Put up a screaming hot one yesterday. Anyone else break 2 bil yet? I had Scream test (Gappa) All garage multis, house party, They came from space, completed 6 haunts, Directors cut...played one extra ball. didn’t get phone a friend, defeat the clown deadhead or get the Gappa six ball this game. It’s nearly impossible to complete everything in one game. But it’s fun to try! Oh and before anyone asks...normal tilt, glass on

I hit 2.4 billion last night on stream. Even sold the house. Your game is more impressive, though. Good going!

I think I want a Gappa Angry t-shirt.

Nice! What the requirements for flipping the house? Do you have to save Elvira in ‘They came from space’?

You guys got me motivated to install the new update and see if I can crack 2 billion. Good scores

#5657 40 days ago

Game actually scores lower now in some areas of gameplay. House party jackpots arent 750k anymore...I think it’s 150k + percentage based on completed haunts.

You get points! Shoot the cellar to start the hurry-up. Shoot the Wild Market Value target to collect. It counts down fast! I started the hurry-up, then started Double Trouble before collecting.

Quoted from mpdpvdpin:

You have to:
1. Start Phone-a-Fiend multiball
2. Start Attic Attack multiball
3. Start They Came from Space
4. Start Gar-goils Gone Wild
5. Start Gappa Angry
6. Start Director's Cut
7. Banish Creepo the Clown

Once you've accomplished those, the cellar lights to start the hurry-up.

It's 100k + 25k per haunt shot leading up to House Party.

Does the game “finish” for lack of a better term, when you sell the house? Or is it just a big bunch of points and a callout?

There isn't as big of a fanfare as I would have hoped for. You just keep playing.

#5662 39 days ago

my left ramp exit opto is out and i have been waiting on parts. is there a way in the software to tell it to ignore that and award the ramp based on other switches? i havnt even played it for over a month because why bother when you cant actually complete a single mode.

#5663 39 days ago

Have you tried realigning the opto or swabbing it with a Qtip?

The receiver is dead. The red led doesn't light. It was installed without the spacer so it shorted out on the bracket.

Has anyone upgraded their Prem backbox speakers to the larger LE type? Does it really make a huge difference? My speakers sound a bit muddy so I would probably change them if the difference were night and day.

It's a toss up for me. Much more bass in the 4ohm speakers but you have to crank it up to 40+ and the treble doesn't balance out completely. The upgraded subwoofer is a must though.

#5668 39 days ago

Not so much concerned with bass as I am with overall clarity.

The premium speakers are fine then. Would still get the sub. It's super cheap and adds so much like feeling the lightning strikes in the game.

I put Kenwood speakers in back box. Helped a bunch but not as good as pinwoofers. Need more more to get more clarity. On music pins I use pinwoofer, ehoh, Kenwood were enuf

Have you played around with the equalizer in the settings to see what sounds best to your ears?

Get the kit from Dan at PinWoofer, and you'll be happy you did!

Quoted from javagrind888:

This. The sub will allow you to turn down the backbox speakers and divert more bass power away from them, which will make them more clear

Where do you get the sub? Any preference?

#5677 39 days ago

I havnt...I honestly didn’t even know you could do that. Music and effects sound nice but Elviras intros / outros sound muddy to me. Maybe it’s just the way it was recorded.

The 4 ohm speakers make her more 'muddy' in my opinion. They make all the other effects better though.

When the house sells, I think it should show Elvira celebrating by doing her "tassel twirl" on the display.

Pinball Browser won’t help unless there is an existing clip to replace.

#5683 38 days ago

Saw the 1988 "Elvira Mistress if the Dark" movie this week for the first time in a while. I totally forgot that during the montage scene where the neighborhood kids fix up her house they play the song "Shout".

Nice nod to the film to include the "house fixing party" song from the movie during the "house party" multiball in the game.

The movie on again tonight on AMC at 830pm and it's also available to stream for free anytime if you are an Amazon prime or Hulu member.

#5684 38 days ago
Quoted from Rock_ninja:

Looking for some help....I got a topper and just installed it tonight. All the lights seem to be working but the opening part doesn't seem to do anything. We played a few test games and got multiball but it didn't open like I thought it would. After the game I went into the topper in game features (while holding down the 48v button), I press the select button to cycle between open and closed but nothing happens. The first few times it made a very faint knocking sound but now nothing. Any ideas?
Thanks!

Quoted from BillyPilgrim:

Following. This has been my experience too. Anyone else?

I have the same problem. Sometimes the red and green lights are on in attract mode and sometimes just white and sometimes nothing. I find that odd. My pop feature tests and pops but it’s never done anything in a game. Definitely connected correctly. I am thinking there are code issues if multiple people have the same problem. I’ll set to 100 and see if that does anything.

#5685 38 days ago

Ok so I tried setting my scream value for the topper to 100 percent. The topper finally did pop open once during two of three multiballs. So it appears to work but not very much. Code issues? They don’t describe anywhere what the topper is supposed to do so all I’ve seen is Zach’s You Tube unboxing video.

#5686 38 days ago

Well, not as good as a few guys here, but I'm pretty happy. 1.26 Billion (first time over a billion) .... Completed Gappa Angry and finished the house in the same game which is pretty unusual for me. What a blast! This game is amazingly fun to play! lol

What! I’ve watched that movie numerous times and never picked up on that. Cool

#5689 38 days ago

qustion for you all ? There is a huant meter on the left side of screen ,mine never moves from zero , even when huant completerd . Is this right or should the meter change. Thanks for any heip here.

I think you're referring to the "Haunt-O-Meter." ??? That's not a zero. It is the film that runs across the bottom of the screen. As you make shots, the film clips go back to the film. The number of shots (clips) required is on the right film canister.

I'm not yet a member of the 1B+ club, but I did manage to put up my best score today. Can't manage to get past Make Out Mayhem during Gappa Angry, but I did start Director's Cut for the first time.

This game continues to surprise me with how deep it is. LOVE IT!

Its so awesome!! Got my topper last nite, hooked up this morn. Pretty good, its no black knight, but does complete the game. My opinion

#5693 37 days ago

Has anyone changed out these frosted bulbs, even with Pin Stadiums still seems a little dark compared to some of my other pins!? If so, how do they look and did you stick with uni-white or.....

Pinstadiums would ruin the lighting effects in EHOH in my opinion.

Quoted from Hayfarmer:

Totally agree with this. I’ve been following topper prices since I joined the hobby. I have yet to find an original topper that has not maintained or appreciated in price. I know some hate the ridiculous prices and say that those of us that still buy them make it worse. Probably yes and no. However I got into this hobby for pure fun and certainly not to save money. It’s by far the most expensive hobby I’ve ever had. None of it is inexpensive. For me, I like to have everything for my pins and I like that the Stern toppers are interactive with the game. They add enough for me that they are personally worth it. And I know I can sell most of them years down the road. Toppers in fact seem to hold their price better than the pins themselves.

Quoted from Rob_G:

Rob

I agree. The pin is dark though so I have pinstadiums in my EHOH but I have the level set to 35%. It adds enough light to make the pin easily visible but is dark enough that all the light effects still look great.

#5700 37 days ago

Finally playing the new code after a long week at work. This game is off the charts fun. This is now the longest I’ve ever kept a game and she’s not going anywhere. Over a year old now!!!!
