If I were to get a pro, I would have to change out that green t-trim to purple or something.

Quoted from JMK:

Considering all the negative posts on the hype thread, is anyone re-thinking their purchase?

Not rethinking Munsters LE..but, for a time I was re thinking MBR LE

#120 5 months ago
Quoted from Who-Dey:

Munsters or MBR though?

Short answer is both.

If only one..struggle for me, I go back and forth on this. Monsterbash proven for me, I know what I'm getting. Falling in love by the day with Munsters since I happen to collect Munster stuff.I really didn't want both..but the wife was totally on board for 2. So, I said ok it's your fault then...I feel better now

#129 5 months ago
Quoted from Yelobird:

Close. Thats a Win, Win, Win! Great games (2) and a winning wife that is on board and wants the same. Score!!

Thanks!
41 plus years..Awesome Gal

She let me get monster mansion slot machine...(distant cousin to the mbr LE) been a crazy time lately.

#132 5 months ago
Quoted from hockeymag8:

That is way cool!!! I have a Double Diamond slot

I believe the double diamond had the longest run, very popular fun machine. congrats

#135 5 months ago
Quoted from Yelobird:

Very cool congrats to you both. Didn't get to see what the photo was but it sounds like she has the same taste as my wife for slots. Have several now lol.

Smaller pic now. (I hope)

Quoted from tmntrule999:

I love it. My all time favorite slot machine to play at the casino was Creature from The Black Lagoon. So sad it is not around at casinos anymore
[quoted image]

But... the good thing is that you "can" buy this model..so many various games. (nice game by the way)

#157 5 months ago

Lighting bonus.

Quoted from crazypinballguy:

It's official ... last night, my wife and I ordered our first ever NIB from Flip N Out Pinball ... a Munsters Pro!
I had A LOT of questions and LOVE talking pinball ... Zach was AWESOME!! ... He spent almost an hour on the phone answering all my questions and chatting about pinball.
I'm excited to add Munsters to our gameroom!

Zach, is a hell of a nice guy!

#314 4 months ago
Quoted from Who-Dey:

So to all of the people complaining about the code on Munsters, are you talking that it is shallow like MB, AFM, MM and other 90's games or even more shallow than that? Im just trying to get a good feel for what all the negativity is about? I gotta believe that this game at least has as good of a code as MB. I would hope so anyway. If it is similar to that i would think that alot of people may actually welcome a pin like that. Not every game has to be GOT deep.or TWD deeo to be fun.
Help me out here and explain your shallow code complaints a little more in detail please.

I'm kinda sick of the bitchin' you want more??

#317 4 months ago
Quoted from bigd1979:

It very much like mb but with many more layers to the scoring , jackpots, zap pots, levels and boosting.

So there would be little reason to own both?

#406 4 months ago
Quoted from Spacemanratso09:

I am not out money since I sold a couple to buy it.

Does the deep pockets theory apply here?

#426 4 months ago
Quoted from jfh:

Always wondered if shaker motors contribute to node board failures in Spike/Spike II games.
Don’t know what shaker motor effects are in Munsters (don’t know if the Pro and Premium I played had them installed), but I think shaker motors are generally over rated and wouldn’t go out of my way to add one to a game that didn’t have one.

Shaker in my TFTC (1993) no issues as of yet...and I think it adds..IMO

#428 4 months ago
Quoted from luvthatapex2:

Right, he is asking if the shaker effects the node boards. The node boards are only found in SPIKE games.
btw I love shakers too. I have them in all of my games that support a shaker.

True..( I shouldn't have compared to spike) but, he also said they were "over rated" I truly believe it does add to the game..especially if a non pinhead comes over, they go whoa!

#478 4 months ago
Quoted from MK6PIN:

Agree, and sadly has become a trend on pinside for some time now....I drained it awhile back. Looks like this club thread is picking up steam, and probably the best "home" for Munsters posts, imho.

I did the same thing only "announced it" (drain) and got moderated..hoping for same as you stated.

#556 4 months ago

Being told I can expect my LE towards the end of the month.

#724 4 months ago
Quoted from Zukram:

Heard that my LE is now expected late Feb early March.. So I wonder if mine just did not make the first shipment, or if the news of them shipping this week was just inaccurate.. Anyone else get updates on ETA for theirs ?

I was told last week, to expect it towards end of month. LE
So sounds like the same time frame.

Got my LE today..no issues.. the shooter lane ramp was beveled/filed from the factory..yeah!
The lower playfield had a little smudge (dusty). no big deal..happy happy happy!
Received my Monsterbash LE today also..absolutely perfect..what a day!!!
WoW Wow Wow....I love it when things come together!

#1488 3 months ago

Thanks Guys!

#1525 3 months ago

Got to play my 1st Munster Madness..Wowza like 4th of July. Game is sick. (I just got it delivered)

#1574 3 months ago

My wife has been playing the crap out of this game like no other before..especially when I showed her she can launch the ball with the "zap" button instead of the plunger. (she has carpel tunnel) and that helps her greatly in extending her playing time on it

#1761 3 months ago

I had no problems with windows zip, EZ clean install...but was prepared to use winrar if it didn't.

#1801 3 months ago

Just a quick comment....I have a Munster LE and a Mbr Le...Even though I think the Mbr is drop dead gorgeous, I see myself wanting to play more of the Munsters. I'm glad I have both and honestly don't think either are going anywhere. Maybe it's my fascination with all things Munsters. ( been collection them for many years)
I'm really glad I stuck it out with the Munsters. with all that neg in past posts. I think it has (for me) been so much better then I thought it would be.. Both games have been solid (lucky I guess).
I do Have to say, that Mbr feels like it is built like a tank, such a solid feeling machine and you can feel the better sound quality. Both are great additions for my game room. Winner Winner chicken dinner!

#1824 3 months ago
Quoted from GamerRick:

Going to ask stern to dial back the super jackpot shaker programming.

I did ask them about making the shaker adjustable...they said that they had enough complaints to forward it up to look into making the shaker adjustable. (like low med max).
I turned mine off till / if that comes around. If anybody also feels that way I would suggest calling, maybe it will be in the next update that way.

#1826 3 months ago
Quoted from MK6PIN:

Isn't there an adjustment already in there (though I saw one in the menu, mine was set to max and I left it)? I'll look tonight....
The effect definitely can be subtle, then cabinet rattling depending on what has been triggered. I'm still trying to keep all my senses engaged when I hit Spot..whew, powerful!!!

That is for how often it comes on..or how long is my understanding?
I asked "specifically" if there was a way to tone down the power (mine as others have mentioned) shakes so hard it can't be good..like I think I would see loose screws and nuts eventually. He said there is currently no way to do that...but, said he has enough complaints to address it up.

shaker options are:
Minimum use
moderate use
long use
maximum use
none
Mine shakes hard even for that minimum short use..just not as noticeable cause it doesn't last that long.but bad enough for me.
I'm thinking ..The setting "long use" should be a clue here on how it works.

#1901 3 months ago
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.

#1971 3 months ago

Has anyone removed the star screws to open the mini-playfield yet? Is it okay and easy to do that and put it back on?

#2332 87 days ago

Put me down for " I like the lower play field". Had another guy over today that has played them all and said, this is his favorite now (lower).

Gettin' purdy good on that little bugger

Adjusted shaker 90 degrees one side as suggested..really helped. Looking forward for a power reduction in a future update hopefully too. would then be perfect.

#2358 86 days ago
Quoted from Jackalwere:

we are gravitating towards monster themes

Ever since I was a child I had a love affair with Halloween, or anything that fell along with haunted spooky scary looking houses skeletons ghosts, many of the large witches draculas mechanical characters spider webs cornstalks pumpkins gothic lights candles paintings art ect. (all on the light side, nothing evil hardcore demonic)

The pinball machines are the "large cars" of my theme collection.and I love it. This is a great time to be in this hobby for this theme. Happy to see another.
Wish I had a minty class of 1812...maybe some day

#2362 86 days ago

Got Munster Madness 2 times in the same game tonite, almost a 3rd, just needed spot, then I got the right drain. Called the wife down to see it starting with the 1st one, she loves this game and is very competitive..hahaha honey. When you get a game like that makes you love it even more. I usually don't play that well.
Even a squirrel can find a nut once in awhile though.

#2366 86 days ago
Quoted from bigd1979:

You have .96 code? The first madness is a mini version and second is the full version.. im not sure about the third one

Yes..thanks...Yeah I don't know what the 3rd would be if there is one ( I really didn't even know what the 2nd was, lol) I was just trying to keep it going. I was worn out after it ended. Would have been fun to find out.
I do know when both play fields are active..I'm going to pay more attention to the upper next time. That is a crazy deal working 4 flippers at the same time trying to pay attention to both. I know I let too many balls get away on the upper.

#2597 81 days ago

heh, Grampa's lab calls off my LE number..kinda cool...one of only 3 possibilities. 543-432-321..I like mine.

anyone else?

#2625 80 days ago
Quoted from 1956PINHEAD:

My average on a Pro with new code, posts lowered, 10 sec ball save is 65-75 Mil with an occasional game in the 165 mil range. That said my game is also set to 5 balls, but on those games where I've scored high it's always been on the 3rd ball, then I start loosing focus and rapidly drain the 4th & 5th balls. Shit, might as well switch it back to 3 balls

Yeah, we are about the same age (I'm a little older). 6 sec ball save, 3balls tried 5 just for fun for1 nite went back to 3..I get those numbers too..some a little less.... got to be our age... ummmm could be the daily beer too

#2670 79 days ago
Quoted from Who-Dey:

Thats a pretty long time seems like buddy! You are entering Senior Citizen settings territory there!

Quoted from Who-Dey:

Lol well i think i may put mine on 6 also then! Im not really sure what the purpose for no ball save is but i kinda like having a ball save.

Well, back in post #2625 this senior set it at 6 seconds so you going to join the seniors? lol

#2843 75 days ago

download new update and installed...1st game I got Munster Madness! Not the highest score I ever had 51mill but, still achieved it. I was able to set shaker from min to moderate now with the update w/o shaking the crap out of the game (much better). Good update..but looking for more in near future.

#2845 75 days ago

After I won "Grampa's jackpot" and it ended..my lower playfield temporally went dark..scared me for a sec...then it came back on after I lost the main play field ball. Never did that that I can recall...new code lighting? Anyone else see this?

#2847 75 days ago
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?

No (LE)
But:
When I got mine I did blow out sawdust entire play field & underneath and upper / lower,... basically everywhere. Cleaned the cover and adjust.
Still show clear and clean.

#2898 74 days 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.

#2913 74 days ago
Quoted from Who-Dey:

Anyone who listens to the haters on this game that was interested in buying it and then decided not to just because of the few people that ran the game into the ground is making one big ass mistake, thats all i got to say. This game is fun as hell in many many ways and its not going to get old or boring. Its so challenging that it makes you grit your teeth and hit the start button over and over and over. Ive been getting so pissed trying to blow this game up that im about ready to pull the damn hair out of my head, all three of them!

Confession time.
I fire-up my Munsters LE more then My MBR-LE..for whatever that is worth. Obviously a Awesome, addicting game for me.

#2946 73 days ago

this is one update I may not bother with

ok..I might as well..but I don't really see the need here.

Menu is now purple instead of green
Remembered my settings this time..nice
also saw a additional clip from the show that I never seen

#2989 72 days ago
Quoted from 1956PINHEAD:

Ok, looks like I have to do a little more beating up on Herman then this weekend!
Hey Spaceman, why don't you pick next weeks challenge, and then assign the following to someone else in this thread, and then that person selects the next challenge etc.
BTW, can you belive all the posts on "the worst code ever", what the F!

I took it with a grain of salt. Worst code / bad code/ ect has been said about MANY games on this site. I just don't get the people that feel the need to "start" a thread about it. Many motives possible. It's seems to be all about them rather then contributing to discussions.

#3042 72 days ago
Quoted from Spacemanratso09:

I got a new pin but keep going back to Munsters

Yep

#3099 69 days ago
Quoted from FourFlippers:

We're running our Munsters LE at The Pinball Lounge near Orlando. Game plays great but we're having to remove the lower playfield at least once a week to clean the dust off the underside of the window. Is anyone else having this issue? I think the dust is coming from the flipper mechs on the main playfield. Tempted to install some type of gasket to lower the dust.
Thoughts?
Thanks,
Ed K.

I blew out the entire machine underneath and on top (removed lower playfield cover). Cleaned the cover. No more issues with dust.

Quoted from chuckwurt:

Right but if people do research before diving in, they would know that extra editions are always a possibility. Just another thing you need to factor into your buying decision.

^^^that

I did think it would eventually show up...why wouldn't it? but, so soon is bizarre.

#4278 34 days ago

When I buy a used game I need to look a little closer now
I too get sick of some game plays I have had in which I have my share of drains, and it is aggravating..but I don't want to change the dynamics of the game. It's kinda like pulling up bowling lane guards for the grandkids.

#4316 33 days ago
Quoted from cottonm4:

Why don't you just stretch a rubber band across the two posts? Then it won't drain at all.

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

#4318 32 days ago
Quoted from cottonm4:

When you think about it, we all have no way of knowing of who is playing and honest game or who shoved some paper towels into the drain holes.
Long time ago I found an online site to play Spades live. Cell phones were still charging by the minutes. I would not even think about it now because my opponents could be talking strategy over their cell phones.

I'm hoping that we are more honest here with posting our champion awards...3 ball factory settings. but, good point.

#4338 31 days ago

I rather play a 5 ball game then use the ball save. So simple to say, "I got that score with 5 ball". But, then again.. you can say the same thing with ball save

***I really do wish we had the ability to set ball save for 1st ball only..but, for every ball? a little much for me.***

If I want to play a longer game for fun and work on my skills, I will set for 5 ball and play without the play-field hacks as shown here... when I win a champion with 5ball...I use the name 5ball ( changed from 3 initials to 7 in settings).

A whole lot of people use ball save and even some locations, and I do get it , and don't really have a problem with it and I'd rather see this then a play-field hack..at least that is a setting change over changing the play-field as it was not intended

for fun, I looked into this on past pinside discussions..like here. some do... some do not. To each his own.

https://pinside.com/pinball/forum/topic/woz-are-you-using-ball-save

"this is just my thing".
It's all fun and good

#4365 30 days 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.

#4367 30 days 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!

#4378 29 days 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.

#4415 26 days ago

Haha..this is getting funny

#4439 24 days ago

For this EZ, boring, no good code game as stated on the "hate" munsters worst code thread.. sure are alot of people trying work arounds to get a good score.

I got my Munsters LE and MBR_LE at the same time...although I believe that my MBR_LE is a prettier game to look at, and the build quality is better, (IMO). Munsters is more challenging which makes it more fun for me. I'll keep both, but if I had to let one go it would be my MBR. Those haters hate..they just don't get it and NEVER will. Munsters is still a great looking game, nothing taken away from that. The younger generation that has no ties to Munsters may pass it by, and that in it self makes perfect sense. I feel that way about some of the "new" titles that come out.

Get your Munsters if you are on the fence and discard all the crap...it's a good game and if it can be updated, all the better. I always heard that MB can get old fast..honestly that is true. (and I would have never have thought that). It is a impressive looking game to anyone who comes over and absolutely fun for newbies. I still will play it, just not often. probably 10 to 1.

I can beat the crap out of my MBr...not so much Munsters. You "need" a ez playing game that is still fun? get a MBR, it is awesome looking addition to any line-up, and the toys are call-outs are fun.

Are there more challenging game then Munsters? Of course! but, Munsters seems to fill in the vacant spot to me for theme, fun and still challenging.

As with all pins...we all have our favorites...Munsters got some unjustified press here. (go figure)

#4576 14 days ago
Quoted from Who-Dey:

Had some pinball friends over last night and would you believe that out of my seven game collection that Munsters was the second most played game last night? IMDN Premium was the clear favorite but Munsters was right there behind it. I find it amazing that a game that is considered to be the worst coded game ever by some here on Pinside could be be so enjoyable to people that they wanted to play it for seven hours straight last nite! If i ever get a good game one day these guys may never want to leave my house when they come over.

Looking over the "hate" comments, it is a lot of the same people that feel the need to constantly slam this pin. I'm coming to a conclusion that they may hate that some actually like/love it, they can't fathom that people don't feel the way they do, and feel the need to convince us that we must be wrong. Making a personal comment that you don't like a particular machine is understandable...just do it, let it go at that. You ain't going to change people's minds by taking every opportunity to say it again and again...it just looses value in being ..yeah, we know "you" don't like it, and we bypass your comments, or even ignore you.
We all here, know who they are

I also have had the same experience with people coming over and really enjoying this pin.

Loving the game...and I have let go some of the so-called best.

#4587 14 days ago
Quoted from jfh:

No more so than those who feel the need to pump it all the time.

Well, this a club for current owners ( I thought that is what it meant to be in it)..so, not surprising that we may really like our machines and "are" pumped

#4603 13 days ago
Quoted from Who-Dey:

I think you are reading way too much into this jfh. I dint think any of us care to the point we are mad or anything like that. We just think its a shame that a few of individuals felt they had the need to actually start a Munsters bash thread and act like it is their job in life to give this game a bad rap and possibly hurt the sales of the game. Everybody is not going to like this game or any other game, and that doesnt offend me in the least. They just need to say what they want to say and shut up about it. Theres no need to keep bitching for what, four months now is it?

Good example of this on the MBr owners thread on how the hate thread can effect a potential purchase. They did what they intended.

Quoted from BeeGeeMtl:

I'm considering purchasing the MB (limited) but maybe I can save a few bucks and just get the SE? It's odd that they would price them so close, the main aspects that I like more in the LIMITED is obviously the Topper (can be purchased on its own?) and the plasma disk. The rest of the differences aren't important to me.
I also quite like the MUNSTERS (B&W) but most everyone seems to think that game sucks at this point, so I assume MB would also have longer shelf life and resell value.
All opinions welcome!
