Quoted from cscmtp:

Had my first good game today since updating the code. Seems like it awarded me a ton more extra balls than it used to.

I also got a lot of EB. I had three in one game, so I reduced it to max 2 EB in a game. I can always increase it back to factory, but I didn’t want to start putting high scores on the machine using 6+ total balls in a game.

would anyone be able to swap 3 songs for me with the new (pro) code?

Quoted from Rensh:

Anyone know of somebody who has a smartdmd running with rel 180?
I am getting sofar only blackwhite so either I am doing something wrong or stern has revised the rs232 firmware interface.

Got a Beta release Pinball browser from OGA today and am plsd to inform that this did the trick. Have now MET 180 running on a PRO with J_M made Macro with sidechannel

Would it be possible to add “The Small Hours” song?

Uploaded the new code and all good, this game kicks more ass. Just wondering if colorDMD knows of a coloring issue when feature adjustment #125 Grave Marker Type is set to RIP tombstone instead of normal. I changed this setting to RIP Tombstone to check it out, and when the ball ends the bonus screen is not colored.

Sounds like they’ll need to update the color dmd code.

I don’t think that option was ever coded/colorised.

Some other changes since 1.70 became 1.80 will be, as i understand it from other posts in this thread.

I used an arcade button bezel instead of a hole plug for the volume switch.
Works great, and you can light it like a flipper button.

The new code may not have included a song from Hardwired... but I added my own with Pinball Browser!

Switched Battery for SOTB

I need to get my ass in gear and change out some songs.

Default settings on pro, I had my third CIU mode lit, but couldn't start it before draining.
230 million. I think my best score ever. It's for sure easier with this update, but still not easy...

You will get there someday, keep flipping.

I helped a friend load the new code Saturday night and played one game. It really improves the feel of the game and makes it feel less like chopping wood. It turned Metallica into a game that I didn't really care to own into one that's on a short list of newer titles that I want!

We both got 2 (and almost 3) crank-it-ups in our first game and 3 extra balls. Scores were around 200M. There's no doubt with these settings that EOL will be easily reachable! Does anyone know what gives you all the EB's on stock settings? If anything the game may be "too" easy now. I also got 3 cross multiballs as that is much easier to start now with one less shot. Game feels more balanced and less Sparky heavy now.

Great job Lyman!

Quoted from JMcDonald:

Stern sucks. A dozen games long overdue for code updates and instead they put out new code for a game widely already seen as well polished and awesome. Nice move Stern.

Felt good giving you your 100th downvote man... don't diss Lyman taking care of his baby!

I’m so glad that I picked up Metallica (pro), I have it along with AcDc premium which we assume will get a further upgrade at some point.

Someone asked me which I prefer of the two and I had to say Metallica although I have not played it enough to be honest it’s just so fun and has satisfying shots. The layout, music and code are fantastic.

It already got a "final polish" type update this year, and for a soon-to-be 7 year old game, I wouldn't hold my breath.

Which introduced "OI Mania" as an award at the jukebox that does nothing, LOL. So... I hope they flesh that out. I would imagine they would.

Why is this in the change log then? Oi mania is not working, it’s odd if they didn’t do something to address that.

#221 11 days ago

Sure, they might release a bug fix, I'm just saying don't get your hopes for the "further upgrade" assumption a few posts ago.

OK whatever.

I'm just saying there is a chance AcDc code is not final, you say don't hold my breath.

Great summary.

It isn't final. Lyman has said he still has changes in mind and bugs to fix.
