Time to start up the "Where's the Code" Movement Again

2 months later
#405 2 years ago
Quoted from vid1900:

It's a big update with a few surprises thrown in for good measure.

This is good to hear. Hope it's a Grand Slam.

#491 2 years ago
Quoted from Barakawins1:

Kiss code is dropping this Friday.. Just in time for the weekend... Yeah!!!

#504 2 years ago
Quoted from Whysnow:

I was told KISS code in 21 days or under when I was at TPF last Friday. That would put it just in time for MGC on April 8th.

That's awesome news! Kiss needs some code!

#629 2 years ago

Sweet if that is the case.

#637 2 years ago
Quoted from Cloud9:

I hope "Black Diamond" is removed (or at least edited to dump that long, boring intro). Kiss had another 10 super iconic hit songs that should've been used before that B-side, throw-away track.

I hope they keep it and add more songs!

#679 2 years ago

How is the code broken or do you mean lack there of

#708 2 years ago
Quoted from LOTR_breath:

The Kiss code is worse than I thought. If you put it in tournament mode, Love Gun can be lit at the right ramp, but the MB cannot be started! We scrambled at the beginning of tourney thinking we had a malfunction, but it was the code!

I put all my games in tournament mode and never had a problem starting love gun from the right ramp...ever!

#716 2 years ago
Quoted from vireland:

Playmeter has it as #8. Who has it at #2?

Maybe the game is getting stale because of code. Time for an update.

#718 2 years ago

Coinbox pinball podcast earning report March 12

1. Game of Thrones 26%
2. Walking Dead 12%
3. Family Guy 11%
4. Star Trek 11%
5 WOZ 9%
6 South Park 8%
7 Elvis 7%
8 Kiss 6% (Needs Code)
9 Hook 6%
10 EBD 5%

I guess the players do know something is wrong.

#724 2 years ago
Quoted from vid1900:

It's not like Lonnie stopped coding and went to work in the art department for 3 days.

#725 2 years ago
Quoted from vireland:

Ah! Not familiar with that podcast, but seeing Hook, EBD, and Elvis on a top 10 was a headscratcher! Thanks for the explanation.

Yeah it's the report from one location. With Elvis , Family Guy & South Park bringing in more play than Kiss it seems unusual. They even stated on the podcast they were shocked and mentioned players were upset about code (speculation).

#732 2 years ago

I'm going to complain that you both know more than we do.

#734 2 years ago
Quoted from vid1900:

Operators don't want to install updates every few months. 12-20 KISS games on route at 30 minutes each to update code, pricing, number of balls, difficulty, message = many hours of work.
Pinball is already the lowest earning game compared to Keygames, Barbercut or Galaga Assault .....

So your saying the games should have full code at release.

#777 2 years ago

I'm sick of the game's only chick's play. "It's coming".
Just release the damn code.


#856 2 years ago

Don't be disappointed if the code isn't out this week.

#858 2 years ago
Quoted from TheLaw:

Can they still post everyday like it is going to show up though?

Did they specifically say it was coming out tomorrow?

#1011 2 years ago
Quoted from fattdirk:

They're just hyping to the point of anger. It's going to really suck when the update is utter garbage. I have very low expectations at this point. Trolling your own customers isn't fk'n cool. Whatever happened to under promise over deliver. This is like the facebook dude has no fk'n clue what's going on. I didn't mind waiting but the trolling is really pissing me off.

I think it is going to be big. Why else draw attention to it?
I don't remember thus with Avengers or WWE when nig was released.

#1095 2 years ago

Your behind on ackledgement that WWE and Avengers got code updates.

KISS code will come. I don't like the constant "it's coming" stuff and nothing gets released either, but at least they are informing us it is coming and I know it will be released soon.

#1258 2 years ago

This could be the longest April Fool's joke ever.

#1261 2 years ago

New code will be like this?


#1319 2 years ago

Guys, they are fixing the code. Would you rather have buggy crap and not be able to play the game?

#1329 2 years ago
Quoted from Trekkie1978:

Then why 2 weeks of nonstop teasing for a code that wasn't ready?

Miscommunication between marketing and software
Hype to get you excited and then someone noticed bugs and say it couldn't be released
A month long April Fools Joke

I'm sure if they released buggy code, it would be all over pinside about how they suck (of wait it already is).
Would you rather have the new code and find out it was causing problems and you couldn't play? I don't think you would.

#1364 2 years ago
Quoted from Trekkie1978:

What's tomorrow's tease gonna be?
I'm guessing a picture of Gene putting on his makeup with the caption saying "get ready."
With no code being released.

"Business as Usual"


#1371 2 years ago
Quoted from jeffsarcade:

If you live in the US, Orkin is one of the best known pest control companies who have commercials centered around the "Orkin Man" taking care of any insect infestations in your house.

They're on it!


#1374 2 years ago
Quoted from Trekkie1978:

I just hope the next KISS related post from Stern is "Game code 1.2 is now live!"
No more teases. Just the release.

Could be 1.21 with the bud fixes.

#1385 2 years ago
Quoted from Trekkie1978:

Am I the only one who thinks today won't be the day?

Quoted from jeffsarcade:

I don't see it coming out until late in the week.

My guess, before the end of the month.

#1387 2 years ago
Quoted from Trekkie1978:

This month? Or like July?

Damn you caught me.

Thinking this month.

#1393 2 years ago

Pretty quite on Stern's FB page today.

#1435 2 years ago
Quoted from musketd:

Could today be the day?

Any day could be the day

#1447 2 years ago
Quoted from Trekkie1978:

How long does it take to program bugs out of the code?
Note: My ability to code consists of hitting the download button.

I would think they would want to extensive testing. You know people (on pinside) will certainly be bitching if there is one flaw found.

#1449 2 years ago
Quoted from epotech:

maybe so but they could appease everyone by releasing a changelog. this would stave off having to release the code and also help with sales.

I'm putting myself in Stern's shoes.

No one will be happy until the code is released.

#1470 2 years ago
Quoted from musketd:

Um its actually way better for you then alcohol anyway; which just poisons your body and does not help fight against cancer and other illnesses

I actually don't need either.

#1471 2 years ago
Quoted from Whysnow:

may want to go read some of the more recent research coming out...
Lots of promising things with MMJ and a whole host of things it can help with medically.

I'm all for someone in pain taking it for health reasons but for recreational use not so much.

I don't care if anyone does use it in the their homes either, I just don't want it around me.

#1477 2 years ago
Quoted from hank527:

MJ may be the only thing that makes current KISS code playable anymore.

#1484 2 years ago
Quoted from DrJoe:

Would someone be so kind as to start a new "KISS code is released" thread once the code drops. Not so interested in reading through the 100+ posts of banter everyday, 1/4 of which is from the same person.

I'm sure there will be plenty of them when released.

I know how you feel.

#1491 2 years ago

All this talk about pot made me think Stern needs to make this pin. Then everyone will be happy.


#1508 2 years ago
Quoted from Msch:

Does it make a lot of noise or ??

Yeah, it giggles.

What the hell do you mean by noise?

#1521 2 years ago
Quoted from foureyedcharlie:

....but there is still weed.

Does the current code play better on weed?

#1551 2 years ago
Quoted from Duff:

Steer clear of breweries and disc golf courses..

Thanks for the tip.

#1616 2 years ago
Quoted from Pinfactory2000:

Anyone with a PRE/LE having issues with the love gun magnet not 'dropping off' the ball? Mine takes the ball, brings it to the drop spot and then brings it back to the right top of ramp without actually dropping it off...
Does it every time...Makes the game unplayable...

I haven't had an issue with mine

#1761 2 years ago
Quoted from Wakky:

Glad i got the pro model as it does not have the ball lock issues experienced in the other models

They really need a test coded into the diagnostics for the head.

#1764 2 years ago
Quoted from vireland:

It would not be nearly so confusing if they hadn't reversed the adjustments for the head kickers. That's the core of most of the head-related problems, IMO. People aren't adjusting what they think they are.

I was thinking more for ball locks as well. If you have tried to diagnose this in switch test, it is annoying as hell.

Quoted from Rascal_H:

Is that pic for real? Source?


#1798 2 years ago

They completed Avengers after 3 years. I'm sure they are still working on Kiss code support.

1 week later
#1850 2 years ago

I think Stern will make the code better. The last update was a big improvement but the game still needs some polish.

#1852 2 years ago
Quoted from vireland:

Not to mention lots of bugs to fix.

Yep. They still need to fix some bugs on Star Trek as well

Codes dropping soon...
Just heard

From who Wakky Tabbacky.

Quoted from Wakky:

Are you as ugly as your avatar lol

Unfortunately worse. ☹️️

#1965 2 years ago
Quoted from Rarehero:

WOF was a "different era" and the main reason it wasn't finished is because it was Keith's game and he's no longer at Stern. I think what Stern did with Avengers - finishing an out of production game years later - shows that people shouldn't worry about Kiss. You'll need patience....but I doubt it will be left for dead like WOF.

But it's not like they couldn't have put another programmer on the game to finish WOF. It was just abandoned. I honestly like WOF. The layout is great. There is nothing like it out there.

#1984 2 years ago
Quoted from Trekkie1978:

I'm shocked there wasn't a code update for this at expo.

I was shocked Batman 66 wasn't flippable at Expo.

3 weeks later
#2041 2 years ago
Quoted from hank527:

No way Lyman is on code as BM66 is all him. Kiss is getting left behind

BM66 will get some code and then everyone will be complaining it needs more. Endless cycle with each game. Rinse. Repeat.

Quoted from Cobray:

This just in- Stern is raising prices! But they could care less about code! Now you can pay even more to have your shallow-coded pinball machine! Better buy that LE at launch, they are going to sell out fast!!

Yeah it's BS. Plus people have cracked clearcoats and ghosting on their GB playfields and they won't fix it. So yeah.

#2245 2 years ago
Quoted from Minneapolispin:

If you happened to catch the recent John's Arcade video of the Stern factory tour, Jody D. talks about a big KISS code update in the works. It's a long video and I can't recall when the topic comes up. It's fairly early on when the guys are all standing in front of the playable games on the factory floor. Listen when they are standing there talking about the KISS machine.

#2251 2 years ago
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.

#2272 2 years ago
Quoted from Wakky:

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? ?

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

#2688 1 year ago
Quoted from Trekkie1978:

KISS is like chopping wood.
People say that about Transformers, but there are clear objectives in Transformers. KISS is all about points. I could've saved 5k and just bought an EM.

Kiss is light years ahead of Transformers.

WWE needs an update worse than Kiss. Lots of scoring bugs

I can't comment about Aerosmith or Batman66 because I have never played them and don't plan to order one until the code is flushed out.

#3481 1 year ago

I like the new update in regards to carryover of instruments making it easier to light the grid. I really think this game continues to get better over the last 2 code updates ( I know others will disagree with me). I love the Demon MB locks for scoring and the 2x,3x, etc scoring for songs that were updated previously.

Would like to see the big inserts for the character symbols do something currently they only light in test.
The Prem/LE really needs a ball test for the gene head ball lock optos and mechanisms that launch the ball into the head IMHO for proper testing. With the last update The ball doesn't seem to struggle getting kicked into the head like it did previously even after making power adjustments. This has made me extremely happy.

Quoted from RobKnapp:

I am looking at a KISS LE . The current owner said that v1.28 was installed and that he did not update to 1.3 because he read that the bugs were worse than in 1.3 . I have no clue . What is the best code for KISS LE ??? I read 1.3 and it seems as if that is the better code . But as in STERN SW latest code .92 that messed up the SWLE I want to check in with KISS LE owners . Thanks

I have had no issues and own a LE

Stern of the Union tomorrow? Wonder if Kiss code will even be mentioned.
