Lazy seller there, and actually you are a good example of how that laziness can lead to unnecessary disappointment :/

Indeed! At least I'm a good example of something!

Has anyone else had an issue with their machine crashing during gameplay and resetting?

I’ve had the game for only 5 days and this has already happened to me 3 times.

Just now I finally made it to the flipper meister mode, got my score up to 10.5 million, and then the game just dies and restarts.

Come on American Pinball, totally disappointed by this.

Is this happening to anyone else?

My machine got delivered to me with 19.6.5 and I updated it the other day to 19.7.27. It has crashed while the machine was loaded with each code version.

Thanks,
Ross

Please contact them. https://www.american-pinball.com/support/service/ or PM ROSH or BarryJ here.

Let them help you. You'll be glad you did.

Highly unusual - I am curious if you have a bad fan in the computer. Those sound like symptoms of heat buildup

So I actually just went back to the game and manually put it into the flipper meistro mode again. Once the 2nd to last ball drained (thus ending the multiball mode and being left with 1 ball), the screen went black and the game reset. This is how it happened the first time also. It’s got to be something with this mode.

Anyone willing to put their game into this mode who has the updated code to see if their game crashes once the mode is ending?

I think my fan is running fine, as I can always hear it running.

Thanks,
Ross

Hmm interesting, I don’t really know much about Houdini, but interesting that happened to you. Thanks for the response.

I may have fixed this a week or two ago, but Josh and I will examine the logs you sent and make sure it is indeed fixed. Apologies for the trouble.

I made this topper for Oktoberfest. The idea came from another member. I had to heavily modify them to fit with low ceilings. They can be hard to find in pairs but best place to check is ebay. If this doesnt make you want to have a beer and play then nothing will.

That's awesome!! How did you manage to get the bubbles in the beer!!!??? I want it!!!

#213 44 days ago

New Oktoberfest owner here. Did anyone have any issues with the door under Otto's bar when they first turned their game on? If his door is open, the stepper motor sounds like it is trying as hard as it can to close, but nothing is moving. The door works fine in test mode and seems to not be hung up on anything. It only happens when you turn the game on and the door is open or partially open. If you turn the game on and the door is closed, there is no issue. Obviously the door isn't going to be closed every time the game is turned off. I'm afraid one of my kids is going to turn all of the games on and the motor will burn out! It's really loud too.

The old scaefer beer signs have them. Works on a bulb heating a tube of fluid and a mirror behind it. Thanks!

I've had one or two reports of this from Barry, and have asked production to alert me if any game coming off the line has this behavior so I can then take a closer look and be able to test a fix. My understanding is that it is fine once you start a game. I don't think there is a risk of the motor burning out.

I assume you are the latest code.

Welcome to the tent!
I havent had that problem but the door does make electric sound when nothing else is going on. Not too loud though,same as grave marker on metallica.

Where's the best place to get them? You mentioned eBay... I guess I search on bubbling Stein lamp...

#218 42 days ago

Thank you for an honest answer Rosh. Yes it is the latest code. I reinstalled the code and nothing changed. I also opened a service ticket. Looking forward to hearing back and getting this fixed. Here is a video of what is happening. I turned my Batman 66 on to see the difference in sound. Around the 2:10 mark the noise starts when the game boots.

When you get a chance, go into settings and in Features turn Otto 'Off'. Then re-boot and let me know if you still get that loud buzz. Just want to confirm it is the door and not Otto creating that sound

#220 41 days ago

Thank you. I did and it is definitely the bar door and not Otto.

#221 41 days ago

I have a fix for it, but no way to confirm until they find a machine with the behavior or we do a beta code release.

Hey everyone,

today I started my Oktoberfest with Otto. I really love this game after just a few hours of playing. So many tent modes with different challenges, cool shots and funny callouts. Especially for a German it´s even more funny.

I got no issues so far, what really makes it a perfect first day.

For me it seems like a keeper for a long time.

Please tell me more!

I would love to know the lyrics in the song at the end of the game. To me it sounds like "I knows it, I knows it".

Sorry for being late with my answer, but LTG already sent a perfect link including the translation. Thanks bro! "Prost" or "Prosit" just means "Cheers".

Funny translations and strange things for a German are...

..."FÜD". It simply doesn´t exist in Germany. Not as a word or any meaning.

..."Schnitzel on a stick" (like found on a plastic near the bumpers). Never ever seen it in Munich or anywhere in Germany. But it´s a nice idea to offer it in 2019

..."Stein", which means stone in German. The original "stein" on the Oktoberfest is called "Mass" (or Maßkrug). It´s a huge glass with 1 liter of beer: https://www.oktoberfest.bayern/wiesn/oktoberfest-2018-was-kostet-mass-bierpreise-aller-festzelte-im-ueberblick-9947993.html There you can see the prices for a Mass in the real tents (tent = Zelt).

This is a quite thread for it being Oktoberfest! I just installed pinstadiums to cut down backglass glare and brighten the playfield. I play in a dark arcade so for some in bright rooms it may not matter. I think this is a way to reveal the world under glass. So much more pops like sparkles on the bumper cars and the inserts that say whats going on. Most of all the bad glare on the bar door I had to lean down to see whats going on since I don't like using the lcd. Definitly more festive!
