I'm going to jump in and join the club, as I placed my order for a Premium last week. I heard they will probably ship in March, but I have no confirmation of that. Has anyone got any inside info on Premium shipping dates?

My Premium is being delivered tomorrow. I can't wait!

#2520 1 year ago

Ok, just got it set up. And my first question is, so do the wireform ramps come uncoated or not chromed, just raw material? Mine sure look raw to me. I can easily see the weld heat marks. Also, every few minutes, theres a loud fan that comes on in the back box. Im assuming it's normal, but it's pretty darned loud.

#2525 1 year ago

Ok, so I called Stern, and the wireforms are left that way in order to look "industrial".....ok. The noise IS a cooling fan, but it's got to be mounted inside one of the metal boxes in the back box. I opened the back box and didn't see anything.

#2526 1 year ago

But that's trivial crap. I'm having fun! I recall someone said there were easter eggs. Off to find those posts!

#2528 1 year ago

Thank you DeathHimself. Thats a good post.

Quoted from Marvello:

Explanation from Christopher Franchi on the 'unfinished' wire forms, taken from an interview published on TWIP -
"So we’re [in a meeting] going through the CAD drawing…and I’m sitting there and right next to us, we have a whitewood, probably 75% complete. And he [John Borg] is pointing things out and I’m sitting down, and I’m kind of stretching up and looking over the rail into the playfield, and I see these wire form ramps. And they look like nickel, they’re not chrome, they’re like a dull metal. And wherever there is a spot weld there is a black singe mark on it, and I’m thinking “what is this” because I’ve never seen these unfinished…and I’m looking at it and I’m like “That is so Munsters” and…I said you have to keep these like this…it is perfect just like it is. Luckily they agreed. It wasn’t a cost cutting thing at all, it was an aesthetic choice. They still have it clear coated, but it was with that look. And it just looks fantastic in the game…John is very collaborative, it is – the word “team” is just perfect [for the group that worked on Munsters]."

Thank you Marvello I appreciate the info!

Is anyone actually selling those playfield windows yet, or are they still unavailable? I'd like to have a spare as well.

Marco is adding to their site late next week.
FYI - no luck in getting Stern to replace for free - even with dust concerns.

Thank you cpr9999.

#3178 1 year ago

I have tried turning off the video tutorials that happen while in attract mode via the adjust menu. I turn it off, and yet the tutorials still play. Is this a .99 code issue or is there something I'm failing to do?

#4099 1 year ago

Afternoon guys. I'm going to update to version 1.0 later tonight When I updated to .99, I lost all my settings and high scores, Champs, etc. Im assuming this is typical. That was the first time I've had to do an update, my other Stern is an AC/DC that already had the latest installed by my distributor. So, my question is, is there a way to save all that stuff to a USB stick before loading the new code, then simply load the settings afterwards, or am I just going to have to start over and also do all the settings from scratch? Thanks!

#4101 1 year ago
Quoted from ykes:

I updated mine last night and it kept them all - from 0.99 to 1.

I wonder if I did something wrong last time ..

#4110 1 year ago

Ok, thanks for your help guys! I appreciate y'all!

#4126 1 year ago
Quoted from Zukram:

You didn't do anything wrong.. 1.0 is the first version from Munsters to save settings from the previous version.. Although I am not sure if it would save settings if you upgraded from something previous 0.99..

Thank you much Zukram

Well, I got my Topper this afternoon. Got all excited, and installed it immediately. Clock runs most of the time, stops at certain times during the game such as end of ball, tallying points. But, the main thing is the Raven never came out of the clock, even during times he's taunting the player. Not good.

Oh, and also when first started a game, it wouldn't eject a ball at all. Once I turned it off, and restarted the machine, it loaded the balls fine, but Raven still would not work. Inplugged and replugged. Same thing. Contacted my Distributor, he has another and he'll swap with me.

#5154 1 year ago
Quoted from Truent:

I had all of the same issues and a couple others. Stern is supposed to issue me a call tag to return for another when they are restocked.

Following up, I went to my distributor yesterday with the intention of swapping my topper out with one of the others he had. Turns out both of those were not working properly, each having different issues. I ended up leaving mine with him, and he was on the phone with Stern. I am supposed to have one shipped directly to me once they verify that they have one that works 100%. As I understand it, the clock has is not supposed to spin constantly, but to follow the game clock and point to the current hour according to the game clock, except during game play and attract mode. Now, I noticed when I 1st put mine up, it chimed the correct hour, so I'm going to assume it'll do that every hour. Don't know how long it'll take to get one sent to me that is 100%, but this is an awesome topper, and I hope it won't be too long.

Has anyone heard any news on the Toppers?

#5333 1 year ago
Quoted from DS_Nadine:

It exists and you can buy it Sterns website.
Wasn't it advertised?
I saw it when I looked if the BKSoR side armor is out and wondered that the Munsters Topper it is allready available.

Yes, they were released, and pretty much every one had serious operational issues, so they've all been returned, and we're waiting on replacements, so I was wondering if anyone has heard any news on when the replacments will be sent out?

Quoted from dashv:

Played the pro version yesterday at an arcade and now I’m thinking of getting a Premium.
Op told me the premiums have an issue with lower playfield visibility over time due to scratches in the upper pf.
How paranoid should I be about this in a HUO setting? Should I plan on installing a playfield protector right away?
LOVED this game from play 1. Which surprised me given all the negativity I’ve read for it.

I ended up buying a new window for my Premium as well as for my AC/DC Premium Vault. The only reason I bought these is if I ever decide to sell, (which I doubt), I'll have brand new ones which have been put away. Just want to make sure that if I do sell way down the road, windows may not be available still, so me being me, I bought 1 of each.

#5595 1 year ago

I know everyone has been focused on playfield issues, but I was curious, what's the latest on the toppers being shipped back? Is it going to happen soon?

#5598 1 year ago
Quoted from Indypin:

I contacted Stern weeks ago and they said they just received a certain part in and would be shipping the toppers soon afterwards, but I haven't received any word since then. If I have to wait any longer, I think I'm going to use the money to buy some JP mods for my pin when it comes in. LOL

Quoted from dashv:

My Munsters Premium table is currently waiting on the topper before it ships.
Distributor is close to one of the factories. Stern told them Friday that the parts are in and installed. There was an issue before with springs not working as well as intended.
New setup is going through QA now.
Assuming everything checks out, they will be packaged and shipped out.
So hopefully just another week or two??

Thanks guys! I've got some time off next week and I was hoping it would be here by then. If not, oh well. At least it's getting taken care of and it'll be a fantastic topper when they do finish it. I'm trying to sell one of my motorcycles, and if all goes well, I can put my order in on a JP2 Premium. Fingers crossed!

Well, I'll tell ya what half the damned problem is, and not only with this topper, but with everything. Give us a DETAILED DESCRIPTION of what the damned thing is supposed to do! That way we can tell if it's working like it's supposed to! FFS, your client base spends a shit ton of money on your product. Tell is what we should expect! And what we should expect as far as playfields are concerned!

Quoted from MK6PIN:

It's truly a fun/ interactive topper, and mine has been working with zero issues on a nightly basis (after my last teardown/ reassembly). The Stern engineers thanked me, and said they would definitely address the issues I had found.....hope yours works great!!!!!

So.....does anyone have an idea when the rest of us might get a fully functional topper back that we can install and expect to work properly? It's only been 2 months........

#5911 1 year ago
Quoted from C0untDeM0net:

A friend arrived for my Munsters a few weeks back. It's a Steve Ritchie classic and we are having a ton of fun with it as well. I can only imagine what some people around here would think of a home arcade with this lineup. Must be so boring to some people. Shockingly, I want to fill out my wall with an EM machine like Capt. Fantastic. Munsters will be my deepest machine by far lol.[quoted image]

We have a F-14 and love it! Did LED's, and powder coated legs, lock bar, and side rails red, and did the wireform ramps in red, white, and blue. Also new playfield. 2nd one we've had.

#5961 1 year ago

Hell, I'd just love to have my topper back working. If I have to "make adjustments" like y'all did, fine. I just want it back. Preferably fixed.

#6011 1 year ago

All I can say is I love my Munsters Premium. I bought it NIB, and bought one of the last NIB AC/DC Premium Vaults back in January. Also have an F14 and a T2. The code depths are night and day between Munsters and AC/DC. I personally don't give a damn because I love playing all 4 games and they're not going anywhere......ever. I had to sell my colection 10 years ago, and started my new one at the beginning of the year. I had the 2 Williams games before, and loved them then, so bought them again. Bottom dollar line, as long as it makes the owner happy, that's all that matters. I believe the Stern games are great, and the company is certainly reputable. In fact, I ordered my JP Premium the other day. Just waiting on the return of my Topper. I stand behind Stern.

#6067 1 year ago

So, I see lots of people getting their toppers back. Are there still a lot of folks like myself, who haven't heard anything yet? Really would like mine back. It's been about 2 1/2 months....

#6070 1 year ago
Quoted from JMCFAN:

I emailed Stern because I want to order but show sold out. Reply was they are 3 weeks out from replacing the "backorders..." then they will be available to order...

I see they're sending replacements out to some in this group. Maybe 3 weeks until they're finished. Hmmmmm seems like a long time considering they couldnt have had that many out there that were returned. Just my thought.... Even if it was a few hundred.

#6072 1 year ago

I know it must sound like I'm whining MK6PIN, (probably cuz I am a bit I just want mine back so I can enjoy it like y'all.

#6076 1 year ago
Quoted from MK6PIN:

You're not whining at all...you need yours back....I'm actually whining ( a little) because I have to keep beta testing this thing....excited for the final product to be coded and working properly for everyone, including me!!!!

And I do appreciate all you done for this. They owe you a bit of compensation of you ask me.

#6107 1 year ago

Sooo excited! My Topper comes back tomorrow! Really hope it's all good!

#6109 1 year ago
Quoted from Who-Dey:

I hope it comes back fixed for you. Im still waiting on my 2nd replacement to ship to me lol. Fuckin Stern man i tell ya......

Who-Dey, man I sure hope so. I'm going to look it over real damned good. With any luck, it'll be good, and yours will be too!

#6111 1 year ago

Ok, hooked the topper up, and it appears to be working with no visible issues. Need to give it a close look Friday night. Will be looking to changing the Raven LED to a blue or purple one. Is the LED a socketed one, like a #89 or a #555? How many LED's are on it? It it like an 8 smd?

#6115 1 year ago

Thank you Mark!

#6141 1 year ago
Quoted from C0untDeM0net:

If they do dramatically change the game I would welcome it. I like the game as it stands but would love it with some more real modes and something better to do with that button than stupid zaps. A complete waste to me as well as dragula.
Thing is you don't have to upgrade to the latest code if you like it as it is as well.

Absolutely! That's why I keep a copy of previous codes in case I want to go back.

#6150 1 year ago

Ok guys, need your thoughts and ideas. Playing the hell out of me Premium tonight, putting my Topper to the test. Up front, love the hell out of it. When they tweak the code issues a bit, it'll be functionally perfect. Now, my problem. And I want to know if I'm not alone, and what a good "fix" would be. In our game room, we have 2 pins on 1 wall, and 2 on the opposite wall, arranged to receive a 3rd when my JP Premium comes. My Munsters is on the wall where the 3 will be, with it in the middle. We have bar tables and stools at each end of the room, with barstools. The problem is, the seating is at about 45 degree angles from the Munsters. The LED PCB's that light Lily and Eddie, are fully exposed at that angle and are horribly bright and annoying. Im thinking if maybe the MOD people who can mold plastic can make some kind of blinder, like a horse blinder, to keep from blinding me or my guests. If I put the machine on either end instead of the middle, it still happens to some degree. Now, Im not bitching about this being a design flaw, I'm just trying to cure an anomaly in my case that bugs me. Anyone else have this, or have any ideas? Any of you MOD guys that can make a set of blinders that look good, let me know...

#6153 1 year ago
Quoted from MK6PIN:

Fair question....I love the crap out of this topper, and when they sort the couple bugs it's going to be a must have. I've got mine on the end of a 4 pin row, as I wanted the awesome art on the machine prominent. Problem w a blinder or shroud is the light still sort of leaks around the characters (especially Eddie), so might not cure your problem. It does light the entire character, so don't want to screw w that.
Not seeing your setup, you may want to put it on the end, closest to facing your barstools, etc. This might minimize off axis glare at those seats. Just a guess....

That's a possibility, but would prefer it in the middle. AC/DC on the right, Jurassic on the left. The blinders idea isnt meant to go in front of the light, but to go on the side of Lily and the side of Eddy. Just trying to reduce glare on the sides. There will be light leakage on the sides, but better than the blinding. (Or was that because of the drinking hahahaha)

#6158 1 year ago
Quoted from MK6PIN:

Bourbon night for me, so they're all getting bright....
Set up like that, I think sunglasses should be mandatory at the bar....

Nope, Bourbon or Whiskey makes me stupid and all I want to do is fight. Tequila, beer, Captain Morgan, etc I'm just as happy as a pinball addict with a pocket full of money !!!

#6175 1 year ago
Quoted from pinballaddicted:

We have the same issue. We are thinking about moving the LEDs further back into the housing. At the moment some of the LEDs are flush with the hole. Get some longer bolts and spacers and see how that goes. Only issue is we will have to pull most of the topper apart again to do the job

I like that idea! Might give that a try.

#6212 1 year ago
Quoted from oldpins:

I don't have a topper for my premium as yet, however my brother has one and I did notice the LEDS (Not sure on LED diameter) behind the acrylics (Eddie and Lilly) were very bright when viewing from an angle. Thought this 3D print could be placed around the LED could eliminate the problem. Double sided tape on the 2 square tabs could be used to mount over/around the LEDS. Adjustments to the 3D print could be made if required. Let me know your thoughts.
[quoted image]

That would work. I'm guessing it's installed from the inside so the tabs are also on the inside. Also, I was thinking a piece of black plastic about as thick as a thick business card, in like a "C" shape. Squeezing it down, inserting it in the hole for the led, and releasing it letting it expand into place.

#6213 1 year ago

To test, I rolled up a slice of a business card, but it wont go in. The LED PCB is flush with the plastic. So..... I just put a business card between Eddy and the back plastic. Works fine. Now, if someone could make a piece of plastic with a bracket to attach to the existing nut, I'll buy a pair!

#6223 1 year ago
Quoted from Yelobird:

Honestly a hammer. A good smack and it will crack to pieces. Might be simpler to just order a raw shooter rod from Pinball Life though.

That's where I got this, hahahaha. Should have looked a little harder I guess Thank you, I'll give it a good whack.

#6259 1 year ago

Happy Friday! Ok, my Premium started having flipper issues. The right flipper is slow to return to home and now only returns about 7/8 of the way. What do I need to do under the playfield to correct this? This will have to happen tomorrow, because I refuse to try to work on my machines after adult beverages. It's safer for them hahahahaha! Thanks in advance guys!

#6261 1 year ago

northvibe , what exactly is the coil stop? There's the coil, within a bracket, with the plunger actuating whatever it's hooked up to. This is the basic configuration. Only recently have I heard about the "stop" If possible, could you post a picture of one, and where it typically breaks?

#6263 1 year ago

Wow! Thank you sooo much! I really appreciate y'all! I'll take pictures and post tomorrow. Tonight, I'll be smart, and move to another machine.

#6268 1 year ago
Quoted from northvibe:

From experience I bet the coil stop broke inside the coil sleeve. Ya you’ll need to open up the game and remove the coil stop to verify or inspect why it’s slow

Good Afternoon Guys, well pulled the coil stop off, everything was fine. I certainy felt a slight binding when moving the left flipper manually versus the right one. So I just loosened the front coil plate, put the rear back on, and just realigned everything and it seems to work much better now. I really appreciate y'all!

#6274 1 year ago
Quoted from Who-Dey:

Sounds like your flipper plate was a little loose and it moved on you and bound the flipper up. My left flipper on the lower playfield did the same thing. Glad you got it fixed.

Thanks Who-Dey !

#6337 1 year ago

Ok, I slid my Premium about 4 feet to the right to make room for a new addition, and checked my angle and levels, and it's all right where it was, where it should be. But, now 90% of the time the ball is ejected from the Grandpa scoop , BOOM, straight down the middle! Any suggestions?

#6354 1 year ago

Ok, so the same damned problem is back. The right flipper is slow to return to home position. It's relatively fast returning 3/4 of the way, but slow as molasses the rest. I bent the return spring bracket a little to make the spring a little tighter, and that helped for about 10 minutes, but now its back to the same. So slow it's messing up follow up shots. What the heck do I need to do to fix this? Stronger spring? Contact Stern support?

#6355 1 year ago

Well, I know we'll get that weak flipper return issue fixed, but on the mean time, this is the wife enjoying our Munsters Premium. We put a couple old lamps above it on a shelf, and I like the look ! Notice there's a lot of room on the left of Munsters? JP Premium comes Tuesday!

Quoted from cottonm4:

Last night a friend took me to a bar/arcade I did not know existed.
The lineup:
Jurassic Park Pro
Black Knight Pro ( I think )
Munsters B & W premium
I did not feed the Munsters since I have one.
I'll probably go back to try Black Knight some more.
I did not care for JP at all. I guess there is lots to do. I may feed it one more time and give it a chance, but first time around it did nothing for me. Not my style of pin.
I am happy where I am at. Munster stays.

cottonm4, I have no idea how the Pro plays, or how that guy who has the route has his Pro set up, but, I got my Premium a couple weeks back, and its an awesome game. Tons of fun! Give it a chance.....

#6707 1 year ago

Good Morning. So, this morning I'm going to do a little upgrade work on my machines. One is going to be changing out the light behind the raven with a colored one. I got my 5v lights from Pinballife. I noticed that these leds, as well as my 12v leds, aren't marked in any way noticeable as to their voltage. My 5v are in a seperate baggy, and the baggy is marked. But I was curious if there was a way to distinguish between the 2 voltage leds, and also what the consequences would be if the wrong voltage accidentally installed?

#6713 1 year ago
Quoted from ramegoom:

Light a 5 volt LED with 12 volts, it burns out immediately.
Put 5 volts in a 12 volt LED, doesn't light, or barely glows.
Do either in reverse hookup, neither will light.
Always check voltages when swapping LEDs. How well it works comes down to series resistance added to the LED.

Thank you ramegoom. I was hoping for some little mark on the led itself for quick identification. Yes, I alway use my meter to see what's being fed to the led itself. Yep, I sorta figured 12v to a 5v would fry the led. Just wanted to make sure no other damage might occur. I really would've thought the manufacturer would stamp 5v or 12v into it. Anyway, thanks for your help!

#6714 1 year ago

Had a choice of Red, Blue or Purple. Went with Red, and it looks great! Purple probably would've looked good too, but it was hard enough to change the led with my fat hands, and once I got the Red bulb in, it was immediately decided Red was the winner! Hahahahaha

#6781 1 year ago

Good Afternoon. Is there a way to add a little directional adjustment to the VUK coming out of the Grandpa Scoop? 95% of the time it kicks the ball out of the scoop, it wants to head SDTM between the flippers. I'm not one who likes to nudge, and it's getting annoying. I put the Grandpa Scoop Rubber in there several month's back, but it was doing the same before that. I'm thinking there may be a way of loosening the mounting screws and cocking it to the side just a hair then re-tightening, so it doesn't slam a fastball right between the flippers. Any thoughts

#6785 1 year ago

Hmmmmmm..... ok, Wednesday night, I'll open it up and see just where my side to side level is at. Make sure there's no tilt issue. I never see the ball favor one side of the machine or the other, but I'll get this figured out. Too bad I can't reduce the power to that coil. I don't ever remember seeing an option for that in the utilities. Flippers yes.

#6791 1 year ago
Quoted from DeathHimself:

Awesome, I do have a question. I don't have the ceiling height to allow this topper on top of the machine, what is the supplied wire length? Thinking maybe I can side mount it on a shelf next to the machine, just a thought. Thanks.

Mine had a length pretty much the height of the back box itself. There really isn't any extra length. But, I'm sure you could grab a longer Cat5 cable, and splice a section into the power cable.

#6822 1 year ago
Quoted from wtatumjr:

My Aerosmith was doing this so I reduced the upper trough kick out power a lot until it wouldn't even kick it out, then increased the power a bit - do this with the glass off so you can keep placing the ball in the trough. when you get five or so successful balls to flipper leave it be. Keep in mine you might have to increase strength over factory settings instead of decreasing according to which flipper you want it to go to.

I looked thru the adjustments, and couldn't find one specific to that VUK unless I missed it, I don't think you can alter the power on that one. If you know which adjustment number it is, please let me know. I added 1/2 a turn to the right rear leg and that has helped without any noticeable difference elsewhere.....yet.

Quoted from Who-Dey:

My wire form looks just like that one. There is no coating or finish on it at all. There was originally going to be but the crew making the game thought that it fit the games look without any coating on it so they just left it alone. They liked the old and aged look that it looks like. I think the reason you are noticing the welds so much is because the picture is probably blown up really big. My wire form looks just like that one anand it looks great I think.

I agree totally. I think the industrial look works perfectly. My wireforms are exactly like yours, and I believe though, that they were clear coated. Mine are too shiny to be raw material thats been welded. The welds are even shiny.

Quoted from cottonm4:

I put the monster flashlight on and lit it up. I stand corrected. I can see weld burns on mine that match the pic in question. It looks like there is some sort of finish on but the flashlight lays waste to that observation. They are bare metal. But there is some kind of coating on; They might have been pickled in some sulfuric acid; Perhaps for rust inhibition.

Yes, there is definitely something. The wireforms would have to be stainless steel otherwise they would definitely get rusty, especially around the welded portions.

Quoted from ThatOneDude:

Not to my knowledge(but again, it's on route, so I'm not the main player). I do have it bouncing out of the grampa scoop a lot, but I can't tell if that is a change or if my aim is just crappy.

There was also a Pinsider Fix for this. It's a rubber dampener that goes into the scoop. I got one and it works perfectly, no more bounce out. Look around post #4323

Well, I'm sure I'll catch a lot of crap for this, but in order to keep peace in the household, I've decided to leave the club. I traded my Premium in yesterday for a NIB Iron Maiden. My wife and I both agreed that we needed something that would hold our attention better. Trust me, this is not something I'm all excited about. If fact, it's weird because I feel that I should be more excited that a new pin is coming, rather than feel bad that Munsters is leaving. But in the long run, I have to do what it takes to make sure all our machines are ones that keep us happy. So, I'm headed over to that club. Take care guys, and I hope that much needed code comes to y'all soon!

You son of a ......
No reason for anyone to give you crap, you got a better game. Enjoy your new game, IMDN os one of the best games that's ever been made. Did you get a Premium or a Pro? Both are great.

You will love it. I have a premium as well.

Thanks Who-Dey! It's good to have a familiar voice here to visit with! My Distributor is getting some piece from Stern that goes up at the top of the playfield, some sort of piece that was getting dinged up. He's gonna install that before he delivers it.

Yep I installed mine and bent it like an idiot. I hope stern will give me another one.

Hahahaha, glad my distributor is doing it then! Ok, see ya over there!
