Do any honeowners have their Elviras?

#3451 41 days ago

Still no stream out there?

#3452 41 days ago
Quoted from tatapolus:

Still no stream out there?

Thats my thoughts of my post.

#3453 41 days ago

We had the game last friday for our Belgian Open Pinball... but it got stuck at customs... to be picked up on monday

So a big show,a lot of people, all newest games... and an Elvira stuck at the airport.

Otherwise it would have been streamed.

#3454 40 days ago

The customs have released the 'belgian' Elvira. A stream is planned this evening (belgian time). When I have more information, i will post them here.

It looks like the overseas versions have four back legs! What happened to the rest of the person?

#3456 40 days ago
Quoted from T7:

My game shipped with .80, and then I upgraded to .83
Please note, I needed to do the upgrade via the "SD Card Image Install". The normal USB install won't work because the file size is too large for a FAT32 USB drive.

How do you do that?

#3457 40 days ago
Quoted from Sebastian88:

How do you do that?

You don’t need to. That was bad information. Follow the instructions on the code “readme”. It separates the files so they are compatible with fat32. This post details it:

#3458 40 days ago

The stream will be available here:

It's planned at 9PM belgian time (thus in 80 minutes from now).

Got my LE, absolutely beautiful machine...only played about 6 games on it so far...I have to say I like it! Odd, it has no real attract mode yet so the playfield looks dark when not in gameplay...just red jackpot inserts and dome flashers.

Quoted from screaminr:

Everything pinball is so much cheaper in the US compared to over here . Almost makes me want to move there . We pay more for everything compared to all other countries , forget the exchange rate we even pay more for digital downloads where transport costs are zero . We have a higher minimum wage so I guess they think we can afford it .

The beauty that is Australia far outweighs our game room costs. Anytime you are in my neck of the woods, give me a yell and I'm happy to make a great time of it!

Cheers.

Quoted from FtrMech:

I like seeing the pictures, but everyone who posts about receiving their LE should report their game number and advise if their game has any clearcoat pooling (or chipping) around the slingshot posts (or other areas). The more games we hear about without any pooling issues the more it will look like Stern has fixed the problem on new production going forward. So if you've already received your LE, what number did you get and how is the clear around the posts?

Mine is LE# 106. I played a few more games on it...loving it more and more...not seeing any issues at all with the playfield.

Graysonsdad why would you downvote a good question. He is not bashing the pin or anything of that nature.

No attract lights? Can’t imagine that is planned. Every pin has that. Maybe the code update fixes?

#3468 40 days ago

Mine also has no attract mode

#3469 40 days ago
Quoted from DefDumBlindKid:

Mine also has no attract mode

Wow. Anyone that updates to the new code let us know please. I love looking at my machines in attract mode. I just can’t imagine they would intentionally leave that out. The whole point is to attract players to play on route when no one is playing. That’s why they have attract mode. Just very odd.

#3470 40 days ago

I’m sure it will be included in the update. The game just shipped...

Quoted from DefDumBlindKid:

I spoke to Pablo at Stern and he believes that the lack of attract mode will be addressed as the code develops...I thought mine was broke.

That's the cost of buying early bro

Quoted from Skyemont:

It's not an angry downvote or anything. Im just not a fan of this chime in if your playfield is ok mentality. It seems to have been resolved by Stern. If you have an issue, of course share it but we dont need to hear it all the time. Just let them enjoy their new toys before they start looking for flaws that might not even be there.
Very minor side beef, not interested in what numbers people have. Never understood that one.

New code .83 has no affect on attract mode...

Numbers i agree. Who cares. But for the price of these, i would like to know if they have issues with clearcoat right out of box. Thats all companies not just Stern. I love Elvira so hopefully its not a issue. JP just got released and its got playfield issues and that was a recent release.

I agree. Mention any issues you are having. I just dont see the point in coming in here if only to say things are all good.
They changed the art around the post on JP3 and it seems to have remedied the issue. Trust me, I've been following the thread as it will likely be my next nib purchase

#3477 40 days ago

Concerning the playfield...comparing it to my Munsters LE they look completely different. Munsters is an overall smooth whereas E3 actually has some texture to in as if a different type of bonding or application process was used...you can see outlines of each graphic on the playfield. Definitely something different going on...maybe the playfield issues were addressed.

How do we know its resolved, if not for actual customers reporting back? Since Stern has not even acknowledged a problem, you can't expect them to come out and say its fixed.

Many of us are not sure the problem has been corrected. I thought that noting which number game one has along with the condition of the clear around posts could be helpful if, for instance, owners with numbers below, say, 50 reported pooling while owners with numbers over 50 saw no problems. But there is very little feedback on House of Horrors clear coat condition so far.

Has next to no clearcoat - determined a possible improvement

#3481 40 days ago

LE numbers are cool if you are into it
I know collectors that reserve matching numbers
I like to reserve specific year numbers relevant to the theme in one way or another.
I understand this sounds corny but I like it.
Wonder who will end up with number xx I had reserved

Hope all your games are awesome !

As far as I'm aware numbers don't actually equal the exact order in which they are made

No attract mode, lol. That's a new low for underbaked code. Does it at least have end of ball bonus yet? That was missing on the reveal stream.

#3487 39 days ago

Is everybodies hounted house roof still inactive ? Mine does not move or light.

Buy early, suffer early

Buy late, get complete code & new artwork options!

If sales slow on Elvira they will make a new art package covered in Elvira titties

I’m holding out for the cleavage edition

Should clarify, I'm not faulting the design team. They don't choose when a game hits the line.

I thought I saw it spinning in the dead flip reveal? How could that feature be missing then?

Yeah. My turret only turned during a ball search. Wouldn't turn in diagnostics, either.

#3494 39 days ago

There's a live stream here :

Quoted from GamerRick:

Yep, it did during the Stream...trying to showcase features no doubt and then maybe pulled it for whatever reason...I am not concerned, the machine is certainly playable/enjoyable as is. I believe it is just a matter of time before we see updated code...IMO, this machine has plenty of potential and we are only scratching the surface...absolutely no regrets.

I apologize if this has already been talked about, but has anyone gotten or seen any official flyer of this machine?

Yes, I updated from the 0.80 it shipped with to the latest version via USB and had no problems.
