Quoted from chuckwurt:

The game doesn’t shut off.
And don’t get there with an extra ball in your pocket and you’ll be fine.

Why ? What happens if you have an extra ball and reach that stage ?

Once you beat final showdown it skips snowball and you lose a ball.

#12803 4 days ago

If it helps, I’ve beaten final showdown 5 times (demo mouth kill every time), and I’ve never seen the bug.

I am having an issue with my lock.

While playing, the diverter arm/coil for the TK lock will just randomly fire as though a ball has traveled up the left ramp (even though the ball is on the main PF).

Where should I start looking? Opto issue?

Check the opto on the left ramp. It’s about half way up the ramp.

Me too. But I found a Pro kit and am using it for now.

Waitin on prem kit here since juneish? I think ..

Quoted from ThePinballFuries:

I see Stern released code updates for a bunch of games today. Nothing for Stranger Things. They either think they nailed it with the current code or they don't care enough about the game to update it.

I think they nailed it! Some of the games are getting a new mode. Ie. JP- Goat mode.

I got super excited when I seen all the games listed.

What do people do to fix this? When coming out of the target…maybe 1 in 25 of my balls will do the green path and straight down the middle which is frustrating

check to see if the ball stopper is hitting the ball on the way out. On some machines it's slamming into the ball not giving enough time to leave the area causing the ball to hit the rail and do that trajectory. There is no software adjustment but you can cut down the spring that returns the post to the up position. There is info in the thread on the modification.

Thank you so MUCH....any idea how far back it is?

Hey all, I ordered a pro and it is expected to come in in a couple of weeks. I went ahead and ordered a couple of accessories as well. The topper came in (I ordered from Gameroom Goodies) and it has about a 1/2 inch crack in the mirror and the box it came in was damaged as well. I saw a previous post here where there was much more severe damage but I was wondering if anyone had any advice? I immediately sent an email to Gameroom Goodies about this but I'm wondering if anyone else has any experience with this. The crack isn't THAT big but I don't want it to get worse with time and also....the thing is freakin' $700!

EDIT: Wow Gameroom Goodies got back to me immediately haha. They said I could send it in for a refund or they would send it to Stern for repair. I'm worried Stern is going to fix it and then send it to me again with crappy packaging...

Yeah I’ve been waiting on mine since June. Anyone know where I can find a premium/LE UV kit? When I ordered it, it said 4-6 weeks…

It’s been frustrating to hear of the delays with all of the Stern accessories, but the delays on the UV kit are downright maddening. The kit IMO directly affects the mood of the gameplay. The fact that owners of this game and loyal Stern customers have to wait many months for such a small component is just ridiculous. I firmly believe that the lack of UV kits directly affected the overall sales of this title. I would’ve gladly paid an upcharge for the kit to come preinstalled on the machine from the factory.

#12816 18 hours ago

Personally to me, the kit delay is what it is.. it’s not just stern, and even if it was if they had a choice right now between games going or kits - games make more sense. Crazy that some key component is delayed 5 months though.

1 blanket email from distributor and no replies to subsequent emails is more frustrating to me when the item is paid for.

Ordered mine in January and still no sign of it!

Looking to join the club and was made aware that Premiums are discontinued. For someone that has played or owned both is the gameplay very different between the two (pro vs premium)? Is it worth the hunt for a premium?

Thanks!

Pro plays better but the projector is cool. It is 100% not worth the current price difference.

Quoted from paulbaptise:

Yes, the projector and other features add quite a novelty to the premium. If I had to repeat the hunt, I would look for an LE. The purple armor on the LE is REALLY nice IMHO.

I see the wait on UV kits is crazy and my bigger concern is when that projector goes out. Unless you have a pro, you cannot play the game if your projector goes out. Any word if Stern has replacements?

You can 100% play this game with no projector. Yes. Stern has replacements.
