Was the code on this game “finished”, “finished, not polished”, “unfinished”, or “demonstration code”? Thanks.

Code was finished and pretty polished thanks to ferret

Code is very good. Not overly deep but not simple - nice mix.

mod - you can buy it sep and install it.

Nope, the lit side panels are not necessarily an aftermarket mod. Heighway shipped SE's with lit side panels from the factory - they were not exclusive to the LE.

Not true... my se did not have lit side panels.

You're correct in that they could be special ordered and installed in the factory so yes, some SE's did come with them installed already. By default, they didn't come with them.

I believe some SEs were shipped with them and others were not.

Also, the backglass is different between the LE and SE.

Sure, but some did come that way.

My point is that if you see an SE with lit side panels, it is not necessarily an after market mod. Heighway shipped some SE's with them already installed.

Code was finished, with all important I/O board updates on final release. Polished well, and plenty deep. The early, cobbled together games ( by the team's own admission) was lacking the code, and many other key components.

Op's package is very nice if you want the real, solid game.

And you can not create this final rev LE from a standard, period , unless you have access to some unobtanium artwork.

That's important stuff especially the boards

Correct

#61 4 months ago

I had an se it was great but the le definately feels more solid after all it did fall and break my left tibia... so be careful when moving it !

Quoted from bigd1979:

What's the differences between the le and se?

4K

Quoted from Ilushka85:

I dont remember if backglass is different but yes there is a numbered plaque..

side panel pic here - both backglass and side panel indicate “Limited Edition”

That's what you were saying about BM66 LE's and SLE's Robo

Yeah i wouldn't necessarily pay that but if anybody wants one you won't have too many options EVER to get a late run LE.

About 80 LE's total

For now.

What does that mean ? How could there be more ?

Quoted from Ilushka85:

There's not and won't be....possibly cobbled versions will surface (as they started), but the factory that built these very few has been done and gone for some time. GLWS...someone will get a special game if you let it go....

Why can’t CGC or another company make them? They started remaking MM when it was less expensive than what you’re asking.

Licensing is a bit more of an issue for this than MM/AFM/MB.

Also the license expired and because of the entire fiasco with the game and so few made it means fox made peanuts on it. No chance they will let someone attempt running with this again.

Additionally the ip of the game is owned by several different entities at this point. You would need to license from each of them and pay them.

No chance this game gets reproduced again.

Did the LEs come with the standard art too? The side panels I could go either way with but the original/standard backglass art is the way to go.

#76 4 months ago

my LE didn't come with standard panels, but you can find them.. the backglass standard I do agree looks better then the LE, but the LE side panels look better then the SE to me.

Quoted from Oneangrymo:

Ok I have two downvotes because I said Alien is an awesome pinball machine, its the best in my collection. Uhhh.. to those that downvoted.. have you guys ever even played one???

Yeah. I've worked on and played the one at the VFW Pinball Museum. I don't like it at all. But hey, if you like it fine. I don't.

I think its just funny that this seller posted his item, and everyone is complaining about the price, then I say its an awesome pinball machine and two people give me down votes. I mean if you dont want it, dont like it.. then go somewhere else and complain.. its hilarious!

Can you buy the SE back glass and side panels anywhere?

Gotta love complainers.. Im one too. Man this guy wants 17k for a freaking pinball machine!? What a jerk! Oh wait.. I dont even want it because I hate Alien. This game sucks ass!

But of course if it was sellling for 5k all the cheap bastards will come running.. oh I love alien... I'll take it off your hands.

In full disclosure, I started off on a bad foot with Alien. The one the VFW got wasn't completely assembled when it came in, and I had to get in there and spend a considerable amount of time to align and mount the Xeno head, then mount the computer in the cabinet as whatever computer it shipped with needed to be replaced with another that required mounting in a different position. Then there were tuning and set-up issues, which I believe we addressed nicely.
After all that, I was just soured on it. So I suppose in total fairness, I should just shut up, LOL.. and not let my tainted views effect other's enjoyment.

Just to clarify, I have one of the earliest prototypes and it has the lit side blades, it's my understanding that the early test games had them, then they were cut from the production Standard models, but included on the LE's that were made.

If you're an alien owner, these are a must IMO. The good news is you can install them yourself after the fact which is what I did for mine (although Highway sent them to me already built vs what is available now which is more DIY).

1) I don't believe that.
2) Why is that not possible?
3) Never Say never...

I feel ya brutha! I bought a RS years back and it gave me so much heartache trying to fix it I almost got out of the hobby all together. Found a great guy who fixed it up for me and I loved it and glad it stayed in the hobby.

Yeah I think the best art combo is standard backglass and limited side panels.

This market is absolutely insane. If I'm a manufacturer, I'm getting a great theme, making 100 only and selling them at 20k and watch them sell out in a week or less.
