“Will you ever buy another NIB Stern?”

  • Nope. They've lost my business for good with their poor code update structure and PR 55 votes

Thanks I forget just how lame that game WAS.

Quoted from Rarehero:

What a bullshit justification for unfinished game. Why not just unplug all your DMDs then.
I'm not talking about public outrage...I'm talking about doing the right thing. Just because YOU don't care doesn't mean it's right for a $6k+ NIB game to be missing animation for it's final mode. A flasher bug would probably take 2 seconds to fix and another 2 to upload as an update. Just because YOU are OK with unfinished code & bugs doesn't make it acceptable. We get it....finished games aren't important to you....you may have convinced yourself it's acceptable, but no one else is buying what you're selling.

I spoke to Lonnie about the Thor flasher issue. He could not duplicate the problem, hence it isnt a problem. However, it does seem like a very sporatic issue. I started digging into when/why/how it doesnt always flash and gave Lonnie some data. He started digging further himself and came up with a few ideas and may have had it pinpointed. Unfortunately, someone (gomez is my guess?) pulled the plug on him & the AV Code; and we never got an update with a working flasher. This all happened around the time i sold my AVLE which i think was back in March or earlier (coincidence? or just a bad day of tweaking gomez's design?).

In any case; Lonnie did some great code in Avengers and it would be awesome if he were allowed to revisit it.

Quoted from Rarehero:

It seems to happen every time I have a game going...when the character modes are running - their flashers are pulsing...Thor's doesn't...or it starts but then stops.

agreed; and when its not flashing, it sticks out like a sore thumb. I really hope Lonnie is given some time to work on this bug as well as add some more magic to this great game

I like looking forward to new code as well, however not in the 1-2 year time frame.

Exactly! Unless its ACDC and getting an update every other month for a year.
