Was playing Junkyard this weekend, at midnight, and the game went into a Midnight Madness mode. That was awesome. Any other games have this?

Congo, DH, JM, NBAF, W?D...

Midnight Madness mode? What?! Can someone explain?!

#4 7 years ago

On some games if you play and the game's internal clock hits midnight (usually at real life midnight, why would you have your pin reflect the wrong time?), there is a strange mode, usually involving a crazy multiball.

on JM the game seems to shut off, then the midnight madness lights and the crazy multiball starts.

Midnight Madness is a special mode that's only available on a few WPC-95 Williams pinball machines.
The name reveals what it is: a special mode that only starts when the game is played at midnight..

Only these games have it:
Congo
Dirty Harry
Johnny Mnemonic
Junk Yard
NBA Fastbreak
Who Dunnit

I've never had to chance to see this yet, but it sounds fun

I would love to see this creativity with the code come back. Easter eggs too!
I need some MOO damnit!!!

I video'd my son playing mignight madness mode. I'll upload it to youtube, and post the link. I'm going to set the clock wrong on JY, so it goes into M M mode while the store is open. Should create some fun, watching people get it.

Here's the link of my kid playing Midnight Madness mode.

I have heard about the midnight madness mode but have never experienced it. Its an actual mode in ToM and it would be cool to achieve that at midnite. Overall, I think we need more creative programming like this. Im with Nimble.

I just purchased my first pin and it is Junk Yard...However I can not seem to get midnight madness mode to start or the secret mode on the Time Machine. I have tried using my correct local time and changing the clock. Anybody know why?

happened to me on a NBAFB on my 3rd game. So I was just learning the ropes and it goes ape-shit. It was an awesome surprise.

If I was a programmer I would put all kinds of cool shit like this in my game. Hidden stuff, super cool!

#17 7 years ago

i've had mine for about 3 weeks and I haven't played at midnight yet(i live in an apartment complex). Balselly, you might have the wrong rom version.

#18 7 years ago

On the PC, Dungeon Keeper would have an extra level at midnight but only during the full moon.

It was never mentioned, and was a great surprise.

Thanks to "futurepinhead" for the pointer. It was the prototype ROM (version 0.3) Got an updated ROM from action pinball and now it's working, and so is "Secret Mania" in the time machine. Thanks again

No problem, glad it worked out for you. I still haven't played mine yet, I just need to reset the damn time on that thing. Especially since it is not mine anymore and will be finding a new home in about a week or so.

I agree!

If you just wanted to play a Midnight Madness, futurepinhead, the clock on the Zbar's Whodunnit is accurate. Midnight is a fine time to be there. You can see it coming for miles.
