You’ll be waiting for code for a long time! GB hasn’t even had an update and like someone said earlier once the new machine gets released you’ll be waiting even longer

Hopefully you are incorrect. The GB 1.13 code is great and the work that some of the pinsiders did to polish it off made it fantastic with the addition of new songs.

I'm pretty sure GoTG will hit 1.0 sooner as opposed to later, but after that is unknown. 1.0 seems to be the new benchmark of when Stern considers a game 'complete'. After that, well it's anyone's guess unless Stern Of The Union mentions something.

Topper is mounted and working. Height is 9”. Easiest install of any topper I’ve ever added. Unscrew 4 screws on top of the head, set the topper on the head, screw those 4 back in. Ruby the wires down the built in hole. Plug the two plugs into spaces shown.

Side honeycomb areas flash in a fast pattern. Center area rotated through different LED colors. Interestingly, all lights shut off on the topper during game play. They start back up once your last ball drains. Did not notice anything during game play. Not sure if this is a setting or a code issue or that’s just the ABCs of the topper. My .02.... Very happy with it. Maybe a tad overpriced from what I see now. Great construction. Would buy it again. Finishes off the game nicely. Tried to post a video but no luck. If anyone knows how to do that, PM your email address and I’ll email you the video and you can post.

Quoted from Lucysuros:

Anyway, I'm looking at the Guardians of the Galaxy rule sheet (http://tiltforums.com/t/guardians-of-the-galaxy-pinball-rulesheet-wip/3338) and, sadly, a lot of it is Greek to me. I've done a bunch of searches online to see if I can find something that's written in more lay language and that annotates the playfield but coming up empty.

Here are some examples if anyone is willing to explain these to me....

@lucysuros ... Good questions! Since all of them are based on the information posted on Tiltforums, I'd suggest copy/pasting your questions and posting them in that rulesheet thread on Tiltforums. Here's only one answer for you, because school just called, and I have to go pick up a sick kid from the nurse's office.

Quoted from Lucysuros:

How do I know what the jackpot shots are? During MB the whole playfield is crazy lit up.

You're spot on. Essentially, EVERY major shot with a blinking arrow is lit for a jackpot (JP). Specifically -- and as noted in the rulesheet -- each flashing arrow shot is lit for two jackpots. Meaning: the first time you hit it scores a JP, but the shot arrow stays lit, because you can hit it again for a 2nd JP. After hitting a shot's 2nd JP, the arrow quits flashing, indicating that a JP is no longer available at that shot.

I've noticed often in Groot multiball that Groot's mouth will stop part way open (or part way closed, not sure which direction it is moving) and will not respond to being hit at all until multiball is over. This does not allow the player to lock any more balls during the multiball. The mechanism itself seems to be working fine. Have other people noticed this behavior before. Anyone know what causes it or what can prevent it? Is this simply a coding issue that needs to be looked at?

Additionally, I have never seen the Groot mouth behave poorly during normal play, this only occurs during multiball. Maybe something about the mouth being hit twice in rapid succession?

Thanks,
Ryan

Unfortunately for me, Groot always has his mouth is stuck open.. (The orb also does not work).. Waiting for a new motor controller board to arrive to fix that. But before I updated to .85 I did have various oddities across the play field. Have you updated to latest firmware ? What was your original ? If this only happens during MB, i might think it is software related, I might know in a couple days if the board replacement fixes my issue..

seems to be code issue. I have noticed the same thing on our game. Only in multiball

Thanks @Whysnow, hopefully this can be fixed with firmware.

And @Zucram, I'm at V0.85. Originally had V0.61 in December and have kept up with the code releases.

Ummmm this sounds broken? why would the lights not be on when the game is being played and not interact with anything in game. Has this just not been supported yet in the code?

That's fair. I'm referring more to the types who every time new code drops they bitch because it's not for the title they wanted, or some crap like that. News flash. It's not all about you. Can't you just be happy for those who do benefit, or at be least indifferent, or at least not bitch? Maybe it's just me and I'm turning surly.

I tried a game of each. Right now I like it with the movie lines turned off.

Now if we could get an option to turn on or off individual songs you could hear just what you like. Say if you liked only 2 of the 4 songs, you could then turn off the ones you don't care for and leave the other two on, or whatever combination worked for you, 1,2,3 or all 4 songs.

#1234 7 days ago

Installed the new code 0.87 and played a few games.

Initial thoughts;
- Groot Multiball does not seem to score as much, so, good.
- Orb Multiball seemed much more lucrative, so better balance.
- when in between modes, the generic blue hexagon screen is gone. Now a mostly static shot of the Knowhere head.
- A bit more custom speech. Rocket calls out the multiplied shots by name now.
- Light show no longer obscures top rollover lanes after a ball save, so shot multipliers are a bit easier to get
- While the last code added the progress screen towards Immolation Initiative with the Dark Aster, we now have a second progress screen towards Save Xandar. Graphics are a planet with orbits, and a colored hexagon animation lights up for each completed mission.
- Didn't hear Cherry Bomb, so they might be saving that for something...
- Rocket kicker seems a little lower powered now. Still surprising, but not as deadly.
- New different orchestral music when in double scoring now.

I'll add more as I think of them....

Later,
EV

Hey nice write up EV- think you hit most of the highlights.
Kind of cool graphic now on each lit shot when in Broker Mode.I personally like the Orb MB better than Groot MB- had a very lucrative Orb MG tonight for an Orb total of 235,000,000 and change .
I am curious if anyone has seen Quills Quest II mode? The last 2 updates- it is non-existant on my game.I completed it twice tonight and graphics for both Immolation Initiative and Save Xandar- but no phase II mode.

#1237 7 days ago

Ok I am not a Stern hater (look at my collection) but how can you miss Yondu from the beginning. I had .66 on my Pro when I got it, here we are at .87 and nothing? Really? give me an annoying whistle - something. It just shows carelessness at best indifference worst case.
I do like the light show additions and the fact that the ramps now have a sound associated with the opto trigger . The sounds are delayed due to distance from ramp entrance to opto but there is a sound reaction to the shot now. Also thank you for removing the ghost spinner reference in the pro.

Tried to update last night, but kept getting an error that the update failed to unpack. I was using a different USB stick than I normally do (as my regular one took a trip through the washing machine).

Tried quick update, full update, verification on and off. Same result. Besides reformatting my USB stick and downloading the code again, is there anything else I should be trying?

Thanks

The actual file is a zip file that needs to be unzipped first to give you 2 files. Why they decided to not use .zip and make it .spk (the same as the install), who knows?

Hi all, New GOTG Pro owner.. NIB as of a week or so ago. I noticed a real problem today when the rest of the game room was turned off and now I can't not hear it.. The woofer garbles and crackles like mad.. I also noticed that the entire audio range is coming thru the sub? Is there not a crossover to only let the lower frequencies thru to it? Anyways, it's making all the audio sound like garbage coming out of the pin

Is this a known issue? Need to call Stern? my GB Pro sounds amazing and does NOT do this.

I would first start by reseating the connections on all of the speakers /subs, then check the grounds. If those checkout then I would suspect you may need an audio board replacement from Stern. I hope that helps.

This is what I feared.. I already checked all the connections, I will recheck and reseat and give Stern a call. Thanks!

I'm just curious why Stern isn't able to start with a base of code that already includes things like this.

- added slingshot power adjustment.
- added an adjustment for auto ball launch power.

The .87 code seems to be a big list of changes; what do you think of the impact to gameplay?

Played .87 last night and it has some nice touches added to it.

Only had a little time to play but I like the direction and progress I was able to see. Good news.

More plays later today to dig in deep.

Yes I have been playing it a bunch (.87LE code) and it’s really starting to come together. The light show is what stands out the most for me and the call outs during modes is starting to make this great shooting game a much better player experience. Good job Stern and keep it coming!! A couple more updates and this will likely really make it what we all hoped it to be.

Played new code a bit. Really good update. Everything is moving in the right direction. It's really starting to come together. If this was the code at launch, it would have made a bigger buzz. Looking forward to putting a bunch more games on mine.

Still needs more regarding the Magna-Force insert and magnets in general. They are one of the reasons I bought the LE.

#1247 6 days ago

just reading through the update it seems this code has changed the way your going to play greatly. With cool lighting affects added in as well.

I cant wait to load it up and play.

No more groot only for highscore.

That 10x multiplier for jackpots and specific lighting of ramps to show which ones sounds lucrative. So now theres incentive to completing modes.

For those that have played is that strategy the way to go or is it now just shoot orb MB>? Hopefully its the ladder and both are very viable.

I had not noticed on any previous to .87 plays, but something I did triggered a loud / powerful: 'I AAMMM GRROOOOTT'..

Quick question:

Is the magnet supposed to grab and hold the ball when it is released from the orb shot on the pro?

#1250 6 days ago

its supposed to hold/affect the ball yes
