It’s just a thing on Pinside. Some people think they know better how to spend your money

Quoted from EightBallTexas:

A few other cool items as well.
xxx a custom autographed bottom arch xxx
Any pictures of the custom autographed bottom arch, is that the signature on the apron?

most call it an apron, stern calls it the bottom arch, i assume. took picture from thread to show area, it's a nicely added touch.

Thanks for the confirmation.

Has it had a rest yet?? or are the dinos roaring??

My delivery has been delayed. It is sitting 5 miles from my home since Fri. but I can't pick it up and they can't deliver it until Tues!

For those who received it... Does the dinosaur throw the ball around? I'm hearing maybe it doesn't even though their marketing video clearly showed it doing that.

Now that's what we call painful.

So close yet so far!!

Because *all* of the dinosaurs in Jurassic Park are female.

I think they said there was a setting to change what the dinosaur does with the ball - either throw it or place it on the wireform.

I've played a number of games now and my TRex puts the ball in the wire form 90% of the time(?). It's hard to get it in the mouth without a direct, hard hit ball, as others have noted. I have everything set on default.

I also find the warm GI to be a bit dark in comparison to my other games, so I may swap them out so it does in better in my personal line up.

Everything else is perfect out of the box.

Here's some pics of my set up and some mods...

WINNER -WINNER!!

Please DM for your prize. lol

I wanted to buy the lock down bar sticker but wanted to see it on green and it looks good. I like the coin door caution stickers .

Did you buy these items from Tilt? I have to have the ramp stickers and the shooter rod cover. I love your toppers....different and fun.

I am going for lighted JP hinges once developed.

So far it's looks great. Good Job.

Yep. I got all three from Tilt (the Pingulp too). And I love doing Funko Pop toppers; I have them on all my machines. A little double-sided-padded tape to mount and a razor blade and alcohol when you want to sell the game...

Great idea. Time to get into the pops. I can always add some led under them. LOL.

The toppers so far are not jumping out to me and that's why my buddy is still working on one for us. Just delayed to a project from one of the movie studios.

What else is in the future for you on MODS??

It needs to be a clean shot but in no way should be "hard". Do you have a video you can post?

There are numerous adjustments both in-menu and physically. You can fine tune the home position bias to make sure it is coming down in the center of the ramp (the last 3 game adjustments are for this)

There is also a physical height adjustment on the vertical motor bracket. The jaw should just barely make contact with the ramp. To test go into diag-game-vertical motor test. Lower the trex to the lowest position. If you hit the start button the jaw will toggle open and close.

If the ball goes into the mouth but doesn't grab try removing the spacers on the clear roof plastic at the front of the ramp. This is there to make sure the ball trips the ramp optic in order to fire the mouth magnet.

#242 delivered and set up in Dickinson, TX today! It was scheduled for a Thursday delivery last week but was delayed due to flooding in Houston. Thankfully it arrived in perfect condition!

To LE owners. How do your posts look?

Are there washers under them? Do you see any pooling or chipping?

Thanks!

No washers, they did a thinner clear coat on the LEs, and I assume will do this for pro/premiums moving forward. Also no art around posts any longer.

#629 1 year ago

And have no pooling or chipping. I will say I have pooling on my POTC, but never noticed until the stuff hit the fan on pinside. It really isn't an issue as mine is so minor.

#630 1 year ago

Can anyone report that they’ve fixed the upper flipper post issue (keeps coming loose)?

#631 1 year ago

I still have no word on my LE and am seeing all these unboxings, super envious.

Quoted from FightNightFZ:

Mine arrived on Fri. at the local destination hub. As of an hour ago, they still haven't unloaded the truck and I don't have a delivery appointment!

You and me both brother. Ordered on day one. Nothing.

Mines getting delivered tomorrow!!!!

#635 1 year ago

For those of you wondering if the MezelMods Raptor Pit mod will fit the LE....it does not appear to fit correctly right now.

The back pair of fence posts contact the raptor toy and impede its movement (w/ or w/o the included aluminum fence wires). Also, the left raptor pen mod does not quite match up with the screw in the plastic.

I've got a support request in w/ Kristin right now.

That's a bummer! My mod arrived today in anticipation of my LE arriving on Wednesday. Please keep us updated with Tim/Kristen's response, whether we have to return the mod or not. Thanks!

Game settings in the upper 30’s

#640 1 year ago

So finally got home from my work trip and got it set up... cannot explain how awesome it is! I must have an anomaly as well with auto plunge working 100% of the time so far, manual plunge no problem, and my t-Rex grabs the ball every time. Had some ricochet from the upper flipper and still grabbed them up. I’m sure I’m jinxing myself now, but so far, so good and I’m loving it!

Hi Neighbor!!

#642 1 year ago

Does the helicopter blade spin on its own or from the photos it looks like it’s just like a spinner which the ball needs to make contact with the blade to make it to spin?

I swear from the original promotional video I had thought that it’s spinned without the ball having to make contact with it.

#643 1 year ago

I’m getting very close to securing an LE.
For new owners of LEs, just a few clarifying questions:
Is the upper flipper post now fixed tight & staying on secure (ie- not loosening up)?
Also do your LEs have the new installed pf with No art around the sling shot posts?

Game looks amazingly fun and just so close to pulling the trigger.
Thanks for any clarifications.

It only spins when the ball hits it.

My machine is #242 and the artwork is relieved around the posts. No observable playfield issues here.

Have you confirmed this on Jurassic Park? When I look under the “adjust” settings none of the setting in the 30s have any mention of free play.

#647 1 year ago

Gotfrogs: Thanks for the confirmation.
Are you finding that the upper flipper post is secured very firmly & not loosening during gameplay?

#648 1 year ago

JMK - I pressed on it when I unpacked the game and it seemed fine. I have only played a dozen games but it seem secure to me.

Thanks for posting this, I really want this mod, but my Premium is on order... Hope they can adjust it to fit the Prem/LE versions
