Quoted from tilted81:

Those do look sweet, but I just don’t care for the art on the sides as much as I like mirror blades. I’ve got the creeping death blades on my metallica and while I like it.. every time I go to my buddies and look at his metallica I note how much cleaner and brighter it looks. That said, if my maiden is too tight for blades I’ll likely go this route

Very good point,

The Creeping death blades are a little dark
What PinGraffiix has done for IMDN looks bright enough
They Just need to make a premium set that pops now

I do like the clean look of mirrors in my METLE

Quoted from PinKopf:

Just joined the club after buying a show game from Marco Specalties for SFGE. Loving it so far, I'm a fan of Iron Maiden so it would have been silly for me to not end up getting one of these eventually. Might as well be now...
Question for the group, what is the easiest/cheapest way to step up the sound quality a bit, without an external sub? I need to read back through the thread focusing more on sound improvements. It sounds good stock, but seems just a little "tinny" our something. Just looking for a little improvement, I'm not an audiophile. Not sure if just a replacement cab woofer is the way to go, or if the head speakers are needed too/instead for the best bang for your buck.

Quoted from jorant:

So I'm not an iron maiden fan... like... at all. And yet the game does look awesome. Anyone here think the theme can be sorta overlooked and still enjoy the game? I love Metallica and dont care about that theme either, mostly because the game focuses more on the things IN the game like snakes and sparky. Would you say it's the same thing here?

I was not an IM junkie before playing the game - and found it so fun I bought it. It's got incredible flow, so much excitement -- really really really fun. While I think that if you're an IM fan it's even more amazing, it's amazing regardless of whether you connect with the theme. And while I didn't know their music very well before, I actually enjoy the music now that I'm listening to it all the time.

Thinking maybe this is the answer? Toying with buying a set. Can get 10 inch but not keen on glass rattle.
https://flipperfidelity.com/sound/stern-speaker-systems/stern-spike-speaker-system-with-8-high-output-woofer.html

I would go with the 8”. Also it should come with anti-rattle tape for the edges of the glass.

#1356 68 days ago
Quoted from tryton1000:

I think I found a bug. If you start a 2 player game and on the second player ball, if your going thru the song list it will go into ball search and shoot out your ball. Can anyone confirm? I have a premium with 1.0 code

Yes I have experienced the same thing several times, I though it was just me.

I ordered the 10" flipper Fidelity set. The subwoofer in my AC DC doesn't cause any glass rattling problems so I'm not too concerned.

#1358 68 days ago

Man, that is a whopper--let us know how the new sound is when you get it installed.

#1359 67 days ago

I put the black trim on. I like it much better than the yellow

20180612_170418 (resized).jpg
#1360 67 days ago

Yeah, that does look better. Stern must have got a great deal on a dusty roll of mustard yellow edging somewhere...

#1361 67 days ago

Yeah, here it is with both sides. Much nicer

#1365 67 days ago

hello

one little question :
there is a jukebox mode like ac/dc ? or not ?

thanks

Nope

#1367 66 days ago

48 hours til my Premium shows up. Playing the LOTB mobile game in the meantime to get familiar with the theme.

#1368 66 days ago

I just placed an order for mine. Now I play the waiting game. I will have Metallica and iron maiden in a two pin lineup.

#1369 66 days ago

Placed my order for a premium mid april…. no shipping news yet
JJ said, he hopes this week sometime.
Happy, but sad seeing others.

#1370 66 days ago

Showed up at noon, upgraded to 1.00.0 and played some Maiden. I got 250M on my second game, so I am thinking I have some adjustments to make. It was multiball madness.

Disable EB’s, turn off all regular ball saves, turn all MB ball save times to 5 seconds, Eddie letter difficulty to medium, Mummy MB to zero letters at start and set decounce to 750. That’s how my game is setup.

How do you like it compared to Luci?

#1374 66 days ago

Same waiting boat here...ordered back in April and was told by Cointaker this week. Jealous seeing so many already delivered to their new homes.

#1375 66 days ago
Quoted from pinballaddicted:

I have the regular Premium (not the Luci) but it is too early to tell, as I love the AC/DC quite a bit.

Artwork on IMDN is definitely better for me, but there is a bit too many balls and craziness for my brain right now. This may change as I learn it and adjust, but so far I like the general play/flow of AC/DC better (I am sure I will get burnt on a stake for saying that).

The IMDN playfield feels a bit underlit to me out of the box and I think the sound might even be better on the AC/DC? Is that nuts?

Too early to tell. It is a really fun pin.

#1376 66 days ago
Quoted from trilamb:

Yeah you guys could be done buying pins if you had to with just MET and IMDN. Congrats!

A couple of months ago I picked up my IMDN and went to pick up a nicely modded MET from a seller the next day. I was pinching myself that whole weekend. I still can't believe it.

#1377 66 days ago

Placed my order for a Pro. Great playing pin lots of fun. Three great art packages to pick from. Also for me Great theme. Can't wait.

#1378 66 days ago

...did it just say "Quadruple Super Jackpot"?

I love this game.

#1383 65 days ago
Quoted from jorant:

For anyone that loves this pin but isn't wild about the iron maiden theme, has anyone considered replacing the songs with their instrumental versions? That way you still get the songs without the singing? I was thinking about this, and it would just make the game more like a better sounding Judge Dredd?

I'm doing a disco version.

#1384 65 days ago

Just got it home Sunday - here's my IMDN Pro tucked into my meager collection. Awesome game, so many cool little details with the code and shots, combos, etc. Longtime Maiden fan here, so a perfect package for me personally.

How much does the Shaker motor add to this game?

Considering getting a shaker for my Pro

thanks!

Get a shaker, integration is great and youll love it. I recommend pbl shakers as they are less expensive but better designed than the stern shakers. It has a bolt you can tighten on the motor housing too if it rattles compared to the stern shakers which do not have that bolt.

I had to drill and install a bolt and lock washer to a stern shaker installed by my dist which sounded like a lawnmower when I got it. After installing I can now feel my shaker instead of the whole house hearing it.

#1387 64 days ago

Shaker works nice in the pro. Grab a external sub too!

Decided to make my own Iron Maiden LE. With black jack and hookers. All mods, work and concept done by me. Enjoy. I may offer a kit powdercoat armor, red t mold and speaker lights. I need Egyptian art blades and a red start button

Nice - I dig the gold trim!

I'd add lighted flipper buttons too and do an LE one better.

#1393 64 days ago

That gold looks SICK! That's the way it should have came from Stern! Very cool!

#1394 64 days ago

Nice look! Cant wait to see what some of the pro owners come up with as well!

Yeti confirmed working on custom blades for pro/premium from Stern.

#1395 64 days ago

Egyptian art blades...couldn't agree more!

#1396 63 days ago

I have a Pro, and the auto-plunger usually shoots the ball all the way around the loop. However when I manually plunge, I'm lucky if it gets to the top of the loop where it falls down and rolls to the upper-left flipper - I can hit it roughly 50-60% of the time. However I thought I read other people talking about plunging in a way that doesn't make it go all the way around the loop - something I can never do.

Is there something I should be doing with the manual plunger to make it better? Or is this how it's supposed to be?

The ball must be bouncing off the guide rails. Unscrew and adjust your manual plunger.

You've just walked into the holy quest for plunger equilibrium. You can get the manual working right, or the auto--but unless you are lucky not both.

Nice job. I love the look of this machine. The gold makes it look like a LE. The American flag sleeveless is an interesting mod
