More updates from Stern Pinball! Meanwhile, anticipation intensifies for an update to a certain spectral game.

KISS v1.41 – The day they decided to correct the spelling of Pittsburgh. Although it would have been funny to just keep it the incorrect way.

V1.41.0 – December 11, 2018

– Added the virtual locks adjustment to the “Install Competition” menu.
– Renamed several adjustments to better describe what each adjustment
changes. The adjustment “Demon Eject Power” is now called
“Demon Eject/VUK Power” and controls the power of the coil that kicks
the ball from the playfield up into the Demon Head. The adjustment
“Demon LockUp Power” is now called “Demon LockUp/Release Power”
and controls the coil that kicks out locked balls from the Demon Head.
– Raised the volume of the Demon Lock Rapid Kick sound effect.
– Changed the Demon Multiball Start full playfield light show. Now the end
sequence playfield lights are in sync with the balls as they exit the Demon

award can be multiplied by the shot/playfield multipliers. Upon completion
the game resets the Cities collected allowing for another set of 15 cities to
be collected.

– Changed the City Combo award lightshow to a “radar” look.
– Changed the Starchild full playfield lightshow (seen when hitting the
Starchild targets as play is advanced towards Love Gun Multiball) to be
more Starchild centric.

lamps in the sequence now match the Love Gun Multiball arrow colors.

the last ball.

V1.07.0 – December 11, 2018

towards Medley Multiball. Previously Medley Multiball was advanced by making

wizard mode feature. Default = 1 shot.
