Good for her. Life is too short, be happy.

#9703 27 days ago

:-)She didn’t really come out, just announced she’s been experimenting the last 19 years

#9704 27 days ago

40th Anniversary stream of Movie Macabre was on Shudder last night - she showed Mistress of the Dark, House on Haunted Hill (the original), City of the Dead and another one I forget. It’s being replayed tomorrow!

#9705 27 days ago

Also, I just saw that Shout Factory is releasing Elvira’s Haunted Hills finally, which is pretty great

#9706 26 days ago

I was able to watch the first three on shudder. Couldn’t stay awake for the 4th

LOL yep same here

Just checked in with my distributor and he said the 2022 price “should be between $8600 and $8800”. So he may not even know if they’re upping the price for connectivity features. I believe that price is un-shipped. I pick up all my games from his shop.

#9709 26 days ago

from what I recall, Elvira isn't getting the price increase that the other titles are getting. I think Elvira is seeing a $200 increase form its previous price, and that's it, no matter if it ships after Jan. 1 or not

What was the previous price? They were long gone by the time I looked for one NIB and I never even checked the price

No way Elvira doesn’t see a bigger price increase on top of the $200. Stern doesn’t want to make Elvira any longer because of all the mechs in it and the house. I heard they do not make a ton a ton of money off of it being a boutique game.

They jacked the price up last year $500 on mine. I just don’t see them increasing the price only $200. All other titles next year are seeing price increases way more than $200 on pros, premium, and LE’s. I could be wrong but doubt it. It’s Stern we are talking about=$$$$

I think the premium was around $8300

Looks like the new MSRP on EHOH is $9295 with a street price of $9195

I think those are the prices for the remainder of the year. Problem with that is Elvira is not scheduled for production until 2022

Has apron with QR code reader installed and wifi dongle on main board.

I dont have a 3D printer so I'm not the right guy to answer that question. Try pinsider yelobird, he's well versed with 3D printers.

There’s a thread on the site discussing this. Most people seem to either have a Creality Ender 3 or Ender 5, or a Prusa MK3. I have owned an ender and a Prusa, and the Prusa remains. You set it up, then you print. I had endless issues with the Ender, but others have recently reported better results. There are even newer ones now that have different features.

Yes, If you want out of the box great printing, take the Prusa MK3. But it will cost you. If you want to go cheap take an Ender 3 or 5. Ender 3 is more common, Ender 5 prints slightly larger objects. Both great machines with some small tweaking great results, but you need to get into the hobby with these. You build them yourself and do your own maintenance. The help online is ok, there are a lot of great communities. But again, no hasstle printing = Prusa, cheaper = Ender.

I myself have an Ender 5, works great after some initial setup.

I love my Ultimaker! They are expensive but just work. I also had a Prusa but sold it.

Has anyone used Pinbrowser to tweak anything on their EHOH? I'm thinking of swapping out one of the songs like Shout with Oingo Boingo's Dead Mans Party for October and Halloween.

Problem is, I've never used Pinbrowser. Does anyone know if this is a easy to do for a novice?

#9727 24 days ago
Quoted from jcoble:

Just got a topper for my EHOH and it seems to be interacting with the game and has been detected, but the lid hasn't popped open yet. What activates this in the game? Thanks, and sorry if this has been asked and answered before, my limited forum skills didn't produce an answer.

Are they still making toppers? What are they going for these days?

Something tells me that doesn’t sell at the price. Is Stern done making them or more on the way?

I’d be interested to know how this works too. Although it could be a little weird since she says the lyrics as the song starts.

I thought about that. It could be used elsewhere as well. Drawing a blank on where they have "Drunk Drivin" in the game but there are probably other parts of the game different music could be used. Is there music during House Party?

At first I thought the "Shout" song seemed to be a weird choice for the game. However after re-watching the "Elvira Mistress of the Dark" movie I remembered that was the song they played for the montage where the town helps her fix up her old house so she can sell it. I appreciate that attention to detail by the design team.

Same exact thing for me - my wife and I were watching MOTD when it was on Shudder this weekend and I was surprised to hear that song during the house montage. It fits!

Greetings Elvira fans, Has anyone one had a problem with the decal on top of the trunk peeling off. if so what's the fix Thanks

Not sure there is a fix due to the design (1piece) other than glue. Mine came up with in the first 3 months. I was just going to let it ride. Doesn't affect game play and there are bigger problems in the world

#9738 23 days ago

$2200 doesn't include shipping?!

They can still be preordered for delivery next year at MSRP

#9740 23 days ago

Lots of people ordered pins from the 2022 Mandalorian run at MSRP in May and they are being affected by the price increase… will it hit the topper too?

I really like the topper, but even at $999 it’s just too much for me.

#9741 22 days ago

Was it just last week she was on Shudder?

Now looks like a stint with Netflix. Can't wait.

I've had that issue. I tried using double sided tape. No good.....probably because the amount of tape I used was too small.

The mech kind of rubs off the decal, you need to reposition the whole decal with a full piece of replacement tape - the 3M 378(?) strongest double sided tape. Also slightly loosen the hinge side - it looks a little wonky but will keep the decal intact.

#9745 17 days ago

So is there or isn’t there more toppers being made? Only Nitro was selling for the next release and I see he pulled down his ad. Is Stern done with the Elvira topper?

#9746 17 days ago

Wondering if anyone might have some insight on this: The trough is occasionally kicking out 2 balls at once in to the shooter lane. Doesn’t seem to me like the trough power is up too high as sometimes it barely kicks out the ball enough(not often but sometimes.) I guess I can try lowering the kick out strength but curious if it could be something else? Thx for any help!

I have that same issue from my May 2021 build. I;ve thought of applying some kind of adhesive but don’t want to mess with it too much. I guess it doesn’t bother me excessively. But, yeah, I’d love to know how to get it to stick.

Magnetized, more than likely the cause

ah ok, thx! So balls can become magnetized even if the game(Elvira) doesn’t have a magnet in it, huh?(sorry, newb question)

Try unplugging the connectors to the trough board and reseating them.
