Quoted from chubtoad13:

Joined the club, my first LE.

Looks great and awesome lineup! Which inner art blades are those on your TWDLE?

#5752 3 years ago
Quoted from RipleYYY:

but, as this is quite a big plastic, i'm already a bit afraid with a 1 piece of lexan there, not sure it will not cause the 2 ramp fixations to break (even is 1 piece is better than 2, with 1 on each fixation)

Wow I never had a ball fly off the ramp there always on the left side return with the little hump and it has to be moving fast after an orbit, if anyone has fixed this please post a pick of the plastic, Thanks

I’m not sure where they are from. They were on the machine when I bought it.

Quoted from RipleYYY:

and than, (soft) plastic protector installed... will came back later for a feedback about flying balls... (reminder : i'm at 95 games played)
what i know already :
need a lexan piece there, because mine (soft for now) is not transparent and its hidding the place behind
but, as this is quite a big plastic, i'm already a bit afraid with a 1 piece of lexan there, not sure it will not cause the 2 ramp fixations to break (even is 1 piece is better than 2, with 1 on each fixation)
more ideas welcome of course

Yeah, that frosted plastic is just not good.

Those are from Pingraffix. They had them also with the fence in mirror, but I can only find the normal ones now.

I know it has to be somewhere but can someone please post the link to the detailed rule set / walkthrough for TWD pro? Why can’t I figure out how to get siege? I have been to horde twice in the same game and killed close to 70 walkers I think.

In 1.60 , if you look at the display , it tells you how many jackpots remaining to get to seige . I think default is 12. Keep starting prison multiball until you get there. It's not easy.

*** Pinball-Browser; Cataloging Sounds in TWD ***

Has anyone done any cataloging of the sounds in the v.1.6 code in Pinball-Browser?

If you don't know what I'm talking about, Pinball browser displays "Requests" by number, which correspond to sound samples. There is no description of the sound. For example, the sound for an inserted coin is listed simply as Request 168, 01s770ms. This makes it impossible to scroll through and find the samples that interest you.

It would helpful to know, for example, the request numbers of, say, the main song, etc. I have started cataloging, but there are *many* requests/samples. Has anyone here on this thread who has been using Pinball-Browser done any cataloging he/she can share? I will certainly share mine when I have more, but if there is work done already by another person, I would love to see that rather than slog through this myself.

Thanks!

#5760 3 years ago

Anyone know how to fix flickering bayonet LED socket issues? The ones right beside the flippers on each side (under the inlane guides) are flickering/not working. Tried swapping bulbs with each other but did not resolve.

Contact Stern. I believe there is an upgraded wiring harness that fixes this.

Unfortunately , i do not have an index , but the options for sorting sound samples can bring all of the longest sounds to the top or bottom (V or ^) . All music will be longer samples.

There is another option which sorts sounds in groups by events. Ex. all of the sound relevant to a mode will appear together.

Thanks for your reply, E. Sorting by duration helps, as it put the main song sample at the top, allowing me to find it for the first time. Sorting by group, however, is proving elusive. Can you be more specific?

Er, wait. I *may* have it now. Searching by "Scripts" allows me to see certain script numbers that have multiple entries, each with a different alpha ending. Trying one example - "It's gotta be in the brain!" reveals a series of similar/related callouts. Is that what you mean by "groups"?

Thanks.

#5765 3 years ago

Hey guys, thought I'd post this here also (I did post in the tech section but figured someone had the same issue as me).

I ordered the SAM system Shaker Motor for TWDLE and installed it. Once I went in the schematics to test the motor, it didn't go off. I followed the instructions 100%.

The Coil test for the shaker motor does not work (yes, we are holding the white coin door switch that sends High Voltage in the first place, but pressing Menu/black button does not give any activity on the motor.

My technician verified all the harnesses and there are no connection mistakes. He also used a 9Volt battery just to temporarily test the shaker motor and even at the reduced 9Volt, it spun fine.

Is there something to do in the sw setup (or newer firmware or something) that is needed before this motor can be activated? Else, I assume a defective PCB board/interface (SM PCB). We already checked the fuse and a few diodes and they are fine.

Any help would be appreciated!

Thanks!

Yeah , i think scripts is what i meant.

Takes a long time to go through every sound and label them. Probably why nobody did.

The key index shows 1.56 but the link in that post is not to the rule set but just to an image of the rule cards. Perhaps the link needs to be updated? Or maybe my browser is not showing the google doc correctly? In any case now that I know what I need to do for siege I think I have everything figured out anyways.

Love the escape from Horde now. Also the endless arena fight is cool but once you miss the shot and escape the mode ends. So cool.

Still trying to figure what to do to maximize CDC mode. Loving this game! So glad to have my pro back after selling it. I have some a lot of games but it was truly the only one I ever regretted selling. It’s a keeper now for sure.

#5772 3 years ago
Quoted from pinchamp:

same here and this time my Pre is never leaving. Horde mode wasn't coded yet when I sold my LE, no bombs or GI dynamic lighting and now with the Slayer rom theres just no chance, in my opinion the best pinball machine ever made. Zombies and Slayer? Color DMD LED and a few PF mods are still need but I'm in no rush. I'm gonna change the white GI to yellow, did a few already and it really looks great.

I’m not 100% sure about this, but you have a rev A shaker board. I had thought only rev B were compatible. I have rev B in my game and all stern games.

Where does that connector in the bottom middle of the board run to? That connection is not in the rev b board.

Thanks for your help! I believe this is the culprit. I purchased this package from ebay and the first time I received the shaker motor, I received a REV C package instead of the REV B so the seller had to send me the correct package. Now I see that he also sent me the wrong PCB board.

Thanks for spotting that! I was sure my technician did everything 100% correct so this was becoming a riddle for us.

Cheers

#5780 3 years ago

FYI - when sounds are added in an update, it changes the address of some of the sounds.

So a lot of those sound locations (0x32) will be shifted , which is part of the challenge of re-compiling custom for each software revision.

Pinball browser has the capabilities to redefine the positions once the "shifts" are identified.

Here is the shift id info from 1.43 to 1.56 (which may apply to millhouses document)

ShiftId,1,0x32,0x30
ShiftId,1,0x41,0x40
ShiftId,1,0x98B,0x9DE
ShiftId,1,0xA02,0xA5C
ShiftId,1,0xA6B,0xACC
ShiftId,1,0xA80,0xB58
ShiftId,1,0x1061,0x1140
ShiftId,1,0x158C,0x1695

Bottom line is the document will most likely not be useful for locating exact locations anymore (once a shift is encountered) and certainly will not contain any new sounds that were added. However, the gaps or additional sounds might be revealed in the ShiftId's listed above.

If you are confused , so am i.

Thanks, E, for your help - again!

And I agree: sample lists compiled for older code versions are useful only in so far as they indicate the length of a given sample, not its true request number. I will replace all the of the lacking songs (which play during modes) and perhaps a handful of the SFX I can identify. I just thought it would be fun to customize the sound of my pin. That's all.

For those of you having airballs like this, have you tried putting the coil setting to "soft"? Apparently I set mine to soft when I got the machine and with the recent update, I must have forgot to set it back to soft. Its the first time I have had an airball like this... So perhaps coil to "soft" is the way to go...

Quoted from Rager170:

Yep. I’ve since learned that good to know. But it appears if you buy either he wrong system specified, you won’t have the right installation parts. Some need an extra board, some don’t. I guess make sure you have all the parts you need.

nope... may be another direction to try
and until now, no more airballs with my mod, as of course, the ramp is nicely "closed" as it... will remove it next week-end, and try to cut a smaller lexan one

#5792 3 years ago

I have the same new TWD PRO and no airballs on the right ramp. THe only way I can get an airball is if I do a combo of inner loop and right ramp with left flipper if I fire back at full speed. This is rare and no ramp guard is necessary IMO. The game slows down after a few hundred plays.

Does youve been bit have any purpose besides the meager points? I'm hoping I'm missing something here.

#5794 3 years ago

you drain your ball so you've been bit... what's there to miss?

#5795 3 years ago
Quoted from tp:

Bit value can build quite high, although no one is trying to build it up. with double scoring and an accidental X you could win a match by draining!

#5796 3 years ago

Almost finished setting up my nib TWD. Build date is Oct, 2017. At this point, the game should have the modified ramp extender for the bicycle girl.
Is there an easy way to know if it's installed? The end of the ramp covers up the top of the big insert, so I think it must be.
Also, would I have to worry about the ramp digging into the playfield like earlier models or should that be fixed at this point as well?
Thanks for any help!

#5797 3 years ago

As far as I know Stern never extended the BG ramp from the original design. I bought the aftermarket extender from a gentleman on this thread and although expensive it is well worth it. Makes the game WAY smoother to play on the Premium (and LE I'm sure).

*** SALE PENDING: Suite of mods for TWD ***

All mods are in good shape. They were installed/removed carefully in/from a new TWD pin. When taking them out, I used the original instructions to guide me, so as not to leave any parts of the mod behind. Still, just to be clear, I encourage you to look at the pictures and judge for yourself.

1. Speaker Light Kit w/red acrylic TWD grilles.
http://www.speakerlightkits.com/Type-9.html

2. Mezel Mods TWD Tower mod
https://mezelmods.com/collections/walking-dead-pinball-mods/products/walking-dead-pinball-prison-tower

3. Laseriffic Fishtank mod w/strip LED and leads. I can’t find this particular mod on Joe’s site, but I’m fairly sure it’s his work. It ties in with splice clips to the Tower flasher – or so I read in the instructions. It adheres (double-sided tape) to a piece of aluminum that is screwed to the back panel (hole already present) and the leads snake into the cabinet through the left ramp’s hole in the back panel. If I had to guess, I would say this was made by Pinsider mod maker “mikeincali,” but I don’t know.

4. Cointaker Lighted Flipper Kit, clear
https://cointaker.com/products/led-flipper-button-kit-deluxe-stern-pre-spike-dmd

5. Woodbury sign

6. Hand-painted Zombie shooter rod, 7-7/8” x 3/8”. I don’t know what artist made this fine mod, but the quality is a notch or two above “cheap toy,” for sure. This is hand-painted. It’s made from a fairly hard material, so it doesn’t “squeeze” when you pull against the plunger spring, etc.

Retail for this set of mods is approximately $300. I’m asking $150, shipping in the cont. U.S. included. All mods were in good working order when removed, but they are sold here AS-IS.

To see a gallery of images of these very mods…
https://www.flickr.com/photos/30661173@N07/albums/72157689107238902

Payment via PayPal is fine, but only as “Friends and Family.” Otherwise, add four per cent.

Thanks for looking.

This is dumb, I recently got my first color dmd. So when I update this I know I'll lose the settings/high scores, and the custom music (got the game with it, hopefully easy to replace) but will I lose the color dmd setting or file or anything?

A different point, has anyone noticed the difference in crossbow mechs from the LE (earlier run) to the later premiums? Three slots so to speak visible from above on the older LE and only one on the newer premiums. Had minor issues with both of them just noticed the difference the other day. Whatever this game is so good. Had a premium for a year and upgraded to a LE, don't think this one will leave. Slight difference in playfield color/brightness as well, but it is very slight.

#5800 3 years ago

Wasn’t the Woodbury sign factory? I always thought it was.

Great deal on the mods. I would be interested but the only ones I don’t have are the tower and the fish tank. PM me if there is a deal to be made on just those two.

Otherwise good luck with the sale.
