Quoted from Bigbad:

Let’s get some new aerosmith code already

I think that about sums it up

#4152 10 months ago

How does one adjust the shooter rod so it's better centered on the ball?

I noticed that on a soft plunge as the ball goes up the shooter lane it glances off the inside rail which sends it glancing off the outside wall so when it reaches the end where the ramp is, it collides with the inside wall of the lane and usually just rattles around. That makes it really difficult and frustrating to hit the skill shot (or either lane switch).

I played another AS on location and a soft plunge was super smooth.

I had to video mine in super slo-mo to see what was happening. If I set the ball 2 inches in front of the rod and push it with my finger, it goes straight up the lane so I am thinking I need to adjustment the rod.

Help! Thanks.

The shooter rod housing can be moved a little, then tightened back up. Loosen all three screws from the inside, adjust, then re-tighten.

Is there a headphone jack in this pinball? I didn't see one where there is one in GB?

Also, where do you run the wires out of the pinball to the subwoofer?

No headphone jack by default. As for a sub, wires go out of the back of the can where the screen covers are. Screen be lifted without removing or cutting screen. Slide wire through and hook up to sub. Then crank it up!

We continue to add resources to our software department to address updates, enhancements, bug fixes and various polish to our catalog of previous titles including Ghostbusters, Aerosmith and KISS. We expect for these code updates to start releasing by mid-Summer...

Just got a pro and wow, it's a great game and its a beautiful piece of art.
Only gripes have already been addressed in this thread: long delay when the ball smacks Jacky in the face when the toybox is closed, and the fact that the ball goes straight down the middle 75% of the time after bouncing off him. I think that whole deal with the ball launching at the closed toybox should be removed, personally. It doesn't really do anything for the game.
And the smart button, Ive had the game a week and played probably 60 games, only seen one smart missile and not sure how I earned it.
These minor gripes aside, I love the way the game plays and looking forward to the code update. Nice work Stern.

Agreed, i have a Pro as well and this game kicks ass and is a ton of fun. It needs some minor code updates but its still great even where its at right now. Cant wait to get the code polished up though for sure. I also agree with you on Jackie getting hit in the face. That sucks to lose a ball because of that. I hope they take that out of the game also.

#4163 9 months ago

I agree with the above. A short ball save after the face whacking would be nice. I'm also not a fan of using up a VIP pass during multiball when the ball save is active.

In 14 days it will be a year since the code has been updated, but saying that, part of the reason I bought Aerosmith was that the code was pretty solid on release. Fingers crossed Steven's got those big lips working some call-out magic for the next code update.

You got me wondering now. I thought that as long as your ball save was on that it didnt use up your VIP Pass? Im going to have to keep an eye on it and see. That’s definitely not right if it does though.

It doesn't get used in single ball play, just the multiball I've noticed.

You are correct Bruce_pickle it also does it on game of thrones when Lord of light is lit.

I've never had a problem with Jackie getting hit in the face...no ball lossage. I doubt they will take it out by default...might be worth a software setting to disable.

Ive lost several balls after they hit Jackie in the face and a few times i had really good games going. That is when it really pisses me off.

Earning the TITA super jackpot is about as fun as pinball gets for me. That will never ever get old.

I’m not that good maybe someday.

Anyone know the rules for earning lit extra balls? Seems like one pops up after a few modes started. But I think I’ve earned 3 in one game... but not sure how.

#4171 9 months ago

I know of 2 ways to light EB:

1. Hit 4 different “dead shots” (not lit for anything)
2. Play 4 different modes

Both are adjustable in settings.

I only get the TITA SJP about every 200 games, which is part of the fun.

1. Once you start song #3 the EN will light.

2. Mystery Jacky shots. Once you hit a certain number it will light the EB.

a pinsider requested a Marshall Logo for the speaker panel in various materials - here is the link. These can be double sided taped to the grill to give that true 3d look - lots of materials to pick from and I have no control over the cost as determined by Shapeways manufacturing process and materials. I am waiting some speaker panel dimensions to complete the look.

LED and disable only the offender.

diagnostic test to retest node board and report with coils/LEDs are drawing
too much current. Excessive current draw could be the result of a shorted

I had my best game by far yesterday. I finished TITA, I think I've only done this a few times. I was able to get every mode solid except elevator. I think Last Child took 3 tries. I could not get elevator started for a 3rd time. I had this all done by ball 2. It was a LONG game. There is basically nothing to shoot for after the modes are done other than bricking the left orbit. It would be cool if they had something in the code that made the final mode easier to get with a scoop shot or something. Or, even better, make elevator a little more attainable. I've never finished it. I ended up with over 600 million but was bored to death at the end because no modes were available and I was failing miserably at elevator shots. I need to work on that left orbit.

Impressive! I have a hard enough time finishing Sweet Emotion. Usually need to get that going right before a Multiball.

PS. I swear Sweet Emotion just game on the radio... weird.
