Quoted from Shapeshifter:

I guess get to 100m, then get 3x and boom!
Think my adrenalin would be off the scale

Haha. Closest I’ve been is like 92-95 million base. Then I just kept screwing up the timing of 3x and fire lane completions. My heart felt like it was going to explode!

Quoted from Snailman:

True. That would be nice.
But I'm not going to hold my breath. There's enough other really good code/gameplay and risk/reward decision-making in ACDC that I have no issue with the Triple stack lack of value.

I'll sell you mine for a good deal if you really want to explore the code a bunch. I never play it anymore now that I got a couple of my grails in the house.

Gone back to 1.68 while we wait for the oi-mania fix.

I know it's unbalanced but Hell's Bell's is so much fun on 1.68

Just hoping Lyman adds the 'thing' he has coded for completing 6 songs as that really would make the journey to encore seem less of a grind.

Quick question!

Pinball browser.

Is it possible to add call outs after songs 3, 6 and 9?

Thinking something like 'Half way to Encore, well done'! After song 6 for example.

I just need something to break the journey to Encore and there isn't a 'how many songs' complete insert or anything.

God dammit.

I think there’s one in the status report (hold flipper), and the jukebox (when selecting a song), and end of ball bonus.

I would like it if on your 12th song completion when you shoot the jukebox it defaulted to Encore. Made it there yesterday in fact and when it showed a song I was like nooooooooooooooo Encore should be ready.....! But sure enough I hit the flipper button and it was there - good thing I found it before time expired haha.

Quoted from alveolus:

Totally agree with the mini-wizard mode. Us mortals will likely never make Encore and as a result there is little incentive to work through the songs.

Dag Nammit!

#559 5 months ago

Being greedy would like higher scoring on lower playfield as players seem to avoid unless targeting encore.

Encore would be more fun with something after 6 songs.

Finishing 6 songs is tough for many of us!

#560 5 months ago

Or finally do something with the three cannon inserts

Any word on this sir_tankalot ? BM66 and Elvira have had endless updates (and yes they are great, thank you), yet the greatest machine of all time still sits there with bugs and a known update apparently done. If it's a license issue stopping a code release, we get it but, AC/DC is a masterpiece that deserves to be finished

#562 59 days ago

BM66 has had so much love, so yes, it's frustrating that AC/DC has had this Oi Mania bug for so long.

This game deserves to be finished and in Lyman we trust

#563 53 days ago

Curious if people think rules are balanced?

For the average player encore seems a million miles away and very little incentive, if any to attempt to play for it?

I know that when I play I never think about finishing songs to progress.

Am I missing anything or is the game unbalanced?

I think the game is pretty well balanced. The only incentive to go for Encore is to say you did it. When playing for score/competition, going for the wizard mode is rarely a good strategy for any game.

P.S. Please don't post in this thread unless there's an AC/DC code update.

No update yet - sorry!

But isn't that a contradiction as I have heard that Encore is one of THE best wizard modes in pinball?

I guess I was hoping too much for something after 6 songs,, a kind of half way to Encore celebration.

Encore is a bad ass wizard mode. I don’t know how I feel about a halfway (6 song) wizard mode. It takes long enough to complete all 12 songs, I wouldn’t want something added that prolongs it even more - unless your success on this halfway point wizard mode counts towards speeding up the Progression of the last 6 songs.

That would be awesome.

A touch of SOS in some shape or form.

I can dream

Cool thought,
Maybe each song that you “complete” by hitting all 12 song requests, equals -1 to the song requests to lite change song?
But in all reality, LFS is just doing additional code to this game because he wants to. Anyone complaining about ACDC code is just bitching to bitch.
It’s a masterpiece, oi mania wasn’t even a thing till the last update, now it’s a complaint that it isn’t there?

Disagree.

Complaining isn't the same as wanting an improvement.

Yes, it is a masterpiece.

Yes, Lyman is awesome for having pride in his work to offer continued improvements.

And it is a fact that as it stands Oi Mania is broken.

So, for this, yes, it is fine to want it fixed!

Go back to the code that was considered "final", where it wasn't even hinted to. Problem solved
J/k, and I know why you feel that way. I just have a good feeling that LFS is working on this in his "spare" time, probably not being paid. Therefore I cut some slack when it comes to this particular title being worked on.

#572 25 days ago

Lyman is a legend, no doubt about that.

I was more thinking that Stern would have got a quick bug fix to the Oi Mania, in the first week or two.

From memory last update was when they did final run of games?

#573 21 days ago

In 8 and a half hours the new song ACDC song will be released .... would be a perfect timing for the final update.

#574 19 days ago

AC/DC got the same reception as GnR is getting when it came out in 2012 as everyone was blown away by the light shows.

Stern's best selling pin?

What a great time to make the best even better?

#575 19 days ago

New stuff, sounds like AC/DC. Honestly didn't expect a new album.

now, can we get some new code to celebrate?

#576 19 days ago

Maybe a code update is a shot in the dark?

Could have fun with that song on a pinball game!

#577 19 days ago

I like the new song and sounds like vintage ACDC, unmistakable sound.

Sounds kinda like 1990 AC/DC, which I guess might be vintage now. Ha! Not a bad tune.

I like that song sounds like vintage ACDC almost like COD.

I never updated to the latest code, will doing so erase anything I added with PB browser as far as song changes and dmd changes to match?

So basically if I update I lose everything and no easy way to keep it?

You’ll have to reload the songs onto the new software patch. I still haven’t updated from 1.65 as I wait for them to fix oi’ mania. Don’t want to have to patch it twice.

That’s what I was afraid of.

Never seemed to be able to get pb browser to work properly on my Mac. Not sure I’ll be able to reload the music.

While we wait for Oi Mania, I was thinking the Tunes n Stuff would be more fun if random awards?

Thoughts while we wait?
