Quoted from bernieberg:

think I will just stick with my zip tie solution for now, as it seems to be working well and is getting plenty of plays on location.

Can you share pics?

Quoted from bernieberg:

I received my replacement diverter from stern today. It took just over a week to get it. It looks to be the same welds as the one that broke. Hopefully they make stronger welds in the future. I think I will just stick with my zip tie solution for now, as it seems to be working well and is getting plenty of plays on location.[quoted image]

Man from that side it even looks like spot welds with almost no penetration. Guess no changes yet :/

Can anyone confirm the 0.97 code sufficiently tamed down the shaker on the LE. I am on vacation so I haven’t been able to install and see for myself.

Quoted from PaulCoff:

I just have the same picture I posted before, attached again here. I just put two zip ties trough the hole and around the bottom part of the diverter. I just tried out of desperation, but it has done surprisingly well. It has had almost 300 plays on it with the zip tie solution.

Does the ball just rattle over them?

It just bounces around them and into the staging area. I'll try to get a video this weekend sometime.

No question it isn't ideal. But it doesn't affect game play.

Does it stop the bounce back people are complaingin about?

#558 10 months ago

Is there any scenes or assets shown on the screen during ambush and if you complete it? Im pretty sure ive hit it a few times in a row while the flashers blinking on the diverter and the white ambush inserts blinking but havent seen or heard anything related to ambush that i can tell.

#559 10 months ago

Mando LE set to arrive in 4 hours! Can’t wait to play it. Half day Friday!

Ha! I was wondering the same thing. Maybe the zip ties are a fix for two issues...

Well, if you have zip ties and duct tape in your tool box you can fix just about anything!

I haven't had any issues with bounce back with the zip ties. But, I didn't notice it before either.

Quoted from Phbooms:

Yes its a whole mode of its own. You should see the screen saying how many shots left after making the successful combo to progress towards it

Even on the LE? I might have to take the glass off and do some testing cause im not seeing anything happen when I hit the shots. Maybe my optos are reversed, i seen another guy here say his were and couldnt complete some modes but i know ive hit it for super jackpot and the first shot of the super skill shot combo. Thanks for responce!

Hello!
LE owner,
Having issues with my upper playfield,
Left flipper stopped working when the playfield lays flat.
Once it goes upright, both flippers work.
Was fine for the first 20 games.
Stopped just after that.
Here is the tech report

If I’m not mistaken all of the LE owners have that screen popping up currently. I have the same alerts on mine however the flippers are working.

#566 10 months ago

Flippers will work,
When the mini playfield is standing straight up,
Left stops working when it tilts back and lays flat.

#567 10 months ago

I got my LE and played about 20 games so far. It’s early but we can usually tell if it’s a keeper or not. This pin is awesome. The family loves it. Super fun shots, the moving playfield is a blast and great theme integration. It’s a bummer the people who wanted a LE couldn’t get one and there are so many people trying to flip for thousands more including distributors. It really is a beautiful looking pin and the armor color/design they did right. It’s nice to see them not use a generic rails like the last few LEs

#568 10 months ago

Guessing you have a break in a wire or a bad solder. Pull the playfield and inspect.

#569 10 months ago

Got my LE #122 with a banner .

That Banner is awesome, how does a guy get one of those?

#571 10 months ago

A little square of this on the catch of the diverter causes the balls to stop dead. No more bounce backs, even with flipper power at factory default.

I used some 3M VHB squares I had on hand to make sure this stays put.

#573 10 months ago

I'm in with an LE.

Is this normal? When I stage flip the right flipper button (press it slowly so only one flipper goes up at first) the bottom goes up, then the top one on the mini-playfield. But, when I stageflip the left flipper button, the upper one on the mini goes first. Then the lower. This is unusual.

I've also had the lower left stay up on it's own during a game. I thought it was the button wearing in. But maybe the wiring is incorrect and the game thinks it's holding up the upper flipper?

I’m guessing that’s correct as the strategy for the upper Playfield is to catch the ball with the left flipper during game play.

Quoted from beltking:

Anyone making a longer metal piece? My ramp cracked on le on game two out of box. Not cool.
[quoted image]

This crack occurs because they installed the screw in the wrong place. There’s a huge gap in between the ramp and protector, thus the screw takes all the force. This causes the crack.

Before I routed mine, I made the hole larger on the protector, then I used 2 sided tape between the ramp and protector, and used zip ties instead of screws. Been on route for a few weeks now, and all is fine.

Had some 6” mythosaur skulls cut out of metal and powder coated for my speaker panel. Turned out darker than I intended… but I’m very happy with the overall look.

That would look sweet with speaker lights

If you sell any I might be interested. Let me know if you do

Yeah....I would expect they would look pretty nice backlit. The issue with some designs is the fine detail in them (if they have any) will get lost in the honeycomb grill pattern, but that design looks to be big and "bold" enough that it should stand out pretty well with the grill area backlit.

#580 10 months ago

New to the game but any downside to disabling the top orbit post? Certainly shoots a lot smoother/faster.
Seems similar to MET that way.

Isn’t it supposed to drop it into the pops?

#582 10 months ago

Just unboxed LE 713. Where is that ball guide that digs into the playfield? All of my ball guides are raised.

I was wondering when someone was going to start making the skulls as mods. Love this!

#585 10 months ago
Quoted from Waxx:

Yes, it helps divert the ball down to the pops but easily done with it disabled as well. It just keeps disrupting an initial full plunge so wondering if it serves another function in the game that I’m missing.

The horseshoe lane guide by the right ramp but I think they started adding washers after a couple weeks of production.

what is the part number for the lockdown bar button assembly? I ordered a spare lock down bar and legs to get them power coated but would like an extra button as well.

Backwards on the left flipper.

#589 10 months ago

I have had a lot of shots go up the ramp to the upper playfield, hit the stopper and roll all the way back down. Also, the foundry shot bounces out of the a decent amount. Anyone do anything to try to fix it or have similar experiences?

The upper playfield is more frustrating and happens off the right flipper offer. If I backhand it then it usually stays up there

In general I am not a guy that goes in much for mods ( pin gulp is usually my limit )
But I'd say those cut outs on the speakers are pretty nice. Looks good. Nice job !

Adjusting the flipper strength fixed both issues for me. I think I settled on 240 left and 210 right, but it took a lot of trial and error to get the right flipper to consistently stick the encounter ramp.

LE 299 in the house! I've experiencing heavy rattling / cabinet vibrations..seems to come from the cabinet speaker, even with glass off. Anyone else?

#593 10 months ago

I have fixed both of my bounce out and bounce back issues. The ramp to the upper playfield, and the foundry.

Picked this stuff up on Amazon. Stuck a little square in the foundry scoop where the ball impacts. Also stuck a square on the end of the metal diverter when the ball impacts. This stuff works awesome. That ball stops dead in its track when I hit the ramp now.

It does not have an adhesive backing. So you’ll need to use some sort of double sided tape. I used this 3M stuff that goes on those little wall hangers.

Here is the amazon link for this stuff.

If you don’t want to spend $20 on this stuff, shoot me a PM. I can mail you enough for what you’ll need for $5.

Same! Put some anti-rattle/felt tape on the back glass and has toned it down a bit.
