From the JJP group.. AWESOME!!!

All,

Version 1.30 is now available.

Please note this is a DELTA ONLY update. It currently updates any base game code.

It can be downloaded from the following link:

http://www.jerseyjackpinball.com/game-specific-downloads/the-hobbit-downloads/

Below is a list of the changes from 1.21 through the release of 1.30.

==============================================================================
== Legend ==
==============================================================================

+ Addition * Change/bugfix - Note

==============================================================================
== Version 1.30 ==
==============================================================================

=== Game Code

* More Into the Fire choreography.
* Improved Windlance choreography.
* Added Windlance awards 2x mode scoring, 2x playfield scoring, add-a-ball.
+ Barrel Escape.
* Arkenstone modes now properly restart after an add-a-ball event.
* REALLY scaled back Beast jackpot callouts.
* Mode won/ending fanfares unified.
* Fix Into the Fire stage 4 and victory lap lamps.
* Fix won modes not registering properly towards Arkenstone modes.
* Into the Fire scoring nerfed.
* Correct some stale blinking lamps.
* Defeat of Azog made a bit easier and higher scoring.
* Update mode hexicons.
* Ring Button can now be used during intial entry.
+ Book Mode Multiball. Adjustments control how many "easy" locks player
gets (light when Smaug locks light), and how hard it is to win points
and extra balls during Treasure Hunt.
* Fix drop targets popping back up after being hit during skill shot.
* Poppers hold off during extra ball and replay animations now.
* Cleaned up some book mode background speech.
* Arkenstone lit lamp effect should be more obvious now.
* Fix middle beasts' backstab.
* Smaug Multiball scoring nerfed.

=== Core Code

* Start button only shows Credits 0 if in attract mode now (not in-game).
* With SLOW restart set, game can be restarted on ball 1 with max players.
* Match awards credits now if interrupted by start.
* HSTD entry now times out after 60 seconds of inactivity.
* Coin-in no longer cancels HSTD entry (could cause game to get stuck).

=== OS

+ Manual version 1.6.

#2 3 years ago

Awesome. Should have my game soon

#3 3 years ago

Thanks for posting

#4 3 years ago

Thanks Drenden. It's like Christmas...again.

#5 3 years ago

I think these last 4

* Cleaned up some book mode background speech.
* Arkenstone lit lamp effect should be more obvious now.
* Fix middle beasts' backstab.
* Smaug Multiball scoring nerfed.

and

* HSTD entry now times out after 60 seconds of inactivity.

Are the new ones between 1.30 beta and 1.30

------

Also, its 400mb bigger
had a look inside to see the differences and it looks like all the videos for Battle of the 5 armies is in there... So should be pretty close and in 1.40 firmware.

#6 3 years ago

Congrats Hobbit owners!! Love how JJP stands by their code.

#7 3 years ago

Jack stands by his word.

#8 3 years ago

i just Loaded and was playing 1.3. Had Smaug multiball and beast multi ball stacked. I was having a pretty good ball with a lot of call outs and the game reset. This did not happen with 1.21. I will try another game and will see if it re produces.

#9 3 years ago

Are the game resets with 1.3? not sure I want to update if there is a rest bug. Anyone else have rest issues with 1.3

#10 3 years ago

No resets prior to installing 1.3. 2nd game on it, I had a reset mid game. Sending error log to JJP.

#11 3 years ago

I have gotten 3 resets now. Did not happen before 1.3. Two of the three times were smaug and beast multi ball running concurrent.

#12 3 years ago

Lloydjust PMed me back. Apparently the Hobbit Forums are reporting resets with 1.3 and he is sure Kieth will fix it

#13 3 years ago

I put in the 1.3 beta a few days back and no resets for me.

#14 3 years ago

Same issue , have got 2 Reboot with the 1.3 , with the 1.3P never reboot

#16 3 years ago

I just installed the official version 1.3. I had also a reboot.
In version 1.3 test, everything was working normally.

#17 3 years ago

Had mine reboot mid game with 1.3 also.

#18 3 years ago

Which also has problems reboot, passing the 1.21 code to 1.3 code?

#19 3 years ago

I rolled back to 1.21 and opened a ticket. There is a bug in 1.3 causing a reboot. Opened a ticket with JJP

#20 3 years ago

at this point if I'm running 3.1 beta over the last week with no issues, should I NOT install the new 3.1?

#21 3 years ago

I'm running 1.30P beta with no resets and been playing it a lot !

I'll hold tight and wait on a 1.31 ? Fix.

#22 3 years ago
Quoted from VolunteerPin:

Me too... no issues nor resetting happening. I wonder, is the beta slightly different?

#23 3 years ago

1.30 was pulled down from JJP's website. Says a fix is incoming.

#24 3 years ago
Quoted from Drenden:

I try to downgrading back to 1.21 and i have a error message on the screnn ...........

#25 3 years ago

Who wants to be the crash test dummy for the next version????

#26 3 years ago

i was running 1.3 beta w/ no issues at all. Is there a difference in 1.3 beta vs 1.3?

#27 3 years ago
Quoted from Skyemont:

i was running 1.3 beta w/ no issues at all. Is there a difference in 1.3 beta vs 1.3?

Yes, 1.3 crashes and causes the game to reboot in the middle of play.

#28 3 years ago

No resetting for me with v1.30. Several stacked Smaug and Beast multiballs on several games.

Were you able to play any of the videos or are you going by file names? JJP is encrypting files in delta updates now. Not on my PC at the moment to check.

#30 3 years ago

Nope, can't play. Just see name and size

#31 3 years ago

1.31 is out... Apparently fixes the reset.

"**** THIS REPLACES 1.30 and fixes the reset issue.

#34 3 years ago

Working well for me too - great job

#35 3 years ago

No crashes. Well done JJP getting this fixed over a weekend.

#36 3 years ago

Can anyone who has the 1.30 beta version confirm if there is any valid reason to update to the final version?

#37 3 years ago

If you have 1.30 beta there is no reason to go to 1.31. I didn't.

I would just to he safe go to 1.31. I had several games on 1.30 before it crashed. I was over a million to the first time. It only takes minutes to update. Good job jjp on a quick fix. Love jjp.

A 1/4th of a GB bigger, so I'd do it. Keith fixed the 1.30 reset issue in 1.31, so I'd do it.

In my game here and no issues.

LTG : )

#41 3 years ago

2nd game on the new 1.31 code update. Felt like an hour+ of straight multi-balls. Exhausting.

Hobbit1.31_(resized).jpg

#42 3 years ago

WTF?!

#43 3 years ago

wow, that score...wow.

And it is worth updating, if nothing else, when you get the ball lock it makes a really cool noise that it didn't with 1.30 beta...

#44 3 years ago

Which ball lock? Smaug or Mode ball lock?

#45 3 years ago
Quoted from Skyemont:

If you have 1.30 beta there is no reason to go to 1.31. I didn't.

Like Lloyd said it's another 1/4 + gig. Lots more additions within.

1.30P just under 1.1G
1.31 just over 1.4G

So yes update it.

Wow! You must have been more tired than Michael Phelps after a hard swim!

I have yet to break 800k and most of my games are in the 200k range. Jeesh.

#47 3 years ago

With the 1.31 code, I have a bug with sound.
In some parts, the sound is greatly reduced.

#48 3 years ago
