Quoted from J85M:

Hope this helps if anyone else has the issue with the right side digging in or scraping.

A playfield protector makes that happen.

#2202 47 days ago
Quoted from Insanity_Falls:

Wellllll, I don’t know of a way to start it from regular gameplay and I’m not sure it’s wise to get into specifics in public since it involves some modifications to the game that may be frowned upon.
I’ll grab a vid of it running on my machine, though.

#2203 47 days ago
Quoted from Mikew492:

Mandalorian side armor looks really nice! Are they metal and do they feel sturdy?

Metal with a printed overlay. Happy with them!

Crazy! Thanks for the video!

Unfortunately in this case the scoop would have chewed up the playfield protector after the first game.

Spare new washer or £150+ for a playfield protector that isn’t really needed and can make games play like crap, I’ll go with raising the mech or guides everytime, plus it’s more fun ripping it apart

No problem. Now if I could figure out how to get THIS to pop up during gameplay...

Death save?

#2208 46 days ago

Which would be what, outlane switch activation, tilt warning, then playfield validation? Is that how the old DE pins that rewarded you for death saves did it?

#2209 46 days ago

Pretty interesting, LOVE that premium side art! I love Zombie Yeti on art but Randy knocked these art packages out of the park.

#2210 46 days ago
Quoted from PeterG:

Same with mine, some dust, cleaned and keep playing. Keep an eye on that.

I had gold dust under the mini playfield on my LE with around 280 plays. I did replace the coil stops.

Perhaps this has been mentioned before, but has anyone noticed HEAL not being awarded from the Child ? I'm able to purchase it in the Foundry. No luck when the Child awards it off a rollover letter.

#2211 46 days ago

Just done the one side to get an idea if it was going to look as good as I thought it would and Chrome t-moulding is an absolute must on the LE, it just pops with the back glass!

I've noticed this. Also, in the foundry if you get Light Child from the ? award the child isn't lit.

Do they have a public bug tracker or is it just kinda wild west email style?

Quoted from J85M:

Thanks dude appreciate that, but I have no idea how to do that
Just happy the two fixes I’ve posted (center ramp exit to left orbit & ambush scoop) have helped people out and worked on multiple games.
I got another incoming although it is less of a fix and more of an aesthetic improvement IMO.

I think a mod has to make it a key post

#2217 46 days ago

FlipnOut mentioned that the October Mando Prem runs were pushed back to December, which jives with other reports. I'm curious, though; has anyone with a 2nd-wave Mando order heard otherwise from their distributor? Did any small productions runs make it out this month?

#2218 46 days ago

Gave my Razorcrest a paint upgrade today.Loving this machine.

IMG_20211019_131830558 (resized).jpg
#2219 46 days ago

So after fixing the center ramp exit into the left orbit and making a few other tweaks.

I decided to remove some of the unsightly plastic shields. 30 games later no issues at all and the game looks much better without all the plastic shields everywhere, also removing the shield from the right ramp has made the upper playfield easier for my kids to see as well as making the game look less cheap.

That does look very smart! Did you manage to find a supplier of he correct size in the UK?

In the past I had to order from the US which can get expensive. Thanks.

Yeah https://www.arcadeworlduk.com/ sell 3/4” which is what Stern use.

Order the chrome with the blue protective covering, they do one without which is a little cheaper but that will likely turn up with some surfaces scratches.

https://www.arcadeworlduk.com/products/chrome-3-quarter-inch-t-molding-with-clear-protective-film.html

They do one with a clear protective film. Maybe worth a try? This one requires 1/16” slot and the other I brought was 3/33” I think.

#2224 46 days ago

thewool in fact I think it is the 1/16th one you want so grab that, might explain why it didn’t go in super easy on mine

But it looks amazing so whatever

Aha glad you mentioned that, will get it ordered.

Hey did you also remove the plastic cover from the mini playfield? I wondered what would happen there.

No I have left the plastic front on the mini playfield its marked -01 that has to remain in place otherwise I guess you would be loosing balls all over the place, didn’t even think about removing that one.

I just removed all the plastics behind the red flasher domes and the big L shaped plastic at the back of the right ramp which was blocking abit of the view of upper playfield and a lot of it for my kids being shorter.

Game looks a lot better for it I think, less random plastic everywhere which made it a little cheap looking IMO.

#2227 46 days ago

Here some minor stuff I changed on my mandalorian pro!
the figure costed me 25 euros shipped. A MUST have upgrade if you have a pro.
I designed a mount for the figure (ask me for STL if you want to 3D print)
also put some switch target foam on the diverter to help stop the bounce backs but not 100% fixed yet, sometimes ball still bounces back off the ramp.

To stop bounce back anything from 6.7 upwards seems to work. I have zero bounce back with game steep.

they took our meconium - no idea what that is in the callout though, googling it states some nasty stuff

How are those metallic cards attached? Where did you get them?

#2232 46 days ago
Quoted from KozMckPinball:

Made them in conjunction with a mate but I doubt they will be available due to the material and the amount of time they take to cut they would be fairly expensive.

Lockdown bar surround will be available though.

The CO OP and versus modes are great, I love playing with my son and progressing together.
Only thing that is missing from this mode is a way to "revive" a player on your last ball.
It would be great for me to get my kid "back in the game" if i can trade some beskar.

Something "negative" towards the other players to buy in the foundy in versus mode would be cool also, like less ballsave or something? just an idea.

I like that idea! My kids struggle with the upper playfield a lot, they are 5 and 4 and find it almost impossible to be up there much longer than a flip or 2.

Few little bits done today now my covid effects are dying down:

- J85M's left ramp no-clip mod (so far so good mate!)
- New flipper buttons (what a difference!)
- Replaced Stern's crappy tarnished balls
- Col's gorgeous orange plastic protectors added
- Cliffys installed
- All star posts replaced with orange
- All red flasher domes replaced using mostly orange, with blue for rear spacey one and green for left orbit
- Bargain Mando art hung (£20!)

Loving this game!

I'd buy the metallic cards if you offered them.

I will let you know mate if it’s do able.

Something I have been thinking over and over is resizing the plates so everything lines up. Done a little edit on the right hand side plate to show what I mean.

Looks great mate! Glad to hear the fix worked for you and your feeling better mate! And I do the same always replace Sterns balls and flipper buttons, no idea what it is but their flipper buttons just don’t feel right recently.

Any strategies out there for high scoring?

I should mention that I found some of that dark gold dust under my LE's mini-pf, so will also look to replace the coil stops at some point.

Loving your Mando figure above the miniature playfield. Makes sense to put him there and matches well with the Grogu figure.

#2246 45 days ago

So I got to play an amazing quality LE Mando last night... Wow, what a difference playing a nice new, cared for machine, versus the abused, neglected pro I played originally... Like a completely new game... Went from being mediocre , in my mind, on the title to wanting to add one to the lineup. You can't listen to the haters and this was a good lesson for me that you have to play the game (a proper setup /clean game) before you make final judgement.

#2247 45 days ago
Quoted from kempsuk:

Stack a mission with a good MB like Pirate and hit the flamethrower. Add in two playfield multipliers (decently easy to get) and you can easily have a 300+mil first ball.

Yeah, I can get 500k, but cant seem to get past that. Definitely need to start getting the "playfield multipliers" included in that Mission/MB/Flamethrower to assist.
Thanks for the tip!

#2249 44 days ago

Will I be officially owner of my Mando Pro pin one day??

Ordered in May with deposite, firstly, have been told June (but priority was for operators), then have been told August, then October.. I start to think it will be postponed again!!

This will be my 4th pin but my first NIB. This is definitely torture arghhh!

Hope to receive good news soon.. anyone received a pro recently?

#2250 44 days ago

Im in same boat with my premium. I had asked months in advance for LE but just missed apparantly and was suppossed to be early Premium. And I still dont have it. My godzilla premium will prob come before!
