Quoted from Nostaw:
My machine won't be ready until closer to December and waiting to see what more you may offer to just buy in one package. Love what I see soo far. Quick question, do you have a picture angle of the playfield view from a players stance (one you have is kind of off to the left from POV).
I love the crypt idea as I think it adds proper story guidance on that section, my only concern is if people are under 5'9-6 foot, does it block too much of the view of the Guillotine shot or Vamp Staking shot.
I'm getting this to play with my kids as my daughter's favorite game and just wanted to make sure the Blue Crypt did not block her or my view too much. Again sure you thought this through but would love a shot of what it looks like directly in front of the machine from a players angle.
Seems I only posted this photo in the Alice thread, but this shows the view I see and I'm 5' 9". Photo is of the prototype that was too glossy and has a different gate. Production version blends well with the rest of the game.
Even if I drop my head to the point where the flasher behind is completely obscured, the upper flipper is completely in view, as well as the vampire shot, guillotine, and the guillotine function (vampire visibility is wide open, and even for the shortest person that can see the glass, it's easy enough to see around the crypt to view the guillotine). I kept off-axis viewing in mind for average adult height, so the guillotine and such is visible to adult guests from any angle, but shorter guests to the left may not see the guillotine as well).
Otherwise, I agree the crypt helps add to the game atmosphere (loosely based on the crypt as it's seen on the LCD screen), and it's a lot more satisfying to see the ball appear as though it enters the crypt rather than fall into a hole on from an unmarked, black surface.

PLEEEEEEEEEEEASE, say you'll be able to offer a few of these. I plan on picking up the whole suite of mods when my machine ships, but this one is my favorite!
We shall see. I may decide to hand make a few.
