Wow, awesome. A while back I started working on an Army of Darkness virtual pinball table, but never got around to finishing it. I was thinking about that the other day, and thought "I wonder if anyone ever re-themed a pin to AoD or a new Evil Dead (I had seen that older one linked earlier in this thread)"... then I saw your post in the "game for sale at pintastic" thread and searched this out to see what you were up to. Nice work! I'll be at Pintastic, so if this is there I'll definitely be taking a look. When you're done, any chance you'll toss out the general cost you put into all of this? I may do something like this one day. Clearly a labor of love.

Getting closer but still lots of work to do to finish everything by next week. Tonight I'm working on the backbox board. I'm retaining all the Diner backbox effects, the clock, the bobbleheads, and the jackpot chase lights (they will light up in Ash's chainsaw blade) but the problem is i need to relocate them. So lots of wiring splicing and extending to do.

We have faith in you, you can do it. Sleep is irrelevant. Seriously though, good luck! Hoping to see it there, but we'll completely understand if you run out of time. It's a huge project.

from everyone I talked to, you couldn't hear crap in that game hall because everything was so loud.. including trying to hear ash vs evil dead

#213 2 years ago

Saw this at Pintastic and talked to Brian about it for a while. What an incredible work of art this is. It's something I'd never have the balls to undertake and I have all the respect in the world for someone who does. There are some brilliant design choices...simply ingenious ways to make the old new. Wonderful!

#214 2 years ago

Definitely a beautiful pin! Thank you for bringing it to the show!

#215 2 years ago

Thanks for all the kind words. It was great to see other people enjoying it. Winning a best custom award was icing on the cake.

It held up pretty well. The biggest problem was a few stuck balls and a broken scoop switch. I totally forgot to look at the game count before the show so I dont know how many plays it got but but seemed to always have someone on it whenever I walked by.

I wish people could have hear the music and callouts better. I actuallly had 2 sound packages, the "G" rated and the "R" rated. If you watch the sound you know there is a lot of "salty" language which makes for excellent calloutswhen you drain. I think I have about 3 dozen different ways of various characters on the show saying f***. I will add an external headphone jack and headphones next time I bring the game to a show.

Looks like it might inspire some future re-themers. I talked to a couple guys at the show who now want to do their own rethemes. Maybe we'll see those next year at pintastic.

I was pretty lax in documenting my progress the last few weeks as I just didn't have time. I'll catch up on it in the next few weeks. I also need to finish some things that didnt get done in time for the show. I have the Tommy blinders installed under the apron but they dont work yet. I also still need to "animate" the logo on the tranlite using the clock mechanism. The sound package could use a little more tweaking as well.

I didnt get any video of the game in action but here are some links of others who did.

I was planning doing some videos on how I did the backbox jackpot lighting and the tommy blinders once they are fully operational.

Absolutely!
Overall best pin at the show

docquest It was nice talking with you about the table and ED/Bruce stuff in general (I was the guy in the Army of Darkness shirt near Coin Taker)
Wish you the best with finishing your masterpiece.

#219 2 years ago

docquest your machine is just awesome! Great re-theme and thank you for bringing to Pintastic. It had to have gotten 2000 plays or more. Everyone around it was siked to play it.

Bruce Campbell fans can see him in person if you are near one of the cities he'll be visiting for his book tour next month. More details at http://www.bruce-campbell.com/

Also got the speaker panel done. I added some blood splatter to the grills. Can't have too much blood on this theme.

Should have been "Shop Smart - Shop S-Mart" instead.

S-Mart was the store Ash worked at in Army of Darkness.

This machine is based on the TV show Ash vs Evil Dead which takes place 30 years later. Ash now works at Value Stop (well for the first episode anyways).

But the S-Mart quote is one of the main quotes of the movie series, so it'll fit right in with the ones who know them.

I havent set the machine back up yet since the pintastic show. Got a little burned out on it getting it show worthy for pintastic. I'd say its about 80% complete at this point. I'll get back into it this winter. I'll take better pics and vids when its 100%.

Kinda bummed the Ash Vs Evil Dead season 3 premier got pushed from this fall to Feb next year. People who saw the season 3 premier episode at NYCCC last weekend gave it high marks.

I got a new apron card from when I went to the Bruce Campbell book signing. He told me he wouldnt sue me for making an unauthorized pinball machine.

LOL- I don't think he can... considered fan art as long as it's for you personally.
Maybe "in theory" he could sue you for likeness... but again; I think this falls under fair-use, fan art.
You are safe as long as you don't sell it... or make more than one. (At least this is my Holiday Inn understanding of Fair Use)

I'm assuming he was just kidding with you anyway...

Yes his tongue was firmly in cheek when he said it.

Thanks. I'm patiently waiting for the pinsound guys to release their hardware controller to drive mods off if sound callout triggers.

Season 3 just started last week and first episode was great. I'll be grabbing any funny quotes from this season to add to the game.

Thank you for making this available at pintastic. I'm a big Evil Dead fan and this was an amazingly well done machine. The single longest play times per ball I have ever had. The ball refused to drain it seemed and was great fun.

#235 1 year ago

It's really fun and looks great! I appreciate the time and effort it took.

Plus, I put my initials up on it Friday night, haha.
