Quoted from grabul:

Yes, I know that, I tried to fix it, but it does not work.
I googled it and it seems that I'm not the only one who has problems with it...

Individual files work, just saved a bunch - zip still not working. Not sure if that's a Thingiverse global issue or what. I've not seen this feature before

#6152 3 years ago

I have definitely experienced the Gappa / sneaky trunk lock issue

You have to download the files individually. Download All does not work.
Just below the pictures, click on the "8 Thing Files" box.

Individually worked for me. Thanks! I was not able to see the link with the individual files. Thanks!

#6156 3 years ago

Absolutely delighted with my protectors.

I've noticed during play that you can get multiple keys, although I'm not sure what additional bonus there is for this, if any?

#6158 3 years ago

I don’t believe there is an extra bonus but having multiple keys allows you to play multiple locked haunts. Also, there are four haunts represented on the backglass and in the menu that are not yet coded into the game. So there may one day be a total of 7? locked haunts

Quoted from mpdpvdpin:

I hope that if new haunts are added they dont all go into the secret window. I'd rather have them get randomly picked from the main windows so.you get a chance to play more more. Similar to Batman66 where there are 2 different episodes for each of the main villains.

#6160 3 years ago

I’m not sure what Lyman will do with the additional haunts but part of my strategy is picking haunts with fewer shots on ball one to get the extra ball quickly. So if he adds them stacked on the regular haunts I hope that the player is still able to select which one to play on the LCD ...OR that the stacked haunts have a comparable number of shots.

Agreed! I can't tell you how few times I've gotten the The Giant Gila Monster, Santa Claus Conquers The Martians or The Satanic Rites Of Dracula. I think they're fun modes when I get them but I've had the game for almost a year now, and played those modes maybe 2-3 each. And I'm pretty good at the game! (just scored over 1.5B last night) I loooove the game and ain't complaining but with 9 modes overall, why place 1/3 of them in a "secret" window?

I'd also love it if they can make the PHONE-A-FIEND more accessible. I've never gotten to it once...ever.

But even with those small qualms, the game is a blast to play and everyone involved should be super-proud of making one of the best pins of all-time. Truly a great mix of all the best elements.

#6162 3 years ago

Finally got around to installing some Black Friday pickups on my Elvira. Pinwoofer Super Kit, LED speaker lights and a shaker. Have art blades left to do, that’ll be a first for me lol.

#6163 3 years ago

Keep cracking at her...I’m working towards 5 billion and I think it’s possible on this table. My high is almost 4 bil to date. Go for the extra balls. My best games are when I really try to focus and try to complete everything in the game and flip the house. If I flail at all it’s game over

#6164 3 years ago

I enjoy how special they are to get to, wouldnt want to cheapen it.

How the hell are you getting 5 billion? Where do all the points come from?

#6165 3 years ago

Check the scores for EHOH on pinside. I’ve detailed what I did in each game. One of them involved a Gappa 6 ball that net about 880 mil. I’ve not hit 5 bil yet but I think it’s possible.

Quoted from Chalkey:

#6166 3 years ago

Jesus. I got to gappa 6 ball once and it didnt even GC my game (570mil).

#6167 3 years ago

It’s not only Gappa of course, you really have to complete nearly every aspect of the game to put up a huge score ...all garage multis and get the super jackpots, house party with as many super jacks as you can nail, They came from space...and complete it (big points) trunk Multi with superjackpots, Phone a fiend (Big points), Directors cut and complete it (big points) defeat all deadheads especially Creepo as you need the super head shot to flip the house. While you’re doing all this you’ve gotta keep raising your multiplyers, using the double bonus wisely. On the 3.7 billion game I had completed all shots in 6 modes with the 3 shots for Trailer trash and played all the hidden haunts as well. In order to do all this you really have to focus on collecting the extra balls (at 2 completed haunts, 2 deadheads defeated and the EB in the super manos wheel). It’s....a lot! The game is just SO PACKED. Haha.

I get that but if they add 4 more haunts to the secret room for a total of 7, I'd be lucky to see all before I'm dead LOL!

#6169 3 years ago

So is add a zombie multiball an add a ball mode? If so how do you add? Have tried shooting the garage, ramps, crypt. Nothing seems to do if.

Quoted from Syco54645:

The garage multiballs can only be extended. In Add-a-Zombie, if you shoot the garage, an additional jackpot shot will light. (IIRC, it starts with three lit.)

Thanks. I was not actually paying attention to jackpots when I was trying to figure it out. Given the name I thought it was an add a ball. That is unfortunate. That would have been quite fun. Still one of the all time best games.

Anybody know of a guide for removing the house?

My house ramp opto seems to collect shots sometimes when it shouldn't be and I think the house needs to removed to get to it.

It would be nice if there was a setting for frequency of getting some of these modes.

#6175 3 years ago

When will Stern make more of these?

#6176 3 years ago

Going back on the line in March but they will likely only run off 2-500. Most distributors wait lists are long. Production can’t keep up with the demand unfortunately.

[quoted image][quoted image]</block

Is the pin woofer super kit worth the money and how’s the shaker integration? I just added an external sub woofer to my BKSOR premium and that seemed to help a lot.

#6178 3 years ago

having an issue where the crypt only opens half the time, everything works fine in the test but sometimes i just keep hitting the crypt and it doesnt open. any ideas?

#6179 3 years ago

EHOH was going to be a Christmas present for the family till I found out it was sold out. I put down a $1000 deposit at Orange County Pinball. Got one of Evan’s last spots and hopefully Stern comes through. Really want this game as does my whole family of six. Can’t believe how fun and deep this game is.

I heard of a game shooting like butter but never understood what that meant till I played Elvira. WOW!! So bought Stranger Things pro for the family for Christmas this year. Will tied us over till Elvira arrives, hopefully.

I really hope my deposit doesn’t fall through. This game is a must have for me and I am not even a huge Elvira fan.

#6180 3 years ago
Quoted from Rob_G:

With the game off, reseat the SD card on the main board. If that doesn't work, take the SD card out and reload it with a fresh SD card image downloaded from the Stern website.
The same happened to my game a few weeks ago.
https://sternpinball.com/support/sd-cards/
Rob

I have started making a couple of cards while I am going through the motions. The SD cards are inexpensive enough to have a back-up. I also am keeping older ones, just in case I need to roll-back for whatever reason.

Quoted from grabul:

Hello,
made my own design of a new crypt facade printed in 3d.
The print consists of five skull heads having leds in the eyes.
The logo of dead head signboard is iluminated from behind by the existing led in the crypt.

[quoted image]

That is so cool. I am impressed by the talent and creativity I see here, just amazing.

#6182 3 years ago

House flood light synced speaker lights.

#6183 3 years ago

Looks great. How did you hook up? BTW, a piece from bent plastic takes away all of speaker reflection.

Great model grabul , turned out great! I see why you say “don’t ask me to make you one” pretty much like micro surgery to wire it but well worth it .

Hi Mageek,

very well done! Especially the extra lightning of the dead head sign from the back.
Glad to see you took the time and made the effort to recreate the model.
Also thank you very much for suporting my work at thingiverse, I appreciate it!

PS: starting to redesign the roof of the crypt in 3d, want to put a gargoyle on top of the roof too, well see how far I get ...

If it means anything I intend to print and assemble at least one. Probably do another for a friend. After my printer is working that is...

#6188 3 years ago

I made a new airbrush Kit for Elvira Premium include a custom airbrush speaker panel from us.

I really hope you get one. I traded my mint HUO documented twilight zone for a brand new elvira house of horrors with about 2k in mods.and I have absolutely ZERO REGRETS. This game is a masterpiece and literally the best game I have ever played much less owned

I have had my elvira for 2 and half months and already have over 750 plays if that tells you how fun it is.everyone that comes over cant stop playing it

#6191 3 years ago

Really hope many more of these get made. My work has a deposit down with CoinTaker. Last correspondence was probably February. But that was a month ago from CoinTaker.

Had this happen last night, not sure what causes it. Opened coin door, went into crypt test and reset it, worked fine thereafter.

I really hope I do as well. I just love that game and I will really be disappointed big time if it falls through. Evan at Orange County said he had five available to take deposits for. Did Stern give him those numbers he would receive? And does that mean he will get them? New to the hobby

#6198 3 years ago

If he asked for 5 he’ll get 2.

Well that’s not very encouraging at all. Hopefully others back out in front of me. Damn that sucks. Too paid paying a deposit apparently means nothing.
