Quoted from Trekkie1978:

Looking through the pics, have you guys ever considered installing the Comet DMD glare guard? I install it on all of my games and it works great. The instructions are to apply it to the outside of the plastic in front of the DMD. I install it on the inside of the plastic in front of the DMD.

With the new BB style i don't find it much of an issue but I turned down the back box light setting in the menu under 10% so that eliminates the glare from that........

Quoted from chuckwurt:

Remember that you cannot get higher than 3x multipliers (playfield or combo), to start out. You have to unlock them by completing modes and then collecting a sword at the right ramp. Once you've collected two swords, all multipliers are unlocked. I suggested completing a couple houses before going into multiball.

If that's the case, what does collecting additional swords do?

#303 3 years ago

I went to Modern Pinball tonight while I was in the city. I played a few games on Got Pro.

Couple things I noticed:

1 - The LE playfield has more detail. Around the house names, the pro just has a gray color.
2 - Upper playfield adds a lot to the game. I kept shooting for it even though it wasn't there.
3 - The dragon moves so much better on the Le/Premium.
4 - More of an observation of Pro vs Premium/Le, but the light show is night and day. I'll admit, I've taken for granted the light shows on Star Trek LE and GOT LE. Amazing the difference between a game that has full color changers vs a game that doesn't.

Quoted from spandol:

Nothing outside of collecting their point value. If you increase the difficulty of increasing the multipliers in the settings, then collecting more swords come into play.

Indeed, but how many Elwins are there? I like to play pinball for giggles and just have some fun. Playing in a tourney atmosphere just brings out the douche in most people. Pass......

For sure, Scott did a super nice job on that! What do you think about the topper with the translite? Too much?

No crybabies

No crybabies

Personally, I would have liked to see Scott extend the artwork for the topper, doing more characters in the same style, but I don't really think it looks like too much...the duplicate artwork is only annoying if you stand there oogling your machine instead of playing it. I'm happy with my stern topper paired with Scott's artwork.

It's totally wild.
I got like an extra ball awarded during a multiball and the whole thing just went bananas... Think I saw a red dragon breathing fire on the DMD when winning the extra ball.

#321 3 years ago

Ok ok ok...

So it seems like it's about bashing the ram a butt load of times to increase the multipliers, then when in multiball shoot for the super jackpot a ton (which I think was the ram?).

Finally got my initials on the game just now

Yep. Super jackpot at the ram. It's lit after you hit all jackpots during Blackwater MB. Hit the hell out of it as its on a timer. If the timer runs out, all the jackpot shots light again and you have to hit them 2 times each to relight the SJP.

#323 3 years ago

After many days & weeks of pure frustration, I managed to cross 1B for the very first time tonite! Funny thing is, I only had 30M going into Ball 3, then I killed it! Martel > Greyjoy > BWMB. I had a few very nice games earlier today - seems like the shots are finally clicking for me.

Side note - I am totally pleased withe additional lighting I put into the backbox behind the translite. Brightens & warms the permiter beyond what the SPIKE LEDs can do on their own. Comet warm-white strips. BIG difference for me!

#324 3 years ago

I'm a pro owner for the moment ^^ i say for the moment because i played this week end an Le. I noticed a really nice improvement over the pro....Castle Black ! It enables advance wall more easier...i like that (ok i don't like the target in front of the right ramp though).

#325 3 years ago

Black water is all about getting your PF multipliers ready to go before collecting on the supers. Also, if you want to get real brave, pound away at the ram before starting Black Water so that you can increase your wildfire. Wildfire increases your jackpots and supers.

And Labnip - Sticker looks great, now take that ugly black cover off the tip of your sword

#326 3 years ago

Last night, I got up to 10x multiplier. Thanks everyone for pointing out that collecting swords is the key to this.

Just to reiterate, after playing the pro, I have a whole new appreciation for the premium/LE.

#327 3 years ago

Late to the party but I'm in.

You guys are making my 720k high score seem not-so-impressive

Ah, no biggie, sounds like anything less than 6 billion isn't even a decent score anymore.

We need a novice level non tournament area for us Dudes so we can feel good about ourselves.

720k = 1st 10 seconds of 1st ball. I think you meant 750M.

So after the Ohio show and playing both GOT and GOT premium I decided to go with the LE. I hope to receive it this coming week.I like the art package better than the premium JMO. Luckily there was one left. The two games are totally different.both great.

#336 3 years ago

Any LE owners think about having their wire ramps black anodized or black chrome powder coated? I've been thinking of doing this if I can buy an extra set of wire ramps. Was thinking of a black anodized look.

Brass. Goes with the gold theme.

White would probably look good on premium.

I put the sticker next to the sword last night. Looks great. I recommend everyone do this.

Also last night, one of my friends finally got to try the machine for the first time (not like it's been in my place since December). He loved it.

Out of the 7 machines in my collection, he pointed to Star Trek LE, Spider-Man VE, and GOT LE as the 3 best in my collection. He didn't realize that he selected the 3 Steve Ritchie machines in my collection.

#344 3 years ago

I've mentioned this issue before. I am failing to register nice clean right orbit shots, like Extra Ball and Mystery. It's driving me crazy.

Just now I had a very nice ball 3 going, reached HOTK, then Winter Has Come. Extra Ball and Mystery were lit and I actually hit the right orbit cleanly from the right flipper for the ~first time. The ball rolled right thru, but only enabled Winter is Coming on that shot, not awarding Extra Ball or Mystery. I did not manage to hit the right ramp again before draining ball 3. Scored 1.7B - not bad for me

I've adjusted the rollover switch in the right orbit to be very sensitive. In Switch Test mode, this switch never misses. Still, I miss a ton of Mystery shots - not 100%, but way too many.

Do you think there is some other switch in combination acting here I am just not hitting? Maybe a timing issue? How about the right orbit gate above the in-lane bumpers...anything up there? Shouldn't the diverter have kicked the ball into the elevator for Mystery - maybe the diverter is flaky, now from the right?

I wish I could get to the bottom of this. Makes me CRAZY!

If I understand what you are asking, you will not collect the EB or Mystery unless the ball actually goes into the scoop up top and is ejected into the throne. I sometimes have soft shots to the right orbit that don't go into the scoop and dribble back out the left orbit. But on mine any strong shot to the right orbit when mystery, EB, or WMB is lit usually makes it where it's supposed to go.

#346 3 years ago

Curious, what SCOOP you are referring to? There's the left and right orbit gates up top and then the diverter arm into the elevator. If Mystery is lit, seems like the diverter should kick the ball over. Maybe getting there too fast or too slow to be kicked?

The last orbit shot described above was a very solid shot. Not a rocket my any means, but certainly not a dribbler.

#347 3 years ago

I guess it's not really a scoop, but where the ball goes when the diverter actuates.

What happens when you launch a ball? Is it going into the elevator and to the upper playfield?

If that isn't working, then you definitely have an issue with the diverted arm not opening.

#349 3 years ago

I've noticed a somewhat sort of bug during multiball, the left orbit switch will cause right orbit switches to sometimes not register. Not sure what the fix is as I think this code is to prevent right orbits registering from a full left loop shot. Dwight will have to get creative.

Quoted from Trekkie1978:

The diverter arm is working just fine in diagnostics. When I launch, the ball will go to the upper playfield about ~50% of the time. I had presumed this was not supposed to be a 100% thing; rather, dependent upon which mode/ball was in play.

Just played with the glass off - never missed the mystery shot. Ugh. Then glass on - missed it twice in a row with the ball continuing thru and exiting from the left orbit. Seems if the the diverter arm had opened on the Mystery switch the ball would have bumped into the elevator assy and trickled back down into the pops, vs making it all the way around. The only common thread I can see is WIC is ready to be lit, or is lit when this happens.

The right orbit is a challenge for me to hit consistently - when I do hit it - I WANT TO TAKE CREDIT!!
