Quoted from Tsskinne:

From what I can tell they matched it to the red in the word dracula on the playfield, but again I agree with you, its not for me, but figured maybe someone else would like it.

Are you going to own it long enough for it to matter?

Those wireforms are different but not bad. I prefer the standard chrome though.

Quoted from NPO:

So I'll vouch and say I have actually SEEN this be the case. Note this post from 2 years ago:
https://pinside.com/pinball/forum/topic/bram-stokers-dracula-clubmembers-only?tu=npo#post-1872865
My castle lock optos were reading out of order. If I recall correctly, they were triggering 2-1-3 instead of 1-2-3. I knew there was no way the wires just magically "swapped places" on the optos. I ordered the new board as I had heard great things about them, and sure enough, my optos triggered in the correct sequence at that point.
Seeing is believing, and that was all I needed to be sold.
Unfortunately, now the new board is faulty; however....
Think if I hadn't just installed this board and my mist ball circuit started acting up. I'd be installing a faulty unit into my game, and then I'd really be chasing my tail. No thanks.
So, at the end of the day, yes, I do buy boards to keep my games sound. I'd rather have it and not need it then need it and not have it.
YMMV.

So, I wanted to post a resolution to this situation.

To recap: Dec 2016, I purchased both opto boards for BSD. I'm a big believer in preventative maintenance, and when a 25 year old PCB burns out on me, I don't want to wait a month to get it from Australia. I want it now.

So I got both, and unfortunately, both of them were faulty boards.

Mike from Homepin got two new boards on their way to me with quick shipping from Australia. He wanted no money for them; he sent them right away. I have since received and installed them (probably about 1.5 weeks ago now), and I am pleased to say my game is 100% fully functional. Everything works, and I have thoroughly enjoyed my BSD playing probably no joke 50-100 games on it since installing the replacement boards Mike sent to me.

Buy Homepin's products with confidence. He did right with me, and I will always support and toot the horn of a good businessman like Mike.

Hey now! Haha okay, so maybe I go through a decent amount of games, but I can't help it, I want them all and I only have a small house. Dracula is literally just sitting in the middle of my living room between the couch and tv at the moment, and I'm putting a game on location again just to make some room for it.

If i end up with this pin, I have some options for powder coating.

For the armor, either Red or black. Both look good IMO. Any other pros/cons for each?

I am having a tough time picking wireform colors if any. Possibly a teal/light blue flecked with white or some other colour to match some of the playfield. Also maybe different colors for each one

Any thoughts?

If I do mine, it'll be black armor and black wireforms

#4356 9 days ago

so tough to decide I love the wireforms on @thetoyphantom 's pin. What's the colour pallet. Blood red and black "flake"?

How does yours play?

Mine has been pretty solid. If I can quit being so lazy and get the thing cleaned up, I might try to take it to LAX. I'm sure some will want to see the colorDMD in mine.

Well since mine doesn't play currently I will go with not well haha, but it was bought knowing that. I posted a thread yesterday about a few of the issues and got some good advice on how to fix her up. Also it appears that the wireforms and red armor are claimed.

This is my favorite pin of all time, I wish the dracula coffin either opened when fighting dracula or the coffin raised. I guess making a mechanical thing like that might be too deep of a mod. Sure would be nice if that toy was more active.

Music is fading in and out and some sounds are extra loud. Tried reseating ribbon cables and IC chips on the sound card to no avail. Could this be a voltage issue?

#4361 4 days ago

i have the some things are louder than others "issue". had the same on my HS2. i think i'm on volume 11. if i go up to 12, it evens it out (everything loud). i always figured it was pre-DCS crappy sound programming.

#4362 4 days ago

certain sounds will gain volume by design. the pop bumper sfx for instance, gets really loud when in one or multiple MB modes.

This is true, and quite surprising the first time you notice it happening as it gets very loud. There is also an option to turn the multiball volume spike off, which I eventually did

#4364 4 days ago

Ahhh, so that's going to be unrelated to the music fading in and out or dropping out completely. That's good to know

For me it was way to big to not do anything. Personally, I would prefer the coffin as the physical lock and the castle as the virtual lock. Either way we're nitpicking about a great machine.

Yeah Dracula also gets loud sometimes too. I think ball save dialogue is one.

I'm getting started in streaming, and put some games on my BSD last night: https://www.twitch.tv/videos/124273172

Any feedback appreciated - other than I suck at Pinball - I already know that
