What are all those pop up squares??

Quoted from DCFAN:

You could put a fan in the dragon's mouth, silk paper and LEDs that would trigger at certain times and that would look like real flames.

Exactly what I was thinking. No real fire, but some of those look real good!

#144 6 years ago

Some of them look very realistic...even up close!

Is this the best thread for discussing the playfield layout, or is this strictly a gush thread.

Quoted from PBFan:

Guys, companies miss deadlines all the time. Boing was very late with their Dreamliner, Airbus was late with their A380, Bombardier was late with their C series jets, Microsoft and Apple miss deadlines all the time and so on and so on. Stern misses them I am sure but they do not go public with their deadlines (they are internal). Why do you think everyone bitches about Stern Code? - because it is late. In marketing almost any product, research has shown time and time again that in most (not all) cases you are better to get to market early with a buggy incomplete product than late with a perfect product. Why? Because consumers (us) are stupid! We are impulsive and no longer hold companies accountable. Once price became more important than customer service it opened a new era, one in which companies do not have to be as accountable to their clients. We will buy it anyway. When it comes to code in which safety isn't an issue (like pinball code) this isn't the end of the world when deadlines are missed because you can work on code improvements after the fact. However, if you produce mechanical items, layouts which are poor - then no amount of code can improve that.
It isn't like the pinball industry is any worse than any other industry. Everyone relax and enjoy the hobby. Enjoy what you have and try not to fret about the small stuff.

You're too smart to be here! I'm putting you on "Ignore" !

Quoted from PinballSTAR:

This is MY party for MY customers and any anyone who wants to come see the game. It is NOT JJP's 'marketing' event even though Jack is going to be there - so don't equate whatever I do as a distributor to what JJP is doing to market their game - they are much smarter than I (and you) in that regard and know what is best for their product.

#5650 4 years ago

Some of you guys act like he's not releasing the pin just to spite you. Believe me, he wants it out more than you do. Things happen. When it's ready, it's ready. How many times does it have to happen before you realize that. If you're not built for the pre-order and wait concept, just don't do it.

#5716 4 years ago
Quoted from SadSack:

Wishful thinking and the words of a proven liar?

Quoted from SadSack:

but he has repeatedly been proven to be a liar and that is one description he will never shake.

Quoted from SadSack:

I have nothing against Jack

I think you're an a$$hole....but I have nothing against you...

Quoted from Razorbak86:

I got a chance to see something pretty special a few weeks ago while on a family vacation in Britain.

VERY cool! Thanks!!

#5723 4 years ago
Quoted from SadSack:

Look how people still like you

Please just refer to my first comment which many people seem to agree with...
Get a life!

Quoted from musketd:

Hoping the production version of THE HOBBIT will be at allentown

Yes, I want to play Hobbit and Pinball Circus...

Quoted from Pantor80:

Has there been any talk about a topper?

Not yet.....good show!

#5758 4 years ago

That's what it's all about!

#5762 4 years ago
Quoted from HoakyPoaky:

The only thing I've ever heard about a topper was this design by Illvjr, posted in a long lost bag end thread about 4 months ago. His quote from that thread....

That's what I ment....

#5866 4 years ago

Fun game...but I sucked! There were some players that were hitting the ramps, trolls, etc at will! Sheesh! I took a video...

#5870 4 years ago

It would be great if Jack gets the Star Wars license!

Quoted from daudioguy:

When I talked with JJP they asked if I would help with The Hobbit audio package as well. I am thrilled to work on the JJP hardware system.

So, is it still possible for you to work at Stern?

There are 601 pinsiders who own Woz and yet Jack just criticizes pinside

Should he not express an opinion?

Quoted from Roostking:

Soo, JJP saying it's pinsides fault. Got,it...

We HAD to move the shit show from that other thread to here?

#6922 4 years ago
Quoted from lowepg:

JACK is the one that weighed in on the Jpop fiasco..

I know...but that's his OPINION. We all have them. No matter which way opinion goes, someone is not gonna like it.
The lawsuits are going through...let's just see what happens. Let's not condemn someone for sharing an opinion.

#6930 4 years ago
Quoted from lowepg:

Sure... but its also OK to keep them to oneself

No one here does THAT!

#6931 4 years ago
Quoted from SadSack:

Hey, Ted, you can downvote me all you like, but maybe Jack is just needing a stern talking to.. like you did to Kevin. How'd that one work out for everyone?

Still being a jackass?

Quoted from fatality83:

I wouldn't have expected the company to survive a few more months. People asking for refunds, even hardcore JJP enthusiasts backing out. All the signs were there JJP was a sinking ship. The investors truly were a saving grace to JJP.

Gee, if we're gonna spec on stuff, I heard that JJP was making soooo much money that investors wanted to jump on board. They are now making an offer to buy Stern. All the signs are there....

#7935 4 years ago

Planned to go, but found out there is a family party we're committed to....arghhh!

#8122 4 years ago

I know I'm in the minority here, but I enjoyed the Hobbit films a little more than the Lord of the Rings films. Granted, I'm more into sci-fi, but that's how I feel.

#8173 4 years ago
Quoted from SadSack:

And if it was a 100% cgi cartoon, you may have even liked it better. But for many of us, special effects are icing on dessert and not really that important in a well written and acted movie.

I don't care much for CGI cartoons. I like the sci-fi films such as Forbidden Planet, War of the Worlds, Day the Earth Stood Still, This Island Earth, The Thing, Invasion of the Body Snatchers, Time Machine, Harryhausen, etc. My favorite film is It's A Wonderful Life...with Citizen Kane close behind. Not a big fan of Harry Potter and that magic stuff where the rules are all over the place. A wizard can create a "force bubble" and explode rocks, but has trouble fighting a regular man. Hell, just make his heart stop!

I like hearing this!

Each composition is luxuriously long and few will loop during play. David says, "No pinball has ever had such an 'epic' soundtrack."
