Considering picking up a pro model...
Weren't there issues with stern playfields recently?

#316 3 years ago

Thanks for the input guys! Who does anyone recommend to purchase one from ? I'm in buffalo ny .

Was able to get some games in today! I typically don't care for music pins but I've always liked Iron Maiden. Loved the 4 flippers and game flow.Would like to add this to my collection ! Even my wife agrees!

Quoted from Lermods:

Going to PC my pro. Ordered a few swatches. I like either the red or orange. The pic doesn't show it well,.but it has a Metallica flake/sparkle in it. It's from the prismatic illusion family, illusion orange and illusion red. Leaning toward orange.
What do you think?


#630 3 years ago
Quoted from chuckcasey:

Ordered heavy duty leg bolt plates from Marco and bought some #10 1/2” pan head screws and L bracket kits. Took about 15 minutes per side. I’ve only down the front on Maiden so far. You really need to remove the playfield, IMO, to do the rear properly.
Now that I’m done with IM I’m going to do the others.

Where did you get the top brackets from?

#807 3 years ago

do these come with cabinet protectors or do I need to purchase a set?

#1025 3 years ago

Impressions after a weekend of playing ...
Game play, modes,being able to pick your songs after each ball and call outs are amazing!!! LOVE the British babes accent. I played this on location a few times and it feels even better once it's in your collection!

This is my first stern and on a down note, I noticed that the cabniet feels whimpy
compared to my 90s Williams games. I did however like that the decals are cut away form the mounting point for the legs
Also I was slightly disappointed with the sound quality of the speakers. I thought for sure this would stand toe to toe with my DP BOP 2.0. Not the case.

Lastly If anyone is on the fence about this game, don't be! Order one now!

Quoted from Vino:

Just a heads up for those considering side blades, ZY mentioned on a recent podcast he is making them, just not released yet.
May be worth holding off a bit to see them.

Who is ZY ? Who ever he is I hope he comes up with something good. I've been hoping for something that blends in with the backboard. Don't care for anything that's out there now.

Quoted from jorant:

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?

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.

The pro is a bit faster, more brutal and tougher to play. Depends what gets your juices flowing...for me that's the pro. Play both and decide.

#1795 3 years ago

Going to install a cliffy for the shooter lane but, how should I remove this post? Nothing on the underside. I'm afraid of damaging the clear.

image (resized).jpeg
#1797 3 years ago
Quoted from chuckcasey:

Not sure which Cliffy you purchased? I worked with Cliff at the Golden State Pinball Festival and purchased the one that fits Aerosmith. When I got home I had to alter it because of the post under the metal side round screws. I didn't need to remove the post because the Cliffy fit around it. I plan to buy the REAL IM Cliffy for the shooter lane when he starts making it.
But to remove the post is no bid deal. It takes a LONG time using an combo wrench. The best way is with a nutdriver but typically the head of the post wont fit down the open shaft of the nut driver. Take your time and unscrew is with the hex at the bottom. It's a screw in post.

Ummm dude... I did get the REAL IM cliffy. It's on his site now!

#1851 3 years ago
Quoted from greenhorn1:

Question for everyone. If I buy a NIB pro what should I expect as far as the auto eject hitting the loop and is there a way to adjust the game if it is not making it consistently. To me a 90% success rate seems pretty bad but maybe that's what everyone is experiencing. This may be the deciding factor between me buying NIB or looking for a HUO one with a perfect auto eject. That just seems like a pretty essential gameplay feature especially on the pro (where it shoots the balls up there for start of trooper multiball)

Guess I'm pretty luck...my pro hits it everytime .

Quoted from Mudflaps:

Just order them through your distributor. The part number is 550-7422-00.
These figures aren’t rare or limited. If you like them vs. the MacFarlane toys, get them from Stern.

How about cyborg Eddie ? This can be obtained from stern as well?

#2387 3 years ago
Quoted from Mudflaps:

Part 550-7421-00. Available from Stern.

Can anyone post a pic of how this would mount ?

#2389 3 years ago
Quoted from Mudflaps:

It uses preexisting mounts on the right ramp. You’ll need a bracket. The part number is in the Premium manual (available online).

What bracket will I need ?

Here’s what you need if you want both Eddies:
Cyborg Eddie, part #550-7421-00
Piece of Mind Eddie, part #550-7422-00
Bracket for sculpt mount, part #535-1854-00
Screw 6x1/2 PTH A, part# 237-5809-00 (x2)

Quoted from PinMonk:

Just the auto and manual ball launch issues some people have been plagued with. Fixable, but annoying.
Also, if it's an early one, there may not be a plastic near the upper left pop bumper that prevents a ball trap. You can request it from Stern. The first run didn't have it.

Here are the part numbers for the pop bumper plastic for early run pros if anyone needs one.

#2997 2 years ago
Quoted from KnockerPTSD:

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.

Quoted from Sammy31:

You got 2 sided tape?? Not fair!
Have to agree with you there.
There is also a link for instructions that don't exist. Not that you need it but they don't say which order to place them in and they don't include a blue one for Aces High.... But they included a second red gel....
I've also had to repair 2 of their other mods to get them to work before installing... different game though...

Thanks for posting this. I've been considering getting this and almost put it on my Christmas list!

#3168 2 years ago
Quoted from KnockerPTSD:

Just a heads up to anyone looking to get mezel mods mummy plastic.....
It's cheap as hell. For the price I expected a proper gauge plastic similar to the Eddies. Its a razor thin piece of crap. You could print a photo card stock on a home printer of similar quality.
Oh, and the "insert gels"? Some squares of film and double sided tape? Going straight in the garbage. I ordered virelands light tree instead. Beautiful.
Mezel quality is lacking on this game. Overpriced trash.
Dont waste you money.

#3456 2 years ago
Quoted from jalpert:

The game was designed to be played at 6.5 degrees. I had a right ramp where the ball was flying off maybe 4 times out of ten, Stern sent me a new one and has been fine ever since.

If you need to raise the pitch of the game to have it play correctly, you aren't fixing the issue. My game is at 6.5 and everything works as it should. If you've dialed the game in while it was pitched higher, you will probably have to dial most things in again.

It's funny, people think raising the pitch makes the game harder because it feels faster. Usually, not every game, but usually raising the pitch of the game makes it easier. Raising the back decreases the amount of side to side action so the game usually won't side drain as often.

Do you mean the ball was flying off the wireform and not the ramp? My left wireform will do this from time to time.
Were you in warranty when they sent you a new one?

Does the new code have ball lock issues?

#3717 2 years ago
Quoted from Zukram:

I have not noticed any.. Have you, in any specific circumstance ?

I've just reading in some posting with the start of trooper multi ball where the balls won't lock even with the correct settings in 1.6. I own a pro

#3722 2 years ago
Quoted from Eskaybee:

No. And I’m a little confused as to what the issues others are having. New code does cause ball locks to act differently for Aces High and ROTAM modes.
As for trooper multiball, it should work like this: ball locks are virtual, nothing physically locks the ball and keeps it captive until multiball start. So it should act like this, light locks > shoot lock, ball temporarily locks and you get a call out and animation “Ball 1 Locked”, then it releases the same ball into play > hit lock shot again, “Ball 2 locked”, then releases ball back into play. Once you hit the 3rd lock, the game should hold the ball and spit out 2 balls and autoplunge load them one after the other around the loop til all 3 are captive. IF at anytime during the loading sequence, any switch registers the locks will release and just start multiball. If your autoplunge works 100% you’ll get a full effect trooper multiball lock and release sequence.
So to those having lock issues; is it trooper lock issues on a pro or prem? Or is it that the lock posts no longer hold for aces high and ROTAM? Or something else?

So how does the aces high and rotam behave now with the new code?

#3724 2 years ago

Much better! The flow is so nice now.

Quoted from djreddog:

For those of you that haven’t seen it yet, Robert Gagno live-streamed his gameplay on IMDN and he got to Run to the Hills and a score of over 3 billion. Enjoy.

Impressive ! I wonder what the pitch is set at. Game play seems a bit slower than mine. He does a good job of slowing down the game and great use of control.

Quoted from liorillusion:

i will just put it here.... hahaha
here is a sketch only without paint of my patent pending apron covers. this one i made for this great game iron maiden and im working on 100 designs for other machines i also made one for indiana jones. and working on munsters, bsd, potc (jjp) and more machines (i also got license for few top games).
this is only a prototype. The middle line in the steps is for perspective only and i need to make few changes like to finish the plunger area to make something very cool there and to add more texture to the stairs bricks and to make them look like broken in few areas but its will be awesome! and after paint its will be just perfect
this item is mezel mods exclusive item!!!! check them out for more info soon!
[quoted image]
btw this will be a 3d art. for more info you can check my other mods and threads

Finally ! I've been saying this for a while now for Iron Maiden and BSD!!!

Plastics Protectors?
Please recommend a source for a set of plastics protectors. My last set - for another title - came from Pinbits and they were fine/complete, but they don't seem to make a set for IMDN. I found just one set - an abbreviated one from Pinball Life. Is this all owners have found? I would rather have a more complete set. Does one exist?
[quoted image]

I think little shop of games has a set.

#4655 2 years ago
Quoted from MikeS:

Decided to play around with my upper flipper alignment to see if I could find a solution that didn't involve having to leave the flipper rubber off completely which could leave that flipper vulnerable to cracking. My flipper was previously centered on the alignment hole but I moved it forward about a cm. The results aren't as dramatic as with the rubber removed but it is much easier to hit the super jackpot shot now. Loops are slightly easier to hit than before and the lower loops shot is more open now. Overall it's a nice improvement from before. Not as dramatic of an improvement as with the rubber removed but a nice compromise.[quoted image]

So speaking of flipper alignment...does anyone think the lower flippers are too low? I'm sure thats what they had in mind when designing this game but, if you compare where they sit with other games, they sit lower. Would it be considered cheating if they were raised a tad?

#4824 2 years ago
Quoted from Supersquid:

My ball launch has been pretty much 100%. Lately it hits the post sleeve about 5-10% of the time. Looked and noticed that the end of the guide was dinged a little, so figured this was the problem and went to take it off to file it smooth again. Low and behold when I took it off, I noticed the anchor stud that is riveted on to it was broken. That might cause an issue. Emailed Stern and waiting to hear back. Here are a couple picks of it. One with the rough edge and one with the broken piece. Kinda weird.[quoted image][quoted image]

Does your game have a lot of plays? That's a serious ball trail you got there.
Either way...hope Stern comes through !

Zip tie on the back foot is the factory way. But you need the ball trap clear plastic fix installed first. Some pros did not have it installed and you need to request it if you didn't get one.

I got the plastic from stern as mine didn't have it. Mine doesn't have a hole for a zip tie. Also the only place it actually mounts is to the pop bumper. The ends are just floating spacers. Is this correct ?

Happy to post that my Iron Maiden Premium arrived today, born on January 22nd, 2020, looks amazing. The one unusual things is that it came with purple powder coated legs. Is this normal? The pictures I see on the Stern website, the legs look black...or has Stern changed the color of the legs in this latest run?[quoted image]

Another question is why do you have those ugly and ridiculous so called protectors on there? It should have come with hidden stand offs.

They came with the package...the local distributor added them as a "thank you" for your business gift along with sleeve of silver jet balls. They don't look that bad...at least I hope they don't

Speaking about the artwork. I have not owned a new Stern machine since The Walking Dead. Sterns artwork has always been kind of bland and cut and paste. I picked up an Iron Maiden and wow the artwork is just stunning. I can't believe the Drastic change in art from that time period to now

Quoted from Mancave:

I remember someone posting about the robot Eddie's guns sagging, from memory cause they are close to a light source. I don't recall the piece of mind Eddie sagging though.

Yeah that was me. " hunch back Eddie"
I purchased one of these for my pro from pinball life. I thought something looked off. They compared this to the others they had in stock and said they were all like that . Way to go stern!
I ended up getting a proper standing one from another Pinside member.

Quoted from Rik_:

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 like how you have your side blades covering the edges.I was going to get that design but with just all stone. Ended up with the hieroglyphics instead .

Happened to me as well. Once everything is leveled, adjust the guide at the end of the shooter lane. Solved the problem for me.

Which way did you tweek it?

Quoted from metallik:

To each their own.. I never cared for these gimmick modes. If you're in a good game and it suddenly triggers because the clock was wrong (which they usually are), you now have midnight madness points contaminating your otherwise good game. On DH you could get hundreds of millions from that stupid thing. Not putting my initials up for a score helped by a broken clock and free multiball. If they come back, please make them disable-able.

Interesting ... Never thought of it that way

Got the chance to play a couple of games with 1.08
Awesome Stuff !
Takes the game to another level !
Loving the new animations, light shows, enhanced sound effects and fun new call outs.
Best Christmas present ever !
Thanks to all involved for this most amazing update.
Oh and the new Graphic EQ is pretty cool as well.[quoted image]

Where do I find the EQ? (Pro version)

#7957 10 months ago

Something I don't like after the update is when hitting your shots in aces high multiball, the sound of machine guns going off is no longer there. Hearing this actually helped me complete it.

Which USB port do I put the thumb drive in for the update? I notice there are 2 side by side behind the backglass. Thanks...

Right side

Was able to sneak a few games in this am. Went To utilities to access the new equalizer but couldn't find it. This is on pro editions as well?

Quoted from Kkoss24:

Thanks ,I could swear the first night I didn’t hear the fighter guns but I just played a quick game. last night it was there so I must’ve got confused with something else .Thanks bud great job with this code took it over the top .Me and my kids are basically learning how to really play pinball on IMDN .I call it Pinball U at home because that’s what it is a University for playing pinball .

Glad it wasn't just me because I thought the same thing! although there are still somethings I like better from 1.06.

#8009 10 months ago
Quoted from skink91:

Like what for example?

I may be one of the few according to the responses here but I don't care that much for the new Flight of Icarus/ Revive animations. Let the down votes begin !

#8020 9 months ago

Is it possible to go back to a previous code after installing the new ?

#8025 9 months ago
Quoted from gunstarhero:

Why would you want to do that?

I like the new light show in the latest code but I just don't care that much for the new revive and flight of Icarus animations. I'll put some more games on it next weekend and decide from there.

Is it just me or does the shaker feel more aggressive with the new code? Meaning when it enguages not how often( which is a setting )

Quoted from Kkoss24:

I’m coming up to a year in this hobby. I now have 3 pins and IMDN is my precious .I have had big scores but for the life of me I cannot play a controlled game I still just want to flip on the fly .I completly understand the code now and know what to do .I somewhat got the nudging down but for the life of me cannot play control pinball .I have a brain block with cradling and playing precision pinball especially during multi balls when the ball save expires .I just can’t break through I have no idea what it is .Any help with this would be greatly appreciated .As always ...UP THE IRONS!!

Interesting...I think IDMN is one of the easiest games for me( from my collection)
To slow down and control. Keep in mind though my scores aren't the greatest. Go figure.

I checked all the bags, no luck. Cyborg is gone too, Ill probobly order the prem/le items.
I agree on the de-modding, some stuff I like but there are other items that just dont do it for me.
I pulled the clothed figures and guitar off the game and stored them for the next owner, (if I ever sell it which is unlikely)

Just be aware of the "hunch back Eddie"
For the pop bumpers from pinball life.

Quoted from djreddog:

All of Stern's newer games have coils that over heat after continuous play. Anything between 30 minutes to 1 hour and the coils start producing less power, thus making ramps harder to hit, etc. Install the fans and never have this problem.

How bout they just make better coils? never heard of this or noticed a difference. If so... What a joke stern!
