Quoted from donjagra:

Why have one, when you can have both!?!
I have enjoyed having a jokerz but I would like it even more if it would let me play sof.
Also, thanks to its_me_aj and vectordreams for the play field and parts.

Why don’t you build a new cabinet? Just copy the jokerz cab and slowly gather the parts, it’s doable, I built a ttr from just a ttr playfield.

I am a newbie (I have one EM machine) going to look at a Swords of Fury to buy here locally this weekend. Is there any Achilles heel of the machine I should especially examine?

#1255 83 days ago

they pretty much all have a wear spot where the ball drops down from the upper playfield so look there to see how bad or if its already been repaired & check that all of the drop targets on the upper playfield work correctly , look for cracks in ramps if they are original

I have owned maybe 50 machines in my life, now I own Ripleys and picked up Swords for 350 bucks from a person who knew nothing about fixing. GI sockets were burned to a crisp, replaced sockets and pins. Not a hack job and converted LED's where I like them. I really like this game. My ramps were cracked but I have built kayaks so fiberglass and epoxy I am familiar with repairing stuff to a glass finish. The drop targets yes I have taken out several times to adjust. I have one now that drops almost all the way then goes down slowly. Damn! But, it really is a good game. When I am in a pissy mood and he says "Challenge Me!" then it's game on.
One piece of additional advice. There are always problems with this era machine. Like when I bought DE Jurassic Park, I bought it knowing it didn't work. The major problem tuned out to be fuse holders and a wire broken to the Dino. Anyway, It takes time to fix things sometimes, don't hack, fix it right, learn, and don't get frustrated.

Either way, I still need to know where to drill the hinge. The jokerz hinge is in a different spot than sof.

Hey guys,

Took my CPU off of the game to test another Sys 11 last night and noticed something odd: My SOF has the prototype ROMs installed. Don't know why or what the difference is between them and the "official" ROMs - I'll try to look into that this week, but I took the liberty of uploading the ROMs with a friend's ROM burner. The link below has the bin files if you want to try them out yourself:

Enjoy!

Thinking about getting a repro ramp as i quite like the transparent look.
What is the most prefered one amongst the SoF owners - clear, red or blue?

I put the red in mine & like it , but If I could do it over I would go Clear

Quoted from TecumsehPlissken:

As the maker of these ramps, my first preference is both in clear. There is a plastic to the left of the lower ramp that has 5 or 6 GI bulbs under it. LED's give us so many color options. The light from this GI shines up very nicely through both ramps. I put red LED's under the plastic with game I have here. My second choice for color combinations is a clear upper and a red lower.

Thanks! Do you have pictures of them installed like the two options you mention?

#1267 35 days ago

Thanks a lot, I guess your second choice is my favorite one!
freeplay40 how to order them?

#1268 35 days ago

I went for a red bottom and transparent upper. Looks nice.

#1269 34 days ago

Mine came with a clear lower and red upper that havent been installed.

Nice seeing a Swords right next to a BK2K-- those two are the first two machines I ever bought (and I still have both).

#1274 15 days ago

I also have my SoF next to my BK2K. It just felt 'right'.

After the hard top is on, how do you keep from dulling the top plastic, eventually it’s going to haze from ball trails right?

#1276 15 days ago

You clean and wax it per usual playfields, but from what other owners of HTs have said - they don't see any hazing as of yet. Feel free to check out the Hardtop thread and ask everyone there for a definite answer.

Can someone please measure the location of the hinge bolt for me? Thanks.

Hey, maybe this group can help me. I got a SOF recently, and whenever the orange target pops up, the red target drops without the ball hitting it. I the C-clip was loose, so I tightened it, but that didn't work. Can't see anything obvious that might be causing the orange target to drop like that. Any ideas?
