Quoted from Rockytop:

Agreed. They are great. Here are some of my lithos. Half of these are done by Arian. [quoted image][quoted image][quoted image][quoted image][quoted image][quoted image]

I want that Slash Hollywood one! Where is the best place to buy these?

#751 1 year ago
Quoted from delt31:

So CEs are being made before LE round two? That’s doesn’t sound right b/c that would mean next LEs in Dec? I was told a few weeks from now for LE.

December is a few weeks from now

If I don't get AFD, UYI 1 or 2 then I'm going to Riot in St Louis

#918 1 year ago

Has anyone added mirror blades to their LE yet? Did they fit or thoughts on those vs custom art blades down the track?

#920 1 year ago
Quoted from bigd1979:

Jjp pins are tight and the thinner the side blades the better

So art blades are the better option? This is my first JJP

#972 1 year ago
Quoted from PtownPin:

Looks awesome...is there enough room to install mirrored game blades? The last several JJP's I've purchased there isn't enough room between the play field and side.

Same question I asked yesterday. I believe not enough room. Artblades like on the CE might be an option

#993 1 year ago

For those using an external Sub. I pulled the sub off my Metallica with the board that was used to plug the sub cord straight in to. Is this the same case here? Can I just plug the board into the machine and then the sub into?

#998 1 year ago
Quoted from RockfordReplay:

There's a GnR on reddit with mirror blades. They look great. I'd like to see printed mirror blades; https://www.reddit.com/r/pinball/comments/j85iys/gnr_le_248_tilt_pinball_bar/
Shrunken image from the source;[quoted image]

Looks nice. Stern Mirror Blades will fit these? I'm thinking black mirror only

#1020 1 year ago
Quoted from kermit24:

I don't think JJP uses Stern cabinets. Isn't it WPC style?

This is my first JJP, can anyone confirm which style mirrors fit?

#1033 1 year ago
Quoted from kermit24:

Cointaker sells JJP specific ones, so guessing there may be a slight difference.

Can't get the Cointaker ones shipped to Australia (unless I want to pay through the nose) so I need an alternative

#1394 1 year ago
Quoted from Aliias:

Anyone have a rubber parts list for this game yet? Would love to have a spare Titan set ready.

The clear rubbers installed on the machine OOB aren't Titans?

#1527 1 year ago
Quoted from Scribbles:

Well, that kind of sucks. That's incentive to not finish the song if you have a high enough jackpot built up. It should auto collect as a bonus for finishing.

Completely agree with this statement. It seems there is no incentive to make it to the end of a song. Though if you scored the jackpot automatically at the end of a song then I would assume all the short songs would get played first

#1544 1 year ago
Quoted from screaminr:

I spoke to the OZ distributor today .
He's about 15 minutes up the road and has a demo I can play . The only problem is , we are still in Lock down but hopefully that will change after Sunday .
If it all looks good I will pull the trigger .
I've missed out on the first batch but the next lot should come around January- February .
That might be for the best , as it will give me time to sell a pin and maybe they will sort out any issues it might have .

Did Paul give you an indication of when he'll get his first batch to send out?

#1746 1 year ago
Quoted from voigtstr:

Also the distributor has said it wont be until December perhaps even January till I get the machine into my garage.

Did you just order today?

Quoted from jandrea95:

I’m probably explaining poorly. Hope this pic helps.
I assume the shot is supposed to follow that yellow line. Mine always gets caught in the pops.

How did you manage to get dimpling on Slash's hat? LOL

#2143 1 year ago

I think you'll find those are only suitable for star posts/plastic posts not the metal ones on GNR

Quoted from Eskaybee:

It’s amazing how much beer helps improve flow!

Drinking beer only leads to this kind of flow for me - what am I doing wrong?

#2584 1 year ago
Quoted from Pinball-Obsessed:

Just made it to that mode tonight on my 3rd game! Had a long lasting multi ball on whatever song I was playing (don’t remember) then the scoop was lit up all red after. Shot the scoop and it started “Shall we play a game” mode. Very, very cool mode! Even more cool I defeated the mode!!! [quoted image]

it says it on your high score - the song was "Better"

#2639 1 year ago
Quoted from screaminr:

Most new games are $2 over here .
I'm not an operator but my theory is ...
You would make more money at $1 a game .
If you change $5 and play a couple of quick games , you're more likely to say fuck it and not play any more .
But the longer you play a game , get the feel of it and learn the shots , chances are , you'll spend the $5 .
If you're in an arcade or barcade or cinema , generally you're filling in time and feel a lot happier pumping in dollar coins than $2 a game , so in the end you'll spend more .

All the places in Brisbane are $1 per game

#2926 1 year ago

I was just informed that we won't see a container of GNR pins in Australia until after February
The wait continues......

#2941 1 year ago
Quoted from Shmilder:

Seriously, from Paul? Dissapointing, only a few days ago he was expecting a container to ship any day.

From Narelle but same place

#3088 1 year ago
Quoted from punkin:

33 games total shipping to Australia on 6th December i heard.
In my limited experience LTG is right and the OS countries are packed and shipped so that people get games at the same time as you guys in the contingent assembly of united states of north America.

If that's the case then I'm not one of the first 33 and I ordered on day 1. I was told February at the earliest by Narelle at Pinball Sales

Are the manuals in full colour throughout? This is my first JJP and I always get the original manual for my games too

#4148 1 year ago
Quoted from Shmilder:

Yes Paul's. No issues anywhere else. P.s also set new gc 8.2mil. So OOo much fun.

Any playfield issues on the one at Pauls? Pooling etc? Being the only one in Australia I'm sure it's had a lot of plays

Quoted from punkin:

I'll be putting one of these on, made by a local bloke and heavy stainless, solid feeling and beautiful.
Not to mention in the covid aware environment, easy to clean and disinfect, unlike the dirty molded heads and stuff.

I have the exact same one from Dave ready to go onto my GNR when it finally gets here

Quoted from Skyemont:

SE’s have been shipping. No more right now. CE’s going on the line now for months.

If CE's are going on the line for months then what happens to LE orders that haven't arrived? Still some day 1 orders not fulfilled

Where did you get the red shooter? The standard is black yes?

#4774 1 year ago
Quoted from kidchrisso:

These are the cherry on the top!
[quoted image][quoted image][quoted image][quoted image][quoted image]

Did you have to pull the playfield out to install them?

#4805 1 year ago
Quoted from Kkoss24:

If it helps I cut a 2x4 and prop the back end of playfield up (to bottom of cabinet )with front on the stands .Everytging is completly out of the way ,easy as throwing a magnet on your refrigerator .

I'm particularly interested in how you do this. I've tried Kidcrisso's method but ruined the decal in the part where the playfield is lifted, not either side of it

#4917 1 year ago
Quoted from PinMonk:

Karl's streaming GnR live again now with a temp probe on the upper right flipper this time and fans installed on the lower flippers and a temp probe on the lower right flipper (that hit 219F without fans last night).

I don't see any GNR video's on this link?

#4919 1 year ago
Quoted from PinMonk:

Live only because if he posts saved videos he gets an automatic DMCA takedown anyway from his friends at twitch due to all the GnR music. So, he just doesn't post them and only does it live. Wonderful world we live in now, eh?

Well that sucks, the time difference here means it's doubtful I'll ever see anything live

#4921 1 year ago
Quoted from PinMonk:

He's usually streaming around 7 or 8pm US time, which is, what, 11am-12pm australia? He usually goes for about 2 hours from what I've seen. Seems like you should have a shot at some of them, especially on a weekend...

No chance during the week, my job is insanely busy everyday. So if he does a Friday or Saturday stream then possibly, otherwise I'll watch IE Youtube until they are forcibly pulled down too

#5095 1 year ago
Quoted from punkin:

For all the guys that were complaining that the export LE's left before you got your CE's, let it be known that the ship to the land of Aus is still on the water for at least 9 more days.
I'm happy for you that you got your CE's though.

And that only 30 of us are getting an LE from that ship

Will 3 GnR Pins be too greedy?

Why do you even have 2? This isn't NBA Fastbreak

#5601 1 year ago
Quoted from Audioenslaved:

The increase is hitting Australia. The Le was $15,500 is not $17k!!

Still says $15,490 on the Pinball Sales site unless I'm missing something. I also assume us who ordered in the first few days will get the original price in Australia

Do you have black mirror blades ?

KJS Pinball in Brisbane has black mirror blades

#5800 1 year ago
Quoted from PinMonk:

Upper right default used to be 18.
Upper Playfield was 10.
Karl's streaming jjGnR again right now with 1.13 and the temp gauges on screen for the coils. He's going for the wizard mode tonight.
EDIT: He made it to the wizard mode and has 5 balls left to do it again. Wizard mode is definitely in the game and quite different from other ones. Uses all the buttons.
[quoted image]
Almost 100 million jackpot tonight:
[quoted image]

For those that saw the Wizard mode, it was way too cool. At times the action button was your flipper button, then the flipper would switch, then the action button was left flipper only and others. I loved it though it doesn't look like it was high scoring. Karl did mention that he believed good album mode scoring would lead to a better scoring wizard. Not sure that is achieved when Desert Demolition doesn't do anything except 500k a shot I believe

Quoted from PoMC:

Kept on going and made a shooter rod housing decal too. [quoted image][quoted image][quoted image][quoted image]

I like what you're trying to achieve so no offense but why would you make an appetite logo that's cut off at the bottom & not to scale and fit it within the shooter housing? Unless I'm missing something here?

#6279 1 year ago
Quoted from punkin:

Love these shooter rods, i'll have to buy another batch as i only have one left now and got a Theatre of Magic last night that needs it.
So much better in the hand than a plastic knob.
[quoted image]

I have one of these waiting for my machine to arrive....whenever that may be

#6361 1 year ago
Quoted from DrJoe:

I believe the higher the flipper setting, the faster they will heat up to the point of fading power.

I don’t mind the Spaghetti Incident either but why the decal without songs represented in the game. Did they play songs from it on the NITL tour?

Yes they did, New Rose sung regularly by Duff

#7255 1 year ago
Quoted from pinballaddicted:

Ha ha... you make me laugh. I did not mean any offence.
We have bets on when people are going to get their games in OZ. I think the next container to Australia will not leave until late April or early May. We are number 350's (I cannot remember exactly) in Australia for a LE so I think we are not going to get our game until the end of 2022. The only way I think we are getting it earlier is if people bail out.
The reason JJP do not want their manufacturing schedule public is because people will bail out of their orders if they realize how long they have to wait for their machine. Does not bother us how long it takes to get here.

You mean the end of 2021 right? If it's 2022 I may as well buy something else to play in the meantime and then sell it once I'm asked to cough up the remainder rather than just have 14K sitting in the bank waiting......

#7261 1 year ago
Quoted from pinballaddicted:

No I mean the end of 2022 for us, hopefully earlier but I doubt it. We were hanging out to get a CE. That is not happening now so we ordered a LE a few weeks ago. 66 games fit in a big container so by my reasoning we are on container 6 or 7 (small containers are coming in as well). In Australia we have had 1 small container arrive in 4 months.. I am sure you can work out the rest.
Find out where in the list (Wayne at Mr Pinball can tell you) you are and you can work out approx when your game will be made. I am thinking they are making approx 50 games per week. You can work it out if you add up all the models and JJP build their games in serial number order. This could change as they may go faster or slower, this we will never work out. It is nice that pinsiders are posting their serial numbers, you can see how many games have been shipped.
I am fairly confident Stern will release 6 games before we get our Gunners! I think CGC will release at least 2 plus all the other guys. No way we are waiting for one game. If we like the next Stern, we are in!
You do not want to be an early adopter with JJP games. Always better to wait so they iron out their bugs. We would have sat the CE in the garage untouched for a while to make sure there are no major issues. Just my opinion.

How would Wayne know when Mr Pinball isn't the JJP distributor? I did order on day 1 and agree with potentially 30 arriving at a time we are in for a long wait. I think I'll buy another machine to play for a while and then sell it to pay for this (probably for a profit too lol)

Try being in Australia - nearly all of us put a deposit down on day 1 or 2 (all of us being 200+) and yet only 25 machines are in the country, all LE's

I'm trying to find the best black mirror blades in Oz . If anyone has any suggestions I would love to know .

Have you tried Kurt at KJS Pinball in Brisbane?

Quoted from blkspiderman:

So Excited!!! Sometimes the diverter coil has a burning smell and turns brown, We're in for the diverter fan!! Thanks again for all you do!!

Pretty sure the fans only do the 3 main flippers, not the diverter coils

#10188 1 year ago
Quoted from punkin:

In development, see a couple of posts back.

Yep I'm a moron which is why I drained it fast - not fast enough apparently lol

#10489 1 year ago

I'm a bit confused about the washer situation as there seems to be so many options now.
Can someone please rank these in order of best solution to worst and and experience you've had post installment (how many plays post operation)

PETG washers
Titan Silicone washers
Cliffy Carbon Fibre washers
JJP Issued washers
Mylar Circles
Post sized washers

I have a spare if you're interested

#12633 11 months ago
Quoted from cooked71:

Amazing how many different opinions we have on this issue.
Have you seen examples of Silicone washers doing ripping up art? I personally haven’t.
Also, Mylar is great if the clear is not already damaged - and that was always its purpose. But I still question putting it over already damaged clear/art - it will likely rip up the art when removed.
Personally I think Mylar (if no damage), then silicone is the best solution.
Not arguing, just my opinion also and will keep a track on my silicone washers over time and report back. Happy to be wrong if there’s a better solution.

best place to get appropiate mylar?

Finally getting mine delivered in the next week. Does anyone have the dimensions of the box it comes in? Need to judge whether I need to inbox it outside or it’ll fit through my doorway

#13886 10 months ago
Quoted from LTG:

About 32 inches by 32 inches by 60 inches.
LTG : )

Thank you, outside it is

#13992 10 months ago
Quoted from Chambo:

I was a day one order and my LE finally arrived last night!
That said, I am in Australia, and we have had some shipping problems…

I'm also a day 1 order in Brisbane and told mine will get here tomorrow!
Then I'll spend the weekend bullet proofing it with cliffy's carbon fibre, protectors and washers

#14040 10 months ago

After a long wait it’s finally here!
Manufacturing date May 2021

#14062 10 months ago

Well a couple of disappointing things right out of the box
Bit of bubbling on the cabinet decal next to the hinge
A broken bit of plastic at the duff ramp
And somehow there is a fly alive and flying around inside the playfield lol

#14071 10 months ago

Well if you hear of a new strain of Covid then I’m probably to blame, didn’t see him fly away from the machine but it’s in Brisbane somewhere lol

#14075 10 months ago

Okay about the start protecting the playfield. Cliffy shooter lane protector is in. I’m scared as hell to put the cliffy on the centre scoop but it has to be done.
I know some of the posts that need washers and cliffy carbon fibre but does anyone have a diagram of all posts that need it? I saw a post here but it’s not key posted and I have pooling around some posts straight out of the box

#14110 10 months ago
Quoted from Ecw0930:

I also did it on the yellow ones here as well. My AXL lanes were starting to show signs so I did them as well. And a few more at the bottom with high velocity impacts and traffic.
[quoted image]

Would you still put them under the slings if the black washers are there or do those existing washers do the trick?

#14124 10 months ago

I’m one of the Aussies in the latest container and I can vouch on 2 accounts
#1 My machine arrived with damage on the decal around the hinge, a broken plastic and also wouldn’t even work when I first turned it on
#2 Paul was very helpful in getting the computer rebooted through an unconventional method and my machine started
No one explained how a fly got into the pinball and survived the trip - where was the QC there

#14142 10 months ago
Quoted from Audioenslaved:

It’s a bit rough that you’ve got to do all this work to make sure the playfield doesn’t bork out after 50 plays when this should’ve been done at factory. I want to play a machine not take it apart before I can play it.
And let’s not mention the fact that they’re more expensive than a small car with a warranty that you may as well use as toilet paper but in saying that you’d probably tear your ass open with it if you indeed used it as tp…

I agree with you as I just spent hours installing cliffy’s, putting carbon fibre rings and Petg posts under ever potential problem post. Brand new game and I turn it on to find….. no signal on the screen after hot rails worked for 2 secs. Nothing else works WTF

#14146 10 months ago
Quoted from PinMonk:

Check your USB connectors at the computer enclosure in the backbox.

Pulled out every connector and put back in. Fans come on and led strip in the backbox and that’s it. I reckon PC is dead. Had the machine 2 days and haven’t been able to play it yet

#14149 10 months ago
Quoted from PinMonk:

Are all the red lights lit on the big circuit board below the computer motherboard in the big metal box?

All the red lights next to the fuses are on and the one under the little USB on the right

#14151 10 months ago
Quoted from PinMonk:

I'd try kickstarting the computer motherboard. Can you take a picture or two of it so I can see which one you have in yours. It could be any one of 3 or 4 JJP has used.

Does that help?

Quoted from PinMonk:

Yes. That's the ASROCK 310C.
Short the two green-highlighted pins on the header pin pad below that say "power" with a paperclip (or if you have it, a jumper).
[quoted image]

With the machine on? What is the bottom green arrow mean?

#14154 10 months ago

With the machine on I assume?

#14156 10 months ago

Absolutely nothing.
Also did the trick in the video with the 3rd and 4th pin from the right and nothing there either

#14158 10 months ago

Oh okay I did the cmos thing with it on. Hang on

#14161 10 months ago

Not exciting lol
And I did hold it a few seconds then turned on and shortened the power pins.
Nothing except the fans are on

#14163 10 months ago
Quoted from PinMonk:

The CPU cooling fan on the motherboard is on?

Both the one on the board and the one on the left

#14165 10 months ago
Quoted from PinMonk:

If the motherboard CPU fan is spinning and there's no beeping happening at post when it was powered on, it should be running and may just be stopped at a system message. Is the main screen hooked to the computer with HDMI or DVI? If it's hdmi, try reversing the cable (or try a different one if you have on on hand from another TV).
Do you have a USB keyboard handy? If so, plug it into the motherboard and reboot.

I would only have a old hdmi and do have a USB keyboard. If there’s no message on the screen how is the keyboard going to help? Sorry if that’s a stupid question and thanks for persevering with me it’s appreciated

#14166 10 months ago

Cant reverse the HDMI the other end is a VGA cable attachment

#14169 10 months ago
Quoted from PinMonk:

Wait, so the HDMI cable is converted into a VGA connector that is plugged into the monitor?

The end in the monitor is hdmi, the other end that plugs into the PC is VGA. 1 cable

#14171 10 months ago
Quoted from PinMonk:

And it's wired end-to-end, not an HDMI connector in a VGA adapter on the computer end?

Nope I single cable

Hats off to you PIN Monk , you did a great job .

Absolutely brilliant I can’t thank you enough

#14191 10 months ago

Yea I will anyway but Pinmonk being such a great bloke seals the deal.
After a couple of terrible scoring games I’ve noticed 2 things
Left flipper sticks in the up position regularly and the left spike on the ball lock guitar is stuck down
Might be an adjustment on the flipper switch
And also wow what a rush! I couldn’t enjoy the light show because I was concentrating on all the shots lol

Quoted from Gear_Grinder:

Did the britebuttons have anything to do with the problems you were having?

I thought so but no they are plugged seperate

#14242 10 months ago

For those that are unboxing this week. I would recommend getting PETG washers under EVERY SINGLE POST you can. Particularly any post with a hex base on the bottom.
I missed the post next to the pyro target and it looks like this after 4 games. Yes 4

#14270 10 months ago

Finally put up a 30 million score today. Quick question about the selfie photo at the end. Can it be seen next to the high score list?
It seems the photo is taken and you never see it again?

#14275 10 months ago
Quoted from greeneye:

So how many hours have each GnR owner put in switching out washers and/or posts? I did another 2 hours last night after seeing some minor pooling. Even on posts I previously did. It’s almost completely the long hex posts but I’m noticing some minor pooling near the thicker posts now too. I skipped those for now. I changed out the washer on the bottom of the left ramp and it was completely bent in half.

4-6 hours roughly inc cliffy protectors. Some of the non hex posts you should do (do all hex posts) are:
Post next the the coma target on the inner loops cops a pounding
All posts in the 3 AXL lane guides at the top
Posts above the left coma out lane
Posts below the right upper flipper where the ball launch exit is
Lastly the posts above the right out lane

After having a bunch of games now I have a couple of questions:
#1 how much song value do you lose if you decide to choose a different song to play?
#2 What does band frenzy do?

#14354 10 months ago
Quoted from sevenrites:

#1, I think they changed the code so instead of losing value you stay where you are but if you keep the song that’s presented as opposed to choosing one, I think you get around +15 roughly. I think I saw it here somewhere.
#2, band frenzy, you can really boost your song jackpot by hitting the pops. There’s more to it than that.
ZaphX has explained both of these better in previous posts I believe. I’d have to look and see if there’s some key posts. I think it’s difficult to compile all the various info about strategy when it’s intermixed with all the other posts but maybe a few of us can come up with something or make a thread about scoring and strategy only? It seems necessary with how deep this game can be, the risk/reward and all the other elements that come into play for scoring.

Yea totally agree, with nearly 300 pages it’s very hard to find posts about how scoring works or how to boost scoring in general.

#14458 10 months ago

I’m looking for the mod decal that sits on the left drum symbol. I think it’s the brand name of the drums? Where can I get one?

#14561 10 months ago

My god I love this game! Just had my best score of 52M and I had the chance to cash in November Rain for 14M, got the jackpot to 22M and lost it. It’s such a rush
Once you protect the posts in this game play the living daylights out of it because it’s brilliant!

#14593 10 months ago
Quoted from Boof-Ed:

I only passed at about 40 as I had more than one ball in play most other times. I had the song level maxed and a heap of patches, some collected without knowing which ones I had. The switch hits needed were getting right up there I remember seeing 1200 at some point.
I think I’m a greedy player as I’ve blown a lot of 100 + jackpots. You think I’d learn but this is what keeps me pressing start too.
I did end up collecting a 150 on patience though and it stands out on my jackpot list as most good ones are blown. One day I’ll learn to cash out earlier. [quoted image]

That’s insane, I only have 3 jackpots in double figures and I cashed out each time. Most of the time my song value is around 70 but the only ways I’ve figured it improves is by locking more balls or getting more jackpots in the boosters. I don’t even know what the jackpots are in half the boosters either. Very little info is given from what I can see

Quoted from shokel328:

Here is what im up against
[quoted image][quoted image]

I didn't bother with mine, very unlikely that part will damage over time IMO and you have to remove the entire hotrail to have a couple of millimetres showing of the protector

Is there video of this 900 million point game that Karl had? Be interested in seeing that, not to compare, my best is 52 million lol

#15325 9 months ago

For all you Scorbit users I just downloaded the app and have no idea how to use it, register my best scores etc. Anyone have any pointers?

#15404 9 months ago
Quoted from etr104:

When starting a song, is there any advantage / disadvantage to just accepting and playing the song that they give you rather than pressing the action button to pick a song of your own choice? I know obviously some songs are easier and some are more difficult, but with all other things equal, is it best to just play the song that the game gives you?

Supposedly the song value is 15 points higher if you stick with the selected song. I haven't see proof of this though as you don't see your song value until it starts

Hi all
This is the first time I’ll be doing an update since getting my machine so apologies if it’s a stupid question
Do your high scores stay when you update or do they erase?

#16117 8 months ago
Quoted from RA77:

Without wanting to be negative, Slash solo is the most underwhelming mode for me so far.
I find all other modes to be amazing
So many cool modes
Now if I could just play better
[quoted image][quoted image]

Could be worse lol, I've played over 100 games on mine and yet to reach Tour Multiball or Slash Solo.
I must suck really bad

#16190 8 months ago

I actually like the daily high scores for 2 reasons
#1 My 6 year old daughter gets her photo taken everyday as she'll never score an actual high score (not yet anyway)
#2 My friends can see who gets the best score when they come over as they also aren't good enough to score an actual score. I have 21 machines and nobody has their initials on them besides me so GNR is a hit that way

#16326 8 months ago

I don’t want anyone on Scorbit to see my scores. The scores you all are sharing here are quite frankly intimidating.
I only have 2 scores above 10 million …..and that was before I installed Scorbit

#16560 8 months ago

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

#17082 8 months ago

Was there a post about what to adjust exactly in regards to the loops being dialed in? I missed the "how to" section

#17233 8 months ago
Quoted from glpinball:

Get a score. Save it to the leader board. Click on plus person or something like that and add someone In search. Seems like tagging more than one person doesn't work.

The plus person doesn't even appear for me - the Scorbit app is very cumbersome

#17296 8 months ago
Quoted from Pinlokio:

Snap a pic next time! I definitely have a few "keepers" that didn't make it into Scorbit.
I tagged more than one person for that score, so I wonder if that was the issue. I've been tagged to beat a few scores, but there was no way to accept the challenge. Still trying to figure it all out.
I finally received my first official challenge, but not from someone I've already followed. I'll try to take it on tonight or tomorrow.

I had the same problem and I beat the challenge score too. The challenge score was 20M and I've only ever topped that 3 times so not being able to share that on Scorbit was a bummer
On another note I've been able to do a 6 ball power chord on 2 of my last 3 songs, instant 5.5M that apparently counts as part of the song score. Much easier than trying to get a jackpot worth that much lol

#17305 8 months ago

I've started following a couple of local Aussies on Scorbit, If you want to follow me I'm TEZ (didn't know which was the initials on the game & which was username lol)
Let the mere mortal scoring begin!

I watched Eric's Guns N Roses overview seminar from Pintastic online this morning (Twitch). Was really great and informative talking about how the game was made, artwork code, Easter eggs etc. Hopefully the video goes up online later. Definitely worth a watch if you missed it.

I'd love to watch this being in Australia I can't get to pintastic. Please post a link when it's available

Is it normal that I have to short the power between the 3rd and 4th pins on the backbox connector to get my machine to turn on? It needed that right out of the box and I'm doing that at least once a month because my machine doesn't fire up

Quoted from atg1469:

I too do not have any friends on Scorebit yet, so I'd love to jump on the challenge bandwagon! Similarly to HornerSyndrome, I don't get to play as often as I'd like but if anyone is up for some friendly action shoot "ballsofsteel" a challenge request!

I don't know many people either so just followed both yourself and hornersyndrome. I'm plain old TEZ

Quoted from HornerSyndrome:

I’ve had the game about a month now but have a couple of rule questions I can’t find / figure out.
1. What does the “fog” insert do in the upper playfield?
2. What is the single / double / triple jackpots for AMP MB? Hurry up shots but what determines JP?
3. What about Lights multiball? Shoot Ramps but what is the JP? Center scoop?
4. Pyro is easy - switch frenzy and then action button.
5. Crowd is two random lit shots then under the flipper for JP but what determines size of JP?
6. What determines the JP size for power chord? Tilt forums rules say it’s a set number but mine is variable.

I've had my machine since August and don't know the answers to your questions either -I'm now curious too......

#18640 6 months ago
Quoted from Eskaybee:

Classic! That song is actually growing on me. Dig Slash’s guitar solo.

Hate to burst your bubble but the studio version you hear of this song doesn't have Slash or Duff playing on it as they weren't part of the Chinese Democracy album

Edit: I’m too slow catching up on the thread, already several posts - oops!
So to confirm no Slash or Duff on any Chinese Democracy song as you hear it

#18642 6 months ago
Quoted from Eskaybee:

Got it. Still a sweet solo.

Chinese Democracy isn’t a bad album at all even though it gets crapped on a lot.

My top 2 fuses in the main board in the backbox aren’t lighted with a red button beside them like all of the others.
I can’t seem to find it anywhere, what type of fuses do I need to buy to replace them?

#18803 6 months ago

I can only get scores of 7-8 million so these album modes scores I see here are mind blowing where I'm lucky to get 100K on an album mode.
What am I doing wrong that I suck this bad?
I do the normal Fender patch and then go some combo of Gun, Shirt/Poster, Thunderchuck, Vader/Duff before starting a song. Still get max of 5 million cashout on songs
Yes I try to play the booster multiballs as well.
Is there a patch combo that works better for crap players like me that gives me a chance to score 10-15 million?

#18828 6 months ago
Quoted from Vespula:

Whoa my heart is racing...
Live And let die, applause jackpot, November rain encore, like four extra balls, I think, cuz all I know is when I finally drained I still had three balls left. Started the next round with over 4 million, got to the point where this I love was the song selected and I rocked it out with a 5.1 million song jackpot.. played with tons of balls the whole song, seems to last forever, I knew I was getting to the end I kept shooting for the center scoop finally I saw the screen change nailed the center scoop and claimed the jackpot for a final score And almost double my old GC scoring... 12,121,853 !
I also played a demolition derby and shall we play a game somewhere in all that... Going downstairs to cool off So pinmonks fans can Cool off my flippers. [quoted image]

Congrats on your GC score! There’s my point earlier though, you did all that for 12 million yet others do similar and score 200 million, I don’t get it….
On another note what did you do to light up around the edges of the translite? I see shadow from the screen there too

#18918 6 months ago

I have the Sven speaker kit installed on my game and every single time I hit the upper vuk the ball gets stuck between the diverter and the bottom of the amp piece

I also raised the flippers by +2 and got 3 million as apposed to my normal score of 1 million. This game is bloody hard. I get to 1 song a game and don't last much longer than 3 minutes in it. I get cheap drains down the outlanes every game. Before I know it, it's last ball
