Much more intuitive from the left, takes a little more thought/good timing to hit it from the right.

#5352 1 year ago

One of the coolest bands! Wasn't a fan before getting the game, but now I'm all in!

How did you get it, if you didn't order it or know what its for?

#5355 1 year ago
Quoted from finnflash:

He didn't order it. He is quoting another Pinsider.

RVH - That part goes along the back orbit, where balls shoot up the center ramp, hit the bullseye, and then fall straight down to the playfield. On initial games all that they put there was mylar. After several months they started installing this. So if you have a game that still has mylar, you can reach out to Stern Support with your serial number and they will ship you this replacement part which provides better protection against the ball drops.

Does anyone know if the new Maidens have upgraded leg brackets or are they still using the shitty brackets? Toying with just buying a NIB pro at this point.

I'm a little confused on what needs to be done during Mummy MB to earn the mummy card.

Can anyone shed some light or send a link to a rule sheet that explains it.

Thanks!

Rip the upper spinner, hit the captive ball. Repeat until card lights. The easiest card to collect because of this method and how easy those two shots are.

Can anyone post the location of the set screw Keith was talking about? I was not tracking what he was saying at all.

Quoted from Chalkey:

Dead center of the game along the back orbit. Directly to the left of the bullseye target. The screw is facing down towards the PF, and it’s screwed into the end of the metal guide.

Any tips on completing Mummy MB? I have been able to get the other 3 cards, but for some reason, I just can't get Mummy. I find it difficult because if I'm trying to trap a ball with the left flipper, I can't make the orbit because the little flipper us up.

Thanks!

Stage your flippers. You should be able to hold the flipper button in ~halfway to trap a ball while keeping the upper flipper down.

Work on your flipper staging. Cradle up on both flippers then back off the left button ever so slightly until the upper left flipper drops.

I know this has been talked about but my plunges are not making it all the way around.. with the plunger not just auto plunge . What should I try and adjust.

Quoted from mandelbloom:

Depends on where they are hitting, but my best results came from slightly adjusting/bending the ball guide where it exits the shooter lane. Basically just push that piece (just below the upper right flipper) either up or down to get the ball to go above the skill shot post or below the upper left flipper. Then you can adjust the auto plunge strength in the settings if you find that manual plunges make it and auto-plunges do not.

And hi semi-neighbor!

Reducing the speed of the auto launch helped me like you wouldn't believe.

Feature #78 reduce to 220 power. Mine was set all the way 270!

#5372 1 year ago

Put up two 400k+ games this morning including my personal best. I also got my first lvl2 trooper card today. Everything is coming up Milhouse!
I still don't think I've ever gotten a mummy card. I know what to do in theory (spinner, captive ball, repeat) but I'm just not doing it when it counts I guess.

Must be full moon or something. I just got my best score this morning also! Got Cyborg multiball for the second time as well, and one extra ball!

Wicked score! What's the strategy to get big points? I consistently get Cyborg, but my average score is like 300M.

I was one Mummy shot away from lighting Beast, and I think that game was like 520M.

Honestly I have no idea. Lol
Don’t drain?
Seriously though I think it was because I made a ton of loop orbits...
There’s a video on YouTube of robert gagnon where he removes the small flipper rubber and gets 4 billion or something by nailing the upper loop repeatedly.

#5376 1 year ago

Has anyone installed the Cliffy on the scoop under the ramp on Prem/LE?

Just wondering what's involved.

Quick strategy tips are:

1. Light revive immediately
2. Focus on loops
3. When you get PF multiplier make sure you only cash it in when you are ready to score big. Only cash it in when you have loop jackpot ready, or running FOTD or Hallowed modes. Also watch your Power Jackpot, once it hits a healthy number cash in the multiplier and then collect.

Newb question... How do you cash in?

#5379 1 year ago
Quoted from djreddog:

So Keith just dropped some interesting info today.
1. Big code update coming
2. The shooter rod was accidental
3. There is a set screw along the back loop that can be tightened or loosen. If you loosen it, it will make the ball go around the big loops slower. Tighten it up and it makes go faster.

Anybody know where this set screw is?

#5380 1 year ago
Quoted from WizardsCastle:Newb question... How do you cash in?

When you have the playfield multiplier lit it cycles between the in lanes via the flippers. He is saying wait until you have a big score coming, then activate the multi prior to scoring your big shot or modes. Basically move the multi away from the ball until you want it.

I overlooked this post assuming it was another photo of the orbit protector.

#5383 1 year ago

Big thank you to Pablo at stern - once I answered a few serial number questions the protector arrived 2 days later -pretty impressive seeing where I am located. Now just need hurricane Dorian to go away.

He took my address almost 3 weeks ago, and still have nothing. And I'm only 5 hours away from the factory.

#5385 1 year ago

Maybe ping him for a reminder? I received mine within approx a week or so from sending my serial number and a pic of the mylar condition. Just received and installed yesterday. I feel better knowing I don't have to worry about wear there going forward.

#5386 1 year ago

About to install a Cliffy on the opening under the ramp.

Does the ramp need to come off? Do I have to remove or unscrew anything to get it in?

#5387 1 year ago

Finished all the modes but didnt hit 2m2m (collected Fotd soul shard)
Trooper mb x2 (lvl1 card collected)
Mummy mb x3 (lvl 1card collected)
Cyborg mb completed (lvl 1)
I was excited to break my high score but also bummed at how close I had finally made it to battling the beast. Just a shot or two more to start 2m2m and I'd have been there. New personal best though.

How do you get 900m on Cyborg?!!!

I seem to get around 20 million

#5394 1 year ago
Quoted from Shapeshifter:

I seem to get around 20 million

from the TiltForums rules post: "Every Power shot increases the value of the SJP, and the SJP multiplier increases every time the Super Jackpot is collected"
plus OP brought 3x playfield in, so... first SJP was 4M + 500K for each soul shard collected, multiply that by 3x, double it for the second SJP, etc... you can see where the points come from

To be honest, I have never come close to getting that kind of score before. I did have 3x multiplier going on when I was doing it, and I think I hit like 6-7 SJP. Don't know exactly as balls were flying all over the place and I kept it alive for a little while. Just looked up after it was over and saw the score. Will probably never do it again.

#5396 1 year ago

Finally put up a new GC (700M) after figuring out how to use the pf multiplier a bit.

Now, if I could just figure out how to complete Mummy MB!

I went from.never having earned a mummy last week to earning one often. Once you get the hang of it and realize your progress continues on your next mummy mb it's pretty simple.
X amount of switch hits then the captive ball until mummy is collected again. Either shoot for the spinner then the captive ball or play how you are used to but remember to keep an eye on and hit the captive ball when possible.
Whatever letters you collect will still be lit when you make it back into mummy mb.

I think I've spelled MUMM once.

I can get to 2M2M more easily, so definitely need a new strategy.

Such an awesome game though!

Welp that would explain why I get so many balls stuck up there. I thought that screw was coming loose and tightened it up. I never realized that it tightened up the lane!

This is good advice. My strategy is to focus on spinners and captive with one ball during ballsave, can usually get 2-3 letters before ballsave ends. Then just before or right after ball save ends shoot for add a ball. Repeat spinner focus during ballsave. Then play all hot and wild and hope for the best.
