We always recommend running the latest code as it will have more features and the best game experience.



download v1.10

  • Sanitarium mode
    • added new menu option SANITARIUM TIMER
      • EASY: 30 second timer, targets increase time, access middle playfield via center ramp > upper playfield
      • MEDIUM: 30 second timer, only right ramp gets to middle playfield
      • HARD: no timer and only right ramp gets to middle playfield
  • Tombstone Multiball
    • Tombstone Multiball is now a featured 2-ball multiball. Orange shots award jackpots. Tombstone target awards super jackpot and increases jackpot values.
    • Tombsone Multiball is stackable with other modes and multiballs.
    • 2x scoring when Tombstone Multiball is running.
    • qualifying shots for Tombstone Multiball will spawn hurry-up orange shots at the knife handles to qualify upcoming expert mode. Right now they just award points.
    • lights for this are red now so they show through orange plastic protectors
    • skipping the “Young Michael” video doesn’t release the captured ball like it sometimes used to
  • Eye of the Needle aka Dirty Pool shot is back! Shoot between the drop targets and up the ramp for 2x scoring and to instantly open the House
    when in House MB, you can hold a ball in the Sanitarium scoop for bigger jackpot scores
  • when in Sanitarium MB, you can hold a ball on the balcony for bigger jackpot scores
  • on screen instructions should display better, but these are still a work-in-progress, so bear with us
  • new film clips added to many places
  • moved the “active stack” info to the top left of screen
  • menu option to turn extra balls off (option to turn off ballsave coming soon)
  • when in pay-to-play mode, credits wont be used past four players (pesky kids won’t be such an issue any more)
  • double flipping no longer force skipping film clips that don’t hold up play
  • “speed kills” is louder
  • ball search now behaving better while you watch film clips, especially the long ones
  • extra knock removed when Michael gets stabbed with the coat hanger
  • Bob and Lynda “nail filing” video now plays properly with sound
  • save ball timers now start at the end of mode introduction videos, so you don’t have to skip
  • screen should look right after entering initials for a high score
  • fixed the tilt screen sometimes showing the scores UI
  • fixed the menu screens sometimes bleeding drops!
  • exiting the menu restarts the machine properly, shouldn’t be any extra text hanging around on screen
  • replay text can be turned off with menu option
  • your USBs will now be freed up from “empty” log files being copied every time you put them in. Now they’ll only appear if something actually went wrong. So if you see one, please email it to matt@spookypinball.com, thanks!
  • crash screen (hopefully you never see this!) has much more useful information, if you can take a photo and send it to matt@spookypinball.com that would be amazing. Lots of extra code robustness added, and better error handling throughout the game
  • cleaned out the menu option “servo settings” that didn’t do anything
  • lots more behind the scenes improvements and optimizations

Improvements AFTER this update is installed:

  • Mac users can update as easily as everyone else going forward (see new details on the update page https://www.spookypinball.com/game-support/hwn-um-update-process/ for how Mac users can install updates in the meantime)
  • Machine settings will be saved across updates in future (unless they’ve been moved or changed in some way)
