Quoted from monkeyboypaul:

Buy a new Met Prem from Pinball Heaven and I'll swap it for my No.321 TWD LE!
TWD is brilliant, but fancy a change.

I suspect you'll regret that move!

#4236 2 years ago

agreed, here is some LED on my ToM.

I prefer the LED, going for LED on TWD when Randy gets more stock.

anyone had random activations of the well walker? notably when the ball is in the pops?

Shows the LED colorDMD, but the video washes out the colours a lot and there is no flicker just another artefact of the video. It looks epic in my view!


#4496 2 years ago

i love the LED!

not sure what the issue is with the machine off!

Quoted from Pale_Purple:

Really hard to get a feel for it in that video, the dmd capture is very poor.
Any one else have a LED colorDMD in their game they could film?
Also is that video related to Domino records? Neon light looks the same...

Yes, its not great, and no i just knicked their logo

The LED is hard to film, you lose a lot of detail. Will see if I can use my canon 5D to film it. Have a look on my Youtube page, I have LED one in TWD and in my ToM. https://www.youtube.com/user/neilmcrae1

Pretty sure the horde light lit on my premium

I am special let me check my videos

#4933 2 years ago
Quoted from BillySastard:

Are these Cliffys even needed? I thought that the metal around the magnet core protected the playfield? Cliffs around that metal circle seems a bit overboard to me.

I had them on and took the prison one off as it puts air on the ball and the prison opto's won't register.

#4946 2 years ago
Quoted from rawbars:

I had them on and took the prison one off as it puts air on the ball and the prison opto's won't register.
I'm afraid I am gonna have to do the same. This game is too difficult to give away prison hits. Starting a multi ball can save your ass. And if that is delayed due to ball jumping over optos it sucks! What method did you use to remove it safely?

Fingernail - then sticky goo remover sparingly.

#4947 2 years ago
Quoted from rawbars:

The head registers fine. It can't be a really weak hit. But I'm ok with that. It's frustrating when the doors take a direct hit but the ball skipped above the opto because of the Cliffy and doesn't register. The harder the shot the more likely it is to skip. It happens way too often.

Yup that's what happens!

Also I prefer stock music and effects - they match the gameplay better than any of the other sound updates.

#4948 2 years ago
Quoted from waspinat0r:

Okay, so I thought I knew what hard pinball was. Then I got my TWD tonight. What the hell. My butthole actually was *NOT* ready.

Stick with it Wasp - when you get into the zone on TWD - nothing really compares to the pinball high you get. When horde starts throbbing it's insane!

Quoted from PiperPinball:

I have about 9 people interested. Another plus is getting the Thriller song into the game during well walker mulitball. And some MJ call outs when hit. (Example: Hehe, Oow!).

there is a guy with moonwalking dead in Boston who's done this... search.

Quoted from stoptap:

Isn’t it time you got a KISS (then sold it to me) ?

no no. I'd rather poke my eyes out! kiss is terrible!

#5504 2 years ago

new code is brilliant - got to horde on it tonight...

thank you Lyman and Stern.


#5528 2 years ago

Yes LE end code installed no problems - we have a pro at work and installed the pro code on that no problems.

#5529 2 years ago
Quoted from crwjumper:

The code for the Premium that I downloaded was named “TWD160LE_bin”. I had to rename the file to remove the underscore and replace it with a period so it was called “TWD160LE.bin”. It worked correctly after that.

I use a Mac and it didn’t have that hassle - downloaded the file for premium which has LE in the file name and then copied to stick and worked fine.

#5532 2 years ago

No stoptap..

#5552 2 years ago
Quoted from Pinzap:

Just installed Cleland 1.60 on my prem and played 1 game after to test. Put up a 498mil GC, my best score to date. Don’t think the new code had much to do with it, but I could be wrong. Had like 93mil in Riot and a 7x multiplied wellwalker multiball jackpot for 63mil. I’ll have to read again, but don’t think those were affected by the code update. In any case, still my favorite game and won’t be leaving anytime soon.

I think the scoring is more generous than before, not sure by how much but I seem to always have more walker kills than before.

#5567 1 year ago

play better!

#5569 1 year ago

was going to tomorrow night but been hit with manflu, if I feel better I'll do a stream!

#5630 1 year ago

Anyone getting and issue on the pro when you turn the machine on and the volume is set at the highest level?


#5632 1 year ago
Quoted from crwjumper:

If you just updated the code, it resets all of your settings and you'll have to adjust to your preferences again.

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.

download the pro software from sterns website - check the filename as a .BIN and NOT a underscoreBIN

copy it to the root / of your USB stick.

You don't need to do anything else...


#5816 1 year ago

Just make sure the file name is TWD160.BIN on the root file system of your memory stick.

Quoted from Jason_Jehosaphat:

*** Can't Hit Tunnel Shot to Save My Life! ***
I'm a novice player. I bought TWD because I'd read how fabulous it is and because I'd enjoyed playing a hundred-or-so sub-twenty-million-point games on one at my local barcade. Now that I own one (my first pin of any kind), I'm really struggling to be play it well enough to actually advance through the game.
In ascending order of difficulty, I rank the shots as follows:
6. CDC
5. Barn
4. Riot
3. Arena
2. Woodbury
1. Tunnel
Tunnel, as you all know, is a "Borg" shot. It has no margin for error, as even grazing/activating a pop on the way by deflects the shot. You can't "rattle" your shot through there. It has to sail through without touching a thing 'til it finds the corner at the very back/right of the PF, etc. I first experienced a shot of this kind on KISS, and I thought it was absurdly hard there, too.
I hit Tunnel by accident far more often than I do aiming for it. When I aim, I hit it perhaps once in twenty attempts. This is a problem. To help me avoid total frustration, I have set the game to settings that allow me to make at least *some* progress toward scoring goals. I still find it murderously hard. (Believe me, I don't advance all that far, despite all the gimmies!) I typically spend most of each ball trying to clear a single bank or drop targets to earn a shot at starting a mode. I rarely get to the mode as I more often just drain trying to clear the target bank. Clearing the target bank keeps you down near the deadly slings, and once the ball gets to ricocheting around between them, it will all too often find its way into the outlanes in a flash, etc. Still, on rare occasions, I have actually started Horde. (I count four times at this point.) Being resolutely unable to hit Tunnel, this a problem, as it's just a matter of time before I'm "bitten" by an advancing walker on the middle-right. Really, my skills are not up to Horde in general, but in particular because I can't hit Tunnel.
Oh, if you're thinking my pops have switch gaps that are ultra-tight, making them ultra-sensitive, I actually got in there already to *expand* those gaps to make the pops *less* sensitive, as all that pop-bumping on every plunge was driving me bananas.
Any suggestions?

man up soldier! - it will come and when it does you'll be ecstatic!

That TWD is sweet J85m where do you get it from?!


#6103 1 year ago
Quoted from TheRookie:

Just purchased my 1st NIB and its the walking dead PREM and i couldn't be more excited. it was between TWD and GOT and finally pulled the trigger on TWD this morning. Should be shipping out today and was wondering if most people play with the stock sound or with the other sound packages that are available? What did you guys do?

nothing beat stock. But try it and see for yourself!

#6104 1 year ago
Quoted from J85M:

Is there a list of mods for TWD anywhere?
Stern art blades are a must imo and I’m not usually a fan of lit speaker grills but the ones with Rick on the right and the zombie getting its brains blown out on the left are cool.
Who does the best crossbow?
Is there much other than those worth having?

ColorDMD, Speaker Lights. Topper and the blood armour. The latter two I'll get soon. A few of the signs that mezel do.


#6105 1 year ago

oh yes Bicycle girl light (gnassels) mod is a must have and slide blades. I went for the stern ones they are good quality and tie in with the artwork.

Quoted from Concretehardt:

Thought on color DMD for this game? is it a no brainer?

yup, I'm the only guy that seems to buy LED though. Nice and bright but not so good when streaming, camera doesn't pick it up so well.

Here is my stream of the new code just after the released it.

Unless its a very early game the holes will be there.

Quoted from JamesUK:

Silly question, but on Barn does each shot always count as a walker kill? I didn't think it did and as in the show and on the DMD each shot is supposed to be killing a walker coming out of the barn, you would think it would.

alternate with CDC

my magnet has also worked fine on both my Pre and the Pro I used to own. On the Pro I found it harder to level the game to avoid STDM from the pops.

make sure that the bottom pop is very sensitive and this is never an issue.
