Quoted from J85M:
Sounds awesome! A skillshot or 2 are greatly needed, any thought about adding combos? I know we have BOGEY shots, but I love hitting orbits followed by ramps or vice versa in Ironman as the speed cranks up and it would be great to see the pin recognise that?
I know I have read most of your posts regarding your plans so I apologise if anyone of this is stuff you have covered but regarding Jericho could you not just break up the scene a little so you have to earn the big "I give you the Jericho" speach followed by the actual missle launch and explosion as the last completed mode video clip? Always seemed like the part of the scene I felt should really be earnt and with your mod it would be a real visual/audio treat?
Rewatching the scene, you could always add a cool little Easter egg for performing particularly well during Jericho, at the end of the scene RDJ opens a drinks case and says something like "I'll through one of these in on any order of 500 million or more" I don't know if its something you are doing rebalancing the scoring but if so it would be awesome to have that little "Easter egg" clip for someone achieving high scores within Jericho to match up with actual jerhico scores.
Speaking of video clips, I always found whiplash MB to be very limited video wise, would be awesome to see more of the monico scene broken down into shot clips as the whole scene IMO is great fun and the suitcase suit is just awesome! War machine multiball always seemed like scenes from the party at the stark house in Ironman 2 or the team up against whiplash would have made most sense too.
First, and most importantly, I'm just building this for myself. There's no way I'd ever get through the legal maze and expense of making it legit to give to other people. I'll take it to shows and whatever, but I can't make it for other people. No interest in taking on the Disney machine.
The 'end' of jericho is the full clip of the launch/missle/detonation -- if you complete all the parts and hit the final shot. It's all the interim shots that are boring. There's nothing else to the scene, so every shot uses the missile jets starting up.
I was actually thinking about using the drink case as the extra ball animation -- still not sure what to do there. Might use the clip from age of ultron where he steps out of his suit and looks at it in sokovia.
For whiplash and war machine - I've already got what you're talking about. Whiplash has 5 jackpot clips and 2 super jackpot clips, and on top of that, a second run through whiplash uses the 'iron whiplash' from later in the movie - all the jackpots (again, 5 and 2) use the video from the last battle in the dome. It's pretty great. War Machine also has many more jackpot clips, 3 double jackpots instead of one, and a longer super jackpot. Stern only had the trailer of the movie to work from when they made the game, that's why Whiplash and WM are so limited.
Maybe DOD could be replaced with the battle at the end of IM 3 with all the IM suits in a big battle -- haven't dug through that to see if there's enough useable video there or not. There's a decent amount of Iron Patriot in IM3 too, that could maybe be farmed for something new -- but I'm not really thinking about too much new yet. Still trying to build the original game.
There's very few clips that are really useful from the hulk buster battle (clean shots of IM getting a shot or hit in that aren't too short) - but it works pretty well to replace the IM scoring stuff, as there's an easy intro, and a nice "firing" shot (IM scoring uses a single firing shot, too).
Now that I've cut apart the Hulkbuster scene, I actually got a lot more out of it that I can use than I expected - so that's probably a really good candidate to replace DOD multiball. So maybe I'll use the end of IM3 for Ironman Scoring instead.
