it's terrible.

advertise machine(s) for sale, on a machine i purchased for my home. or, let people at a bar KNOW that they can now buy a pinball machine for their home. :P

at least, you should be able to turn the commercial off. standard adjustment, somewhere in the 50s...depends on the game.

DISPLAY MESSAGE OF THE DAY. change that to NO.

you're welcome.

Doyou reckon pre spike games are safe from this sort of update Mr? If so I will be relieved :)

And the commercials are tuuurible to boot.

Come on Stern. I think this could possibly be a harbinger.

i like data east advertising the next or previous game. the keyword is "game"...that added to the charm of the attract mode.

on every stern, i turn off "how to play", i turn off the knocker, i set the shaker to "Minimal", i turn off the "Press Lockdown Button to Start Game", and now, i will turn off the commercials.

i don't like commercials. :P

I updated IMDN but haven't noticed the commercial in attract mode yet, must be rare.
