    Stern recently renewed their Metallica license!

    Take a look at this video from a Youtuber called John's Arcade: 2017 Stern Pinball Factory Tour with John Trudeau. Advance the video to 26:00.

    So there's going to be a Hardwired Vault Edition* of Metallica? Now that would be cool.

    (As I will keep on saying, if you've ever been a fan of Metallica but drifted away, or are a fan of heavy metal in general, check out Hardwired. It's seriously good and probably the best work Metallica have done in 25+ years.)

    This bodes well for seeing Metallica in SPA.

    I was hoping they would announce Metallica during the Twitch stream last night. They did announce Big Buck Hunter, but that is no Metallica.





    Edited for spelling - Big not Bug.

    Did they announce Big Buck Hunter for reals or are they joking again? I can never tell...

    Anyways, I remember them saying they had a surprise for SPA coming very soon on yesterday's stream. Metallica perhaps? I'm pumped!

    More likely to be Whoa Nellie! But Metallica would be nice. Verrrry nice. Still jerked off that my local movie theater replaced it with Pirates Of The Caribbean.

    Well, Whoa Nellie has already been announced last year, so since it's a 'suprise' I'm already expecting a new, different table. Crossing my fingers.

    Typo or Freudian slip? I'm bad with a keyboard, but...

    And yes, they did actually announce Big Buck Hunter during the Twitch stream. They also mentioned Ghostbusters and Whoa Nellie, but we already knew about them.

    Do I understand this sentence correctly? He is happy about the replacement.

    btw, after long break i returned to Visual Pinball and installed newest VPX version with all addons and extras - and tried Metallica table...guys, i VERY recommend not to wait for SPA version - it will not be great anyway not in physics nor playfield accurate and we all know what it will not have such features as high score savings in ROM memory and etc.

    Have you played Star Trek on SPA? Looks pretty playfield accurate to me, even on Mobile.

    And mobile is the *worst* platform to play it on.

    So the VP coders have access to the CAD files, uncompressed WAV files, and game source code that Stern is letting FS use? I'm sure Gary Stern would like to learn how they got their hands on all that.

    Stop talking rubbish.

    Stop all the negative posts. I'm bored of it and I'm pretty sure I'm not alone.

    this ^ - yep beyond bored.
    name of the forum should be explanatory (fans)
    haters should stay on Facebook
    all for constructive criticism - think it helps and encourages the folks at farsight to keep making what we love even better.
    the overly negative posts and directly insulting the PEOPLE that work for farsight is crossing the line and is not in the spirit of what this forum is about.

    down with that sorta ting!

    edit- for me we are all fanatical pinball/tpa has brought together a diverse group of people from all cultures and walks of life, ive met some people i consider great personal friends as well as members and players. strong opinions are great and apart of any resonable discussion (ill never forever any of you for picking xenon over paragon....but im a patient man ..sometimes..*grumbles) but this negativity from a few names makes me think twice about even checking threads at times.

    ive had my run ins before as most of ya know, but im still for the product and whats left of our little community, i tend to bounce of posts..so when ****s negative its really something of a downer....dont make me get the pom poms out!

    I've been reading a lot of Mass Effect Andromeda threads recently. Farsight got nothing on Bioware.

    Yep agreed @DA5ID.

    I'm inclined to upgrade that offence to instant dismissal. But that is something the Mod team needs to agree upon.

    of course i played it in SPA too, and in SPA it is not only unworkable (game often crashes), but also missed some of it's features like lights, effects and all other things already discussed in bugs topic.
    and if you will continue to call any adequate criticism "negative" - dont be surprise what after next 3 years you will still look at same wrong texture wrapped coffin on MB and Firepower cabinet, as after last 3 years. just a fact.
    and argument: "this forums name is 'pinball arcade fans'" - is ..hmm.. strange - if here would be official forum of game/studio as every other professional developer do - of course a lot of people would be on it. i'm here only to criticise bugs and errors - because it is the only way to make product better - every professional quality manager/engineer will confirm that, just repeating in 100th time "thank you farsight!" in your post/podcast/youtube video - will not help reveal some defects of product.
    and if somebody already typing "but yaur nigatife critisizing-shmutisizing not helpz our pinballheads eithaarr and not fiks ze bugz!!!!!11" i will say: of course i cant take the keyboard from their hands and rewrite all code!! - it is their product which they sold to us under the promo "it is 100% authentic pinball simulator" repeating it in videos and on the game sites.
    btw funny fact: a lot of "true fans" here are rarely got even in top 10 on some TPA tables, or have atleast 80% wizard achievements - not because they are bad players - just because they play it not so often in fact.

    p.s.: if you hate so much when someone crash your crystal dream about perfect Farsight and their products - just left me posting rights for bugs topics like Master Issue lists - it is only thing i really have interest in use on this forum and you dont read them too, so everybody will be happy.

    VPinmame coders just made possible emulation of last official Stern ROMs which Stern post in available for public on their site.
    btw research about new VPX - you will experience a lot of good pinball with physics when flippers react when ball hit them and actual metal balls having real feel of weight, also saving of your personal records of tables like high scores and other table specifics in rom memory, and close to real scores - no more several hours long marathons!

    pushing for bug fixes is one thing but thank you for saving us poor mortals from ourselves!!!

    all hail the bugz findin masta!

    tell me how many bugs have you "discovered" that havent been beaten to death for years!

    you dismiss any and all opinion but your own, you wouldnt make a good beta tester anyhow. if all you want is a platform for your vitriol and spite look elsewhere.

    im done this dude obviously doesnt get it
