Quoted from Dias:

Hello, rarely i can go to the far snake chest, i changed the springs, the tube, but still very hard to send to the upper one. Does anyone have some solutions? thanks.

It's worth checking alignment of the metal skill shot piece as well. The mounting points have some front-to-back adjustment available. If it's all the way forward, sometimes the ball will hit the metal by the closest hole and not reach the back.

Be careful touching the Apron metal.... it's a metal yellow anodized finish that is impossible to restore if your finger prints oxidize it significantly. (I am told you can't get that kind of finish in the USA any longer due to some chemical hazard issues with the OSHA folks). If your apron does get significantly tarnished, you'll be sanding the whole thing, and painting it some flavor or sunburst gold, baking it a bit to get a hard surface, and then hopefully getting a cut vinyl scroll-work decal applique from Treasure Cove (if he still makes them) to apply.

Just picked up my first TOTAN and I’ve been working through it, was untouched not even powered on in about 7 years.

One issue I’m a bit stumped on is the right orbit. Switch works in test and in game play it makes the sound, but when Ball Lock or Extra Ball is lit, magnet doesn’t stop ball and extra ball never registers. Is this possibly a magnet issue? Thoughts?

Update- I found a loose wire on the right captive ball, fixed it and my problem was also fixed. After a power cycle problem with orbit came right back! Ugh.

Any ideas?

Is anyone interested on the Arabian Nights topper, used but in good condition and 100% working? Am thinking in to sell it
( i live in France, but i can ship worldwide ).

#2357 66 days ago

Just making sure.
Since everything seems to be working fine, I suspect all these unplugged molex connectors Are just unused. First time lifting up the playfield on this one.
Thanx

I have the same unplugged molex connectors on my Totan. Would be interested to know why they are there.

It was a Brilliant idea from Bally/Williams to waste wire and costs.
The idea was that a WPC95 wire Harness could be used for many games. Creating an all in 1 wire harness was an idea to make manufacturing cheaper(Huhh?) and faster.
Not a bad idea, but in the long run it was.

Nice upgrade. Mine had a brass-colored lamp that I added jewels to.

I finished this restoration a few months ago.
I restore most machines for others...but this one is mine and a keeper.
I also purchased the Forgotten Tales kit at TPF...but do not have it going yet.
Enjoy!

They look like Radcals. I put them on mine also. Glossy!

I have never seen the skeleton bed of nails in your picture. Where did you find that?

Totally with you on that!

#2371 56 days ago

I’m thinking of recreating the mod from scratch. The platform and spikes are a pretty easy 3d modeling tasks. The skeleton, thinking might be able to find a small toy version and do a little air brush treatment. Thoughts ulmpharmd

#2372 56 days ago

I have a papo skeleton we can likely use that would work

#2373 56 days ago

I order these little guys from eBay I think for a couple bucks each. They come in handy for pinball mods with many themes (Elvira, CSI, TWD, BSD, etc). Only bummer is they ship from China and take several weeks to arrive.

Sign me up if you do - I would love to have that mod too.

#2377 56 days ago

Well Jjlp if you look at the rib cage and head, I’d bet they are pretty close in size…? the skeleton on that mod is pretty big. Call me crazy

#2379 56 days ago

That’s the one previous owner had on the game I just got. Works well

#2380 55 days ago

it covers the ramp diverter coil on the top

#2382 53 days ago

I’m looking for the cobra plastic that goes on the light housing at the top of the skill shot. Anybody got an extra they are willing to part with ? Thanks in advance.

1st pass on the wood plank modeling for the bed of spikes. Im not crazy about how this turned out…
1. Need less topology (needs to be flatter)
2. Separation between boards need to be larger
3. Paint tones need adjusting
4. Don’t skew the planks, they should all be equal width and straight

K first prototype. Came out pretty good. I don't think it's as nice as the other one I have seen, but it's pretty cool. ALSO, it's interactive LOL. I had an idea that maybe if the skeleton's leg hung at the right angle the ball could hit his foot and "bump" his leg. It worked perfectly and its kinda funny when the ball hits his foot.

#2391 44 days ago

Thanks everyone. I will keep you all posted. It will be a little bit. Unfortunately I’m handling a family emergency. I at least wanted to reply and thank you for support and I hope to make some of these soon!

Congrats. To me, TOTAN is one of the most beautiful and fun games to play. What are your plans? You gonna add some mods or keep it original?

The game already came with some mods:
-Pinball Pro speakers (all 3 of them)
-Side art
-Full led: Not a fan, they're too bright in person so will change out a few. Also for gi some are incandescent bulbs and some are leds, but the used leds are not frosted or anything.
-Lock hole is lit up
-Bazar scoop is lit up
-Genie has leds behind his eyes, but that mod does not work at the moment.

The only mod I could think of right now (apart from changing some leds) is a LCD ColorDMD, that would look amazing
Also: What is the latest software version? I read somewhere that a Pinside member is making a homemade version, is that available somewhere?

Ad a COLOR DMD LED it's amazing! Game changing, and the colorization is really beautiful! And doesn't have tons of blue except for the genie . the pin2dmd is full of blue colors and it's not really amazing.

#2400 35 days ago

Hey folks! Update on the bed of nails

So I made a bit of a measurement mistake and thus I have 5 sets up for grabs at 40% off. These ones the leg will not connect with the ball and move. However, they look every bit as good visually.

His leg is bent and slightly hangs but will not hit the ball. It does not detract from the much improved presentation over the stock plastic.
————————
So what’s the price on these?

The price is going to be $99.00, but these 5 will be 60.00 (40% off). This includes the Skelton, bed of nails and new painted screws as well for a nice “seamless” install visually. Pm me if your interested in the half off model! Also will provide a link for online instructions
