Bummer Todd. Sounds like your group should’ve played better.

Can't play what you can't see. Try again.

#5752 1 year ago

ive been told im in first run of premiums and all ive given is 500 so far

#5753 1 year ago

IMHO request for full pay should only be for LE/CE models.
$300-$1000 deposits are adequate for others.

Now of the defense for distro's at this time, is the manufactures receiving parts especially PC's. I have 3-month B/O's on Cisco, cameras, and have been waiting for my new laptop since February.

Anything with chips and/or electronics has been effected

They have to make the LE's first and then the premiums.

Not sure the pinstadiums are necessary on this game, or on any game for that matter.

It was a joke. But seriously, not one single mod is necessary. Are they cool? Fuck yeah. But never necessary in any game.

Unless the game design is flawed is some way, but I take your point - this logic would also have saved me a tonne of money!

The inevitable metal ramp mod for the pro would like to have a word with you, lol.

Yeah cause the game doesn’t work with the plastic ramps. Haha

Quoted from KozMckPinball:

I’ve played lots of GBs that never had these mods. The game settled down eventually and no lore airballs. Just had to be broken in. Most of those messed up gameplay anyway.

Love it! I slap pinstadiums on all my games. I just like the extra light and how the uv flasher really makes the art pop.

#5769 1 year ago

My friends game just chipped after 133 plays. Watch the ball guide on the left hairpin turn. There’s pics by Lermods and Gusphan in the club thread. I will get a pic this weekend.

Looks like where the right scoop would be on the Premium/LE. From the pictures of the Premium/LE playfield, there is no ball guide there, just on the Pro. is that post supporting the ramp on the Pro? Hard to tell from pictures. Pro owners should probably put a washer there?

#5775 1 year ago

Damn that sucks. Is the circled area damage too or a reflection?

It’s a Pro.

#5777 1 year ago

Yup I got that. I am just surmising that the Premium/LE might not have the issue with that particular post as there's no ball guide there.

No. The damage is where the edge of the ball guide is resting on the playfield. Up and to the right of your circle. I think that silver area is supposed to be black.

A post washer might lift that edge.

Just confirms Sterns’ Playfields are as bad as JJP, except they’re removed ink from under the posts.

And Stern actually have some customer service.

Quoted from Pinchild:

Oh then you haven't played GNR JJP yet.
Truly Amazing pinball a must have even if one doesn't like the band.
Glad to hear Mandalorian is fun.

it's a boring woodchopping unfathomable snoozefest. Sold mine haven't missed it at all.

Same impression of Guns N Roses being as you say: a “boring woodchopping unfathomable snoozefest” lol, can understand why you sold it. But the lights are cool, for those into lights.

Wow, your GNR lasted only 60 days in your home. Hope you were able to get out for at least what you paid.

Now Mando flows really quite nicely and seems to be a keeper. Will be fun when Prem/LEs begin shipping.

Looks like the same issue I had with my Antman scoop on AIQ. Cliffy to the rescue. And put a post washer on.

I had GnR LE and sold it as well(for a profit). It was an awesome package but not a great shooter really. Mostly i was just scared as hell it was going to fall apart like many others.

I wouldnt assume mando has widespread problems on that area of PF like GnR until we start seeing numerous affected customers like GnR had. Well see. Hope my premium arrives in good shape and stays that way

Yeah hopefully it’s not like the Katana ramp entrance on deadpool. Had that happen to mine.

#5790 1 year ago

Not sure why GNR is so popular in this thread but I’ll go to bat. GNR, much like Deadpool, is very finicky with its setup. You gotta find the right pitch to get it playing right. Again, much like Deadpool, when you get dialed in and tweaked right, it’s one of the best games around. So so good.

The inner spinner through the pops reminds me of the Karana ramp shot - so good. Hammering the right ramp target off a combo for a double jackpot is bad ass. It has one of the best mini pf’s around. And while the code needs some balancing, there really is quite a lot to do and strategize with. I’m 800+ plays in and just found a new strategy I really like. Not to mention, it’s such a unique and different type of modern game. It’s not a ‘samey stern’ and overall feels so good. Oh and the Adrenalin risk/reward associated with the code is so so good, not to mention the music lends itself so well to pinball. A+++ in my book. It just needs more polish in the rules and scoring balance which is coming.

Now back to Mando. Hope I get one …and soon…

I’m not promoting any mods or upgrades. Just showing an image of how the Playfield looks with HD glass and pinstadium. I put it on all my games. Just a preference of mine. I like how it looks. People were saying the pros they’ve played on location have a lot of glare and it’s difficult to see parts of the Playfield. People complain about pinstadium pricing but also spend $1000 for a plastic piece that sits on top of their game. Everything pinball is expensive.

#5792 1 year ago

Inner spinner was the best shot by far on GnR. And the spinner is cool. Tho it was also a stuck ball magnet for me! Prob needed more breaking in.

I never had issues with my katana ramp messing the playfield up and i had my premium 2 years. But you are right that shot and snkkt required very precise setup

They were in on the ruling as well. Another bad try.

Sorry not a jab at you. I was just poking fun at pin stadium and their way of marketing. Their before images are always way dark. My post was all in good fun, or meant to be.

No I know and you aren’t wrong. The before pictures are exaggerated for sure. Still a good product in my opinion.

#5796 1 year ago

Ok I’m still having issues any ball returning to the flippers from the left orbit goes straight down the middle

Game is fully level.

Im 99% sure my ball guide is off from the factory but want to check before adjusting.

Here is a photo it’s following metal ball guide then hitting black post. Right side the guide sticks out much further then the black post. Is anyone else’s game set up like this or is your ball guide pushed slightly towards the center of play field?

But looking at your picture, that guide needs to come out for sure. I bet it’s kicking off that post right now.

Glare guards/ Bent plastic are inexpensive and reduce glare. All of my location games get them.

#5799 1 year ago

Received my apron cards today in the mail. (Couldn’t decide which ones I wanted so I got both)

They look great and will look even better on my premium.

Thanks at Mr_Tantrum!

I’ll post some pics of them on the pin when I get it! Hopefully soon!

So...are any of you actually getting through the Encounters? I've got a decent amount of games on 2 different pros now. I've played both PC and ILTO a couple times each now, but the I've only gotten to the 2nd Encounter.
