New! Exclusive! Dare I say EPIC mod?

Just kidding, it's just a usb extension ran to the coin door. When you're slightly wider than the space you left between the games, this helps a lot.

10' usb male to female extension cable (around $4 on amazon.

Works great.

And yes, you can load all your p-roc game updates on the same flash drive as the system looks for a specific title to update that specific game (you can also do this with jjp delta updates).

Love it. Did the same thing to my game to help speed up dev testing.

Quoted from Fytr:

Maybe we can take spare led boards and splice in to the existing insert ones in such a manner that they would be programmed identically? Probably not possible the way these things are individually addressable...

Maybe two LEDs on one board/address like the sling boards done by TimeBandit for Alien ... ?

#5804 1 year ago
Quoted from razorsedge:

Yes. I’m assuming the individual led boards couldn’t power two leds directly but one could be made that could. Or maybe there’s a way to configure the led board to “mimic” the original one so they both react to the same address (I have no idea how these actually work, clearly).

That's a great idea...

I love the beepgate reprise. Can you do an option in the finished code release to choose either song for the main theme? I think it would be cool to be able to switch it up sometimes.

#5808 1 year ago

Has spooky replaced chipping playfields yet? Jjp started doing this for potc.

for extreme cases they did. for the majority of people that had issues, the washers were enough to cover and stop further damages.

I found a place that does the neoprene washers, bulk. Armouredhobbit put them on today. She said quite a few of the star posts had to be replaced; the original material definitely was no bueno, as even star posts not taking impact were failing bad..

Here's what I found for the neoprene:

https://www.primal23industrial.com/34-OD-X-316-ID-X-116-Thickness--Endeavor-Series-Neoprene-Rubber-Washers_p_27.html
E75316116 3/4" OD X 3/16" ID X 1/16" Thickness - Endeavor Series Neoprene Rubber Washers

I bought a bag of 300 for $43.95 (plus $2.95 shipping). That should last me until the neoprene dries out...

For the LOCALS near me, I also have a ton of 3/4" OD x 5/16" ID x 1/16". The holes are bigger than they need to be. If you want some, grab some at the next gathering.

For the record I am still rocking the PET G washers (https://pinside.com/pinball/forum/topic/total-nuclear-annihilation-cluball-welcome/page/110#post-5067828). They are invisible and serve the same purpose as the metal washers shipping on the new games.

I’m having a TNA side tournament this weekend. The prize is kind of an inside joke, but I’ll explain.

It’s called “The China Syndrome”
Teams of two pay 3.6 dollars per entry.
Each team plays a two player co-op game.
The team with the most reactors destroyed wins.
No playoffs.
Entries are not limited. You can play with different team mates to get the best score.
The plan is to let people pair up and have a fun distraction while the main tournament is running.

The winning team gets two of these mugs.

Game controlled room lighting
Hooked up an esp8266 to the beacon, it communicates with the open APIs of the Nanoleaf Aurora and the Phillips Hue track lighting.

Multiple light-gasms!

Also have some Aurora panels - they are very cool.

Hilarious, I did the same thing. My Nanoleaf Aurora pattern is different, at least!

Use the entertainment zones on the Hue lights. The old system is slloooooooow. I’m just about at bridge max for lights

#5823 1 year ago

I think I remember someone on here hooking into the speaker lights on TNA and lighting their gameroom with the same colors as the speakers. That is awesome!!! I love when people do this stuff.

#5824 1 year ago
Quoted from VolunteerPin:

Speaking of skill shots, I have an absolutely terrible time ever getting my plunge to go through the top lanes. Either too soft or too hard. Any suggestions?

You gotta bump the machine forward when it reaches the top . If the ball is going slow enough, bumping it will usually cause it to catch and fall in.

#5825 1 year ago

With all of those extra lights you're going to need one of these. Getting really close to being done with this meter and should be ready by the end of the month. It's a batch of 25 with potential for another 25 later on. Send a PM if interested in a meter and would like to be added to the list.

The gif is of the demo board which has a small issue preventing correct placement under the apron, function is otherwise 100%. Mounting issues have been addressed and final boards should be here any day. Changes are minor and the picture does reflect the final board.

Ball ready activates green forward flashes.
Auto plunger activates a white forward flash.
Analog plunger meter with gradual light levels.
4 brightness settings.
On/off for ball ready and auto plunger effects.

Cammy - Officially badass.

#5827 1 year ago

Thanks!

And twhtalm I'm sold! Will pm you!

The side lights would be cool but I hear users have had issues with them, like they just stop working. I'm assuming it's like 3in EL tape.

#5828 1 year ago

Yeah, I NEED one of those shooter lane kits.

Check the mail at PBL in about 2-3 weeks, you should already be expecting one.

#5830 1 year ago

Anyone see problems when 2 balls enter the left scoop at the same time? We've had it happen a couple times. Game won't ball search or try to kick them out.

check your opto and make sure it is working properly. 2 balls entering the scoop is not an issue, it still only registers just the first ball.

I can't believe this guy is getting his before me..... What did he create the game ?!

#5834 1 year ago
Quoted from TheNoTrashCougar:

It works fine at all other times. If it wasn't detecting the ball, wouldn't it ball search?

Edit: turns out one of the reactor target switches was stuck closed.

#5835 1 year ago

Anyone know what springs/sleeves are being used in the TNA plunger assembly? Not seeing it in the manual

#5836 1 year ago

Here's what i added this weekend. The video starts on ball 3.

#5850 1 year ago

Question:
Got a credit dot, and figured it must be the right scoop which I rarely hit. So I'm not sure how to see which switch is causing the credit dot. Hitting the scoop didn't immediately clear it. Just found a "clear service notifications" option. So I cleared it, but then had to restart the game. Just wondering how to see what triggers a credit dot.
Muchas gracias.
