wait, what ??

#4252 6 months ago

its another attempt to make the VUK perfect....percentage went up for sure but still not perfect.

#4253 6 months ago

I recently took delivery of a Signature Elvira. Good game but I've had heaps of issues with the machine. I think I'm down to the last issue which is the ball constantly flying off the left ramp. The trunk lid seems really poorly made and is really loose. I can't seem to find a way to tighten it as when the ball hits it, it comes flying off. I've ordered some plastic to cover the ramp but that's a few weeks out. Any tips on what I can do please?

welcome to the club, any way we can get a pic of your signature card?

trunk has screws behind it, should tighten right up and have no issues.

If the upper portion of the ramp before the trunk is a little lower than the trunk lid then it will cause air balls. It was enough of a problem that pinball life made a little spacer to raise the ramp to prevent it. You could also use washers to get the same result.

Anyone have an issue with the Crypt Kicker not shooting the ball out randomly? It will try but it just won't make it out, or it will, but it will just dribble straight down the middle. I guess I can try increasing the coil strength, but it doesn't always do it.

edit: Is this what post #2518 fixes?

VUK issue is well known. Check post 4107 for location of moving your VUK and check out hurryup pinballs YouTube page for how to grind down the VUK plunger for a more consistent shot.

#4260 5 months ago

given all the vuk issues, how come no one has made a funnel that fits between the subway and the plunger to centre the ball? thought one of the 3d printer mod guys would be on this.

The Stern "fix" worked PERFECT for me. It is terrifying to some drilling holes in your playfield which I understand. Check out post 3199 by rob_g . In this post he shows how to move the vuk temporarily without drilling so you can test the vuk to make sure the new location will work consistently.

If you proceed with drilling the new holes get something like this if you dont already have it https://www.homedepot.com/p/General-Tools-Drill-Stop-Set-7-Piece-S838/100176201 .

Its a MUST to ensure you dont drill all the way through your playfield, haha. Either way, yeah the vuk is an issue for countless people, but it is fixable.

#4262 5 months ago

Anyone know where to buy red plastic protectors for the game? Mezelmods seems to be sold out .

Gargoyle flew off his pogo stick tonight. Guess I gotta jam this thing up his ass again.

happened to me too - doesnt seem attached in any way. Did you secure it somehow?

I used some contact cement I had laying around. Any type of glue or adhesive should work, though.

What size bit are you guys using to drill the new holes?

Thanks

#4266 5 months ago

Just use one smaller than the screw shaft (not thread) diameter.

Get a SWAG measurement of the screw plus plate then put a piece of masking tape on your drill bit to make sure it doesn't go too far. Or do what a lot of guys do and just screw it straight in without pilot holes.

i used a little glue - seems to be holding for now

#4268 5 months ago
Quoted from xbmanx:

I eventually had to use heavy duty plastic glue to keep one of mine together; I couldn’t tell if he came from the factory with any glue or if it’s just held in by friction, but he would fly off every 3rd hit until I tried some really strong glue.

You can also test it this way:
https://pinside.com/pinball/forum/topic/elvira-s-house-of-horrors-the-owner-s-club/page/75#post-5706730

This "temporary" fix was done back in January in an on location machine and has been working great as the ball hits the bank targets 100% of the time. You will also want to reduce power to the VUK from 255 to somewhere around 160 - 180 to get some variation on which bank target the ball hits.

Does the action button do anything besides wheel of fate and finishing off deadheads?

Also, do the junk items in the trunk do anything. I thought I read at some point they help with some modes. I'm not seeing visual cues indicating this, but I could certainly be missing them as I play.

The dagger and ray gun items eventually are supposed to have some sort of powers

The ray gun works now. The action button will flash the color of shot you can collect with it.

Skeleton key: unlocks the far right window of the house to start Santa Claus vs. The Martians, The Giant Gila Monster, and The Satanic Rites of Dracula modes

Lab Test: increases jackpots in multiball modes

Atomic Raygun:(using the action button) can count as a hit on deadheads, score a jackpot during multiball, complete a shot during a mode, some things you can turn on and off in the settings

Dagger: as far as I know doesn't do anything yet

behind the left loop.
- Added a way to save and cancel changes to the score color in the main
UI (via the color editor). Added a way to restore the colors to the
default (factory) Implemented exit dialog with EXIT/SAVE+EXIT/CANCEL.
- Update player score colors after they are edited instead of only at
power-up or at the start of a new ball. This allows the colors to be
edited in the middle of a game.

- Shaved some time off of the attack combo timer for THE WEREWOLF OF
WASHINGTON. Increased the scores for the attack combos.
- Changed initials and names for some HSTD.

V0.97.0 - Jun. 25, 2020
=======================

- Improved the presentation of the lamps during TRUNK MULTIBALL. Mask
off left 3-bank, jackpot, RGB arrow and junk in the trunk lights during
big light effects.
- Implemented the RAY GUN for UN HAPPY HOUR and DRIVE ME CRAZY, these
were not implemented.
- Fixed a problem where TRAILER TRASH would award the full value instead
of the hurry-up (counted down) value.

for the scores in the main UI (foreground and background).
(From the main diagnostics menu, navigate to UTIL -> GAME -> RGB and
edit the colors using the utility.)
- Cleaned up MATCH displays; eliminate dark shadows and improve lighting
behind the house windows.
- Implemented the FLASK (junk item); this increases the values for
anything that uses the JACKPOT lights and/or the JACKPOT display effect:
WILD WOMEN MULTIBALL
ADD-A-ZOMBIE MULTIBALL
ATTIC ATTACK MULTIBALL
TRUNK MULTIBALL
PHONE-A-FIEND
HOUSE PARTY
GAPPA ANGRY
DRIVE ME CRAZY
MAKE-OUT MAYHEM
SCREAM TEST
RUN FOR YOUR LIFE
GAPPA ANGRY MULTIBALL
- Added Elvira pop-ups for DIRECTOR'S CUT (that's a wrap) and (cut cut cut).
- The ENTER INITIALS display for HSTD was not rendering the right-most
character in the input alphabet when the user pressed the right flipper
button to scroll the characters to the left. This has been corrected.
- Sync thunder sounds with main-play display thunder/lightning when
the ball is in the shooter lane and the main-play display (house, for
sale sign with pumpkin) is running.
- Resequenced the HAUNT completion so the Elvira outro is sequenced first,
followed by the B-RESTORATOR level (which may light EXTRA BALL), followed
by TRAILER TRASH LIT.
- Added video clips and sounds for WILD WOMEN MULTIBALL total:
(Show parrot laughing/insulting if one shot or less. Show women behind
tree if the super jackpot is collected. Otherwise parrot squawking/women
in shrubs.)
- Edited down the video clips for DIRECTOR'S CUT (these were taking too
long). Moved the Elvira pop-ups for the level award (cut, print it) to
shortly after the start of the display effect (instead of the end).
- Elvira's 'cut print it' pop-up was being inhibited sometimes when
requested at the end of the level award during DIRECTOR'S CUT (and
sometimes it would not show up). It is now always requested and should
always show up.
- Hold up kickout of cellar lock during DRIECTOR'S CUT level award so
the player can see what is going on.
- Move the WILD WOMEN MULTIBALL SUPER JACKPOT shot around after each
shot is made so the player doesn't keep shooting the same SUPER JACKPOT
shot over and over.
- Added video clips from UNTAMED WOMEN (black & white) to the first part
of WILD WOMEN MULTIBALL. Moved video clips from THE WILD WOMEN OF WONGO
(color) to the last (super jackpot) part of WILD WOMEN MULTIBALL. (The
color clips from THE WILD WOMEN OF WONGO were the only clips used in the
previous version for all parts of the multiball.)
- Fixed an issue with the TRAILER TRASH hurry-up score where it would
count down and allow the player to collect a score that did not end in
a ZERO.
- Changed the score font in main UI that allows coloring of the outline.
- Fixed an issue in the main UI where the PLAYER UP message would flash
too quickly.
- Give out multiball jackpot awards from the CELLAR if the HOUSE ENTRANCE
RAMP is UP due to HAUNT taking priority.
- Implement THE DEAD RETURN ball save settings:
NONE
ADD TIME
MUTUALLY EXCLUSIVE
- THE DEAD RETURN ball save setting set to NONE for COMPETITION mode.
- Fixed the shaker motor effect for the spaceship hitting the ground
during the start of the TEENAGERS FROM OUTER SPACE mode (this is timed
much better).
- Adjusted the position and size of the timers during the ENTER INITIALS
display for HSTD so they do not overlap other elements.
- Added video clips/sounds for total pages: SCREAM TEST and RUN FOR YOUR
LIFE.
- Added new sounds for POOL PARTY (splashes).
- Added video clips/sounds for MANOS: THE HANDS OF FATE total.
- Fix up ENTER INITIALS display for HSTD (title area) so it does not
overlap other graphical elements (looks bad). Vertically align/center
the text.

Does it ruin the artwork or what?

They turn the artwork red. Not attractive.
They are a PITA to install.
One piece I removed because it changed the height of the ramp after the trunk causing air balls.

You're better off just getting a set for the slings/outlanes.

Look in the topic gallery for the pics.

#4283 5 months ago

Does anyone notice light coming through the top of the deadhead cellar where the 2 plastic pieces of the roof connect? I feel like i didn’t notice that prior to this week and im wondering if something shifted or if it was always like that.

#4284 5 months ago
Quoted from SKWilson:

True...colored plastic protectors need to be the "cut-out" versions otherwise they ruin the original plastic artwork by bleeding the color through.

Guess it’s a code thing then, before I start switch hunting

You can unscrew one half of the roof inner side might be best, run a strip of black tape down the center half on the mounted piece, now bring the other half over and mount the tape to that half then re screw the roof back down.

After the latest update I have definitely noticed random back door call outs...

#4290 5 months ago

Yes, the game definitely has a limited timer now upon plunge and certain modes where it will give you the back door bonus if you shoot the left orbit.

Here is the link to the ones I make for Elvira. Just the slings and return lanes. The red is dark so they are cut out for the light to shine through. They look great and I have never had an air ball of the left ramp. I have nothing but positive feedback for these as well as the others I make. Let me know if you have any questions. Thanks, Rob

They look great and I have never had an air ball of the left ramp. I have nothing but positive feedback for these as well as the others I make. Let me know if you have any questions. Thanks, Rob

Quoted from DeathHimself:

You can unscrew one half of the roof inner side might be best, run a strip of black tape down the center half on the mounted piece, now bring the other half over and mount the tape to that half then re screw the roof back down.

So is everyones like this?

Holy Gappa Angry balls!!

Just locked 5, had number 6 ready and ramp wouldn’t raise to go to cellar

Lyman f ing Sheets!

How great is this game. Just like BM66 and TWD he coded this pin into greatness.

Better than both and I didn’t think it was possible to beat TWD

Yep and we're still at 0.98. I have to say it might even top MET along with the fore mentioned, and all of those machines are awesome. This game is truly a gem.

LOL...yeah, I know...those are the ones I have...great product! I have the Blood version, they integrate well with the theme and appear factory. To be honest, I think any colored plastic protector is more about adding an additional splash of color vs actually protecting the plastic...which, I am all for. Nice job on your protectors!
