Hi,

After having kept my x-men wolverine 4 years, I sold it yesterday (with regret)

I will take instead a spiderman vault

Can owners of the spiderman vault tell me if they are happy?

Are there any problems with the playfield as with the ghostbuster?

I found a seller pro who makes me a good price ... I can not wait to have it at home ...

SMVE had ghosting issues like GB did, but those issues seem to have been rectified. Most of the complaints about SMVE have been that the game has be done before and people want something fresher. If you are not in this mindset, SMVE is a good game to have.

Hello man

Got to remember this is an International website. The following is what was translated.

Me too I would like a Spider-Man Vault Edition without ghosting of course.

I personally prefer the earlier version of Spider-Man the call-outs are different the visuals are different and it plays from the theme referenced from the movies. If you liked your Wolverine X-Men a lot you'll probably like the Vault Edition it's cartoony with the call outs and the comic characters not the movie characters.

Best mod ever for SMVE is a ColorDMD. Check out the video preview on the webpage.

Yes, I love the new animations, I find them great ... for me it is better than the original (personal opinion)

Do we know the number of copies produced?

#10 1 year ago

I think SMVE is a great game. Owned both and prefer it over the original. Obviously both great, but SMVE has some pretty nice upgrades. Agree that a Color DMD is a must and get a piece of Stern HD glass too. Both great upgrades.

With that said my PF was really quite bad with ghosting out of the box. I took pictures sent them to Stern and was approved for a replacement playfield.

Quoted from IBARAKURO:

Not sure, but I imagine pretty low. Biggest reason is the MSRP when an original can be had for considerably less.

The game is based on Ultimate Spiderman cartoon. My son watches it. I prefer it over the original by far because of this. Game isnt anywhere near as deep coded as Xmen though. Xmen has more strategy and just more overall to do then SM. SM shoots alot better then Xmen though, at least better then the LE versions of Xmen.

#12 1 year ago

SMVE is pretty bad ass. Color dmd is a must must must, dots are crazy good but must must must be in color

I owned the original twice but just couldn't get past the movie theme, call outs, art, dots. Vault fixes all that and more.

Game Is easier than XMEN but has more breadth in the rules and scoring. I suggest removing the center drain post to help level out the rules vs difficulty.

Summer 2016 builds seemed to be the culprit of ghosting issues. Mines a NOV 2016 build with no real playfield or cabinet issues so if you buy new, shoot for a late 2016 or 2017 build.

I agree with you,
For me, the rules of xmen are as complex as the rules of the Lord.
I loved having the xmen.
Its fault, it is the shots that are sometimes difficult to succeed (beast, iceman, storm ...)
For the buddies who come to my house, the rules are too complex ...
On the other hand when you understand them, it is a great game for good players
I kept it 4 years, it's time for me to change ... I can not afford to keep all my games (unfortunately)

#14 1 year ago

This one could not be simpler.

SMVE is a good game, if you liked Spiderman before.
If you did not like Spiderman before, the changes will not make you change your mind.

My opinion: Spidey is one of Stern's best and deepest...if not hardest...titles yet.

you're not serious !?
this game is quite easy from factory, surelly to much easy in a home use

last time we get a SM at the DPO tournament in Netherlands, they've removed not only the center post, but also the 2 posts at the outlanes (than understand me, not open at max, completly removed !)

#17 1 year ago

Not sure if you've seen this, but it may help aid your decision:

#18 1 year ago

I love the game, probably my favorite of the Stern titles I have/had. Mine has ghosting and I've been told I'm on the list for replacement playfield.

I enjoy playing it all the time, love the rules.

Adjusting the difficulty for a game is not complicated ...
there are plenty of parameters that can be adjusted: slope, outlanes, duration of the saveball, obtaining extraballs ...

Each one adjusts as he likes, and that is what is good ... all my games are perfectly adjusted ... for me

Yes, I also find that it is one of the easiest to play (I do not say easy to finish) ... but it also comes from the awesome flow

#23 1 year ago

of course, great game for sure, nice code & flow
again, if i could, would get one with no doubt

#24 1 year ago

I found a spiderman vault HUO ... I hope to have it next week

#30 1 year ago

Congrats on getting SM!

SMVE is my favorite game.

Great flow. Ramps are buttery. Venom shot it satisfying and gives you 2 seconds to celebrate after hitting it compared to the quick flipping during the wrap shot on St. Wrap shot is fun, but I like Venom better. Love the AFM shot up the middle.

I feel Color dmd is one of the best out there. Xmen is really good also. I played TWD again last weekend and really liked that on also.

Long ball times but the game is so fun I don't want it to end. Enjoy it!

Sorry can't say about the vault, but SM is a great game. I owned red one for 18 months sold to get Tspp. But after 18 months I got SM back in my collection and really like it. Particularly because its rules are so easy, and I can get 70-90% of the way to BR on almost every game but only make it there except like 5% so there is always some tense moments where I'm on the edge and need to complete one mode or another. It's got a good balance of easy and hard to the rules.

That aspect reminds me of Tron in that it's simple to do yet hard (for me) to get to SOS and I've yet to be to Portal (or SH on Spiderman).

The rules and call outs make the game great. I'm not sure vault since the call outs are different but the dmd display animations are way better on the vault. I kind of dig the old game because of the movie quotes and the major actors like Willem DeFoe and JK Simmons etc.. the vault voices seems like XM voice actors which I was ok with, but give me movie quotes like IM, Tron, and SM when done right.

I'd prefer the vault being new and better lit, but I happened to find a old SM that was in 99% shape so the only thing I really need to work on is the LEDs. It was done by the prior owner but cheap old LEDs so I need to work on getting them all replaced.

Color DMD is great too, the main reason I sold the old SM was because the DMD was so bad before the color DMD was released.

You misunderstood...or I wrote it up wrong.
Spidey is a bit too easy was what I meant-

#33 1 year ago

Even the representation of the character figurines take after the comic. Venom looks so much more badass on the Vault Edition.

#34 1 year ago

Love this game! Get the color dmd and play the hell out of it....

Until you see the ColorDMD for the vault edition. One of the best colored displays done yet in my opinion.

#43 1 year ago

You mean these videos in color do not excite you at all?

#44 1 year ago

I have the color dmd and SMVE has to be one of the best. Great mod you can move from game to game anyway. Get one.

#45 1 year ago
