Quoted from Rum-Z:

Isn't it 115 on default settings? I think you were right there.

Yeah, I think default is 115, which is why i said that. I set mine down to the lowest allowed, which is still something crazy high like 90.

The best I've ever done is 97. I was trying for 115 at that point, but was on my last ball, and nope... I didn't make it. I've been tempted to lower the number on my TWD too.

#9555 1 year ago

was looking at the manual for the Prem/le and noticed under GI's that the playfield has 3 x green leds basically behind the drop targets.

Has anyone replaced the reds with green and if so, were you happy with it? I don't have any greens to try but am wondering if it would give a cool effect or stern decided it was too much away from the red red look

Yes my family are a bit concerned, especially as I took my wife’s hairbrush and took some hair off which I covered in blood (paint) and stuck it on the bat!!!

#9561 1 year ago

I've been through the online manuals to no avail. Can anyone tell me which of the Blue Nubs of Death one needs to buy for next to the Woodbury shot? Mine was completely missing and there are several options out there. Thanks.

#9562 1 year ago

Mine appears to be 2cm long or 4/5 inch. Same height and width as the bracket.

Edit. I have a pro though. Not sure if Le is different.

Any one by chance looking to off-load their Fish Tank Topper? I realize it's a long shot, but thanks in advance for the consideration!!

"THE CRATE"

Just finished a mod for TWD.
Pictures and video below.
Slides onto the hump section of the left ramp and is triggered by the pinball rolling underneath.
Easy install.
Zombie inside will raise the lid and try and break the chains.
Its pretty fast so you only get a glmpse of him
He's painted and has reflective opaque eyes...
His hand grasping through the hole of the lid.
Has a hook on the playfield side for added movement.
Chains all round crate.
Has a clear ball activated lever underneath so modders can light from under the clear ramp.
Detailed by hand. All painting and decals done myself.
Each one will be slightly different.
Limited numbers being made so contact me to be placed on a list should you want one.
Being made bespoke for each person.

PM me for contact details.

Anyone run into issues with prison optos and drop targets? A couple of weeks ago the prison would constantly register hits after the ball was plunged. I checked the connections, cleaned the optos and the problem went away. Just last night game started acting up again. Now after a plunge the drop target bank fires three times in succession, and continues to do so almost constantly while a ball is in play, it doesn't do it when the ball is in the shooter lane, and now the prison opto is not registering at all. Haven't had a chance to get under the hood yet, just seeing if anyone ever had a similar problem.

Try pushing all connectors home under the playfield. Theres a lot of Z connector connections that also come loose.

You didn’t mention this but it will also stop airballs from happening at this spot. Very nice, if I didn’t already have the burning barn mod I would hit you up for one. Could you also fit a red led inside?

Yep stops the airballs from happening.
I originally designed a clear plastic but then it sort of branched into this design.
I've made a clear lever system underneath so you could plant an led just below the clear ramp.

Could everyone PM me if you want the mod etc .

Are you able to manually activate the crate and take a photo so people can see what's under the lid.

Sorry only issue I know is when the magnet is proud of the surface and causes air balls to skip over the optos. Never had or heard of this. Good luck!

I hope to improve the painting of the zombie
The main thing was the shake and rattle of the chains and the lifting of the lid.
I added him just for fun as the movement is pretty quick

Thanks . It looks better in blender The print loses a lot of detail .
Plus he's stumpy as there not a lot of room for the lever action.

#9580 1 year ago

You won't need too much detail as the lid raise is pretty quick. I reckon it's pretty good as is, but there's no harm in improving stuff

I'm going to add a servo and maybe some lighting to the crate so started a new thread for updates etc.

#9582 12 months ago

cool idea!. I like that it is all mechanical , it seems like it would be better if zombie stayed up a little longer, without getting into servos maybe you can have the lever activate and catch on a little ledge (ala drop target) and keep the zombie up until the next ramp shot where he drops back in to the box ? just an idea..

Im quite liking the servo version. I can add some random behaviour to it.
Posting a vid on my thread of a test i have done.

Or some gearing that makes it close slowly.....

I just joined the club and picked up TWD Pro with shaker and topper. I’m enjoying this game but I have a few issues I’m hoping I can get help with. I have a couple of Spike games and I typical set the volume at around 22. On TWD, I have to set the volume at close to 40 to be as loud. This game is really quiet! This is my first SAM game so I’m not sure if this is normal?
The second issue I have is the coin lamps are out and I cannot find in the manual where these trace back to? Not the back box I assume? Somewhere in the cabinet? Also, my flasher at the “pop bumbers” is not working. I’m going to have to trouble shoot this one further I guess.
Thanks!

Quoted from Torre:

Stern stopped including full schematics in their online manuals around 2014 so it’s more difficult to get help because not everyone has that info at their fingertips.

You can check the paper manual, see if that has full schematics. If it doesn’t, an email to Stern may produce results.

Volume = 40 on mine not too loud, I could go louder if I wanted. So you’re normal.

#9589 12 months ago

Thanks for the replies. So volume is good.
I'm just going to follow the wires for the lamps and see where they go.

#9590 12 months ago

Fixed both issues.
The flasher works now that I re-seated all the connections between the board, topper and flashers so something must have been mis-aligned or loose.
The lamps at the coin door was even easier. Looks like the previous owner just disconnected the plug-in in the back of the cabinet. In my defense it's not easy to see or access back there because of the ridiculous way the playfield slides out (or doesn't slide out) of the cabinet. I think I'm going to invest in the rail slides for this game.
Thanks again.

Hey survivors!
I have edited and uploaded the pingolf challenge i had recently to my youtube channel. Divided into three parts, one for each game, here is the first with Walking Dead (hole 1 - 6) if anyone want to see

Joining with a premium. Installed a pin2dmd and some mods coming for fun.. this is a pin I see where a good amount of mods available all look pretty cool.

Curious about those that have installed upgraded speakers — do they make a big difference? I could go for a bit more bass over stock, but not sure if upgrading is worth it..

I put the 8” flipper fidelity set in and big difference on the bass front and a small difference from bb speakers, just a bit clearer/crisper.

How have you found the Pin2DMD. I have thought about installing one on my TWD pro although have had no luck finding a colourisation rom file.

Go with an external sub. That'll round out the sound pretty well (afterall, its really only missing the low end), and it'll be cheaper if you can find a used one. I've gotten many Polk PSW10's for $50 on CL or FB Marketplace. Also check out the Cleland sound package if yours came with stock code.

The volume differences between systems is normal. I have a Sam and Spike as well and they both behave just as you have mentioned. The Spike on lower volume is much louder.

#9597 11 months ago

I joined the club a few weeks ago with a Premium, and I've been too busy having my ass handed to me to post!

I love this game! Never nad much chance to play it before, so I never knew what I was doing when I could play it. And I never owned a game where knowing what you are doing mattered so much! (e.g. those left drops are key!)

The "just one more game" phenomenon is stronger than any game I've owned. Chances are it'll be short, so why not?

But when you do get on a roll, the thrill is unparalleled in my experience!

Those damn ramps! A slow ball can make it all the way to the backboard and still not go around, instead slo-mo rejecting seconds after the shot was made! Deliciously aggravating!

The ball keeps getting stuck in or behind the well walker. Gotta look for fixes.

Finally figured out that skill shot. Still gotta fine tune the shot strength and timing though, I almost think I was getting more points with a full plunge because I keep short plunging now and missing it entirely! Another brilliantly aggravating feature.

Shout out to the Cleland R sound package creator. Love it! It really tickles my, uh, er, what Negan said.

Occasionally my crossbow won't operate, then when it's too late it realizes the ball is in there and it fires it randomly. That's an aggravation that I don't think is a design feature! Is that long leaf switch hanging up, you think?

Ok, back to killing Walkers!

#9598 11 months ago

Congrats....I revisited mine tonight and it promptly reminded me who is boss....what a bad ass game!!!

I have a premium myself that I picked up a little over a year ago. Great Game! If you want to upgrade speakers I would go through PinWoofer. His system works off a separate amp and won’t stress your audio board out and will be much louder for both channels.
I recently had a problem with my lower cabinet speaker which one of the two previous owners upgraded to flipper fidelity speaker. All of a sudden I had a Bad humming coming out of and no sound coming out of it which is where most of the sound comes from I learned after my failure because before I fixed it I had that speaker unplugged. In short, with PinWoofers help, identified the audio chip on the board was bad. I felt there was a chance that the flipper fidelity speaker if it is going to make it louder had to stress that board out so I put the factory speaker back in, and for me I didn’t think it made that much difference between the two speakers. Now I could have just got unlucky with my audio board or it may have been the flipper fidelity speaker but at least with PinWoofer systems his is completely separate from the board. I got lucky and was able to solder in that chip, even two local shops near me said they send the board in to get rebuilt ( I have no idea if I was contacting a quality tech) but if I was to buy that board it would have been $550.

Yeah my Spike 2 game I have set to 15 but the SAM system in these I set to 30 so totally normal with the comparison
