Noticed on the DF stream with the Prem when a ball was stuck on the lower playfield the chat and DF mentioned a rail Stern is adding to LP, and can be requested if you don't have one. Anyone know what this is about ?

Sounds like it’s to prevent stuck balls. I’d get with your distro to get one if you need it.

Quoted from MK6PIN:

Acknowledges how cool the lower pf is, and how brutal the machine in general. He was killing it!!! Saw alot I've never gotten to (screen stuff that's hard to watch while playing)....this machine is sooo underrated!!!

Yep was watching the stream last night as he was rocking, picked up on a lot of never seen footage. Jack has that lower playfield skill shot pretty down pat as he was nailing it quite a bit. I also noticed in the chat there was an extraordinary amount of love and praises for this game, rightfully so it's a dam great game that's a blast to play.

#3254 4 months ago

Ok Spaceman, I took the challenge, Zap Champion started with Who-Dey to step up and challenge others and then pick the next Pinside Munsters owner to set the next challenge. Going to start working on those Zap's to up the number some. Let's go guys, start posting your Zap scores!

Pages 64-66... the same years The Munsters was on TV. Good years.
What are the best mods people are liking? What are the disappointments? I've seen some Tesla coils that look good, and some that look pretty cheap. Replacing the Grandpa shinkydink with the 3D model of him in his chair seems like a good one. The domed eyeball also looks good.

Grandpa for sure! - installed

In addition for my taste I also like:

Dragula Drag Light - installed
Sewer Pipe Drain (waiting on availability)
Spot Staircase Banisters - installed

Agreed...Very entertaining to watch...The actual vibe for the machine is much more positive than the hate threads suggest...suspect it will ease w time, and the machine will get the appreciation it deserves...A real change w b&w option, gorgeous, and a sick lower playfield..don't really care about negative posts about it anymore, as I love the damn thing....

I've only done Titan rubber for pf mods at this point. Can't pull the trigger on grandpa's chair, as it's just too close of a mimic of Uncle Fester's ( have my HEP TAF way too close, and want MunstersLE to stand on its own.).. Gorgeous machine!!!

Doggy's Din Din light cover
Drag light tower
Mod Couple:
Replace the Grandpa shinkydink with the 3D model of him in his chair
Cover the poppit with the domed eyeball

Yeah it was awesome Who-Dey. The more I play this pin, the more I love it. It’s now my favorite over Deadpool. Absolutely never get tired of it. And the light show is killer with the pinstadiums. I have the baby pins set to purple. Totally cool effect whenever the lower PF lights up. Just everything together makes this pin a knockout. I’ll probably keep it until it falls apart. I know some of you don’t like adding aftermarket lighting to this particular pin, but I absolutely love it and I’ve got so many cool mods in the machine it’s just perfect now.

Do you have the Pinstadium fusion's or the standard ones.

Wow Rick, you set that Zap bar pretty high, great score! This game does rock, I'm having just as much fun working the invidual scoring modes as trying to set overall high scores. If things work out I might have my Premium in a couple weeks. Keep those Zap scores rolling in everyone.

We should make Rick reset all of his scores and start over.

I broke my Herman plastic however. Stern doesn’t even have any available yet LOL. Like they didn’t expect them to break. Got a plastic protector set today definitely the way the ball flies around hard in this pin think I need to put those in ASAP.

That looks like an easy fix. I would know more if I knew from what direction the ball is traveling from to get there, but it looks like an easy fix. Does it come across the top of the plastic from the Mystery Lane? Or is it shooting up from the left side from the Lite Machine light? Or can you even see it as it is happening?

As I sit here and say it will be an easy fix, the best way is for the factory to make a small mod to habit trail.

#3281 4 months ago

I"m getting tired of just sitting here reading about you all jazzing about your Munsters. I'm just getting tired tired tired; I cant stand it anymore. I'm gonna get me one of these Munsters. Come hell or high water !

Mine got hung there (1x) in now several hundred plays. Was able to nudge it out without tilting...Guessing some games it's more prevalent.

I just hooked up my sparky tv using the power tap board. I was so excited to see the tv come on. Game booted and then 10 seconds later I get this "check power distribution board". mini tv is still working. I cant get into settings or anything. I even tried to fire up a game when it booted and nothing. Has anyone installed the MDM successfully. I'm still running .96

Regarding the ball catch, I sent this to Chas at Stern this morning. Sarcasm intended We'll see.

Chas –

Look at the shrunken ball in Grandpa’s laboratory!

Seriously, the ball keeps getting stuck here. Happened to me twice last night. No way to continue the game since the lower playfield is then out-of-order.

I saw it happen a lot at the Texas show. Even the Marco guys told me that it kept happening all weekend.

Any fixes coming out? Thanks – Larry Schmidlin LE#484

So finally got to play this game (a PRO) on location. Really liked it but it does have it's pros and cons.

On the plus side: Love the theme and music, perfect for pinball. Fast and actionpacked game with quite a lot to handle, trying not to drain. Awesome ramps and loop shots. Fantastic artwork on playfield and cabinet. Fun (!) to play and gives you that 90:s pinball feeling again!

Negatives: The on screen interface looks really bad, really a shame (although I get that it's not easy making something look good together with the old clips). Code is really pretty shallow, as most people already have stated - this fabolous theme needs a more solid code with more modes, tasks and moments connecting to the tv-show. It's so close to being an all time classic. Spot should have a spotlight, almost missed him popping up.

All in all a really good game that I kept putting money in. Must be awesome on location and as a casual home pin, perfect for playing with friends on parties. Almost (!) pulling the trigger on one for myself, but waiting for a serious code upgrade first.

I'm checking on this. Let me know if updating the code fixes it. I've sold several of these for Munsters without issue, and Mezelmods tested on their own game without issue, so not sure why distribution would be a problem.

#3290 4 months ago

I moved Grandpa's Dragula to the top of the plastic. Yes, I know it is now subject to ball catches, but I've played a ton of games and it hasn't happened yet. Looks so much better than being hidden under that plastic!

I know he's facing the wrong direction, but there's so much detail on the front of the car.

Before/after shots (before shot was really just taken off the Internet)

Talk about top notch customer service! I emailed sparky in a panic at 1:17am that I was having problems with the TV mod causing a board error and he replied 5 minutes later (faster then anyone on here haha) Sent him a pic of the power tap and got an email back before 10am this morning with a solution to the problem. Thanks sparky this kind of CS goes a long way, I'll be buying more mods in the future!
Oh and the best part was the TV mod was working I just couldn't start a game so I cracked another beer and just watched some Munsters it's the coolest.

Quoted from JayLar:

The on screen interface looks really bad, really a shame (although I get that it's not easy making something look good with the old clips)

I grew up in the era of black and white TV. One of the shows we watched a lot was fuzzy screen. When I see these old clips on 4K they just look super (Watching Twilight Zone on a 65" 4K TV makes these old fuzzy's look like I am standing at the director's shoulder as filming is being done--the clarity actually took some getting used to). I think it is all in the perspective of where you are coming from.

Quoted from JayLar:

Spot should have a spotlight, almost missed him popping up.

I agree completely. Cactus Jack's Pro is in a room with the house lights turned down low. It is impossible to see Spot.

Would be easy to do for Dwight just make a "Valinor" mode if you can cash out the max Super Jackpots and make it past 2nd level Munster Madness.

What about a premium with a lower color playfield, or vice versa?
