Quoted from MK6PIN:

I just saw the thread, left a couple posts, then left it, period. Pathetic justification at its finest ( " I don't like it, so you're an idiot if you do").. ridiculous

Quoted from Ven:

I am not really sure I have seen many people "hate" on the game though

I may not like or care for a particular game...but, I wouldn't feel the need to start a thread saying so. You can give your reasons in existing threads, but when you start a thread like that you know you are up to no good...but, just don't care.

Wheres the topper sneak peak at?

Just watched the topper teaser video.
Looks sick!
Stern is upping their game on toppers!

Where did you see this would love to check it out. Thanks

#1906 5 months ago
Quoted from Spacemanratso09:

I like that you only have to start lily and not complete her or any mode to qualify for MM
I have been trying to combo her with Herman to actually complete her and move on
Then with different levels in MM makes each time there if you get that far interesting to me
I wonder if something will be added if you actually close out every character in one round

On the PREM/LE code .91 code I played yesterday you can't qualify grandpa or MM till you activate The Machine, which requires 3 shots. Which can take a few trips back to grandpas lab to achieve if at all, love it.

Same on current code too.

Quoted from FightNightFZ:

Anything seem missing? Can’t figure out why the LEDs won’t work.
[quoted image]

Really difficult to tell from the pic, but looks like a jumper is missing pin 2/3 (ill post a pic in a sec)

Otherwise..

Did you hop into the menu, and verify that the backbox led brightness was not set of 0 or off..

When you power up, do the LEDs come on for a moment then shut off..

#1915 5 months ago
Quoted from JMCFAN:

Will pick up... whats thought on price?

I’m guessing it’s $399 like all the others they’ve offered recently. I just joined stern insiders plus for $29.99 and they sent me an email showing that prototype .

#1916 5 months ago
Quoted from bigd1979:

Guys.. apparently our beloved munsters pins are the biggest disappointment in pinball history.... I'm really surprised so many people don't like it. Its really well done and the new code added some depth to the pin. Not every pin needs to be jjp deep. People love the b/w pins and this is similar but with much more content , strategy and its just fun to play. Its nothing new or innovative but its just a nice fun pin that can be brutal. People are so ungrateful and sld be happy for new stuff..but instead they find hate in everything these days... so annoying. If you don't like it buy something else.. no need to start a rebellion.

Let them commiserate together lol. Those of us that love it will form the other side. Eventually I guess we will have a Braveheart battle akin to Sterling and that will finally settle it...

#1917 5 months ago

OK everyone wanting to see the new topper it’s only available on stern insiders plus website and there’s no way to download or share the link. So I had to film it with my cell phone and upload the film sorry for the poor quality but you should get a good idea the thing is pretty cool.

Quoted from Ven:

I am not really sure I have seen many people "hate" on the game though I am not out there looking to find people who hate it, but to be fair if you have people spending close to $6k for a pro and more than that for Prem and LE's then it doesn't make much sense to say that the consumer should be grateful to buy something. It's the manufactures who should be grateful for us spending our money on their machines and do the best that they can to make them enjoyable and reliable for the consumers. If you have everyone out there raving about something it will never get any better. Pinball is not an inexpensive hobby and I personally don't want to spend thousands of dollars on something and be tired of playing it in a month.
I think Munsters is a good shooter and well laid out but I am not a fan of the Munsters Code at this point in time, why? Because there is a single path to points and it forces you to play the game the exact same way every time you push the start button so, it's all or nothing points wise. After I play a few games on mine I am done with it for the day, it's not like it's so good that I must play another game. It's like I play a few games get to Munster madness and then "ok I am done". It really is crazy how much code influences the how much you enjoy a game but the good thing is code can be changed so hopefully that happens with the Munsters because I like just about everything else about it besides the current code.
Don't let others influence your love for the game, if you like it you like it if you don't you don't. But you can't expect others not to discuss their feelings toward something just because it doesn't match your feelings towards it. Just because your thought don't agree with each other it doesn't make either person more wrong or right in this situation. I like most of the system 80 and 80b gottliebs and most out there hate them but that doesn't at all bother me because they don't have to like them. So I guess I would say it doesn't make me unhappy that they are unhappy with what I like.

One path but it’s a hell of a path

Anything with The Munsters in it Chuck! I would even buy Munsters underwear if they made some!

Quoted from Lermods:

Make your pitch a little steeper, try 7-7.5

Tried pitches from 7.0-7.5 and set flippers to soft. The air balls angle differently but frequency is the same. The lower to upper play field seams may be an issue too. Mini ramp.

Or even perhaps... a Munsters pinball machine?

Lmao well ok maybe i wouldn't buy Munsters underwear then. I'll buy lamps, cuckoo clocks and figurines and stuff though all day long!

Yes Sir, definitely getting one of those.

Seems like someone told me once upon a time that if up and down flipper shaft gap isn't gapped correctly it could cause airballs. Might want to pull up and down on the flipper bats to see if and what kind of play you have there. You could also call Stern, they might have some tricks or some other ideas on what to do.

#1929 5 months ago

Are you guys referring to the “I don’t like Munsters thread?” That’s nothing compared to what us B66 owners put up with. Always find it weird that people need to start a new thread about something that they could just express in a single post in any of the existing Munsters threads.

#1930 5 months ago

Just glad that garbage isn’t here.

#1931 5 months ago
Quoted from chuckwurt:

True, keep the hate in its own thread.

It’s almost getting to the point on Pinside that we need an Owners thread and a Haters thread for any particular game.

Pretty much already there. I’m active in almost every new stern owners thread and I own 2 of them. Haha

Yeh at least the owners threads are at least pretty much guaranteed to be positive.

I think it’s a pinside rule too. Can’t trash a game in the owner’s club.

Ain’t that the truth. BM66 got crushed

Had my LE for 2 weeks. Love it....kicks my butt.... but that ok...

I’ve had a blast playing the LE. The lower playfield was just as good as I hoped.

#1938 5 months ago

Hey folks, I am not a Munsters owner but I played the LE and LOVED IT!!!! Congrats if you got one.

I made these for my GOTG but I think they are just as relevant on Munsters as anything. It's a lightning bolt flasher dome cover. You can order it in most colors but you can also clear resin.

There is ZERO markup on these it really is that expensive to order it in clear resin.
I haven't marked these up yet because I'd like as many pictures on machines as I can get.

There are 2 options for clear resin, smooth fine detail which is hazy clear, and smoothest fine detail which is more clear (looks way better)

Just paint with Tamiya clear blue, purple, or any clear or transparent paint to get a colored effect.

enjoy.

I hope i can feel the same way about the lower playfield as you do. That would be epic for me and the icing on cake. I also gotta get that topper. That thing is just sick!

#1940 5 months ago

i Like the lower playfield cause one trip you spot on hit everything and you think well I have that nailed
Next trip your flailing away trying to at least get mystery
Not a gimme great toy

Looks like your missing the small black jumper.

You can take wire and short the 2 pins (middle and right pin) to verify that is it.

If so, Stern can send you one. Or you can find one in an old pc you no longer use!

Finishing touches and setup done...Love the "mustard gold" contrast w vacuum gold coin bezels.

Went with glow Titans for flipper and sling, other rubbers, purple posts and bumpers upper and lower, changed that bats to black...

Machine is done, and plays as great as it looks. No way I could be happier w this one
