I have FT, AFM and WH2O; they're simply fantastic. I'll get RFM and and ToM as soon as RFM is released (save a bit with combined shipping)

I say make HS2 and BoP!

#502 3 years ago

Rick when is WH2O back in stock?

1 week later
#503 3 years ago

Any idea when RFM 3D will be available to purchase?

1 week later
#504 3 years ago

Sorry for the late reply, I had quite a bunch of other things to do ))

Prototypes are great, yet I need some more attention to details. So...

We're ready to ship to the US in week 11... should be installed in your machines 1-2 weeks later.

Prepare your give-away-costume-photoshoot for RFM I'll post the
link to the thread next week. Concentrate on the details, get creative and anyone with a photo of a tank and an RFM will win.... nah, just kidding have fun shooting the photos and enjoy yourselves playing, that's all that really matters

#505 3 years ago

Like to add Black Rose to request list.

#506 3 years ago

Is there a pre-order list for these?

#507 3 years ago
Quoted from Jean-Luc-Picard:

Got the Fish Tales today. Amazing: ordered, shipped and installed in 48hrs. As well, no defects or damages.
I will buy all of the below, I am sure owners of these titles will also
PLEASE MAKE:
- Doctor Who
- Williams: Indiana Jones
- Judge Dredd
- DE: Star Wars
- DE: Jurassic Park
- The Simpsons Pinball Party
- Johnny Mnemonic

Yes if the price is right, Jurassic Park would be awesome

Amy update on WH2O?

#509 3 years ago

I just received a WH20 from Ministry of Pinball (yes still in stock)
I'm not sure how I feel about it though. The top right corner is blurry as is the middle where the bear is attacking the rafter. Any lighting options that can help this at all?

Quoted from allsportdvd:

Yep, that's totally true. As a matter of fact, it can't be done otherwise in 3D. If it should be more in focus (no or less blur), it also had to be more in front, which renders the whole 3D idea useless. It's a compromise, but a cool one in my biased opinion

Even FishTales, the middle boat is blurry, yet one focuses on the big objects in front.

One of my employees came to me for quality control some 10 years ago. When I was a little picky about a minor detail, he replied: "If you don't look at it, you don't see it!" I was stunned, but I also knew what he meant.

I can assure you I'm listening to your input, and try my best to get the most 3D effect out of any motive, without rendering it so blurry, it just sucks... hehe, there was this WH2O prototype give away - and that proto was blurry like hell - though 100% correct regarding the 3D space.

Anyway, I hope you can still enjoy it nevertheless!

In the meantime, pinball dreams finished dissecting the bride... so next title is on its way

I'm sorry to say, that one entry is just so awesome, that there is no chance for others to win my prototype translite. Which could be a little frustrating for others, so....

Henrik will give away his too... Yep, you can still win! Go ahead, grab you camera and get crazy!

Good news everyone. RFM is in full production, and the batch will be finished in two weeks. Two weeks because they need to cure for a week+. After QC'ing each and every one, pinball dreams will ship them to the USA. So in 4 weeks you're ready to install them

Great news, gives us time to save for it.

#523 3 years ago

Order from PPS like the other 3D translites or do I order direct from Pinball Dreams?

#524 3 years ago

US and Canada PPS. Europe, pinball Dreams.

Hey, I saw these 3D translites at PHOF in LV. I needed a new translite for TOM anyway and after reading through some of these forums I decided to take the plunge. I ordered 3 (MM, TOM, and WH20), and was honestly most excited about WH20. I have to say I'm most impressed with TOM, MM looks good too. But WH20 is by far the one 1 question. Has anyone else has this experience? I'm wondering if brighter LEDs behind the translite would help?
Thx!!

#526 3 years ago
Quoted from TheBigDog:

Has anyone else has this experience?

Um, what experience?

#527 3 years ago

WH20 just doesn't seem to be on par with the others. Again, i am really impressed with the TOM and MM.
WH20 is lacking in clarity, much more blurry compared to the others.

#528 3 years ago

Curious, because I'm wondering if maybe something is wrong with the one I got. Or if someone else with the same experience might have tried different lights to help the focus.

#529 3 years ago
Quoted from TheBigDog:

WH20 is lacking in clarity, much more blurry compared to the others.

That was answered in a previous post by the maker. I can't find it right now.

#530 3 years ago

I just noticed that the bomb the jet is carrying says Gomez on it.

#531 3 years ago
Quoted from MustangPaul:

In the video I did, I'm totally zoom/pan in on that at the end

Regarding WH2O: yep, it is blurry but not more than the others. Blurry is kind of a requirement when doing lenticular. I tried to go extreme and realistically depth wise.

The other thing that plays a big role here is that the background makes up so much of the space. No title or logo (like in FishTales and even AFM) that would hide some of the blurry background. We really tried to get a version accepted by the IP holders that has the Whitewater logo across on top, but got rejected - simply too much change. That would have helped

Glad you enjoy them!

Oh yeah I forgot.

i notice a significant difference between WH20 and the other 2, so does my son. Perhaps something is wrong with the one I received?

Read the above post.

Nope, just too few obstacles... along with the getaway-hs2 one of the most delicate translites to make to balance depth vs. clarity.

But it would have look ridiculous sh*tty when the most distant objects like the mountains, water, etc were at the same depth as the rafts in front. You should have seen the one with the logo...

#536 3 years ago

We'll, I'm going to play with different lighting options behind the translite. I'll let you know if something helps.
Thanks!

#537 3 years ago

CPR just came out with a new HS2 mirrored backglass. Will a HS2 3D translite ever be made? If not, I'll get the bg.

#538 3 years ago

RFM 3D Translites were shipped from Germany today to us, so we will have them either tomorrow or expect Monday and they will be available then for purchase on the PPS store.

CFTBL please. Pretty please? I don't understand how the only repro translite available has full frontal nudity. I'm no prude but it's kind of gross. Didn't you guys announce a 3d one like 4 years ago?
