Hi ACDC Pinball Fans
It has been long since the last ACDC Code Update.
As I started a chat with some colleagues, we re wondering, why the code is still obviously unfinished.
Reading the ACDC code threads surprises me, as some people even consider the code finished and suggest, there r other pins that should get an update.
Well, let us see what I would consider as unfinished:
There r 3 big yellow inserts just in front and middle of the playfield. 3 big inserts indicating, that there should be some modes. These inserts have no own function yet !!! They re just flashing when u can load the cannon for a song jackpot. But this is already indicated, as the cannon has it s own flasher.
There r also some Horn inserts, that flash without real function. I read, u need to collect them to get back to the lower playfield, but u do this by collecting the notes, not the horn inserts.
So, my question would be : how could some pinheads consider the code finished, looking at the pic above...?
There came a lot of updates for the other Sterns, like Metallica, The Walking Dead. Metallica has become a great Pin with all the Modes and Finals implemented.
But the most commercially (?) successful Stern Pinball is still unfinished... Why?
This can t be too much work to finish this amazing code...?
So here my suggestions :
-Implement the cannon modes.
1st mode could be: load the cannon and shoot for a moving light. 2nd mode: load the cannon shoot the moving light and do it a second time within a timer. 3rd mode :shoot 3 times a moving light within some time. successful completion gives some bonus.
- implement the Horn inserts. 3x Multiplier for the shot during "Hell" song.
- implement a Mini Wizard Final Multiball, after the 6th song. Let the lower Playfield run simultaneously to the upper pfayfield. Use the potential of both play fields run together ! (Not many players can reach Encore after 12 songs, let average players also reach some mini final).
- Reorganize the Status Report. It's too confusing. What I need is on the first page : tour 3 Album 2 Jam 0
This I nfo is the most important one, and should be put on one page.
Second Page: Songjackpot Value and remaining Fire lanes
So guys, do u think Stern could possibly do something on that issue ?
I think this great pin deserves it.
Gary, Lyman, please !!!
Just have a look again at these big, sad, empty and useless inserts...image.jpg
