Quoted from vdojaq:

Interesting.....this is not the cabinet style I believe that is going to be used.

Is that the Forehead LE model?

Quoted from rosh:

I'd say there is a decent chance Houdini will make a limited appearance at MGC on Saturday. If it does, it will be just one machine and we will have it on 2 ball play to try to give as many people as possible a chance to play. I'd like to avoid one ball play, since be a real bummer for someone to wait in line and get a house ball. Of course if we find ball/game times are too long, we will change that. I've considered adding code that if you first ball is more then X minutes, you don't get a second ball, but probably won't have time to do that and properly test it.

What about just a simple game-time limit? 5 minutes and then dead flippers & "Thanks for playing."

#282 2 years ago
Quoted from spfxted:

I understand wanting a bit longer, but with the math of 5 minutes per person.....It's 50 minutes per only 10 people....

That's only if 10 people have the skill to last the full 5 of course.

Quoted from rosh:

Right now game has quite a few insults thrown at the player, just because those were easy to come up with when I did the first round of voice calls -- or maybe that is just my sense of humour.
In all honesty coming up with the voice calls is in many ways harder than coming up with rules. That is one of the biggest downsides to an unlicensed theme. Not like I can sit back have a few shots of tequila and watch a movie over and over again to find great call outs. I don't have Harold Ramis or the Coen brothers writing for me.

I enjoyed the message you guys have in there saying "BALL SAVE -- Next time, try using the flippers" or whatever that was

#328 2 years ago
Quoted from colonel_caverne:

I would like to understand all call outs in general coz it is not obvious for people whose English is not the first language
Why not create a data bank of callout by pin?
For exemple here, what mean "you stink"?

It's a mild insult and it's not specific to pinball. Usually it means you're terrible at something.
