Re: Stern Ali Gameplay Video

The rules of this game are pretty simple, I've labeled the key areas of the playfield below: ali-layout.png ⋅  A - ball arch and "skill shot" saucers. very low scoring ⋅  B - GREATEST standups and rollovers (also including inlanes) ⋅  C - spinner at 2000 per &...

Stern Ali Gameplay Video

This is a demonstration of most of the features of Stern Ali, in a single 3-ball game. Score is not visible but you can hear the credit knocker at 300k, 500k, and 900k. Final score around 1.1 million.

Re: Ottawa Show list of games

What a great show! Favorite machines included Icarus, Hokus Pokus, Dragon, Medusa and no doubt others I've forgotten. But a special mention must be made of the Xylog / Little Brutus lineup, very very nice condition and well maintained throughout the event. I played a ton of Rollergames, Fire, and es...

They look like same shape/size as the Nugent caps? It won't fit on Ali. :(

Re: Tech: Stern Ali

After the star rollover insert fell apart, I made a half-hearted attempt to remove it following the guidelines in this pinside post . It wouldn't budge, and I was afraid to try any harder. The game played quite well with the broken insert so it wasn't a high priority. Today I had the whole machine a...

Re: Sorcerer issues/ phantom tilt

First resolve those switches which are shown closed. The shooter lane switch should be straightforward, but I'm surprised it's reporting a closure on the slingshot. If that happened during a game it would probably lock on and blow a fuse. However it's possible that the manual is wrong and 33 could b...

Re: OPL May 28th@Quarter Grabber

I always enjoy unusual titles and today was no exception with Pharaoh getting the most play. I hope Elektra is working next time, that is another rare beauty I have only played once! Also there is room for at least twice as many pins in that game room, what's going on? 8-)

WTT: Classic Stern Pop Bumper Caps

Long shot? I have a set of brand new Stern Nugent bumper caps. These were intended for use with Stern Ali, but the screw holes don't line up. I would like to trade for a suitable set which would actually fit. http://www.marcospecialties.com//images/products/13A-12-2-PCS/large.jpg The specific design...

Re: Tech: Stern Ali

I've been trying to treat this as a "playable project", fixing one thing at a time. The problem is that without a full teardown, not all of the damage can be identified right away. And so I found after disassembling the pop bumpers, some of the parts just had to be replaced, and I didn't i...

Re: Tech: Stern Ali

The outlane guides in this game are simply wire inserted to the playfield. At the leading edge they tend to get hammered by the ball, and then have to be pushed back up again. Bit of a nuisance. http://www.maaca.org/download/file.php?id=32988&t=1 As you can see here, the hole is drilled right th...

Re: Elektra - inconsistent solenoid issue

Maybe one of the slingshot switches is sticking closed when the slingshot fires?
