I am a member! Met Pro LED just arrived...

Quoted from MMP:
The Aurium cards are nice for everything he's done.

Thanks, I have a hard time reading the font on those cards. The black bats with yellow flipper rubbers on your game look sweet.
Quoted from bushz:
I decided to order mine today. Only problem. I have to wait until I come back from vacation to get it. Gonna be a long wait but time to get what I need. I already have the sparky protector. I need to order the cliffy for the mystery scoop. I was going to get leg protectors but was told the new Sterns don't need them, is that true? I need to get a magnet protector too, right? What else do I NEED to get before I push start? I have a list of WANT items, but I need to start with the protection items first. I appreciate your input.
The most important thing to do before pressing start is throw away the balls that Stern sends you and replace with quality ones!
Quoted from TOK:
Its just little tweaks, I don't think I would have noticed if I hadn't read the changes. I'm still very happy they're honing the game to perfection!
Seek & Destroy mode has been changed so it now awards 1 cross,
1 snake, and 1 electric chair each time one of the main shots (left
loop, cross lane, left ramp, right ramp, right loop) is made when
lit. This allows progress towards lighting "Crank It Up" during
Seek & Destroy. This rule change also solves the problem of not
being able to light the snake to collect SNAKE letters during
Seek & Destroy, since only a shot on the playfield would allow this.
- Boosted Seek & Destroy scores from 750k to 1M (seek shot) and 375k
to 500k (regular shot).
* This is actually a big deal*
Awesome game just got better!
Quoted from Taygeta:
While I still love my IM, after digging into the Ruleset (thanks Aurich for linking to the great write up), Metallica has become my favorite Stern.
May be trading my favorite pin of all time (my immaculate TZ) for a MOPLE. I never saw this coming. Metallica is a hell of a game. And I don't even care for the band that much!
Quoted from DadofTwins:
Help please. Anyone here have a Met pro LED with a color DMD installed? Would you be willing to post/send me pictures of the backside of the display. Thanks!
Does this help?
Quoted from HoakyPoaky:
Curious....anyone know what the default setting is for the sling strength? Or what people have set theirs at? I know the snake & mystery scoop strength can be adjusted as well. I'm just curious if I should turn mine up. I don't want them too strong that they might do potential damage.
If I remember... default is 32? I have mine turned down to 20 which feels perfect to me. Default was too strong.
Quoted from Jeff_PHX_AZ:
Man, want to hook up Pin Sub kit from Pinnovators and not sure what these big white boxes are, and looks like my subwoofer wires ( black and red wires) on the left coming out of the "power" plug. Shouldn't they be plugged into the " audio" plug on the board? What is this contraption here, and how do I get Lorenzo's sub kit hooked up? Thanks
Quoted from Jeff_PHX_AZ:
Just ordered the colordmd for my premium.
Also noticed new update as well. Anything to be aware of on the installation? What settings should be set at, isn't there different options? If so what the best settings?
Installation is pretty straight forward on sam. Follow the instructions and you will be fine.
Some people like the Hires and others like the dots. I have mine set on dotxl with factory contrast and backlight.
Play around with it and see what you like best.
Quoted from Buzz:
Just got home and checked the magnet it seems to be a little high. I'm going to work on trying to get it flush this weekend. I know with a Cliffy I will no longer see it, but the fact that it is HUO and I'm the original owner kinda rubs me the wrong way. I have older Sterns with more plays and no wear, as well as newer Stern with no wear. also my head decals are falling off. So to have payed as much as someone with none of these issues seems a little wrong not just no big deal.
I had to replace my head decals as well... not a hard job at all. I used the "wet" method using rapid tac and it came out great with no air bubbles. Contact your distributor and they should be able to get Stern to send you new decals.
Quoted from Buzz:
Thank you again everyone. Head decals are being sent out to me. I watched a video about the magnet adjustment , so I think I should ok. With the wet method for the decals did you use a squeegee or something else? I also did not know the sickness of this hobby could be so strong. Collection was only going to be a couple at first. Many learning curves to owning and trying to fix stuff
Small squeegee to get the rapid tac out. Or, I have seen someone use a credit card wrapped with a tee shirt so the decals don't get scratched.
Quoted from Gryszzz:
Ok guys...my led in my left spotlight keeps coming out mid-game. Can I put a small amount of glue on side of led to prevent this ? If not, how do I fix ? Like the 4th time its happened. Not a big deal ; just annoying.
Bend the two wires out and put a small cut down piece of electrical tape around the base. Bend wires back and reinstall.
