    Quoted from ZMeny:

    At least Dennis brings some bitterness to the cheese. A nice balance I suppose

    Dennis is more like cheese in the crust. Something not needed nor invited, but rarely unwelcome. If Dennis was a pizza he’d be veggie special with cheesy crust. Zach is more of a meat lovers special guy, he wants every inch covered with topping and no stuffed crust (unless it is deep dish).

    This simple example highlights how different these two host are. Zach already lost a competition against sdtm cohost Greg. If he loses this twip contest with Dennis, he may slit his wrists and commit harry carry. Dennis could you add a poll to speed things along - who do you prefer to listen?

    I lost no competition against Purrrooo Greg. But I agree with your pizza comparisons.

    No polls, my heart was broken when I lost the Market Trends one.

    Greg has a level of charm that Zach probably had trouble combating. I have no charm, it's why I was compared to cheese. I think this is a social experiment to see how long it takes for Zach to break me mentally.

    As an aside, I never order cheese-stuffed crust. I prefer thin-crust pizzas.

    Aliens is one of my favorite movies. Used to play the arcade game when I was a kid. The arcade game was fun but nothing like the movie. What do you think about the game Dennis?

    #170 1 year ago

    This podcast, like so many others tend to have a sound level that stays somewhat consistent and then a host yells, or they play a sound byte and my speakers in my car nearly blow out. This latest TWIP they put in some obnoxious screaming sound byte (twice) that was 5x as loud as the hosts and I nearly drove off the road as I scrambled for the volume knob.

    Is there a way for listeners to keep a maximum sound level for amateur podcasts? I cannot find any settings in Apple's podcast player.

    Thanks.

    The pinball game? I like where the rules/code went with it, but I found the layout clunky and thus my overall assessment of it is "it's okay".

    Syncing phone to the car system? You can set the max volume output from the phone via the media slider (at least on Android), but you'd need to play a loud sound to know what level you want that at (and the risk of course is the soft sounds might end up too quiet and you end up fiddling with the volume control during an episode).

    No, I’m referring to the Konami aliens arcade game from the late 80s. Have you played it?

    It was the screaming goat. Not the first one but the second time. I had my headphones on and jumped because I thought someone had snuck up on me. Good times!

    #174 1 year ago

    I thought the screaming was awesome too. Just turn down the volume. Shouldn’t need it that loud to hear the podcasters. Then if there’s a spike in sound, it shouldn’t be overwhelming.

    I’m disappointed you didn’t swing for the fences with a try. Lack of experience needn’t cloud one’s ability to give expert opinions. Don’t know how you’d be expected to know what Aliens machine he was asking about. Got some pics of the machine in question coz ?

    The 1990 shooter game is loosely based on Aliens franchise and the screen quality is meh by today’s standards. Many people liked the Alien figures or found them creepy good. It’s entertaining to blow up Aliens I’ll admit and that may even be in our dna. At the time Aliens came out, I remember playing it and feeling the animations weren’t that good. Had forgotten about the game until today. Blocked it out after my initial disappointment. I expect more integration from my Aliens arcade games, but willingly spend 20 hours in front of one.

    Yes. Correct. Not an insult. I dig the show content. Like many podcasts, due to budget limitations I’m sure, sound is not professionally engineered.

    Aliens Extermination looks interesting too.

    mudflaps episode was so good I wanted to redesign his avatar as a gift of gratitude. Unfortunately my cut and paste skills in photoshop aren’t that good so providing my art files for someone else to create a great meme and a future great avatar for him. Congratulations Sir, I can assure you this little project is going to turn out fantastic because you’ve earned that today. :beerchugging:

    When listening to TWIP I pay attention to different voices used by each person and the value added of dialog in character. At the end of the episode, I mentally assign a winner. This week goes to ..... envelope please .... this is nerve wracking.... the winner is Tony Bennett. Wow he was great and I didn’t even know he was still alive. And Mudflaps wins the trophy, 56 cents in loose change and handful of belly button fuzz.

    Great show Mudflaps. Definitely a winner. Who’s that other guy that was in with you again?

    I think Tony Bennet could be a recurring character to come on for game insights.

    #189 1 year ago

    mudflaps needs to come back for sure

    #190 1 year ago

    Mudflaps is a great choice as a guest on a Podcast. I have not listened yet but I can imagine it is a fun episode. What a yapper on that guy.

    The Northern VA pinball crew misses you dude.

    Fightin’ words!

    Good episode, but I was misquoted during last week’s episode. I said it was Jack’s prerogative to run his business as he pleases. I did *not* say it was okay to lie to his customers.

    Lying is not okay, unless your spouse asks you if they look good in the new yoga pants.

    #193 1 year ago

    Maybe the yoga pants just aren’t your color?

    My apologies, I didn't remember the quote myself or I would have countered the statement before initiating my rant.

    That said, it does appear a lie was indeed told to Jeff now that we know the games are shipping, so the topic seems timely and relevant. I get really mad at businesses that lie to the public. Not sure why it sets me off so much, but it does.

    I agree that Jack either (1) knows nothing about his business or (2) lied. In this case, it’s better as a business owner to use the Glomar response, i.e. cannot confirm or deny. Integrity is critical.

    On the bright side, Wonkas are shipping. It’s just too bad there was some self-inflicted drama.

    There was a quoted comment from EP 53 about how JJP uses JAVA for programming, integrating A/V. It was suggested that this accounts for Wonka synchronization problems. Nonsense. While I am no longer under NDA (probably) I still won't go into detail but it is safe to say in integrating A/V for three three big pinball games on the JJP system there never was any problem making the audio sync with display effects.

    Just alternate Mudflaps and Dennis. They are both great and I like how Dennis puts the smack down on the pinball market trends!

    Good show as usual this week.

    Thanks for the feedback. I had another programmer contact me with skepticism regarding what I mentioned. I reached out to the programmer who originally brought the issue up with me, who clarified it was off jre info in the bootstrapper not direct knowledge of how the assets work (note neither of these programmers were with JJP). I did reach out with a query to some at JJP but they refused to discuss the programming.

    I appreciate the clarification and will be happy to note it on the next episode I am on (I can avoid citing by name if that makes things easier). I hedged citing as a fact but given confirmation it is not in play I want to get that out there (for those who care).
