Quoted from gliebig:

Think I got it. Thanks fellas. Put a little piece of sticky foam back there and test now works with playfield down.
Should I keep the foam there or try bending something? I don't want to break anything.

It may work now but it's not a long term solution. Did you look at post #9012? Bend that metal tab back up straight and remove the foam. Should last for quite a while.

Been in the club for about a week now and so happy to finally have one of these badboys! Such a great game. Added some snake fangs and mouth decal, creeping death side blades and ride the lightning UV lighting mod as well as the coffin skull insert. I'm loving it!!!
Made it back early from work today had to get a game in...turned the volume way down so as not to wake the wife, of course you can still hear the flippers...She showed up with coffee in hand and said, "see your having an acoustic set, huh..." Ha!

Welcome to the club!

What UV lighting mod do you have? I don’t see the Pinball refinery strips on the picture. Is there a new option I might be not aware of?

#13706 1 year ago

My best score yet! This was done in Tournament mode...no extra balls. 75,900,000 for seek and destroy.

Thanks, yeah this game is awesome! the UV mod that I have is just what was available from the MI pinball refinery, which was just the strip that is at the back of the pf. Unfortunately the strips that go along the sides are/were unavailable. Which stinks, cuz I was really looking forward to getting them... If you know anywhere else where I may be able to find them, please let me know!
I wonder if pinstadiums with the UV flasher option would have a similar effect as an alternative?

#13708 1 year ago

I think it's time to change out the rubbers on my METLE. Are some kits better than others. Also, what balls that are currently available should I be looking at?

I followed this chart for my pro, all Titan rings. I'm happy with the look and feel for sure. Shipping was super fast too.

Not sure how much is different, if any at all? On the PREM/LE though.

Just be aware that chart has the 2 rings on the exit of the top rollover lanes with the wrong size rubber. They should be 5/16 i.d. not 7/16 o.d. The posts are slightly larger on the bottom.

The link to google doc has them corrected.

Anyone know roughly when Stern will stop producing MET?

I'm planning to get one NIB, but have to sell one of my current games first. Can't yet decide what I'm willing to part with. Most likely TWD since it's such a drain fest!

#13713 1 year ago

Looking at your games, defiantly TWD. I would also think you might want Iron Maiden over Met.

I'd love your TWD, but it will be another year before I have the funds for it Anything I've read doesn't leave me to believe there will be NIB MET's that long though. I'm not sure anyone can actually say with any confidence though if they don't know when the license ends. Stern would make them as long as they can sell them one would think.

#13715 1 year ago

Just joined the club! Purchased an original owner HUO machine. Couldn’t be happier. Want to give a shout out to Pinsider thatdangguy for a hassle free sale!

It's a tough decision.. I currently have AFMr up for sale, but have been playing it lately and am starting to reconsider.

That AFMr would be tough to part with for me, love that game so much. Haven't played the re-make yet, but such a classic pin, you've got MMr too, LOTR and DI, TWD, really, really nice collection. Can't squeeze the MET in there somewhere and keep them all?

I can, but it would include a divorce

Then you both would have three games. Yeah, you better sale one before getting another.

Very nice collection indeed! But I’d sell MMr and buy Met!

(Did he really said that?!) Yep! I did!

#13723 1 year ago
Quoted from finnflash:

I never understood this. someone is looking to replace a game in their existing collection and have already decided which game they want but yet people feel the need to point out that what they want isn't really want they want (and that what I want is really more in line with their desires

me: so, I'm really thinking about asking out betty. I think that she and I would really hit it off
a friend: yeah, she's really cute, but have you thought about veronica? I think she's much sexier

How do you know that he would rather have IMDN over MET? Lol. He already said he wants a MET.....

#13725 1 year ago

Cause i can read minds
thought he should play that one if he hadnt yet, just a suggestion. Sorry i will keep my thoughts to myself

I'd keep TWD as it has a different layout than most of the others (Fan). That can help keep interest in your games and if it's to drainy for you to have fun close down the outlanes and adjust it to make it fun.

For me it would be an easy and hard decision.

Easy - Would be MM or AFM since they are fairly similar in play
Hard - Which of the two it would be. I would probably put them both up for sale for the high side of market value. Which ever one sold first would go and I'd keep the other.

I find it interesting that so many people suggest keeping TWD over almost every other game, yet it's rated lower than most games it is pitted against.

Maybe the ratings are weighed down from when the code was sort of shitty, or maybe people just like how punishing it is.

I'd say 70% of the time, I want to flip the game on it's side and just smash it to bits like that printer scene in Office Space. But the rest of the time, where I'm in Horde and trying to get as close to LMS as I can, the game is pretty intense and awesome!

yeah, been there - done that

I had to sell my LE about a year ago, to save it from being "burnt in a fire". By me.

But i've just gone and bought a HUO Pro instead! (+RS with the change left over!) I needed Horde back, and hopefully we'll get some RED GI going with the Total LightShow too.

This is a public forum where people discuss daily topics such as pinball. How don't you understand this? I have not the time nor the crayons to explain to you how they work!

I personally prefer the Pro model on this game, just because of the sweetness of that left ramp.

Though I do like the spinners on the Prem/LE.

I need to put more time on MET to see if it is going to take the place of one of my current games.

I think TWD got hurt by the original code releases and improperly set up games.

Under current code and versions that don't go SDTM most of the time out of the pops it's a really good game. It's like Metallica in that way as the original code was pretty bad but at least with MET it also wasn't an (we will call it unfair) drain monster from just a simple plunge. Like MET Lyman really worked the code to be brilliant once you truly understand the rules (feels more complex than MET), it just had that nasty feed out of the pops. Get that corrected and it can be a great game.

Also agree. Having owned both; I only miss the red GI of the LE, nothing else.

Are the creeping death side blades a must have mod for this game? Are mirrors good on this? Just got a MET Pro LED with total light show. Need to update to color dmd but looking for other cool mods.

"All in"? Do you mean you spent top dollar for a Dirty Donny custom Sparky? Or is there another custom painter out there? ModFather, maybe?

#13742 1 year ago

I played my first game where I got two CIU modes! I've had the game since November, so yeah, I know I suck... Didn't have a great score (130M or so), because I drained right away after starting each of the modes, but I still made it!

#13745 1 year ago

Picked up my Metallica Premium today. Right away I'm having issues with the coffin magnet. If I change the settings to enable the magnet after hitting the captive ball it will hold the ball, but it seemingly will never recognizes the ball is there. I don't think "switch 63" is working. The previous owner just replaced the magnet board. I've reset everything, checked for continuity, and tested the magnet (4.8 ohms). Anything else I can test or is the only option to try another magnet board. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Magnet Test...

#13746 1 year ago

Anyone have a picture of how their apron is wired up (LE\Prem)? I think I might be missing the "Z" connector, not sure. Thanks.

I have had my game for a year or so and have played many ciu's but no end of the lines. So have adjusted each object vakues to 5 like snakes, coffins etc. You could try making it easier to start ciu so you can get proficient at playing it out and even getting to eotl. I suck at this mode currently. You can always return to factory settings at a later date

Can you post a video of in game play? Not exactly sure what problem you're having. Also, the magnet does not appear to be flush with the playfield. The ball should roll off and down the playfield when the magnet releases.

#13750 1 year ago

Hi been looking for help how to change CIU settings and can't find it. Also have looked in the MET manual but having trouble.

How do I change the CIU requirements of 15 hits per item down to 10 hits per item?

EDIT:. Nevermind. Figured it out.
