SM is tops on my list and I like both the original and VE. On gameplay - does one tend to play a little tougher than the other? I have not played it a ton, but the VE seems to play a little more difficult. I could be wrong.

Wanted to get your opinions. You guys own a great game!

#467 3 years ago
Quoted from TimeBandit:

Owned original and currently own VE. Identical gameplay. I would suggest any observed differences may be down to setup/levelling etc. Doc Ock on VE has less rejects but still has some. Venom shot is just as f&$(!@#ing hard on both of them.

Ok. Yes I was counting some plays on the VE at Texas and ATl pinfests. Love pounding that Venom shot. You get a chance to say "Got it!" instead of having to flip again with say the wrap shot on my old ST and HS2, unless it is for a lock. Very satisfying.

Randomkg came over and helped my put in the color DMD for my SMVE last night. It looks amazing and it has to be at the top as one of the best ones out there. This is a must have and worth the extra money in my opinion. They did a great job!

Quoted from shacklersrevenge:

Back in to stay, love this game. So much value compared to the newer stuff. Masterpiece flow and code.

You should add the heated flipper button mod for your kid also. He looks a bit chilly.

We were on our way out, this is New England, I'll trade you for some of that Georgia sunshine

I am now in Maine, where I grew up, for X-mas, so I know.

Quoted from ATLpb:

I got rejected by perfect dead on forehand shots to the doc scoop three times last night (despite having dead stop foam back there), during a good game, for me. Enough was enough, so today I took George's best fix that he made for the vault and applied it to my BSM. He made the scoop way bigger in vault and also made like a cliff that the ball falls off of.
A little bit of black burn mark from the dremel is visible to the player, but barely. I can live with it. I mod a ton and try to beautify a ton, but the number one factor is always flawless playability and a machine behaving as the designer intended.
This job was not for the faint of heart.
In three test games I got rejected about 1/5th as much as before. I'll take it.
If wondering, game is level and set to 6.6 pitch.

Ballsy move, but you got to do what you got to do.

Oh and new SM movie is pretty darn good! IMHO.

Still loving my SM pin. Why did I wait 4 years to get one is beyond me?

Quoted from bigd1979:

Sm is now my favorite stern pin.... glad i gave it a,shot

My favorite Stern also. Just good, balanced pinball with so many feel good shots. Has some of the smoothest shots around.

Was definitely a "why did I not pick this up years earlier" pin.

Quoted from AJB4:

SM is coming back in!!! After trading it out - I was missing it too much and in a small collection games that get boring or no play get moved. So it's "Welcome Back, Spidey!". Glad to be back in the club and hopefully, will hold onto it for awhile this time.

I promise I am not following you.

Spider Man is awesome! Can't imagine it leaving me.

Also is a nine game collection really a small collection?

Maybe sold 500 VE’s?? But no idea.

Original is fantastic and a good deal compared to what else is out there and BSM is just bad ass!

I love my VE. On temp trade for MET now but looking forward to its return.

Quoted from Pinzap:

Joined the club yesterday... thanks asoa. A few things to tweak still, but my first question for the club... I there a modified rom out there for the VE that has the old SM callouts on it? I thought I read something about this... PM me if you have info.

Nice game! Like the topper. Looks like it has the color dmd which is one of the best IMHO. A solid add to your already nice collection.

Quoted from rollitover:

Interested in joining the club.
If anyone in Mn or the adjoining area be looking to sell please let me know.
Want a standard Spidey.
Not looking for anything heavily modded or vault.

Man. I think OSM is easily one of the best values in pinball right now. Hope you get one soon. GLWTH!

My VE was delivered on Monday and I got it set up late last night. HUO with around 100 plays and mirror blades.

Nice! Is that your first game?! Congrats on the pickup. Now go play the crap out of it! Now!

Quoted from GCS2000:

I'll just keep my eyes open and whatever pops up as a good deal I'll probably grab.
Would love one with a colordmd and big law mods. I think the back alley mods are amazing but cover up/block too much of the PF - just my opinion of course.

Right. With SM just buy the deal. They are both good. I had a choice between a VE at $5900 with invisaglass or a routed orginal for $4200 with a couple of mods and I went with the VE. The Back Alley mods are cool, but yes a little large. I would add a color DMD on either SM you choose.

Also SM would go great with your POTC JJP, Houdini, and MB. Fun lineup! I always think the coolest pinheads are the ones who like a little of everything.

I don't really bother with online "My way or the highway" opinion folks. You don't seem like you do either with your diverse collection. Good luck getting SM!

Quoted from PinRob:

A NECA 2003 limited addition statue for a topper. Simple and it fits my low ceilings [quoted image][quoted image]

So it is an “LA” and not an “LE”.

Hope you are enjoying it!

Nothing to add, except that I love SM. It’s a “shooter” for sure.

Quoted from PinRob:

Ditto, playing last night with my 6yr old son before bed. He gets to Battle Royal - Nice

Whoa. That’s awesome.

If he knew how to get jackpots with add a ball during BR that would have been extra impressive!

Quoted from ccbiggsoo7:

ive owned spiderman for 5-6 yrs. love the game, it'll never leave. played the vault version, absolutely hated it. Callouts were horrible.

Ha. I love SM and prefer the vault. Something for everyone in pinball and good to have so many choices.

Quoted from flipper73:

yesterday I installed a color dmd to my Spiderman Vault. Now I am not quite sure which style I should use. What do you guys prefer, which style is the best for the smve?

I did high res to fill in all the dots. SMVE is one of the better Color DMD's in opinion. They also did a great job on the Orig SM color DMD making all the movie scenes much much better.

And I love my SM. Keep going back to it, shooting and flowing my way through it for fun every time I play. Perfect pinball IMHO.
