Quoted from Angel:

I was never much of an Iron Maiden fan, outside of a few select songs. I played the pin, really enjoyed it and purchased a premium version about a month a go. The music slowly grew on me, to the point where I am now listening to a lot more Iron Maiden and starting to appreciate it more and more.

interesting

Wasn't there another plastic piece Stern was providing to help prevent balls from getting stuck somewhere in the back of the playfield? I thought I read a post about that awhile ago - but I can't find it in this long thread.

I ask because I emailed Stern support asking for the metal piece and also the ball protector, and they said they only have record of the metal piece -- if there's a specific post, I can forward it to them and ask.

If you have the Pro, there's a kit to keep the ball from getting stuck on the left in the Piece of Mind asylum area by the far left bumper. But I've heard they've stopped giving this kit out for free. YMMV. Looks like this when installed (it's the raised piece of plastic):

On the Premium, I made a standoff to keep the ball from getting stuck between the left side of the ramp and the moving Sarcophagus.

It's the larger piece in this kit: https://www.pinballlife.com/iron-maiden-upgrade-kit.html

If someone gets a chance, can you take a photo of the position of your upper flippers. Want to see if they're aligned with the toothpick hole, or slightly off.

Thanks in advance

#6156 8 months ago

will these do?

Quoted from JonCBrand:

Are the flippers aligned with the holes? Like the center of the flipper tip it lined up with the hole?

And was it like that from the factory?

#6158 8 months ago

I'd say they are centered over the holes. I am the second owner of this pin so I cant say for sure if they have been removed at any time.

#6159 8 months ago
Quoted from MANTO1975:

does anyone know how late in the run stern replaced the mylar with the metal loop protector, I have an LE and just wondering if it would have already been installed.
cheers

Talk to Michael at AMD and he will post you one.

That's where mine came from factory. Tips right at the holes.

Is it just me or do these seem to be off?

I am thinking about giving this machine a whirl, but wanted to secure a different custom music mix someone has created first. If someone could point me in the right direction I would appreciate it.

Pinball Mix does a stellar job.

Number of the Beast reached!!!

Was so excited I called my wife to see (she's sweet, she actually pretended to care).

Unfortunately I think I made one shot and got 3 million for the mode! YIKES!!!

Although I didn't see much of it, I have to say it's a bit lackluster now that we see what Keith can do with JP.

Having single ball and a LOT of shots to hit makes it feel like a regular mode, not a final wizard.

Really hope sk8ball revisits this. I think he's made JP one of the greatest games ever, and probably the best wizard modes in all of pinball. Hoping he brings Maiden up to that level.

#6166 8 months ago

Twice as much code in JP!

Of more interest is Keith's comments about mini-games.

Who knows, maybe IMDN will get a mini-game

I just created these apron cards for an IMLE owner, so I wanted to offer them to the group. Cost is $10 per set (includes US postage - $12 per set if outside US). The cards are printed on a 6 ink photo quality printer using OEM inks and heavy ultra high gloss OEM photo paper. I then coat them with a clear gloss vinyl laminate, cut to size, then color the edges so that the white of the paper does not show.

Please PM me if interested in purchasing (sorry, but I do not share my artwork/files).

You used the trooper beer label as a watermark? Because there isnt a ton of Iron Maiden art out there to work with?
Most people just share their homemade arts and crafts cards. Asking for money for junk art with bad fonts and at least 3 spelling errors? Don't quit your day job

You forgot the "Use Flippers to select soundtrack at game start" is wrong -- it's before every ball, much to my dismay (it USED to be settable at game start only.... Bring that back, Keith!).

Congrats! It’s actually a really cool mode. I wish we had the option as a 1-ball mini mode battle for head to head multiplayer *cough* JP *cough*. But, I felt same way you did first couple times, I just didn’t understand what to do at first and would drain before I understood it. That said, I’ve battled the beast approx 5-6 times and the last time I did it I had an absolute blast and got him down to 3 HP, so close!

I just wish it had more balls so the mode would last long enough to appreciate it, sort of like LMS in TWD. I'm not sure when I'll see NOTB again, so wish my memory of it was better.

Seeing what Keith did with JP, I could see myself wanting to play again to see it (although I know I can cheat it and hold both flippers to access it).

#6176 7 months ago

I've got myself too excited for a code update. I've been checking Sterns website at least daily now lol.
lm crossing my fingers that we will see an update in the next week or so. My logic being that there were about 2-3 weeks between each of the more recent JP3 updates. JP3 hit 1.0 on Feb.19th. Fingers crossed that means Maiden is in the next week or so.
Non gameplay related updates I'd like to see (there is a whole thread for gameplay updates and bug fixes)
-Another track or two?
-A Powerslave mode (one of their best albums and the theme embraced by this machine but no mode?)
-maybe a wizard mode cheat a la JP3?
-power pyramid stats shown before plunge
-soft reset to attract mode
-legacy of the beast video game intro in attract mode (it really gives you a bit of a story to the gameplay)

Come on sk8ball lets see it. You rock harder than Maiden

#6177 7 months ago

Isn't powerslave the mummy multiball? Same way trooper is trooper multiball and not an individual mode.

#6178 7 months ago
Quoted from greenhorn1:

Fair enough. Hadn't considered that. So with mbs and modes, all songs are covered.....so lets get a new track or two to tie a mode to lol.
Trooper = trooper mb
Powerslave = mummy mb
Wasted years = cyborg mb
2m2m = 2m2m mini wizard
Number of the beast = wizard battle
Run to the hills = unattainable mini wizard lol
Cipwm = premium (only) multiball
Rotam, fotd, aces, hbtn, icarus = mode tree

Note.....Part of an existing 3d print that I changed a bit and added a light to that works of the Gi. My apologies as my use of the word “design” was open for interpretations not intended. My use of the word design was to reference that I haven’t seen a toy like this in an Iron Maiden machine. I should have used the word “made”. Hope this clarifies.

It's in a weird place. It matches cyborg multiball most closely, but it's on the opposite side of the machine from the cyborg, so it seems out of place.

#6188 7 months ago

Yeah I see that. It runs off the gi so it can be placed anywhere. I chose there because most of my mods are already on the right, and I thought it would be different nestled over the loop between the ramp and return.

#6189 7 months ago

I love the mod!! Can you tell me a bit more about it

#6190 7 months ago
Quoted from DanieB:

It is made out of gold colored material and has the eye open for the light to shine through. Connects to the Gi and was super easy to install. Thinking about making more if people are interested.

#6191 7 months ago

I definitely would be interested!! I see that you mentioned that it can be put anywhere. What are the dims and price

I've always disliked the tomb mod that is available. This would look much nicer on the mummy captive ball. Nice job. Maybe a red or yellow light would look best?

I have a pro but I've always been a bit surprised nobody had made some with pyramids or the eye of ra for the premium and LE models.

#6196 7 months ago

Someone should do another EDDIE face on a acrylic that’s not on the playfield. The first Iron Maiden album with young Eddie would look pretty sick! Do it speakerlightkits.com!

#6197 7 months ago

Hi all ;o)

My left flipper is too weak and impossible to reach the ramp... i have dismounted all the flipper assembly, verify the coil stop, verify the gap with the playfied, verify the EOS... all seems ok...

I think to replace the coil for a stronger. But with which coil ? Actually the reference is : 090-5020-30-ND

Thanks for your help.

But that album isnt Bruce. I'd be trying to stick to Bruce timelines if it were up to me.

#6199 7 months ago

Actually, you know what might work well? If someone copied the pharaoh template from the premium center ramp. Keep that going in the speakers. Not for me but I could def see it on a premium model.
