Quoted from Txcoastal1:

Checking in 'Zilla LE #282 'n da' houz'!![quoted image][quoted image][quoted image][quoted image][quoted image]

okay TXCOASTAL1 I have to ask is your home a David Weekly? reason I ask I just got me LE today as well and I have the same room as you on the side of the front door! I swear it was looking at the game in my house lol!

#1652 6 months ago
Quoted from DoCPooF:

FedEx called today, originally scheduled delivery of my premium for tomorrow, then called back and had to change it to Monday because they told me they didn't have a lift gate. I told them that's fine I have forks, only to be told that they already moved it to Monday....blah....
I guess I can wait a couple more days.

Drive over there and pick it up!

#1653 6 months ago

Same thing, my QR code on my phone is just giving a chime when I tap.

Do you have to enable QR on the game itself?

#1654 6 months ago

Any confirmed premiums arriving on the West Coast yet? Portland Oregon here chomping at the bit!!

Quoted from rai:

I really love the real back glass but did Stern need to adhere the certificate on that way? I needed to get Goo Gone to get the adhesive off.
I forgot to take a picture but my pin was made on 10-28-21 (iirc)

Same here, I really hate having to carefully remove the glue residue off my brand new LE’s……. Quit putting the certificate of authenticity on the damn backglass Stern!

#1657 6 months ago
Quoted from gamera9:

The pro is a great game. I think premium/LE is the biggest difference ever. The game play is still roughly the same, just more cool toys.

The location by me has an LE and Pro side by side. According to Stern Connected I have 8 games on the LE and 10 on the Pro. If I buy a game for home it will be a Pro. The LE is a little better but not $2200+ better for me. I think I actually prefer the MechaGodzilla area on the Pro vs. The LE. The targets on the LE are much easier to hit and I like the quick spinner loop vs. Hitting the magnet and dropping. The building is definitely a lot cooler on the LE. The bridge seems like a non factor in most games. If it was a grail theme I may think differently but the Pro gameplay is just about as fun to me as the LE.

#1658 6 months ago
Quoted from WizardsCastle:

When is mecha-Godzilla supposed to magnet grab the ball?
Haven't seen it once in the couple of hours I've played. I've started the MG multiball numerous times, bit no magnet action.

When you hit the jump ramp to either engage his shields or to start the multiball. But you have to drill it good to make the jump and catch on the magnet.

FedEx delivered, in the garage until tomorrow due to family activities. Was supposed to be delivered in the morning but truck issues delayed, but it is here now.

My post passing doesn't rainbow lob. Instead, it passes over and then accelerates up and over the opposite flipper (if I don't flip it away). Not something I remember seeing on another Stern. Don't think I have the machine particularly steep, and it's definitely the opposite. May play around with the back legs to see how it changes the behavior

#1661 6 months ago
Quoted from rai:

I have not tried the Stern app (connect), what do I nee to do to get started?

Need to register your pin. There should be a QR in your screen to scan.

#1662 6 months ago

I’ll say it again. Elwins best work yet.
It’s gonna be hard for anyone to top this pin.

#1663 6 months ago

Yes, and the incredible theme, sure helps.

#1664 6 months ago
Quoted from Chisox:

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.

Thank you for sharing this wonderful Godzilla happy dance clip. Best pinball them in many years. Good job Stern!

#1665 6 months ago

Number 47 has arrived to my house. Played a few games and love it so far. I dont have the SDTM problem on Godzilla Multiball but right now I am struggling to make a loop shot when it drops from the magnet. I can make it when it loops around to the flipper but not a dead drop.

I also need to figure out the connected feature. I guess I have to register the game but I dont have a code tied to my name yet. I will need to figure that out.

I hope you mean premium.

#1667 6 months ago

Anyone else with a premium/le have a rather loud buzz noise from their building mech?

Mine seems to be doing this intermittently, going to update code as I could see nothing wrong visually with the mech. Thought I had missed a zip tie but I could not see anything holding anything down on the playfield or underneath.

#1668 6 months ago

I was getting only sdtm on gz multiball, this little dot solved the problem. It scatters them quite nicely. I'd like to find someone who could make a baby zilla, about 1/2" to 3/4" tall to put there. Or something similar.

#1669 6 months ago

Can anyone help? She's all setup but my menu button doesn't work on the inside of coin door. I have never experienced this before. The volume buttons work but the black menu button does not any ideas?

#1670 6 months ago

What is building difficulty Karl?

Check all your plugs to make sure something didn't come loose. Start with the board on the left side inside the cabinet.

[quoted image][quoted image]

Could put some 3D printed bushes on the left and right side and then one in the center for continuity with the dot hidden behind it.

This pin is a blast...but flew an airball
next pass on the ramp got me ball caught....hate it when that happens, better than a nut check on a barbed wire fence

That happens quite a bit on this pin - just adds to the drama.

EDIT: the airballs, I meant... not bending the ramp. That hopefully does not happen much!

Tracked it down inside cab you get a bingo! Thanks! Now i can't stop playing it!

#1676 6 months ago

Did Stern change their HD glass? It seems thicker and glows green instead of purple?

This happened to me once wire loose in the connector

Think my building mech is unhappy with life. Makes this sound occasionally.

#1679 6 months ago

Talked to my distributor Zach from Flip N Out today, I only have purchased 3 pins from him and I know he has a lot bigger customers who probably ordered a premium from him, but I did order mine before it was even announced. It was just a rumor. When I hit him up today I was expecting him to tell me I’m on the next round because he probably gave mine to a bigger customer but not Zach. He told me I will get it next week. This guy has been a rockstar with every pin I have ordered and I can’t recommend him enough to buy a pin.

That being said I’m super pumped now!

#1680 6 months ago
Quoted from starbase:

It doesn't know it's at the top and it's trying to turn then timing out and stopping. If that's what it is, it's not good. Will burn out the motor.

Go into diagnostics and make sure that the building diagnostics show that it knows where the building is at every stage. If it gets lost you need to adjust the switch or opto (don't have an LE, not sure how it triggers where it's at doing this blind) so it knows when to stop the motor.

#1681 6 months ago

Anyone know if these wires should be hanging disconnected like this?

Is this what powers the MG magnet?

Thanks!

The one at the coin door is for a dollar bill mech

#1683 6 months ago

I did a quick unboxing video of PinMonk 's Tibetan Breeze special launch edition coolers for Godzilla. I'm super impressed with what I see so far. I can't wait to get them installed.

#1684 6 months ago
Quoted from Txcoastal1:

The smaller one is from the flasher behind MG, and the other one appears to be coming from MG, so assuming the magnetic.

Anyone know if these should be connected?

#1685 6 months ago

Hot take, the best shot in the game is up the mecha ramp, off mecha Z and landing in the 360 wire form

#1686 6 months ago
Quoted from WizardsCastle:

Is this normal?

Post passes on the game are huge lob passes.
Have the game at 6.5 but the bubble (which I know isn't always accurate) is way up to the top.
On all my other games, which are set at 6.5, the bubble is close to the middle.
Thoughts?[quoted image]

Plays much better at 6.9/7. I’d use PinGuy, not the bubble.

#1687 6 months ago

I'm connected to wifi. Can i do code updates now via the internet? Do i need to go through insider connected?

#1688 6 months ago
Quoted from NashtyFunk:

Happens frequently, I think it needs a plastic above the ramp… ball also gets stuck on mecha godzillas right arm sometimes. Hilarious!

#1689 6 months ago
Quoted from Chetrico:

Anyone else using their knee to charge the heat ray? Or their belly? Or what ever else is available?

I’ve used my chin lol

#1690 6 months ago
Quoted from RobbyIRL5:

Agreed! 6.9 has been the sweet spot for me.

For leveling, I am a mega dork and have way more tools than anyone should, but by far my favorite is this one:

Tiny so it fits anywhere on any pin, no matter how cramped, precise and readable. Most useful I've ever had.

Not the best photo in the world but hope this helps? looks like it plugs in further back in the playfield.

I did this too today.

Had balls trapped up on both flippers and held the button down with my chin.

I guess I'm fat. I just use my stomach during the chaos lol

Can you possibly tell me where the flasher behind mechagodzilla should plug into?

If there's any way you could lift the playfield and take a photo of that and the wire harness that goes to the magnet I would really appreciate it!!!

#1695 6 months ago
Quoted from NashtyFunk:

It would be cool if they added a trigger in the code to detect a right spinner then left return lane switch hit during single ball play to trigger special callout or animation.

Any chance sk8ball can give us the unofficial recommendation on pitch like he did on Jurassic Park? I know every game is different but it sure helps to have his opinion as a place to start.

Quoted from Pinball-Obsessed:

Same. I'm sure it looked ridiculous, but there was no one around. On a JJP game it would take your picture and make it your high score photo, so at least I was spared that humiliation...

What are you talking about?. It is a grail theme!!!!
