Looks good! Don't forget to get that other beacon on

Edit: I officially blame this epic posting fail on my dark macbook air screen. and my old eyes apparently. And anything else I can come up with in the future.

Looks like a fire alarm and not a beacon. LOL

EDIT: I see what you mean...lol Yeah I thought that was one of the tall skinny beacons on first glance. I think this photo was a conspiracy to embarrass me!! Damn my eyes are worse than I thought.

#12206 1 year ago

Ya, my vision sucks too. Helps if you have a big monitor.

#12207 1 year ago

LE artwork there to be shown and get the LEs shipping out?!

After Texas they are going to need to get production ramped up, if the game plays as good as it's looking now I can see a lot of new orders coming in after this weekend.

Any le news or images?....

Not yet, but he has a presentation at 4pm on Sat. I spoke to Andrew for a few while he was getting the three machines set up. The machines arrived just before the show opened and Andrew was scrambling to get them set up. All three looked new as he pealed the protective film off the LCDs and side art. I was one of the very first to play today and loved It! My hand however didn't help with my game. My wife liked the game very much and I think I have her blessing to buy one now

I think I found a good replacement for fiber optic lighting. This is more expensive than El wire but looks to be superior and at a much lower price point than fiber optics.

"The OpalDrive module includes a rechargeable lithium ion battery which stays powered for over 24 hours on a single charge. "

How are you converting it from battery powered to hardwired?

#12217 1 year ago
Quoted from Wickerman2:

Charged with 5V via micro-usb. Should be easy to add to a cab.

Why don't you just order the fiber optic add on. Am I missing something?

Yes, about $670.

You plugging it in to a service jack?

I'm not doing anything with it. My LE comes with fiber optic ramps.

your next game may not, it was rhetorical. How is a plug in USB going to work?

#12225 1 year ago

Wires can be cut and spliced. You want a specific location to grab power from? Won't know until I get my game. But power can generally be robbed from a variety of locations. If you don't want to rob 110V, 5V could probably be tapped into from somewhere. Depending on how much you value a warranty...

Quoted from Wickerman2:

How are you converting it from battery powered to hardwired?

Yes, it runs full time off a usb brick, or a battery

#12227 1 year ago

Someone, if you have the capabilities, please record Andrew speaking at TPF today. It would be really nice to hear what he has to say. I know we're at the pivotal "is it about to ship or what?" stage, and I'm sure we'd all like to know what the outcome of his time to speak at TPF is about.

#12228 1 year ago

And so it begins.

#12230 1 year ago

Hmm what is this about????

#12231 1 year ago

Finally!

#12232 1 year ago

What? Just a white cabinet with the words "Alien Pinball LE Artwork" on it? Kind of on the nose and disappointing.

#12233 1 year ago

Can someone ask them how the 3 Aliens have been holding up so far? Guess each should have seen about one day's worth of use.

#12234 1 year ago

Ok so i may not post pics publicly. What Andrew showed were examples of artwork that was either scrapped or art that hasnt been decided yet.
The art is solid and the audience consensus was that they liked the aliens xeno for the LE.
I like what i see but since there is no official approved art ill leave it to that

#12235 1 year ago

Ok i cant be a dick tease. I like this one best out of what was shown. Nothing official , nothing approved.

Okay here you go. A few notes from Andrews presentation and Alien LE artwork (sorta) revealed.

Fiber optics to be unique and revealed in a few weeks. Alien has 50m of wire, FT has 18m. Only one playfield box will fit under each cab. Games 3 and 4 are licensed games and designed by Oursler.

Any hints about upcoming themes or timetable for future releases?

#12238 1 year ago
Quoted from chucksmith:

Thanks Lamprey, I've not seen these before.
Just to clarify .. its 3 bucks if you buy 50 or more. Its $8 for 1.
Check the site for qty pricing.

LOL, good catch. I remember spending about $5 each when I bought a bunch of them a while back. I saw the "$3" and thought that they just had lowered their prices since last time I bought. I guess not so much.

#12239 1 year ago

Supposedly Heighway is adding a Bill Paxton tribute to the pin.

#12240 1 year ago

Meh, I think the standard art is actually better. Cleaner.

The Paxton tribute is already in the software as part of the Combat Drop mode.

Truly a classy move

No, sorry.

I don't think Andrew will be doing that again. No more announcing anything other than games ready to deliver, I'm hoping.

#12245 1 year ago

I like the LE Queen back glass art in the video they are not using. Interested to see what they decided on that's better!

dedicate this year to Alien sales while developing the others and maybe have something close to ready for next year...

#12247 1 year ago
Quoted from sed6:

Alien has 50m of wire, FT has 18m

FT has it all around all the ramps(and the entire game is ramps!)...how in the hell are they cramming that much in there!?

#12248 1 year ago
Quoted from sed6:

2 weeks?

#12249 1 year ago

50 meters of electrical wire or 50 meters of light up fiber optic wire/tubing?

#12250 1 year ago
Quoted from Wickerman2:

FT has it all around all the ramps(and the entire game is ramps!)...how in the hell are they cramming that much in there!?

He must be referring to the games overall wiring, FT ramps cant be 18m long if each ramps side/edge was laid out in one continuous line & Aliens ramps are not nearly 3 times longer surely
