I really like my Iron maiden, rules are fun, but it’s a drain monster... not for everyone...

#120 1 year ago

That's funny... I assume most people didn't pass enought time on Iron maiden and Viper to really appraciate it.

I have both in my home and you have to understand the rules and the game need to be tune all right to enjoy it. I don't think many poeple past enought time on iron maiden to appraciate...

I will post it here also... already post it on the Nineball discussion...

I have a probleme with my start button... If all the drop on the right bank drop target are down, when I press the start button... the game reboot. If a one, two or all drop traget are up... I can start the game and everything work like it should...

Already change the diode on the start switch, all drop target, tilt and slam switch. I also change the switch itself. I check closely for any short on the coin door.

If I goes in test switch mode, the # associated with the start button is Ok, idem if I check it with all the drop down...

Finally, if i touch the tilt switch or slam switch, the game reboot.

Any idea

#1065 9 months ago

as soon as one of the drop are up... it work

#1067 9 months ago
Quoted from dothedoo:

I would double-check the diode on the top drop target for a short. Disconnect the diode on the bottom drop and see if your problems go away. If not, the problem is probably somewhere in the coin door.

I will double check, but i change all the diode yesterday and nothing change

Quoted from brandsilence:

Picked up a Dracula recently and got it up and running - fun game i can't wait to shop out and get humming. I asked my son (7) what he thought of it after his first several plays and he said "yeah it's pretty fun i think i like the shots but what's 'dracula' about it?"
I think it's because it sounds like a space battle theme.
Setting complete historical purity aside for a moment - has anyone ever modded a stern of this era to play alternate sounds? I'm thinking about how cool it could be to replace the sounds with something more melodic, minor, and "Dracula" sounding. Using same lengths and triggers and true-to-era electronic sounds.
Anybody ever do this kind of thing?

I did it with a Bally projet couple years ago
