Quoted from Geeterman1:Anybody have the air ball protector break on them? I’m not sure if that’s the official name but it’s the clear plastic above the three center drop targets. On the right side mine cracked off at both bolt spots.
[quoted image]

The ball defector shield is very flimsy and seems to be a common failure item. When mine failed, I knew I would be replacing it with a thicker piece of polycarbonate and of an improved design.

If you feel up to it, you could contact CFES and send him the measurements. He could make these with his laser cutter and possibly engrave ‘Halloween’ in the plastic. That would be a sweet mod.

Quoted from fattdirk:

The game is fantastic. I have most of the players at my location raving about how good it is. The pinside hive mind is driving the polarization just like they do with every new title. A small group if super vocal negative Nancy's. I'll continue to say it that this game is a masterpiece. Ignore the naysayers they have no taste.

Good to know! So, it hasn't caught on fire yet like your Alien?

Not side by side, but bookend my Spooky lineup.

Wow. All 5. Which one is your favorite?

Quoted from NorCalRealtor:

Wow. All 5. Which one is your favorite?

Hmmm. I’d probably lean towards Alice Cooper, then Rick & Morty. But I love the chaos of RZ and the humor of AMH. Halloween’s layout being different from the others is refreshing. It shoots great and is currently getting the most play time.

Exactly. Also alien is good to go now been working fine for weeks.

Had a friend over this weekend and of the games I own, he enjoyed Halloween the best. Check my lineup and you’ll see some big players.

I will continue to say that in the long run, this game will be sought after no doubt. 1200 only in the world? All the so called “pinball players” that rag on this game but then will say games like rush or led zep are good - gtfo. People that call the shape “Mike” Myers, also have no clue obviously.

Did you guys check out the Buffalo pinball stream recently? I thought those guys got it. They were like wow this game is actually good!

I purposely didn't watch that stream cause one of them called Spooky's efforts "amateur hour" in the past and thought they couldn't be objective so good to hear. Sounds like the real reputation of this game is getting out instead of only a few who have an axe to grind cause their "investment" couldn't be flipped immediately for a profit.

I agree. I am a huge Zeppelin fan and the pin sucked big time for me. Major letdown for me and even my wife and daughters. I am not a Halloween fan and have yet to watch any of the movies, and Halloween is getting the most playtime.

I own GZ, AIQ, and EHOH, and everyone loves Halloween. It’s very unique a blast to play each time. It’s our first Spooky pin and hope they do Scooby so can have a second one.

Powder coat issues a side, we love it and it’s my wife’s and it’s going nowhere. May sell Elvira though now.

Quoted from Mudflaps:

Okay, I uploaded six more cards without the Halloween logo. That's 18 cards total, so I think I've done my part. I also included more Halloween III stuff, because that movie rocks.

LOL yeah that was my humble basement and I can confirm the gang had fun on it and were surprised at how well it played. I for one can not wait for the Wizard modes to be coded along with the expert modes.

I’m enjoying it for sure so far, I think it shoots great and oozes atmosphere. What’s there now is pretty cool, just needs additional love and polish which I’m confident Spooky will deliver in the end.

Oh - so you’re the owner in that video? Nice. I thought you nailed the summary of the game right now.

Well the one dude is a massive JJP shill so Id take the opinions with a grain of salt.

#5815 3 months ago

Finally got the hear "Don't fear the reaper"! Trying to shoot the upper PF while managing the multiball is pretty challenging. I'm definitely glad the inlane lifters do NOT stage, which gives you some temporary relief during the chaos.

Thanks! I only got it the day before but the rules are pretty intuitive and was able to mostly wing it aside from somebody reminding me about the blood system… which by the way is super awesome for sneaking points in multiplayer games!

Quoted from fattdirk:

Eh, I’ve gotten to know Kevin pretty well since I moved here and he legit just loves to play JJP games. They take up half his gameroom so of course he’s gonna play a bunch of ‘em on his stream!

Math question for scoring:

I cashed in the 2X scoring perk with 10 bloods... I then locked the ball at the tombstone, started a multiball, and then bumped out the ball from the lock. Did this give me 4X scoring? Whatever it did was pretty great as I added ten million to my previous high score

Did the same thing last night and wondered myself.

Always stealing my spotlight you son of a bitch

#5820 3 months ago

I will say little nuances like that stack make this game interesting for sure if it was indeed 4x.

I'll need to try that later. Going into stalker mode with the 2x blood perk and then unlocking the ball for 4x could lead to some big scores.

508 just landed. only bad thing is the humming noise coming from the speaker and a minor scratch from t force shipping. dropped off machine last week when i was away without a courtesy call. that noise is really annoying though...great game.

Try turning down the volume on the amp pot in the cabinet. Mine came pretty cranked to the point where even at volume level 1 in the software menu it was ear split-tingly loud. That made the hum go way down also.

Definitely mess with the amp. Like yours, mine at level 1 was still loud.

Here’s a pic of the amp they used. This way you don’t have to lift the playfield to see the knobs.

Write behind the coin box and in front of the subwoofer.It’s the last knob on the right for volume.

I contacted them with this issue as well, they sent this pic as the way it is 'supposed' to be leveled on the amp.

My sub level is like .5 out of 10. Just a smidge or loomis shakes the cabinet...

#5829 3 months ago

I don’t have a Halloween, but have had success using one of these on the same amp used in Spooky games

Edit. Also I replaced the 3.5mm to RCA with a 3.5mm to 3.5mm then the ground loop isolated then a 3.5mm to RCA

Anybody having an issue with the Judith Myers ball releasing and going sdtm? Any way to stop this?

Yes. Drove me crazy. I bent the guide rail out on the right side just a tad so now when it releases it drops straight to the right flipper.
