It just stays on one face now. I know they "intend" to include metamorphosis in the future, but even that I believe is only as a wizard or some other event further in the game. The one thing that kept the original BoP cool despite the shallow rules was the personality and the coolness of leveraging the face transitions. If the faces are only used deep into the game, that is a huge missed opportunity. I don't see why they don't at least use different faces incorporated into different modes. Based on what I've seen so far, I'm afraid all the personality of the bride is gone and now it's just this game about fueling the shuttle. I'm interested to see how/when things develop.

The video shows the multiball which moves to the mouth face. face rotation at 7:55.

I agree, I like the music from last year's version much much better. Not sure exactly when or why it changed. Would be cool if we could use that original score instead of the current one. It was much more upbeat and not so dreary.

It's really weird to see people discuss boring music, without having the 2.0 machine or maybe even played it a couple of hours.

No, the music is not boring. If it is (on your varying mileage), copy over whatever you like. To c:/dutchpinball/corresponding directory... You may start a custom sound pack that isn't 'boring as hell'?! Geez...

The music is different than it used to be. We don't need it in our houses to determine that, nor to have an opinion about which we like better. I didn't say "boring as hell" (that was another post), but why can't people comment on music after hearing it? If he said the gameplay was boring as hell, you'd be right to say "wait until you have it" but with music, um, you just have to listen to it.

I have certainly tempered my enthusiasm over this project during the last couple months, but I'm still eager to see where it ends up and hopeful it will someday meet the original expectations. I'm an early pre-order and have played the game multiple times at several shows, so I feel I'm entitled to have an opinion about the game. That said, I don't understand why there are so many people, like you, that apparently feel this game is above critique.

Gotta agree with cheeks. The new music is pretty boring compared to the old sound track. I hope we can get the old track and directions on how to put it in. It was exciting and up beat. This track does the opposite to me.

dreary is a good way of putting it ! im thinking of going on the second run of the pre-order list but... if thats the sound track... im not so sure. just waiting to see how this all turns out.

Two thumbs up on this post. One of the reasons I ordered this kit is because of the music that was shown to be a part of the kit. I guess now it's not. Okay, I can figure out how to change that if I don't like it as my good friend Tom Collins (no jokes it's his real name) and I have done with CCC. But...part of what I am buying here is software and dots and music and it seems the music was changed without notice. Dag nab it, that's not good.

I don't know about calling him a friend, but I've definitely done some drinking with your buddy.

Just a couple of magnets. Nothing game related.

BUT WAIT! That IS the same music, by golly! I went to DP's to YouTube Channel and there it was, the intro video done in 2013. Same music! MY BAD! The music used in the two videos prior to that was simply background -- I remember it being upbeat...but it's clearly not a part of the soundtrack of the game if you listen closely...and after a good listen I think the spacey music in the DP game is suitable if not down right spacey-cool!

The US kits should ship any day now from what I've heard. This thread should hopefully get some life soon.

#871 5 years ago

sounds about right, there was a minor change needed.

Was it the change of the color of the plastic around the display so it will match the limited black edition?

You get it, right Calvin?

The 3 way cable instruction should be changed with the kits going out. The display should have it own power. The fuse no longer should be changed. The 3 way power cable won't use the video power hookup (might even be a diff cable, i don't know)
