Quoted from OnTheSnap:

Any hints?
With such a great layout, seems like you could throw in a few modes, to quiet down the “it’s repitious”guys.

Dude, it already has a bunch of modes:
- complete the keypad mode
- shoot the left scoop to start reactor mode
- take the reactor critical mode
- blow the reactor mode
- plus the multiball jackpots are a hurry-up in that the targets will start to reset in a few seconds so you need to get the 2x, 3x, super quickly.

I think if Scott does decide to do that it'd be nice if there was still an option at startup to play "classic" mode.

There is also the risk/reward of building up the reactor jackpot before you destroy it. Then before doing that get multiball going and try to get the super jackpot/add a ball, then destroy the reactor for 4x. Nothing better than that!

Don't worry, I am adding things like Co Op Mode, Co Op 2v2 VS Mode, more sound effects, bug fixes, lighting adjustments, advanced operator adjustments, reliability improvements, etc.

I will not change the gameplay as it is (in my opinion) amazing as it stands.

Only improvement I can think of for players like Bowen is a 'fastest time to destroy the 9 reactors' award.

Over time, someone would become legendary for the fastest time in the world

Nice. Is there any chance you'll be open sourcing the code at some point? Seems like it'd be a fun game to mess around with.

Unfortunately no, mostly for insurance reasons, asset protection, and IP protection. There are all sorts of libraries that I created that I would like to keep private in that code. I have worked for years on them. Don't worry though, I am going to make sure to make this game the best if can be for you guys/gals.

Makes complete sense. Thanks for entertaining the thought at least!

I appreciate your understanding. I would love to open source this, but it is just not feasible. I do, however, still have my Earthshaker Aftershock code as open source if you guys want to see what the P-ROC code looks like under the hood. It has a similar structure to what I did on TNA, but this is not written on the skeletongame framework. The TNA code is also much cleaner.

#5463 2 years ago

One suggestion for the criticism of only utilizing the lower pf, is to make that you have to hit the 123 targets or the RAD targets (or both) in addition to nailing the drops in order to qualify locks. This makes you shoot for the upper pf other than to overheat the reactor, and just makes qualifying locks more dangerous, even moreso than the game already is.

Just read through Scott’s website. Wow what a cool journey from 2016 to now!

#5467 2 years ago

Played TNA on location for about an hour today and managed to get the super jackpot! Such an awesome feeling. Can't wait to see what else will be coming to this game.

#5468 2 years ago
Quoted from Roostking:

TABS, NOT SPACES

Am I missing a joke? Scott freely shares code to a game he has spent a lot of time on, and your response is to critque his formatting? Please tell me I have misunderstood.

It’s a joke. Ever watch Silicon Valley? It’s a silly nerd debate

That's good to hear. No, I've never watched that show. I have a 6 year old, so I hardly ever watch anything. I'm aware of the debate, which is why, lacking the context of knowing it was a joke, I found it to be a petty comment.

THANK YOU!

#5472 2 years ago

I was fortunate enough to play a new TNA this weekend at a local party. It had the new CO-OP and TEAM mode on it.

It was an awesome game prior to those features, but now it's awesome * 2.

Scott really is one of the most creative talents in pinball at the moment.

#5481 2 years ago

Got several games in at the Cidercade in Dallas last Saturday at nicovolta 's going away party. Got to reactor 4! It played great and we had a good time there. Lots of cider, LOTS of pinball. I didn't count but more than 20 machines I'm pretty sure. Good ones too! Very nice shape, all well maintained...

I knew you wouldn’t stop until I bought one! This game is going to sell more than Alice.......That’s a fact! The wait is the only thing holding this game back now.

bryan_kelly It looks like the target decals are under the rivets. Does Spooky have to install these?

Clearly you missed something. If I was going to mess with someone, why would I figure out how to make a fake t-shirt with a pithy response..

#5487 2 years ago

Well, ordered Alice yesterday and last week was told TNA ships out today (#107). Here’s to hoping that is still true after the huge day Spooky had yesterday.

Yes, I missed that it was a joke. I apologize for that.

As for the t-shirt, it would not have had to have been a fake. It could very well have been a real t-shirt that already existed, even if it was meant to be taken seriously. It is also very easy to make fake images of t-shirts with basically anything on them.

I just paid my deposit. How do I find out what number I am? Couldn't tell from the invoice.

My invoice had no info other than invoice #2017. Quick email to spooky and they confirmed I'm in at 386. I'm excited!

Any waiters sent more than the 1000 deposit? I’m getting nervous sitting on all this money. Don’t trust myself to not buy a Maiden lol. Or maybe I’ll buy a Maiden and save hard til my TNA is ready.

Lol... I will hold it for you.

I’m watching my TNA tracking as it departs Chicago. On its long journey to the west coast.

You can pay in installments to spooky up to delivery. I know a few that did so to make it less of a one time hit at the end.

I paid my total upfront but that was because of a good exchange rate at the time.
