Quoted from MacJedi:

Hey there, what is your Twitch channel name? Would love to see the stream!

It's MoonbeamArcade. Usually me and my friend Amber stream retro video games (me solo on Wednesdays and Thursdays, and us jointly on Fridays and Sundays) but I've been experimenting with the occasional pinball stream to see if there is any interest. I'll be streaming it today (Wednesday) at 1pm pacific time. I'm not the best pinballer but hey, I figure it'll be fun playing it live regardless! Hope to see you there.

Quoted from HemiOrange09:

I just received a Black Knight Pro that I am taking to the Pinball at the Zoo show in a few days... Of coarse I set it up and played it before the show. I could not wait to see it in person, because I have loved the Black Knight as a kid. Anyways I just could not leave it stock and I came up with a cool lighting effect for the center ramp lightning bolts, similar to the Premium and LE machines. I know that I will also be adding more items to this machine and powder coating as well.
Here are a few videos of this upgrade for the Pros only. It is very easily installed and plugs into the machine for power. If you would like one let me know and I can offer them on my website.
Thanks,

That’s awesome! This much closer to being okay with a pro!

I'll probably offer this lighting kit in red or white for $25.00 plus shipping. I can also do it in a sequence lighting from entry to exit and same colors. I just need to order different parts.

Very nice, nice work!

Followed the Dead Flip stream and took a chance (having not played it) based on my instant love of the flow and artwork... and oh yeah, the flailing Knight. Ordered a Pro which was delivered today. Wow. Did not disappoint in the least.

Mezelmods picking the pro up this morning. I will be playing this afternoon after Kristin and Jared set it up. I don’t miss putting the games together anymore.

Congrats...I am jealous! Been trying to talk myself into selling/trading something from my collection, but I'm pretty attached to all of them at the moment. He will pillage his way into my basement at some point though!

Can't wait to see what kind of goodies you guys come up with to dress him up a bit!

Lyons Classic Pinball got our BKsor Pro yesterday! Fast and fun!(just my opinion). We will be bringing our original Black Knight with new playfield in within a few weeks to put next to the new one. Come Play!

#110 1 year ago

Cactus Jacks in Oklahoma City. Pro model. I really liked it. It’s a butt-kicker!!! Double thumbs up for the knight on the playfield.

#111 1 year ago

Still deciding, to buy BK or not. I played a pro yesterday on location here in Germany and I have to say I like It. Mr.Knight himself is a brutal heartless asshole. But I think I can get used to it. I am daily fighting against my Ghostbusters so I think I can stand that
I have seen DeadFlips stream and I think Pro is the way to go? I have Ghostbusters Pro also and like it.

#112 1 year ago

I had the chance to play a pro and a premium at PATZ this weekend (and all the other latest Sterns). Wow, both were really fun and Ritchie fast! I was pleasantly surprised by the animations on the display, too. I really, really liked that upper playfield on the premium. Usually, I'm content with Pro models, but I think I would miss that upper playfield on this one.

I can't say that I like the MagnasSave though (on any of the BK pins). I am just not fast enough to hit that damn button when I need to. By the time my brain processes whether or not I need to hit it, it's already too late, argh!

#113 1 year ago

Having a tech issue with the shield:

When raised, it doesn’t raise high enough and the ball grazes it (but makes it past). It is starting to chip away at the shield point every so slightly.

Anyone else have this? The mech doesn’t have any obvious adjustment points, unfortunately.

#114 1 year ago

I was going to check out the mech, send like there should be an adjustment one way or another but I couldn't find a manual on stern's site (I am on mobile though so could be something wonky). Maybe just some screws that hold it to the bottom of the playfield need to be tightened or something?

Testing lights for the ramp on Pro model.

Take a dremel and cut those speaker grills. No idea why they have a grill behind a grill

#118 1 year ago

Just received mine for the weekend. Little gameplay from Germany

#119 1 year ago

Rgb matching the insert? You'll sell 1000 of these.

#120 1 year ago
Quoted from Robertstone0407:

I was going to remove them but it kind of looks like the gate below with the led fire.

Going to leave them for now maybe later. I was also thinking of a shield to insert that another day.

#121 1 year ago

Had friends over this past weekend and couldn't get them off it. So glad I took the chance without having seen it. Friggin love it. (Pro) Thinking about it? Go for it!

#122 1 year ago

Crickey how do some of y'all get such good scores! I'm just past 100 games and my best is still around 36 million

#123 1 year ago

So what do you guys think? Is it a future classic? It looks to be more metal and have more "tude" than Iron Maiden itself.

Did not care for IronM, love the band and music but the pin felt meh, also due to it being based on the mobile game. I've only played 20 credits or so on it.

Haven't had the opportunity to test BKSOR yet.

Quoted from Reality_Studio:

I haven’t figured out scoring totally yet, but I like to sit on two ball locks until I have a at least one super feature going, and I like to have a mode lit to start at TKC. As I’m hitting jackpots in triple knights challenge I try and start more super features as they become available. I’m not sure how to get to retro mode, but somehow that seems to be the key for having games that are 100 mil plus. At least for me anyhow...

So I had the knights challenge insert lit once but had a brick power drain and failed. I believe you have to spell knight on the playfield by hitting so many shots in modes and that gets you into the retro mode. I haven't done it yet so maybe someone else can confirm.

I agree, I thought that may have been how to start as well. I thought it gave me a letter for the 2nd consecutive shot on a mode light.. it’s just too hard to play and see how your progressing

You get knight letters by completing major features which include enough shots or finishing a mode. You also get a knight letter every time you make a super jackpot in the main triple knight mode. Once you have spelled knight the retro mode will be lit on the far left spinner feeding the saucer hole.

#129 1 year ago

Anybody else noticing that the super features and the combos do nothing in the code at this time kind of odd

#130 1 year ago
Quoted from musketd:

They don’t increase scoring on that feature?

Also, what happens after you get the 3 hurry ups? You get a knight letter?

Quoted from tilted81:

Yes i think you also get a letter for completing a WAR hurry up but i would have to make sure as i'm not one hundred percent confident on that.

Quoted from Coolpinballdino:

Hopefully completing war will one day build playfield multipliers.

I was going to ask how code was coming along, but it appears much is missing still.

Hmm I tried that and it helped, my new best is 46 million so thanks for that! Definitely need to study the scoring a bit more on this game, figure out what works best.

Check your shield, it seems to be a bit loose?

I’m still hearing more taunts and callouts... very excited to hear there is gonna be EVEN MORE!

#137 1 year ago

Bought a Pro, put it on location Monday night.
Those that know me know I don't buy pro's.
But this one looks like it rocks.

Guys are loving it on location so far.
Fast in your face kind of game to.

I updated to code .93 and only put 3 games on it, but I’m not seeing any_ lights show for skill shot. Patch notes read like they were showing at inappropriate times, not totally... intended?

#139 1 year ago

Love what they did w/ start of retro mode! The taunts are certainly increased throughout gameplay!

#140 1 year ago

Added half-moon metal cabinet protectors and orange LED buttons from Pinball Life. Picture doesn't do it justice, it's a deep orange and blends with the artwork.

Indeed a bit of a crime to drill into a brand new cabinet, but I love the look and durability of the metal protectors.

Just updated my code and skill shot is completely gone now. Is that what you are referring to?

#142 1 year ago
Quoted from Nw55555:

Yes, exactly. It functions identical as it did with the last version, even flipping to switch spots of the hidden shot, just invisible.

Guys hearing any updates on LE ship/delivery times for U.S. ?

Quoted from ATLpb:

I was asked to PIF for an LE yesterday, so I would guess shipping in 2 weeks.

#146 1 year ago

My first new pin. Loving it so far. Noticing a few things and wondering if I am the only one.

When the ball goes through the R in the W A R lanes up top, if it does not have significant speed, it stops at the bottom of the slot cut in the playfield. A slight nudge will dislodge it. Not a huge issue, but it does stop the flow of the game.

When the ball comes down off the right orbit, about 75% of the time it falls into the right slingshot instead of the right flipper.

Anyone else have the same issue?

The knight toy is awesome, but I think it is the call outs and taunts that really make this game great. So glad I have it in the game room where this is the only game playing. I think you will miss a huge part of the game with the sounds being drowned out on location.

#147 1 year ago

Just installed the speaker light kit from DugFreez on my Pro. They are color and motion changing. Right now I have them locked on red and yellow to complement most of the artwork.

Anyway, I just thought they were really cool so I wanted to put a shout out to Doug and his company.

PS - I did not get that Grand Champ score. I had a pinhead party over the weekend and one of my buddies got it. I'm not anywhere close to that!

It is a black plastic case with a glass tube on top. The tube has little black lines and yellow liquid inside with an air bubble.
