Guys - what's the story with There and Back? I got all the modes. They were all blinking at the ring shot...I hit the ring shot and it just gives me the ring bonus. I thought maybe I had to shoot elf/dwarf/man shots to relight it. I must have shot like 15 of them. Nothing. So I'm just shooting around trying to figure out what to do, I hit the ring again and now it gives it to me....is my game screwed up or is there another rule beyond just starting all the modes? I'm on 9.0.

Once you’ve played all the modes and all the mode lights around the ring are flashing, you need to collect the 3 elf rings to light mode start. This is the point at which the ring will not spot an elf ring anymore. Hitting the ring once you’ve collected the 3 elf rings starts “There and Back Again”.

Quoted from attyrhodes:

Machine plays great, minimal issues so far, but want to make sure there isn't anything I should be installing to prevent work in the future.

Looks nice. I see you have Cliffy Protectors installed on the Gimli and Shire areas. (metal protectors made to protect the wood around scoops and saucers)

You need a protector for the Arwen plastic or that won't last!

The only way to go!

I still have my OG version from the original creator in my game that I have had new since '05

For $25 that's not bad.

Quoted from TheShaft:

I just picked this up, shipping was super cheap from UK to Canada. Haven’t gotten it yet though so I can’t vouch for it. It doesn’t have the connections made yet, but is much cheaper than the one from Marco’s I believe.

I should make some of those, less than 5 min to make and around $1 in parts; at under $3 to ship in the US I can post them for $10 with free shipping.

WARNING: This is a very opinionated post ... if you are easily offended and/or unable to tolerate opinions that differ from your own, please skip this post.

Quoted from mrgregb123:

1) I have the POTD plastic diverter installed, which sends it to the left wireform return. BUT it bounces hard on it and 50% of the time bounces right into the Shire area anyway. Is this normal?

Yes and No, the game was designed to do this. I would remove this diverter mod it as it looks like it adversely effects game play and may be be causing more issues than it prevents.

Quoted from mrgregb123:

2) I believe I have the newer Balrog light because it doesn't seem to be as crazy flashy/bright as those I've seen in videos. What is everyone using if they already have the newer service update installed since a standard flasher doesn't seem to work for that socket?

I'm using the original flasher bulb that came with the game...I actually have no idea if this is still available; I also have the service bulletin and original LED upgrade kit, just never needed to install it since the original bulb never failed.

Quoted from mrgregb123:

Is GI OCD needed for this game? I thought the shooter lane stream of lights was GI but it's clear those are feature lights that look like GI....haven't noticed much fading on the GI here...

If you have LEDs then yes as this was extremely well designed to maximize on the slow fading ability of incandescent lamps in both the GI and controlled lighting; I just don't see how LEDs add anything to this game even with OCD

Quoted from attyrhodes:

I have a goodie bag in the coin box, haven't put em on yet.

The original game came with white targets, there were no target decals; I believe the spare parts bag had the 2 spinner decals, one flasher and one GI bulb. I'm not sure about the LE remakes.
