Quoted from Kkoss24:

Looks great !! Are those custom or purchased mod ?

Not custom. Perfect add-on.

Quoted from Kkoss24:

Really like how that color scheme looks .Do the colors rotate Or are they stationary ?Pardon for all the questions I like it a lot !

Colors rotate, can change the scheme etc. Full remote to do whatever you desire. Still haven't fully figured it out as to what all it can do. Just adds to the whole background. For 90.00 or so bucks, hard to beat

I have lights like that on my MET, but I might need to look into that for the IMDN... your pic looks cool!

Thanks Chris. I would definitely pick some up for your IMDN. Hell, I'll come over and install them since I owe you a favor

How about some mummy speaker acrylics? Not a big fan of the 2 styles available.

#7606 8 days ago

This is prob true on most pons not playing a bunch of games today on IM I noticed the top half of pf is hard to see. Looks like it’s glare from back box. I put a bent plastic from my Williams pins. Anyone else solve glare issue ?

You can turn down the backbox brightness in the menu. I have mine set to 15 or 20 during gameplay.

I did the flaming speaker light mod on my IMLE today. I think I’ll keep it.

New Titans and new balls. Think I'm finally done modding this machine. Well, besides playing around with a topper. I'll be reaching out shortly to anyone that inquired about the Pharaoh piece, not going to print very many of them as they are a pain.

I’m getting Yellow ring. I have the Premium.

Quoted from mbott1701:

I did, but didn’t like it and removed it. I had my shooter lane dialed in as far as auto launch making it around the loop. After I installed the protector auto launch was hitting the post sleeve again about 50%.

Is this the one you bought? It kind of seem slice this was meant for a game that a shooter lane feeds a split fork type ramp.
Anyone else have a shooter lane protector from Mezel/PU-Parts on their game?

I'm also a little thrown off by the the two plastic pins with the adhesive edge. I assume this is to secure it like the flake of tape on other models?

My IM came with damaged undercab lighting. I need the 4 foot section and somehow need to elbow it to the back section of the undercab. I contacted Rock Lighting but looks like he is not responding.

Anyone know what 4 foot section I need and how I can connect?

Congrats! I just did the same at the start of November, also with an IMDN Premium. Yeah, I waited to see GnR but I bought an IMDN Premium instead. I love the game, what can I say?

#7629 4 days ago

Tried ordering IMDN from my distro and was told that it's been discontinued

I knew I should've got it instead of DP earlier this year, but hindsight is 20/20. Went with TMNT instead.

I will join this club at some point, once people start tiring of it and sell it 2nd hand!

I don't recall Stern ever issuing a "final call" for it, did they? Maybe it'll end up back on the line in the future.

Told this by whom? As far as anyone i know is saying they are still planning to run Maiden in 2021. There is just a huge backorder list of Stern titles right now. Cant get a JP or EHOH nib right now to save a life.

Maybe it was an assumption on his part then. I guess Stern sent out what they plan to produce for the next 6-8 months and IMDN was nowhere on the list.

Happy Thanksgiving guys! I have an issue that's never came up for me before. At the start of the game, I am able to change songs with the flipper buttons, but that's the only time during the game. At the beginning of every other ball, when I try to change the song with the flipper button, it just raises the score every time I hit the flippers. Any ideas? Thanks

Yep - the Stern distributer here in Australia basically said it was end of the licence and they won't be manufacturing any more (at least not for the foreseeable future). So I literally nabbed the last premium order available - it arrived with the distro on Monday, so it gets here next week! Woo hoo!

If it’s a premium ,Your leaf switch on orb shot needs adjusting .Keeps making contact that’s why the score bumps up .

Not being able to change the song between balls - that's the feature I want Keith to bring back!!! It used to be an option.

#7637 3 days ago

It still is an option. You have a switch issue.

If you're responding to me, Id like to know how to turn that option on, because it looked like they removed it in the latest code.

While they did remove that option, they made it more of a hybrid all in one. Don’t do anything and the song keeps playing just as if you had the option previously. Or, you can change songs.

That's not hybrid because you can accidentally hit the flippers and change the song. Seems stupid to actually remove the option of keeping it the same.

Yeah, lamest code change for the game. Accidentally changing songs sucks big time. It would be nice if you could turn it off in the service menu.

Im having problems with my left outer orbit registering. I bought the Pinball Life opto fix and they have been working for awhile. The Problem seems to be the 2nd opto not registering the shot as I get the sound effect when it passes through the first one. Whenever I hand feed the loop it registers every time, Whenever I flip it or plunge it mechanically it does not register at all. I have cleaned the optos and reseated the plastic angle. Still nothing.
Any Ideas as to why this is happening?

Did you try reseating the connectors to the opto board itself?

#7644 3 days ago

I have
it reads the right orbit every time
its just the left outer does not register unless i manually feed the ball

#7645 3 days ago

its so bizarre
just played a game where 0% of the left orbit shots registered
every other orbit did
took the glass off and manually fed the left outer orbit 100% of the shots registered.
kept the glass off played a game 0% shots registered whether by auto plunge or flipper
manually all shots registered. some I did fast, some slow
it makes no sense

#7646 3 days ago

When I put it in switch test the 2 optos and roll over switches all register every single time
whether manually, flipped, or autoplunge

I'd slo-mo record with your phone if you can get a shot of the opto area, then keep firing the ball from the flipper into that orbit while recording and see if the slow mo shows you what's happening. It's a great diagnostic tool.

#7648 3 days ago

Ive done slo mo with the manual feed and the flipper feed
both look the same and ball is where it should be in its travel
same results
in switch test all three register whether its manual or flipper/plunge fed

Try covering the bottom half of the face of the opto circle around the actual sender/receiver with electrical tape. Not more, try not to do less, but half. Basically cut a piece of electrical tape lengthwise and wrap it around the opto. Do the outside one first. Make sure the pair still works in switch test mode then see if that does it for the fast balls. If not, try doing the inside one of the opto pair, too.
