I tried A-C-S and the DMD said "Be sure to drink your Ovaltine." Cool!
Sorry, I was just teasing. No Christmas Story Easter Egg, it just reminded me of Ralphie. But it would be a nice homage. Maybe "Be sure to play your Stern"?
I just brought my GOTLE home last night and I can't play it.
I hope I can get a replacement Node 1 board before league night on Saturday.
After market shakers are fine, just be sure to remove any capacitor you might see. And don't install a motor controller like I did.
Instead of hearing generic woman say "House X", I'd love to have a short, memorable quote from a major character from that house. For example, instead of "House Greyjoy", you might hear Balon Greyjoy say "What is dead may never die". I mean, the name of the house is right there on the DMD...
Quoted from markp99:
Callouts are a challenge - Example: You need to replace the Arya's original 1.081sec "House Stark" callout (0x4B9) with an equivalent length clip. The Hound's "House Stark" callout (0x2AF) is 1.795sec - would fit, but a longer phrase might not.
That's not Arya (or Maisie Williams for that matter).
I've been trying to do sound substitutions around 0x400-0x600, with no luck. The sound is correct when I preview it, but once imported it plays back at double speed. Has anyone else tried modding this ROM yet?
Quoted from Snailman:
Whoa. Seriously!? These are all in there? That's some good stuff we're missing out on!
From my notes:
201-3FA are The Hound (505 callouts)
3FB-600 are the woman (517)
601-761 are callouts from the show (352)
762-786 are music
There's about a 90% overlap between the callouts that The Hound and the woman do. In a perfect world, there would be a setting to let you pick who does the callouts.
Quoted from Apollyon:
Can you detail some of the quotes from the show that are in there but not in the latest code. I'm very interested in this as this is the biggest gripe for me. Great callouts from the show would really help immerse you in the game.
You can hear them yourself. Load the ROM into PinballBrowser, start at 0x601 and enjoy.
Actually...let's crowdsource this. Here's 0x601-610:
601 - Samwell: "A maester of the citadel, chained and sworn"
602 - Jaqen H'ghar: "A man is not Jaqen H'ghar"
603 - Varys: "A monarch who can intimidate the high lords and inspire the people"
604 - Arya: "A real killer"
605 - Varys: "A ruler loved by millions with a powerful army and the right family name"
606 - Samwell: "A sworn brother of the Night's Watch, ever faithful."
607 - Daario: "All rulers are either butchers or meat"
608 - Jaqen H'ghar: "All that makes a girl who she is, forever"
609 - ???: "Almost that ??"
60A - ???: "Jenda's honorable" (phonetic)
60B - Jon Snow: "And he has more giants, he has more mammoths"
60C - Tyrion: "And just now, kings are dying like flies."
60D - ???: "And now his watch has ended"
60E - (many): "And now his watch has ended"
60F - Samwell: "And now his watch has ended"
610 - Oberyn Martell: "And tell him the Lannisters aren't the only ones who pay their debts"
Quoted from LOTR_breath:
What version do you have of pinball browser and where do you get it? The version I have doesn't seem to work with .spk files.
I'm running 5.76.
Has anybody installed a Sigma display in a GOT? The LED DMD part # is the same as for pre-Spike Sterns, so I was thinking it should work (?).
Quoted from swampfire:
ColorDMD - good idea. I'll ask and report back.
Randy didn't reply to my PM, but he did reply to a friend of mine. Apparently ColorDMD is sensitive to the timing of the data, and it's different on Spike than on SAM. I want to say I've noticed a difference in DMD framerate too, but I could be wrong about that. Anyway, it's nontrivial to add Spike support to ColorDMD. Bummer.
Quoted from VolunteerPin:
Thinking about grabbing an LE. Any thoughts on the LE vs the pro? I've heard some people say pro is more fun but I've never seen either version so this purchased is based purely on reputation.
Lots of thoughts...I think it's a very personal preference. I played both a lot before deciding on an LE, and I'd suggest the same if you can do it. A lot of us think the Premium/LE is more fun. No wrong answer...it's a great game in either form.
If you've played Black Knight and liked it, you'll probably enjoy the upper playfield. The left orbit dominates the discussion but it's a non-issue for me. The 2-level VUK can take some effort to get working perfectly, it just takes some patience. The rest of it is normal Pro/LE differences - the light show, art and rails. I'm normally a hardcore Pro buyer, but I changed it up for once and I'm glad I did.
Quoted from JMK:
I've just had my GoT premium for a short while, love the game; but I'm finding about 50% of the balls landing in the throne (via the mystery shot) are rolling off the throne as opposed to saying on the throne itself. I'm sure this has already been covered somewhere here in detail but is this an easy fix?
It's very fixable. There are several different solutions posted here, including mine:
The key is to slow the ball down, I think.
I have EBs enabled, but I did get my first HOTK, about 800M. Finished with 1.2MB. Really loving this pin.
Quoted from ukwizardMike:
I have a pro and have been following this thread for a while now.. Any of you guys know if you can change the flipper power?? [...] Yes, I have changed the coil power to 'hard' in the settings but this didn't seem to make any difference. Any help would be appreciated as this is totally ruining my game !!!
Check your EOS switches. Make sure they don't engage until the flipper reaches the End of it Stroke. Good luck!
Who's going to be the first one to mod their GoT to blow cold air during WIC and WHC?
Quoted from Ballsofsteel:
personally, i've determined that GOT pro is the best flowing modern game stern has made for both SAM and Spike systems. no vuks, just ramp and orbit madness, and combo sensations.
The VUK on the Prem/LE only comes into play in a few situations:
- Upper PF: start of ball
- Throne: collecting Mystery/EB or starting WMB
Anything that puts you on the Throne, you would have been idling behind the post in the dragon lane on the Pro anyway. So the VUK ends up not being much of a "flow factor", unless you're completely obsessed with completing left orbits AND you don't want to do the capgun mod. FWIW, I decided that the game is excellent as it is, dropping the ball into the pops on a good left orbit shot.
Totally agree with this, it’s psychological. Because the center shot is hidden somewhat on the Pre/LE, the angle of the shot is less obvious. I look at the flipper when I’m going for that shot, not the ramp. I’ve had people tell me that the Targaryen shot is easier on my LE than on their pro, but again I think this is mental more than physical.
Quoted from 85vett:
It's the identical part number so the ramps are 100% identical. Due to build tolerance differences some aren't as smooth as others but that is in no way a pro vs Prem/LE difference. If you struggle to hit the center ramp on a prem/LE but can on a pro it's almost fully a physiological reason.
Question for Pre/LE owners: can you make the right ramp from a cradle on the right flipper, or only on the fly? I think I need to tweak mine a little.
I installed a ColorDMD in my GOT last week. It’s a huge improvement, even more than any other of my CDMD pins.
Play both, and form your own opinion - that’s the only one that matters. But that topic has been discussed to death if you search the thread.
GOT does indeed kick ass, and I play mine a lot. I just wish I got to HOTK more often.
It’s cool to see folks trying the Prem/LE. I took my GOTLE to SFGE so more people could experience the upper playfield and the interactive throne. It was one of the busier games at the show - people were playing 3-4 player games every time I went by.
I think Steve Ritchie’s upper playfield design on GOT is the best one ever for a DMD. It’s really enjoyable to play - you can trap up, and it’s great during Multiball. I respect the love for the Pro, but I’d never swap out my LE.
