Quoted from toeskneez:

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!!

Whoops. I meant Battle for the wall. And that shows colored. There isn't much color in the actual footage either.

I experimented with each of the settings for the ColorDMD (LCD) this weekend. "Dots" (not DotsXL) was by far the best.
I also tried the smaller colorDMD LED display - no comparison. Use the more configurable and larger LCD display.

The smaller LED display works best for non-video (cartoon) animations like those on Star Trek, Simpsons etc. It will be much brighter and show better color gradients, when they exist. It really pops on TWD! The larger LCD display works better for live-action movie animations like GOT and Iron Man.

That’s the one! If yours is the same, and it’s the same as the show I guess it is what it is. Thanks for the help nerbflong!!

I found the xldots looks pretty good on GOT, but will give it a go on “normal” dots. I have one on my TWD too it looks awesome in hires like you say! Absolutely love it.

What's the best fix for when the ball falls out of the throne? Sometimes i get a clean landing, sometimes not.

Lower the ramp as close to the throne as possible.

Quoted from NorCalRealtor:

For me it was just looking straight down through the wireform at the chair and just adjusting the wireform so it is exactly in line with the chair.

Rubber speed bumps did the trick for me.

#1560 80 days ago

I adjusted the ramp to be low at the vuk and high at the throne, to slow the ball down.

It seems that the problem is too much speed in the ball as it drops onto the throne. however you do it, you just need to slow it a bit so the drop doesn’t bounce out. Play with the ramp, if you can’t get it, add speed bumps on the ramp or a cushion of foam on seat.

Quoted from NorCalRealtor:

For me, the fix was slowing the ball down before it gets to the throne. I put post rubbers on a few of the habitrail cross-braces, and that was just enough for it to stick the landing every time.

Quoted from chuckwurt:

Yes, me too. I added 3 small speed bumps and have had only one fall out since. There is also a setting now to turn off the throne altogether if needed.

Party stucky ball. And yes, I did use a lego piece to make the battering ram a little easier. No guilt.

That’s a hard place to get a ball! Do you not have the plastic that goes over the battering ramp to prevent that?

anyone have any updated instruction cards for the new code? New action button house abilities should be on it, no?

If you set up a tournament say for 5 days, and machine is turned off at any time you will loose tournament setting. I set them up for the kids to play. They like having their name on machine for high score. Thanks chuckwurt for passing it on to Dwight.

I have been getting to know my new LE. I have noticed that one some plunges when popping the ball up to the upper playfield the VUK will take two or three attempts to make it. The iron throne/mystery so far seems to make it on the first try. I didn't notice a setting anywhere in the adjustments menu for this. The game is aboht 2 months out of box with very few plays. Any thoughts? Thanks

I believe it should auto adjust and get better over time. Let it go for a couple weeks and see if it improves after some more play.

Thanks brother. I hope to check out your videos on the game to better understand the game.

Choose Baratheon to start with. Had a super 1st ball. All down hill after that, funny thing is I knew that was going to happen. Had to walk way in "Shame" but I was fully clothed.

I have a nice Pro but played a Premium recently for a few games and really liked it.

any thought if upgrading is worth it? I know some like the pro better but especially with new codes wonder if that really tips scales for the Prem/LE

Thanks,
Darin

I've only played a premium and now own an LE.
chuckwurt owned a pro for a couple year I believe and just upgraded to a premium. He'll let you know soon, I'm sure.

PS. Nice collection. How you liken the ACNC. I have that in my mind to buy, soon I hope.

If the price is right do it.

Just got it the other day. So far so good. I also have #99 preorder for sale. You interested in that for $700? Nice $300 discount on a NIB.

I play the premium at home and the pro in league. The pro is great but when you're used to the premium it always feels like it's missing something! Also, the new code really lends itself to the premium/LE. BUT, similar to Ghostbusters, this is probably a bad time to be looking to buy a GOT. With the massive code update, machines are gonna be harder to find and prices will certainly be on the upper end if you do find one.

Does anyone still sell this custom castle wall mod? Mezel Mods says they're no longer available. LMK, thanks.

Done. Just picked up an LE today. Still in my Yukon so no photos but looks great. Very stoked.

Also today just sold my pro to a Pinsider who from up from Birmingham. One day for the complete change out. Not bad. Lol, I left my house at 5:15 am to go get my LE in order to be home from Nashville in time for my buyer.

That's what I call going to extra mile. "Winter is Coming"
You are now the Hand of the King!

So had a weird bug yesterday. I have submitted to Stern via email, but wanted to see if anyone has run into this.

TLDR: Had 2 balls locked and lock lit when I started HotK. During HotK, I was in Stark bonus round. I made a left ramp right as the timer hit 1 second. Instead of starting round 2 of HotK, it stopped immediately played Blackwater intro, and began that multiball with its rules, never to go back to HotK again.

Full Details if anyone wants to try and reproduce:
I had started the game with a random selected house (Targaryen), and had moved through the game on ball one.  I had completed 4 total houses (Targaryen by default, Stark, Greyjoy and Tyrell.  This qualified Hand of the King, which I started.  When I started this, I had two balls locked for Blackwater Multiball, and had hit the third lock target, so Lock was blinking for the left ramp.

I made all four shots for the houses for Hand of the King, and hit the battering ram.  When I did this, it started the 20 second shooting mode because Stark was one of the completed houses.  I had one ball trapped on my left flipper and was just shooting left loops with my other ball.  Right as the timer reached 1 second, I shot the left ramp.  It made it to the top of the ramp and then was held by the sword.  It then immediately ended Hand of the King and began the animation for Blackwater Multiball.  It released the two balls held, and never launched a third ball (because the third was already on my flipper).  When this multiball ended, it never went to Hand of the King, or showed the score end or anything.

It was like as the Stark shooting mode ended, instead of going back to Hand of the King, Blackwater Multiball had priority and it decided to start that mode, instead of round 2 Hand of the King.

Certainly seems like a bug. Try to reproduce and let us know.
