Quoted from Whysnow:

I do know that I am ultra senstive to this and my eyes dont adjust well to light flashes so maybe it is not so bad for other people???

Not bad at all. Does it make the game harder? Yep, but I like that. Glad to hear GOT is using the same type lighting effects as TWD. I hope to have these two games sitting in the same lineup one day.

Quoted from Roo:

Can't picture that ever colorizing well. Would have been stunning in HD

I've heard tron is next on the color dmd. I guess we will find out soon enough. But I don't think it will color well either

#49 5 years ago
Quoted from Aurich:

Last I heard it was coloring great!

Cool. Can't wait to see it.

#58 5 years ago

Okay. I've been playing for two hours. This game is effing sweet. I have no idea what the hell in doing and I couldn't be having more fun. The strobe during winter is coming and black water multiball is awesome. Makes those easy shots way harder. Still trying to figure out what the best two houses are to stack. Also, not sure which house is the best to choose on ball one.

Like I said though. This game is tons of fun.

#63 5 years ago
Quoted from TVP:

When are the LE's going to start shipping?

Soon. Perms probably xmas.

#65 5 years ago
Quoted from Pdxmonkey:

Just wait till it all clicks
What house are you starting with?
I like the add a ball and the advance multiball ones.

I like greyjoy cause of stealing other house powers but I cannot complete more than one ore two houses a game. Haha.

The add a ball one is key too as the only other way to get add a ball is by random pop bumper award.

#69 5 years ago
Quoted from TheLaw:

Aurich colored ours.
I got a little NF feeling with GOT for sure. I was saying before the Pyramid show is the same as the skyjump shot on NF. Tricks you into thinking you can shoot it with the left flipper. It's like iof you took NF and moved all the ramps up closer to the flippers.

Need to be look into that stuff more as i don;t now all the rules. I always started selecting the Starks, hitting center ramp 15 times and thren cashing in left loop. Easy way to start with 150+ mill

The one I played last night did not cash in the stark mode at the left loop. The dragon completed the mode. I thought it was left loop, but maybe it changed with the new code.

#71 5 years ago
Quoted from chuckwurt:

The one I played last night did not cash in the stark mode at the left loop. The dragon completed the mode. I thought it was left loop, but maybe it changed with the new code.

I think I figured it out. You have to make a Full loop, it cannot stop in the top lanes.

#104 5 years ago
Quoted from mof:

I can't see in the vid -- What are you shooting for up top? Drops/Standups or ... ?

From what I can tell, you are hitting standups to complete parts of the Targeryan house mode.

Quoted from mof:

Also -- what happened to the lazy gradient shield, is that out of the LE, and still part of the pro? I can't unsee that thing.

haha. I just got done playing the shit out of a Pro this weekend (at least 50-60 games). I cannot tell you what the shield looked like behind the house sigils. But I believe you are right that it was changed on the Prem/LE, and left unchanged on the Pro.

#106 5 years ago
Quoted from LesManley:

You have to add an underscore in the file name to make it work. We had the same problem here. We did get it to work so we used 1.10 in our launch party, but we had a lot of random resets and eventually had to pull it from the finals.

This happened to the one near me too. Luckily it only reset twice on Friday, and one more time yesterday.

1 week later
#167 5 years ago

I was playing the other day and noticed that once you get all the jackpots in BW multiball, the ram lights for unlimited supers for a period of time. However, if you get enough supers before the time runs out, all the regular jackpots relight again. Pretty awesome and deep that the multiball can go that long.

#179 5 years ago
Quoted from Luckydogg420:

One complaint I have is that when you hit the right ramp to get a sword, I thought the audio clip saying the sword name to be really delayed. Like 3-5sec after the ramp is made.
Unlike the left ramp when in stark mode. Aria stark is calling out her list of names as soon as you hit the ramp.

The callout for when you have lock lit is delayed sometimes too.

#201 5 years ago
Quoted from markmon:

the pops reward the reels not at the wall multiball. I believe that is achieve by completing the winter is coming hurry ups.

Wall multiball is reached by completing the top two roll over lanes a certain number of times. If you are house Baratheon, you get there faster.

Completely the WIC hurry ups gets you winter has come wizard mode. Not sure if it's a multiball or what.

#217 5 years ago

Is your score 18 digits long? Wtf?

#227 5 years ago
Quoted from Jodester:

Have any of you guys with the GoT pro installed a shaker? Any issues? I will have my game on Thursday and have a shaker on the way. I want to be sure there are no issues installing...

One we have locally has a shaker and it's awesome.

#270 5 years ago
Quoted from Eskaybee:

Nice! I imagine the scoring in those mini wizard modes is based on how well you did in each mode, could you tell off your limited play?

The mini wizard changes based off what houses you've completed to get there. I believe the shots it takes for you to complete the HOTK changes based off what 4 houses you completed beforehand, not how well you did in those modes.

#283 5 years ago
Quoted from LOTR_breath:

Sword lock is indeed still a physical lock. Dragon kickback/hold, I believe a similar thing was done with the Bird shot on BBH.
Last night I was playing after league and I had Stark in Alliance with Greyjoy, I couldn't find any way to complete it. Must have played that mode 4-5 times. Anyone know how to complete this, or could this be a bug?

I had the same issue. The loops were flashing like I could cash in Stark, but nothing happened when I made the shot.

#285 5 years ago
Quoted from Snailman:

the orbits will behave like a ramp and just keep adding points to your Stark cash out value.

Edit: I misread your post. Sorry!

Thanks for the clarification on the greyjoy rules!

#293 5 years ago
Quoted from PinballCharlie:

Really? So, for example, if I complete House Martell while fighting for Greyjoy then I get the add-a-ball feature as if I was playing as House Martell? That is awesome.

Yep. But like he said, it's a lot harder to complete Martell than if you selected another house to represent.

#302 5 years ago
Quoted from LOTR_breath:

A guy in our league this week played a single mode that ended up being worth 1.5B alone. Sorry, I don't know which house it was.

I bet you could get close to 2 bills if you could get 5x playfield, Tyrell shot multipliers and max those out as well. Isn't the max multiplied shot 25x? How high does the stark base jackpot go? 75 million? That will get you there for sure.

#304 5 years ago
Quoted from Rob_G:

Maybe Tyrell multipliers should not be constantly lit? Sounds like it's too lucrative compared to some of the other modes.

That or have the combo red arrows time out quicker. I don't really think a combo should count if you have time to brick three or four times, trap up, then hit a combo shot. Haha

#331 5 years ago

I agree. Haven't seen any air balls and I've played two different ones. Only air balls came when the ball was on top of the drops as they reset.

#345 5 years ago
Quoted from LOTR_breath:

The Got pro on location where we play league has a big hole right in the front center of the pyramid also. Most airballs that I've seen come from a 1/2 ramp shot which comes fast back to the right flipper and then the player hits that on the fly. You quickly learn to handle those 1/2 ramp shots with a dead bounce or a live catch.

Can't you position the flipper rubber differently to prevent the fast, on the fly, air ball shots like the ones you're referring too?

#359 5 years ago
Quoted from Ballsofsteel:

GOT pro is officially 24 hours out, roads and weather permitting. This is my 3rd stern NIB, with Tron and Metallica being the other 2. I feel 'as giddy as a little schoolgirl' as I get to play it for 5 days until I put it out on location

Lucky. Hoping to get mine Saturday. If I do get it then, I see very little sleep in my future. Haha

#379 5 years ago
Quoted from Ballsofsteel:

wow, just wow....--- this machine. did a few quick mods (plastic protectors and titan flipper and sling silicon rubber), and now I will go buy some beer for game #1. new balls, waxed, checked switches, running code 1.16? thought there was only 1.15 and 1.17? oh well.

P1030217.jpg P1030220.jpg P1030235.jpg

Your quick mods are the same I plan to do. Enjoy!

#392 5 years ago
Quoted from Jean-Luc-Picard:

The theme integration was her opinion, she is the big fan of the show/books and of course she did not expect whores and nudity. lol WTF. I judged the pin from a pinball perspective in terms of quality, art direction and game play. To sum up my "opinion" It felt cheap.

How did the gameplay feel cheap?

#418 5 years ago
Quoted from smassa:

Well judging from the general feedback of the Pro (and no I'm not buying one) your opinion of the gameplay and feel is in the vast minority. I've played the Pro in 82 on multiple occasions and it feels great and the gameplay is fantastic. Sorry it didn't meet your expectations of what a GoT pin should be.

His opinion is mostly based on the physical feel and appearance of the game. Seems like he made up his mind before he played because this game is down right fun. Picard I suggest you go and give the game a solid 4-5 hours and I'm sure your opinion will improve. You're missing out on a great player.

#456 5 years ago

Crud! My game won't be ready till mid Dec. oh well, can't wait to get this badboy home!

#458 5 years ago
Quoted from Luckydogg420:

Is this for an LE?

Nope. Pro. LEs I heard xmas or after.

#461 5 years ago

Cool. I guess they are shipping those along with the Pros then. Good news.

#466 5 years ago
Quoted from Jodester:

Stern is sending me a new pyramid to replace the cracked one. Very easy to deal with. I won't put the new one on until I get some protection for the pyramid.

I would keep at trying to fix your air ball problem too as this is not happening to everyone.

#471 5 years ago

Great score. I think all the uber good players need to only choose greyjoy for extra challenge.

#475 5 years ago
Quoted from Hwawonyu:

This is crazy. I ordered right after expo. 6 weeks or more to get Pros out of the factory.

Not sure what the holdup is but I'm sure they are selling a ton of these.

#477 5 years ago
Quoted from Rob_G:

My friend has been waiting 5 months for his KISS premium! :O He should get it mid December.

Dang. So it must be something with one of their parts people or maybe they are understaffed. Very common for companies that are expanding. Slippery slope on when to decide to hire more or try and stretch the current workforce to maximize margins. I'm sure they will get it sorted out and be more timely in the future.

#522 5 years ago
Quoted from markmon:

The dragon should *never* shoot sdtm. On the two games I had in my shop and the one I currently own this absolutely never happens. No kickouts or scoops ever should do that. If yours does this, you should do some adjustments.
As for general game times, they do feel a little on the longer ball time range. I haven't owned the game for long, but I have beaten it once already and get to hand of the king most games. I feel like I've already done almost everything there is to do and am not sure if I'll be playing the game again soon. I like it, but TWD pulls me in more. I definitely worry about longevity on this one. PDXMonkey, who started this thread, is already considering selling his for the same reason.

Have you gotten to Winter has Come? Basically you have to complete all the Winter is coming hurry ups.

Also, I am sure there will be another wizard mode (or maybe there already is), for doing things multiple times (like Star Trek). Not sure what happens after you complete Iron Throne mode, but it would be cool if you didn't win the Iron Throne you had to start all over again, or at least get some of the completed houses taken away that you had to defeat again to get back to the Iron Throne mode.

#524 5 years ago
Quoted from Luckydogg420:

Why couldn't they just program it that after you "beat the game" once you pick a new family to be the hero for. Then yo would have to beat each house several times to ultimately finish the game.

That's a good idea too. Oh the possibilities! Excited to see how this game matures.

#530 5 years ago

Bummer. No go on my Pro this week. Hopefully next week.

2 weeks later
#562 5 years ago
Quoted from DaveH:

It has... Arrived!
So, who has built a pyramid protector?

I think mezel has one.

#585 5 years ago
Quoted from denmark71:

Has anyone playing got pro had the ball jump out of the right wire form ramp and get stuck between the ramp and the cabinet by the sword lock? Its happened twice to me and it requires taking off the glass because the ball gets seated pretty well there. Also, when the glass was off and the coin door is open, the flippers still function- is that new to the spike games?

No I haven't see the ball get stuck like that on the two Pros I play on location. And yes about the coin door. That changed on Spike.

#593 5 years ago
Quoted from markmon:

I haven't played mine in a couple weeks. And pdxmonkey who started this thread says he is ready to sell his. The game is pretty fun but there feels like limited things to do and it gets repetitive feeling pretty quick.

Haha. That was quick. I feel like it would take me a couple years at least before I decided to sell a new stern.

#603 5 years ago
Quoted from Tmezel:

I got to the Iron Throne tonight. About 2 billion in scoring. I had all the houses flashing on ball one, then started knocking them out, two at a time. After 4 tries got the dragon house finished which was the final house to the Iron Throne.

Awesome! Can't wait for my Pro! I would have the unfortunate luck of buying my first NIB when stern has weird delays in making their games. Haha. I plan to buy a lot of mods so keep them coming!

#623 5 years ago

I like how the shots are safe IF you make them. If you hit the posts your bill is out of control immediately. My scores are all over the place with this game. Once I get one in my house I'm sure I'll have to set it up harder, but not too worried about it. I think the shots on ST are safer as their entrances are further away from the player. I feel like that game more often than not I have very long ball times. Not a bad thing, just happens more often for me with ST than GOT.

#624 5 years ago

I also think that in a two game collection this and either TWD or MET would be a perfect pair.

#628 5 years ago
Quoted from TaylorVA:

Is there a reason to shoot those outside of a MB?

They are what earn you gold to spend in the mystery dragon shot or mystery throne shot. If you choose Lannister as your house they are worth more. Also the Lannister mode requires you to hit those targets to lit the mode shots that you need to make to complete the mode. Not sure they have a purpose in MB?

#655 5 years ago
Quoted from yuriijos:

Heck yeah that side armor looks killer! I'm sure the price will be pretty killer too.

Start saving your pennies!

#659 5 years ago
Quoted from Snailman:

^^^ this! I got the chance to play an LE for first time yesterday, and the mini-PF is underwhelming to say the least. I will say this: it's not an exploitable PF that someone can camp out all day on mini PF and rack up ridiculous risk-free points.
Castle Multiball is incredibly LAME, points-wise, compared to other difficult to achieve MB like Wall or Hand of the King.

See I don't think wall is that difficult to achieve that's why I don't think it should be that heavily weighted points wise.

#661 5 years ago
Quoted from frolic:

This is the problem with Stern's "no information" policy about software, that people are speculating that GoT is "done" at this point.
I personally don't think so, I'm sure we'll see more over the next year as the game is tweaked.

I see it as GOT came out with more polished code than previous releases but was in no way finished. We will see, but I wouldn't be surprised if GOT was the start of a new trend where we see games with more mature code from the get go and then updates for the next year or so to get a substantially completed game.

#669 5 years ago

Midnight madness multiball? Me likey. A lot of early issues look to be fixed. Great!

#672 5 years ago
Quoted from genex:

I heard it's 4:20 Madness

Even better!

#690 5 years ago

Best GOT topper ever? Yep. Step daughter got me this for xmas. Viserion!!!image_(resized).jpeg

#700 5 years ago

Has anyone played as house Tyrell and maxed out the stark mode? Wondering what the stark value can jump to with 5x combo multiplier running. Like 300 million?

#702 5 years ago
Quoted from Rob_G:

No idea
You are still waiting for your pro right? I don't think you will be disappointed at all because I'm still lovin' my pro A LOT even after 2 months of ownership. Great game!

Haha. I really just came to that strategy idea today. Played a pro on location near me all day. I don't have my pro yet.
I'm still looking at mid January.

#703 5 years ago

What about this? Does anyone know how many names are on Arya's list in stark mode?

#708 5 years ago
Quoted from cornycrunch:

75m * 25 = 1.875b.

Don't think it's possible to run stark mode with 25x going. Would love to see that on video. I just don't think 5x playfield runs long enough to get that done. Even without missing a shot. But 75 million is the base max value of stark mode?

#710 5 years ago
Quoted from markmon:

It's pretty easy to get to the game of thrones iron throne.

I was trying to get Iron Throne all day yesterday and didn't even come close, haha. Also, have you gotten iron throne as Greyjoy? I think that will be really tough to do. I couldn't even get close to Hand of the King using Greyjoy as my house.

#712 5 years ago
Quoted from beelzeboob:

And I couldn't get close using any other house.

I recommend concentrating on houses Baratheon Martel stark and Lannister to get you to hand of the King. Also try and play Lannister during multiball and stack Martel and Baratheon together as they have very similar shots. Stark is easy to play on its own and complete.

#714 5 years ago
Quoted from cornycrunch:

Oh, not that I've done it. As far as the combo part is concerned, Greyjoy helps in that aspect since you're forced to hit loops and ramps before you even think about cashing out. I have actually done a 375m cashout that way (1x playfield, 5x combo).

this is basically what I was getting at. If you pick tyrell, the power lets you use the inlanes to light all shots for combo multipliers. So, if you start the stark mode, hit the lit inlane, then hit the center ramp, and on the return switch your lit inlane back to the right, each time to pass through the lit inlane, the center ramp will relight for combo multiplier. So you can do this 375m cashout of stark much easier if using Tyrell as your house. I am thinking that you can even get a 2x playfield as well, but that might be pushing it. Would be pretty sweet to cash in a 750 million mode though haha.

#716 5 years ago
Quoted from LOTR_breath:

I think the highest cash out I've made on Stark was around 350M. I do recall playing as Tyrell and playing Stark mode. It felt like a strange cadence with the right flipper button. Shoot shot, which moves lit inlane to the wrong side, so hit right flipper button again, then make shot. Repeat. So right right, right right, right right. Just felt weird.

yeah agreed. I had the same feeling. I think tyrell can be a great house for strategy if you are on point. Essentially you could have 5x multipliers going at almost all times, if you keep the ball moving. Not to mention if you get 5x field running, then string together some combos during a mode. Holy mega points batman.

#719 5 years ago
Quoted from Pdxmonkey:

I got to Iron Throne last night as Greyjoy on a location pro

Dang, that is impressive. what was the final score you had for that game? Also, what does the game do after completing Iron Throne? Do you just start the whole game over again?

#720 5 years ago
Quoted from markmon:

GoT has one of the easiest to reach wizard modes of any recently released stern in my opinion.

I agree that hand of the king is easy to reach if Greyjoy is not your house, but I don't think that is really a wizard mode. More of a mini wizard mode, with Iron Throne being the one true wizard mode in the game. However, if you are getting HOTK with regularity and playing as Greyjoy, that is impressive as I wasn't able to get more than a couple houses complete as GJ.

#722 5 years ago
Quoted from markmon:

I'm talking about iron throne not hand of the King. I get to hand of the king about 25% of the time on grey joy. Hotk is much easier to reach than, for example, kobiyashi maru.

Okay I see what you are saying. So, what happens after Iron Throne is over? Is it like ST and the modes start over but are different than the first time you went through them? Would be cool if another wizard mode was made once your house had the Iron Throne and your house defended the Throne against every other house.

#729 5 years ago
Quoted from ZZZ_spy_hunter:

Has there been any word for when the pros will come back in stock?

Mid January. I ordered mine back in November. Still no game. Confirmed mid January with Tilt in OH.

#731 5 years ago
Quoted from TheLaw:

Putting us to sleep...let's go already!

You're telling me buddy. Haha. My first NIB too. It's safe to say I was ready to pick this up the day after I paid for it! Haha. Oh well.

#734 5 years ago
Quoted from TheLaw:

Never had to wait more than a couple days with Trent. Crap I ordered mine in December so I wonder how many are ahead of me. Lots of waiting it seems.

Everyone I know local to me gets all theirs from him and they said the same thing. I really think this was a fluke one off situation for him and some other distros.

#739 5 years ago
Quoted from DaveH:

I don't think it's at the distro level. It is at Stern. Gary owned up to it, and hopefully they can get it under control soon.

For sure. I didn't mean it that way. Just saying certain distros' shipments were caught in the delays at stern. Tilt was one apparently.

#741 5 years ago

It seems like right now people are almost getting IT a lot, but rarely getting there. I think they could easily add some extra objectives to get there, or have a final wizard mode if you complete IT, WHC, BW multiball, and Battle the Wall MB

#745 5 years ago
Quoted from Delta9:

Has anybody figerd out what time the secert multiball ball goes off ?

Midnight I believe. I think I saw someone mentioned what happens in another thread but I quickly put hen on ignore so I couldn't read their details of what happens during it. Haha

#752 5 years ago
Quoted from genex:

So max value is 75M on Arya's enemies ramp shots - then you cash out at orbit (l or r). So with 5x playfield and 5x multipliers (25x combined) a theoretical 1.875 Billion shot is available. Not sure if you are Tyrell if you can get 6x combo and thus a 30x combined, which would be 2.25 Billion on a single shot
Can someone do this on purpose and record it? we tried but only could get 900M (12x combined)

I just don't think the playfield x timer is long enough to get this done. You would have to get 4x going before the mode, start the mode. then get a 4-5 mode shots in before your 4x ran out, then hit ram until 5x, also before losing your combo x, and go back to mode shots to max out and finish before the 5x playfield ran out. This would be a truly impressive feat.

For anyone that thinks this game is too easy, I say we make an uber Wizard checklist:

1. Get over 2 billion on Stark House battle.

More to come after I get my game and I can really sink my teeth into it.

#754 5 years ago
Quoted from beelzeboob:

I hope you have a good dentist.

I do. Never had one cavity. I hope my GOT isn't made of sugar.

#760 5 years ago
Quoted from Eskaybee:

Sounds like they found the pin. Will find out for sure tomorrow hopefully. Lol

Glad to hear it dude!

#772 5 years ago
Quoted from bellbrand:

Have you played both? Why did you decide to go with pro. Just curious

I can't speak for SKB, but I went Pro because when I played one all night I had so much fun I had to have one. When I looked into the price difference between the Pro and Prem, I couldn't justify it as I would rather just get another game. Had I only had one spot to fill, probably would've thought harder about a Prem/LE

#800 5 years ago
Quoted from beatmaster:

i'm gonna ask my distributor that's for sure.

That or get the pyramid mod from Mezel. That looks pretty cool.

#803 5 years ago
Quoted from Eskaybee:

I agree; im really interested to see how the Prem/LE plays - the right ramp on the pro is HELLA FUN to hit. Not sure how the sword insert plays a role into the rules as ive only seen values of around 5-7 mil tops for it.

Collecting swords allows you to increase your playfield multipliers. If you don't collect any swords the max playfield multiplier you can get is 2x. Collect a sword it unlocks 3x, and so on.

#806 5 years ago
Quoted from Eskaybee:

when you guys talk about pf multipliers, are you referring to the multipliers shown on the dmd or the 2x/3x/4x/5x pf insert multipliers?
I had the multipliers up to 10x on the dmd, not exactly sure how to increase them yet or how/when they reset back to 1x.

PF multipliers (inserts) come from hitting the battering ram. The ones you see on the dmd are the combo multipliers. Each time to make a shot that has a flashing red arrow, it increases the multiplier of every other shot in the game and vice versa. Those can get to 5x on their own. Then if you're at 5x playfield, your max shot value can be 25x.

#808 5 years ago
Quoted from Eskaybee:

Think i got it. Then, you use the sword insert to increase the potential of your multipliers and the battering ram to collect so to speak?

Right. So at the start of your game, the max PF multiplier you can get is 2x I believe so you can hit the ram 100x and it will never get past 2x. Beating a house lights sword. Collect the sword, now the next level of PF multiplier is unlocked. Also, when you have PF multipliers going, hitting the ram keeps them running like hitting the bell I'm ACDC. So if you're about to lose them, hit the ram really quick to keep them going.

#816 5 years ago
Quoted from Eskaybee:

I think I'm getting the hang of it
Factory settings except 3 tilt warnings instead of 2. Medium tilt.
Though, I'm not sure how to light iron throne. I was fighting I believe the 3rd dragon so I believe iron throne lights after beating all 3 dragons?
In either case, something I'd like to see in a future update is more effects and sounds when you get WIC mb.

Wow. Great score! I've only been able to muster a 1.5 billion score so far. So much fun! Thanks for the heads up on the shaker and sub. Those were my go to mods I wanted to get right off the bat. Is the sub easy to install too? I don't have any DMD games. This will be my first.

Quoted from Eskaybee:

Super easy! get the polk audio sub thats plastered all over pinside; probably best to wait til its on sale so you can get it for like $70 or something. You will need some speaker wire and either 2 alligator clips (what i used) or solder the connection. But basically run your speaker wire from the sub through the back of the bottom part of the pin through one of the opening and through the air vent shield over to the sub speaker in the cabinet. There's 2 terminals, positive and negative. When youre looking at the terminals, the furthest one is your NEG (-) and the closer terminal to the coin box is the POS (+). Hook up your alligator clips accordingly then hook up your NEG & POS to the INPUT of the polk sub. Flip the sub to auto and adjust the volume to your liking. Its super easy. And the shaker was extremely easy to install, moreso than previous pre-drilled sterns. I got my shaker from Pinballlife - had easy to follow instructions to go with it. Be sure you buy the spike system shaker
Enjoy; i got 1+ bil 4 times last night all with house of baratheon LOL. Gotta dig into some of the other houses today

Baratheon is where I get most of my big scores too. Also greyjoy can be massive if your completing your modes efficiently and comboing shots effectively.

#828 5 years ago
Quoted from TheLaw:

It's not standard ramps then orbit cash out?

Nope. Make sure and get rid of all the purple shots before cashing it out. Pretty sure hitting the orbits before getting all the purple shots just increases the jackpot buildup.

#830 5 years ago

Dude. Stay with Tyrell and see how big you can cash out stark mode for. We you're mission is over 1 billion from stark alone, should you choose to accept it.

#833 5 years ago
Quoted from Eskaybee:

Wow good idea. Maybe try and build a 3, 4, or even 5X multiplier first?!

I've been wondering how deep down the rabbit hole you can go with that for a while.

#880 5 years ago
Quoted from Mudflaps:

How long are the ball times? Is GOT just a high scoring game due to code, or do long ball times contribute to billion-plus scores?
I'm asking because I'm still considering options for my next game and I'm not interested in LOTR type gameplay. GOT seems like a ton of fun.

I would say that a 1-2 billion game takes less than 10 minutes if playing alone. Can't speak to some of the 10+ billion scores as I haven't even come close to that yet.

#897 5 years ago
Quoted from Eskaybee:

I've tried, and want to accomplish one day, going with Tyrell; then, complete Targaryan before HOTK as Targaryan increases all base value shots during HOTK. I wonder if the reward is worth the risk.
Speaking of Tyrell, I haven't quite followed, what exactly do the inlanes do? Do they just boost the starting combo to 3x? Or does it do more? (Hard to read dmd when the game is so fast lol).

Pretty sure it always lights every shot for multipliers and increases every multiplier by one.

#931 5 years ago
Quoted from Eskaybee:

So I got the sub hooked up and bass at +105 and volume cranking since wife and kids are outside. Wife comes into the room to grab a soda and says, "wow! That's really loud". All I could say was "thanks!" And think about this in the back of my mind....

#942 5 years ago
Quoted from PanzerFreak:

Reading all the feedback on here about GOT's rules is making me want to buy a premium User "cornycrunch" mentioned something about "Targaryen III". Does that mean that the modes have different levels to them such as those in Star Trek?
Also, does the ruleset in GOT make you work the entire playfield in a similar way as Keith Johnson's rules in LOTR? I tend to prefer objective based games and Keith's ruleset for LOTR offers one of the best. When I saw work the playfield I mean are there modes that require a certain number of shots to be hit in sequence and incorporate the mini playfield?

No to the first question. The Targaryean mode have three levels to it (maybe four) to just complete that mode once. All the other modes just have one level right now. There are some modes that are similar, but for the most part they utilize all the shots in the game. If you have the prem/LE from what I understand is that each mode uses the upper playfield too.

#945 5 years ago
Quoted from PanzerFreak:

Awesome. Thanks for the info guys. The Targaryean mode sounds like a fun and deep mode.
Is the button on the lockdown integrated fairly well at this point?

I really don't think it is. The main use is he iron bank which, long story short, is pretty stupid. Basically you hit the button before you drain to cash it in for minimal points. No strategy what so ever.

Also another cool thing is if you choose greyjoy as your house all the modes play different and require more shots. This adds another level of depth to the game.

Excited to see where this game is at next year. Promising start and Dwight seems committed to getting this to be one of the recent greats.

#949 5 years ago
Quoted from PanzerFreak:

I didn't know that about the Greyjoy mode, that's a pretty slick feature. Does selecting any of the other houses change the rules?

The others just have different advantages to picking them, but all the modes play the same with the other houses.

#952 5 years ago

Yeah I know that you can do that too, but it also resets all your multipliers. Getting 40 million for the iron bank, or 100s of millions by staying with your multiplied MB shots. Even if you drain out of MB and are back to single ball play, it's still not good to hit the button cause you can just start another mode and if you're still running 5x playfield, those shots are going to be worth way more than cashing in the iron bank. If the button didn't reset the multipliers, I would agree, but I still don't think it's worth it.

#954 5 years ago
Quoted from jkashani:

Pro vs. Premium/LE thoughts on game play etc. Strongly considering purchasing. Only played the pro and loved it.

Then get one! I'm sure you would like the Prem/LE just as much if not more so it comes down to whether you want to spend the extra money. You can always get a prem/LE later if you decide you would rather have one of those.

#958 5 years ago

Chuck, are still waiting on yours also?

Yup. Fingers crossed I get good news this week.

#962 5 years ago
Quoted from The_Dude_Abides:

They haven't in the past that I've seen. However, it would only make sense to fix the issue for the pins they are making now to ship out. I mean it negatively affects flow and the pin was designed by SR. It should have a smooth loop...

As far as the fix for pins already shipped it looked like a PIA to do. Am I wrong about that?

Definitely looks like a PIA to do. I'm just curious if the top lanes are really causing the issue since the Pro is not having those issues.

#969 5 years ago
Quoted from jints56:

Which theme do you like better? I had ST Pro and really enjoyed it, but not a big fan of the theme and sold it. Picked up GOT Pro instead.

Agree. Comes down to theme for me. GOT wins.

#980 5 years ago

Yeah I agree on the use of GOT for league/tournament play. I think it can be set up to play faster. I want it to stay in tournament banks though because there are a lot of different ways you can score big on it and I think it could be a great tournament game.

#984 5 years ago
Quoted from LOTR_breath:

On that particular game I was playing as Tyrell.

Nice work. This is the house I think can really blow the game up if you're concentrating on making consecutive shots and ranking up multipliers.

#986 5 years ago
Quoted from The_Dude_Abides:

You hit the nail on the head. Pitch the game a little higher move I lanes to wide open and you shouldn't have too many problems. Still not a short ball time pin but pitched high those targets will drain missed shots very fast.

For sure. There is one at a bar near me that has long ass ball times. Then there is one we have used for multiple tournaments that punishes you every time you miss. Literally every time.

#992 5 years ago
Quoted from markmon:

FYI, I backhand that dragon shot regularly. And the video mode can now be disabled in the game menus so you don't have to skip it.

Are you making that backhand from a trap? If so, can you post a quick video of it? Would love to learn that.

#993 5 years ago
Quoted from Eskaybee:

I need to verify but I don't think the Tyrell inlane progressively increments the combo multipliers. Sometimes a sound is hears when it rolls over the lit inlane and sometimes it doesnt. I think the times it does it starts the multipliers at 3x. And the times it doesn't no effect is taken. Need to confirm this.
And to my post above. Forgot about tyrell, I'm sure that's a popular choice too for competition.

Ahh. That would make sense, but I haven't been able to really see what Tyrell does yet. That would definitely make it less valuable then.

#996 5 years ago
Quoted from markmon:


No. There's no way I can film this while playing. Just trap the ball and try the shot a few times.

I have a lot. I have only been able to do it on the fly. I'm guessing the spot target on the right side of the entrance is sitting a little to the side because the closest I can get is for it to rattle in the entrance but not make it all the way up the shot.

#998 5 years ago
Quoted from markmon:

Maybe bend the target out of the way?

Sorry only been able to play on location so far, but I plan to do just that when mine arrives at home.

#1005 5 years ago
Quoted from DefaultGen:

I didn't even notice there were lights back there for the lanes until quite a few games in and I thought it was ridiculous once I saw them. Not a big deal, but could've been handled like WOZ with more visible lights.

I have never played a LE, but those lanes are very important for getting to one of the main Multiballs. Hopefully a mod gets made to see those easier.

#1011 5 years ago

Holy moly. Believe it or not I just beat Targaryean house on a location Pro for the first time. That last level of the mode is ridiculous. You seriously have to hit like 15-20 shots to complete that last level. I was like, "fuck you khaleesi, die already!"

#1033 5 years ago
Quoted from capguntrooper:

I LOVE FIRE, one of my favs actually. those two long ass ramp target hits were just so much fun to me.

Agreed. They are so tough but satisfying. Just sucks they have no purpose except for extra balls.

#1034 5 years ago

I really do think GOT is gonna stand the test of time even with the uber elite players. Ive played it a lot already and I am still seeing new possible scoring strategies. Very fun to analyze each house and what they bring to the table. Once I get mine, I'm really going dive into each house. Also, if I ever get iron throne I'll be surprised just from the shear difficulty of completing Targaryean house.

#1036 5 years ago
Quoted from TheLaw:

But for sure I was having trouble hitting the ram with left flipper, didn't really bother me though.

I do think it's frustrating that the ram doesn't always register when you hit it, but I think it's just a different type of bash toy. I don't think it should register every time. Should have to nail that sucker.

#1040 5 years ago
Quoted from TaylorVA:

Have been playing a pro on location and have grown to really enjoy the game. Actually started watching the show because of the pin and have binged the first two seasons this past week.

Hell yeah dude!! The stark mode in the pin is super badass once you've seen all the shows.

#1056 4 years ago
Quoted from Rarehero:

One of the things that's bumping me on GOT - the rules don't seem intuitive. I'm pretty good at picking up rules and nuance...but when the game asks me if I want to battle one house, two houses, or pass...how am I supposed to know what the point of those choices are? I'm just like "whatever" and slap the button.

I think you first need to learn what each house mode requires to beat it. Selecting two houses to play at once do not change the shots to complete either house. They just run simultaneously. So if I stack two houses I try to do two houses that require similar shots to complete. Martell and Baratheon, stark and Tyrell, Lannister and greyjoy. I rarely pass because even if you play one mode at a time, you can get big points from the mode of you're making calculated shots.

#1062 4 years ago
Quoted from beelzeboob:

I actually try to light all the houses first and get BFTW multiball lined up.

See this is why I love his game. What you said here and what SKB mentioned in his response above. I hadn't even considered do those strategies. Pretty badass how many different ways you can attack this game.

#1068 4 years ago
Quoted from AJ51:

Did you get your game yet????

Distro said end of this month.

#1073 4 years ago
Quoted from colonel_caverne:

how to complete targaryen?

It has three different stages. One for each dragon. The first stage you have to hit three shots and then the dragon shot to complete. To start the second stage you have to hit the center ramp again. Rinse and repeat for the next two stages but it just takes a lot more shots to complete stage 2, and even more for stage three. Stage three takes around 20 shots to complete.

#1080 4 years ago
Quoted from happilymarried05:

go to melissa at cointaker. way better customer service, more professional type layout

I am sure cointaker is a great distro, but I am perfectly happy with the service I am getting. Stern encountered delays, nothing my distro can do about it. Plus I like to help support businesses as local to me as possible if I can.

#1083 4 years ago
Quoted from colonel_caverne:

Thanks. What is The best way to succeed? Alone? With battle? With blackwater multiball? I think it re-starts where you have lost The ball, correct?

I really have only tried to complete the mode during one sesh. That day I was playing it alone so I would know exactly what I was shooting for. The third stage is so long that I would recommend getting to the third mode and completing at least the first wave of shots. then once the dragon shot is lit, start MB. then during MB you will naturally pick off a lot more of the shots. I can see a long enough BW MB getting you through the last level of the house.

The multipliers on the display correspond to each major shot in the game (left loop, kickback, center ramp, right ramp, right loop). each time you make a shot, all other shots should be lit for 2x as long as the red arrows on the playfield are flashing (these are called combo multipliers). for each shot you hit with a flashing red arrow, the remaining shots' multipliers should increase by one. if at any point the red arrows go out without you hitting one, your multipliers go back to 1x.

Now, if you have any playfield multipliers running as well, all you shot multipliers on the DMD will be multiplied by that amount as well. So lets say you have 2x playfield multiplier running, and you have 2x from your combo multipliers going too. those DMD multipliers will all say 4x so if you hit any of the main shots, whatever that shot awards you, it will be multiplied by 4.

#1085 4 years ago
Quoted from Eskaybee:

it showed the dragon shot combo multiplier at 20X!

Here is where I get confused. Is there a limit to the combo multipliers? I thought I read that 5x combo multipliers is it, and 5x playfield is it, for a maximum multiplied shot of 25x. Could totally be wrong. These are the mysteries I plan to unfold when I get it home, haha.

#1086 4 years ago
Quoted from Eskaybee:

Why did I miss that shot!!

Shouldn't have looked up, haha. Should've just nailed it and have no idea why your score jump an insane amount. haha.

#1089 4 years ago
Quoted from colonel_caverne:

I already saw 6x on The dmd.
So theses multipliers are time limited, as long as you succeed to keep red arrows lit.
I need to pratice to see your explanations.

All multipliers are timed. If you keep hitting red arrows and never let those flashing red arrows go out, you will essentially keep most if not all the main shots multiplied by 5. Now to keep the playfield multipliers going you have to keep hitting the ram shot like the bell in ACDC. So I would be really hard to keep a 25x shot available for very long.

#1091 4 years ago
Quoted from colonel_caverne:

I suppose it's show Time during MB.
So i have dreamed my 6x?

Nope. You probably had 2x playfield and 3x combo multipliers for a combined 6x.

#1098 4 years ago
Quoted from FrostyMug:

I am so jealous of you guys/girls that have GOT pins!

Me too.

#1100 4 years ago
Quoted from Eskaybee:

If I'm understanding the rules right, the max you can get the combo multiplier to is 5x and the max the pf multiplier can get to is 5x. But my original assessment of house Tyrell was wrong and that the HOTK inlane can bump the combo multiplier by 1x if available from collecting the swords. Additionally, HOTK mb gives the inlane boost to all houses so during that mode, you can build it to 6x with any house. Then add the pf multiplier and you can get shots as high as 30x!! That sound about right?

Oh cool. I was wondering if the HOTK could push it to 6x. Nice!

#1200 4 years ago

Does beating Targaryean with greyjoy as your house give you anything? IMO, it should give you Unlimited ZJs for the rest of the game it's so hard.

I got to HOTK using greyjoy last night on location. I was pretty proud of that. Although I think even with the add a ball, I drained out wicked fast.

#1214 4 years ago

Just got winter has come for the first time. I feel like I had 6 balls going for like 2 mins and my score for the mode was like 30 mil. Haha. Gonna def pay more attention to the mode next time.

So had a game today where I was rolling the 4x and 5x pf multiplier with blackwater SJP lit and nailing the ram left and right! Score from that bw mb alone was 1.3 bil! Good times.

Nice work! Did you have PF multipliers going before the MB started, or did you go after them during MB?

#1274 4 years ago

My GOT Pro is expected to land at trents tomorrow! Hoping to pick up Wednesday or Thursday baby! My first new game, and I'm a tad bit pumped for this. Also I have never seen Trent's operation. Excited to see that as well.

#1276 4 years ago

What code version are you running? I think a previous version messed up the skill shot. Should register every time you go through the lit lane. Just like IM.

#1279 4 years ago

Hmm. Maybe update to 1.22 and see if that helps. I think when I saw that issue the game was on 1.19

#1312 4 years ago
Quoted from spandol:

I'm lost here. My plunger shots go into the elevator. There is an actual skill shot using the plunger? I always just hit the action button because I thought there wasn't a skill shot.

We are talking about the Pro. No skill shot on LE or Prem

#1314 4 years ago
Quoted from spandol:

Ahh, thanks for clearing that up chuckwurt.

Sure thing. Hopefully they add one to the Prem/LE and hopefully a super skill for each. Like a really hard super skill shot.

#1316 4 years ago
Quoted from capguntrooper:

I prefer the elevator upper play field shot every time to build on my CMB, but I will sometimes plunge into pops to collect some points then drain before auto saver goes off to auto launch to upper play field

But what if there was a super skill shot that was not only lucrative, but really challenging?

#1320 4 years ago
Quoted from capguntrooper:

skill shot could be a rotating target shot on upper play field....

That's a good idea. With a really short timer to make it harder.

Quoted from markp99:

I played a Pro in location. It was a complete wall-to-wall dimple-fest. I actually thought at first it was just a really bad orange-peal type effect from the CC process. Seems like these dimples, compounded with many more layers of dimples could actually cause the CC to fail over time.
Maybe the CC was not fully cured before this copy was released to the location? My ~20yr old JP has a bazillion plays, but beyond the normal swirls and scratches, not a single dimple.

Actually your JP has become one giant dimple. That's why you cannot see any. from my research, dimples on new games are unavoidable. Unless you go the playfield protector route like Cap mentioned.

#1370 4 years ago

If other Pro owners are looking for a club thread down the road for people discussing and sharing everything GOT pro, they probably won't find this thread.

#1416 4 years ago

Hey guys, after playing for an hour or so last night I noticed that my ram was having trouble traveling on its track smoothly, even with square straight on hits from the right flipper.

Please note I set my game up really steep, so I'm wondering it that has a hand in it. Also, I noted that I was sometimes getting credit for two ram hits after only one physical hit. I would hit the ram once but the code would register two hits back to back.

I'm running 1.21, and this game is amazing.

#1418 4 years ago

Thanks brother. You're welcome to come play at my house any time. Might have a get together later this month with local pinheads. I'll let you know.

#1420 4 years ago

No worries. Maybe next time. Thanks again for your service and all the help you're giving us here.

#1433 4 years ago

Is there a way to prop the playfield up more vertical like classic games so I can take a look at my ram mech?

#1446 4 years ago

Also, I was able to fix my battering ram issue. The switch registering twice for each hit was a switch adjustment. The travel of the ram itself was fixed by taking it apart, loosening the screws that screwed the axels to the ram mech just a bit, dropped a tiny bit of zoom oil on each axel, and also on the ram feet that go through the playfield and also on the sled that attaches to the bottom of the playfield. Also, when reattaching the sled the underside of the playfield, I didn't screw it in so tight. It was really tight from the factory.

Smooth as butter now.

#1450 4 years ago
Quoted from coasterguy:

Thanks, you've inspired me to look at my ram as well. I was hoping it would work itself out over time but, I have missed many awards from it not registering so I am going to look into that tonight. The rest of my game is now working well. Right flipper adjustment was in the switches and the code took care of a couple small bugs. Pretty amazing game.

Not hard at all to get the ram off the game to inspect. My rams wheels were not spinning freely if I flicked them with my finger. They were binding a bit. I think mostly from over tightening the axels. Once I got them moving freely I was good to go. Now shots from the left flipper, right flipper, shots that graze the ram from richocets, and shots that don't hit the ram dead on are knocking the ram up there to hit the target.

#1452 4 years ago
Quoted from Groo:

I like my ram right where it is. I have to get a pretty solid shot on it but I think that is intended.

Agreed. But mine wasn't budging from a full force straight on shot from the right flipper. No way that's intended. Now mine is working like the 3 other GOTs I've played.

#1454 4 years ago

Midnight madness is Hilarious. Nuff said.

#1457 4 years ago

Hey guys. I wanted to tackle WHC multiball today. What's the best way to get to that if that's my only goal?

#1460 4 years ago

Just got to WHC pretty easily. If you pass on each battle unless you're about to start MB, you can get there quickly. Complete the hurry ups for GJ, Lan, Stark, and Martell and you're there. Those are the safest WIC hurry ups to shoot for IMO.

#1462 4 years ago
Quoted from Astropin:

So I backhanded the dragon shot yesterday for the first time......then I did it again in the same game! Ball on the fly both times, I don't think it's possible from a cradle.

I've done it twice from a cradle. You literally have to hit it perfectly. Zero room to miss it at all. I've been doing on the fly more and more.

One thing I found this morning is hitting the drops from the right flipper usually had a safe carrum to the Tyrell targets. Good way to double dip there.

#1472 4 years ago

Agreed. Seems like a lot of clips with no sound associated with them.

#1474 4 years ago
Quoted from TheLaw:

It's like when you stack some shit and then start Wall MB and feeling a little pumped as the horn goes off 2 times...and then 7 seconds of silence.

Or when you hit the first Martel shot and you're all jacked up after hearing "I demand a trial by combat", then the next two hits are tiny video clips of people standing around saying nothing to each other. Waah waah. Haha
