Rick and Morty is on Hulu in the US. Not Netflix.

#970 1 year ago
Quoted from SpookyCharlie:

I have seriously been called a sonofabitch more in the last 2 days than my other 51 years combined.
Apparently people are watching the hell out of season 4!
I'm in.

Reveal soon?

#1037 1 year ago
Quoted from delt31:

So reporting back after watching episode 1.
I liked it. Has a bttf vibe no doubt and the humor is good enough to laugh here and there. Ok I'm going in for more.
See pinball does open you up to new things! Haha

Never saw the show until this announcement. We are on season 2 now. It’s funny. Love the quantum physics stuff too.

Quoted from SpookyLuke:

Good point... hmmm

Well now my day just turned into smashing F5 on this thread.

#2006 1 year ago
Quoted from BillPinball:

SpookyLuke
"6. If the website sells out do not give up. Start calling distributors who will be able to sell there allotments at the same time as direct from spooky sales."
Do Fang Club members get first opportunity over distributors?
If all 750 go to Fang Club members are distributors out of luck?

Far as I know they give an allotment to distributors and then the rest go to direct sales on the website. Either way you buy, direct or through distributor, the fang club blood suckers edition or whatever are made first.

Quoted from gliebig:

Joe, can you reserve me #12?

I already beat you to it. Secret deal on the side.

#2210 1 year ago
Quoted from Potatoloco:

I really hope Spooky nails the price point out of the gate. There’s so many variables at play here with a great theme, limited run, manufacturing capabilities, consumer demand. The price point alone could be a huge home run for sustainability and gaining a ton of traction in the years to come.

I'm guessing base price of $7k like their previous pin? If I recall correctly.

#2211 1 year ago
Quoted from PinballSTAR:

FAKE NEWS ! That's like the 3rd time you've used that picture - hilarious...keep it up !

I can't help it, it's the one joke I have.

#2284 1 year ago

You have it close, however the distributor counts go usually based upon % of allocation. So if distributors are supposed to get 10 games in a batch from that week or whatever, if one distributor got 30% of the allocations and another got 20% and the rest got 10%, that means the first distributor will get 3 of those 10 games, the next one gets 2 of those, and the rest get 1.

As for knowing your number in line, you're asking for something they really can't provide. There are too many variables. No manufacturer provides this today to my knowledge.

Quoted from bgwilly31:

So to breakdown my thoughts on how this process is working .
Spooky makes 10 games the first week.
5 go to spooky direct customers 5 go to Dist. Im guessing it continues something like that the entire production.
But if 5 are going to dist. and spooky has 5 dist. then each dist only gets one game per week?
The problem is everybody is concerned with position. If you want your game as fast as possible. Which is the better route to take.
The major problem i see with what pinballstar described is you just click a link and pay and then cross your fingers and hope, after you are already locked in. I mean for all you know you may be #550 after you finish checking out and that would be terrible if you were hoping for one of the first 50 instead.
I think this is the concern people are having.
Id like to know my number in line before plunking down a deposit at least a ball park where im at in line.
Its like going to a restaurant, that you really want, and paying the bill before they seat you. You pay the bill and then they say it will be a 2 hour wait. Well i would have just ate somewhere else and came back another day if i would have known that.
So the obvious choice is take your chances with direct spooky sales and click as fast as possible, thats more cut and dry and easy to understand.

Quoted from o-din:

With my property tax of $1000 a year, I think I can manage it. After all, a house is just a luxury item.

Taxation is theft :p

#2316 1 year ago
Quoted from CKrueger:

Theft implies you’re getting nothing in return.

Theft means it’s taken without consent. But semantics are for another thread.

#2330 1 year ago

I need a reveal.

#2350 1 year ago
Quoted from 6S3NC3:

I will leave this here[quoted image]

LOL WHY IS THIS A THING

#2364 1 year ago
Quoted from rai:

I’m curious when it is announced to Fang club. Will it have a link to order? Also is it preferred to order from Spooky or a distributor?
Can some distributors chime in if taxes will be required?

Taxes depends on the state and the distributor. States that require the taxes generally don’t do so unless that distributor sells X amount in a year to that state.

#2433 1 year ago
Quoted from rai:

To however is in charge of reveal, can you announce when it will be revealed such as 12/xx at 8pm.
So it’s not just a random drop where some people don’t know about it because they’re sleeping or at work etc.

They don’t know yet I think as they are waiting for approval on artwork. But the game will be revealed before you can order it anyways.

#2442 1 year ago
Quoted from rai:

I’m saying Spooky should pre-announce when it will be revealed. So that people can be ready to look at it and order.
My point is there was a guy who made Orb for lotR but he would only make a batch of 20 and he’d just put on his web site whenever it was available. So if you weren’t aware it would be sold out before you even know it was on sale.
I’m not saying that Spooky knows when it can be revealed but when they know they could give a pre announcement like Stern does when they have some video drop.

They don’t need to pre announce the reveal. There will be days or possibly longer between when the reveal happens vs when you can actually order. So there is plenty of time to digest the reveal before you have to decide if you want to order.

#2444 1 year ago
Quoted from rai:

Ok I didn’t know that. I thought as soon as it was revealed it would go live for sale.

No. Per number 8 here from spooky.

Order 1853 ugh

#3098 1 year ago
Quoted from Bitbuster:

GREAT! All I'm getting is
Cannot proceed with order, please review before checking out:
Shipping Method

Yea that cucked me too. I'm pretty sure I would have been like 50 orders sooner if it wasn't for that stupid thing not loading right away.

#3111 1 year ago
Quoted from ThunderLips:

Payment finally processed... order 1850!

How did you get a number before mine, when I finished with my order like 5 minutes ago LOL

#3118 1 year ago

Dear spooky, if you want someone to load test your website in the future for stuff like this, hit me up and I'd be happy to do it for free using the enterprise tools I use for my company's own website. :p

#3299 1 year ago

I have to get to work if anyone else wants to pick up the list and update.

#3740 1 year ago
Quoted from SpookyLuke:

Keep in mind all spooky orders will be layered equally with distributor orders so your spooky order number does not fully reflect your game number. The girls will email all customers with there game number once this list is compiled. 4 games left.

At some point soon will you be letting us know rough idea on shipping time estimate? Or I guess we could extrapolate that based on LE number assuming they are built in order?

#3769 1 year ago

This has been the most exciting reveal and pin buying experience I've been a part of.

#3773 1 year ago

I just had to make that right there a key index post.

#3794 1 year ago
Quoted from SpookyCharlie:

Absolutely dumbfounded.... biggest day in Spooky history. Lots of emotional people here right now.
Thank you all. Every single one of you who have always supported us, and jumped all over this one.
Much to do now. Going to catch our breath for a minute and get back to making you all happy.
HUGE THANKS TO EVERYONE AT ADULT SWIM, JUSTIN ROILAND, CARTOON NETWORK, AND JOSH FREYDKIS!!!

This made my day.

#3824 1 year ago
Quoted from epthegeek:

So who wants to come over and beta test?
Oh hey, i can finally post this picture.[quoted image]

I'll come to muskego! That's only about 30 minute drive for me.

#4393 1 year ago
Quoted from sataneatscheese:

Okay... as there are a lot of people on here that have never seen, or heard of Rick and Morty... what is the one episode you would use to introduce them to the show for an overview. Surely not the pilot. I'd vote pickle rick episode but what would you guys say?

Pickle Rick or the Mr Meeseeks

#4501 1 year ago

Has anyone gotten their LE # and possible build date yet? I know spooky said they were going to go through and do that this week if I recall.

#4514 1 year ago
Quoted from 6S3NC3:

I think 50 Spooky, 50 distro is the build order. So if your 51 you would wait an additional 5 weeks for the distro build before the next 50 block came up again.

Damn that sucks for me I probably just missed the cutoff for the first 50

#4518 1 year ago

Fuck your shooter lane pic Jerry.

#4528 1 year ago
Quoted from DanQverymuch:

Between the 80/20 split and the people buying Fang Club memberships in order to order the game, you are probably in that first batch of 50.

I can only hope :p

I was order 1853 so if 1790 is the earliest reported number, that puts me at 63. If only 80% of those are BSE and the rest are standard and/or fang club orders, it puts me right on the cusp.

#4540 1 year ago
Quoted from vidgameseller:

you guys are speculating to much. Just so you know, the first 50 games are not only Spooky direct games. They really did do a good job of breaking it down for distributors to get games.
I do know that the distributor im working with has a couple games in the teens, and a few in the 30's, and a few in the 50's, etc
So I think that its (im speculating here) 10 games to spooky, then 10 games to distribuotrs. (2 to one, 2 to another, 2 to another, etc. Then another 10 to Spooky direct, Then another 10 to distributors split up again, rinse and repeat)

So distributors are already getting LE game numbers? No direct customers have been told their game number yet far as I have seen.

#4613 1 year ago

Someone explain it and I’ll key post it lol

#4708 1 year ago

Can anyone post some detailed pics of their "butter" cabinets? I'd like to see!

Quoted from northerndude:

Also, there’s already 5 locked Rick and Morty club threads that have been started, lol

They generally do not allow a club thread until people actually have the game in hand.

#4726 1 year ago
Quoted from Propsnsports:

Has anyone received there email yet that ordered direct?

I have not.

Quoted from KingPinGames:

I have a butter TNA if you are in the Wisconsin Dells area and want to stop over.

Thanks Chris, will take you up on that if we get out there any time soon. Also I've been looking to buy a TNA so let me know if you ever have one to sell.

#4737 1 year ago
Quoted from Yelobird:

Do be careful #f3honda4me asking Christopher for Any selfies of buttered up objects. You may be frightened by what he sends you!!!!

We text back and forth now and then. Should I be worried?

#4813 1 year ago
Quoted from donkadelic:

i was around order 70 on the site and just got a message that i'm around 350 in line, dunno how the math works out on that. kinda bummed but oh well.

What was your order number?

#4819 1 year ago

This math isn't adding up.

The earliest reported order number was 1790. And people had bought stuff the day before (fang club, tshirt etc) and had like order 1784 or somethig like that.

So, if 1785 was the first RM machine, 1875 would have been 90 machines. If they are split evenly between distributors and direct, that would be machine #180.

So how does that equate to #362??? That's 200 higher than we'd expect? Am I crazy? So where are the extra 200 machines coming in? Something isn't right...

#4830 1 year ago
Quoted from Whysnow:

It is not that hard to put it all together.
Some went to distributors, some went to spooky, some went to distributors, some went to spooky.
Your order number means very little other than a rough idea of when you will end up.

It is hard to put it together when it's supposed to be 50/50 between direct and distributors. The numbers don't add up.

#4839 1 year ago
Quoted from Tiki_Pinball:

I don’t think it should add up. Our order numbers vs place in line do not include the distributor allotment. Or bs vs reg editions.

Again, it's 50/50. 375 machines to distributors and 375 direct. If someone who was machine number 90 in the order direct from spooky, they should have #180 ish game number. Not 385?

Quoted from rolandthoms:

Machine #255
fired up

What was your order number?

#4841 1 year ago
Quoted from Whysnow:

Guessing that some distributors got more games earlier in the cue (honestly makes sense)

200 more? That doesn't make sense to me. That's a HUGE number. That's 5 months of machines just to distributors. If that's the case, spooky should have been up front about it.

#4845 1 year ago
Quoted from rolandthoms:

I called at 7:13am. no order #

Ok that makes even less sense. People placed orders on the site before 7:13am and have higher machine numbers than you.

-8
#4866 1 year ago
Quoted from Zablon:

time zones man..time zones.

Not when sales were opened at 7:00am. I adjusted for time zone.

Wow that's crazy. That means there's like 100+ machines before any direct sales.

Quoted from scruffypinball:

Order numbers =/ spot in line.

So the laws of physics cease to exist on your stove?

Quoted from donkadelic:

Ok...please tell us how we're misinterpreting these numbers?
1791 121
1792 122
1875 362
1882 369
1886 373
1910 393
1912 395
1977 476
1982 458
1986 461
2018 488

Yea this makes zero sense.

Quoted from Zablon:

Does it matter? Have we reached the 'whiney I want it now' phase?

Sorry but putting 100-200 machines in front of any direct orders isn't really whining, it's simply unfair.

-10
#4871 1 year ago
Quoted from donkadelic:

It's not only that, but theres like another 100 distributor games in between the first and second 50 online.

Right it's like 100 games, 50 direct, then anther 100 games, and then more direct. When you are getting a game 5 months later than what you had expected, people have a right to be upset.

-4
#4884 1 year ago
Quoted from Zablon:

You had no expectation. That's on you, no one EVER said that the order numbers said when you would get them. They actually said in the thread it didn't.

Quoted from Whysnow:

I think it is a matter of setting bad expectations for ourselves in that case.
Totally get being hopeful for an earlier game, but we all ordered And rolled the dice for when we would get in.

So, you go to a theme park or line up outside a store for that new iphone, and suddenly they decide for some reason, that they are going to start from the middle of the line instead of the front. That's cool? I'm just trying to understand the logic - this wasn't some kind of raffle system where your place in line doesn't matter. If that was the case, then spooky should have said so up front so people didn't bash their face in trying to order painfully through the website right at 9am central time.

Quoted from scorche:

Well, damn. There went my cheerful optimism of getting in really, really early.
I am order #1790 - the earliest of the posters here on Pinside. As you'd probably guess from the folks coming after me, my game is #120.
I am still super excited about getting a game in a few months - it just is later than I was hopeful for going off the conversation here.

See to me that's not right. Thinking you'd be in January cuz you were almost first in line only to find out oh just kidding 120 people and 3-4 months of machines ahead of you? Sorry, but that's wrong to do to your customers spooky.

ok....so they're doing like 110+ distro games up front and 150 distro games in between 143 online and 362 online....thats pretty messed up.

I'm 1853 and haven't gotten my email yet. Now not sure I even want to.

I have zero problem waiting my turn in line, so long as the "turn" time is decided fairly and evenly to all. This is anything but.

#4898 1 year ago
Quoted from bridgeman:

IMO- I understand people being upset. There may have been some expectations assumed by us, maybe because of a lack of information provided, but I don’t really think anything false was put out there by Spooky. Complaining about it on here doesn’t help resolve the issue, because there are many who are very happen to get on the pin and they should be. If you feel you were wronged, mislead or just weren’t provided the information you should have been provided with your $7k plus purchase, than in the future just complain with your wallet and direct your monies elsewhere. I don’t thing anything is gonna change now.

So the expectation of simply being fair to direct and distributors evenly across the board is unreasonable or abnormal? That's what I'm trying to understand. Spooky can distribute these however they see fit, so long as they are up front about it. If they are going to do something abnormal like 100+ games to whomever, then to direct for 50, and then another 200 games to non direct, they should tell us first.

#4935 1 year ago

They’ve always been upfront, this is how they do all their orders. Pay attention.

It's fine I'll take my game whenever I get it, but not being up front about a huge bulk of orders in front of your direct customers is not ok.

Yes there were a bunch of customers that also bought their fang club memberships, merchandise, etc. Oh and a bunch of people who bought from a distributor and went in to get there membership taken care.

So the order people got machines wasn't actually determined by the order they were placed on the website then?

Since the order and machine number went

Quoted from crazytown:

Regardless of your number it sucks to get excited over the hype of a new machine. Just to find out that you are just going to have to wait and wait ... would be nice if some how these companies could make the machines before they start selling them .

I'm just disappointed as I thought I'd be around machine number #100 based on the online orders going 50/50 with distributors and going in the order they were received. Obviously that's not the case, so being almost 200 machines higher is deflating is all. I'm still excited to get my machine, but that took the wind out of my sails.

#5046 1 year ago
Quoted from Morinack:

Y'all are crazy. I am so happy to be #427 in a highly limited pool. So what if the first 120 were reserved. So what if Spooky has obligations and a willingness to recognize their repeat customers.
This game will be awesome.It's not just the first 120. There are two more 100 + machine jumps after that as well.

#5099 1 year ago

I guess just the last point - the email direct buyers received said this:

""All customers have an even chance of an early number this way no matter how they buy. The remaining spots purchased from our website are layered in starting at #1 so yes you have a real chance of acquiring early places in line when you order direct!""

The earliest direct number we see is #121. The above seems to contradict what actually happened, no?

#5114 1 year ago
Quoted from Zablon:

Well, this is true. I do remember seeing this, and yes, what was stated after the fact does seem to contradict it. (unless they are numbering them differently for 'purchasers' vs. CN and friends).

#5248 1 year ago
Quoted from kbliznick:

So far you are having the earliest launch party of anyone outside of Adult Swim with #120!!!!

No there are people who bought through distributors who got at least as low as the #40s. If you bought through a distributor you had a decent chance at getting one of the first 70+ non reserved games. Looks like buying direct #120 was the best you could do. Which contradicts the email we were sent. It’s not the end of the world but I wish Spooky would explain why what they said is not what actually happened.

I’ll gladly take my game when I get it, or if I’m lucky I’ll buy an earlier number at some point. But I also don’t think it’s unreasonable for us to ask spooky why what they told us how ordering and game numbers would work is not what actually happened.

Quoted from rai:

I guess some people like to be in early like first weekend for a movie. It does not matter that much to me either way. I’m still waiting for my number but I’m assuming it’ll be in the middle somewhere my guess will be 300-400 ish.
However I do share the feeling of not knowing how the process played out with direct and distributer sales muddle the picture.
I guess once dealer numbers come out we’ll have some more clarity.

I know of several games in the 50s and one who was in the 40s that went to people I know who bought through a distributor. Some even bought two games and both were low numbers. These were not special or reserved games or VIPs etc.

#5265 1 year ago
Quoted from PinballSTAR:

Distributor and Spooky games were equally laid out by Spooky prior so early folks would get a relatively early number with Spooky if that's how they laid out their slots and you would get an relatively early number with a distributor as well again assuming the distributor is laying out their slots in same manner. It was a totally fair and well thought out way to do it. There is no disadvantage from buying from one place or the other. You're wrong on that.

Then why do the first direct games appear to not start until about #120 and even according to you, you have distributor games for customers who bought through you in the 50s? This is fair and no disadvantage to one or the other? I’m asking genuinely to try to understand.

#5267 1 year ago
Quoted from Shapeshifter:

They said they were mixing distributor games with direct.
At no point did it say ordering direct got you to front of Q.

Here is the direct quote from spooky:

1. We allow 375 of our 750 games to distributors. These games are preloaded into the list evenly across the full 750 spots.

2. We do that because many of our customers prefer to buy through their distributor who they have long standing relationships with. Would not be fair to build all spooky direct games first because that would essentially cut our distributors business. All customers have an even chance of an early number this way no matter how they buy.

3. Cartoon network has team games as well as spooky these will have to be built early obviously due to contractual requirements with licensing and suppliers.

4. The remaining spots purchased from our website are layered in starting at #1 so yes you have a real chance of acquiring early places in line when you order direct!

But maybe I'm misreading this? Is this a misunderstanding? I'm just asking for transparency is all. Buying through a distributor got you a chance to get a game as early as January. Buying direct, the earliest is April.

#5273 1 year ago
Quoted from ezeltmann:

He said "if that's how spooky laid out their spots"
Not just you , but everyone : If you have issues with ordering direct from Spooky , direct your issues to them.

Joe interjected himself to this thread so it is fair.

So I had a really nice talk with Kayte at Spooky and let me start by saying how awesome she is. She explained a lot more stuff about the ordering etc, and it made perfect sense. I encourage anyone else who, like me, was genuinely wondering what happened to go talk to her or Spooky (be polite!). I'm excited about my pin and look forward to owning my first spooky pin. I apologize for sounding like a broken record, and if I did have any misinformation in my posts it was absolutely not intentional.

While I love the quality of glass, it would be cool to be able to collect and swap translites, especially if they incorporate future content in the modes.

Chris (kingpin) is a great choice for a spooky distributor. Chris is a huge supporter and part of the Milwaukee Midwest Gaming Classic we have every year. The show wouldn’t happen without his help and all the amazing things he brings to it! Got my Monster Bash from him last show.

Quoted from KingPinGames:

If ANY distributor is asking you to pay more than the initial payment required by spooky, please let spooky know... and then find a better distributor!
here is the list of the Authorized Spooky distributors (to the best of my knowledge). If you don't see your's on there, then ask Spooky to confirm
Pinball Star (PA)
KingPin Games (WI)
Nitro (WA)
Lock When Lit (MO)
there are obviously international distributors too, but i am not as familiar with them.
fyi, initial payments required by Spooky are
Blood Sucker Edition $1525
Standard Edition $1000

#5713 1 year ago
Quoted from TheNoTrashCougar:

Sure!
The locking mechanism is not that complicated. It is a horse shoe loop with 2 drop targets at the openings. There is a center post right int he middle of the horseshoe. There are 2 sets of optos on each side of the mech behind the drop targets and one set of long throw optos in the front of the drop targets and the scoop. The long throw opto set is there to give the software a heads up that there is an incoming ball at high speed. It's actually a super cool assembly that uses all off the shelf parts, which I am a huge fan of. In this configuration, you can load 3 balls into the lock.
The phases of the lock mech can be this:
Open Loop:
Both drop targets down, with no attempt to capture a ball. This will act as a super high speed turn around from both directions.
Ready to capture 1 ball:
When a lock is qualified, the mech will still leave both drop targets down. A ball can be captured by shooting the lock in either direction. This will capture the ball on one side.
1 ball in lock, but number 2 not qualified:
This is a cool situation, both drop targets will be up in this case and will allow you to transfer the ball from one side to another, or use it as a captive ball by putting center post up.
1 Ball in lock, ball 2 lock qualified:
The first locked ball in this case will act as a captive ball and ball 2 can be locked on the opposite side. The drop will be open and ready for the second lock on the opposite side of where ball 1 is captured.
2 balls in lock:
After ball 2 is locked, the balls can act as 2 separate captive balls in 2 separate locks by the up post keeping them separate. Another thing I was thinking about, but is going to make Eric kill me, is that we could allow someone to put a 3rd ball in the lock by hitting one of the locked balls and letting it double stack on the other side with the other ball. Then open up the empty side and ready it for lock 3. This is just an idea at the moment, and not sure if we will use it. This also opens up other cool ways of separating the balls again into a 2 locked scenario.
There are a bunch of possibilities with this thing and we are working hard on making it as fun as possible. Right now, it is very fun to play and has been very reliable. Eric knows his shit. This is just one of the super exciting mechanical aspects of this layout that I love. Well, I hope that was enough for you guys to digest for a while.

Quoted from Whysnow:

Like a horseshoe triple ball lock mech that can juggle balls around, open up, deflect balls, has two controlled drop targets, and presumably an AFM type space ship that shakes along with all this?
As for stranger things, I gotta be honest. That toy pretty much blows. The big wide panel opens to be a ramp to blast balls all over the place, the toy is very tough to get a ball in it, and currently it does nothing. No interaction, no shaking, just a hole.
As far as toys go, it is pretty lame.

It’s a bash toy and a hole and moves on the premium / LE. It’s a great toy.

I don’t think stranger things is a goose egg at all. I think it looks great and excited to get one. Just like I’m excited to get rick and morty. If it’s not for you that’s cool but pinball sales aren’t make or break based upon your opinion alone. :p

Quoted from drfrightner:

I have to say it... Spooky vs Stern. New game vs new game. Who wins Rick and Morty or Stranger Things.
First off we all have to admit Stranger Things is a much bigger license so Stern wins there. But if you're a fan of Stranger Things did Stern deliver the game you were hoping for? Did Spooky? After playing Stranger Things and just based on the videos for Rick and Morty... I think Spooky SLAYED the dragon.
I think if you're a fan of Rick and Morty you're ecstatic about the pinball game. Spooky knocked a home run and made the Rick and Morty fans overjoyed. If you're a fan of Stranger Things, you're now probably wishing Spooky had the license because Stern laid an egg. Stern likes to do this a lot... rain on someone's parade by releasing new code when another manufacturer releases their new game, or in this case a new game over the top of another new game.
They usually win... but Spooky did such a great job Stern loses big league. Congrats to Spooky you went head to head and won you're now a giant killer.

Trust Chris (Kingpin Games) 100% on this. He’s a straight shooter. Him and Zach (flip n out) are as honest as they come!

Quoted from KingPinGames:

I want to set this straight. The margins for the game are the same regardless if it's a standard, blood sucker, no options, or everything including butter cabinet. There is NO bigger kickback on one game over another.
Okay, moving on. I have never watched the show, but I did have a chance to shoot the game. I enjoyed it and found its shots satisfying when hit. I am sure it would have meant more had I known the context for the modes and callouts, but I still enjoyed the game for the layout and replayability.[quoted image]

Eric I just had to say how AMAZING this feature is. It’s awesome how far you’re pushing the features!

Quoted from epthegeek:

Some detail on the 'family mode' filtering.
Some of the callouts are just something you wouldn't want to say in front of children; like the masturbation joke Scott's mentioned in some interviews. It's not REALLY cursing, it's just not family friendly really. In those cases, the filter replaces that line with an alternate.
For lines that just have cursing in them, most of the time the 'clean' version is just 'bleeped' like it does on TV.
In a very small number of cases, the cursing is clearly separated from the other words and it just gets removed for the clean one.
And this bit I posted before:
There's a quick toggle on the front page of the service menu (Enter service menu and hold the launch button and it will swap between your current setting and "off")
AND
There's also a time based option you can turn on and then set a START and END time. In between START and END, the swearing is forced to OFF, outside of that, it goes to whatever your current setting is for the filter.
This is the front page of the service mode - shows the Current active setting and details:

Was not a trolling question either. Was just asking if anyone was concerned because of the last release having many issues. Simple question to answer, it's either yes, no or maybe. No need to attack someone for asking a question.

You weren't REALLY asking a question. If you were you wouldn't have added all of this:

""Sure, this is your dream theme, but so was Alice Cooper for those buyers. Now they’re stuck with a game that constantly resets due to memory leaks and many issues with the mechs.

I was looking at the images of the playfield and was wondering if it is the final release. They made some interesting choices:
1. The flying alien prominently displayed above the flippers appears to be similar to the flying alien from the opening credits, but 7 eyes instead of 8 and the colors are all different.
2. There are 2 characters seen briefly in Season 4 episode 1 . Larvae Mr. Goldenfarb and his grubs found on the dinning room table in the Wasp Universe. These were chosen for the right ramp.
The Kirkland Meeseeks from Season 4 Episode 1 is seen on the plastic to the right of the upper flipper.
3. The snake from Season 4 Episode 4 made the backglass.
These seem fairly minor, random characters prominently placed. It will be interesting to see how so many crazy characters and universes will be incorporated in this game.[quoted image][quoted image][quoted image][quoted image]

I too wish I'd known this was an option. There are others that called as well and got very early numbers as a result.

I have to laugh a little bit, I recall Kaneda making fun of people who set their alarms to get up early to get on their computers and order their rick and morty in hopes of getting an early number, when he himself did the same thing just through phone call instead of website, and since he got an early number of course he's happy and has no complaint.

By the way Spooky - please please PLEASE take note of the current huge blunder of a pin reveal stern just did. Please make sure that the first gameplay reveal shown is done by spooky (or through someone like Zach at Flip N Out!!) - professional and done well via twitch livestream with the right setup etc. You only get one chance to make a first impression and you don't want it to be with a crappy cell phone video or something else that sells the game short of what it truly is!

#7395 1 year ago
Quoted from chooch:

I have no problems with him getting a low number and I am a fan of his show. I found it funny as well that he would be one of the first ones to get it when he stated on facebook the reason he went in on Rick and Morty over other titles was because of the opportunity to flip and sell it for more money when he decides to part with it unlike recent Stern LE's which have dropped in price (i.e Munsters). Which is fine and everyone flips games for profit I just find it ironic because there are people who are dying for this theme and hate that they have to wait months and he will have sold his by then and already moved on to TMNT or GNR. It makes sense now why he never sold his spot because that would have been a dick move to Charlie after he got a low number.

I'm a fan of his podcast too, doesn't mean I agree with everything he does or says though haha.

Quoted from jeffspinballpalace:

It was a general question. I heard Kingpin say Spooky benefits from getting games to Operators first so they could use feedback and actually make adjustments to the game. I thought that’s weird, shouldn’t the kinks be worked out first?

The reality is, when you have a product like this that starts getting hundreds and hundres of plays out in public, they WILL find new things (this is referring to coding bugs, but can sometimes be physical things that have to be addressed via service bulletin and parts etc). So what spooky is doing is a good thing.

Quoted from screaminr:

If they don't get the first gameplay video done right it could really hurt sales But seriously a well done video does make a big difference . The video Zach did on the Wonka reveal was excellent .Haha obviously in this case wouldn't hurt sales. But it could create a huge headache for spooky. You have people who want to cancel so now they are putting all their spots up for sale, and that leads to hassle down the road when spooky has to deliver the game elsewhere etc. Or people contacting spooky complaining about X Y Z. I'm sure there are other examples too.

#7672 1 year ago
Quoted from 6S3NC3:

I really think Spooky should get on this Game play video before the first person takes delivery. I would hate to see some guy showing game play for the first time and not do the game justice and bricking shots all over. Doesnt have to be this over the top 2h live stream. Just some footage of a mode or 2 and some shots being made with simple rule run through would suite me just fine!

A stream with Zach/SDTM would be ideal.

Quoted from JustEverett:

Zach is Sterns hypeman...I'd much rather see Bowen and Danesi playing it in the first stream.

No one's saying Bowen or Danesi shouldn't be playing on the first stream. My point is that Zach is good at putting on a good looking and professional stream even when he's not playing on it. Also the last thing I'd call Zach is a stern hypeman. I've literally called him to buy a stern machine and he's flat out talked me out of it because it wasn't a good pin for me, at the cost of losing a sale for him.

So often the companies that allow a pin to be made using their IP are so difficult and can't be bothered, but here is AS truly doing something amazing for their fans. You've made a huge fan of me and I'm going to go see what other Adult Swim shows there are that I should be watching!

I lay mine down in box when I pickup from depot. The side that says “truck from this side” is the bottom of the cabinet and is the side you should lay the box on when laying it down.

Quoted from screaminr:

Not sure if Jack danger is the best person to go with now , he's coping a lot of hate and backlash and people unsubscribing to him after his recent comments . Everything has been so positive about this machine I would hate to see anything overshadow it's reveal and give people an excuse to say negative things .

I agree. Jack Danger no thanks, I’ll pass. Used to be a big fan but not after his most recent behavior.

Quoted from o-din:

They got their dream theme, didn't they? So what are they complaining about.

I have an LE, the pin is a lot of fun. Trolling is not fun so that's probably the only real complaint. It's a club thread, following the rules isn't hard. :p

Quoted from jahbarron:

to be fair, you don’t have to pay extra for the neatest part on this game. The is only one version of fun in terms of gameplay.

totally agree, which is why I can't wait until #284 is in the house - can't get here soon enough!

#9682 11 months ago

Can not wait for this game. #284 can’t get here fast enough. My wife and I watched the YouTube video and loved every bit and laughed a lot.

Thanks for ruining the circle jerk @vidgameseller. Pinside was about to climax before you had to bring negativity into it.

Don’t you mean circle squanching?

#9759 11 months ago
Quoted from TherealDroopy:

Does anyone know if the volume of the callouts can be adjusted independently from the background music? Has Spooky ever done this in the past? I really like the music but I would like to hear the callouts clearly (I'm going to need all the help I can get)I would assume so, I know you can on JJP and stern. I’m guessing it’s a standard adjustable setting.

These are not the droids we are looking for

This is pretty cringe. I hope they get to the pinball soon.

Prepping room for the game. Even Gizmo (dog) is excited.[quoted image]

Nice! I’m still waiting to get mine. When did you order yours? How long did it take?

#10403 11 months ago

Anyone else having a delay on hearing about their order from C137 designs for custom image from R&M? When I ordered, it said 7-10 days, but I'm going on day 12.

#10511 11 months ago

So what do you guys think of this for a mod. Velcro it to anywhere inside the pin I suppose. (rough draft - final version pics soon which will be white instead of gray, and hopefully better resolution printed label)

#10530 11 months ago
Quoted from MEuRaH:

This is pretty cool. How did you make it and what is it made of?
And how much are you charging to make mine?

It's 3d printed, draft so the resolution/layer is wide. I was planning to sell them if people wanted yea. Like $25 each shipped probably.

Quoted from garretswinning:

My sauce looks way different[quoted image]

I imagine if you opened that, you wouldn't be able to wash that smell off of you for weeks.

#10532 11 months ago
Quoted from jonesjb:

Interesting meta dilemma. Which is the ‘right’ szechuan sauce mod? The Mulan one referenced on the actual tv show, or the Rick and Morty promotion sauce McDonald’s bought out in response to the TV show?

I think we should debate this topic for at least the next 7 pages.

#10540 11 months ago
Quoted from Zablon:

Neither fit the color scheme of the pin. Also, unless there is some reference to it in the game, it really doesn't need to be there.
Change my mind.

Blasphemous.

#10659 11 months ago
Quoted from MEuRaH:

Spooky gives away FREE TOPPERS as an accessory.
Stern charges $279 for special lights you need to fully enjoy the game.
Oh man... I've never purchased a NIB Stern and I'm not sure I ever will.

Yea I’m thinking of selling my STHLE. Just annoyed at the whole thing. But I need to sleep on it. Quick emotional decisions are not a good thing.

#10718 11 months ago

I'd probably pay $500 to swap with someone and move up from my #284 spot to something in the 100s.

#10722 11 months ago
Quoted from FYMF:

Considering a regular edition spot around #650 went for $3400 ( deposit cost $1,000,) I think 500 would be beyond generous for what you could realistically get.
I imagine you would gauge it based on how far back you traded.
Trade for spot 200 maybe 500-750
Trade for spot 500 maybe 750-1000
Trade for over spot 500 maybe 1000-1500.
I know it sounds crazy but just based off what the 600 plus spot sold for...

Well - that's not the same thing. That's for buying a spot outright. Trading one spot for another is different in the sense that you're not giving up your spot altogether, you're just swapping for a later spot and making some $$ on it.

#10805 11 months ago
Quoted from Whysnow:

I have been asked a bunch so posting here for all that are interested.
R&M #2 will be available for all to play immediately following the world premier stream on Saturday.
Location is IO Arcade Bar in Madison (720 Williamson St).
12 pins plus 30+ regional and local beers plus 30+ classic arcades.
Stream will likely be around 2 hours (I think that is normal for a game release?).
Jack and Spooky have some guests coming it sounds like and should be a fun stream.
I am hoping Scott and Eric can make it. Team Spooky are obviously pretty busy currently so unsure what may unfold.
Man I am pumped to play this game!

Super excited for you guys! Congrats and really happy to see a local spot get this.

Can I just say Scott is KILLING IT with this music. They just said that all of the modes are music he wrote. It goes so well with the theme and games.

#11210 11 months ago
Quoted from razorsedge:

I bet some of the Jerrys crying recently would be the guys preaching "I'll just get one on the used market later, for new price or less!" ... and now, they're waking up to realise they will likely need to be forking out premium dollars to snag one...
Hilarious! lol

Would not surprise me if this pin appreciates in value.

#11217 11 months ago
Quoted from Zablon:

Really surprises me that no one ever made a Harry Potter themed pin.

Too much sand in JK Rowling’s vagina for that to happen. She thinks they are too close to gambling...

#11237 11 months ago
Quoted from razorsedge:

No way I would have been in on RaM if it was a semi complete half baked turd thrown out there by stern.
Stern making this theme would have ensured you could get a used RaM for half new price a year or two down the track.
Sterns rep for quality sank long ago.

Yea I bought my last NIB stern for the foreseeable future in stranger things. I’m tired of their crap. I’ll buy used only from now on, and instead give my money to spooky, JJP, CGC.

#11269 11 months ago
Quoted from Cyrus:

So the game at Lyman's (in D.C.) is definitely up and running. I went there for lunch today and played four games. Got killed in three of them and had a decent game four with multi-ball. I don't know the fricking rules to save my life but the multi-ball was fun and the call outs are great (thought those with little ones or the easily offended about will want to run family friendly mode). Four games does not a review make but just a couple of observations:
1. The game played like a Scott Denesi. Very fast and scoops fire the ball out reminiscent of TNA. The pop bumper in place of a sling on the left side is pretty novel. This is not a slow paced game. Had quite a few SDTM's when I didn't get enough juice to power it up the left ramp. I tilted three times trying to slap save or nudge.
2. I didn't miss not having any bash toys. Like ACNC, I was too busy trying to keep the ball in play to notice.
3. The guy before me had a ball drain not register. Only way to get the game going again was a power re-cycle. This did not happen to me but it did happen again to the guy who played after my final game. I'm thinking probably a roll over switch adjustment. Lyman's is a league location so I'm sure they will sort it out.
4. The chili hotdogs were good. The beer was cold. Another great afternoon at Lyman's.

The plumbus does not like to be jostled.

#11280 11 months ago
Quoted from toyotaboy:

I can see it now.. empty playfield, ramp on each side, ship on a spring with no mech to move it, balls getting stuck on gates, 0.01 beta code at release.. $500 topper. It sounds fantastic!

Don't forget a UV light kit that is integral to the theme of the game and differentiates key modes that will cost $300 later.

#11326 11 months ago

Futurama pin you say?

#11343 11 months ago
Quoted from Slapfighter:

I have a bad feeling that Stern will do a Futurama pin somewhere in the future.
They see the big success and hype about Rick and Morty and wish they had done it.
The imperium strikes back. I think it happens.
Not funny i know.

If stern does it, no thanks. Blah

I thought these early games were intentionally given to ops and sent to location first so that they could be better tested to get feedback to work out issues...

Quoted from knockerlover:

Only had the game on location a few days, I have a list of “minor” things that are probably tweaks and setup things that could be improved. A few of them, are things that I shouldn’t have to mess with if the game is setup per spookys instructions included, but such is life.. flynnibus covered a few of them above.
The thing many of you probably don’t appreciate, is that many people that pay to play pinball aren’t nearly as familiar with it as we are. Not even close, especially with this title as it draws people in that may have never played before, but love the show and want to try.
A ball that appears stuck, they are afraid to do anything other than just push the flipper buttons. The bar staff doesn’t always know what to do other than turn the game off and call us. We educate them as best we can, but there is like 50% attrition in staff there.
Having a game like this that could fetch 10-15k on the secondary, being turned off is a huge huge huge problem for us operators.
I’ve personally experienced the ball get stuck on the edge of the playfield coming out of the trough into the shooter lane, and no matter what, couldn’t free it without opening the coin door and manually pushing the eject coil. Lowering the coil power helped, but who knows if that’s still happening. Every day we check on the game, someone has turned it off for something.
The BIGGEST thing that concerns me at the moment, was the aggressive and continuous ball search I experienced. One ball stuck in the u-turn lock, and the game running all coils constantly (no breaks) just continuous cycling of coils until I turned the game off. Hard to relax leaving the game on location alone, I worry some of these uninitiated would just walk away from a game in that state while it melts itself.
With 50+ other pieces at 6 locations, a new install going on right now, my family and my “normal” job.. I don’t have the time to sit around and play test all the time, get USB logs and email spooky with every little detail, for the most part i just need this shit to work.

Kaneda laying the groundwork to flip his game NIB? Haven’t heard the podcast but sounds like it.

Then you didn’t listen to the podcast. :p

Quoted from N80G80:

My guess is that number is lower, last game I saw announced publicly was like 67 maybe....and all beginning # cabs are supposed to be the butter cabs, which I think went to #35 last I heard....I’ll bet there aren’t more than 40 out there.

When I filled out my order sheet for #81, I asked if Butter Cab would delay my order, and they told me no as they received a big shipment of butter cabs, and there were only a handful of people who had actually ordered it and were waiting on them.

#11966 8 months ago
Quoted from TheGunnett:

#76, When ordering I was told that the first allotment of butter cabs were spoken for and going butter would delay a few weeks.
I wanted my game ASAP so I elected not to go butter......,

Makes sense as you would have ordered when they were waiting on their next shipment of butter cabs.

#11968 8 months ago
Quoted from jonesjb:

I thought the butter cabinets were being done in-house, no?

I'm not sure, maybe they were waiting for the materials to do the butter cabinets? I'm just repeating what I was told. I called KT to ask if choosing butter cabinet would delay my pin as that was what people were saying on the forums, and she said no they just received a shipment and there were only a couple people ahead of me that had chosen them and had been delayed - but choosing butter cabinet would not delay mine since they had it on hand.

I wouldn't read much more into it than that I suppose.
