Quoted from Trekkie1978:

I have a Batman LE arriving soon. I can live with .6 code for now, because it's Lyman.
What games is Lonnie currently working on?
Dwight had solid code on the releases of Game of Thrones and Ghostbusters.

Lonnie is rumored to be doing Aerosmith.

Lonnie is watching how to code videos...

#2253 3 years ago

At 7:22 -- "The team's working on a big code update for KISS".

#2254 3 years ago

Yes that's been posted numerous times. Until it's released, who cares?

This reads harsh but I avoid games Lonnie is lead programmer on.

That's not harsh. Its sane, practical and based on evidence.

Whos this lonny person everyones talking about? A name like that sounds like a gang member or mobster ? If people keep talking about him on here you must know the facts and know him personally? ?

Hugs and KISSes for sure

Who believe's it'll be before May? Otherwise less than a year since the last code drop.

STERN facebook page header has gone black again.......

#2265 3 years ago

It seems like they only care about coding new releases enough to get them playable.

Once they've got sales coming in for a title with unfinished code, it's on to the next game, put in minimal amount of code to make it function, get some new sales and forget about the rest.

Not black. I'm sure there's a hidden message, like last time...

Okay, I just copied it and checked it in photoshop - nothing. Maybe you need to put it in a hex editor to see the message this time. Not interested enough to bother.

Cool thanks for looking anyway

From FB page:

This time, it says:
"вы ищете здесь

Which, roughly translated, says:
"you are looking for here
It is becoming
predictable"

batman 66 sle came with .6 beta code, a 15000.00 pin!!! tells you how much they really care. Gomez has promised a code release every 2 weeks until bm66 is done. i will believe it when i see it!

kiss will probably have one more update but i don't see it anytime soon.

You ask a lot of questions. Not sure if your last sentence was a question, a comment, or both? ?

Simple question but i guess it depends on what country your from aye

#2274 3 years ago

I just found it. It's called Aerosmith.

#2275 3 years ago

Sorry guys, but Aerosmith just killed Kiss!

I wouldn't gloat too much. It's all sunshine and roses until the game ships and the updates don't come. For all we know Aerosmith could get worse support than KISS.

It did? Kiss code will most likely be polished if not finished soon, go ahead and wait the 2 years for Aerosmith code to evolve!!

If you're moving Kiss right now for Aerosmith, you're just putting yourself at the mercy of Stern Code development once again and will be at the back of the line!! According to Stern, Kiss will have a major update soon.

I have a Kiss LE, and I won't be getting rid of it for anything... have plenty of games to play and will wait it out. The code WILL come and it has serious potential to be awesome, the flow and shots on this game are great IMO unlike other games out there.

#2280 3 years ago

Aerosmith is KISS. Same sounds, looks like same rules. Layout is practically identical.

So AS is the Kiss code update we are waiting for? LOL

(and I own a KISS LE)

#2282 3 years ago

more like aerokiss with .59 beta code.

#2283 3 years ago

Why would you think Aerosmith is running .59 beta code when it was done last summer?

Yep. Wasn't much design work done on the shots for Aerosmith, for sure. Took a KISS and essentially did a slightly more robust Shrek on it.

a 15000 bm sle with beta, will have to wait and see, don't be surprised.

I can't get over that it has the exact same modes, with pretty much the exact same shots, with the exact same sounds.

Some like to say that Star Trek and Spider-Man are similar. I can't think of 1 shared sound or mode.

Not EXACT same sounds...they did pitch shift them up.

#2288 3 years ago

I would hope that since Lonnie has his latest game shown and seems like the wheels are staying on that he would be able to get the update to KISS done and make many people happy.

#2289 3 years ago

I can't believe how similar it is. It's like they took out the star child area and put the jester lock in there and then added a mini playfield up the love gun ramp. It's crazy. It's like the same freak'n game.

Don't forget, the Gene head now shoots the ball at the jester box instead of straight down the middle.

Well, there IS one less pop bumper.

Maybe and this is not how it should work, but maybe Lonnie is going to kill two games with one code update, Aerosmith seems to have almost identical rules and a lot of shared sound effects, the rumour is Aerosmith will have fully completed code, is Lonnie ripping Kiss code to make Aerosmith code and then going to throw the polish and finish from Aerosmith back at Kiss with the necessary changes required for Kiss?

It sure as shit is not how Kiss should get completed, but if it gets every Kiss owner more polish and implements the cities even if it is a copy of Aerosmith (whatever cities will be on Aero) then its definitely better than leaving owners without anything. Kiss should have been finished on its own merits but if lazy Lonnie finishes it off the back of Aero then I guess its good they end up being similar, I just hope either way Kiss gets the polish it deserves and soon.

#2294 3 years ago

If you squint real hard you can almost see the changes there is at least 4 to 6mm difference between shots

#2295 3 years ago

Wonder if the upper playfield will share rules with the star child area?

I mean it's like they transposed star child and raised it up and replaced Gene with the jester lock thing.

#2296 3 years ago

I think it will play totally different from KISS even with the same layout.

#2297 3 years ago

I would say its more similar IJ4. Get rid of map room. Move ark over to left and add center KISS ramp. Remove sankara stone captive ball/ scoop for targets. Grail scoop is Dude scoops. Stand up targets spelling Aerosmith like Indy Jones but will probably play like spelling multiball on WOF.. l can see the KISS comp but it resembles IJ4 too.

#2298 3 years ago

Not defending Aerosmith or Kiss, but that comparison can be done with the same results in almost any pinball with a fan layout.

#2299 3 years ago

Exactly. Put it on any Ritchie game like No Fear ... exactly the same.

Wow. Just another form of cost cutting and way to increase profits. Same thing can be said about taking some sounds from KISS.
