Quoted from TheOriginalWiz:

Yes I do - I found my shooter problems were from a shooter rod was not hitting the ball squarly. I had to move a washer to the outside of the left screw to shift the shooter rod over so it would not hit the right side of the ball all the time. I also cleaned all the factory gunk off the rod so it wasn't so crunchy.

My shooter tip was actually hitting the right prong of the auto-shooter. Not wonder there wasn't any finesse or control over my plunges! Removing the two red lowest lock screws and loosening the others I was able to slide the whole assembly to the left and get it right in the middle of the ball. The I tightened the main screws and reinstalled the red lock ones, which went in at an angle but appear to be doing their job.

Quoted from bigd1979:

Ok my premium came with .80 code and apparently .81 is the newest??....so I hooked it up to my wifi but it says no new code available and it's up to date? So then I tried to do it the old way and it won't find it on the drive? It been long time since I've updated a stern ...how do I put it on the drive ? Thanks in advance

Register your game to your Stern insider account using the QR code on the bottom left of the screen when in the wifi settings screen. Once registered, it will allow you to update to .81

Online updates dont work if the game isn’t fully IC registered. Make sure you complete your game’s registration on the web after scanning you qr code.

Old updates work just as before. Make sure you unzipped the files and are using a properly formatted drive

Fat32 8 or 16gig mbr partitioned flash drive

Unzip download files and copy the spk files to the drive.

Put in usb port on cpu and power cycle game

Quoted from Obed_Marsh:

Ya, I figured as much after I didn't get it in late October early November as originally expected.

Got my premium last week on Thursday. So I'm guessing as of last week they were still building them.

#4708 5 months ago

Anyone put mirror blades in their game? Curious how it looks. Not a fan of the current art blades out there.

#4709 5 months ago

Any updates on the shooter lane protector? My pro will be here in the next week or two.

Lermods put mirror blades in their game and it looks amazing. I have mirror blades in my AIQ and it really opens up the Playfield and enhances the light show! I think I’ll be getting some for my GZ Prem.

#4712 5 months ago

Are official Stern art blades coming?

#4713 5 months ago
Quoted from Allibaster:

I’m sure they won’t be far behind here. But I have no idea how they don’t have their shit like this ready when the pin comes out??
It’s like they hand their sales over to third parties right off the bat.

Good News for those suffering from the broken plastic at the Magna Grab from the Bridge. Spoke with Eddie stern today, they have a kit that will help with the issue. Not sure when Distributors will be told about the kit, as my distro has not heard yet.

Used my 100% off coupon to get my Godzilla themed dust cover. Just had to pay for shipping.

Your game needs to be registered with IC and complete - not just on network.

collage.com, they have a blanket that's free (plus shipping)

Thank you. I forgot my buddy accidentally registered the game to his account and we removed it recently.

This mech is so impressive to me. Just massively cool. The ball release is so simple too. Very cool design. Elwin is the man.

#4738 5 months ago

I placed an order with Cointaker immediately following the initial release of GZ. I wanted an LE but of course those were all spoken for. I was happy to be 3rd on the list (1st run) for a premium. Today I learned I won't see my game until March? This is straight from the distro. I understand there are parts shortages everywhere but being 3rd on the 1st run its hard to believe a large distro like cointaker only received 3 premiums.... anyways I love this hobby but dang!

#4740 5 months ago

New GC for me: 1.172B. Crazy game - I scored 890M on ball 1. Had an EB and 2 more balls… and totally screwed the pooch.

I installed Tom’s tower mod today. They look great. It’s a bit of work to get them in there .. and I accidentally broke one of the arms off (they’re fragile - beware). I also have a small washer left over. Don’t you just hate that?!

2AF52EB2-67DB-4AFA-B17E-1CBCAE458B82 (resized).jpeg

Oh, also installed titans and added a pinsub connection.

Godzilla is an amazing pin. I can’t wait see what the future holds with code.

Ordered this blanket for a dust cover. Will go well with the Godzilla I have to go in the game

Quoted from Pinballmonkey:

Hey Deathhimself, which tape did you use?

For anyone looking to do the End of the World Roof Party, here is how I did it for suggestion but do what works for you.

Before placing figures down I put down clear Mylar on the roof plastics.
Then I used a dab of CA or Crazy Glue on the feet or chair supports and carefully place them on top of the Mylar making sure it’s completely on the Mylar and not the plastics.

Hope that helps you.. cheers!

Anyone have any luck adjusting their magna-grab? I tried adjusting the position of the magnet under the playfield and also via the software menu and my magnet always drops from this position onto the top of the upper flipper. I assume you’re supposed to be able to drill the loops directly from a drop?

[quoted image]

How are you leveling left to right? Very small adjustments can affect this. Try turning your left leg leveler (raising it) a quarter turn, test, repeat until the drop works as expected.

Also, a secondary consideration is what's your pitch and how are you measuring it?

Mine drops from there and it’s easy to hit the loops. Like Vic said, mess with your side to side level some.

Wanted to share a mod I designed with the help of toyotaboy and callmesteam

I added a link at the bottom of this post to my IG account showing the flame effect in a video clip
-
Train car mod.
871C9B2B-C295-4DC3-A9EE-187D189B3E6A (resized).jpeg
-
Each car uses 3 LEDs to create a fire effect. Train cars are 3D printed and sets of 4 are available for $20 shipped from toyotaboy Reach out to him instersted. (Just for the 3D printed parts, lighting and other parts are not included, JUST THE TRAIN CARS)

LEDs are from
https://evandesigns.com/products/fire-led-kit

I used the 3MM ones. 7E21D7DD-DCB3-4DEF-9C3E-F4A620D97D22 (resized).jpeg

You want to drill holes in the bottom of the cars and insert the LEDs. 72CD5467-B3AA-41BE-A4CE-EFB2CF7537BA (resized).jpeg

Using some cotton in the top of rhe cars will
Diffuse the lights and can give it a smoke effect if you pull some out of the windows.

Made this custom mounting plastic. I extended the original one to utilize the post by the building. F1A27B52-CAF9-4A3E-BD7C-DCA501BBE9EE (resized).jpeg

I’m going to paint the bust this weekend and will be using the Train insert to trigger the lighting.

I have zero interest in selling this mod. It’s an easy DIY if you have one of the banks.

To clarify the above post, the $20 for the trains is just the 3D printed trains, all other parts are seperate.
