Guys I just got my parts from Cliffy. I can tell you right now...This is saving Mirco from the wraith of CHKN. (LOL - just joking). That said...Cliffy's flipper rails has saved it for me. I can now play with no ball hop!! The ball travels up and down the rail without any hitch and it's made it buttery smooth again. The gap is better, it's not resolved....but I didn't have to drill and it is enjoyable and playable now, maybe I'll move them down a little later...but I doubt it and it's not affecting gameplay. I love the game. I'll attach some photos below for you to gaze at of the new enhanced Cliffy flipper rails. Great customer service as usual from him.
Quoted from Chalkey:
He's been kicked in the face on this forum for the last year about his playfield quality issues, the John Greatwich thing, etc. You think he cares about one guy's sorcerer?
If he was the kind of guy who cared about his reputation or his customers he certainly could have responded to my messages. I've been dealing with this for over 2 years and it's always the same. Dodge, divert, and when he's in a corner just stop responding entirely. He has my plastics (which I need to complete this project one way or another) and another playfield he's holding hostage that he's had since (I think) 2018. He has every opportunity to make it right should he choose. Hell, he could at least make it *decent* if he can just give me a rundown of what holes are not correct.
Anybody tried clear pop bodies or anything funky on this game? Thought I'd clean mine up but they're pretty beat so I'm going to order new.
Chalkey, maybe he cares about two peoples sorcerers? I doubt it....he stopped responding to me as well, doesn't email me back etc. Honestly, I don't care anymore, my machine rocks and it's his mirco playfield. I worked through the weird issues and it plays just like my old one did. the geometry seems fine and the ones that were off a little I fixed. I love it. I don't love the playfied or his customer service, and it will be my last Mirco field for sure. Don't even care what he releases at this point. His teams lack of care/customer service/quality product...blah blah. I'm done. Like you said, if he'd just release an email stating here are the incorrect measurements...I'd even be good with an admission of that and here's my recommendation to fix it! Regardless, it's a beautiful field.
I've not tried the clear pops, sounds fun! I went with white. Over the next couple days I'll get photos of the finished product and post for ya'll here! My recommendation...move forward with the Mirco field since you own it already, and if you need help, post here or send me a DM I will help let you out with what I did etc.IMG-5955 (resized).jpgIMG-5957 (resized).jpg
