Quoted from KLR2014:

Received my IMLE today, #400
This game is insanely good! Really impressed with the layout, shots and all the stuff put in. Love it!!!!

Looks as if you dimmed you backbox LED lighting. Looks better on picture than most picture posted. Thumbs Up. And up the Irons

#1502 1 year ago

Put 5 red bulbs in my pro for the 'LE' effect.

Not sure if I like it better or not.

Lol. I spent the time to REMOVE the fugly red leds from the bottom half of my LE.

It's fine with warm white LEDs in there. Still darker when it's "dark" and avoids the terrible color wash from the red on the plastics art, etc.

#1504 1 year ago

So I got my game finally. I love it. However, what is the deal the ramps? I can't hit them to save my life. They may as well be jackpot shots, as far as I'm concerned. Anyone else struggling with them or is it just me?

I'm getting better everday , starting to hit the ball on the flippers sweat spot , not easy but not that hard .

I tried it and took em out. They don’t have the same effects as the premium ... and they aren’t worth the red blotches

It's not just you man. I felt the same way when I first got my game. I'm better at the left ramp now than the right for some reason.

#1508 1 year ago

Those ramps look to be a lot easier to hit than they are. Upside is it is a great feeling when you finally string a few ramps together. Orbits are also tough to hit consistently.

#1509 1 year ago

Has anyone tried to do team play. Two couples, Players 1&3 on team and Players 2&4 on team. I've changed setting to "yes" team score.(on another Stern game) Did a four player game. Only displayed individual scores and no Team 1 and Team 2. Just wanting to know if the coded is fixed for "the game of the year".

Here is my lineup. Loving my Maiden. Best pin ever in my opinion, on looks, playability and lastibility. This is my first pin that will never leave....
And oh yes, i am a maiden fan for 35+ years....

Spend entire games learning only them. Focus on one side at a time. Ignore all other shots.

The L is later than it looks
The R is earlier than it looks

Funny.... I took the red out of my LE. I think it looks terrible. I did add spotlights to my slings just like MEtallica and tied them to the string that is turned off during FotD. It gets dark enough and doesn't color wash my plastics.

Going to try something else later - maybe just 4 red bulbs at bottom of p/f - taking the others out.

They sure aren't gimmies. I still can't get it through my head to flip that low on the right flipper to hit that left ramp.

Can you elaborate a little more on the sting that is used for FOTD? I'm thinking of adding spotlights as well.

#1517 1 year ago

Also, my favorite new skill shot is:

Hold up left flipper, full plunge to bottom right flipper, one flip into the orb. I can hit this one about 75% of the time for 10 Million, +X +3mil power jackpot boost.

#1518 1 year ago

Red at the bottom.

Not sure I like it.

Probably go back to warm whites!

Plastics at bottom are purple. Purple Cointaker - frosted.

It's this or back to warm white.

Or one warm white and one purple!

No more experimentation!

Warm + purple looks good.

Have you tried orange in place of red yet? That’s what I keep thinking would be best, some personality without the sharp infrared impact of actual red.

Never shoot the right ramp unless you have a multiball going. Never break this simple rule and your scores will shoot though the roof. This game is multiball heavy, and you should always stack a multiball with modes that use that ramp, like fear and Icarus.

What happened to the top of the box?

That’s my shaker and stern t-shirt that I got with it.

#1525 1 year ago

Well today is the day, my Pro is arriving via R&L in between 1 and 5! I will be upgrading it over the weekend with a few parts that have been sitting on my workbench for the last month or so (a shaker and BW leg brackets from Terry along with Flipper Fidelity replacement speakers).
Up The Irons \m/.

Don't have any orange but would have tried if I did.

Keeping warm white and purple I think.

Quoted from pinstadium:

I thought I would post this up if anyone is looking to upgrade their instruction cards on their Iron Maiden to replace the yellow cards. The other thread asked me to post this so I figured I would get it to you guys here too. Just print on high gloss photo paper and then cut it in the center to make both cards. Enjoy!

Seeing scores posted here reminds me that I am a terrible, terrible player.
Don't care though, since the game is fun even when I suck at it.

#1538 1 year ago

So.... um.... does anyone else find these shots right and hard to find? The left spinner, left ramp, right ramp and right loop are all super hard for me to find. Also, the balls seem hard to control. I'm finding this a lot harder than I thought I would.

#1539 1 year ago

Lower your playfield angle bruh. Play with your settings til you're happy with it.

Quoted from jorant:

It‘s so interesting to see how this is such a personal experience. I have a relatively new TNA and Iron Maiden. while i struggle to hit any shots on TNA consistently, Iron Maiden is very predictable for me, i can hit the left ramp from a cradled position like 80%.

I had the same experience with the shot trough the bumpers on Kiss, so i think it just suits my sense of geometry in some kind...
there are some shots that are laid out for your personal playstyle and others that are not. I struggle so hard to find the shots on many other games for months...

Figuring out shots that go against your natural playstyle: that’s where a really skilled play can adapt faster, i suppose.

#1541 1 year ago

Change all of this until you are enjoying your multi thousand dollar toy the way you want to & seeing some of awesome modes and effects this game has to offer:

-# of Balls and extra ball settings
-mode settings/timers
-machine height/pitch
-outlanes
-tilt bob
-flipper strength (game ships with purposely weaker flippers)

If you buy a car, do you just drive it without adjusting the steering wheel, seats, mirrors, etc? Not an exact likeness- but you get my point...

I kind of agree with you, but a part of me disagrees with you. I like to try to keep my game setup mostly how it might be in the wild. That way my score reflects what I might put up, and what others get. It just makes me appreciate what I get and the modes that I have gotten to. I have only gotten cyborg multiball I think 2 or 3 times.
I think the one thing that really pisses me off.
Is how hard it is to light revive. Most of the time you need 3 really good spinner shots to get it lit. And on most games it gets lit on the 2nd or 3rd ball.
And I think you should have it lit at the beginning of the game. Then get it lit the first time easy. As the second time is way to hard and I think I've only re-lit it like a handful of times. That to me would make the game much more playable and enjoyable. As I think the ramps are made too hard to shoot for and susceptible to causing drains. And also I think the lane posts are too small, and again make it much more difficult to keep the ball in play. They should be bigger.
But, I won't be modding my game, cos I don't want to be labeled as a cheater. I just want to get better.
I only just gotten Can I play with Madness for the first and only time so far three days ago. A bit disappointing so far, but it only lasted a few seconds for me.
And so far I have yet to break 300 million. 288 million is my best game so far. Which is funny... I got like 160 million on my first ball. Then I got one extra ball from completing first tier of pyramid, then I have the replay set at 108 million to reward me an extra ball. So I got another one. And... Yet even with 5 balls and that monster of a first ball, I failed to get to 300 million.
But, what was nice is I heard the lady do the quite the baller callout. I've gotten the Beast to say that to me a couple of times, but that was the first time the lady did.
And that is what I like about this game. The callouts/taunts are very, very, very deep. I've played the hell out of it. And yet I still have so much new stuff to experience.
One thing that does piss me off. Sometimes I don't get the super secret skill shot down the left drain for 25 million. Sometimes it says BALL SAVE. And I'm like bull shit. Give me my 25 million. And the ball hits NOTHING. Its a clean plunge into that lane.
Oh well. Great game. And someday I hope to be 300 million plus. I doubt I'll ever get into number of the beast or 2 minutes to midnight mode. As the most Eddie's I've ever collected are 2. And I think 1 soul shard.

Quoted from Diospinball:

Can I play with Madness is one of my favorite modes I have every played on any pinball machine. But you really need to progress past the 1 shot phase to enjoy it. The 1 shot phase can be frustrating, and doesn't actually have the features that make the mode cool.

The only other thing I dislike about it is that it is usually blocking me from playing something I need for 666. And right now I am mostly focused on trying to get back to and beat the Beast.

To get the outlane super skillshot the ball has to go halfway up the loop as if you miffed the super skill shot.

Quoted from Eskaybee:

I've gotten it before. Didn't think it had to go up the loop... Could be mistaken... Anyway. Not a biggie. As I just focus on the easier to get skill shot.

Man... I wish I was half the player you must be. You gotten to the beast... If I am really lucky maybe one day I wll get there... For 5 seconds...

I just got to cyborg multiball, but wasnt entirely sure what the objective was?

#1548 1 year ago
Quoted from jorant:

Hit each of the power features at least once, then hit the orb. On the first 2 stages, doing this will add a ball into play and activate the ball saver.

#1549 1 year ago

Confirmed with glass off:

1. When all ball saves are turned off(there are 2 different ball save settings), hitting any of the secret skill shots that normally award a ball save extension, does NOT give you a ball save. Below are all of the skill shots I have uncovered and confirmed.

2. Short Plunge to Left Outlane = 25M and no ball save. You can also do a full plunge and use the right upper flipper to shoot the outlane for the same award. (+10 seconds ball save time if this is enabled)

3. Short plunge and shatz the Left inlane = 5M and no ball save

4. Center ramp = 6M and no ball save (+10 seconds if ball save enabled)

5. Short plunge to Left flipper and shoot Right orbit = 8M and no ball save

6. Hold Left flipper up and hit super jackpot target = 10m plus x playfield

7. No flippers up, shoot the extra ball target = 1M plus Eddie letter (+5 seconds of ball save if this is enabled)

8. Hold Left flipper up, full plunge, and one time shot to the orb = 10m, plus boost power jackpot X. (+5 seconds ball save if enabled)

I’ve tried numerous combinations of only the right flipper up as well as both flippers up. Haven’t found the others yet.
