Quoted from frenchmarky:

Just noticed another artwork difference on that 'Demar' prototype, it appears this one is a considerable goof that hadn't been caught yet. On the horizontal artwork along the 5X5 chest lamps that correspond to the colors of the side targets, the two top rows should be yellow, then blue. On the proto it's BLUE first... and then WHITE!

Nice catch!

Just got three cows on the same casino run... I've had quite the dry spell lately so I think she is being generous.

Any updates on the LED special code?

Wait do you get something for cows!?

A cow on the tumblers awards an instant special for 500M and a credit. This is different from the usual Special award since you have to cash out the casino run to collect a regular special and don't collect if you go bust.

In the process of moving, then need to find someone local who can grab the file off the chip.

So, I am Officially 13 months into my Jack*Bot ownership and simply put, I fucking LOVE this game! It's been one of my grails since I really started following pinball in 2018, and every day I grow more in love with it. In my small collection including a Getaway, T2, and SFII, this is still by far my favorite. Many of my non-Pinball Family and Friends really enjoy the overall simplicity and game play as its relatively easy to understand. This game is 100% bolted down, and will NEVER be leaving my Home!

The only real major issues I had was the Shooter rod / ramp vortex issues which I've since resolved and threaded on the Pinbot Vortex Ramp threads - Plus had an issue of constantly blowing F107 which ended up being related to the Pop Bumper GI, and was resolved once I rebuilt all three Pops.

Many upgrades I've done which makes a huge difference include: ColorDMD, Color Matched NG Comets for the inserts + all Cool White for the GI, Titans, Matrix Lighting for Both eyes and Game Saucer (The eyes were just way too dark), Speaker Lights, Rebuilt Flippers and Coils, Rebuilt Pop Bumpers with Comet LED Red Rings with clear caps (The Pics don't do justice), Mirrored Sideblades, and a playfield protector... However, one of the best improvements that really sets this game apart, is a PinSound board with a Klipsch 12" Powered Sub. I was super bummed to find out there weren't any custom soundtracks... So I made my own including many gambling songs and others that really fit the games motif and bill... Some of which include: Daft Punk, The Gambler, Ace of Spades, Overtones Gambling Man, Notorious BIG, Guns and Roses, and Jamiroquai. All the music orchestrations are completed, and now I just need to work on upgrading the call outs and sound effects. I've tried uploading my custom soundtrack to PinSounds website, but for some reason it wont upload... I've since reached out to Nicholas on it but never heard back. I may plan on doing a quick YouTube video running through all the upgraded Music, but if anyone is running a PinSound on their J*B and is interested in my custom sound bill, let me know and I'll gladly share it.

Awesome! Any gameplay video so we can hear the songs with the game?

Cool! How did you manage to set up the pop bumpers led rings? I wanted to but there is so few millimiters with the mini pf above, I would be very interested in doing it too..
Waiting for your video on youtube!

Here’s a topper that came with my early prototype machine. This hangs above the backbox so it looks like her leg is hanging off the side. It’s printed on thick foam board. I wonder how many of these were made and if arcades actually used them?

Question about the "hit-me" blackjack hand... is the awarded card based at all on game play or truly random? I understand that shooting for "hit-me" is basically asking for a drain, just curious on how that mostly ignored portion of code works.
