I would be in for one. But it would need to be in between the boring passport stamp cities & the R & X rated chip girls. I like the girls if I was the only one around, but I need more family friendly...

Aurich, I would be in for an alternate WPT translite if you did a run. I bought a Shadow translite and speaker panel from you and it is amazing.

I have told him a couple times I bet he would be surprised how many he would sell

#54 5 years ago

I would be interested in the postcard style translite.

I just snagged a WPT, so I could be interested

I dunno, if you check Pinside it's just not a game with a whole lot of numbers behind it, I'm not actually sure it would do that great. I'm still willing to look at it though. My friend who had one sold it, so that kind of killed some of my personal motivation to do it.

I've got a couple other projects that I'm behind on that would need my attention first, but I'll keep it in the back of my head.

This is true. The game did not have a large production run. The factory translite, however, is universally loathed. I'd say a much higher percentage of people hate the WPT translite than the Shadow translite. I still don't think you could sell nearly as many as you did for TS, but virtually everyone with a WPT would buy one.

That's a nice lineup!

Around a couple thousand IIRC.

That's because it's f-ing hideous. No disrespect to keefer and his game, but it's got one of the worst translites ever made, I truly can't stand it. If my friend had kept his I would have been motivated to do one just to not look at his anymore.

"94 Pinsiders have this game in their collections"

I actually had thought it was more like 70, that's not bad. Well, like I said, I really like what Chill did, but if he's not going to make it available any more I'm willing to try something. I just need to find some time to mess with it, which is what I've been saying about Star Trek ... It's easy to slip in a Pinside post while I'm at the computer, harder to find a few solid hours at a time to work on design.

It wasn't my art direction, or even Steve's. It was all Gary and Marc. I would go so far as to say Steve and I were actively ignored WRT pretty much all of the artwork.

This shocks me about as much as the discussion about the shooter for that game.

If you come up with an alternate design for sale keep me in the loop, I need something, anything better.

The original translite could have been designed better by a drunk monkey.

I guess you have plenty of other stuff to do at the moment, Aurich, but I would buy this in a heartbeat. Just bought a WPT and I am really happy with it. The backglass, not so much

I know you do quality design since I have already bought Shadow and Helen from you, and Alien soon too

Please keep us wpt fans in your mind the next time you are looking for a project

Heh. I did consider it once. I'll be honest, on the list of fun projects to do, this just isn't that high on the list.

Also, to be honest, I think I'm pretty much done with making Stern alt translites. I have no desire to have a project shut down by them again. I'll stick with mods that have no branding on them.

WPT really needs alternate voice work more than a translate

Retheme the whole game. Make it about a way more classic and classy poker setting. Not cheesy TV shit. Then it's suddenly a classic, because Keefer rocked it.

Feel lucky, you are not listening to the French version. The translation was made by someone who did not know anything about pinball or poker.

Yep.

Its the first Stern I ever owned and I just couldn't keep it- even though I love poker & pinball AND I was putting in the poker room where I host monthly Hold'em tourneys!

Retheme to simply poker would be great. Or, use voice work from classic gambling movies... like The Sting or Cincinnati Kid... though I know that would never happen

I will also take one Aurich! Thanks

Can't tell if you're joking or just didn't read carefully, but just to be super clear, I have no plans for anything involving WPT at this time.

You should do an Alec Baldwin WPT translite to set things right between you two.

Get me in on Aurich's alternate.

Also please put me on the preorder list for a CPR F-14 Tomcat, thanks.

I know it will be awesomesauce Aurich you can even hide a Metallica hammer in the background somewhere!!

Over at Ars Technica we have an animated smiley that's banging a hammer, now I wish Pinside had that.

GLWT. WPT's voice work is underappreciatedly complex; it would easily be the hardest game ever to redo the voice work on. Followed closely by WOF.

I am looking for a WPT translite. I might be interested in doing the art myself, as I am pretty good with photo shop. But I don't know how I would go about getting it printed to translite material.
