Quoted from cooked71:

What’s “LilDP bounce”?

It's the third Li'l DP mode.

First is Li'l DP MB...shoot Li'l DP standup enough times to light the basic shots. Shoot a couple (not sure how many) of shots and Li'l DP lights green. Lock ball in Li'l DP and continue playing Mb with a ball safely locked away for a short time. I think the super is on the Dazzler shot.

Second is Li'l DP Frenzy...no MB, just a boost to all switches for a timed period.

Third is Li'l DP Bounce...again no MB. The drop targets, or standups on Pro, will move/light in order (like the Megaladon shot). Hitting them when they are lit gives big points. It's tough to get far in this, but finishing it can net about 100M.

#4352 1 year ago

Finishing lil DP bounce also rewards a 2x base multiplier for the remainder of the ball. Cool mini mode with a nice reward. Best to stack it with Juggernaut (2).

#4353 1 year ago
Quoted from vireland:

It's WAY less random than the SIM shot. The tolerance is very tight for when to make the shot, but with practice you can do it more and more. The part that pisses me off most is having it go airborne instead and ending up on the plastic next to the ramp, then rolling off instead of going up the ramp. That happens too much and is super irritating.

Fair enough - will need to give it some practice. SIM shot on DI sucks - main reason I sold the game - but I guess if the theme is solid (like DP) you can overlook some "faults".

#4354 1 year ago

I hit the shot more often when the ball has rolled up the left flipper guide and back down for the shot. Maybe that is a mental thing but it seems slower is better for me.

#4355 1 year ago

It's thrice to the back of the lil dp area to start the multi. You don't need to knock all the targets down, you can sneak in a gap. Hit the back target and it starts flashing green, hit it again for solid green and once more to lock.

Greetings gents!! Took delivery of a new Pro today. I have a question. I want to completely outfit this thing with protectors but I only see that Cliffy has them for the shooter lane, drain, and lane switches. Is any one else manufacturing a full blown set to protect everything possible for this game?

Also, whats the deal with this post, and why is it in the position that it is without being flush with the top of the washer?

Righty Tighty! Always good to scan a NIB Pin for situations like this.

#4360 1 year ago

Keith spoilt us on Maiden with the extensive high score tables.

Wondering what the essential ones are for this game?

Hopefully next update

Cliff also makes that post protector for the right loop doesnt he?

#4362 1 year ago

Every single area that would be subjected to wear. The ball eject/shooter lane, switch slots, and the drain under the apron

The post is already tight in it's entirety. Should it, or should it not be in the orientation that it is?

Quoted from Mahoyvan:

I browsed both of his sites in their entirety and only see mention of the shooter eject and outhole drain protector being done, so I can only assume that more are on the way whatever they may be.

And i think you have to email him for that post protector as it’s not listed.

#4366 1 year ago
Quoted from Rengozu:

Only bad thing about my experience was it being at a loud local bar, which kinda kills getting the full comedic Deadpool vibe when you can't hear any of the music or callouts.

This is the main reason I seek to own pins. Playing in the wild does kind of suck for several reasons. You can almost never hear the machine or it is not 100% working or it's not dialed in properly etc. Some modern games have rule sets that are too deep to grasp in the wild as well. I also like to mod my games. Not going to get that in the wild either.

#4367 1 year ago
Quoted from sohchx:

That's what Cliff offers. That's why I'm confused. If you want to cover ALL the switch slots, his are generic and will work for all of them, but that's pretty unnecessary. They're only there for the rollovers on the return lanes to protect the slots from ball drops chewing them up.

He has a protector for the right lane guide at the entrance to the katana loop also.

Just wondering if you think DP will get another code update... It seems pretty complete and Stern now has new games that need polish. Updates are always welcome, but I don't see them as thinking DP needs anything.

Deadpool needs some polish. There are still not a small amount of bugs/weirdness issues. The "1" kerning problem really bugs me, too. There'll be another update. Tanio was busy helping on Ghostbusters for a while, and probably is on his next game, too. Patience.

And need those high score tables.

I never really cared for these until the other night when I started off with ninja apocalypses and ended up with 80+ towards the end of the game.

So stoked on that alone!

Even just stars, chimis and weapons would be nice

#4373 1 year ago

Question, for the Katana ramp shot. Do the ball rails need adjustment on the recent run of machines, or did Stern resolve the issue after the earlier runs? My born date is Aug 2019. I haven't had much difficulty completing the shot but just wanted to ask in case it was something that I absolutely needed to do.

#4375 1 year ago

So I've been having an issue where lil deadpool modes won't start all the time. The problem is the metal piece that holds the opto sensor is not level with the playfield. It looks like there is too much clear coat inbetween the metal and the wood, or they didn't cut the playfield low enough for this piece to lay flush. So the ball is getting stuck on the gap between the wood and the metal piece. This thing looks like its connected to the entire backside of the curve around the deadpool lil DP area. There isnt really a bolt underneath that i can try and crank it down tighter into the wood with. Has anyone else had this issue or found a solution?

Well it’s been a fun ride, but I’m out. Just traded DPLE for MBRLE

Do all of these have a bare wood bottom? Even though I wont see it, it still bugs the hell out of me.

I’m pretty sure every pin I have ever owned had a bare wood bottom. We have owned a good amount

#4379 1 year ago

There's 8 pins here atm and none have a painted base. I don't know how that can bug anyone but if it does now's the time to start masking up.

It bugs me because it looks like a random sheet of rough unsanded ply wood from the stack at home depot, unlike the nice smooth bottoms of all of my other Sterns. But I guess it's just another thing that they cheaped out on.

What? Real ply is a huge upgrade on your other Sterns which use cheap MDF. Ply would cost Stern significantly more and IMO the natural grain looks infinitely better.

#4383 1 year ago

DeadPool is an absolute work of art in every way except them dam ugly washers that damage your balls, diffuse the light and for me distract an otherwise perfect playfield.
So today I chucked mine in favour of a redesigned set of clear plastics. It’s the little things that get me excited which for some reason the wife says about me when I get a little amorous hehe

I was actually gonna try these colour coordinated red-left and Blue-right but after I made these protos just loved the clean look so I’m probs gonna leave as is for now and see how they perform.

Now that it is finished I wanted to share some pictures of my "modded out" Deadpool Premium. As you will surmise, I am addicted to mods. I know not everyone is, but I am and I have done it on all 8 of my games with Deadpool being the most extensive. We really loved the game out of the "box" but even more so now.
We think that we are lucky to be in a hobby with so many creative and supportive suppliers of really terriffic mods. Some of the very best that we have found include The Modfather, Mezel Mods, the Mod Couple, and Robertstone0407 who did the powder coating (fusion red) for our game. Anyway, here are some pictures that we hope you'll enjoy. Please feel free to pm me for any questions.

Coin door looks like it doesn't belong. Why did you choose to have it a different colour?

#4387 1 year ago

Just a matter of taste. Was afraid a red coin door would overpower the cabinet's artwork and, nobody (STERN, JJP, CGC, AP, etc.) that powder coats the metal work in colors other than black does the coin door too. Just being consistent with conventional practice. But, to each his own.

#4388 1 year ago

Sure, just seems to stand out is all.

#4389 1 year ago

maybe try working on your score 54 mil? and a gc of 365? at least u are having fun!!!!!!

Enjoy looks sweet.

Why would something you never see bother you? The plywood is much better than what they used to use. Nothing to complain about. The cabinets are now thicker than Jersey Jack’s actually.

I think they would powder coat the coin door but the issue is you need to take it apart and send in the pieces which is a pain. I had a bally/williams coin door chromed and had to take it apart and put it back together again but it came out nice.

I think it would look good in red if you ever want to do it.

Either way congrats on a beautiful game.

#4393 1 year ago

I do tons of coin doors. They’re a biatch. But, I like color matching them to the trim color when I do custom games.... took me several tries to get the right red to match the artwork..

Thanks. Did two like that. Doing another one in a few weeks

#4396 1 year ago

I was going to buy a DP Premium this week, only to find out none are available in Canada right now. I could have bought a DP pro, but it's a real toss up between the two for me. I really like the disco ball effect and added disco loops mode. Plus, drop targets are always fun! Surprisingly there are still DP LE available, but still at full MSRP.

I do have a question about the premium though. Does the left orbit always loop around to the right side, or is the ball ever stopped at the upper lanes (like the pro).

It loops around and is raised by the elevator allowing continuous loops. Not possible on the pro. One of the biggest differences. I love my LE. It’s a keeper.

How does the ball ever get to the upper lanes then if it's always looping around? Bonus X won't be as achievable as it is on the pro.

Not everyone. Life is too short to worry about insignificant stuff. A new playfield chipping - huge issue, an unpainted bottom never to be seen by man, not something to worry about.

Quoted from Rob_G:

Rob

There is an elevator that raises the ball up and it drops to the right flipper and you can continuously loop it. Just check out the spec sheet. I don’t think it would be easy to get the ball to drop to the lanes from a left lane shot, that’s a right lane shot. It’s moving too fast to drop down in the upper lanes. Also you can set the diverter to stop the ball at the lanes at each launch. Think that’s the default setting.
