Just did update. Agree, even better now. I believe it is one of the most underrated games ever made. Although made the adjustment in menu for scene to continue at the end of ball. Don’t want it to be too easy

#22 1 year ago

The game rules!

#24 1 year ago

I have pro. I feel there is no really difference. Got it new and I don’t regret it at all

#25 1 year ago

Between pro and LE. It’s the color dmd that’s a must

Quoted from PINPSYCHO:

Glad you mentioned that. I went back in and looked at the options for the scenes and thought I had it on the harder 1. Didn't see the scenes continue but just the last scene continue before. Like the scene continue much better and gives it a little more of a challenge.I just found this game still in the box about 4 months ago and I think it is 1 of the best pins in my collection,even before this new update. This game has no disappointment for me at all.

I totally agree. Out of all the pins I have, ghostbusters is so much fun. I think it’s better than Munsters. Didn’t have a problem with the original code. Must say, the lights and call outs are way better. Normal flipper strength is better. The default is strong and it’s not necessary... it’s too much.

The new code update although I love it , now my fairly new Ghostbusters resets if you get deep into the game has anyone else had this issue

Quoted from pipes:

I love the new code. I wouldn't change a thing. Well done Dwight.

My game resets now when you get deep into the game the display actually says game resetting it only happens when you get deep into the game has this happened to you my games lesson a year old it never did it with the old code

Quoted from TaylorVA:

How deep? Like AYAG deep?

We came we saw. And later it was during backoff man and storage facility multi ball/ same time. A lot going on. Both times today I was at 1 billion plus. So pretty deep. A crappy game didn’t happen. Never ever happened with old code. Do you think I should reinstall and re-download

Quoted from TaylorVA:

I don’t think it will hurt. I haven’t had anything like that happen and I’ve had several 5 billion+ point games. Haven’t gotten to AYAG and feel like someone mentioned it reset on them when they got there but may have been in beta when it happened.

Well thanks for your help my friend I really appreciate it. I’m a little frustrated because there was nothing wrong with my game like I said it’s only less than a-year-old Started acting up this week when I updated the new code it was when I had gotten into the billions in points and there was a lot going on
Please let me know if something similar happened to you. I totally love the new code and I think the game is awesome. But I’m not happy that my Games doing this now. I have five other new stones with no issues and I’ve done code updates on them it makes me wonder if it’s software

#65 1 year ago

Spoke with Stern tech this morning.. new code causes game to reset when deep into game. I’m not the only person that they ve heard that from. Please email stern if you have this problem. You eventually will

#74 1 year ago

Swapped out power distribution board. I put money it’s software. Did it to someone else also

#78 1 year ago
Quoted from chuckwurt:

The reset I saw seems directly related to Midnight madness. Did you have that going? If not, your issue may not be software. Try and make note of exactly what was going on when it reset if it happens again. That will help Dwight immensely.

All I can say is that is was deep into game. During storage facility multiball plus mode scene. And only when score was over a billion. Never happens with a score less than that. Never ever happened with previous code with scores over a billion. I don’t score a billion plus ever time. Maybe 1 in 30 games.

Like I said. The game is well kept, never overplayed or left on. 7 months old played many a good game and this only happened after the new code was installed last weekend. It’s not voltage from outlet, the surge protector, the power distribution board, node board. Swapped out for Munsters boards and same thing happened. 3 times total on 1 week. And only on billion plus scores

Quoted from Rager170:

I doubt its a power issue. I find it very strange to think that a power issue would make the machine shutdown and restart itself. Usually with power issues you notice a lack of power, not a resetting of the system.

Topper. That’s it

#97 1 year ago
Quoted from LouMatt:

Plenty of games have reset issues with power issues. I believe he said it is happening when he has over a billion points and the game is going nuts...so just trying to gather all the facts.

Swapped boards and it happened. Once

#98 1 year ago

How could it not be something with the code if it hadn’t happened before. And as I said I’ve played 102 cans of the old code and it never happened and now it’s happening. And I switched out the Power distribution board and it happen. When I look at what has changed the only thing that is changed is the code. I love the code to but I don’t like it we setting during the game

#101 1 year ago
Quoted from chuckwurt:

I think it being a code issue is possible. But your over a billion theory is not correct as others have stated no issues with those types of scores. So not a code issue with over a billion scores. Keep playing and try to reproduce and remember exactly what series of events led to the reset.

Ok. I will. Try tonight. And I’m off Friday. I really do appreciate the help. It must be as you get further up the ladder hence your scores are higher the further you go you’re probably right
I’ll pay closer attention to what actually is going on.

#102 1 year ago
Quoted from pinballaddicted:

There are a few buys in the code, we have been finding them and reporting to Stern. I am sure another update will be out soon.
Report your issues to Stern and see what they say.
Have you tried re-installing the code and doing a full install? We will be doing that and if that does not fix some of our bugs, we will be putting the old code back in for now.

Yep. Re installed. Spoke with stern tech and they Forwarded my email to the engineers
I also copied and paste people that were having the same issue with rebooting with the new code. I appreciate the help

Quoted from marspinball:

With all the new interest in GB any chance Stern will make a new batch of toppers?

Maybe. But you might want to reconsider considering the Munsters topper nightmare!

#105 1 year ago

The first one I got after a three month wait came to me internally in pieces. I finally got one yesterday working. It is pretty cool I asked Stern to send me return shipping for the other and they sent me the new one without any return shipping so now I have one that works and one that doesn’t work

My premium on soft flipper power is getting far fewer airballs.

Agree. Did the same. Game is awesome
