Quoted from Thunderbird:

Has anyone tried seeing if this strategy works on Pre/LE?

I have a premium and I try not to have spot running while playing lower playfield as adding time via the right ramp also extends the spot timer

#10402 8 months ago

Well Stern finally sent my new playfield...easy swap, just 4 connectors however, I did notice something different...the mini-playfield glass now has cross-point/Phillips head screws...my original playfield had the Torx type.

[quoted image][quoted image][quoted image]

I have the phillips head screws on my mini glass as well

As long as you have the fatter deeper (at least on mine) phillips head for your screwdriver it works just fine, just take it slow. I guess at some point they started using those instead of the torx. It's mentioned quite a few times when people talk about leveling the playfield.

Just out of curiosity, how were you able to get a new playfield?

I had an issue where 2 of my playfield inserts started to sink and it cracked the clearcoat...wasn't sure what to do about it so I contacted Stern and they had me send photos...I soon received an e-mail saying that they would send a playfield replacement. It took a about a year but with Covid causing production issues it made sense. My original post and photos about it are on this thread, post #9488. I have to commend Stern, they didn't leave me hanging...they came through for me. I still need to send back my old playfield, just waiting on the shipping docs.

*RANT*
I think it's pretty clear at this point with all of the back and forth Dwight has done on Turtles and Mando in the forums that we were completely shafted with support after release of this pin. The "it's done" at 1.0 is a joke statement that doesn't follow with what he has done before or after Munsters. Definitely never buying another Dwight coded game.

Thankfully I don't enjoy turtles or mando enough to even consider them.

Keep the faith, there will be a code update for Stern’s Insider Connect bar! If Dwight has to touch the code for this, just maybe he fixes a few bugs, but don’t expect more content code. Munsters has been abandoned from the more code perspective.

#10407 8 months ago

not holding my breath for much even for insider connected and there is no way I would ever purchase that for this pin.

Your rant is pretty spot on it appears...just sort of unbelievable that the blatant " cut the cord" on such a great theme/game.

A new direction as far as I can tell for "mainstream Stern" regarding releases.

Fortunately, I love this game as is ( so do alot of others). No intent to move mine, but truly inexcusable to not at least work thru the bugs.

Dropping this game like a rock probably caused Stern to lose sleep....for about 30 seconds....

#10409 8 months ago

Interesting is that on the Stern Connected site, Munsters was the only table that said coming soon with an asterisk.

The asterisk says “pending licensor approval”.

If all they were doing was fixing some bugs and adding some achievements, why would that need special approval that the other games don’t need?

My hope is that it means more content has been added and that it just requires sign off.

Could be; but my guess is Stern will charge for additional content. Get you online, give you a base release and pay to unlock more feature content.

Unfortunately Stern is catching up with rest of gaming industry. This is unfortunate for all Stern buyers in the future.

Don’t like it, but call it like I see it.

Also, people will say I am no longer buying more Stern games; however, we all know most people will.

Your RANT is spot on, no pun intended, lol. Everyone in this club knows how hard I fought with Stern and Dwight to do the right thing by us, but they haven’t done so yet. Dwight dropped the ball big time on Munsters and he knows it. Stern do the right thing and give this a remarkable code update. I’m like MK6Pin and love the game/theme, even though it falls short of my expectation. Considering I also own all the other Dwight games where he gave them everything, kitchen sink included. At the very least Dwight Xaqery still owes us, more call outs (they are sitting embedded in the code unused), polish and fixes. What Stern/Dwight did to Munsters was unprofessional. Borg also was wanting more code love and supporting the effort, but Stern hushed him up. Come on Stern put on your big boy pants and fix Munsters!!!

Well said. I’m like u I love my Munsters premium n it’s not going anywhere. My kids n grandkids love it so much fun n a beautiful pin and yes it would be nice to have some more added to it n make it deeper but I tell ya it’s still a blast the way it is. Hopefully we will get some improvements from Stern.

#10413 7 months ago

Hey anyone got some good videos of the pin stadium lights on there Munsters. I’m waiting on my lights to come in, I’ve had them on order for 4 weeks now n we’re did you hook them up to for the best effect. I think I’ve got about every mod u can get on it lol

#10414 7 months ago

They did it with Ghostbusters when nobody thought they would. This should be easy enough with all the new code they’ve been doing with spike 2.

#10415 7 months ago

Actually, they did it with Ghostbusters and GOT at the same time. We will see . I read some where there was schedule time in 2022 for Munsters code development. Most likely total BS but who knows?

While Dwight takes a lot of crap over this title, I would bet it is more of a Stern Management decision. Management decides where to put resources on coding most likely , not the individual coders. They being said, I would love to see more assets put into this game.

Munsters has stayed in the collection longer than EHOH and BM66. Both those games are code Nirvana, so at least in my mind ,it is a fun factor that keeps Munsters around. At my place Munsters sits next to BKSOR (another code attacked game) and they both get as much if not more play than AIQ , JP3 and ST.,

#10416 7 months ago

We've heard so many times from "insiders" that a significant code update was incoming. Dwight has basically said he has no plans to change munsters. Of course he did say that about ghostbusters as well but that game was missing the wizard mode and inserts were unused. Who knows but at this point I don't have much faith anything will change. Too bad as by all accounts the game sold incredibly well. Just doesn't make any sense to abandon it so quickly.

I don't play mine anymore but friends that come over have flat out told me they will unfriend me if I ever sell it. My family also enjoys it but it will be gone in a heartbeat if they ever change their mind.

Hallelujah Stern finally has done it! Incredible!! Dwight is back in good graces! Can’t wait to explore it and so excited they put tons of speech into the game like it should have. Merry Christmas to us Munster fans!

#10422 7 months ago

It's a Christmas miracle

#10427 7 months ago

The timing of this drop was impeccable.

#10428 7 months ago

Can not down load right now. Ugh.
My problem not Stern’s

#10429 7 months ago

You guys owe me lol. I'd been holding out and have a great offer for my topper and quoted someone a price for the rest of the machine and 2 hours later they release new code.

Quoted from Lopa:

#10430 7 months ago

Thanks, Dwight it was a great Christmas gift. I’ve owned and enjoyed this game since day 1 when it came out. This game is one of the most beautiful games Borg has designed especially the ramps.

#10431 7 months ago

Alas, I should have gotten a topper when I had the chance. New code!! Woot!!

#10432 7 months ago

Thanks dude, I owe you a beer. When we cross paths in the wild just remind me.

A very welcome update, but no insider connected?

#10435 7 months ago

Finally gave up hope of a code update a couple months ago and sold my gorgeous Pinball refinery edition

#10436 7 months ago

A very welcome update, but no insider connected?

Let's hope not I was just informed the new codes with IC won't work unless you have the IC kit installed

#10437 7 months ago

Big thanks to you Dwight Xaqery and MERRY CHRISTMAS from all of us in the fab Munsters club. You’ve made our holidays!!

Quoted from Thunderbird:

well, not at that point (lol), but nice to see Munsters getting some love...

#10440 7 months ago

you guys will need to let me know how the update is. i sold my LE quite a bit ago... hope its fab!!!

#10441 7 months ago

Now that I've read through it the core of the game has not changed but it looks like for those that were looking for more theme integration that is what you will get. Clearly they had to add a new mode just to come up with the challenge feature. Every other machine I've seen with that mode it's the wizard mode or one of the mini wizard modes. I like that Marylin has more to it and I hope you will now be able to get more extra balls. We'll see. I am glad to see it was more than just adding a few connected achievements.

#10442 7 months ago

in fact, SUPER SPINNER & SUPER LOOPS will be the same shoots !? as the spinner is on the left loop...

#10443 7 months ago
Quoted from Thunderbird:

What’s a tje kit?

The insider connected kit. 2 people have verified to me this code will work without it.

Guys -

I was waiting for Thunderbird to sell his game but I guess thats not happening.

Seriously, I am sorry it took so long. There are reasons and some of them you can lay on my shoulders if needed.

This is the first of 2 planned updates. The second one will be in the future ( : -- ) and be mostly an Insider Connected update including about 70 Achievements .

If you like this update you can thank Corey, Danai, and Jerry; they did most of the heavy lifting. If you dont like this update you can blame me.

Merry Christmas

- Dwight

Lol, Dwight, great laugh, but my wife wouldn’t let me ever sell it, nor would I want to now. We love your effort and thanks for being such a good sport about all this and giving us Munster fans some more code love. Your legacy is now assured and with another update coming, I’m over the moon.

#10448 7 months ago

Twas almost the night before Christmas, and what was the matter? Just a bunch of angry Munster's owners who felt Stern had no honor. When out of my inbox, arose an email from Stern wishing all a Merry Christmas and new code as well! (Bought Munster's NIB, sight unseen, sold it thinking this day would never come, hoping to hear great things about this update!)

Merry Christmas and Congrats to all the owners who stuck it out!

Loving it…now can we all vote this game back to where it should be, in the top 10, not number 99, lol.

#10450 7 months ago

My wife loves this game - it wasn't leaving but I am of course thrilled with the update! Thanks Dwight!
