Quoted from mrclean:

No one really talking much about the Hologram feature that it will supposedly have...I'm thinking Sega's Time Traveler Hologram game from 1991... It's going to be sick to have holograms on the playfield... did Stern miss the boat by not implementing that on Star Wars with R2D2 / Princess Leia?
I'm guessing it will be demogorgans ? You need to hit them or go past them as the playfield LED lighting / holograms of floating stuff... If that's the case it would be amazing.

Here's hoping its better than the lame Ghostbusters one. Or at the very least it is properly implemented.

Of the 3M you spent with this distributor did you get any games? Is this Madeoff Pinball Inc and associates?

Oh boy.

Please don’t attack me or the information I was given. I’ve never attacked you or anyone on this forum. I’ve spent $3M with this distributor this decade. I’m an amusements operator. They have no reason to lie to me. I stated what I was told.

I’m not attacking you. I’m correcting your misinformation. Facts matter. Correcting incorrect information does not constitute an attack.

One more time if you still don’t understand:

STERN ISN’T MAKING MMR.
PERIOD.

Quoted from Yoko2una:

Kind of a tough question because what defines a full ramp? I think of TSPP and it has the right ramp, treehouse ramp, couch ramp, and monorail “ramp”. Then I think of all the Sterns with the crossover ramp. How many does WH2O technically have? RBION? HRC? Do shooter lane ramps count? Jump ramps? Once you define what a ramp is or isn’t, does JP2 still have 4 ramps?

Batman Forever has 4 ramp shots... so does Baywatch.

Yes but they put the R at the beginning and dropped the redundant M

Quoted from Tsskinne:

Probably the show soundtrack, but not the licensed music from the show.

Nothing a "little Cleland mod" cannot solve....

Monopoly has 4 ramps. Not real recent, but more recent than some mentioned.

So many posts, not as much as a squirt of evidence.

Elektra...4 ramps!

I appreciate the Cleland audio mods but at these prices more licensed assets should be expected in games. Stern did a great job with Ghostbusters licensing, probably their best effort with licensed assets since Lord of the Rings in my opinion.

Modifying audio is a nice option that I'm glad we have but it cannot replace the intent and choreography a sound designer and programmer creates using licensed assets while working on the project.

As someone that actually does customization I can't agree more. When a game has this built in, the time and effort put in can't just be replaced with simple music replacements. It's actually part of the game and it's very hard to truly replicate without sinking in so much time.

It's def an option to help but I rather not have to even use it as it can be so much more if done properly from the start

Now I hope to see this thing today based on the rumors...

For sure, ive always grown up with video games, and to this play still love them to unwind. My intent was to fill my basement with retro arcade games, old console setups, etc. Then, I played pinball for the first time at age 39. Well, plans change.

Just proves the point that lots of ramps does not equate to a good game.

Haha. Monopoly is a fine game just suffers greatly from a very boring wood choppy rule set.

How angry will you be if there is no steve's Farrah Fawcett Hairspray bonus included in the scoring?

Alexi Cherry Slurpee bonus?

Wow, you aren't much younger than me, and you'd never played one until 39?? Welcome to the club!

Artwork like that and similar ones posted here would look great on a mirrored backglass!

I think it would be badass to have this sign somewhere in the game.

Damn, chuckwurt you are in full-on super hyped mode for this one. I hope the trough of disillusionment isn't too extreme when the reveal actually happens.

Even just that during part of the attract mode would be cool.

#488 1 year ago

it would be impossible for the backglass to look bad if it's one of those posters. I just hope stern doesn't try to be too cute with it.

That will be your $750 LE topper you might see in a few years.

Yeah. Let's hope it doesn't have the studio name plastered in huge font all over the place like TWD.

Anyone know when exactly this distributor webinar is today? Would love to TRY to get some work done before that today rather than stalking this thread all morning hoping for news...

I love it too. It's one of my favorite things I've seen on tv/film in a long time.

Quoted from chuckwurt:

What’s the last game to have 4 ramps?
So Jurassic park has 4, so before that?
Demoman count if you use the center acmag ramp.
Fastbreak has four if you count the left orbit ramp.

Baywatch has 4 ramps...

Piranha DD this would be the backglass... competition for Casandra / Elvira.
