Joined on the weekend, TF Pro. She's quick and lots of shots to hit. Needs a light to medium cleaning, excited to get more games in.

Quoted from mrm_4:

Hooked up a Polk 10” subwoofer to mine this weekend. Love hearing the chopper on Blackout mode.
Also you are right bobcade the Ironhide playfield is sweet if you adjust the setting to begin with the mini playfield switch. The LE gets so much hate for that upper playfield but I love it.
Got the Tilt Graffic blades for it too. I think my next mod is gonna be under cabinet lighting.
All hail Megatron!!!

Did you do any other adjustments like add in a crossover or anything? Or did you just swap out to a better sub?
I love the call outs and sound effects, would like it to have more "depth" to it with better audio

Hey folks, question. Anyone tried to bring down the intensity of the awful pulsating flashing during gameplay?

I had the same problem with my BW with the GI flashing during gameplay, it was absolutely interfering with trying to focus

I doubt it, but it doesn't hurt to hit the bumpers while in a mode, - doesn't the timer stop while in there until it passes back through the switch on way out?

#709 2 years ago

I bought my pro a couple months ago, I have gravitated to it a lot more than my others lately, I really love hitting the shots.

Tossed the speaker light kit in this afternoon, love it! It calls to put the acrylic symbol in front of the speaker grills but I like them better in behind where you see the silhouette of the auto it and deception logos. Totally happy

TF Pro come original with the amber/orange DMD?

Mine has a Red DMD, looks great and fits the theme nicely, I just didn’t know what was stock.

#746 1 year ago

Anybody want to trade me a colordmd straight up for my imamaculate redDMD?

#750 1 year ago

Anyone know where to find cliffy's for the TF? I cant seem to

Quoted from HIPPY:

I just installed a full set on mine. Go to Cliffys site, Passion for Pinball. He stays behind. 2 hole protectors,outhole protector,eject protector, & shooter lane. You got to modify the Megatron. There is a post on this. I had to cut 1 side off on mine, but, they sure are nice.

I see no Transformers on Cliffys site, looked three times today. I'm on this page http://www.passionforpinball.com/protectors.htm

#754 1 year ago
Quoted from HIPPY:

Does anybody know where to get a set of plastics protectors? Tried Pinbits, several months, no response. This game really needs them.

I finally found them in the "See whats New" link

Quoted from cpr9999:

Mines got one and the total was closer to 650$ Cad before it gets here. Well worth it best mod ever.

The price tag stops me

Quoted from SpinnerAddict:

Joined the club today. Im really liking the game so far. I did notice the car gets stuck about halfway sometimes. Is this normal? Someway to fix it? Other than that game is playing fast and im having fun.

Never had mine stop. might have to check it out and see if something hanging it up.

#838 11 months ago

I find my TF to be one of the darkest in middle of PF if my pins also

#842 10 months ago

If take that pop apart, under it, there is a spoon looking cup that the bottom of the pop “skirt” pokes into, the spoon maybe dirty enough or have a mark in it that is holding the skirt down, these pops get ALOT of use on TF. Far the most of my pins, I have all the parts to rebuild my three here soon. I would rebuilt them periodically.

#860 9 months ago

Only take you two mins to tear it down. Just use the others for reference. They come apart from the bottom anyway, get a Q rip with alcohol to rub the spoon piece, while your at at, change the sleeve in the coil anyway, probably been hammered quarter million times at least!

Big shop out tonight!! Might take me two nights. This thing is Joe Dirte!

Adding the cliffys I’ve had for a year and a half while I’m at it. Clean the black filth, new sleeves and such in what needs it, clean up the pops, they get so much action. Rebuild the flippers, change the balls, some titan rubber.

P.S- what a fuckin nightmare to shop

#894 3 months ago

Anyone have their pics of adding their cliffys?

I have like 7 pieces. Feel like a dumbass, don’t know where most of them go. Anyone snap pics as they were adding theirs? I’ll also when I get them in...

Thx in advance

#896 3 months ago

I got the Megatron, all spark big ones.

Now I still have all these!!

Quoted from Trekkie1978:

Top one is mylar for the all spark shot. It goes on the area that is just wood grain to help protect the clear coat.
Next one goes on right side of shooter lane.
Square with 3 screws goes on the underside of the All Spark shot where the ball sits. The washer is for that switch, to help it clear that protector.
Under that one is for the drain.
Bottom 2 are for shooter lane.
Check out Pinball Supernova YouTube. He goes over how the cliffys get installed.
Look at pics for Batman 66, to see how the square one with 3 screws gets installed and where the washer goes.

Yeah, thx a lot!. I've been sniffing through cliffys site looking at a couple newish stern pins. I think I got the shooter lane area figured.

TRANSFORM!!! Blak, blak, blak...blak!!!!
Well, don’t want to rip this bitch apart again, ever..wow.
Flippers rebuilt. Pops rebuilt, yokes broke, sleeves fucked. All cliffys installed.
Needed it....BAD. Added some glass sealer foam piece in the all spark, hoping it will help out with balls coming right back out
Cleaned, waxed three coats, new balls.

She’s all shorn you’re and ready to flip.
Check out, the translight has never been off glass, was black between them.

Quoted from HIPPY:

Good looking game. Flippers work a lot on this one. Doubt if I will ever let mine go.

The audits had the flippers at like 135,000 shots. Ballparking that number. 1300+ games
2300 centre drains alone. That’s only 1.5 year, I did a clear 1 year ago in september.

Quoted from stoptap:

It’s interesting hearing those combo scores. I checked and they are on Premium/LE’s. The right ramp shot on the Pro is killer.

I brick my right ramp shot on my pro A LOT

#918 54 days ago
Quoted from stoptap:

I don’t think the layout is a problem. I enjoy the shots on the game and like the random nature of the Optimus Prime ramp shot.
I think it needs a code revisit though. There are just so many basic things missing. The spinner is practically pointless.

Yeah, spinner attains an EB, is you can light it, prob the least EB’s in all of my games is TF

Also, super spinner! Although I do like the voice call and the spinner sound.
