External active sub.

Haha I ment base like default not bass like a subwoofer. Any recommendations for speakers?

Quoted from Kevlar:

How does your bridge hold balls? do you mean its collapsed but the gap isn't large enough for a ball to pass through?

Yes, that’s it.

Quoted from HoakyPoaky:

This question got buried many pages back, but I'm looking for the "mintnilla" sticker that some people randomly received in their goodie bags.
If you you have one & are open to selling it, send me a PM
Thanks!

I contacted stern, they only came in the pro games, or at least that's the response I got.

#7055 3 months ago

Code Champion - What is this? I know it is new, but what is the ruleset to beat it?

Thanks and sorry if this is a simple/dumb question.

I think it's just a nice tribute to Lyman. Unattainable any other way except being Lyman.

Link to his memorial service is here:

Well good to know, but still looking for one

#7059 3 months ago

I know, I want one too. So, after you get one, I'd like the next one. I have a portion of game room wall with game trinkets I've gathered thru the years

This is such a fun game to play. I’d avoided knowing anything about Planet X until playing it myself. Played a couple games this afternoon only focused on making it to that mode, got there, and beat it first time sight unseen! Such a fun mode to play and a great callout/video clip at the end of it.

New code is really awesome. Love the additions.

#7069 3 months ago
Quoted from Kevlar:

External active sub.

Agree. I’ve upgraded speakers on four Pro models now, a different brand of 5.25” every time. The difference seems large on paper (the specs) but reality was the change was insignificant mostly. Maybe with heavily music-intensive machines like GoT it was better, but the only big shift comes when you add a sub. And the bigger the better.

#7070 3 months ago

Had something odd happen just now. Beat Gigan on ball 1 pretty quickly. Neither ramp nor the scoop were lit to qualify another mode or select city.

Do you have to play GZ multiball or something else to move cities/get new modes now?

#7071 3 months ago

This is odd... If it's not a 10-character thing, is it a pro/prem/Le thing?

If Tank Attack mode is ready it will be the only thing available at the scoop. Could that have been it?

#7073 3 months ago

Is there a solution for stucky ball at Mecha's left arm ? I checked topic index. Thought this may be a common problem ?

#7074 3 months ago

Timing for stuck ball couldn't have been worse, lol
I just got machine levelled nicely and 2nd game in on ball 1 and on 400 + mill when airball to mecha kills me.
I may have been able to recover had Stern been kind enough to provide an interlock switch.

It is pretty common, but I haven't seen a fix yet...

Good question. I have a Prem set to 10 letters and only has LFS

#7077 3 months ago
Quoted from crwjumper:

Nope. Took the time to look through instant info and all the remaining multiballs (GZ, tank, bridge, mecha) weren’t qualified or ready to go.

So if you complete a mode without a single multiball, does it lock you out of changing cities?

Ok thanks Vic
I have played no more than 10 games and it has happened twice.
Im thinking a post may need to be installed on the plastic behind him.
Hate to complain but must say I'm disappointed that this was not corrected earlier.
Did you guys get interlock switches ?

Mine got stuck there, too. I warmed up his arm with a heat gun and repositioned it out of the way. The ball rolls freely past that spot now.

Heat gun? Shoulda used your heat ray

The post below yours with the heat gun idea sounds like a winner. I'd try that to move the arm up just a bit so the ball can roll freely past.

Yes, there was an interlock on my GZ Pro (which has already moved on to make room for Rush Pro, I was sad to see GZ go. But, such is the mentality of a pinball addict with a great game...).

#7082 3 months ago

I don’t want to ruin the update for anyone, but the new guy is hitting that bong pretty hard.

#7083 3 months ago

Started painting my zilla bank. Still have some more to do. Trying my best for that melon look

Experimented with color on the back and found that one of the greens were way too bright!

Recently installed a Godzilla Premium in a winter cold Sweden (using Godzillas Heat Ray to keep me warm). Just wanted to extend a huge thank you to all contributing to this forum. Your comments have helped me avoid a lot of of noob pitfalls (this is my first NIB, and first pinside post ever). And what a incredible game this is! Utterly incredible!

Congrats on your NIB premium. It’s a great game and the code is only getting better. Be careful, NIB is an addiction, expect 2 more before the years over haha

No. Change city will be lit right away if you complete the battle.

To light change city, you just need to do one 4 monster features (battle, tanks, Tesla, bridge)

But if you complete a battle, shoot the scoop, then choose to stay in the current city, you’re locked out of changing until another monster monitor feature has been played.

If I was to get all the metal powder coated, including the ramps, what would be good color to go with?

#7088 3 months ago

Went to my local dive bar last night to put some games on the Pro they have there. Every time I play it makes me more excited for my premium in the next run! Sadly, the Pro I played is still on 0.79 code and neither sling is working

#7089 3 months ago
Quoted from PinMonk:

Manual says 4-40 1/4" PFH MS - BLACK

So I found the manual and found that it’s actually the 4-40 3/16 but can’t seem to find anywhere that sells this. I appreciate your help. Any ideas where to look?

The difference between the two is 1/16” - I don’t think that’s going to matter.

So I saw a post about people having an upper flipper that seems weak at times and they were told to check leaf switch gap. Mine has the issue at times. I checked the gap but not sure how large it should be. I posted a pick if anyone could chime in i would appreciate it.

20220129_092428 (resized).jpg
#7093 3 months ago

Make it as close as possible without it touching.

#7094 3 months ago

Just make sure the first switch registers first and the upper flipper switch registers second.

Thanks. Might need to adjust my maiden too

Is it playing to your liking? If so, then I wouldn’t adjust anything.

#7097 3 months ago

Yesterday I could not make the upper loop shot 1 time. Dead level, I even biased game to the left to drop ball closer to flipper. Finally replaced the balls checked them for magnetism and that solved the problem. They were being held a bit longer by the magnet.

Shout out to Pinball Refinery on a most excellent job done on my newly-arrived Godzilla Premium Refinery#1. My second custom process with the Refinery and it was an absolute blast. He combines true craftmanship with first-rate customer service. If anyone is thinking of giving their Godzilla the Refinery treatment, I think it is 100% worth the investment.

What color is that? Orange or red? Pictures look great.

#7100 3 months ago

Not sure of the name of the powdercoat but it is the color that Steve suggested. It is an mix between orange and red but has interesting flakes throughout (hard to see in photos)
