So my pre order finally came in... #127/checking in

Hopefully you got the revised Aux board.

Quoted from rai:

Well my next question is obviously what upgrades should I look for? I know color DMD and newton ball mod

#11953 43 days ago

ColorDMD LCD and shaker motor. The shaker effects are great in this game during the villain modes.

Just ordered the LCD DMD. Any recommendations on where to get a Shaker?

I have a new Newton ball mod missing 1 post sleeve I would ship for $60

#11956 43 days ago

Also does anyone known where I can get 2 of the LE flyers for my collection?

#11958 43 days ago

Congrats man! The Magneto art package is simply amazing. Congrats on finding that hidden gem.

If they made those, I've never seen them.

#11959 43 days ago

I've never seen the LE flyers but have the PRO flyers. They made them though, since they have pics on ipdb.org

Here is the Magneto LE link (first 2 pics)

That's awesome, need to get me one of those. I have the pro as well and thought that was the only one. Thanks for sharing!

#11961 43 days ago

Soooo shaker, color DMD, newton ball, cliffs, anything else?

#11962 43 days ago

I reccomend the lighted brackets for sale in the pinside shops.they screw onto your light boards and add much needed color to all the white lights.

So the new x men LE works great, ice ramp, nightcrawler, etc. Only issue is wolverine bash toy isn't registering. At all. 0 hits. Which won't activate the magnet. Also wolverine toy blocks the ice ramp. Suggestions? It plays fast for a machine that sat new in box for 8 years

#11966 42 days ago

Newton ball mod

Check the switch is plugged in.

There’s one switch in the middle of the figure. Wire runs through the playfield down to the bottom. Check it’s plugged in tight.

Otherwise you’ll need to remove the figure (screws are on the back) and adjust the switch.

I would recommend you just play the “standard” for a few months before doing any mods.

That way it keeps it nice and fresh every time you do a mod.

#11968 42 days ago

Also the left nightcrawler won't go down now.

#11969 42 days ago
Quoted from Digduglus:

You need a new night crawler board,there was a revision 2. If you contact Stern they should send one for free.

Yup...sounds like the Aux board went already. That could be causing the Wolverine issue also if I remember right. Been a long time since I heard about any of that though as most people already dealt with it years ago. Sorry for the trouble already, but it was sure to happen. Stern will send you a new one...hopefully it won’t take too long.

#11971 42 days ago

Well I think Stern is sending me a replacement Aux board. They were surprised when I told them I had just unboxed it.
Moving on, what figures do people use to replace the stock Wolverine one?

I cut the belt off the stock one and made a cheap and dirty bracket. I have seen a few really nice statues used, but beware of airballs. I have seen a lot of BROKEN nice statues.

I'm stuck on flipper/rubber combinations? I'm thinking Mirrored Red with Purple Rubber (It's an LE Magneto), but Gold with blue rubber might look good. or Silver with purple... red, blue... Anyone have cool photos or ideas?
I'm going mirrored purple flipper cabinet buttons to go with the red powdercoat at the moment

#11976 41 days ago

Any lurkers here that want to join the club? Selling or trading my Wolverine. Works great, looks great, no issues.

I have been modifying my game over the past few years. I have documented almost all of it on my web site:

http://www.purcellvillepinball.com/X-MenMagnetoLE2018.html

I did post previously on how I cut the Wolverine figure to add on top of the newton ball and then added a home-made bracket to keep it in place. It is described near the bottom of my long and winding page referenced above.

The above link has photos show adding Cliffy protectors (although I did remove the original Cliffy scoop protector and replace with a Mantis protector, but I have the new Cliffy scoop protector with the track cut out to allow the ball to role into the hole), I added a Beast Bowman collectible figurine mod and an Ice-Man clear Bowen collectible figurine mod with GI through the back and wired to the flasher. This looks cool. I added the color dmd, the decal to cover the plain black wood around the display and speakers, game blades, and red superbands from Marco. The above link has several hundred pictures of the restoration so hopefully interesting or boring like family vacation photos.

Back into the club! Picked up a nice Magneto. Nice VUK with no paint missing. Super nice cabinet. Plays great. Installed Fatpanda's alternate sound track. A super nice addition. If there are any other sound tracks out there let me know. The game has lighted flipper buttons, upgraded back box lighting and under cabinet lighting.

Will install upgraded back box speakers

Ordered:
Newton Ball mod
speaker lights
shaker
Cliffy for the VUK
flipper rubbers (Blue)

Need to think on the color DMD

There is a lot in this game and for the price of most Stern Pro's it is a great fun value. Now I got to go back and re read the rules.

Well got the rev B board, installed it, turned the machine on, hit start and the board instantly blows. FML any suggestions?

New owner here. Did a complete topside teardown to wipe my X-Men LE Wolverine down. Either I have inhaled too much dust or wax, or I am not that bright, but I can't find where plastic (-25) goes? The manual has a "Plastics - Lower Layer" drawing, but none for the upper plastics.

Can someone please take a photo of where this is located on the playfield? I am certain I am looking right at it, but I can't see it in the photos that I took pre-tear down.

That plastic sits under the moving iceman ramp. Just below the upper right flipper, or above the right outlane.

We had a big tournament at my place last weekend.

The semifinal was a four player game on X-Men Magneto. No EBs of course, set up for tournament play.

Player one had a great first ball and got 40m. I got 79m. X-Men is such a great game when you’re flowing ... the combos are soooo sweet.

By ball 3 I was almost at Danger Room, I had completed all the Heroes bar Wolverine. I started it a second time and still didn’t complete it. I was at 129m and so far ahead I just drained it rather than carrying on.

Every time I play this game I remember how good it is.

#11984 31 days ago

Can someone with the revised aux B board and wiring harness send a photo of how it's supposed to look? In don't think I messed it up... Also what fuses should I be looking to see if they blew?

#11985 31 days ago

I have no idea which fuse but heres a pic

Picked up a routed Xmen Pro yesterday:
goteeeeeem (resized).png

And here is what Ive done so far......
Updated the code to 1.51 (was on 1.02)
replaced the last incandescent lock light bulb with an LED
replaced the red and blue LEDs on the "storm board" with whites
replaced the sling rubbers with clears
replaced a bunch of easy to get to rubbers with clears
replaced the leds under the slings with comet 4x1 tower leds
used the 4x1 tower LEDs in the spot lights too (they seem to spread the light better)
slings (resized).png
and I replaced the black post rubbers with clears for the newton ball mod
newton (resized).png
I put a red wedge in Omega Red, a Blue in the Sentinel (Im going to replace it with purple) and orange in sabretooth and shoot again.
They were the only spare colored wedge LEDs
badguys (resized).png

The one thing I had to fix was the spotlight on Magneto. there wasnt 12v coming though the taps, so I pulled the tap off the wires it was on and put it onto a GI light.

The magneto spotlight isn't supposed to be on all the time, it only triggers when magneto multiball starts, thats why it wasn't showing voltage at rest.

Now I know! I'm undecided on moving it back, I kinda like it always being on. I also might put the purple GI lights back behind the hellfire and brotherhood targets.

Are you guys being sarcastic or not? I cant tell :/

got CB3's WIP files for xmen, so hopefully I can finish it off. Card reader isnt working on the one I installed, so I was testing the other one I had before taking the time to swap them.

Working on a wolverine I just picked up and trying to fix a few hack jobs. Can someone tell me where these two wires go? They were just hanging, but look like they were cut from somewhere. It looks like it goes to the lighting system and to the junction just to the right of the magnet.

Would be helpful if you found out specifically where they went to. My guess is that they run to a spotlight, but you will need to confirm.

Yes, spotlight or pop bumper lighting would be my guess.

Could anyone take a picture of the gate that is back behind magneto? Mine is missing a screw on the left side and when I put a half inch screw there with a washer it goes too deep and the ball gets stuck. Not sure if one should go there or I need to pack it with a few washers.

Use a shorter screw with a tiny amount of locktite or a zip tie.

So I've figured out if you soft plunge there are 2 skill shots; Rogue for Psylocke Skill Shot and Storm for Angel Skill Shot, are there any others?

Soft plunge to Xavier is the Super Skill Shot.
