That’s it. When you open it up it’s called “sound recorder” and won’t close.

 

At least that’s how it is for me on PS4/5.  It might be fine for other versions.


That was OK for me on Switch.

So I’m getting tempted by this. I could get it on X, PS5, switch or steamdeck. Any standout versions? I’m tempted by switch for easy docking but worried about the performance. 


Handheld is so useful. Switch doesn’t run as well as the others but it’s still fine.

No performance issues here on the Switch. Lots of (mostly benign) bugs though - most of which have been fixed on PC now. Completed it this evening and none of them broke it for me.

Got to the point where cabinets are starting to cost 10k+. It's a bit of a grind with cabinets taking two days even with futzing the machine settings, but I'm getting there. I'm a bit concerned how long this will drag out, though - even after this wave of machines, I still haven't seen the lightgun game from the title screen.

 

The table football game is a bit of a banger, though.

Unless you try and skip the goal replay, because that breaks the camera.

I think I'm getting around 7k a day at the moment, although that's skewed by leaving the second I either finish all the tasks in the to-do list or it's a load of bobbins. In reality, it's probably 10k if I really catch onto something.

 

Or play a round of pool and spend an entire in-game day malding over the physics.

 

I forgot to mention - the golf game is also great.

I'm playing on the Switch and I think I have missed something.  Is there a way to transfer funds to the auction site that I am missing?  Everything time I try to buy something, it just tells me I have insufficient funds.  No problem with buying arcade cabinets though.

The auction site uses different money, pounds not dollars which you earn through doing they daily 3 To Do tasks.

Thank you.  I'm away from home at the moment and playing handheld and missed the differences.

ANNOYING.

 

I'm starting to burn out on this. Some of the Goals on the games don't fire - I've 100% a song multiple times on the dance game and it won't give me that one, now Not-Bubble Bobble won't give me the "drop 13 bubbles at once" award - and I've switched it off and on again. I've just bought the Whack-a-gopher as the last arcade from that group and have an investment opportunity too now.

 

I've finally started giving up on washing - it seems to have strangely gotten busier now that I've shrunk it down! The arcades are pulling close to £6k a day though, so it doesn't really give me a boost any more.

 

I reckon I'll keep going until I hit the credits, but I think I'll be ready to be done then.

Some of the goals fire multiple times. Due to a bug, I ended up with more than £1,000 for the upgrade shop.

One bug i never got sadly. 

 

Current bugs for me are bugai won't work I start the game and it says game over and you can't play.  Have to restart and quit game to get it back.

 

Table football whatever you do, don't skip replay cos the camera angle fucks up. 

 

Jukebox just doesn't register any goals at all. 

 

Hope the first patch fixes these.

You mean not-Puzzle Bobble :)

 

But that's a bug fixed in the update.

Well, it's fixed the goals that wouldn't trigger. However, it's broken my laundrette - I'd saved and quite out before the patch hit, and had 3 machined washing and 3 machined drying. They now all still have the baskets by them, but no clothes in them, and they're not running a cycle.

 

Gonna see if I load over them today, but it's a bit shit to have ~20% of my revenue scuppered.

 

It also reset my emails to unread, and the emailed challenges are a bit broken ("hey you beat my 182! Try beating my 183!" Is a poor response to me getting well over 200 on Woodgirl Jr).

 

It's also weirdly made the hoppers even harder to highlight, which is frustrating.

 

I've got two expansions left to do. I did the investment but chat cut off quicker than it had previously too so I have no idea what happens there now.

 

Feels like I need to wrap this up before they patch more broken things in.

Have they fixed the bug where you can’t reach the washing machine behind the trolley? I got caught out a few times holding washing but being unable to load it in the only free washer. The only solution was to quit out of the game.

That's one of the things on the fix list, yes, so I'd expect so.

I'm glad you get a random selection of 'to do' tasks because one of them was to get 200 points on Woodgal Jr so I just turned the game off entirely. I think 16 is my best score, the game makes me panic too much to get on with.
