Quoted from Asael:
They realised there is only one way to attack this game, that's starting MBs. There is no major goal or mini goal to work for.
I used to optimistically think that getting an update was a treat and it still is but now also think that releasing games with too many blaring omissions is not good.
Maybe pinball design in this hi-tech age means its now so much easier to design the layout than the code.
Take your time Sir Lyman. You're doing good kid. Please keep on it. It's such a lot of great work for one bloke and very very appreciated.
It's a real shame people are getting 'jaded', 'angry', 'upset'. I think this game has a great layout and is very cool but the rules should definitely be more advanced when the game is released, with just a tweak or two needed after it's been out for a while. It sounds like Lyman needs more help. Can't he just tell code-writers his ideas and they implement the code? I dunno, maybe it doesn't work like that but there's a huge backlog of different pins out there waiting to be 'finished' off, mostly by one guy by the sound of it. Come on Stern, sort it out, people are getting upset.

What comes first
This post getting to 2000 or code?
This post getting to 2500 or code?
This post getting to 3000 or code?
We should have a contest.
My vote is 2143 posts and then we get code. That should be about 2 more more weeks.
Will there be a prize for poster 2000?
I'll bet code will appear on post 2222.
Quoted from iceman44:
What Stern should do is get a half dozen college intern programming geniuses to help Lyman and just pay them in weed and munchies. What's the problem?
Pull a few all nighters and have it done over the weekend.
Sounds like a plan.
Quoted from Roostking:
I just wonder if some people arent playing because they code is not complete, yet they still suck at the game, or if they have mastered it and are bored.
Probably cause im a Metallica Pin fanboy, I still love it have have a blast everytime I play it. That or I dont have any other pins lol. Either way, I cant imagine just letting it sit, when its still such a great theme.
You've got a point.
I love playing it as it is because its a great theme and a great layout. More code = even more better!
Why not have some more updates during the years if people are up to it. Apps and programs get updated. Pins are not quite as easy to update buts if it's worthwhile doing then why not.
