Any updates on PS3 titles being released?

#1502 6 years ago

I'm genuinely upset that there is no Xbox One version of this game.

#1503 6 years ago

Its coming soon.

So... what's the next table to be released?

#1505 6 years ago

They still don't have "touch" controls on Steam version. Arggg.

#1506 6 years ago
Quoted from Thunder424:

High Roller Casino.

Quoted from Jean-Luc-Picard:

They still don't have "touch" controls on Steam version. Arggg.

"We were able to get touch controls to work. Unfortunately, the DLL it requires isn't supported on Win XP. If I released the build with that in, Win XP users could no longer play at all. I haven't had time to work on a fix for that. So for now its disabled."

#1507 6 years ago

WindowsXP...? MS doesn't even support that OS anymore.

#1508 6 years ago

How about moving a DMD to another monitor. So simple.... Pinball FX2 has it... It is not that complicated.

Quoted from Pinballwiz45b:

"We were able to get touch controls to work. Unfortunately, the DLL it requires isn't supported on Win XP. If I released the build with that in, Win XP users could no longer play at all. I haven't had time to work on a fix for that. So for now its disabled."

Really, We are going to disable a feature based on an OS released in 2001. 13 fucking years ago?

But the main thing I am ticked off by is the lack of moving the DMD to a new monitor. I want to move my Vcab to work. So I can move in a Baby Pac man. But, I want everyone at work to have a great experience. Not a tablet PC with buttons attached to legs.

Quoted from EricR:

You do realize how long "soon" has taken?

#1510 6 years ago
Quoted from navajas:

We were talking about the XBox One not the XBox 360 (which I agree has been strung along forever since Crave went bankrupt).

Farsight announced that they were in fact going to make an XBox One version of the game in their newsletter #26 sent on April 11th quoting a mid-summer release. Before that there was a lot of doubt whther they would make an XBOne version at all after what they went through for the XB360.

"If you've been paying attention to Microsoft's ID@Xbox initiative you might already have caught this, but we're proud to announce that we have been hard at work on the Xbox One version of Pinball Arcade! We're expecting to launch mid summer 2014 with the entire Season Two collection. "

The only reason I'm keeping up with the news on the XBOne version is because they are delaying season 2 for PS4 until 30 days after the XBOne launch to meet with Microsoft's new indie publishing policy (which apparently saves FS a lot of money in submission fees).

#1511 6 years ago

(Forwarded email via friend. Cabinet support will happen. It's halfway to being complete.)
Hello Rick,
So sorry for the long delay in answering this. I am the person you most likely talked to at the Expo. I have been away for a week and did not see this until I returned.
Here is the situation on the Cabinet support. As you know, Paul at Virtuapin has given us a beautiful cabinet to work with and we are actually about halfway through the process.
The schedule we have already set up, one table a month, already takes up a good deal of our time. The other projects we have on our plate (Pinball Construction Kit, Pinball After Dark and the Cabinet Support) all have to be worked on during hours that are not already scheduled for the regular releases of Pinball Arcade. When we got the VP table last year we did not envision having to spend so much time other important projects. The largest of them being Xbox1 and PS4.
The Cabinet version is by no means a dead project. This is something we will release when we can. unfortunately, like last year, we are just not sure when that will be.
But we will... I promise.
Thanks for liking our game and being part of our pinball community,
Norman Stepansky
Producer
FarSight Studios

BUMP:

- Next Kickstarted table confirmed! Expect an Addams Family kickstarter sometime this summer.
- 4 tables upcoming release for PS3 + PS4 (Black Knight 2000, WHO dunnit, High Speed, Junkyard)
- Next table is Diner + FunHouse as free table of the month

#1513 6 years ago

You skipped the MAJOR news (from their newsletter) though... (OK, you didn't skip it-my quick reading skills did..)

If you are thinking... "Don't tease us any more with the Addams Family™ back glass!" Guess what? We aren't. We've agreed upon terms with all of the major licenses and clearances we need to FINALLY do a Kickstarter to recreate the highly anticipated ADDAMS FAMILY™ pinball table!!! We have been working on this for a long time, and it's finally becoming a reality! We expect to launch the Kickstarter this summer, so get ready fans! We will need your help!

Read the post above yours more clearly -.-

But yes, it's very good news to see Addams Family making its way over.

Interesting that people downvote his post

- redman822 copied + pasted the TAF unveil in the newsletter
- they thumbed it down because I already mentioned it

That's a direct quote from the Farsight newsletter. Doesn't necessarily mean that he works for them.

#1518 6 years ago

I work for Farsight??? That's news to me... (I thought I had put in in a 'quote box' - not sure what happened there.)

But, no, I do not work for Farsight and should have done a better job attributing the quote. (And reading the post above mine.)

#1519 6 years ago

I would be surprised if Farsight had a presence here that they made known. They would have to deal with a lot of flack, but rightfully so IMO.

They've got their own forum:

So it's new table release day!

- High Roller Casino received an update a week ago that enhanced lighting and made the right orbit easier to shoot
- Diner will be released today with Funhouse as a free table
- TAF kickstarter "unsure of startup, read newsletter for more info"
- Bram Stoker's Dracula highly speculated as next release
- "don't count on POTO for this Halloween"
- Tales from the Crypt is too mature for TPA and will be included in "Pinball After Dark"
- Bone Busters?

#1522 5 years ago

Yep it's out! Diner was just released today! Did anybody get the hint for the next table in the newsletter?

#1523 5 years ago
Quoted from yuriijos:

The next table is the highly speculated Bram Stoker's Dracula to bring the season to a full-circle closing (the first table was another infamously hard table, Fish Tales)

#1524 5 years ago
Quoted from Wolfmarsh:

And this is why Stern doesn't frequent these forums. I can't blame them.

#1525 5 years ago

Hopefully they update HRC so it plays a bit slower. It's at least twice as fast on my iPad (1) than any other machine on there. Very weird.

#1526 5 years ago
Quoted from Kineticross:

I have heard that but what is it in the newsletter that hints that?

#1527 5 years ago

Here's the hint. Looks like it will be BSD, after all.

#1528 5 years ago

Pretty sure the next table is Bad Cats.

Maybe I'm just dense, but I don't get a BSD reference there. Not saying that it's NOT BSD, I have a strong rumor that it is, I just don't get the reference if it's there.

#1530 5 years ago

Google "look at me i'm helpless as a" Guess what comes up that's musical "Misty" as in Mist multiball then someone also said La Paloma is the name of the california estate of Bela Lugosi, so it does sound likely that it is BSD
.

I think you nailed it. BSD is going to be awesome, probably the best title for this season by far IMO.

#1532 5 years ago

Man. Lately, these things have been just a torture to play. So much unlike how a pinball really moves. The ball moves way too fast.

#1533 5 years ago

Wow... that's pretty cryptic! I'm impressed that they came up with it, and someone solved it.

#1534 5 years ago

The picture also has a hidden paw print and whiskers. I think the BSD guessers are over thinking it.

#1535 5 years ago
Quoted from westofrome:

I think those are human hands on the Dr. Dude logo (which needs to be cleaned up) and have nothing to do with the clue. The print is from a human as well; the same applies.

Once again, it's that song. Looking further into the song, "And I feel like I'm clingin' to a cloud", mostly refers to WIIIIIINDS (Mist Multiball) in BSD.

#1536 5 years ago

Shame there doesn't seem to be an XBOX ONE release anytime soon...

#1537 5 years ago
Quoted from Daredevil:

From the latest newsletter:

"The XBox One version is scheduled to go into pre-certification next week! We can't wait to get this version into the wild. The tables are looking great!"

Not sure if this is the same case for the 360...

Pre-certification? The problem is that MS decides when a game gets released online, and that's even after it's fully certified and ready to go. So pre-certification doesn't make me think it's gonna be soon.
Also, zen pinball is releasing before the month is out and MS will want to space out two pinball titles. So I'd be surprised if it's anytime soon. I hope I'm wrong though...

I have tried VP before. Not a big fan of the tools

Ahhh. What about future pinball? I think that is easier/more straight forward and with the newer physics patch works much better.That is the platform all the new sterns are emulated on.

#1547 5 years ago

Would love to see more newer stern games get made for this. No chance of stern letting it happen for any games that might get a VE, but HRC is a good start.

#1549 5 years ago

Plus they already have firepower.

#1550 5 years ago

I never tried Future pinball. I guess at the end of the day i would like to see more pre-rendered pinball games like Timeshock by Pro-pinball. Not that the real-time FP and VP aren't fun its just that they will always far short graphically compared to something pre-rendered. Frame rate too. Since a pre-rendered game isn't processing as much geometry it will always have a higher frame rate and there by better game play(i think). And it looks soooooo much better.
