Was that cat a stray and you took him in?

Wait...was our Munsters club changed to the kitty club? (Had to look at the title again to make sure I was in the right thread, lol...even Lilly seemed bothered)

Good thing I popped a few Bravecto's last night before I checked in.

Quoted from Who-Dey:

I have a couple of tame outside-owned-by-no-one cats I have been feeding. As you may figure, that has attracted other cats and created baby kitties. We have had some warm weather this winter that has allowed me to be out working on my back porch. While all of the ferals scatter while I am on the porch this little kitten kept running up to me but would then run away. After a few days of this, I managed to touch her.

The next thing I know is that she is jumping up and grabbing onto the door knob of my kitchen door an an effort to peek through the window see what is going on inside my house. I opened the door and she came in and has been here ever since. The first thing I did was buy a cat box. She took to it immediately.

She had a sister who I let in the house to get the good food but the sister was never comfortable inside or comfortable with me. She has since moved on.

She is a nice kitten so I named her Sweetie Pie. It sort of rolls of the tongue.

Sweetie Pie's grandfather is a feral cat that is tame. He figured out that if he was friendly to people that he would get good food. I think Sweetie Pie received grandpa's "like people" gene. She eats well

I have a new first today, finally decided to update the code on Munsters today to the latest version, although it doesn't do much except for topper I said what the hell why not.

So I put the usb it starts code update, select yada yada yada. Update finshes remove usb now, the fucker when removing it with out any resistance as usual from any usb port, pull the usb port center from the main board on the left port. Now the right side does not see's usb stick any longer as well. Fuck me...... these piece of shit .39 cents Taiwan pcb connectors. They could have least went $2.00 for the molex versions. smh

That is part of and inside the main box. Correct? Now what do you do? Is that covered under any kind of warranty?

Yep it is the double USB port on the cpu board itself. I did write Stern, sent the requested info serial number photos etc and within 30 minutes they authorized a cpu main board replacement. I have to say their tech support has been pretty good and no complaints here.

Maybe they just felt bad for us munsters guys that we have to labor through the current code state lol.

I have had the same experience. 5 years ago they didnt have their stuff together the way they seem to these days. I had a MET issue when they first came out and it was a huge pain to get anything taken care of. Much better now

#7314 32 days ago

Question about a bug that I'm assuming everyone is dealing with re: the topper: The clock on mine will occasionally start spinning and never stop, requiring the machine to be turned off/on to stop it. I'm assuming this is something that we're all dealing with while Stern works on code updates, but I was wondering if anyone knows how to stop it once it starts without power-cycling the machine. I've tried the tests in the menu and they have no effect, the clock keeps spinning.

Thanks!

My clock does not do that.

Our clock does that too. I think the only way to stop it is to turn the game off. I find the game does not do it as much if you do not activate the clock during attract mode. I feel the issue is with the node board in the clock.

We put in a request to Stern on the 12th October with no response (cc'd to Patrick Powers). Follow up email on the 11th December, no response.

If you get a result, could you please post on this thread and tag me. If Stern say "that is the only one I have heard of" you know they are not telling you the truth.

He's not real good at returning emails.

#7318 32 days ago
Quoted from Who-Dey:

He's not real good at returning emails.

We live in Australia, phone calls are difficult and our distro could not help us any more. Responding to an email previously has never been an issue.

It is much easier to respond to an email than return a phone call. Not good enough from Stern for me.

And I will add, CGC and JJP respond to all their emails and requests. They both leave Stern for dead in that department.

Why i didn't want to pay the $660AUD for the clock i knew i would be paying for a headache.

Jeez. What does $660AUD buy you down there? How much does a steak dinner cost?

#7321 32 days ago

A nice Steak $40 but we get chips with that

Yes, it was a headache. We had ours apart twice.

The topper is awesome when it goes properly. One of the best toppers ever made. Only AFMrLE topper beats it.

It was a hard decision as it looks like a great topper but the price and headache i just had to move on. Still trying to sell my Munsters with no luck i am enjoying it more now than before but it is what it is.

I must be one of the fortunate ones with my topper. No real issues to date, but do think when the new code hopefully comes out, topper issues will be fully resolved. Think you would love the topper and really adds value to your game. In a few years or less, people are really going to be looking for that topper and willing to pay big for it. It is so interactive with the game and think it is the best interactive topper ever made for any machine. It really is integrated well into the game play.

#7325 32 days ago

I am sure i will kick myself down the track.

Can you still buy one. If so where at? PM me

Has anyone installed the spider web side rails on a Munsters pro? How does it look and do you have to add screws on the web?

#7328 31 days ago

Hi, i attached them.

there are screwholes in the spiderweb to fasten them very tightly if you like. I did not put them in. It works without them.
I think for home use it's ok, but if you want to have it on an open site, i would tighten them more.
There is an silver carton behind the black web, this creates more contrast. Before i bought them i had clear plastik button protectors.
I put them between carton and the steel web. This protects the silver, but the steelweb is bend a little of the pinball side.
But without them, i think it will definitly be good without additional screws.

Whenever I start a game, something is triggering the spot target and he is coming out immediately. Has anyone seen this or know a fix for this? Thank you

It takes more than one ramp shot to start spot so that's odd. Is spot mode actually running when it comes up?

Yes

#7332 31 days ago

I had the glass off the other day cleaning the machine and saw that I have a chip in the clear coat where the ball hits as it comes out of the trough into the shooter lane. I bought a few sheets of mylar so I can put some down to protect the area more. Is there anything else I should do to the chip to seal it or anything? It does look like it's down to the wood but is thankfully very small.

#7333 31 days ago

I would do a switch test to see if one of your ramp optos are stuck on or going on and off.

Is spot triggered to the spot mode? or is it only up for a little time. When i start a game my spot is always looking out, then after some seconds, or i guess when the first switch is hit it goes down again.
Could be some game settings.

Mine is like this as well. Comes up at game start and drops quickly. If you can hit it real fast it starts the mode right away.

Does it show the SPOT letters being hit as well in the beginning? SPO activated in the beginning

I think the mylar will be fine that you out down. Just keep an eye on it.

I did not do them. Mine came that way. I do think someone on here who powdercoats offers them though.

Yep....I think the first setting I had to change was him coming up during attract mode, however....used to scare the crap out of me.....I've gotten used to Raven popping out at the top of the hour, but even that can catch you off guard once in awhile......

Possibly best feature of the game beyond the mini-playfield for me....that damn bird!!!!

I want to make sure I am reading you correctly. You are saying I can buy a Cliffy made for Ghostbusters, make a couple of mods and it will fit right in as a replacement?

Yessir that's it,
Cliffy not sure if he will make "one specifically for Munsters"....demand,cost,already has one with the correct specs.-end user can get it fitted just fine-A guy can get his GB scoop fitted with minimal and easy Dremel massaging.

I've been trying these out recently on some of my pins. I like the fact that they cover the entire shooter lane. Bought them from Mezel Mods

Quoted from Thunderbird:

Didn’t mean it’s not universal, rather referencing the portraits and what they look like on the LCD, are the same portraits as the LE side blades. When you collect a member the portrait on the LCD lights up. Wondering if that has something to do with Secret Mania starting once all are lit up?

Again coming back to secret mania, i monitored how the portraits lit up on the LCD, i can not think this will work. And there is the Problem to get Raven lit up. I think this only possible in Raven Mode?

I researched a little more with pinball browser.
There are two sections that i can think of, that could have to do with secret mania.
The First one seems to be speaking of, that something is found in the game.
The second is "The Code is only usable in Gameplay" could be an indication that the secret Mania Code is something like the flipper Codes. What would makes sense if secret mania is a mode, then it should be only startable in Gameplay.

Well if we assume the code will be something like other flipper codes i descriped before, it would be a 3 digit number from 1-9.
3^10 is still a lot possbilities
