Not starting any trash but looking at BK makes me even happier I got Munsters since I could only own one

#2852 1 year ago
Quoted from DeathHimself:

I was thinking of pulling the cover as soon as it arrives and Mylar protecting it before any hazing or cloudy starts. Mylar is cheap enough to keep redoing periodically and now with the cover screws on top it just makes things a lot easier to rinse and repeat.

Just buy a spare cover or two...or 10.

Exactly what i was getting ready to post. BK looks sweet but its not Munsters thats for sure. The Munsters kicks Ass!

What are they like $75.00 a pop? Yeah I might grab an extra and toss it in the hole but, gotta try the Mylar for $3.00 route. If it don't pan out just peel and wax lol.

#2855 1 year ago

Got some scratches on the window already (LE) I did take it out on arrival and cleaner the dust... I bet a new window will be $200!

Raven Multiball lightshow looks different on the new code- really cool..

#2856 1 year ago

Surely to God that piece of plastic isnt 75.00-200.00 i hope? If they are that much they shouldn't scratch.

I was on Sterns site trying to find a way to order parts and see prices, the part # 545-1079-00 but had no luck finding it thus far.

#2858 1 year ago

That's it... I'm pulling all the bulbs and only playing in the dark. Dimples... hazing... What else do I need to worry about.

#2859 1 year ago

Bring on the topper I want that bird talking trash

#2860 1 year ago

The glass isn’t 200 no way
Call your distributor they can get it

Your wife leaving you because your so addicted to the game that you can't stop playing it. Every Munsters game comes with a set of divorce papers. They are located in the plastic bag that is stapled to the side of the cabinet.

#2862 1 year ago

Loaded the new code... had best game ever! Wont say the score... cuz suck regardless... but no issues I noticed....

#2863 1 year ago
Quoted from JMK:

FtrMech: Did you use a T10 (Torx) screwdriver to remove the screws?
I’m going to clean mine this week but was told this was the correct screwdriver to use.

Think this would be a good add...

Quoted from DeathHimself:

Question for you LE / Prem guys that have been putting some time in on your games.
Have you guys noticed any hazing or clouding of the lower PF Lexan cover like we have heard about on some the AC DC units and Lucy Units?

nope....just early dust, and an initial smudge of oil (guessing from the pinballs)..cleaned once when I changed all the rubber out.....been great since...

Titans...Posted pics a few pages back. They don't offer mini flipper rings yet, but believe in the works. Everything else done

Highly recommend doing this, considering the black rubber is definitely going to start marking up the window as they wear..

Just installed new code and had a decent game. Seems to be allot of new light effects - particularly making jackpots on the lower pf now has really cool light effects on the main pf. Makes them feel more integrated.

I’m sure I heard quite a few new sounds but can’t say what they were.

Machine freeze is gone.

Really enjoying this game. Shots/layout are fantastic. Like the basic code structure.

My code wishes:

- Would love to see good variation between level 1, 2 and 3 modes.
- Some sort of side modes - like eddy, marylin and Dragula. That are good for points, not just Supers. For starters, Just bring midnight madness in as one of those modes and make Midnight Madness a scream or something.
- super jackpot needs to show what your cancelling (points value) and what multiplier you’re running at.

I’d be really happy with all that. Please Dwight. This game is straight up fun. Take it to the next level!!!

Agree with everything you said 100%. This game is one of Sterns best.

Quoted from Who-Dey:

Ok so how often are you guys getting balls stuck in your lower playfield? Ive played two nights now and had to get in there and fish out a ball both nights. Is this common or am i just getting that lucky? Luckily i have a telescopic magnet that i fish them out with, best tool in my tool box. Just make damn sure that you turn the power off first if you use one to do this.

Here is where mine are getting stuck. It is happening quite often and yes, my lower flippers are set to "soft". Seems I could remove the lower playfield and bend the little tab in tighter that the rear plastic peice is screwed on to allow enough clearance so the ball falls back down onto the playfield. Not sure what to put on the left plastic that would look good to deflect the ball from getting hung up on the wire form though.

That's EXACTLY where mine got stuck at both times. It was a pain getting it off of the little plastic piece. I haven't had a ball get stuck though since the first two days thankfully.

I noticed on this last update the lower playfield flippers are on "normal". Wasnt they on hard on the previous code? They seem to be ok on normal.

Not that you should have to but, in the 1st orbit pic can you wax up that area to make it slippery?
Wire form.... what about getting a couple mini wire ties on the wire form and cut the tail of it off this way they close the gap ?
Might all be a temp fix in meantime

Question: how is everyone liking their Munsters premium?
Does the black and white look much better in person?

Quoted from J-drum11:

I love mine and will never ever get rid of it. The black and white artwork looks amazing in person. I thought it looked awesome in the pictures too though.

Quoted from johnnypinball:

I haven't had a problem but wondering if you added more pitch to the play field maybe it wouldn't get stuck there?

#2881 1 year ago
Quoted from JimB:

My pitch is at 7.2 the ball goes airborne and lands in there from the top and literally "wedges" itself against the 2 plastics that is why I think if I can bend the bracket back far enough to allow clearance for the ball to fall through to the playfield it would fix the problem. I don't think any amount of playfield angle would make any difference.

So what are your guys methods for getting the balls unstuck?

The first time I pulled the window out of the playfield. After that, I found a long skinny screwdriver that fit through the slots in the lower playfield and pushed the ball out. When the ball gets stuck on the wire form I flipped the playfield up 90゚ and it falls out. Ironically the last time I did that the other ball fell out of the out hole and got wedged into the plastic behind the machine as shown in the photo. What a pain in the ass!

Ive been using this. It does pretty well.

Yes definitely. How to keep that clean and clear is the hardest problem owning this pin IMHO

#2886 1 year ago

Any further opinions as to whether Pin Stadiums enhance the LE or Premium (lower and upper play fields)? Especially now that the code update has enhanced the lightshow?

I cleaned mine once to get the factory dust out
Then it clouded a little
Took it out again and cleaned it
It has never come back as of yet

There’s a post with them installed here:

I think you can tell from the downvotes what the overall opinion is, but you can make your own mind up.

Nope...I screwed up and used an Allen Wrench...lesson learned. Stern already sent me replacement fasteners but I like the looks of the stainless steel ones I replaced the original ones with. I will hold on to the original Torx screws, put them in the cash box. Regardless, thanks for the tip on the Torx T-handle set....it will be ordered.

#2890 1 year ago
Quoted from FtrMech:

If anyone else wishes to replace them to allen hex head screws, they are 6-32 x 3/4" flat head screws.

Iceman is setting his LE up right now. Another Munsters addict coming!

I am having a heck of time updating my software, and I’ve updated a lot of machines. Keeps saying I don’t have a valid file. Downloaded 3 times. Thoughts?

#2893 1 year ago

I dont know shit but are you dragging the file and dropping it in your USB folder?

#2894 1 year ago

Oh sorry, i just read where you said you don't have a valid file. You didnt download the read me file did you? Maybe you need to reformat your USB? im sure none.of that works so sorry in advance, just trying to help.

#2895 1 year ago
Quoted from Who-Dey:

Yep, dragging that file to the root of my usb stick. Like I’ve done many times before. Idk why it won’t take this one

Should that file have those numbers after the .spk ? Seems weird.

#2897 1 year ago
Quoted from chuckwurt:

I agree it seems weird, but I am following Stern’s directions.
1 - Download the zip file
2 - Unzip the file, this will create a folder that contains SPK file(s).
3 - Open folder, copy only the file(s) to the root level of a USB stick. Do
not copy the folder.

#2898 1 year ago
Quoted from vireland:

If you're using Windows to unzip it, use something like WinRAR instead. The built-in winzip extractor has problems with the Stern zips sometimes. Makes a bad file, but won't give you an error so you know.

I recall this
mentioned before

if you wanna try that..worked for someone else that couldn't make it work

I have good luck open /copy/paste

Same problem for me . I gave up after 3 try’s. Never had any issues on my Stern updates before.

#2900 1 year ago

Well weird. I think the file was always fine. The interface on the game is not very intuitive. I think I was unselecting the file and clicking select, so it said invalid. Idk at any rate it’s updating now. Fingers crossed. That interface on the game could really be improved so it obvious if you’ve selected the file.
