Uuugggghhhh!!! For the second time I nearly finished this thing. All modes complete except StayPuft, and it was lit. Brought down slimer and chased him away to get the last mode ready and then drained. Didn't even get a single shot at starting it!! One of these days, I'll get it.

I got to Stay Puft last night and managed to drain both the extra balls I had saved up!

I think Stay Puft is one of the best modes in all of pinball!

Quoted from Who-Dey:

Funny - I got to it last night for the first time as well, made 1 shot and drained...lol

What does game progress to after stay puft? I think I may have only had we got one completed on left ramp.

#5956 3 months ago
Quoted from Who-Dey:

I agree. It's a blast to play, and if you can bring playfield multipliers into it along with hitting the Gozer X a couple of times before starting it, the points can be crazy for a single mode.

Quoted from Psw757:

What does game progress to after stay puft?

Just like finishing any of the other ladders, WCWS mini-wizard mode will light at the left ramp. That's why I like trying to start with the Librarian ladder. It only takes two modes to get a mini-wizard. Then you can do it again by completing the WGO ladder with three modes. Putting off StayPuft isn't the best strategy for points, but I'm trying to complete the game. With 8 out of 9 modes completed, my score was less than 2B, because I hadn't activated any multipliers throughout the entire game.

We Came We Saw is lit again.

I had the strangest Storage Facility I’ve ever seen last night. After having hosed up the skill shot I went for lighting locks on the left. Got into that with no modes going (and less than 20mil, I think ball 2) and just kept aiming for the captive ball to light multipliers. It was also going in the left scoop which triggered at least one add-a-ball. I got a few ball saves, but have no idea where from. Built up to loopin supers by the end of it and collected one for ok’ish points. Looked up and was over 600 mil. I have no idea what happened. I won that round.

Drove 6 hours but 1000% worth it

HUO - Color LCD dmd / shaker / mirror blades

I don't understand why someone would deck their machine out with add ons like shaker motor, color dmd, mirror blades... but only get the pro model?

No idea but totally happy with it

For a Pro GB has all a lot going on

#5961 3 months ago

Congratulations. I love playing GB. It will definitely make you a better player.

Some people like pro models better than premiums, or maybe they got the pro because they couldn't afford the premium. There is nothing wrong with pro models. I have a mixture of pros and premiums both and im happy with my pro's and dont regret buying them one bit. Theres no shame in having a Stern pro what so ever.

I would have to agree with this. I played both the pro and premium of GB and got the pro because I liked the way it played better.

Thank you !!

I feel I’ll enjoy

The seller was iffy as possible code update would be a game changer

#5965 3 months ago

I like the pro better!

#5966 3 months ago
Quoted from freddy:

I like the pro better!

I like the Premium better so there!

I would gladly and proudly own either version though. GB is a great game and lots of fun. I recommend moving the outposts in though and closing up the gap on the outlanes. It makes the game a little less brutal and a lot more fun.

I love my premium. I love the randomness of the magna slings

Have you reversed the sling rubbers yet? If not do that and they become more active. Just switch positions of the sling rubber and the post rubber and for whatever reason they become much more active.

Did that first day out of the box. Thanks for the tip though

i reviewed previous posts...........mine need to be changed..........i will correct later today...........thanks

#5974 3 months ago

Ive had both. Currently I have a LE. I feel between the pro and the premium they are 2 different games. Games play may seem similar but so different. I got the pro first because thats all I could afford and over the 2 years I had it I added, shaker motor, walking stay puff, side blades, Sparky TV, a few action figures, custom storage facility, premium library and topper. The game was decked out. I only sold it to upgrade to the LE because a friend was selling his. I removed my color LCD and firehouse mod and put it in my LE. I made someone a sweet deal on my pro and sold it quick. It was their second pin and they were sooo happy to get my game. Anyways, my point being, I was figuring on my Pro being a forever game, thats why I went all out. But...so glad I picked up my Slimer LE.

Sweet. Where did you get the Library and the Storage Facility that you had on your Pro?

Marco on the Library and the Storage Facility I made. It come in the Walter Peck action figure. Then modded it for the lights and size

#5977 3 months ago

There is a Walter Peck action figure? That's actually kind of awesome.

Looked it up, and I see what you did there. I'll need to keep an eye out for one of those.

Because every game is better with ColorDMD.

Seeking a GB topper

Anyone still offer them ?

Message me

Thank you

#5982 3 months ago

Would like to post an April fools joke about new Ghostbusters code being released today but I don't think I can even joke about that anymore lol.

#5983 3 months ago

The real gag would be if it dropped today because no-one would believe it.

#5984 3 months ago

Biased crowd here, but close to snapping one of these up as my only pin. I'm an average player. How frustrating will this pin be with the stock flippers and no center post?

Also, is there any realistic chance of code actually being finished?

If you are an average player it wont be that bad but the good thing about it is, GB will make you a better pinball player because if forces you to make good shots. If you brick shots on GB its drain city. I love mine though and i wouldn't sell it for nothing.

it's a fun game for a average player, there are mods for longer flipper bats and centre post if you really want them

yes the code will come but even so the game is pretty good fun for the average to good player

Dead bounce out of the left scoop and right saucer, get the main shot dialed in and you'll have fun. The right ramp is still tough for me to hit...

Setup is key. I've played on location and it was BRUTAL. I bought a HUO and don't know what changes, if any, were made by the former owner. But, I made a couple of tweeks, like adding a piece of foam to the left (library) scoop, etc. and I think it plays pretty well. Sure, there are some tough game, but overall I think it is reasonable.

It's your game so you can set it up how you like, but I wouldn't add a center post and/or longer flippers as I want to play the game (at least mostly) as the designers intended.

Chance of code being finished.. I'd say there is a chance. Probably a small one. If we don't have an update by June, I'm going see about staring with a letter and see how that goes.

Good call, Lamprey. I'm with you, and I'd also write a letter - perhaps the GB-owning community could unite in flooding Stern with requests to actually finish the expensive game we paid for!

#5993 3 months ago

Stern of the Union ...update “ remains on our schedule”. Gimme a break.

I have contacted them many times, and they don't care. Most i've gotten is "its on the schedule".

You should have asked what is the “schedule” ... and then asked is it really on a schedule or just a future to-do list!

I think its Panzers fault. He has complained so much that they are now just delaying it intentionally just to piss him off.

I would assume Dwight isn't doing much with GB until Munsters is at least up to 1.0 code.

Exactly. Original lip service said it was going to be worked on as soon as Star Wars reached 1.0
So by now Ghostbusters should have some of the best code in the industry. lol.

I would because I want to play a game that is fun and not frustrating as do all of my non pinball friends.
