Time to start up the "Where's the Code" Movement Again
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!
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).
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.
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.
Quoted from flashinstinct:
Stern's already been served
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.
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.
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.
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.
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
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 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.
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.
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.

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? ?
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.
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
