Quoted from rosh:

being locked away working on game 2

Rosh! It's been two hours since you've checked in code for game 2! Get back to work!

I’m Joe Schober. No, I’m totally focused on Oktoberfest, not doing any Houdini work.

Quoted from MMP:

Well think of it this way... how could this game be used for any tournament given this limitation?

Why not? Total Nuclear Annihilation has a similar rule (game ends after destroying reactor 9); like Houdini, that has also been used in a lot of tournaments.

In practice, it's pretty unlikely to come up... these are achievements that will rarely be reached by even strong players. But if they are... then yes, best score wins, as usual.

Just speaking for myself: nope. Love pinball as much as ever. But I admit the other machines in my collection don’t get nearly the play they should, it’s always Oktoberfest getting “tested”. Same effect when I was working on Alien.

Quoted from konjurer:

But I would assume that there are worse ways to earn a living than coding new features and testing them out, correct? I would love to do that for a living. I wrote new code for my KISS Pro and it was a blast to implement my own rules, light shows, animations and sound effects!

It's a total blast! I have plenty of local job opportunities -- and frankly, pretty much all of them pay considerably better -- but when you're a lifelong pinball fan, growing up playing with Pinball Construction Set on the Apple II... yeah, this is pretty damn cool.

Half the fun of the job is laughing at rosh's witticisms.
