Quoted from pipes:

Damn, that looks amazing! I wish you could redo all of the cabinet art.

Thanks at the time I was considering retheming my whole machine, I was probably going the decal route if I ever did or a PF overlay as another option. I couldnt bring myself to sand a brand new machine. lol....

Has anyone with a TWD installed that shaker motor adjustment dial? My shaker is way too much and its irritating me. It shakes so hard, I think it actually triggers the well walker. What i want to know is it safe, and did it work well? I could always try adjusting the weights on the shaker but last time I tried it broke 3 drill bits just trying to get that damn screw out

Thanks

Not a fan, some of the characters are hard to recognize. But art is subjective.

I’m assuming you already went into the settings and lowered the shaker motor setting? I believe there is 3 - max, medium and low - or something like that. I have mine set on the middle setting. It doesn’t change the power, just the frequency of the usage of the motor.

I actually own #3 of 30. I think the characters are easily recognizable if you see it in person. I think it’s a huge upgrade from what came with the game and it is really well done. However, as you said, art is subjective!

Well I changed the weights on the shaker motor and while under Playfield decided to adjust well walker switch. Well it broke .. anyone have any suggestions ? It looks like its an easy replacement the problem I have is it looks soldered onto the wire harness. I may need help on that one.

Lots of YT videos out there on how to solder. This would be an easy 1-2 minute job. Should find the switch on Any pinball parts website.

Thanks for advice I’m sure it’s easy but me and hot things just don’t work out right , every time in damn chem class when I had to use stupid benson burner I would break this that and get burned .. I have a pinball repair guy nearby I’ll contact him and see if I can send it to him for repair shouldn’t cost too much .. unless there is a way to solder without heat ? Also I would have to take off the solder from original switch ?

The YouTube videos I mentioned cover all your questions. If you can use a lighter, you can solder. I couldn’t change a light bulb 5 years ago. I’m very comfortable with soldering.

You can do this job with a $40 iron and $10 of solder.

I was actually able to finally get the weight off. I adjusted it to 180 degrees.. it makes like no shaking at all.. so now I gotta take it out again and do 90 degrees.. I think that will fix my shaking motor issues. No for this bicycle girl mod .. sigh.. getting that wire in the hole is freaking hard.

Does anyone have the green bicycle mod off of ebay? I just tried installing it and it doesn't work.. looking for some tips. I threaded the wire down the hole, and connected the new cable to the PCB block using the first two pins as discussed in instructions, then replaced the old wire on the first two pins again. Is this wrong?

I contacted the guy who sells the mod on Ebay. Turns out the wiring on the mod block is incorrect, and he will send me a new one. I kept wondering why this thing wasnt' working. Tried like 100 times. So if someone has this mod and it doesn't work, contact the seller!

What brand shaker motor do you have, and what issues are you experiencing with it? It makes sense that you would feel very little shaking with the weights set at 180 degrees, since they are essentially cancelling each other out.

I think its the Stern shaker. I had similar problems w/ my Tron, was shaking the play field like crazy. Gameroomguys adjusted the weights on the Tron and its been great since. The problem with TWD, I think the amount of shaking was actually triggering well walker switch! So I will try 90 degrees, I think that will fix problems

I got this mod from Judge Dredd in UK. Works great. He is a good seller and creator of his mods. He will make it right.I got his stuff on a few of my games.

Anyone hazard a guess at how the many TWD machines were made? I feel like there must be 7,500 of all three models out there.

I feel like there must be 12,000 of them out there. Just has to be.

#7923 34 days ago
Quoted from wtuttle:

My best guess would be less than 2500 world wide. That is inclusive of pro premium and LE.

That is not very many! Interesting range we have so far: 2,500-12,500.

In a recent interview with Gary stern on H2H podcast, he said they have made 60-70 games a day. (Avg is probably lower, 50? Also probably even lower in the old factory)
He also said they have around 20 titles a year on the lines.
TWD ran for 4 years with varying demand.
Playing with those numbers, and taking a lot of wild guesses about how often it was run I would guess there were about 2500 made across all versions. Could be much higher. I don’t think it’s much lower than 1500 though.

Never been better. Won the NKYPO and now headed to City Champ!

Btw the more I think of it, I’m not sure Stern has produced any game more than TWD.

#7932 33 days ago

Itching to get one but haven’t been able to snag a premium at a reasonable price yet. Game is fun though!

Just got a TWD Pro.

Any advice for switching out a few GI bulbs to give the game a little bit more color?

#7935 27 days ago

But seriously has anyone tried switching to warm white GI?

I did the same thing a month ago. I have no idea why Stern went with cold white on such a dark themed game. I went with warm white Comet LED bulbs for the GI and inserts. I have a few coloured Red LED bulbs in the inserts (Blood Bath & stab targets). Do it - it is a much better look. The bright white when playing in the dark was my only complaint with the game. It is perfect now.

Those warm whites look nice. I'm thinking I need to change things up a bit!

Guys my well walker is still triggering ghost shots and I can't figure it out. I even toned down the shaker motor and got my well walker switch replaced. I think its triggering near the pop bumpers but not sure. Anyone have similar problems?

Simple switch adjustment. Make it less sensitive. It’s a little more difficult to adjust a cherry switch, but it’s still pretty easy. There’s only one on the well walker. Can’t miss it.

Yes the last time I adjusted it it shattered and I had to get it replaced . Do u really think it’s the switch ? I feel like there is something else triggering it

#7947 26 days ago

The Z-connector that connects the well walker to the main wiring harness? Try reseating/replacing it.

It’s always been the switch every time I’ve heard of this happening. Anything is possible though. How did it shatter? Did the actuator just come off or did it snap in half? What did you use to adjust it?

I used a switch adjustment tool and the top metal thing broke right off the plastic switch. So I bought a new one and had some solder it for me and test it . It’s like brand new . That’s why I’m questioning if it’s actually the switch

Try the zconnector like some one else suggested. If that’s making a poor connection I guess that could cause issues too. But to me it sounds like switch adjustment.

If I remember right, this is a normally closed switch so when you hit the WW, it opens and registers the hit. Pop the hood and see if when the WW is at rest, it’s barely pushing the switch closed.

Put the game in switch test while you’re doing this. If every little vibration is opening that switch, it could be your issue.
