Any advice on adjusting the left loop metal guide to avoid so many SDTMs from Rug Skillshot and/or during the rug mode that opens the left gate when you hit the right loop? I found a couple posts where someone shaved down / "flattened" the side of the post rubber that touches the end of the metal then another where someone said they "bent" the metal guide slightly. But I'm not sure the expected behavior i.e. if its supposed to funnel to the left or right flipper. Mine when it doesn't drain will catch the very tip of the left flipper. I do have the game leveled to 6.5 and L/R level seems solid. I was looking for an adjustment on the underside instead of going and bending the metal but either it's hidden under one of the PCBs or doesn't exist. Appreciate any advice!

Lockbars are one of the most difficult parts to get for DP talking about vendor problems.

It’s official not chrome by the way but high polished nowadays. Very very difficult to see the difference between them by the way.

Questions to owners... Is that right ramp a smooth shot, or is it bricky? I have an R&M, and the left ramp is just a pain. I can live with having one game like that, but definitely not two.

Also, do the upper and lower playfields get old quick? I'm not a fan of most secondary pfs personally. Not a fan of the upper pf on GoT, the lower on Munsters and ACDC, etc...

And finally, Rensh do you happen to know if they're going to put a final wizard mode in the game and make it reachable to reasonably skilled players?

Thanks all

The right ramp is for sure doable but I prefer to shoot it on the fly as from a cradled flipper the ball has difficulty to reach the end of the ramp.

The upper playfield had last ability for sure and incorporates many functions. Bowling alley is a great toy and really belongs in a Lebowski pinball but I can understand if people don’t see lastability in it.

Than the final wizzard. For sure it will be programmed but telling for a non existing wizzard if it is obtainable yes or no?
Let’s say that you need to light up 5 inserts and I only got to 3 yet. But I am not really focusing on this. In any case, the difficulty is programmable so you can always adjust this to you liking.

I hope this helps you in your choice.

These are going in on my Lebowski. Can you guys share your mods? I am also making a coffee container and I am thinking I will do the wireform set in copper.
(The In n Out sign is free in Thingiverse, I am just not very good painting. ).

There are plenty found on Ali expres as a keychain. Personally I don’t think they look OK in the TBL but that’s personal taste. And you get a bowling ball to

The pins are too big and don't really think they'll look good in it. I will only be using the bowling balls.

It really does tie the game together. Honestly the box looked like it went to Iraq and back I think I ordered it in April. I just received it the second week of July but well worth the wait and thanks to Rensh and Barry at Dutch, they have always been very responsive and helpful.

Great to hear, and very much looking forward to being a part of this community, eventually getting my game w apron ( I've only had deposit in for a few months so guessing in '22 sometime..I'm patient)...

Cointaker sells these. Mistitled as a "lockdown bar" as it's just the decorative add-on.

You are wrong, they fit well on top of the airball plastic in front of the lock.

I agree. I used glue to hold them together and 3m double sided tape. I think it fits in nice. Works great for a keychain too.

"That's like your opinion" They are too big in my opinion. They fit, yes, but they look too big for my taste. Too big, makes them look cheap.

#2387 13 days ago

Honestly it’s expensive, really in the large scope of life not worth it. I got it anyhow and I’m glad I got it. Really makes you feel like you still have the most gorgeous pinball ever designed. It gave me a new reason to smile when I play the game.

Any word from DP on how to get some plastics that don't disintegrate on touch? My machine looks like it has been through a war and it only has a handful of games on it.

Just curious.

According to Rens's update on the private EA thread, TBL production has been slow for the last couple of months or so due to DP waiting on various parts. No EA games have apparently been produced during this time, but EA games production is expected to start again in Sept.

Hmm. Let me make a wild guess. Contact DP perhaps . Sent an email to [email protected].

Include some pictures as I am curious to see a TBL which has gone to war and TBL serialno . Oh, and full adress for shipping costs.

Nope. It’s only leds and some fets I think so how that could cause a high pitch buzz?

I don't know, but it is. I am getting some feedback from something. I installed exactly per the instructions. I didn't have this buzzing prior to installing the apron.

Assuming when you hear the
Buzzing noise you unplug the Apron
And the noise goes away?
