Well I never expected this to be coloured either. Had the LCD in just in case and thought it might have been like my STLE wait. Wow. This is great news.
Mine is LCD and I prefer the hi-res look. And yes the high score was posted after reading chuckwurt advice on playing this games. I still love it and no quality control issues at all. Touch wood.

Ordered GoT Monday and Cointaker delivered it Tuesday. I just want to post some pictures of the playfield and date it was manufactured. This game looks great and I only had to adjust the sword out of the box, everything else seems to be working perfectly. The playfield looks great and I will know what machine is mine if I ever sell, because a small hair is under the clear coat behind the spinner. I know this is the honeymoon phase, but this game is great.

I’m on west coast so that’s during my commute drive home. If someone posts a direct link here I’ll listen in on my drive but won’t be able to chat and such.

Having to do the family thing in Ridgewood NJ without GOTpro. Best to everyone on the 21st. Right now, this bottle is all I have to celebrate regarding the new 69th ColorDMD.82E5713B-9B7B-427A-A702-D133C9A16789 (resized).jpeg

#5061 1 year ago

Trying to diagnose a potential problem. Can someone take a picture of the sword mech with the sword pushed all the way down? Any other position could be helpful too.

#5063 1 year ago

That looks fantastic!
Can’t wait to install mine later today. Thanks for the video!

#5064 1 year ago

man this thing looks good, it feels like i'm discovering new images and scenes i never saw before.

#5065 1 year ago

I was asked for a video in scan mode.

#5066 1 year ago

Looking good!

#5067 1 year ago

This colordmd looks amazing. Its turned blurry images into beautiful content. STERN is lucky colorDMD exists - it's upgrades like this that have helped sell games. Just imagine the remaining STERN games with the new advancements in the colordmd technology...

Yeah it's sort of having that Wh20 feel which I still think was a big eye opener.

Quoted from beatmaster:

Just amazing. This is my 6th color DMD but this one is special. I was really wanting to see the beginning scene of Wall MB. I started it and it was impressive, BUT during the MB I'm seeing scenes I have NEVER been able to make out. I'm seeing clearly Egret firing her arrows and Tormond wreaking havoc. Also the Ice Scythe coming across the wall is so much more detailed. You want to play Stark mode just to see the detail in all the faces as Arya calls them out. I'm blown away by this one. Thanks ColorDMD!

#5070 1 year ago

Wow that color DMD looks incredible! I’m going to have to get one for sure.

Is their a way to turn off the random award of "extra ball lit" from the pop bumpers? I like it when you have to achieve an "extra ball lit" like completing 3 houses. It can be frustrating when you are playing against some one and they get a random award of an extra ball lit. So I want to eliminate that award from the pops, but not from achieving it through game play completion. Does this make sense?

Look into tournament mode. Doesn’t that remove some of the randomness

Makes sense. I suggest turning extra balls off completely when playing against someone. But if you want to, if a player your playing against gets a EB from the pops, just make them plunge it and not play it. No way to turn that setting off for the pop award only.

Quoted from Luckydogg420:

This is a good point too. I believe if you turn competition mode on, the game make allow one EB and it will only be the one from completing houses.

#5074 1 year ago

Doesn’t competition mode (hold right flipper for 10 secs or something like that) turn off random awards like EBs in multiplayer games?

#5075 1 year ago

Competition mode normally turns them off or makes them worth points instead.

#5076 1 year ago
Quoted from 85vett:

Does it turn them off completely or just for random awards? It would be nice to keep them in for when you complete 3 houses.

» YouTube video

Thanks for the vids! Makes it harder than I thought, older bw I like the look of dots, but on newer sterns think Im prefering the higher rez mode..

#5078 1 year ago
Quoted from Monk:

Test it. It might allow the House one only. Or it allows one EB only no matter how you get it. I seem to remember competition mode working that way when I inquired about it like 2 years ago.

#5079 1 year ago

Ok so I put the game on competition mode and you still get the extra ball after 3 house completions. I then put the ball in the pops to see if I could get an extra ball that way. Although it did appear in the screen it never actually triggered one. I don’t know how to test the pop awards other than just feeding the bumpers until they award something.

#5080 1 year ago

Hey I’d just like to share my new mod for GOT (well any spike game) this is an under cabinet led kit that will change colour with the button on the lockdown bar. So when multiple players use different houses in a game, the machine will glow a different colour to represent you. A big thanks to Allibaster for helping me by double check my work before I plugged anything in. I was pretty hesitant doing this on my own with my limited knowledge in electrical design. Nothing is permanent, its easy to remove. it’s essentially a “Y” jack that comes out of the cabinet node board and connects from the lockdown bar’s button to an led amp that runs a rgb 12v strip. The 12v power comes from the bill acceptor header and has a fuse inline just in case.

If anyone is interested in doing this mod let me know. I’ll show you hows it’s done. I might also make a couple kits up if there’s enough interest.

#5081 1 year ago

Anyone have any insight as to the resolution for this sporatic weak autolaunch? It's completely random, but when it occurs it really messes with ya (especially during multiballs).

Things I've tried.
-Felt in the top of the rest stop for the armature. To eliminate the slack. (Photo below)
-Taken everything apart and cleaned very well, even polished the friction points where applicable.
-Cleaned the shooter lane really well.
-Checked alignment on everything.
-Reseated all connectors on the nodeboard.

You'll see that it just doesn't have enough umph to get the ball up there for many attempts, but then the next autolaunch it has all the power in the world. Possible nodeboard issue? Maybe a new coil is needed?

#5082 1 year ago

Just started happening? Any changes made to the game before this started? I would really try and find slop in he mech anywhere.

#5083 1 year ago

Yep just started this week. Only change was the colordmd install last week. No other mods done to the machine. Reverted the colordmd install to see if that helped and no change. Ill order some new bushings and see if that helps.

#5084 1 year ago

This looks more electrical in nature, rather than mechanical. Check the voltage to the coil when this starts happening. I could check mine so you would know what it's supposed to be.

#5085 1 year ago

Good call on checking the voltage! Will see if i can get some readings over the next couple days. I think it may be difficuly to get good readings though when my DMM doesn't have a peak memory setting.. will do my best

#5086 1 year ago

So I’ve got an early version colordmd and am having trouble with the upload. Keep ending up with little dots everywhere.
Might have to try a different thumb drive maybe? I noticed in Randy’s instructions he mentions revision 1.3B
Mine says 1.3. Does this mean I am up for another (gulp) $600AUD newer version colordmd? Please noooooo!!!

try this. You’ll need a new ram chip I think.

Old ColorDMDs will not work. You need a new one with better processing capability.

Im afraid we are in the same boat. I dismounted mine from Tron and found out it was a revision 1.3 instead of 1.3B I do not want to de-solder the chip and replace it, so I ordered brand new one.. yes the price here has also increased but for this machine I think its worth it. You could as well sell your older DMD to make it a little easier to gulp

Thanks so much for the GOT tutorials. I own my GOT prem for over two years now but still I learned a lot of things, especially on PF validation. I must admit that once you can get yourself into the habit of the ''short plunge'' AND make good use of it, it is a whole new ballgame.
But its not easy to change the regular plunge habit, I tell you.
I tried many ''short plunges'' where I aim for the LOL but that seems not a good strategy on my machine as it often drains on the left outlane. Oh well, plenty room for improvements.

Looking forward to part III & IV !

#5091 1 year ago

How good is Randy’s service. He emailed me back to let me know about the chip upgrade.
He must have checked my previous orders and says I can use the one I ordered back in August.

Could have just said yep you need another.
Thanks again dmod great product, great after sale service, even down under!

Now to rip out the one in STLE and swap it into GoTLE full colour here we come.

Hey Eric, I just hit a single shot in Targaryen 3 worth 284M. It was 20x. What a rush!

#5095 1 year ago
Quoted from LOTR_breath:

Hell yeah! Best thing about that mode is that every single shot made can be at massive multiplied values. Other big shots involve the battering ram which can only be multiplied by 5.

Quoted from Monk:

Ok so I put the game on competition mode and you still get the extra ball after 3 house completions

Competition mode does not turn off extra balls. In most games, it will align random awards so they are the same for each player.

The only way to turn off EBs is to go to the SPI menu option “extra balls” (the 5th option from memory) Turn them down to 0.

So, 2 steps for competition:
1/ turn off extra balls
2/ turn on Competition option (or Tournament, depending on game)
