces for the top besides Cartman? I absolutely want/need to find one as that is a killer mod to me.

Thanks
Conrad

There is a 3D print file for the toilet you can use, its linked in this thread.

For all the Kids toppers, I found mine on ebay, search South Park 6 inch figure or something like that. i forgot the actually name of them, but thats how i found mine

Hi South Park gang. Was going through the basement and found a Fun 4 all brand Kenny figure. I think it is the one used in the game. Is it something I should post in the market place? Wasn't sure if there was still interest in owning a backup one. It is a duller finish then the ones I see sold online now.

Guys I just picked up a South park. Overall very nice shape. Only issue is Kenny is leaning to the right. The springs, coils ,and sleeves all seem fine. Both springs seems equal in resistance. And both coils do work. Anyone else have this issue? I could try replacing the springs I guess.

Right or wrong my Kenny leaned to his right to and was bumping the ramp with his head. Everything measured out fine and operate correctly for the most part. Except for when he leaned all the way right…he stayed all the way to his right. I was going to start replacing parts after a little cleaning didn’t do enough, but before that I put a small nut, washer, and bolt at the very far left (Kenny’s left) of the swing guide under Kenny and haven’t looked back since. That extra 1/8” stop preventing Kenny from leaning too far and did the trick. Just use a nut, washer, and bolt small enough not to bind up the “normal” movement. Now he works like the Kennys on other South Parks I have played. Again, right or wrong, it worked for me. I can lift the playfield and take a pic of it tomorrow if you like.
I will eventually replace the springs…someday.

I’ll give it a try. That’s exactly what mine is doing. I pulled the springs and they are the same height and seem to have take the same pressure to compress.

If Kenny was a flipper instead of a bash toy i would have said right off the bat check the coil sleeves. One might be bound up. Crap I should have thought of that earlier…time to grab the manual and see if I have any coil sleeves that are the correct size.

Hey all I’m working on a South Park and the inside of the toilet is in pretty bad shape. Is anyone remaking these now? Anyone have a NOS they want to part with?

I have not seen a NOS up for sale. So, I had my Library 3D print me a replacement. I think they charged me 15.00…I am waiting for the day that mine gets too beat up. The Thingverse files look pretty good, but the side walls are a touch thin. I guess the sides don’t see much action. Here are pics of my backup it you are curious. You can also look at the .stl file if you download them. There are actually several interesting South Park pinball files available. The toilet being the jewel.

That’s awesome. I don’t think my library has that kind of capability. But I know some guys that might. Thanks for the pictures and information l.
