Quoted from vireland:

Yes.
It sounds like the wire to the opto has broken, at least partially, inside the insulation and is making intermittent contact. This is not unusual for Stern optos. Try wiggling the wires to the opto while in switch test to see if it triggers them.

Thanks. I’ll check that out. Is there a way to get power to the playfield without sticking some tape to the button inside the cabinet? This is my first stern so I’m getting a crash course on all of their quirks and ways to do things....

Pull the white button and it will stay powered even with the door open. Closing the door resets it to normal function.

Thanks again vire.

Wait....Pre/LEs have playfield power switches and Pros don't?

Here is a pic of the switches from my LOTR:

And.....of my IMDN Pro:

At some point between the beginning of the IMDN LE run and the Pro run Stern cost-cutted the high-power cutoff switch out. I don't think it was explicitly an LE vs Pro thing, just timing. My BKSoR doesn't have one either.

Then a bit later their lawyers probably found out and told them they were risking a massive lawsuit and they added it back in. My new DP Pro has it again.

My Premium doesn’t

#7357 22 days ago

Prem/LE owners, did you use blue loctite on the threads for the the ball post for sarcophagus/mummy?

After disassembly to install new roller switches in the sarcophagus, it just doesn't want to stay locked in. I flip the pf up, get it set so that it's registering hits, flip back down, and after a couple games it doesn't register anything. Spoon switches are my bane!

Something I'm missing, or do I just need to set it with loctite and let it dry up like that before playing?

I did use blue loctite there.

Yes, I used Locktite 2-4-2 on the hex post and the round bit above it when I replaced mine.

Mine snapped off! Pig of a job to get them removed for replacement (https://pinside.com/pinball/forum/topic/up-the-irons-the-iron-maiden-pinball-official-owners-club/page/146#post-5843371)

It’s an incredibly sensitive spoon and switch (shit design!). I had to centre the tip in the spoon by moving the switch stand-off. Left a 0.5-1mm gap between the switch leafs.

#7360 22 days ago

Perfect, thanks guys!

#7361 22 days ago

I have a pro version of the machine. I have the 2 Eddie figures from the premium version to install. Can anyone with the premium version let me know how they are installed? Thx for your help!

I like it on games with magnets right up the middle like TWD. Just pop the door open to release the ball at the right time. Sweet.

Anyone else using the exploit to blow the game up?

Cyborg should have a bracket and 2 screws , super easy. Piece of mind Eddie had to glue his feet to a new clear plastic behind the top left pop bumper. Remove the plastic on top of the pop bumper. That's how mine came.

Quoted from djreddog:

My best I've managed yet is to get ~3B out of Icarus. Didn't manage to get to 2MTM that game though. Of note, I had both revive lanes lit, and used them during the attempt, and it didn't stop the combo. Thought I saw someone mention that anything that has screen animations would cancel it, so that isn't entirely true. Although I don't believe the revive animations played.

It's another cost reduction from Stern...that they undid within just a few game releases. They took off the cutoff switch, then put it back later. But the one they have now is useless because instead of just cutting high power for the coils, it kills ALL power to the node boards, so if you want to test, say, the shooter lane switch without getting your finger slammed by the coil firing, can't do that. To enable the switches, you also enable the coils - so you're SOL.

Here's how I installed mine: https://www.flippers.be/iron_maiden_eddie.html

#7368 21 days ago

Thats an interesting idea....to have the piece of mind eddie over the popbumpers, similar to what people do with the neca figure. I really like that the left leg gets supported by the wireform, since all of my eddies have bent over.

Just outta curiosity have any music pins in the past added new songs with a new code ?

Metallica did.

#7372 21 days ago

Sweet !!! I don’t feel Team Keith would ignore a code update even with how busy they are .Not on this machine as it’s really close to perfection .This will always be theyre breakthrough game treat it as such boys!

Shout out to Mancave for the awesome flipper toppers. Great price, shipped immediately, and got them from Australia faster than lots of domestic shippers. I love them. Thanks sir!

#7377 19 days ago
Quoted from NeilMcRae:

exploit in IMDN. start icarus, start mummy, cradle up, wait for ball save to expire, let a ball drain, you've now frozen all the timers. I simply hit left and right ramps a few times and was getting 1B and 2B a shot. double flip, anything that plays an animation will kill it. stern know...

Cannot get this to work at all. Anyone else try it?

#7378 19 days ago
Quoted from TomN:

Yep. Just haven't been successful posting big scores because I keep hitting the power jackpot which starts the timers again.

#7379 19 days ago
Quoted from TomN:

I just tried it on a Pro. First time hit the power jackpot first shot before 1 ramp. Second try I got 1 ramp shot in before something started the timer back up. the timer did lock up both times.

#7380 19 days ago
Quoted from TomN:

I tried a couple times on a premium, and I couldn't keep the timers locked up. Not exactly sure what I'm doing wrong. If you have to keep hitting the ramps and nothing else, then that's probably my problem. Has anyone posted a video of this yet?

#7381 19 days ago

The ramps is how you rack up your score, but you can miss. The only thing you can’t do is hit a shot that will trigger an animation. Examples are power jackpot, center bullseye, trooper lock, etc.

#7383 19 days ago

That’s way better and eliminates the hunched over effect. Thanks.

Finally beat the bastad. I've battled him like 10 times or more easily. This day I win.

I must of missed some posts here recently in the last few weeks. How the hell are some of you putting up these massive high scores??

Scroll back 1 page. Scoring exploit/bug in the game.

Tried it a few times and could never get the timer to lock. I even hit a couple of ramp shots with nothing special score wise. A video of it in action would be nice.

#7390 18 days ago

It's really quite simple to trigger.

1. Start Icarus
2. Immediately start Mummy MB
3. Trap up both balls.
4. Let ball save timer expire.
5. Shoot the RIGHT ramp, then drain the other ball.
6. Timers are now frozen.

#7391 18 days ago

... and do not double flip

#7392 18 days ago

Man I found it pretty easy to set up, just can't seem to do anything with it!

Side note I've been wanting to try this forever and finally found it

#7393 17 days ago

Got the exploit going with 3X running.

Hit 2 ramps and died.

#7394 17 days ago

So this exploit is far from "hit a few ramps and get billions of points!". It appears it offers little to no advantage to the average player. I watched over an hour of the Twitch video linked and I'm not sure he got any more points than normal and he seemed like a better than average player. I'd like to see a video of someone pulling it off and scoring big. I'm going to try a few more times tonight, but I'm not holding my breath. On a positive note, it did get me playing my Maiden again. Such a great game!

Finished up with printing and painting my undead Anubis, and decided to add some torches as well. Finally installed Piece of Mind Eddie too, love the pop bumpers make the chains rattle and the sound plays as well.

I actually printed it all on my 3d printer. A lot of trial and error, and much use of a Dremel lol

#7398 17 days ago

OK, tried the exploit, but it didn't seem to work, but unsure if i found a glitch or if thats how the game is supposed to be. Ended up with 1.2B which is my best yet

Collected trooper
Collected cyborg
Finished modes, got 2 mins to midnight, collected super jackpot
Concentrated on getting mummy (started it with icarus at the start of the game and didn't even get one letter lit!)
Started mummy, got 3 letters, down to one ball
Relight battle with ramp shots
Hit centre ramp and 2 mins to midnight started again??????

Is that whats meant to happen, i thought i would have had to play all the modes again first
