Quoted from dnapac:

I haven’t and don’t know anyone that has. My guess is, if you do it and it bricks the game, there won’t be any support for you from Spooky…but that’s just my guess.

I don't know if they won't help you, but Spooky has stated that there is a safeguard in place to prevent code swapping between games. I assume that has to do with the license being for a certain number of games.

#602 81 days ago
Quoted from Morgoth00:

If you decide to change the one post out I would do both outer posts, or the new angle would change the dynamics of the bounce back and drain easier off the PF.

Ah, right. If skinny rollover lane posts were used on the two front posts of the 3 post one, that might also fix it. Essentially make it like a sling with a mix of star and skinny posts.

Quoted from icyjones:

Has anyone dared load Ultraman code onto their Halloween or vice versa? Also, is this kind of talk ok?

Ah, I missed this being stated somewhere. I am mainly wondering so I can maybe make Halloween a little more kid friendly for my boys. My wife was getting a little nervous because she knows they well want to play it, after seeing it for the first time last night.

It's too bad as that would be fun to play with, I doubt that anyone would keep the swapped code on for any appreciable amount of time though. I had my Stern Shrek and installed the Family Guy code. Everything played as expected and I played it for awhile but I actually preferred the Shrek.

Just because Spooky doesn’t “support” it doesn’t mean it’s not possible - although it may be a huge pain to swap

I’m thinking the opposite, bring on the adult mode.

That would be sweet! So much will get added to this title over the next year. Can’t wait to see and experience the evolution!

So Halloween is on 82 and Ultraman is on 72 how exactly is that a 5 to 2 ratio what are they going to do runoff a whole Lotta Halloween‘s without any Ultraman when Ultraman reaches 100 Halloween should be at 250 Would be nice to know what’s going on with the numbers nice did they update but once a month or two is not enough not to mention haven’t seen any remarks on the current numbers being even

Maybe just the first 50 we’re 1 to 1….if they are doing around 25 a week, I would have thought they’d be in the 100s by now.

#615 81 days ago

It seems to be that they made 50 Halloween and 50 Ultraman. Then the previously stated ratio was going into effect.

#616 81 days ago

Mine arrives today. Are they arriving with the latest code?

I don't see any code updates on the website..

#618 81 days ago

For those trying to track this, I got an e-mail saying I'm in the next batch, and believe I'm no. 122.

Wish it was in time for Halloween but still looking forward to it. Hopefully some of Luke's projected improvements will find their way into this batch.

Quoted from icyjones:

Well, even after the first 50 of each it seems we’re at a 32:22 ratio rather than 5:2.

Maybe they focused on UM because code was further along on it or some other delays to HW. I’m a little disappointed with the speed of my order (maybe 163, can’t remember). Anyway, After following them and talking to the guys at Pinfest, I have a lot of respect for the company and will give them a pass for at least a little longer.

Quoted from Mudflaps:

#80 going on the truck today.

I just received an e-mail from Spooky saying that mine would not be out for delivery until next week. I'm number #70 by the way. This is after receiving e-mails 2 weeks ago that it would ship last week or either this week. Not sure how #80 is hipped out before #70?

#621 81 days ago
Quoted from Rdoyle1978:

Earlier versions of the firmware/software supported swapping code. However, I'm afraid that on all shipped games, a code swap won't work. It'll lock the computer up, and it will have to be reflashed.

#622 81 days ago

Shipping logistics is a nightmare these days. Drivers are in short supply, gas is through the roof etc etc.

#623 81 days ago

I can’t believe these undervalued spots are still for sale considering an early NIB HWN CE just sold for $15k (confirmed)

#624 81 days ago

The sold game was bought by someone who wanted a machine in their house for Halloween. A spot won't get you that. Someone paid a lot of money to have a cool item at their Halloween party, that is all.

#625 81 days ago
Quoted from mpdpvdpin:

I haven’t had a single inquiry since like the first day or so that I posted and I have an early spot that I’m offering at a small loss. I have trouble believing it sold for 15k. That is a massive premium for getting it a few weeks earlier.

#626 81 days ago

sorry, double post

#627 81 days ago

It’s been confirmed in the hype thread. Guy who bought it chimed in. Anyway, I think the value will increase after the next few updates and surprised that some people are taking losses on their spot.

I didn’t buy the spot with the intent to profit…I would rather take a small loss now and just be able to transfer the spot then having to deal with shipping, ect. I would guess many others feel the same way. There just wasn’t much of an opportunity to see the game before having to commit to the preorder.

ooooh let's not have people brick their games. I suppose this does not fall into "right to repair"

#630 81 days ago

People thought the UM code was farther along, but HWN was the first to get the store and modes update

Could be a number of factors. No worries, it will arrive shortly.

I posted my status so everyone can kind of get a rough idea where Spooky is at. I didn’t mean to cause hurt feelings for anyone waiting for their game. Spooky is cranking them out as quickly as possible! Relax and have a cold one.

I’m just glad you have yours on the way. A few days isn’t going to make a difference for me other than having to try and reschedule my day off of work to be home for delivery. Rather have it made right than rushed! I’m just impressed spooky replies so quickly - it’s a rarity these days. Thank you Morgan at Spooky!

#635 81 days ago

My point is not that you should attempt to make a profit it just makes the game look less desirable to have multiple spots listed for under deposit value and guys like Kaneda take screen shots of that and go “seeeee? This game is a piece of shit and no one wants it” which he has done on two separate occasions…if only to intentionally boost the value of his UM.

#641 80 days ago

Just wondering how wide the shipping box is? My doors are on the smaller side, so I’m wondering if I need to unbox at my buddy’s garage then bring it in the house.

Went through my front door with plenty of room to spare. Box is 32 inches wide one side and 33 on another. So choose the 32 inch side when bringing it through the door.. lol

I like how it rains so little in Texas your house doesn’t have rain gutters ….

My buddies houses in SoCals are the same.

And if you don't give them a pass? What shall you do?

With UM in the mix, then have 200 machines ahead of you, why worry?

I always unbox outside/garage it takes me about 5 minutes. I wouldn’t stress too much.

PITA, but remove the door and jam…or unbox it outside and cart it in. Where there’s a will, there’s a way.

#649 80 days ago

Just to clarify what was actually paid. Game had butter cabinet and was a CE. Have my 2 CE spots that were later for ultraman and Halloween. 4k in deposits for those two spots and rest in cash.

Indeed! Enjoy the ride. I just purchased a #955 CE pre order. Anticipation is a wonderful thing. I’ve been waiting on my TBL for a year next month. No biggie!
