    Quoted from zombieyeti:

    There's way more than what's being discussed or shown - be patient

    #390 61 days ago

    My only real concern is how it'll look on my game. The images sure do look ugly. And it appears to take up a ton of space. Zombie Yeti mentioned having art around the stuff. But I'm guessing that's for new games going forward. I don't really want to lose what I've got on my TMNT. Wonder if I can put it on my coin door.

    I love the features that it could add however. Achievements are always kind of fun because it's your own personal progression. Sure you can cheat to get them. But what's the fun in that? Sure you can cheat to get achievements in other video games. But you know you never accomplished them.

    I'm going to lose my mind trying to get the TMNT achievements. I love the game. But I am absolutely terrible at it.

    I'm also curious if they'll put restrictions on achievements. Like for you to get them you need to have the game on default settings. No extra balls and longer ball saves.

    I think it would be great if there was some way to pay for your games using the app and scanning your profile in. You'd obviously have to verify the purchase on your phone after scanning into the game.

    And say you win a game with a post game match or high score. It puts that credit into your account. Would be really nice since sometimes my best games are when I'm running late or need to get back to the table because the food is arriving.

    Quoted from shaub:

    This would be cool but a feature like this would have to be locked to a specific operator so you can't get free games on one operator's machine and then spend it on another operator's machine.

    Yeah that should go without being said.

    This could also lead to other offers at establishments. Where you get a free game of pinball with your lunch pizza meal or something. Credit goes directly into your account.

    Quoted from sataneatscheese:

    I can see these running foul of local gambling ordinances real quick.

    Places already do something similar. I've seen get free pizza for a year if you can grand champion a game. You can already earn a free game on most pinball games.

    Can't wait for a mod for the QR scanner to be on the coin door or somewhere else.

    And judging by the images from Godzilla, it looks like games going forward the best apron art packages will be on the Premium/LE. While the Pro gets nothing.

    Quoted from jfh:

    Well, guess Stern doesn’t want me. It says the email address I’ve used for over twenty years has an invalid domain name and will not let me join Insider.
    Obviously there are still some bugs in the system.

    Yeah getting the same error.

    Quoted from thechakapakuni:

    Well looks like Scorbit just rolled out Achievements. IC a day late & a dollar short

    I guess. But I can see people who already have Scorbit on some games and have JJ games wanting to keep all their achievements in one place.

    Quoted from Jman44:

    Are the insider connected machines not going to be able to have their code modded(IE:Timlah79 JP code)?

    Not sure why nobody from the podcasts or other interviews haven't asked that exact question. Seems like a pretty big one to me.

    Quoted from jedi42:

    So most of the older pros will need a new apron, significantly increasing the price of a retro kit. Would it be possible for someone to design a 3d box to house it outside of the machine, and if someone was to do this, could you move it from machine to machine? Maybe wiring would be too much of an issue?

    I hope there is some sort of mod that we can install on the older machines. I'd love to be able to scan my phone at the coin door or something.
