My birthday is this Monday and look at what's arrived!
Lovin it! Fast and fun. I'm enjoying the light hearted feel of it. Makes for a fun pinball experience.
I like the ramp diverter the LE has to carry the ball from the orbit to the flipper, really exciting to see it come around.
I haven't messed with my pitch yet, just shoved the game into position and started a few games. The right ramp was working pretty decent as-is. Did have some shots not make it all the way, but that's a reality with any ramp. I'll play with the pitch tomorrow to see if I can tune it in better but it certainly is shooting pretty good just as I placed it.

Ok, so I'm settling in after one week with Deadpool, and have some questions about my first pinball machine.
I've picked up new fancy balls, rubber feet for the legs, and am ordering a Pinstadium. What else do I need? Are plastic protectors, Titan rubbers, or anything else necessary to keep it nice?
Do whatever you like and makes you happy, but most machines don't "need" anything. Sometimes Pinside can go nuts with all the protector stuff.
My general rule is keep the game clean, keep the balls in good shape, and address things as they need to be addressed. Without going all "Grandma's sofa covered in plastic" with the game.
Wow, I didn't realize what a big speaker upgrade the LE had. This is a full-on music pin. The quality of the sounds and music really add to the whole experience. Very immersive. I am so happy with my purchase.
I really like the katana shot. It's tricky, but so satisfying to see that ball loop around.
I've looked but I didn't see any type of LP order cards in my stuff. Was there something?
I had my best game yet on it yesterday, I think I completed 4 of the 5 villains, and lit the game up some more. I think this is an amazing pinball.
I have to really give my compliments to the whole sound package. All the sounds, call outs, music, are excellent. I know some people want more R-rated deadpool, but as someone not that familiar with the license, and just evaluating the pinball, I find the call outs excellent because they are performed with such projection, he has a lot of energy. That really elevates the game.
The retro noises break through all the other audio, and you have a really overwhelming soundscape created. "Pinball cacophony" is a big part of the attraction of any machine, and this one really lands.
Quoted from x-rug-x:
I believe the topic of waxing to be more of a 'religious' topic.
We don't see a lot of anecdotal evidence of clearcoats disappearing that wax would have protected otherwise.
I used to wax my games in the beginning, but that was part of babying a new possession. As my collection has grown I've stopped worrying about it and its not like the games are all destroyed.
That's weird, a piece like that was put there on purpose. At least it solves your problem.
I love my LE and so happy I got it. The sound upgrade has to be experienced. Is an LE ever ‘worth it’? Dunno but you gotta enjoy your life.
I love this game. So much fun. Just had some new games on the new code. I don't think I even saw anything new, but so much fun to play.
Just had Ninja-pacalypse stacked on Disco stacked on Little Deadpool. Game was going nuts.
The light show is really interesting and unique. Pretty amazing what can be accomplished even if you don't have all color changing lights.
Quoted from Yfichelle:
Hi all, my dp premium is coming... but i dont put a playfield protector... i see a lot of discussion concerning the dimpling especially on Deadpool...
Do you have a PP on your deadpool ?
When I got my first machine I was literally afraid to play it, because Pinside had already made me crazy.
Ladies and gentlemen take my advice, pull down your pants and slide on the ice.
Quoted from Midway-Man:
Anyone else had a powersupply issue after just 4 days. There is a DP LE on location here I was going to play. But it already broke down. The operator does not know much about pinball machines. So i helped him diagnosing the issue. It turned out to be a broken powersupply. I’m just curious if it is a known issue with DP or most likely a bad part.
That would be a standard part on all current Sterns, and I've never heard of it happening so definitely one of those fluke problems. It would still be under warranty.
Quoted from BeeGeeMtl:
Again, I'm surprised there isn't a manual somewhere explaining the game's rules. Weird for something I paid over $8k for (Canadian).
The rules are still being developed, as usual with pins. In time some people generally document a game but as stated there's a discovery process with pinball.
I just played a game and paid special attention to Ninja multiball. Each of the 3 balls was released by themselves with a short delay.
Also, at the end of every game, any balls in the katana are released one at a time.
Quoted from paul_8788:
On an unrelated note, looping the Dazzler shot on the LE, ripping that spinner over and over again is becoming one of my favorite shots. Is it "worth" the price increase over the Pro to get a Premium just for that shot? I dunno, but it is so satisfying I can't imagine playing without it.
I agree, that's fun as hell.
I don't think any LE is "worth it", the Pros are the best value, but I like having the best version of the game.
Quoted from pinballkyle:
Hi there, has anyone came up with a fix for the switch in the mode start kickout hole? Occasionally, when the battle is lit and the ball is shot in, it will not register the mode, instead the game will do a 'courtesy kick'. I've tried to do many adjustments to make it 100% but I haven't had much luck yet. I'd say 8/10 shots to the mode start hole work correctly on mine. Thanks
That's odd. Can't say I've ever experienced that. Has to be a physical adjustment though of some kind.
Quoted from mannymasy:
When hitting the targets of the sides, it also hurts very uncomfortable to play like that.
Hmmm, interesting. I remember that being an issue on AC/DC pro as well, the standups instead of drops ricochet the ball around.
On my DPLE with the drops, the power gets absorbed.
Slingshots power is settable in the game settings as well.
Just offering that as an alternative for people without a protector.
Yes, this was a great update. Gotta love the types of updates that make it feel like a new game.
I got the rampage mode going, really cool and wild.
I'm still amazed at the quality of the light show on this game with it not being all color-changing. Feels very fresh and exciting.
