Quoted from Zitt:
I'd like to see a "website" hosted on the P3. This website would give us RO access to the high score menu... and maybe a synopsis of the setting (Profiles) of a given machine.
Implementation details aside, developing a network-connected game that can track player statistics and not making those statistics available to the player would be an embarrassing omission.
Quoted from frolic:
Gerry, I've noticed in your videos the upper playfield seems kind of dark. I'm not sure if that is a video artifact with the LCD or if there is not a lot of light.
It's some of both.
- The playfield LCD completely overwhelms the video camera, making the upper p/f appear MUCH darker than it really is. I've gotten a few emails about this, but I don't remember a single person ever saying the upper p/f is too dark after playing the game. However, many have said we need more flash effects - see below.
- We haven't developed a lot of light-shows and flasher effects for the upper p/f yet. As is our normal dev sequence, we focused on game functionality before flash and polish. More exciting lighting effects are coming.
Regardless of the above, our new playfields support 15 additional lighting elements. We plan to use some of them, and we'll likely leave some for modders to use (ie. to highlight their mods).
