Quoted from Mike_M:

I added a Pinduino controlled RGB strip to the SuperCharger ramp.

Is there a how-to that describes how I can "copy" that? Would love to!!!

#7153 1 year ago
Quoted from Mike_M:

I got a rough video of my Pinduino controlled supercharger ramp LEDs uploaded:
» YouTube video
The ramp lights are still in attract mode when the game first starts. Watch for the shot up the supercharger ramp for the red "chase" effect.

Well done. I love the chasers!

With 80 games this is your first HS2.

Quoted from snyper2099:

ODD DOUBLE VIDEO MODE BUG.

SOLVED: Double Video Mode

I played a double video mode again the other day and now understand why. It was not a glitch.

Tournament Mode has deterministic "Burn Rubber" awards. If you have collected 3 burn rubber awards and have burn rubber lit for a 4th while having video mode lit (3rd Gear), you will be awarded back-to-back video mode when you collect. Burn Rubber and 3rd Gear!

New playfield slides work great. What an amazing difference from the old ones.

absolutely. Can't believe I waited so long to fix that issue.

#7165 1 year ago

Agreed. Much better, but it’s one of those purchases I hate to make. Doesn’t make it look or play any better. No visual value.

#7166 1 year ago

Pretty nice looking Getaway just hit the open market (located in KY): https://pinside.com/pinball/forum/topic/for-sale-getaway-high-speed-ii-2

#7167 1 year ago

Since I received an action camera for Christmas, I thought I would take some new videos of game play with various PinSound mixes. Setup is PinSound with upgraded stereo speakers and bass. The sound from the action camera is somewhat limited, but it gives a good idea of what the orchestrations are like (sound is significantly better in real life). Also, entire purpose of these videos was to demonstrate PinSound, so no snarky remarks about my gameplay!

Standard Orchestration:

ZZ Top Orchestration:

ZZ Top Techno Orchestration:

U2 Orchestration:

Mixed Artist "I Can't Drive 55" Orchestration:

Yeah, the mold was made from the original prototype, they offered it painted and unpainted... at one point, not too long ago, I thought I saw a thread where they said they could make another run but I guess it never went anywhere.

Congrats! Mezel mods has a few toys, read through this forum and you will see a lot of good homemade add-ones, and I think you will find that most go with L2 ROM and many with L5 (there are posts here explaining the difference).

Put in some new waxed balls, waxed the play field, and changed the batteries. Plays much faster now. #ihaveshinyballs

Does anybody have any side-by-side comparison photos of the CPR Getaway backglass? I’d like to see how the colors look vs the original.

Search the thread for “CPR” (if you haven’t already) and you will see some clear examples and honest feedback.

#7184 1 year ago

I really like the look of the Back Glass, some people did not like the low res but I think it looks great!

The last one is with the light up panel. too bad I can't get my machine to fire up, not sure what's going on....

I’m trying to maximize my gameplay. At one of the pinball league nights I’m in, they have a Getaway. Trying to dominate it during league play. What do you all think about activating Secret Mania? Is it worth it?

Yo dudes, I just pulled one out of a barn in Alabama. Dead rat and everything. Its a DP though and operates with a few issues.

I was wondering if anyone had a line on a mezelmods mountain. I can only find them from overseas...

Absolutely.not. What is worth it is taking advantage of free ride to step through the gears faster (along with opportunity for more points), also 5th gear only and hang to the left for video mode. How many balls and what kind of scores are you talking about?

Are you talking about letting the ball drain on purpose to help get through the tach/gears more quickly? If so, I'd say no, never... especially in a tournament/league setting.

Quoted from tiltmonster:

All the pins in league play are set to 3 balls. 1 extra ball is allowed. If any more extra balls are earned, you have to plunge and drain them. We are playing using IFPA rules, with the finals counted toward your IFPA standings. We play 5 different pins each night. We have 7 league nights, one every two weeks, with the best 5 nights counting. We play in groups of 3 or 4 against each other for points.

I have been purposely draining to advance gears, timing the ball save time. Works to get through the gears quicker, trying to activate each feature along the way; video mode, supercharger, red line mania. I find my highest scores come that way vs. never using the ball save.

I think never using this strategy may be strong if you know the game well.

When 2 balls are locked it can take a long time to register the drain with the trough empty. Avoiding it in this situation seems like good advice. In a multi-player game that will be more frequent. On L-2 and L-5 code, if it is allowed and 2 balls are not locked I feel like it is pretty safe. If you don't know the code or know it is L-1, I would consider avoiding it.

Standard generous free ride time ......................N Y Y

tiltmonster is your concern about the danger of not getting a relaunch or that it shouldn't be allowed? It doesn't seem particularly fair when registering the drain timing changes depending on how many balls are in the trough, but on the other hand it does reward a player with more detailed game knowledge.

This is all in an effort to get a better score, since I suck at playing. Yes, I would be careful to see how it is timed before attempting it in league play. On mine, I can get 3 purposed drains most of the time before it goes out. After Red Line Mania, and a 2nd round of gears, the time is shorter. I'm using L-5.

#7197 1 year ago
Quoted from tiltmonster:

Yes, and I've watched tournament play videos where this feature was enabled and players used it to the fullest (it can be risky depending upon timing). Hey, I'm never to proud to take advantage of any loopholes. If it is a "rule" then I'm sure there is a way to disable the feature. Also, as others have stated, the situation may dictate when to try this or not. With one or two balls locked, you can sometimes get 3 drains in lower gears and 2 in higher. With 2 balls locked, I've had drains with the light still flashing for what seemed like 2-3 seconds and I ended up losing the ball (which is why I never drain in this situation).

What also helps scoring it taking advantage of the supercharger whenever possible (i.e. make the shot instead of messing around). Nothing like up to a cool 10M throughout the game to boost scores. Finally, practice multi-ball and getting to the super jackpot as this can add up to 100M per SJ. Once you understand what is required, it is not too terribly difficult with any luck keeping at least 2 balls alive.

#7198 1 year ago

FYI, did some quick searching and here is a YouTube of the IFPA 7 World Pinball Championship on the Getaway in 2010. Play close attention starting at 1:05 and then at 13:12 and you will see purposeful center ball drains by both players to take advantage of the Free Ride (probably in other spots too, these are just two times I saw it skimming through the video).

Bottom line, I think it is fine. Bush league? Maybe. Within the rules? Definately. Do you have to use this to get high scores? Of course not. Hey, I respect how anyone wants to play as long as it is within the rules. Heck, I might even learn something watching them. If you care about what others think or their impression of you (typically, not an issue with me), then maybe this is not your move. If you want to be competitive as can be and win within the rules presented (quite typical of me), then you should perfect this move. What I bet happens if you begin to use this strategy is that others start copying you!

Perhaps you're right but I'm not a fan of intentionally draining to get more spots on the rpm. I know it's within the "rules" and maybe it's just me but it's painful to watch someone draining the ball 2-3x in a row before they start to play the game.

Well then, if you and I ever go head-to-head at a game of Getaway we'll just have to be sure to agree upon the rules before pressing the start button (or turning the key if we're playing mine).

Also, bet if you were pumping quarters in it at an arcade you might reconsider.

BTW, been meaning to ask you about your Avatar. Were you / are you into BMX (assumption on my part based on the bike, as I know nothing about the sport), a fond childhood memory, or just a cool bike that you like?
