Quoted from Rarehero:

One has nothing to do with the other. Lyman's not working on ST.
Also the cannon "modes" as you call them isn't a big deal. We don't know if they should be modes or were meant to be modes. You make the cannon shots & the insert goes solid. In the case of Metallica, we know they're supposed to be modes because the picks light the inserts, you hear them say "My mode just started!" but nothing actually happens.

Are there already super ramps, super orbits etc shots? Maybe the band members could correspond to these types of modes?

ACDC is arriving tomorrow and I'm ording a MET premium next week. Pinball is good!

Be nice to have an idea of when band members are coming. Getting close to a year since it shipped.

I can't handle another MEt update . My head would explode like when a DJ drops the bass! (SNL)

That's my guess for what the band member modes will be, basically Star Trek captain's chair. Lyman isn't usually a mode guy in the traditional sense, like the box o' modes on TOM. (Spider-Man being an exception.)

No, not yet. The issue here is what are you going to do on a pro?

I mean, you've got pops, orbits, and ramps... but there's no spinners on the 4th one. Super Sparky? Super End of the Line Lane?

Super Combos maybe.

This has to rank up there with one of the dumbest things Stern has ever done. Was anyone seriously going to spend $1500 more to get the spinner? Which is a cheap part. Totally boned the game by gimping the Pro artificially like that.

And I mean the whole game, because now Lyman has to either ignore the spinner for the most part, or make rules that are better and make sense for Prem/LE and stupid for the Pro. Nobody wins with that. Should have left the spinner in place.

I agree spinners should never be excluded from pro versions on any game. It's not like a big expensive toy. It's cutting too much out.

At least I will have found one thing to agree with you on today.

I'm just glad they didn't cut the metal ramps. Seems almost odd that they cut spinners over metal ramps though.
