Quoted from VividPsychosis:

Okay, so since the other thread was locked I guess I will start posting here. A few questions. 1. What is the PRoC upgrade for this game? What is it used for and where can it be found? 2. Anyway to get more of those aprons made looks like more of a market will exist now.

I second all this

#16 89 days ago

Who made the aftermarket apron. Id love to contact them to see if more can be made

Quoted from VividPsychosis:

Just wanted to let you know, after speaking with Melissa, and requesting that she speak with ARA/DP to add the more recent unreleased code (due for release with the Chinese games). I was told that DP has agreed and it will be released to all and installed on the 40 released games prior to shipping. you’re welcome.

You the man!

#104 59 days ago

Anyone know of or making custom rule cards?

#128 58 days ago
Quoted from WannaPinball:

Played for about an hour last night and there seems to be plenty to do. Don't know the deeper rules yet.
I'd appreciate input on ...
The only issue I'm concerned about is the lower flipper coils heating up to the point of making them noticeably weaker on ramp shots.
I adjusted the flipper opto bds by shimming the top a bit for the interrupters to go deeper (minimizing light leakage)
This seems to have made it a bit better.
Other ideas on this ...
Not sure that introducing fans on the coils is truly helpful but I would like to hear experiences.
Are there software settings for flipper strength that others have experimented with?
I see that the coils are RED 11630 ... has anyone swapped these for orange or maybe the left one for BLUE? Don't want too strong.
Love the strategy of holding off on left saucer until you collect as many characters as you can.
Multiple characters make multiball much more interesting!
Love the timeout feature of MARK IT ZERO shot to the saucer... a very subtle hurry-up
The bowling feature is way cool and unique! Much more interesting than I anticipated.

Wonder if you can put LOTR flipper coils on it

#130 58 days ago
Quoted from JustLikeMe:

I’m not sure if this is relevant to your situation, but not long after I received my machine back in 2016 DP sent replacement flipper coils out to all owners because the ones installed from the factory were incorrect. This may have been fixed on later games, but I have no problems making ramp shots even during long games.
As far as the rule go - there isn’t a great deal of strategy etc, but collecting bowling balls for specific characters doubles their jackpot shots in multiball. This video does a good job of explaining the nuances of the rules:

Mind taking a picture of them?

#137 58 days ago

Supposedly link to the new code

Thanks what size should they be printed in

#196 54 days ago
Quoted from Wiggy76:

Did the machine come with the rug to help pull the room together =)


#205 53 days ago

So the lockbar fitment is kinda off like CGC games. Back glass is insanely heavy. Game looks and shoots great. Theres a bad ball trap on the upper playfield ill figure a remedy and pass it along. All the rubbers even with sitting are perfect and the bowling ally has all upgrades. So far eveything has been great. One of my chrome legs needs the threads chased on the bottom. Not a huge deal

#251 51 days ago
Quoted from VividPsychosis:

Anyone else that just got a game, have their car mech come out all shaky like? Not smooth? Anyone know a fix for this? Do I need to oil or lube a gear or something?

Its a stepper motor. Its just the nature of the beast

#253 51 days ago
Quoted from VividPsychosis:

So normal operation? No causefornconcern?

No cause of concern.

#268 50 days ago

Installed new code anyone notice the upper playfield loop doesn't score sometimes. Did a switch test and all is good. Any insight

#269 50 days ago

Art blades installed. Tilt graffics. We need to get them aprons remade that light up

Quoted from adamross:

Nice. Appears you have bubbles though.

Yeah i had to redo the right side huge pain with that upper playfield

#274 49 days ago

We need to press for the code past.48

#281 47 days ago

Ive reached out and still trying to find someone to make lebowski apron.

#283 47 days ago
Quoted from Toucanf16:

Last August I wrote to Henrik at Pinball Dreams about TBL illuminated aprons. Pinball Dreams made all the illuminated aprons that Joey at Pinball Decals sold. Henrik told me he could not produce just one, but now that there are more TBLs out in the wild I think we should hit him up again about these aprons. I think we should all contact him to show interest.

Email sent. I suggest more email him like you said. I also asked if a version that still houses rule cards can be made

#284 47 days ago

If i had the time id love to see a lit bowling sign on the bowling alley on the uppet playfield with the stars lit up. Maybe bowling turns on when lets go bowling is lit

#295 46 days ago

I think im gonna put the next size up flipper coils on. They feel a touch to soft and a long night it can be a chore for the ramp

#302 45 days ago
Quoted from adamross:

What's the next size up?


#303 45 days ago
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

#314 42 days ago
Quoted from cpr9999:

Did this work for you?

Yes but i only did the right flipper and turned the power down a little

#315 42 days ago

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

#317 42 days ago
Quoted from whitey:

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[quoted image]

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

Quoted from Tuna_Delight:

Nice work Robert! If I ever get my TBL, you may be getting a similar request from me.
Different color though - I want to match my favorite bowling ball!

Ive considered a few finishes. Obviously one being a mirror black finish like dudes ball, also a nice metallic gold that kinda looks like a 90s bowling ball
