Looking to join--looking for a nice one within driving distance of So Cal.
No worries, a man's got to know his limitations. Found a super nice one--what a sleeper of a game!
Had a really interesting Midnight Madness--actually had it twice. Midnight Madness kicked in just as the last ball drained. The flippers stayed on for a few seconds--so I thought I'd get it anyway. Nope, game shut down and all the balls drained, came back and drained for about 15 seconds while I watched my bad luck go by. I figured I'd try again in 24--bummer. Started another game, and got MM again! Not sure how long after midnight you'll get this mode, but at least the programmer let me have it again after that immediate midnight drain!
I'm not sure I'm clear on how to make arrests during Crime Wave. Can someone offer tips? Thanks.
Quoted from TheLaw:
Yeah it's pretty rough. But don't worry, completing shoot out is even harder
It is so cool to drain and get this bonus mode, until you realize you have to hit all the bullets. At least a couple are not in spots you'd normally aim for. I'll bet I've never hit at least one of those magnum targets, ever...
Still, a cool feature--I always look forward to getting it.
Anyone been able to hit the ramps with the off flipper--is it possible? Left ramp from the right flipper, right (helicopter) ramp from the right flipper.
I answered half my question tonite--hit a super lucky lower R. flipper around the helicopter ramp--so that one is possible.
You might have something there--arresting them is too hard, bustin' some caps might be easier!
Finally hit Alcatraz multi ball tonite but was unsure of just exactly what to do. Is there a goal once you get this started--a way to complete the mode?
A note--if you have not added a powered sub yet, get one immediately! One of the best pins for deep and punchy bass I have ever hooked a sub up to!
Thanks to those who reviewed DH or updated their posted review. Callahan has (for now) been saved from the abyss and has even climbed some More work to be done, rate it if you have not and set your ratings to "public" if you want it to count. No stopping 'til we pass Xenon (at least)!
Yup, this game is way better than most people think it is. Really fun pin.
That reminds me--we are sinking in the ratings again and about to get bumped out of the "Top 100"--so if you have not rated...rate! And, set your ratings to "public" so they will count.
Quoted from o-din:
Strange thing happened last night. I started regular multiball and ended up with four balls in play. Haven't seen that before and not sure the sequence of shots that made it spit that fourth ball out but it kept track and ended multiball when one ball was left. Game works fine. Hmmm..
Also it's been a while since I've seen Magnum multiball. Does anybody know what starts that?
I didn't even know there was a Magnum Multiball...
Quoted from Robertstone0407:
So anyone else notice the bug that there's no ball save on the skill shot if you choose the gun
I did not notice that--I'll have to check it out--but I have also been using the ramp shot lately. It seems like the best bang for your buck...if you make the ramp you can double-up on HQ.
edit: The reason I didn't notice it was because I do have ball save with the gun. Code is LA-2.
Going...going...almost gone--tied for 99. Hard to believe this game isn't better thought of.
Quoted from TractorDoc:
Ill be honest, I did not read all 14 pages (but I had in the past -- just cannot remember) what is the farthest contraband you have reached from the warehouse? Tonight I had my right flipper backhand down and just kept flipping the ball back in -- received a game credit after getting the USS Nimitz and the last one I was hit was some kind of cow (could not read the exact description quick enough). . .
Along the way (maybe not exact order and maybe missing a couple) is C4-Explosive, Copper Pinball, Contraband Amunition, Spying Equipment, Infrared Goggles, Secret Viruses (one of my favorites), Police Scanner, Contraband Ivory, Cuban Cigars, Contraband Guns, Contraband Knives, Stolen Jewelry, Computer Code, Computer Software, Passports, Stolen Painting, Tekken Statues, USS Nimitz, Cow. There were a couple others after the Stolen Painting but it was the first time I saw them and cannot remember everything. . .
That's a lot further than I've ever made it--anyone finished this mode? What else is there to get?
Crime Wave, Alcatraz, Scorpio, stolen car and super loops maybe? If you want it on even more then also link it to multiball.
Quoted from djreddog:
I just recently experienced the ball falling out of the gun. The fix for me was loosening the screw to the wireform ramp and pushing the wireform “back” (think easterly position). This made the hole smaller for the ball to drop down into and thus killing the momentum of the ball rolling out of the gun.
If you have not added a powered sub, try that before going to the hassle of reinventing the speakers. It makes a huge improvement in the sound.
Quoted from Scoot:
I cleaned my newly purchased Dirty Harry and waxed the playfield, making the game play much faster now. the problem I am now having is that on a clean shot to the right ramp, the ball launches off the ramp exit, over the lane gate and back towards me, missing the jackpot almost every time. I just don't see much for an adjustment since the left ramp comes right over the top of the right ramp. I'm thinking of adding a clear cover over that section of ramp to keep the ball in play, similar to the one on the left ramp. Does anyone have a solution for this? Also wondering what production number my pin is. Is it the last four digits of the S/N #?
I'm pretty sure there is supposed to be a ramp cover on that ramp to prevent this from happening. Problem is the cover has to be adjusted just right for height or the ball will stick between the ramp and the cover (so probably someone took yours off).
Finally completed "Shootout" today right before time ran out. What was interesting was what happened after--all the balls came back into play, but the flippers were still dead. Maybe it is supposed to be like that, or maybe it is a software bug.
Quoted from bssbllr:
Here’s one guys opinion but I’m doing it regardless I believe the harder it plays the more challenging and fun it is.
If you do this mod please post a walk-thru of how you did it.
