Good to see the side rails/backbox back.

Thanks for posting Dan. I will work on installing this later!

V1.41 - December 27, 2013
=======================

- added side rail and back box flasher lamps to the attract mode.

Greg Colton's pissing and moaning paid off hehe

#9 5 years ago

The pro read me has release notes from older patches now. Dunno if that's new.

#10 5 years ago

updating now

#11 5 years ago

Big time kudos to Stern for getting the side rail lighting issue fixed so fast!

Thumbs up.

#12 5 years ago

The blue flashers for the Star Trek insignias on the head on the LE have now been enabled.

#13 5 years ago

This one seems like a great addition that I didn't know about: "3 in a row - give 2 awards when 2 rows are complete at the same time". That will change my play strategy a lot.

#14 5 years ago

Damn! Nice work stern!

#15 5 years ago
Quoted from jfh:

Default is still set on easy

#16 5 years ago

Yeah. Now this is an update I will download.

PS: thank you Greg for bitching.

#17 5 years ago

HUZZAAAAH!!!!

#18 5 years ago

Thank you Stern and ST team! I bought speaker LED kits and moved my speaker flashers up to the back box emblem to make it brighter 2X flashers in each emblem, looks bad ass in attract mode check out the picts. This game is truly stunning to look @ and play.

OK. I'm finally moving to my new place this weekend. I need to unbox my STLE soon... I am really liking the new software guy at Stern so far!

Lonnie isn't new

#21 5 years ago
Quoted from Eskaybee:

Lonnie isn't new

Is Lonnie writing most the Star Trek software?

#22 5 years ago

But the rumor is Tanio will be taking over the project. Possibly so Lonnie can move on to the next project?

#23 5 years ago
Quoted from markmon:

Lonnie and Tanio tag team. I don't think stern wanted to make the same xmen mistake so Lonnie is showing him the ropes until he feels comfortable to leave Tanio alone on the project. At least that's the speculation.

#24 5 years ago

Tanio is a fantastic programmer and is the best person for the job expect greatness!

#25 5 years ago

Tanio and Lonnie are a team. It is a joint effort for Star Trek and I think they bring out the best in each other

#26 5 years ago

Whoever is doing it doesn't matter. The game play is fun and updates are coming out and that is all that matters.

#27 5 years ago

Cools - just installed....the speaker panel & side panel emblem flashers are lit during Attract mode now! That's new.

#28 5 years ago

Really nice to see such a quick turnaround for this update, gotta give Stern credit here...

#29 5 years ago

Can someone post a pic of the speaker panel flashers in action?

Looks better in person but still pretty subtle compared to the speaker panel mods out there.

=======================

- warp chase lamps now cycle 2 times.

Thanks guys! Question are the speaker panel lights on all the time or do the flash?

#34 5 years ago

They

Quoted from Concretehardt:Thanks guys! Question are the speaker panel lights on all the time or do the flash?

The speaker lights are only on in attract mode. They are solid when lit and turn off when the flasher sequence runs. They go off as soon as you start a game and remain off.

RIght now they're just on during attract. However, they are flashers - and none of the Prem/LE flashers are coded for gameplay use yet. The spotlights/asteroid flashers don't do anything during gameplay at the moment. I'm guessing all of these flashers will have code in the next update or 2.

#36 5 years ago

Uploaded 1.41 to CP Pinball tonight. The backbox lights look better and speaker panel. Got to Amok and was blinded by the lights on that mode. Kicker missing still does not award ball back. I put up 234m. Did not get very far into lvl 3. Just wish the kicker would be fixed soon!

Damn, I dunno how you do it. This game beats me up like no other...maybe I'm just not used to the geometry yet, but I am NOT good at getting consistent ramp shots...I'm always hitting the targets or something. The ball is very wild in this game. Hopefully I'll bet better soon. I've definitely lost a lot of opportunities from the kickback missing or not firing twice in a row if the ball went over the switch again.

Lots of ball cradling on mb and staging flippers for klingon supers. Make sure to hit the glowing shots if they are the last shots on the modes.

I agree, this is huge. Getting super ramps and super spinner at the same time is a great combination. Or super spinner and super pops. A little riskier to try to go for 2 at once, sine you have to complete 5 modes instead of 3, but it can pay off later. Was playing with this tonight and I love this new feature.

Oh, I wasn't talking so much scoring strategy - but just staying alive long enough to complete all Level 2s!!!

Quoted from Concretehardt:

Thanks guys! Question are the speaker panel lights on all the time or do the flash?

I just installed v1.41 and the speaker and side flashers now flash and also can light up solid but it only seems to work in attract mode now and alternates between flashing, on solid and off. I don't think they do anything yet wile playing a game but maybe I haven't got that far yet.
This kind of changes my plains to add LED's to the speaker unless I can connect and power my new led strips to the flasher so they are also controlled by the game code. It looks like both speaker flashers #42 are connected to the same drive transistor Q42 and is listed as 20 volts DC in the manual but the flasher LED is a #89 blue LED. I believe a #89 LED is 13 volt AC or DC so if this flasher is powered by 12 volt DC it should power my LED strips also but each strip draws .25 amps so 2 would be .5 amps. I wonder if the circuit could handle the extra load. If not adding spacers under the speaker should let in more light from the flasher so the extra LED strips might not be needed. I am in the process of making a bracket for the LED strips.

Yeah probably one of the best additions hoping to get some more play time on it soon. Great way to add some strategy to how you can attack this beast.

#44 5 years ago

So you guys are saying you can't have 2 awards running at the same time? If not then what is the benefit of getting them at exactly the same time vs at different times. Awards carry over from ball to ball so I don't think I see the big deal of getting them at the same time. Or am I missing something?

Quoted from markmon:

Why's that? You get one award for one line before. So when you do the second line you get the second reward. This just sounds like a bugfix, like if you played 4 modes and saved the corner for last, then it would only have given you one instead of both. No reason to play that way unless you just like trying to pull a rope-a-dope in competition lol.

The only way this would seem to matter is if the scoring for all modes is put towards both rewards, instead of just the scoring for three modes, you get scoring for five, and then the "super" rewards value is set from the higher value. Test it and let us know?

I've been meaning to look into this closer, but it doesn't seem like you can get a new one running after the first one is started.

I don't think so. You only get one captains chair award per grid. So if you do 3 in a row, that's your reward until you complete the grid, run through the resulting wizard mode, and clear the grid for the next stage. Now you can get two rewards instead of 1 with a little planning.

#48 5 years ago

Can anyone confirm that the "StarTrek" typeface font is gone that was used in mission names, Bonus word, etc. excluding the STAR TREK Title image, to make space for new animations inside it's code space? If so then the pinball browser tool has no issue with this version which is good. Else we might need a new version?

That's idiotic, if so. Just another in a long line of incosistency on the part of Stern and their code/playfield art.... christ...can't these guys get anything right that's not Tron or AC/DC?
