Good post,Agreed PoMC,
Thx for the speech attentuation tip to 45,
Those little girl sounding call-outs are about the lamest in pinball.

#11502 1 year ago
Quoted from PoMC:

MUCH more enjoyable gameplay with the Speech Attenuation set to 45. Quiets that truly awful voice of the woman pretending to be Marilyn. Doesn't quiet down the TV show callouts much, which is great.
Why aren't more TV callouts being used instead of the lady? At least the Paul Lynde impersonator should be the only callouts that aren't from the show. Huge mistake. I don't know how you guys have been enjoying the game being forced to listen to her.
Such great callouts, like:
Spot. Where are you Spot?
Spot where did you go?
Spahhhhht?
Eddie. Eddie. Eddie.
There you are Eddie.
Oh Grampa.
Herman is boosted.
Grandpa is going to win our car back. (WTF?)
Stern should know that female callouts in pinball just don't work well. Elivra being the exception.

I rather like all the callouts.

That, said. You are entitled to your opinion and I’m glad you have found a way to tune the game more to your liking.

#11503 1 year ago

I love the MUNSTERS have I said that on here before lol.

#11504 1 year ago

I always thought the female voice sounded more like Lilly than Marilyn, which makes more sense.

I've owned my Munsters Pro for a few weeks now. I have such a love/hate relationship with it. It's ALMOST the closest thing I've ever had to a "bolted to the floor" machine but I've come to the realization what keep me from this being a favorite of mine ... the SPOT shot.

Apologies if this is kicking a dead horse, I generally don't like to listen to impressions/reviews and such (unless it's SDTM because those guys are awesome!), I don't know if many others have mentioned this. The SPOT mode is too long and too dangerous of a shot. I've thought about changing settings but I don't want to turn off the SPOT popup off because then it becomes the same as other modes in the game. I don't want to turn the "pause flipper timer" off because then I'm just waiting around 30 seconds for the mode to run the timer down. If I keep it on default settings and try to complete the mode I'm losing a ball 95% of the time trying to make it through the mode.

I have seen the strategy of shooting the right ramp to time out the mode, but frankly that sucks and (IMO) should never be the best way to run through the game.

Any thoughts that will keep me enjoying this game for a longer period of time? Like I say, I absolutely LOVE every single other aspect of this game.

I cradle the ball with a flipper and take a beer break to regroup my thoughts on next game strategy.... agree to avoid hitting Spot, well maybe hit him once, as the rebound can go anywhere and the lights dim when he’s hit so it’s hard to follow the ball too !!!

I agree the mode is too long but I'm not sure how they could fix it. What really sucks is completing the mode in 5-10 seconds and then having to wait. I just want that super so I don't keep shooting after I get that as the risk reward is not there. The safest shot is a backhand from the left flipper and I never shoot it from the right. I wish the mode would just end once you get the super.

#11509 1 year ago

If not for that shot, I’d find the game too easy.

So I’m kinda glad it’s there.

I try to go for it first thing rather than leaving it for last. If I’m gonna fail, I’d rather fail fast.

#11510 1 year ago

To help with the spot shot I almost feel like they should switch the mechanics between the Herman mode and the spot mode.

Just spitballing here.

#11511 1 year ago

Guys,

I am looking for the Wolfe shooter rod.. The stern one (502-7084-00) not the knock off one that’s floating around.. Does anyone have one in stock or for sale? Tnx

I agree. I am not nuts about fake Marilyn but turning Speech Attenuation up to 45 makes almost all callouts quiet. Herman, Paul Lynde, etc...I am willing to put up with Marilyn so that I don't lose those other callouts.

#11513 1 year ago

Has any had the main flippers die (loose power) on Premium? I have had the flippers go dead during Herman multi-ball on Premium B&W fully updated (and previous releases too) and am looking for a starting point to resolve it. Power is back in seconds. Some lights may be affected too... almost like a node board resets?

I’ve never had that happened or anything on mine yet it has been flawless. I haven’t heard anyone having this problem that I can remember.

haven't had this with flippers go dead, but i had something with the upper playfield losing shortly power. In my case it was the left lane wire that was bent and sheared of the cables of the opto on the left ramp. This when shooting up there i lost power, and herman did release the ball in when it was catched with the magnet. This is not what you got, but you have a shortage on some place?

or as you already indicated the nodeboard may not good any more. Maybe reseat the cables on the nodeboards. I am not sure, but can you maybe change the nodeboard with another machine? Or maybe this board is interchangable with one present in the machine and will wander if changed. But i do not too much about this.

#11516 1 year ago

I was playing my Munsters premium n got to Munster madness. My 6year old grandson was playing tmnt next to me when he heard me say Munster madness yes and then it was papa let me do it I said ok u have to do all four flippers at one time.

I used to have a Munsters pro and found a tube with the bottom of the cab art. I forget what I paid from stern but if any one needs the cab art I would sell it for $75 shipped. It’s the lower cab sides only. Not front or head. See part numbers

Any tips on cleaning the lower playfield plastic cover?

Also received my new washers for the lower playfield, hoping replacing this will finally solve my constant leveling issues.

#11521 1 year ago

Had my first Munsters problem last night. As soon as I press the start button to begin a game it plays the animation of Lilly throwing the barrel under the stairs and tells me I have completed Spot Level 1. Does anyone know what might cause that?

Just take it out n clean with a little glass cleaner. I bought 2 new ones from pinball life to have as I have seen mine starting to show some wear. The washer will fix the levels on it I did mine and it is great

well you can either remove the plastic on top.
Or you can just leave the plastic and remove the lover playfield from under the playfield. It's quite easy. Only one cable i think and some screws.
But not so many as when you remove the plastic cover from top. And you do not need to level it.

#11524 1 year ago

Check the opto on the spot ramp.

Maybe I’ll grab a back up. I’ve been waiting to clean it for when I go to do the washers and wasn’t sure how good it will clean up. I’m hoping I’ve got all the majority of the flipper dust out of them.

I’m assuming as long as I take my time I can probably just lift the whole thing and even keep the screws in the plastic. Some of the washers will probably just stick if not all of them

Thanks, I was just looking through the manual on Stern's website a few minutes ago and it does seem that is the best place to start.

check if the herman munster bash toy wire form (left side) has contact with the opto. Sometimes the wireform will deform and shorten the opto, sheer of cables.

#11529 1 year ago

Agree with Lopa and cabal wire will bend from bash toy and hit opto causing problems look at 3D printing on pinside for fix cabal might know! Easy to remove grandpa lab for cleaning than trying to level out Playfield IMO. Fitted Precision Pinball Halo flippers and bushings, recently makes a difference to gameplay and appearance John is doing a great job with these

Man can we dream lol. We got 3 code updates last year n have wonder if we might get at least one more which don’t get me wrong I love my Munsters premium and think it’s a great pin but one more pull out all the stops code update would be fantastic. Lol

Thanks, look forward to seeing the pics and I see I had a typo .... I plan on getting a set for my The Munsters in early 2023, like to see what some colors look like.

wonder if John would considered making small halo flippers for grandpa’s lab? I think they’re the same size as other mini playfield games but don’t know these new Sterns off the top of my head. But I guess a bunch of small flipper parts would need to be designed like the bushings, etc. so maybe not enough demand.

That stinks. We have a few members in our pinball group who can get a bit rough with the machines, so I go to great lengths to secure everyrhing. The vehicles are held in place with strategically placed zip ties that loop through the base.

there is a special midnight mode. Set the system time to near midnight (or stay up playing) and at midnight, if you are in a game, you'll have some fun
