V1.04.0 - September 06, 2018
PRO V1.04 - Sept. 6, 2018 ===================== - Added USA_13 Coinage 1/$1.00, 7/$5.00 - Update to nodeboard firmware v0.25.0 - Added adjustment to scale GI, Insert, and Flasher LED brightness, range is 25% to 100%. - Added adjustment to limit GI, Insert, and Flasher LED Max brightness, range is 64 to 255. PRO V1.03 - July 23, 2018 ===================== - Fixed Tournament Leaders attract mode display effect text, i.e. "Current Winners:" text is replaced with "Tournament Leaders:". - Fixed Tournament Winners/Leaders attract mode display effect initials text that could sometimes exceed the width of the display now that the player can enter up to 20 initials. - Fixed a problem where the outline was missing on the "Tournament Ends In" attract mode display text. - Changed the criteria when Mystery awards an add-a-ball. Under normal circumstances Mystery will try to award an add-a-ball if a multiball is active. A problem occurs when Mystery and Immolation Initiative or Save Xandar Wizard Mode start are both awarded at the same time. The game would prematurely award a Mystery add-a-ball and then start the "lit" Wizard Mode. In this case the player wouldn't want an add-a-ball award yet since the multiball mode is just beginning with a 25 second ball saver. Now, the Mystery add-a-ball criteria has been changed to make add-a-ball available later in the multiball. - added Slam Tilt functionality to the game, i.e. for games that have a Slam Tilt switch installed. - Enhanced center channel clarity. - Added bass frequency filter selection options: 125Hz, 250Hz, and disabled. - Added treble frequency filter selection options: 4kHz, 8kHz, and disabled. PRO V1.02 - June 20, 2018 ===================== - Fixed a problem with Groot Multiball speech where Groot did not say, "I Am Groot", if the Groot Motor was disabled. - Changed the default volume to approx. 75db - Fixed a problem where Groot's mouth did not honor the "Disable Motor" adjustment and tried to move during synced speech when the motor was disabled. - Fixed a problem when a ball was kicked out of Groot's mouth and exited the game via the right outlane while the right outlane "Save" feature was lit. Under this circumstance, the system "Ball Save" takes precedence and tries to immediately serve another ball into play, if possible. Otherwise, the game waits for the ball to travel to the trough at which time a new ball will be kicked back into play. The problem that occurred was that under these circumstances the Ball Saver timed out between the time the ball exited the right outlane and entered the trough. - Fixed an issue with the bonus rule where the player 4 bonuses weren't being initialized correctly. - Added adjustments for backbox and cabinet speaker types to the service menu UTIL->VOL. Supported speaker types are "STANDARD 8 OHM" and "HIGH PERFORMANCE 4 OHM". The amplifier power curve is appropriately adjusted for the selected speaker type. - Added Maintenance Reboot support. The game will automatically reboot if it has been on for more than 48 hours and has been idle for at least 15 minutes. A 15 second notification display will be presented and can be postponed by pressing both flipper buttons, inserting a coin/bill, or starting a game. - Updated AD_TILT_DEBOUNCE minimum value to 750ms to avoid overly conservative configurations. - DIAG->NODE->COMM test would occasionally falsely report address collisions, this has been corrected. PRO V1.01 - May 24, 2018 ===================== - Fixed bonus carry over issue during multiplayer games PRO V1.00 - May 22, 2018 ===================== - Increased Immolation Initiative scoring. - Increased potential Antiquities Shop 2 switch scores. - Increased potential Yaka Arrow 2 pop bumper scores. - fixed Yaka Arrow 2 pop bumper award animations. - Added logic to allow the ticket dispenser to appear in coil test. - Fixed a mission timer bug that, upon draining, reset the mission timer back to it's original starting value and resumed the mission at the start of the next ball. This occurred when the ball drained with only fractional seconds remaining in a mission. Now, when draining under this same scenario, the player is presented mission select at the start of the next ball. - Fixed a bug where the skill shot was available after Cherry Bomb Multiball. - Fixed a bug where a ball saver was available after Cherry Bomb Multiball. - Added logic to Save Xandar shot light strings to represent how many more shots are needed to complete a shot and add-a-ball into play. The logic is: 3 to go = Lamp Blinking 2 to go = Lamp Solid 1 to go = Shot lamp string strobing ON,ON,ON,OFF,OFF,OFF - Fixed a bug in Save Xandar that would not award a left orbit shot if a ball was simultaneously being auto launched from the shooter lane. - fixed Save Xandar Super Jackpot Ready lightshow. - fixed mystery award lightshows that occur during multiball events. - Fixed a bug in Immolation Initiative where balls were not being added back into play after crossing a switch/score threshold. - Increased the ball saver time during Immolation Initiative when balls are added back into play. - fixed display text in Save Xandar - added an add-a-ball and ball saver for completing each shot during Save Xandar, i.e. Save Xandar now has 9 add-a-balls. - fixed a Save Xandar award lightshow. - Now missions contribute to the end ball bonus. Completing a mission will add 50% of the total mission score to the Bonus. Example: score 10M total points during Sanctuary. Upon draining the Ronan value in the bonus sequence is worth 5M.

These are also synced to the movement of Groot's mouth. - Groot's mouth is now synced to the speech during the Groot Multiball Start sequence. - Added speech to Groot Multiball start. - Choreographed Groot Multiball start lightshow(s). - Added 2 blow off sequences to the Groot Multiball Display Effect.

Shot the right ramp to collect all of the points earned during Sibling Rivalry. - now Secondary modes, i.e. Yaka Arrow 2, Sanctuary 2, etc.. persist until the end of the ball or until all of their associated points have been collected.
