Looks like that guy who plays mythrol on the show being charged with sexual assault what’s up with these mandalorian actors ? They going loco or something . Well maybe that’ll bump up the collectibility of our machines like depp did for potc hehe

Quoted from Jerickso77:

With 2 playfield multipliers lit I hit a Razorcrest hurry up for $340M. Is that a bug? I don't know the rules of how that hurry up works but seems insanely high.

I suggest learning how the hurry up works. Haha. I don’t know the scoring for it either, but doesn’t seem out of the realm of possibility.

#7005 3 months ago

None of the rule sheets I've seen list point values but it seems like a standard hurry up. Start at a certain value and go down. I can't imagine it starts that high!

Glass off test and report back! Almost all the hurry ups I’ve seen Dwight do have something that builds them or increases their starting value.

#7007 3 months ago

Maybe it's based on how well you did in the previous multiball?

#7008 3 months ago

Glass off I got it up to 10M with 1 multipliers. May you can it up to like 50M but no way it goes much higher than that.

#7009 3 months ago

With flamethrower and playfield x you can get that shot up to 12x value I believe.

#7010 3 months ago

The hurry starts at like 5M. You can build a little with ramps but it goes down just as fast. 12X on 5M is only 60M. I really don't see it getting too much higher.

#7011 3 months ago

Maybe it’s similar to the bug where the high score amount is different than what you actually got? Did you actually get that many points?

Question...
My plastic post is about an 1/8 of an inch hovering above the playfield... anyone else's? Or should it be torqued flush to the pf?

Is there no longer a nut under that post? If not definitely needs to be flush with playfield.

#7014 3 months ago

Finally got my hands on an LE today for 5 games or so and I loved it! Definitely better than I expected.

Nothing but the screw shaft underneath.

Good they must have removed it from recent builds. I would try to get as flush as possible without over tightening. Might not sit 100% flat because of the rubber pulling on the top of the post and the way the post is attached.

#7017 3 months ago

So looks like they put a nut and washer under the post... is this right or do i need to remove it and make the post flush to the pf?

Oh it's still there...goofy design IMO but it's there so the rubber is at the right height. I would leave it there and just try to keep it even. Looks pretty good in that pic.

Is that a Pro? The only star posts on my LE are 3 in the slings each and 2 on each side under the side plastic near the outlane. 8 total. All flush and I put Cliffy's washers underneath all of them.

I wonder why they did it that way instead of putting the nut about the star post or using a post stud like this: https://www.marcospecialties.com//images/products/02-4002-3/detail.jpg

It's so weird that the roll over lanes at the top that spell child are at different heights on the playfield. Almost like a downhill effect, which causes the ball to bounce downhill and come right down the middle on me. Hate it, what's the fix to this?

I removed the rubbers on the two middle ones. This makes it not come down the middle.

I had 5x during it this morning and I think my shots were around 50M.

The leading (closest to Grogu in the lane plastic) rubber is smaller than the downside one. Maybe you have the wrong (bigger) rubber size on the leading lane guide post?

Nope, the rubbers in the middle bounce it towards the middle. So I removed one and it bounced less.

leave it alone. its clearly a fix to make the rubber at touch higher in relation to the ball. its probably like that to squash airballs

#7028 3 months ago

have all the premiums from the original run been sent out at this point? I was told I was in the original run but its seemed to have slowed down and whats on the line has changed.

Quoted from Waxx:

Just not understanding the issue, sorry about that. Are you saying that the issue is the other lanes are never in play just the middle ones because of the lane position and lane rubber? But taking the lane rubber off the middle lanes helps this?

Yes, the way it drops in from the top it always bounces off the rubbers and towards the crest. Casuals would plunge three times straight down the middle and walk away unhappy.

Is anyone getting pro's now? In ordered on announcement day and was in this run but still haven't heard anything from my distrib

Damn you ordered the day was announced and you still don't have your pro? I guess it's gonna be a while for me then because I just ordered like a week ago.

Yeah that doesn't sound right... I placed my order on 7/12 with GameRoomGuys and it was delivered 8/4...

#7034 3 months ago

I ordered pro close to announcement and it is barely shipping out today supposedly.

#7035 3 months ago

Ordered mine (Pro version) on May 25 with deposite... still no news

#7036 3 months ago

Any idea what is actually on the line these days? I heard tons of previous title runs are delayed but no mention of Mando delays. Are Pros or premiums on the line right now? Im waiting on a premium that was ordered first week during the launch in May.

Ive ordered from grg before on other stuff and was good experience. Switched distribs this time and not very pleased. Considering canceling and finding a pro somewhere else.

Friend of mine is getting his premium he ordered when it was announced, next week. They were the last on the line it seems

Cant find anything about the little design flaw when an fast speed ball start jumping through the lock shot it hits the plastic and slow down the ball.
There is no fix for this yet? There should be an mod with an target there on the plastic

I ordered my pro on 5/11 with them and picked it up on 6/16. Have bought all but 1 of my pins from them and they have been really good. Helped out with any issues and they let me know when the accessories are available.

After designing a few of the smoothest shooting & highest-rated games of all time, Brian's 2-for-2 on clunkers in his return. I don't get why Gomez or someone doesn't gatekeep that stuff. "Hey man, let's look at the razor crest return feed" or whatever.

The razor crest return is completely smooth on mine and I don't find Eddy's new stuff clunky. Gomez is one of my favorite designers but his games are rarely the smoothest. BM66 may be the clunkiest game I've ever owned. The right ramp on LOTR could be the least satisfying ramp ever made.

I just unscrewed the plastic and put a strip of foam under it. Raised it up enough that the ball doesn't hit it.

#7046 3 months ago

I also ordered day one pro and am hearing October. Seems some Distros got more supply then others.

#7047 3 months ago

I wish somebody would do a definitive 'how to fix or correct' the few issues for EACH models, e.g. for LE versus Premium and Pro. With pics and instructions.

Because other than that, myself I have done absolutely nothing to my Premium other than just enjoy it. It's a super fun, accessible game and NO disappointment so far. None!

But I just don't want to be told, sometimes down the road, that a cheap piece of foam would have prevented something to break off, stuff like that..

Mine supposedly shipped last Thursday. Still haven't seen or heard anything. Paid in full mid May.

The gameroom guys example of a july purchase and august delivery, coming before others earlier in line, shows what's wrong with this industry

Quoted from sirocket:

It seems it comes down to how much each distributor sold and how much is alloted by stern to each. Say each dist is alloted 5 games/round, but dist A sold 15 games at announcement and dist B sells 4 at announcement. They each get 5 and guess what, dist B has 1 in stock to sell right now while those early buyers from dist A who are 14 or 15 in line are waiting!

Just hypothesis. I placed an order with Maine Home Rec a month ago and two weeks ago he calls and says it’s ready to ship. I wasn’t expecting it that fast but sounded good to me!

The 2 I've played are both smooth as well. Must be off kilter or something. And Stranger Things is super smooth.
