Anyone want to come to Michigan to help me setup my RR WOZ for freeeeeeeeee??

You're paying airfare?!

Quoted from harryhoudini:

Anyone installed the playfield repair decals? Looking for any advice, procedure, what playfield items were removed, etc. Did you mylar over them?

I didn't know such a thing existed for WOZ. Where do you get them?

Are we talking about clear mylar playfield protectors here? Or artwork decal?

#7307 5 months ago

There are artwork decals but only the very early playfields might need them.

Oh mine were mylar playfield protectors, they are not super thin though so sometimes a slow ball can roll around them

I sold my WOZ as miss playing it and pretty sure I’m ordering a YBR edition ?
Anyone play of of these ? I like the yellow
And had issues with the monkey I personally don’t think it’s that big of deal
PM me if you have YBR would love your feedback

I played YBR edition at TPF.
It plays the same as all the others.

I do like the upgrades to the castle playfield, it needed work, and the 2.0 boardset.

I think the yellow color is a bold choice and brightens up the game a lot. It still needs the playfield illumination kit. They didnt address the poor GI lighting.

Missing the monkey is no big deal, sad, but no big deal.

How have the improved door changed the game? Just reliability?

What's the flow of gameplay if the monkey doesn't lock the ball? Extra ball comes out on rescue multiball?

It just feeds another ball via the shooter. Same as if you had 3 balls locked in virtual.

Flow has not been altered. You still have to wait for the movie to end, the ball just stays on the magnet and drops into play.

My personal opinion is to get a RR version with the 2.0 boardset instead of the yellow, in spite of the upgrades for home use. It's just more interesting.

But I would absolutely get the YBR for location play. It's way more stable.

#7313 5 months ago

I am not part of the owner's club, but I finally got to play WOZ yesterday (Yellow Brick Road edition) at Pinfest. What an amazing game...so many shots and so much fun. I was blown away, and I have never seen the movie ( ). Thankfully, I made a new buddy who has one and can continue to play whenever I head to his place, as I cannot afford one of these myself. Congrats to those of you who have a WOZ...you certainly made an excellent choice it seems.

Thank you for my bias confirmation! RR 2.0 is shopping to me this week.

#7318 5 months ago
Quoted from pinballinreno:

The used/refurb ones should be ok.
You cant beat the $40 prices.
There's a new open box one on Ebay for $52
I would definitely get the ebay one while you can.
Can someone post the mainboard from a black arrow hobbit?
They are compatible.
Meanwhile there are plenty used mainboards out there or new for a high price:
https://ithardwarehub.com/msi-h81m-p33-lga1150-intel-h81-ddr3-sata3-usb3-0-a-gbe-microatx-motherboard/?gclid=CjwKCAjwqqrmBRAAEiwAdpDXtHTiCoX4EY_NppiUVG1qLg12-k_OyZhLe9ZI9peQLlNlm1kXjWtOmRoC6AUQAvD_BwE
JJP lists the populated mainboards for $199 but claim to be out of stock.
I would call and verify this, its also a good price

any chance someone have pictures of the inside of the WOZ computer to see board set placement? I bought new MB/CPU to upgrade from Atom in the prototype.

This is a pretty freaking good deal if you consider quality and rarity... there are hardly any ECLEs coming up for purchase these days.

#7321 5 months ago

First is early Atom board like mine Second one is the H61M board so that helps though it is a bit small to check all the details. Will help for now

Funny the article mention a "reset button" for the MB, I guess my prototype did not have one of those.

None of the 1st run had reset switches. Just jumper the pins on the mainboard with a small screwdriver and you're good to go.

They added a switch later to the metal box so you could hit it from the outside.

There are a fair amount of pictures in this thread. Look for reset button pics.

I can take a better one tonight. You can add the button, mine doesn't have it either but never needed it. I should really back both my jjp games up. How'd you end up with a proto?

#7324 5 months ago

Hi guys
Joined the club today with a HUO one owner. It’s a very early model, number 27/1000. The previous owner had it in his company office so it didn’t get a lot of play and the owner wasn’t a pinhead so pretty much all teething problems out of the box still exist. God knows how he played it. J108 wasn’t even connected so he had no slingshots, upper slingshot, upper flippers or state fair bumper !!!!!!
A couple of questions if I may? Switch D06 Monkey magnet sense isn’t registering. Where the hell is that, despite the using the diagnostic map I don’t know what I’m looking for.
Also the monkey sometimes only goes halfway before returning to home without taking the ball. I’m guessing this may be something to do with that switch error? Also he doesn’t drop the ball when he gets to the top.

Oh and..... what the hell are you supposed to do on this game

Thanks in advance
Gaz

See the playfield ? See the back wall of the playfield ? On the opposite side of that wall, opposite of the playfield magnet area, is a small sensor held on by two screws, follow the two wires, it pugs onto a small board near the rear underside of the playfield. Reseat it. And you can check it in Tests - Devices.

Has JJP said anything anywhere about when to expect the next batch of 25th anniv. Machines?

#7327 5 months ago

I was told there are no more Ruby Red editions being built ? That came from a dealer who is friends with Jack ?

Anyone care to shed some light ?
They are advertised on pinside for $9500
What’s up with that

#7328 5 months ago

More RR with YBR coming out? Would those supposed RR have old castle doors and monkey?

#7329 5 months ago
Quoted from johnnyutah:

Did you know Ruby Red are LE, only 1500 were made. I got #34 , nib, 5 years ago new. They are definitely gone , new,that is.

The ruby red is not limited to 1500. That limit was removed right after it was released. Only ECLE, the automated services exclusive emerald green, and the YBR are limited in number.

#7331 5 months ago

So ??? Are they making more RR ?
If so no monkey ? What’s the deal

If they make more, I doubt they will put in the monkey.

They would use the new cabinet and it wont fit the monkey mech

There’s more than one option. :p
I’d buy an automated services emerald green WOZ before the YBR. Comes with most features the EC/RR had and has the monkey still and 2.0 boards. And costs $2k less. That’s the route I went after YBR came out.

I didn't realize how far back the mobo is.. my phone was low on battery so I couldn't use flash. Let me know if this works, if not I'll take another in the morning. The game is still all open.

I doctored them up as best I could in Photoshop.

thanks that helps, i was just worried the MSI H81M-P33 MB was going to be longer based on some of the dimension i had seen out there. looks like it should fit fine

#7341 5 months ago

So, my wife and I have a WOZ standard from 2016, our first ever pinball machine. We still have it after 3 years, and I doubt it's leaving anytime soon.

I'm considering powdercoating the stainless steel (current picture below) I've seen the job Robert Stone (I think his name is) does, and he's fantastic. He does an emerald green sparkle color on many of these. He can also do a ruby red sparkle color. (He can do literally any color you ask for). I'm considering doing something a little bold, like sparkle yellow with blue or red flake in it. But, with YBR out now, my yellow idea isn't as fresh.

Any suggestions? I think yellow with subtle sparkle or flake would look great. But almost any color would work on that game, so many colors are featured.

Personally, and I have a RR on the way to me to replace my SE, I am a huge fan of the sparkle green. If I could have found a ECLE I would have jumped on it. Do the wireforms while you're at it

That ad on Hemisphere's site says limited to "1500 units"
JJP Site says "limited to 1500 units"
Automated's says "limited to 1500 units"
Where can I see or hear JJP say they ended the 1500 limit?
I have #1460, bought last year, 2.0 boards.
Just curious as I don't plan to sell it ever.

Can you link to where it says limited to 1500 on JJP site? I couldn’t even find the 75th RR on JJP site anymore so maybe I missed it.

It's still there and under specs says limited to 1500, I've seen the posts that they removed that limit but don't recall ever seeing anything offiicially saying or confirming it. I've also seen posts saying they are doing more RRs with the monkey and in the new cabinet but until we see one actually ship that's just speculation too. It could also be the YBRs aren't selling like they hoped and they don't want to canibilize those sales to RRs that are $2K cheaper.

#7347 5 months ago
Quoted from Sciddleybop1980:

It is supposed to tell the game if the ball was actually captured by the PF magnet so the Monkey can pick it up, they are difficult to get adjusted just right and at some point long ago they changed the code to just act like it captures it even if it doesn't so it's not that important anymore.
