    So Stern have rejigged the premiums and the Le's with a new "physical game enhancement".

    I wonder if lack of sales and/or complaints about a pretty mild upper playfield has made that happen.

    "Stern Pinball will be revealing new Black Knight code and a new physical game enhancement only for the Premium and Limited Edition models this Monday, June 24th.

    This exciting code update contains a new RANSOM WIZARD MODE, featuring sounds, speech and display effects from Black Knight 2000!

    In addition, there is a new LAST CHANCE feature, allowing players to continue the action of their gaming experience with an enhanced SUPER CATAPULT MULTIBALL!

    This code is exclusively for the Premium and Limited Edition models. New Pro code is coming soon.

    In addition to this code update, Stern will reveal a new physical game enhancement that will extend the upper playfield gameplay experience. "

      I made a couple of small upgrades for the coin door this weekend. First up is replacing the generic coin return button insert. A new Black Knight insert was made up and installed.



      There's an empty rectangle along the coin door that is begging for a decal of some kind. I made up a few variations to try.



      These were printed out on to peel and stick gloss paper and then covered in clear contact. The corners were trimmed round and then installed.

      The new decal and coin inserts add a nice little presentation lift to the front of the machine.

      Eschew the standard. Turn the paradigm upside down.

        Stern used to put a decal there but more cost cutting has now left the area vacant.

          Maybe Stern are putting back in what was meant to be there in the first place? Slow sales are forcing them to make changes for the better. I like it.

            Not sure Stern will be able to save face on this title by adding this stuff that should have been in there originally. Tight asses.
            So want to love this game, as for me the theme rocks but mannnn that layout kills it.
            Only 5 main shots(left to VUK, 2 orbits, flail and shield) ain't enough and is the reason I sold GOT after about 3 days. Mehhhhh.
            Excuse me while I hibernate till late October.

              Yeah its an awesome theme and I love the animations but i still own a GOTLE (me and ray love it) so I pulled out of my BKSORLE. Will be good to see how it ends up though. So many games that are raved about early end up disappointing for me and vice versa. Everyone hated walking dead at release and now its one of the best.

                A few of sr games are around the 5 shot for layouts... it's nothing strange with him... he does seem to have the knack of making it feel like there is more.

                There is a dude in Germany I think it was that does a bunch of coin door decals specifically for newer sterns... I got one for luci back in the day as a replacement for the stock sticker for acdc.... before Stern went full scrooge.

                  It would be nice if they had the option to change the music a bit .... my old Gotlieb Hulk could do that

                    I’ll disagree with you on that statement Hashie. I thought twd was good out of the box. I enjoyed initial code although I didn’t play it too much only a few games at the release and then not again until I bought mine (I think it was just after the big code drop) but I liked the layout and what was initially there for me to sit back and pounce on one when [MENTION=8741]Dedrok[/MENTION] let me know one was available
                    In: Houdini, Iron man, SWLE, TWDLE, Whitewater, WOZ and Xmen
                    Out: Avengers Hulk, BOP, BSD, Demo man, Elvis, Flintstones, Frank Thomas Big Hurt, Frankenstein, The Getaway:HS2, Gorgar, Grand Slam, Hobbit, Judge Dredd, Lord of the Rings, METPrem, Roadshow, RZ, Shadow, Spider-Man, STTNG, WCS, Wheel of Fortune, Wild life, WWELE

                      Initial code was poo, but that doesnt mean that you shouldnt like it. Code now is pretty good.

So the audits that show how many times a mode has been activated, or completed, scores set in rangers, drains, tilts, etc are all at 0. My game is set to free play, but I'd be expecting those audits to still tally up as games are played. Is there something I need to configure for these audits to start working? Or are the audits only tracked on paid games?
                        Will have to wait for code
                        Audits are always sketchy with early code on new Sterns

                        Appreciate the great updates with your game

                        Awesome man !

                          I contacted AMD about it a few days ago and they were thinking it's due to incomplete code. Regardless, they contacted Stern and then Stern requested for me to perform an audit dump and send the file along. Not sure if i'll hear anything back, but we'll see.

                            I went in to the audit again tonight and noticed they are now actively tracking during play. This has only kicked in to action since I ran the audit dump to USB last night. Not sure why that would be, but the audits now seem to be tracking as a result of that. I sent a message off to AMD to let them know.
