Given how important and deadly the drop targets are they needed a little zip , ,translucent ones from zitt, and an amber led strip underneath and a red comet optimax bulb behind

Wow! Someone’s having some mod fun.

#8755 1 year ago

Hello friends. I would like to know how you have set the level of the machine so that when the ball falls from the bumpers it does not enter directly into the sump .... I have it like that ... but it seems that it is not the right level

It depends on the machine. Some people have added a flipper rubber to the lane guide to success, others have had zero problems. I typically level it so it pops off the lane guide and to the left flipper. Not sure if this really helps, but that's what I got for ya.

This measures the steepness of the game, not left to right. Though the steepness of the game may affect how the ball comes out of the pops, I would think that the left/right level would affect it more. Check the level in between the flippers and up near the prison as well.

#8758 1 year ago

mannymasy
I have the bubble in the middle.
Level from left and right.
95% ok.

If you still have issues then adjust your pops so that they just need a touch to kick.
That way its always going to bump the ramp side.

I think it might be more of an issue with the coil sleeve , I will look into it

did you fix your well walker?

Well walker is fixed I believe. The spring seemed very loose. I had it in storage for over a year, so perhaps it being upright, it loosened it up. I stretched and wrapped it to make it tighter but was told that the stern target springs are the replacement for it, so ill buy more next time I pickup some parts.

#8760 1 year ago

That is the most modded out pro I’ve ever seen

#8761 1 year ago

Can anyone shoot me a picture behind the drop targets of the rubber? The reason I ask is I have a 2 inch rubber behind there but it was catching on one of the drop targets so I switched it to an inch and a half rubber and it’s working flawlessly now but didn’t know if I have the rubber too high now or if it should go lower or maybe the 2 inch one needed to go lower

Rubber Ring chart in the manual say 1 1/2" ID goes in there.

did you fix your well walker?

So tweaking the spring did not actually fix my well walker. It helped it but still having the issue of it staying open. I feel like the whole well walker is loose but havent been able to see how to tighten it?

#8766 1 year ago

Is it possible to raise the legs a little more on the left side? Thank you all for the answers

#8767 1 year ago

I would raise the right side so the ball when travelling out if the pops with hit the black rubber post at the ramp entrance. Thus will feed the ball to the left flipper

#8768 1 year ago

ok thanks, i will try that option

#8769 1 year ago

In The Dark!

I'm having trouble seeing the ball during many of the modes in TWD. I get that the lighting is supposed to be chaotic and generally dark, but many modes seem to kill the GI altogether - or at least the white GI - and suddenly I'm all but blind when tracking the ball. Has anyone here ever used brighter GI bulbs? I was thinking about the absurdly bright Optimus Maximus bulbs from Comet. Not the entire GI, but a fistful scattered around. I have one OpMax wedge for a spotlight and it's stupid bright. If only I had a #44 instead, I could try it in my GI. Even the throbbing red GI during Horde leaves me basically blind. I have factory GI, which, as many you know, is clear-lens 2SMD. Pinball Life makes his "Bright-Fucking-Bulb" 4-SMD's, but they are lensless, which is less ideal for GI. Is the OpMax my only alternative to 2-SMD frosted if I need more illumination in my GI?

#8770 1 year ago

Putting crazy bright GI lights in the game is only going to make it worse. It will increase the contrast of those moments that turn the lights off and back on. You’ll need an always on option like adding spot lights everywhere or pinstadiums that aren’t connected to the GI circuit.

#8771 1 year ago

Thanks, Erik.
Good point!
Still, more intense red GI will help me during Horde.

#8772 1 year ago

Add a little room light, like turn on a small light . I have one of our basement lights on and it helps tremendously while still playing in a dim room.

Neon lights always add the right touch of light id say..

I think chuck wurt has it about right.

One of the many things that makes TWD hard is the periods of very low light such as during crossbow,( I have old man eyes)

Putting a trough led strip tapped into a constant source might give enough light to at least see the ball on the flipper.

Another idea would be to use the pinduino from prof pinball , with led strips out of sight on the backplate and in the trough or the apron. this is powered independent of the gi and has some pretty nice lighting effects activated by flasher and coils in the gameplay as well you can program your own effects or modify the existing ones if you want. I just got done putting one in my LOTR it is very cool . I probably will put in TWD as well.

#8775 11 months ago

I've noticed that occasionally when getting a Woodbury and Extra ball at the same time the drop target jumps twice and cancels out Woodbury.
Has anyone else had this happen?

#8776 11 months ago

Still my favorite game. Love CDC

Good luck... I was looking a while back. Seems they are like non existent these days...

#8779 11 months ago

When the toppers to show up they are going for more than original MSRP, I've seen people asking $500 - $600 for them... not sure what they end up selling for, but they aren't cheap!

#8780 11 months ago

Maybe not as cool, but my topper is only $125 (+ shipping, + illumination kit, if you want that). This is a 2-piece, powercoated metal. The depth effect looks great in person.

#8781 11 months ago

Just added the railroad mods from Matt at Back Alley Creations Great quality and looks awesome (installed in just a few minutes).

Does anyone know the size of hex standoffs used for the right ramp in this game? I need to buy a replacement. 6/32?

#8783 11 months ago

Looked up at the dmd and had last man standing ready. I hit the Woodbury shot twice and didn't notice any mode start?
Dont think I've ever gotten there before so wasn't sure what happens.

#8784 11 months ago

LMS is a four ball multi-ball so you would notice if it started. Which version of the code are you on?

that's a lot of walker kills!! ,excellent playing!! but so frustrating to get there and not see LMS …. did you get to 115 during multiball or singleball ? ( wondering if it will only start if in singleball?) was the last man standing insert lit or flashing on the playfield and the side flashers flashing?

It's weird. I didn't think I had that many kills, I'm not that good at the game. I just happened to glance up at the DMD and saw it said LMS was ready. I don't remember what was lit.

#8787 11 months ago

the only thing I can think of is maybe you needed to drop the 3 drop targets and then hit woodbury to start it?

#8788 11 months ago

Only need the kills and be in single ball mode. On the premium you need the Woodbury target down to make the starting shot

Made it into the club today. Twd premium. This game is tough! And holy crap that bicycle girl ramp is steep! Loving having this in my collection so far! Any tips for a newb twd owner?

Congratulations on your purchase. I would put the Cleland sound code in the game if it isn’t already.

As for tips. First hit the Prison until the insert lights are lit (might as well collect the prison yard shots while you are playing a mode). Try and have Bicycle Ready before you start CDC because you can then two Multikill inserts lit at the same time from left ramp shots. Use the x2 shot and Multiball on Barn and Riot modes if possible (this can lead to some HUGE mode scores).
And most important of all, don’t be scared to nudge and shake the game. The outlanes are lethal so keep the ball away from there as much as possible.

Lastly, enjoy one of the finest games ever made.

#8791 11 months ago

I think the premium has a mod for the CDC ramp to make it a little more... approachable?

#8792 11 months ago

I have a Spider-Man and the left ramp is backhandable from the left flipper... tried that yesterday... TWD said. YOU SHALL NOT PASS

#8793 11 months ago

If the game is used, rebuild the flippers before modding the left ramp. It might not be needed.

#8794 11 months ago
Quoted from Rickwh:

I can backhand the left ramp on my Pro.

Quoted from Isjack:

Lotta the at least later-built models have zero issues with the left ramp. Mine was smooth and reliable out of the box. Still is as I was playing it last night. One of the easiest shots in the game.

The "mod" is an extra $3 ramp flap stuck on with double sided tape for $30

#8796 11 months ago
Quoted from stoptap:

Easy on a pro. But,in my opinion, bicycle girl is one of the best shots in pinball.

Cliffy's bicycle girl protector is needed against wear under the flap. It also adds a little lift for the ball. Easy to make on mine, gotta have good flippers,though.

The subtle differences between the Pro and Premium/Le are very interesting on TWD. I find the Riot shot easier on the Premium. Is it more open due to the different ramps or am I imagining it ?
My favourite shot is Woodbury. Very satisfying to hit but terrifying when Horde is lit.

Riot is easy to hit. Love the Woodbury shot, too. CPU controlled lighting takes a little getting used to.

The Riot shot is tighter on the Pro.
TWD is such a fantastic game. Brutal but so rewarding (like Iron Man). I played it earlier today and had a 300 million plus game followed by about 10 games in 5 minutes.
