Quoted from Damien:

Picked up a pro today... Does the very noticeable wood grain seem normal?

I haven't noticed any visible wood grain on my TWD Premium playfield. I don't see any wood grain in person or in the photo that is shown below of my TWD playfield.

You have a leaf switch outside the rubber on your right sling.

Sure does good catch. Rubber to the outside. My playfield, I'm sure it doesn't look like that.

Quoted from Damien:

Something odd about your photo. Look at the upper right of the Horde insert. Doesn't look like wood grain there because it's running diagonally across the playfield, not up and down like the grain.

#6154 1 year ago
Quoted from Damien:

Anyone else? None of my other games look like this.

We have a few games like that. There are plenty of threads on Pinside about it. It is mainly on newer games. We do not worry about it but other people do. Most people will tell you that their machine does not have it. To see it, you have to get the light in exactly the right position. How many photos did you have to take before you could see the ribbing in the photo you posted? If you go through your other games with a magnifying glass or microscope, chances are you will be able to find it in them too. You do already know about it, you were in the CGC playfield shitstorm on the AFMr owners thread. What exactly are you asking here?

#6155 1 year ago

My TWD looks like this. It doesn't bother me in the least though since the game is so kick ass. Doesn't seem to affect the ball's path at all.

#6156 1 year ago
Quoted from Damien:

In the wide variety of pf production that seems to happen with every big manufacturer out there, it's a ribbed playfield. A well known and trodden topic on the forum, especially recently. That pf is not perfect, but it's essentially cosmetic. In the wide variety of "minor" pf issues that occur, including ghosting, CC chipping, misaligned pf colors, off-color production or worse, ribbing is generally considered to be the most minor issue (fwiw). The TWDLE pf here is great in every way. But OTOH, there's also an older early DMD pin here that has some significant wear and tear around the inserts which I would consider much worse than ribbing. However, in the grand scheme of things, it doesn't bother me. YMMV in either case if you're a pin perfectionist.

It's definitely disappointing to get a brand new game, and see this sort of blemish. I've accepted no game is perfect, but this should have been recalled in the QC process.

It would be nice if it were recalled, but that isn't the case at all, with any of the major manufacturers (Stern, JJP, CGC). The foolproof way to avoid any blemish issues is to buy a game used. At least then one can put their eyes on the game and fully know and understand what they are getting. NIB is great, but it's no guarantee of a perfect game.

Sorry to see it happen again.

Stern did loads of recalls on Ghostbusters with ghosting. Not sure why this wouldn't be covered. In my opinion it's harder to accept and ignore compared to ghosting.

The pic of your playfield doesn't look that bad. Can you take some more pics, so we could see how it looks from straight on angles?
Maybe the pic you uploaded isn't showing the ribbing very well?

Quoted from Damien:

I see some similarities in how it's been handled. Look at the history; ribbing has been okay, planking not okay. Feedback here (on the last Stern issues) reported that 6 or less ghosted inserts was okay, >6 inserts ghosted was not okay. Less than perfect pf's are at least somewhat consistently out there in many ways as mentioned (and for many years). If you buy NIB, perfection is not guaranteed. Vote with your wallet.

#6163 1 year ago

I haven't read up on all the threads but would have to agree with Damien. I'd be very disappointed with this and don't see how it could pass QC. Who really would buy this at full price knowing that you'd get a ribbed pf? Not me. NIB is a crap shoot.

#6164 1 year ago

I've owned Stern games in the past that had ribbing like that. It's under the clear coat and still feels smooth to the touch. It's really only noticable from certain angles. It doesn't effect game play or insert integrity so I wouldn't worry about it and enjoy your game. TWD is an awesome game! Congrats!

#6165 1 year ago

ah ok... its smooth? I figured it felt like it looked and would lead to planking.

#6166 1 year ago
Quoted from Damien:

I am extremely happily married and love live. Unlike yourself that wants to destroy every thread you are apart of with your constant complaining. I just love that you did not answer honestly how many photos you had to take before you could get one to show the ribbing. This is a great thread with many genuine pinsiders that all help each other with their machines. Have you put some cliffys on the shooter lane yet or do we have to listen to you complaining about the shooter lane chipping too?

#6167 1 year ago

If you zoom in on Damien’s pic it looks way worse. The ribbing pretty much spans the entire playfield. That glare from the window really makes it look pronounced. I have a premium that I set up in my garage which is always dimly lit. The playfield looks perfectly fine when I am playing it. I just turned the machine off and turned on a bright overhead light and sure enough I can see similar ribbing from the glare when I look from certain angles. My advice would be move it away from the window and you won’t notice it. I’m pretty positive Stern will not replace it.

Hahaha, so by posting a photo and asking if something appeared to be normal about a game I just purchased, I'm making this thread toxic???

And do you think for a second I cared that you asked to see more photos? When I saw you post, I rolled my eyes and skipped over it. You're a shill that tells everyone with a problem to just suck it up.

I think you should do two things:

1) Look up the word empathy.
2) Ignore my posts the way I generally ignore yours.

#6169 1 year ago

On a positive note, I played a few games last night and ended up getting to Horde. That is one of the best wizard modes I have ever seen!!!

More than anything, I love great pinball, and I find TWD delivers it in spades! Amazing pin. Cheers

#6171 1 year ago
Quoted from Damien:

No not at all. Actually none of my games (even earlier WMS) have the grain showing as prominently as this. Sometimes really fine vertical lines are sanding marks left from the drum sander as they smooth the entire PF but then you'll see them even over the plastic inserts.

TWD in particular usually has a thick perfect clear when you get it NIB (which then gets some pretty heavy dimpling from presumably softer wood - more so than earlier Sterns or MM, AFM, etc)

Did you buy it used? (NM - read more after your post)

I've seen a couple of other TWDs and didn't notice the ribbing. Even saw one last night and put a good light to it.

We'll see what Stern says. In the meantime, I'm loving this game! I got to Horde, but really not sure how it even happened. I need to figure out the rules!

Also, can anyone tell me how to lower the power of the shooter lane eject. It's my first Stern and I can't seem to find it in the menu.

Thanks.

If someone could check under their apron for what this looks like I would greatly appreciate it. The hole I need clarification on is for the service rails. I’m assuming it’s a T nut, but I don’t have any with 3 prongs.

Its for the service rails. I have a pro, so I had to drill that myself. 3-prong is standard I think.

Yes, is there an adjustment? Mine was a little strong but I played on, and as I went to do some maintenance for a little "ping" on the ball eject, I see I ignored it for too long. I guess some welding is in my future...

Not sure. No one replied.

Let's try again... Does anyone know if you can adjust the shooter lane ball eject strength? If so, what menu is it in?

#6178 1 year ago

I don’t thik there is a setting for just the auto plunger coil. Changing the coil pulse power may be your only option. Short of swapping the coil itself

My friends Ghostbusters has the option, so thought this might too. Guess it's the new system.

#6180 1 year ago

I'm going to replace the spring with something stiffer. That should slow it down some...

Quoted from setzkor:

You could also try adding a rubber ring to the back of the coil arm. I did that on a fish tales to reduce the strength of the flopping fish topper and it worked well.

#6182 1 year ago

Read the ruleset and I'm still totally confused! Even made it to Horde, and not even sure how got there haha!

So as far as I understand, to get one of the weapons, you have to take down the drop target (not sure if it has to be one that isn't lit yet) and then start a mode (such as CDC).

The you just have to do the minimum amount of shots to that mode to get the weapon.

Am I correct here?

No. Modes and weapons for Horde are mostly unrelated. The weapons for Horde light during a "multi-kill". There are about a dozen ways to begin a multi-kill. Mostly they are lit by making two or three shots towards a particular thing. When you begin a multi-kill one of the weapon inserts light. After you light all six you can shoot the drop target and then the Woodbury shot to begin Horde.

#6184 1 year ago

Here’s the list from pinwiki on how to get a multi kill (weapon inserts)

Three Barn shots during Barn mode.
Three CDC ramps during CDC mode.
Completing CDC mode.
Three Riot shots during Riot mode.
Two Tunnel shots during Tunnel mode.
Completing Tunnel mode.
Two Arena ramps during Arena mode.
Completing Arena mode.

Makes sense now because I just played a game and the first two weapons took a while to get, but the last four came quickly.

Had Horde lit, but with two balls left, I couldn't make it! It seems almost impossible to hit intentionally.

Now next question... How do I start Terminus?

#6186 1 year ago

You start Terminus by first lighting all five mode inserts. Then you complete target banks to light the mode shots again, as if starting another mode. Hitting any mode shot will start Terminus.

Quoted from YeOldPinPlayer:

Do you have to complete each mode, or just start it?

Also, do you guys get brutal drains out of the tunnel when the ball drops out? And prison magnet also spits a lot of balls down the middle. To be expected?

You said you are toxic, not me, and I agree with you. I understand empathy, I also understand "trouble maker". You knew about the ribbing before you bought your machine, why didn't you check it first? Call me whatever you like, I will always say something when you are looking to cause issues and stir BS. There are plenty of genuine good people on this thread, just like the AFMr and MMr threads.

good night I have a pro version recently and if I do not understand it wrong ... there is a part in the multi kill that I do not like ... for example, when doing 3 times cdc you get a multikill..and get another one for complete that way ... it seems like an unnecessary 2x1 .... I do not know if it will be silly what I think ... hahaha

#6194 1 year ago

I met Tom Payne (Jesus) and Denise Crosby (Mary, leader of Terminus) at Monsterpalooza yesterday. They signed my translite, which joins my bloody Lucille that hangs above my game that I got signed by Steven Yeun (Glenn) in September.

They were both very nice!

#6195 1 year ago

Weird thing happened... After upgrading from 1.56 to 1.60, I've noticed twice so far, that when Well Walker multiball, I drain one ball, and although the "shoot again" is flashing, I do not get the ball back.

Anyone else get this?

#6196 1 year ago

So after hitting Horde on the first day, this game has been completely humiliating me!

My average ball times is 1:10, and I just can't get anything going. I hate that you get a mode started and the game screws you with a stupid drain from the prison magnet or from dropping out of the tunnel.

Not sure about this game!

When the ball is in prison magnet I use a “shimmy” of the game. Not a nudge but a slight shimmy back and forth within the tilt. On my Premium many times the magnet will
Sling ball to side rather than drop straight down the middle when I shimmy. My daughter came up with this.

As for Tunnel you have to really watch the ball when in the pops and learn a feel how it will exit. Once you spend some time on it you will get a good idea where the SDTM exit is and can nudge it.

Or you can sell the game.
