That long multi ball is awesome, think it was due to getting blood bath

#552 5 years ago

Oh yeah baby super long multi balls then a big drain....

#553 5 years ago

Twss!

#554 5 years ago
Quoted from coasterguy:

I think I had that going yesterday too. All I know is my multi ball went on for so long I almost thought something was wrong with the game? It was intense and long winded.

Does it say something like "SEIGE!!!!" when it begins? I thought I heard something like that the other day while I had a long prison mb going, but I didn't see the insert lit up or anything, so I figured probably not.

#555 5 years ago

I think it did actually.

#556 5 years ago

I have hard time paying attention during play!

Same here. I pretty much never look at the DMD when I play.

Quoted from 30FathomDave:

You gotta stand back and watch the DMD while someone else plays (preferably someone good). The animations are an absolute delight. They are truly the best I have ever seen on a game.

#559 5 years ago
Quoted from 30FathomDave:

Save for the occasional pop drain, I don't experience any of those issues at home, so I can totally see why someone who has only played TWD on location (or at least played the machine that I played) would think this game's a turd.

Hit nail on head. Played enough pro on location to see how some wouldn't be able to get to second base with this pin.

Got it all modded up and I don't see how TWD LE won't be my most played pin for a long time to come and will find its resting place in my lineup of Stern All Stars!

The long multi ball comes, for me, from getting Prison MB first, the Well Walker and you have to stack Blood Bath and/or Knife MB with either of those to get the "add a balls" going crazy!

The sound effects and the rush of all those stacked MB's is the best experience on a pinball machine for me, any and all I have or have played.

Btw, if you guys don't have that prison EL wire mod, its awesome.

#560 5 years ago

And the Over the top back box kit from PBR is "over the top" great!

I have the Pro and this game has to be kept level or it can zap the fun right out of it.
We are really enjoying ours it is a changing game that keeps us coming back for more.

Blood Bath and/or Knife MB

What is Knife multiball? I've never seen that before.

It does and not in the hillbilly voice, at least it didn't sound like him more of a low deep voice. Its insane, coolest mode I've encountered yet on TWD, only more to come. After seeing that the possibilities of future modes and upgrades to current ones should be amazing.

#564 5 years ago
Quoted from Hazoff:

It's hard to recognize when you are in the frenzy of it all because it comes up on the DMD for a short time frame and isn't really announced otherwise like prison, blood bath or well walker mb.

If you have hit the add a ball frenzy, from what I can tell, knife and/or blood bath is giving you the long, very long, MB's, its def not prison although you need to get through that one twice to get into the big scoring range.

#565 5 years ago

Siege should be 2 completions of Prison and Super Collected (twice) during Prison Multiball. Not sure if you have to do it all in one Multiball.

As far as i know , there is no such thing as knife multiball. Doesn't mean it doesn't exist , i just would be very surprised if i didn't notice it. Blood Bath has 2 add a balls , so maybe a knife Multikill and hitting the add-a-ball might have triggered an event that made it look like a Knife Multiball.

#566 5 years ago

Man does this game ever need and also very deserving of a color DMD upgrade. I hope once code is done the firmware follows for this pin and I can see the animation in color.

#567 5 years ago
Quoted from gweempose:

Agreed. I always watch the animations when others play, but when it's just me playing, I never look.

and/or Knife MB with .

How do you get Knife MB started? I don't think anyone's added that to the community rule sheet - Checking now. https://docs.google.com/document/d/1aOmSE1l5xGgxbyH0AbRypnnkzIF3GU9bseulZbJc8wM/edit

Don't see it in there. Could you add it in?

Is it just me or does this walker look like Mr. Borg?

#570 5 years ago

Who's about to get jacked up with that tire iron? I wonder if John asked them to do that, or are we just reading too much into it ?

#571 5 years ago

Haven't played much this week but, I am now. The game is intense. Like the fire at the circus!

#572 5 years ago

Holy crap! That walker does look like Borg. It even has the same hairstyle.

Does that zombie have a BMX t-shirt on? lol

It was the hair that was the giveaway! Cool Easter egg.

I just installed the bicycle girl ramp fix from Stern. Thanks Gio at Pinball Refinery for the service. The ramp is much smoother and no air balls.

When did your ramp fix arrive? What did they include in it?

I'm gonna verify it and pay close attention to how I got it, if that's possible, before I add to rule sheet.

Unless I was seeing things it just slipped in via DMD animation. I happened to be looking up, like i said I've noticed it a couple of times.

Can anybody else recall seeing it? Maybe I'm going nuts, so much going on during the frenzy, maybe its Knife multi kills during MB that does the add a ball.

Would love to know, as well

Quoted from Jdfitzy-in-Aus:

Mine arrived early last week. Includes 4 small foam lads, a bigger bg ramp plastics for air balls, a piece of Mylar and instructions. I already fixed my ramp issues so not sure I'm going to need this. A little disappointing that the kit didn't include a smaller spacer for the right side of the ramp, but I was able to create my own with what I had on hand anyway. Here's a pic of the kit they sent:

#580 5 years ago

^^^^^ I was sceptical at first when it arrived. Like a couple sticky pads could make a dfference....well it did. The ramp is smooth as butter and no longer has issues with air balls or bouncing balls when shooting the crossbow.

Thanks for that, the fix I got a month ago only had 2 square foam pads, the larger plastic and no Mylar.

The instructions for the Mylar say to remove the damaged Mylar. Maybe later produced machines have it installed at the factory.

Yep. That's the same fix I received in the mail.

Here's an HD Video I shot tonight. I was able to score over 100 million & had several different modes going, check it out.

#585 5 years ago

Game is kicking my ass right now. I read about out lane drains and now its messing with my head!

Haven't gotten far enough today to get close to Knife.

Nice game! Great use of post passes early on to set yourself up for those Barn shots.

#590 5 years ago

Thank you! It's a hard, but fun pin for sure.

#591 5 years ago

Here's Video I shot the very next game. It's a close up of the DMD the entire time. I wanted to video as many DMD scenes as I could. I ended up setting a new GC score of 135 Million! lol

How do I get this kit, from my distributor? I send Gex a message but no response so far. Do I need to request it or will they just be sending them out?

I got mine from Stern directly. They sent it. I had emailed stern and my distro, so either could have gotten it going.

I'm still playing the living shit out of this game. BG ramp feels much better with stern kit added on.

This PF design is right up there with Tron! Lyman ruleset and Borg eccentrically made shots= awesome. Just awesome.

My disto just emailed me to say that my kit is being sent today.

I completely agree with Underlord - this is an addicting game with a familiar Borg feel. Fast, in your face, intense but most importantly fun. Lyman and his team have already done a great job with the dots, stacking, rules, and music. I was worried about the callouts, but I love them too. They don't feel jarring or out of place. They feel a bit more serious than earlier code. And there are some great quotes later as you get into the game and modes. The one voice that I'd love to hear more is the guy with the really deep voice that sometimes says something before the first ball plunge.

Love it so far, and am super excited for the next Lyman update.

#596 5 years ago

I wonder when some new code will drop.

#597 5 years ago

I just heard a awesome call out during riot mode.

"Holy shit this is fucking fun"

Maybe in later updates they will add some more like this and take out the bad jokes.

Nice game. I'm in the same category. Most of my games are in the 20-30 million range. 75-80 million is a good game and over 100 is fantastic.

I know, I don't think I understand all the multiplying rules. Some of the scores people post on here are crazy
