Any noticeable game play changes?

#4 11 days ago

- Attract Mode - added Legacy of the Beast 2019 tour dates

- Eddie Cards - collecting level 1 - boosts power jackpot 5M
- Eddie Cards - collecting Level 2 - boosts power jackpot 15M
- Eddie Cards - collecting Level 2 - now shows display effect with current EDDIE card status (used to just be a callout)

- Can I Play with Madness - defaults to off in competition mode

Awesome news for IMDN owners!

#7 11 days ago

I love it when new code comes out. Even if I don’t own the machine.

#8 11 days ago

Just got IMDN and never updated code before. Anywhere on pinside that provides steps to update the code?

Stern site where you'll download it from will tell you what to do. Pretty basic, download, unpack, put on thumbdrive, to into menu and select update

The main thing you want to do at that point is select quick and NO verify. Just saves you time

#10 11 days ago

I don't think you have to unzip file anymore, right? They made updating REALLY simple now. Must've gotten all my letters.

#11 11 days ago

I'm still running 1.02. Time to update methinks. And fix my Newton ball.

Awesome, thank you. Gonna try it tomorrrow.

That's probably how they got around there famous text that always said "copy the 2 folders on the USB drive" even though sometimes there were more or less than 2 folders. Ha, gotta love those guys.

#14 11 days ago

Easy to update. Did metallica a few weeks ago, big diff in game. Gonna do IM tonite

No you dont have to unzip, just drag them over to your USB folder and drop them in.

I always do full verification... It might take longer, but I can play other games while it's doing that. Then again, I never set my PC to quick boot either - I'd like to know about an issue sooner rather than later. I'm in the minority though

I have only updated code twice and did verification, because it sounded like I should. I didn't know how long it would take though.

I do the full with verify now because it always works. Seems most problems or difficulties arise when I dont. Of course this is just imo.

What is the difference in time to do the update between verify and not verifying? Thanks!

Slightly less than double the time.

Nice

Yeah, this is a treat. One of those things that I wanted, but never formed it into a full thought like "Oh, I want that." Happy someone did.

#24 11 days ago

I updated from 1.04 to 1.06 last night and first game had my best game ever. New code makes the game noticeably easier and it’s definitely more polished. Saw some new animations and heard new callouts. The concert tour dates in attract mode are cool! Such a bad ass pin

I keep trying to download IMDN update for premium and when i put the in usb in machine, it says invalid sdk?

I did notice that the file name has LE instead of premium. Does that matter? If so, i tried all 3 links and none say premium? I am assuming code is the same for premium and LE but have no idea why it says invalid sdk.

I am going to try to update my aerosmith and see if i get similar issues. Guess that will be the first step to troubleshooting.

#26 11 days ago

What format is the stick in?

#27 11 days ago
Quoted from TheLaw:

Not sure. It is plugged into my dell PC and allows me to drag the file over and see it.

#28 11 days ago
Quoted from Lermods:

I never verify, never had an issue.

Same here.

#29 11 days ago

I did notice the spk file for aerosmith looks like a zip file icon but iron maiden does not. Hmmm

There are times when it's a zip and you have to extra and other times it's just a spk file. I think depends on the complexity/size of the update.

Try formatting your USB device and then downloading again.

Thanks. Good to know.after reading aerosmith instructions i see it is different with the zip file. Of course my usb flash isnt big enough for awerosmith. Lol comedy of errors today.

Now if i can figure out how to reformat the usb flash for iron maiden

[quoted image]

darkryder nice score. What specifically do you think makes it easier? I only got to play it a little last night, I know there are a few scoring differences per the readme, but did I notice balls not locking prior to modes starting, which I don't know if that's part of the code or if a bug/glitch/switch issue. I seem to remember starting quite a few modes without the lock stopping the mode-starting ball, which made it easier (in the multiball modes) to get a couple of jackpot shots in on an empty playfield before the second ball launched.

It should display as soon as you turn the game on. Weird if it doesn't.

Ok. I saw it. User error. Thanks!

Yes the usb stick has to be empty.

Thought it was a stupid question. Glad I asked. Thanks.

This is NOT true. The update process is looking for a specific file type and ignores any other file types on the thumb drive. I consistently update my games with other files in my thumb drive and have never had an issue.

I think you're wrong but im not going to argue about it. Ive heard it repeated many times here that your USB stick has to be empty of all other files. Im no computer expert though so maybe you are right.

I update them all the time with multiple code updates for different games on them and all kinds of other stuff. It will ask you which to upload and you just select the correct code and it will start the upload. JJP games do require a clean USB though.

I kind of thought that. That's why I thought a stupid question.

This is correct, I do the same thing. My USB stick has old TWD code on it and I didn't have a problem updating.

Thats true. Im getting older now and usually can't remember what i did 5 minutes ago.
