Why the HDMI out? Is it for displaying the screen on a bigger tv? Can see it being useful for comps. Not so much use in a home environment but I guess they are pennies to add to the build cost. Bit of a surprise though give sterns determination to cut costs at all times.
They said in the stream that the loop opto was not working or disconnected.Upper playfield as I suspected is pretty pointless. Could have at least added an opto or spinner to count loops etc. looks great though and I'd have one if i hadn't already spent 15 large this year on pins...
They had to disconnect and sounded disappointed as it affected game-lay in some wayUpper playfield as I suspected is pretty pointless. Could have at least added an opto or spinner to count loops etc. looks great though and I'd have one if i hadn't already spent 15 large this year on pins...
I'm getting old and cranky, nowhere near as positive about what I saw than everyone else seems to be.
I'm not into rock/metal but have grown to like some after playing AC/DC, Metallica and IMDN , however I found the music on the stream quite annoying after only a short while.
The main toy is impressive but didn't affect the ball as much as I thought it would, it mainly just acted as a blocking device. I'm sure it probably would hammer the ball back at you at times though, I just didn't see these interactions on the stream.
Pro has just one ramp with 2 vuks also dropping onto it returning everything to the right flipper, better flow than the LE though which only had the orbits for flow.
Not enough on the upper playfield, at least on 2k you had 2 sets of rollovers to try to complete when you missed the lock or loops didn't complete, just sod all up there now. Upper playfield lock mechanism is cool and a clever, simple design.
Animations were awesome ( for a pinball machine )
Looking forward to playing one but have talked myself out of joining the line to buy one.
