Anyone know how to disassemble the knight? Have major issues with fail getting stuck on ramp and notice the entire knight assembly is very loose. I see no way of getting to the screws without taking the night apart.

Video (ignore the test shims on right side): https://www.veed.io/view/fed06848-8d6b-4ec2-ade9-8e4ba189c888?sharingWidget=true

Also added a pic of a very loose bolt behind the assembly (not sure if this one is playing a part in the issue as well, or not)

I haven't looked myself, but I would bet there is an exploded view in the manual. You can grab that from Stern's site under support section, I believe.

I recall others have had this - try below

Quoted from Fytr:

No, the problem was caused by the large nuts holding the whole knight assembly coming loose, which allowed the knight to dip left causing the flail to start hitting the ramp.
I applied blue locktite and re-tightened the knight down, problem solved.
Also, the scuff marks on the ramp are not super noticeable and have grown on me, kind of give the flail more gravitas to see the damage it can inflict!

Anyone know if the LE cabinet art is available as a file somewhere? I wanted to make a customer insider connected instruction card and the Knight pointing his sword while on the horse would be perfect. Can't find any straight on shots to use, so far. Premium cab side would work too, but again, can't find any good files/pics.

#4755 55 days ago

Been playing with the Stern alt soundtrack. I really dig it. Makes the game feel like you're on a quest more than the metal soundtrack does. Got to the Black Castle the other night, but didn't beat the Black Knight. I hit the 3 lit shots and drained on the 3rd, as the whole playfield lit up purple to do more damage to him, I assume. The insider connected gave me the achievement for defeating the knight, even though I don't think I did. Had only been to the knight once before, on a non insider connected game and did not get very far, then, either....one more game.

Just found what I think may be a bug.

Logged into IC in case it matters.

Chose the Ransom Challenge mode.

Played the mode to completion with like 46 mil.

Expected to get the enter initials screen since it was the highest I've done the few times I've played it.

The game went into regular game mode with my 46 mil already there and was in ball 2.

I went ahead and played the game out to see what would happen.

Ended up at 226 mil or so and the game awarded me Ransom Champion with the full game score, not my 46.

Pretty sure that's a bug. Not sure if it has been reported.

You might want to report this, because I'm not running into this bug on the Pro model. This may just be isolated to the LE model only.

I'm on a pro, as well. I'll report it. Haven't tried to reproduce it, yet.

#4759 54 days ago

I ran into the crash/freeze bug when having IC connected and found what's causing it.

The fix is to turn off the Reset adjustment (which is on by default) in the SPI Adjustments. This feature doesn't suppose to be on when Free Play is turned on.

I joined the knighthood. Will be adding a shaker motor this weekend. What is everyone using for flipper rubbers and what is your flipper power set to?

Is there a plastic protector available for the super skinny fragile plastic that wraps around the right side shield VUK? I can see that snapping at some point. I don't see it in any of the sets folks are selling. I use clear lexan washers for slings and stuff, but would buy a custom cut piece for that VUK plastic.

Mine was snapped when I got it. Definitely a fragile piece.

Mine is good, so far. This game has almost 6000 plays on it and looks fantastic. I'll be installing my Cliffy saucer protectors soon. Waiting for my Nov Sword to arrive since I'll be working in that area and don't wanna dismantle the game multiple times. While I'm on the right saucer side, I'll see if there's any room for something or maybe trace that plastic and send to Cliff to see if he can make a metal protector. I don't think that plastic lights up, right?

Does anyone know the part number for the hex spacer/post above the upper playfield flipper? It broke off and I need to order another but I am completely lost.

Thank you but it doesn't look like it's identified. I went through the manual to look for the part. Here is the post I am looking at. Maybe I am just blind lol

Quoted from Aniraf:

I made a horrible mistake :/. I removed my upper play field to install a protector and upon reinstalling I broke one of the metal posts used to secure it . It seems that these posts are really soft aluminum and with barely any force it was able to sheer off the entire thread portion into the female post you screw into.
Does anyone know what posts are being used for the male and female versions? I can’t get to the female version right now because it is too hard to hold the upper play field while unscrewing it.[quoted image][quoted image]

I just broke one of these. Do you know what part number this was by any chance? Thank you!

That would be cool. I don’t think it lights up either. Now to find a replacement plastic…

Finally beat the black knight when logged into Insider connected. Was kind of dramatic though. Last ball, last shot to beat him. Hit the shot but ball drains sdtm... I scream, but then see the achievement pop up that I beat him. So I guess we killed eachother at the same time.....

That's what happened to me. I wasn't sure if I actually beat him or not since it seemed like there was more happening and I did not reach RAGE wizard mode.

Just joined the club with a pro model and I love this game but mine seems to have a weird issue on the right side. When the ball is rolling down the right orbit it hits the top slingshot post and bounces into middle of playfield instead of going to the flipper most times. Is this normal or do I need to start adjusting things?

Mine seems that way as well. Giving the cab a smack as it is on that right rail helps it to the flipper. My game is steep and level.

GI flaking out / flail & shield optos quitting.

Howdy, I have a BKSOR on route and yesterday I got a call saying the GI was going out sporadically and the shield would not lift to allow ball in, as well as the flail not working. I browsed the forums, and it appears others have had similar issues. However, I never got a concrete answer on what the solution is/was...has there been any word from Stern on what exactly is causing this? I suppose those of you who have gone through it will know right away, but I don't see it being a widespread issue.

Anyone got any advice? I'm heading up to grab it tomorrow, and hope to have more info on what I'm about to deal with...

Thanks in advance.

Mine was a while back and I forget the exact details but I’m sure I posted it here. Soon after I got I NiB, my upper red GI would cut and it would show an error and I had some issue with the shield not working correctly. I swear it never impacted my flail tho.

After trouble shooting and swapping mode boards nothing helped.

Finally stern sent me a bag of all new GI bulbs and I went through the pain of replacing every one of them. Bingo, that fixed it. Some bad or failed bulb was basically causing a mini short or something.

Anyone know how to remove the front part of the knight, the rubber on the left side of the bash target is missing. I tried removing the front 2 screws but the top platform wouldn't move still. Thanks!

Just unscrew those front two screws and you should be able to shimmy the rubber in there

I may be joining the club next week with a rather nice LE. Quite honestly one of the super-awesome things about getting a new machine is marking a new owners club topic in my favorites!

I'll be having a good read through the topic, but would be nice to know if there's any obvious things to look out for or possibly tweak with this one?

There aren't many key posts that have been marked, which makes me think that this one has been relatively issue free!?

#4788 16 days ago

It honestly is pretty easy peasy. Plus when pinside made it mods only for key posts nobody does it anymore.

Can anyone chime in on the current price of a NIB Black Knight topper? I just picked up a Pro and want to add one. I know they are pricey, and I'm good with that... just need to figure out if $2K is fair? I see one in the marketplace for $2600.

Also, I know these were much cheaper when new.. don't care about that, I've been on both sides of the topper market and understand there's a price to pay. Just trying to figure out fair market and be done with it.

Besides, this is THE best topper in pinball and a must have!

In my searches, you'd be lucky to find one at $2K right now. Just reality. These toppers are HOT HOT HOT.

Had my SOR for a while now.. contemplated moving it along, but really glad I did not, as I've been into it a bit more than ever now... seems like forever since I could input my name in the machine.

Feeling that going for mode shot value has to be the best strat on a prem... esp. early on, with 2x power, with the loop shot dialed in, coming out with ~140m modes is a great rush, especially since you're cutting it to the wire to get those last few hits in as the timer is almost up...

Had a 160m Super Catapult Jackpot shot come up on a really long multiball..., thought I might have had a chance to knock my son off.. but no dice :/

Hooray I'm now an honourable knight! Arrived yesterday, and I couldn't be happier with it. Actually have no space for it at the moment, so it has to go into the bar area for now while I wait for Star Trek to be picked up (bit sad to see that one go). My topper knight seems to be missing his feather plume but that's easily fixable.

Only played about 20 or so games so far, and it's still on v1.01 code - so will be updating today and playing a lot more. Also totally coincidental I know but 2 very weird things happened:

1) As I was texting a friend about the machine, I must have bumped one of the flipper buttons and the BK shouted at me "STOP PLAYING WITH YOUR PHONE"!!! I almost soiled myself...
2) About 30 minutes later I was framing a nice shot of my Stern whisky glass sat on the machine - again, pressed the flipper button and what did Mr BK shout at me? "KEEP YOUR DRINKS OFF THE GLASS PUNKS"!!!

I started to get very scared...
