I think I have a good handle on the new mystery target rules.

If all the mode shots are at the same point it will award you the left ramp first then right orbit if left ramp is already completed.

Lets say you are one away from starting the right ramp mode and you hit the target, it will spot that one. It will spot the mode shot that’s closest to starting a mode.

Once you’ve played two modes it stops spotting shots even if you haven’t Hit the target at all.

Not sure if this resets after total isolation or not.

#3052 9 months ago
Quoted from jurulz:

Yep they are planning one, on one of twitch stream someone ask him the question and according to Brian Eddy a pretty cool one is coming

Something like the AFMrLE topper could be really cool

#3053 9 months ago

Got my pro yesterday and Im liking it!

I had an idea for Tk multiball:
If you shoot the left ramp it locks the ball and then the super jackpot shot turns into a roving shot. That would make the locked ball on the ramp make more sense and would make the super a little more interesting and worth more if you hit it. And like afm super jackpots

If you shoot the left saucer without shooting the left ramp first, its just s base super like normal.

#3054 9 months ago

I think the TK MB rules can be improved as well. Need to be able to get the 2x and 3x scoring on the LE before and after the super is lit. Like groot in guardians.

I like the roving super idea too. Just like AFM.

#3055 9 months ago

Stern will most likely have a topper as well, just nothing released yet.

#3056 9 months ago

Someone mentioned the animations being out of sync with the audio. I’m pretty sure they fixed that in .87. All the modes I watched it was in sync (monster hunters, bullies, Mirkwood)

#3057 9 months ago

Found this sticker on my Stranger Things. Anyone else?

Yep we all have it. Goodies the code name for stranger things. Stern has a code name for all their games.

JP - JAWS
GOTG - furry hats

#3059 9 months ago

Got it! I just found Goonies interesting!

#3060 9 months ago

Anywhere to buy the UV kit that is still shipping? Looking for a LE/Premium kit.

#3061 9 months ago
Quoted from chuckwurt:

That sucks! How is your ramp clunky?

The ball never travels cleanly up and around the right ramp. When I get a chance I’m gonna fiddle with the targets at the opening of the ramp. I think the ball may be grazing the targets just enough to effect travel.

That will happen when you miss the shot.

I thought I was the only one that missed a lot until I watched your stream! Got eem!

True story. I’m about to rip the right ramp especially out of my game and burn it in the back yard.

I bought mine from Stern's website. It works great!

Lol. That’s part of what makes the game so great. A certain level of frustration like TWD

I wanted to take a sledgehammer to that game so many times early on!

Time to update code and get some play on this weekend

#3072 9 months ago

If you’re a big fan of the show the callouts they added to the modes in this not recent update are great.

#3074 9 months ago

Ok can someone with a newer game confirm if their ramp screen looks like this with the hole punch outs in the screen where the rivets are. This is the replacement ramp/decal that Stern sent me. It seriously doesn't have holes in the screen on any other ones does it?
IMG_20200404_212458 (resized).jpg

#3075 9 months ago

There’s probably the one with holes for the rivets to make the surface completely flat. Then another white sticker that goes over it that’s all white with no holes. Just like the spot targets. Two separate stickers.

#3076 9 months ago
Quoted from chuckwurt:

That’s should be it dude. Congrats! Let’s get a heads up stream rolling soon!

let me know when I'm plus 6 hours from you.

Can we somehow combine the ST posts to one thread?

Well that is what they sent me so I don't think so, that is the decal that was given to apply to the ramp. No separate decal to cover the holes.

Quoted from bemmett:

Well didn’t you get a full sheet of other decals too? So are there ones with a hole in the middle of them for the stand ups? Did those come with the secondary decal that covers the whole target? If so, you kit my not be complete. Especially if there are no instructions.

Also just checked my game. There’s definitely two decals. The thicker one that goes on the metal then the thinner one that covers up the first one to make it an all white panel.

At least that’s how mine looks.

What's the difference in the newer ramp? I have a game premium from the first week of March. I could check mine.

#3081 9 months ago

Just some random thoughts I noticed a couple times when I nail the mystery shot it can trigger the demogorgon also sometimes it would count as left ramp & outer left modes

Also that feeling when you trigger 2x scoring, upside down comes on and the ball immediately drains on you

I turned off free play because I am playing too many games, charging myself a quarter per play.

My favorite is when Find Barb comes on during upside down, the lit arrows look sweet with the UV lighting.

#3082 9 months ago
Quoted from Makarov:

Mystery shot is supposed to do that on the new code. If you have completed fewer than 2 modes it slots mode shots to help you start them. Not sure why it would register the demogorgon. Not supposed to do that.

#3083 9 months ago

Good to know about the mystery shot, I actually like that change

One other thing I noticed a ball actually telekinesis locked while lock was not lit, after a few seconds the magnet pulled back and dropped it, haven't seen that before

#3084 9 months ago

Anyone else feel like they are shopping at a trendy store in the mall when the Operation Mirkwood music starts playing?

Strange choice

I noticed on the new code I started multiball without locking the third ball. Not sure if that’s a bug or a switch issue. Only seen it happen once though.

#3086 9 months ago

I just watched some of you latest stream Chuck and i'm baffled at how you get that ball return to the right flipper from the right loop!

Gonna have to go tinker with it again, it almost seems like my right sling position is misaligned somehow. I don't know . Would be nice to have a little control off that right feed.

Maybe i'll try a thinner post rubber.

Make sure the ball is bouncing off the shooter lane gate when it comes off the ball guide. That should send it to the flipper better. If the feed is right it won’t touch that post.

Hey- I still can’t get the damn right loop to go to flipper either. Just bounces around like crazy. Please let me know if you find anything and I will do the same.

#3091 9 months ago

I'm loving my Stranger Things Premium. It's an amazing game and its good to see the nonbuying detractors die down a bit. The sound package is amazing!

I'm running the new code .87, but had my first game reset today. I had the Collect Quarters mode going and started TK multiball in a stack. Somehow, in the frenzy, the game kind of rebooted.

#3092 9 months ago
Quoted from beelzeboob:

the angle people are taking pictures are straight-on as well

I've compared some streamers games and I think the Black Diamond stands out, even at an "angle". Sorry about the echo, I'm a noob streamer (and player)... https://www.twitch.tv/videos/584577518

What do you mean kinda? Send your issue to

bug.report@sternpinball.com

So they are aware of it. Try and explain the circumstances that led to the reset as best you can.

#3094 9 months ago

I replaced my pro apron with a premium all metal apron a few nights ago. It was super easy and didn’t require any modification to the playfield other than adding two light sockets to light up the two corners.

The only thing I had to find was two screws to attach to the front.

Pro owners are you happy with your decision or is premium the way to go?

#3097 9 months ago
Quoted from bellbrand:

Well the good thing is the FULL game is there in the pro, no missing modes or stuff like that. With that said, i could not imagine this game without the projector, however that is just me. Also have to ask if you are someone to likes to take time and tweek machines, the premium takes some tweeking with the TK lock.

#3098 9 months ago

I think i hit a bug yesterday where it awarded me two extra balls when really only lit one. Was in the mode save will, started upside down with save will running, extra ball lit (was not previously lit) hit extra ball shot and it did the extra ball animation. Upside down continued to count down however the game would not eject the ball out of the extra ball shot. Upside down ended and then the extra ball animation played again and gave me another extra ball without me shooting a single addition shot. The game then gave me my ball back out of the extra ball shot.

Although minor, there is one rule difference in the premium/LE.

You can get 2x and 3x scoring during TK MB by locking balls on the backboard.

So, I installed the black diamond and I completely agree with you about the main screen being a vast improvement (sometimes the contrast is a little TOO dark in the really dark scenes). But even after rotating the drop target pieces to make sure they were configured right so that they "popped" more (and you were right...there IS a difference when you rotate it 90 degrees), they still kind of look a little dark compared to the screen above it. Not sure I'm completely a fan, but it is an improvement!
