Quoted from Zdoor:

Both fun. Play totally different and TWD code is much further along. Depends what you like. New kiss code will be dropping soon but will still take some time to be complete. If you're not a Kiss fan, you may be happier with TWD. There is not really a bad choice between those 2 though...

hehe gio dropping the knowledge...cause he knows i'm gonna buy my final decision from him..
thanks guys. any other suggestion appreciated.

Quoted from gweempose:

I do not agree. Other than when the BG ramp is up, the pro plays slower. Because there isn't a drop target, the ball winds up in the shooter lane a lot more, and thus back in the pops.

Other than the bg ramp ?? Your counterdicting yourself

Quoted from QuarterGrabber:

Now I fully expect pro owners to come in and say how much better the flow is on the pro like they always do for each title.

Quoted from Delta9:

The pro rocks the flow is faster

As expected. Told ya.

I think the BG ramp being up actually makes the LE faster flowing too. On the LE you hit the BG bash target and the ball goes immediately back into play. On the pro you have to wait for it to go all the way around the ramp, then drop down, then roll back to the filppers. I bet if someone timed it the ball returns to play or to the flippers way faster after hitting the BG target on the LE.

Our family has a pro and we absolutely love it. We were considering upgrading to a premium because of the way everyone was talking about how great it is. Went to the York show and played the premium, and my one son and I did not see it worth spending the extra cash on it. Some of the features are different and offer a different element to the game but don't really make it or break it IMO. We both thought the crossbow was horrible. The BG head was cool. The WW magnet and WB drop target were so so, could take it or leave it. Didn't get to try out these walker bombs, that would be the most exciting thing to me. Everyone has different opinions, that's why it's best for YOU to play them if you can and make an informed decision. Reviews are great and give insight, but playing the game is king. No matter which version you get, this code is very well done and you should love the game play. The game is my favorite in my collection at the moment.

Thanks for the comments. I have only played the premium and would probably have to sell 2 games to get one now. They are around £6500 here in the uk. The pro I could probably get away with only selling 1 game like a bdk and a bit of cash. Most of my games are for rewrites or board making these days, but I really like the theme of twd it has me wondering if it's time for a change. I like having 1 game just for playing on with my teenage son.

Re the Woodbury drop target I didn't notice (when playing my friend premium) many rebound/indirect shots to the drop target. We found that shot quite a challenge to make so doesn't seem like that would slow down flow much without it

Yeah I ended up with the Pro for pretty much the same reasons you stated (additional features were luke warm to me). Some I liked (lighting, spinners), but others I didn't really care for (drop target, bicycle girl ramp/bash, crossbow).

Absolutely great machine! I definitely didn't need to have a premium/LE to enjoy it though.

For what its worth, I added a pair of spinners to my TWD Pro. They look pretty good, I think.

Quoted from e4mafia:

Oh yeah I forgot you did that. How did you end up making them score? I think you were going to tie them into the ramp switches, right?

#761 3 years ago

Yeah, made a simple little jumper for them to add on to the connector for the ramp switches under the playfield. Works well, to a point - they don't fully score. I believe its because of how fast the switch is triggered. You'll get maybe 10 rotations, but it will only recognize 2 or 3 at most - the first, then the last 2 as it slows down. Anybody have any ideas about how to get around that?

Been thinking about adding a flasher under their respective playfield inserts as well, but haven't really sat down to figure out how to wire it in. Should be simple to just tap it to the source for the other flashers, but Im concerned about if the spinner switch sticks closed at all, that I might damage the rest of the circuit. Are typical Stern flashers controlled on/off by the boards in the case of a spinner? I don't have a machine with a spinner to compare.

I've never played the LE but have a pro and love it kiss needs an update to make a fair comparison but it has great patential that's for sure TWD awesome rules and awesome theme.

Yeah, just connect it to a different switch. Like the rollovers or the pop bumpers, they are meant to recognize fast consecutive hits.

#766 3 years ago

Hooking it to the pops would be great for scoring I think, but won't it also fire the pop every time it's triggered?

Ordered my BG light mod from Gnassel yesterday. Seems like a nice guy and very helpful. Will most likely arrive before my TWD does.

Will definitely go with shaker and probably pdi glass.

What about the Stern splatter armor? How does it look in person?

#770 3 years ago

I also ordered from Gnassel yesterday and I agree with you. Seems like a very nice guy. Answered me back right away on a Saturday evening

#771 3 years ago

Bg mod. Is a very big deal! I think the next biggest is the cross bow. Laser is pretty fail cuz the time it takes for ball to reach target but. It feels like Something u want to achieve . Where as b4 it just didn't seem to be very cool.
Good luck.

#772 3 years ago

I added the original STERN shaker last night. Quick and easy installation, great mod. Should each LE having shipped from the factory!

Just helped a customer of mine upload a few clips into his TWD using his autistic sons name for some of the MB features and other call outs. The look on his kids face after hearing his name was all the payment I needed for that service call. I aint gonna lie, we both got teary eyed.

I've got PDI, shaker and think both are must haves. I also happen to think the bloody armor on the LE is a must have (but my entire game room is color themed to black and red). The BG light is probably the best bang for the buck as far as mods go too. Huge difference and not too pricey.

Never noticed how washed out the picture is, but the bloody armor really looks great on the LE.

#776 3 years ago

I like the mods listed as most popular. I thought the list would include the train tracks, signs, burning barn and more on the pf stuff

Hoping to join club. If anyone trading selling in MD/PA/VA.

That looks fantastic - didnt realise the Stern splatter armour had bloody hand prints as if someone had just killed a Zombie near the game and thought, "Heard the code on this was good, might have a game or 2."

Hey folks, I just made deposit on a TWD Premium Refinery Edition and I'm beyond pumped to get it home and start playing. I've heard there is a really good alternate sound file for TWD LE/Premium out there...Can anyone point me to where I can get those files? Thanks very much!

Believe it or not there are 4 sound replacement options . this thread should contain links to all of them. I do 2 of them. One being Evil Walking Dead (based on the Evil Dead movie Evil Dead2) Enjoy

BTW the Bicycle Girl Light mod is another must-have. I tried to get Lyman or someone to answer as to why this feature was never provided a light on the Dead Flip stream last night. But no answer.

Wow great, thanks for that link. I can't believe I didn't find it before while searching on my own, but that will be a great help. I'm having the Refinery guys put all the trappings in, including the great bicycle girl mod.

What version of TWD do you have? Pinball customs was suppose to make a nice set of boney flippers painted like rotting flesh but he never delivered on his promise

If you own a premium/LE the bats won't fit because the crossbow will hit them. You will have to modify the bats by shaving them down.

Awesome Thread... glad to be part of Pinside.com and the TWD Club! We have spent the past several days reading through this thread and have enjoyed seeing all of the pictures of your TWDs... thanks for sharing!

We own a TWD Pro that we are absolutely in love with; great title, great set of rules, great shots, etc.

We are a family of 5 who not only LOVE pinball and play it as much as we can, but we are also a close family who owns and operates our own company since 2006. So with us constantly working and playing pinball together... we brought both LOVEs together and started creating MODs for pinball machines. As you'll see from the pictures, we have several MODs for TWD (Pro, L.E. and Premium editions) and are available on our website www.ulekstore.com > Personalized Items/Gifts > Pinball MODs

PLEASE NOTE: If you do order from our website, please use the following Coupon Code of: PINSIDE to save 10% on your entire order at checkout.

We will also have all of these MODs on Pinside's Market Place within the next week or so.

Thanks for looking and keep those pictures of your TWD's coming!

I just sold off the pro and got a premium. So here is my unbiased comment.

Both games are the same speed. One is not faster than the other. Features like drop targets and bash toys are not flow based toys. Shooting a ramp where the ball returns cleanly to the flippers is flow. Shooting a bash toy where the ball wobbles around and maybe lands on a flipper is not flow. The Woodbury shot is very hard to hit and not shot often enough to make a difference in game flow. Therefore, the drop target is not a noticeable flow benefit.

Unfortunately, each game plays a bit differently. My latest one holds the ball in the pops more and the left outlane is way more active. I had to move the outlane post but it barely helped and I disabled the right most pop bumper. I also disabled the well walker magnet after it tossed the ball into the outlane just once. That definitely does not make for a funner game.

I went to your website to see what you offer but it's far too much of a mess to navigate. First page is just a bunch of random pictures and I see no obvious navigation helpers nor can I easily find where twd mods might be. After 15 seconds I gave up.

Edit: I spent more time here and found the direct pinball link: http://www.ulekstore.com/category_s/1948.htm

It's at least possible to see what's there.

I beleive my post was a rebuttal to someone saying the pro is "faster", which most if not all pro owners say to justify a cut down machine. Nothing to do with flow. And hitting the BG toy definently returns the ball faster. And you are on crack if you don't realize not having that Woodbury drop target makes the pro WAY slower and gives it WAY less flow. C'mon who are you trying to kid? Yourself? As far as not hitting that shot often, I call BS on that. When I was playing a pro I almost smashed the glass out of frustration on having to wait for that shot again and again

Thanks for the feedback and checking out our site. And yes... we agree with you. lol We currently have over 2,700 items for sale (and not just Pinball MODs) so we are currently revamping our website.

The easiest way to see what all of our MODs that we carry for Walking Dead Pinball is by putting: Walking Dead in the search engine and all of and ONLY our Pinball MODs show up. Hope this helps.

Thanks.

#798 3 years ago

What color/type LEDs are you guys using for the Multi-Kill weapon inserts. My game had blue bulbs there when I got it. Looked terrible. I put white Cointaker double LEDs in them instead. They are a bit too bright. I was thinking maybe an orange or red in there. What are you guys using?

#799 3 years ago

Stock has double leds white cold

#800 3 years ago

How do you relight the white walker kill inserts?
