I quite like Lonnie's games. Are the modes similar to Transformers ? I REALLY like Transformers by the way.

Haven't play TF that much but for me KISS is just way more fun. It's like being at a concert and having the actual band members doing call outs really adds to the authenticity.

The code is decent but unfinished.

If Stern does release a decent update no reason why they wouldn't sell a ton more.

And the ramps are mainly nice wireforms as opposed to SW plastic.

I've never played Transformers but the KISS rules on Tilt Forum compare the modes to transformer modes. So yes!

Yep, some of them are similar.

Transformers is a fun game .. the best part about it is the sounds. I put a 10" sub in my one and it shakes the house.

DEVVVVESTATORRRRRRRRRRR!!!

I love Transformers. Such an underrated game. You're right, the sound is awesome.

#3106 2 years ago

Not many KISS over here in the UK. I presume the bulk of the games were sold in the US, Germany and Oz.

#3107 2 years ago

While waiting for the code update.....

Added Mezmods yellow protectors to go with the yellow rubbers.

Anyone hooked up a color LCD on KISS yet to see what it looks like? Thinking yellow/gold would look good.

I posted this video for Randy at ColorDMD when he was first testing Sigma on SPIKE. This is yellow. The camera doesn't pick up the color well, but honestly, the red looks just as good (or bad). I'm hoping when code is finished, someone will colorize for ColorDMD like SM and IM.

Time to do mine to. If anyone has tips on how to tear down that area please share.....

#3111 2 years ago

All the talk about a code update for Kiss is why we don't have color done for it yet. I am sure if we ever get an update color will be worked on. The request has been made plenty to the folks at ColorDMD. They have done a great job to get many of the new titles done.

#3112 2 years ago

Has anyone here had this issue:
When i hit my left flipper, it fires 4 times very fast then dies.
Not sure what to look for here

It wasn't too bad - main thing is to take photos all along the way as I for one, never remember where to put things back!

That looks good

Presume you used Mezelmod so that it can fit?

For power? I don't remember. I swapped temporarily with my MET just to show Randy, and then I swapped back. I can't remember how it plugs into SPIKE for power.

I have bought one of these and will transfer a LCD from another game in next few weeks.

Think I may try HIRES in purple and see how it looks.

I had to look at an old thread to see how I powered it. I sell my TV's and tree house through Mezelmods, and I recommend that power adapter to SPIKE customers, but I know I don't have one, so I was a little confused on how I actually powered the display for the test.

The newer Chroma displays only require 12v, so I unplugged the speaker light kits and used that power source. I was wondering why the speakers were not lit in the video. I thought maybe I did it because the light wasn't good for the camera when filming the display.

Very carefully. Lots of pictures and zip lock bags. Plan to spend a several hours on it. I would consider putting on a playfield protector if you are going to tear it apart. They are great!

#3119 2 years ago

This week for update?!

I wish they would just get this final update out and done.

The code is pretty good so just polish /bug fix and finish and then maybe someone can start the color dmd process

I'm still holding out for a cheap KISS Pro regardless of whether new code drops or not.

#3126 2 years ago

I posted up in another thread, But Stern has told me from very high up that another code release is coming out this year for Kiss. But that it will be later in the year.

That is good news and although still a way off, will help restore faith in the Stern coding department.

If the update is decent, they should sell a good few more.

restore faith? Screw them! they take your money and run, they leave you hanging and practically begging them for something that you paid for and should be getting. i sold my kiss le and bailed on any future stern nib. stern is dead to me, gb le ghosting and kiss was the last straw. i should start a star wars where is the code thread cause thats next, i can guarantee that. bm66 sle buyers that shelled out 15000 and what did they get? i would feel like i was prison ganged raped if i bought a bm sle!
stern doesnt care believe me. at least not until people stop buying and demand completed codes at release.

#3130 2 years ago

The update will only be a bug fix! They have no intention of adding or updating game rules! The update promise is to help distributors sell out of the crap loads of inventory they own. Sorry, but true!

Well, Stern are in danger of making hay while the sun shines but come hard times, people are going to remember this kind of stuff, and then they will be in a drought and it will be too late....

Thinking about this, if Stern had any integrity why can't they officially say 'Kiss code is being worked on and there will be an update in 2017'.

Is it really that difficult to do?

Totally agree! But the corrupt business antics continue and people keep buying the games which are incomplete. Truly ridiculous. I can't wait to see what happens with Star Wars.. Some stupid crap like... Oooh we have beta code 0.17 ready!!!!!!!! Stay tuned for our next release in the meantime! WTF?

#3137 2 years ago

Stern haven't officially said anything. It's still just rumors.

#3138 2 years ago

Anyone have any idea what is going on as got an issue.....

Start Lick it Up.

2 shots lit. If one of them is Gene's head, ball can keep going in but it doesn't register. Ball is just fired out of the mouth as usual.

But it does register the demon locks?

I can see a switch under the p/f but not understanding why it registers a lock but not song shots?

Anyone?

Thanks

#3139 2 years ago

Mine certainly doesn't do that. That is strange because it is tripping the sensor for locks. Has it always done this on Lick It Up?

Actually, there are 2 switches...a vertical up kick (mechanical) and demon entrance (optical). One must not be working.

#3140 2 years ago

Thinking about this a little more. The vertical up kick switch is probably working because that should be checking the "lock" position of the ball before firing it up with the coil. The optical is probably the one used to satisfy the shot. Tee up the situation with Lick It Up and slide something in to the demon entrance to block the light and see if the optical is getting tripped. Then check the connections going to the optical sensor.

That makes sense - thanks.

I didn't even know there is an optical sensor near the entrance.

Will have a look later and hopefully don't need to take the head area apart as it looks complicated!

#3142 2 years ago

I'm still hoping they release the update to kiss even though I no longer have the machine. I honestly miss it, the art was fantastic. A little code and it's going to be a masterpiece.

Mine stopped working last week (demon entrance). Turns out the ball guide on the left had cut through the opto wire on that side. Added some protection there and a quick solder and all is well again.

You do have to take Gene off to get at it. Not that hard, just keep track off what comes off.

#3144 2 years ago

I was able to pick up a HUO pro for low 4's and I am very happy with the purchase. I wanted a LE or Premium, but honestly it just doesn't make sense with this game. If one local goes up for sale in the low 6's I will probably upgrade, but for now, given what I paid, I have no anger/hatred toward Stern on the code.

#3145 2 years ago
Quoted from fattdirk:

Agreed, Kiss just needs some of the bugs fixed and if the cities can do more than just a call out the perception of this game will quickly change. My favorite Stern, this game is so much fun! I can't wait for the new code drop.

#3146 2 years ago

I just picked up a KISS LE last week and I'm loving it! I'm an average player so it will take me awhile to see all the code that's currently there. I guess I'm different from most of the people on here. I usually fire up a pin, put 3 or 4 games on it, then turn it off and don't play it again for a few days. For the people that want epic quest type of games, they have WOZ for that. And while I think it's cool that they make this type of game for the people who love that, I personally hate WOZ! Maybe eventually I'll get to the point where I see the limitations in the code, but until them I'm fat, dumb and happy playing my KISS!

#3147 2 years ago
Quoted from BudManPinFan:

If you got a LE while prices are depressed, that's not dumb. I highly recommend it.

I had the same issue, it turned out to be a broken wire on the optical sensor.

https://pinside.com/pinball/forum/topic/kiss-armyno-regrets/page/9#post-3637981

I also had trouble with the opto in Genes head, firstly there was bent wire by the opto which was broken inside, which made the opto intermittent ... cut it back and resoldered that ... then a few weeks later it played up again. Tracked it to a faulty molex connector where the optos plug in. Tweaked that and it's been fine since.

I also had an issue with the VUK switch ... took it out, reset the switch location and away she went again.
