We're back!

After a disaster in our datacenter took down our server, we are now running Pinside on a brand new server. However, things may not work as expected as we are still polishing the playfield and adjusting some switches! We might be switching to maintenance mode a few times. Please see this forum topic for more info.

Could someone tell me the distance between the playfield and upper playfield? Are the posts holding it up all the same height? Anyone happen to have extra posts?

#1385 5 years ago

Thanks mot!
Anyone able to say if it's 2 3/8 total length or spacer length?
Also looking for the wire shooter lane ramp.

Could someone tell me what color wires they have runing to the hot foot bigfoot, disaster drop, and rapids ramp main switches. Pretty much the 7 column 71, 73, 74, 75.
I'm wiring up a game and some of the pieces I have don't seem to match the manual. I wonder if there's a typo.

Anyone ever have their bigfoot turn clockwise only? I see counter clockwise only is mentioned in the guides as a failed diode. I have a new motor controller board and it does the same thing. Seems like it should be a problem in the board if he turns at all.

#1647 5 years ago
Quoted from PjM:

Did you perform the test in diagnostics?

Fixed it. Typo in the manual on page 3-26 pin one and two of j1 need to be swapped.
So for the next guy who searches this problem (if it ever happens again) when control and enable are swapped, bigfoot will only turn clockwise.

Finally got mine playing tonight. Picked up a pile of parts from Eastern Europe, then found or made the rest bit by bit. Wired playfield from scratch.
Lots to do still, but the major fun milestone has been reached.

Quoted from PACMAN:

Wow, talk about doing it the hard way
What happened to the MB?

It was a free empty cabinet when I found it. I assume someone did a nice restore on their MB.

Quoted from thewool:

So how many other people have lightning flippers installed? I asked the guy when I bought it if these were standard and he said yes, but it was also set to 5 balls. I set it back to 3 balls and the game has always felt really hard to me, which is great, but I don't want to make it artificially so....

I dig the lightning. Even got em on bk2k

#1776 5 years ago

I left mine out completely.. I guess there's a chance I'll drain out of the bumper nest, but it hasn't felt overly unfair yet.

Quoted from xTheBlackKnightx:

Unfortunately, most of the older generations to do not post, post regularly, or even use a computer.

So what else didn't make it besides the insanity falls ramp with lanes and right return? I think that's the only major change I saw.

Would anyone be willing to send pics of the top of their backbox with a few measurements of what gets cut out? I have the metal plate that goes in front, just not sure how exactly to cut a standard backbox to covert to wh2o.

Dunno if I'd do it, but I've seen white and it looks OK

Quoted from yzfguy:

IMHO... White looks a lot like ass.

What kind of ass are we talking about?

Mine is open. Right outlane post is all the way out to compensate the extra drain factor.

If you find one post details here. I have some random bit that works, but isn't for whitewater.

Would have to be pretty nice @ 6k. Seems like I've seen some sell in the 4s recently, if those are players 6k isn't awful for a higher end example.

Full ramp set is something around $800 I think that's been a decent factor in wh2o prices going up.

At that price i'll just go carve some rocks, drill some holes in them and call it a day.

Brace yourself for the repro topper decal.

Quoted from yaksplat:

1: I was told, "What am I supposed top do about it?"
2: Cliffy made a version that works on both now.
3: 95% of my dimples were off. It was a nightmare of redrilling every hole and refitting every mech. There was also a hole for a post missing next to the left cellar. Again, no response from Mirco. His post sale service is miserable.

Jeez. I was kinda bummed with cpr after fish tales with the bad shooter lane AND they never replied to my email asking if they had a recommended work around. Micro doesn’t sound much different.

#4530 1 year ago

I think Alien was done by Micro. if so, they definitely have a nicer clearcoat finish

Has he done any updates? I noticed a couple screens that render weird. it’s much better than the colordmd colors even with a few flaws.

#5338 4 months ago
Quoted from yaksplat:

Did you let him know?
There were a couple that were odd to me. I let him know and he fixed them.
Which ones don't look right?

I’ll have to get the glass off and take some vid or photos. I think the replay score is wonky at end of ball, and I’m pretty sure i caught something odd in gold rush. Poked around a little, seems like i probably have the latest.

I think I like the original best, but this is well done. Nice work.
