They just picked up filming again last week after the delay of COVID, so they’re way behind. I don’t think they’re committing to a release date beyond 2021 yet, and even that is a stretch. Man, these kids are going to look even older than they should be (once again). That’s the problem when the seasons don’t skip years. How old were they supposed to be again in S3, 14?

#5702 1 year ago

At this point they are going to have to revisit the kids in College a few years later lol. None of them look like kids anymore.

Haha exactly!

Quoted from Powerhouse47:

Just got a great game in. Once everything is dialed in, it sings when played. I hit burn it back 5 times in a row for my 5-way combo. That ranks like #3 best moments. Child #1 and #2 just edge burn it back combo for best life moments.

as a pin owner with 3 kids, i can tell you, the 5-way-combo edges out the last kid. been there, done that.

#5705 1 year ago

sooooo....what makes "where's barb" give 40mil right off the bat? just had it happen to me for the second time.

started it, ball was wild and randomly hit some shot on the left (mystery loop maybe?) and it awarded 40mil.

even when i've found her before, it's way less than that...

#5706 1 year ago

Have to find her on the first shot.

#5707 1 year ago
Quoted from chuckwurt:

that's it?

i swear i thought i'd found her on the first shot before and it had been way less.

good to know though...that's a really quick way to add some decent points.

There is a shot that tells you where she is, correct?

Saucer. If you take that route, finding her is worth a lot less. Like 5 million maybe.

#5713 1 year ago
Quoted from chuckwurt:

Ok... so getting the 40mil for finding her on the first shot is pure luck then by the sound of it... unless there's a 'secret pattern'

#5715 1 year ago

Just had a cool moment. I was playing upside down 2 with ramps and orbits, hit the mystery and got upside down.

It started upside down 1 and they ran together. Was almost perfect on both and got around 110 million combined. That was sweet!

#5716 1 year ago

Also stern of the union address says new code update soon!

Having trouble dialing in the diverter mech on the TK lock on my LE. When the coil is engaged, does your diverter have back and forth play in it? In other words, if I reach behind the back panel and engage the plunger mech for the lock diverter, I can move the diverter arm back and forth 1/4" or so (with the coil plunger pushed in). I'm trying to determine if this is by design or not. My shots stick about 1/3 to 1/4 of the time, and the other times they scream back down the ramp SDTM. I did all of the adjustments per the Stern PDF on chuckwert's post.

#5720 1 year ago

I did some recording to help someone debug but did it in 120fps and its a great slomo!

Cool... that's quite an air-ball at 4:36!! Does the game often cause air-balls off the slings?

Seems like you need to lower the Domogorgan a bit...

I have the same issue. My probably works a little more often than you're reporting, but not nearly enough. In continuing to tinker with it, I noticed what you did, there's still play with the plunger. It *seems* like the extra movement absorbs the momentum of the ball, which leads to rejects. I followed the guide as well, and the coil is properly secured, but there is still lateral slack in the diverter pin, at least on my game.

A little play is fine. I would make sure that nut on the back of the diverter arm is nice and tight, but there will be a little play in the diverter arm when engaged.

Did you review that post recently? In the past month or so I added a ton more information with pictures to help dial the diverter in.

In your case I would concentrate on adjusting the diverters distance from the back wall when engaged. It sounds like the arm is too close to the back wall, pinching the ball, and causing rejects.

Also, be sure that the ramp is as far away from the back wall as possible. Should be able to feel the hump in the ramp as you run your fingers from the ramp to the back wall to confirm the ramp is sitting out from the back wall and not flush with it.

Make sure you have the flipper fans and the flipper strength set to default too (255)

I hope that helps.

Sweet slo mo! Noticed a couple things:

Right ramp is missing a projector decal on the right lock standup.

Your projector images need to be moved up a bit. They are sitting too low causing a black line across all the targets. Should be an easy fix in the settings.

The ramp to the Demogorgan coming down at the speed in the video looks cool... any way to slow the ramp down in reality so it lowers slower? The slower ramp kind of ties in with the scale of things... I can imagine if that were to scale with the Demogorgan it would come down at about the speed in the video, if anyone knows what I mean...

Hadn't thought of slowing the ramp, but a resistor on the motor lead would slow the motor RPMs if you want to slow the ramp reveal.

#5728 1 year ago

You don't want to slow the ramp. If you did, you'd want to kill yourself during the 4th and 5th demogorgon modes when the ramp keeps moving up and down.

Just the fourth one. I actually did adjust that mode. Made it so it raises and lowers every 2 seconds instead of 1 second.

Well, I guess it depends a bit on what makes the ramp decide to move... if it's based on time, and someone slows the opening down, it could never actually get down! But if it's based on it hitting a closed limit switch, it could work... that and playing with the open/close rate... it would make it more like the drawbridge on MM, or the dropping target bank on AFM... now if the designer of those games had anything to do with this game I bet he'd have wanted it slow!

I might play with that a bit... my electronic skills can just about stretch to soldering a resistor in place... might make it a pot. so I can adjust it... thanks for the tip!!

It would be nice if Brian would just save everyone the trouble and add a ramp speed option to the settings. It could even have sub-settings for successive demogorgons, so the first one is very slow and cinematic, but the ones after are more like it is now.

He's a nice guy who cares about your pinball experience, so maybe he'll acquiesce if you ask real nice and save you potentially disasterous soldering accidents.

I'll mention it to him...

Talked to Brian about it quickly and the limiting factor may be the torque needed to get the motor to start, so there is a lower limit to how low the power can be before the motor just won't start, so your idea of a pot might be the best idea since you can adjust easily. He also said they'd look into putting some settings after 1.0 is out if it's feasable.

Ah...I only made it to the fifth mode once, so I misremembered it moving. But that fourth mode is a bitch...

Yeah and the demo supers are worth nearly enough for how difficult it is to make it in the mouth with it moving up and down every second. 2 seconds is doable though.

#5735 1 year ago

Well I dialed the TK lock in somewhat. Actually stuck 3 in a row before it went to 1 out of 3 or so for the rest of the session. I made several minor adjustments but can't seem to get it perfect. It seems pretty fickle, so not a great design on this mech imo.

Anyway, super fun game. The rules seem 90's throwback basically with some added depth. What kind of scores are you guys putting up?

Do you have the flipper fans? That might get you completely fixed. When I dialed mine, it was perfect until about 10 mins in, then it was like 20% at best.

Flipper fans fix the power fade of the flippers and keeps that TK lock buttery smooth.

Thanks chuckwurt, I do not have them. I just picked the game up recently (NIB LE). Just installed the UV kit which is awesome. Who sells the fans?

installed these yesterday, wow what a difference.
game is so much better, have not had one reject from tk lock when nailing the shot.

highly recommend these.

The different speed settings would be awesome... You could do it manually by soldering a pot. to the motor lead and running it to the coin door and then adjust the speed yourself according to which demo mode you're in

#5742 1 year ago

Quick question. I add the cooling fans (awesome btw) and moved my britebuttons mod to the CN2 space because the fans use CN11. But I don’t get any power to the buttons. When I switch back, they light up. So it seems I need to turn the CN2 power on in settings?

CN2 is 5V, CN11 is 12V. Also, the pinouts are not the same. So CN2 is a dead-end if you need 12V.

CN3 and CN4 are 12V (different pin arrangement).

CN9 is for the dollar bill acceptor and is also 12V.

I’m incredibly close to pulling the trigger on a Premium - in large part thanks to the great stream chuckwurt uploaded to YT with the camera in the players position - but I’m hesitating because I 100% need the UV kit and can’t find it in stock anywhere, and I’ve also heard they’ve been on back order for a while now.

I’m in London but would pay to ship from Europe or the States if I could find one - does anyone know of anywhere with stock?
