I just joined the club! What do people do to brighten up the upper playfield?
I just joined the club and what's the easiest way to fix this switch? It seems like about 1/3 of the time the ball will jump over the switch. The switch works perfectly. I had a similar issue with White Water and I had my friend make me a plastic that went over top of a ramp to keep the ball down. I just didn't know what most people do for this switch?
Quoted from rotordave:
Right! I had a few PMs a few weeks back about how I was going to fix my lower right ramp switch so it actually registers EVERY time the ball is shot up there. You may remember I shot a video showing the ball jumping the standard switch.
So let’s make one!
This has been done many times before ... it’s the best way to go IMO.
I made mine out of 3mm high impact acrylic. But you could use aluminium or metal.
I machined the acrylic down to approx 100mm long x 30mm wide.
I marked out where the vertical support was on the wire form, and filed out a small groove to fit around it.
I drilled the holes for the switch and mounted it to the acrylic. I just used the long lever switch that I had on the machine, but the standard switch would also work fine. I used the standard switch screws and mounting plate.
At the other end, I used 2x machine screws, washers and lock nuts. I had to drill out the mount a little as these were the smallest screws I had on hand. Smaller diameter machine screws/bolts would be better.
I bent the switch lever to suit, so it always registers, but a slow ball doesn’t get stalled on it.
Works like a champion. Registers every single time. SUPER VENGEANCE!
Great work ROTO, do you happen to have the dimensions of it?
I'm wondering if anybody has this same issue, after the balls are locked in the sanctum area and are released if I don't hit the ball with my upper flipper 90% of the time they will go straight down the middle, are there any adjustments for this? I have my game set fairly steep so it plays fast but just wondering what others are doing
