Quoted from vireland:

Prem/LE demogorgan shakes kind of like Munsters Herman.
Isn't Steve in one of the shots in bullshit mode?
UV kit is supposed to be available in March, but I'd preorder if you haven't already. Might be the last run.

Thanks, do you know what website is taking uv kit pre orders?

Quoted from Joeymonkey:

This is why I love this thread. A lot of Pinside is people arguing about what pinball company they like better of people being snarky to each other but everyone here is always offering help and encouragement. So glad I chose this machine and I came here to learn more about it. Thanks everyone!

Just don't mention that you like Stranger Things outside of this thread on Pinside. You will experience the wrath of the "consensus Pinsiders".

I heard cointaker was, but don't know that firsthand.

You might want to email terry @ pinballlife.com and ask if he will order one for you. I get pretty much all my special order stuff (even the weird/offbeat stern parts) through him and he's great.

#8105 12 days ago

I’m a Steve fan as well. His call outs are very limited but there are a few.

#8106 12 days ago

Hello everyone, we will soon have a complete set of Black Diamond material for the projection surfaces. For this purpose, all white surfaces from STERN are removed. Our Black Diamond Set is laminated on the back with double-sided adhesive film and on the front with a protective film. Further details will follow soon . Regards, Benjamin

What is the material Stern uses for the ramps and screen. It seems thick and very durable.

I have a cricut vinyl cutting machine and was going to see if that material is available for sale.

#8108 12 days ago
Quoted from nicoy3k:

Hi guys considering a pro and have a few questions
- what are the differences between the pro and prem demogorgan? Does the pro demo register hits outside the hole or only direct shots to the hole?
- is Steve in this game? He’s by far my favorite character and would love to have some Steve call outs/video clips
- any idea when the UV kit will be available again? Seems sold out everywhere
- any downside to using the premium UV kit on a pro? I read something about soldering additional leds- is that needed?
- will cleland continue to support this game for future updates? The sound mod is a must have for me
Thanks

I think the rest of your questions were answered, but as far as the premium UV kit on a pro, no downside there. It's a free upgrade to the much nicer looking metal apron. Soldering LEDs to light up the windows is completely optional. If you do not do it, they will just not light up. Even not lit, it's nicer looking than the pro apron. That said, it's super easy to light them. Grab a couple short LED strips from Comet and tie them to the closest GI bulb. You could use alligator clips if you can't solder (but if you own pins you really should learn how at some point).

Quoted from Joeymonkey:

Thanks guys, I’m going to mess around with this. Always learning something new. I’m embarrassed to admit this, but today was my first time getting Total Isolation. This game is soooo good!! Can’t believe I almost passed it over.

As others have said, no need to be embarrassed! It takes a lot of practice to be able to put up big scores and make a lot of progression. Pinball is not an easy skill by any means. Keep at it, and you'll get there.

The way the code builds to different "checkpoints" is awesome. No matter what your skill level is, there is a wizard mode for you, plus more to look forward to as you improve. Or if you are a really good player, but having a bad game or off day, chances are you can still feel like you accomplished something. Not many games are this rewarding for every skill level. My daughter can get to the first TI on a good day. I can usually get to the second one, and on a really good day maybe Send It Back and/or Light the Fire. I haven't quite put everything together and made it to Final Showdown yet, but it's been close (I did it before FS was in the code, but not since, go figure, LOL). I know I will get there eventually, and even when I do, I know there is still Snowball to look forward to once I actually beat it. And for those days I can't even make it to TI2, well TI1 is still a pretty cool accomplishment and I do not walk away feeling totally defeated. That is just good coding.

I also love that if modes are kicking my butt, I can just concentrate on Demogorgans or Demodogs and still have a really rewarding game. Even if you ignore everything else, getting to Can't Stop This or even Run Will is a pretty big, and very satisfying, accomplishment. Heck, for some people killing one Demogorgan is a big deal, and that's ok! The game still makes you feel like a rockstar for doing it. And that's what it's all about.

I've said it before, but this is definitely Lonnie's best code, and it isn't even close. Few other games reward all levels of play so well.

Will you have these for sale? Looks like a fantastic installation. They grey material looks much better when the screen is off as well. I would be interested to see how it looks in a light controlled room or in the evening with no ambient light.

Also, how did you mount your hopper truck? I have one sitting in my cabinet. I like your location as opposed to the back right corner. I have the Billy's car as well and they seem to balance themselves out.

Good stuff!

Given the discussion on reflective materials/angle issues on the previous page, I would to see the black diamond material compared to the cricut silver. I would especially like to see video from the player's perspective. I personally don't play while resting my head on the lockbar, which is the angle you have in your video.

I also forgot to mention that my games are set for 5 balls. haha

One of my favourite things that I discovered last week is there is a setting in the menu where you can hold down the left flipper & start button at the same time and the game will reset. Probably not needed as often for the majority of people that use 3 balls but if I have a crappy game going I would rather restart then finish all the balls. Sometime's I will practice certain shots or flipper passes but I the majority of times I restart and try again. I don't recall where it is in the adjustments menu but if you scroll through, you will find it.

We tested a lot of slides. It has been shown that the Black Diamond material is the best solution. More professional videos will follow. The viewing angle is very good from all positions with the Black Diamond material, no comparison to the original film.

More details will follow soon.....

The set will be available to buy soon. There will be a complete set for all white areas with extra targets stickers. More details will follow soon.

I assembled the Hopper and Billy car with a sheet metal. The cars each have a hole at the bottom where the sheet metal is fastened with one screw and the other screw is attached to the ramp. I'll take a picture of it next time .

The cars are getting hard to find on amazon and not generally in the sub $10 price range. I've seen them at Walmart locally but that was a number of months ago when they had the Stranger Things displays up.

If someone has any SI Black Diamond 1.4 to sell me that I could compare with (even just 2"x4" or so), I'd gladly test it against the Cricut silver and report here.

Most video and such I've seen of the Black Diamond has indeed been from an advantageous angle, and nothing I've seen of the Black Diamond has looked obviously better in video than what I've seen with the Cricut silver, but the Black Diamond could be promising, and I'm certainly curious to see them side by side in person.

Note: I have no intention to sell any screen mods for the game, nor have plans to develop any mods for Stranger Things.

Just sharing my findings for a cheap, DIY option, and interested in what others have experimented with.

Added 9 days ago:

No longer recommending the Cricut silver (too much shimmer when fully installed). Have more materials coming to test soon.

#8133 11 days ago

Ordered Billy’s Camaro from Target $14.99 and Hopper’s Blazer at Walmart $12.99. My wife thought it was a great idea to add them to the game.

#8135 11 days ago

The cars have a plastic mount that they come on in the packaging. I used a clear command strip to mount mine using that packaging mount. Non permanent and does no damage to the clear ramps. Just another option

Same. Found out Stern is done making them and a distributor bought out the last few in stock. Not a lot of prem/LE out there so took the NIB plunge.

When I'm not working on pins these days I'm usually messing with the trains (which is also a really expensive hobby btw. Pins take it though). Hopper and Billy have been hanging out on the table for the last few months while I've been having to do all the work with those optos. Hoping to get them back on the machine soon. I do miss them being there when I play.

I had email exchanges with him. When I asked when I could have my friend come by to check it out (who lives in Portland) he stopped responding. I think he has posted the same pics with different locations. As pointed out previously, the pics were taken from an ad right here on Pinside.
