Quoted from wtatumjr:

Congrats on your new Aerosmith. It's a game that the more you play the more you like. Try each song at factory settings (50 seconds I think) but reduce the "easier" songs to 40 seconds or so makes it easier to reach final tour. AS is my favorite so far( but my quest is not over.)

Agree with this 100%, makes the game far more exciting in my opinion. I think the songs to change are Rats in the Cellar, Same old song and dance, and back in the saddle. You can try it and see which way that you like it the best. You can always change it back to the default if you want to make the game harder.

Quoted from Peanuts:

The final production run was shipped with a signed flyer : https://www.facebook.com/sternpinball/posts/10156885873779244

I was hoping one of those would come with my AS earlier this year. But it was not to be.

#2553 51 days ago

I just noticed an issue with my AS pro. The Smart button stopped lighting up, only when its in attract mode. You know, when you are not playing and the pop bumpers change colors along with the arrow inserts, the SMART button changes with it. My SMART button just says off. I currently have "Start game with SMART Button" OFF. So I turned it on, and it blinks green only with the start button. It will blink green to cancel the toy box mulitball, it will blink yellow once you launch a ball after a ball is locked in the toy box. But once you drain the ball and next ball is ready for launch, it doesnt come on. Any thoughts what it might be? Maybe the LED light itself or that little board its on? Thanks for any help.

#2554 51 days ago

You need to do a Skill Shot for smart button to light up and stay on. If you use Smart Button to advance mode (get flower petals) it remains unlit until you do another "skill shot".

Smart Missiles:

Added in the 1.06 code update, Smart Missiles function similarly to the Hadron Enforcer from Guardians of the Galaxy. Pressing the action button when lit will immediately score the lit shot farthest to the left of the playfield during a song mode or a Multiball mode. These are collected by completing Skill Shots or as a random Aerosmith Mystery award.

To get to wizard mode do all the songs need to be solid or can then be blinking? Sometimes they stay a solids color when picking a song

I talked with Chaz today at Stern. Seems like the mulit color LED went out. I ordered and new LED board from Marco. That should be the fix.

Yes just get them all flashing and you can get Medley Multiball. During that you have a chance to complete the songs to get Final Tour WM.

Is there any decals to put over the magnet? Similar to the sewer on BM66

Neat looking but $4.99 shipping for a flat decal??

Don't know, never bought one. Just remember getting the link sent to me

A friend of mine had one of these on his game and in my opinion, it just stuck out like a sore thumb. The artwork doesn’t really fit with Dirty Donnys art. I felt its kinda like putting a bumper sticker on a Ferrari. I cut out a round piece of mylar and put over mine.

My pro vault is shooting the ball SDTM from the elevator scoop. I adjusted the power already. Any suggestions?

Yes, I tried google before asking here.

Try reducing the power to almost nothing then gradually increase

#2572 14 days ago

Adjust with the glass off and manually insert the ball in the scoop 10 times or so. Then make needed changes.

You could also try putting a piece of ball dead drop foam inside the scoop like i did here on my GB scoop. I actually had to put one in my AS scoop to stop it from shooting SDTM also. I installed it in the opposite side of my AS scoop than i did my GB scoop. You can buy ball dead drop foam at www.pinbits.com

Aerosmith has a Pro Vault ?, now I didn't know that. Does it have Dream On or the Same Old Song and Dance. I had my best game the other day. This game still "Rocks".

#2575 14 days ago

No vault. Aerosmith was in production for 3 years and just ended. There are still NIB in distributors.

I'm late to the party but the AS pin is really a lot of fun. The more I play it the more I like it.

Yeah there was definitely no vault for AS and im sure that there never will be because theres just not enough interest in the game. Thats ok though because this game is fantastic and its one of the best kept secrets in pinball. People who wont even give this game a chance are really missing out on a great pin.

No kidding! I was shocked how much I liked it when I got mine. It was going to be a fairly short turn around for me. Learn the game, and then push it out the door at the same price I bought it for. But now it will be here for a while. And even more strange, I have it set up pretty easy. Not stupid easy, but you can have good games on it regularly. I find it relaxing and very enjoyable to play. If I could only keep 5 games, AS would still be one of them. I like it that much.

Yep i agree 100%. I bought it as a filler game just to temporary fill a vacant spot in my lineup. Im not a fan of the band...they are ok but i can take them or leave them, but the game is fun. When i first got the game i liked it but just felt that it was "just ok." The more i played it, it started getting addicting to me and i loved it. I actually have beat the game and it was a blast.

Its the only game that i own that i have beat. I have since cut some time off of a few songs to make it like the old original code was, i enjoy the game more like that. Just like you said, its a very relaxing game. Im not going to say its bolted to the floor because im going to have to sell something to fund Elvira 3 if its good but if i had to keep it forever i would be perfectly ok with that also.

#2582 12 days ago

I think it's a better game if you cut some time off the "easier" songs and make sure you can right flipper the right ramp. AS didn't wow me at first - I thought it was pretty good but like others this game grows on you. I really like the clean open field lay out - GB ticks me off just a bit because it's hard to see the PKE lanes. But somehow, GB and AS really complement each other well - Sometimes I like a lot of stuff going on and sometimes I like the simplicity of AS.

I'm eventually going to be in the market for an Aerosmith either Premium or LE only. However, I'm wondering the difference between the 2 and am having some difficulty finding this info on Stern website since they are no longer making them. My main concern is the backglass.... is the LE an actual backglass vs. translate that is in the Premium?

Backglass, different cab art, powder coated rails, signed upper playfield, le plaque, and maybe a couple other things I'm forgetting

Hello, is it possible to lower the power of the drummers? all the world of powerful drummers?

#2588 6 days ago

?

I'm as confused as a chameleon in a bag of skittles on that question

#2591 5 days ago

Sorry, I'm French and I'm using Google translation. I would like to know if it is possible to reduce the power of the pinball coils (left and right). Because the shots are very strong.

#2592 5 days ago

Yes, in the settings you have the ability to adjust the coil strength.

#2593 2 days ago

I can't find the info I'm looking for, can someone tell me what the symbols represent?
The music note represents hitting the pops and I know you get coins for making shots, but what about the number next to the swiss cheese looking symbol?

That is the counter for your spinner. Every 25 spins your spinner value goes up. It starts out on 25 and goes down and starts over every 25 spins.
