Artwork looks great. Can't wait to play this machine soon.

Now Europe has to show they can not only design but also produce so HP and DP: crank these babies out

Played finally the Alien SE yesterday.

Was a good positive surprise despite the fact that I am typical not a wide body fan. It really catches the mood of the Alien movies (of which I am a fan) in sound and visual effects. Softwarewise there was already nice stuff to do. The Alien toy didn't work (awaiting the new assembly) so didn't see that in action unfortunately (gives me also a reason to go back ). Than knowing this has the price of a stern pro in Europe makes it a better bargain for the pinball and Alien lover.

Congrats to Andrew and his team. Now two challenges for them remain: crank these babies out and make sure quality is OK. They realize this for sure as I see them redesigning stuff after delivery of the first units in the field.

I remember when aborting the possible extra ball buy-in also wrong player was shown on display. So aborting player 2 for instance the message on display would read player 1. Easy to test, was all 4 games I played on same machine.

All pricing on Alien in Austria. Pricing on the SE is more or less in line with a Stern Pro over here, 'just' a few 100 EUR more. Pricing includes VAT

I double checked and found out that the PDF is different as their Webshop. SE pricing is according to the Webshop:

Quoted from pinballrockstar:

I think the Alien kit will give them big income,way less work than building an entire pin.
The modular system is a winner.
Bought full throttle 3 days ago,it is very smart.
They will ramp up and make money.

Guessing Helmond down 1 Heighway pinball, Rotterdam 1 up

Friend distributor received his replacement playfield. He installed it this week and I did some testplaying.

Am unable to play a full game as it freezes constantly. Have to switch it off on to have it working again.

Firmware is 102. Shaker is not there but turned off anyway.

Any ideas ? Below is a picture when it is frozen.

Damn, it worked 3 hours at a row. Not even an off on for fixing the switch glitch.

Only a multiball ended suddenly, draining all balls and that was that ball

Had a brief contact with Helmut and he confirmed his leaving HP

It was time to move on and take a break from Alien and FT are his words.

Real pitty, he will be missed by alien owners

Quoted from pascal-pinball:

a dealer in The Netherlands is selling his demo-Alien pinball ... now I know why...

To be fair, he had it up for sale prior to this announcement. I know this for sure as I was the one who informed me on the situation this evening .... and his add was already up. His alien was staying with me for tweaking and ironing out the hardware issues.
