Quoted from Jj557:

Mine also made a weird screech

Quoted from EaglePin:

Yep, sounded like someone blowing one of those kids party noisemakers.

Alright, "sounds"..."normal" hah

#2952 70 days ago
Quoted from MLarkin78:

Yeah, don't like having items pushed back but I had good/bad news. My Deadpool was pushed back from Dec to July, but my Godzilla premium should arrive Monday.

Same for me, ordered a Deadpool Pro in July 2021, was told September, then November, then December and now July 2022... So I jumped on a GZ Pro, I was told the distributor will have some in stock next week and would ship it then. Fingers crossed here. Kept my name on the DP Pro also.

Quoted from horse_cop:

FedEx called and confirmed a Premium incoming on Monday. Can't wait, this is my first machine.
I've got a dolly and a strap. Still kinda nervous getting the thing inside and set up. Any advice?

A buddy and a 6 pack.

Quoted from frankmac:

Never owned a set of pin stadiums before but done properly it is amazing on this pin..

This game is so incredibly well lit, what do pinstadiums add to it? (I love pinstadiums on B/W machines by the way, I’m a fan of the product, just not sure what they would add to a well lit game).

What is that shooter rod you have? It looks awesome.

#2955 70 days ago
Quoted from Jj557:

Same on mine with the screech. Never heard that one before.

#2956 70 days ago

Anyone know any likely locations to have one of these 3/4 inch to maybe 1 inch long hex posts come loose from?

Was playing a multi-ball and this came rolling down the Playfield, but I can't spot where it's from. Two of these are under the clear plastic near the Mazer canon area, and two more under similar clear plastic just to the right of the right ramp - but those are all in place...

Mine too

#2958 70 days ago
Quoted from medic7000:

Does anyone know how I can end a game in progress?

To add to previous responses, the other thing you can do is open the coin door, go into the utility menu and choose “end game”

Typically they use those for wireform supports or spotlight posts, check all those points.

#2960 70 days ago

Came home and updated. No lights on and the game’s GI is lit against the mirrored back glass and I got this reflection on the ceiling.

There is a menu setting that enables you to restart if you hold start and left flipper.

#2962 70 days ago
Quoted from medic7000:

Does the LE really need a speaker upgrade like pinwoofer? I see the same user promoting it and not sure if he works for pinwoofer

Just get the pinnovators spike II sub adapter and add an external powered subwoofer. Adapter is $35. I have upgraded all my sterns this way and made a huge difference.

I bought some for the game and need to put ‘em on but I’m thinking I agree with you Tiger. Can always take em off for another game. I’ll let you guys know

Premium in the house - Thanks Zach & Nicole at FlipnOut!!! The box looks perfect. My best pinball buddy is coming over tonight with champagne and we're breaking this monster loose!

Oh no, there goes Seattle

#2966 70 days ago

The new code - just wow! It took it to an entirely new level.

#2968 70 days ago

Pinstadiums are reallly overpriced for what you get. Add clear rubbers and that helps brighten things up a lot and add through lighting.

#2969 70 days ago

GOTG banner down. Godzilla Banner up

#2970 70 days ago

You've never used em. How do you know?

#2971 70 days ago

I beg to differ. A HUGE difference. Since I played it before and after, like many of the other games I’ve put them on, I can testify to the improvement.

If you haven’t installed them then you have no clue.

where'd you get it? i've been looking all over

#2973 70 days ago

Played the pro at PHOF and put a deposit on a premium. Looks like May delivery estimate.

#2974 70 days ago
Quoted from Bmanpin:

Same on mine with the screech. Never heard that one before.

I got the screech when it reset after the update. Odd.

That’s cool

#2976 70 days ago
Quoted from Jkush18:

Yeah it happened in the first update from 79 to 80, and now today. If it's common, guess not enough to be concerned about

#2977 70 days ago

My jump ramp sometimes doesn’t reset to the initial position at end of game. I mean sometimes it’ll start a new game with the target bank facing towards the flippers. Is that just my game or is it a code issue?

Quoted from Sleal16:

Most likely it will only happen on the first reboot after updating as it completes the install.

Code, I noticed this too then sometimes while in attract mode after a while it moves back to start position.

Can I wifi update without doing the insider connect crap?

#2981 70 days ago
Quoted from nicoy3k:

i used usb....worked fine

#2982 70 days ago

I don't know why it didn't stick out to me until playing tonight but on the pro backglass on the far left side, that neon vertical sign on the building is a Japanese approximation of the word "Pinball." Of course this is a fantasy because there's only like one place in Tokyo that would be considered a proper pinball arcade to warrant such a sign. You're lucky if you fine one pinball machine on location in Japan. Still, cool detail.

#2983 70 days ago

Someone mentioned a FlipnOut podcast talking about Godzilla production parts delay. Anyone know where to find that?

#2984 70 days ago
Quoted from gmanrulz46:

Yup, I'm sticking with the old way that works fine.

#2985 70 days ago

Hmmm when I go to update is says it’s up to date even tho I’m at .80

#2986 70 days ago
Quoted from nicoy3k:

Same here, insider says I have no machines registered

#2987 70 days ago

Can anyone offer suggestions for a machine that is getting less dialed in over time? This is my first pin so it's probably not Godzilla specific.

Week one, the right ramp is the easiest bail out shot, always hit from trap or coming through left inlane, and often even on a reflex shot instead of a live catch. Now it rattles most of the time and often fails to get up and around.

Week one, I can regularly hit the upper loop six times in a row, sometimes eight, and it travels around pretty smoothly. Now it rattles nearly every shot and I'm fortunate to get three in a row. And often it seems after the third or fourth shot instead of having an upward trajectory the ball weakly heads down to the right

#2988 70 days ago

Same. I’m guessing that in addition to joining you have to register the game on insider connected.

Make sure you’re level. Otherwise it’s probably just in your head and you’re playing worse.

#2990 70 days ago

Joined with a pro tonight while waiting for next premium build after current round.

#2991 70 days ago
Quoted from BallyKISS1978:

and add through lighting.

That is a great idea. Who is the best vendor to buy this from and what color through lighting looks best in this game?

Might need waxing,

#2993 70 days ago
Quoted from Hayfarmer:

I'll give it a shot

Also do need to check level since I've moved it to another place in the room

#2994 70 days ago
Quoted from TigerLaw:

Who is the best gender to buy this from

I'm an equal opportunity customer

#2995 70 days ago
Quoted from blueberryjohnson:

Will speed it up quite a bit, might make those shots easier again.

#2996 70 days ago

After the update my building doesn't go down far enough to release the balls ?

#2997 70 days ago

So does anyone have any idea on the bridge. The call out says "Bridge has been totally destroyed" the coil hits a bunch but the bridge stays in tact?

Also, it seems like sometimes it takes a 2 tries for the ball to get on top of the building

#2998 70 days ago
Quoted from MLarkin78:

Yeah, don't like having items pushed back but I had good/bad news. My Deadpool was pushed back from Dec to July, but my Godzilla premium should arrive Monday.

Can I half upvote you, ha!? Glad your premium is shipping!!!!

#2999 70 days ago
Quoted from TigerLaw:

Not sure trough lights are needed on this game, it has bright lights in the apron, behind each flipper. I think someone makes a filter to slip in there to change colors if desired, cant remember who tho.

Quoted from luckymoey:

Same. I’m guessing that in addition to joining you have to register the game on insider connected.

Go to Service Menu->Net->Insider Connected. Scan your player QR code to register the game to your account. Then you need to complete the registration on the web site. Log into your account there should be a notice regarding completing registration for a game. Select the complete registration, be sure to scroll to the bottom of the screen (if on mobile) to select the complete registration button.
