Quoted from Daditude:

What are the "must-have" mods for WOZ?
I have a WOZ ecLE with the emerald city mod, witch smoke mod, back alley walls mod, decals, ramp mod, cliffys, leg protectors, and the lighted drop target mod. I definitely want to get the flying monkey too...but what else?
Lighted tree eyes?
WOZ figures?
Any great apron cards?
??

I really like the Haunted Forest LED strip that Mezel Mods offers. It adds considerable light to the very dark forest area, and turns it purple. I can see a lot more of the artwork there now, and the left orbit shot through the pops isn't quite so blind. Blades for the inner cab sides are awesome on this pin. I like Tilt Graphics. We added a little plastic bridge over the left sling, and some wooden-looking fence posts along the shooter lane. Looks nice!

I've been absent for a while but anyone add the Pinstadium lights? What do you think?

Quoted from wtatumjr:

I added them, they add tons of light!

I took them out and added 8 spotlights in a few areas.

It's less light but I like it better.

Best mod you can put in a WOZ other than protectors (are those considered mods?) IMO. Completely adjustable and will interact with the light show if you want it to.

#8007 1 year ago

I have put on a few mods (sparkling emerald city, decals, witch and red smoke mod, black out edger for the wizard led) and still have a few more to add (back alley walls, plastic protectors, winkie drop target mod) pics below:

It seems like people enjoy game blades and pinstadium lighting the most, so I will look into those as well.
What game blades are the best looking??

Get a cliffy protector for the edge of your munchkin playfield ASAP. In your picture the denting is very apparent and will start chipping.

No. The area above the red lollipop/rainbow target next to the ramp.

See post #63 in the following thread:

#8011 1 year ago

Modfather also has some chrome trim that protects that area. Different look than Cliffys but does the same thing. Put one of the 2 there though...

They were on a recent game I bought, I also removed them. Too even/bright of a light for a game that should have some dark areas. I built my own system but I think I'll list it for sale if anyone is interested. It's pretty inexpensive.

Quoted from Daditude:

The screen for the CB. Mine went wonky.

#8017 1 year ago

My crystal ball is also wonky.. Will work sometimes, but often gets frozen on the Skillshot clip and stays frozen on that image until you restart the machine. Not sure if it's better to just order a new screen, or try cleaning up the current screen and reseating everything, or swapping the card, etc? Any thoughts on this from anyone who had it freeze up?

That is the same issue I had (just posted about it). I had another WOZ to swap with and I deduced it down to the screen itself, which is why I bought that new one. I need to go swap it in and test and confirm, so I'll let you know. It seems the screen has some issue where it can't read the video files or something. I swapped SD cards, screens, games, etc. so it seemed like it was isolated to the one screen itself.

What are mint conditioned HUO WOZLE's going for these days? Anyone sold or bought one recently?

#8021 1 year ago

ELCEs are pretty rare, I've seen them easily hit $9000 but depending on the buyer could be more for pristine. If it has the 7.5v boards then maybe take a bit off. RR's go for around $8k depending on use. I'd say there is a range up and down for both models of $1k or so.

I had someone contact me about mine but was looking to spend low 7's, I was thinking closer to $8k but wanted to get some opinions.

Quoted from cscmtp:

Since it's not me buying definitely don't sell for that low. $8k I would say should be the lowest, but honestly $8500 is very reasonable for a game in that condition. Less if it has 7.5v boards sure, but even then those are the best non 2.0 boards to have it sounds like. I've been seeing RRs go for $8500.

ECLEWOZ
emerald city limited edition wizard of oz.

Some of us waited years to get one.

#8026 1 year ago

Of course this showed up below the thread... what a screaming deal. I really wanted to buy a ECLE and rob all the toys from my RR and make a single monster machine!

I got my acronyms confuused. There seem to be a lot of different woz pins.

Standard, ECLE, YBR, RR...and i heard there are "green" editions. Any others?

That's correct. The green edition is special and only sold by Automated, I believe.

#8029 1 year ago

In case someone here might be able to help, can't get a new crystal ball screen working: https://pinside.com/pinball/forum/topic/what-do-i-need-to-make-a-new-crystal-ball-screen-work

This is correct.
It's a special automated edition.
Basically a standard with green armor.

If a factory screen wont work.
I'd suspect the cable or contacts on either end.

Maybe, just maybe a bad or corrupt sdcard.

Most of the problems have been bad cables and loose cards.

#8032 1 year ago

I almost bought one, then I scored a late model ECLE with 7.5 boards only 45 plays, I love it... the automated one does not have the wood apron, or topper, but supposedly does have 2.0 boards.

Quoted from pinballinreno:

Not that.

Screen from another (SE) WOZ works in my RR. SD cards from either screen (bad and good) work in that good (SE) screen. So I know that everything else in the RR machine aside from the screen is ok.

I bought a new screen (not from JJP, because they don't even produce it.. it's made by 4D Systems). I figured if I swapped in the SD card from the old screen it would be golden (assuming all the firmware/coding to run the proper video at the proper signal was on the SD card but apparently that isn't the case). The issue was the bad screen (RR) was stuck on "SKILL" most of the time. I even restored the image of the "good" (SE) SD card (the one from the screen that originally worked from my other WOZ) to the "bad" (again, I believe the card is fine) screen SD card. Both SD cards worked in the "good" SE screen so it did not seem to be the SD card. But putting the SD card in the brand new screen all I get is the manufacturer scroll of model, serial, etc. No videos from the SD card play at all. So I assume there is some firmware/programming needed to flash on to that device.

#8034 1 year ago

If you buy an OLED screen from JJP you can get a new programmed card to go with it.

#8035 1 year ago
Quoted from harryhoudini:

That's correct. The green edition is special and only sold by Automated, I believe.

2 questions:

1) how do i know if i have 2.0 boards? Sorry, im a newb as far as woz goes.

2) what mods do you have on your woz?

#8036 1 year ago

2.0 system uses a bunch of cat 5 Ethernet cables and a hub board where they all plug in. Older led system uses data cables with red and green ends jumping from board to board.

#8037 1 year ago
Quoted from Pinballomatic:

If you buy an OLED screen from JJP you can get a new programmed card to go with it.

If the card works, why do I need a screen from jjp? Does the screen have unique programming or firmware installed on it? If so, how can I get that? I should be able to install a replacement not from jjp.

I did a custom lighting kit. Gouvea smoke and monkey mods. Custom balloon flame light. Lighted winky. Cliffys. Neon plastic protectors. Color anodized nuts. Titan color matched rubbers.

I think that's it.

Quoted from Soulrider911:

I recall reading about the Automated green edition. Don't know that it had Invisiglass or the direct painted and cleared cabinets. Was there a difference with the backlash maybe (mirrored or more of a green going on or something)?

Quoted from dnaman:

No direct print cabinet, same backglass as the normal WOZ games. It's more or less a standard game with green armor, only 50 were made, originally with 1.1 or 1.4 LEDs but later the remaining stock was sent down by Automated to the factory so that 2.0 upgrade kits could be installed. Not sure how many he has left in stock at the moment.

Quoted from harryhoudini:

There's an additional step invovled that I personally have not done. The BIOS has to be re-flashed I believe and then the card is programmed and installed. With the BIOS from the manufacturer the monitor will not work (else why re-flash it?). That's what I've been able to learn so far anyway.

#8042 1 year ago
Quoted from pinballinreno:

It's closer to an RR than a standard. Standards don't have invisiglass, shaker, powdercoated rails/legs/lockdown like the special automated emerald green has.

So I'm joining the club very soon (ecle finally) and plan to buy that throne room mod. Does anyone know where on the light board the throne room plugs in?

Pics to come... Should have by EOD.

I don’t think any mods connect to the light boards.

It goes into a GI circuit. Not 12v, 6.8v max for throne room mod. Hardest part was finding the open connector in the harness.

The led strip that lights the throne room connects to where though? Is there a pic in the manual?

Connector there or right below the playfield.
