Quoted from jespo_19:

Hardest part for me will be pro vs premium. I'm letting go of walking dead because it's such a visual eyesore (and I'm kind of tired or the lacking layout imo)
Is the projector that killer during the game to warrant all the blank white when it's shut off?
Code and call-outs I trust will come along and seem fun already as it sits. Layout and art on game are also plusses. How does it look in a lineup? Pro or prem?

Premium. 100%
The projector is awesome. Super unique in pinball. The sticker "screen" on the pro can't compete!
The tk lock (when set up correctly) is awesome. Also unique to pinball. It's a PITA though.
Prem artwork is great IMO too.

I couldn't care less about the blank white when the game is off. It's like the lcd screen being blank black when it's off. Who cares?

#4802 1 year ago
Quoted from PinMonk:

Let's not get too crazy.
Lyman made TWD great. This will not be TWD. Lonnie has a code ceiling for whatever reason. That said, it will be fine if you're not expecting a Lyman masterpiece.

This pin actually sits next to my TWD pin and I play this way more because I think it’s better hell I would sell my TWD today if my wife would let me! She doesn’t even play she just likes the show and thinks the pin looked cool

#4803 1 year ago

Yeah this definitely won’t be like any Lyman game. It will be solid though and I think grow on people as they get time on the completed game. It will have a very attainable wizard mode, and appeal to lots of skill levels.

Might not hold the interest for the top top players, but that’s okay.

Really happy with how this game has evolved.

The projector is cool but for me not enough to spend the extra coin. Not to mention the time needed to tweek the lock mech on the premium is something I don't have the patience to deal with.

I'm looking for a TWD LE or Premium if you can talk her into letting it go.

Quoted from Kharris:

I'll never sell my TWD Prem. It's a frickin pinball masterpiece. Perfect level of kick your ass difficulty combined with the best coding/ruleset. Plus Cleland custom audio is bad ass.

We have similar tastes. Good choice

chuckwurt You said you left your outlanes in the default position but turned down your sling flipper power. What value do you have them set to?

#4808 1 year ago
Quoted from joelbob:

Like three ticks below stock.

#4809 1 year ago

I sold my walking dead LE a month ago, I like the theme but I hated the layout and found it boring. Stranger things LE I like better and so does everyone else that comes over. And who cares what the game looks when off, it matters what happens when the game is on.

#4810 1 year ago

I adjusted my sling power down to 15. Works great for me, but I also put my outlanes in the center hole.

#4811 1 year ago

I have my slings at 14 and my flippers at 250

#4812 1 year ago

Just waiting happily on my delivery today.

#4813 1 year ago

Am I just a very mediocre player or do others agree the game straight out of the factory is very challenging? Do you feel turning down the slings is less "cheating" than moving the outlanes? I heard that Brian Eddy designed the game with the posts in the middle hole yet they shipped in the highest hole. I usually leave all my games default but I'm getting wrecked by side to side action and power drains out the outlanes.

The only reason for having the posts in the highest hole is to shorten game times on location. The middle hole is how Eddy designed it, and that's good for me. I'm a mediocre player as well...

#4815 1 year ago

Just set it up the way you want it. If it starts to play too easy then back off some of the adjustments once you find the shots better.

I think the difficulty of the game is offset well by the multiple EB opportunities. You’ll get 2 EBs if you play 6 modes. Once you practice a bit, that can be a pretty regular occurrence.

I also suggest making the burn it back extra ball set to a standard amount instead of auto. Like 20 loops for the first EB. Second EB is 50 I think.

Start to plan out your games to really attacking the objectives that lead to EBs.

The difficulty just makes those great games all the more rewarding to me.

#4816 1 year ago

I'll share my settings.
Left eject 19
Trough eject 180 (I always turn this down to try to decrease shooter lane wear)
Ball launch 200
Slingshots 14 (default was giving me some airballs)
Left flipper 250
Right flipper 255
Outlane posts centered (right outline still gets me frequently)

#4817 1 year ago

imagamejunky Why are you left and right flippers different?

#4818 1 year ago

Right needs full power for the tk lock. Left is lower to try to reduce the 10 million airballs. If I could get away with it I would keep both of them lower. My playfield looks like it's intentionally covered in dimples from the factory. Absolutely covered

#4819 1 year ago

Maybe I'm in the minority here, but I really wish there was an option to allow us to skip the demodog, demogorgon, and TK multiballs.
Multiple times I've been given the multi-ball from the mystery and I don't want it at that time.
I have yet to hear all of Cleland's music from certain modes like operation mirkwood because I keep getting stuck with a stupid demogorgon or demodog.
I'll use DI for example. If you shoot the Phone Scoop you can double flip the flippers to cancel the multi-ball if you don't want it right then. Helps with strategy.
And you could successfully start a mode and then choose to start the multi-ball stacked

Well, the snarky answer is: Don't shoot those middle shots and you can continue listening to the tunes. BUT...you have to hit those shots to get through the modes, of course.

You lost me at the TK multiball. I think that's one of the best multiball starting animations and sounds since Addams, and well worth the tradeoff.

But for me, it's What Mama Says and Turn Up The Heat that I hate interrupting. Those two modes are genuinely disturbing like no other game I can recall. And I LOVE them!

Unfortunately you have to shoot the mystery/demodog lane during some modes and then demodog starts.
Agree with you that tk multiball sounds and looks awesome. I’d just prefer to start it when I want it, not from a mystery shot.
Also, totally agree that what mama says and “burn this kid” modes are creepy and fantastic

#4822 1 year ago

I feel the multiball start and demo ready mysteries are rare. I’ve only gotten each a couple times.

Would be cool to have adjustments for every mystery award and to be able to adjust their % chance that you get it.

Kind of like the supply drops in smash brothers for particular items.

#4823 1 year ago

Seriously considering purchasing pinwoofer’s new speaker kit for my machine. It looks a lot cleaner of an install then their previous versions. Anyone have a pinwoofer system installed in their machine?

#4824 1 year ago

I don’t but I’m considering his new product as well. Waiting until someone else does and sees how it compares to stock plus sub. Haha

#4825 1 year ago
Quoted from chuckwurt:

chuckwurt I will probably get it soon. Maybe in the next week or so. I’ll let you know how it goes.

Thanks. I really don’t want to replace the kenwoods in my game, so I would probably get the amp only then buy my own replacement cabinet sub. Might ask Dan if he will sell me one a la cart.

The sound in this game is good so a Pinwoofer amp could really take it up a notch.

#4827 1 year ago

Thank you imagamejunky for your settings. I adjusted my pro to use the same (except I left the left flipper alone) and it helped a ton. I’ve moved my posts back to the middle holes.

Glad it helped.
You will have to play with left eject power vs slope so the ball will make it around the burn it back loop as chuckwurt has previously mentioned.

#4829 1 year ago

I'm curious about a pinwoofer set up as well. However, after changing out the stock 4"ers to the kenwood 5.25"ers and then adding a big 12" powered sub with a pinnovator's sub out board I'm SUPER happy with the sound. Don't see how it could improve much honestly.
Especially with Clelands mix with the C418 song playing. It BUMPS

Agree with chuckwurt - if you have the LE/SE trim package with upgraded backbox speakers (or your own), leave them in. The amp and expander is what's going to give you the definition in the backbox and the clarity of call-outs compared to the stock amp.

We offer a package (electronics + sub speaker and ring) sans the backbox speakers. It's in the shop under "PinWoofer GT 8in Spike-2 Super Kit" or search for "EHOH" in the upper-right.

One Elvira is installed and he commented to me, and we sold a couple more over the weekend so it will be a week or two before we get a read point on those.

Thanks!

Is there a sub you recommend? I got the 10” Polk that everyone recommends but I’m thinking going 12” for deeper bass

Just got ST today. TK lock works great, but when my shots have power. I’m excited to try your settings. Everything default right now.

Yes. I have the pro version with the stock 4” backbox speakers. And since day one I’ve been underwhelmed by their performance, especially during most of the call outs. I’m so close to pulling the trigger on your setup. It looks cleaner then most aftermarket setups and that’s what I like. I don’t like a lot of wires and boards laying around. I like clean look.

What’s your angle set at? Degree and bubble?

I have the older model and love it! The new one is definitely a cleaner look though.

You don’t have to replace the kenwoods. I talked to the owner of pinwoofer when I bought my setup and he didn’t include the backbox speakers and took off 20 dollars.

#4837 1 year ago

UV kit and Shooter installed. Also dialed in projector. This thing is popping! 12 year just got 1st initials

#4838 1 year ago

Who has the shooter rod in stock??

#4841 1 year ago
Quoted from tk375:

It says that, but they don't. I asked already.

Yeah, the online store will let you add the Shooter Rod to your cart, but once you go to checkout it'll show it out of stock.

#4842 1 year ago

I picked one up a few weeks ago from Cointaker.

#4843 1 year ago

Bummer. Yeah i would fall around to the distros and see who has them in stock.

#4844 1 year ago

DIY topper.
