Wow, this is awesome. Led Zeppelin is one of my favorite bands of all times. Can't wait to hear the music incorporated!

Looking great - and making good progress now!

Led Zeppelin made its competition debut today!

It had 9x 4 player games played on it, all as single player games - so 36 single player games of 5 ball action.

The game was great, I had to tweak the coin door plug at one stage, and at the end of the day the 10,000 reel was a little sticky when resetting. But otherwise, passed with flying colours!

Here’s a picture of Jeremy playing it - you might remember he helped me with making the illustrator files of the playfield back in the start.

That was a cool interview Dave

#408 32 days ago
Quoted from rotordave:

Funny yesterday ... I have been fine tuning the LZ for its competition debut next weekend.
I was trying to figure out why the 1000pt spinner light wouldn’t light up. You’d get the bonus wheel around to LIGHT SPINNER, hit the scoop and the 100pt lamp would light, and you’d get 100 a spin. But I thought that the next time you did that, the light would progress to 1000 points. Mucked around with it for ages trying to sort how how it all worked.
Finally - a web search discovered an old Pinside thread - where it said that if you are on 5 ball settings, you can only get 100 a spin ... and if you are on 3 ball settings, you get the 1000 a spin! You can’t have both.
So that mystery was solved!
Next mission is to track down why the backbox GI fuse is blowing randomly. One of the sockets must be dodgy, just have to work out which one ...

I was wondering that on my Freedom as well. Thanks for clearing that up. Btw. That is one freaking awesome pin!

Top pinball player and nice guy from Pittsburgh, Cryss Stephens, grabbed something prints from bradalbright and had them framed up.

They look stunning!

Awesome to see this project spreading the pinball love around the planet.

Boooooom!!

Led Zeppelin plays music!

My concept works as planned - and Jeremy (general genius around town) built up the circuit ...

A little bit more fine tuning and (hopefully) we will be rockin out!!

Watch it before YouTube flags it. Lol

Will you be purchasing the Stern version when it comes out next year ?

Probably not at today’s prices.

Bet you a case of beer that the Stern LZ is a rethemed Beatles!!!

Or worse yet a rethemed Ted Nugent.

Rethemed Quicksilver is the talk ...

Even Stern are jumping on board the classic Stern hype train!

That’d be slightly disappointing...I hope they stick with a new layout

When they do the Bee Gees which seems inevitable, it would only be fitting to retheme a Stern Disco.

or CGC can remake Disco Fever.

Banana flippers and all.

Fun game, actually ...

Looks like we really need to petition Stern to get this right.

It should certainly be the Bee Gees in their full blown later disco years, not their early boy band years. We all know how things turn out when pinside doesn't make enough noise.

Loving the music addition to this project!

#428 12 days ago

That is awesome! Watching extra close now because I just got a Beat Time that would one day love to play the Bootles! Super-cool

There’s a possibility that Jeremy/Me might offer this as a kit.

It would be sorta plug and play. Sorta. You’d still need to run wires from the player lamps.

I have kept it nice and simple - as I wanted to maintain the originality of the EM pin, and the chimes for the PF sounds. I didn’t want full sounds - if I did I would have made a modern pin.

This is what it does:
1/ plays a different song for each player (song repeats indefinitely)
2/ plays a sound byte at game over
3/ plays a sound byte at TILT (cue Dave saying “WHAT THE F**K ARE YOU DOING??”

You can change all the songs/sounds on the Mini SD card.

Any interest?

Anyway - let’s get it cranking first, and go from there.

Yep, very interested. Waiting and watching!

Quicksilver is one of the best Classic Sterns, it'll 100% be re-made at some point, LZ is as good a theme as any.

If anyone here is attending Houston Arcade & Pinball Expo this weekend, come say hi! I’ll be there in my booth of OldSchool 3D poster art with red/blue glasses, and will have a very small handful of playfield and backglass prints to take a gander at. Let’s hang out!
