Quoted from beltking:

My drops are a bit to left more than right but not bad. I’ll try to adjust next time it’s up. Yes backglass looks washed out only when lights on. When off looks fine so it’s the light making it like this. I don’t think any of the little issues are concerning.
[quoted image]

None of the problems are show stoppers. I love the game. Spooky is going to send me a new amp and speaker which I'm sure will get the sound working fine. They have great support. I just expected the game match the quality of my original and I feel they missed the mark.

#1352 1 year ago

Here's a side by side comparison of my OG vs the CE.

Agree backglass looks washed out. I’m
concerned by these other rookie mistakes too.

#1354 1 year ago

Maybe there's a setting to lower the brightness of the led strip?

#1355 1 year ago
Quoted from Deez:

I hope that's the case regardless of washout. I prefer my backboxes to be pretty dim, especially when playing.

[quoted image]

For the price of this game I’d lose my fucking mind if this game wasn’t exactly like or even better than the original. What do you mean aren’t concerning???
Bill comes to $10k and “meh I guess it’s alright” is the defended response???

#1357 1 year ago
Quoted from Deez:

I emailed spooky support. Something is definitely wrong. If the bass is turned up passed a whisper the speaker sounds like it's completely distorted and blown.
I will say overall I'm pretty disappointed in the quality of the machine compared to my previous game. The backglass doesn't fit very well, the playfield

No it wasn't damaged during delivery. Those clips look like someone took a hammer to them to get them to fit into the lockdown receiver. See how they're all twisted up? The drop targets are just installed crooked. They aren't loose. This was all done at the factory.

Those playfield hangers look horrible! They look homemade. The metal needs to be bent on a proper metal bending machine.

That’s just part of the boutique charm.

Maybe these would work? Looks like sterns won’t.

[quoted image][quoted image]

Since you've seen both versions of TNA, would you say the CE backglass is identical to the OG? Perhaps they used a different type (or color temperature) of strip LED this time...and/or it's a bit too bright??

I can't find a picture of the OG with the backlight off but it just appears like the colors are deeper on the OG like the blues and reds and purples are much richer. The CE looks like the colors were lightened up a ton so the purple looks more like a magenta. The actual art is identical just the colors are different.

The led strips seem much brighter than the originals. Ideally there would be a setting to lower the brightness (you can set them to turn off during gameplay). I may try unhooking one of the three strips.

Friendly PSA. You're going to want to glue the shit out of the ribbon cables on the reactor display because they aren't locking connectors and fall out every single game. I covered both in a ton of hot glue. Looks like spooky just put a tiny dab which didn't hold at all.

You need to quit posting because your posts are keeping me up at night. I can only surmise your game was put together on a Friday night or a Monday morning.

There have been quite a few other games delivered so far. Has anyone else had ANY of these issues? Because, my game is set to be done next week and I’m “getting very concerned”.

#1372 1 year ago

Spooky have used hot glue on every game I've owned. TNA and Rnm in particular. I think the new system is different so doesn't need it?

On that, is TNA running on the new Pinataur or the OG system?

Ahh come on man don’t let paying $10k for a potential “project TNA” get you down!

It had a slight dab of hot glue on there. It just needed more and it's fine.

The light side rails from hooked look amazing btw.

For real. Is anyone else having a kickass, positive experience? Hit glueing a cable is no big deal, I get it, just want to hear some positive news here

#1376 1 year ago

My whole family is crushing this game and we've probably put near 50 bucks in quarters through it already. Kids love it.

Had two "issues":
- The usb cable connecting the LCD score display row had shaken loose in transit. I plugged it back in.
- The art on the cab front is "just' a little off and noticeable against the straight lines of the lockdown bar and coin door. A replacement decal is already on the way.

My Drops look fine. Maybe a tad to the left. One or two of the targets feel less sensitive than their neighbors. I'll take care of that when I put the decals on this weekend. I also see the backlight brightness others have mentioned but it's not bad. It's just different. Considering the reactor shaker motor just knocked over a few of my action figures... I won't be surprised if I have to end up plugging something back in at some point. Oh no it's too awesome.

Absolutely loving this game and glad I got it. Been looking sideways at Stranger Things and Star Wars ever since it arrived. Love the dark powdercoat way more than I thought I would (again, a stern heavy collection)

Not telling anyone they are wrong for being picky (you should be!) but I am really loving this one.

#1377 1 year ago

The CE looks like the colors were lightened up a ton so the purple looks more like a magenta. The actual art is identical just the colors are different.

My CE also looks washed out. I noticed it once I set it up and wondered if that was just the way they were originally, I guess they were not. I looked a backbox light adjustment but didn't find one. The real test would be to swap backglasses with an original run and find out if its the backglass or the lighting.

When I have more time, I'll need to adjust my sound also.

On a positive note....I'm having a blast playing it. It feels good to shoot. Its the only pin that the whole family thinks is cool.

# 10 with butter cab delivered today! Only issue .. no room to put it anywhere!

#1379 1 year ago

Man this game is so amazing. Just beat reactor 6 and was one target away from beating 7. I'm sweating bullets. Doesn't get much better than this.

Post pics when unboxing! We need to see the butter!

#1383 1 year ago
Quoted from lpeters82:

There are three settings that control the base on the amplifier. Dial 1 and Dial 2 control the subwoofer and Dial 3 controls the bass from the speakers. Those three really all need to be in balance to get the base sounding good. Here's my take on the amp settings. I typically do these in the music test and cycle between the songs. Personally, I like strong base, but I don't need it sounding like a teenagers car.
Dial 1: Subwoofer Volume (Small Dial) - All the way down and then dial up. Typically just a tiny fraction of a turn. They tend to be super sensitive.
Dial 2: Subwoofer Crossover (Small Dial) - All the way down and then dial up. Typically between 1/8 and 1/4 of a turn.
Dial 3: Treble - All the way up and then dial back around 1/8 turn.
Dial 4: Base - All the way down and then dial up. Typically between 1/4 to 1/2 turn.
Dial 5: Volume - All the way up and then dial back around 1/8 turn.

Thanks! I just did this and it got my audio back in the ball park again.

I wonder towards the end we could get a count how many folks paid for Butter.

I did not and glad I did not. I’d freak out if there was a small imperfection… it’s inevitable.

#57 shipped yesterday

#1395 1 year ago

#18 shipped earlier this week too. Delivery expected early next week. IT'S HAPPENING

I have butter on my Halloween and it's spectacular. I wish I got it on TNA but couldn't justify the cost. I do get nervous I'm going to ding it but whatever.
