What do you think of the clear and red rubbers before I put Ramps back onimage-974.jpgimage-794.jpgimage-224.jpgimage-875.jpgimage-279.jpgimage-128.jpgimage-963.jpg

I put clear on mine. Don't like how it plays. But haven't made the effort to take 'em back off yet either.

They're too thick is the biggest problem. All openings get smaller because of the thickness, outlines, top lanes, etc. Plus they look crappy when they get pulled tight and the tightest parts turn opaque.

I have had my IM VE for two days now and man . . . games on this pin are the shortest I've ever had in my life! It's like no time and you are on your last ball. For you purists, you will shudder, but I put it on 5 ball play. That only extended the game about a minute and a half! Ha. So, I took everything off of Factory Pre-set and put everything on "Easy", and maxed out ball save. I got a lot of excitement but barely racked up any more points. I was still pressing the 'Start' button almost as much as the flippers!

Next was tinkering with those outlanes that gobble balls so quickly that you can't even see 'em going down. I moved the two posts to the narrow holes. Hell . . . they ate the next balls as fast as if I had done nothing to them. And don't let me get started on the STDTM!

I hate to 'cheat' anymore, but I'd like to have more than a 3 minute game. Looks like I'm heading toward setting it on 10 balls, a potential 50 "Extra Balls", and putting rubber bands on the outlanes to block them off.

Welcome to the club!!! You'll get better, it'll get easier but it will always kick your ass.

I have a NOS pf on the way at some point when Stern gets them back in, getting some Auto clear on it as well, cant wait to do swap. Gotta love Ironman should take all of ~5~ hours to swap.

Although, Im sure Ill ultrasonic a bunch of stuff.....

#761 4 years ago

clear rubbers all the way - looks great with the light coming through! Oh and if you haven't seen, Dead Flip is doing Iron Man all this week: www.twitch.tv/dead_flip (even NOW!)

The whips are bright? Cripes. Is there an uncontained nuclear reactor under your PF?

Knock knock.
Who's there?
DaveH and Iron Man!

Oh my. I bought it on a whim. I've had it for a few days now, and holy crap! What a game. I set it up completely jacked, set everything to hard, added a subwoofer, and let it fly. It's brutal in the best way possible. It took about 10 games on it to understand what all the fuss is about.

I do have an issue with airballs. Right off the flippers it can get air, and off also off the monger plate. Once its airborne it can get crazy if it hits a drone target, so I need to get that squared away quick. But even with that, just wow. What an exciting game!

Did your wax your game? I wouldnt recommend that, as it would make the balls go crazy

Quoted from FrederikFrost:

Looks like it was the Monger really causing the big ones (although I've only played a few games since adjusting it). The back of the top plate was too low and the front just a speck too high. So when balls hit the lip the got air, then off stuff in the back and would smack around.

And I think I'm already addicted to the game!

Where did you get that display and speaker panel? Looks awesome.

#774 4 years ago

stay away from monger shots when it's raising or lowering imho

#775 4 years ago
Quoted from spideynhb:

Dangerous shot or it could damage the mechanism?

#776 4 years ago

you can airball pretty easy (glass!) so unpredicatability/damage (and getting the ball stuck in weird place!) and eventually you're going to dent/damage the plastic cover of iron monger. When the ball goes airborne you've lost control, and there's so many things you already can't control already in this game...

Thanks. Speaker panel decal was from Pingraffix. Speaker and apron lights are courtesy of Hooked

I'm joining the club.

I just brought home my second IM! After selling my first one, I had my eye on another. Once the VE came out, I figured I'd get one. I was able to find a HUO with about 200 plays on it.... practically brand new. The only mod is the shaker. I'm gonna pimp her hard!

Nice! Hook that puppy up to an external sub!

#785 4 years ago

I asked this in the IM VE thread but didn't get a reply so i figured id ask here:

1) To get 2x Do or Die you hit the 7 IM Stand-Up Targets (after 5 characters lit), have a specified amount of time to hit center shot to active DoD then hit center shot again?

2) Is it possible to get higher then 2x DoD? If so, how?

-

An issue I noticed starting yesterday is when I activate Iron Monger and the ball is held by the center shot popup post there is a loud buzzing. Ive read that maybe I need to adjust the coil stop? Im not sure how the mechanism works, so any help would be appreciated.

thanks!

Hey Zentron, didn't that gal, Sunshine?, you came to the tourney with a week and a half ago hit a double do or die or is that a rumor I just started? I thought John mentioned that happened on his IM. If she did ask her (and if she did she is awsome!). If I am wrong - opps.
Merry Xmas to you and your family and friends.

#787 4 years ago

Yes, I had the high score on game as I got midway through Jericho until her game below:

We played Sunday at a local place for Gridiron Greats Assistance Fund. We met in the winners final where we beat me and again in the tourney finals and she beat me again! She is going to represent the Carolina Panthers in the Vegas tourney.

We're thinking of heading to the tourney on 1/3 to represent Atlanta Falcons..

I forgot to mention, I take some credit for her IM victory as we played mine at my house Thursday evening for a good bit.

Nice, 59 million jackpot on that one! There is one thing playing tons of games at home and posting that score, but it is very hard to show up at a tournament and pop 87 million during competition.

I talked with her for a while and she is really nice. I saw her story on the Bash also. Glad that she enjoys people so much and is so great at it.

You have to start double scoring via the 7 IM standups. So you have to have completed fast coring already. Then you hit any standup to start double scoring and then hit the center shot to start do or die. The you hit the center shot again for 2X do or die. Very difficult to line up all together. I've got about 500 plays on my IMve and I've done it once.

I don't think you can go more than 2X. There are no other multipliers.

Good luck!

#792 4 years ago

Idiotic question here that I have probably already asked...how do you get to Do or Die? Do you have to complete Jericho?

#793 4 years ago

Do or Die jackpot is completing all the modes in 1ball then activating it with a center spinner shot…..Do or Die multiball is simply unattainable unless your are the most heinous OCD offender.

#794 4 years ago

So it requires completion of Jericho?

#795 4 years ago
Quoted from RDReynolds:

Not sure, I was at a party a few weeks ago and they had the glass off trying to finger it out, it was a mystery to them...

#796 4 years ago
Quoted from centerflank:

Qualifying Do or Die only requires *playing* all the modes in one ball not completing them.

All modes need to be completed/won to reach Do or Die Multiball. (Need not be on the same ball).

#797 4 years ago
Quoted from RDReynolds:

No. Jericho and Do or Die are two separate, disjoint items.

#798 4 years ago
Quoted from pinballcorpse:

True dat!

#799 4 years ago
Quoted from RDReynolds:

..how do you get to Do or Die?

Play all the character modes during one ball. When all characters have been played once during the same ball, they will all pulse in unison. Hit the center spinner to start the Do or Die mode, hit it again to collect the hurry up award.

Academically, it could be done. In practice, I seriously doubt it.

After achieving the Do or Die award, everything is 2x the remainder of the ball. So reach Do or Die again (in the same ball), and activate 2x from the IM targets. Should be 4x award.

Again,...in theory.
