Iron Maiden (LE) Stern 2018


Recommended Posts

Yep,

I believe there is a part # for the new post, don't know it sorry.

 

I guess a bag of them will go out to AMD

 

Expect them to be provided at no charge, since the update will need to be made by the owner

 

Have managed to adjust and loctite my original seems to be okay.

 

Mind you I have not been able to play for over a week due to work and damn flu :(

 

Looks like we may need these too.

As it is a design flaw which would have been rectified on the new runs.

 

Stern should be supplying this at no charge to all first batch original owners.

Thanks Gents. Hopefully AMD will contact the owners once these parts arrive. Ando have you spoken with anyone at AMD to confirm these parts are coming and will be supplied to the owners?

 

Not yet mate,

 

I'm still waiting to 'bed the game in'

 

All new and restored games need a lot of play/tweaking to ensure smooth play.

 

So far with my IMDN LE it had been fine apart from the shit manual and auto launch.

 

The more the game is played the better it will 'bed in"

 

Keep the balls clean, ( no finger oils )

 

I will keep the PF mint with dry micro fibre and a little novus 1 if needed

 

plenty of play and some patience

 

At this time my orb has been okay, so I have not pushed for the new post

 

I can see the advantage of the modified/sharper spoon post.

 

For me at this time not wishing to annoy our distributor.

 

However if the game is not playing right are having trouble, give AMD a call.

 

You paid a lot of coin and the game should be 100%

 

- - - Updated - - -

 

every time the ball exits the shooter lane it hits the lower skill shot (manual or auto plunge). Occasionally it will go up the loop on an auto plunge. Is it just a matter of bending the metal exit of the shooter lane so the ball projects a bit higher ?

 

Edit: on closer inspection, top right flipper is not flush and plunged ball is touching it upon exiting shooter lane.

 

Yeah mine is shit too mate,

 

When I get time i will have a go at this

 

Take off the nut for the wire form on the right slingshot. Then there’s a screw you can get to between the right ramp wire form to that plastic. That should give you enough wiggle room to get at the adjustment screw; if you want more free movement there’s another screw near the top of the ramp thatlll free it more but I didn’t feel the need to take that one off.

Then, Depending on your pitch (I’m at 7.0-7.2) I loosened the adjustment screw and pushed it all the way up with lots of pressure and tightened. If you’re a Lower pitch you may need to find the sweet spot. I then put some slight pressure on the exit guide to slightly bend a hair up. KME also mentioned bending the guides on the left side of the shooter lane inward towards the shooter lane - not sure what this does to be honest, maybe helps the ball from rattling? I did it anyway but just ever so slightly bend so not to damage anything.

Lastly, I set my overall coil power in adjustments to hard. My manual plunge is 99.9% and my auto plunge is 90+%.

Also, FWIW - I found anything over 7.2 deg pitch was just too much inconsistency. One of the guys from stern mentioned in a faceboook stream that the game plays really good at 7deg and I would concur. But even in that stream, you’ll see a lot of inconsistencies with their shooter.

I have found Stern games are very temperamental when it comes to angles. Gb is absolute crap if not set right and that can be a very fine line to achieve. Metallica doesn't have such issues but sounds like imdn needs precise levelling etc. Listen out for what others are seeing their games to for better results

Definitely interested if this product works and fixes the problem with not registering all the loop shots. Shits me to tears when you hit 3 or 4 in a row and only get credit for 1 or 2.

I am loving 1.03 code !

 

Audio is way better ! factory default almost perfect, Thanks Stern Audio team

Mid range is still a little raspy on most tracks through backbox speakers. Edit, I disabled treble filter. Much better :)

Audio is getting close to perfection.

 

Beast LE #86 Dialled in now :)

 

Setting manual and auto launch to make loop is a game changer, so much more fun !

Anyone who has not got perfect auto and manual launch, go for it !

It was a little frustrating and time consuming but well worth it.

Really adds coolness to Trooper MB and Enhances gameplay big time !

 

IMDM = Awesome Pinball fun !!!

Anybody have any suggestions to help with the ball getting stuck at the top right of the centre steel ramp on my im pro? thanks in advance.
AMD has a post fix for this

Remove ramp and plastics drill a hole and put a plastic post with a rubber to stop the ball hanging up.

Major pain in the ass !

I have not bothered and won't until the need to remove ramp.

I put a piece of medium density foam in there for now.

Another design fail !

Yes this is a better fix

 

Sorts out yet another design fail with the opto's !

 

I heard they were out of stock though ?

 

Certainly sucks having to spend another $50 bucks and time to sort out shit that I still cannot believe was picked up by the team, Unbelievable !

My LE plays like a dream... Still thinking about selling it tho.

For some reason I am not gelling with this title.

 

Hoping that'll change.

Man the game is killer !

Constant rush

The key is to dial in the 2 newton balls and auto launch. Set pitch to 7 + degrees

 

I am looking forward to next code updates to sort out Icaris and fine tune some minor issues.

 

Seriously IMDN is worthy of 9.5 out of 10

If code gets final polish and Stern can fix a couple of shit hardware problems

IMDN can be 10/10

Mines dialled in perfectly..

 

Both Newton balls work like a charm and my auto launch always launches the balls right around the loop never hitting the post.

 

Ill stick with it for now...
