That's how you do a teaser.
Quoted from Fytr:
I think the fact that players/room couldn't hear any sound from the game also had a negative impact on the stream. Hard to have fun playing pinball with no sound. You'd think a splitter cable could have been used to get the direct sound feed to the stream and also still going through the game. Even if they'd switched back to game with sound for the LE would have been a good compromise.
Something they should look into for the future.
As a streamer who uses headphone jacks for audio out all the time, I really don’t understand why they had no sound from the game in the room.
There is a setting in Spike 2 that allows both headphone jack and game speakers to play at the same time.
We just keep the main game speakers at a low enough level so as not to cause any echoing.
I’m sure Jack and Stern know this already so there must have been a good reason.
Quoted from HighVoltage:
Synopsis is good, but conclusion is bad...
The problem is the pro has no upper playfield, and the premium has a bland upper playfield. It's not that the pro is better, it's that the upper playfield doesn't add enough.
The proper conclusion is that both need some kind of upper playfield that add more value:
Pro would be okay with an unsophisticated upper: maybe just a cool orbit shot with a spinner and a cheap virtual lock.
Premium/LE would add a lot more value with small additions: a spinner on the orbit shot, and at least a 3-bank of stand ups.
Perfectly said sir. This is exactly my take away so far.
Also, while the clear upper playfield is nice I can't help but miss the lighted inserts, saucers and drop targets.
