Quoted from Blackbeard:
Is it me, or is the skill shot damn hard sometimes?
I ordered a replacement spring just to make sure the correct one is in there, but I make the shot about 4/10 times.
I can make mine 90% of the time.
Quoted from dluth:
I have got a blank space to the right of the No Way Out entrance - it's really bugging me as the GI lamp is blinding.
Looking at pics of other machines there is something there, but I can't find out what it is exactly. Can anyone help, and a source online for the plastic/decal or whatever it is would be great!
Ps my high score issue above has cleared up after I swapped out the ROM

The end of your ramp is broken and missing.
Hey guys ,my topper has LEDs and they work horrible. What bulbs work best in the topper?
Quoted from urbanledge:
Well get them out or you'll be in trouble.
That circuit is 14v (maybe 20v) so use 194s like the manual says!
Quoted from btw75:
You could get LEDs that will take it, but yes I agree - if they are regular playfield LEDs they will melt.
No, they are the ones that came with the LED kit from cointaker and they just don't look real good.
I believe its a bevel head philips with a nut with built in star washer. 6/32 or 8/32 in size
Quoted from pin2d:
Hello, I am new to the club as of a few weeks ago and love this game! I have one question I haven't found by searching so far - is it typical for Bigfoot's head hair to be flat pressing against the glass?
It isn't affecting game play at all. But I just feel a bit bad for him, or maybe he just has a big head.
Something is wrong there. Check to see if he is down all the way.
Well sometimes the snow melts and that in turn fills the lakes and that in turn is a cause for the water to rise and that in turn causes the need for a dam release. Thats when its a good time to go rafting. So the snow does kind of make sense.
Quoted from billsfanmd:
I have a flipper button led set from coin taker thats about 6 months old...Cant see where to get 12v. It mentions the board below the left flipper but all the connections are used. Any other easy place grab 12v?
They draw so little you should be able to tap off the 12v from one of the leads on the coin door board.
Quoted from yzfguy:
If you launch at full speed, mine goes sdtm. That way it's a skill shot to barely clear the top hill and use the upper flipper. I bet someone put a weaker spring in yours to avoid newbie frustration.
Mine does the same. Also check the plunger length. I had a problem like that and the plunger was a little shorter and it would not go around until I changed the plunger with the correct one.
Quoted from Blitzburgh99:
I have a couple of burned out bulbs in the topper. Thinking I read a post about those bulbs being special ones. Anyone have a link to where I can get spares?
What ever you do dont put LEDs in there. You will alter the water fall effect.
I believe you can also buy these at your local auto parts store. Mine down the road had them in stock.
Quoted from chaosrooster:
Shopping out my game, the left screw hole for the flap to my insanity falls ramp looks like big foot got hungry and took a bite out of it! The screw isn't really holding very well. Is there any way to fix this or should I just let it be? I was thinking of patching it up with some wood filler and using the screw to form a new groove but I wasn't exactly sure.
[quoted image][quoted image]
You could fix that with saw dust and epoxy mixed together.
Quoted from djreddog:
Here is one for the group. Recently my pops and slings stopped working. Below is everything I have done. Thoughts?
- Checked ALL fuses outside of the fuse holders, all good
- Checked voltage at TP6, got 50V
- Checked pin2 on J107, good
- Checked all lugs on the 3 pops and the 2 slings, all good at 71v
- Checked the outside of the fuse holder for fuse 104, good
- Unplugged J107, and tested voltage on pin2 directly, 71.3v
- Unplugged J127, lifted playfield and ran alligator clip from ground wire to brown wire on each of the coils for the pops, all pops fired
- J127 does not look burned or anything and doesn't appear that it has ever been repinned
- Checked logic on chip U4 by putting game in solenoid test, repeat, and then testing the 2nd pin from the top on the right side, it reads 5.02, and never dips/or changes state
I'm out of options!
I had a sim problem on another machine and it was the IDC connector where it plugged into the board. replaced with molex and all was fine.
It is just the piece you have there that holds the switch. With a new ramp you will see.
I would remove the playfield and repair it before it gets any worse. Than from there you can probably repair easier without worry of it falling apart.
Is there a way you could stand it on edge and have some glue seep into the wood before you clamp it to dry?
