Quoted from voodle:

Please have a lot of drop targets. Pinballs of late seem to have forgotten how satisfying they are to hit!! I also line the ones that sit behind each other in a lane with a pay-off at the end of the lane.
Bring back the drop target!!
Oh yes, wire ramps also, not the plastic ones. Wire ramps are so much better to look at, and probably cheaper to make.

I freaking love drop targets, especially single ones placed around the field. Cactus canyons targets come to mind.

Quoted from thewool:

I went for LE #157 to honour the souls who perished on Hadley's Hope.

I feel like I read this before somewhere

Quoted from HeighwayPinball:

Hi everyone, as promised - here is the revised layout and shot map. I will post again tomorrow with more details, and answer any questions you may have...



Oh man lots going on! Gotta study that pic a bit.

#1494 3 years ago
Quoted from Aurich:

I don't think you can buy an LE kit? Since part of the LE is the powdercoated hardware. Honestly not sure though. You can buy all the LE upgrades for the game though, the fiber optic lights and beacons.

So you can buy a standard and put LE upgrades on it at your discretion? great idea.

#1525 3 years ago

In the LE is there any gameplay differences or differences on the pf?

From what I read it seems it's just a cosmetic thing?

#1579 3 years ago
Quoted from karl:

Only cosmetics. As it should be.

I totally agree and I'm pumped to hear this.

Sick of feeling like I am missing out on gameplay just because I didn't fork out for an LE

Quoted from Aurich:

Just cosmetics. No deleted spinners, or removed drop targets or any nonsense like that.

Nonsense is exactly what that is. I'm liking what Heighway is doing more and more as times go by.

#1581 3 years ago
Quoted from accidental:

The other thing I'd like to know is Heighway also intending to improve on the usual Stern muck-around with hugely incomplete game code at launch (and only really being complete 6-12 months later)?

I bet they improve on it. I'm not a stern basher though, I like my sterns and I've never owned one with incomplete code but I bet it sucks ( mind you ST DOES have bugs in the current rev)

#1608 3 years ago
Quoted from Yipykya:

As a fan, that was a great read. Thanks. Happy to see a tidbit of where you've been researching/preparing. All good.
I found this fact interesting: "Interestingly, the makers of 2014's Alien: Isolation video game actually reverted to 1970's video technology to make the game feel more like the original movie. The game's menu screens were first rendered in software, then recorded on to VHS video tapes, played on a CRT display, filmed, and imported back into the game.)"
That's going the extra mile...ha.

Awesome game. Can't wait to try it with oculus rift

#1635 3 years ago
Quoted from Cheeks:

I downloaded this game from Steam, but have not played it yet. It's in my queue, but I'm looking forward to it.

Be sure you have good 5.1 headphones. This game has the best sound design I have ever heard and most would be missed coming out of speakers.

Had I not used mine I'm sure I would not rave about the game as much. The developers really should have put a big label on the game box saying " best enjoyed with a headset" or something.

Man, the sounds in your head while playing this game...

Quoted from Jabbles180:

So has there been a recent shot map release? Wain't that supposed to happen? I can't find it but I'm like 300 posts behind.

You haven't missed much

#3193 3 years ago

78 new posts I thought for sure...but no, just Kaneda toying with people. Not as good as an update, shit's entertaining though...

Glad to finally see the playfield.

Wish I had unique perspective but I think my impressions are similar to several others that have been voiced.

Not quite what I built up in my mind over the last year but it certainly ain't ugly.

I won't judge too hard until I see it populated and in a cab with some gameplay vids.

Must feel good to finally get this out there Aurich.

#3909 3 years ago
Quoted from Captain_Kirk:

No, it doesn't. You missed the point of Star Trek's playfield. See above.

Look closely

10pt bevel and emboss on the "console" area look like total garbage.

The more you stare at it the more amateurish it looks.

Maybe having no photoshop experience (and I have very little) makes it easier to look at.

Edit* No knock on the gameplay though. Love me some st

#3913 3 years ago
Quoted from Captain_Kirk:

Perhaps if you had more experience it wouldn't bother you so.

You missed the point.

It ok though...

The more experience you have with ps the more shitty it looks. I'm glad I'm not a pro!

#4210 3 years ago
Quoted from spfxted:

Ok, ok....I'm just playin' around here....


Both of those are great starts. That first one really jumps out and grabs u by the balls...

#4249 3 years ago
Quoted from labnip:

I was hoping for a cat cameo on the playfield

On the screen, I bet.

As long as the pussie's surviving family are given a fair royalty I suppose.

Quoted from ZenTron:

left bullseye insert still doesnt line-up with the green stand-up target like the right one does.

Talk about picking mosquito shit out of pepper....

#7248 2 years ago
Quoted from jonesjb:

When Heighway releases it's games is is code usually 100% complete, or is it just about there, or is it like some Stern games where it is a work in progress for a year or so?

Or never completed at all...
