I got one of the very first but a shipment is expected to go to CT likely this year. So, best to contact Melissa for pricing and availability for your research.

It’s not neon but led by the way.

#4408 12 days ago

All-

I am looking for some help with new Arch Linux used on TBL. Looking for an Linux “expert” who can help with automount of drives and error.

Maybe you know someone that can help - just ping me.
Thx!

I know his role was small but still legendary. Everyone knows that “Liam and me we’re gonna F*** you up!” Jim and I became buddies after I met him at Lebowskifest in 2017. Mostly because he had a crush on my wife haha. But we kept in contact on and off between Lebowskifests. Well my buddies in The Achievers let me and my wife know that Jim passed away this morning. I don’t have the game but for those that do make sure you push start a few times in Jim’s honor.

Sorry to hear that and for your loss. What was Jim’s Pinside name?

He wasn’t on Pinside or really a pinballer. Just The Jesus’ bowling partner and sidekick in the movie.

Sorry to hear. The two were such a stark contrast that it worked so well in the movie

#4413 11 days ago

Made another playlist at the request of another user. Happy to distribute to others. PM for details. This playlist sticks more to the TBL theme:

So is the idea here that I have to manually switch out the tunes or is there a way to automate that?

I am interested in the concept if it will randomly or auto switch music. Sorry if I am not reading previous relevant threads.

Hello all. Wow seems like I have been reading this thread for weeks there is a lot of great information here as always. Placed an order with CT end of October and am a huge fan of this movie and pin. I already have a list going for mods and must have items very excited to get this NIB pin #4 in the man cave. Anyone have a clue what my wait time might be? Melissa said probably this summer but I would be thrilled to see it this time 2023. Just wondering what other people are experiencing.

4EA46AB7-55A9-49F6-A9AE-1F9274B19C27 (resized).jpegAs not many people got the Achiever Edition plate on their game, I am making a Limited Edition plate available for the Big Lebowski. Below is a draft of the Limited Edition plate that can be customized with your game's serial number. It can come in silver or gold text/logos and a black background. Size will be 1.5 x 5 inches. If you want it a big larger, just PM what you are looking for. Also below are some other plates I have made that will give you an idea of how they look when printed.

It really ties the game together Thanks.

A "Limited Edition" plate for a not limited pinball ?
What will be your limit ? Number 267 of 18653 ?
There is a reason for the Achiever Edition , it is not just an optical thing.
I dont understand this ....

EDIT: Ahhh ... you have an engraver shop and you are flooding every "Club thread" to sell your plagues. So it is just a commercial kind of spam for the signs.
I understand that you want to sell this plates, but making every pin to a limited ... mhhh.

Yeah. Strangely, people seem into this from responses in other threads. Is "sad flex" a thing?

Sorry, thought some owners might want to add an edition plate to their game. I am looking for a volunteer in the US to receive a few free plates to see what size/color might look best. Please PM if interested in assisting. Thanks.

I agree with everything you said here, and the ignore feature is helpful in these cases.

Thank you, I am not intrested.
I have a "Limited Achiver Edition" with a plate on the apron ... therefor I have no need for a second plate on the game stating that my game is kind of a "LE" were I know it is not a limited pinball. DP can build TBL for the next 200 years if the demand is there.
I also see no reason to make out of any "Pro version" a "limited Pro version". It makes no sense to me.

I applied the slight bend to the rug microswitch using a leaf adjustment tool and it registers hits very reliably now.

I did the bend just to the right of the actuator nub on the switch body and bent down around 10-15 degrees.

Night and day difference, thanks Rensh !

Now if I can settle the cabinet rattles this thing will be perfect.

Put electrical tape on both sides of the glass (so that the tape wraps even on the top and bottom). When you slide the glass in it will be much tighter and you can't see the electrical tape. Rattles should go away...

#4432 7 days ago

So my TBL arrived today and I’m just loving it. The build quality especially - well done. Feels old school. Everything seems to be working except the left ramp Diverter - sometimes it doesn’t allow the ball to get locked and diverts it even though both targets are lit. Any suggestions or remedies to address it? I’ve searched on the forums bc I feel like others have had this issue but I’m not seeing a solution. Something must be loose.

And the custom music by jyeakley is so good.

You guys are making me jealous. I paid in full in August so hoping my # gets called soon!

#4435 7 days ago
Quoted from jyeakley:

I put it and the right orbit end cap mod to divert the ball to the left flipper both in first thing before I even powered it on, it sounds amazing man thanks again!! The randomizer at game start is money and every other song feels/sounds soo good! I was definitely inspired on my 4th game and 2nd White Russian I cleared 4 of the 6 tasks to get close to the dude abides and racked up what I guess is a decent score on this one while my poor buddy watched me have a 20 min ball 3 hah(:
I had several switch errors those first few games mostly just needed to gap several, and then the top gate on the ramp behind the upper pf was sticking and it just needed a little bending so it wouldn't bind. All of the top rollover switches seem like I may need to bend them down a tad cause even though I have the game set up pretty steep the ball still gets hung on those every once in a while because they stick up so far. All easy adjustments for a nib so no sweat of my pumpkin spice Caucasian!

So I fixed the one issue I was having with mine. Build date august 22 (I’m the second owner but only 100 plays on it so - basically new). Posting my solution here in the event anyone has this happen again. I’m also contacting Dutch so they’re aware and can include in their manual. Their support is great btw for a boutique.

My left ramp Diverter would sway left and right when you push on it and that sway would lead to the Diverter catching the ramp plastic and missing the hole in the ramp to drop when triggered by the lock shot. This resulted in an inability to lock a ball as the ball would constantly be diverted.

The fix here is that there are two screws that hold the Diverter metal arm to the metal rod that is controlled by the solenoid. At the factory they installed this to the metal rod way too high and therefore it was able to swing above the cut in the ramp and actually hit the ramp when the metal rod beneath the pf would drop, resulting in the ball just being diverted.

To resolve I held the nut in the back and unscrewed each screw a little (see yellow arrows of what I unscrewed) so I can lower that metal arm a little. Enough so that it couldn’t possibly miss that hole in the ramp to drop (basically sits now right in it vs above the hole). All good.

The quality of the flipper feel , mechs, pf, sound equipment and code (for what I’m looking for which is not Toy Story dumb but not pirates complex) is fantastic. Like a new Bally’s pin but built in 2022. Very happy.

KoenHeltzel Great stuff!

Something to put on the list for 1.02 - the high scores are off by one.

Meaning, if you get the Grand Champion, it says you acheived High Score #1.
If you get High Score #1, it says you got HS #2, etc.

The actual high score list is correct, it's just the award at end of game that is off.

Is there shaker motor code in TBL and ifso which model works with it? Thanks

About to watch the Netherlands play and get some Dude games in! I offered to temporarily put a red light under the White Russian and drink bloody Mary’s while we play but ppl are afraid the Dude will get indigestion.

Just curious - what flipper should the ball return to when hitting the left orbit?

As it goes around and exits underneath the right spinner?
