Update now. Changes the game for the better.

#1052 40 days ago
Quoted from hank35:

Running .97. Is it worth updating to the latest code or should I wait for the next update?
Better callouts? Besides the easier game settings, I just need to know if this is worth updating now.

Update it's totally worth it life changing.

I think it is much better than the older one.

#1054 39 days ago

Just realized my ball 1 lock light doesnt work on the catapult lock. Checked the connector and thats good. It was out of the box like that, i just never noticed since it had a red light reflecting from the board. Anything else i should check? Emailed distributor already. Im assuming it is surface mount so nothing i can fix on the board itself

#1055 39 days ago

Just picked up a Pro yesterday and absolutely love it. My one gripe though is the speakers don't sound all that great. I have to turn down the volume otherwise they sound very crackly. I saw a few people mention speaker upgrades but not finding any online. Any recommendations out there?

#1056 39 days ago
Quoted from Metroshica:

Hämtade precis en Pro igår och älskar det absolut. Min enda grepp är att högtalarna låter inte så bra. Jag måste sänka volymen annars låter de väldigt knäckt. Jag såg några få nämna högtalareuppgraderingar men inte hittade någon online. Några rekommendationer där ute?

Here's how I did

Quoted from Jesder:

Have you tried adjusting the Speech Attenuation setting? I found the speech was too high myself and have ended up adjusting both the speech and music settings to:
Music Attenuation : -7
Speech Attenuation : 6
(Larger number brings it down and the negative number brings it up).

worked great for me too, no more crackling!

#1058 38 days ago

I did the same thing but not for any crackling, I play my pins loud and never heard any of that but for the call outs which are getting worse each update. Speech att : +30
Music att : - 30

very happy now.

#1059 38 days ago

Is it true the upper playfield now spots shots for modes that are running? I think the stand up target top right, and I think it can award multiple mode shots too (not just one). So my question is, could you conceivably finish off an entire mode by staying upper playfield? Good idea or bad.

Yes, the stand up counts towards your mode shots, and you could complete the whole mode there.

I find it easier and faster to complete a mode on the lower playfield, so I don't intentionally go to the upper pf to play a mode. However, I sure take a few shots while I'm up there if I can get 'control' of the ball.

#1061 38 days ago

2 shots from starting black castle. Ugghhh so close and havent made it yet!

#1062 38 days ago
Quoted from amkoepfer:

2 shots from starting black castle. Ugghhh so close and havent made it yet!

Not as bad as 2 shots from finishing black castle. I've done that twice. About halfway through, I start to freeze up.

#1063 38 days ago

I havent even looked at the rules for black castle yet. Got lucky this game, first time ive completed all 5 modes

#1064 38 days ago

Well it's pretty self-explanatory - "shoot the blinky lights!" They are purple for BC.

BC is the only animation I don't flip through. I figured I earned it, and it gives me few seconds to relax. I haven't watched the spoiler video above, as I want to earn that too.

Lol. Ya, shoot the blinky things is usually a good bet. I havent watched it either. I want to earn it

Sorry, what exactly did you do here? Just looks like you unscrewed the speakers.

I'll try the volume attenuation tonight and see if that helps.

#1067 38 days ago

It looks like in his picture he 3-D printed some smaller mounting brackets . The speakers pictured below are the exact ones that they use in the LE model you have to get adapter plates which you can get through Pinball life to make them fit or you can 3-D print them yourself. That way you can use the premium speakers in the pro models

Just joined the club today and very happy!! Traded my MB remake CE for a BK pro with only 280 plays. Two great pins but two totally different pinballs. BK reminds me a lot of my former Ironman in a good way!! Already ordered flipper fidelity speakers, plastic protectors, flipper covers with sword from hooked and the flail mod from Mezel mods. Next up mirror blades and a who’s knows what.

Game is fast, fun, and great light show like sterns Star Trek, but with more testosterone.

#1069 37 days ago

Shaker is a must. Great playing machine in all versions.

#1070 37 days ago
Quoted from HOOKED:

Shaker is a must.

Not if you have upgraded to a top-of-line subwoofer.

#1071 37 days ago
Quoted from Metroshica:

Ledsen, vad gjorde du exakt här? Ser ut som om du skruvade loss högtalarna.
Jag ska prova volymdämpningen ikväll och se om det hjälper.

I put JBL speakers in all my new pinball games. My friend helped me make speaker frames in 3d printer.

Made it to the Black Castle for the third time last night. Such a rush, and I love the intro animation. Every other game should take note on how to make a wizard mode feel special! But...I again failed to slay the Knight, so still no Rage for me. Anyone know how many hits it takes? I didn't get too many in this time, but last time I got there it seemed like I was battling him forever with no end in sight. Is there a stamina meter or anything I should be watching? I didn't notice one, but also couldn't really look up much.

Damn I love this game!

Got my NIB PRO LAST NIGHT...

Got the lights also. A must have mod for every Black Knight.! You should have gotten the acrylics.

#1077 36 days ago
Quoted from John_I:

Yes. It is easier to install them when the game is not in the lineup, so while I had it out I went ahead and threw them in. Super simple, 8 minute install with a single tool. Painless and easy. Need to update the code, still on 0.94, yikes! Haha

#1078 35 days ago

BKSOR has to be one of the coolest translites, so thought I share a few pics. I played the LE the other day and such a great game.

Quoted from John_I:

Had a party last weekend and got nothing but positive comments on the LE speaker lighting kit. They look awesome!!!

No offense, but do you think guests at your party are going to tell you they suck or don't like them though? . And I'm not saying I don't like them, just that guest opinions are usually skewed on things out of courtesy.

That skews both ways. I have a couple of friends who basically don't like any mod and will certainly speak up at every opportunity.

In this case even the most hardened anti mod, anti clown puke, anti LED curmudgeon will most likely have to admit that this mod looks cool.

#1084 34 days ago

I have four LE aprons that are powder coated to match with gold flakes as shown. Kit comes with apron and center apron drain lighting. $210 plus shipping world.wide.
We have 4 and that's it. First is the before then after. The flasher location has been moved outward but no factory wiring have been altered. Also pictured are our flipper bats. This mod is for LE owners only. PM me for info.

#1085 34 days ago

Sure would be nice if someone made stickers to replace the seizure warning with some cool artwork. I managed to get a full decal set for Metallica and it included a few apron decals with artwork instead of the warning.

#1088 34 days ago

I changed all of the GI bulbs to warm white, because I thought the red really hid a lot of the art, and the cool white didn't look "Black Knighty" enough.

If I could make a BKSOR wish, I would ask Tim to code a "Warmer Colors" mode that made RAGE and WAR look more warm like the original Black Knight and Black Knight 2000 colors. KNIGHT is cool as it is.

Anyway, here's what it looks like with Titan Warm Whites. If you were considering it, and you hated it, you can thank me for saving you some time.

So much better, it's not even close.

Did the same on my IMDN. I wish Stern would hire a light designer with a clue...

Indeed. I did the same on my TWD. I don't get the constant cool white GI on every game, especially on games with warm tone artwork.

#1091 34 days ago

Has anyone installed the interactive LED back box light mods to any of their Black Knight pins and or posted a video of them? I had Cointaker's deluxe interactive LED backbox one on my Iron Man and thought it was perfect how the flashers worked with the game. Was curious how the interactive back box kits react on this particular pin.

Can you post a picture of the "whole" playfield?

#1093 33 days ago

Suggestions for next code update???? I have a couple:
Don't kill the GI in when mystery is awarded in multi-ball (or any other time balls are in play).
The flames in the back don't work if the insert brightness is set below 100%.
Upper playfield target is too strong during modes (too easy to bash it and defeat monsters). Maybe require a loop to qualify a hit?
Allow a grace period for multi-ball end (when hitting the 3rd lock for triple knights challenge while draining in catapult multi-ball).
The Black Knight goes "nice" too fast, currently after 2 monsters defeats. This should happen after maybe 4 defeats imo.
Really fun, addictive game. Other code thoughts?

#1094 33 days ago

Just installed Flipper Fidelity’s Meaty Beaty Big and Bassy 10”3-way Speaker System in my Pro. Wow!!!! Clarity and sound impact is greatly improved! This speaker package is amazing and I personally think this is way better than their normal, more expensive 10” bass speaker kit I had put in my Walking Dead. Gonna be messing around with the sound levels to make it perfect to my liking. This pin has such an adrenaline filled soundtrack, I didn’t know what I was missing until I put these speakers in.

Quoted from DrJoe:

Wow - thanks for posting this. I thought my flame panel was defective!

I updated my code to 1.0 awhile back and noticed the flames weren't working properly anymore, just flashing on and off. I didn't make the connection between setting my insert brightness <100%. I will try restoring this setting to 100% and see if it fixes it for now.

Nice catch!

#1096 33 days ago
Quoted from Robertstone0407:

Anyone else noticed the right flipper getting weak on the LE and premium

Ours in league is terrible. It's weak to begin with and gets worse as the night goes on.

Did you have any luck nailing down your issue?

Did those spacers come with the backbox speakers? Did you order them directly from Flipper Fidelity?

Yes, the spacers came with the speaker kit along with all wiring harnesses and anti rattle tape as needed. There is an option block to check if you have speaker lights when ordering. And yes I ordered them directly from flipper fidelity. Fast shipping for sure.

I got a set in mine too and love em! Noticed right away the distortion at factory settings was gone. Haven’t found an optimal setting yet but the cab speaker doesn’t seem to like going over +6.93db w/ the speech @ factory settings... I feel like it’s the breakpoint on speech distortion. The 3 way cab speaker is where it’s at, especially with THIS soundtrack!

Thanks for the info. If FF is now using spacers that are not attached directly to the speakers, it would seem there is really no need to even ask if anyone is using speaker lights or not. If you are using speaker lights, you probably will not need to use the spacers. If you are not using speaker lights, you probably will have to use the spacers. Pretty simple and straight forward and much easier than having to wonder, deal with or remove the attached spacer rings that are sometimes on aftermarket speakers. Especially if someone decides to go from not using to using speaker lights or vice versa.

Thanks again for your reply,
