Quoted from zaphX:

They come in two sizes of which would work fine on the metal posts. However, they specifically state the washers are not designed for this.
Probably because the metal-on-silicone might wear faster, I dunno.

I may shoot Titan an email and ask them about the reasoning behind that. Still seems like it may be worth a shot.

Hey owners,

Does your mini playfield flipper line up with the cut out for the mini flipper or is it off a little like mine???

Mine lines up pretty evenly

#2154 1 year ago
Quoted from dannunz:

In order to get ahead of any issues with pooling. When I get my LE am I crazy to pull apart the game and put better rubber washers and metal washers in place before even playing one game?
Just wondering if any of you NIB buyers are doing anything to prevent issues. I herd pooling if it happens starts after 30 plus games.

Personally I would not do anything to alter the assembly on the game unless you see an issue. IF you alter the game it’s possible you could create damage or be denied warranty if they suspect it was your action. Just my opinion.

You probably want to loosen the pawl a tiny bit and move it and retighten the pawl.

JJP games have a computer with one of those coin batteries. I think they recommend every 3 years.

My Hobbit is over due and apparently it can be a bit tricky to do , if it's not done right .I heard you can wipe the whole thing , and have to reinstall everything .
I don't know if that's correct but it would be good if there was another way where you don't need batteries , one less thing to worry about .
Is it true , you can stuff things up if it goes flat or you install it incorrectly .

No just carefully do it with the power on and you won't even lose BIOS settings. You cannot wipe the hard drive. I will send you the snip from the manual

#2169 1 year ago
Quoted from John_I:

These are handy to protect the blades. Never tried them on JJP but it says they work on WPC type cabinets, so the should work.
https://www.pinballlife.com/interior-cabinet-protector-blade-set.html

Recommend these being the first additional purchase when buying any pinball machine. Mandatory for JJP titles because their cabinet/playfield tolerances are tight.
There's no taking it back if you scratch those sides. Maybe contact JJP to see if they sell them. There was a set included in the box when I opened my WWCE.
The rear left side of my gobstopper ramp is literally resting on the side art blade. Doesn't bother me because I have a set of these. They will move around as you are lifting because the playfield is contacting them with pressure. No sweat, take your time slide them back into position and continue lifting.

No and it’s a 3volt battery very common at staples etc.

Ok I just bought a HOU DI made in Dec 2017- would you swap it?

#2172 1 year ago
Quoted from nicoy3k:

You could read it with a meter first to see. Red lead in vdc, black lead in common. Red lead on top of battery (leave it in the holder), black lead on ground. When new they are 3.2 - 3.3, if it falls below 2.9 I'd swap it.

#2173 1 year ago

If it makes anyone feel better -- I'm maybe 125 + games into my LE (I've had it for less than 2 weeks) - and so far the playfield looks fantastic - no pooling, no chips, a fraction of the dimples that my Monster Bash LE had in it's first week - with fewer games (not a knock against Chicago - I love that machine too!)

I can't imagine I'm in the minority on a quality playfield.

I'm spectulating there may have been a small batch perhaps not cured properly? But I wouldn't worry about it guys - just enjoy it when you get it (or just cancel your order, or give your place up to someone who wants the LE now.)

You'll be so busy being dazzled by the sheer technical achievement this machine represents for JJP - you'll not worry about all the minor imperfections if yours has any.

Is there any info around on what the process is to restore the bios settings? I don't have an issue, but good to know if it ever happens.

Quoted from Lermods:

Plug in a USB keyboard and go in - the only thing really important in most cases is the "power on after power fail" that needs to be set to yes or enabled or whatever. Because the thing never shuts down formally, it has to tell itself to start when it is powered up.

#2176 1 year ago

just got my game, are the flippers supposed to point up a little or should they be flish with the lane guides? What incline do you guys recommend? 6.5?

#2177 1 year ago
Quoted from nicoy3k:

I like flush with the lane guides. Set them how you like. Play some games and see if you like how it plays where they are at.

Quoted from nicoy3k:

I'd go with that. Then more or less as you experience the game play, set to your liking.

I got my LE plate - it was accidently taken back by my distributor on the box. #136.

Everything seems to works great out of box. Although flipper buttons literally just fell out, no screws to secure? Also this weird black matt was inside the cabinet. Oops.

Forgotten to be removed during manufacturing. Lays on playfield to protect it when things are being assembled.

No sheet metal nuts laying inside the cabinet that holds them down ?

That mat is used to place tools on while the game is running down the line so they don't scratch the playfield

Very odd in deed granted not a major fix. Mine not only had the stamped nut holding it but also a hex head wood screw to lock that nut in place to keep it from ever coming off. Hope you get it fixed quick.

Maybe Slash built that one? It's even more valuable now!

Mine is even with the guide. Sorry, LTG only has the support images We provide him lol.

Quoted from Scribbles:

Not always. The assembly line workers are most likely not pinball enthusiasts and are human and can miss a step. And a flipper button pawl nut would be easy to miss on final inspection with the leaf blade switches in the way and you can't see the pawl nut too good. And when the flipper button is first pushed in, it kind of sticks there.

adamross if your are missing the two screws and pawl nuts. Please send Pinballomatic a PM and he can fix you up.

Agreed, I saw a video of Sterns facility, and those folks definitely were NOT pinball enthusiasts I'd bet. I was more referring to the mat left in the cabinet, and both flipper buttons missing their retainers though. I'm not being critical, it was a missed shot at humor. I've had those days for certain.
