Hi all I have just purchased The Walking Dead Pro version and when I got it home and lifted up the playfield to check it out, to my dismay, I dropped it into the cabinet due to the useless design of the Stern factory "slides"?! How frustrating and scary was that?! Anyway, after picking the playfield back up and putting it gently back into place with no damage thank goodness, I got to thinking has anyone attempted to retrofit the good old reliable Williams slide and locks to a modern games that don't have them? I would love to know if anyone has done anything along these lines.
As an aside to the above, I am disappointed in a few aspects of the newer games, well my TWD at least. What a shame there is only a single old manky flouro in the backbox, how boring is that? No possibility to do any mod to it, or light it up and make it pop with LED's. And also with the pro, no long metal slides to rest the playfield on. Just 2 metal rods with rubber stoppers!! Another dangerous improvement no doubt included to cut costs!!
(I linked Twilight Zone cause it has a great locking system for the playfield when it is up to be worked on.)
