Oh wow. So for Paragon, he had to do 49 + 46 + 45 + 45 instances of the bonus count (2x, 3x, and 5x). That's 185 of them.

Black Knight isn't much worse, it's 49 x 5 instances for a total of 245.

Firepower is 29 + 28 + 24 + 20 + 16 because of adding bonus from multipliers. So that's 117 instances. A bit better for emulation.

Gorgar isn't needed, since it plays one sound per bonus tick. Easier time when ROM implementation gets in.

Firepower II: Hmmmm, I'll have to look. 99 + 97 + 89 + 81 from the lanes for a total of 366 times. More than 3 times as much as Firepower (at least there isn't a 4x around!)

That's a total of 913 separate instances. Across 4 tables. Dang.

EDIT: Recalculations, because bonus additions from multipliers on some games. Still though, that's a lot to do.

I'm not counting Xenon, because I'm not sure if he used instances on that table (probably not).

But if he did, that's 29 x 3 (2x and 4x), for 87 more.

But, Black Knight emulation! Dunno what Jared has to say (until I listen), but it's improved immeasurably, and that's with some pretty glaring bugs.

It doesn't help the Ghostbusters situation when Stern has a twitch streams and is asked about it, "ask farsight, we make real tables".

Yep, that is pretty poor messaging from Stern there.

Doesn't sound like Stern's being very supportive of FarSight either. I know I don't sound supportive of them on these boards either (despite buying every table sim they've put out thus far, w/SPA included) but I'm just a forum poster-this is a business partner of FarSight we're talking about here.

Not good IMO!
