Selling my beautiful, original, HUO WOF in order to make some more space. The game still looks new and has no issues or wear apart from some pf dimples and a broken palm tree plastic in the upper-right corner. It also has v6.02 software...I don't know the origin of this but have never seen it before. From looking at it in the editor software it has some additional messages and another feature adjustment mode as compared to the latest public Stern release (5.xx). Have original manual and cashbox included. Will ship with your preferred carrier if needed. $4,500 picked up or FOB my house outside of Chicago. More pics by request for serious buyers, the game is just tucked away pretty well right now and pulling it out takes some doing. Please don't ask me for the software; it goes with the game. Thanks.

Bump for Devlman, perfect game... great seller.

#3 5 years ago

Very interesting on the software. Rumor has it that Keith did finish it.

Good luck on the sale.

#5 5 years ago

Rumors, rumors....

I take it this should be filed with Sasquatch sightings?

#6 5 years ago

Yeah, I wouldn't call it finished.... Different, yes, and I know not why, but there's no wizard mode that I can find .

#7 5 years ago

If the software was "finished" my guess is that you'd be able to download it from the Stern website.

You buy this from Ralph Wiggum?

#9 5 years ago

I've learned my lesson with 'rumors'!

#10 5 years ago

I thought 550 was the price.

#11 5 years ago

Killing me over here! If anyone has a lead on advanced/prototypical/"finished" WOF software and would be willing to spread the wealth, please PM me.

#12 5 years ago

Or, you could be cool about it and dump/post it. I'm not sure why you would advertise you have it, then make it a point to tell people you won't share it.

Hoping it will pad the price is my guess. $4500 for a WOF seems crazy high. But hell, if someone will pay it, great.

#14 5 years ago

6.02 isn't finished, but it has a few interesting additions & some bug fixes. Each mode has completion goals (score this many points, etc)...if you don't finish the mode, you can replay it again. If you don't finish a puzzle, the game will show you what the last puzzle was in attract mode.

#15 5 years ago

I figured that. How do people like this end up with the code? I've gotten unreleased code before, and I made it a point to share it, seems like the decent thing to do. Maybe it'll get him a few extra bucks on his sale, but probably not.

Remind me when I'm in Des Plaines not to share shit with you

#17 5 years ago

So the only way someone can get this version is to buy this particular machine from you? Nice sales tactic

#18 5 years ago

Seriously, someone listing a mint/HUO TSPP was taking crap yesterday for listing it at $4400. Now this? If you want to sell at a fair price, I'll certainly pay $3500. GLWS.

#19 5 years ago

I think these games sold for around $4,300 retail when they first came out. software version don't mean squat, condition rules.

I just sold my last NIB WOF for $4500 in December.

The game was from another Pinsider as part of a trade involving my MB (no, it was not Ralph Wiggum). The only reason I mentioned the code was that I thought a potential buyer might want to know. This is a for sale thread after all. I think it adds some small value to the machine. Anyone who knows me on here hopefully knows I'm not dick enough to dangle something out there for no reason. When I got the machine the seller gave me the impression that he didn't want it given out and I told him I would keep it only with the machine and I'm trying to honor that agreement. If I thought it was some amazing piece of code that totally changes the game for the owners it'd be a different story, but honestly guys you probably won't know the difference. This is the nicest WOF I have ever seen, and this is just what it's worth to me as I'm in no rush to dump it.

I saw these, and I totally would have bought one if I didn't have this. Great deal IMO.

I'd definitely share if I had anything that cool, as would anyone. I think Keefer's eyeroll says it all.

#24 5 years ago

Great. Throw it up, I'm sure people will like to install it.

Quoted from jalpert:

Did the seller write the code? Did the seller own the code? Who was he to tell you want to do with something that wasn't his and he didn't own?

Who are you to tell him what to do? He obviously doesn't feel like copying the code for people. Big deal.
And I'm pretty sure this code isn't THAT hard to come by.
Maybe you would know that if you actually owned one?
Way to crap on a FS post.

If that's what it is worth to you then understood. Personal connection to a game is tough. But it's not exactly a hard to find (or even overly sought-after collectible, much less old game?) I would not personally pay a premium over market price for (although I actually like the theme!). My 2 cents. GLWS. I made you an offer.

Thanks, I appreciate the offer, it never hurts. This pin's certainly an acquired taste.

Instead of buying your machine... I'd like to buy a vowel

#29 5 years ago

It is pretty cool that their is some rouge code out there for this title. If it isn't official then the person who developed it can give it to whomever they want IMO... Would I love to have a copy for my machine for sure, but I had no part in making it and have no right to it or to demand to have it... I agree thou just because it has this code does not give it more value, it is the HUO with only 550 plays on it that is what will bring the value...

Sure, just PayPal $250 to me.

Thank goodness we have Canada to bring us the occasional cogent post. You're spot on with my thinking; I would be asking the same price for this game with old code. I just thought it was kind of a cool feature. I did make someone a promise not to copy it so that's case closed for me, guilt trips notwithstanding.

I wasn't going to say anything but I've been bugged about this a little bit so here's what the deal is.

I released a version of software, "6.00I" (for IFPA, I don't remember what tournament it was for) or some such, that basically added some competition mode stuff (derandomized wild card and big spin). Those are the ONLY changes from 5.00 which is the last public release I did while at Stern. 6.00I was circulated a fair amount amongst tournament types, mostly those running tournaments. (I didn't/don't care.)

While doing crapwork on other games (like IJ4 and CSI) I had time to add some of the stuff I wanted to on WOF. Many bugs got fixed. Probably more speech. I gave a test version to 1 person that I trust unconditionally. I don't remember what version I called it, but I don't think it was 6.02. I don't remember for sure, though. I'm not sure if he still has his WOF or not, but I doubt it's this game.

As someone stated, the main gameplay change that is noticeable is that there are "mode goals." The goal is simply to score x points before time runs out. If you get the goal, you won, great. The next mode, the goal would be higher. If you didn't win, oh well, the next mode, the goal would be lower. Also, you could replay the mode you failed, at 2x points. If you failed the same mode twice, you could play it a 3rd time for 3x points. If you failed 3 times, the game gave up. Oh, also for each mode you won, you got a "winnings x" for that ball's bonus.

IIRC there's no logic for completing the wheel yet, but the reward was going to be something like 10M for each mode won on try #1, 5M for each on try #2, 2.5M for each on try #3, and 1M for failed modes. If by some unfathomable stroke of luck you completed every mode on the first try, you'd get a bonus to round up the total to 100M.

And that's pretty much it. Oh yeah, puzzle solutions in attract mode, too. No one other than my tester and myself had seen the code until (I think) expo 2010. Trent wanted 6.0 for the expo tourney. For some unknown reason, I was contacted by Stern asking where 6.0 code was, 2 years after I had been laid off and several months after I had been left out to dry on a possible rehire. I said something to the effect of I have NFI, look on my computer. I guess instead of finding the 6.00I version that had been around for a couple of years, they decided to compile whatever I had done and left sitting on my computer (since I wasn't allowed to check in any changes after getting the boot) and release that.

So, the existence of 6.02 is solely due to Stern, and not due to me. I still do not have a copy of 6.02; my game runs 5.00. I have no way of making or creating any version of WOF. Stern released it to Trent, and whatever happened after that is between Stern and everyone else, not me. Other than having done the work on it while I was still there, I have absolutely no connection to the released image of 6.02.

If anyone cares, no, idgaf if 6.02 gets passed around or not. Maybe Stern does and maybe they don't; you'd have to ask them.

#33 5 years ago

Pretty nice to give us an explanation thou IMO you didn't need to... I have listened to your pod casts and understand the history behind this game... For sure this machine is a crappy theme but the gameplay is actually really good and if you were given the chance could have been a really good game IMO... Hears hoping Stern one day throws the pinball community a bone and allows someone to finish your good work...

Thanks for chiming in, Keith. From what I have learned I do not think this machine is from the person you gave the code to, but I don't feel right being the one to make the decision to pass it around, even indirectly. Going to keep the game and just enjoy it.

#35 5 years ago

I like Keefer

#36 5 years ago

My wife just loves wheel of fortune. If you deciede to sell it sometime. Pm me. I may be purchasing some trucks from Chicago and so transportation may work if the timing is right.
