All is well so far on my LE, no issues other than me sucking at the game but I like learning the rules from scratch rather than read them all right away. But it is a blast to shoot and looks amazing.

Hey has anyone noticed the metal helicopter blades hitting the metal rail there and if so any solution. I didn't really notice it until it got wedged while I was playing once and when I went in and manually tested it it grazes the metal rail over and over. i'm a little hesitant to bend or twist it cause it seems like it is made to be evenly weighted

So there is no code to download on Stern's website for the LE or readme? Is everyone else on version 0.89.0 that received the LE?

Confirming as well on final high scores any high score achieved beyond a main one has no sound effects or music while it is showing them?

On a personal note I don't love the match sequence I would rather see like a spitter animation, could be cool or T-Rex chomping or something a little more exciting than the egg turning. Also really very few Nedry call outs other than when you hit it in the right outlane, hoping they work more of those into the game itself.

Quoted from OLDPINGUY:

Not a bad thing to say, except Im changing that 8 smd Light up by the spiral that shines on the tower....Terrible Bulb choice!

I agree, do tell what your thoughts are for better one there?

Bad news, my moving T-Rex head has broken already. It happened the 2nd game after I updated the code so I was hoping it was code related but have not heard anyone else reporting an issue so appears it is mechanical. I probably only have 50-100 games on it or so overall. It made a horrible clicking/grinding sound sound and then was stuck in place. I'll be in contact with Stern to see about what needs fixed. Hope this mech holds up long term and is not a constant issue, hopefully just bad luck.

#1280 5 months ago
Quoted from EaglePin:

Where did it get stuck? I noticed last night on mine that when it did its new moves while holding the ball it was coming really close to hitting the wire form from the left ramp. It was just BARELY high enough to clear it while it moved around, but one time it was low enough that it hit it and seemed to be stuck for a second. It didn’t start grinding but I was reaching for the power switch when it freed itself. It always raised to the right height to place the ball on the wire, but the movement before that was usually really low and almost colliding with it.

I guess "stuck" wasn't the right word, it isn't stuck anywhere or got stuck on anything it just won't move anymore. When it failed it was to the left side made the crazy noises then just stopped working.

Quoted from hawkmoon77:

Sorry to hear that. Do you have any pictures of the mech where it's damaged? I'd be curious to see what the weakest link was, in your case. It might be a good place for everyone to monitor.

I haven't even looked yet to be honest, happened late last night, I shut it off and contacted Stern to hopefully dig in with them later today when I get home from work. I'll definitely advise once I have a better picture of what it was or if there was a cause, why it happened.

Quoted from iceman44:

I would check to make sure wiring didn’t get tangled up around the mech

That’s what happened to me on BM66

Ya so a less than thrilling end to my Trex head having a problem. I tested it multiple times thru menu, wan't working. Got Chas from Stern on the phone and got into the back of the machine. Nothing popped out to me at all as tangled or loose but I did fidget with some wires and whatnot and then of course it was working again as I was talking to Chas. So, got me, maybe was a wire binding something up or a loose connection or something but all seems good again.

Did anyone order the Tilt topper?

Ya it looks great, I got the "LE style" with the added green.

Quoted from MrMikeman:

So am I the only one who opened the goodie bag? Everybody I know seems to leave them stapled in the machine and even buying another manual so as not to open the bag.. Really??

I've never actually paid MORE for a used game just because the bag was still there.. And in Canada with the exchange rate and taxes I paid nearly $14k for my LE which was my first NIB. No way I'm letting someone else get the goodies!! Bag removed and opened. Plus I want the key fobs for my keys anyway.

Was that a bad thing??

$5K by Christmas!
Call it absurd, as I truly believe it is as well, but I have had multiple buyers that wouldn't pay my price being goodie bag was removed from the cabinet on a newer game being one of their reasons. My personal opinion is I don't even want to deal with those people and honestly it helps weed out someone I probably prefer not to deal with anyway. But it does matter to some. I typically just leave mine there now cause most everything in them isn't something I even care about anyway.

First thing I noticed after the update is my glass and game are now rattling way worse. I don't know if they upped the base or shaker motor usage or something but never was like that before. Anyone else notice that? Guess I'm gonna have to quake proof it, I usually like a little rattle but it is way too extreme right now.

#3139 4 months ago
Quoted from kermit24:

I am sure there are other places, but you need this.


Oh I ordered it yesterday, again I like a little glass rattling but after this update for some reason the rattling is WAY more extreme and to the point it is interfering. I played a ton of games on previous codes and had my game for awhile, always have bass pumped up and shaker on max and it was not like that before the update, very strange.

Quoted from EaglePin:

Nice! I dialed my upper right flipper back more than I guessed I would.

What do you have your flippers set at for all of them? I get a ton of rattled balls as well, figured it was mostly my bad shooting but maybe this will help a little.

Quoted from crwjumper:

I noticed for the first time a black and white picture sitting next to Nedry's computer of Keith Elwin smoking a pipe. Seemed to be a random occurrence. Is this new with this code?

Nope always been there
