Quoted from cheshirefilms:

I found upres smoothing really fake-y on games I had it in like TZ. I was much happier with the LED. So to each their own.

Tz is one of the worst games for a color dmd as there aren't many animations. In fact, black and white looks the best for tz imo. It's a personal choice, no right or wrong.

Quoted from webdiddy:

I've spent hours up on hours creating a new sound pack for pinsound for this wonderful pin.
In my opinion many data east gems completely transforms with a new sound package and make them feel way more modern.
I have some small tweaks left to do before I release it.
I have replaced 99% if the music, 95% of all sound fx and 90% of all callouts.
Here's a preview:

Appreciate the effort but you pretty much changed it into a weird metal rock pin taking away from all the campy goodness that makes it what it is.Maybe you should put those efforts towards a re-theme.

I tend to agree with this. I don't understand the appeal of pinsound. I'd rather a sub installed than pinsound changing the originality of it.

I in with the sub if you have any recommendations let me know, cheers.

#3155 20 days ago

Done right pinsound would be sweet. It's just a lot of effort and the board is hella expensive. I'll redo the TFTC sounds one day. Goldeneye would be first though. I do agree that the metal takes away for the original appeal.

I have a prototype speaker-level sub connection kit on my TFTC that I'm testing for Pinnovators and I believe they are going to make it into a product. They make the kits to connect about any game to a sub. They also make a multi-input box (PINsmx) with individual input levels that can connect 4 pins to one sub. I have my TFTC, TWD, and AS connected to one sub with their kits and box. They are great people and their products work and sound great!

#3157 20 days ago

Thanks for the compliments!

We just made our new PINsub_MS (Multi System) subwoofer adapter board. I got this project rolling along pretty quick but I still need to post it on the Pinnovators website. The price will be the same as our other subwoofer kits too! ($35+ shipping). Basically its a fully isolated subwoofer adapter kit for any pin! Cables included too!

I'll be releasing my remix soon, people will be free to replace the music if they want to.
IMHO I think the metal music suits the pin very well, at least when it comes to the imagery.
And as I recall didn't Metallica have a song in the end of an TFTC episode? or was it the movie?
And I would guess that the crypt keeper was a metal head.

No I think he was a Dead Head fan

Got a very weak upper right flipper on TFTC.

If you give it any resistance then it stops flipping. However, if you flip without hitting a ball or any resistance then it does a nice full flip and holds strong.

Flipper coil wire connections look OK.

Flipper button looks good and I cleaned the contact.

All fuses on the flipper board are solid and not loose.

Any ideas where else I should look?

#3162 18 days ago

You could check the resistance (ohms) of the coil. Make sure its within spec. I doubt the transistor is pooched but you could do a visual inspection on the mosfet/transistor that is associated with that coil. You could also check the coil stop and sleeve to make sure they don't have excess wear or dirt.

I had issues with my upper right flipper and it turned out to be caused by intermittent shorting of the wires near the bottom right corner of the playfield (under the playfield). As the playfield went down into position it pinched them against the cabinet, causing an intermittent short. I can't really explain it much better (sorry), but check these wires in this area.

Pinsound tracks can be spectacular- go listen to Hazzard's BSD- personally this track isn't for me, I know John Borg likes Metal but on this game..um, yeah, not so much.

Yes and now you get pinsound soundboard and then download Hassard new sounds in full HD and 2.1 and then you will never leave the game

Are you talking about the captive ball eyeball?

Or the eyeballs over the ramps and scoop?

Ramps + scoop eyeballs come from eBay. eBay Username is ---> deadheadprops

The captive ball eyeball was also found on eBay. But I can't recall what user though.

Check with a local steel yard. I had one made for me a couple years back. Just took the old one in and they cut a new piece, drilled the hole for the screw and beveled the edges. Cost was less than $25.

What Hazzard sounds? Wasn't aware he did TFTC yet

#3174 6 days ago

After a few weeks it finally works again! Last night we got the play field put back together and got quite a few games in. Still a few adjustments to make but everything seems to work now.

For those following along we also had audio issues where the attract music would not shut off...ever. Replacing the ribbon cable from the sound board fixed this issue and now it behaves as it should.

(For reference this is the cable we purchased amazon.com link »)

Super fun game.

I really enjoy adding custom paint and Leds. The color makes the image pop out nicely.

Physically everything “looks” OK. The bushing is good. The flipper moves freely.

I even swapped out a known good Flipper Board and still same issue.

It appears that the upper right flipper is never getting the initial jolt of 50 volts and instead is only being fed the 9 volt holding power. The lower right flipper is totally fine.

Any more ideas?

Did you take a piece of paper and go between the contacts on the flipper switch? Do both contacts and did you change the Teflon tube in the coil?

Quoted from DeathHimself:

Yes.

It appears to be an electrical issue as the coil is never receiving the initial 50 volts and is only receiving the 9 volt holding power. I just don't have any idea where to look for the problem.

Have you gone through the "Solid State Flipper Circuit Troubleshooting Flowchart" on page 86 (pdf pages 118-120) of the owner's manual yet?

Chad - You indicated you swapped the flipper board - can you swap the PPB as well - the problem is likely board-centric - and there are only two boards that will cause a flipper problem - the Flipper Board or the PPB...it IS possible the power-supply board is a problem - but likely would effect other things.....swapping boards is a good method to narrowing this down...the #1 shit board in a DE pin is the power-supply board - followed by the PPB (this is why Xpin & Rottendog make replacements)....

That sounds great but- he doesn't even own the game if his Pinside profile is up to date?
I reached out to him for comment

#3183 3 days ago

This time he used virtua pinball to to find out sounds and what do replace so I am impressed

#3184 1 day ago

Is there a video or audio of Hassard/Hazzard's TFTC pinsound?

#3185 1 day ago

Hi All,

I've made airball stoppers for the drop target banks on Indiana Jones. Airballs coming from the drops practically ruin game play. I owned a TFTC and noticed the same thing. I made a stopper and it worked well. I will be making a batch of these for TFTC if there is interest. Probably sell the laser cut piece for around $15 shipped. This will prevent the drop targets from flinging the ball into the air and causing drains you can't control. Let me know if there is interest. It is a clear plastic piece that mounts over the drop targets.
