Quoted from NoQuarters:

I have not had a ball lock in the trunk yet. When lid opens and ball goes in trunk the ball fires out immediately each time I have gotten a ball in. ??
I have not really paid attention as to the lid opening or not when it is supposed to with a lock. I would guess the lock is lit because I have heard Elvira say shoot for the ramp or something to that effect when I have seen the lid pop open.
So what is the proper shot sequence and operation of the trunk and trunk multiball ? Have not gotten real familiar with the game yet... Explanation of how the trunk is supposed to work would be helpful. Thanks.

JitT multiball:
Hit one of the three combination lock targets to lock in one of the pieces of junk.
Complete trunk combination lock targets: trunk opens and white 'Junk in the Trunk' insert lights at left ramp.
Shoot left ramp to lock first ball and collect piece of junk.
Repeat process to lock second ball and start JitT multiball.
You can also sneak a lock if the ball bounces into the trunk eject.

Quoted from Mad_Dog_Coin_Op:

I added a little platform behind the pool so I could attach some trees. My hope was to make the house a little more creepy. I thought it turned out pretty good. [quoted image][quoted image]

Those trees are PERFECT for the house. Nice!

Has there been any word on support for the headphone jack or the physical knocker?

Quoted from moonduckie78:

Been having a similar issue with one of my gargoyle rods getting stuck in the up position.

That was what ultimately lead to my discovery.

They say if it stays up for more than four hours you should call your doctor.

LE #037 is coming my way very soon

#961 8 months ago

I am wondering how to disable the auto launch feature completely as I am getting phantom auto launches on ball one and sometimes on two and three as well not sure why this is happening? I also find when I’m trying tomake the skill shot the ball exits the shooter lane and hits the wall of the Crypt and looses momentum. Anyone else experiencing this? Even though I have not played much I have not seen the turret at the top of the house move what causes this to move?

I just received my LE and have had to spend some time setting it up. The screws from the top of the house were completely missing, trunk was loose and balls were flying off, opto at top of ramp was not aligned properly and was getting registered hits from it anytime the Playfield vibrated even a little, ramp to house was stuck up for a while so fiddled under the pf and now is working. I wish I could report I’m having fun playing but I’m still tweaking everything I guess this is the future of PINBALL.
I also received my MBRLE last week and haven’t even lifted the hood yet. I am hoping not to have any more trouble with ELVIRA!

The ball will auto-launch if a playfield switch is activated. Go into switch tests and see which switch is registering.

Looks like an appropriate and very interactive topper!

Oh, Darkin Stormy is VERY interactive...our league rules are posted "cat hazard" - play through it. He likes to walk/run across the glass.

#968 8 months ago
Quoted from Lermods:

These premiums are taking a very long time to get out.

I was wondering if this was due to the clear coat issues being caused by inadequate cure time? Maybe they're taking their time for this reason even though they are putting it on thinner now, so I hear.

Awesome topper LOL! My cat was sitting up there once and I set a high score and the (real) knocker scared the shit out of him and he freaked out and jumped down.
BTW, black cats seem to have the best personalities from my life long cat ownership experiences.
They get a bad rap IMO.

Hi. Just got my LE nr 40 (and I became 40 this year haha)
Just one question. Is this picture of the old house not included?
Or does anyone know where I can download it, or where I can download custom instruction cards,
to replace the ugly yellow one one the right?

Quoted from Diospinball:

My playfield is dimpled to all hell.
My only hope is they'll all dimple so much so it'll become level again.
I might lower the vuk... But, it seems lately its 2/3 of the vuk shots lead to draining. And really not from my mistake. It either dribbles straight to the tthe left outlane... Not a bullet shot, but a dribble that is still powerful enough to where you can't nudge it to save it.
Or I get a bullet shot and it hits the rubber in a weird way on the left side and it bounces straight into the right outlane. THis might be savable... If I nudge just at the right time. But, its hard to get the feel for when you need to start shaking, and because the vuk is so inconsistent in its behavior you risk doing the wrong shake...
I like the vuk... But, I think there needs to be a ball save timer that goes with it.

Please post a few playfield pics. I plan to complete the trilogy by adding EHOH to my collection later this year but am torn as to adding a playfield protector which many pinsiders seem to hate or worst case buying a machine and sending it to HEP to have Chris reclear the playfield.

Here’s an image of the house you can print and trim down for the apron card. Thanks to mozach for providing the image.

How much are people actually paying for the premiums? List is around $7900...……...

#978 8 months ago

Here in Belgium it's a lot more... Taxes, transport.

Black cats (or house panthers as I refer to them) are great...In Britain and Japan they are considered good luck.

SO has there been a Pro vs. Premium consensus as yet? I'm really interested in this game down the road

#983 8 months ago
Quoted from Rdoyle1978:

There is no Pro.

Premium, LE and SE all have the same playfield and game play.

#984 8 months ago

I saw the control gate in the right loop never goes up with software 0,87.
It works in test, but I never see it go up in in the game.
Is that normal with software 0,87? At what times in game should it go up?
Also, I can not make the super secret skill shot if that control gate doesn't go up.
EDIT: I found it. The switch at the bottom of shooter lane was not working and causing this.

I have no issues with a full plunge on the current code. The gate is open. I believe it is only open for the Back Door Unskilled Shot.

My orbit gate only opens for backdoor skillshot. Hope they change it during gameplay so I can rip some orbits around....

is the shaker motor not yet programmed into the code? i see the setting option for it, and have it installed, but it never activates.

I think it activated during gargoyle mode for me once or twice.

thanks. but mine doesn't fire at all. and i know for certain the shaker works, i pulled it from another Spike 2 game.

#995 8 months ago

I’m pretty sure there is another bug in the code besides the trunk. I can’t seem to replicate it reliably, but it happens often in 4 player games.

Basically The deadhead crypt will get into a position where the skull is up, but there is no deadhead active. From that point forward you can hit it all you want, each time it registers with an audio clip, but it will never rotate back to a start position. Once this happens, it stays like this across all 4 players.

Has anyone else seen this?

#996 8 months ago

I have seen this in a one player game, not sure what caused it.

#997 8 months ago

I am really trying to enjoy this game, but.... the old movie clips are more dreary than fun. The animations are great, but rare compared to shitty 50 year old black and white movie clips and stills. I feel like there is a fun game hidden in there, but right now I don’t get it. I think I have heard, “they’re coming for you Barbara” about 300 times (day 4 of ownership). Am I missing something?

Nope. Looks like you need to sell your game. I’ll meet you halfway. I’m off work all of December, let’s schedule a date for pickup.
