Ohh... Thank man... I never realised that whole front plastic piece is broken off mine... That plastic would be easy to replace (if it added anything to the game) but I imagine one of the harder parts to replicate, the artwork.

#204 1 year ago

Yeah mine is busted too. Anything is possible. I've done lots of art like that. Tough thing is getting enough people to make it affordable. More people is cheaper per.

#205 1 year ago

I see somebody made all the sticker decals.. not sure if they still around (I can't message) but I'd buy a set off them...
How would you do that artwork on plastic?

#206 1 year ago

You can scan the art then clean it up then print high quality decals and put them on the bottom side (decals printed sticky side up)of blank plastics. The art isn't hard for be. Getting the plastics cut and getting enough people to order to make it worth the printing printing.

As for the sticker decals I don't think that process was ever finished. He did some at but never finished the set nor printed them

I've been putting some plays on RK lately. The playfield is in pretty decent shape overall except for this wear spot at the right lock. It's such an eye sore. Does anyone have a scan or know how I can fix this? There is also a decent scratch under the entrance for the center ramp that you can see in the picture but it's not as visible and I might consider fixing it later depending on how the right lock repair looks.

#209 1 year ago

I don't have a scan but that's not too complex. You could paint it or if you pulled stuff off and scanned it I could touch up the scan so you could print a decal.

My machine isn't in a good position to scan but if I can get it I will

I thought about trying to paint it, but I've never done a touch up before and my art "skills" are minimal at best. I would be ok pulling stuff off of it, but how do I scan it? Any help from you would be much appreciated! I really like this game and I would like to make it look better if I can.

#211 1 year ago

Ideally you could use a handheld scanner. But without that I'll need a number of high res photos , well lit and taken from directly above.

Unfortunately I don't have a handheld scanner. I can take some stuff off the playfield and get you some high res photos. Can you PM me the email you want me to send them to?

Thanks!

Add me to the club ! Getting ready to tear her down for a refurb. I’ll add some photos later hopefully !

#214 1 year ago

Ok, hopefully someone here can help me. Got the Road Kings all cleaned up and working great. New bulbs, rubber, shooter, etc - what a difference! I can send a video, if I knew how to get it on here? Just to show the lights and more importantly the sounds. (and voices)

1) My sounds/music seems more like 21st Century "Devo"? ( I had seen other posts about U2 music, or even Meat Loaf? Is that a mod, or not real?
2) My switch to modulate thru the diagnostics - the middle tab, left hand side on the switch closest to the machine of the 3 (on the coin door, next to the up or down switch) that the white wires solder to had broken off. So I soldered them to the top left hand tab. The machine works now, but it will not allow me to modulate thru the tests. (I hope this all makes sense, I'll attach pics) So, can I reattach another wire to another tab on another switch to get this to work right, or will I need to replace that switch? Can I just replace the single, or is it a triple ? It's playing, I'd just like to have it back 100%
3) This is the actual "issues" part - when I start her up, I get three (3) "knocker" alerts - (Which I take it is the auto diagnostic?) These are all "Adjust Switch" - L Jet Bumper, R Jet Bumper and Left Out lane. What do these mean? I "cleaned" the switch blades on the R&L out lanes, but didn't fix it.
4) I changed the bulbs for the lightning bolts (4 on each) - but I do not see them working. Is there a trigger that makes these come on? (Like getting all ROAD KINGS lit?)
5)The power supply unit has an outlet on the box inside the cab. I bought a light mod kit that goes under the cab (yeah, Red) - can I just plug this kit into that outlet without causing issues on the machine? (That way when you turn it on, it all powers up together)
As always, any & all help is appreciated! Thanks up front!

#215 1 year ago

Found out that once all the targets are hit (road kings) the lightening bolts do work!!!! Yeah! Nice touch.
And once I checked those gates are not activating so it’s probably needing adjustments on those. I’ll update once I find what the issues are

Still need to know about the power outlet and if it’s useful for the low power lights as A mod under the cab ?

And if anyone can “chime “ in on the music part question above (pun intended)

#216 1 year ago

Power outlet inside the cab is fine to use . I’ve hooked up one of those mod light kits and plugged it into there perfect. Set it to red and it glows .

IDK. Too cheesy? Go ahead. Critique away

#217 1 year ago

Just need some help on the jet bumpers adjust switch alert. My two outer lane switches are not working. The left side does have a bumper that could knock the ball back into the playfield. It isn’t working. I presume it’s off that side switch. The right side doesn’t have any thing. So didn’t understand the alert. Or how to fix either of these switches if these are in fact the two it’s referring to? Never ending quest huh?

I like it. Looks really cool

#219 11 months ago

I’ve heard others use a glue gun as the self sticking stuff on the back does not adhere well. But I actually used one of those larger chrome industrial staple guns. The staples are actually large enough to spread accross the led strip without penetrating it. Keeps them in place. The kit I ordered had two strips. 36” long. I put one diag across the bottom and one accross the head. Thought it turned out nice for $50

On other posts I finally (with the help of some excellent Pinsiders!) got her working 100%. So stoked for Christmas !!

I’m looking for some Mod ideas for a Road Kong’s Machine. What have you guys done?

#222 9 months ago

Road kings machine. I was adding ring LED lights to my bumpers, connected by a replacement build that had an additional wire coming from it to connect up the ring. Seemed to work fine but when I was putting the bumper car back on the GI lights went out. Fuses appear to be fine. Also, the game isn’t starting up anymore. Pressing the start button just makes a sound of a motorcycle starting up, which is the sound that it makes if there is a ball missing. I don’t know what else to check. Can someone help

Man its lonely here in the Road Kings club. Any chance a Road Kings owner could photograph their left slingshot coil and wiring? I have no coil power in game or in coil test, and switches dont register in switch test either. This area has been worked on by someone and I think the wiring is incorrect. Thanks!

#226 9 months ago

Is this the area you’re looking for?

Hello Road Kings challengers. Working on a comprehensive scoring and rules sheet for RK. I think I haver all the element but I am trying to figure out what builds the Time Lock score. Know how to collect it but not what builds the value. In the manual it just says the value can only be built during MB. I also know it starts at 200K and it seems that it builds in 1k increments (maybe 10k as well). Any insight would be welcome. A LOT more to come from this project.

Are there any custom apron cards out there for RK? Anything is better than stock cards

#230 7 months ago

I have been meaning to make some for years, literally years, I will find time this week to make it so....

#231 7 months ago
Quoted from BertoDRINK1:

I made a custom set for a buddy, if I can find the file I will gladly share them. I'll go look for it now.

#232 7 months ago

Here are the ones I created, if anyone likes them, please feel free to use. I create all my custom cards in word, so that I know they will print out the correct size. I snipped the picture from there so that I could post here, but if the resolution or sizes are off, feel free to message me and I can email you the original word file too.

Still need to make some, HA. I'm terrible with projects! On a lighter note Robert Gagno posted a really killer game of RK to youtube!

Really puts anything I can do to shame. I think he rolled it 3-4 times.

Cool video, crazy points I could never do that.

I've created these custom apron cards, and am making them available for $10 per set, including US postage. I print these on a photo printer using OEM ink (no cheap third party) and OEM ultra gloss photo paper. I then cover in 3 mil clear gloss laminate, and razor cut to size.

Please PM me if interested.

Have a lead in a sweet one with new cpu at $800

Thoughts on price? Is the game worth it?

#240 50 days ago

Yes and yes..........Joey

#241 50 days ago

It's home. Original legs were spray painted black. Goo gone should take that off right?

#243 49 days ago

Anyone have a spare decal for the drop target? I see they sell them in sets of 3, so figured maybe someone had a spare they could sell.

Thanks,
RC

#244 48 days ago

Or if anyone has a file for that detour target, I can print one out on decal paper.
