If you put all that on you won't be able to see the ball.

Is that purple led bleeding through to the electric switch insert on the right orbit shot? If I get bleeding like that, I use "blinders" by cutting a small cardboard flap to shield the light. The boxes for Ziplock baggies and freezer bags is real thin and works great.

Heavy Metal is meant to be loud and in your face, so I'd say that pin is Heavy Metal as F$%#!

Just made some custom apron cards...enjoy!
I'm gonna print and install them today, pics when done.
Print size is:
5in x 3.5in
14cm x 7.6cm

met_right_copy.jpg 209 KB

Don't you mean the size of the cards are 5 1/2 in. X 3in? Had someone measure his stock cards on his Met and he put them on a ruler grid and emailed me the pic's and it was 5 1/2 x 3 inch. Just a heads up before someone gets them the wrong size.

#711 5 years ago

Shot of my Pro with some cool goodies I came up with.
BTW.....

Fellow Metalheads you need these.

Shameless plug.
I am down to a half box then they are gone.

Feels so good to be part of the club!

#714 5 years ago

Added a few things to my Pro yesterday. A shaker motor and the snake tongue I picked up at MPE a few weeks back. Love the shaker! It feels more powerful then the one I have in Apollo13. I was pleasantly surprised. And it only took 10 minutes to put in. nice!

Now you need the fangs and the LED eyes, then the snake will be complete.

Very true Jeff. I actually am messing with my own versions of both. I have some fiber optic cables I want to experiment with, and some rubber molded teeth I need to cast yet. Not that I want to sell these things, but just because I enjoy doing stuff like that for fun.

Just joined this club and had a question? I see in earlier revisions that people were disabling or replacing the up post for the orbit shot. Is this still recommended or has it been improved in newer software revisions? Thanks

Just joined last week. Great game!

Hold the left button when plunging and the post will drop for a super skill shot. I don't think anyone is complaining since they added that.

You can disable the post in settings and during the skill shot by holding the left flipper. It doesn't bother me during play. For instance, it drops during combo shots.

"murdered out" ye olde flipper bats today to match the plastics + orange protectors from lazeriffic.

I finally get to join this thread properly, been wanting one of these for a little bit now. Picked up a really clean LE yesterday from a friend and fellow Pinsider. I'll probably tinker with it a bit, I usually do, but for the moment just hooked it up to a sub and and am enjoying getting the feel for the gameplay.

That's great and an LE too. I knew it was just a matter of time.

#728 5 years ago

Thanks so very much to Stern...My dream Theme Pin is amazing Lyman on code and Dirty D on Art !

Just c'ant get enough of it.

I put a shaker motor in my Metallica Premium tonight and I have to say I am disappointed. It feels like it's barely used compared to ACDC where it's simply fantastic! It's set for maximum use too.

my premium will be here in a few days. I never played a pin with a shaker. I will report back after playing a few hours. Thursday or Friday.

If I remove Sparky and send him off to be painted can I still play the game?

Just a note if the shaker makes a loud vibrating noise, you can eliminate that by tightening the long threaded screw (across the top) a few turns. I bought shakers for both my ACDC Luci and MET Premium Monsters from Flipper Fidelity.

Congrats! I'm now in the club too (see my unboxing thread: https://pinside.com/pinball/forum/topic/unboxing-a-new-metallica-premium-pics ).

Put a ton of plays on it already. Love this pin so far.

#736 5 years ago

Just curious how many people have replaced the block on the Premium/LE with the Newton Ball. Is it worth the change? Does it affect the magnet use?

#737 5 years ago

Loving this game.........it beats ACDC in my opinion. I love the Blackened Mode and Crank It Up Modes. Addded metallic purple/monster green powder coating, custom painted Napster Sparky, Barbed wire green metallic apron, custom painted speaker panel, custom painted crosses from Laseriffic, Mezel mods throughout, and purple dmd.

Don't forget MET is now a mostly finished game whereas unfortunately ACDC isn't. I own both and like them a lot, but I do find myself playing MET more because it just feels more diverse and less confining in the rules.

I think ACDC is done Rob.

Love them both and here to stay... but d'ont know why but the Fun factor is a litlle bit higher on Met .

#740 5 years ago

I "was" thinking about selling my Refinery Met a while back but when the new code came out I decided to keep it. Glad I did, it's a blast.

Sure, any game could always get more, but whatchootalkingboutwillis?

I think you are absolutely correct as Stern officially sees it. ACDC is done. Whether there is another update is probably going to be something Lyman does on his own time. Regardless if the game still sells well, it's 2 years old and they have new stuff to work on as opposed to spend more time on older product where the code is at a pretty good level. Could it be better? Sure, but right now it's just wishful thinking and only Lyman knows if there will be another update or not. I'm not holding my breath waiting for any more updates. I also passed on ST because of the way the code is and it still hasn't been updated. I'm thinking that game sees one significant update and then it's done too.

I hope Lyman will find time...A little while ago someone on Pinside wrote that he talked with Lyman and
Lyman said he as 3 pages of stuff he would like to do on ACDC.

Lets wish he finds that time

#746 5 years ago

Well I got my MetPro Monday evening, posted lots of pics on Twitter so I won't bore everyone here but here's what I ended up with. End result of 6hrs of updating code, changing over to all LEDs, lighted speakers,coffin sticker, Mezelmods Teeth, neon sling/ball guides, eyeball shooter rod, and boney flipper bats(phew!) Still have to wire up the powered sub and I have a Cemetary mod and Arcadeupkeep extreme backbox light kit and I think I'll be done lol.

Did you play it? Or just dress it up?

Ha! I've played it quite a bit actually . I'm painting my Sparky as we speak though! The problem with Metallica is I've had months and months of thinking what I want to do to it so my OCD kicks in as soon as I got it and I had to get cracking on it! Fun, fast game and a good departure from my Spider Man, which has longer ball times. I do feel that the up-post gets in the way, that is my only knock on it so far.
