Anyone else have a harder time hitting the right ramp then they should? Mine feels very late. Left I have down and center is even getting better but right is tough for me for some reason.

Happens with pretty much every new release. Check back in 6 months to get a more accurate picture once the thrill of opening a NIB game wears off.

Cowabunga pooling is back. Now it’s at ball guide connections. My JP premium from June looks the same.

I hope nobody is looking at this and gasping? This is what we have come to expect from Stern.

I think the solution is to have washers on the machined pegs so the sharp edges of ball guides and aprons cannot dig into the finish. WMS did this on their games.

Agree. Bit of a pest but maybe we need to do this before playing.

Actually, maybe Stern should do this before shipping...way easy during assembly.

The real solution has to be giving the clear time to fully dry?

Always looks like the clear was soft when the populating of the top side began and everything’s just getting pulled into soft clear.

Anyone have the link to the deep green flipper bands? I'm seeing the translucent super bands but I saw a machine in a YT video that had a nice TMNT turtle green. Let me know!

Also, very awesome fun machine and Jack D. is right, it's a flow monster!!!

Sucky; but so strange they keep doing the same thing over and over again when people keep lining up to buy their games. So very strange.

Try Titan bands. https://www.titanpinball.com/index.php?route=product/product&product_id=52

I got the low bounce ones and they're great.

Too late,
The clear is already compromised when crushed like that.

J85m is right about stern. Stern needs to take more time for the clear coats to cure. You can tell by the indenting of the clear coat that it's too soft.

More Hardner! Lol
Problem if they add more hardner they risk dry spray and less shiny finish.
This results to sand and buff Or sand and add more clear. Things they are trying to avoid. So I guess they are just rolling the dice !

I'm rounding the corner on being able to purchase this game.

Wife said we need a backyard fence before I can purchase the game. Getting quotes on that and then I'll know what I've got to work with.

I hear ya. I had to do a dog fence & dog house before I considered TMNT. Pinball is great, but not always priority. But while the fence is getting installed, of course send out payment for TMNT.

Just unboxed my Pro. So far it looks good. I don't see any clearcoat issues. This is after dealing with an awful playfield in my JP LE (that my Distro stepped in and swapped the PF for a good one). Hopefully it will hold up under closer scrutiny. Can't wait to fire it up!

Nice. How heavy and awkward is it to move that box around? Or did they just wheel it in with a dolly?

Wheeled in with a dolly, but it's not hard to move around after that.

Forget about the fence. Buy that TMNT Pro. No fence needed to keep the wife at home, she 'll only want to play the TMNT.

my pro should be here today or tomorrow!

Haha. It's been something she's wanted for years. And the thought process is, if we're going to drop thousands on a game, then she's getting that damn fence first. Or we'll never get one.

Of course she wants a really nice one with a cement base.

messages

- Ninja Pizza Multiball Ball Save timer was not being set correctly for
install HARD and EXTRA-HARD.
- Final Battle Ready had all turtle shots flashing instead of the left ramp.
This has been corrected.

Final Battle Ready is displayed, the ball will not eject if the Pizza
Parlor or Lair is the final shot.
- Fixed an issue where the pizza toppings would not get reset correctly in the
2nd plus games.

New:

different perk for the challenge mode:
- LEONARDO - 2X BEBOP AND ROCKSTEADY AWARDS
- DONATELLO - 3X FOOT AWARDS
- RAPHAEL - EXTRA DAMAGE TO BOSSES
- MICHELAGELO - LIGHT BATTLE AGAIN
- Added rotating flasher background lamp effect while you have 2X or higher
playfield multiplier running.

- Its a YES NO type adjustment
- It defaults to YES.
- This is added to DIRECTOR INSTALL and then defaults to NO.

It features different ball save durations based on "Final Battle
Difficulty" setting,

Tweaked:
- Increased the scores for spelling APRIL and LAIR.
- Fixed the monospacing of some score fonts.
- Removed pizza toppings from display when playing Final Battle Challenge
- Removed skill shot reminder speech during Final Battle Challenge
- Increased the max points for the Glider feature
- Changed Turtle Power Difficulty from a number to EASY/MEDIUM/HARD
EASY = 3 shots, MEDIUM = 4 shots, HARD = 5 shots
The number of required shots will increment by 1 each time Turtle Power
Multiball is played afterward.
- Install presets now change Final Battle Difficulty adjustment
- Final Battle Challenge adjustment was labelled incorrectly
- Adjusted the min and max the glider can travel.
- Adjusted the min and max the glider can be calibrated.
- Made it so if you pick LEO and you make your skill shot you will receive
your skill shot and you will start Training on that same shot.
- Added spinner flasher to the light sweeps in the game.
- Added left disc flasher to the game over lamp effect.
- Changed some of the text in Instant Info.
- Changed Instant Info Pizza topping page to show one topping instead of the
current amount the player has.
- Changed Bonus held from holding the pre-multiplied amount to hold it all and
then adding it to the total for the next ball.

All they had to do was put a 0.2c washer under the guide pin to keep it off the pf

Never had to do that on any of my games up until recently, clearcoat used to be a little thicker, rock hard and like glass!

Now people are taking apart their brand new games to add washers. What a mess.
