I just joined the club! Thank you project pinball.
Got the word from Project pinball today machine ships out Monday or Tuesday, so a week at the most I should have it.
Look what I just picked up. Thank you again "Project Pinball". LE # 89 in the house.
Loving the game so far. One question, I got a piece of mylar with my L E and I don't know where it goes does anybody have an idea? Thank you in advance.
Thanks guys, I see it now. Duh anyway I made my own plastic protector for the plastic on the left hand side above the sling by the 2 stand up . Here are the pics, was a 15 minute fix on my ryobi bandsaw. Then I just added washers to the other plastic piece right there to even them out.
From what I've seen this one is a problem area too so I'm going to make one for this next.
It is 1/8" plexiglass I got it off of eBay. Don't remember what it cost. No flamed edges just cut on my Ryobi bandsaw. Took the plastic off itself made a little mini pattern and cut it on the saw.
I got the other protector made. I went ahead a flamed the edges on both that I made.
Quoted from RockfordReplay:
Ordered one after seeing the post. It arrived today and wow, has some size to it. I don't know if I'll launch from the skull-heads or the tail. The handle is lighter than it looks and appears antique-ish (photos without flash look represent the color well). Fun project for the weekend.[quoted image][quoted image][quoted image]
Looks awesome mine should be here Friday. BTW great screen name.
I got my shooter Rod installed today. Was easier and faster to switch them out rather then retap the hole's.
I have plenty of leftover pieces to make a Topper. I don't think I'm going to wait for 6 months to a year and have to pay $500 for a Stern topper.
I don't know if anyone else has noticed this, the wrong text on page 8 in the Black Knight LE owner's manual
Hi Rich I found it, here are some pictures of the location. I'm glad yours fell out because mine would have fallen out shortly, as it was almost all the way loose. It's under the shooter lane next to plastic #11. Don
I contacted Chas at Stern about the spring on the shooter rod I purchased. They are sending me a replacement silver spring.
Just loaded new code. Thanks to my wife, she just Printed out the instructions and followed them no problems loaded perfect.
Sorry you're having trouble. Like I said we just printed the instructions and followed them worked first time.
Quoted from aeonblack:
I successfully updated and I'm on LE. I followed the steps Stern gives:
1 - Download the zip file
2 - Unzip the file, this will create a folder that contains SPK file(s).
3 - Open folder, copy only the file(s) to the root level of a USB stick. Do
not copy the folder.
4 - Power game off
5 - Insert USB stick
6 - Turn on game
7 - After game boots up it will give the option for software update
8 - Volume buttons change options for full or quick update. Enter selects the
option and starts the update.
9 - Once update is completed game will prompt user to power game off and
remove USB stick.
Quoted from John_I:
I got my upper playfield enhancement kit yesterday from Pinball Life and it has the original plastic in it without the additional hole for the new post. Oh well. Email sent to Pinball Life to see what the story is.
Here's a picture of mine. I just drilled a new hole in the old one. I'm just going to keep the new one as a spare, I measured it and it's 7/16 of an inch over and 1/8 of an inch up on that left corner. Drill bit size is 5/32".
Quoted from Jared:
BKSOR LE #425 Has landed in Rockwall Texas! Super Proud of Steve and Tim on this one!!! Awesome!!!!! Also thanks to dugfreez for the RAD light rings!!![quoted image][quoted image][quoted image][quoted image][quoted image][quoted image][quoted image]
Got the lights also. A must have mod for every Black Knight.! You should have gotten the acrylics.
Here's a pic of my game, no problems as pictured. Your shooter looks to be a little bit off-center compared to mine? Hope this helps.
Does anyone know what the part # is for this flat bolt in the picture? There are two of them. I snapped one of installing a cliffy. They are very easy to break. Thanks in advance.
I just installed these flipper toppers and pop bumper toppers, That I ordered from Hooked on Pinball.
Quoted from jetmechinnc:
I was debating on getting these. What is your impression? Does it make the game darker or does light shine through at all?? I liked their ones for my former iron man.
Maybe a little darker but that doesn't matter to me. The cool thing is the skulls eyes are knocked out so light shines through them, a pretty cool effect. Light shines around the outside also.
My wife emailed Stern today about the topper. Their response was, it goes into production in two weeks so there you go. She got a response right away, probably because it wasn't playfield related LOL.
