Could probably rig one of these off the backbox too?

That feeling when you move the hands free skill shot to another position and it lands in the hole you picked originally

Also I play at volume 3 usually....

Quoted from TigerLaw:

I’m somewhat behind on the thread. Code update you say? I really couldn’t envision any way to improve this amazing game.

Co-op high scores. Think Scott is already working on this.....

#3983 1 year ago

I'm doing a parts order soon and may need a switch for drop target 1 as well. Which switch do I need? I took a quick peak and didn't see it listed here, although it probably is. Also checked Scott's site...


#4000 1 year ago

My HUO playfield has multiple areas chipping paint off too.

#4004 1 year ago

Think mine was around 385....mighta been 283 actually. I'll double check when I get a minute....

**confirmed 283**

#4006 1 year ago

Mines doing it on the slingshot posts too, and you can see some of the star posts digging into the art on the reactor playfield as well.

#4008 1 year ago

Charlie has great customer service after the fact and so does Nitro Pinball. Still sucks as doing a swap is a massive task and if I sell it I will take a huge hit, and it will 1000% scare off buyers altogether in the first place...

#4024 1 year ago

Mine didn't have mylar to start. It's not the mylar's fault originally. The mylar was put on by Spooky later in the run to try and stop the problem. It can pull up paint when you try to remove them, if you are having paint chipping issues.

I've also tried using different mylar, and it won't stay very well under the posts, even after applying it and waiting a week plus to play it....

#4030 1 year ago

I know the feels....

#4070 1 year ago
Quoted from atrainn:

Mine is supposed to be delivered today. I'm debating on just installing the neoprene washers immediately.

Nothing to debate, if you saw what my playfield looked like within a week and what it looks like now, you would cry....

#4075 1 year ago
Quoted from atrainn:

Oh no :[. Mind posting pictures? Unless they're earlier in the thread somewhere and I missed it.

It just looks like other pics that are posted here. Paint chips, missing art, multiple spots. At least 5 spots are missing art and chipped now, and you can see where its going to happen in other spots because the paint around the star posts is all bulged up. I'm gonna try these nylon washers, but the damage is done. Gonna need black ones I guess to cover it.

#4177 1 year ago
Quoted from rai:

Don’t know if anyone has seen this happen. I turned off ball save at scoop eject but it still will give a ball save occasionally.

Why would you shut it off?

#4266 1 year ago
Quoted from pinden007:

I think that depends. Some folks on here believe the issue is from game play and the ball banging into the posts - which very well may be. It's my belief that my issue was caused solely by faulty mylar (or whatever they used) around the posts. In the process of it pealing up, it lifted the paint around 1 post. That is the only post I plan on putting a washer on and that is just to protect against it eroding any more even though the ball never appears to roll over it.
Look to see if you have any mylar left around the posts or if it's in the process of pealing or is completely gone. That may determine if you should put anything down in it.

My game didn't come with mylar.

Thanks Scott! #bestkind

#4475 1 year ago

I've played a bunch of games on the new code now. 1 issue I've seen so far is the left sling stuck on for longer than normal...good extra second or 2.

#4477 1 year ago

I've only seen it once in about 10 games. But def an issue as I've seen a few people post about it, and I've never had it happen in over 500games before the code update.

#4485 1 year ago

I'm installing new beta now....

#4489 1 year ago

Do I have the new beta code world record? Mine hasn't done anything strange yet on new beta code. My righthand reactor sling was machine gunning a few times, but it probably just needs a leaf adjustment, one leaf looks like it could be a little to close I suppose.

20190106_145702 (resized).jpg
#4492 1 year ago

Ha 7 reactors is my record on old code. I can play

#4495 1 year ago

On the beta before this I had the left sling stick on like in that video above, not machine gunning. Just to be clear

I'll adjust it and play some more tonight. I haven't had a sling stick on yet with newest beta.

#4501 1 year ago
Quoted from callaway15:

Default settings and outlanes? Wow.

Yep, it's def way above my average game though. I'm no Elwin or Gagno, but I can hang

I think one of the jackpots I got in that game was around 750k...

187500 x 4 balls in play I think it was? I'm not positive on that...it was hectic at that point haha

#4503 1 year ago


#4504 1 year ago

Put up another decent game. No issues noticed yet. The high score sound effects are a nice touch. Also does the reactor change different colors than it did before? I think I'm just looking for bugs so noticing more things, but it went a nice light blue or teal at level 4 or 5...

Easily one of the greatest games I've owned or played. It's been said 100 times, but thanks again Scott!

20190106_161222 (resized).jpg

#4506 1 year ago

Think it does a new sort of white sparkle light effect? I like it

#4507 1 year ago
Quoted from TheNoTrashCougar:

<3 Thank you.
The reactor colors are the same as in previous versions.

I don't get too level 5 that often then obviously lol

#4508 1 year ago

I just had the right lower sling stick on the newest beta....it's not machine gunning. It actually stays energized.

Gotta make dinner now.

#4513 1 year ago
Quoted from callaway15:

I haven't noticed this with mine

Me either.

#4515 1 year ago

Lsst game of the night. I think something needs to be looked at still Scott. I've had the slings machine gun and sometimes stay energized too. Switches are not set super feather tight or anything. Could be mechanical of course, rubbers or switch issue or something too..my beta testing is over for the day, where do I collect my bitcoins?

Which post sleeves does TNA use? They are skinnier than any of the spares I have.

#5149 1 year ago
Quoted from hocuslocus:

those are the slim stern titan rubbers. I took mine out after a couple of months because they were falling apart and replaced them with superband sleeve rubbers. I don't care for superband flipper rubbers, but the post sleeves are fantastic.

Perfect, thanks!!

#5156 1 year ago
Quoted from mackey256:

thenotrashcougar any hope for a rubber kit for TNA on pinball life? I have to replace a few and I'm feeling lazy to the point where I don't want to look everything up. Just clicking add to cart would be awesome....for me lol

Forgot we had this...

Quoted from procks:

Thank you borgdog it does make sense. I just need to find a good video of someone doing the bend so I can mimic it. I'm not sure how to get myself enough room to work under the playfield.
Can anyone point me to the right tool or tools for the job?
BTW what kind of a tool do I need to measure the angle of the playfield/glass? I never did that when I first set it up.


#6033 7 months ago

thenotrashcougar I think when you beat a reactor speed score and are at the initials screen, it should show you what your actual time was. Simple, but would be a nice little add imo

Anyone have experience with the first drop target coil firing during attract mode?

I disconnected/reconnected the purplewire coil connector in the back box and hit the power button on the cpu. Will see if it still happens. Very odd that it would happen in attract mode though?

#6149 6 months ago

The opto for the first ball lock must have been seeing a ball that wasn't there. Gonna clean those. Pertaining to my issue above...

#6152 6 months ago

Ya once I thought about it a bit, I realized it had to be that first opto, I’ll check the connector too

#6155 6 months ago

Probably from a playfield plastic is my wild guess...

#6186 6 months ago

TNA needs less fan noise, not more

#6189 6 months ago
Quoted from Rob-T-800:

That can be solved by replacing the power supply fan with a silent one. This little one would be heard under the glass

I know, just a joke, but the stock fan is loud as F, and the beacon sounds like a rock tumbler too lol. Both can be fixed for sure

Quoted from chrisnack:

Here’s what new code needs. High scores for coop mode. I have a couple of buddies that come over every wed and we play coop mode. It would be nice to track how far we get and have some high scores or something similar to single player.

That's already in there. Think it only keeps track of one score though, if I remember right...

Just made a big Beta update!!! Feel free to try it out and let me know if there are any issues!
Thank you!

Sweet! Thanks Mr. Danesi.

#6398 3 months ago
Quoted from TheNoTrashCougar:

OK the next Beta version is ready for those that want to test (1.4.0.b8). I added another cool lightshow to the attract mode.
As always, please let me know if you see anything weird. Thank you!

Ima install it right now.

#6409 3 months ago
Quoted from TheNoTrashCougar:

So far I have heard no reports of anything wrong with the latest beta! I guess that means I should make a new awesome attract lightshow, add it in, and make a Production release of this version!

Fn hell yes

#6432 3 months ago

I love the ability to change the multiball GI color. Would love to see more colors added there, pink, light purple, etc. You could even randomize it so during the game it picks different colors by itself. It also makes me think that a cool idea would be to have themes. So you pick a color theme/scheme from the menu and it auto selects a blend of colors for the inserts and GI for multiball/regular play etc. Just spitballin.....loving the game still.

#6462 87 days ago

New code always gets me psyched to play. New PB for me on the 1.4 code. Stock settings except I changed multiball to teal.

Quoted from jbigdoggf:

Recently joined the club... I love this game.
Question do you have a pad of black foam under your left scoop ?
I can hit this shot but ball never drops left or right flipper what seems to be right on the money.
Only way it drops is coming out of reactor or a floater that rolls in there.
Wondering if it’s something that was added by previous owner and why.

They would have added it to try and make the ball go in the scoop better. The scoop is notorious for rejects. I always just fire the ball up the left orbit into the reactor when possible, and let it drop in from above...
