- Copied all the needed classic light strings (STD) into the new ironman game.
- Copied all the needed lamp string strings from the STD edition to the new one
- Set up a lamp for the iron monger chest light in the coil table
- Copied over all LE code that is needed from STD edition
- Put in code so that if adjustment is set to new LE it shows the new stern logo, and if it is set to the old LE it shows the old stern logo, in attract mode
- Added an adjustment so users can select whether they are using LED’s or incandescent lamps in their game (regardless of hardware version)
- Reworked the flash lamp effects that go from dim to light or vice versa (for games with LED lights)
- Commented out the attract mode dim to bright effect if the game is using led lights, but it will still run the effect if incandescent lights are selected
- Added the iron monger chest light to the iron monger speech FS so that his chest light will blink with his speech

- Changed the iron monger super jackpot LE effect it was repeating until the DE was done, now it only repeats twice before stopping
- Changed the monger multiball hit award LE flash lamps to fs invalid so the LE will still show through when iron monger talks
- fixed a bug that was keeping the iron monger start effect from running when it should, part of the fix was to write a new alternate LE for the last hit on the iron monger before multiball starts
- fixed do or die LE for background as they were doing a dim to bright effect
- Created a mask version of the function lss_sweep_off_down_mask and lamp_string_off_mask to help reveal mode shots sooner after certain LE
