Quoted from J85M:

A loop the loop, a corkscrew or jump ramp where no brainers for this theme.
Pop bumpers as pistons instead of cheap plastic tyres would have been nice.

Looks fun, but i have to agree. A full loop for sure and possibly a jump incorporated. There are a ton of loops in the art, none on the playfield...

Quoted from PinMonk:

Yeah. It happened in code. Code progress was fine for about a year, then a major code update broke the audits completely (it rebooted when you tried to clear them). They said fixing that was not an AP priority. Shocking. I couldn't believe what I was told, especially after working to push Houdini and talk up AP with the operator I was helping. That was the end of the AP route experiment, which sucked because the game was actually earning well.

Pardon my ignorance on routed games, but why would audit #s trump earning #s and cause the route operator to get rid of it, if its earning?

Quoted from Beechwood:

Just like Mustang-Corvette-Indy500-Nascar... they may be good games. I don't know.

Will the drop to $6200 kick off a round of price realignments around the industry? That's $100 more than the current MSRP of Stranger Things Pro. Granted, you have to pay shipping with AP games, and nobody is paying MSRP for Stern games if they are not completely clueless. The market is saturated, and about to be even more saturated due to the number of titles that are about to be released. A slowing economy will mean slowing pin sales for a lot of HUO buyers. Will we see some dog-eat-dog tactics and more aggressive pricing/discounts among manufacturers to stay competitive in the coming months? This could be the the second shot shot of a new pinball war. Remember, JJP lowered the price of Wonka SE last year already.
As for me, I still think the big market disruptor of 2020 is going to be Punny Factory

Stern is loving them some Covid-19! If the HUO slows much, not many nascent pin companies will survive. Which sucks.

Quoted from jwilson:

So the game looks like it might be fun, but I have to speak up about the screen. Look at this screen capture:

The numbers are unreadable. This has been somewhat typical for AP games - using multiple fonts, with too many colours and not enough contrast. I didn't really comment on the previous games but now it's game 3 and this stuff is still happening.
Please guys, look at how Alien and Dialed In do it. Spooky has been good as well with ACNC and now R&M. Those are the gold standard. Lots of reference games to look at. No reason for this to continue.

I used to rolleyes PinMonk when he critisized the the fonts and whatnot . I chalked it up to "Most arent watching the display when playing" then I saw this pic and thought ok, this is over the top horrible...

Quoted from o-din:

Yep, it should be easy to pay the rent and overhead on that huge new building they just moved into when sales slow to crawl..

They will be the one who survives is my point.

#1193 1 year ago
Quoted from o-din:

You guess.

You know? Ok let me rephrase, one of the ones who survives. If this covid 19 panic keeps up, many nascent pin companies, will not make it. Im fairly confident Stern will.

Quoted from PinMonk:

You ALL will come to the light eventually.
Well, unless you work at AP. Muhahahahahahahaha...

Lol. First thing i thought when i saw the screenshot was yea, Im wrong. Still not sure on the animitations while in play, but if this is still an issue, then art direction is still a problem overall. Plus, loops missing on a hotwheels theme that has loops galore in the art..

Quoted from mbwalker:

I think the backglass looks sharp. The monitor offset doesn't bother me.
But...despite the fact that I'm seriously artistic ignorant, I think it would have been really neat to just grab the missing backglass art (where the monitor is at) and use the display to 'fill in' that missing artwork for when the high scores were shown (i.e. the orange track loop continues thru the display). Almost an illusion that makes the display disappear. Might be tough color matching tho.

So i just saw this on FB. Either they fixed it, or bad initial pic. Much better..

Quoted from Bublehead:

a few quick twists of the screwdriver and that car spinning problem would be gone... I favor modders coming up with something less vertigo inducing...

Im just hoping that its a place holder? Since it hasnt been officially announced, the employees arent talking about it, possibly something is still coming to replace it. I mean, that really cant be it, can it??

Quoted from TreyBo69:

I don't recall that. Was it at least a nice shirt?

Same QC person in the shirt line, as the pin line, soooo.
