Quoted from Eskaybee:

I forget; did DP come out before or after IMDN? And does the pro come with service rails?

After.

Service rails included:

That said, the pro is a clunky shooter IMO. The Prem/LE is worth the upgrade.

Quoted from scottslash:

Just want y'all to know I and Rob with Lermods have been talking and working on solutions for the disco ball. He's been very responsive and great to work with!

Scott is awesome. Let me know what you guys work out. I've noticed the noise, but it doesn't really bug me too much. The un-premium/LE behavior seems like a tough nut to crack. One thought I had was to add some sort of delay, say 2 seconds, to prevent the ball from coming on when the disco mode flasher is not solid. If that's possible from a technical standpoint, the behavior would be almost identical to the Premium/LE machines.

In any event, I still think it's a great mod and have zero regrets.

Has anybody done powder coated armor on their premium yet? Trying to figure out what color would look good.

What are you charging for the full armor and 4 legs? Do you strip the stern powder coating, or start from naked, uncoated parts?

#2207 3 years ago

Does anyone want to sell/get rid of the vinyl album?
I'm trying to complete my DP tribute in my house as its my top earning pinball haha.

#2208 3 years ago

Made the Mr. Sinister wizard mode today. Every shot is lit. Had Big Boom ready going into it. Knowing Big Boom credits lit shots except Hell House scoop and super jackpots, I was excited bringing it into Sinister only to hit the button and nothing! I know better for next time.

Sad face!

anyone know if cliffy does a scoop for DP? mine is deformed and its causing lots of rejects.

i bet he does , send him a Pm here on pinside Cliffy or here [email protected]

Thought Stern started adding scoop protection in the new games
Munsters has a scoop protection

Stern does - they have their ripoff version of a Cliffy they've been using since Ghostbusters that's crappier. That's what he's talking about, I think. The Stern ripoff one on his deadpool is deformed and he wants to put a real Cliffy on it.

#2213 3 years ago

Yeah the stern ones are pretty crappy, but that scoop takes a lot of abuse. Any guard is going to get bent up.

Thanks for the pics. Not crazy about the red on the premium.

#2215 3 years ago

Hey there,

Having an issue with my lil Deadpool drop targets!! The center drop target switch doesn’t seem to work everytime and some games when I hit start all 3 drop targets are all down right off the bat!! They also all go up and down randomly and in between games and counts random points up if I haven’t even plunged the ball
Wondering if anyone’s got some adjustments tips?!

Thanks

Sounds like your drop target shelf plastic broke or the spring isn't strong enough. It used to be pretty durable, but is now a flimsy paper-thin piece of plastic that breaks pretty frequently on Sterns of the last 8 years or so because they've cost-reduced it for little apparent gain.

Here's where the ledge is located on the assembly (you'll need to drop from under the PF):

Quoted from scottslash:

I wish I had a good experience with Lermods as you did, but mine was the exact opposite. The first DISCO BALL mod they created (a couple of months ago) shorted out my DEADPOOL PRO Disco insert light and when Rob reached out via Pinside, he didn't seem to believe me and ultimately said to reach out to Stern for a new node board. He also said "The mod itself did not cause the issue." Since I had purchased it via MEZEL MODS, I contacted them as well and they were AMAZING in regards to their customer service. They acknowledged that the mod has caused the issue, said they would refund me completely AND pay for any labor to fix the insert light. Classy folk! Sorry Lermods, can't say the same for you. Blaming the customer or his machine isn't a great way to handle these sorts of situations. My experience with them was not a good one.

#2218 3 years ago

Got art blades from Tilt Graphics installed today. Very easy install and they look really good on this machine IMO. I usually do mirror blades in most of my games, but I thought I would try something different on this one. I like it.

Has DP had very many mechanical issues? Seems like IM had quite a few. I am joining the club just trying to decide between pro or premium.

#2220 3 years ago
Quoted from stevebighead:

Premium, for sure. It shoots better than the pro. The only issues I've really heard about is with li'l deadpool's head breaking off and two people (now maybe three) with the drop target shelf breaking so the drop targets won't stay up.

#2221 3 years ago

New balls in my dp on route, feels like a new machine again haha.

I'm easily finding protectors for the *left* side of the shooter lane. But what about the *right* side of the shooter lane?

You know, for alongside the groove. The wooden siderail is already covered fine.

Found it interesting there is a metal protector on a metal rail

Probably to keep the powdercoating from chipping.

Mylar works great.

#2229 3 years ago

I just picked up an HUO Deadpool pro. I like to start off with all factory settings. Anybody know where out lane posts were placed from factory? My right post is wide open. My left post is in the middle.

#2231 3 years ago

This is my first Spike. Is it normal the fan is so loud?!? Sound meter says 40dB avg in the quiet room, but when the fan kicks on, it's avg 57dB. Just live with it? Or is mine louder than it should be?

#2232 3 years ago
Quoted from chuckwurt:

I've heard that. Yet, I went with the new protectors from Cliffy. Thanks for the tip PinMonk. I didn't/hadn't seen his "what's new" page.

vireland makes a plug and play replacement fan.

Wide open from the factory.

The terrible spike fans are 34.6dB. Lazy is the only reason Stern still has them in their pins, Meanwell would TOTALLY put in quieter fans in their power supplies just for Stern's order if they were asked given Stern's volume. Anyway, as mentioned, I have a plug and play replacement, and that thread also calls out part numbers of you want to make your own. Less than 13dB when you're done. Worth the effort.

#2237 3 years ago

Ordered! Thanks!

#2238 3 years ago

Has someone made any nice apron cards for this game?

#2239 3 years ago

I did. But they're movie based.
Some don't like that.
There is a thread.

Hey All - what's the best resources available to get my 14-yo son up to speed on Deadpool rules?

For example with Iron Maiden, Stern produced the "Backstage Pass" rulesheet PDF. That worked great. Stern also produced a similar rule sheet for Munsters. But not for Deadpool.

I know there are also some Deadflip and Buffalo video tutorials but they are from early code.

There's also the Tilt Forums Wiki but it's a bit too overwhelming for my son.

Suggestions?

Thanks!

#2241 3 years ago

http://tiltforums.com/t/deadpool-rulesheet/4311

I know you mentioned this resource, but the first post here is kept up to date for the most part and is fairly short. I think it's current through patch 0.97, but the basic rules are all there and it's a fairly short read.

#2242 3 years ago

They played DP on the Stern Pro Circuit. Video was on Deadflip's Twitch channel. They are playing in a tournament so strategy is different from a home setting, but the commentators do a great job of describing what the players are doing.

#2243 3 years ago

Dead Pool LE #37 NIB arrived yesterday. Would appreciate some feedback from the group. Have you guys found a best pitch angle for this game? Are there any tweaks that most have needed to dial in their NIB games (i.e. making Katana shot more consistent, etc.) ??

How do you get the vinyl album?

Would appreciate any feedback you guys have.

Thanks!

Congrats! It's a great/fun game. As far as pitch, most people seem to like between 6.8 and 7.0 degrees. I also try to periodically clean and wax my playfield, which seems to help (I always seem to get a great score after I do that). As far as the album, there should be a card with the stuff you received with the game that you complete and mail in to Stern. You should also update your code. The game is up to .99 now, with another update planned for this month.

What are you guys getting for prices on premium and LE?

#2247 3 years ago

Deadpool Prem poised to hit top 5 on pinside rankings next week. Its kind of wrong that earlier rankings of Pro and LE were based on very early code.

Quoted from Morhaus:

Stern's fault for releasing them that way, they got the rating they deserved. If they want to fix that, they need to stop this bare-bones code at release nonsense.

That said, Deadpool Premium/LE is now in my "recommend" column. Coming along nicely.

#2249 3 years ago
Quoted from Gov:

If anybody has an extra pro translite for sale at a reasonable price, let me know. I prefer it to the premium translite.

I was just catching up on the thread...I have to agree. I called JJ at Game Exchange...they quoted 80.00 bucks. I may order one......

Thanks for the info Steve. That $80 shipped?
