Rules question: A guy told me that if you hit an orbit/spinner first then hit Monger toy when raised, you get a higher point value for bashing monger.

I can’t seem to confirm any added value. Score seems the same to me with or without orbit shot?

They explain this rule on one of the Buffalo pinball streams...I’ll try to find it...........Joey

Anyone ever have a problem with the ball getting stuck at the end of the right ramp? It’s getting hung up on the edge of the slingshot plastic. It’s like the ramp or the slingshot plastic need to move 2mm the opposite direction and I’m not sure how to pull that off without breaking something.

#3505 44 days ago

The sling shot plastic has play in it. Loosen the nuts and adjust as needed.

Dear IM Owners,

Posted below elsewhere and was made aware of this thread. Hope you can help. Except for the criminally insane DMD everybody's nuts for our new IMVE.

"1. Holy bleep, the DMD is illegible. Nobody can tell what's going on during cut scenes. Is Color DMD a must, or is there something I'm not seeing in settings?
2. I put in a custom message...'Welcome to the [XXX] Arcade!"...but it shows up with a line thru it, with scores from the last game to the left, and it runs off the screen to the right. Crappy pic attached. That can't be right...can it?
3. How can I get Iron Monger to stay down until earned? He pops up at game end and lowers at start. I turned the motor off in setting #18, but that's not it."

I've since learned color is a must-do, but further amateur Qs...which is better, an LCD or LED? What's the best way to acquire the DMD, please? And is it massively better or is the problem really the video driver? Do I toss the old DMD or sell it for a sizable offset to the crazy ~$400 for color?

Inquiring minds. Thanks for any insight!

1. ColorDMD is a "should" and in your case, probably the best thing to solve your issue. ColorDMD.com I prefer LCD, some like the LED.
2. Never tried a custom message - can't help ya there.
3. Iron Monger is up by design in attract mode and requested to be that way by Gary Stern himself to the programmers. It goes down by design at the start of the game. Theory is that it is shown in attract mode so the playfield doesn't look as bare and its so you know there is something there to strive/shoot for.

Hit the start button again before he has a chance to start coming up. Rinse, Lather, Repeat

As for the ColorDMD, yes, LCD. Nobody actually likes the color LED because they always look out of focus due to the offsets inside the LEDs between colors.

Try to un-seat and re-seat all DMD cables. Sometimes a DMD issue is as simple as that. If you are leaning towards a ColorDMD, you won't be disappointed. I also have an LCD and love it.

Hi

My Iron Man has very Slight spotting on the ramp flaps .. still very smooth but would like To replace them

Any good sources ? I have checked around but come up short

Any other pins have same size flap ?

Thanks

#3511 23 days ago

Put a color DMD (LCD) in mine and is o.k. The video capture animations don't really do anything justice but still much better than the stock monochrome.
Have a red led DMD in the apron also, really way to do the comparisons.
Your DMD with the line is faulty, probably has a dead (dark) LED that causes the addressing/display error. Not a valuable item with this in mind.
Since they work in B/W games (with an appropriate 5V supply), always good for a spare if you need a display in a hurry.

Unbelievable. Where does the time go?

I started this Iron Man Club thread 5 years ago! I can't believe that I have had my (second) Iron Man that long. And still not ready to sell!

I sold mine last year, but wish I still had it. I just can't afford any more than I have right now and might need to even move another game to pay bills.

Oh well!

Let me know when you're ready to move something. I might dip in

A friend of mine really wanted my Vault Edition. I like my friends to be happy... but I like me being happy more. I had to say no.

Iron Man just provides pure pinball satisfaction in a 3 minute long game. I’m still bummed I poo pooed it for so many years calling it a “one ball game”. If Stern hadn’t released the VE I never would have known what a great game it really was.

Who sells these pop bumper cap kits besides pinballdecals?

Hooked did the ones on my game. They look similar.

#3518 20 days ago

Hooked on Pinball

After owning at least 35 pins, i'm sure my Iron Man will never leave. In fact, if i'm not interested in pinball anymore, i will keep it, just because it's a perfect game.

Has any one made an ac/dc music version of the rom's?

I don't own an ac/dc so saying 'just go play that' doesn't help me.
I've googled it and id found people talking about it years ago but nothing recent.

#3520 10 days ago

There's a version with "Shoot to Thrill" during War Machine multiball and an outro of Black Sabbath's "Iron Man" when the game is over. Not sure if there is a version with more than that, though I would be interested as well. It would be awesome to have a version with more AC/DC music.

Yeah...I have the version you are referring to.
