Quoted from CashMoney:

Mando I went ahead and created a rubber kit for the Premium/LE model:

Did you upload any pics or just create the kit? Need pics, help the player out.

Just got LE #852 from Orange County Pinballs, they set it all up and tested it, looking good!

Sweet! I have both of those coming. How you liking them so far?

#1454 6 months ago

Stayed home all day to receive my LE. Fedex still says it's gonna be delivered today but it's not. It's been in my general area since Friday. Talk about first world problems. Hopefully it gets in tomorrow.

Exact same for me-now FedEx says tomorrow instead of today.

I love Halloween, haven't played Godzilla yet because I had to leave right after they finished setting it all up

#1458 6 months ago
Quoted from mahony:

Sorry for not being clear, I'm referring to the ball lock on top of the building. I've seen it on video a few times where it will drain SDTM at the start of multiball. I have only played the pro version which doesn't have the collapsing building, so I haven't experienced it yet.
Check out this video at 2:55, it shows what I've seen.

Quoted from NightTrain:

Can you loosen the screws for the mech and shift it a bit to the left flipper?

I took a quick look and if there is a way to adjust the building I could not see it - no play at all around it. It seems to me that the most likely issue is just leveling - sometimes it takes a while for the game to settle even after being adjusted. Played a couple of games again and the drop from the building is super reliable for me - like I said the fall neatly onto the left flipper.

Make sure the game is level across the *whole* playfield using a reliable tool - even if it reads level at one end, there might still be some twisting that can cause issues. Finally, I would check that the balls rest against the left edge of the building when locked - on mine they look like this:

Pictures of what? Just replace the black standard rubber with a Titan rubber. Use the manual for reference if needed. All Titan orders come with the reference card for additional assistance.

And I waived at your machine as they dropped off mine (and very nice guys for sure)! It was like Santa showing up a few months early - a truck full of pinball machines. What a lovely sight.

Now waiting to get the movers to lug it up a few flights of stairs later in the week, but I did open the box and peek - because I couldn't resist. Everyone is right about the powder coat. The photos do not do it justice. Absolutely stunning.

If you create a kit, you have the ability to upload pictures of your game with the ACTUAL rings installed.

Not worried about a reference card or a manual. Many want to see what others are doing with their games with these custom ring kits. Visuals, all about the Visuals.

Quoted from Hayfarmer:

Nice guys, I've talked to em but never bought. I ordered from nx level so should be on same train comin out

I bought my TMNT from Korner Pocket. It was a bit of a strange experience buying from someone who didn't seem to really know what they were selling. I expressed interest in a Mando LE and they called me with a slot but wanted $2k over list. I explained that it was for my own use and not to flip but that of course made no difference so I passed. I went to Zach at FlipnOut for this one and just paid my invoice, so it should be here soon!

#1466 6 months ago

Just got my pro and set it up. Everything seems good except tail whips don't register (regular or 2x). Did switch test and both switches for the whip (top and bottom) register, but in gameplay rolling through the shot doesn't score a tail whip or skill shot (have played a half dozen games and bonus always shows 0 tail whips). Updated to version .80 code before playing first game. Anyone else experience this or have ideas of what might be going on?

I just finished bringing my Premium Godzilla into the basement and setting it up in the pinball room.

Home from work and Powered Godzilla up immediately. 3 new high scores in a row(nothing to brag about) and this game keeps showing me more and more how incredible it is.

9 hour round trip tmrw to Hillsboro, Or, to pick up our le from Next Level. Not much sleep tonight !!!

Looks like someone was in a hurry when they packed up the Expo show specials.

Updated to version .80 code before playing first game. Anyone else experience this or have ideas of what might be going on?

I don’t have mine yet so just brainstorming, but is it the 2 rollover switches (one in the lane and one near the pop)? When you say they’re registering in switch test, did you push on them with your hand to test them or did you roll a ball through the lane to test them?

I’d start by going into switch test and using my hand to roll a ball through the lane and see if they both register as the ball goes over them. If one or both don’t register, you might need to slightly bend the switch arm so a ball rolling over it will register. Just a guess though.

Did both in switch test (hand and ball) and always registered. Wild thing is in first game after that, first ball, registered the skill shot and a trail whip. Then never again in subsequent balls.

Going to return to it now. If no change, will see if I can revert code to test if problem existed on factory too. Then try reinstalling

#1476 6 months ago
Quoted from mahony:

When the balls drop out of the lock, they hit that piece of plastic before dropping onto the playfield. It seems you could just put a small dimple or tiny post on that plastic shield, then the balls would be diverted around the dimple/post and would no longer go SDTM.[quoted image]

The manual has instructions on adjusting the building, maybe that would help?

#1477 6 months ago

Maybe I’m just patient, but I’m just stoked to know I have a premium on order, and this masterpiece of a machine will be part of my collection. I was told by my distributor that I’m second run, and will get it around February.

I can’t understand if this is such a awesome game the LE’s are still so cheap.

Picked up LE #761 from Automated yesterday. Was there when the UPS semi got there. 40 plays on it and just thoroughly enjoying exploring it all. It’s fast, smooth, deep, beautiful and rewarding without being easy. I’ve been most pleasantly surprised by the unbelievably hysterical, campy, cheesy, purely awesome video and call out integration of these old movies that I barely remember but am now enjoying so very much. Can’t get enough. Best ever at the honeymoon stage. Let’s see if that holds. BTW - the Prem/LE features like building/mecha/bridge are game changers. Got in 20ish games on a pro the week before my LE arrived. Loved it too but the upgrade is next level IMO.

….also, I must be an idiot cause I connected it to wifi successfully and can get insider connected working. I sifted through posts and think I registered the game with SN number but who knows. I’ll go back and read more but if anyone is kind and wants to repost what I missed…..I am all ears.

Tomorrow is Godzilla day with a new short film being released

#1484 6 months ago

QC when this machine arrived was pretty intense. The little one is waiting for multi-ball - her favorite place is laying on a leg for the vibration.

Whatever smells were on the box, they approved!

I ordered my premium 3 mins after the Stern reveal and have been totally avoiding gameplay videos and reviews (been checking out reviews the last 10 days or so). Stoked after the reviews but I’m ecstatic you mentioned that the game has a sense of humor, as it should. Just paid for mine today and can’t wait to do the Godzilla victory dance when it arrives.

Quoted from Reality_Studio:

I love Halloween, haven't played Godzilla yet because I had to leave right after they finished setting it all up

Ok...finally played it. I avoided videos of the game and ignored it at the recent California Extreme because I wanted to play it first at home, and oh my it's badass. I'm not big Godzilla fan but the pin is just plain fun to shoot and so cheesy that I love it. Stern's Insider Connected is such a pleasant surprise as well, getting achievements on a pin reminds me of those first achievements I got way back on the Xbox 360 when they launched Xbox Live. I love it and I'm really glad that Stern is starting to look at things that specifically benefit the home buyer. I do need to brush up on my Godzilla lore because I always thought he was bad, but then he's saving us from the other crazy monsters so he's good...but then he goes back to smashing stuff so he's bad...I dunno, I need to read up on all that to figure out who's side the green dude is on. Good job Stern, even with early code this one is a home run!

#1487 6 months ago
Quoted from Flipstream:

All of the Tier I battles have a set order or shot location except for Megalon. Ebirah is all three spinners finishing with the pop bumper, Titanosaurus is the powerline targets left to right, then maser cannon, then magna-grab, and Gigan is the left and right ramp shots. Megalon is a PITA because shots only stay lit for about 10 seconds, they jump to random new locations, and there are sometimes delays before a shot is lit. So you might not be crazy, there may not have been a shot available.

I think it was titanosourus, maybe didn’t see the powerline targets lit up.

#1488 6 months ago
Quoted from RobbyIRL5:

I think it was titanosourus, maybe didn’t see the powerline targets lit up.

Maybe good feedback for sk8ball to have some callouts added for what shot to hit in unclear progressions.

And personal request - more time before hitting a flipper button generates a callout, and more than one callout available. Right now the reset time is way too short, and it says the same thing over and over.

#1489 6 months ago

Two reviews in a row with the word cheesy. So excited. Games that take themselves too seriously get old quickly over here.

I second this comment. Jordan and the team at Next Level Pinball in Hillsboro are amazing. I’ve bought and serviced a fair amount of machines through them and have always been impressed with them.

Had an operator friend over to look it over and he doesn't understand what's going on. Sometimes the short plunge skill shot registers, but more often than not it doesn't. Most games no tail whips will register, but then occasionally a couple will (and then go back to not registering).

I wanted to factory reset the machine, including the code, but I don't see how to do that. There's no option I can see in the insider connected section for reinstalling the factory code or uninstalling the update. Anyone know how to do this? My goal is to test whether the skill shot / tail whip problems are the same on the original code version or only crop up with .80.

Are the switches intermittent in switch test mode (testing them by rolling a ball, not with your fingers), or only in the game? If they're intermittent both places, you need to adjust the switch arms to get a better press on the switch button.

Check your email. After registering mine I gave up and went to bed. The next morning I had an email that I used to finish the registration process and then Insider Connect started working. Then it was able to update and Bada-bing, Bada-boom it’s all set!

Lots of call outs will be added. Very early code. Lots of skill shots. New type of challenge mode, etc.
