New! Dark mode!

Anyone seen any air-balls? I just installed a 13 piece plastics protectors set fron Pinbits. Not easy, but, worth it.
Quoted from gweempose:
I installed the plastic protectors on mine. It wasn't too bad. The biggest pain in the ass was getting to all the stuff on the right under the ramps. I replaced all the rubbers with Titans at the same time, which allowed me to kill two birds with one stone.
Funny stuuff,I did the same. I agree about the right side. I have installed protector sets before,really help. Plastics are expensive & a pain to find. This is the first set I have seen with pops included.
Quoted from TheWombat2430:
From what I’ve read, shifting the weights on a Cointaker shaker won’t exactly do much. Should I go with electrical tape for best results or spend the extra few bucks and get anti rattle tape? Anybody done either of these if not both and had a comparison?
Great info.,thanks. I got the premium, never have read the manual. The manual is massive.
Quoted from CreepyTom:
Does a shaker motor have a lot of use in this game. Trying to figure out if buying one would be worth it.
I have a premium, the shaker in the settings can be set to to light,medium, and heavy use. If you do, I recommend the Stern shaker at Pinball Life. I have Cointaker and do not like it. It comes on when you hit an orbit shot during multi- ball. Also, during all the modes, if, you keep the ball in play.
Quoted from delt31:
so I'm about to join the club - this time premium. Giving TWD one more look as my pro experience wasn't the best but that was older code.
For premium owners, I'm hearing about a few must have mods to correct things such as the lift ramp. Can someone confirm what to ensure is on there or buy? Thanks!
For the lift ramp,a Cliffy is a must. The felt pads on the stock ramp dig quickly into the playfield. Color dmd and Cleland's adult version help a lot.
Quoted from gliebig:
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 added a 3/16" rubber to the post on the ramp entrance, raised up about a half inch. Helps a lot. I got a premium. I fit it over the post, tight, but works.
Quoted from Rensh:
Trying to convince myself to drop coin Into a colordmd for my twd pro.
But than which type? Led of lcd? The videos I found look to be all in high res eg lcd Display.
I have an acdc and met with smartdmd in highres mode but also a tspp with a pin2dmd which is a led display and these colors really pop. However, tspp is also cartoonesk so this fits led better I think.
Any opinions out there?
I got the lcd, it is the way to go. I had to go led on my Tommy. One huge negative on led, glare on the glass. Gotta go with shields.
Quoted from gliebig:
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.
I did the added flipper,also. On the ramp post I also added a ring rubber to the bottom of the post sleeve. Helps a lot, still happens, though.
Quoted from Oneangrymo:
I contacted the guy who sells the mod on Ebay. Turns out the wiring on the mod block is incorrect, and he will send me a new one. I kept wondering why this thing wasnt' working. Tried like 100 times. So if someone has this mod and it doesn't work, contact the seller!
I got this mod from Judge Dredd in UK. Works great. He is a good seller and creator of his mods. He will make it right.I got his stuff on a few of my games.
Quoted from JohnDeere:
Hey everyone I should be joining the club in a couple weeks with a premium and have been reading through all of the posts and mods listed. It looks like one of the big ones for the premium is the bicycle girl ramp but is there any consensus of which one is best to use? I see one from mezel mods as well as a couple from members but not sure of the difference. Thanks!
I like cliffys, fits great.
Quoted from Manic:
It *would* be nice to finally have something that would work on the Premium. This must be fan made though as in the show the zombies certainly aren't all bald. Kinda throws me a little looking at it.
But it's nice to have an alternative.
I got one for my premium at Ministry of Pinball, UK. The governor. Best part is it removes the glare from the glass. Check it out.
Quoted from Lermods:
What's impossible? Because you narrow the shot by a millimeter with a wider post sleeve the shot no longer can be made? The shot is wide enough that adding another millimeter makes no difference. It's not a tight shot to begin with. The ball hits the wider post as it rolls out of the pops just enough to cause it to fall to the left flipper with little impact on making the tunnel or arena shots.
I added the same post you did. I believe he was asking about the 100% statement. It helps, but, by no means stops them. There are still plenty of sdtm.
Quoted from Pinash:
I had an idea for a cheap "mod". I love the zombie/survivor shadows inside of the prison what can be seen when the flashers activate. I was thinking about making something similar for the roof of the prison. Maybe a "survivors inside" sign that's only seen when flashing?
Has anyone done this before?
Try EBay for the roof mod from Judge Dredd. I did, helps a lot, cheap, shows when flashers go off. I did not do the survivor mod, though.
Something to think about.
Quoted from pinballer247:
I'm wanting to install Cleland's "R" rated sound code and I'm curious if it changes any of the game settings and defaults back to factory when you download it??
Also where do you find the current version at? THX
If you look back in this post, there are many posts about this. I have the R rated code highly recommend it, certainly not at a household with children. Hard to beat hearing Negan, Merle, Dwight,Rick, & many others during gameplay. As for factory settings, I don’t think so. Research the postings for Cleland’s in this thread.
Quoted from pinballer247:
Thanks! I found a few different posts about the code. I'm definitely going to install it...the stock cheesy callouts got old real quick!
Just to give an example . At the end of a game I just finished,Negan "this is the kind of thing that just tickles my balls" . That stuff is all in the game by all the characters.
Cliffy's bicycle girl protector is needed against wear under the flap. It also adds a little lift for the ball. Easy to make on mine, gotta have good flippers,though.
Quoted from stoptap:
The subtle differences between the Pro and Premium/Le are very interesting on TWD. I find the Riot shot easier on the Premium. Is it more open due to the different ramps or am I imagining it ?
My favourite shot is Woodbury. Very satisfying to hit but terrifying when Horde is lit.
Riot is easy to hit. Love the Woodbury shot, too. CPU controlled lighting takes a little getting used to.
Mine did that, too. I put a flipper rubber around the well walker and it stopped. Improves playing, also.
