Reduced flipper gap to standard size
Looks suspect

This ones obviously a joke.

Quoted from PinLen83:

I think the whole thing is a joke, and not a very.funny one.

#303 43 days ago

Reduced flipper gap made me smile

I won’t be amused if it ALL was a joke.

I would bet money that its a total hoax.

Quoted from pipes:

Thought I'd drop this here since this is the official code laziness thread. It has since been deleted. Friend sent it to me but by the time I checked it was gone.
Gracias Stern.
[quoted image]

Oh man! Really hope this is true. Bit concerned with it being labeled "1.14" as last change was "1.13". Hoping it's a big update. 29 months coming this Tuesday!

#307 43 days ago

Guess we will hear if this is real or fake come tomorrow with Sterns June Stern of the Union.

Everyone's going to block Canadian arcade tomorrow for this nonsense.

#309 42 days ago

So is it a joke or not.

#310 42 days ago
Quoted from hoby1:

Gotta be.
Whoever pretended to install it yesterday would be posting everywhere by now with breaking news.

#311 42 days ago
Quoted from Arcade:

or Stern has asked them not to share it until they announce it. Timing is very close to tomorrow's Stern of the Union address, should hear something then one way or another.

#312 42 days ago

Unless there is some way to correct the size of the flipper gap with software (gotta see that one! ), this has to be a hoax.

#313 42 days ago
Quoted from Spelunk71:

The change log was a joke someone posted here, separate from what Canadian Arcade posted.

Has Stern ever timed an update with a Stern of the Union announcement for that "surprise" reaction?

And only one person getting it downloaded before it disappeared, I find suspect? I'm sure there are people on that site constantly just waiting to see something. These guys were only ones in the right place at the right time....fishy.

Yeah, could all be a hoax. After waiting nearly 29 months for a code update it's easy to believe anything lol.

#316 42 days ago

Unless they are beta testing it.

Confirmed?! lol

#319 42 days ago

So glad I never bought GB pro. It was supposed be my first game, but we drove home with AS pro instead that summer.

#320 42 days ago
Quoted from PinLen83:

Whatevs.[quoted image]

Picture now deleted from their Instagram page, up vote about "beta testing" removed from here, picture of update also removed from Facebook page. If it was a joke I think they would have admitted it and left the pics up. My guess, Stern asked them to take the pictures down. That's what I'm hoping for at least!

#321 42 days ago

This logic makes sense.
Why remove a joke?
Plus everyone including me has screenshots to prove it was there. lol

#322 42 days ago
Quoted from Arcade:

Same reason why you’d remove something that pisses someone off.

I’m a for jokes, don’t get me wrong. There’s a time when you say “Ha! Gotcha!” and move on.

#323 42 days ago

I sympathize with the people holding out hope that it's real, but don't build yourself up for more disappointment. It's clearly fake.

#324 42 days ago

I will admit that is a pretty good fake DMD pic. I assume they edited the version themselves as it doesn't look photoshopped.

Really brutal though lol.

The “4” doesn’t look right. I’ll admit, I got really excited once I saw it, so much so that I’d believe almost anything I saw without looking too deep into it.

Jokes on me ::sigh::

Been checking this thread frequently just dying for someone to tell your AS pick up story. It's so much more epic than I expected. Thanks bud.

No problem. Have fun your GB. . Who brought the dog....who brought the dog.

Not to get in the middle of something that seems personal between two people, but this knock on GB always make me laugh. There are five modes that you can play without playing WBTD. And you can get to the mini-wizard mode by playing just two of them. Why wouldn't you do that? Just because you choose to start with the same mode every time is your issue. Or were you a plunge "exploit" fan and didn't choose at all?

Which mode do you start with on AS? I'm sure it's a different one every time.

#329 42 days ago

Stern you better be looking at these posts and finally end the crap and give a well overdue update.

Quoted from Willy39:

"Ghostbusters remains on our schedule."

#331 42 days ago

GB for Stern must be a real cluster fuck,
I mean how can this game take so long to bring a code out amazes me.

We will release a code update when this is done, oww wait, when that one is done, oww bugger when the next release is done.
FFS just get someone to complete the code and move on.

So glad I sold MunLE!
another shit storm - Enough Dwight games for me!

P.s I noticed George Gomez read my message on facebook regarding GB code and what I thought, But no reply!
Seems the way Stern works.

Wish Bally Williams were back to kick their (_*_)

#332 41 days ago

Sadly another copy and paste update for June. Wait now stands at 29 months, nearly 2 1/2 years...

#333 41 days ago

I'm done defending this game.

#334 41 days ago

GB ROI update. Projecting to be at 100% early 2020. Probably will still have 1.13.

I set a calendar event for 8 weeks after Munsters 1.00 came out. I was not holding my breath prior to that, but I think if we don’t see a GB update by 8 weeks after Munsters 1.00 it won’t happen. Shame too because there are a lot of Stern games I want. There are also a lot of other options and will support them instead.

4. We will update Ghostbusters code.

Now you tell me which is the biggest lie.

#336 41 days ago

It's because Dwight is too proud to see that it is flawed, and doesn't really want to do it. We all saw the interview...

#337 41 days ago

Can’t imagine how long we’d have to wait if Stern hadn’t prioritized this in Nov 2018. We might be still discussing this 7 years from now. As it stands we may need to hold out another 12 months, tops.

#338 41 days ago

I’m done.

Gonna go play a few games on my pro now.

Well, Stern has left me no choice.

Gonna grab the Pop Bumper sound from “The Sopranos”, edit some words, and install it on my GB Prem.

“Where’s the @#$&*%+ Code?”

#343 40 days ago

The worst part about that interview is Dwight saying that "Are You a God" shouldn't have been listed on the rules card and that he doesn't know if it will end up in the game. That's complete BS. Are You a God is an advertised feature on the game and if it doesn't make it into the game that's false advertising by Stern.

Stern could be taking a completely different approach with this game and come out and say "We hear you, we are going to address your concerns, and deliver a great code update for Ghostbusters". That would create a bunch of goodwill but instead they are doing the exact opposite.

#344 40 days ago
Quoted from lpeters82:

I would agree with that. It has become a bigger deal, simply because Stern has seemly treated it as a punchline for the past 2.5 years.

I stand by my earlier statements, Ghostbusters code update is a punchline for Stern. I do think some here were over reacting initially, the code is fine, but not polished; however after stating there would be a code update and not delivering people have every right to be upset. The way Stern is handling this is beyond frustrating. They owe to their customers, who spent thousands of dollars on their products, to provide a more detailed explanation on the status of this update.

Agreed. Saying it's on the schedule isn't good enough at this point. I want to know what has to happen before GB is worked on in a dedicated fashion. Once upon a time we were told Star Wars 1.00. Well that's come and gone. And then that programmer has gone to 1.00 on the NEXT game. What gives? Don't have it on your schedule, it's time to make it your priority.

What boggles my mind is that pinball is such a fun product, and a cool one at that. Stern should be embracing the fact they are the leader in this recreational hobby and be engaging with their customers and fans in a manner that reflects the industry they are in. This isn't something as boring as washing machines... or even Dunder Mifflin paper. This is a colorful, vibrant industry that deals with freggin GAMES.

Yet despite all that, these overly scripted blurbs from their marketing (and probably legal) group sound so forced... so prepared... so corporate... the opposite of how one would imagine a company in this industry to operate. They don't need to be wildly unprofessional, but hell, stop acting so robotic with this all.

Something like "Regarding GB code, we hear you and apologize for the delays. Our programming staff is currently tied down with our next two games, and here's a peak at one of them (insert zoomed in teaser pic of something small). We aim to have GB code completed by the end of this year, and if we don't meet that deadline, Gary will take a shot of raw goat milk during the next DeadFlip gameplay stream of our latest title (insert second teaser pic)."

Boom. It's an update, something to generate hype for an upcoming game, and something fun. Obviously I swung the pendulum a bit far in the opposite direction with the raw goat milk, but I think somewhere between goat milk and their shitty canned responses, there's opportunity for much better and EFFECTIVE communication.

Quoted from lpeters82:

sorry but no (from a "player" point of view)

the general idea is there, OK
but code is still buggy, scoring is unbalanced, things are missing... its actually far from being complete, and for sure need more than just a polish... :/

That would make sense if they had any intention of doing the code update.
