Did you not get to play before you bought it? The game is tons of fun. I’d be impossible for me to stop playing this.

#3252 10 months ago
Quoted from chuckwurt:

HIGHLY recommend turning down the power on your flippers. 240 on right and 235 on left. You should have zero glass hits at any point if your flipper power is dialed down.
Especially on the pro. No reason to have either flipper juiced.

mine are turned down but with the ramp/demo shot as it is I get lots of glass hits.

LE/PRE V0.88.0 - April 16, 2020
=====================

- Added "Mode Starts to light Extra Ball" instructional speech.
- Improved display award text on Monster Hunting.
- Changed Demogorgon drop target instructional speech to occur less often.
- Now Break Out can be completed by making 25 target hits.
- Improved display award text on Turn up the Heat.
- Changed the rules for Break Out. Targets score 1M, complete all 7 targets
to raise the target score award to 2M, complete again to raise the target
score award to 4M.
- Scoring for Junk Yard has changed. Now shot score awards increase at each
level based upon which shots were made in the previous level.
- Added logic to better align images on the secondary display during Follow
the Compass.
- Added logic to rotate images better on the secondary display.
- Added logic to better align images on the secondary display during Lure Dart.
- Added logic to better align images on the secondary display during Get Me Out.
- Added Junk Yard mode completion speech.
- Added Junk Yard mode start/award speech.
- Changed the rules for Junk Yard. Now 2 shots are lit at a time, complete
them to light 2 more shots. Do this 3 times to complete the mode. The 1st
threshold scores 1M per shot.
- Changed the amount of time the game will wait to compensate a left lane
target shot.
- Changed outlined fonts on the secondary display to have smaller outlines.
- Changed logic to hear narrative speech more frequently.
- Added Narrative logic to manage the iconic speech moments that are heard
thru out the show.
- Now the Left Outlane Ball Save Lit speech is clearer to hear.
- Changed the font used for awards in Quarter Hunt to make the text more readable.
- Added Left Outlane Ball Save is lit speech and criteria for when it is heard.
- Added Mystery instructional speech.
- Improved award text on Lure Dart.
- Improved award text on Follow the Compass.
- Improved award text on Get Me Out.
- Added additional speech to Turn up the Heat.
- Removed Demogorgon and Demodog instructional speech that occurred during
Skill Shot events.
- Improved the 2nd Total Isolation Multiball display text effects.
- Improved Hopper speech heard during Operation Mirkwood.

- Added Demodog Attack Ready speech.
- Added Break Out start speech.
- Added "Double Super Jackpot" and "Triple Super Jackpot" speech to
Telekinesis Multiball.
- Improved award display text on the 4 Telekinesis Multiball jackpot awards.
- Changed the scoring for Operation Mirkwood. Now, the 6th/7th/8th/9th/final
consecutive shots are worth 6M/7M/8M/9M/20M. Finishing Operation Mirkwood
via non-consecutive shots is still worth 10M.
- Added speech to Operation Mirkwood to accommodate 2X+ scoring so the speech
can match the displayed text whenever possible.
- Fixed a bug where, in certain circumstances, collecting a Quarter Hunt
threshold award while a Demogorgon mode/multiball was running could cause
the game to crash.
- Added additional "million" speech callouts for Operation Mirkwood.
- removed a non-rendered frame from the start of the Turn up the Heat Final
award display effect.
- Now the HSTD reset counter is updated when the Standard Adjustment is changed.
- Added TARGET_GAME_TIME adjustment, accessible when the BALL_SAVE_TIME
adjustment is enabled. TARGET_GAME_TIME enables a multi-use ball saver,
whose duration is dynamically calculated for each ball to help ensure the
player has a guaranteed amount of play time per game. TARGET_GAME_TIME has a
range of 1m 30s to 3m 00s and defaults to NO_TARGET_TIME (disabled).
When disabled a traditional single-use BALL_SAVE_TIME ball saver will be
used for each ball in play. When enabled the first ball of play will have a
multi-use ball saver of BALL_SAVE_TIME sec. The second ball will have a
multi-use ball saver which is 25% of (TARGET_GAME_TIME - player_game_time).
The third and beyond will have a multi-use ball saver which is 50% of
(TARGET_GAME_TIME - player_game_time).

#3255 10 months ago

I was looking through the rules and the mystery shot list has a video mode listed as one of the mystery rewards. I’m wondering what it might be but could be cool if it’s a AFM throwback style.

#3256 10 months ago

this is different:

- Added TARGET_GAME_TIME adjustment, accessible when the BALL_SAVE_TIME
adjustment is enabled. TARGET_GAME_TIME enables a multi-use ball saver,
whose duration is dynamically calculated for each ball to help ensure the
player has a guaranteed amount of play time per game. TARGET_GAME_TIME has a
range of 1m 30s to 3m 00s and defaults to NO_TARGET_TIME (disabled).

multi-use ball saver which is 25% of (TARGET_GAME_TIME - player_game_time).
The third and beyond will have a multi-use ball saver which is 50% of
(TARGET_GAME_TIME - player_game_time).

Any other games have this?

Loving the new demo dog rules! Love that how you do in the prior mode affects the scoring of the next mode.

Yeah I think Brian is going to bring back AFM with Stranger Things theme. That would be sweet. Lockbar button used to fire.

#3258 10 months ago

First game and there are a lot of new callouts in this one. Hopper is workin over time. I think there was one time it was talking about demodogs though when it was the demogorgon that was actually ready.

#3259 10 months ago

How's this compare to Elvira HoH for those that have played both? Debating between the two as my next purchase.

This is the Stranger Things club. What do you THINK we think is better?

#3261 10 months ago

So many more callouts. Great addition. And they did a fanatic job of ordering them so they never cutoff or anything. Very well done. This is starting to get packed with assets.

#3262 10 months ago

To me probably the best update so far! LOTS of callouts and i loved it!

It had alot of ambiance to the game.

To me Elvira was the game that surprised me the most. I loved it!! Tough call! Of you love fast action game with an ambiance i’ll go with ST but Elvira is more a family game, shots well, presentation is great and this is the kind of game that make you smile.

My 2 cents

#3264 10 months ago

I think I’m gonna buy the UV kit with my trump check. Stimulate the economy and all.

#3265 10 months ago

Just ordered. Can’t wait !! I hope it adds a lot to the gameplay.

#3266 10 months ago

Best add on I’ve ever seen to a pinball machine. Congrats!

#3267 10 months ago

When you guys update, do you use the quick update option and do you verify? I always choose full update and verify. Takes awhile. But I just wanted to get others opinions on it.

#3268 10 months ago

Love how the code is moving on this title(and Elvira)it’s really looking good and I’m glad I went with my gut feeling and bought one....good job STH code team

Whatever pops up on the screen I do that.

I knew Eddy, Mike V and crew would come through

This game rocks!

We always do Full and Verify. Takes a little bit longer, but this way makes sure your update is 100%. We do this on all our games where available.

#3272 10 months ago

Anyone know if they sell NIB stranger things pin with the UV kit preinstalled ? Looks like a lot of time and taking apart the machine. Cool mod but painstaking process.

#3273 10 months ago

I’m sure a distributor will install it for you with a fee. I just installed it and it’s not hard at all. Maybe an 1 1/2hr to install, very easy. Also there’s a couple of instructions videos on you tube.

#3274 10 months ago

Streamed 0.88 tonight. Tons of callouts. Hopper can't seem to shut up. There's some kids chatter too, and foremost WINONA, I heard her! <3

I had 2 hours of shit games. I really like how Mirkwood works now. The Demodog modes still needs work. The game is not fun when you bring that big cock blocker out.

Here's a long ball 3 game with the shortest TI in recent memory.

#3275 10 months ago

Hi guys,
I'm going to install Convolux plastic protectors on my Stranger Things LE but I cant decide what color, I was thinking either blue or red, has anyone installed any of these two colors or what color do you think would look the best?
I am also replacing all the rubbers with titan rubbers, can't decide on what color to use for these either.
cheers
Trevor

#3276 10 months ago

Clear Titans always for me.

#3277 10 months ago

Hopper does talk a lot now. I don't know if other people are hearing this but on mine I have the volume set to 10 so really low. I'm getting some strange feedback in the back box speakers on some of hoppers call-outs. Not all of them just a few when his voice is really deep. it kind of sounds like the speakers are being overloaded but I'm not sure how that's possible

#3278 10 months ago
Quoted from chuckwurt:

Hey chuck, I saw some pics of someone who installed the glow in the dark rubbers on their machine with the UV kit installed and it looked so badass!! I have the clear also and I’m gonna switch to glow

I have speech attenuation at plus 6 and music attenuation at minus 10.

I always play with volume around 15-16.

Didn’t notice anything you’re talking about.

#3281 10 months ago

I will note that my machine is also a pro with the stock speakers. I have not messed with the audio settings other than volume yet. I'll take a look at that. Seems to me like some of the audio clips are clipping causing the distortion. May not hear it on higher end speakers.

#3282 10 months ago

I also noticed that some of the hopper speech is really clear while others sound broken up. I am going to reinstall the code today to see if that changes anything.

#3283 10 months ago

Purchased on Wednesday few things wrong on startup. Left ball lock rod under ramp not releasing the ball. My fix was to add two small spacer washers to each of the 3 screws holding the coil to the Playfield. So far so good. Next problem the telekinesis ball lock. Adjusted as per chuckwurt PDF file. Now works 100%. Thanks chuckwurt. Adjusted left flipper 235. Right flipper 230. My pitch is 7.0 bubble is centered. The demo shot is hit 50% of the time. Might just be my bad pinball skills. Last problem is the mystery gate(under left ramp). The ball gets stuck there often. Any solutions. I’m thinking of bending the gate some. Very happy with this game. I can’t stop playing it as it really draws you in. So much fun.

On a lot of games, including mine, the gate comes loose and causes balls it get stuck under there. Need to put it back in position and bend it out a bit so it stays. Once I did that I didn't have any more issues.

Thanks...I will give it a gentle try. Just don’t want to snap the gate.

#3286 10 months ago

It seems like a lot of the audio callouts are on different volume levels. Some are clear and some are so low that are inaudible almost. Anyone else ?

I think the custom ones are different than the show clips. Seems to be common when they mix the two. GOT is like this too.

If I remember right, Star Trek was originally terrible with this, but they were able to balance them well in a code update. Hopefully that will happen here too.

That’s good to hear. Yeah I can’t remember if they balanced that out with GOTs most recent update as I haven’t played it a ton and played close attention.

If they'd let me into Pinball Browser I could fix all of these

Wow you can adjust volumes too? That’s huge.

#3292 10 months ago

Does anyone have any cool instruction cards yet?

#3293 10 months ago
Quoted from chuckwurt:

Of course, and match levels, EQ and compression etc... I'm an out of work Audio Engineer at the moment, but hope to be back to work middle of next month.

#3294 10 months ago

Damn man. Hopefully you can get back to work soon.

#3295 10 months ago

I like the ones it came with. Stern seems to have finally given up the plain yellow ones.

Definitely better than the plain yellow ones but just looking for a bit more myself

I took everyone’s advice and ordered the UV kit from stern.

It’s the tits!! Just installed it today with the new code. Wowzers!!! This game is so addictive!! Love the new callouts

#3298 10 months ago

I'm having alot of trouble trying to download the new from stern. Been trying all morning.
ll my other internet and download items are fine. Anyone have any advice or having the same issue?

#3299 10 months ago

If you’ve done all the stuff you normally do, and it’s not working, I say try a different usb stick.

#3300 10 months ago

Its actually getting the file from stern site..cant even get to stick level!!
