I like the playfield part, but the backbox... Why the backbox is amazing?

I agree. Lit playfield looks nice but that backbox color-puke is ... not great.

Maybe not the blue, but I like the boulders kind of pop out in places.

Finally, after 8 or 9 years of trying to find one I joined the club!

Looking forward to restoring this when work slows down

Trying to provide arms for my poor bigfoot. No idea why they are missing. Can someone please take a pic with his arms extended so I can see how/where they are connected to him? His body fur looks fine, no holes or anything, so I can't tell how I would attach them even if I find a close match for the fur.
Thanks!

The arms are empty fur glued to the hands and then the shoulders

So they are just glued to the fur near the shoulder? I was wondering how mine doesn't have damage to the fur in that area where it would have been connected.

No the wires run to the Gi beside it and plug into the socket via a connection LED

Alfacjack...

I prefer my original looking; dark mountain boulders, dark harry brown Big Foot, Hot Summer canyon white water rafting theme.

Pinball mods & preferences are like choosing cars: Some like white Mustangs with blue stripes, while other prefer blue ones with white stripes (like me).

Enjoy your game, you modded the way you like it!

#6121 2 years ago

Are you using some kind of new material for those translucent flipper bats? I ask because I've never seen those hold up for very long even in home use, every set I've ever tried crack.

Quoted from bobukcat:

Good question: there is a strong material incorporated into the construction. I've thought about making a video with a sledge hammer or such comparing a regular flipper to one of these to show the strength in the design.

What settings is everyone using for their GI and LED OCD boards?

Be curious to see how others have theirs configured.

#6129 2 years ago

I have both and just installed them, so stock settings

Hello there I’m still on with tracking down parts for a scratch build, I’m kidding myself that I’m not doing to bad!, currently on the look out for the wire form ramps? I need both of them 12-7044 wire ramp shoot (RHS play field) & 12-7049 ball guide (Top RHS) I’ve got 12-7063
If you’ve got any spares please give me a shout
Thanks Tony

Close to stock settings. From what I remember, the very low end of the dimming spectrum my LEDs were off or barely visible so I tuned it upwards just a little bit. A lot of this depends on what kind of LEDs you are putting in there to begin in with though.

These are tough to find. I would look into having them made. There are a couple guys on pinside making wire ramps.

I have both boards using stock settings. Comet 1smd bulbs inserts and 2smd for gi with custom lighting. Looks fantastic. No harm in playing with the software to see what you like.

If a ball gets hit into the lost mines scoop it will sometimes not be detected. I think I figured out that it is going up the tunnel just a little bit and getting hung up on the kicker. The ball search will eventually fire the coil, and the ball will fall into the correct spot.

Have you guys run into this before? Any ideas on how to prevent this?

You should be able to adjust the vertical positioning of the coil with the screws that bolt it to the bracket.
I believe that they are slotted so that the coil (and therefore it's plunger) can be lowered a bit.

If that is not possible, you could also try bending the bottom part of the bracket down a bit, so the plunger sits lower.

Yes, that. I had the same issue with mine, it took forever screwing with it, but you have to get the coil/plunger/cup lower. I was unsuccessful so eventually I took the rubber bumper off the coil stop, and replaced it with a 2mm thin piece of sticky backed rubber I had laying around... Problem gone. You can get away with just removing the stop, but you will hear the plunger clunk when it drops back down.

The adjustment screws were not enough. But bending the bracket did the trick. Thanks!

I am planning to switch my WH20 to LEDs soon. I know that to retain the GI fading effects that I will need the GI OCD board.

But if I want to use this board, do I have to also buy/use the LED OCD board as well?

Buying both boards, along with the LEDs themselves, will make this a very costly operation. Can I install the GI OCD now and add the LED OCD board later if I feel it is needed?

Thanks.

You can totally add in the other board later. The two can be installed independently. I have both on my machine and I think they are definitely worth it. But you can totally gauge it for yourself. What you'll notice without the LED OCD board is that the inserts will be very sharply on or off, that nice fade in and fade out is what the board will add for you. The nice thing is that if you go to sell, you could take the boards out if you wanted to keep them for something else (assuming it's the same WPC era machine). If I had to pick only one of the boards, I would do the GI OCD board for Whitewater.

I also highly recommend LED OCD, as it makes some of the lightshows (Specifically the whirlpool lightshow where the lights spin around the playfield) look a lot smoother! Without it you can kind of see the "frames" of the lightshows if that makes any sense. GI OCD is definitely the more important upgrade on this game though.

Also remember to get standard ghosting LEDs for any circuit you plan on putting an OCD board on. The OCD board eliminates ghosting and non-ghosting LEDs won't give you the full range of brightness standard LEDs do, which is especially important for the GI effects. That said, if you plan on just starting with GI OCD, you'll be probably be fine with inserts having non-ghosting LEDs even if you later upgrade to LED OCD. The difference with those probably won't be too noticeable compared the the GI.

#6141 2 years ago

Thanks for the info guys. I will probably start with the GI-OCD board, and then if needed add the LCD-OCD board later.

Like other said, they work independently so that's not a problem. I don't think it will look good, though. You will still need to disable fade effects and power saving mode in the game since the inserts will not be able to fade. Non ghosting bulbs might help but then you will not be able to use those with the led ocd board if you decide to get it later. I see it as a whole package - both boards and regular quality leds. It does add up but delivers the best result with zero issues.

Power issue!!! Need help!

I had an electrician come through and wire up the garage in the house so I can get my pinballs up and going. Told him I wanted a separate line and gave him the power needs for White Water. Unfortunately, he changed the plug to this and added this because he thought this would make sure I didn't have any power issues.

Next day, went into the garage, turned it on, heard a loud pop, and then it shut off. I saw that he switched the plugs. I switched it back to the normal plug but now I can't turn it on. I've never dealt with a power issue, was going to start poring through the threads, but hoping someone might know what to test or what to look for. I checked all the fuses and they seemed fine. I saw this burnt spot on the J121 connector. Not sure if that was always there?

Anyone able to help save my White Water?

GI lights - not your main problem - you need new connector and new pins on the board.

Quoted from JackG:

As in pull and check with a meter ? If nothing happens when you turn it on, be sure the main fuse is good. And is the cord wired right ?

LTG : )

Thank you, LTG. I’ll see what I can do this weekend. I appreciate you sending this link.

LTG : )

Also: Why does your power cord appear to be for 220 volts? You are in the US, right? If you plug in a machine with USA settings, which expects 110 volts, you will definitely have problems!

#6148 2 years ago

I don't know what it is actually called but it is a twist lock plug that is used in construction and I'm sure has other industrial uses. Unless the dude wired it up to 220 it is for normal household current, just like it says.

I don't remember what that style is called but it's usually used for higher current applications, certainly overkill for a pinball machine. As LTG said I'd suspect the plug or the socket are wired incorrectly assuming this game worked before.

#6150 2 years ago

I'd sure be curious to see what a DMM shows on that outlet.

For that matter I would like to see how the plug on the game was wired...
