Did the ends fall off? Mine did when I installed my ColorDMD...I just trimmed the frayed part and resoldered and they were just like new.

#3503 50 days ago

yeah they are both ripped.i used alligator clips so i could still play it until i get new ground cables

#3504 50 days ago

the only reason i knew it it started doing crazy things like saying no payem no gayum over and over

#3505 49 days ago

Can anyone tell me if the top right habit rail is supposed to have a brace that helps support the end where it drops the ball? Mine only appears to be secured where it comes out of the playfield and when the ball comes out it kinda shakes the rail left and right a little. Just seems like there should be something in there to support the end.

Also the flashers in the very back of the playfield, on the section raised off the playfield with the cryptkeeper picture, is there supposed to be domes over them?

Quoted from PinballOrphanage:

I found one that isn't originally correct, but works great and being brass looks at least right. Paid $13 shipped

Where can I buy one do you know? BTW here are a few more pics.

Was just watching my 3D printer doing its thing then looked at my TFTC as I was walking by, someone smarter than I must be able to just print the handle and head part easily, no?

I found the head on pinside or ebay, but the handle, just keep an eye out for a brass thumb latch handle on e-bay. the upper area needs to be pretty flat. The one I found fit perfectly under the recess of the head

#3510 41 days ago

That second one looks like it would be a good doner .

#3511 39 days ago
Quoted from DeathHimself:

something like this work?
ebay.com link » Antique Brass Door Pull Hardware Art Deco Handle Decorative Brass Designed
or if you need the thumb trigger as well:
ebay.com link » Vintage Art Deco Brass Door Pull Handle Thumb Latch 10 1 2

first one won't work you need a working thumb latch. The second one will but you may have to extend the strike on the handle and relocate the switch to make the switch easier to work

I’ve got my TFTC arriving on Saturday and I can’t wait to be part of the club.

Just became a member last weekend! Is anyone else here on the CPR list for a new PF? Mine is okay, but would definitely warrant a new PF if it was available.

Not here. I’d consider a new cabinet. My game was a re import from Spain. With the exception of the scoop, which I repaired with wood filler and then a Cliffy, my PF is in excellent condition and I keep it waxed. In my experience DE made some durable PF’s but a new one is going to look great if you can get it.

Put out a WTB ad for a NOS playfield. Worked for me.

I've also seen a few of them for sale on pinside. Good luck!

#3517 18 days ago

Just joined the club! What a cool game. I got a really nice one for a good deal. It’s always nice to meet other pinheads. BTW...some of my flashers need to be replaced (it has been converted to led with an ocd board). I can’t figure out if they are 5v or 12v flashers.

There’s only suppose to be two pins upstairs, but 3 fits so well, we are just gonna buy more for the basement...I like my wife’s logic

Nice, is that the one that was for sale in Elkhorn, NE over the weekend?

Yup. Really nice pin from really nice people.

Sigh, made plans with the guy to buy it over the weekend but he changed them... looks like it found a great home though, so all good.
If you ever decide to sell I would love another shot at it!

#3521 16 days ago

Greetings boils and ghouls - was wondering if anyone else experienced this issue....

Ball is not feeding into the shooter lane. Active switch test is correctly reflecting all the ball trough switches. Any thoughts on where to start?

TIA

Check the shooter lane coil switch to see if the ball is hitting the switch hard enough to activate it being kicked into the shooter lane. Mine was being finicky and I just bent the switch a tad towards the ball trough.....enabling the ball to hit the switch hard enough.

My display keeps saying display version blah blah blah ect and just keeps saying this. I started jiggling around the wires and when I touched something in the back box at the top of the top right board it started working. I think I may have been jiggling a ribbon cable up towards the top when it started working. Any ideas?

This game and DE games produced during that period are known for shooter lane problems. This might help, as it did for me. https://pinside.com/pinball/forum/topic/testing-de-ball-trough-switches#post-3883196

Dear lord!! Good luck with that. Props for the wife joining in. I managed only a 6 hour drive (one way) myself.

Sounds like you didn't have the latest software....makes a big difference....

Quoted from TheHueManatee:

Best and most important mod would be a color DMD. Then pinstadiums.
But something cheap and fitting are these eyeball props I bought on eBay. They look real and I put them over the two ramps and creature feature scoop.
I just needed to dremmel them a bit so they could fit onto the LED bulbs.
You can get them from eBay user : deadheadprops

Do you have the plastic for the captive ball?

They are great. I ended up using zip ties to keep them in place and bunch them into the wires. I had a few missed right ramp shots that would land in the eye balls tail and get stuck. Lol

It’d be interested. What do you have? If you could take some pics I might be a player.
