Quoted from JayLar:

Been playing the used PRO a recently bought some more and really like this game. The theme, layout and shots are really good. I have been bashing the code, and yes it would be nice with more goals - but the game is really fun and intense already! Love the combination of horror and humour. Got tons of mods ordered.

I hate to say i told you so, but i told you so!

A question for those who upgraded the speakers on their Pros to the Kenwood ones, have you noticed any better sound?

#4353 2 years ago

Yes. A bit. It’s a fuller sound. Cleaner highs.
And aesthetically it looks great, at least in the premium.

Ok! I got hold of the speakers but where do I get the rest of the parts needed for the Pro?

Quoted from cottonm4:

don't know why it did that. All is back to normal now, it seems; I'm getting several 1 mil-2 mil games again. Just lie old times.
What I have noticed is that my Herman magnet now seems to throw the ball a little bit. I have yet to get a Herman Hurry Up to see if it will stop the drains coming from the magnet release.
The sounds had seemed a little off time before. Now they seem to synch pretty good with the play field.
Other than the double action with the upper and lower play field both being active during Munster Madness, I can't place me finger on any other changes. I don't care for the double action play fields at all. I don't know about anybody else, but all I can do is flail about wildly and hope for the best. But I don't know what I am supposed to be doing. I"d like to turn this feature off but need to look into it deeper as I ddi not see anything about it the settings.
I don't know about your scoop issues.

I know there is an option to disable the lower playfield by itself which by doing so would result in M/Madness upper playfield only. But then you would be giving up the lower playfield all the time, something I wouldn't want to do. If you do find another setting let us know.

Yeah, if you are turning off the lower PF then might as well get a Pro. I find the LPF requires focus and concentration. I'm going to send an SOS to Stern. They turned it on so they can turn it off, too.

If i could turn it off for Munster Madness only and have it active during the rest of the game i would do that in a heartbeat.

#4358 2 years ago

I found as I upgraded the code my game scores got worse.mine is down for the time being.

It’s in the adjustments already. Under features. It’s called:

You can always only just hit the upper flipper buttons , just saying

Quoted from DeathHimself:

I sent a contact to Stern asking how to turn it off or if we can just ignore it. I’d be cool if with it if ignoring it does not affect anything.

#4363 2 years ago
Quoted from ShinyBall:

Yeah! That way we could easily compete with Who-Dey's well earned Super jackpot score. Might be the only way for me to get by him.
I want to earn my scores compared to the way the game is everywhere on locations and tournament play. No fun saying I reached a milestone by closing off or reducing the drains...for me, at least.
Getting a high score with all the challenges of the drains is rewarding..specially in a tournament play...or like Who-Dey / tpir did. congrats btw

Well said. I have my tilt bob backed out quite a ways so I can nudge this pin.

The drains are tough, I won’t deny. But they are not impossible. And I get a particular satisfaction of being able to smack the lockdown bar and having that ball bounce out of the drain and back onto the play field.

It helps, I hope, to make me a little bit better of a player. Like maybe someday I could enter a tournament and be able to compete.

The game is on Free Play and a new game is just a button push away.

To each their own, but I can’t see crippling the pin just so I can get a higher score.

And yesterday I reached my goal of getting 4 Eddie Loops. Next goal is 5 Eddie Loops. And I would like to get a triple combo on the ramps.

Ha...agreed...the game lives on the edge of frenzied to start with...MM just confirms it...I pick one of the two playfields and just go for it...I'll never have the eye/ hand coordination to sort that out....insane!!! (how people don't like this game is beyond me...absolutely a blast)

#4365 2 years ago

I get a lot better scores on my MBR...but yet, I want to play Munsters more ..cause it constantly kicks my ass. I want to beat this machine and it ain't ez.
Have I had some good games..yep! But have to say, I had more embarrassing scores..keeps me coming back. I'm hooked.

#4366 2 years ago

I've gone back and forth between my BM66LE and MunstersLE tonight.....an amazing duo!!!! Focused and cursing BM66 (2 of 3 TV scenes lit is as far as I could get), hanging on and cursing my Munsters (never even made it to MM...destroying me)..2 completely different and fun rides!!!!

#4367 2 years ago

Missed MM 2nite cause of Grandpa's lab this time, I got in there twice..but couldn't get it started. Darn,darn,darn!

#4368 2 years ago

MK6PIN: I went back forth between my Munsters LE and BM66 as well tonight lol.
Two such different pins and both a blast.
Played a bunch of very quick games on Munsters before finally getting things to click, reaching MM. Man toggling 2 sets of flippers is so tough.

#4369 2 years ago
Quoted from tpir:

Got lucky and was awarded Enlarging Ray from Mystery on ball 1 in the lab. Had a good run from there to get the 3 Grandpa super jackpots lit right out of the gate (Mystery, Grandpa, Enlarging Ray.)
Ended up with 8 super jackpots at 6x playfield during Raven multiball on ball 3. (The game said "you have ALL the super jackpots lit" so I got really excited, but I definitely did not have the Spot or Marilyn super jackpots lit.)[quoted image]

Just snaked you both; 8 SJ and 6x. So much fun.

You calling me a Crook Who-Dey ? Just because I beat your SJ score lol.

I’m at 248m (no ball save) for GC. Got most of that on MM with 6x running. What’s yours?

If i told you my high score i would publicly humiliate myself.

Lets just say its a lot less than yours, like 110 million less lol. Im going to push for a 200 million game though. I can do it i think. I do have a ball save of 7 seconds on my game though. 248 million is crushing it!

Not sure if the ball save makes a huge difference for most games. I think if you’re having a good game you’re probably not making making any use of it anyway.

#4374 2 years ago

Just put up this - 250m of it was on MM with 6x running.

#4376 2 years ago

Not sure if I dreamed this or not... but I thought I read somewhere that there is there a way to install the two lower playfield balls by pushing them between two of the plastics rather than having to remove the metal piece on the bottom of the playfield. Any help is appreciated.

That metal ball trough is only two screws. It takes literally about 1-2 minutes to take it out and drop the balls in and put it back in. Its a piece of cake. I think its a 1/4” nut driver that takes them out.

#4378 2 years ago

When I got mine the lower playfieild had some dust residue, So I needed to take the top off to clean and adjust it anyways, so installed then.

Geezers, I gotta start playing my game, I'm falling way behind in scoring compared to you high rollers. Getting to M/M about 2 out of 5 games, but just can't work both those play fields good enough to get good scoring yet.

Hey if you are getting to Munster Madness two out of five games you are doing way better than i am, i almost never get there. I told you to turn that 60 second ball save off!

The best method I’ve figured out yet is I concentrate on the lower playfield and I just hit the upper flippers whenever I see a main ball heading towards the flippers but I keep my focus on the lower playfield. That seems to work best. Since they tweaked it trapping the balls on the upper play field doesn’t really work anymore.

Well Who-Dey you have to remember that I had 550 games on my Pro prior to getting my Premium, so that prior game play helped. Also now that my Premium is on factory settings (except 8 sec ball save) I find it has made my strategy to trap up the ball and focus on overall ball control has improved my game play in general. The fact that this game plays so fast has also made my other games easier to play, thats a bonus.

Thanks for the recommendation gamerRick, I will work on that strategy, seems logical rather than my trying to train one eye on the upper and one on the lower like a chameleon, trust me that don't work too good.

Yup, now that all the rubbers are shipped out I can get back to playing, thanks!

Hi All - Some help needed... I installed Pingraffix Powerbladez but they only work when sound activated. I tried turning the dial on the power unit but all it does is change the sensitivity to sound. I'm looking to have them on all the time with the lightning effect. Am I missing something or is there a problem with the unit? Thanks in advance for any help.

That's how they work, sound activated.

For those of you that have purchased the DVD series since purchasing the machine... I gotta say I'm loving these old episodes.

I seriously can't pick a favorite and I'm so impressed that they have stood the test of time. So many of those old shows from my childhood are almost intelligence insulting – ha ha – but not the Munsters. It truly is a testament to the writers.

Stayed up till 2:30 last night watching a few episodes. Last night, Herman went out swimming and a Russian submarine thought he was a sea monster and picked him up. By the end of the show, he got them all singing and dancing. Lily couldn't find him and was pissed!

Anyway, my brother made a cool move and bought the series for me when I got my machine. Just wanted to pass it on if there was any interest. It has been posted by others before but as a reminder, here is the series.

I had to share this “stuck ball” situation with all of you!

About a week ago ... the ball barely made it up the left ramp, slowly disappearing behind the backboard. It never actually came out of the other side and down the wireform. I shook the game numerous different ways and it didn’t seem to help. The game compensated really quickly and spit out a second ball of which I figured, “okay ... I’ll knock the other ball loose with it on my next ramp shot”.

That didn’t happen. In fact, I forgot all about it.

For a week I’ve been playing the game and I completely forgot there was even a stuck ball back there.

Until today when I went to remove the balls (so I could put on some MODs) and realized there were only five in the trough.

“What the?!”

It turns out the ball was stuck on the switch behind the backboard and kept switching-places every time I hit the ramp. Which would explain why I forgot all about it, to be honest. Funny enough - the transfer was always seamless and the switch worked flawlessly.

Anyway ... there ya’ go. If you end up with five balls in the trough - check behind the backboard. Lol.

At shows there is constant noise so they run. They don’t work in attract mode, unless there is noise. The ones for AFMr are on a constant pattern, not sound activated.

The demo by pingraffix shows the Munsters in constant pattern as well which made me think that that was a selectable option.

I found when there is constant noise that they just stay on solid rather than go through the sequencing pattern

Working on assembly line can be tough ball busting work. I wonder what kind of turnover Stern experiences on its line. New hires can do some of the craziest things. That looks like a new hire mistake.
