Hey there,

Got mine not long ago and have a question, probably missing something.

Regarding the skill shot, how do you chose between one and another? On my machineI see it going very fastr from top light to bottom and I always end up with the right orbit skill shot.
Would be nice to know how to solve this

#4286 4 months ago

Thanks for the feedbacks!

I have now understoof what's happening but still unsure on what to do to solve it
=> as soon as the ball is kicked from the feeder VUK into the shooter lane, the shooter switch is hit, thus blocking the skill shot on "lane".

Any idea on how I can manage that?

#4288 4 months ago

Went to the switch test as a start actually, not activating until I push it, as expected.
The double signal is an idea, will have a closer look tomorrow

#4302 4 months ago

Double contact it was, so this issue is solved. Thanks for the help!

Now on to the next question:
Don't think my magnet is working. Went to the tests; spinned/opto/switch are all ok but I don't see any magnet kickin' in.
What's the correct way to test it?
If it is not trigering, how can I pinpoint the issue?

#4310 4 months ago
Quoted from Neal_W:

Check the magnet fuse. (F20) If blown, try a 4A slow blow fuse.

That, it was my precious...
Thank you sir

Restore done. I’m happy[quoted image][quoted image][quoted image][quoted image][quoted image][quoted image][quoted image]

Sweet! Where did you buy your cabinet decals? Need to change mines.

#4332 4 months ago
Quoted from JHPSWE:

I haven’t changed decals
I washed them and did some hand painting.

Oh ok! Looks nice!

If someone knows where to get LoTR decals that aren't bad...

#4335 4 months ago
Quoted from winteriscoming:

Are the ones that are available bad?

Don't know but given the quality of the original art and the price of the kits, I'd rather take it somewhere where a test has already been done.

Did receive crappy quality for other games, so I am cautious now.

#4337 4 months ago

Where did you get the diy palantir?

For your question: as you want one led to work as intended and another to work the opposite as intended, I am pretty sure you need a small home made pcb for that.
There is no light on the game that is lit specifically when the palantir is off.

Do you sell the path with the figures as a kit?

#4343 4 months ago

From what you say I would pronounce the switch dead and simply replace it.

#4356 4 months ago

If you could provide it unpainted for those of us skilled with brushes and airbrushes, it would also reduce cost and your burden

#4371 4 months ago

No founds right now but I will gladly take an unpainted one by the end of the month

#4373 4 months ago

Yes, for Valinor you must get all the gifts, finish all multiballs (saving all the company.for example) and destroy the ring.
There are some video tutos on the net.

What's the ref of that replacement coil?

#4393 3 months ago
Quoted from BENETNATH:

Hi Guys,
not sure it has been mentioned here, but there is an ongoing PIN2DMD colorization effort here :
I'm planning to set it up asap

Stayed away from pin2dmd as I was not happy with the colorizazions, but this one looks finally promising.
Might need to dig a bit to see what over titles now look ok

#4395 3 months ago

hi guys,

Tool some time to install my playfield protector, but now facing an issue; the gate in front of Orthanc that opens during war of the ents is now behaving strangely; it kind of shakes when it opens due to the coil.
Any idea on how to make it still as it was before when opened?

#4397 3 months ago
Quoted from f3honda4me:

Mine is doing this and I don’t have a PF protector. I plan to check the solenoid it might be worn or parts need replacement or binding somewhere etc.

Looked and found service bulletin 147 which seems related to this.
For sure I did not put it back that way, will try that tomorrow.

Yep, that solved it!
Last issue left: ball througb

Sometimes the ball are going all the way down, so the kicker opto does not see them and it goes for a ball search. Any idea on how to solve this?

#4408 3 months ago
Quoted from Kkuoppamaki:

Are the balls magnetized and get stuck in the trough? This is a pretty typical issue in LOTR's

Shoot, did not think of magnetization... have been trying to adjust the switches for hours.

So no way to solve it apart from shaking the machine? Or very regular ball change?

#4440 3 months ago
Quoted from ktownhero:

May I ask what technique you used to put the sillyoldelf blades on? Did you pull the whole playfield? I've had mine sitting uninstalled for months!

I've installed severals only raising the playfield as usual.
Do one half, then the other.
Also works for powerblades.

#4464 3 months ago

Mine does it as well, also wondered about the one in Papa, but I don't think that feeding Orthanc every time is a nornal behaviour

The Ring of Fire mod looks fantastic, but is sold out on the Mezel Mod homepage. Does anybody know if and when it will be again?

The roll over switches in the through and sword are driving me nuts, can't manage to get them perfectly setup.
Is there a trick of some sort?

So, for the next one to have this issue:
Solved by buying the exact switch reference and replacing them all.
If you put a standard roller roll over switch, it just does not work correctly.

Lesson learned.
