The games are landing - and I don't see a club thread in the search... so here goes!

Our game landed yesterday and setup without any problems. Opened it up, cleaned the balls, and went right into play!

One thing we heard from another op who setup their game yesterday... it looks like the opto at the feed to the mini playfield might be a bit suspect. And some rubbing on the swinging target. I'll try to take a closer look at the game today.

#3 47 days ago

I guess they finally deleted the other one. People start like 5 clubs when they pay the deposit, lol! Glad that you’ve actually got it in hand! Thanks for sticking to the rules.

I bet it’s gonna earn like a monster!

It's a quick one for sure!

The mode hole feels like Indiana Jones all over... alot of shots like to bounce out of it (it has a factory metal 'cliffy' like surround). But you can backhand it from the left flipper a bit more reliably.

I probably should watch deadflip's stream again... there can be alot going on!

Only locations getting them at this time. So many people want to be the "CLUB" thread author. Pretty funny.

#6 47 days ago

On the crossing ramps... they are pretty in your face as you look at the game, but I didn't really notice a problem with them blocking views during play except the right right. That area with the 3 blue scope shots is pretty hard to see. I don't think they are all that ugly, and would have a hard time justifying a few hundred to replace them. Maybe once they get really dirty my mind would change

Walk up players should like the ease of starting multi ball.. the center lane/ramp shot is pretty easy to shoot. You'd think you MIGHT be able to backhand the left ramp... but its so tall, and I just don't think the geometry is quite there.

The 'dying power' on the upper flipper is a bit wonky right now. Wish there was maybe more audio or visual feedback on it happening. Tho I definitely felt it's impact. The mini PF was fun to try to complete.

I setup the game at about 6.8 deg mainly because that's where my first guess on the levelers put it and I didn't change it. The only shot that I think would be at risk for too steep is the tall left ramp.. but I still made it up there pretty reliably.

I heard a straight shot to the u turn is trouble.

Quoted from TheLaw:

I didn’t notice this on the one I played. I only put 6 games on or so though. It comes back fast, but not an automatic drain or anything.

#10 47 days ago

Any more broken left ramps?

#11 47 days ago
Quoted from TheLaw:

No obvious SDTM returns in our play so far. But honestly that area is so covered I'd probably have a hard time telling you exactly what was hit

You can short plunge into the encounter mini-pf too.. tho it didn't really seem adventagous to do so.. I didn't get anything special for it and the points were not great for 'sneaky encounter' as it calls it.

#12 47 days ago
Quoted from flynnibus:

Very advantagous as target hits add up as a secret encounter value of some sort.

Quoted from GravitaR:

I'm still trying to make sense of that though. There didn't seem to be any objective or carry over or progress from it. You scored for hitting the targets and would get something on the order of 50-60k or so.. but when I did finish it.. it didn't seem to be any big payoff or reward. Its like 'heres some pitance points.. move along'. And doing it multiple times on different plunges didn't seem to have any cumulative or additive value.

What code is shipped on the pros? .91 or .95? .96 dropped today and mentioned the addition of the sneaky skill shot in .95 - I'm sure more tweaking is in order.

Yeah i was hust coming back to say that. Just updated to .96 (was .91) and there is plenty of reason for the sneaky encounter now. Big points possible

#16 47 days ago

So a thing to watch for… the hanging target can actually impact the mini pcb that measures the target.

4B67AACC-CB26-4EF7-BB2A-6276AA741794 (resized).png

The slop in the mount allows the pin on the swing arm to actually contact the board. Will have to see what stern says about it.

Oh and the divertor on the center ramp was almost completely loose after 1 day. Just a screw to tighten, but it looks like it screws into plastic. (The plunger tip)

#17 46 days ago

We had some streamers tonight on our game - https://m.twitch.tv/videos/1057455576

Game performed flawlessly.

Think there are some software issues still. If you get a weak left ramp that drops to the mini pf instead of making it to the return… the game doesn’t seem to know you made it to the mini pf and does nothing on the mini pf. We had one time we swore the ball save on the outlane didn’t register but that could have gone either way.

If anyone knows how the playfield multipliers work… please speak up!

It seems sometimes completing an objective will boost the multiplier… but we had a hard time getting it past +1x

#18 46 days ago

When are games supposed to go out to people that preordered for the first run of games? Are pros first followed by LE’s?

#19 46 days ago

Distributor said le starts shipping next week into following so we are close. Shooter rod is august (already paid).

Mine is currently on its way, hoping to have it by Friday!

Anyone with a pro able to post the rubber schematics from the manual? Manual isn’t on sterns website yet and I’d like to get a titan order- ready for my pro when it arrives.

Remind me again in a couple of days if you haven't gotten it already and I'll send you what you need

#25 45 days ago

What, no poll? What kind of owner’s thread is this…

#26 45 days ago
Quoted from Apollyon:

Most definitely! Orange powdercoat and pin woofer at the ready also for when it arrives!

#27 45 days ago

I set up ours on location on Monday. I noticed that the ball doesn't always feed cleanly to the upper flipper - sometimes it just dribbles out with no way to hit it.

I think I measured the pitch by the flippers to be around 6.7. Is the pitch the issue? Anyone else have this problem?

#28 45 days ago

Got my shipping update saying tomorrow afternoon for my pro.

#29 45 days ago

So what are the options for side art blades? Any other companies beside stern making them? Thanks

Wizard is making some decent ones that have Gina Carino

#31 45 days ago

I’m getting my location pro tomorrow afternoon. Will have it out at the brewery for everyone to enjoy! Looking forward to it

#32 45 days ago

Got mine today. A lot to take in, but those people worried about voice assets, they have a ton.

It's just about how much energy the ball has coming into the mini PF. You don't get a full feed to the meat of the flipper all the time. A bit of umph/slack is often needed to get the initial contact. I see it as just part of the play of the mini.

Sounds like I'm in the first run of premiums in July!

I'm in that same boat too

#39 44 days ago

Has anyone designed some nice custom apron cards for this pin yet? I've search around, but have come up empty. As some/many may know, I do a ton of custom cards for a variety of pins myself. However, if there are good pre-existing ones out there I don't necessarily go to that effort.

I have an idea for the title card based upon the backglass art, but haven't come up with an instruction card design yet. Would an owner please post a pic of the OEM instruction card, so I can at least know what is on it?

You can pause the YouTube video I made for my lenticular and grab the text if that helps...

#43 44 days ago

That upper playfield is a bit of a pain on the initial feed. Sometimes the ball hits the plastic and dribbles down just short of the tip of the flipper. I think the natural reaction is to try to flip to hit it instead of trusting to hit the flipper. Had better luck in later games just trusting the ball would go to the flipper.

It was funny when they unboxed mine to load it in my truck I looked at the decal at the bottom and thought it was ripped because of the black ground at the bottom edge.

#46 44 days ago

Finally! An official owners thread, I consider myself an owner when I pay in full, which was a while ago. Distro says end of month for LE possibly. Can't wait!
