Quoted from Aurich:

After you finish a CIU it lights all the shots, if you have a Prem/LE they're lit orange. Like a victory lap deal. I forget though what happens if you make them all, I can't remember if I've actually done it or not.

Hit each shot to un-light that insert, and once all 6 are out the CIU will relight. Hit the Mystery scoop to be awarded ~25% of your CIU jackpot value. i.e. 40mil CIU jackpot = 10mil collect. Rinse and repeat until you lose that ball. Not sure if there is a limit on how many times you can collect.

Quoted from nicoga3000:

Two questions!
1) Is there a way to fix the inline drops not going down when hit square by a fast ball? It's super annoying.
2) I had 2/3 drops down, hit the right ramp, and the drops reset. First time it's ever happened. Any idea what's up?

1) There are posts about changing or adjusting the springs to help them drop quicker, but on mine this problem went away after a few hundred plays. The only time I see it now is right after a waxing when the ball is screaming around, but even that is a rare occurrence.

2) Those were dropped during a multiball. They will stay down and allow you to start Grave as long as you DON'T hit a ramp first - actually I think hitting the orbits will reset them as well.

Quoted from Fezmid:

I've never updated a ColorDMD - is it hard? Any "gotchas" to look out for?

Color DMDs older than May 2013 will require a new key to work correctly after the update. Check this link if that applies to you: https://www.colordmd.com/Support_Keys.html

How do I know that? Because I forgot mine is older, and after the upgrade the screen was back to a very dim orange and shifted halfway down so you could only see half the visuals. I figured I could still play even though I couldn't see crap, so I fired up a game and dropped this little gem.

I'd never broken 800mil, let alone with a freakin' 4 in front of it, and never started more than 3 CIU modes. Hell I played two more AFTER dropping out of EOL. Huge 2x collect on FWTBT, and at least 6 super collects in End of the Line. Stock settings on latest code, and I did get 2-3 extra balls but not really sure since I couldn't see what ball I was on. Figures I finally get there, beat the snot out of the machine, and didn't get to see any of the animations along the way!

So, go update your DMD and bust out a new GC score!
