Quoted from Mfsrc791:

Did you just use an engraver to make that? Looks awesome! You should start selling them.

I had this professionally laser etched and cut. If anyone is interested in one PM me. If there's enough interest I'll get more made.

And thank you to the detectives -- I meant the poem was no where to be found on the playfield or plastics, at least from what I can see...

#1452 2 years ago

What, can no one here speak Mordorish! Of course the poem is there on the playfield. Check the pop caps.

Quoted from Thrillhouse:

It's also around the elven gift inserts too. That's why my original post had the line "(other than in script form)" in it.

The bottom of my spinner is forward and I have no trouble making the ring shot. I do have the stronger flipper coils.

I just replaced the fluorescent tube in the back box with a Cointaker color changing panel. It is so much better. I had to change the #6 holes to #8 by drilling and tapping to use the supplied mounting hardware.

#1455 2 years ago
Quoted from T-800:

Was tired of looking at the plain clear plastic overhanging the return on the left ramp so I decided to design my own mod. I thought it was strange the most common poem from the books isn't anywhere to be found on the game (other than in script form). Simple, but fills the space nicely.

That looks nice! I believe the poem is on the DMD in attract mode (unless mine is custom ---edit--- looks like a hundred people beat me to that!).

Someone made a nice custom wireform to serve the same purpose. I have an extra if anyone wants one.

Same here.

New to the club and looking to add a few mods. What are the best speaker lights for this? I'd like gold with the ring overlay and saw a few out there but not sure which one is the nicest. Also, is the Path of the Dead mod worth it? Considering that or spending a bit more and getting a led/LCD color screen. Appreciate any feedback

Potd mod is cool, but if it's between that and the ColorDMD, get the ColorDMD. Also, if you're LEDing the inserts, definitely look into LedOCD.

Which ColorDmd is better LED OR LCD?

#1460 2 years ago
Quoted from pghpinfan:

They are different, it's personal preference.

LED is brighter, some would say too bright.
LCD has more display options, some don't care about those.

Personally, I like to use dots xl mode so I won't buy led.

Quoted from pghpinfan:

As Maken said, it's completely a personal opinion. I actually like the LED version more but.

#1462 2 years ago

Any recommendations on the speaker lights?

The gold ring acrylics are available there too. They look quite nice.

#1464 2 years ago

Do those light up when the game is powered on or are they powered separately?

Quoted from pghpinfan:

They light up when the game is powered on since the plug into the accessory power connector

#1466 2 years ago

Free to good home, just pay shipping. Approximate size is 9 in x 9 in x 9 in. I intended to use it as a topper but lost it and now I don't need a topper. Same toy line as the playfield figures. First pm gets it.

Edit: This has been claimed. Thanks.

I want to buy a lord of the ring pin, how much do they cost if they are in great condition ?

#1468 2 years ago
Quoted from TouchingEvil:

Great condition on pinside seems to be 5000-5500. Good condition to routed machine under 5000 seems tougher to find and they go quick at that price, but you do see them around

anyone interested in this stainless steel speaker panel

Quoted from kapsreiter:

I might be but I think I would prefer it with the speaker openings completely open. I prefer the look of the ring acrylics with speaker lights.

#1472 2 years ago

Possibly if there is shipping to the UK.

Been searching this forum for info on lighting Balrog. I have the LED mod on my machine but it is so dim ....stuck a 47 in there for fun and wow....love the way it looks but of course doesn't last very long. Bought some 12v red leds from LEDlight (suggested) but they don't seem to work. Thinking about going back to the 89 socket and flasher bulb. Saw a link to comet and a led for the 44/47 socket. Anyone with experience with that or any suggestions/help would be greatly appreciated.

#1475 2 years ago

Hey guys. I had the ribbon cable upside down going to my display. I think I wrecked the rom. I pulled the chip, erased it and tried burning version 9 to it again, but I still get just a blank DMD. What all should I be burning to the chip for the version 9 of the display rom? Any help is super appreciated. Thanks.

I don't know crap about burning ROM's, but why aren't you on v.10?

I will get to 10, but I know 9 works so I want to get back there first.

That's nice Scott. I took that plastic off completely because I never had issues there and I didn't like the look. I would put this on though.

Quoted from LesManley:

That's kind of funny/interesting. I actually had more problems with the stock plastic on than with it off - it kept wanting to flex down and it would trap slow moving balls between the plastic and the ramp wire form. This etched acrylic is stiffer and I ended up putting a washer underneath it as well just to make sure there is plenty of clearance. At least the ugly "fix" is now some interesting that ties into the Tolkien lore.

Agreed, I would be interested in this with open speaker cutouts

I've been playing my SM (which I just got) so had not played LotR for a while, just played a couple quick games and feel like the rules on Lotr are second to none (or second to one that is Tspp).

I've heard tell that Woz rules are fantastic as well, but don't have much time playing that pin to tell.

Any club members know where I can buy a center ramp? Seems to be sold out at the usual stores.

Try seeing if one of the plating/powder coating guys (like pinballplatingandmore.com) has one. It'd be super shiny too!

only 1 piece left

Ok, years of mis-hearing a call out, and I'm not sure I even want to fix it, because, you know, it's part of my life and all, but here goes..what the hell is "mango silence"? You know where it is if you play enough.

#1490 2 years ago

What character says it?

#1491 2 years ago
Quoted from Neal_W:

I think it's Gandalf, but it could be some other old guy. The same voice that says the something is under attack.

It's inside a multiball.

That is Gimli blurting out "mind those ladders" during Two Towers Multiball.

Haha. Excellent. Thanks. A little part of me has died though, as it always made me chuckle.

#1494 2 years ago

Reminds me of song lyrics I can't figure out and I just sing nonsense.

Thanks for the suggestion! Unfortunately Ron does not have the center ramp.

Hoping that someone has one kicking around that they don't need, maybe I'll start a WTB thread.

Picked one of these up the other day. Looks great!!

#1497 2 years ago

Can anyone tell me what makes the lamps (lanes) on the potd change/advance? I need to make every shot there count. Stupid rotk multiball kicks my a$$.

Also, a quick rundown on when the post back there should be active to deposit the ball into the tower?

Thanks in advance.

Choose War Of The Ents as your first mode. It will deposit all loop shots into the tower then onto the Path Of The Dead.
Shooting the left loop after the ball has come down the right inlane will bring up the post and drop the ball into the tower again.

#1499 2 years ago
Quoted from paynemic:

As far as I'm aware, it is the white targets that advance them. So ring target (on the lower right), target at the top of the shire, and the target at the top of the sword ramp on the right increase the number of souls you collect on the POTD.

UPDATE: Yup, I just tested it. The Target in the Shire and the Ring (lower right) target advance the values for the number of souls. The one at the back of the sword ramp triggers awarding rings for the shot and sometimes advanced the soul value, but it was hard to determine exactly from other events.
