They were actually playing tandem both had one flipper.

I think we need a gif of T-Rex chasing behind Keith while he's escaping the T-Rex in the game...
(Time stamped to it happening)

That's Keith playing and this is me playing

Quoted from frolic:

Just like JJP doesn't make a Pro, Stern doesn't make a CE. LE vs LE is a fair fight. Premium vs Standard is a fair fight. But it also means Pro vs nothing, and CE vs nothing.

I would say Pro vs Standard - Premium vs JJP LE- Stern LE vs JJP CE Stern LE games and JJP CE games are run in similar numbers Pro and Standard are open-ended runs and neither Stern Premium or JJP le games will run 5000 units

Quoted from zaphX:

Wow. JP is pretty much universally regarded as the master in this area, and you don't find the animations in Pirates "significant?"
I strongly suggest you take a closer look. Even transitions between screens are done elegantly.

I was stating that the animations in Pirates are subtle, and not nearly as many varied ones as seen in this stream last night. Animations in Pirates lay in the background, behind gameplay. J.P. de Win has an impeccable design sense for font usage, font animation, transitions, and some original animations. Conversely, those Oompahs look very plastic and rigid.

His layout and screen usage in Pirates is unparalleled. He couldn't even match that level of work in Wonka.

#2706 1 year ago

Is it too late to change the theme to a pseudo Jurassic Park/Shaq Attaq inspired crossover?

#2707 1 year ago

What stuck in my head, and excited me most, upon waking up today, were the modes and fun nature of the animations most of all!

It feels like the spirit of the property was playfully executed, despite not using direct assets. For a game based on a theme indirectly, this team did an amazing job creating inventive ideas for modes.

I do wish they'd up their text animations, add more prominent drop shadows, and smooth or actually create screen transitions.

For me, that stream had me most excited about the screen, then the shots, then the sound design, then the art package, and lastly the toys. Which that order really surprised me, has me scratching my head!

I'm only 50 minutes in, but kinda feel like seeing more at Pinburgh, and holding off, would be the most fun idea!

#2708 1 year ago

I have nothing new to add, but the game looks great, stream was a lot of fun to watch, and I can't wait to play this one on location. Crossing my fingers that some local operators go for the Premium over (or in addition to) the Pro, as I'd like to see the ball-flinging T-Rex in person.

Quoted from CrazyLevi:

Maybe they are sick of you changing it every 20 minutes?
I get that you want to have a monopoly on all "next stern game" threads from now on but it is a little much. If you truly love your thread, set it free.

while some of us are on here all the time...

others are not and surely appreciated just the little effort to update the title when new stuff actually came out.

So they knew when to tune in for the deets.

No, a Stern Premium and JJP SE are now basically the same price. There isn't a JJP pro. Compare JJP CE to a Stern SLE if ya wish! You only want to compare a Stern Pro to a JJP SE to say the JJP game costs more lol.

Every company should have hired Keith, Lyman, and Zombie Yeti. They are my dream team.

I dont think we will get that combo for a long time. Keith's games dont need Lyman's touch as much as some other designers

#2716 1 year ago

Does anyone have a favorite Stern distributor? One that offers solid pricing and support? Definitely going to consider this seriously for a first Stern purchase.

Would you 2 just block each other or get a room so that every new game thread from stern or JJP doesn't end up like this?

Contact Zach at flipnout. Pricing is going to be pretty consistent from most distros so in the end it's best to just find a good person to deal with.

Question: does the t-rex on the pro eat the ball or do anything or is it just for decoration?

#2722 1 year ago
Quoted from fisherdaman:

No it's a static mech. I do like the eating of premium, ordered a pro myself as I'm impatient. I think the raptor gate is a feature that will be missed more.

Trent Augenstein at Tilt Amusements is great, just a few hours west of you in Ohio. In addition to being a reputable, high-volume distributor, he's a straight shooter and knows pinball inside & out as one of the best players in the world. I can't promise he'd deliver to Pittsburgh, but I know he gets around.

This is not a veiled advertisement. I get zero compensation for this; just someone who's had nothing but great experiences with Trent and Tilt.

I agree! I’m dealing with Trent. Stand up guy.
This is round two using Trent.

I apologize in advance as I don't want to go through 55 pages to see what the feedback is on audio/video.

I am a huge JP fan and this table looks cool. My concern is with the audio/video package. There appears to be zero from the movie. This is almost a 'Jurassic Park the Arcade - for Pinball' type of table.

As a POTC JJP owner, everyone was up in arms about having so little from the movie. Where is everyone at with this title?

Some of the callouts sound cheezie, again very arcade game like. Is this the future with movie assets and licensing?

The consensus seems to be that the animations are of incredible quality and that it doesn't matter that the actual movie assets are not present. Plot lines, John Williams' breathtaking score, and shot for shot animation remakes ARE present so it's not really fair to call it a "generic dino game." I think we also expect a bunch of callouts from Wayne Knight at some point but not sure about that.

I'm not sure why people aren't up in arms but I guess you can take that up with POTC owners.

Some sound effects/clips, but yeah, mostly zero.

That is exactly what it is really. A new Jurassic Park game.

#2730 1 year ago
Quoted from dnaman:

That pretty much nails it. Plot seems to take place immediately following the 1st movie with you trying to rescue remaining staff by evacuating them off the island, while capturing the loose dinos along the way, etc.

It looks super fun but is very much an arcade-take on the source material. Lots of stuff that doesn't strictly make sense but is fun to include in a more generic "Dino hunt" theme. No serious JP moments here, it's all for simple fun.

But, looks to be a very fun pinball game. Great rewarding shots, fun toys, sound, etc. etc.

#2731 1 year ago

Reminds me more of those jurassic park shooter arcades in terms of theme, not as much movie based just dinosouars

Im actually in Drumheller with the kids right now, fitting timing!

#2732 1 year ago

I am usually a PRO guy but in the JP case I find the extra cost of a Premium not only justified but also a necessity.
To me there are to many vital things missing on the PRO and I also find the art too "bright".
The darker art on the Premium seems more fitting.

No movie clips and limited assets are the exact reason I bought POTC and will buy JP. Creativity gets me excited. Movie clips are for lemmings.

#2734 1 year ago

Game looks awesome. Barring any QC problems like splitting cabinets, ghosting inserts, or soft clear bunching up around the posts, nothing stops the JP2 train.

If I was on your side of the border I'd look into flip n out strictly based on all the good stories I've heard about Zach.
We only have 2 distributors up here (that I am aware of)

Compare JJP CE to a money grab if you are going to compare games based on price

#2739 1 year ago

The stream yesterday was excellent, the game does look good. I'm curious if anyone is concerned over the linear nature of the modes, this seems to be one of the big issues with GB so maybe it applies here too?

#2740 1 year ago
Quoted from JY64:

I think the JJP CEs are basically a lark. They know not too many people are gonna pay $3,000 more for a game with just some art differences and a truly "limited" availability and they probably don't care. Each sale is a bonus.

Their bread and butter will always be their "LEs."

They were smart to truly offer a real "standard" this time around at a price that can compete with Stern premiums. I've played the low end Wonka and didn't miss the "wonkavator" at all.

With the $7500 price point I may buy a JJP game if they ever build a theme I want GUNS and TS not for me

Crazy that I never really saw people access the Wonkavator yesterday. I'll admit I suck, but it didn't seem incredibly active in the game at all.

I'm wondering the same about the T.Rex also. I saw it move a decent bit, but when does ball tossing occur? Couldn't find that in the stream.

Also somewhat missing in the stream was Jack Danger! He seemed to pop in just here and there. I kinda missed how he can break things up, attitude/vibe wise, when playing with developers that can often be a bit more on the restrained side. Really fun showcase of a stream overall, and has me genuinely interested in a purchase. Last time I felt that way was his Valentine's Day Pirates stream!

It's a game-to-game carryover feature. Some players may go entire game(s) without locking a ball. Eventually someone will lock ball three, and voilà. Or at least that's my understanding from limited play.

Yeah, I saw one locked in for awhile. When my friends, and I played, and stunk, we didn't get a single ball lock.

#2747 1 year ago
Quoted from mystman12:

I really like the simpler ruleset Wonka has. It reminds me of a late 90's era Williams game in terms of depth, and I appreciate that change of pace. Not every game should need to be deeper and more complex than the last.

But... but... Munsters! (I agree with you completely FWIW.)

#2748 1 year ago
Quoted from wesman:

I'm wondering the same about the T.Rex also. I saw it move a decent bit, but when does ball tossing occur? Couldn't find that in the stream.

It's pretty rare for him to toss it. Basically it seems like there are three or so T-Rex modes you qualify, and then feed the T-Rex. In one of those modes, he'll toss the ball instead of putting it back on the wireform. I think I saw the dino toss the ball maybe 3 times in the 2.5 hours of play. It's a neat effect that they may want to enable more in the software, but I can see how it can lead to some upsetting drains and possibly stuck balls.

Not concerned at all. That is the design of the game! i.e. you are on a journey across the island and the perks get better and more difficult to grab as you go. You start at the entrance gate and make your way to the visitors center. (I am not someone who thought this was an issue on GB though so I would imagine most will not agree with me )

Yes, like Road Show without the talking heads! Maybe someone can program the T Rex to sing Carlene Carter...
(I kid, this game is awesome, Pre for me).
