150 million on ball one the other night, so much fun. really diggin the new dead heads. Santa Haunt is so hilarious, when that window lights up I get butterflies in my stomach.

my game looks incredible with the new mods, and covering up the red lamps a bit makes it easier on my eyes so I can play longer. really liking how Elvira turned out, very excited for what's to come.

Elvira got all my twipy votes . Most people will say JP is the better game but if you break it down section by section , art package , theme integration , callouts , light show , rules, ect Elvira wins . Congratulations to all you lucky bastards that have one .

After putting mirror blades on my GotG and ST, I will put them on everything. Had the LE not come with art blades, I would've put in mirrors.

Sten's JP got a few of my votes. But, most went to Elvira for me. I'll tell you why. The backglass for Elvira is one of the best backglasses ever. True I'm not 100% jazzed on how they drew the mistress on the backglass, but the rest of it. The energy and framing of the image. How it incorporates all the important elements from the game into the backglass and the game is jammed pack. It took a lot of skill. Even the gargoyles that flying are in the backglass.

And I had to vote for Elvira's custom videos. As those are just to this date the most impressive feature ever in a pinball to date. Really makes it seem like we're watching her show.

But, I do think JP has better rules. As those rules are just amazing. Elivra's rules are not there yet. Maybe one day. But, the one thing I like about JP is the rules are deep, but simple, and easy to learn, and make sense. Just amazing rules.

I think best toy was a category. And I can't remember how I voted. Three amazing options for this year. Black Knight Toy, Elvira's House, and the T-rex head. I probably voted t-rex head, as I think that is the most amazing toy ever.
But, you really couldn't go wrong with either of those three. I mean any other year... Those could have been winners... But, also since Elvira's house isn't fully coded into the game yet... It doesn't spin for house party mode... So.. that is a bit of detraction.

Mirrors in everying for me...including Elvira. Not everyone puts them in, but I've never heard any complaints about them being in a machine.

#1609 6 months ago

What protectors would anyone recommended for a premium? Stern shooter lane, etc.

#1610 6 months ago

Mirrors it is

We used to put mirrors in everything until art blades came along. Now it is mirrors in old games and art blades in new Sterns.

Mirrors in my game...

New owner, happy.

Does anyone know if it's possible to have the roof of the mansion start with the Elvira face facing forward? Getting tired of the eyeball.

Also does the audio for the bat attic multi ball not play for anyone? The audio for Elvira--got it and she is very clearly going through a monologue but no audio.

No. With future code, the turret will rotate according to mode. The eyeball will light when Attic Party Multiball is ready.
No. There is not sound for either Attic Attack Multiball or Attic Party Multiball.

Yeah. You have inside info on the next release?

It's been one month since the last update which, I think, is the longest we've gone between updates since launch. I'm hoping the next update is amazing! I love it!

#1618 6 months ago

Also asking for basic troubleshooting. Have a buzzing noise coming from what I believe is the motherboard area behind the back glass.

After searching for some help, I found a thread on pinside for older stern machines saying it could be the sound board/connections to the speakers.

I'm not sure that's the case for me. I opened the back glass and checked cables were plugged in correctly and found that my untrained trouble shooting "workaround" is currently open and close the coin door. Doesn't always work but doing it multiple times will do the trick. The sound also generally goes away within a few minutes, whether I'm playing or not.

Any and all help appreciated.

#1619 6 months ago

New code would be cool after a month. More pleasure!

#1620 6 months ago

LOL...I had to explain to the league players last night about the importance of getting it in the back door on the first plunge. Most people laughed, but there are always one or two with pursed lips. I honestly don't know how they handle it when they have to play my Rob Zombie in league. :p

#1621 6 months ago

I cat make the backdoor skill shot is there a piece that some have added to correct this?

Thanks

That's right, but the kit is out of stock at Stern. I wait for it for 40 days.

The metal piece helps but isn’t required. If the right side rear is high the shot is impossible to make. You need to side to side level the game from the playfield. Get a digital level and place it on the playfield in front of the house. I bet your right side is high. Once corrected the shot is possible. This game is very picky when it come to the level and pitch.

Out of curiosity could it be the fan on the power supply you're hearing?

Completely agree. My right side was high and didn't hit it once in 50 games. Re-leveled and hit it twice in the next game.

Is this metal piece included on the later run games, like the premiums or is it hit or miss on having on the game?

I think that most of the premiums have it.

Really, how much does it cost.
I don't mind waiting. But, I'd like to get on the wait list or order it and wait... Never heard of that kit, and tired of never making that shot...
I'll try to level my game... But, I checked and its pretty dang level... But, Carpet... And it can shift.

#1629 6 months ago

It might be. If it is do I need to do something to tend to it/fix it?

No there is a thread about changing over the fan to a quieter one if this bothers you.

My machine has a buzz. It sounds like something vibrating near right flipper button area. ??

I think mine is a little tighter than yours, but I believe someone (posted way earlier in the thread) contacted Stern and was told that's pretty much just the way it is. Honestly, although I thought it odd at first, it doesn't really bother me. The thing works.

Are the gargoyle movement and scoring not fired from the same switch? I'm having a gargoyle fire but not score or light the letter.

#1638 6 months ago
Quoted from Chalkey:

the movement is a result of kinetic energy, not from the triggering of a coil. You may just need to adjust the switch (which controls the scoring and insert light) that sits behind the gargoyle target

#1639 6 months ago

Just saw that. Man takes a lot of force to get that switch leaf moved back! Had to set it super close.

Next up... my ramp has the right spacer and is still lifting the gargoyle

Quoted from turbo2nr:

My sound comes directly from behind the back glass. Was going and I was able to hold my ear near the area to ID specifically where it came from.

If that's just how the fan is, no issue. Not like I care much if I just turn the volume up a little.

#1641 6 months ago

How is double trouble currently qualified? Didn't see it in the rule sheet.

How do you activate the dead hand ball save? The video is a zombie arm coming up from a grave in front of a tombstone to catch a ball.

Quoted from benjoewoo:

I thought I had "The Dead Return" figured out, but it's lighting at times I don't expect. I still think it has something to do with one of the three-banks, but am not sure. Has anyone come up with a definitive answer?

#1645 6 months ago

Think it activates after banishing a Dead head.

#1646 6 months ago
Quoted from Sethman:

Think it activates after banishing a Dead head.

That is a distinct possibility. I know I've had it light without completing the three-banks. Ever since the extra ball for vanquishing two Dead Heads got added, I have been going for the first right away. I bet you're right!

#1647 6 months ago

maybe found a small bug. I had the return insert lit on the right outlane, went into junk in the trunk mb with the ball save between the flippers flashing, ball goes into the right outlane and the ball return insert light in the right outlane goes out so I basically lost that ball return. I would think you should keep that ball return when the ball save light between the flippers is flashing.

I don't think they're close to done coding that yet.
It goes dead after the ball ends even if its not used. During the mb ball save it gets used up. And I would think or hope that the reward for a vanquish will eventually carry over after the ball ends.

No reason for it to disappear, you worked hard for it, should be punished by a SDTM. Also the same thing is true for hand of fate. I don't think a ball end should wipe these rewards out. Keep them lit until claimed. It makes hand of fate a bit harder to claim.

At least that's how I would prefer it. Or maybe for tournament players or directors put it in the settings for them to change or alter if a ball drain kills them.
That would be fair.

You can change the settings to allow The Hand of Fate, The Dead Return and Double Trouble to carry over from ball to ball. I believe it was in the last update.

I submitted that as a bug prior to the last release. Hopefully it will make it into the next release. The Dead Return should not be used when the ball save is active.

Defeat a Dead Head and it will light.
