OK Gotcha

yes they are working correctly

#5102 1 year ago

I went back and forth with stern a ton on this, and they kept telling me over and over to make sure I had dont the adjustments right. Main things being the distance from the backboard and the ramp sitting away from the wall as far as possible. I finally got it after like 10 tries. Haha.

So the instructions just needed to be better.

I think stern is making a better set of them, but I feel like this should work well for everyone.

They have different things in the works to help with flipper fade, but I say just go with virelands fans.

Okay then last thing is the aligator clip to see if that helps. If it doesn’t then I’m officially at a loss. Haha.

#5104 1 year ago
Quoted from Flash71:

Man I gotta say....moving that ramp forward so the arm is centered in the cutout is huge to the TK lock working more consistently.Even with a decent shot now I get a lock. This post is the Bible for the Telekinesis Lock. Follow it to a T and you’ll be locking 99% of the time at a minimum. Well done

So I did the alligator clip test and flipper was still weak
I disassembled the flipper mech and rebuilt it
still weak
My flippers were set at 195 for each and machine has been playing great including making the ramp shot on to the mouth.

I upped the right flipper power to factory setting of 255 and the flipper is playing better.
the left is still at 195
they both seem to be at the same power in terms of force.

Do you think its a weak coil?

Sorry if this is a stupid question, especially after you rebuilt them, but did you leave a little play up-and-down between the flipper and the playfield bushing? I've seen a few flippers too tight to the playfield and binding right out of the box.

#5109 1 year ago

Ill double check
The machine has about 400 plays on it currently

Thanks for the tip

You could swap coils to figure that out.

#5111 1 year ago

195 is crazy low. That is part of the issue. Why do you have them that low?

#5112 1 year ago

I have been getting probably 75-80% on the TK lock since I went through the PDF and make the adjustments. But I was under the hood already this afternoon and decided to go look at what chuckwurt added the other day. The only thing I did this time was took the ramp plate screw out completely and loosened the ramp to move forward a hair more. It was like a tiny fraction of an inch, but now it looks just like his picture does, and after testing it appears it’s working like a total champ now. Did get a single reject off a shot that should be locked.

Follow that guide to a T, but I do think that particular adjustment is really important to getting the timing of the rod catching the ball down.

Quoted from chuckwurt:

I was having trouble with the demo mouth shot, I read that decreasing power made the shot easier. This is what I found to work on both flippers.
I changed it months ago. I was a actually surprised when I logged back into the adjustments as well.
never had an issue until yesterday.

If anyone else has any ideas let me know

thanks

Quoted from Leachdude:

I went ahead ordered some coils since this machine is on location and I should have some backups.

Ill install when they arrive and report back.

#5118 1 year ago

Sooo this is kinda F’d. My left orbit(bicycle) will not advance with shots to that orbit. Did a switch test and it registers as normal. Any ideas ? Just did the new update (.98) so idk if this has anything to do with it. I may try to load it again an see.

#5119 1 year ago

That’s weird. The switch for that shot is at the back right corner of the game on the ramp. So that switch registers in test and does nothing in game? How did you test the switch?

Shoot I thought it was the roll over switch just beyond the left orbit spinner. Let me check the switch you’re referring to. Thanks for the heads up on that.

#5121 1 year ago

Hoppers Blazer wire must have slid down when I was messing around with the TK lock and wasn’t allowing the switch to make. Thanks for the heads up on the proper switch. Furthermore your TK lock fix worked great. So good I had to raise up the magnet strength a bit as the balls were wizzing by now. Lol!! Thanks again for the info.

Any tips on bending the TK arm down. Mine is slightly higher than 2 inches. Just not sure for to bend, I don’t want to cause further damage

#5127 1 year ago

Push it down. Nothing to it. Just go slow.

#5128 1 year ago

Assuming the official topper will be interactive with the .98 code release notes, anyone have any thoughts on what it will be? I just hope it's not a $600 piece of acrylic like JP. Something like BKSOR would be ideal. Maybe the Mind Flayer or something with the final mode? The code updates have been solid and Stern has made this game into an unknown gem now. Great value for a new game, let's hope the topper, tops it off!

All the kids on bikes looking off into the sunset. No mind flayer until you hit the upside down, then the topper gets blast with UV and reveals the mind flayer along with changing all the other artwork.

Also have it integrated with other light shows in the game too.

Alright. I’ve been playing for last 2 hours. I think I’m at 18/24 TK. And 2 of them were rattled up the ramp. The arm less than 2 inches is PARAMOUNT. Anywho. Now I have thread stuck up there that haven’t come down. Which switch is the magnet lock release?

I rebooted and can hear it trying to release. Make soft thump sound

The switches for the magnet are to the right of it on the backboard. They are two optos. Play around with them in switch test.

The latest on my weak right flipper issue.
The right flipper is getting stuck in the up position and stays that way unless the left flipper button is pressed.
Im assuming these 2 symptoms are connected?

And you have vertical play in the right flipper if you pull up on it?

Sounds like the flipper is too tight to the bushing or the coil stop is broken.

#5140 1 year ago

Have you taken the flipper assembly apart yet? What did you find?

I say replace the coil stops, then start flippin

It's 2 screws to take off the coil stop, inspect it, and diagnose the problem. Let's grab that screwdriver!

#5143 1 year ago

replaced the coil stop and sleeve.
both flippers are on factory stock 255
I took flipper assembly apart and rebuilt.

Right flipper is weaker and has a hard time getting up the left ramps.

Today the right flipper started sticking in the up position.
Not all the time but when the flipper is being flipped alot.

#5144 1 year ago

That has to be mechanical. So your new coil stops are busted already, or your flipper plunger is mushroomed or the flipper isn’t properly gapped away from the bushing.

Get a rebuild kit and rule out the issue being mechanical.

#5145 1 year ago

Gotcha
one is on the way.

Thanks

Just to rule out binding to the bushing - pull up on the right flipper bat and make sure there's a tiny bit of play - it should be able to lift very slightly (about a credit card thickness gap) and fall back down. I've seen very poor flipper performance when the bats were not gapped properly with the bushings.

Star Court Mall with the mind flayer and Some Surprise season 3 content with the topper would be cool.

Agreed! Worth the money IMO. I mean season 3 came after all the main plans. DLC that makes sense cause development
hours would be on top Of what’s already planned.

Well, Stranger Things will have a 5th season after all.

"Stranger Things is not going anywhere anytime soon—other than Russia, of course.

While Matt and Ross Duffer, the creators of the Netflix drama, have previously guessed that they might say goodbye to the hit show after four seasons, they confirmed in a new interview that season four will not be the end for the kids of Hawkins, Indiana.

"Season four won't be the end," Ross Duffer told The Hollywood Reporter. "We know what the end is, and we know when it is. [The pandemic] has given us time to look ahead, figure out what is best for the show. Starting to fill that out gave us a better idea of how long we need to tell that story."

In even more good news, Matt confirmed that all of the season four scripts are ready to go.

"For the first time, we have all the scripts written and we're able to look at it as a whole piece and make adjustments," he said. "
