Placed an order for the Monsters Premium Translite back when they were out of stock (didn't realize they were out until after I ordered). Anyways, I got an email today stating it had shipped out. Checked game room guys ebay listing and it looks like there are 3 more available. Link is below.

Posted this in the PinWoofer thread, but thought I would throw it up here too since it is MET specific.

Recently installed a Superkit in my MET Pro and wanted to give a quick review.

My MET had FF speakers in it when I got it and I added an external sub several years ago and I just have never been happy with the sound. Given this was my first Pinwoofer kit, I went with the full kit with speakers and will use the FF speakers in another game.

Install took me a little while as I went really slow and the stock wiring had already been changed due to the FF kit and therefore everything looked a little different than the “before” photos provided in the instructions. I had a few questions/minor issues along the way and Dan was fantastic at answering all my dumb questions and had me up and running quick. His response time and customer service is fantastic!

After finishing the install and dialing it in a little, all I can say is WOW! The backbox speakers are clear, crisp and sound great, but what really blew me away was the bass from the cabinet. It sounds fantastic, hits hard and adds a tactile feel to the game that my external sub could not come close to matching. It really changes the experience of playing and takes it to a whole new level.

Overall this was one of the best upgrades/mods I have ever done and I couldn't be happier with the product or Dan's customer service.

Agreed I am a happy 2x customer. Pinwoofer even made me a special extra cable to power my 8 way splitter from his amp.

I have some nib 2018 run playfields for sale. Message me if interested.

Is there a way to hear/play to the "live" versions of the Metallica songs? I found a way listen to the "live" AM songs on acdc.

#16856 11 months ago

I am afraid not.

You can't do it- it was one of the things that makes AC/DC so cool and i looked for it as soon as i got my Met - it should be standard on all music pins but as far as I know only on AC/DC

You could replace the songs with the live versions in pinball browser, but you can't have both versions unfortunately.

AC/DC'S live jukebox is great, but why are you not able to play with the live music????

#16861 11 months ago

It’s simply not written into the game code for Metallica

#16862 11 months ago

Does anyone have any extras of the premium/LE plastics that are along both sides of the Playfield they would sell? I need the two plastics where the two spinners are. Thank you!

#16863 11 months ago

My Metallica has the jukebox feature. It's not live, but it plays all the songs.
It has to be turned on in service menu.

What is everyone using for sling and flipper rubber color? Thinking about orange for flippers and possibly slings, but not sure.

Clear rubbers look slick. I have orange flipper rubbers.

#16866 11 months ago

I have orange and love it.

New owner here (monster premium), amazing machine, a quick new owner question. I've only played this in bars so never really noticed this before, but those LED flashers behind the tombstone, wow. I'm seeing spots after they're blinking for a while. Not sure if there's mod that sits in front of them or anywhere between them and my line of sight, or how you've dealt with this. I have to look slightly away when they're flashing.

When I got my game, i glued some colored gels to a piece of Plexi and rigged it in front of the bulb. This way, it shined a subdued blue towards the player, but white up thru the plastic above. Now they have those flex bulbs you can throw in there to aim the light away. That drove me crazy too.

I changed out the flashers to orange and red.

Noticed you are in Leominster, will be there Thanksgiving week at our new location doing inventory.

I did dark blue for slings and posts. Black for the flipper as I put on the bony flipper bats.

When I installed the rising cross mod I made a little cutout of the LE artwork to fit in behind there to filter the bright light. You can see it in this video:

#16873 11 months ago

This would have to be up there for one of the most coolest things Stern Pinball has ever done !

https://www.pinballnews.com/games/metallica/index6.html

Kudos to Martin for the dedication and excellent detail.

Now if there was any way Stern Pinball could swing this extra 2 song vote deal for AC/DC and IMDN, could be one of the most amazing promotional tools for pinball for sure.

#16874 11 months ago

I'll never understand the decision to not include "Hit the Lights" in a game where the objective is to literally hit the lights. Major missed opportunity. (Also Kill em all is my favorite album and got one track. Stupid Black album)

#16875 11 months ago

My playlist does not include end of the line

#16876 11 months ago

End of the line is unlocked as a selectable song when you get to the end of the line mode

It’s available to select in attract mode also.

Wow, that's perfect. I'm not exactly sure what you mean by cutout though. You printed something yourself and then cut it to size? If so, what type of paper did you print it on and how did you get it to stay back there? I'm really interested to try your method, thanks.

Quoted from Graysonsdad:

You and me both. And we might be the only two. One day I'm going to change all the songs to nothing but tracks from Kill 'Em All and Ride the Lightning.

Yup..he is busy as an artist in a calgary studio (like painting and shit!) But still hit him up! I sent a new Metallica owner his way tonight for a custom Seattle Seahawk sparky!! Send him a PM !

I just found a pic of the side art of the LE and sized it to fit the position, then laminated and hot glued the side arm bits into position. I have a couple of extras left if you can’t be bothered making one, just send me a PM.

Orange rubbers all day for the lower half of the playfield at least. Secondly, swapping the bats and posts to black brings it all together IMHO.

#16886 11 months ago

Love the orange, pardon my ignorance, but where are you guys getting rubbers from?

That's my exact same setup, too.

#16890 11 months ago

I think i need new flipper bats and rubbers now dammit

#16891 11 months ago

Even though I took these off and put them on my TWD, I still like the SS boney flippers on MET best.

Quoted from Bigbossfan:

Was just gonna start a game (played last night with no problem). Turn it on......and all I hear is the sound of the post inside the coffin, going up and down. There's a ball in there. Fiddled around a bit trying to get it out, now have this error. "Device Malfunction Coffin Lockup".
Any suggestions folks??

[quoted image]

Hello! I am having the same issue, any advice, thank you!!

#16894 11 months ago

Damm divertor post sometimes worked and sometimes didn’t. Wires were connected to coil but closer inspection revealed a small break in solder connection.

#16895 11 months ago
Quoted from HectorCM:

Sounds like maybe the ball is magnetized?

#16896 11 months ago
Quoted from Meegis:

Something is tripping the switch. Have you gone into switch test mode to see what's active?

Having the exact same error and when I go into switches Opto #3 is active to start the game. Any clue how to clear it and fix? Thanks, Jay

If you beat me in my house to much I start tell people they have to start paying for games. Seems to work you could try that.
