Quoted from TheNoTrashCougar:

Here is the drop switch.
https://www.pinballlife.com/sub-microswitch-with-19-straight-flat-actuator.html
Be careful when tightening the switch down as too much sideways pressure on the switch can make it stick and/or damage it.
Here is a diagram of the TNA pop from the Baywatch manual that I have. Same thing.

There are two threaded rods that come down from the pop bumper ring. Each will go through three washers, then the two yokes and secured with the lock washer.

Oops. I would trust KingPinGames over my post, though I have always seen what I posted on plenty of games, only with 1 washers not 3, as described here:

Thank you! kingpingames and floyd1977 back up and running. Funny thing I didn't notice till I was playing today that it had dropped and I had some of my best games past few days without the pop bumper working. Lol. Thanks gentleman!

from the field, a stock machine is on coin operated play and enjoyed by new, casual and expert players alike in a public arcade.

What size torx bit do I need to open the siren light? T8?

#4759 1 year ago
Quoted from ramsfan:

I notice the scoring display not functioning at all (it looks like it is stuck in some type of start up mode).

I would reach out to Spooky about that. Hopefully you can resolve it soon to get some playtime in.

#4760 1 year ago
Quoted from Fytr:

Note that it produces approx. 1/2 the airflow of the stock fan

Is that a concern at all?

#4761 1 year ago

thenotrashcougar Are we close to 1.3.1 release or would you still recommend 1.3.1.b3?

#4762 1 year ago

I'm enjoying the game more with the flipper strength at 26. For me it makes the game a little bit easier.

#4764 1 year ago
Quoted from HookedonPinonics:

I did not make this. It was provided to me by Spooky Tech when I was having issues on my lights. I agree it is a great resource and hope it gets included in the TNA manual when it becomes public.

Indeed - this is a great resource - thank you for sharing. I'm going to print and laminate this and put it in the game.

#4765 1 year ago
Quoted from EightBitWhit:

it will be in the manual. I need to update a couple of pictures from the latest code and hopefully will have a draft for everyone to look at (and to rip me a new one for not being a manual designer) by the end of the this month (february 2019)

For sure. Mine will look like doodles on a napkin by comparison

#4768 1 year ago

Can someone send me the numbers off the backbox key? We may have lost ours and I have a pile I can go through before picking or drilling. There was much drinking and rejoicing after the last code update.

They are different. You can go to an auto parts store and get a basic torx bit set (tamper proof). You can unscrew the plate that has the lock and then remove the entire plate and change the lock

#4771 1 year ago

Should be taking delivery of my first pin, #527, early next week!

#4772 1 year ago

Got my TNA set up today and I'm loving it! A few things:

Should the backglass feel kind of loose like it's rattling around when I touch it?

Is 1.2.1 the latest firmware?

Anybody else have problems with their backglass key? Mine works about 1 in 10 attempts at turning it. The cashbox key works great.

How can I lock the front metal edge piece back in after removing the glass? I pulled the lever to remove it but I can't figure out how to lock it back in. The lever doesn't seem to want to move once the metal edge is back in place.

I still need to level it.

Love the game! My first pin!

First off congrats on your first pin!

My backglass is the same, a little rattly but not really an issue for me at least.

no, you can get instructions on how to update the game and also the latest production code here: http://www.scottdanesi.com/?page_id=783

My backglass key work just fine every time.

The lever may be a little hard to push back in. (edit: You will want to pull the lever to the left then place your lock down bar in then push the lever to the right)

(if i missed anything someone else also chip in)

perfectly right. a little hard to do on my machine too, just wiggle a bit and try a few more times, put pressure on the lockdown bar. it will close up fine!

#4775 1 year ago

You can adjust the screws in the lockdown bar receiver to make it easier to lock down . Do them each a half turn at a time until the lock bar fits nice and tight but can be latched easily.

#4776 1 year ago

My cousin's game is very difficult to latch the lock down bar. Really looked at it hard one day and I really couldn't figure out a good solution to make it easier. The notches simply weren't low enough for the mechanism to latch properly, and the screws didn't help. We just have to battle it to get it to work every time.

#4777 1 year ago

Hooked on pinball Reactor mod installed Since my machine is all powder coated black I had to make it black instead of chrome...great mod!

Funny, I got my TNA delivered today (by Chris at Kingpin games, HIGHLY recommend) and I wondered the same thing about the back glass and am having difficulty with the lock bar as well. I haven't messed around with it too much because I'm having too much fun playing. The only other issue I had was my siren topper makes a grinding noise sometimes when it spins. I'll open it up and look at it tomorrow.

This game definitely has me playing "one more game," over and over again.

I used two small pieces of sticky back weather strip to provide cushion for the backglass. Glad you're enjoying the game!

The rock tumbler beacon is on mine too. I just turn off the beacon on attract mode.

#4780 1 year ago

Killer looking game bladefury!

#4781 1 year ago

Will update the firmware and work on the lock down bar today.

When does the red siren topper come on?

During normal gameplay it comes on while your reactor is critical.

Is there a recommended walkthrough/tutorial video?

#4784 1 year ago
Quoted from procks:

this is a great one, but also contains a spoiler for the end of the game just as an FYI if you care

#4785 1 year ago

Ok I'll try to avoid the spoiler. Is it at the end of the video?

BTW I got the latch closed by pressing my forearm against the bar and putting a lot of weight on it. This is closed, right?

Ha, rock tumbler is a good description of the noise. Is this pretty normal for TNA? Did you ever take a look at it the siren?

The game is super fun and addictive.

#4788 1 year ago

PIcked up a gorgeous TNA earlier in the week, and played a bunch of games before upgrading from 1.2.1 to 1.3.0.

I've got three bugs to report
1. Present in both versions. You cannot tilt during bonus count. Even worse, if the tilt bob is still swinging, any tilt warning (or possibly tilt) will commence for the next player or ball. Tilt switch activation should continue through bonus count, and next ball should not advance until tilt switch activation has ceased for a reasonable time frame.

2. Present only in 1.3.0. Have seen a number of times where a slingshot (right that I've seen) stays activated for several seconds after a fire. Super annoying.

3. Have had one instance in normal single ball play, reactor not started, where the shaker produced a continuous rumble. Nothing would stop it. It would shake normally during game activated features, then return to this low rumble state. Had to turn the game off to get it to stop.

#4789 1 year ago

Love the speaker light kit. Thanks Team Spooky!

On thing to check is that the brackets that hold the speaker panel in on the head aren’t too wide. On my game the speaker panel and Bk above it would wobble out from where they meet. Once when moving the game the BG fell right out! Was a minor miracle it didn’t shatter.

I simply bent the brackets that hold the speaker panel in place down/narrower and that solved it 100%.

Can you downgrade to earlier code on spooky games?

Yes. I once backed it down to an old code just so I could hear the old BEEPs!

Interesting. Does anybody's not wobble where those two panels meet?

Quoted from iloveplywood:

I did take a look and I tried to get some super lube in the mechanism, but it really didn't help. It was covered at some point either in this thread or the TNA production thread, but it's pretty normal among TNA's. If you take it off attract mode, the beacon only lights up during critical reactor. At that point, it's really hard to hear the beacon, especially with a shaker installed. (which btw, if you don't have one for this game, it is a must)

#4796 1 year ago

Regarding the tricky back box key up above: are you sure you are using the right one? It’s different than the coin door key and it is hidden on a little clip inside the door.

#4797 1 year ago
Quoted from procks:

Interesting. Does anybody's not wobble where those two panels meet?

I added a 2 inch section of weather stripping on each side to keep the glass from vibrating against the speaker panel. It was more the noise that bothered me. The weather stripping took care of that.

#4798 1 year ago

I'm joining the club! Mine should be shipping soon. I purchased through Kingpin too! I've been looking forward to adding this game to my collection ever since playing it with friends on location.

Any tips for setup?
What are your recommendations on playfield angle, 6.5 degree?

#4799 1 year ago

Well, #216 has started to get play field chipping . The bottom right sling star post has some paint coming up around it. I’ve played an estimated 800 games on it (code update wiped my audits). The bottom left sling star post looks to be “pushing” up some of the clear coat. I guess it is time to order the play field protector.

#4800 1 year ago

All if you haven't got the washers on your star posts - DO THIS NOW. Pretty much all of the games made are going to suffer from this problem.

Neil.
