Alien Code Update
Pinsider bcd shared a post last week that new BETA software is now available for Alien Pinball! Per his post:
“I am pleased to announce the release of ALIEN 1.3 BETA software!
This BETA release is a collection of bug fixes and minor additions that I have added to the game code on my own time after the production run ended. Pinball Brothers had NO involvement in the development or testing of these changes, and cannot provide you with support or warranty (and neither can I). After much discussion, they have agreed to let me release this to the public.
Use at your own risk. A few other people have been running this code too, without any issues as far as I am aware. But it has not seen widespread use. If you find issues with it, please let me know directly and post to this thread; however, I cannot promise that I can fix anything else at this point. I’ll do my best to answer any questions you might have.”
