Quoted from underlord:

And we’ll all turn to dust. I’m enjoying the debates here, so at least the Stern Army vs the Jersey Boys has that going.

No idea what any of this means with regards to my post, actually without regard to my post. R we doing some Monday drinking perhaps?

I just need to know one thing. Where...they...are...

Someone make a web based ship tracker

Just paid in full and I'm #27 in line, if that means anything.

It does. I missed the first container by 5 games.

That's okay man!! More kinks worked out before we get ours! I've been over being a beta tester for years. I just want crap to work.

#3606 1 year ago

I want an LV.

I know i felt disappointed before I saw the amazing video.

But im ABSOLUTELY in now! Lol...

Crossing my fingers that an LV will be available for me.

#3607 1 year ago

I sent money too! I'm #16

I badly want my ALIEN now!! I'm excited

#3608 1 year ago

Today is 3 weeks since I paid for one of the air freight shipment that was quoted to be in my hands within 10-12 days - they haven’t even arrived at Cointaker yet. Expect delays and you won’t be disappointed. That was much easier when I had lower expectations but these latest videos have wrecked that

#3610 1 year ago
Quoted from rai:

I’m supposed to pay the balance due but I’m not sure I’ve seen enough.
I wanted to see what the LE looks like and see what issues people are having too.

If time in this hobby has taught us anything, it's that patience is a virtue. Especially regarding unlimited run games and games from new companies.

That being said, I think the new Alien looks great and I like a lot of the changes.

Where'd crazylevi go?
I think he's supposed to get a tattoo of Odin on his butt too...

Hes a sjw. Hit and run, he wont respond.

He has to respect the Pinside order of operations -- Kaneda is up first in the ass-tatt queue after his own Alien misfire.

Quoted from adamross:

If this turns out to not be true K said he will get a tattoo on his ass.

#3613 1 year ago
Quoted from Roostking:

Hes a sjw. Hit and run, he wont respond.

Maybe he is waiting until he can display his new tat? These things take time.

Levi has his share of wisdom and insight and delivers it with his signature entertaining wit. He is a needed antidote for a lot of the nonsense on this site.

However, sometimes he is way too sure of himself and a dash of humility would probably help him. But don’t go changin’ too much, Levi!

After seeing all the changes under the playfield and the focus on making these easier to assemble, this is a really awesome sight. The library of technical documents on the Pinball Brothers webpage is also growing and hopefully indicates a focus on after sales support. I know a lot of people second guessed the decision to assemble these at Pedretti but I think that PB is a lot more savvy than we thought.

Now just get these things delivered!

YES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! the quicker we get these SV on the boats the quicker we can start dreaming about the LV.

Probably getting close, those look pretty complete. It could be the ones heading to the ship for first shipment though.

Appreciated though after owning one for awhile this game is dam near perfect. Almost an experience in my view. Rather impressed they pulled this off and so glad the masses will finally get to experience what this game is all about. IF it wasn't for the reliability issues (my game and experience no debate please) I would never have sold it. So glad to be on the list with others.

95% perfect, needs a topper and a few extras for me to make it 100%..easy things already available. My usual mods are shakers, sound systems and lighting.. Might only need one of those 3. I can't wait to get the reveal in a few months on the LV.

I would really try to avoid adding lighting. That would be my only suggestion. If the side light blades come out (looking at you Pingraffix!) get those. Shaker use is also very weak in this game. Topper is the one you'll need - which is likely the one you're referring to.

#3625 1 year ago

Strobes...it needs strobes. I will wait and see what they implement on this one.

strobe on that Alien head !!! not sure how that never made it into the plans

#3627 1 year ago

Strobes and industrial beacons for the win!!

#3628 1 year ago

Yeah strobes would def work - like the OG mod when the Alien tongue comes out.

#3629 1 year ago

Now that recent video and pics have shown us what PB has been up to for the last couple years we are beginning to see the extent of some careful planning that has gone into bringing this pin back, streamlined and improved.

Having said that, I wouldn't bet against them already having a plan for the beacons and who knows, maybe even strobes.

They did say during the initial podcast reveal that there may be optional factory installed upgrades as well as user installed upgrades to come, but didn't want to introduce any more complexity in the manufacturing process early in the SV run.

We did hear casually mentioned in the podcast also that there are already output leads for a shaker motor in the SV's, yet nothing has been mentioned as to when they'll make their shaker's available.

My guess is we will see the beacons and other accessories introduced closer to when they begin promoting the LV, which will probably have all the extras included, as well as other goodies unique to the LV model.

I emailed them and they responded this morning that they haven’t thought about the beacons. Basically nothing. Now they could be lying to cover but I doubt it.

I find it really odd that they 'haven't thought' about beacons. Since the OG had them, clearly they had to consider them and decide to leave them off at the very least. I imagine it is completely about the LV.

Lol, I never believed for a moment that whatever topper they go with would be anything other than the beacons. We'll see!

Let's face it, we're not going to get any info on what surprises the LV holds until they finalize what's going into it. They said during the SV podcast intro that they have a lot more stuff they want to put in the LV than can actually fit in it.

So do I! But that’s what they told me.

Honestly, the way they’ve handled the rollout on this has been poor but they seem to have delivered where it matters (better parts, more reliability, better code, more features, etc).

#3634 1 year ago

ALIEN would be the game that should have that crazy 'steam' blast thing that THE ART OF PINBALL guy pitched for any any game a couple years ago.

I did ask PB about coding in a fog machine option for Alien a while back and they responded to me saying that they did consider doing that early on but reserved that option for another pin they have planned down the line.

#3636 1 year ago

I am curious how loud the fan is for the PSU..I had to change out the one in my Alice Cooper Nightmare Castle because the pinball machine sounded like a server next to my other pinball machines.

PB were mere investors in the OG Alien, remember. Heighway designed it. As they basically inherited what was left, I guess it’s not that outlandish that they haven’t given thing like strobes a great deal of consideration, relative to the community.

You’re getting all that from a single unboxing video?
Not trying to be “glass half empty” but let’s see what things are like when they exist in numbers in the field, with people playing them a lot, etc.

#3638 1 year ago

I just combined all the documents they have released so far into one large document, I'll add to it as more become available but I figure may as well get started building a manual since they are releasing things file by file it seems. Glad they are doing that though as it is more than Heighway ever seemed to do.

If you do decide to make some mods for this pin, can you PLEASE make a 3D hypersleep mod for it?

Months ago (1) pinsider had plans to make an interactive hypersleep chamber that would lift slightly whenever you locked the ball. That would be awesome, but heck I wouldn't mind if it just sat there in all it's 3D glory.

Just an idea.

#3640 1 year ago

There is already a 3D hyperpod with becon light

I have it in my OG full modded out

Check here I made a video

You can download the pod on Tverse search for alien pinball

That looks amazing!

That apron isn’t standard, is it?

Nice motion tracker on the shooter lane too.

I watched Aliens the other day (for like the millionth time).. if the LV looks anything like that I’m going to be all in. I really hope it has a playfield LCD.

#3642 1 year ago

Don’t forget the remake has an actual hyper sleep ball lock mechanism in that area and that it does move up and down to eject the balls.

#3643 1 year ago

The OG has the same mech in there it just does hold the balls. So you can easy mod it with the 3D hypersleep mod also in the old and new version as it sits on top of the hypersleep plastic

No the apron is fully custom also the lighting and the motion tracker same with the pods etc

Will upload a video later on the beacon light options I have in the game when loader battle starts etc

#3644 1 year ago

This is getting exciting. It's nice to brainstorm ideas. I love Pinstadiums , can u imagine a nice dark green / blue and super white flashes during game play. I could even go full on RED when XENo grabs ball....

Got to add this.....https://backalleycreations.com/collections/alien-pinball-mods/products/open-alien-egg-for-pop-bumper

We should have a contest-poll on when we think we will get the news on the LV. Winner gets a little prize.

Okay back to the JOB...later all.

#3646 1 year ago

I agree..play the game before you add pinstadiums..if ever there was a hard pass on that product..this is the game! don't do it!

Quoted from Dee-Bow:

Agreed.. it's disappointing that people just want to throw Pinstadiums on everything, when they haven't even seen the lighting in the game! And it's an Alien theme, it should be dark and dank.

#3648 1 year ago

I'd rather have violently infected piles than Pinstadiums...

#3649 1 year ago

I own the OG with the upgraded light system so a bit more lighting and the apron mod with build in led. NO pinstadium as that will make the creepy feel to the game go away

#3650 1 year ago

I'd like to see the zeno react more to target hits. Mouth articulation and more magnet activity. Then when the ball snatch happens the future strobe lighting mod goes crazy.
