Quoted from Eskaybee:

For me personally, I notice myself getting soul shards when I focus on tasks one a time rather than stacking. i.e. playing hallowed, fear, or Icarus as single ball play rather than stacking them with mummy or trooper multiball. On the flip side, this also helps me achieve the mummy/trooper super jackpots to get their Tomb awards.

That 3-ring target is such an underrated mechanic. It’s used so much in the game and I love looking up at the display to see whether I got a 1x, 2x, 3x soul shard or whatever multiplier award comes from it like the mummy super. hell I got a 6x mummy super the other day and was ecstatic to both see the award displayed and hear a sixtuple call out.
You can tell the designer is the #1 player in the world, we all know that. But what I mean is a lot of focus of the praise on this game is on gameplay and rules; but there’s another element that really gets unnoticed and that is with the games synergy with doubling up shot direction; whether it’s the display + inserts dictating what you need to do to progress, or the display + a call out, or the inserts + a call out, or all 3! And Such good use of the display to show scoring too, hitting key shots and being able to easily see values for those shots at a moments notice. Those are the little things that get missed in most modern pins and why I feel IMDN and Keith + co absolutely hit a grand slam with this title.

Any chance you can explain how you achieve a 6x Mummy SJ?

2x playfield + bullseye (3x)

Quoted from Graysonsdad:

Does someone have the rubbers list for the pro model please?
I'm looking to make a titan order and want to make sure I get the right ones.
Thanks

Quoted from Graysonsdad:

Also if anyone has changed their rubbers, I'd like to see how it looks if you have pics. I haven't decided on a colour yet.

I'm leaning toward Navy blue, Orange or a bit of a mix of the 2. I don't usually like to see mixed rubber colours but I feel there are spots that just work well with blue and some with Orange. Hell, I'm mildly thinking of putting 2 dark green post covers at the plane ramp to make it more obvious to my kid and guests

#2954 12 months ago

I love that bullseye shot (yea I already said that), but I’ll reitterate, there’s a lot of rules associated with it. And, I’ll have to double check when I get home, but think my high is 21 bullseyes in one game. Love the ego boosts high score tables for this game

Perhaps someone else can confirm - I understand the post sleeves are apparently tapered, if I understand it correctly. You'll get significantly more airballs if you install regular sleeves. Just from what I recall reading in early discussions, I haven't changed them myself... Not sure if Titan or others offer those, but I've been curious what the options are there if accurate.

#2958 12 months ago
Quoted from DrMark12PA:

1) I'm looking at ordering some Mylar instead of using any Cliffy or other protectors on this game. What areas have owners been protecting and with what products? My games don't see heavy usage. I haven't looked at the playfield yet to see what factory installed Mylar is already installed.
2) I'm putting together my order for new rubber rings but wondering if there is a difference between the PinballLife silicone rings and the Titan rings. I have some left over Titan but have order for shaker, etc with PinballLife so thought if the colors were the same to just place the 1 order with PinballLife if I could use my Titan leftovers with the PinballLife rings. I would like to use the translucent but they don't come in all the needed sizes it would appear.
3) when ordering post sleeves for IM, do I order Stern slim or standard? On Titan kit database I see conflicting use of both.

I'm happy with an entire playfield protector and Cliffy's at the trough eject/shooter lane, drop targets, and the underworld scoop beneath the ramp. You can install the playfield protector a lot easier with a single cut at the upper orbit and avoid removing the left ramp or mummy tomb ramp. That way, you can remove the flippers and right ramp alone, which is easy to do.

I’ve just had my Maiden Premium for a short while; but man does this pin kick serious ass.
It may go down as one of Stern’s finest efforts.
The rules, variety of shots, call outs, lighting and flow are simply amazing.
Love the lcd animations and non-stop high energy of the game-play.
It’s really too bad that those who don’t love Maiden as a band will ever give this a fair shake.
Stern simply knocked this pin out of the park.
Amazing game.

Can't confirm if tapered, doubt it.

I CAN confirm that the most beat up post sleeve on mine was the one on the right of the center ramp. I replaced that one with a synthetic one and it resulted in SIGNIFICANTLY more airballs. I put a plain rubber, not tapered, one back on it and all is fine.

I’m 6 months in and haven’t had any game sustain my interest like IMDN. I like it so much I’d buy the original Archer version if Stern did it.

I got mine for dallas. 6th row

#2965 12 months ago

If you don't have the manual, go to Stern's website under the game and download it. It will tell you what all the rubbers are. I went with the dark blue titan rubbers on mine. I'll try and get a pic of them.

I'm thinking light blue lower playfield, orange upper playfield with purple post sleeve at the orb. Pics would be much appreciated.

Yes, They are tapered. I don't know if Titan have made the sleeves tapered ?

In IMDN all sleeves are slim and tapered, and as suggested would reduce airballs.

https://www.titanpinball.com/kits/index.php/view/id/788

I guess Stern is using these slim tapered sleeves in all their games now ?

#2969 12 months ago

Someone told me that pro version of this game includes printed manual. Can anyone confirm? Past Stern practice has been printed manuals for prem and LE only. Thanks.

I got a printed manual with my pro

I did Dk. Blue for all the rubber rings. I left the flipper rubbers black as I was going to put toppers on them, but didn't like the quality of them when I got them. Jagged cuts and not rounded. I left the post sleeves as black doesn't look bad on this machine and they are tapered to reduce air balls and nobody makes them tapered that I know of. The purple from Titan and PBL are to light IMO. Superbands have a dark purple that I think would look great, but I didn't want that much bounce. I might still try them though. I also did the gel light inserts from Mezel Mods and it looks awesome. Way better than just the white mode lights.

"Manual" might be stretching it. They're more like pamphlets these days.

#2973 12 months ago

Does anyone pay attention to the beacon light while playing? I used try to, but not any more. It's supposed to act as a timer and also help indicate where you hit on the bullseye target.

I'm kinda curious about "Can I Play with Madness" mode that's only on the Prem/LE, but the Pro plays great.

KME said he prefers the game with that mode turned off, using the Pro version +15M power jackpot instead for the 3rd tomb award.

Keith is a 100 times better than I am--it is a big deal for me to get to CIPWM, and it is a really fun mode.

Congratulations! and welcome to the club.

The manual is supposed to be inside a bag stapled to the inside of your cabinet same as all your other games came NIB. If you do not get one, talk to your distro as it should come with the machine.

Keep persisting!

I spent another 2 hours messing around with the auto launch and finally found the sweet spot and had 19/20 perfect in test.

Washer didn't work for me - I just had to keep tweaking prongs plus moving the screw until angle was correct.

A right pain!

#2984 12 months ago

Hi guys.
I'll admit right away, I haven't read the previous 2983 posts in this thread in search for my answer
so I'll come right to it; how or when do you get "Run to the Hills" multiball/mode ????

#2985 12 months ago

4th row in upper pavilion IRONS UPPED!

#2987 12 months ago

My Pro was delivered today. Looks pretty good next to my Pac-Man themed MAME cabinet. Home arcade is beginning to shape up! The manual/auto plunger is definitely going to need some tweaking as it is currently all over the place, but so far, I'm thrilled!

Stern needs to redesign their tournament button, so it doesn't stick out on the new cabs. I'd like to see a circular yellow one that sits flush like the start button.

Wow thats the first one I've seen to get to Run to the hills. You are a madman! Congrats!

#2992 12 months ago

That is something most of us will never see (due to lack of skill). I'd drop over dead if I made it to the 4th TA. Nice score!

#2993 12 months ago

I was excited just to make Madness Mode recently.

So much awesome depth to IMDN. was not even aware of Run to the hills, I thought NotB was wizard mode ?

How are you finding the post sleeves? Did you order stern slim? I'm apprehensive swapping the post sleeves as I've heard the tapered factory sleeve help minimize airballs. Have you noticed an increase in airballs? So far I've just picked flippers and slings. I may opt to leave much of it stock if it is affecting gameplay.
Did you do red sleeves at the right ramp or is it my eyes?

I've swapped mine out and the only ones that caused a concern (air balls) are the ones on the right ramp. Went back to the factory versions.

They are all orange. Just a crap photo. I haven't notice any more airballs, but the new rubbers do seem to be putting more spin on the ball.

What is the reason the both ends under the playfield have this shiny/glazed coating? Bare wood in the middle.
