Quoted from Jason_Jehosaphat:

62M for your best! Nice work!
Bowen mentions in his tutorial that the points available in Arena are scant and he doesn't invest much effort in the mode. Ditto: BG.

Thanks dude. It wasn't intentional. Had a 4x multiplier going that scored 28m. Had no idea what I was doing. I really like the flow of this game. The dots and callouts thanks to Cleland make this game so immersive.

On a side note, anyone that hasn't collected the Mezel Tower mod and the Hooked on Pinball Barn mod, I can't recommend them enough. Really add to the light show and look awesome.

Decoding Inserts After L.M.S. Please Help.

Each of these photos was taken at the conclusion/completion of an L.M.S. wizard mode. (Caveat: my game is set to four balls, with a ten-second ball-save, and 100, not 115, Walkers.)
If you've been there, you know that there's a long/amusing animation that rewards the player and can't be double-flipped away. While it runs, the main insert on some of or all of the main shots flickers like a torch in red/orange.
You'll notice that in each of these photos, one main-shot insert is *not* lit.
Why?
Much more often they are *all* lit when the mode is completed.
What does that mean about one's performance in the mode?
How do your inserts look when you finish L.M.S?

When I get there in 50 years, I’ll let you know!

Got my game today, love this pin!

Aaargh. I love to hate this game. Managed to get to LMS once in over 2 years. Siege maybe 3 times and only if I try specifically for that goal. I do manage to get to Horde a little more often now though - great mode! Geese this is a tough game. Between this and IM it is a wonder I am still sane! I love how it kicks your ass and makes you hit that start button again or sometimes just flip the switch off and walk away.

I may have to seriously think about adjusting my settings to make it a little easier. Owning this game makes me want to throw pinballs at my TV when I watch the show! Aaaargh!

Quick question. Anyone got the speaker acrylics and lights?

I love them.

But the backing is not on the brains spurting out on the left. So when the lights are red you can’t see the brains.

Sort of defeats the purpose. Does anyone else have these and do they have backing on the brains?

Thanks

EDIT: ok if you have it on cycling colours, the brains appear when it’s not red. So that’s cool. Just was planning to leave it on red. Now not sure. Would like to know what others have.

Have the same acrylic frame kit - and with the red colored light it looks pretty cool and detailed enough for me.

Quoted from MightyGrave:

Ok. So you see the brains when it’s red. I don’t. So you must have backing behind the brains bit as well. I will reach out to the supplier. Thanks!

EDIT. Looked on speaker light kits site, there are 2 versions. One is black which silhouettes with red light nicely, but isn’t that visible when it’s off. The red mirror one which I have does seem to have no backing where the brains are so is not designed for constant red light. But gives an animation when it cycles. I’ve asked Doug to confirm.

Doug says yes. The red acrylic does not have a backing on the brains bit to allow it to animate with cycling colours.

You could probably stick some electrical tape on the back of the brain splat area, trim it to size with an exact-o knife and that would block the light. I've never tried that myself...then again, I've got multiple complements on the etched splatter and no complaints.

Thanks Doug. More a case of not realising it did this. My ignorance to blame. I like it now. Cool effect.

#9511 4 days ago

Have links (and videos?) of the two speaker/acryllic sets you're talking about? I am especially curious about the animations.

#9512 4 days ago

Ok. Will post once I remember how to YouTube.

#9514 3 days ago

Thanks Doug!!! Hopefully some more people will get these great acrylics because of my confusion. They’re very cool!

Best bang for bucks.

WOO! Got to Horde mode for the first time today! (after owning for a year... yeah, I suck)

And then choked, getting only 8M points...

At least I didn't choke before getting to Horde -- almost did. Was on 2nd ball, went for the Woodbury shot, missed, SDTM.... So got to see some new animations!

#9516 3 days ago

Didn't see it specifically mentioned, but you can't collect the EB during multiball. That may be what is happening on the posts I'm seeing about EB not collecting. It may be a setting, but on all the TWDs I've played on route, it behaves this way. EB must be collected during single ball play.

I'm ashamed to admit how long it has been since I've made it to Horde.

I thought you could collect during extra ball but if there is a ball in the shooter lane or if it recently just left the shooter lane and the ball save was still on it wouldn’t register.

I’ve never seen a single TWD behave this way unless there’s balls being autolaunched or if ball save is still running. Once the dust settles, collect away.

Hmmmm. I must be incorrect. I trust your knowledge.

Now I will say I can’t prove it at the moment, but I’ve never experienced an instance (outside of early code), when you were completely locked out of earning a EB during MB. Hopefully someone with the game can confirm.

It could be that I was playing games with early code.

I played one just last year in Lexington that had day one code on it. Haha. So weird.

#9524 3 days ago

You can collect for sure EB during MB but not while the balls are being launched. As soon as they have launched you can shoot Woodbury and collect the EB

100% sure this is the case on latest code.

I thought ball save had to be off too though, no?

#9526 3 days ago

Correct

#9527 3 days ago

Yep. Confirmed over here too. As soon as ball save was off, EB was able to be collected.

#9528 2 days ago

Was wondering if anybody had installed Pinstadiums in their Walking Dead Pro at all?
Thinking of doing this on mine. Anybody have playfield pics with it installed.

Don't do it - ruins the feel of the dark ambient

otherwise you would be collecting the eb just by draining a ball during the multiballs. no need to make this creampuff of a game any easier!!

Well I guess I play more of the premium. You can add logic to make sure the spinner is hit before the EB switch. Pro that’s a fair point. No way to do that.

I think this is one of the best lit games. Except when crossbow starts!

TWD is the only game that I haven't installed Pinstadiums on. As others say, it would ruin the dark ambient mood of the game. I've even replaced all of the stock cool white bulbs in the GI and inserts with Comet Sunlight to darken the mood and give it a bit more grit.

I did the Comet Sunlight change also. Looks totally sick.
Thanks for the opinion on the Pinstadiums and agree that it might ruin the ambience of the game. Just thinking about LMS and how important the light show is for just that.

Yeah I had mine on cycling through all colours.

LMS? Seriously you will probably never see LMS.

Price reduced on my Laseriffic TWD topper ($100). It's too tall for my new space and is sitting in the box!
