Quoted from Freakyguy666:

Is there a shaker in this game or is there no room due to the bowling alley mech?

No shaker, but there is room up front. Need code written to take advantage of this usually vs hardwiring in events....

I do not see a need for a shaker on this pin. Okay would be nice to feel hits while smashing the car but I am missing nothing.
You can add a shaker to every game. At least connect a relay on a flasher to drive the shaker. I had this over 10 years ago on my MM. Relais connected to the flasher in the moat. Worked very well.
Shaker are a nice thing, but at leat it will loosen your screws and connectors. It is not always usefull.

Regarrding the pictures from the bottom playflield. As I remember there is a dataconnection marked as "mods". This would be great to connect my topper.
Anyone figured out how the connection is realised ? I guess it works the same way as for the AE´s apron lightning.

#12703 14 days ago

This mod Connector is used for the EA apron. And when the lit apron for non achievers comes available it will be needed to for that one.

I was asked to post a couple pics of the underside boards, here they are:

Beat me to it. You can clearly see that they moved the motor in these pics on our new machines. My biggest worry is that huge ribbon cable being so close to the playfield hinge. Gotta make sure that is nice and tidy before putting the playfield down.

Are you getting airballs on your machine off the standups? That's why I claimed I think my machine has all the improvements other than that. Waiting to hear from DP support.

Here’s the email I sent Barry when I had the same problem:

I got tired of waiting for upgraded stand up targets form DP. I took mine apart, got rid of that junk metal back piece on them. I had two new targets that were laying around, took off the STRONG back metal piece and used them. Was able to peel off the felt pad and super glue them on the new metal. They work kick ass now, no issues anymore of the metal bending back from too many shots and having the balls fly up into the glass and over the flippers. I think they were the round red stand up replacement targets that I bought for a time machine that I was restoring....long story short...they work awesome.

for the standups on the main playfield I just added an extra (additional) piece of 1/4" thick foam (weatherstripping) and it solved the problem completely.

My parking targets are still giving me grief...particularly the right one, I cannot for the life of me get it to stop vibrating when hit and awarding multiple switch hits. so annoying...

So we best not use that multi-pin mod connector for our own custom mods then?
Or will there be an ability to tap off of it once the lighted apron is installed?

Forgot to post these pictures on updates I noticed.

I see nice wiring changes to bowling alley area.
I see FETs/Transitors moved that shorted to bowling alley.
I see reinforcements to targets.
I see car servo motor moved up.

I see a missing circuit board by the pop bumpers...not sure where that went.

And I see 2 new looking stops - can Rensh or someone else comment - those look different - arrows in RED.

NICE improvements DP!

The arrows in red point to ball control gates. This is a new improved by DP design over the original BW assemblies. Easier to assemble and less sensitive to the springs falling off.

In general DP made changes to the design to make it more robust and/or easier/faster to assemble and/or cheaper to make and/or delivery or quality issues with original supplier.

Barry told me last Saturday that he expects that no or just little changes in the future are to be expected. They tackled all ‘problems’ so far. But you never know and delivery issues in these weird Covid times are a reason to.

With the car/door servo now moved up to mini playfield....does this now make removing it much easier since there is no compression fitting below the main playfield?

Correct. Have not tried it myself but hearing Barry talk about it it sounds like the mini playfield in a simpsons. It’s just some screws and removing the upper flipper.

I need to get my hands on those new gate mechs. No matter what modifications or improvements I make to the existing parts, the right gate barely ever opens fast enough to allow well hit fast orbits from the left (Donny).

Can I file a warranty claim or will these “bolt on” improvements be made available to current owners?

Same thought. Has any asked if some of the new improvements will be available as products to purchase and install on an ARA built TBL?
