Glad they have tried to fix two balls loaded into the canon at once.

#52 6 years ago

Downloading 1.63 Pro and Premium now. Looks like a big update. He improved the Super Jackpots and added sounds to 2x 3x multiplier. My 359 mill grand champ will be history!

Here is Pro Read Me file.

V1.63 - Jan. 18, 2013
=====================

- Added multiplied shots to "For Those About To Rock".
- The bell shot is now part of combos via the left loop and the right
ramp.
- Fixed an issue that would possibly corrupt the auto extra ball data.
- Added lamp effects for T.N.T. awards.
- Album multiball and tour multiball jackpot information now displayed
outside of multiball. This helps the player if they are trying to
change songs to set up a song bonus.
- Added art and sounds for double/triple bonus. Bonus intro now plays
in the key of the song that was being played. 2x/3x stamp is either
fire or lightning (instead of silent screen flip) based on what song
was being played.
- Added speech for good bonuses.
- Added super jackpot speech. Added big lamp effects for cannon
target(s) hit.
- In an effort to keep two balls from jamming up in the cannon, the
control gate that diverts the ball into the cannon will release the
gate if a second ball arrives at the right ramp exit switch
immediately after the gate was closed to divert the first ball.
- Encore "won" and "keep shooting" effects may no longer be aborted.
- Some sound test music was being cut off during sound test. This has
been corrected.
- Fixed an issue with the song intro loop music being trampled when
the ball is loaded into the cannon quickly at the start of a new ball.
Very noticeable on songs with lengthy intros, like "Back In Black"
and "For Those About To Rock".
- Added some lamp effects.
- All scores (system and game) are now stored as 64-bit.
- Fixed up the audits. 3-multiball super jackpot and all encore audits
were not being displayed. This has been corrected.
- Added audits for the top eject and cannon switches. Triple multiball
super jackpot is now always available (but will still reset when
collected).
- Ramp targets now score like the other targets, where the value that is
built up during the ball is reset at the start of a new ball.
- If the player does not fire the cannon (timeout), most cannon awards
will not remain available. They will have to be requalified. This
prevents certain exploits (i.e. firing the ball at the left loop to
get +1 advance for Tour Multiball along with (usually) a note arrow
during a song).

Update score wipes are a bummer....but also incentive to play the crap out of a game again!!!

#54 6 years ago

Lyman is the man. As amazing as this game is, it just keeps on getting better. WOW.

#55 6 years ago

I'm just curious. I haven't been around all that long. Have other games in recent years got this much attention? At least as far as updates are concerned?

#56 6 years ago

I believe this calls for another run
I mean really would any Prem or LE owner not re-buy this game if they had to do it again.
Wonder if we took a poll how many would not re-buy this game.
I think I'll start one.

#57 6 years ago

In addition to the one they just did? The game kicks arse!

#58 6 years ago

Just played a few games and the new code is very cool.
The light show is just taken to a whole other level with cannon hits and even the after game show is very nice.
The most impressive thing was the 2X bonus "Stamp" that hits with a loud sonic boom sound.
Scared the hell out of me with my headphones on.
Can't wait to discover more new stuff.
May just be my imagination but the lit shot arrow lamps seem to flash faster now and are more noticeable.
The lights down in Hell seemed brighter as well but hard to tell without being able to have the two codes running side by side.

#59 6 years ago

It's sick how much cooler the game plays. Awesome new lighting, and I noticed a new colour LED. Not exactly the same pink as Rosey, but like a lighter red. Was pointing at the bell if I'm not mistaken.

#60 6 years ago

Each update is like getting a new pin. Great work Lyman. He is the code master. Seriously, he will go down in history as the "one".

Im still floored by VIP Pass in lock bar button. It was pinball genius.

#61 6 years ago

I can't believe we all missed this doh!!!
Too funny.
well there goes an early night. Time to update : )

That sounds cool. I really hope in the future, they use green, orange and maybe purple in songs. I think with the capability of the color changers, that, reusing colors is not necessary.

#63 6 years ago

The code was not up on there site this morning. I was looking at codes for my other games and clicked on AC/DC and it was the old code on there. They must have just put the wrong date up.

#64 6 years ago

Man is everyone downloading this right now? It's downloading SOOOOOO SLOOOOWWWWWWWW ...Steve Ritchie would not approve!!!!

#65 6 years ago

Must be Sterns server. Is it from 1985? Takes 5 seconds to tranfer to USB. Kids will be woke to Let there Be Rock in 8 hours! Both ACDCs are updated....Good night!

#66 6 years ago
Quoted from Rarehero:

Rad! It's up for Pro and LE! I wonder how long it's been up without us noticing...damn!

It wasn't there earlier today, so it hasn't been there for two weeks.

Why do you have two!?!?! It's the weirdest thing since Robert bought FGY and Shrek lol

#68 6 years ago

This is awesome. Hmm, do I shop my Fastbreak or play AC/DC?

#69 6 years ago

Just updated mine.

#70 6 years ago

That is weird.

Long story but I have had 4 NIB ACDCs in the last year. I sold my Pro for Premium and said CRAP why did I do that ?? Love the speed + adrenaline rush of the Pro. Truely smokes the Premium. If you have the space (looks like you do) and like a challenge you should get one.

I ended up getting a second run Premium (Super clear playfield). Im happy now.

My Pro has to be one of the finest out there. Every Hemi mod, Shaker and Premium Trim. Just need that train! Stern should give me one for all the ACDCs I have sold for them.

I noticed that the game music live / studio option is no longer in the game feature adjustments menu. Is that new to this update?

The new light shows for jackpots kick ass!

ROTFL...OK....no.

Quoted from Av8:

No.

Quoted from Av8:

and like a challenge

Yes, that's why I have one. A Premium.

Quoted from Av8:

you should get one.

No. You're just weird...but hey, if you're happy ...I can't even remotely comprehend having two of the same game (one rad version, one inferior version) when one of those spots could have a different game. I barely like having massively different games if they have similar rules or features. For example I'm thinking of getting rid of Spidey cuz it's got the general flow of AC/DC, the upper flipper shot of STTNG, and the 3-Target Bank of Tron/BK2K/Avatar ...glargh why do I have so many games with 3-banks!?!?!?

#73 6 years ago

I just tried upgrading to 1.63, but the game did nothing when I inserted my USB drive. I'd try a different drive, but it's the only one I can find at the moment.

Did you flip Dip switch 8 and go into the Update menu ? Sometimes it takes a few seconds for the game to recognize the USB stick.

Yep. I don't think you can even get to the update menu without flipping switch 8 to on. I upgraded AC/DC before, but last time I used a different USB drive. This one had a lot of files on there.

How long did you leave it in while it "did nothing" ? Maybe it was searching for the right file? I'd try it again w/ just the AC/DC file if you can.

#77 6 years ago

I had a USB with lots of files and it wouldn't detect the bin, after i erased everything the bin would appear.

#78 6 years ago

I always clear all files. Do that and start over and remember to unzip and then move onto the USB.

Sorry, I don't see the logic in having both, so many great games out there and two of the same title is just a weird thing to do as a pinball player. After 20 games on my AC/DC, I can pick a completely different title to play to change things up, and to me thats what I want and most everyone wants. I couldn't imagine just going from the Pro to the Premium or vice versa, especially with my space and money limitations.

#80 6 years ago

Updating right now. Can't wait to check it out!

#81 6 years ago

Updated yesterday, and I really love it! The new lighting effects are amazing and the fixes are great too, thanks Stern!!

Now please fix the bug where the balls drain like hell! Oh wait..

#82 6 years ago

Updated new code but scores have got worse WTF

#83 6 years ago

SON OF A MOTHERLESS...........Go to update my code and my backbox key is not on my coin door. It's just gone. What the hell. Never lost a backbox key before, so what are my options, drill the lock or get the security lock thing to take the lock off and replace it with a new one? What a bummer.

#84 6 years ago

It has to there somewhere. Take a break and make sure you coldly look for it. I bet a screw driver could force that lock anyway.

#85 6 years ago

A screwdriver will do it but maybe one of your other pins' backbox keys will work

#86 6 years ago

Was just on the Stern website, how do you know which version is available? I don't see any description saying 1.61 or 1.63??

Is the new version better than 1.61 before I even try to update?

Thanks!

Of course it's better. It's new.

Look at the Readme...that tells you that it's 1.63, and what's been changed/added.

I tried all my Stern keys hoping the same, no such luck. :-/

Oh well. I'll buy your game for $100.

Done, I got a good deal on shipping for $6,900 to anywhere in the US.

#92 6 years ago

Finally got it updated today. I ended up using a different USB drive with less files on it.

#93 6 years ago

The best just got better again

#94 6 years ago

Well since I installed 1.63 my kickout for the jukebox has started malfunctioning. Now it doesn't always kick the ball out. This has never happened and it makes me suspect that something was changed in 1.63 to cause this. I don't think it's a coincidence and it happened during the first game on 1.63. I also noticed that the kickout seems to be weaker now and was wondering if maybe it was changed because the ball used to shoot out of it very fast and because of this would ricochet off the the rollover rubbers and go straight back into the jukebox.

Anyone else notice this issue?

No, I don't notice that issue on 1.63 and haven't heard anyone else mention it either.

So many times things like this will happen and you will swear that it isn't coincidence, but chances are that's exactly what it is.

#96 6 years ago

Just fiddle with that blade and it will work right

I have been having this issue for quite some time now and to be honest seems slightly better for me with 1.63 but not much. I am totally stumped. I even had a real knowledgeable tech check it out and he can't figure it out either. He recommended trying to replace the Aux board, did that no effect. I have the coil on order but not thinking that is the issue either as we had tried a similar one in there before to no avail. Really bummed, the ball just gets stuck in there 50% of the time, the strong "skill shot" from plunge won't work at all and the times it does eject it barely rolls out.

If anyone has any other suggestions I am all ears.

#98 6 years ago

Okay will try messing with the switch. Just weird that it happened the very first game of the update and had never happened before

#99 6 years ago

Well that sucks bemmett, I assume you tried adjusting the switch? The coil doesn't sound like the problem, something is not triggering the coil to kick which points to the switch. Only thing else could be a loose wire there to. That's all I can think.

Where is this new colour LED ? I haven't noticed any new colour yet from this update.
