Quoted from PeterG:

Now I need to get a colorDMD, this is one expensive upgrade from Stern.

I installed one about a week ago. It is beyond amazing. I can't explain how much more you get out of the game. Although it cut my scores in half since I got it because I'm looking up too much.

I've already got one in the mail! Haha

#7103 30 days ago

Unlike some games that I think don't really make a big diff with color (looking at you tron) - this one is HUGE. So much better in color. Similar to JP DE - another title that really looks so much better.

If they are yellow I’ll pass!

Yes Tron is a bit blue, the lightcycle animations are great. Just once you go ColorDMD, you have to do them all. So I have GB, Baywatch and T2 left to do, I am saving up for that, or have to sell a kidney GB will be the first to go color.

#7106 29 days ago

Who has time to look at the display?

#7107 29 days ago

Player Two.

#7108 29 days ago

Does anyone know the specs / price for the initial DMD screen included with Ghostbusters Premium?

I just replaced mine with a LED ColorDMD and now I'm looking to sell the original one, but can't find too many details about it.

Thanks for any help anyone can give! G

#7109 29 days ago

used DMD's usually go for $100

#7110 29 days ago
Quoted from lpeters82:

It was mentioned when they were showing off the library changes. Jack was getting ready to plug his ears and Dwight mentioned to him that the screem was turned off but still in the game.

Wish they added a volume setting for this. I love the feature but its just wayyy too loud, so i have it turned off.

#7111 29 days ago

I would have also taken a timer. I sometimes play after my wife and kids go to bed. The librarian scream is a no go once they are sleeping.

Quoted from lpeters82:

Exactly my problem! I got the scare scream from my wife the last time the game scream came on at 12am lol.

#7113 29 days ago

I usually would keep the scream turned on for parties as it was always a good laugh when it would happen. Sometimes I would forget to disable it. A couple years ago, my nephew who was 3 at the time was checking out my GB when the scream went off. He is permanently scarred of ever going in my basement again!

I remember as well a while back my wife and I went to a quiet restaurant on an early Saturday afternoon to get some lunch. The only other patrons in the place were 2 little old ladies. The restaurant had a room of pinball machines, and the Ghostbusters did not have the scream turned off. Well you should have seen these old ladies faces when that scream fired off... they looked horrified like they had just witnessed a murder. They gave me a nasty look as I came out of the game room, like I was the reason some woman screamed at the top of her lungs. Good times with the Fright mode!

They should make are you a god a mini game where you can just start there like they did on the stream. Its would be fun to have 4 players and see if we can beat the game

I did ask Dwight this a few days ago and he said they are considering but not in the code release this week.

I suggested possibly holding in the right flipper button while pushing the start button to activate this mode. In could make a very good Head to Head comp mode and agree it looked like alot of fun.

Quoted from BowlingJim:

Extra ball animation, beginning of modes, etc. There's plenty of time to enjoy the color display. It's a great one to update, much like Game of Thrones, which is a totally different display once you can tell what's happening.

Quoted from sethi_i:

I can't wait to play it. For what it's worth, here's my $.02.
There were several things that made me cringe a little during the stream (mostly Jack's "gloves"!).

Yeah, those madonna circa 1983/4 gloves were off-putting.

#7122 29 days ago
Quoted from vireland:

Don't get me wrong, I've met jack a handful of times and he's a great person, but when I saw one hand pop into frame, I almost thought he was a burn victim with those mesh bandages and he wasn't able to play.

When I realized they were gloves, I just couldn't stop staring

Was just watching the stream and came in here to say the exact same thing. A lot of the debugging/programmer adjustments they were playing with to explore different facets of the game would be incredible to have access to and would be a ton of fun for alternate objective games/tournaments. I feel like this is probably true with a lot of modern games, but never really understood the potential until watching this stream.

#7125 28 days ago
Quoted from Prodoshi:

Yes, Gary is taking a few weeks off to hit the road and hand-deliver to each of us some awesome, updated cards with all the new rules! The customer service just never stops!

#7126 28 days ago
Quoted from embryon:

For sure Spider-Man, GOT and others were totally different and vastly improved once they each got color DMDs. I installed a color DMD in my SM as a condition of my sale when I let it go. I was so impressed with the improved videos, I had a hard time letting it go. I still miss that game. I have a CSI, and that game just got color DMD, which made a huge difference in what images you can see and understand. Shrek has fantastic color DMD animations too.

#7127 28 days ago

Canadian maybe... $60-$80 USD if you can find a buyer.

#7130 28 days ago

Just having some last games before the new code,
and re-noticed that if you hold the left flipper button before you start it says Competition Mode Ready Press Start Now.
Watching the amazing video I saw the new code will have fast restart by holding left flipper/start for three seconds?
Won't this conflict with choosing Competition Mode(whatever that is)?.

#7131 27 days ago

On the stream Dwight mentioned there's adjustments to change some settings back to the way they were pre update. I'm hoping there's an adjustment for not letting ladder modes be marked complete if they are not completed. I'm sure that's one of the adjustment in there. Would be nice to combine that setting with not letting modes auto start after one is completed. I want getting to "We Came We Saw" to represent a really good game, and then getting to "We're Ready to Believe You" and "Are you a God" to be that game of a lifetime.

#7132 27 days ago

Has anyone ever attempted to reverse engineer the topper communication? Would be great if we could build our own, since the original ones aren't available anymore.

#7133 27 days ago

We were playing the other night and saw an animation we hadn't seen before. It was slimer with green steaks flying by like a Starwars animation. Looked very cool and if I hadn't seen it now I woulda sworn it was part of the new code. Two years and we hadn't seen it and I have no idea how to make it happen.

#7134 27 days ago

#7135 27 days ago

Am i the only one who thinks that the GB topper looks like a toy?
The plastics surrounding the blue lights should be transparent to look real.
Did they try to diffuse the harsh lights to be less distractive? A real blue light would be cool!

Of all the changes in the stream, the immediate mode completion worries me the most. I understand why they are doing it, but I'm not sure I'm going to like it better. I really hope they include this as a setting.

The floors are a mix of league nights and moving stuff around. Tweaking lineups, getting games closer or sliding on an angle to do minor repairs/mods that require me beside the machine.

I'm not that brutal when I play.

I like the topper. It is a little plasticy looking and did seem overpriced but I still like it. I think they look better in person than in pictures but it all comes down to personal preference. GB was my number one dream theme so the topper was a no-brainer for me based on that. As far as the blue plastic over the lights, that's what they looked like on the movie car too.

Hi all! Having some trouble with my new-to-me GB Pro(First pin). Has anyone else had issues with the Left Ramp Diverter not working? When I do a coil test it doesn't do anything at all. I've read that there is a screw that needs to be tightened according to this post:

https://pinside.com/pinball/forum/topic/whats-up-with-the-ghostbusters-ramp-diverter

but I'm having trouble finding it.

When I do find it, and if it still doesn't fix the problem, would I change out the minicoil? Or something else? Any help would be awesome, given I've been a pinball owner for a whole 2 weeks lol! Thanks!

I know what you mean. I've drained immediately after starting a mode sometimes. I would have preferred that they autocomplete after you hit at least one ramp. Then, when you drain, it gives you a cutscene that ends the mode so you can actually appreciate it, and then you can start the next scene with the new ball. I feel like things will get missed this way. But I'm happy to see how it all comes together, and I'm sure it will be an improvement overall.

Caution when testing the gate too much, the coil gets very hot easily.
The coil works as a magnet, if its not pulling the gate you can try decrease the distance with the screw.
In the image you can see how i adjusted it. it stands out a littlebit into the ramp, but not too much.
Just so that it wont influence the path off the ball too much, but enough to make the magnet work.
To help that, i overstretched the spring a tiny bit (caution).

Competition mode is enabled prior to pressing start. The new “abort to attract” only works after a game is started. There shouldn’t be any conflict.
