And dont forget the target decals that flashinstinct is selling!

Thanks. Confirms my thoughts. Thanks too to yancy.

And there is also the interactive speaker grills that Scott is working on. No price yet but I’m sure we will hear about it soon.

KT told me this morning that my game, #42, is going on the line next week. Looks like people around here may get it before Christmas. Once it starts on the line, I’ve no clue how long it takes to build and test.

I would bet 2-3 weeks until out the door.

Definitely check back when its finished... I'm super curious to know.

I'm #126... which I'm beginning to assume will have me land sometime in February or March.

thenotrashcougar Any thoughts around adding an option to randomize the Reactor music? I know im not the greatest player in the world and if I'm only getting to reactor 2 on average per game it might be cool to have the reactor music play randomly instead of hearing just the same two over and over.

What is everyone's thought on this?

I personally dont like the idea of randomized as a default, but I always think options are good.

I think it would be nice to have a user setting of
Reactor Music 1 = 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, Random. This would allow a user to select for themselves. I personally could see after a few months bumpring the value from 1 to 2, so i could then hear music from 2, 3, 4 on a more regular baisis (since I often make it through 3 or 4 reactors). Then a few months later bumping it to 3... Hopefully that makes sense.

It seems as though the music gets kind of more intense as you work your way through the reactors ,so the song for reactor 7 might not work as well for the first reactor .

"Play better!" Think of it as a new achievement when you hear a song you don't recognize

I’d like to see an option to have the music mixed up. I’ll never hear the later tracts without this feature.

Quoted from TigerLaw:

you will get deeper in the game. When I first got mine I was never getting past reactor 2. I now regularly make it 4 deep and have seen 5.

It honestly is one of the bonuses of this game that keep you coming back for more. I just want to hear the next track Then I want to not fail and actually hear it for a bit more the next time I make it there.

I am a decent player, but I know with practice I will eventually see the end of the game. (It will take years, but is an accompliable goal, esp since default EBs happen at 3 and 6?)

I agree. Gives you another reason to keep striving for later reactors. Better bet is to setup the game easier if you are never able to progress to later reactors.

Reminds me of playing endless hours of Tunnels of Doom back in the day (early graphical role-playing game for the TI 99 4/A) when we'd all get so excited when the color scheme would change when a deeper lever of the dungeon was reached. ...it's the simple things.

That's awesome news and makes sense in the context of batches as Charlie explained it earlier. Congrats, and here's hoping we get to my #120 quickly!

Isn't the Music repeating after reactor 3 anyway?!

#518 1 year ago
Quoted from DS_Nadine:

I've read that each reactor has its own music, so there would be nine tracts?

#519 1 year ago
Quoted from Fytr:

OMG Tunnels of Doom! My brother and i played that all the time when we were younger. In fact, i got him a TI99 and Tunnels of Doom for his b-day a few years ago. Since i didn't have a cassette deck for it, i rigged up an mp3 player to 'play' the data to make the game work!

Anyways, back to the TNA excitement-fest! Please keep sending pics and reviews and everything! I can't wait to get one for my collection!

#520 1 year ago

I played Tunnels of Doom every Sat / Sun morning after finishing my paper route. Great game.

TNA's music and sounds are awesome. I'd keep it as-is so you have to earn your way to the next level of music.

#521 1 year ago
Quoted from TigerLaw:

I believe each reactor has it's own track.

#522 1 year ago

That's the beauty of it, nobody really knows for sure because nobody's been all the way there yet!

It's all just rumour and mystery. Love it!

PS> For the record, I predict that if you blow the 9th reactor TNA will overload the shaker, subwoofer, and LEDs in an awesome explosion of lights/sound/motion that totally destroys the game but is so incredible that it's totally worth it! Game over man, game over.

The reactors I have seen are different colors now also.

That was my theory. That after you beat the last reactor you actually die and the game ends. Donkey Kong kill screen.

As I remeber it Scott said it loops after reactor 3.

But that was months ago so that might have changed.

I totally shut my face in shame from now on until I have my game and played the game the newest firmware installed.

PLZ SHIP NOW!!! XD

I think that if you beat the game it actually makes you time travel to the future!

Dude, you sound like you're as old as I am!
Cheers!

#534 1 year ago

Seriously,
I was a keyboard player for years. Played in many bands. Was into electronica music for quite a while. Experimented with many synths all the way back beginning in the early 80's with the Arp Odyssey, later the Access Virus before I lost most of my hearing to a virus infection (no pun intended). Scott is brilliant with his electronic music. Wish I had that kind of talent! Thank you Scott for this awesome table.

Yeah I'm just going to tell friends that come over that TNA is an actual time machine. Just beat the game & off you go! From looking at the photos, I'm pretty sure I saw a flux capacitor nestled underneath the playfield too. And for $6000, that's actually really good bargain for a time machine/pinball combo!

Since the odds are extremely high that nobody in my house will ever destroy the 9th reactor, no one will be able to prove me wrong either

Anyone know if one of these will be in Milwaukee anytime soon?

I was told that 1 or 2 MKE operators are possibly coming over to the Launch Party in Madison on Dec 9th to see if they want to buy. You should come over and help convince them

Yep, at least three in one day! Not too shabby at all. I predict they will sell an extra 50 at TPF next March.

#544 1 year ago

I ordered the shaker motor, knocker and mirror blades as well.. The pictures of the mirror blades on it look sweet.

Thank you for the video. Please mark as key post tigerlaw

#546 1 year ago

I'm curious?
What does TNA do absent a real knocker? I hope it doesn't sound like my Stern does with that annoying screech sound.

#547 1 year ago

It probably wont make any sound.

#549 1 year ago

OK, now for the next question

When does the knocker knock? Is it used for diagnostic cues like my F-14 does or just for free games, balls, hi scores etc?

Thanks..

This game is going to be our best seller ever... I truly believe that.

Scott Danesi is awesome!
