Quoted from YeOldPinPlayer:

There is already a pinned rules doc that is more thorough than the linked one.

I think you're missing the point of the Game Guides...
--- Visually Interactive Rulesheet - see the playfield and have the shots mapped for you
--- Much faster / better to get familiar with the playfield and rules quickly
--- Much better on a phone, and for quick look ups
------ Rules are much more condensed (on purpose)
------ Rules expand when clicked on - starting collapsed -> for quick indexing

The full 10 page rulesheet(s) are great, but....
--- Everyone doesn't learn the same way - the visuals are key in the Game Guides
--- They can be overwhelming at first - and take time to digest
--- Best for the "deep" understanding (sometimes)
--- The Game Guides are much better if you are at a tournament and need a quick lookup

Why not utilize both???

Do you really want to be discouraging, and push people to drop the effort of creating things like Game Guides???

Is there a trick to removing the right plastic return lane protector on TWD? It doesn’t seem to slide up over the post it is attached to. I wasn’t sure if it was just stuck or if I have to remove the post from the play field. I just want to install a red plastic protector underneath the current plastic. Thanks in advance for the help.

Was looking for the outlane extenders. Can’t locate for sale ad and are you guys recommending one or the other?

Is you’rs different than mine? I have 2 Phillips screws that hold that in place. You just unscrew them and pull them out from the top. They are long screws that go through the playfield into T nuts.

Thanks. It’s the same and I’ve removed the screws. It’s just that the plastic won’t slide up the post attached to the left of the ramp. I’m afraid I’m going to break the plastic trying to remove it. I just thought it would slide off.

Ok I think I understand. I thought it was just the return lane plastic at the bottom. If you’re trying to remove the sling plastic, the top screw needs to come out (attaching the ramp to a hex post). Then the post unscrews.

Perfect. Thanks. I’ll try unscrewing the post. I appreciate the help. I figured it was better to ask than to force something.

The pro version is done. Anyone interested in a run? If so pm me.

Just ordered the color dmd.. 420.00! Pretty expensive upgrade. Can someone recommend the latest and greatest firmware with updated sounds/music?

I've got the cleland mix on 1.60 I believe it is on a ColorDMD... I think the ColorDMD mod is the best bang for your buck on any upgrade... personal opinion of course.

Quoted from Oneangrymo:

Personal preferences vary... but general consensus is to go with Cleland’s masterpiece with callouts taken from the show. That’s my vote at least.

After I install the dmd do I just update the code for Cleland like I normally would by putting usb in that board on the backbox?

Yup. And it’s a must have for fans of the show

Quoted from Oneangrymo:

Yes.

Sometimes with some modified code updates I’ll get a message that says not valid update after its complete but it still works properly.

#7772 4 days ago

Coincidentally, I installed a colorDMD on my Pro last night that was already running the Cleland code. I installed the most updated chroma.rom and all was good. ColorDMD is the best mod of all time.

#7773 4 days ago

Is the Cleland code for sounds or for visual(color dmd)?

Only sound, and well worth it.

** An Upcoming Run of TWD Premiums From Stern? **

Who is hearing rumblings about a run of TWD's this spring/summer? Anyone? I was talking to another collector, telling him about my hunt for a HUO TWD, and he casually asked if I was hearing that a run of NIB games might be coming. I told him he was the first to mention it. Is he onto something? We did get a run of MET Premiums last summer, so why not some TWD's *this* summer? Who has the inside scoop?

You, apparently.

#7777 2 days ago

I think you could be right as I heard mutterings of toppers being made too. I would like the Stern Topper for my machine, been looking for ages. My TWD is a keeper..

So something strange happened last night that I can’t figure out. Played a crappy game (extremely low score) but apparently good enough for 1st - WTF? Put my initials in and i was pretty much everything champ. Every single score had reset to default except for the GC. How does that happen? I played the night before and everything was there, no problem. Didn’t even touch the game and everything reset itself - and all but the GC!? Anyone have this happen? What could it be? I played for about an hour and I didn’t notice any weird stuff with the game other than that.

By default the game resets the high scores except GC every 2,000 games. Congrats! Your game has now been played 2,000 times. Haha

You can change this setting to "Off" if you don't want to lose the high scores.

Edit: Changed word used to "Off." Standard Adjustment #37

Haha, thanks. Two and a half years of hard work and dedication right there.

Quoted from Sparky:

You can change this setting to "Never" if you don't want to lose the high scores.

Thanks guys! I had no idea this feature existed. It’s incredibly annoying so I will absolutely change it. Is this just a Stern thing?

You may want to check that your running the latest code if it's been 2.5 years. Should be version 1.6

Nah they all do it. CGC, JJP, Stern etc.

#7784 1 day ago

It is the latest code. I put the Cleland version on it maybe a year ago, not sure exactly. That’s what kind of has me confused as well - there’s no way I put 2000 games on it in a year.....or did I

Edit: yup, it shows over 2000 plays in the audits

Good to know. Thanks.

Had to put up a new GC to make me feel better

Standard Adjustment #37. You want "Off" not "Never." I think Bally/Williams games are "Never."

#7788 1 day ago

I need to go through all my games to turn that off.
