Hello, any suggestions where to buy a velociraptor figure for the rear of the raptor pen mod? Thank you!
Hello, joining the Premium club very soon. Just awaiting shipment delivery. I’ve read some of the recent posts, but not all of them. Anything out of the box I should be aware of that needs adjustment? Thank you!
Just unboxed my JP Premium and played 50+ games. No Playfield clear coat issues anywhere. Also T-Rex works perfect and is amazing, especially when you have an external subwoofer connected. Wow! That T-Rex is amazing. Shots are smooth and the combos are endless. This game truly has staying power!!! The code seems pretty deep too, which is great for the home environment. Last thing, the metal Handle on the playfield backboard is awesome for lifting and maneuvering the Playfield. I don’t think Stern has ever done that before?? Nice touch!
So, I see the raptor behind the raptor pen has a spring below it. Is that raptor supposed to move? Mine is just stationary. I don’t ever notice it moving. Am I missing something?? Thanks fellas.
Quoted from fooflighter:
It's not a spring, it's a bunch of weights on a screw post that weights the tail of the raptor down.
A ball hitting the plate in the raptor pit "punches" the plate under the tail and kicks the raptor forward then the weights help return it to the start position.
Try it with the glass off ( you should be able to move the Raptor by hand freely) and launch some balls into the pit by hand...you should see the raptor lunge forward...it's a quick lunge and needs the weight and speed of the ball to deflect the plate...it's all physical reaction, not a solenoid movement
If not...it make be stuck on the plastic ball deflector, or the Raptor hind leg screw/nut may be too tight preventing movement...I actually took the washer out of my Raptor leg assembly to help the Raptor move more easily (there's a post and groove track in the Raptors leg's the washer was allowing the post to come out of the track), and loosened the stack of weights screw on the tail to allow the random weight movement to assist the return travel and also prevent the tip of the rod holding the weights from getting stuck on the plastic...now it's super speedy
Okay. Thank you!!
Has anyone tried replacing the raptor with a better looking one? Like the one modfather sells? The current raptor seems really small and kinda cheap and doesn’t really do much anyways. Thanks!!
So I experimented with many different flipper strength settings. I now have both the lower flippers at 225 and the upper flipper at 220. Wow! What a difference in the ability to hit the shots! Give it a try. .
