Danger’s last video of ACNC really shows how far this has come. Can’t wait to have it in my collection.

I think it appears the collecting of weapons is now gone. Is that right?

It appears they have gone a different direction. Welcome to knowing early code and ideas. I like where they are going. There are so many possibilities with a pinball. In the future, they may be more tight lipped to avoid “disappointment”...or expectations.

Scooby Doo LEGO!! My wife makes a ton of LEGO. Looks real cool with leds!!!

The collecting of items is not part of the game, for now.

That Scooby-Doo set is expensive. I just picked one up on Ebay for $145...

It will look damn cool on top of ACNC though...

The sell LEGO glue!! Its not going anywhere. Use two LEGO plates to put the topper on with the glue. Then earthquake putty to attach to top of machine. Its amazing and it can be removed with water when you wash the legos if you ever take it apart. Then use led strips from Amazon. Total investment under $200. Cool topper

I hope they bring in the weapons in future updates...I'm guessing they would work similar to the weapons in Monster Bash? It would be so awesome if the weapons were based on references to additional Alice Cooper songs, and we could hear those songs when the weapons are used (Poison, anyone?).

I really wish that song was in the game, one of my favorites

#4863 10 months ago

I'm thinking collecting weapons from the rooms gives incentive to take the long way instead of the secret passage by giving a higher value if you b as title and/or defeat the monster. Just a thought.

Quoted from bigd1979:

No , he meant monster bash . You collect items and they help you with the monsters they are associated with for example garlic cloves help with Dracula . If you have collected an item you can press the launch button when in a monster mode and it counts as a shot .

Hey Charlie, Bowen and Fawzma!

Loved the topper for Rob Zombie. Any chance we get an official topper for Alice? Haven’t heard any announcements regarding a topper.

Thanks!

#4868 10 months ago

I promised myself I would be patient when I got my spot, but now that I know Spooky is switching to full ACNC production, I am starting to watch for people getting their emails. Hope to see some soon. So we know we are really moving forward!

#4870 10 months ago

Has anyone seen/developed any mods for ACNC yet? I know it's early but usually a few mods start making their way into the world.

Quoted from DrMark12PA:

Even if no one has made any, I want to know what people think can be modded to be better. I can't really think of anything looking at the playfield, it's pretty darn nice already. But I'm sure people will think of plenty

#4872 10 months ago

Watching the DeadFlip stream of ACNC and this is a pin I was looking forward too. I love the theme and it's a beautiful looking pinball machine. I know it's early yet and code isn't complete......anyone else got feedback or input from the Dead Flip steam? I'd love to hear what others think.....definitely has some cool features and it's a fast playing pinball machine. Game Animations are pretty damn cool but the game feels like a drain monster just as you get a mode started. Only wish that Alice's music was playing all throughout the game instead of only during certain modes.

Can't wait to play one.

#4874 10 months ago

chicoman, I played ACNC in late Nov at Pincincinatti. The game is pretty forgiving once you get used to it. You need to have some basic nudge skills and be able to control the ball. I'm an average player at best and I put up 69 million + on it (including chopping off Alice's head). I enjoyed it so much, I put a deposit on it. My 13 year old son also had a blast and defeated a few monsters. The shots may be a little tighter than a modern Stern, but boy they feel great when you hit them. The combo sound and light effects are great. And finding and battling monsters is a thrill. Plus there are two multiballs (Frank and Crypt) that are available (and able to be stolen) throughout the game. Try to play one with current code, it's a blast. The newest code is even better and more polished!

#4875 10 months ago

I really like these customs ones you have done, but I wish they were done on the pingulps that slide-off easily. Maybe that mug-slot is getting in the way? I don't like that feature at all.

Yeah I haven’t figured out a good way to paint those , the close out piece for the mug handle slot and the way the pingulp slides onto the mounting bracket are the issue .

In case anyone is looking to jump up #35 is available!

I tried the only answer I got was that we are definitely getting our games within the 18 months timeframe.. I am waiting both on ACNC and MBrLE and I’m losing my god damn mind!

You both have a beautiful pair of pins coming!

For me, I enjoy being a apart of the process and seeing the progress, even if it's a slow process. I continually look forward to seeing pictures and seeing others receive their pins and sharing their experience.

This has been disappointing and I dare say anything as I risk having some pinsiders lose their mind.

#4882 10 months ago

I shot a video myself on my phone of me defeating the vampire . I cradled the ball on the upper playfield and grabbed my phone to record it so the video is not good but it does show the cool animation for the defeat of the vampire .

TNA production should stop soon so that our games can roll out.

True. Actually it was supposed to have happened already. Honestly i think we should refrain from the pics and things again Magicchiz, but this is only my opinion. Do what ya want! Fingers crossed. Reason being when the community has an update, we will have this bumped anyway. Or am i simply an asshole?

Yes, I too was under the impression that the switch was made already. I guess not.

#4888 10 months ago

I think the switch has been made, but it takes time...shipping, setup, play, pics, video...and remember, only a very few will do the reveal.

#4889 10 months ago

I have been considering getting this game but the videos of game play don't really excite me atm. I know this has been covered but it looks like an absolute brick fest. Can anyone who has played the pin elaborate on how it feels to shoot? All videos I have watched seem to show the ball only making a ramp or target etc probably 30% of the time with the rest of the shots just bricking and bouncing around back to the flippers.

#4890 10 months ago

adamsebas been close to putting down a deposit myself a couple of times but cant commit as cant a proper time frame, enquired around a year ago & told have to be quick as they expected to ship them in 6 weeks but as I couldnt put the money together in that short of time I didnt bother but if they told me then maybe 12 months I would have probably gone ahead. Looked into it again a few weeks back but the aussie dollar copped a flogging & dropped about 4 cents putting the price up about $250. Its a great looking machine but that $6,500 price tag soon blows out when you do exchange rate, tax, & shipping. Think by the time it lands here it would cost about $11,000 as long as the exchange rate stays as is, could go up could go down bit of a gamble

My buddy just got a Deadpool LE. We played for like 2 hours. During that time frame there were many bricked shots., non complete lock shots, etc. Here is my 2 cents, which I guess is better than another Alice picture from what I can tell from others posts.
Pinball is a physical game. The ball is Not going to go where you want it to go everytime. In order to have ramps and upper playfields. There has to be something holding them up. They don't just float there. Even the best pinballs have posts with bumpers on them. Or Blue foam of death. People need to get over this never going to not brick a pinball mindframe. Not every shot is a easy shot. DO YOU NOT WANT A CHALLENGE? Do you want the game. To just hand you a grand champion score? Come On, you like the theam, or you don't. You like the art or you don't. People are. Complaining that Munsters is going to be too easy. If something doesn't challenge you. Guess how long you will have it in your collection. Last time I played a older game, the object was to bounce off posts, bumpers, etc
So each to there own. But everybody who complains about bricking need to practice a little bit. Learn the shots.

Go to YouTube and watch Buffalo Pinball's AC video. That is all you need to form an opinion.

Go watch the Dead Flip stream from last Saturday at Scott Danesi’s house. It’s running a more recent code.

Sorry that you get downvotes this is a crowd that does not like to hear anything other than positive comments in regards to ACNC.

I know exactly what you are seeing in the vids you would have to be blind or ignorant not to.

ACNC has come along way since it was revealed at Texas pinball festival and Allentown . I for one am very excited to play the pin this year at Texas pinball festival and see how far it has progressed.

There are a lot of shots that hit posts.

Feel free to Voice your honest opinion.

It Does not mean you dislike the game or will not buy it .

3.2.1.Start the down votes against my post-gentleman. And begin! LOL.

Or maybe it is because people get tired of hearing the same thing over and over again. Yes the shots are different on this game, it isn't a Stern fan layout so it is going to feel a lot different. It takes time to get used to. A post about bricked shots comes up about every 3 pages, I know I am tired of hearing about it.

I played it and enjoyed it. It certainly takes some time to start hitting the shots, and even then they aren't easy.

People forming opinions about games based on streams bug me. Yes I know this is a difficult one to find, but if you want to know how it feels you have to go out and play it. That is true for any pinball machine. Streams are great, they have a ton of good information, but at the end of the day that is someone else's opinion on a game. That is my 2 cents.

Agreed, playing a pin is the only way to know if “You” like it.

“You” are the only one that needs to like any pinball machine.

No one is going to buy it for you so be sure “You” like it!

At the same time we all need to stay open minded to other views and opinions. Whether we see them as positive or negative or even repetitive in a positive and negative opinion .

Like the old saying says: “what you eat don’t make me shit.”

#4900 10 months ago

I was able to play more Alice Cooper at banning. Looking forward to more time spent playing it anywhere...

Probably at ayci Gogi this Thursday.

I like the company spooky a lot. I met the owners at golden state pinball in ca last year.

And then later a friend of mine and me watched the spooky story video.

I like them. I really like them. Good people. We need more spooky pinballs.
