Years and years ago I remember someone showing me some of the funny things Williams developers would put in the code and fun easter eggs.
Then a great man introduced me into the wonderful world of modding sounds for games.
I've done some initial digging around in this system and that wanting to see the code. Figured Stern, JJP and Spooky tech guys could benefit by sharing the code with the end users in a way that won't piss off their bosses. Sign up form giving them a sense of security and not disclosing trade secrets.
I know there are some Hombrew pinball circles but wouldn't it be cool if you could leverage some of what Stern's done and make a VR game.
Build out the rules and test your machine using something very similar to what is in the industry now.
Most of us don't have time to create our own system and much of what was out years ago just isn't up to today tech stack. The VR pinball systems just
don't seem very optimized for 2020 machines.
What could I or my kid be doing to get up to snuff for coding at Stern, JJP or ?. Seems to me it would be in their best interest to have a point
of entry for Developers to showcase their skills using established systems. Shoot if I was stern I'd sell a developer toolkit to folks for Home Use only.
Stern could have an army of free bug fixers..
