NEVERMIND Memory card was tapped and half out.. sorry.

#5552 8 days ago

I hate DJ mode. Now I have to figure out how to get a line out from Elvira to my audio system and/or HDMI with video too.

I *love* DJ mode! When I heard about this I thought “who would want to do this?” Well, me. What an awesome option for a game room.

Lyman, if you read this - I would love to see an option to have the game power up in DJ mode rather than attract mode (maybe only if game on Free Play?), the ability to set a custom message in place of “DJ Mixer!!!!!!!!” and a way to fix or change the DJ background animation.

You can breathe now. Sorry for the scare. But now you have the topper so Elvira can scream for you.

Does anyone know a source for better apron cards for this? I have the stock ones and would like to upgrade at least the pricing one

Sorry I missed it, sounds like topper is more interactive that I originally thought.
Does she scream at you with new code?

#5556 8 days ago
Quoted from pinballaddicted:

Our LE did the same thing. We put a little grease where your photo is and also the same spot as your diagram. You will also notice as the mech moves up and down, there is a slot the mech needs to slot into when the skull is all the way down. Your original photo looks like the mech is not slotting into the slot. You may have to bend the mech a little. You will see what I mean when you put it back together.
Good Luck.

I have the scoop positioning working, but there's yet another problem with it now. When a ball hits the skull with a good shot, the skull and entire scoop assembly bounces up a bit. It never did that before. I've put several hours into sorting this mech out already and have disassembled/reassembled it several times. For such a sloppy hinged scoop, the tolerances for everything else are pretty darn tight with very little room for discrepancy.

I have not noticed that on our game. There is a spring behind the skull to locate it when the mech is all the way down. The screw that holds this together can be screwed in an out of the skull to give a little adjustment. We screwed ours in a few turns on the advice of a friend (extendo) of ours and have no issues.

Yes, mostly during some multiball starts. The shaker motor goes off at the same time to add to the effect if you have one. Not as loud as the scream in GB, but hoping this adjustment could be added. I personally love the topper and it really adds to the overall fun experience with the game.

#5559 8 days ago

Got to admit this game has grown on me. At first it was kinda Ok for me, but after the last few updates, especially the 1.0, it has gone from potential trade bait to a keeper. Actually so has BM66 for me. I am actually looking to buy a EHOH topper if I can find one to get the total picture. Amazing how much is packed into this game!

I heard they sold out but not sure if that's true or not.

It sounds like it being limited to only 200 might not be true. So Stern may make make more if enough people show interest.

The initial allotment (don’t know the number) is sold out from Stern. I wonder if this is why we haven’t seen the topper show up on the shop page. No dealer I’ve talked to has said that Stern told them the toppers were limited (but everyone I talked to only got a few) and there is no LE plate or anything on the topper so don’t see why they wouldn’t make more if demand is there. Still not a big fan of the $1k topper precedent but I hope everyone that wants one can get one.

For those looking for measurements the topper is 26” W x 7” D x 8” H

WHAT? Stern making more than the initial advertised number of limited edition things? NO WAY that's ever happened! lol
Not complaining, cause it's great when you can get something you want.... but just sayin' Somehow, it happens.

#5563 8 days ago
Quoted from jfh:

My distributor said, in writing, that it was limited to 200.

Quoted from lasermel:

Stern themselves never advertised they were limited. In fact they never advertised ANYTHING about this topper.

I hope they make more.

#5564 8 days ago
Quoted from RobertWinter:

In writing to you or in writing from Stern? If the former, maybe they were parroting the Pinside rumor.

Don’t know why Stern won’t tell us. All the lack of information has done is upset or annoyed dedicated fans of the game.

#5565 8 days ago

It was from the distributor and in no way official word from Stern. The distributor even mentioned the strange lack of info from Stern regarding this topper.

No. I dont want more made. I have one and like the fact they were limited.

#5567 8 days ago
Quoted from Hayfarmer:

I would imagine that was a huge selling point - the fact that they were limited to 200 - and a big part of the reason people were willing to pay the $1000.

#5568 8 days ago

True, but now people who bought and were complaining bout the price are niw saying its pretty good. It is overpriced. But what isn't anymore? I get mine Friday, im sure its a keeper

#5569 8 days ago

Who is selling the toppers? I haven’t been able to find anyone who has them. I would like to get one.

Quoted from Krupps4:

The rumored limit didn’t significantly influence my decision to buy the topper. I didn’t buy the topper to resell it.

If it is/was supposed to be limited then there should be some indication of that on the topper itself. If not, Stern should make enough so anyone who is nuts enough to pay $1k for a topper and wants one can get one.

Quoted from Hayfarmer:

Technically everything is limited once they stop making them. Just like Kiss, TWD and every other topper Stern has made.

#5572 7 days ago
Quoted from Hayfarmer:

LOL, honest answer I admit, but, pretty selfish. We are not talking about a Collectors edition pinball machine we are talking about a topper.

#5573 7 days ago

Damn you boys are touchy today. So, it was said to be limited, my distributor only got a couple and held one for me. It was too expensive, so I do hope no more are made. What's wrong with that? I think its ok to be selfish

#5574 7 days ago

I didn't buy to resell, and since I'll never drop 10k plus on ce pin, its cool to have this.

#5575 7 days ago

Hello all, since installing latest code when ball is to be ejected from house my game fires several times before exiting. has anyone else had this issue or know if this is a problem that needs to be addresed mechanicaly . thanks for any ideas .

#5576 7 days ago

No, but I've noticed it sometimes needs a shake to get out, since update too

They ARE making more. Period. Sorry Hayfarmer! Fomo. One of biggest Distro has official order in and confirmed it.

Just like JP shooter rod. It might take a month or two.

Damn. I guess I can't retire now off the massive profit I was counting on. Would of been nice if they were limited, but not sellin anyways

Any of you Elvira pin owners going to add (Elviras' new Halloween song) to the games song play list?
Saw this on other pinside Halloween topic thread.

How do you add songs to the playlist?

#5582 7 days ago

What does the Feature Adjustment "Topper Scream Lockout Timer" actually do?

#5583 7 days ago
Quoted from jfh:

Pinbrowser I would imagine. And it would be replacing, not adding.

Ah. Yeah. That would probably work but way different than adding songs and/or creating new playlists.

Where did you get the camper.im looking everywhere for it .ebay or Amazon?

Quoted from DeathHimself:

I think my EHOH has reached it's mod limit for my liking lol. To be honest I didn't think I would like the Pinstadium lights in it but the UV glow really compliments it nicely especially in all dark rooms which I like to play in, it light all the playfield area nicely with some great glowing color effects from the UV.
Here is my MOD list:
Mirror Blades
Pinstadium Lights
Boney Beast Bones from Scared Stiff
Spider mod
Elvira's Scampy Camper mod
Lemax Spooky Trees
Lemax DeathHimself figure over garage
Skull totem behind crypt
Lermods Family Crypt mod
Night of the living dead zombie figure on roof ( actually a walking dead figure shhh! lol )
5.25" Speaker with speaker light kits (kit and conversion plates )
Cabinet Pyle 8ohm Dual Voice subwoofer
Lighted flipper buttons
Medisinyl Mods ( these are a must!! IMHO )
Cliffy protectors
USB extension cable ( another must have IMHO )
Lemax clown and skull tombstones on the sling covers
Boney Flipper Bats from Scared Stiff
Various GI leds changed to purple and blue for a more Erie creepy night atmosphere.
I just need to get tilt graphics lock bar button mod and stern side rails when they are available again. Who knows by that point the machine might be for sale and onto the next

Hey I just got my topper in and installed it. when I turn the game on the lights turn on I get the red eyes and a green LED on the gargoyles and nothing else happens. when I go to Diagnostics to make it open or close nothing happens. Any suggestions to get it to work would be awesome. Thanks

When the coin door is open you need pull out the interlock to allow 48V to be online. The opening and closing of the topper needs the 48V line active to operate the coil in it.

If I’m seeing it correctly it looks like the ball is trapping up under the plexi that the tree is mounted too. Try raising that plexi mount a little bit, use one or two of the tiny post rubbers under the plexi to raise it.

Loooove this game and diggin' the latest 1.0 code but is it just me or are scores generating lower after this update? I used to score 1B games every now and again, but haven't even broken 500M since the update last week. Noticed the "House Party" Super Jackpots weren't as high or maybe it's just me? I ain't complaining and I know that I have to "play better", but wondering if others have also noticed such a thing?

One of the things that changed in 1.0 was the House Party jackpots. They are now based on haunt shots leading to HP. Take a look at the change log for the math.

When updating code from v.99 to v1.0 do you select ‘quick update’ or ‘full update’ ?
