Quoted from vireland:

If you're doing that, you're missing most of the points. The lit skill shot is the worst point option available at ball launch. Go for one of many super secret skill shots to get up to 20 million instead of 1 million.

Is there a list of super skill shots?

Quoted from billsfanmd:

I started a thread with the super secret skill shots (there's only one super skill shot).

Here's the link:

Quoted from djreddog:

Confirmed there is at least one more.

Do you have a source for that info? I really hope it is going to happen and they fix the few remaining issues.
I'm going to test play one in two weeks and if I knew an update was definitely coming it would make my decision easier.

Yes. Confirmed directly with Keith.

Awesome thanks for that

Can anyone give me an opinion if you’ve upgraded from a pro to a premium how you like the extra features what was the main reason or vice versa?

We had a pro for about 6 months then upgraded to a Premium on the route I help with. I like the Premium more, but it plays quit a bit differently with the emphasis on the left ramp instead of bashing the mummy ball and the center ramp to start modes instead of hitting the bullseye target. If you're quick, you can get a near perfect hurryup on Rime with the Premium by returning the ball right back to the spot under the ramp. You can't do that with the Pro. I also like that you can hit the orb from many angles because it's a ball and not a target pointing one direction like on the pro. Hate the translite with eddie as a drum major, but what are you gonna do?

You could trade it for my pro translite.

Vireland, any idea when Stern implemented the latest Premium fixes at that factory as far as build dates are concerned?

Thanks

Like to know this as well.

Unfortunately, I do not know. However, as far as I know the ball trap on the Premium to the left of the main ramp that can really jam a ball hard has not been addressed. I made my own.

Quoted from finnflash:

Unfortunately, unlike Deadpool, Maiden translite swaps don't work because the theming of the cabinets are radically different.

#4963 4 months ago

I can hit the target skill shot 80% and the others less than 50%, so I don't bother with the others. The pretty consistent extra ball save, letter and points are better value to me. I just hate the right drain rebound.

#4964 4 months ago

I'm also wondering about the newton ball if the updated mech can be supplied to dealers for fitting on earlier build machines.

Another option is the custom mummy one. It looks pretty good. Was for sale on eBay and suits the premium cab.

I think the pro with a premium translight looks good, but I can imagine the premium with pro would not since it is all Egyptian themed.

Since the back of the playfield is Egyptian, I think it would look very good. You cant see the sides of mine anyway

#4968 4 months ago

Hell I wish I could get one with a premium playfield in a pro cabinet...

#4969 4 months ago

I absolutely hate the pro translite and replaced it with premium. I think it looks perfectly fine. Cab and translite share the same color palette while the back of the pf and side blades literally lifts the same art

#4970 4 months ago

It looks much better then I thought it would. Even with the side cab art. Now I need to get one.

Where do you buy a premium translite

#4973 4 months ago

how are the modes selected (or pre-selected)? It seems random but I don't know if they are changes by hitting something. Also where is the extra ball collect shot?

#4974 4 months ago
Quoted from billsfanmd:

directly from stern - was 107 shipped? I hear you can custom order from pinball life as well although I already bought mine.

Lower left spinner below the pop bumpers moves the lit mode. The one that lights REVIVE that you should learn to shoot for first until REVIVE is lit.

Extra ball too?

#4977 4 months ago

Extra ball is awarded at the stand up target for the standard skill shot.

I went with it and like it.

Does anyone have a link to alternative Iron Maiden song roms for the game? I’m looking to change up the soundtrack a little.

Quoted from CreepyTom:

Buy a couple of class 10 SD's, I got mine a Walmart for 9 bucks each.

https://www.walmart.com/ip/SanDisk-32-GB-Ultra-PLUS-Class-10-UHS-1-SDHC-Memory-Card/52198325

The using pinballbrowser you can change out the songs.

https://pinside.com/pinball/forum/topic/acdc-display-and-modify-dot-matrix-images/page/64

Install https://hddguru.com/software/HDD-Raw-Copy-Tool/

This will let you copy the original stern SD card into an uncompressed format that pinballbrowser can edit. Do NOT overwrite your original..keep that for backup.

Then source your music (legit??)

https://freelistenonline.com/artist/Metallica

Import the songs using pinballbrowser and then write the updated .img file to a new sd using HDD Raw Copy Tool.

During import I needed to adjust the volume to 140% on the songs downloaded from freelistenonline to get them to match the volume of the rest of the songs.

For the longer songs, it might take piecing together two or three other songs to fill the space. I used audacity for this. Open the first song, then import the 2nd. Mouse over the second song to highlight it, copy and paste it at the end of the first song. Delete 2nd song from the list of tracks.

https://sourceforge.net/projects/audacity/

Have fun!
Mike

P.S. Doubt you can buy sd cards with songs due to copyright issues.

If you are looking for your very own custom MIX at an affordable price, shoot me a PM. Professionally cut, edited, and levelled for a smooth overall gameplay experience. With YOUR favorite music.

Going to Replay? If so, you will want to check the Pinball MIX tent and say hi.

You'd be surprised what can be done with Maiden ...

I like most of the tunes except Run to the Hills, I wish I could change only that tune to a Megadeth song, like Peace Sells or Wake Up Dead. Anybody do this for me by chance?

I'd like to be able to add more songs to the list, but it doesn't seem possible. Know any secrets on that Mark?

Thanks!

Hello Mike,

I can't add more songs on top of what is stock, but I can replace the existing music with a client's music.

You can, however, easily go back and forth between your custom mix and stock. So, it is like having twice as much music to play in your machine.

#4986 4 months ago

Howdy Mark,

"You can, however, easily go back and forth between your custom mix and stock. So, it is like having twice as much music to play in your machine."

Is there a way to do it without swapping out the SD-Cards?

I was hoping to write multiple images to a 32gb SD card, but never could figure it out. Would be cool if, during boot you could select Mix 1,2,3 or 4.

Cheers!
Mike

#4987 4 months ago

Nope. You need a Pinsound for that magic. Still, the manual swap is quite quick. Like seconds, not minutes.

#4988 4 months ago

Thanks Mark! Pinsound going into TZ soon, I'm leaving IM alone it sounds great with our external subwoofer!

Are all the songs used in modes?

Quoted from yuriijos:

I believe the songs listed twice in pinballbrowser are used in modes. But so long as you enjoy what you've picked nothing else matters We have Aerosmith Walk this way on during flight of icarus mode. They both were 3m:39s, so it was an easy replacement. In a few weeks it will be something else. Iron Maiden has long songs so it took 3 Metalica songs to replace Rime of The Ancient Mariner. If we hear the final song shout at the devil, we know it was a good game. Maybe it will be the Who's pinball wizard in the future perhaps. But we stuck with metal/hard rock for now to keep it in theme.

It's easy enough to change things back if you ever feel different, we have two sim cards that we keep shuffling the music around on a bit and kept the original untouched.

Cheers!
Mike

So I have a question for everyone who has tuned their machines - did any of you mess with the flippers by lowering or raising them to help with shooting the ball up the ramps ? Some days I can nail them np then others days I’m brick city

Are you flippers centered to the holes on the play field ?

#4996 3 months ago

I only had to change the auto plunge so it would make the loop, too strong and it hits the lower post on our machine.

Feature #78 set to 220 now.
