Quoted from knockerlover:

Alien B, and C all have teardrop shape left ramp inlane returns ball drop.
Alien A, has a circle shape drop but the artwork is still teardrop shape.

Can you tell us what date is on each one of the three pins, as far as build?
Seems like the earlier editions have had more issues than the later built ones.

Quoted from knockerlover:

Brett, do you know where to find the build date? I wasn't able to find anything on the cabinet decals or on the playfield.

On mine it’s on the bottom of playfield. It’s a sticker dated 13-9-17 initialed by HEL with PA-0045 as serial number.

Quoted from Astropin:

So I definitely have a hybrid compared to your A,B&C. According to Heighway my game was "production game #20".
Like your game A it has:
The "open" PC with plexiglass cover
DVI connected playfield screen
The IO boards are all blue
A sticker on the back indicating that it's an SE with a serial number
Unlike your game A mine has:
All "Heighway" labeled main boards
The main trunk runs up the middle (vs right side)
Older single Xenomorph board
So how many variations are there?

Mine is exactly like yours. Do you have the January 2018 updated code?
I read that some can’t update, fortunately mine has the updated code.

Quoted from JoinTheCirqus:

Question for you guys: what shaker motor is compatible with Alien? I Thought it might be from Cointaker, but I’m going on 11 days with no answer from them via multiple inquiries - so I have no idea.

Michael I have Coin takers in mine. Melissa usually responds within a couple of days.
Did you email or call her?

#208 1 year ago
Quoted from JoinTheCirqus:

2 phonecalls leaving VM
2 “service tickets” through their website
2 emails directly to Melissa

Wow, you can’t do anything more than that.

I ordered Invisiglass from her a while ago, communicated with her two weeks ago, and she said she’d send it. I haven't seen it yet.

My 10” LCD screen isn’t working. It has power going to it.

I’m sure it’s been discussed on previous posts. Does anyone know where to purchase a new one?

Quoted from knockerlover:

Before replacing it, the LVDS cable inside is notorious for coming unseated. There are four screws that hold the entire assembly to the underneath of the playfield. Remove those and the cables, then you can remove the display from the housing and inspect the cable connectivity and reseat. Be gentle, it's fragile (crap).
If you need a replacement, you can order them from AliExpress.

Thank you for letting me know. Hopefully it just needs reseated.
