Played it today at Pinball Heaven HQ.

Nice to have finished v1+ software in a game when released. The screen animation is absolutely amazing. Love the artwork on the pro as well.

Also Pinball Info member Marc Silk doing the naration on the game - now that is pretty cool too.

In my mind (for what it is worth) - the best stern for years.

If you are in Birmingham tomorrow - Tilt is having a launch evening with Pizza courtesy of Mr @philpalmer .

Great to know you enjoyed a blast on TMNT Phil. I’ve loved working with the Stern Team performing character voices for this classic!!! Nice job getting the exclusive Pinball Heaven UK first play!! 🎉🎉 🐢🍕

So had TMNT 3 days... Here are some of my thoughts

Off-topic but the machine seems really fast in terms on booting up, bonus and general gameplay animations and computering

Artwork by Zombie Yeti is pure class, really nailed it in my eyes... It is the TMNT I grew up with and love

Sound and animations... Stern is really advancing and they are brilliant

The layout is fast and furious, really loving games like TMNT and JP are utilizing orbits, ramps and being creative with gameplay over toys that look good but don't really add anything

Wasn't overly sold on coding, but its really growing on me now as I'm learning what's what... There are more depths to the rule sets then meets the eye 😂

The only thing I don't like is the scoring needs some balancing

Overall its a win for me

new code

LE/PREMIUM V1.11 - August 4, 2020
=================================
Fixed:
- Fixed some issues where the display was causing the game to hang.
- Corrected spelling of Marshmallows in Instant Info and Ninja Pizza Multiball
messages
- Fixed misspelling of BEBOP on episode introduction display.
- Ninja Pizza Multiball Ball Save timer was not being set correctly for
install HARD and EXTRA-HARD.
- Final Battle Ready had all turtle shots flashing instead of the left ramp.
This has been corrected.
- Fixed an issue during regular gameplay, if the final episode is complete and
Final Battle Ready is displayed, the ball will not eject if the Pizza
Parlor or Lair is the final shot.
- Fixed an issue where the pizza toppings would not get reset correctly in the
2nd plus games.

New:
- Added display effect for Extra ball is lit.
- Added lamp effect for starting Bebop or Rocksteady hurry-up in Final Battle
Phase 2
- Add Turtle Selection to Final Battle Challenge. Each Turtle will give a
different perk for the challenge mode:
- LEONARDO - 2X BEBOP AND ROCKSTEADY AWARDS
- DONATELLO - 3X FOOT AWARDS
- RAPHAEL - EXTRA DAMAGE TO BOSSES
- MICHELAGELO - LIGHT BATTLE AGAIN
- Added rotating flasher background lamp effect while you have 2X or higher
playfield multiplier running.
- Added adjustment to stop the Turtles from cycling at the start of the game.
- Its called ALLOW TURTLES TO CYCLE.
- Its a YES NO type adjustment
- It defaults to YES.
- This is added to DIRECTOR INSTALL and then defaults to NO.
- Added a timed ball save for Phase 2 of Final Battle.
It features different ball save durations based on "Final Battle
Difficulty" setting,

Tweaked:
- Increased the scores for spelling APRIL and LAIR.
- Fixed the monospacing of some score fonts.
- Removed pizza toppings from display when playing Final Battle Challenge
- Removed skill shot reminder speech during Final Battle Challenge
- Increased the max points for the Glider feature
- Changed Turtle Power Difficulty from a number to EASY/MEDIUM/HARD
EASY = 3 shots, MEDIUM = 4 shots, HARD = 5 shots
The number of required shots will increment by 1 each time Turtle Power
Multiball is played afterward.
- Install presets now change Final Battle Difficulty adjustment
- Final Battle Challenge adjustment was labelled incorrectly
- Adjusted the min and max the glider can travel.
- Adjusted the min and max the glider can be calibrated.
- Made it so if you pick LEO and you make your skill shot you will receive
your skill shot and you will start Training on that same shot.
- Added spinner flasher to the light sweeps in the game.
- Added left disc flasher to the game over lamp effect.
- Changed some of the text in Instant Info.
- Changed Instant Info Pizza topping page to show one topping instead of the
current amount the player has.
- Changed Bonus held from holding the pre-multiplied amount to hold it all and
then adding it to the total for the next ball.

Good, great, average?

Up to 1.11 already and still adding features. No different to any other game then, just cynically decided to launch this one at 1.0 to imply code complete!
I think it’s a positive thing they are still working on the code. They cannot win either way.

A lot of the stuff in this update are things I’ve seen recommended or asked for on pinside.

Dwight is fairly active over on pinside in the turtles threads acknowledging posts reporting bugs and suggestions so he’s definitely taking it all on as feedback.

1.0 is feature complete isn’t it? So I say happy days if Dwight keeps tweaking and adding new stages to the games current modes, nice work Dwight.

NIB Size, anyone got a box they can measure please?

Hadfields just called, but its on 18.5 tonner, so cant get to the house and need to meet them up on the main road.

Hopefully will go in back of my Landy without deboxing in the road
They couldn't get a 12 tonner down my road. Me and the driver had to wheel a NIB through the town and down my road at 7am, not ideal!

Same story for me in the past, they either had to come back in a smaller van or I usually remind Phil and he sends Martin to deliver it. I imagine the larger trucks are going to struggle to get to most locations with the amount of parking on the roads. You can barely get a car down my street when cars/vans are parked on both sides.

What Landy have you got? I tried to get one in the back of my Defender 110 (with dog cage) and it wouldn’t fit.

Hopefully you are all sorted now!
