Holy **** awesome!

REALLY crappy day. Finally headed down to play a game. No restarts, just one game. Nearly doubled my high score. Finished Blackened and Battery. First time collecting all band members then completing Four Horsemen. Really fun machine.

Quoted from Eskaybee:

No, it was going to be and was replaced with Blackened. That's why the animations seem more Four Horsemen themed (not that I've reached it myself yet ;_, though with Blackened's apocalyptic theme it probably still matches okay.

Ok, so I ordered my first NIB pin from Gio at Pinball Refinery, that Steve is going to put together for me, a Roadcase (have a Monsters translite here already).

Any tips for the day of delivery? After reading some of the disaster threads I know better than to simply sign for it and get it inside and then check it out. Since I may be solo when it gets delivered will a decent hand truck do for wheeling it around to the basement? I planned on using a ratchet strap to just make sure it didn't move once I've got it on the dolly/truck.

While I don't want to annoy the driver, is it bad form to wheel it around to my basement door (outside, ground level) and unbox it there to inspect before signing rather than at the curb by the truck?

You have every right to do that before handover especially when paying top $$$

#821 5 years ago

Thanks just wasn't sure if I insisted on opening it if he'd insist on it being done at the curb.

I finally made it to the club, with an awesome Refinery Edition Premium. This one was the demo unit at Pinball Refinery's booth at CAX, and it is an absolutely amazing machine. A big thanks to Gio and Steve! You guys are great to deal with, and this has been a great buying experience for me. I will try to take some pics tonight, but this is a quick one I grabbed at the show:

you are going to want to tweak that snake to not shoot ball right down the center drain..

The only thing that got me to stop being mad that I missed out on a deal for a purpled up Refinery Premium earlier in the year was picking up my LE, they made it a great looking machine.

That snake is vicious! Sometimes it kicks it over to the left inlanes, and others sdtm.

Yeah, trust me you want to tweak that. You will be deep in a game, get one of those sdtm and then you will need new glass...

I am revisiting the Metallica drops with the redesigned version that seems to be working on Star Trek. As you can see they are back lit.

Mine was doing the same. I replaced the coil sleeve in the upkicker and now mine serves consistently to the left flipper.

Yes, a Polk PSW-10

#835 5 years ago

Iam also noticing where the ball drops on the inlane switch blade from the right wire form ramp, it has bent it towards the side of the slot touching the wood. Can I bend this over, or do I have to replace it? The left ball drop in the inlane appears fine, but the right one when it drops off ramp, it slams the blade into the side of the cut out slot. Thanks.

Yes, it's only a wire.

Good choice! I know you were initially hesitant to add a sub. What do you think?

#839 5 years ago

Freshly waxed...to be honest, despite some "nice" scores, I had never "finished" a CIU before.
My GF was watching TV in the living room when I was playing and as soon as the completed noise came out she said; "What the hell is that."

Indeed!

Also, I'm not really into mods these days...but I got the Pinball Refinery speaker sticker and it looks really nice.
I never liked the look when W/B switched to those all black panels.

EDIT: Great to be a MET owner. Not too long ago "NIB" was just a far off thing to me. Saved up like we all do and then had to sell a machine but it all worked out, really happy; like we all are So you peeps that want a NIB...you can do it.

just put in a pinnovator headphone jack. a must imho! the sound is superb. I thought it was good on my ac/dc but on the Met its even better!!!

what headphones do you use?

I had a $300 pair (forgot the brand) that is built for extra bass and it sounded bitchin! but the headphones were over the ears and closed and i broke out in a sweat after 5 mins of use so i returned them and got Senhheiser over ear 'open'. Not good on the bass sounds but at least my head and ears get ventilation. Im on the hunt for another pair that is both cool on the ears and head, but provides superb bass.

from what people who supposedly know say, dr. dre "beats" are the best. I have no clue but my over the ears bose are simply awesome. and i am a cranky old guy who hates to have the feeling you describe and with these i don't seem to suffer! lol

#844 5 years ago

and btw, the installation of this is very very easy and the result looks "factory". you tube it and its there.

Don't buy Beats, they're an overpriced fashion brand. Here, this is a great piece on alternatives for their line:

Sorry to crash your thread being a non Met owner, buuuuuut I am in the market, have a question and need your help.

I have young kids 5 and 8 years old and was wondering if there is a Family Language mode on Met? Also, If there is how does it work? Does it bleep out the bad words or not say lines at all?

Thanks for your help and play some pinball this weekend. OK.

Yes there is a setting to turn off the language. It just beeps over the words. It does not edit the song lyrics just the call outs. So in Fuel when james says "F--- 'em man, white knuckle tight", that is still in the game. Etc.

My kids are 11 and 3. The 11 year old is mature enough to hear and not repeat. The 3yr old is oblivious. But i do usually turn the language off unless im playing without the kiddos around.

Great, thanks. I think if my 8 year old son were playing he would be more into the play than listening to the lyrics in background music and my 5 year old daughter the same. Have some local collectors I know who own Met and will go play their games before I decide to purchase.

Dont play it, unless you have the $$$$ to buy it, cause your going to love it!
