Sick!!!! Cant wait , anything that adds to my games I'm all for!
Quoted from fooflighter:
I would love if they could incorporate some sort off glass off sensor system and make the real/verified achievements available to the home user as well...Location play isn't really my thing...then you could incorporate daily and weekly challenges like video games do which would build your user profile in various ways
Funny I thought of that as well. Like the game will " know " when the glass is off. Would be a cool thing if they could pull that off.
Quoted from fooflighter:
Probably would require some special glass with embedded sensors that would only work with specific IR or prox sensors...yeah not sure how they would/could pull it off...which is why they probably limited this "verified" idea to location play
Yeah, its pretty much wishful thinking but would be cool nonetheless.
Quoted from anathematize:
Somebody would 100% figure out how to 'hack' that in a very short timeframe. I don't think Stern is going to invest any sort of R&D money into an anti-glass-off detection system.
I do think that it would be nice if there was some sort of solution though. It's a bit of a bummer that home users won't be able to get the same kind of achievement 'prestige' as location players.
Oh no doubt!!! would definitely happen. I'm just really looking forward to see what the home owners get. I love the idea of working towards achievements and whatever else they have in store. I don't see how them giving us more longevity to our games is a bad thing. It doesn't seem like its "required" so no problem for me either way.
So lets say you have a Deadpool Premium purchased for this Decembers build. Will those be built with the new QR reader and wifi connection?
Quoted from bigehrl:
after having spent some time really digesting what's going on here, and as someone who's both a player and an operator, I truly feel this, for me, is the biggest pinball development since solid state electronics. i know, i know, many of you disagree and can point out several other developments that were big. But the possibilities with this seem limitless. Between the gameplay dynamic and layers of challenges it can add to the game, the interactivity between other players, and the information it can retain and inform you with, this is going to revolutionize location pinball. I'm personally looking forward to participating in this as much as possible at Jackbar, and at my other route locations.
I’m on Long Island , hope to make it to your place one day.
Quoted from flynnibus:
and Ops MUST pay golden tee for EVERY credit on the commercial games. They skim off the top for all games. It's not pleasant plus the annual $800 or so to keep with each year's trivial release
I doubt Stern has the stones to try to force that kind of model yet... or build a real operator payment model.
I gave up and stopped at the 2017 upgrade in my house. Would rather save the money towards a new pinball from now on.
So me getting dizzy trying to scroll through all the posts. What where the first 7 titles doing this again?
