Quoted from Jakusu:

This is a rough mock up of the custom decals I'm working on.[quoted image]

While I like you’re enthusiasm, and lord knows the work put in is long, I think you’re losing the spirit of the game with the red and blue. Sof is a dungeon crawling game, it’s meant to hold the essence of Vikings taking on a balrog and it’s minions in a dark cave or dungeon lit by fire and torches.

I kinda also feel like adding a bunch of bright white and colorful leds takes away from the theme as well, alas everyone is entitled to do whatever to their machines. I plan to stay in the dungeon crawling realm

I posted this NOS playfield in the marketplace.
Figured this would be a good place to mention it as well.

For those with less than average PFs. Hardtop owner posted this a couple days ago...

"Alright folks.... I will start a new round thread as well, but as a result of these polls coupled with emailed requests and comments at shows ... Here is the next round. The only wild card is Eight ball Deluxe. I need to confirm rights/permission first.

NEXT UP:
Eight ball Deluxe (pending)
Pinbot
Swords of Fury
Grand Lizard
Blackout

As we grow with titles we will try to do a better job on social media also. We are guilty of being consumed with commercial print work most of the time, and these marketing/communication steps sometimes fall by the wayside when it comes to our beloved pinball efforts."

On a side note - do not think this is 'coming soon'. They ESTIMATE it to be a year out, but at least you know that in the future there will be another option for a great looking SOF in your futures.

If anyone is looking to buy Swords of Fury, mine is going on the block soon. Someone reached out looking for one, but they apparently do not want one this nice. Mine was previously owned by Nerdygrrl at some point. She did a very nice playfield restoration on the game, after Neo restored the playfield and cleared it. Send me a PM if you are interested.

Here is a link to Nerdygrrl's Pinside ad when she was selling it. Nothing has changed on the game.

Joined the club last night officially after a long road trip to do the pick up. 6hr drive but picking up three made it all worth it!
Nice cabinet but the back box looks like it came from another machine. Pretty hammered. Condition between the two doesn’t match up.
Just unloaded them in the living room at midnight. I’ll set it up in the games room tomorrow and play.

I recently switch my ramps with those great freeplay 40 ones. Clear on top and red on the bottom. I wanted to share the vinyl work that I put on them as well as on top of my glare glass amongst other various spotty places. The cool thing about the vinyl is that I used fluorescent colors with UV properties and then mounted an LED black light on top of the head. Man does it pop when lit up but unfortunately the camera wont capture all of that. I also overlaid the magic strips and target and cut a fluorescent green acrylic flipper topper for the mini flipper. The upper pf is so bright now with all that blacklight effect that I took the blubs out of the upper pf because it looks way cooler with just the fluorescents. I also switched all of the GI to comets ice blue and it looks really great. It doesn't wash out the art like a bright primary color would but really compliments everything and adds a cool ambience.

Cab finished. Back together soon.
Sound upgrades to enhance the awesome soundtrack. Custom speaker panel done as well. Couple of tweaks still to do on it.

jakusu that speaker panel is AWESOME!

#1060 68 days ago

You've gotta sell that speaker panel jakusu. Looks amazing! I'd love to have one in my machine.

#1061 68 days ago

No problem. If I get 5 people they about 95 posted to USA.
This one is still getting a couple of slight changes. 10mm less diameter speakers to hide led strips and slight windows changes on displays to even up.

Have you thought about maybe installing a light diffuser over the LED strips instead? herg makes a great set for TNA that make a big difference from the photos I've seen: https://pinside.com/pinball/forum/topic/total-nuclear-annihilation-cluball-welcome/page/52#post-4397279

#1063 67 days ago

Thanks for the link. They look good on tna.
The new version will hide the LEDs for me.
Also it's on a 44remote so can dim, change etc. But will keep it mind if it doesnt work out.
Here's one I did for T2.

Hi everyone,
My SOF seems to be missing a part: A11950 Ramp Gate Assembly (I’ve circled the part on a photo from ipdb; missing the gate and the wire). Looked at various vendors (Marcos, pblife, pbrepair) and couldn’t find this part; would anyone be able to point me to any other sources for parts like this, or would anyone possibly have an extra they’d be willing to sell?

hey guys - I read back over the 5 bank target troubleshooting (even my own newb question for a few years back) in this thread and had a quick question - Anyone know off hand which connector(s) on the power board to check for cold solder when troubleshooting this stupid bank? I had pulled the mech out, cleaned, and repined the whole board, and things worked great for a few months... but I just went to play today and it's starting to get flakey again. I'm guessing it had to be the opto board - so I want to tackle both the board itself and the power connector.

if not - I can check the schematics - I was just being a bit lazy here at work in a pre-turkey day lull.

I don’t remember exactly which pin on the Power board, but it’s obvious when you pull the board out... as good practice; reflow all of the pins on the back of the power board to ensure you cover everything

Pulled the power board - reflowed the entire top row and added some additional solder... Played without a single blip for 20 minutes and I focused on just the top PF. Thanks for the tip - I could definitely see a few cracked solder joints when I flipped it over and even though I was testing a pretty solid 11.2V at the opto connector, this seems to have done the trick. Thanks Chosen_s and everyone else in the thread.

Now back to some hardcore Lionman-ing.

Just got my SoF Pinball

#1074 22 days ago

In process of shopping out my SoF and the rubber kit I purchased does not have a proper map for rubber location, nor does the manual. Can someone please send me a link or picture where I can find the rubber locations. Thank you

When you take the originals off - match them up or look for the size imprinted on it. Even dirty and dry rotted, the overall size will be decernable. There is a rubber list in the manual, but oddly no letter on any of the diagrams to match it up.

Thanks for the reply, I had thrown all the old out expecting the kit would have a map as they usually do but it was pretty easy to figure out there were a few I was questioning, and the kit came with extras.

If you have any specific questions - I can pop the glass off mine and take a peek. I replaced mine when I got it, but did the trick I mentioned above.
