Quoted from Billy16:

Well, according to the JJP fanboys GNR is now the best music pin ever and Maiden is basically a cheap home pin. That is a real bummer, as I really like Maiden--glad I now know better...

I ordered a new Iron Maiden Premium 2 hours AFTER the unveiling of GnR, LOL. I must really have issues.

Quoted from wontwa:

Finally joined the club yesterday, after checking in on this thread daily for the last 2.5 years - absolute blast of a game!

Congrats! I just did the same at the start of November, also with an IMDN Premium. Yeah, I waited to see GnR but I bought an IMDN Premium instead. I love the game, what can I say?

Quoted from Soulstoner:

Tried ordering IMDN from my distro and was told that it's been discontinued

I don't recall Stern ever issuing a "final call" for it, did they? Maybe it'll end up back on the line in the future.

I'm gonna tell you what got my autoplunge to 100%: I noticed that the ball guide would flex a little when the ball rolled through the curve. This flex can change the trajectory of the ball. I eliminated the flex by cutting about a 1" wide section out of a plastic Bondo spreader. This gave me a slender plastic wedge. I inserted this wedge between the gall guide and siderail. I should've taken some pictures of this. It's now buried under the plastics after I reassembled everything.

Quoted from Pinball-NJA:

And what is this? Just opened the cab to find this laying on the bottom?

It's part ID #9 (part number 535-1878-00) "Ball Lock Keepout Bracket" from the 5.24 Ball Lock Trough Assembly on sheet 48 of the manual. It attaches via 2 #6-32 screws to the ball lock trough bottom. Mine was bent out of shape and hitting a couple of things. See the pic below of my bent bracket circled in red. I had to bend mine back into shape as my screws were so tight I couldn't remove it to work on, and here your screws just fell out. You can use diagnostics to lower the trough, then turn off the machine, so you can screw it back on. Provided you find the screws in the bottom of the cabinet.

Quoted from Pinball-NJA:

Are you sure lowering the ramp low enough it will be low enough to put the crews on? I was about to lower the entire mech..

From what I remember (and keep in mind my memory ain't so great), when I lowered the sarcophagus lock mechanism to the lowest position in the test menu, it tilted down low enough so I could get a phillips head screw driver on the two screws that secured the keepout bracket, but I just could not manage to loosen my screws. It felt like I was going to strip the heads out, so I gave up and bent mine back into shape right there.

If you could lower the entire mech, that would be the thing to do, however, from what I remember, the captive ball is attached to it above the playfield, and you can't lower the entire mech very much before the captive ball hits the playfield preventing you from lowering it any further. You would have to remove the captive ball, and I think it may be secured with Loc-tite, as I could not easily get my captive ball off, so I gave up on that too.

I was never a big Iron Maiden fan simply because of the galloping basslines. I liked a lot of other things about their music, but I had to take that galloping bassline in moderation. Their music and iconography suits the pinball machine very well though. It's one of my favorite pins ever, and I don't mind listening to the song selection on the pin while I'm playing.
