Quoted from epthegeek:

This thread needs some key posts. Here, I'll do my best:
Some, but not all of the current game junk as of Today:
SKILLSHOT:
- Regular skill shot is the "Noob Noob" target between the Inner Loop and the Garage.
- Super skill shot is the garage.
- Hitting the Inner Loop will multiply the skill shot up to 9x
SLAM SAVE:
- There's an insert by the pop bumper pointing to the drain. If that's on, you have a slam save.
- If the ball hits the pop and then drains immediately, the slam save returns your ball.
- To re-light the slam save, you have to complete the "S-L-A-M" in/out lanes.
MEESEEKS:
- Added by hitting the Meeseeks box target on the right just below the upper flipper.
- You can also get a Meeseeks as a Mystery award.
- Up to 3 Meeseeks at a time can be on the PF in normal play.
- Having a Meeseeks on a shot, BEFORE it goes bad, will multiply the value of whatever that shot gives you
- Having a Meeseeks on a shot, AFTER it goes bad, will divide the shot
- Those multiplier values are indicated by color on the "2x 3x 4x" lights in the middle. Blue = Multiply / Purple (bad) = Divide
- More Meeseeks = More multiplier, so 3 active Meeseeks is how you get the 4x
- Meeseeks do not go away until collected, but reset when the ball drains.
- There is a vanity high score for most Meeseeks used.
- More fun Meeseeks stuff coming soon.
DIMENSIONS:
- You have to charge up the portal gun (vertical stack of inserts in the middle of the PF) to open the portal.
- Any "loopy" shot will add a bit of charge (ramps, orbits), but the spinner adds the most.
- A combo shot from the inner orbit to the garage is always an instant portal.
- Once the portal is open, you have to get to the garage to change dimensions.
- For the first several, you can get there from the right orbit as well as the garage shot.
- When you change dimensions, overall things about the game change and Megaseeds are lit to collect.
- There are all different kinds of dimensions, some are silly, some are cool, some add scoring, some disable game features. Endless possibilities.
- The Megaseeds are what you really want in the other dimensions. Every seed you collect is 5% of your total ball score in bonus, and they last the whole game.
- The portal gun will slowly drain while you are in another dimension - making shots/spinners can fill it back up.
- If you fill it completely (or collect all the Megaseeds) you can jump to another dimension without going back to C-137 first.
- If you jump dimensions, that new dimension will have 4 seeds instead of 3
- Remember to look for orange flashing lights, those are your seeds.
- The last 2 digits of the player score shows you how many Megaseeds you have at all times
- There is also an instant-info page about what your current bonus value is
- There is a vanity award for both "Most Dimensions" and "Most Megaseeds"
GROMFLOMITE BATTLE:
- Locks are lit with the "flooble crank" (remote captive ball between the Right ramp and Rick's ship)
- Lock 2 balls and the scoop lights to start multiball.
- During the Battle, all shots light for jackpots.
- Collecting jackpots is how you light the Super - first super takes 1 jackpot, 2nd takes 2 and so on.
- The Super Jackpot value is a base value PLUS any collected jackpots, so getting more before you collect the super is valuable.
- The Super Jackpot is in the garage. For the first one you can get it from the right orbit, after that it's garage shot only.
- If you hit the inner loop (where the spinner is) before you hit the super, you can multiply the value.
- There is an add-a-ball on the flooble crank during the battle.

Super struggling to decide on powder coated coin door or not. I really like the look, wifey thinks the black looks better and matches the black of the cabinet flows in better.

Purple is the correct answer. Trust me.

I can't have ragrets, If I don't go Kalaxian Crystan Color Matched Coin Door, i'll be kicking myself big time.

For a couple different reasons. If anyone in the 250-275 or so range has a hard on for a low # mid 80’s and wants to make it totally worth my while to wait, send a PM

#509 1 year ago
Quoted from RC_like_the_cola:

Had a couple questions regarding standards, for whenever the Spooky crew sees this.
1. Will a standard come with a Spooky Fang Club Standard Edition #xxx badge like the BSEs have? (You had to be a Fang Club member to buy either, so just wondering)
2. If I don't choose the speaker lights, does the standard still get the black portal grill cover thingies? Or is that part of the speaker light upgrade kit?

BSE gets the portal speaker cover
The RGB lights are a purchaser add-on separate.

Oh, yeah. But I am in Montana. Not a lot of venues for pinball.

Drive to Regina!

I took purple.
I did not want to regret it

#664 1 year ago
Quoted from pinheadpierre:

So....the "family" adjustment is only for the callouts, right? No video censoring? I expected lots of blood and guts, but the repeated stabbing thing in purge mode might not fly with my wife/kids.

Cartoon stabbing cant be even close to what these kids see these days that we're not aware of, unless they are quite young. I'm not worried about my teens, i'm sure i'm naive about that they know/seen.

#752 1 year ago

Nice stuff!!!!

#850 1 year ago
Quoted from Zablon:

Has anyone ever done a timed multiball mode where after the time runs out flippers die, balls all drain, then shoots 1 ball back into play (not a ball loss, just basically that mode is over)? Seems like this idea would be a candidate for something like that.
I know that Space Station has it's 'extra ball' mode that does this, but it's at the end of the game.

Monopoly land grab also?

#945 1 year ago
Quoted from goingincirclez:

Since you have self-appointed the role of ambassador, I think it's reasonable for you to demonstrate the simple quick fixes if they are indeed that simple. Don't dismiss folks who are new to this. Just take a quick tour at the start, less than 5 minutes and no fancy camerawork, just to point out "here on the pf is the adjustment you can make for the plunge shot. Over here is the other adjustment for X. If your ball gets hung in this spot a lot, adjust this part. If your spinner seems sticky, check this alignment and then play better. Check out the service menu for other settings, we recommend XYZ".
We shouldn't need a "early" game number pass to get this secret info; lots of folks talking about it and Spooky can differentiate themselves further ahead of Stern by acknowledging the concerns and sharing the info, and you would probably earn some personal goodwill too. Win-Win.

Whatever happened to asking nicely, being polite, and showing appreciation?

#955 1 year ago
Quoted from Concretehardt:

My Mini R&M review:
Disclaimer, I’m not good at writing reviews.
I received my game yesterday. I wanted to say that I am a little embarrassed to admit that i post here quite a bit and think about pinball all the time, but have played less than 50 games of pinball in the last 2 years because of my health issues. Having had a brain tumor near my motor cortex in 2018 and surgery to remove it and now dealing with the tumor that has re grown, radiation treatment, seizures ect it has taken a lot of joy out of playing pinball for me. All that said I played more pinball yesterday after I got R&M set up than i have played in the entire year before I got it.
I spent all day setting my game up yesterday as my mental focus is not what it used to be, so I wanted to be extra careful. First off I will say that the game is Stunningly beautiful in person, I was blown away when I opened the box and saw it.
The shots:
I was worried as heard people talking about the difficulty of some of the shots On this game. This is potentially a big problem for me as not being able to hit shots consistently is one of my biggest frustrations when I play pinball.
I start my first game and immediately loop the ball twice as it comes around the upper flipper (I was like wow did I just do that) then I proceeded to hit the left and right ramps easily, the only shot that I fount difficult was the garage shot from the upper flipper, I was able to make it, but it is a tough shot! My understanding is that it was designed that way. There is something about the layout/geometry of the shots on this game that feels very well laid out to me. The shots are challenging but make able and there are tons of different shots to make. A+ on the playfield layout, again you can tell when you play this game how much thought went into the shot layout.
The light show:
What can I say, it is mind blowing! No exaggeration it is the best light show hands down I have ever seen on a game! (I have owned DI & WOZ ect) I was totally blow away by it, so much so that I sat and watched the game in attract mode for a half hour last night.
The artwork:
I love it, so much detail! The cabinet back box and back glass are beautiful and perfectly fit the theme and art for R&M. The playfield art is so cool I kept finding new Details on it. The purple armor
And coin door look amazing, there is a sparkle in the purple, pictures can not do it Justice!
Toys:
The game may look a little sparse compared to a game like dialed in when it comes to toys, but let me tell you, when you are Playing it you don’t think that all all! The game has so many shots and cool features.. like the slam ring (way cooler than I thought it would be!), Danesi lock, immortality field, portal shot to the garage with subway that kicks out to left out lane, Ricks ship etc.
Sound:
This brings the whole game together the sound is amazing it’s like TNA on steroids! The sound and callouts are absolutely incredible. I want to say that the Factory sound system on this game is the best I’ve heard on any game ever, but since I had a powered Polk subwoofer just sitting there I went ahead and hooked it up and it is intense!
The code:
I love the fact that I am playing as Morty! I have to say that for being early code it is already very good with lots to see and do! I can’t imagine how great it will be by the end of the year! Video clips are awesome, custom call outs are great, modes are fun and objectives are well thought out! (profanity set at 95%) I love the direction this code is going in!
Issues with my game.. there were not many:
The left flipper gap was A bit too much so I used my gap gauge and adjusted it. The shooter lane sometimes hits the end of the shooter ramp and bounces back to the auto plunge, this can be an issue if you are in multi ball and the first ball fails to launch and a 2nd ball ejects into the shooter lane as the plunger doesnt have the power to launch both balls at once, I will try Hilton’s fix on this today. One of the legs was making slight contact with the cabinet which could of damaged the decal, the game comes with the good metal cabinet protectors but the way the leg was formed created a slight clearance problem on only one of the legs (I have had this issue on Stern and JJP games as well) I swapped the leg to the back of the game and all was good. On a side note When I set up a game I bolt the legs on and then slide a piece of paper between the cabinet and the leg to make sure there is no contact.
So really very few issues so far.
Updating Code was a breeze!
This game/theme bridges generations! My daughter is 18 and her and her friends know I just got this game, most of them don’t play pinball, but because it’s Rick and Morty they want to know when they can come over and play it. (I guess pinball nerd Dad is cool after all)

This game will never leave my house until the day I die and then my daughter will enjoy it for many years.
Great job team Spooky you guys knocked it out of the park with this game!!!

#1298 1 year ago
Quoted from Concretehardt:

Ooh Wee! I just got some kind of super duper skill shot.. I squanched the ball and hit 2 loop shots in a row and then nailed the garage when it came around the 3rd time.. I got 1.2 million points for doing it and a really cool call out that I can’t remember.[quoted image]

Sounds mighty close to the Three way combo on Whirlwind!

Quoted from docquest:

Since you cant read the text on the shot from the players position I thought this might help indicate it's the Noob Noob shot.
It's a funko key ring that I painted his eyes the proper white and added the squggily pupils. He's held in place by a wire running under the ramp protector screw to a hole in his head.

If it (the hole from the rail) gets to a new location that doesn’t interfere with old hole in wood, drill a small pilot hole in PF, and put a screw in, whoop Dee doo

Quoted from jonesjb:

I didn’t think his comment was snide.

I totally did

#1799 1 year ago
Quoted from TheNoTrashCougar:

Hey Guys,
Yeah, so this rail adjustment thing is my fault. I put too many tabs on that guide rail which made it very stiff and actually bounced the ball off sometimes. Removing those 2 screws allows the rail to have a bit of flex to it and not bounce the ball off of it and cause it to rattle. I guess it could be worse. Spooky is making the adjustments, but all it really comes down to is removing those 2 screws. You do not need to drill holes or anything crazy. If yours is playing fine, then just leave it as it. Hope that clarifies a bit. I am still learning every single day on the best practices of pinball design.
Thank you,
--Scott

My day project. I installed lighted flipper buttons on R&M. They pulse green. Don’t worry, I didn’t void my warranty for these. I also installed a secondary mean well power supply to run any lighted mods I will be installing.[quoted image]

Those flipper lights match up fantastic. Great addition

Same thoughts here, doesn’t “match” the aesthetic of the pin IMO

#2585 1 year ago
Quoted from jhoward1082:

For people interested, I just got Brian Allen’s alt R&M backglass and I think it looks amazing. The art style is definitely more “stylized” but I think that makes it pop so much more. It’s all personal preference but I’m a big fan.

Well son of a bitch....
Spent this afternoon setting up the R&M that I purchased from CP Pinball. All leveled, cleaned and waxed.
I went ahead and performed some of the tweaks detailed in this thread before even turning her on. I haven't even played a game yet; gotta get in the proper mind set.
Oh yeah, I found this lock sitting in the coin box. Pretty funny if you followed the ACNC thread...

#2682 1 year ago
Quoted from kklank:

So are The Orange Mega Seeds just how you collect and increase your bonus after each ball?
If so, then how do you increase your bonus multiplier?

I don’t believe you increase it.
Every mega seed is 5% if your score if I’m right and just adds up as you get more.

IE- 21 mega seeds would be 105% added bonus?

Since Karl didn't show it on the stream last night, and I talked about it on Poormans with Drew & Ian - this is the updated switch test interface (I posted this on the poorman thread over a day ago and nobody noticed [quoted image]

That’s awesome, Abbas even more awesome for the person that’s new to pinball. Wow!

#2846 1 year ago

I swear it takes more energy to complain and appear whiney. I don’t see the point to come
innnanf mention to everyone that your schedule doesn’t match the streamers schedule or vice versa.

Club thread, do your things like that in the other thread. Or not at all would be even more cooler.

#2848 1 year ago
Quoted from guitarded:

I didn't say shit about the schedule. I expressed disappointment that the Stream was not captured (and not broadcast in a way that allowed me to watch).
That's it. Spent some time looking for it, then came here to find out that it was not archived.
It took a lot less effort than ankle biting other commentors, that's for sure.

Ok, fair enough.
How come you can’t see the stream?
Device issues? Curious.

#3146 1 year ago

Hey all, never had a Spooky, multimorphic pin so have never heard the issue with power supply fan volume/problem or maybe it's not one at all for home environment.
Is it worth spending the $17 for a quieter fan for the power supply. Thx in advance.

Quoted from Borygard:

I've got pairs of Mr. Meeseeks, to mount near the Mr. Meeseeks Box available on my site now...
http://LockWhenLit.com/Products.htm
They're $20 for a pair. They are ornaments, mounted to a thin plastic washer, that easily mount to existing posts near the Meeseeks Box. Easily installed and removed with no modifications needed to the game.
For those that would like to make their own, the box of 12 Meeseeks are available from Amazon...

Quoted from f3honda4me:

I am guessing early 80s are the next to ship any day now. They’ll have that new spooky factory smell.

Can new pin smell and new factory smell come together to create a new smell that ever smelled that will never fade away?

#3198 1 year ago

OoooooooWeeeeeeeeeee!

#3330 1 year ago

I would probable just add one washer at a time until it takes the balls easily. (insert joke here)
Probably easier than rounding or filing the metal edge.

YUP! Just plunk down in a cozy lawn chair until they release the goods!!!

#3428 1 year ago

Adding a PF protector would be a bit of a nuisance for the builders as there would most likely be switch adjustments in there.
Prob best to let the customers/third party handle that.

Hoping they ad How Did I Get Here and the Eyehole Man

What’s about the fake doors ??

#3670 1 year ago
Quoted from TigerLaw:

Yep, the fact that the stickers and sleeves are the biggest issue with this game currently is a true testament to the dedication of Spooky and their commitment to quality. The internet can be a tough place filled with negativity, Spooky just doesn’t generate drama. They provide no troll food.

Yup!
So I have some spare post sleeves here at home and I grabbed a few from titan with a separate order. Whoop de shit, I need to replace an .85c part after a hundred or two games? Least of my worries

#3716 1 year ago

Well, got the pin Tuesday, but was able to only mess with it this evening as I’ve been at the lake.
Overall, I’m at a great and a bit pissed off mood about my pin so far.
Plays pretty great, I find the garage shot decent, I’m nothing sbort it awful to the spinner.

But as for the build, couple issues that I’m not happy with. A connector was off, really struggled to find the issue, and the pins the connector should have been on were full of glue so the connector would never have been on it for testing.
Once I toook my glass off, I couldn’t get it back on, the back of playfield glass trim is way off (too low) and I had to pry it up to get the glass to slide all the way up, after I was fuckin tired of messing with that, I went to take it off, the glass trim had 10 holes in it, the wood was split from the builder trying to get screws in and just kept trying over and over, that was rushed or missed in inspection as the one looking at it would have struggled mightily to get glass back on I’m sure.

Coin door installed sloppy I think also, as some cabinet decal bubbled up on top middle near bolt, I might be able to loosen and smooth out decal and re/tighten

Everything else pretty great. Gotta work on the glass rattling though, stuffed a couple small cut cable ties in between glass trim and rails to alleviate that. Prob 80% better for sure

Anyway, those are my first impressions.

Hmm.
I had to read this twice.

Not back glass trim, sorry.

Quoted from mpdpvdpin:

Hmmmm, maybe take some time and make a few adjustments and just be excited that you are one of only 750 people on THE PLANET to own this machine. If you have any serious troubles Spooky support is very responsive and always willing to help you resolve any and all problem.

I didn’t say they weren’t responsive, and really, you want to give me that and say how I should feel?
I am and have been excited. I love playing the pin and I can’t stop hitting Start.
If you dropped 13 G’s on a pin, you’d be justifyingly critical about quality. I’m not talking about playfield or parts quality, I’m talking about human putting parts together quality. I have never heard of anyone had issues like this out the first 100 that have said anything, so hopefully I am the only one that got the Friday afternoon employee trying to rip out for a beer pin that maybe rushed a bit. I have done the same thing at work myself.

#4041 1 year ago
Quoted from Pinball-Obsessed:

Wow!
I don’t think we need to rag on spooky pinball. They’ve been doing a great job of voluntarily fixing things and chiming in here on pinside when owners have issues.
The biggest difference between Spooky and other pinball manufacturers is while the other guys are cutting corners, using cheaper parts, producing overall lesser quality pins and raising their prices.... it seems like spooky is going out of their way to make improvements and produce a product that justifies what you pay for it. And, they listen to their buyers!
Not sure about you but that makes my buying decision a lot easier.
Just my opinion...

Yup, my pin issues don’t have me troubled as far as not still being a Spooky cheerleader. I have to fix things, (not tweak) that blows, but I’m a big boy and I’ll figure it out here.

#4053 1 year ago

Lol, I loosened the door and removed the top bolt. Tried to push cab decal back down flat but it bubbles back up today.
I’ll maybe try something else tonight or tomorrow

#4547 1 year ago

Hey all, found a little nugget I had to tweak fix, here’s what I did, hope this doesn’t happen to you, but might save some troubleshooting for you in case it does.

I had a coil firing intermittent but quick and repeatedly. I couldnt see it to see what could have been hitting, it was only the sound and nothing was moving g. so I lifted the PF and had to check while game was on, what it was was the leaf switch for the scoop to register a ball inside wasn’t getting enough travel upwards to show the switch was open. It was pressing in the bottom of the scoop metal and was staying closed. You’ll see right at the spot where my yellow stick is pointing. I had to bend the switch down a bit so it could travel up and release. Just an FYI for anyone that may stumble upon this.

This pic is aiming back up the scoop from below it.

#4550 1 year ago

Has anyone else had the same problem as much as me?!! I probably have the ball coming down the right ramp, sucking back like I hit a wedge into the green, and ripping right and down the outline? I’m probably getting it 30%+ of the time, and it’s really fucking up some nice balls.

I’d like a simple tune up. Do I just need to slow it down a bit? Remove some spin?

Quoted from jonesjb:

Agree, while I wouldn’t be disappointed in more, the existing:
...Layer of adventures
...Plus a layer of dimensions and mega seeds
...Plus a layer of Meeseeks
Create a nice balance of depth as well as approachability.
Add in another multiball, more dimensions/adventures and maybe a wizard mode and the pin is pretty much perfection. At this point I think additional dimensions and adventures would benefit the game more than additional complexity. But that’s just an opinion.

I seriously dont need another multiball. The groflomite multiball isn’t hard to achieve, I’ve also had meeseeks mania during groflomite and that was insane, stack that during another dimension and during an adventure, holy fuck.

#4671 1 year ago

I give a fuck if a YouTube video says the words wizard mode on it. The code is fantastic on this, but the gameplay is even better, I don’t need deeper or more at this point. I’m quite pleased already.

Quoted from Izzy24:

Every time it’s during Pickle Rick so far. I’ve played it twice and it’s happened twice. Had to restart both times.
Just some initial observations getting going...
The ball seems to hang up a little at the top of the inner loop for me. I have to check that out.
That garage shot from the upper flipper is hard, it’s flows nicely when I get it, no rattle, just it’s a hard shot, wonder if a small flipper adjustment might help a hint.
I have the pitch at 6.5 and plays well, is that low for the game? I couldn’t find a level anywhere on shooter lane or anywhere else on the game.
Other than that I’m super impressed! The quality feels great, the gameplay is really fun, it’s an awesome game!

Use the key posts in the thread for that inner loop tweak, just pinch the lane guides together a bit.

#5589 1 year ago
Quoted from jeffspinballpalace:

Game currently has 8 adventures, right?
Roy: A Life Well Lived
Total Rickall
Whirly Dirly
Look Who’s Purging Now
Pirates of the Pancreas
Pickle Rick
Get Schwifty
The Blood Dome
Each is unique, challenging and fun. Some I’ve beaten and others, not yet. There is also a lot of action created from locking balls, starting multiballs and visiting dimensions. Everything feels complete and imo, the topper is integral to the game aesthetic. The one area needing attention is the number of adventures offered, so the obvious question is how many are currently planned? I don’t want redundant or insignificant adventures added just to jack the numbers. From a gut feeling, I suggest 16 adventures would be pretty awesome, whilst 24 would be most excellent.
Eric or Bowen once indicated there were 12 adventures initially brainstormed. Surely 1-4 adventures might be created from Pinside ideas. So Bowen or (Eric, Luke, Charlie, David), now that you are approaching game build #200, how many modes are coming?

Personally I feel if they even get to 12 they have gone above and beyond for me.
Any pre tv screen game basically have 4-6 different “modes” and are quite repetitive.
I also don’t believe they’d ever take a mode from our ideas. These have probablybeen figured out long ago and in the works/donealready.

Garage shots hard, but works fine when you hit it. I adjusted the rail feeding the upper flipper, just dropped it as close to the flipper as the slots in the tabs allow, that's the only playfield adjustment I made. Left ramps a hard shot, just adjusted the flipper power up to 38 on the lower flippers and that took care of that.

Had some issues out of box - a cable came unplugged in the back box which was preventing the machine from booting all the way. One of my speaker LEDs does not work, the connector is burnt on the speaker side. The amp in the bottom of the machine was free floating (none of the 4 screws were present, or present in the cabinet). The balls it shipped with were pitted and one had a huge gouge in it, I promptly replaced them with silverjets.
I am also having some issues with the flippers dropping when hit with a hard impact from a ball. I have not had much time to troubleshoot that yet.
I called support for help locating the unplugged cable and Luke answered and was very helpful.

Quoted from TinyBlackDog:

#237 arrived today after an absolutely horrible experience w/ R&L Carriers. They “forgot” to put it on the truck on Thursday and Friday, and it finally showed up at 7am this morning (Saturday). I’ll never use them for shipping a pin in the future.
Handful of issues that I’m going to be working my way through - many of these have been reported by others.
- Right flipper button has issues. Top flipper engages first, followed by the bottom one, so I’m guessing the wires are backwards on the dual leafs. The bottom one also doesn’t engage reliably.
- Ridiculous levels of bass. I’ve dialed the sub volume just a hair over completely off (counter clockwise). Seems like it is way too sensitive to the tiniest adjustment. I will need some kind of anti rattle tape for sure.
- Shaker motor is also way too strong, so I’ll open it up and tweak the angle between the weights.
- Getting quite a few air balls on the right ramp. Does it need some kind of shield/protector there? Maybe flipper strength should be dialed down.
- Looks like I’m having the cab decal issue around the legs that others have reported recently. I’m going to either add an additional protector, or some washers/shims. This is more than a little annoying, and makes me not want to play it until I figure out a solution.
Glad to finally have my machine, but wish it were a bit more “ready to play” out of the box.

I believe there's three power settings for shaker, don't go changing weights until go through settings.
