Never said it wasn't a good pin. Im sure its great. That response was for Nicoy. Enjoy your playing your GnR.

Sorry about the misunderstanding, appreciate the courtesy flush

Absolutely.. maybe poo-puri. Lol. I was crazy excited about the LE but opted to wait to get my hands on one. Honestly I have never been more excited about a new pin. I drive my wife crazy watching reveals and gameplay. Will definitely want to snag one. I think all three are killer...

#2353 1 year ago

When playing other games I have to constantly convince myself its OK to cradle the ball during modes and multiballs

You have the right mindset in waiting. With thousands of these being made u know darn well there will be several nice HUO on the market. That way u can probably save some $ and inspect the game prior to purchase.

Hi all. On the subject of external subwoofers, can someone in the know tell me if these speaker inputs are a high level input and will work with Tha alligator clip mod from the cab speaker? Thanks

That sub has both high and low level inputs. Yes, alligator clips will work. Run the wire to the red/black tabs that are labeled speaker input. Jumper the wire over to both reds and both blacks

Awesome Thanks. Is the jumper necessary? Will it change the sound quality or power. Was thinking of hooking up two seperate machines as some people have done.

I'd jumper it. May be 2 voice coils on the sub inside.

Quoted from SpinnerAddict:

I see a lot of people complaining about plunges draining, I'm 50 games in on a SE and have not had a single plunge drain yet. 6.5 pitch and level seems to work for me.

Do you have pics and are you happy with the SE?

#2361 1 year ago
Quoted from Shmilder:

No. Should sound fine with using only one set of inputs.

I’m happy with the SE. plays fast with nice flow. No complaints so far

Quoted from konghusker:

Owning both AC/DC and Metallica for several years, I still haven’t tired of the same songs over and over again, or the game play of either. GNR is my favorite band and with twice as many songs as the other games I own, I don’t see getting tired of it. Not to mention it’s much deeper with more variety than the other games. AC/DC and Metallica are my 2nd& 3rd favorite bands btw so yes, being a big fan is definitely helpful when owning a music pin.

Yeah..... GnR will complete my line up.
I’m huge lover of rock / metal, my older pins aren’t going anywhere.... still love Luci, Met, IMDN + Kiss
If I had room ... would have snuck an Aerosmith in as well.....alas can’t have them all

#2364 1 year ago

Maybe it’s because of all the AFM I have played but I don’t think the SE plays THAT fast. Don’t get me wrong it’s not a slow game by any means but flowy I think is a better description.

The orbits are super long and smooth and the right ramp is way in the back and has a very long return. Plus two of your center shots slow things down with the scoop and shot into the bumpers.

Overall the way this shoots has been the biggest surprise to me. It’s an very fun flowy shooter. The orbits are butter and both ramps are very hittable on the fly. The center loop is repeatable- I get three consecutive almost every game. There is almost an EM feel, if almost looks a little like one.

BTW I am certainly what you would call an average player, though I try.

Haha I think it’s just the flatness of the middle of the PF, EM probably isn't the right term, just more a classic single level LOOK. I think it’s a good thing

Could you post a link for the mod? I didn’t see/couldn’t find the mod here on pinside. Thanks

#2369 1 year ago

Can anyone share their adjustments? I have tried up/down, keep finding this nice parking spot under the ball....

Does that happen often? Seems against the laws of physics

Download the PinGuy app to make sure you are at 6.5 or more, those bubbles are not to be trusted

#2372 1 year ago

Did you buy the full white or RGB? I would think that RGB lights would wash the color of the translite. Does anyone have any insight on this?

Thanks will try the app out! This has happened a handful of times to me, almost like there is a magnet there. Usually the machine will register and kick out a new ball that I can knock it down with.

I second this! Pinguy app over the level in the machine. Also helps with side-to-side leveling.

RGB

#2376 1 year ago

Anyone else had issues with balls from the scoop will drain down the middle after 50 plays? I tried adjusting the vuk diverter and increased coil power plus lifted the right leg leveler but its hitting the bottom 10% of the left flipper instead of the middle.

#2377 1 year ago

Also inspect the balls that come with the game. This one had a major flat spot

My GnR box came from the States yesterday.

Unfortunately it was too small to contain a pinball machine, but still full of GnR love from Pinwoofer.

Thanks Dan, so fast.

Hell yes!! Let us know how it sounds when you get the machine to go with it!!

#2380 1 year ago

I ordered the pin woofer just now. I am not particularly impressed with the sound quality so I think this will be a nice upgrade.

You might want to straighten the wire arm on your shooter lane switch.

I haven't heard any. Maybe a drop of oil or super lube on the spinner arms where they go into the holder.

Quoted from Propsnsports:

Something to look at. My machine is an LE, and the left spinner was fine, but the center spinner was "sticky". It didn't spin like it should, and sometimes would get stuck in the horizontal position allowing balls to pass under it unnoticed. After closer inspection I noticed the spinner bracket is mounted by 1 bolt on the left side. Right side is free hanging, not bolted at all. The spinner bracket itself was bent so the right side was a hair higher than the left, causing the spinner to get hung up a bit. All I did was bend the bracket down on the right to make it even, and bingo!! Spins like a maniac now. I'm not sure if thats your issue, but maybe this will help someone.

#2386 1 year ago

Sweet!
I have a Pinwoofer kit set to be delivered Monday for my (hopefully soon!) LE arriving start of December...!?

So I just unboxed my SE and JJP sent me the wrong power cord. I have plenty of computer power cords but want to make sure my game is wired for 120V and not 240V before I plug it in. Sticker says it's 120V and power block inside has the proper outlet so I should be good correct?

LTG : )

no the spinner ends up angled so they block the ball from moving also the chase ball logic shouldn't end the ball if a stuck ball becomes unstuck.

#2391 1 year ago

So it looks like the SE are available now. When will the LE be available again?

You in on LE or CE?

#2393 1 year ago

I highly suggest checking all bolts, nuts and screws for tightness on game before playing out of box, my upper right flipper coil just fell off while playing a game. Both bolts were loose on right flipper, one of the pops had a loose nut and right backbox hinge bolt nut not fully seated. Game would reset after I put everything back together when pushing start button, did a factory reset and it's fine now.

Do you have the game already ? I’m in northborough but I was told April as an estimate.

#2395 1 year ago
Quoted from Scribbles:

My machine is tight with no blades. Not tight as in difficult to lift, but very little wiggle room.

Thought about using felt tape along the playfield edges? (And I guess on the sides of the Ho Trails or anything else that might be pushed out to the edge of the playfield, if there is anything.)

I guess by design the felt tape itself takes up some of that available space, but I’m curious if there’d be room for that along with black mirror blades.

#2396 1 year ago

Having reset issues when I press start. Game was fine until upper right flipper coil fell off while playing. I can do a factory reset and game will start but when I go to change any settings it does a reset when I hit the start button. I double checked underneath the game for anything that may have came loose, could the software have become corrupted somehow?

No loss in re-installing 1.07. Rewrite the drive with a full install. ENABLE the CAMERA in settings YOU MUST DO THIS or it can loop there is a bug.
