I agree definitely, higher scoring! I am a poor player but I have seen Winter Has Come at a more frequent rate then in the past, Love the new call outs which there are a lot. I also like the new mini play field rules and new Castle Multi ball. The mini play field was in the past Ok in my estimation but, now it has become a great asset to the overall game.

What are people finding they like for adjustments on the various light intensity, speech/music and speaker sound settings?

#1502 4 months ago

Ok, ColorDMD fans... LED or LCD?

I checked out the sample videos on http://shop.colordmd.com/led-replacement-display-for-game-of-thrones-pinball-machine/

I couldn't tell a difference between the two examples, in fact, I think it was the SAME video for both LED and LCD.

Can we discuss/ see pics?

Thanks! And love 1.36!!

I love the LED. Easier install and has a stock look/feel to it.

Quoted from Trekkie1978:

2 - is there a setting to put getting a castle back to the old way of just awarding points and not completing a mode?

Upvote! Would love this option. Just as button has a classic or current option, this should too. It lets you significantly increase the difficulty with one setting!

I don't like how bright the LED versions are. LCD is easier on my eyes, plus I run it upscaled (Scan mode) which I think makes the game look more modern.

This will lessen the brightness as well as stop the reflection on the glass.

I have one of these installed with a lcd running in xldots mode I think. I chose the lcd because this game has video clips from the show, not animated dots.

Quoted from Trekkie1978:

1 - did Dwight put in there a way to adjust the power for the ball eject into the shooter lane.

I don’t think so, I didn’t see the option in the menu, but I wasn’t looking for it either and passed it by.

Quoted from Trekkie1978:

Thought I heard you could revert back to old rules, although that might have just been for the action button,and not the castle rewards.

Since nobody has mentioned it for #2, I don't think so. I agree that this would be a good setting for those that want the option of the traditional house mode progression.

#1515 4 months ago

Boom just put up 57 Billion on my GOT no extra balls Lannister all the way.

So is #1 in there now? I looked but could’ve easily missed it. Definitely way to strong by default and eats up the shooter lane.

#1517 4 months ago

I'm thinking about updating to 1.36 on my Game of Thrones Premium, but would like the option of being able to revert back to the older code if possible since the new code seems to have a few initial bugs and might not be 'better' for location and/or tournament play in the long run.

Unfortunately i don't think I have any of the old versions saved anywhere. we tried removing the SD card and plugging it into a SD card reader on a Mac and PC were unsuccessful in being able to extract the old code.

does anyone have an old .SPK for premium they can send me? we've been running 1.29 for awhile since the newer updates don't have any major game play updates and it's been running bug free for 2+ years with heavy regular play (200+ plays/week), but 1.34 would probably be fine as well.

#1518 4 months ago

I think I have 1.26 saved on my pc. I’ll look tonight if I have time.

#1519 4 months ago

Just updated code on my LE. Played a few game, better eat dinner before playing anymore or I'll go to bed hungry. I may be up for sometime tonight.

#1520 4 months ago

I have 1.29 on my thumb drive. Let me know if you'd like a copy.

in regards to old code, I have received a version of 1.29, which works swimmingly well for me. thanks a bunch.

for anyone else who is curious about having a backup copy of older code, there is still a downloadable version of 1.34 available (for now) on the Stern support website on their 'SD Card Images' page. it requires writing the code to an SD card instead of the usual thumb drive process, but there are thorough instructions on their site on how to accomplish this.

#1522 4 months ago

I’m definitely going to save the old code. I like the new code as a player, but as a tournament director this “everyone gets a HOTK!” code makes me nervous.

Use the setting to make everyone play the same house then.

#1524 4 months ago

Yes. Or just say no Stark or Targaryan allowed. If someone picked it and plays the ball they are DQ’d.

And you could force them to play different houses in each round of competition. Stark for quarter finals, Baratheon for semi finals and Greyjoy’s for the finals.

#1530 4 months ago

Yup, Dwight took many of our setting requests and made them reality. You can turn off castle loop completion of houses, also tweak the number of times a button ability may be used per ball and used per game, so Stark's direwolf ability can be scaled back, or made overpowered as the player desires.

But the BEST new setting that will end the frustration and hacks around the ball falling out of the throne: You can now turn off the throne entirely, and the ball will return to the upper playfield instead. Brilliant!

#1531 4 months ago

Anything you can do to slow the ball down will help it stick the landing in the throne. Lots of ways to do this, but I agree that a factory solution would have been nice.

Yup, I added 3 small rubber speed bumps to the wireform a couple weeks ago, and haven't had a throne fall out since.

#1533 4 months ago

What strategies are you guys using with the new code? I made my first Iron Throne tonight with Stark. I used Direwolf on Baratheon and Targaryen 2 and 3. I used castle completions on Lannister and Tyrell. Completed the rest the old fashioned way. Almost completed Iron Throne, capturing 6 of 7 castles! Finished at 5.7 billion, with 2 billion from Iron Throne.

I've been playing Targaryen a bunch too, mainly because I am afraid of dragons.

#1534 4 months ago

Here's a fun strategy. Not really one for competition but fun at home or on location. Pick Greyjoy. Play Tyrell next. Now play BWMB and when you come out of it, use your Iron Bank button to cash in 100-200M. Now play Stark, cash it in quick and easy, don't worry about maxing it out. Now play Lannister. Use your Stark button to finish Lannister. Now HOTK will be ready. Go into HOTK with the Lannister button ability and profit! This is pretty hard to pull off but lots of fun when you can do it.

#1535 4 months ago

I’m goin to dive into other strategies once i get sick of playing castle MB over and over. Haha. So much fun.

I tried this today about 5 or 6 times before I pulled it off. More info.... Once you've done all this snag Martell. Now you've got the add-a-ball for your 2nd BWMB or Wall MB or even Winter Has Come. Then do Baratheon for the Lord of Light and carry that into Targaryen to hopefully use the LOL to help you finish Targ with all it's dangerous shots. Today I only made it to stage 2 of Targ so no Iron Throne for me. Still a bit over 5 billion.

Actually, the hardest part of this strategy is on ball one just surviving all the shots to the Tyrell targets to get that lit!

Right?! Coming from the Pro, I’ve really grown to love the upper PF!

#1538 3 months ago

In Castle MB, I like to...
- advance Castle MB progress up to the last insert (Castle MB)
- get 2X or 3X going on the lower playfield before starting Castle MB
- go to the upper playfield and shoot 2 Castle Loops to get 3X on the upper PF
--- the combination of 3X on the upper and 3X on the main = 9X
--- Start Castle MB and go for Supers on the upper PF - while keeping the PF Multipliers high

Remember that the upper PFX is multiplied by the main PFX - so 3X * 3X = 9X - and the max is 15X (3X * 5X)
- also you get the add-a-ball at the first Super, and if you have the Martell Action button you can get another Add-a-Ball when needed

Trying to do exactly this while playing as Greyjoy.

I just had a cool moment where I had the stark power still, I needed one more mode for HOTK. I started the final dragon on targaryens mode, as the ball came down from the lock, I hit the lock bar button to kill the mode the. Immediately shot the center ramp for HOTK. Badass!

Awesome - so many possible ways to play this game now. Playing as Greyjoy is intense if you are trying to figure out how to line everything up.

Currently I try to focus on a couple key things when playing as Greyjoy:
- beat Martell right before 1 or 2 Multiballs
- use the Action Button as much as possible

At first I found myself not using the Action Button effectively in Greyjoy, so I changed my default to "when in doubt, hit the button"! I hit it at the wrong times frequently, but it helps to get used to the ever changing ability. The more you use it, the more you get used to it.

Hi all, loving my Game of Thrones LE, just bought and put a Color dmd in it. Looking for a couple of answers or some help of other Color dmd’ers for this game.....which setting for the screen type do you use and like, I’ve set mine to the “Tile” one as the hires one looked blurry or fuzzy, and has anyone noticed that some of the graphics are not actually coloured or look quite blurry or just don’t look quite right?? I have the latest firmware for the game and dmd.

Try the big dots mode

#1544 3 months ago

I finally played the game with the new code on it.

WOW!!! is all I have to say. It really elevates the game.

I noticed too new colors on the playfield, for instance the Lord of Light has a rainbow effect. On the upper playfield, the multiplier has a rainbow like effect.

I noticed a lot of new callouts too.

Is there a ColorDMD update for the game with the new code?

#1545 3 months ago

I agree. This game has improved a lot with this code update. Hopefully the word will get out and this game will get a little more respect. I think it’s easily a top 25 game.

DotsXL for me. What scenes dont look colored or 'right'? I might have missed some. And remember if it looks blurry, its only a 128x32 dot image. There isn't much crispness in that

Pics would help.

I’ve done it xldots, looks heaps better but it’s the scene with the giant mammoth and they’re walking towards the wall? It might be meant to be black and white, but it just doesn’t look right. I think it’s the white walker mode thingo?

#1548 3 months ago

I had a crazy awesome combo today, even if it wasn't fully intentional. Started Stark Mode. Hit the center ramp 11 times in a row, then the left orbit to complete the mode. When the ball came around the right orbit I slapped it into the Dragon shot(which just happened to be the last one needed to qualify Wall MB). When it rocketed out of the Dragon shot I flailed and backhanded it up the right orbit to start Wall MB! It was crazy and 14 shots total over about 15 seconds.

Only Mammoth scene I recall is this one:

Mammoth.gif

Unless you mean the beginning intro to Battle for the wall multiball and I know thats colored and shows on my LE. A lot of those night/snow scenes are sparse on color just because they are dark and filmed that way.

If a scene is uncolored it would show up in the default yellow/gold color like the score is in.

No it’s not that one. It’s the one where they’re walking out of the forest? I’ll try and get video of it. Having said that, I’ve never seen the scene you show!!
