Quoted from pinden007:

've done what you said about speeding up the process - after you read the list you can hit both flipper buttons to immediately get the rewards and have the ball kicked out.

What code you running? I feel like the past few times I've tried this on new code it hasn't worked.

Quoted from pinden007:

Nope. It's definitely 3 separate unique random lists.

This is different. Try it. As soon as the list appears, hit both flipper buttons- don't wait more than a split second. I usually try to read the first 2 items in the list and kill it if I don't see extra ball.

I agree with you. I've seen that too, but wasn't sure what triggered it.

Now I know, thanks!

1.13

You gave to be quick. No time to read the entire list.

#2904 3 years ago

I am in with an LE. Really think Stern put it together on this one. Can anyone tell me if there is something missing on the post that I have pictured. The one below the ramp near the slimer. Thanks

I always decide before the list even shows. I've had times where I just monkey flip the whole time and it doesn't show me multiple lists. However, I feel this acted just like you described when I did it in older code.

I was wondering this same exact question. I saw the empty hex post on mine the other day, and thought "am I missing something?" or "is this left empty for a future mod or something?"

#2907 3 years ago
Quoted from jkashani:

I think it's just to block balls from getting stuck in the area behind it.

FWIW, the code Readme file doesn't mention any changes to Tobin's functionality. The only time it's mentioned is in regards to pop awards.

I'm hoping we can confirm this to work. EB's are cool, but another way to light those multipliers would be great.

Some 'research' with a couple cold ones is in order this weekend.

Welcome you guys. I love the fact that Ghostbusters seems to bring new people to the hobby. That's awesome

#2915 3 years ago

Just got a couple games in.

For the most part, didn't seem to be able to have any impact on Tobins. However, there was one instance where I did feel like the flipper did make the list react. Will definitely have to continue to pay attention.

Got to WARTB for the 3rd time.
Still extremely disappointing. It started with out much of any intro. That was strange, I thought the other times at least the start was interesting. One of my better games though. Was able to complete the left ladder a 2nd time and get WCWS going again. Didn't really notice if scores get any kind of bump, but it didn't seem like it.

Lastly, was fishing around in the menus. There is a timer setting for Are You A God MB. Pretty shitty that it probably won't make it into the game. I was ready to let them slide for putting it on the score card, but having it in menus has reignited my sadness.

The multipliers are one of the most difficult things in the game to get (aside from the skill shot). I play MANY games without even lighting the 2x multiplier, let alone 3x. I have only lit 2x from the left captive ball a few times, but NEVER 3x.

#2919 3 years ago

so I can confirm that when I removed the cliffy for the left bros, no more airs going up the left ramp. It def was the cliffy. FYI if you are having the same problem

note - I still get target air ocassional but I was getting air balls before they were reaching targets - now due to my cliffy.

#2924 3 years ago

Thanks Aquapin for coming up with that and sharing it. This was the only thing left that bothered me about the playfield. It makes such a big difference...love it!

I did a couple of things differently. I made sure to work in the back cover to hide all the wiring and glued the LED's inside because I didn't want screws to show on the front. Cutting the model and trimming was a bit of a PITA but it turned out great so I can't complain.

I had the same problem so I removed both of them. Made some adjustments with the target heights but no matter what I did, the game was just unplayable.

Do any of you doing the Storage mod have a video on how you did these?
They look awesome!!

#2928 3 years ago

I've only had my GB premium for about a week. it seems like once every other game the trough coil kicks out 2 balls. has anyone else had this issue?

#2929 3 years ago

Try reseating the cables first.

#2933 3 years ago

Basically cutting the bottom part off in line with the bottom of the door. There is trimming that will need to be done inside and drilling of the holes to accommodate the lights.

I also cut the width down maybe 1/4" and notched the side to allow the spot light to fit back in place.

#2934 3 years ago

just found out that ghostbusters is finally coming to stern arcade. i wonder if it will have the same bugs?

Try lowering the trough eject power, which will also save your shooter lane from getting chewed up.

Awesome! I like this way better than what's on the premium. But I'm guessing it wouldn't fit?

It just barely clears the glass where it is located on the Pro.

Quoted from Spelunk71:

You know, there may definitely be something to what you just said. When I first got my machine I put the trough eject power to the lowest setting which was 175 I think and I had zero problems at that setting. After I installed my cliffs I bumped that up a little and have had 2 balls eject out into the trough at the same time a few times. I'm gonna put mine back down on the lowest setting. My first thought would be no way to your answer but as soon as you said that I instantly was like wow that explains my problems with the 2 balls ejecting into the shooter lane! It doesn't really make sense but I think you're right.

#2939 3 years ago

I could be wrong, but I had two balls getting kicked out right after I first set it up. After lowering the eject power, it never happened again.

#2940 3 years ago

No I think you're right for sure. I can't explain it but I definitely think you're right.

than game is to easy for you, or the factory set-up is to easy !
not sure how is yours (moded with carrot flippers, and/or center post, or just nothing)
but what should be change is the time out mode (n° 50) and/or mode continue (n° 51)
(the n° 43 to pause the timer is not really a prob, just control the ball on a flipper (no matter right or left) and do an easy shoot, as the right lane, to activate the timer again, and so on...)

here home, to change our way of playing with my son, just go back to factory settings, and for sure its a nonsense :

ball 1 : going for the right ladder, WBTD started & played & finished normally... the last shoot in the right lane directly launch SPOOK CENTRAL, didnt finished it, than have to relight the ladder with the slimer... than start GOOZER, few shoots to make value bigger, and than i lose the ball

ball 2 : going for the right ladder as the skillshot, than i'm (already !!!) at the MARSHMALLOW... play it (its time to get some points lol), and as often its also when all is going to light quite in the same time : start STORAGE FACTORY, complete MM, start WCWS, start PKE, and finally start MASS HYSTERIA... from last time i've check points at 800M, i'm now at 4B...

ball 3 + 2 EB : just play as it (not gone to WARTBY)... with 3 skillshots, and even more some luck with a "+10%" of the score in the mystery, game ended with 8.9B

funny, but in fact not really
but of course evbd set-up the game how he feels/likes it and its a good thing to have these options available of course
all this said, enjoy GB !

Ok guys I did the trim as suggested

Quoted from RipleYYY:

Most definitely not. I think both of those options are ridiculous.

One of my main draws to the game was that it's challenging.

My out lane posts are in the top position. I haven't changed the mode completion setting though. Guess that's the next step.

#2944 3 years ago

A friend of mine is getting a premium next week.

What are the must fix issues?

The most important fixes in terms of making the game play correctly would be adding the airball deflector, changing out the hex post for the right ramp, and removing the mylar from the right orbit.

#2947 3 years ago

Went ahead and put on the carrot flipper bats. Also angled then up to be in line (instead of dropping).

I like it, not going to call it a total game changer, but it helps and for me makes the game a little more fun. I also like the angle better, I can still hit the river of slime on the right just fine (and for me at least, makes hitting the left ramp from the left flipper easier)

YMMV

I agree with you about the airball deflector and removing the mylar. Required!

Respectfully, IMO the right ramp is just fine with the standard hex post. I think it's supposed to be a tougher shot but it is still very make-able. I can make it pretty consistently.

Bending up the corner of the mech gate frame above stay puft may be a necessity. Strange how some games have the gate problem and others don't.
