What flipper code gets you the Apricot clue?

#7452 14 days ago

It’s my understanding the codes are associated with letters and each code has three letters. The numbers are their position in the alphabet.

So 26 would be the highest number.

So the flipper code for ZZZ would be:

Both flippers once
L 26 times
R once
L 26 times
R once
L 26 times
R twice to confirm.

Hi chuck,
yes thats what i am thinking too, would make the search much more complicated, we are then speaking of 3^26 possibilities for Flippercodes instead of 3^10.
But on the other side i have not found any flipper code in Munsters that has a higher number of nine. Maybe coincidence or they are lazy and don't want to put in codes with higher numbers
So i am still hoping the secret mania will still be in the range of 111-999, that a word was uses with letters fromt he beginning of the alphabet.

so hope we are now searching for Herman that translates into a three letter word or Number:
https://scrabble.merriam.com/3-letter-words
it's showing 1095 possibilities

Just found this threaded spacer below the play field along with a broken piece of plastic from Herman's cover piece, I cant find where the spacer would have come from. Anyone recognize?

Call stern and make a claim. They have a fix for the herman plastic. They will send you a new plastic and the metal that goes under it. To help prevent the plastic from being broke again.

#7457 12 days ago

That spacer looks like the counter weight for spots trap door. It attaches to the door under the ramp which may have to be removed. Look to see if it's threaded on both ends. Also look for two screws.

#7458 12 days ago

Got my lower playfield fixed where the balls were getting stuck behind "the machine" and gave everything a good cleaning, man what a gorgeous ass looking game Munsters is! Its also a lot more fun now that I dont have to worry about the balls getting hung up.

I did find this problem with the Spot coil though under the playfield. The plastic piece is loose that the wires connect to, any suggestions?

That is normal for the coil to move around like that. There are 2 screws on the side that lock the coil in place. Make sure they are there and are on tight.

Have fun!

If coil is loose no problem there.

If you are saying the square plastic (coil base) is separated from the rest of the coil plastic bobbin then that would be a problem.

You can move the plastic piece left to right, it doesn't come off of there or anything like that, just moves left to right. The other coils dont do that.

Without looking at mine most metal coil brackets have 2 screws on the back with slotted holes. Loosen the screws and smash the bracket against coil and tighten if it bugs you. Not required if everything is working with coil.

Would you please explain this using the word “Herman” as the code? In other words, how would Herman translate in flipper presses? Has anyone tried this yet?

It doesn't bug me, I just thought maybe something broke.

Hi,

yes thats the big question, i only got this as clue. I know what ever has "HERMAN" to do with munsters. It's like what has bender to do with Futurama and so on. On the Word and Character "Herman" i am working since the beginning on the quest for secret mania.
And i am breaking my head how we could translate that or other words that have connection to herman will translate into a flipper code.
i tried herman as a direct flipper code, with a letter translation like chuck said A=1, B=2, C=3 and so on until Z=26
no luck there.

#7466 11 days ago

With having to be indoors we've been doing more pinball nights here at the house and we've been noticing quite a few bugs with multi player modes. One of the big ones is that grandpa will suddenly be relit on the next ball after having been completed on the previous ball that drained without re qualifying. Happened to my son and I in the same game. Also the mystery light won't be lit for everybody and sometimes lit twice for player 1. I got raven and herman hurry up on ball one and ball two in the last game we played. I usually play alone so have not seen these issues until now. Really strange stuff with multi player.

#7467 11 days ago
Quoted from Who-Dey:

You can move the plastic piece left to right, it doesn't come off of there or anything like that, just moves left to right. The other coils dont do that.

You need a spring washer to add some tightness to it. Or, as mentioned, there might be a couple of screws you can loosen and adjust.

https://www.marcospecialties.com/pinball-parts/242-5103-00

Actually you could probably place one or two pieces of masking tape on the end of the bobbin to help tighten it up. Or you might even be able to remove the coil and tweak the bracket a little bit.

Is it the end of the world if your coil is moving around? No. But a loose coil can rob the plunger of full movement if there is a lot of slop what you are showing is not a big deal. Still, it is better if the coils are tight.

Quoted from Thunderbird:

It doesn’t. It’s got 6 letters. Does anyone have Herman’s initials? If so, then you’re in business.

I tried researching if Herman had a middle name but came up short

#7470 11 days ago
Quoted from Puffdanny:

Well there are only 26 combinations H*M.

Also maybe just HM.

Also maybe Fred Gwynne’s initials?

FHG (Gwynne's initials) did not work for me. It was a good idea.

What about - HIM or HER ?

#7473 11 days ago
Quoted from oldpins:

What about - HIM or HER ?

HIM = 8 9 13
HER = 8 5 18

don't work but nice ideas.

#7474 11 days ago

tried some more,
aah
dog
bad
big
die
guy
pig
sky
sos
son

#7475 11 days ago

man?

#7476 10 days ago

another nice one, but no
also MAF no

#7477 10 days ago
Quoted from cabal:

another nice one, but no
also MAF no

We must all put our heads together on this one to figure it out. Who cares Dwight said tell no one. I’m telling everyone so we can get to the bottom of this. Lol

I’ve tried the following related to Herman:

He got a hit on the head and went by John Doe Munster, so I tried:
LR - B
Left/ D - 4 - Right
Left/ O - 15- Right
Left/ E - 5 - Right
RR

J - 10
D - 4
M - 13

He was created at the University of Heidelberg
U - 21
O - 15
H - 8

None of those worked.
Any more ideas concerning the clue word “Herman”?

#7478 10 days ago

Hehehe,

too easy to find. But what a bad clue
Let's try DAD 4 1 4
then i get "only usable in gameplay"

??

I just tried that in game play and it said: Welcome to the Munsters

Is it only 3 letters at a time we can use? Can we use any more than 3?

#7480 10 days ago

I think the flipper codes depend on the programmer. And as chuck stated before normally they are like Charakters transform to Left button clicks. On the search i have done in the internet 3 letters seems to be the most common. Like the initals you put in highscore.
And on the Munster i only found with 3 letters.
It seems the code activates the "Secret Mania Trigger" in gameplay. Like when you are waiting for the ball to be kicked you can activate it.
Then the message "Welcome to the Munsters" appears to show it was sucesfull
I think there is a certain combination of gameplay that will then activate the trigger and the mode starts. So the next step happy playing and find the steps to start the mode.

#7481 10 days ago

I have 5 apron covers ready. 3 are spoken for. The other two are available to the first two pinsiders that private message me. Pricing is going to be $125 plus shipping.

If there is enough interest, I can certainly make more of them.

Did you use stronger magnets to hold in place?

Also, interested in see a version for colored Munsters game. Not sure what color(s) to make it.

not sure if this can help, and if there's a link to this but :

just watching (ok i'm late i know lol) the Stranger Things series, and on season 1 episode 4, El is in the lab, and must "listen" (for dad) a man saying words... one of these words is APRICOT

!?

Have to watch the episode. We know how to start the secret mania, but the initial trigerring for the first clue is still a miracle. Maybe there is more cross reference. But would be a "STRANGE THING"
thanks for that information

Quoted from sulli10:

The cover just sits on top of the existing apron. It is held in place with magnets and re-usable Scotch brand adhesive strips. The adhesive strip stops the sliding.

crazy its about 39 mintues into the episode. Well as german, it's even harder to connect. Its Aprikosen to Apritcot, but still the same words.

Thanks!! I have not thought about making a colored version. The screws and washers are stainless steel, so I don't think they will anodize like the aluminum will. I guess I could have the body anodized, and leave the screws and washers their natural color.

Midnight Madness-Munster Madness
Fun fact. I have set my machine to have midnight for 7pm, to have the possibility to sometimes play the midnight madness, what a very fun mode is to play. I had now ready Munster Madness ready and the clock went 7pm, Midnight madness kicked in. I thought what.......
will the Munster Madness be lost? Well no they stacked up, after the Intro of Midnight madness my first ball went just right into grandpa
and Munster Madness kicked in. Multi-Multiball. I had all 6 Balls on the playfield, was a bit overwhelming.
The Sequence of Munster Madness sometimes was seen. Herman->Raven->Lily
Too bad it did not taike too long. It was a bit too much.

I figured it out, a few months after I got my Munsters Pro, Stern sent me a brand new fully populated play field because of some clear coat flaws, the spot counter weight came off the original playfield and I am just now finding it and the two screws. They must have revised this because 1000 games later its still on tight. Thanks for the info!

Figured it out and it’s a rush. The exact kind of thing Munsters needed. Now bring on the additional show material modes and we’ll have a top 5 game! Big thanks to you for getting on top of this!

#7494 10 days ago

If Dwight will just do some more of this in regular game play, we’ll have a super winner all those that bailed, will want their game back. Munsters has everything else going for it. Terrific shooter, lots of toys, lights are fantastic, the ramps are sheer fun, we just want some more TV series integration in the way of modes.

How is Munsters madness trigger?

You enter DAD via flippers than what triggers it to start?

#7500 10 days ago
Quoted from cpr9999:

How is Munsters madness trigger?
You enter DAD via flippers than what triggers it to start?

Hi Munster Madness is triggered with completing all 5 modes, Herman, Raven, Lily, Spot Grandpa
Secret Mania needs to be activated. You do the Flipper code for DAD = 4 1 4 = BLLLLRLRLLLLRR
B=Both
L=Left
R=Right
This needs to be done in an active game, not the attract mode.
For muliplayer it has to be done for each player individual. The Code will persist the whole game. If a ball drains it will still be active for the next Ball.
The last think i know on my pro machine is to go into grandpas lab when it is lit. I there needs to be done more before, because on a lot of games this only was net enough.

Secret Mania is a fun little mode. You need to chase all 5 Family Members like it was said in the code update file:
– Added Secret Mania – You need a code. The first clue of the code is findable
– Each of the 5 family members has an area:
– Lily: the LILY bank
– Eddie: Either Orbit
– Herman: Herman toy
– Grandpa: Left ramp
– Marilyn: Right ramp
– Shoot each area to collect them. Collect all 5 for a bonus.
