Quoted from Cyrus:

This is in place of the roll over switches in the trough? I never knew this was an option on Tales.

Yup...goodbye flaky switches! I actually caught a post in the JP club thread from davi .He was making them for JP so I PM'd him about one for my TFTC. Maybe send him a PM, he may have some extra lying around.

Ok, thanks. I sent him a PM. I replaced all of my roll over switches last year but I’d take an opto board over the switches anyday.

Added a Crypt Keeper head behind the tombstone.

#3354 11 months ago

I'm trying to get lucky like thehuemanatee and possibly find a NOS or Repro TFTC Playfield. If anyone has any leads or is looking to sell theirs please PM me. I've posted a WTB on market as well. Thanks everyone!

Hey boat,I need the scoop on the service rails you installed please.

#3357 10 months ago

Call me, I’ll give you the low. If you provide the beer I might even come help you install!

Boat,willing to help for beer,what a great pinball brother,will give you a call.

Okay guys, any advice here would be appreciated. Every time I hit my right flipper it increases my score 50000 points and every time I hit my left flipper it awards me a shot towards axe-tra ball.
Does this sound like a board problem, something under the play field crossed or a rom issue?

#3360 10 months ago

Going to be joining the club in 2 days, I can't wait !!

#3361 10 months ago

Congrats you won’t regret it, it’s a great game.

Theft flipper clack could cause a switch to trigger if it isn’t adjusted properly. Maybe check the contacts to make sure they aren’t too close. Not sure about the right one.. depends what switch awards 50k.

What is the best rom revision for this game?

Has anyone done anything to increase the flipper strength besides adjusting coils to hard? That left ramp is a b ioch to consistently make with them as they are now.

On a positive note I made the skull crack in shot when mode was on on first shot 1st time Eva to get that damn extra ball

I don't have any issues.....but do you have the correct coils installed on the flippers?

In addition in making sure you have the right coils - don't forget the value of a flipper rebuild - even if things seem ok - I'm always surprised what a rebuild difference makes...just did mine about 3 months ago - made a big difference....

#3369 10 months ago

Thanks Hue and Sonic....this was my 1st pin bought years ago....Will check the coils and do the rebuild.

Cheers!!

Joined the club on saturday the 11th. Can't believe I finally got one. Looks great next to my Freddy pin and Addams family pin. Drove 2 hours to Phonixville PA to get it from Pinball Clinic. After that I drove another hour to NJ to pick up a Rescue 911. The TFTC is in great shape. It was owned in the same home for 20 years. It has LEDs, the original door handle and topper. I plan to install a color DMD and a cliffy in the future and maybe a crypt keeper mod. I am loving playing it so far. I might upgrade to Chad H code, sounds pretty neat.

Color DMD makes for a great playing experience.

Go with Chads code ,it is a great improvement over the last original code.

#3376 10 months ago

Welcome fatality, game looks great. Scoop looks nice too, get a mantis protector over the cliffy IMO. Way better gameplay with the mantis

#3377 10 months ago

Hi Guys, first time post in Pinside. Doing a light refurb on my
TFTC and wondering what I am missing on the clear plastic protector
on the RHS (of picture)?
Hole alingment is off but the only way to rectify would need
a post screwed into the timber trim? Any advice is welcomed. The
LHS (of picture) clear protector looks ok but unsure if it is the taller plastic
post or the lighter grey shorter plastic post thats used here?
Thanks in advance for any help.

Does anyone know what Eprom number is for the game rom without having to look? Mine has a sticker over it and I would rather just burn a new eprom then erase this one.

I ordered some TFTC blue paint from pinball universe last week. I plan on touching up the interior side walls and cabinet front where it needs it.

#3379 10 months ago

I need the air ball stopper plastic, can anyone send to Sweden and what is the total price please

#3380 10 months ago

Has anyone done the modifications to get a Color DMD LCD to fit? Is it worth it instead of just using an LED display?

#3381 10 months ago
Quoted from Irishbastard:

Personally I'd go with the Color DMD LED. Nothing needed to fit and has beautiful vibrant colors. Folks have had mounted the LCD version but it will require some work.

#3382 10 months ago

Can anyone help me with a problem? It happens rarely....but sometimes when the multiball is lit at the middle spinner, I place a shot into the right ramp and it awards multiball as if I hit the middle spinner.

What would be causing this?

Thanks

Sean, as I understand it, the game will give you the multi ball from the right loop ONLY if you have not had a multi ball yet.So it helps you into multi ball the first time it is available. The right ramp is a mystery.

Yea, that was my plan...but I'm picking up a used newer LCD...so, I'm thinking get out the Dremel...just wanted to see if anyone here did it already.

I have an LCD that I have moved around from game to game and enjoyed. I ordered an LED for TFTC and like it much better. The vibrancy and brightness is making me wish for an LED in everything now.

#3389 10 months ago

are you guys getting you led panels from color dmd or p2dmd? Is one better then the other?

contact djshakes he made em. also makes the drop target red plastic.

#3392 10 months ago

I did dremel, I didn't have a proper cutting wheel so it wasn't the best experience. If you have a cheaper LCD, might as well go for it. the cutting doesn't have to be that accurate.

ColorDMD. I'm not familiar with p2dmd.

Totally agree. I’m happy with the LED. Easy install and one of the best mods you’ll ever put on your TFTC.

#3395 10 months ago

Hey guys

how do I contact chad in regards to the updated code for my tftc?

Also Just wanted to ask about the best things to add for the game? A mantis protector over a cliffy seems to be the argument but anything else as well?

Cheers

#3396 10 months ago

Joined the club today. I am going through the machine and I am having a problem with the scoop shoot kicking back. It doesn't kick back to the flippers but instead it kicks out to the right towards the upper flipper. Kinda strange. I inspected the scoop for warped or a broken weld and also looked at the coil. Both look good to me and cant seem to find a problem with it. Has anyone else encountered this problem before?

#3397 10 months ago

Got two questions since I have had my TFTC for a few weeks now but haven't had much time to play it. My DMD looks kinda not as bright as my other games. Is anyone elses like this? I plan on getting a color dmd in the future so this isn't a huge issue.

What does using the door handle to lock in a feature do? When ever I start a mode it says you can lock it in with the door handle. If you do it, a door bell sound is heard and it says feature locked

It locks in the currently lit feature on the Crypt Keeper's wheel so that value will be awarded the next time you shoot the scoop. If you don't lock in the currently lit feature it will change when you shoot any spinner.

And the red light over the shooter lane should come on to let you know that you have locked the currently lit feature.

Little late finding this one but if you don't have an answer yet....
CPU C5 should be a 27C512 and display roms are 27C040 (or equivalents, assuming standard image)
