Whats the best LED kit for TWD?
Quoted from DavidPinballWizz:
I actually like the pro default bright leds.
Though bouth some double leds in red from cointaker. And will add these perhaps in the empty holes found in the playfield. But will wait till I find a premium or le to take some detailed pics.
Just installed the fishtank mod yesterday on my pro (not the topper). Looks really great.
Did the mini aquarium myself and it looks sweet. Was really tight with my custom tower in there
Check to see if plunger is striking ball directly in middle if not lift play field and loosen four screws that hold the entire plunge assembly position it to be center on ball strike. Did you switch your dip switch setting on number #8 for download?
First MOD you need to do is the VOICE call out mod. Format your USB again and load that sucker up. Having the character voices in there makes it a completely different game and playing is much more enjoyable. And do not forget to switch the two plastics behind the well walker so he goes back all the way from direct strikes, this will also prevent your top plastic from breaking in the future. Stern may have already fixed this on newer TWD pins but if you a NOV or earlier model they did not. See pic for reference. The smaller plastic needs to be on top. The assembly line folks assembled them incorrectly
Quoted from freddy:
i did this and have had one ball stuck between well walkers back and plastic in the middle of a good game.
Freddy, Can you simulate that stuck position, that sounds like a freak ball stuck, I have never heard that one.
Quoted from hyruleinaustin:
Switched the plastics. Thank you.
The plunger is hitting a good 1/8 of an inch to the right of the center of the ball. Not exactly sure how to fix something that is that far off. I don't want to do anything "dramatic."
The rectangle assembly that is the plunger is held in by four screws in the inside if you loosen them the assembly moves around. Just put a ball in the lane, loosen four screws and position the assembly till plunger is center on ball then tighten screws. To easy and you do not even need to lift play field all the way up
Quoted from DavidPinballWizz:
I'm curious now for what's the correct position of those plastics.
All pro, LE and even premium stern official pictures show this in the setup, smallest is below, largest is on top.
Changing it gives indead more room for the well walker to move (especially on direc thits) and most likely triggering the base assy switch better. But if that plastic was intended to limit it's movement,...
any official input from Stern on this? People who received them nib and those plastics were installed with smallest on top?
The well walker strikes the large plastic with direct hits (if it is on top). I am betting soon after peoples warranties start expiring those suckers are going to start breaking. In any case the well walker barely moves back because of it, the play is much more enjoyable when they are switched as the well walker has better activity in movement
Quoted from RobT:
I can confirm this has been fixed on my Premium (my well walker works perfectly, and goes all the way back):
Take another look it should look like this as pictured. Smaller plastic on top for full well walker motion. trust me you WILL be able to notice the difference
Quoted from QuarterGrabber:
have you seen one of those toppers in person? I saw one at a fellow pinsiders home and was very underwhelmed. It was tiny, and I mean tiny. I am glad I didn't buy one. $400 it too much for that IMO. It should be more around the $199 price point.
thats why I did my own topper and added a a button where the plug is for a animated topper for $50 bucks
Quoted from John1210:
Not disputing that it may improve the ww response to hits as far as how much he goes back but plastics are installed correctly from factory. That being smaller plastic, which if examined you can see it perfectly is cut to sit next to the pop, on the bottom. And the larger one on top which is not cut to sit snugly next to the pop. I'm leaving mine factory but may change later to check it out.
Maybe they changed it to smaller on bottom, but their release pin had the smaller one on top, in any case it is still more enjoyable when they are switched, not all but most TWD owners do this for a better a game
Quoted from busa32927:
joined the club over the weekend. love the game. i see some people have racked up over a billion points on it. any ideas about the best mods to get for it?
start with voice mod its free and changes game to a more enjoyable experience, then save up, because modding this one is gonna run about the price of another used pin
Quoted from ezeltmann:
First video was sneak peak and was taken long ago <when the seas ran red with blood> .. nice necronomicon
Check out this pizza
AH CRAP! Guess I am throwing out the pizza I just ordered, wouldn't want my sole to get swallowed.
