    Then we'll have to agree to disagree. Like I said, that outer layer of ply is extremely hard and takes forever to sand with just a DA. I've used the belt sander on somewhere near 100 playfields and have never had an issue. You'll get the job done with just a DA, but it'll take you a hell of a lot longer. Maple is very hard. Old maple is like a rock. Pinball is hard... :-)

    What about a non remake pin ? LTG : ) Well pinball is hard #1 :kidding: Dobn't really think it makes financial sense does it? You have a few games that are "guaranteed" (likely anyway) to make good sales...don't know if it's worth it to rock the boat.

    Rosh, you are the best man. Thanks. Obviously I was joking about not keeping up, although as more people buy Houdini . . . The reality is after I forwarded a couple of items to Barry over the weekend, he got a pinside account so that he could get the info direct. everybody says pinball is hard! Pinball is hard. Listening and honest communication thats a little easier. Although to be on pinside, you also need to have a pretty thick skin.

    I think you all have seen that overall there have been few issues and that is a result of Jim and Joe reviewing and adjusting every machine before they go into the box. Think it's near impossible to build on mass with no issues , that being said ... The quick build time, and the almost instantaneous addressing of even the smallest of issues... Gives AP a lot of credit for their accomplishment! Pinball is hard , however communication between customer and manufacturer in this case is beyond reproach!

    There’s nothing stopping you from doing all these things yourself - the used P3-ROC boards and run SkeletonGame. All open source products and you could drop in your replacement code very easily. The thing is, pinball is hard. I’m not sure you appreciate how difficult a task you’re asking for here - that’s like half a year’s development work for some features that very few people want. If you really want it, go for it - the platform is totally open although the original code isn’t.

    It's incredibly rewarding to get designer approval When I think of designers I think of Ritchie, Nordman, Gomez, and some other heroes... I'm just a dude doing the best he can (and still have a lot to prove in that regard). But thanks! In my brain, this is more like what I wanted the game to have... sadly, we don't always get everything we want in the final product. Pinball is hard! But this is one cool mod to say the least, so credit where due. :-)

    ALIEN PINBALL - Game Over, Man, Game Over Post #18211 in topic

    Posted 18 months ago by frolic – in Heighway Pinball ‐ Last reply 3 days ago

    Likely a combination of "making pinball is hard" and the run on the bank for refunds was far more than they expected. As stated earlier, the company Andrew was running was over, and everyone would have lost, had these guys not stepped in. So all we can do is hope for the best and they pull through this difficult time. At least Alien is a game people can get excited about and has the potential to sell.

    Eric - can't wait for you to play your game... And everyone listen to this : Eric bought a CE and wanted the unboxing to be so special he purposefully avoided seeing a DI in person or playing one until he gets his own game. Either that or his wife won't let him go to pinball shows... take your pick... : )~ Ok so I'm a little crazy! Did the same with WOZ and Hobbit :) In my area pinball is hard to find...and Remember the wife thinks this pin was $9500 wink wink!!!
