Same experience here - once it's fixed it's fine. Mine had a TON of plays and after it was initially fixed was fine for the entire time it was on location (now getting fixed up since the subway fell apart)

Quoted from sd_tom:

ok so beyond the 'fix' with the zip tie.. other things i did (just looked at my emails with barry)

this mounting situation on the big pcb is not ideal.. especially the power pins (the bottom left area). i think in addition to what i wrote to barry, i eventually very carefully unplugged the p-roc from the main pcb and very slightly bent the power pins so they had better contact with the receiver end when the board was plugged in. but you have to be very careful to not bend the pins when unplugging it since theres a lot of pins / pulling the board off evenly is challenging.
and yeah, make sure some gorilla didn't overtighten any of the boards so they are now bowing.
good news is ive never had to go back in there and do it again or had p-roc not found errors

Quoted from luvthatapex2:

Isn’t there a coil setting in the service menu to increase flippers s bit?

Yes but i dont see much change. Its fine for normal gameplay but when you play it for a long time the coils heat up and the ramps can be a chore so just a touch more power should do alot

So that's where my pin ended up. I was the fortunate first owner of 30. Glad to hear it's still being enjoyed.

#311 14 days ago

Big Lebowski is an amazing game no doubt about it. I'm going to rank this as one of the best 5 pinball games ever made.

I really wish Dutch Pinball could have survived, this industry needs a company that will tackle cult classic films. Furthermore you can see they had the eye for detail. What a shame so many people get screwed and this company couldn't survive. I'm hoping they can get it back together again, and make more games for the people who didn't get theirs.

Anyone have issues where the ball doesnt kick into the shooter lane?

#316 13 days ago
Quoted from Robertstone0407:

I had that at first ! I’m a knuckle head
When I set the game up
I put all the balls up top and not one below. Game would kick out one ball to start then nothing after that. I played one game after a 12 hr day and went to bed .Then next day I fixed it !
Gotta say I’ve unboxed a lot of new games but was nervous with TBL

I honestly haven’t been playing it, been reading the do’s n don’ts
Then I’m going to spend a day on it
I did put a sheet of voodoo glass in it
And a chrome Williams lockdown bar
(Wider version, Earth Shaker/Diner era)
I do look at every night lit up ! Same with Addams Gold next to it 200 plays since new

This is a in play thing. I do know when you lose the ball this game has a garbage ball search. Hopefully we can get some updates lol

How do u like that Voodoo glass? Its quite a bit cheaper than PDI and Invisiglass so might start going in that direction if its on par

Why did you replace the lockdown bar? Isn't the OEM one chrome?

+1 on the voodoo, about to pull the trigger on 3 slabs and saving some money is always a good thing if the same quality is there

Lockdown bar is polished, I like the old school Williams bar it’s a little wider
I put the other one inside the game
The bar is like Flash, Gorgar- Diner, ES
Fits like a glove. Hot Rod plating! Thanks Chris love the Chrome & voodoo glass

Anyone get a Topper yet from CT ?

#324 8 days ago

Love seeing all these new, shiny Lebowski's. Any damaged games coming in from this shipment overseas? Because that would be my luck. You know, DHL pulling up and the box falling into pieces as wood, metal, and glass came falling out lol

At least one I know showed up with a broken backglass. Looks like it just needed glass.

#326 8 days ago
Quoted from Time:

If that was it I could live with it.. but a game with such limited production would be hard to turn away. I know all of these was insured from CT for the full amount, it would just suck to have to be the one making a big loss claim. In my decade of buying NIB games, I've never had a catastrophe, but I've certainly had friends that have.

I'm also surprised we haven's seen more pics of new owners getting their games? No need to hide, show us the goodness!

Congrats to all you TBL owners.

I got a chance to play a game on one yesterday and, boy, was I impressed. Such a game! Don't know that I've seen a better looking game. Fa'realsie! The lighting is just perfect! Shots are smooth. Can't really comment on the rules as I didn't progress too far. I did get one crack at bowling (fun!) and locked a single ball on the left ramp. Clips on the screen looked great. Santana music was just right. Plated armor is super nice. And the rug was in place beneath the game! It felt solid like a JJP. It's great to see that Barry - crook or not - strove to build an uncompromising game. I happen to like to stand over pinballs and just watch the inserts dance in attract mode. TBL is second to none that way. Wow!

Why would you need to match the power supply exactly? Isn’t this just a standard PC power supply?

Quoted from okgrak:

yeah, of all the parts, i wouldn't worry about this one being hard to replace. ASRock computer would be the first thing as they are already rare.

I guess the good thing is if they start making more games, unless they bought 500 ASRock's , they will have to support a newer board eventually

Quoted from okgrak:

Cheap insurance with identical replacement.

Also the plug in ports are not identical to other manufacturers PSU.

You might be able to buy a more expensive Cooler Master model that is still in production?

Also to sd_tom - I thought of this as well. I am hoping they do have an update so we can purchase; however, who knows if they make these additional 200+ machines? I am hoping they do so we have replacement parts potentially.

Also ASROCK makes sister boards to q1900-itx . Like the q1900m, q1900b etc. one of these I am sure will work. I plan on figuring that out since they no longer make the q1900. Clone hard drive, plug in new board and cpu to see what happens....

In meantime, hoping DP has already done this and can give us this path forward. Hoping.....

Thanks missed that above!

One more question- I noticed a TP-Link usb device plugged in. Can the TBL be hooked up to the internet? Or was that a future option? Or did they accidentally leave this plugged in ?

Thx

I’m new to this. I want to buy a backup motherboard. What’s the difference between the asrock q1900 and q1900b? Size? Will the q1900b work?
