So when i was considering my first pin it was between Ghostbusters and Metallica, and thank god i did not get Ghostbusters. Amazing artwork, and sounds... the gameplay... lord. So many center drains and side drains, thank god the game was on free play or i'd be broke.

Now that I'm basically done with Alien I'm ready to get back to my own pinball projects again, and that means finishing the Metallica mod I've had sitting half done for the last two years ...

#10605 2 years ago

This thread is sooo long and I don't want to go through all the posts but I was asking if there is a way to adjust the flipper button tension. My other games flip so easy, nice and loose, but when I play my MET it feels like I have to push the buttons so hard. Do I just adjust the leaf spring switches? I hate to mess with the switches much but if that's the solution I guess that's what I have to do.

What is it? Give us a hint. Hopefully it will be for both the premium and pro versions.

Really are two options here.

1 - replace the buttons
2 - disassemble the buttons and fix them

For some reason some buttons have a little extra slag on them from the mfg process. This slag creates a tighter fit and can even make some buttons stick. I've had a couple of them of which I've just taken them apart and sanded the inner areas that slide on each other and that's fixed them all. Once you get it apart you'll see it but for the most part it's the cup that normally has some extra plastic that rubs against the button itself.

Is your total light show good for the led version of Met?

Well, didn't take long for the Sparky protector plastic to break. It's been installed for only a week.

Will work for all versions of the game, will have original art and interactive lighting, it's not a topper.

Looks like it broke right at a web line where it was weakened. Ask if they will replace it with their clear protector. The clear one doesn't have any etched web design and may be less prone to failure.

Gryszzz sent this to me for free, so I've got no reason to complain other than it broke so fast. I'll likely replaced it with a clear protector because it did do it's purpose of eliminating air balls from that area.

Wow I remember you hinting about this awhile ago....time to get to work Aurich! Just don't post it in the infamous "Mod removal" thread
This time finish the darn thing.

#10616 2 years ago
Quoted from GotAQuestion:

I got royally ripped off by Metallica today. Was 1 shot away from completing For Whom The Bell Tolls, started 2X scoring annnnnnd... the ball comes out of the Fuel dead-end, bounces off the lane guide, and right down the outlane. Missed what would have been a 200M jackpot.
I raged and was tilted for about fifteen games. I don't think I've ever been that mad at pinball before.

Just popping in to say I've finally redeemed myself from this moment. Played a while yesterday and completed FWTBT, hit the 2x playfield, and cashed out a 175M jackpot. Not quite 200M but the total for the mode was over 200 so I felt good about it. Not to mention the extra points collected from the after-mode cash ins. Ended up putting up a new GC of 450M. Now to pass 500...

Haha yeah, back when I was first hinting it I thought I was gonna be close to getting it done, and then Alien came in and sucked up all my free pinball project time. I'm over putting any more time into Alien, time to get back to my own projects and let that game be what it's gonna be at this point. It's been 2 f**king years.

But my goal is to get the people in the mod removal thread to admit it's better than that stock thing it replaces!

Loving my MET Pro. Couple newbie questions regarding the orbit pop up post in the back center.

Is it supposed to pop up during plunge? It makes the skill shot virtually impossible to miss if you set it to the left lane. I prefer a more difficult skill shot. A setting I'm sure.

I've also noticed the post is up when I hit the left orbit. The red arrow is lit indicating I should shoot the left orbit but when I do the ball just hits the post and comes back out the same way it went in. The arrow light doesn't go out and I get no feedback that I did anything good lol.

Thanks for any clarification on these.

It is supposed to. If you hold the left flipper button at launch, it drops to allow for the super skill shot. The ball comes down to the flipper, then you have to make one of the lit shots within a few seconds.

I noticed the same thing on mine

#10625 2 years ago
Quoted from Max_Badazz:

A lot of us have swapped the post with a metal one to prevent this. The ball is supposed to hit the post, then drop to the pops. There is a link to the metal post about every 4 pages in this thread.

Once I finally got the metal post adjusted properly, the ball hits the pops almost every time.

#10626 2 years ago

Also on the post, it is supposed to be up for most orbit shots. It goes down for combo shots.

The one lit red arrow doesn't necessarily mean you should hit that shot on this game. Explore a bit more with it and you'll be quite satisfied when you figure it out. And you should always super-skill shot (hold left flipper at plunge) when playing for fun.

For a while after I got Met, I was thinking the lit red shot was like the combo shows in GoT. In that game you want to follow the shots.

But Like Joe just said, explore the rules more and it unlocks a lot more depth.

#10629 2 years ago

Awesome responses! Thanks everyone! Excited to get home and go for the super skill shot now!

Was a game changer for me and my wife when I learned about the super skill shot a month ago right here in this thread.

#10631 2 years ago

And if you hold the left flipper and soft plunge into the pops, i believe that is the hardest skill shot.

#10632 2 years ago
Quoted from finnflash:

Yep if you soft plunge into the right lane it is 4x and the left lane is 2x super skillshot.

Back of the playfield plastic with awesome artwork instead of the electic pinballs with much cooler lighting than 2 white flashers.

No brainer.

#10635 2 years ago

Wow McLean. Another outstanding detail job. Add that to the Sparky reference page. I'm curious how you made the horns & materials used (hydraulic clay?)

One of these builds you should really take some photos to document the entire process. Outstanding

I need my sparky turned into Lemmy!

#10637 2 years ago
Quoted from Soulrider911:

Thanks fytr bridgeman ironic, as just Thor morning I tried backhanding it, much more predictable!! Love this game

100% agree with backhanding, but wanted to add that intentional forehand bank shots off the FUEL targets is definitely doable.

The bank shot takes some momentum off the ball, too, the return isn't too bad. YMMV.

#10638 2 years ago

Damn. Sorry to see that Rick. Good news is the other Rick in WV only charges $6 for the clear one.

Thanks I'll give that a try first or replace the buttons. It's hard to believe the leaf switches could give that much tension and adjusting them was what was suggested previously.

Acutually from Bloomington, IL -- Does not matter -- This is amazing -- I love it -- I asked him to go over the top and do something original and something that has not been done before -- He spent alot of time on this and made a masterpiece -- Great job. Amazing Work -- Truly one of the best done to date.

#10643 2 years ago

The line for Aurich's mod starts behind me. It's going to completely change the look of the game because of what is normally staring you in the face during most of the gaemplay. Plus it will enhance the "world inside a box" aspect.

Stoked to hear this. That is kinda the one and only spot (to me) that needs an artistic reinterpretation.

#10649 2 years ago

I'm not talking about the hammer mod guys. I'm hoping he's talking about the back cab art behind Sparky.

What adjustments did you make to the metal post? Mine still seems to bounce back at least 75% of the time.
