Hoping to hear from anyone that has a Spooky Domino's on route. How is it holding up? Are there ball hangups or other snags like on AMH that would make this a pain to have on route? Any other known issues or concerns to consider about putting this title on route?

#2 2 years ago

I'm not sure about route, but it was used the MGC tournament this weekend and it seemed to hold up just fine. I didn't notice any stuck balls or other problems with the game.

We got one on location....it's hard to choose it amongst over 40 other pins....but the (very few) times I've played it n I've watched several games played...no hang ups or concerns at our location....now the Hobbit on the other hand...nib 2-3 weeks ago...I still don't think it's running right.... ..............Joey

I've had mine for 4 months and haven't had any stuck balls. I had to adjust some switches and mess with the Noid orbit to get it right at the beginning but no maintenance issues. I do have an AMH and do get stuck balls on occasion.

I played the Domino's on location at Pocketeer Billiards in Buffalo, NY a few weeks ago. It looked like most of the GI was out and the sound stuttering pretty badly. Regardless, still a fun, fast game and great to see it in the wild!

The Dominos at MGC as far as I know never had to have the glass off for anything. The only "issue' I heard was the ball going in the left outlane when shooting the ramp. But this was due to the outlane post being removed for the tournament.

Yes, this was a choice we made. Since using only one machine, we didn't want people to simply shoot the middle ramp over and over and over for points. The removal of that ramp made the center shot a very dangerous shot, instead of the shot you just kept going for.

Yep figured that. I'll add diminishing returns to that in the future.

I've had mine on location for about a month now, it was also NIB before I put it out. I've had several issues with mine too. I had a pop up mech that I replaced the entire assembly. Also had a flipper spring break (no big deal) and I've had to reset a few USB cables due to some of the lights being out and not keeping score. Other than that it's been a great pin on location.

Ahhh....so you are the man with the Hobbit and TOM at that little Irish Pub I assume? I left some initials there a few weeks ago, was wondering who the brave man was to route a hobbit.

BTW.. there is a version 5 out on spooky site if you are running older code

Where is the code at with this game? Would one expect a number of future up dates or is it pretty much where it's going to be?

I know, I was just about to get a rob zombie spook show, but after all the issues the machines were having at TPF I changed my mind. dominoes didn't seem to have any issues, the jetsons have several. Finally getting a chance to play the spook show and the ball gets stuck on my first game from the plunger to somewhere behind the upper playfield. After shaking the machine and waiting on ball search over 6 times I gave up. Luckily I found another one, unluckily my ball got stuck on my second turn. same thing waited 5 or 6 times for ball search and shook the machine a little, but nothing. Sucked to because when I was attempting to play the jetsons, I saw several other people take their turns on Spook show.

Willing to give it another chance next time, I like spooky since they are the only ones willing to do something not specifically targeted for all ages. Wish someone would do a scarfaced themed pin.

I have a GOT on route, after a couple of bad node boards everything went pretty smooth. Twice I've had a ball go to the back bottom of the cabinet. Not really sure how this happens, this is the only game I have that ever does this.

#16 2 years ago

Are there any protective add ons out there for this game? Cliffys?

#17 2 years ago

FawzmaGames My Domino's #110 is on location at my arcade & some of the better pinball players have told me of an issue with the multiball where the flippers can't be held up to trap a ball (very awesome!) (I don't recall the name of the multiball). Here is the issue... if they are holding the right flipper button up when the multiball is started the right flipper will stay up and cant be used until the ball drains and the player's turn is over.

#18 2 years ago

Ok I'll double check. I think I fixed it for the next version already.

Handle the rush, is the mode you shouldn't be able to hold flippers.

Yes, there is some tweaking necessary for RZ.

I had same ball hang up and it was a total pain to fix due to dismantling etc but it should be fine now.

The important things look great on RZ. Playfield - no chipping/ghosting. Cabinet good. And a real backglass

And the game has tons of new code coming and is already a blast to play.

Thanks for the response. If they dont touch the flippers when it starts, the multiball does work fine & i love seeing the reaction when they can't hold or trap a ball.

Has anyone wired in a dollar bill acceptor for route use?

Haven't heard from Fawzma in 18 months on this so I doubt anyone cares anymore. Shame since all paid 6k expecting code to be finished at some point.

My league will not play Domino's in their league due to unfinished code and I don't blame them in the least.

Spooky did it on contract. Why not ping them and see if there are any plans to fix major bugs like this...

#25 1 year ago

A update will be coming for Domino's. Bug Fixes, yes. More content, Yes. It will be polished and finished.

#26 1 year ago

Anyone have one of these for sale? I'd like to have one back.

Sound continues to be garbled and is such a complaint amongst any player that a friend I lent the machine to (and delivered by hand for free) asked me to take it back; he simply couldn't handle it. Just sayin' that's my experience!

Still at version 5 according to Spooky's site. And still no manual/schematics either.

I received a PM from the gentleman doing the code, Fawzma Games. He advises that if the SD card gets replaced with a new one and re-installed, the sound problem will be fixed. I wish someone had told me that three years ago! Pretty sure it is not on the Spooky site or mentioned in any official capacity ie: e-mail owners!

Anyhow, I am grateful for the advice. I was also advised the Domino's code v.6 was "in queue" . Hopefully that means 2-3 months. That would be a reasonable turn-around time.

50 days gone by since we last addressed this..and not a peep. Just sayin'. Someone needs to step up and be accountable.

Well these folks come up when you punch in “Spooky” So they seem like the folks we may want to hear from.

And yet...radio silence!

I love the idea of Spooky... and get that they have bigger fish to fry at the moment... but it should have been communicated that they were sending me a half-baked pinball machine for $5,300 with no prospect of finishing the game. Just be honest.
No video-mode, no Pizza Wars flipper gimmick, no complete code three years later. Brutal sound. This is the kind of stuff we make fun of Stern for.
