For those who have there games in hand, how are the playfields looking and holding up? Any pooling around posts? Or major dimpling like stranger things?

Quoted from J85M:

For the pro at least, it's much better than Stranger Things. No craters despite a fair amount of airballs and ramp flaps aren't denting like tinfoil like they did on Stranger Things. The Stern lottery is alive.

Do distributors have pro's for the general public yet? Any idea on how long the wait is?

#654 6 months ago
Quoted from Gtrefraction:

Do you think you will like TMNT more than Jurassic Park?

That’s really hard to say after only one day.

I know Jurassic park inside and out so I can tell myself exactly which shots are next in line before they’re even lit.

Also, the one thing that will likely always be better about JP is original theme music vs whatever they call that remake they used for TMNT - it’s not bad, it’s just not the original so I don’t get the goosebumps when I hear it

I’ll start by saying I don’t understand the obsession with going over these machines so closely but with that said I gave my playfield a quick inspection this morning (because I knew people were going to ask) and on my LE it appears to be pristine

Quoted from zeagle:

Do you know something we don't? lol. I'm waiting on my premium hoping that they start making those and they get shipped by the end of the month or early August.

Yeah I'm not sure how that timing is possible considering LEs aren't done yet and pros are coming up next.....

2 weeks for pros to be in stock I was told.

The turtles have made their way out of the sewer, and out to Wyoming

Quoted from PinballZach:

The game just seems too easy to me. I mean when you do start an episode, when you drain I noticed I was spotted the episode, without having to work my way through it to advance in the game.

How you score in the modes comes back in the final battle, also even if you set the machine to 5 balls per game you still wouldn't get to the final battle by just starting and draining, so i don't really see the issue.

Iron Maiden modes are also counted as completed even if you fail just after starting them, so you can still get to 2 minutes to midnight but the scoring will stink if you didn't do well.

I think Star Trek handles modes the same way. You can score a higher medal (Gold, silver, bronze), but can also fail out of the final completion shot and still progress with a lower score.

Maybe they have multiple lines at the factory?

#663 6 months ago

My distro just told me they are starting to build more pros now so they must be done with LEs. Depending on how many pros they are making now, could be prem on the line next week.

#664 6 months ago

That green powder looks realy great!

Quoted from fattdirk:

When at full capacity, I believe they have 4 lines running consecutively. We know with COVID measures in place that they are not at full capacity but whether that means one line, two lines, etc. I don't know. How ever many lines they are running, I'd be surprised is the entire factory is working on TMNT as they still have orders on other active titles that they need to fulfill...

So here I sit, desperately awaiting delivery of my premium.

#668 6 months ago

My center ramp is not registering when I make the shot about 5% of the time. I don't think it is an issues with the opto, as most of the time it registers. I wonder if it is just zipping around the ramp so fast it can't detect it? Not a huge deal, but it is extremely frustrating when you hit that shot (especially for Krang combo) and you don't get the credit. Anyone else having the same issue?

Yes, same. Sometimes it goes so fast up that ramp that it flies off into the side of the cabinet. I'll probably change the upper flipper to the soft setting in the adjustments menu.

Fine tuning done, I think the final result came out pretty well.

I have never had it fly off! It does whip around that ramp super fast though.

Looks great! Given the color coordination, the names "Leo", "Raph", etc. would be a cool option in place of "Ninja" and "Turtles" (Not sure what's on the upper left flipper)

I just went with a solid color.

just got the LE!

how do you add co op? also, how do you reset the game I noticed you could do that as well?

#675 6 months ago
Quoted from cleanandlevel:

Push and hold both flippers to change modes. To end the game with the start button and left flipper buttons, you have to turn the feature on, I believe it’s under standard adjustments.

It was on by default for me.

#677 6 months ago

just got it set up and figured out co op, but what's the restart? tried holding the left flipper and holding start button but it didn't work. have it turned on in standard adjustments.

Hold just the start button after ball 2 is in the shooter lane. The Left flipper+start ends the game, and can be done any time, but I don't think all stern games have this feature (don't have my TMNT yet to check).

Quoted from RetroGamerJP:

I am being told that my Guardians of the Galaxy machine is still planned to ship end of this month, so that would corroborate your theory.

#680 6 months ago

Just got my LE today... This game is amazing...

Thanks,

Are you set to freeplay? It’s on by default once your set to freeplay.

#682 6 months ago

I thought that they made a way so that if a kid adds 4 players to a game you can reset it immediately instead of having to get to ball 2. hate having my friends kid come over and add 4 players and I have to power cycle the game to restart.

edit: standard adjustments number 48. had to turn on. can now restart game with 4 players sweeeeeet

#683 6 months ago

Has anyone put a shaker in yet? Got mine today from Pinball Life, but I can't seem to get it to work in the game.

I can go to the coil test, and it vibrates successfully, but nothing in the game.

The setting is Maximum (default).

I downloaded the SD image for 1.0.4 and re-flashed the SD card, still no shaker in the game.

Anyone else seeing this? I have a Pro.

#684 6 months ago

Just got my TMNT le today. What is the intended divertor flow? At the game start, you cannot move the divertor correct? Mine moves to direct to the left flipper at game start. When can I freely move the diverter? Just learning the rules and only had a couple of games on it so far. Thanks

Yeah, it only really comes on during multi-ball. Was hoping it would be more active even set to maximal use.

I would strongly urge Stern to take more advantage of the shaker motor.

You're right! And it's only Turtle Power multiball. I had been doing the ninja pizza multiball during my tests. Zero there!

I think they don’t look so good!
And at $50 No thanks .
I’ll go with a different Flipper topper

You do you, it’s great to have options. People spray paint a $5 pencil sharpener and sell it for $50+, the pricing I have it at is what would make it worthwhile for me to make a set for someone who wants them in my free time.

Congrats to all you LE owners. Game looks stunning.

#690 6 months ago

Anyone on here have a TMNT banner? If so did you have to buy it? I was hoping to get one from stern for my location to promote but sounds like their trying to charge for one.

Stern has never direct sold these to the public afaik. You could buy them from distros though. One time inquired about wanting a banner for my location and was giving the art files so I could order my own from somewhere. I never did though.

Oddly enough, I was told by my distributor that I could not buy them from him since it requires a license separate from selling the pinball machines. He basically just brings them to events and has a big stash of them.

Got some games in on location today. I'm pretty sure hold bonus isn't working. Had two different holds that I think got away.

Maybe some owners could take a look

#696 6 months ago

LE owners, how often are you using the diverter button?

Working on the Pro at least. I've seen it a lot.

Quoted from vireland:

It says it on the ball you earn it, but I think that's it. I had two different hold bonus around 4m that didn't get added on the following ball.

I guess it's worth noting that I'm a chronic double flipper screen skipper. Might just be confused, but since the game is bonus heavy I was trying to pay attention.

Ah, I just have seen the screen that I got the bonus held. I haven't done the math to make sure that bitch Barb hasn't crept over from the upside-down in Stranger Things to play unkind games with TMNT scoring now, too.

but you never heard the german version, its so much better
