Quoted from RVApinballer:

Do you guys mind posting a few pics of your TWDs?? I love seeing pics of games in the home setting next to other pins.

I took delivery of my PBR TWD Premium one week ago. Below are some photos of my new TWD in my game room.

I am still getting used to the game and the rule set so any pointers on game play are certainly welcome.

Quoted from bemmett:

Tip #1 is TWD looks horrible sitting next to that BSD, best just sell that BSD to me to clear up that room a little bit!

I will keep that in mind should Drac ever want to leave the building.

Quoted from jkashani:

Anyone have an invisiglass installed on their TWD? Mine seems to have allot of glare and I wonder if the glass helps.

I have PDI Non-Glare glass installed on my Pinball Refinery Edition of TWD Premium. Below are some photos of the playfield taken with the PDI NG glass on the game.

Quoted from ATLpb:

I've been waiting 8 mos.

As soon as you see that the prison tower mod is available you need to order right away. The last group of prison tower mods sold out in less than 1 day so it seems to be in pretty high demand.

Quoted from PinManV:

OK. Halloween-Pinball party Saturday night. What version of code should I run and where can I download it?

Hey Vince,

Try the following URL for the 1.56 (latest) version of the CLELAND code. I have had this on my TWD Premium for 7 months or so and I really like it.

Quoted from NeilMcRae:

yeah - I get that I've done that. But when the machine is powered up, it sets the volume super high, all other settings are fine.
Neil.

After updating the code on my TWD premium to version 1.60 my overall volume was set really high (38 on the front service panel) and was unbearably loud even for my deaf ears. I lowered the volume (using front service panel buttons) to a more tolerable level (18 or so) and the game retained the new settings without any issues even after rebooting.

Quoted from lb1:

Just got a Premium and the first thing I did was to touch up and Mylar the chip in the shirt. We’ll see how this holds.
Matching the color was easy. Green / Red / White.

Another option to fix the pants on the well walker is the following.

Quoted from DavidPinballWizz:

Terminus tip of the day.
Warning a bit of a spoiler..
Terminus is started as the 6th mode by completing the drops again and making any shot to start the mode.
It consists of 5 times a hurryup value that counts down every time and can be made on every shot.
Once a shot is made, the value resets and starts counting down again. An already made shot cannot be used again.
1st hurryup value: 20% of the 5th mode
2nd hurryup value: 20% of the 4th mode + 20% of the 5th mode
3rd hurryup value: 20% of the 3rd mode + 20% of the 4th mode + 20% of the 5th mode
4th hurryup value: 20% of the 4th mode + 20% of the 3rd mode + 20% of the 4th mode + 20% of the 5th mode
5th hurryup value: 20% of the 5th mode + 20% of the 4th mode + 20% of the 3rd mode + 20% of the 4th mode + 20% of the 5th mode
So play your 5th mode big! As it counts in every hurry up value.
Actually during the 5th mode, every other shot adds value to the current mode value as all the shots from modes already played give/add you a 'past mode' value.
My strategy
I mostly light double playfield at the tower jackpot before I start.
Shoot CDC to start Terminus and directly I make the first hurry up in the riot shot so I get my double playfield going.
I then concentrate on the other shots but I try to get tunnel before the others.
On my last but one shot I go for a ramp so I can use my X multiplier to use on my very last hurry up and cash in big.
My x champ is currently at 350M+, and a terminus total of 600M+
TWD is such a good game . Noticed is it in the archives now at the Stern games page.

Dang, I need to spend some serious time on my TWD premium playing it using your tips. I pretty much just shoot at whatever is flashing and try to keep the ball alive.

Thanks for documenting this as I now have an actual strategy to try out.

Quoted from Damien:

Picked up a pro today... Does the very noticeable wood grain seem normal?

I haven't noticed any visible wood grain on my TWD Premium playfield. I don't see any wood grain in person or in the photo that is shown below of my TWD playfield.

Quoted from CreepyTom:

Help, i’m trying to find the cleland code and instructions to put it in walking dead 1.60. Just got my premium from Cointaker in March and can’t stop playing it.

1. Download Cleland's BIN file here:

https://pinside.com/pinball/forum/topic/the-walking-dead-code-update-160/page/4#post-4107914

2. Place the BIN file on a freshly formatted thumbdrive - basically exactly what you would do for a ColorDMD ROM file upgrade.

3. Turn game off, move dip switch 8 to the left, turn game on and follow the instructions.

No need to turn the game off. Set dip switch 8 to left, hit the enter diagnostic button, the screen tells you to plug in the USB stick, do so. Then hit enter to update. - LTG : )™

4. Wait a good 20 minutes for the game to erase the current memory and install the new BIN file. Follow the prompts on the screen to return the game to normal mode once the code update is complete.

Quoted from Riffbear:

When I extracted the file I got two .bin files... Which one do I use?
TWD160LE_CLELAND_R.BIN.cpgz 78.4 MB
And this...
TWD160LE_CLELAND_R.BIN 97 MB
I'd also like to have the R rated feature on.
Cheers.

When you download the BIN file to your hard drive (there is only one file as shown by the photo below) you need to copy that one BIN file to a USB drive. I am not sure why you are trying to extract the BIN file.

I just successfully downloaded the R rated BIN file to my hard drive and copied it to a USB drive without any problems as a test.

Quoted from msj2222:

Can anyone help me with the fish tank topper. I've had the pin for awhile and am just getting around to installing the topper. I have the unboxing directions but not the wiring. Says sheet 77-7517-00 for wiring instructions. I have seen the video and it seems I am missing the blue and white part of the harness. if someone has a part # for the connectors or schematic or even a close up picture. Thanks

You may find the following PDF helpful in your wiring task for TWD topper.

Quoted from Monk:

I just picked up a TWD Pro yesterday. Game is great so far, but I think it's already time to change the call outs to cleland version. Can someone please let me know how I can get his version and how the entire process works. Is it no different than doing a typical stern update, but with his code?
Edit: I think I've found the code. My only question now is, do you do the update like any other stern code update, but with clelands code? I would assume yes.

1. Download Cleland's BIN file here:

https://pinside.com/pinball/forum/topic/the-walking-dead-code-update-160/page/4#post-4107914

2. Place the BIN file on a freshly formatted thumbdrive.

3. Set dip switch 8 to left, hit the enter diagnostic button, the screen tells you to plug in the USB stick, do so. Then hit enter to update.

Quoted from manadams:

May be picking up a TWD with the fish tank topper and may sell to offset the cost of the game. Anyone sell one lately and know what they're going for?

Don't sell the topper as you will likely regret it down the road. I paid $400 for my NIB TWD topper about 3 years ago when they were still available. I seem to recall seeing one in like new condition sell for $450 or so a few months ago.
