Quoted from Rdoyle1978:
Eric only said "looking forward to getting it out..." The beta was distributed to a handful of owners MONTHS ago.
Yep, POTC has had 2 updates since shipping. I'm not familiar with the beta code other than what's been mentioned on Pinside and shown on recent streams (including last night or the night before on Buffalo Pinball), but it seems like the main thing in the beta is the character changes that were initially posted in this forum by the programmer around May 2019? So that means this has been the timeline:
- May 2019: The programmer posted in this forum about upcoming character changes
- Feb.-ish 2020: A beta code was released for testing
- May 2020 - Designer said he's looking forward to releasing code
- Nov 2020 - crickets
Saying that's a long timeline for an update is an understatement. And with this timeline already being the case and having a beta out there for so long, for them to comment that they'll release a code update when the final wizard mode is done is just B.S.
