I have been patiently waiting. Time to start asking around. Who knows Lyman?

ACDC buyers where screaming for updates at this time. Lyman will deliver a great update again, Im sure.

#2 6 years ago

I'm pretty surprised it's been over a month without an update, and even longer since a substantial one. I'm going to guess we'll see an update this month, and it will contain the Crank It Up modes, as well as the band member modes. Anything less than that would be ridiculous if Lyman has been working on it full time this entire time.

#3 6 years ago

Xmas present POWERpack

#4 6 years ago

Agreed. We need an insider to weigh in.

#5 6 years ago

C'ant wait to see End of the Line,what kind of Wizard mode it will be,i am begging for
a Super hard fun one and nothing less!!!

The song End of the Line is amazing.
Lots of cool stuff Lyman can do with the Lightning!

Futur coding will include a sound for the Hammer ?

#6 6 years ago

I don't know nuffin about nuffin - but my guess: We'll see it before/by Expo for various reasons.

#7 6 years ago

Yes, I have heard rumors about it being released prior to Expo as well

#8 6 years ago

Personally I 'm waiting for new software for Metallica,X-men and Avengers,AC/DC is OK for me
With the new Star trek I hope Stern don't forget us

#9 6 years ago

I'm in no hurry for that update myself - it will happen soon enough. Just swapped out 5 of the songs for much better ones and am really enjoying them.

Next up - getting rid of the "Great Frikkin' Shot" callout by Lars...

I think we deserve an xmen update before a Metallica update. Just saying.

One has nothing to do with the other, regardless of what you think we "deserve".

How did you swap out songs.... Anxiously asks

Quoted from Shapeshifter:

Wow, cool but looks complicated

I agree, I tried looking at how to do this and my brain hurt. I am too afraid to screw something up which I am good at doing.

It's ok, just wait for someone to make a sweet custom one based off the newer code after it's released and use it

A code update is definitely coming and it's a BIG one with lots of changes and added modes. It will also help work more in sync with the newer magnet boards. Can't wait!

Timeframe = No Idea (but the sooner the better!)

p.s. Stern, if you're reading, the lack of code updates on Metallica, XMen, & others is 85% of the reason I passed on purchasing Start Trek. I had to start speaking with my wallet... Just sayin'

The hardest part is modifying the new songs to be the correct length. Changing them to mono and resampling at 24k only takes a couple of button clicks. With Metallica, I didn't need to do any dynamic range compression that some have done on other games to get the volumes to match. Luckily, I'm pretty versed at Sound Forge (a sound file editor) so it was fairly simple.

I'll wait until the next big update before I start messing with dots.

#19 6 years ago

Anyone have code with different songs I can download. Just want something new till the new update comes out. So bored with current code

Oh an Xmen and Advengers need updates. Xmen is actually a fun game. An update would make it much better as their are still several problems with current code.

#20 6 years ago

i aint changing nothing

i am waiting for codes...when battery mode
will start on the Dmd you will see Sparky get
beat up...fits with the song so i will see
in a few months but i would just love to put
in there All nightmare long song.

#21 6 years ago

The code's coming right before expo. It won't be the final update.

Can you change the Beast Quotes on XMen?

#23 6 years ago

Last update was August 2nd I believe...

#24 6 years ago

Im ok with the wait...its already a blast
hard to wait cause i see all the potential
in it.

Quoted from TomGWI:

Yes you can - just need some audio file to put in its place. But with Pinball Browser we can change anything!

Disabled the loop post? Like a new machine. Keeping me going till the next code.

#28 6 years ago

disabling the loop most almost takes the pop bumpers out of the game, I tried it, didnt like it, combos were easier though.

#29 6 years ago

Will put it back on with new code..then at least it's an easy setting to change..can flip it on and off with mood. I just think it's one of the easiest ways to change the whole feel of the machine..Like two machines in one.

Expo starts next wed oct 16th and goes until Sunday.

I remember waiting for ACDC. Seemed like forever and then BOOM awesome code update. Hopefully it will be released before or during expo.

#31 6 years ago

Around expo I heard or shortly thereafter.

I got a peak at the readme earlier:

- Added '250,000 points' to the mystery award table. That will teach you fuckers to bitch about getting 500,000 points.
- Implemented new ball lock state. If the magnet doesn't grab the ball when lock is lit, the magnet core stays under the playfield until the ball falls into the hole. The hammer fires constantly during this time.
- Added crank it up mode. The game volume automatically increases by 50% when crank it up is started.
- Band member modes implemented (thanks Lonnie!). To start, hit the pick targets 4 times. To finish, hit the pick targets 40 times.
- Deadpool implemented. (Suck it Xmen owners.) When you start deadpool mode he players annoying one-liners.
- Added laser light show - color changing LEDs now pulse through all possible colors 100% of the time.
- Added DMD animation during ball search to show The Hulk with a ball stuck under his arm. 'How I get here???'

Post of the day..or month...you win..

#38 6 years ago

Way to go Zucot! Freaking hilarious! I love your new implementation of the Hammer... premium/LE rocks now!!!

#39 6 years ago

I think he is half way not kidding. I hope the hammer and crank it up modes are in new code. Hulk line is funny.

#40 6 years ago

Not long now hopefully tomorrow

#41 6 years ago

Fatrain... me too! Lack of code updates on many Stern's games made me pull out of STLE as well.

#42 6 years ago

Tonight I got all 4 objectives lit to complete END OF THE LINE, but how do you get it? Is there a special shot after all those are lit or is that a piece of uncompleted code? Hopefully update before Saturday 4pm.

That and the LE price! Im going JJP Hobbit before Ill pay that for a Stern. At least I can use it as an IPOD player.

Lyman makes you wait, but when he does, he drops HUGE updates. As shown on ACDC, SM and Tron. Metallica has so much potential and it already plays great. (with New Magnet board)

End of line is missing from code still. If you go into settings on current code it shows 50 hears to each of the four shots. 50 grave marker drops. 50 sparky. 50 captive ball and 50 snake. That's a hell of a feat. Sparky and captive ball aren't too bad but 50 drop targets and 50 into snake are a bear. It's how the 4 main inserts are lit.

Oh, ok. I'll have to check that. I scores damn near 200 milllion, It was a helluva game!

I do hope we get an update soon.

In the meantime I like other Metallica songs too and I also like PMs!

The only thing Metallica is lacking is a better mystery. Other than that, a wizard mode. But did they really plan on a wizard mode?
