Quoted from Eskaybee:

Anybody else go from 6 balls to 0 balls after a 6-ball powerchord jackpot?

Oh no,
6 like wow, awesome !
Im lucky to get 3
I can see my game getting better.
This is the most relaxing multiball game I have ever played. Sterns are just crazy, full on, but GnR just feels so good. I think once I get my heat problems sorted out I'll be in with a chance of decent scores.
My vision is ordinary at best and GnR is the only pinball that I can play comfortably in the dark. This is not possible on my Sterns , just too hard to see the ball.
GnR is such a great game, I continue to maintain its killing my Sterns

Silly question but how do you start Jukebox mode? I can't find instructions here

Menu>Settings>System Settings. Scroll down to sound options. Jukebox mode.

I thought you could turn on JB mode by holding the action & power on? (Or something like that)

I have Convolux in my 2 pins. For GnR I have the Mix Colur Version installed (see photos); generally yellow and on upper pf the green/red ones. Looks pretty nice these plastics protectors.

One tip: If you looking for other colours or maybe a better shipping from Germany to US, please get in touch with https://www.playfield-protectors.com/
In the online shop there are only clear plastics protectors listed, but you can get all colours you like; it´s the same product as Convolux.
Here are the GnR LE complete setup: https://www.playfield-protectors.com/Home/Details/fh4VEypRWkOUBj08VgJYrA?catgoryid=23&name=Guns%20N%27%20Roses%20%28Limited%20Edition%29%20%7C%202020%20%7C%20Plastic%20Protectors

Again, while these look nice, they don’t provide any protection. Can you show a closeup cuz I’m not seeing any overlap. Here is an example of good overlap. That extra amount takes the hit instead of the original plastic. If the plastic is an exact cutout of the original it’s going to share the hit and take damage

I believe you just hold the action button for a few seconds to start it, or to stop it.

I’m sure it’s been ask but what happens when you do a full install of a JJP game on the wrong game ?
Like GNR installed on Dialed in ?

no idea to be honest and i for one am not gonna test it.

Quoted from Wariodolby:

The logical answer would be a bootup code/machine validation and if fails, it doesnt load, requiring you to re-install the correct image.
Is there a prevention for actually performing GNR on DialedIn ISO install? Like a checksum? maybe, but maybe not since its an .ISO - this I do not know for sure. Only the proper code on the proper machine will actually run, that I am sure of.

Quoted from Wariodolby:

Unlikely to be even possible, there's a security dongle on the PC. I do not advise trying.

#16578 45 days ago
Quoted from Vespula:

only 12 days to my door, from where I thought on ebay indicated from Argentina, and my keychain arrived yesterday.
Looking forward to a pic of yours hawkmoon77 when you get it installed.
The return Address says: Willemstad, Curaçao
Willemstad is the capital city of Curaçao, an island in the southern Caribbean Sea that forms a constituent country of the Kingdom of the Netherlands.
Pretty cool.

Just received my LE after 11 long months and spent the morning setting it up and adding mods I’d been collecting. What an awesome game!!

Anyone else automatically change the song when Coma appears? I hate the objective of that song. My eye is on the third flipper the whole time trying to hit that coma target and then other balls seem to get in the way. Too frustrating to play that song. Any other songs people avoid? And is Coma one of them?

I like that song, the coma target comes off a loose right flipper shot at center spinner too. And the light show is excellent.

I avoid Civil War, it's too damn hard.

My favorite GNR song, and yes one of my least favorite song modes in the game.

I usually avoid the three CD songs, because they suck and hurt my ears and heart. Yet the CD album mode is great.

My favorite song in game right now is November Rain, because the “hit anything” structure fits my chimp-flipping style.

Quoted from c818919taylor:

Welcome!!

Thanks! I started to install cliffys but only did the shooter eject and drain and at the same time corrected position of autoplunger which was being struck by shooter rod. I have to build some confidence to remove upper playfield for the cliffy scoop and to place some PETGs.

#16592 44 days ago
Quoted from daveyvandy:

When November Rain pops up, I groan. Like the song, but it's LOOOOONG. I think I've only finished it once.

But in general I play what I'm given. Songs I don't really like (or didn't, heh) sometimes have great light shows, especially later in the songs.

I'm in the same boat as Vespula. Also, lesson learned

Jack said there were about 3K pre-orders already placed by the time I ordered mine, so I'm anxiously watching the serial numbers creep up toward 3,000.

#16597 44 days ago

FYI for those waiting to combine with an order: Pinball Life has airball shields back in stock again...after the first shipment he was out for a bit while USPS played "surprise vacation" with the restock shipment.

I actually really like the coma mode of alternating shots to the coma target. But it’s my least favorite song to listen to so I hardly play it. I would rather play and listen to this I love.

Civil war is tough. But if you get Tshirt + poster patch set, cradle balls on left flipper while nailing loops with the right, it can be very rewarding. Tough as nails to do, but very fun. Not a very good scoring song, but if you can encore into Estranged, that song can bring in a huge jackpot off an encore.

#16599 44 days ago
Quoted from Blackjacker:

This made me chuckle as it described my flipping style perfectly!

Vespula as an FYI I ordered back in October 16 of 2020 from a distributor and just got mine yesterday. Silver lining: the playfield looks immaculate so yours will also look awesome and one less issue to worry about. Hang in there…

And for anyone on the fence on pinwoofer, I think it is a must have for this pinball! The sound quality it is really night and day plus Dan provides awesome support. I had a few questions while installing it and he was super quick to respond.

#16600 44 days ago

If all goes well tomorrow at the bank, I could very well be the owner of a NIB GNR LE. Fingers crossed.
