Quoted from vireland:

The easiest way to get the cities into the game with the least amount of trouble is to assign a "groupie" or "STD" to each city that modifies the game a little (longer ball save, timed multiplier, spot starchild letters, mystery perk/bummer, etc). Hopefully they considered that.

Sort of like the paths in SW?

Very simple but yes, this would be a great idea.

Maybe reduce the number of cities to around 8.

Even simpler each city gives a note or two for each song.

Every city then has a purpose, without massively altering the game.

Maybe they can add the song Rocket Ride for the groupies, although I’m sure that’s not one of the re-recorded ones.

I think they only licensed music from that one sort of "greatest hits" album and can't/won't get anything else.

This! The only songs left off "Jigoku Retsuden" Stern could use are I Was Made For Lovin' You, Christine Sixteen, Forever and Do You Love Me.

Does anyone know if it normal for this board to make a kind of background interference sound?

When game on and left on, it just makes a similar sound to speaker interference?

Unplugged all the connectors and re-seated - no difference.

Or is this just another thing to accept with Spike boards?

Thanks

You pick up the STDs or groupies in each city, but if you get a bad STD Gene's mouth just keeps dribbling balls and will not lock.

You mean like speaker static? I don't recall hearing that on any Spike game.

#4058 1 year ago
Quoted from vireland:

Similar. Like interference on a radio station.

I unplugged front speakers and dmd so it's not them.

It's intermittent so sometimes it's not there.

But it does come from the CPU board.

Maybe a cable needs shielding in some way?

But you hear it even with the speakers unplugged?

Are you in an older house with this? Do you have all the ground braid making good connection in the machine and backbox and plugged in to a 3 prong grounded outlet?

It's kind of like feedback? Sounds like when you try to tune into a radio station.

Speakers were unplugged. It is intermittent. Plug is fine.

Ground braid - the silver stuff? All factory but can check it.

Put flipper fidelity in.

Didn't disconnect base speaker inside cabinet though.

Thanks

#4061 1 year ago

Was it making this noise before you installed FF speakers? I have them in my KISS and no issues with static etc.

#4062 1 year ago

Ok, narrowed it down a lot. Tough to do on intermittent faults!

The noise is actually coming from here.

And the fan is not moving or on when it does this.

Some type of electrical feedback/interference?

Maybe the unit is faulty?

Do they sell versions of these that have silent fans? If I have to swop may as well get a better one!

#4064 1 year ago

Great thread as it also shows me how to completely remove the power unit.

However this fault occurs when the fan is off.

There must be some kind of weird feedback occurring in the unit?

Not sure if it's worth removing it and looking inside?

I don't have any experience with the 230V mode of that power supply, so I really don't know what could be causing the sound. Here in the US you can get a new one of these Meanwell RSP-500-48 power supplies for about 80 bucks. But if that's not an option, do you have another Stern spike you can try the power supply from and see if it quiets the problem?

Not sure if Spike 2 games are same but will look.

I did take the casing apart and left it on a few hours and there was no noise.

Co-incidence? Or maybe some kind of electrical interference with casing on. Think I will just have to live with it!

“Thanksgiving” & “substantial”. Finallly..... let’s cross our fingers that the finished game rocks.

Yeah, I’m curious where you heard those words mentioned?

#4070 1 year ago

Gomez said 'your KISS update is around the corner, your going to get your long awaited KISS update with all your stuff '.

I like the words 'all your stuff'.

#4071 1 year ago

What’s the over/under on days before this thread goes from “where is KISS code” to “this code sucks” thread afterits released?

Quoted from Blitzburgh99:

The code doesn’t suck as it stands today, it’s just not up to the standards of their better coded games. If the code update ends up being lackluster I’ll be disappointed, but I’ll still enjoy playing it.

Basically verifying groupie/STD modes. Dream come true!

Halloween update bump!!!!!!

#4076 1 year ago
Quoted from jorge5240:

Halloween update bump!!!!!!

I just got my tickets for the upcoming KISS show in Detroit on March 13th. I'd also like to add KISS to my line-up someday. Come on Stern!

It is actually a really fun game as is. One of my favorites but hopefully the update will complete what is already pretty good in my mind.

#4078 1 year ago

This should be my last batch for a while, don't let this happen to your PREM/LE. Half off protector when you get the back glass lighted Target MOD. See below for descriptions.

Think an update is more likely Thanksgiving.

Or Xmas.

Having waited this long, I don't mind as they are working on it now, so make it a biggie please guys

Well, if they delayed the release (from early summer to potentially half a year later) becasue the update is 'a biggie' then fine. I mean, ridiculous but fine...

But if the update is just a tweak then this thing will be leaving the arcade (replaced by a non stern) faster than a newly waxed PF.

#4084 1 year ago

last state of the union stated they are testing the code. wow. i hope its true. Great game gets a bad rap.

#4085 1 year ago

Its REALLY close now!

#4086 1 year ago

New dots, cities should now do something. Cleaned up code and fleshed our better. Can’t wait ! Another couple weeks.

#4087 1 year ago

Is someone working on color DMD for this game it needs it !

It will be kind of incredible if cities end up doing something!

#4089 1 year ago

And for crying out out loud can we PLEASE get this call out either when you start a game or the start of a multiball perhaps...

“You wanted the best. You got the the best. The hottest band is the world! Kiss!!!”

That has to be in the game....no brainer on that one.

#4090 1 year ago
Quoted from mnpinball:

I was told that it will not be done because Stern owns the live footage that's on the DMD.
They would have to make it available to whomever does the color.

#4091 1 year ago

That would suck big time!

#4092 1 year ago
Quoted from foureyedcharlie:

That never stopped the other Stern games from getting done. All the images in Ghostbusters, AC/DC etc would not be done if that is the case.

I am confident it will get done but it will be a lot of work to figure out the best colors.

That would be a major downer if true.

KISS in COLOR would be a ton of fun

#4094 1 year ago

I am a few color DMDs behind for my games. But I love kiss and if it came out, it would move right to the top or close to it. I still need to get one for TWD, which looks amazing in color.

I hope your right MN pin! Sounds awesome, I agree with Pickle, Let's get " you wanted the best you got the best" somewhere in this classic game!

#4096 1 year ago

Great game as it stands. New/updated code would be the icing on the cake.

Hmm. Hard to be objective here because I grew up loving Kiss.
But these days I love pinball more - and this machine is already bordering on greatness.

It shoots so well, looks gorgeous and is challenging and great fun already. Could it use a little more depth? Hell, yeah!

And i’m guessing that’s coming very shortly..

Either way, she’s still not for sale

#4099 1 year ago

Maybe the wizard mode will be the Final Tour Ever?!

2019 - last chance to see KISS worldwide.

I'm cheering for you guys. I still put the over/under for GB into 2019, and that's what I'm interested in.
