Need help:Stern menu

Postby andre » Wed Nov 28, 2018 8:05 pm

I would need a major big favor from an TSPP owner or any Stern owner with same menu system as TSPP
Having a display issue that i'm trying to solve for the last 3 weeks and have been the owner for only a month.
So the game plays fine but blind and i'm having a party friday night with non pinheads friends that only play once a year when i do this pinball\craft beers evening and i would like to set the machine on extra easy settings so that they easily can get to different modes and multiball and appreciate all the fun in the game even with no display and animations.
But i can't see nada on the dmd.

Would someone be nice enough to write down a complete sequence of the buttons (think it would be 10-12 pushes maximum) i would have to push to get the game to play extra easy settings like: black,green,green,black,red,red,...? Need to be from attract mode to back in attract,ready to push start.
Wish i could have another Stern to compare but i don't.
That would be really appreciated!
Thanks in advance!

André

André, this is from T3 which was built right after TSPP:

1) 1x Black will get you to the Service Menu

2) wait 3-4 seconds for the splash screen to complete its thing...

3) 3x Green will get you to the Install menu

4) 1x Black will install Extra Easy

5) 2x Red will bring you to Quit

6) 1x Black will select Quit

If you need anything else, let me know.

I've got a TSPP and will verify the sequence for you. There might be an easier sequence. If I remember correctly, I'm pretty sure there is an install easy feature. I might be wrong on that.

André,

I am re-reading the directions I provided, and even if I tested the process 2 times on my T3, it seems to me that it is missing one step. I cannot test it at this time but...

I think steps 1-3 are correct:
1) 1x Black will get you to the Service Menu

2) wait 3-4 seconds for the splash screen to complete its thing...

3) 3x Green will get you to the Install menu


THIS IS WHERE I THINK SOMETHING IS MISSING. What step 3 did was move the focus to the right 3 times until focus is on the 'INSTALL' icon. What is missing, I THINK, is 1x Black to actually enter the 'INSTALL' menu.

Then the remaining steps are correct.

4) 1x Black will install Extra Easy

5) 2x Red will bring you to Quit

6) 1x Black will select Quit

If no one else can confirm before 2000hrs tonight (when I get home), I will post again with confirmation.

Well done RedFive. I confirmed your instructions on my TSPP. I've revised them slightly.

Here is what I would recommend:

1) 1x Black will get you to the Service Menu

2) wait 3-4 seconds for the splash screen to complete its thing...

3) 3x Green will get you to the Install menu

4) Press Black. This will install Extra Easy. Wait 2 seconds or so. Do you want to install 5 ball? If so, go to step 5. If not, you can simply turn the game off, wait, and turn back on.

5) If you want to install 5 balls after installing Extra Easy. Wait 2 secs. Now press Green button 6 times then press black. After it the game sounds, wait 2 seconds. Turn off, wait and turn back on.

Test and let me know your results.
