I will take some video clips so you can see what I mean. I am not that great with terminology. It does it with the auto plunge, it will hit force targets and then go right out the side lane, it will hit a side bumper by the flipper and just go right out the side lane. Once again, I am a beginner, but the pro machines I have played at arcades don't see to do this, so I have to be missing something.

Just as an FYI, I loved pinball as a kid in the 80's and now finally have money as an adult to buy NIB machines. I am really just learning as I am going along here with this hobby. Started going to conventions, watching YouTube channels and such to gain knowledge.

So this actually had underside playfield service rails and my pro has what looks like Popsicle sticks ? Seriously ???

They switched to rails for all pro games released after Iron Maiden.

I wonder if KME had input on this since it was his game where this behavior changed? The pegs were one of the most awful, cheap ass, cost cutting designs ever seen in pinball.

You are right its all KME on that. mollyspub you can buy the rails from Pinball Life for $55.

I thought he said it was a coincidence that it was his game, and that they'd been planning to switch back before he arrived

No, I believe it was the opposite. He said in an interview that he was pushing for it. Don't remember the podcast. Maybe H2H or Slam Tilt around the Iron Maiden launch timeframe?

Thanks for the heads up but these should have come with the game from day one.
Along with a metal apron !

I'm glad they did this. The pegs sucked. To me it makes sense to make all the games the same anyway. The more rails you buy, the cheaper they are. Just put them everywhere! I'm still glad they stuck with the latches instead of the levers for the lock bar. I like those a lot better now after having them for a while. And I also like the metal heads with the small bolts instead of the coffin locks a lot better.

They're nicer but I really worry what happens when those welded in threads go bad. I've seen two games now with damaged threads that had to be chased :/

Quoted from Mnluz:

I know the feeling
On the fist month I was almost giving up on it, and them took the time to do the necessary adjustments to make it enjoyable and if it did not work I would trade for something else. It is very sensitive to adjustments, much different them any other pin I every owned.
- Pitch to 6.5
- Bend the metal on the exit next to Right scoop to avoid STDM return
- Adjust the inner loop to reduce STDM
- Loose the tilt a bit
- when recently waxed I play with the coil adjustment on soft, them back to normal with a couple of says of playing.
- removed perfect play silicon on the flippers and added titan
It is a completely different pin right now, still Brutal but "enjoyable brutal" Got to 9 bi and it is my go to pin for a faster and shorter game.

How did you "adjust" the inner loop? My Premium goes SDTM too often shooting left inner loop and exiting right inner loop.

Does anybody have an idea what it might cost to buy Brand new Premium playfield?

What is the expected price range for modern Stern playfields?

#7564 8 days ago

Finally blew up the Death Star via the purple Destroy the Death Star route, granted I stacked an add a ball but immediately following victory multi ball had tie fighter multi kick in... Man talk about intense, I think at this time I was just shooting flipper/ball position for known shots and barely glancing up.. crazy fun

#7565 4 days ago

Does anyone else have this issue in Standard Adjustments? It goes from #5 standard adjustment being selectable, then jumps to #11? Cannot find standard adjustments #6, #7, #8, #9 and #10???

I wanted to adjust sling power, but it appears that adjustment is totally missing. Anyone else find this missing under S.P.I. Standard adjustment menu?

Picked up 2 series of Star Wars metallic cards at a estate sale. Thought Id give this a try.

Has anyone had the issue where during start of Tie Fighter multiball, it ejects two balls into the trough at once instead of one? Ideas as to what it could be?

Does it still end up with the proper number of balls in play? I've had that in multiple multiballs.

Yes, it does. Just tried to launch two at once instead of sequentially.

Does anyone have descriptions of what each mode install does like Directors Cut, Add a ball, etc? There's nothing in the manual.

So with the topper being a complete joke, I’ve found myself looking for an alternative. I was at Disneyland last week and picked up two of the hand-build lightsabers from Star Wars land there. They’re awesome. I was hoping to use them as a topper. Has anyone tried this before?

I was especially hoping I could tie it into the power supply and have them turn on when the game is turned on.

Thoughts?

I too have thought about doing this. It would be a cool topper. I’ll keep lurking this thread hoping some innovative person forgives this out.

#7573 3 days ago

Will there be another code update? What happened to Midnight Madness?

Hard to photograph, but here’s the idea. It’s much longer than it appears. Foreshortening.

That’s what she said...

Oh yeah. Prizes for taking me off the leaderboard at a recent pinball night in the basement.

Ha! I may have to try that with my kids! Great idea.

I don’t think those things mean much of anything nowadays. Vestiges of a bygone age.

Some older games the designer changed the rules to their liking for “Directors Cut”.

If it does anything, add a ball will add another ball to your game, like a extra ball, when determined scores or special is achieved.

#7580 3 days ago

Check the readme for the code updates. The installs drive a bunch of settings so you will have to see what the changes from factory are by going through the settings. Should not take long since the changed settings will be marked as changed. This is the only mention in the current readme:

Added overrides to the HOME and DIRECTORS CUT INSTALL options:
- PLAY MUSIC IN ATTRACT MODE - YES
- PLAY AUDIO IN ATTRACT CLIPS - YES
- FLIPPERS END BONUS SOUNDS - NO
- FREE PLAY - YES
- HSTD INITIALS - 10 LETTER NAME

Thanks--that's all I could find, too.

I’m looking to leave the club to get a new/different game. Anyone looking for a nicely modded pro? NYC suburbs.

It's easy enough to see what they do by flipping through the adjustments menu after installing. I am curious now myself
