Yet another lengthy delay.

http://pinballarcadefans.com/showthr...ll=1#post16736

So now they've got to fix that bug and go through the whole submission and approval process again. So at the *very* earliest, we're looking at September. And that's assuming Microsoft doesn't find another ridiculous bug that virtually nobody will ever stumble across to delay the entire process by another couple of months.

Reading further in the thread, allegedly the costs to resubmit the DLC is $40,000 every time they have to resubmit. This is their third resubmission, which means that this DLC has already cost them $120,000 that they may never be able to recover. And that could go up if Microsoft finds yet another obscure bug that they conveniently missed the first three times around like they did this one.

I'm beginning to believe those who think MS is doing this intentionally, hoping that TPA will abandon 360 support out of frustration and therefore no longer be a competitor to FX2.

There's no reason it would be for FX2 to sell more, it's not like that's a M$ made game. But they are being hella nitpicky and slow with alot of shit these days...prolly focusing on shoveling big name companies products through, or kinect stuff.

Just reading the update,
Quote:
This time it was for a single "bug"- if you download a new table to a memory card instead of your hard drive and then pull the card out of the 360 while attempting to load that table, the game becomes unresponsive.
Are people really that stupid?
Are they going to remove a memory card whilst it's still loading data?
Who even still has a memory card?
The slim doesn't even support memory cards.

Even people who have had Amigas wouldn't be so stupid as to remove the disk whilst it's attempting to load data.

I want my Funhouse table, and I want it as soon as possible. I also want Strikes and Spares.

The only people who might be affected by this bug are the delusionally stupid. No intelligent gamer is going to remove a storage device while the game is saving or loading.

That said, there are some delusionally stupid people out there who would get affected by this. Always remember that the answer to the question of "Are people really that stupid?" is always "Yes."

I'm assuming they mean flash drives. Could be wrong here, though. My son saves his profile and games to a flash drive because he plays on friends' x-boxes often and it's easier than repeatedly recovering your profile.

The more I think about it, the more I think they're just looking for corner cases to bring up, one at a time, hoping Farsight will drop 360 support for TPA either out of frustration or because they're running out of money (40k per resubmission is an awful lot of money).

The update for the PS3 version already went live a very long time ago, and yes, they have Bride of Pinbot. I found a list on Wiki which mentions what tables when:

First DLC:
Bride of Pinbot
Medieval Madness

Second DLC:
Cirquis Voltaire
FunHouse

Third DLC:
Gorgar
Monster Bash

Fourth DLC:
Black Knight
Creature from Black Lagoon

EDIT: There's a title update to roll out on Thursday this week, hopefully unlocking DLC packs #1 and #2. THE DELAY IS OVER! Follow them on Facebook, if you have one.

Pack 1 is out for 400 MSP. No sign of pack 2 yet, though it's supposed to be up today.

Heads up that even though the DLC is out, the achievements aren't on xbox.com yet so you may want to hold off on earning them.

Just one cheever per table for getting a high score...kinda lame. Lamer still is the fact M$ doesn't update the fucking site with them lately with most dlc coming out right away, making you have to re-earn them.

Bride of Pinbot is finally out. I couldn't care for any gold stars because Bride of Pinbot is finally out.

Now I just need some more MSP, I realised I won't have enough for them and the Summer of Arcade games, so next week I'll go for it.
