Took a look at my LE but could not find plastic #37?

#2952 5 days ago

I found the same plastic in my premium that came out during gameplay. I searched all over the playfield and can’t find it either.

#2953 5 days ago

The family is still sleeping so I couldn't turn the games on to get a better picture. Sorry about that.

That plastic goes under the elevated shooter lane. Mine fell off too about ten games in out of the box.

Hope this helps.

That same piece fell off of mine last night, two small black screws hold it into place without nuts, jeez I wonder why it fell off. I was only able to locate one of the screws unfortunately.

#2955 5 days ago

^^^^^^ Mine came loose but never fell out. I Just put Loctite on it haven't had a problem since.

#2956 5 days ago

Thanks for the tips. I am going to put a playfield protector on it, so when I take it apart I am guessing I will see what they go to. I absolutely love this game. I am not mad at Stern. It just is a letdown. This is my new favorite Stern. It is a blast to shoot and play. I dont why the hate or lack of interest comes from? The distributor has a few les in stock and that suprised me. I bought it. I even found a topper from another distributor and it is on its way. I loved original black knight so that pushed me into this game heavy. Not disappointed. I will never sell or trade it. I will post pictures of the missing part locations if I find them. Again thanks for the tips.

Quoted from Mathazar:

Found this #-37 plastic in the shooter lane of my Premium this evening, wedged between the right rail and the ramp. I've got no idea where this goes - I've eyeballed the game a half dozen times and don't see anything missing, and the otherwise-really-nice manual doesn't have a layout guide for the plastic pieces (yet my older Star Trek Pro manual has a plastics layout guide, go figure).
Anyone know where this goes? Wherever it goes, I likely have 2 screws missing as well as there's no evidence that this piece has broken off of anything. [quoted image]

How difficult was it to replace the decals on your other machine?

#2958 4 days ago

Heat gun and they come right off. Clean off glue residue and makes sure the wood is spotless clean or it will show up under decal. Dirt or lint.

#2959 4 days ago

Sorry misread post. Ignore that. My bad. I thought it was about body decals.

#2960 4 days ago

Retiring it to the vault?

Not boding well for a code update. Hope I'm wrong.

I don’t think the sales numbers were what Stern expected, so I’m not surprised it’s getting shelved. However, I love the game. It’s a System 11 on steroids with code depth that matches the layout and ball times. Certainly the code can be so much better, but the art, LCD and tunes makes the game super fun.

Oh, and it has the best topper ever!

#2962 4 days ago

Anybody have a line on custom cards? I know there where a few out there, can’t find them now....

#2963 4 days ago

C’mon, Tim - how about at least one more code update before the game is shelved?!

#2964 4 days ago

Well... just ordered a Premium on Saturday; just in time, I guess

Looking forward to be joining the club!

right now without a pin home and a freeplace to fill, if this happends in the next few days, than i'll be in the club !

#2967 3 days ago

I was really excited to see an email this morning from Stern with "Black Knight" in the title. A code update? More toppers shipping? Oh...

I'm disappointed to see the game being retired so soon. Not just for us owners who are hanging out for fixes to the 1.01 code, but also the team who worked on it.

It's not a big surprise though as my impression is that sales have unfortunately been average. Which is a real shame as the game has so much going for it when you look at the art, animations, sounds & call outs. Add on the best topper of all time and you're immersed in the world of The Black Knight. In my view, the code is where it trips up and hasn't been able / allowed to grow and flourish.

#2968 3 days ago

My topper is getting close now. Just have to get it from one side of the country to other thanks to fact for whatever reason USPS stuff is now landing there instead of Sydney . I have feeling based on another recent delivery it might turn up next week

Did it land in Perth? Hoping you have more luck than me.

I had a USPS parcel from Titan arrive at Perth on Aug 4th. Then on Aug 26th it went to New Zealand before showing up in NSW on Sept 12 and now finally in Melbourne on Sept 15th.

Yeah landed Perth on 13th. Assuming from a similar situation with another USPS shipment that landed in Perth on the 5th Sept, it will turn up some time next week all things being equal. Not that I'm anywhere near as confident as I used to be with postal deliveries right now.

If anyone is looking for topper the Game exchange in Colorado had the topper in stock!I got it today. I dont get the games lack of interest? It plays great and has fantastic touches in art and music. The throw back mode is amazing and its a fun game to play. Absolutely love this game.

Remember, the frames are sized to accept the standard Stern cards. The card slides into the slots on the top and bottom edge.

I didn't see any. You have a link.

#2975 1 day ago

My premium arrived on Tuesday and I absolutely love it! Topper, shaker, new code, and Powerbladez installed today. My first NIB Stern that followed Monster Bash Remake SE that I bought 3 weeks ago. No regrets at all with either machine. Eying possibly JP premium next. Not sure. Wish I could find MMr. Late to pinball collecting. Started a year ago . Nine pins in the collection now.

When I ordered it they still showed them in stock. It looks like they are now out of stock now. Google the part number for topper shown on my invoice. Thats how I found it online. Looks like I got lucky.

Quoted from RipleYYY:

second time i went to a location near our house to play BK PRO (mainly, and a few games on STh, which really is not for me)
i really enjoy playing it like this, on the wild, and not sure it will be the same if i get it home !? as let's admit its very repetitive, and also mainly using right flipper only
but OK, the fact is that i enjoyed my afternoon a lot, its a true adrenaline pin, theme is very nice (if you're a '80 boy), you sweat for sure while you're playing this
about the code, and as a "player", think i have to say the same as lots of guys here : surelly this needs some minor adjustements (Tim if you're reading, tanx)
KNIGHT letters not easy to get (only reached 1 time NIGHT mode level 2 ), and didnt fully beat the BK as getting there 2 times on the afternoon...
if this pin could get an update, than may be i'll think to buy one
here's what i left to the others (lol), MIC is my tag...

last day of my vacation, than decided to spend some houres on that BK again...
same as before, i've enjoyed it for sure, but than there's really something that can/should/could be done with the code, that black castle is so frustrating again (but not in the way you wanna get there again)
compare to all others modes, which are OK, completing the wizard mode seems more to be a matter of luck than of skill !? of course you will say : "well, we are battling against the black knight !!!"

i've than scored 1.5B, reaching 2 times the BC in the same game (also got 3 knight modes) :
1st time i lose at 3rd shot, with the middle target sending ball back at 300MPH SDTM...
2nd time, gone to 5 ou 6 shots, than right slingshot send a great airball perfectly in the left outlane !!! oh dear, did i really deserve that ? (lol)

Tim, are you reading ? (said friendly of course)
