Stern built a system new in this game to change the color of the bulbs on demand. They purposely left labels off the shots so that they can change the color and effectively change the shot and what it does. It could be used just to keep track of progress on a mode, some modes might require you to hit certain shots for more points, the AXE lanes could change colors and collect extra balls or multiball. It's all speculation right now.
Even the shots on the mini change color. The potential for creating amazing rules around this is limitless. The only thing is, nothing has been released yet.
What exists today on the LE/Premium is basically the Pro code with the mini playfield, bell and diverter very basically implemented. In reality, the LE/Premium today with all those extra features is basically the pro. However, once they finish up the Pro code and start implementing and expanding on the LE/Premium features, I'm hoping for a whole new game with an experience taken to the next level.
Without seeing where they are going, there is no way I'd buy the Pro. If you wait for the code and decide you don't like it, I can see that. But what if you go Pro, and then they update the code and you can change shots based on color, and be able to have a multiball where you play the mini and main playfield at the same time, and the rules are tweaked around the diverter, or when the bell starts swinging itself you have to shoot under it etc. It would suck to be stuck with a Pro if they go all out on the LE/Premium.
My 2 cents.
I was wondering about your last comment about the color changing LEDs. Does this game actually have color changing bulbs in it? From what I noticed the bulbs don't change color...there are just red, green and blue bulbs that go on and off at different times.
That has me wondering....is it even possable to have a controllable color changing bulb? I've never seen or heard of one.
