Quoted from Astropin:

You're losing your mind

It Was doing my head in, So I had to clear my conscious, I can hear it clear now, roughly every 25 sec's

Can you hear it now.....while not playing the game?

#1303 4 years ago

I will pay $4300 cold hard cash for your IM...Let me know.PM me.thanks.

add 2k and I might start to think about the possibility of selling mine to you.

Just kidding. There's no way I'd sell mine.

List where you are ane you may get a bite. We are the same in a way because we both own/owned HS2, ST Pro, WCS,
SG, ACDC. Buy IM and play the crap out of it and enjoy it.

I'm in that same boat.....so yeah sounds like he needs an IM! Just get a NIB shipped to your door for $500 more (unless they went up over the last VE run?).

Rob

My VE did not come with mylar for the magnets.

#1311 4 years ago

The VE units do have them, I was wrong earlier.

#1312 4 years ago
Quoted from erak:

Mine came with a decal around both the whiplash and monger magnets.

I just sold my WCS on Saturday. We becoming more and more alike.

Passed on Nascar also. I guess I should get a STTNG.

#1314 4 years ago
Quoted from Kawydud:

The VE units didn't come with any mylar. I have made rings and donuts for them.

Mine came with Mylar rings around both magnets.

#1315 4 years ago

Here is a quick VID of the custom Pinball Browser music i added to my IMVE.

Sorry about my thumb.

#1316 4 years ago

If anyone has any other ideas of what could be added/changed let me know and I will give it a try.

So........that is awesome! How does one approach doing this? Please share.

I stand corrected, it is on there, never realized it was on there.

Maybe at the end of the game do one "whirrr" of the guitar, instead of 3, then regular guitar riff kicks in? Start it at 1:55 perhaps? Regular guitar riff has to kick in early because I usually hit the start button so fast to play again.

Very cool. Nice work.

#1321 4 years ago

Consider supporting this this thread:

https://pinside.com/pinball/forum/topic/iron-man-ve-again-should-code-be-revisited

Maybe Stern will read it and give us the half a morning it would take to make a minor code update for us.

I think it's great as it is. Especially if you walk away for a drink and come right back at it. I suggested Tony's "after party" speech for the ending and/or when you get a high score. It'd be a nice touch.

#1323 4 years ago

Added a new game over sound.

Tony says "truth is... i am iron man" then Iron man music plays.

I took the sound clip from his end of movie speech. Cut out the croud noise from it and added it to the start of a good clip of the song.

I think it fits better.

This should be factory, it's awesome. Great work and update. Proudly added it to my game, the Shoot to Thrill WM Multiball was a very nice touch.

#1325 4 years ago

In the same game I got a TOTAL of 140,000 during "fast scoring" (It had not even said "fast scoring" yet and the ball was draining) and then a TOTAL of 500,000 for "Bogey"! (Didn't hit a single ramp or orbit).

I really don't think it's possible to do worse.....especially in the same game.

Checked my audits.....I now have a total of 2 games between 10-15 minutes (zero over). Average score is 12 million (not all me).

#1326 4 years ago

I'm over six months now with IM and it just keeps getting better. Still my "Go-To" pin. I never say never but I don't foresee me moving IM along any time soon. ST and IM really do make a great one-two punch and have hogged most of my play time. They play very differently but both are intense games. ST is more of a journey and IM is just pure bare knuckle brawler.

Yes! I agree! ST is my sparring partner and IM is my boxing opponent. They play off each other very well!

#1328 4 years ago

Thanks for the upgrade erak.....much appreciated!

ST bores the hell out of me, but I know the feeling of IM working well with another longer playing pin. I go back and forth between IM and either TZ or MET (the long journeyman type games).

Something so simple, but so satisfying about IM. It has the perfect amount of things going on at any given time.

#1330 4 years ago
Quoted from Taygeta:

IM working well with another longer playing pin.

Agree with this 100%! IM sits next to my IJ and I honestly can't think of two games that are so different but play so well together.

Have always said IM plays like a jacked up System 11, and it reminds me a lot of one of my fave pins ever in WW. Just a mean, vicious, cruel game that you KNOW you beat but you never quite can that always has you trying one more time.

#1331 4 years ago

Completed Jericho again today.

#1332 4 years ago

Had DoD hurry up lit again today......hit the first shot to start it but missed the shot to collect!

Had only one shot left on Jericho yesterday!

If only I could put it all together in one epic game.

I did that yesterday, missed the DoD hurry up in one game and then hit it in a later game to set my GC score of 108mil. I don't know how you guys get to 150mil and above this is absolutely the hardest game I have ever owned. I recorded my session, video encoding now

#1334 4 years ago

Just wondering if people are spray painting their plastic coin reject surrounds gold for Iron Man (and LOTR) or buying them like that? They look cool with the red powdercoat.

Cheers!
Adam.

#1335 4 years ago

Gold spray paint

On YouTube now:

GC score starting @ 27:10. By my calculation that was a 13 minute and 32 second game to get that score. No wonder I was tired afterwards!

#1338 4 years ago

In the club!

As proof that this is the ultimate "one more game" game - I played for 45 minutes before bed...then came upstairs, did a few things on the computer, and then went back down and played for another hour. Total play count at the end of my first day of ownership? 90!

Was finally able to walk away after cracking 100m.

Can't tell you how many nights I've done exactly this. Welcome to the club!

#1341 4 years ago

Must not play before bed. So hard though!

Also I just found out that a friend of mine just ordered a pinball refinery IMVE.

#1342 4 years ago

So the shaker...worth it? Where do I get one?

#1344 4 years ago
Quoted from RDReynolds:

Absolutely worth it. You don't know what you're missing. Shaker and sub could very well be the only two things you add to IM or you can go overboard like I did.

Check and make sure this will work with the VE first:

#1345 4 years ago
Quoted from RDReynolds:

YES!

If you only did ONE thing to IM it should be add a shaker. I also agree that a sub would be #2.

#1346 4 years ago

Ok, thanks.

Funny story on this game...for months, I've had my name on all the high scores save for a mysterious (ha) G S at 75,000,000. I was having a killer game, over 70M on ball one with an extra ball at the ready. So I had three balls to knock G S off, and only 5M to get on those.

Yeah, the machine decided to show me, once again, WHO IS BOSS. I wound up at 74,874,100. I was so furious that I ranted and raved for about 30 seconds, walking around the game room steaming...and then immediately hit the start button on it.

I LOVE THIS GAME.

Ooooooooh! Good call on the shaker.

#1350 4 years ago

My first NIB pin. IMVE, I couldn't be happier with my purchase. Once I heard Stern was doing another run of IMVE's I knew this was going to be the first NIB pin.
