Quoted from wylcot:

I wish someone had encountered the same issue.

I have the exact same problem, so your wish is granted .
The bad news is that I haven't fixed it (yet).
I did see a topic about this problem once though, but I'm not sure where it was. Can't help you at the moment, but once I get to work on the problem, I'll post it here (I hope you do the same). It might take quite a while though before I get to working on the game.
Good luck, I hope you'll be able to fix it!

Well !
It's a 50/50 situation.
I'm happy that i'm not alone to have that problem.
But as we won't be able to work on it at the same time...

Do u remember if that topic was on Pinside, or somewhere else? (did little point would rather make it a 60/40 )

What mods does everyone recommend for stargate??
I just got one, so I would like to see what's out there.

Doing a playfied swap on my Stargate...and a bit more. I was able to source a decent uninstalled, mostly populated playfield...although it was a sample playfield. I sent it to Chris Hutchins and he touched it up and cleared it, looks outstanding...so far I am pretty happy with how it is going back together. The underside is done...interestingly the top is taking much longer to reassemble.

Thank you. I can't wait to flip the switch and bring it back to life. A buddy of mine is working on an updated LED rope light solution. This being a sample playfield it was missing a couple posts so I had to add them. Also there is a second set of 89 light sockets inder the pyramid...the production playfield has the holes painted but not drilled out. I am debating whether to activate them or not.

Could you just go ahead and sell me that Andromeda?

Ha ha...I appreciate your interest, I just finished a complete restoration of my Andromeda last month and plan on keeping it in my collection for quite some time. Complete cabinet repair and repaint. Playfield was repaired by Chris Hutchins just like on Stargate. I figured I would get some crap about the yellow powder coat but I am quite happy with the appearance.

Okay, so i think i'm onto something (or at least I hope)
I'll need a little help.

So, in a nutshell, my pyramid doesn't lift during Glider mission.

Someone told me the MA1334 sensor board was in charge of this, on the french forum.

Notice that the wires that interest me are in 3 and 8.

Now, on my 2A15J1 connector, 8 is empty.
IMG_20200227_231137118 (resized).jpg

Could someone PLEASE check theirs and let me know, or show me, what wire they have there ???

Hmm ! Thanks !
I realized I was looking at the wrong side of the playfield, thus the wrong board.
So i changed the MA2108 with a MA1338 without the jumper, but nothing changed.
Still no move from that bloody pyramid in game...

Thanks anyway @bonk

Quoted from cobra18t:

I just made my own Stargate RGB LED Ring. This one reacts to the game since the original had two modes, flashing and solid on.

cobra18t , installed you led Stargate ring, it's great, big fan. I assume it can take on some additional programming, colors, etc?

I would advise others to inquire about this if he has any left..

Thanks, zen! I am glad you like it.

It is running an Arduino Pro Micro and can be modified with the Arduino IDE and the FastLED library. I can send you the code as a starting point if you are interested. I went with the original movie's blue water/white sparkle stargate, but it is easy to change to another color.

If anyone else is interested in a ring, let me know. I don't currently have all the parts so I would need to order a few things.

Added the Pyramids and freshly plated wireforms...really wish they made a new plastic set for this game.

Replacing the right flipper switch and noticed the new one I got from Marco has 4 connection points where the original only has 3. The part numbers match up to PBRs listing. Can I still use this or should I order a different switch? Thanks for any help.

Update: Called Steve at Pinball Resource. This is the right switch and since there are two terminals together on the front row only one of them needs to have a connection. Was confused since the switch in my machine only had 3 terminals.

Those ramps look bad ass!!! Did you powder coat them ?

#1274 3 days ago
Quoted from bounoun:

Yes, both ramps, both up-kicker housings (normally just steel) and the Apron. I have the decals for the ramps but am waiting to see if I like it better without them. Color is a metallic black...I forgot the actual name.

Powder coating those metal upkickers looks awsome! A few months ago i received a "new" playfield (the old one was sanded down and the playfield was digital printed on it). Soon I am going to start the rebuild, i am def getting the metal up kickers powder coated, looks really cool.

those ramp decals are so ugly, i am never going to put them back.

Where did you get the playfield done?

It was a small project done by a german member of flippermarkt.de

Here are some pictures, the playfield looks stunning.

That looks great. It gives hope for all owners of games with bad playfields of which there aren't any NOS or reproduction playfields available.

Wasn't there a rumor that MIRCO was considering making new Stargate Playfields?

Ya, that is what I have heard and saw in his thread.

That's right, but that was quite a long time ago. I'm not sure if that's still their plan, or if licensing may be a problem, or ....?
