So where can I buy an eyeball sticker for the coffin without getting ripped off?
I love the do it yourself skull mod!!! But, what is a score card? Where would I find that? I wanna make one of these for myself now!
Okay, I'm still a noob to this game. What do the three lights in from of the piston shot (behind fuel), represent?
So anyone wanna chime in on the total light show mod for metallica pro? I've watched videos and it seems like the lights go back a LOT. Almost too much. Also it seems like every shot is a celebration. I wanted this, but now I'm unsure. Can I get some people's thoughts on this?
Okay. Thanks for the answer!!! I am excited to do it. Seems like a lot of work but that's part of the fun.
Quoted from shelby1000:
Ok so now I've been hearing about potential playfield issues with Metallaca? Does anybody have any info on this as to what they are and which ones are likely to have them? Or if it something that is really a non-issue. There doesn't seem to be too many people mentioning this for Metallica compared to others like Ghostbusters but I want to make sure. I'm getting ready to purchase a NIB Metallica Premium soon and don't want any negative surprises.
I just got mine, and the build date is June 2017. I will let anyone here know if mine start to ghost or what not.
So what's the deal with the option menu where it asks "select music on plunge "yes/no", but no matter what you set it changes NOTHING?
Quoted from gliebig:
I just picked up a MET prem this weekend. I have maybe only put a handful of games on it at shows and didn't have time to play it much this weekend.
Couple of questions from the lil bit of time I played yesterday:
What do the red/blue changing inserts mean?
What are the amber snake inserts for?
What are the cross inserts for?
I noticed when shooting the orbits, many times the shot gets blocked by that post that sticks up behind Sparky. Is that normal?
Is there a way to tone down the shaker? When Sparky gets zapped and the hammer strikes, the shaker is a bit too strong and rattles a bit.
Holy crap dude, read the rules of the game. It would take forever to explain your questions without bringing up 5 other rules pertaining to the system.
Man, I can't get enough of this game. It seems that every game I'm always one shot away from starting something amazing. It's the most "one more game" pin I've ever played. Some said it was wood chopping, bit once you get going, things fall into place in a hurry.
My 10 year old loves video games. But he's been getting into pinball on his own now. I'm surprised. He does video game reviews on his channel and he asked me last night if he could make one for Metallica! So of course I said yes
I attached a pic of how we recorded it. We taped his phone to the ceiling. Lol
So what's with IAMDARRAS? He's the guy that sells the eyeball sticker for the Pro coffin. He QUICKLY replied to me when I asked if he still sold it, but has not replied to me since then. Is he the world's biggest dick or what? Anyone buy one of these from him and actually heard back from him? Should I cancel my paypal with him or keep waiting? It's been a week now.
That's a shame, as I really want that. But it's been 9 days since I sent him money. Like, alright already. Not a single message back is SHIT customer service.
After receiving no contact of any kind from him for over two weeks, this just quietly showed up from iamdarras today. Not good customer service at all, but the man finally followed through.
Anyone here watch straight down the middle on YouTube? These guys (mostly Zach) don't like this game very much. I find it mind blowing, as this is one of my all time favorites. And yet, he loves crappy Ghostbusters. It's like I'm taking crazy pills or something.
I have it. It is INCREDIBLE. It sounds like you didn't hook some of the wires up correctly in the back box. Refollow the video steps to see what went wrong.
EDIT: oops. I see what happened. Sorry man. Seriously, with this mod, I honest to god see no reason why you'd spend an extra 2k for the premium. It just doesn't make sense.
I did the LED version because I didn't like how far back the LCD sits away form the screen. I posted the video earlier in this thread.
A great first pin. Honestly, it may spoil you. The game is so so good and has tons of ways to play it.
So has anyone gotten the diverter to actually work from the left loop so it drops onto the pops yet? Mine works once every 20 times.
I took the sleeve off to help "deaden" the ball, but no luck.
When I said I took the sleeve off, I meant I put a metal one in there. It did jack shit for me. Surely there's more to it than that, as metal didn't make a bit of difference.
As for bending the coil bracket, do you mean so that it comes out at an angle?
Nobody is debating. I replaced it with a metal post and it didn't work.
Edit: I bent the coil bracket and its working a lit more consistently now. Not perfect and a little clunky of a mechanic, but it's working now.
I hate this game and then love it. I had an amazing game and I love it all over again. I either get destroyed or do super well... there is no middle ground who this machine for me.
Sincerely think the rules are fantastic. The playfield sorta sucks, if you really think about it. It's what Lyman did with the rules that makes the game.
Do we have to update our color dmds too or does this work? Anyone have a color dmd and the newest code?
Edit: I see this was already asked. For those that have the total light show mod on their pros, I guess I'm gonna be a genuine pig for you guys, too. Currently updating and I'll report back to you guys if it fucks anything up.
Updated. I have a pro with a color dmd and timebandit's total lightshow mod. So far, everything is perfect. So if you're thinking of upgrading, do it. I see no ill effects so far. I did fade to black and the lightshow mod still fades the lights as before. The end of ball bonus still lights like a premium. All is well. Color dmd looks the same so far.
There's my report
So more observations.
Is this a glitch? I've hit the piston target (dead end) shot a few times in a row, and the game doesn't actually update it. I hit it, is says "you hit it four times," I hit it again, and it still says "you hit it four times." I notice this when I was trying to get the extra ball for 15 dead ends, and it kept saying 12, 12, 12, 12.... finally, after (what I believe was) 16 hits, it finally gave the the "collect extra ball" callout to cash in. I wonder what has changed? Does it have to be ended with a combo to collect all the dead end shots? I also didn't notice any 2x dead end collections when you hit a ton of pops? Is this a glitch or is this a new.... feature?
Color DMD and light show mod still working great, BTW!!! This game is so good.
Quoted from Jakers:
The usb stick isn’t even in the game yet, although I’ve tried every combination of usb stick in/out and power cycle methods. It locks up every time.
Put the usb stick in, flip dip switch 8, update, take out usb, flip dip switch 8 off.
Is it the order you're doing it?
Quoted from nitrojcrawf:
Leaving the group guys! Replacing with a Dialed in and Iron Maiden. The day I knocked game down new code comes out... go figure. Maybe, I need to that to Ghost Busters too.
You're missing out. Those are both amazing games too. Ran out of room?
Jesus, you guys are getting some crazy good scores. My previous high score was 450 mil or some weak ass crap.
I've plugged away at this game with the new software and have determined you guys are better than me lol. I still find the game somewhat difficult and haven't gotten past my 3rd CIU. Glad to see the game doesnt have an impossible wizard mode now.
