Quoted from KingBW:

No mention of fixing the ACDC oi Mania bugs ... fixing existing bugs should be a high priority.

Haven'y yet updated as waiting for this to be fixed!

Was hoping for a mini-wizard mode as well

#1102 6 months ago
Quoted from Sinestro:

Actually, AC/DC was the first pin with RGB lighting.

Actually, New Canasta was, which was a reason we didn't bother to try and patent it (unlike Stern).

I don’t get it.

Patenting RGB LEDs (in a pinball machine).

Hahahahaha. Hilarious.

The not so hilarious part is they could have succeeded, given the insanely broken US patent system.

Patience on this one. It's certainly not forgotten.

I’ve had my ACDC a few weeks now. I haven’t made it to the broken Oiee mania yet. Updating isn’t for Oi mania, but rather all the other awards associated with the horns as well as all the rules and balance changes. Worth the update IMO.

#1108 6 months ago

Just for perspective, the last Kiss update was August 2, 2017 - 14 months ago.

Last Ghostbusters update was January 17, 2017 - coming up on 2 years ago.

Just ridiculous for both games, especially Ghostbusters considering it's still in production and has been a very popular title.

I'm just gonna blurt it out. I think Gomez prioritizes all code updates and BM66 is his baby. I've seen 17 BM66 code updates since the last GB code update. In Stern of the Union addresses, under code updates, BM66 is always at the top of the list, followed by other games, with GB at the bottom. The whole thing looks more like first in, last out instead of first in, first out!

But it was like the most unfinished piece of hot garbage in years right?

I don’t think this is so much of Gomez’s doing as TF and AV got shit code support. BM66 is all about ‘In Lyman we trust”.

#1114 6 months ago

Email bug.report@sternpinball.com and tell them to get their asses in gear on the GB update.

Quoted from Eskaybee:

I dunno, B66 seems to be a special case for some reason, whether it is Gomez or Lyman. No game has had two years of dedicated effort like B66 has. Lyman has reportedly done work on his own personal time to polish older games up, but Stern seems to be letting him stay focused on B66 full time. Other devs seem to get moved onto new machines much more quickly.

I just hope GB is more an Aerosmith update and less a Star Trek update.

Make great code with updates.

Sell more pins. Pretty simple

Maybe Stern GB license has expired

#1118 6 months ago

As for BM66 it started with next to nothing BUT

You always knew Lyman would deliver a masterpiece again. And he has/is

For some reason I don’t have any faith in GB being meaningful. Still a fun pin

Doubtful, they did a run of GB pro's around July.

I realize they have staffed up and are doing a much better job but use some of that MASSIVE TAX CUT and hire more people to get it done. Right Levi?

New meaningful code sparks more sales

Except that there was prior art that would have eventually invalidated it.

Ever. The most unfinished Stern hot garbage in their modern history.

Poor Lyman had to code Batman TWICE.

#1124 6 months ago
Quoted from Guinnesstime:

Poor Lyman had to code Batman TWICE.

Second time was more successful than the first...eventually. But to be fair, there was a lot more to work with.

#1125 6 months ago
Quoted from iceman44:

Hopefully they'll release a GB code update before I expire.

#1126 6 months ago
Quoted from vireland:

There's plenty of prior art with plenty of patents. The problem is that patent trolls / big companies hoover them up, then it is financially and logistically very difficult for smaller companies or individuals to successfully challenge it in court ... hence presumably why Stern attempted to patent it.

Also, there is absolutely nothing novel or patent worthy about buying LEDs (rgb or otherwise) from an OEM and putting them in a pinball machine.

Quoted from Shapeshifter:

I don't understand your reasoning for waiting to update. Oi mania didn't exist in prior versions, right? It wasn't broken by the update. What do you gain by not installing the latest code?

The whole thing looks more like first in, last out instead of first in, first out!

This has everything to do with Lyman being promised to work on BM66 until HE thinks it is done. It's game specific.

For some of the other titles, the teams are on other games, so they need to be put back on the other titles again.

4 weeks later

Let's warm this thread back up for Tuesday's address. Hopefully, they will announce when they expect Kiss and the last of BM66 to be completed.

#1133 5 months ago

i thought that was jack's home-brew pin?

#1134 5 months ago

Here's my predictions

1. Batman 66 just had another update released, the team will be finishing the games code soon.

2. The KISS update is now in testing and is scheduled to be released by the end of the year

3. The Star Wars topper is in its final stages of the final approval stages and will be released once the final final approval is recieved

4. A final Ghostbusters update will come following updates to KISS, Dead Pool, Guardians of the Galaxy, Batman 66, Iron Maiden, and Beatles.

Lol

Lol! Yes. I can read the headlines now "Stern Aquires JJP, Stops Production Of All JJP Games To Make Theirs Look Better".

Wow Ghostbusters code is even more delayed? It better be a substantial update...

Quoted from GrandFireball1:

Sounds more like they haven't even started on it.

#1147 5 months ago

Hoping this means oi mania gets fixed soon plus a few extras on the AC/DC code. Last run of AC/DC.

Final Encore:

The final encore is here for this legendary trio of rock and roll games from Stern Pinball. To help celebrate this milestone, all final production games of AC/DC Pro, Aerosmith Pro and Metallica Pro will include a commemorative collectible flyer signed by the lead designer (Steve Ritchie and John Borg) and programmer (Lyman Sheats and Lonnie Ropp)!

Gomez mentioned at Expo about the library insert needing to do something, the need for another wizard mode alluded to on the game card (Are you a God) and a good amount of polish needed. I would expect at least those items when the update finally comes.

#1149 5 months ago

Cannot wait for the KISS update!!!! Sounds like a major update to an already fun machine.....
