LOL! I actually got her to enter her first tournament at level 257 in Schaumburg, of course we play against the who's who in pinball. It's all for fun [quoted image][quoted image]
Ok... I was mistaken based on your comment that you were lucky if your wife doesn't throw you out. I can't get mine anywhere near pins at home... no way in hell she'll be heading out to a location for a tournament. Congrats on the awesome wife... I have a feeling she won't be throwing you out!!
Quoted from xfassa:
Running code version 0.83
It looks like Stern has 0.84 for the Pro machine. No updates yet for Premium or LE.
I don't think that's correct. The email sent out only mentioned the Pro, but their website has code for both Pro and the Prem and LE.

LE V0.83.0 - Sep. 10, 2018
- Initial release.
Joined the club yesterday with LE #86. Although I couldn't find any reference to this in the DP comics, in my mind I can totally hear him saying "86 the Cheesy Puffs!"
In no way can I justify the LE price increase over the Pro. Having said that, you'll have to pry the left looping to right flipper, disco ball integration, drop target palooza, high def glass, amplified speaker system, LE specific art blades, shaker motor, lit speaker rings, T-rex cabinet, mirrored backglass, shaker motor and vinyl LP album from my cold dead hands. I can't imagine not owning the LE... it's that good so far!!
Turning out to be one of the best pinball machines ever and since the code is still early, I'm hoping it only gets better.
The first time I had Ninja Multiball, all 3 balls came down at once. But since then, it’s always spaced out. I thought it was intentional at first and it made me think of 3 ninjas sliding down a rope line all at once... sneak attack!! I thought it was sort of cool (especially since ball saver would kick in if I didn’t manage to get all 3 in play). Would be great if they could put this as a selectable setting in the code menu.

[quoted image][quoted image][quoted image][quoted image][quoted image]
The flaming truck mod is one of those mods that I hate. Hear me out... I hate it because the flat plastic fire on top of the truck didn’t bother me before. In fact, I’m not sure I even noticed it much before you posted this mod. But now I can’t stand the stock plastic and have to have this mod. This along with the replacement shooter housing mod will be on my LE someday. Nice job!!
Quoted from cpr9999:
What is the ... "replacement shooter housing "
I went to their website and it was listed under the Deadpool mods. Painted with “Boom” and some graphics. But a pic is worth a thousand words... check it out. I am trying to decide if the red on it matches or complements the LE powdercoat though before buying (will be next year at earliest anyway as wallet needs a bit of a break).
Quoted from mannymasy:
Yes, it is with the game field protector. I am disappointed that there are many balls in the air at all times, when we hit the left slingshot they jump towards the shooter. When hitting the targets of the sides, it also hurts very uncomfortable to play like that. ..
I like it. I like the music, the arts, the animations, the code. But it bothers me a lot the balls in the air, it seems that they are going to break something ... I hate that this happens in a game
Am I missing what you’re trying to say? You put a Playfield protector on and this is causing many airballs? This seems like an unavoidable consequence unless you also raise up the slingshot rubbers and any other structures that may be striking the ball too low now. Hit the ball below the center and it will most certainly be launched in the air. I’ve had maybe 1 Airball in over 200 games on my LE... definitely not a problem in this game when everything’s adjusted properly.
Thanks for clarifying that this was happening before the Playfield protector. However, point of contact with the ball is more important than power. Even a low power sling will launch a ball if striking it below the “equator” so to speak. Try the washers under the posts or just push your sling rubbers up a bit if possible.
Sling power at default and no adjustments from factory on mine. Good luck. This game is a blast to play. So glad I pulled the trigger on the LE... this pin is bolted to the floor for me for the foreseeable future!!
Quoted from redman822:
I got my Pro home last week - but other than 1 hr of playtesting to make sure everything works, my wife has banned me from playing until Christmas since it is my Christmas present, too.
To make things even worse - we will be out of town on Christmas and won't be home until a couple days after Christmas.
WTF? So many emotions from this post. I mean, a Deadpool for Xmas? Winning!!
But not being able to play it for a month? Doh!!
And part of me wants to downvote your wife... but another part of me says... wow, what a wife!! In any case, hang in there man.
I'm not seeing any issue either.
And I'm not sure I'm understanding your translation... "but it keeps hitting me below the left ramp when it hits the blue rubber, it hits the ramp down and it moves a lot." Care to try again to explain that one? Or are you just saying that your ramp doesn't appear to be bolted down well? Maybe check the screws underneath the playfield if that's the issue... or try explaining it in a different way if it's something else.
Quoted from schudel5:
I didn't read the whole thread, but I assume the bonus multiplier lights between the flippers do nothing at the moment?
No... they currently work. Bonus multipliers are activated with the Snikt shot. This is a shot to the standup target just the right of the wolverine spinner that ricochets off the standup target and onto the katana ramp/sword. This advances the shot multiplier to 2x, then the next shot to 3x, and so on. The multiplier only last a short time (I think 20 seconds, but might be wrong). The sound effect when you hit this shot is supposed to be the sound of wolverines claws deploying... in the comics, they pen this as "SNIKT".
Difficult shot, but the more I play the higher my percentage of pulling it off is becoming. No way I could ever do it every time, but I'm happy with 10-20% or so success rate.
Quoted from JMK:
Man, I keep coming to this thread hoping for some news on a code update.
The pin is very fun but IMO needs some deeper rules and mode progression.
Don’t get me wrong, our clan is still really digging the overall gameplay.
Regarding mannymasy’s ongoing airball issues, I think the protector is likely contributing to this problem.
I’ve owned an LE for a while and have virtually no airballs.
It may be tough for Stern to problem solve this issue due to the installed pf protector.
Stern of the Union address today stated that new code is due out before the end of December. Yay!! I’m hoping for a big update with some changes to wow us. I love how this game shoots, with a combination of some nice flow shots (on the prem/LE especially) and some fun ramps. But wishing the code was a bit deeper and I can’t imagine it won’t be by the time they get to 1.0
Airballs has taken up 2-3 pages of posts. Was stated to be protector at the beginning. Seems to be proven to be that now. Maybe you’d have better luck with a unique thread since this a protector issue and not specific to this game. Maybe others with a protector have experienced this and have solutions to this problem. Others with protectors might just skip a Deadpool club thread.
Quoted from BeeGeeMtl:
Anyone have issues with their BOOM button? I purchased my Pro Deadpool pin about 2 months ago, and last week the BOOM button started getting "stuck" (it would take time to "pop" back up). Then within 2 days, it got stuck altogether. Took it back to the dealer and he said "We've never had to replace a button before" (guilt trip) but they went ahead and gave me the one from the showroom.
I took it home, put it on my pin and it worked just fine. For 2 days. Today I noticed it is getting "stuck" again.
You really shouldn’t be eating chimichangas and playing at the same time. What did you expect?
Quoted from nicknack66:
Is it 6 balls automatically? I got it last night and thought there were only 4 balls, but then again, there was a lot going on and I was also trying to look at the screen from time to time. On my NGG you can start with a 3 ball multiball, but then are able to add another ball, and then another ball in Ripoff MB. Wasn't sure if with mech suit MB you had to build up the multiballs in some way (e.g. the Add-A-Ball) like in some of the other multiball modes or if it starts with 6 and I just missed it. Thanks.
I had the same question. I thought it was 6 because of what someone else posted, but pretty sure mine was only at 4. Though with the crazy light show, sounds and animations, it's possible I missed something.
I felt like a billion was mine for the taking after i was well over 600mil on ball 1 with 3 more balls to play (including extra ball I scored in ball 1). Worst game ever after that. Ugh!
But ball 1 was the reason I play pinball. I was in the zone with ninja multiball, 3x playfield running. Super boom loaded up. Mechsuit was a blast and I destroyed disco loops. 6x bonus multiplier ended up with an bonus of approx 105mil.
Pinball can be a cruel mistress sometimes.
Quoted from paul_8788:
Is anyone else ever getting decent end of ball bonus multipliers on a Premium/LE? I am at 1x 99% of the time. From watching videos of the Pro, the ball is in the top lanes way more than Premium/LE due to the Premium/LE doing the full orbit up the ramp. Looks like on the Pro the diverter is down most of the time to drop the ball into into the top lanes and then into the pops when shooting the left orbit.
My guess is it is much easier to get a decent end of ball multiplier on the Pro than the Premium/LE, or maybe it is difficult on both, or maybe I just suck.
Quoted from nicknack66:
Most of the time I am also getting 1x bonus but I think part of it is that I like to go for the super skill shot. It’s worth more, may lock a ball if the lock is lit, and it fits my personality (I like the full plunge with the super skill shot - no patience for the delicate plunge shot to try and hit the lit upper lane). Sometimes I do get 2x but that’s the most I’ve ever gotten. My playing skills probably suck as well so that doesn’t help (still haven’t crossed 500 mil even with the latest code update).
I also like to go for the super skill shot... but a trick I use is to lower the auto plunger strength (now in settings with new code). Now I can manually full plunge at the beginning of balls for the super skill, but when I’m in multiball during the ball-save period, each new ball auto-plunged ends up in the lanes (play with the strength). This gives me more lane triggers and also gives me a few more seconds to make shots with the other balls in multiball.
Quoted from amkoepfer:
Has anyone had an issue with the new code crashing mid game? A friend told me not to install new code until next update due to the crash issue, but i wanted to see if anyone else has had issues
I've been running 0.97 since it came out and probably a few dozen games or more. No issues with crashing here... I think there would be reports in this thread if this were true.
Quoted from cpr9999:
It happened occasionally so I added an additional piece of cushion to existing rubber at the end just before it jumps onto sword. Fixed it
Could you post a pic of your solution? Been meaning to try this myself. It happens quite regularly to me, especially when the ball is flying around the loop at high speed. I think it hits the ramp portion that directs it back up on the katana and gets airborne. A few times it’s going so fast that it bounces off katana, bounces on playfield and over into left outlane... super frustrating when that happens.
I will be adding some dead drop foam in strategic locations when I’m back to my game.
In addition to the color of the boom button, keep an eye out on the bottom right side of the LCD screen. It shows you how many boom “bombs” you have saved up. When you get to 4, it turns into one large boom “bomb”.
Quoted from Peanuts:

Well... other than the changes in the Mechsuit multiball jackpots this looks to be mostly adjustments to timing/grace periods/scoring.
0.96 added a bunch of new fun features, but not so this time. 0.97 was bug fixes and 0.98 are these minor enhances. Don't get me wrong, they are definitely appreciated, but I guess this shows how complete the code already is. Personally, I'm still hoping they manage to throw in some cool stuff to wow us when they release 0.99 and 1.00... before they declare the code to be finished.
Quoted from PinMonk:
Premium/LE is better. Game is a clunky shooter on both versions, but the Premium is a better overall experience. Maiden and TWD are all-time classics, so it's not above those. Probably just below Star Wars (which has come a LONG way since launch), IMO. Deadpool code has improved a lot.
I don't know that lightning flippers would help gameplay. Ball times would be shorter, but it might make the clunk worse if it changes the way you flip to account for the missing bit at the ends of them...
I had my LE at home and hadn’t played other versions initially. My LE shot great from my initial setup with only minor tweaks. I think a good indicator of setup now is how easy is it to get to Mechsuit multiball. Because this multiball is from earning weapons and weapons are earned from combo shots, you get a good sense of how well the game flows if you can hit a lot of combos. I can often get to Mechsuit by second ball.
I honestly had no idea why people described it as a clunky shooter in some initial reviews because mine shot so well. I thought they were upset about the rejects from the katana ramp. Even with perfect setup I’m typically only 50-60% for this ramp. But I recently played a pro on route and a premium at another location. And now I get it. Both of these did not shoot as well as my LE at home and I had plenty of shots I would describe as clunky.
It’s true for all pins to a certain degree, but I think it’s really important on this pin to get the setup right. I also found that after a fresh waxing, when the ball is really flying, I can hit the katana ramp shot a lot more often.
Quoted from Flipnaught:
What should I look out for having a machine setup on carpet? Are there any pads or anything that anyone suggests putting under the feet?
For carpet I use these... can get at Walmart or Home Depot for quick pickup.
Depending on the type of carpet, they can help with nudging. And easier to move for maintenance.
Quoted from Lermods:
... this is how stern does it in the premium and LE.
I applaud the attempt to get the spinner out to all games, as this is a super cool feature during Disco modes. However, your setup has very little in common with how Stern does it in the prem/LE. The light and geometry of light/ball are uber important if you want the dazzling light effect on your gameroom ceiling as well as the playfield. And of course the strobing/flashing effect is important as well, but I think this is a code thing where your hands are probably tied with respect to matching.
Quoted from redman822:Hey all - I have acquired some 3.75" figures to mod out my DP.
I am new to the whole mode process - I know I don't want to connect the figures to the actual plastics, that much is obvious - so what advice can you all give me on how to do this?
Thanks in advance...
Reach out to Bryan_Kelly for the best mounting techniques for figures in your games. On second thought... maybe skip that idea and just follow the advice posted by Pin Monk. It'll turn out better and there won't be any name calling!!
Quoted from Robertstone0407:
Installed these from hooked on pinball. They are bad ass and made of real metal not plastic. Blown away. Easy install. Im gonna solder in a bigger brighter led though as they dont light up much[quoted image][quoted image][quoted image]
HOOKED , might be worth upping the cost by a few bucks and including brighter LED’s with the kit. Or at the very least, making a recommendation on which particular LED has the appropriate brightness for the look you intend (plus will still fit). Thinking about ordering these soon and would prefer not to reinvent the wheel if this has already been worked out.
Quoted from Robertstone0407:
Stern is cheap and dont use sockets its a little cheap board with an LED. Im gonna solder in a red wedge led light
Ok... Wasn’t aware there weren’t actual led bulbs in the new pops since i hadn’t looked inside. Robertstone0407 , would you consider posting a pic of before and after if you do the solder on new leds like you said.
Quoted from manadams:
Has anyone created a sound mod for this game yet on the R-rated speech or little deadpool? Thinking about picking one up and that would help my decision a little.
Thought I might need something like this before getting mine. After playing it, I really don't think it’s lacking anything in the callout dept and not sure it would benefit from rated-R... but I’m open to having my mind changed if a good option comes along. But I definitely wouldn’t let this be the only reason you don’t get one. One of the best games out there today for sure!!
Don’t use Naptha unless you’re doing a complete strip down and re-wax. It will remove all the current wax and you don’t want that unless it’s just too dirty for novus to work. Novus 1 is to be used between waxing... it will clean up without removing too much of your current wax layer. Then, you can add wax on top, or just play after the novus 1 depending on how fast you want it to be. Don’t forget to clean and polish your balls and replace if any signs of pitting or other wear.
Quoted from chuckwurt:
Call around to the stern distros and find out.
Or google works too. Haha
Calling is probably best bet, as that gameroomguys listing has “special order” as the stock status. My guess is it’s a non-updated listing and you won’t find if they can get it til you try to order. My recommendation is to call JJ at Game Exchange. He responds super quick and has the best customer service in the hobby.
I would add that my LE is one of my favorite games in my lineup and absolutely one of the most beautiful. Mirrored backglass makes it worth it alone in my eyes (among all the other upgrades). You won’t regret it if there are any left.
1.01 is out!!
LE V1.01.0 - May 8, 2019
- Updated LIL' DEADPOOL LOCK Device:

- Added UTIL->RESET->VOL which will reset all audio settings to their
- Append (MAX) to the credit message if the number of credits equals
the CREDIT LIMIT adjustment.
T-rex hurry ups with the drop targets more clearly defining that the hurry up is active should be a nice feature. I love it when something you didn't think was broken and already worked pretty nicely is enhanced even further to make the game play more enjoyable. Nice work Tanio!!
Just updated and put a few games on it. As I mentioned before, T-Rex quest was just fine before, but now it's INTENSE and I love it. Unless I just didn't notice it before, they added a heartbeat sound effect during the 12 second hurry-up timer for the cash in at the lil DP collect. Truly brings this mode/quest into it's own and defines it much better I think. Love the risk/reward of going for multiple T-rex shots before cashing in. With the points on the LCD counting down, you can see how much you're risking if you choose to keep going to build it up instead of just taking the easy points.
I did notice that my lil DP multiball behavior seemed messed up a bit. Not sure if a bug, but lil DP multi ball started on it's own while I was trapping up a ball with the flippers with no ball captured in the lil DP area. Pin just ejected a ball into the shooter lane and wham, lil DP multiball. Guessing this had something to do with the settings they implemented for the drop targets not capturing the ball, but I didn’t read those close enough to see what they are doing. Will have to play with the settings if so, because I never had any issues with the way mine worked before.
Quoted from Wotto:
Do they not retain scores now?
Didn't Stern add that recently?
I can tell you that I did nothing extra other than load the last two updates with quick update. No settings adjust or anything and it seemed to hold all my settings automatically. My GC was on there from before and eject power from hellhouse seemed to be similar (though I didn't go into settings to check)
I suspect it’s a bug. Hopefully corrected soon.
Quoted from Mahoyvan:
After my first plunge I hit the right orbit, then up the ramp. Scored the secret skill shot, but not Ninjapocalypse... Did I have to have a spawned ninja first to score it?
I have noticed that most of the time the right orbit doesn't register for a couple seconds after the plunge, so maybe this is it. Personally, I understand not counting the right orbit switches on a plunge, but the timeout delay should really be set to like a quarter or half second because it's quite possible to hit that right orbit again immediately off the plunge and I'd certainly like to get credit for it. I'm hoping they fix this if possible.
Quoted from nicknack66:
For those of you that have upgraded to 1.01, given what seems like a bug(s), is the update worth the bugs, or better to hold off and stick with 1.0 for now?
Quoted from PinMonk:
1.0 has bugs that are annoying, too, like losing the regen without getting your ball back. I'd still recommend 1.01.
Plus... now that the settings are saved when you update, you really aren’t out much by updating. The bug i saw wasn’t a game changer or anything... just a minor annoyance that will soon be fixed I hope.
Quoted from Eskaybee:
DP is such a freakin cool and unique game. There’s a lot of talk about how cool the Katana ramp and Snikt shots are, but what about that colossus shot?!? I’m loving that shot! I think i may like it more than the Katana ramp. So cool to whip it around and hit the target. Plus, it’s integrated very well into the rules/code.
That’s my random post of the day; still got a high going on and cant stop thinking about this game haha.
Completely agree. It’s a very findable shot and satisfying to hit. Because it doesn’t have the flow of some of the other shots, I think it gets a bad rap. Glad to know others like it as much as I do.
And just like that, some of the defaults (possibly seen as bugs) are addressed... along with a couple scoring changes.
LE V1.02.0 - May 13, 2019
- Added Adjustment - "LIL DP START REQUIRES BALL LOCK" (Default is YES).
- YES: The ball must be locked behind the Lil' Deadpool drop targets in order
to start a Lil' Deadpool mode. (This was the default behavior in v1.00.0).
- NO: When the Lil' Deadpool is lit GREEN for lock and the Lil' Deadpool stand-up
target is hit, the device will attempt to lock the ball behind the drop targets.
If the ball is not locked within 4 seconds, the next Lil' Deadpool mode will start
automatically. (This was the default behavior in v1.01.0).
This adjustment is ignored if the "DISABLE LIL DP TARGET BANK" adjustment is set to YES.
- Fixed: Right orbit switch was ignored for 2 seconds after ball leaves shooter lane.
- Updated Super Skill Shot: timer increased from 3 seconds to 5 seconds.
- Updated Ninjapocalypse: awards 5M, 5.5M, 6M, ... 10M max.
- Updated Ninjapocalypse display: added score and ninjas collected.
- Snikt display: added playfield multiplier value.
Just saw a post on Tilt Forums that T-rex now has a scoring exploit with the new code. Tournaments should not use 1.01 or 1.02 because of this exploit which in the example provided on that post could give you up to 3B for 4 collects of the T-rex if you were to build the hurry up with max multipliers.
Makes me want to try this at home just to see my score blowup, but then I'd have to reset GC because I'd never get to beat that after they fix it (which will probably be soon the way they are cranking out fixes/updates). Who am I kidding? I'd never be able to hit enough shots perfectly anyway, so probably wouldn't be noticeable to me.
Boom!! Finally joined the Billion point club. Haven’t been playing much lately, so it felt good. Most of the points came on ball 1 (~700mil) with a stack of T Rex with Ninja multiball. Next goal, 2Bil and making it to the wizard modes.
Quoted from Eskaybee:
Makes me wonder if they did anything to tweak their Snikt shot or not? I wonder what pitch they run it at? Has anyone done anything to make their Snikt shot more successful?
I'm pretty sure if I put an extra button on the lockdown bar and wired it directly to the snikt shot so that I could activate it at will, I'd still not come close to 10bil.
Quoted from melumga:
When I first got my machine, the Hell House VUK would kick the ball to the top of the right flipper, allowing me to catch it. Nowadays, it kicks to the plastic just above the flipper, sending the ball wild and often into the slings. Does anyone know how I can rectify this? Playfield is perfectly balanced. Even when I adjusted the legs to lean a little more left, it still happens. Thanks.
The hellhouse kickout power is adjustable in settings. Mine used to hit the sling and I lowered the power so it goes a bit slower and gravity pulls it to the flipper instead of the sling. Play around with that setting and hopefully it will work for you too.

I received my NIB DP premium on Wednesday, and aside from a few issues (nut for one of the screws associated with a pop bumper keeps coming off, a few of the mirror squares from the disco ball hanging off, and some decal wrinkling), it seems to be playing well. My only other issue is attaining the proper slope of the playfield. Can someone post pics of their leg levelers? I've got the back ones as flat as possible and the front ones are about as high as possible and my slope is still about 7.9 with the bubble almost split with the top line. I am using a digital level and not relying on the bubble.
That sounds really odd. I would reach out to your distributor to see if the playfield supports are mounted properly... doesn’t seem possible to get 7.9 with your leg levelers in the positions you stated. Can you post pics of where your measuring the slope and the underside of the playfield where it sits on the rear mounts?

It may still be the honeymoon stage but usually I can tell after a couple hours of play.
If you like it this much after a couple hours, just wait til you’ve had it a few months. The variety of code (battles vs MB’s, etc) and unique shot layout will only cause your love to grow. I predict you might be proclaiming this one of, if not the, best pins of all time. I know I do!!
All this talk of voiding a warranty... am I missing something? You guys getting more than a 60 day warranty on most internal parts that I thought I read somewhere? Heck, it would take half that time for me to actually order and install this supposed evil warranty voiding device (granted, I’m much slower than most).
Quoted from Only68s:
Does anybody else get an outlane drain 90% of the time when you eject from the battle scoop?[quoted image]
Scoop eject power is in the settings. Increase it or decrease it til you get the trajectory you want for your playfield slope. Used to happen to me and i changed it and now can drop catch most times on right flipper.
Quoted from maffewl:
That’s how all new Stern playfields look. They have changed their clearcoat process.
I think you are exaggerating the word "all"... I can assure you that NONE of my new Sterns have shown this planking. I have Deadpool LE, Munsters LE, and JP Premium bought over the last couple of years with no planking. I do have very minor pooling around one post in Munsters but so far holding up well.
Sadly it seems to be a playfield lottery these days and this has caused me to stop buying new Sterns for the present.
Quoted from mbrave77:
Question about 5 balls and high scores. So Ive only ever played 3 balls and dont want to do a 5 ball run, but Id also like to finish this damn game.....Heres my question, do the 5 ball hi scores beat my 3 ball hi scores? Id like to make it so 5 ball scores dont count. is this possible?
If you want to play a 5 ball game but not have the high score recorded, I suggest you set it to 6 balls and just turn the game off (or do a reset with the start button) after ball 5. But if you’re just trying to finish the game, you might even set it to 10 balls (but quit after 9).
Hmmm... to each his own i guess. The wall art is super cool... but the talking Deadpool head is not bad either. Watch the video if you haven’t and decide for yourself. Would be better of course if there was a way to integrate into gameplay callouts.
