Quoted from StoneyFL:

My point is that I want to look at this thread because I'm interested in the game. I think I was pretty clear when I asked specifically about the moderation of this forum. If this is how things go around here, then fair enough.

Use the report link... or start a moderator feedback thread if you want a discussion on the matter.

#2154 1 year ago
Quoted from RGR:

Compare the effort on POTC compared with any Stern Maybe cabinet cracking and playfield quality? How about a brand new company being the first to innovate with the LCD and LEDS... Its all a bit sad really.

Stern's AC/DC Premium/LE was the first game with RGB LEDs, not WOZ.

Steve is quite proud of that, and will point that fact out to those who mistakenly thinks it's WOZ.

Quoted from flynnibus:

Heh, I'm sure that's been done like 100 times already, so I'm not going to pile on. I'm definitely not looking to ruffle feathers, I'm mainly trying to understand the way things flow around here. The derails in this thread, I feel, detract from it. But if that's okay with the folks that run the place then who am I to argue?

In the meantime I'll just scroll past the stuff I think is , and enjoy the anticipation for what I think is going to be an awesome game!

#2156 1 year ago

What are the chances Stern utilizes that new co-op system, internet capable BKSOR? They were talking about something werent they? Well what better time to release it.

Yeah after they knew WOZ was coming out with them.... Of course given the innovators that you say they are, they decided to use shit parts for the gun ironically also designed by SR who did a better version on T2. So it aint the designers that are the problem.....

Not sure about the size of the forum you run, but have you looked at how many posts are running on pinside? I'm sure they'll accept you as a volunteer if you want to police forums to be sure they stay as narrow as you feel they should be.

WOZ was announced in 2011, ACDC 2012. ACDC did ship first and the game contains 16 "tri color" inserts (same as RGB?). WOZ shipped with 100% RGB GI and insert lighting. That's a first and I don't believe Stern has offered a game yet with 100% RGB GI and inserts? Still regret selling my ACDC premium some days, great game.

Not fact but I think Star Trek (Premium/LE) would be the closest. RGB inserts, not GI.

#2162 1 year ago

Debating minutiae on technology and innovations. Nobody buying the games cares who invented or utilized what first.

If the game is good, it will sell

#2163 1 year ago
Quoted from StoneyFL:

I'm kind of new here, but I also run a forum. Are the mods normally this passive? Because this thread has gone way the fuck off the rails, and has become kind of a drag. I'm super excited about about BKSOR, and all this Stern vs JJP stuff (at least in this thread—I suppose there is a place for it) is annoying.

Quoted from StoneyFL:

I think I was pretty clear when I asked specifically about the moderation of this forum. If this is how things go around here, then fair enough.

If you have issues or questions with the way moderation is handled on this forum, open a mod feedback thread.

Note that this is not a Stern BK Club / Owner thread - moderation would have been less "passive" then.

We will probably see Black Knight vs JJP XXX buying advice thread(s) once JJP game is revealed.
In the meantime I don't see why JJP stuff should not be allowed here as long as it's not trolling or actively trying to derail the thread.

When a thread starts to be very long (we are at over 2,000 posts here), looking at key posts may help to quickly find useful information / reduce noise.

Announced is meaningless. Announced doesn't mean final product will ship with those features (ala JJP's Pirates).

AC/DC beat WOZ by a year for a game containing RGB lighting.

GOTG Premium/LE has all RGB inserts and GI.

Hogwash. Stern couldn't give a shit about JJP in the 2011/2012 time era. I'm not sure that they give a shit in 2019.

RGB LED lighting was going to happen in pinball regardless. Stern had already been moving to regular LEDs on their LE models, so the rest was inevitable as prices dropped.

Who is going to do co op online pinball first is my question. I want to play against you guys head to head over the internet

I could see this working with a retrofit kit on Deadpool. PVP or cooperative.

But if you really look at it they don't do the full-rgb treatment for inserts in a lot of their games, even the Premium/LED version of some of them. RGB GI is even less common in Stern, I'm not convinced that is such a bad thing but it is the truth.

That's a separate debate, and a more subjective one.

This debate was about parts.

Multimorphic has competitive online play in Heads Up and #cosmic-cart-racing . George Gomez has also said that online features are coming soon to Stern titles. I'm sure some co-op play will show up, too, once the infrastructure is in place.

I don't think he said "soon". In a recent interview around TPF with someone from Stern that was even more vague... couple of years vague.

Sure.. They were never concerned about competition or the embarrassment of a better quality product. Dam your blind.

Just imagine an updated f14,f35 the new Steve Ritchie head to head dog fight linked like NBA Fastbreak on location and via Internet in the home.

Yes, because in 2011 when Stern had been solo for over a decade, they were quaking in their boots when Jack announced WOZ.

Damn, you're naive.

#2182 1 year ago

My question, is have they gone to FULL rgb lighting like JJP? Those are impressive, unlike the ones in Star Trek Premium which don't have full range. I'll be super excited if BK has those kinds of LED's

Star Trek Premium/LE RGB's have full range.

The color changers in Star Trek Pro (the shot arrows) do not have full range. I think they did like 8 or 9 colors.

so that would mean the games made today are at the same level as those between 2001 and 2011. hmmm right. IJ, RCT etc are just as good as Maiden. Yep you know what your talking about. Art hasnt improved, gameplay... you need to quit while your behind

GOTG doesn't look to have RGB GI. I don't believe Stern has put a game out to date with 100% GI and insert lighting. Hopefully one day.

Hopefully THIS ONE! I'm hoping this one is like Maiden but with full transitional range RGB. It's time Stern!

JJP can ship a game in a timely manner and without a boatload of issues

That seems to be a much deeper and nicer blue than production

Correct. I misread that earlier.

#2195 1 year ago

Jjp lightning/lightshows are way beyond anything stern has did for the most part. Star trek premium/le does a good job but still a far cry from jjp pins imo . None the less both make great games and i love both companies and what they produce. I like to have a nice mix of jjp, stern and b/w pins in my collection as it makes for great variety and fun for everyone.

#2196 1 year ago

Unless JJP is making the next Black Knight, I really don't care...

#2197 1 year ago

I don't want to get in the middle of the JJP vs Stern debate as I dont own any of their pins. I have played plenty of modern Stern games and have enjoyed many of them and the only 2 JJP I've played are The Hobbit and Dailed in. I'm not a fan of wide body games but DI is beautiful and fun. I would love to own either one someday but all these prices are just too high for me, all 3 of my pins were slightly above 6k. I will say theme is key, BKSOR brings me back to a simpler time, even if it's a pro, so hopefully they deliver and maybe I can add my 1st Stern to my collection, even if I have to move on from one that I currently own.

When I poop it has much more aroma then a stone and it tastes way more intensive... I heard.
Stones are a far cry form poop imo. Non the less both are a great material for building houses.

(I prefer stone. )
