Anyone getting any signals on accessories?

Side armor for the pro and premiums are supposed to ship in August. I've already ordered a set through my distributor, although I won't see my Pro until October. No word on the topper yet.

Ah cool. I've got a set of that and the rod on order since earlyish June but haven't heard anything.

#6504 4 months ago

Premium shipping end of next week from my distributor up here in Canada. Ordered pretty much on day 1 after the announcement.
Accessories look dope. Can’t wait to add them (and for the topper reveal).

Stoked to start flipping on this machine and never getting the theme song out of my head…lol

#6507 4 months ago
Quoted from MarklarD:

I did update to .97 and thought the same thing as you. My wife and I went to play a couple games and I was telling her how grogu shouldnt be doing that on the plunge anymore and she got it her first shot Seems kind of random when it will trigger.

Im not sure what triggers it either but i know on the second ball the super skill shot never works for me because that stupid orbit post keeps popping up and not letting the ball go through the orbit clean. Must be a bug in the code.

Quoted from Oneangrymo:

[quoted image]

Man i bet your one angry mo! Whoever did it wrapped it with plastic wrap like that would help, idiots! Did you end up taking it out of the box to check it out or just send it back?

#6508 4 months ago

Hmmm. I havent had too much trouble with (starting) the super skill shot since the update. Are you holding the left flipper before you start the plunge?

#6509 4 months ago
Quoted from MarklarD:

Hmmm. I haven't had too much trouble with (starting) the super skill shot since the update. Are you holding the left flipper before you start the plunge?

You have to hold the flipper in until the ball gets past the switch in the left orbit, almost to the spinner. I am torn on if this is best. On one hand you can choose the super skill shot or you can just feed to lower flippers quickly. But its not as intuitive.

I documented everything and took photos, from what i could see inside there is no damage, but I haven't unboxed it fully yet, wish me good luck! Mando! Yeah its like putting saran wrap on to cover up their damage haha.

Yes every ball i hold the left flipper in but every game the up post in orbit pops up it seems at least on one of the balls. Its annoying that this little bug is in there but Dwights team will get it cleaned up soon enough im sure.

Good luck i hope its just the box damaged for you!

Any plans for a wizard similar to Jedi or Cowabunga Super Wizard mode? Game could use a ultimate wizard that requires Ambush, Hunter, and all 3 scope shots finished for a super hard to get to wizard thats beyond This is the way. Also maybe extra ball award after completing the first 3 stages(Level 1) of encounters.

#6512 4 months ago

Mandalorian LE #354 arrived last night.
Looks and plays great

#6513 4 months ago

So any idea in when topper be released?

#6514 4 months ago

This should be the final version for the Helmets mod....the original version was fully printed in resin. This meant the stakes weren't as tough as they needed to be. The new version is printed in 2 pieces and the stakes themselves are steel, which will definitely an improvement. The current version is in the league machine and Mando is in the bank this week so it will get a ton of plays on it. I would imagine by the weekend I will know of I feel confident enough to start producing them.

Thanks again

Folks!

Please don't hurt me for not reading all the posts, but after playing the Pro in an arcade I've decided I want to buy one--eventually.

Ideally, I'd like to put a deposit down now and then pay for the rest in an end of year shipment.

With that in mind, can you recommend a reputable dealer who might do this with low or free shipping? I see these priced at $5,999 with some dealers but I don't know their reputation. If you got this kind of deal, can you tell me who you bought it from? Much appreciated!

Posting your location will help. Going with a local distributor has lots of benefits

I saw somewhere that the side armor was $289ish.

Picked up my premium today.

The upper playfield is a blast to play.

Dammit! You got me thinking so I looked at the invoice just now. $290.00, so much for my good deal.

Knocked it out on all three for art. There isn’t one that i don’t like.

#6533 4 months ago

going to powder coat legs and lock down bar but cant decide what color....I can either go with the brown from the Gun on the side armor, or the Orange from the Mando name. Thoughts? First time powder coating

That looks amazing. sign me up for a few of them. Just tell me who and where to pay. Nice work. Will fit in to the game perfectly.

Regarding the shaker settings: I found a couple of settings for the shaker, one was "Moderate Usage"/"Minimum Usage" or something like that and the coil test of 48V. The coil test indicates "return=1, power=5". I did not find a direct adjustment for shaker power like I have on my MMR. I have no idea what "return" means. Anyone have any insight? I put anti-rattle tape on the glass but the shaker is a little too powerful, I have found during the coil test. I have 0.97 code on my machine. I know Dwight did some shaker re-coding but really just looking for a direct adjustment for shaker power if possible. I assumed that "Moderate Usage" means only turn the shaker on less often at the same power though.

To this day I still can't figure out why Stern doesn't have some adjustment in the settings to increase or decrease the power of a shaker motor to adjust to "taste"

Stern shakers have no romance, straight to the jackhammer.

Yes! This would be great. I want to be able to change the intensity of the shaker and not just how frequently it turns on. Even after the 0.97 supposedly adjusted the levels, it is still too much. I have the shaker on my LE turned to off because it is just obnoxious. My DE JP shaker is perfect, more of a rumble than a shake. Also, the shaker on CGC Medieval Madness is also a nice rumble and well executed.

Doesn't adjusting the weights in the shaker change the intensity? I haven't done that in forever but I remember it working that way or maybe it was just smoother. Either way, it may help.

You’d think FedEx employees would take pride in their jobs, moving something 2 hours away and having it arrive in perfect condition. I would be proud if I accomplished that alongside my coworkers. Now it’s just ‘fork right through the box, we don’t get paid enough to care anyway’… so I’ve got some scraped cabinet decals on my brand new game. Amazing effort. 2 hours from the factory and couldn’t get it here undamaged.

Anyone outside of IL heard any news on Preimums? We're in NE, and usually they arrive here pretty quickly after IL, so I'm hoping to hear something today or tomorrow from my distro, and I hope a few extra dollars will convince them to deliver by the weekend!

LE #509 reporting in! I almost got that May 4th edition haha (504). I got the game setup last night and was able to get a few games in with some friends. Everyone had a blast playing. I’m really looking forward to getting some more games on it and installing a few mods. I’d like to give a shout out to Mike at Great American Pinball. I recommend working with him if you’re in the Midwest area.

I want to love the LE as the cabinet art is tits, but just couldn’t do it. It has the unfortunate pairing of cool tones on the cabinet and warm tones on the pf; a design no-no that any artist/painter would immediately point out. Also, Grogu art sucks, looks little like the child should (too wrinkly/scowly/proportions off). That being said, very much looking forward to receiving a first run Premium, which I think has best art, mainly because Grogu head art is smallest on this edition

You’re not wrong in saying the premium art is the best from pictures.

But once you see them in person... The LE is the one easily. The backglass may be the coolest modern backglass i’ve ever seen. It has so much neat mirroring.
