New! Dark mode!
Browsing Pinside at night? Getting tired of all the white? Switch to dark mode using the button in the top right (or CTRL-B)!
I don't care either way, but obviously online shit is the future so just shut up and get on with it already.
People are going to put up fake scores, whom gives a shit? Let me go out on a limb and say most of you probably wont have a top 10 score on any fucking game anyway ok? You should be more interested in maybe getting together with some online friends or online leagues and having fun. We all know games are set up diff'rent yada yada, it's just for fun, not the Olympics.
Some people will like it some people won't. I don't want to online game at all with randos, but I've played some shit with friends and it' a great time.
Yeah but that new guy made that one game people that paid 12k for love...so...
Quoted from PtownPin:
Admit it...your just pissed you don't own one...
No I dont have any room at the moment.
I would absolutely like to put some time on it.
I played it at the VFW showcase (believe it was the 3 wheeled version) a little and at Marvin's a little as well. Marvin's version was pretty shitty quality route wise already, so I'd like to get on a nice working one.
Quoted from metallik:
"Continue" feature, but on steroids.
$0.50 per ball, unlimited buy-in.
How badly do you want to make that wizard mode?
This might actually work pretty well if the final score was total points divided by number of balls played.
Well we've always heard the buy-in feature didn;t work well on location...but maybe it's time to give it another try
I really think I don;t even turn my games up loud so a Speaker upgrade is pointless to me
Do you think it will come with huge fake speakers to put on your wall and then you can amaze your friends by removing the fake speakers revealing the tiny cube speakers underneath?! Ha...malls.
Quoted from konghusker:
Seriously, why is everyone jumping to conclusions that Bose is the only innovative thing coming? Who’s the designer? Oh yeah, Eric. You think his only creative abilities are to upgrade the speakers? Seriously people.
As usual everyone took a hint and went out in left field with it
Quoted from Roostking:
Im not as versed in pinball as you and most, but wouldnt a wide body slow down a pin...
Not really no.
EDIT: Or to put it another way, imagine Metalica Had an extra shooter lane on the right side to auto fire balls in during MB & an extra orbit on the left betwixt the fuel and left orbit. Wouldn;t necessarily make it any slower. If you pull a hobbit and make a totally wide open PF with nothing in it....than yeah that is the probable outcome.
Quoted from Yelobird:
They have managed this long to stay in business. Not sure why that would change because they are not releasing a game when We want to see it?
Well businesses tend to stay in business till they don't. I imagine what changes is not making any new products for people to buy. But I'm no business guy.
Also IF....IF it were true, I don't know why THAT would be surprising at all since the idea of GNfR has been sort of opposed to JJP since we first heard the rumor
Quoted from konghusker:
You guys are hilarious! So you guys had interest in these rumored titles for over a year now, but because jjp doesn’t deliver on exactly your timetable, your no longer interested?
I don't know what's so confusing aboot it. People save up monies to buy machines. When they get enough, they spend it on a machine. If another machines machine comes out that they get interested in, they spend it.
Now true, a lot of complainers probably are the deep pockets and can just afford another new games when it comes out, but not everyone.
I just assumed every successful business in the country has a morning meeting that includes thumbing thru pinside for easy ways to print monies.
Quoted from zaphX:
Everyone whines about how ineffective that teaser video was...but look at this thread that continues to rage out of control almost 2000 posts later.
Perhaps it was effective after all?
YUP! A lot of us have bought new pinball machines since this thread as started so um...Mission accomplished jpg!
Quoted from smalltownguy2:
I have not played much DI in the past, so I'm not 100% sure about smart-phone integration. Is there an app that allows you to interface with DI?
Well I own one and don;t know anything aboot smart phone integration either You were supposed to be able to connect via BT to the game and use flipper or have a MB or something.
I remember it kind of being pushed to the side, or people just not really caring.
Quoted from yancy:
Most of them are for show. I've passed way more "fast cars" in my Honda Fit than have ever passed me.
Fast cars, slow cars, car bros, sunday drivers, M3s, grocery getter....really the only universal truth is to keep slow cars out of the left lane. I don't know why it's so hard to grasp.
Quoted from dnaman:
So what are the thoughts when comparing a Stern Pro at ~6199 USD to this JJP Standard @ ~$6750? ($550 delta)
The thought is I don't pay anywhere near near 6200 for a Stern, but you have to pay the full 6750 for JJP.
Might have to pay freight and tax for JJP? My tax was covered before but I think I just saw LTG post something aboot a limit on deals these days?
