Just joined the club a couple days ago. Bought a used pro. One of the best games I've played!

#4410 4 years ago
Quoted from knockerlover:

Congrats! Just for laughs (due to another marketplace ad) will you share what you paid? Or.. if it was less then 4k

Yes, it was a couple hundred under 4k.
It was a sept 2013 model

Quoted from NightTrain:

Anyone know where I can get the DMD and speaker panel surround sticker that is on the LED version? I'd like to add that to my OG pro.

Same here, if you find them shoot me a message.

Quoted from chubtoad13:

Is the pro model supposed to have a flashing light on the grave marker? I believe it's supposed to light when multiball is ready.
I don't see a flasher in that area, but the flasher is in the menu and I watched a video where it happened on someone else's pro.

Its inside the cross, mine has come undone twice now. Looks like there is some glue to hold it, but it still comes undone.

Quoted from butterz:

New owner here. The best rules I found so far is here: http://www.pinballrevolution.com/threads/metallica-pro.3077/.
Quick question. The left orbit shot always seems to bounce back when I hit it. Is the rules you have to hit a ramp first to open the post?

Congrats! I see you are very close by. If I didnt own one myself, i would invite myself over to play. Haha

Does anyone have an issue of the ball getting stuck in the left orbit lane? If the ball is moving slow, it gets stuck.

#7457 3 years ago

Thanks, i will get to bending

#7476 3 years ago
Quoted from newpinbin:

Never. Mine just keeps getting stuck on the snakes lip/

Mine does that too, and also when it rests against the pop bumper.

#7761 3 years ago

Oh, i didnt realize they used different types

#7786 3 years ago

I bought this uncut monster translite to put in my pro, but wanted to know if it's a bad idea to cut this for value purposes?

Quoted from bigd1979:

Really? Never seen that? But your right anything can break in pinball. Ill take my chances i guess bc thats alot of money for a plastic figure. Id buy one for 50-100

I agree, a bit too much

Quoted from KornFreak28:

Wires are not pinched...I already made certain. I will however, check under the playfield as you suggest. I will do this after work today and report back. Thanks!!

Did you install the support brackets on a pro? Maybe they are hitting something inside the cab?

I tried changing the unforgiven to Dream no more, and it said i cant replace long files. Do i need to donate for it to work, or am i doing something wrong?

#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.

#10672 2 years ago

You can change the names also

Do you mean the light inside the cross?
If so, my light used to come out alot then i noticed a little bit of glue holds the light in place.

You should get the $5 skull insert instead

#11286 2 years ago

You will have to get both sides, so you dont have 3 on one side and 2 on the other

#13228 1 year ago

I think the led fits just like the one that comes out of it. The lcd sits back because it is larger then the back panel.

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

Quoted from TechnicalSteam:

The day has come. Where I am contemplating the sale of one of my treasured pins. MET PRO.
I own a Early Model, With Wooden Backbox, No LEDs, Snake Mod, and Shaker Motor.
The game is Documented Home USE only and about 2 years old.
What do you guys think it's worth?

Im in the same boat, had mine about 3 years and it doesn't get played as much as my others. I keep adding mods hoping it will spark something, cause i love the band so much. Too many other pins i want and not enough space.

I have once about a year ago, I've had the pin about 3 years now.

I might, but im pretty far from you.

#14066 1 year ago

Do you have a metal back box? I have a wood backbox with lcd and dont have any kind of shadow.

#14136 1 year ago

If you want to sell something, like a pinball machine, wouldn't you clean it first? I feel bad for that pin.
This is pics from an ad on ebay.

Quoted from PolePosition:

One more question - do you remove the factory Mylar before adding the playfield protector?

No, and you will need to raise the drop targets til they are flush with the protector.

Quoted from lazyfatdog:

So I'm waiting on delivery of my NIB Met Pro (unbelievably excited) and have been working my way through this thread. Mostly what I'm trying to figure out is, are there any mods that are strongly recommended for purchase/installation prior to setting up the pin?

Yes, all the ones you like. Lol

Welcome to the club!!

Quoted from Jeff_PHX_AZ:

Nice...what did you use to attach it to post, and link to where to buy? Also, I am not sure why you received negative down votes for this.

Cause it's a belt buckle on a pinball machine.

I have the whole set for sale, if I can get enough people that want specific plastics I would sell individually.
