  1. wow. the quality of that print is fantastic!' I wonder what a tron flynn sign like that sign only mod would look like. ps: your shapeways link above is broken (might have been the forum upgrade that did it). Found the rest of your stuff by just searching for swinks. https://www.shapeways.com/marketplace?q=swinks&s=156&type=product#more-products
  2. I have the LE. it’s still only recently new so really early days and it’s hard to tell what it will be like long term but, for me, seems like one of the best games of all time. Easily. Nothing on it that I don’t like. Machines either click with me or they don’t. Gnr didn’t and was sold within 2 weeks after waiting a year. I have not played a pro for comparison though. ps: if anyone else gets one of these models and would like it painted like mine hit me up! Or if you want to do it yourself I can provide all the colors I used. “May I have this dance?” I try and keep all the original parts with the machine just in case. So no sorry. You aren’t the first one to ask. Lol!
  3. Large 10" godzilla model. Works great as a replacement for the little stern one. I accidently ordered two and with 2 month shipping I'd totally forgotten about it. I also posted this in the zilla thread so you can see additional pics there also. Brand new still in bag and unpainted. $115 includes shipping eastern states. ‎23.11 x 12.45 x 10.41 cm; 408.23 Grams If you want it painted like mine we can have a chat. 🙂 When painted and installed it looks like this. Size comparison to original (left pic not my pic). My one on the right after painting and fitting.
  4. Lost me soon as I heard metaverse. Seems like an absolute dumpster fire. Half a trillion gone . https://nymag.com/intelligencer/2022/02/zuckerberg-has-burned-usd500-billion-turning-facebook-to-meta.html "There has never been a self-immolation quite like Meta Platforms, the parent company of Facebook. Mark Zuckerberg’s social-media company has lost more than half a trillion dollars in market value since its August peak — about half of that vaporized in a single day, the biggest drop ever — as it starts to weaken from the constant siege of competitors and dissenters without and within. The fallout is so bad that Meta, once the sixth-largest company in the world by market capitalization, has fallen out of the top ten, replaced by two computer-chip makers, Warren Buffett’s Berkshire Hathaway, and the Chinese e-commerce company Tencent."
  5. I updated and I just left it going and did something else. It still had that loud "QUACK" when it reboots, gets me every time!
  6. Anyone interested in a large 10" godzilla model like the one put in my machine further back in this thread? Looks like somehow ordered two and with 2 month shipping I'd totally forgotten about it. https://www.amazon.com.au/gp/product/B00H48PX94/ Brand new and unpainted. Original cost + shipping. Otherwise I'll just send it back. If you want it painted like mine we can have a chat. 🙂
  7. General Public? https://generalpublic.com.au/ 366 Boundary Rd, Dingley Village VIC 3172, Australia 8 or 9 machines there maybe? pics off of facebook.
  8. Edit : arrg achivements can be found by a further link on the stats page .
  9. fyi, profile searching is case sensitive. Also what you see vs what is public is different. You cant currently see previous scores etc without doing the trick below. There are also some hidden links that allow you to see more info about the people you are following. Changing the last section of the url to "activity" instead of stats allows you to see peoples last play activity. ie. https://insider.sternpinball.com/insider/connections/75262/stats becomes https://insider.sternpinball.com/insider/connections/75262/activity Badges also work, just put "badges" on the end. https://insider.sternpinball.com/insider/connections/64/badges I can't figure out the path to see public achievements as it is different.
  10. I was right next to the speakers when it did it to me. It then did it again upon start up. Reminded me of the jjp start up pops, makes you jump if you aren't ready for it. Finished painting and now just test fitting this guy, needs to be cut a little bit to fit under the glass and not impact the building mech. Might redo his eyes are they're a bit derpy. Eyes recolored and redid some of the colors to match the backglass more. Probably took longer cutting bits off to make it fit the mount than to paint it.
  11. same. Spent that time installing some plastic protectors. Apparently it goes faster if you're plugged into the ethernet port. Havnt tried it myself. Seems weird that it would make any difference at all. Still better than copying to a usb.
  12. 3 ball. I got 1 extra ball though. My average scores are waaaaaaaaaay less! There is likely some massive jackpots being added but im too busy to notice which ones score the most points! I was using heat ray for particularly hard to hit shots or use them early to get extra time. I struggle with the far left spinner more than anything. Last 10 games or so i'd been focusing on single monster battles to understand how I should be completing them. I feel like there could be tons of extra analytics added for game though. How long each game went for? I felt this 1b game went for ages. Graph of scoring over time. Achievement numbers are way too low. 47 plays in and more than 1/2 way already.
  13. If you hadn't figured out already the lube is for the stepper screw in the building mech. Got my first billion+ score and got to fight two of the level two battles.
  14. Old fern tree gully quarry is a nice example but was never really a modern mine like say Olympic dam which is magnitudes larger. Also Olympic dam is pretty much in the middle of nowhere. https://www.google.com/maps/uv?pb=!1s0x6ad63cb8400eff0f%3A0x89ec56694dc3eeaa!3m1!7e115!4shttps%3A%2F%2Flh5.googleusercontent.com%2Fp%2FAF1QipNYbNzKQSipchOb8yJ1nPPar72LuOiMuc6D0Um1%3Dw426-h240-k-no!5sferntree gully quarry - Google Search!15sCgIgAQ&imagekey=!1e10!2sAF1QipNYbNzKQSipchOb8yJ1nPPar72LuOiMuc6D0Um1&hl=en&sa=X&sqi=2&ved=2ahUKEwiS7Nnxgsn1AhUYzzgGHZnLAxMQoip6BAhJEAM
  15. There may be one or two rush le's left. Order now supply is limited!!!
  16. your issue doesnt sound like connectivity. I did see that server offline error aswell. This was only shortly after turning it on though if you are too quick to try and start a connected game. You can tell when its successfully connect as you get the "join now. its free" on the screen, then scan qr and it should ok.
  17. Fixed my wifi issues. Metal backbox is pretty much a faraday cage plus what seems to be a pretty poor wifi adapter even with its giant dual antennas (I wonder if they are fake). The head drops the signal by atleast 60%. So if your signal was marginal to start with it wont help, my access point is upside down roof mounted about 5 meters away from the top of godzilla. Used my phone which had significantly better reception and used it to understand what attenutation was caused by the back box and/or location of antenna. Inside : 92mbps. Default adapter position. Front : 227 mbps top : 233 mbps I didnt want to have to look at the antenna sitting on top of the machine so I moved it. Detach the adaptor and put the usb through the topper hole, reattach the adapter and zip tie to the back and see if that helps. Use a phone app to help determine you best position.
  18. Oh sorry, my apologies 🙂 It surprised me with that antenna, was just expecting one of those tiny usb integrated ones. Havnt had a chance to debug my Wi-Fi issue though. Likely to be a setting it doesn’t like. The light on the scanner hasn’t bothered me at all while playing. I also saw that there is a method to hook up all insider capable machines to a single scanner. So if anyone had a zilla plus any of the connected capable machines then you can save yourself the cost of additional kits and get achievements on all your machines!
  19. It looks a little different to that. It shows it like this : You then get achievements etc. edit: well it’s probably not a range issue. Check out the antennas on the adapter! Might try relocating it outside of its faraday cage!
  20. Yes but I'm having issues with it and my house wifi. I can connect but the machine goes from connected to disconnected and then stays that way. My ubiquiti access point is only about 10 meters away. It has massive range and I can walk out of my house and down the street and still be connected. Hotspot from my phone works fine when it's right next to it so it feels like its an antenna issue or something in the wlan config it doesnt like. Havn't yet had a look at the type of adapter they have used. I'll need to see if I can either fix its reception, replace the wifi card with one with an external antenna or shift the machine to the otherside of the room and hard wire it in. I did a few other minor fixes this morning. Posted details in the pinside godzilla owners thread. Everyone should probably check the play on their bridge to see if it is hitting or not. Mine already had marks on it after only a hand full of games so it would have likely also cracked.
  21. I assume you got them direct from cliffy? How long did it take for him to reply? I emailed a week ago and are still waiting on a reply. I assumed he was flat out right now.
  22. Hey John, your first pic isn't right.
