After I did the overhead X-Men video, I had a few requests to to my other games. Here is Iron Man. The video is a little bit off-center, but so was I when I recorded it. Beer good! Turns out in this episode that drunken Iron Man is no match for the Jericho missle system! But that is what I love about this game. When things go bad, I can't wait to start up another game and try again!

Remember to set to 1080p...

War Machine is one of my favorite shots in pinball.
Can't get enough of it

I forgot how great the sounds and music are on this game. Thanks Shane.

Yeah! An upgraded speaker system and a shaker are a MUST for this game. The sound is just incredible on this pin.

I always thought IM needed a third flipper. When that ball comes down the right orbit it is just screaming for an upper flipper cross ramp flow shot.

Oh well, maybe on the LE!

Hoping someday I can trade my CSI + cash for an IM. Fun, good looking/sounding game.

^ Interesting, Gary Stern said the same thing about a third flipper at the release part and I overheard it. I don't know what a third flipper could do though with the playfield layout how it is, and personally I'm glad it doesn't have it. I think that Tron makes a good use of one though from what I have seen.

I'm with you... I don't think I would want a 3rd flipper on IM. I like the setup just like it is. I have the right side 3rd flipper on Whirlwind and X-Men in my collection.

Nice video. I'd suggest disabling the rear up post to really make the game flow even better and make the skill shot more of a challenge. Also maybe ad the right ramp reject post. IM is really a great game. Do or Die is a great challenge and very satisfying when u nail it.

Dang right! I managed to hit a near full value Do of Die shot the other day.

I actually do have that right ramp post ring installed, however, this IM was from the last run with the right ramp protector... shots that don't make it up that ramp are actually deflected to the left a bit when the ball rolls back down and hits the upper part of the guard. Also, if the ball doesn't even make it past the guard on the ramp, it is still further away from the ring as it rolls back because of the thickness of the guard vs a naked ramp. Therefore, the post ring doesn't help much.

Instead, when I am ready for it, like in single ball play, I give the machine a slap on the right side just as the ball is rolling back to the ramp guard to push it even further to the left and it usually ends up at the left flipper.

Shane - can you share some info on the camera rig? Some friends and I are trying to set one up and cold use any advice you can share.

Ha ha! Yeah... My rig consists of sandwiching my cell phone between a ceiling tile and the metal ceiling frame above the pin. Very low tech, but it works pretty good. I just do a couple short test recordings to get the angle where you can see from the flippers to the dmd before I do the gameplay recording.

What's your high score on IM? Looks like you have the game pretty well handled.

My highest so far is 100,941,560, which included a near full value do or die shot. However I usually average 40-50ish. Not sure I have ever really had the game "handled," though! Sometimes it just says "NO!" ...and you end up with something like 10 mil (or less) and get seriously embarrassed in the process.

Just recorded a decent Whirlwind video. It is uploading. It has another 2 hours or so to go.

That is a damn good score, especially considering no do or die. I will keep at it. One of these days, I will have to have a crazy good game again.
