I think the one I was looking at has the other code/callouts. What is a fair price for a prem Dead?
New to the club. Is there a rule list somewhere that explains the modes? I've watched a few vids but would like to read them.
Been trying to make the tunnel shot with the crossbow. Haven't been successful yet.
Watching the Bowen tutorial. He keeps saying about using his "X". What exactly does that mean?
Thanks. I wouldn't have figured that out. Most of the time I just aim for flashing shit. I don't know how you guys remember all the details.
Been watching vids to learn some strategy. Still not clear about modes. What to do after you start one and how to finish it.
Quoted from chuckwurt:
Read this while watching videos:
So if I'm playing cdc mode, I won't get awarded the points unless i hit the correct shots to finish the mode.? Like hitting the scoop to collect a CIU on Metallica?
This game kicks my ass. Makes TNA feel like a marathon.
I still don't know exactly what I'm doing. I get the drop targets to start a mode, but when I select a mode, is it mostly just trying to hit that same shot repeatedly? Also not clear on what I should focus on in Well Walker mb and Bloodbath. I seem to get Bloodbath frequently but not sure what the objectives are.
I've read the rule sheet, but still leaves me with a lot of questions.
Quoted from DaveH:
I’m officially a temporary resident of this club! I’ve been looking around for a Pro for a while, but then made a temporary swap of games with a friend for this bad boy. It’s completely kicking my ass so far.
Mine kicks my ass so badly that I will go play BSD for a relaxing game.
The brutal row.
Every push of a start button comes with a complementary nut punch.
As usual, I'm bored and looking at some mods for my TWD. Anyone add those blood splatter decals? Just wondering if it looks good or too much? Any pics?
I haven't had my game that long. Was playing a "quickie" Saturday before I had to head out. Of course, I lite Horde for the first time ever. Was running late and was so excited...I forgot how to start it. Wound up draining. F*$# me. Don't know when I'll get there again. Oh well, will give me motivation to play.
Quoted from DNO:
If you have played any other modes (barn, I prefer), then before you start shooting the ramp to build and light the jackpots, you can shoot the lit shots (barn,riot,etc, whatever mode you previously played) to add 500k to the base value, it's basically like shooting 10,20? ramps, as the ramp shot only builds 25k per shot, I think.
That's how I've gotten huge CDC totals.
This also works with all the other modes too, adding value to them.
If only I could keep the ball in play long enough to take advantage of that...
Quoted from Guinnesstime:
It's still a tough pin, but get these. You'll be very thankful you did.
Have them. lol.
They've definitely helped a bit. Maybe I need to put bigger rubber on them. hahaha.
My magnet is fair but the drain from the pops Kill me. Has anyone done anything around the pop area to help with this? I nudge, slap, kick...helps but I constantly fight it.
I've gotten to Horde a few times, but I swear this game sucks balls for being intuitive on the rules. I still don't know how I collected all the weapons.
I'm trying to "get" this game. It just doesn't click with me. I can walk up to any other game that I own and everything is very clear what to do. I don't get why everyone loves this code.
Is it because mine has the Cleland code with absolutely ZERO helpful callouts? Does the standard code have helpful callouts?
Quoted from Lermods:
It’s a tough game to figure out, but once you do the magic shines. Took me a long time, watching some videos really helped. Main thing to get going is knock down the drop targets and get modes started. I find acdc actually much harder to figure out what’s going on.
I've read the rules/watched videos a few times. I don't know. I think I get CDC mode, but have yet to really score big on it. The other modes, I still don't know. Do I just keep hitting the same shot over and over?
Same with WW multiball..do you aim for pops/spinners? I don't know.
Blood Bath...I never remember what to do there either.
I also put a flipper rubber by the right ramp to stop pop drains. MF'r still goes down the middle repeatedly.
Funny thing is, I get the CDC mode. Why does it seem like there is so much to that mode, but others are just hit the same shot repeatedly? I guess that's why I don't see the hype about the code.
I added a flipper rubber to the right ramp area to try and cope with drains from the pops. It has helped a little but still extremely frustrating. Not sure what to try next.
Quoted from Rensh:
Try leveling or on purpose slightly not level it. 100% drain free will never happen though, at least not on mine.
I was thinking that. What would be best....tilt to the right so it bounces off the ramp rubber more, or tilt left towards the pop side to hit the left flipper?
I admit I don't really know when to use them. For some reason, this is the only game I own that the code just hasn't clicked with me.
Quoted from DavidPinballWizz:
I tried it and went back to original too... so you're not alone
Mine came with the Cleland code so I've never played it with stern callouts. I've never seen an episode of TWD so it probably doesn't matter how the stern one sounds...but
...i would like more helpful callouts. Do you get a lot more of them with stern?
Ok. If I switch to Sterns most recent code, should I later want to switch back to Cleland...where do I find that? Since my game came with Cleland, I don't know where it came from.
Quoted from Mudflaps:
Here’s some screenshots of stuff I found to be useful. Lyman’s code is incredible, but not necessarily intuitive. There’s a lot to learn, but very rewarding once you figure it out.[quoted image][quoted image][quoted image][quoted image]
Wish I could get a game to last long enough to see this stuff.
Quoted from Rager170:
I had that problem when I first got the game. What started opening up the game for me was to try and shoot the drop targets first. That gets you the first game mode.. I like to keep shooting those drops over and over to try and get bloodbath..
I get bloodbath regularly. I'm not sure what to do when I get it.
