AC/DC Pinball Machine – Latest Videos, News, Photos, and Information

07 August 2014 – Stern Announces New & Improved AC/DC Pro Pinball Machine.

World’s Leading Arcade-Quality Pinball Maker Offers AC/DC Pro With Improved LED Lighting and Swinging Bell
MELROSE PARK, IL – August 5, 2014 – Stern Pinball, Inc., the world’s oldest and largest producer of arcade-quality pinball games, announced an upgraded AC/DC Pro model with all LED lighting and a newly designed swinging bell.
Originally released in early 2012, AC/DC and Stern Pinball have made history by creating a fan-favorite pinball game and an iconic pop culture classic.
The new AC/DC LED Pro features technological upgrades implemented by Stern in its current Pro models. In addition to the LEDs and the swinging bell, the new AC/DC LED Pro is manufactured with Stern’s updated modern metal and wood back box with a decaled cabinet and speaker housing. All the other great game features, art and music are unchanged from Stern’s earlier AD/DC Pro.
“With the AC/DC license expiring at the end of December 2014, we wanted to offer our operators and enthusiasts a great earning game with the enhanced features that we’ve recently developed,” said Gary Stern, Chairman and CEO of Stern Pinball.
Stern is planning a small immediate production run on this upgraded game so order while supplies last.
Pricing and Availability:
Pro Version: $5,595 (MSRP) (USD)

V1.63 – Jan. 18, 2013

– Added multiplied shots to “For Those About To Rock”.
– The bell shot is now part of combos via the left loop and the right ramp.
– Fixed an issue that would possibly corrupt the auto extra ball data.
– Added lamp effects for T.N.T. awards.
– Album multiball and tour multiball jackpot information now displayed outside of multiball.  This helps the player if they are trying to change songs to set up a song bonus.
– Added art and sounds for double/triple bonus.  Bonus intro now plays in the key of the song that was being played.  2x/3x stamp is either fire or lightning (instead of silent screen flip) based on what song was being played.
– Added speech for good bonuses.
– Added super jackpot speech.  Added big lamp effects for cannon target(s) hit.
– In an effort to keep two balls from jamming up in the cannon, the control gate that diverts the ball into the cannon will release the gate if a second ball arrives at the right ramp exit switch immediately after the gate was closed to divert the first ball.
– Encore “won” and “keep shooting” effects may no longer be aborted.
– Some sound test music was being cut off during sound test.  This has been corrected.
– Fixed an issue with the song intro loop music being trampled when the ball is loaded into the cannon quickly at the start of a new ball. Very noticeable on songs with lengthy intros, like “Back In Black” and “For Those About To Rock”.
– Added some lamp effects.
– All scores (system and game) are now stored as 64-bit.
– Fixed up the audits.  3-multiball super jackpot and all encore audits were not being displayed.  This has been corrected.
– Added audits for the top eject and cannon switches.  Triple multiball super jackpot is now always available (but will still reset when collected).
– Ramp targets now score like the other targets, where the value that is built up during the ball is reset at the start of a new ball.
– If the player does not fire the cannon (timeout), most cannon awards will not remain available.  They will have to be requalified.  This prevents certain exploits (i.e. firing the ball at the left loop to get +1 advance for Tour Multiball along with (usually) a note arrow during a song).
