1.06 released.

From the notes:
- Removed unused obsolete Standard Adjustments:
- "FLASH LAMP POWER"
- "COIL PULSE POWER"
- "BILL VALIDATOR"
- "TEAM SCORES"
- "CONSOLATION BALL".

Oh man! Coil pulse power actually never did anything? I guess going from low->high and it feeling different was just in my head.

#3552 1 year ago

New code update guys!

Looks like my source was legit.

#3554 1 year ago

I've never updated a Stern before. JJ has full installs and update installs. Does Stern do the same? If so which is this?

#3555 1 year ago

Stern is not the same. Just grab the code. Copy to USB. Plug in. Turn on. Sit down. Hold on. Enjoy.

#3559 1 year ago
Quoted from bigdaddy07:

Backbox – 8ohm

Quoted from bigdaddy07:

Cabinet speaker type – 8ohm

Aren't the FF speakers 4 ohm?

#3560 1 year ago
Quoted from mikeking:

Aren't the FF speakers 4 ohm?

8ohms for all the FF Speakers

FF website:

This complete three-piece replacement speaker system includes 2 of our custom-designed, high-efficiency 4" 2-way speakers (8 Ohm speakers wired in parallel to achieve a 4 Ohm load at the amp). The capabilities of the backbox speakers are critical to delivering the majority of music, voice and sound effects in modern pinball machines while being efficient enough not to overdrive the amp at maximum volume levels. Extensive testing and design enhancements have resulted in the optimum balance of speaker performance characteristics – to bring out the best sound in your Stern pinball machine.

#3561 1 year ago

Looks like my game decided to change languages mid update....weird

#3564 1 year ago

I agree that I don't see a lot in the 1.06 update that really seems to be a major game changer unless I'm missing something in the notes...

#3565 1 year ago

It's a minor bugfix update. I'll probably just skip it.

#3566 1 year ago

I think the scoring refinements and such actually will have a large impact on high scores and such.

Also the underlying system firmware upgrade once again totally revampts the Util-Vol settings and my LE the sounds a lot better on default settings than it ever did previously. I still had to tweak a few things but overall the sound quality has improved noticeably I'd say. If you've been concerned with poor sound quality I'd definately recommend the update.

Agreed. Just played two games on our LE after update. Game sounds better for sure. Nothing much else noticeable.

I'm pretty sure the update code is just hardcoded to show those two languages since the language settings are lost during the update (like all settings).

"Updating..." is the English.

Would the sound on the Premium improve as well presumably?

I don't recall ever seeing the spanish on an update before this one, though.

Well, bummer--I guess I'll have to lose my high score again, but a sound upgrade will be worth it. Care to post your new sound settings?

Quoted from Billy16:

Still playing around with it but on my LE with Polk 10" powered sub underneath I think I'm using:

- Backbox Treble boost = +1.5db (default was +3db I think). Default sound was a little too crisp for my tastes.
- Cabinet Bass boost =Max (+11.75db?) (default was +6db I think). Trying to get more oomph out of the cab speaker and powered sub below. Even though it's cranked in most songs the bass is really clean and not boomy.

Oh and Music Attenuation = -15 and Speech Attenuation = +2.

Of course YMMV and factors such as room size, materials, etc. will have a large impact on the sound so tune to your own liking! Right out of the box default was really quite decent as well, minus the Music being way too in the background for a music pin (hence the Music Attentuation setting).

Question about the 1.06 update, in the readme it says "Volume buttons change options for full or quick update", what is the difference between "full" and "quick" update?

#3576 1 year ago
Quoted from malklavious:

“Full” is a complete software update. and “quick” is a add-on update.

I always do a Full update now, after having issues with the add-on...the Full takes longer, but it is the best way IMHO.

I am so happy to hear this
As I am away at the moment new code test is not possible for me.
Have to say thanks to audio team for looking and tweaking the mixing.
If the raspy mids are gone I will be stoked
IMDN for me is best game of all time.
Appreciate Keith and coders not walking away from this Gem. Top 10 always
This is a huge win against such strong competition
Thanks team Stern

Will be interested to hear your opinion when you get a chance to try it.

Full update to version 1.06, tweaked the audio settings along the lines of bigdaddy07's suggestions: game sounding and playing great. I was a bit sad the update would wipe out my 501m GC score, however I promptly played a 500m GC game, including my first Mummy card (now that I know the trick for lighting the mummy jackpot by ripping the spinner) during a 3x play field . Damn, I love this game.

Dang...after rereading the rules ->

http://tiltforums.com/t/iron-maiden-pinball-rulesheet-wip/3787

Yeah, so hit the spinner, then hit the captive ball, and rinse/repeat until you spell Mummy then hit center ramp for jackpot and get the card?

Originally I thought it was hitting the ramps, then ramps and orbits, because.....that is what is lit on the game. That is just for adding a ball.

The FOI change is significant for mediocre players. The light locks change will also have significant impact.

#3582 1 year ago

Can anyone confirm on new code, top right up post doesn’t go up to stop balls on aces high and ROTAM anymore? Works for trooper still and other parts of the game, just not these modes. New feature or bug?

#3583 1 year ago

Nvm. Just found it in the readme:

- added 'LIMIT RIGHT UP POST USE' - defaults to YES, which will not raise the Right Up Post for mode starts, change to NO to revert to old behavior EDIT: its feature adj #65

Btw. New lighting effects are bitchin! They’re almost like Dwighting effects

Yes, I can confirm that for both of them, noticed it last night. It's not listed as a "feature" in the release notes so my guess is a bug.

Never mind, just saw your second post. Thanks for finding the feature number!

#3585 1 year ago

I had to make some changes to my settings since the upgrade to 1.06, as the sound was off with my old settings. This is with FF 10" kit.
Master Volume – 42
Balance – -3
Backbox – 8ohm
Backbox bass freq – 125hz
Backbox bass gain - 1.5db
Backbox treble freq – 4khz
Backbox treble gain - +3db
Cabinet speaker type – 8ohm
Cabinet bass freq – disabled
Cabinet bass gain - +11.25db
Cabinet treble freq – disabled
Cabinet treble gain – 3.375

Music attenuation - 2

#3586 1 year ago

Why are you guys disabling the bass frequency. I did that and all the base disappeared.

Quoted from Lermods:

I originally worked with Michael Pupo to get the core settings, based on his suggestions, and then tweaked them from there. I believe that was his suggestion, as I'm not an audio guy by any stretch. I have tons of bass coming from mine. A couple of my favorite things on the game are hearing the death blows and the tomb opening, because of the bass.

#3588 1 year ago
Quoted from Lermods:

I *think* that's just disabling the crossover points.

#3589 1 year ago

I lost a lot of base when I did this. I have an external sub hooked up and it was like it was off.

#3591 1 year ago

Trying out bigdaddy07 's audio settings. As soon as I adjust the balance to negative (anything below 0) the backbox speakers completely shut off and all I hear is the cabinet speaker. Is this a bug with the new 1.06 code? I don't recall it doing this before.

That's strange. What do you have for speakers? Are they upgraded or stock?

Yes, that's what I recall Michael explaining to me.

My thought is what works with FF speakers might not work with the stock speakers--as FF's have a different crossover (I'm pretty sure).

It's pretty sweet at the start of Aces High that the 2nd ball comes screaming out of the right orbit.

#3595 1 year ago

Yeah the FF kit I have has a built-in low pass crossover in the cabinet speaker (it's treated as a sub).

Yes. Are you using my new settings? Post 3585? I can check those again on my side. My game was killing it with those settings.

It appears neither up post traps the ball for aces high now even when you turn setting #65 off. Can anyone confirm? Don’t know how I feel about that now that my auto plunger works 100% lol

Quoted from bigdaddy07:

Yes, post 3585. I think it's just a glitch in the menu. After I exit out of the menu with those settings and start a game it works fine.

Thanks for sharing!

Big thread

Do you Premium owners wish you bought a Pro instead?

I keep reading in other threads the Premium/LE mechs are guaranteed problematic.

Seems like Pro is the way to go unless I want to tinker more than play?
