Quoted from harryhoudini:

Can you make them show (using buttons)? I don't think I've seen them.

Yes, but when you skip with the flipper buttons it goes in "sections" and the wanted posters aren't the first part of the section, so to see them you have to either leave it alone and watch, or skip to the beginning of the right "section" then wait a minute or so for the wanted scroll to start.

On the one here, the wanted scroll follows the black screen with "GAME#" on it by itself. But only sometimes. Most times it will skip the wanted scrolling. If it does, you have to flip back to the black screen and wait 20-30 seconds again.

Quoted from harryhoudini:

Yes you keep hitting flipper to cycle through stuff in attract mode. You have to cycle through everything 2-3 times. It shows the pictures on its own eventually but you can cycle to them too.

#8603 1 year ago

Huh. Thanks guys, I'll check it out

Couple game questions that I've been trying to figure out lately but can't figure out the rhyme or reason to them:
1) Occasionally a skull light on the playfield will turn from its regular color to white. Anyone know why this happens? It turns back to it's regular color again at some point, so I'm guessing it must be a signal about something related to game play but I can't figure it out.

2) During Tortuga multiball you can occasionally add a ball by hitting a jackpot. Anyone know what causes that to happen? Is it after hitting a certain number of jackpots or hitting the scoop for a super jackpot?

I think the Tortuga add a ball can be the "gold" targets getting completed (there is a voice quote that says "Spell gold to add a ball" during tortuga.

Plus there are the other usual ways to add a ball (Pirate lanes, map awards, mystery rewards...).

I am curious about your other question myself!

My guesses:
1) Skull shot turning white signifies it as next constellation shot?
2) Not sure about jackpots, but completing G O L D targets during Tortuga will award an add-a-ball. No limit on these.

Quoted from harryhoudini:

I don't think so. When they show up in attract mode, you can scroll back and forth through them with the flipper buttons. They only come up once in awhile on their own.

What forum are you posting on about that relationship ? I've got to read that.

You can get to the pics with flippers. Just have to use the flippers to fully cycle through everything 2-3 times and then they’ll show up as you’re flipping through.

Seems like this should be more prominent... I mean, go through all the pain of including a usb camera, facial detection software, frame the pic, style it, etc. and the result is hidden away? At least an option (like turning on and off the tips.. which are annoying!) to show them immediately, as part of the normal rotation, etc. Next to the high scores...

I agree its odd, but as a home player where 99% of the pics are going to be me making different faces it is pretty moot.

I would rather they implement gamplay fixes / improvements with the time they have available.

Anyone do anything with the spare mylar? Where does it go?

[quoted image]

Most people put the square Mylar under the lock bar. I did.

The sling Mylar (half-moons) are for the slings. I did not.

Some used it for the BP. I did not.

Hope it helps!

#8614 1 year ago

Adjusted the 3rd flipper to stop a lot of the SDTMs but still get every 10th or so star map drain through the flippers. Would be great as a previous poster suggested for there to be an optional 2 second ball save after release. Just seems a bit of a cheap drain.

Make sure you’re current on code. It should be yanking the ball back with the magnet when the post drops.

#8616 1 year ago

Thanks, yes on 0.98 and the magnet does yank it, but every now and then it goes sdtm. Maybe 1 in 10. But considering how many chapters you need to do.... play field is levelled (I use a digital level). Maybe it’s just pinball! But it would be nice to have a ball save option that’s configurable in the settings.

#8617 1 year ago

Similar to AFM after Strobe Multiball finishes.

I think panzerfreak said it was like about 4 days.

#8625 1 year ago

Sure, why not.

==============================================================================
== Version 0.99 April 23, 2019 ==
==============================================================================

=== Game Code

* Updated some multiball jackpot assets.
* Slight improvement to wanted poster rendering.
* Changed and added HSTD wanted posters.
* Updated team credits.
* Fixed HSTD pages in attract mode and status report showing up if high
scores are set to off.
* Significantly reduce time Wizard Mode HSTDs are displayed in attract mode.
* HSTD posters now show during the first pass of attract mode then every 4
(was 4th pass then every 4).
* Fixed missing movie backgrounds.
* Fixed cannon not firing during major choreography events.
* Fixed issue with Dead Man's Chest multiball targets availability didn't
match up with current difficulty level.
* Fixed Elizabeth not always lighting 3 chapters.
+ Added hat/eye patch decorations to HSTD photos.
+ Added parrot and skull images to HSTD photos.
* Fixed an adjustment name for Black Pearl Multiball.
* Multiball totals now show up at multiball end, not after grace period.
* Fix potential lockup in HSTD picture face recognition.
* Reworked how game locks in your character if you don't select via action
button (basically, flips after ball leaves shooter lane don't count for
changing your character since they are probably accidental in that
regard).
* Left orbit chapter post helper now only works during grace period, not
grace grace.
* Update social media page.
* Compass shot names updated.
* Fix "Null award" showing up in Tortuga Mystery.
+ Added an Easter Egg to turn off plundering for next game. The sequence
is: BLRLLRR where B = both flippers at the same time, L = left flipper,
R = right flipper. If you do it a second time, it will re-enable
plundering. Plundering is automatically re-enabled at game end.
* Map awards are now competition-friendly. They will be awarded, in order,
as follows:
- Points (starting order: 10K, 20K, 30K, 10K, 25K, 20K, 40K, 10K)
- Add-a-ball
- Light gold (starting order: 10, 20, 30, 40, 10, 20, 50)
- Treasure (starting order: 1, 2, 3, 1, 2, 1, 3)
- Bonus X (almost always 1, sometimes 2)
- Award gold (starting order: 10, 20, 30, 40, 10, 20, 50, 30, 10)
- Playfield X (if running, add 1x sometimes 2x; not, 2x, 3x, 2x, 4x)
The item first in list is awarded. If it's not currently allowed, then
the next award is tried. When an award is finally selected and awarded,
it goes to the end of the list.
- Plundering takes precedence over normal Map awards. Whatever the game
is set to, the game will approximately try to match that percentage when
it is available (not in a multiball). If the game is set for CUTTHROAT
(65%), then plundering tries will be successful as follows: NYNYYNYY
- Plundering is still subject to the Plunder Items adjustment. If
everything is allowed, then they will be awarded in relative ratios:
- 1. 5x gold (starting order: 30, 40, 50, 30, 20, 40, 60)
- 2. 4x points (starting order: 30K, 20K, 30K, 10K, 40K)
- 3. 3x treasure
- 4. 2x captain
- 5. 1x ball
A typical distribution would look like: 123124132112345
- If a selected item isn't currently available because of game state, then
that plunder chance is lost for that Map award and it will fall back to
a normal award.
- In competition mode, revenge plunder chances ALWAYS succeed.
* Extra Ball unavailable score set to 25K.
* Special points score set to 50K.
* Tortuga Mystery only scores points during competition mode now. This will
change very soon. Points scored are based on mystery level. Jack
increases the effective level of award by 1. Scores per level are:
1K / 1K / 2.5K / 2.5K / 5K / 5K / 10K / 10K / 25K / 25K
* You're own your own if you choose to play Liar's Dice in competition mode.

=== Core Code

* Added some system events to event logger.
* Fixed potential display lockup in rare circumstances.
* Start button dispatches on close in diag now instead of open.
* Fixed rare texture overruns in movies.
* Trough test enhanced.
+ Switch test now supports reflective optos.
+ Added some more error logging.
* Fixed a camera crash that could occur during factory reset or turn on the
camera disabled adjustment.
* Rollunder gate debounce time adjusted.
* Fixed ball accounting after ball search 4 (could possibly go too high).
* Abandoned devices now don't count as having released balls during ball
search.
* Version string of game now includes dongle flags and game trim level.
* Game won't refuse to start with missing camera files now.

=== OS

* Fixed an incorrect updater screen.
+ Support for Gen3 & Gen4 motherboards.
* Better display handling.
* Avoid thumb drive "corruption" after an update.
+ Starting with drives imaged from this version, ISOs will be able to save
system data (audits, adjustments, high scores, etc.). This happens by
default if the system detects a compatible existing version. It is
possible to reset factory defaults by following on-screen instructions
during imaging.
- Note this means the first time you install this version, your existing
drive will NOT be compatible, so you'll need to backup settings manually
if you want to keep them.

#8626 1 year ago

I thought there was an issue with Elizabeth...

#8627 1 year ago

Great update! Looking forward to playing it.

Added hat/eye patch decorations to HSTD photos

Made me laugh!

When is this going to be available for download, and is it a full install, or a delta?

Darn! No shaker effect for sinking the dauntless. Maybe next update

#8634 1 year ago

Or selecting character doesn't trigger flippers.

Full Install when it goes up on the website.

There's one in the code but something's wrong. It's high on the list to be sure.

#8638 1 year ago

Were you able to work the ball per game onto the pricing screen?

#8640 1 year ago
Quoted from GrandFireball1:

The only one under consideration at the moment is Weatherby Swann. Pretty happy with the balance of the rest of them.

Quoted from vireland:

No but it's on a list to work into all games.

#8641 1 year ago

@pinball_keefer would it be possible to hold the tilt bonus lost screen longer to rub it in? And for me to get a picture of it in the competition to get the highest bonus lost.

#8642 1 year ago
Quoted from Axl:

...or even better: make it like a HSTD to track, so everyone can later see the biggest bonus loser!!

Quoted from Axl:

Which suggests a great high score screen. Make an attract mode raspberry entry for highest bonus lost.

#8644 1 year ago

Ooh! That is a great suggestion! Who is the biggest looser

#8645 1 year ago

I’m assuming Break the Curse will be in 1.00?

#8646 1 year ago

Just a quick question , I am struggling to reach one wizard mode. (No luck yet)
How many of you have reached all 5 in a game and needs the final wizard mode ASAP?

Quoted from Axl:

3 in one game is my best so far. I'm saving all 5 until Break the Curse is in
