Everyone helps...

Paint will take 10 days to thoroughly dry.
Time enough I hope to prepare the cabinet and decals for that I hope.

#52 2 years ago

Put the boards and light panrl back in and... Just couldn't wait and at least had to apply one decal ( without the lock hole).

WP_20200724_23_06_35_Pro (resized).jpgWP_20200724_23_47_03_Pro (resized).jpg

And yes, color is a bit off but the precut decal fits like a charm!

Very happy!

Glad the battery board installed fast!

Lol.

But since I ordered earlier ones before: It really fits like a dream, no force at all required.

Essential upgrade imho.

Just found this thread.
Everything looks great. Can't wait to see the playfield artwork.
Hopefully this will get me motivated on my on project pin.

The cab long has been completely prepped and my last days were so shitty I just called work quits early for today and started to continue drawing on this...

And no it's not the final lineart, Text is missing as well as the people in the car.
(Since I have to lay them out multiple times to be able to mirror the image.)

What has changed is that there's more stuff happening in the background, to be able to include basically every character from the game.

YES! I was hoping this project was still going

#58 1 year ago

Characters are in, details might still change but I'll start coloring now...

The worlds slowest total conversion continues...

Srsly, it's finally summer vacation, I have a bit of spare time on my hands and I was very unsatisfied with Mirandas face before so...

Continuing (not yet done)...

vacation.jpg

I finally ordered new legs & stuff (due to covid (?) they were gone everywhere) so I can reassemble the game this weekend.
Would be nice to at least have the side artwork done by then.

#61 1 year ago

That looks incredible! I'd love to have half of your drawing talent...

You ain't got nothing on my Voltron in that department! I'm still YEARS ahead...err...BEHIND OF YOU!

Thanks, but that's kinda the problem. Since I do this for living, it has become very rare that I sit down and draw just for fun. XD
(So don't praise me, I'll just break everyones heart. )

With the Success of Ultraman, you now have a possible challenger! Can you finish it before Spooky (maybe) does it...

#64 1 year ago

Honestly? Probably not. I'm going to spend the next year paying for my Ultraman BSE before I can even think about returning to trying to get ahold of a WPT...

#65 1 year ago

Sideart done! (Edit: Allready making changes. XD)

Now I have to properly measure the cab, and get this thing printed...

sideart.jpg

After that propably no updates for the next 6 months, as always... XD

#66 1 year ago

The side decals are in the printing studio, hoping to get them this week.

So now for the front decal...

seiten.jpg

And I'm a giant idiot messing up my initials in the number plate TWO TIMES!!! XD
(I didn't notice because this here are the letters my actual car has (wich is pretty close to my initials). -_-; )

Oh, my...

#67 1 year ago

Lesson learned: Clean off the dust before applying decals.
Immediate next: Polish the siderails.

That looks fantastic. Can't wait to see the rest of it!

#69 1 year ago

So, head is back on. Siderails polished/ buffed. New Flipper Buttons. (New Legs, screws and feet as well) Painted the backbox hinge as well as all visible screws and got them back on. New Snap latch on the back, but…

…srsly anyone can show me photos of the screw inside and outside of the cabinet that holds the playfield? I forgot to take pictures and it took me far too long to get this far, so… XD

(Edit: Found it, but one rubber ring is missing.)

So, Police Force is mostly reassembled, and since I‘m not too good at this (and the parts lay around all over the place for 1,5 years) I‘m proud it‘s still working… well for the most part.

Buffed and painted nearly everything, took me 2 hours for the lockbar alone but I‘m mostly happy. (Dented coin door is still dented.)

Printed out the manual and going trough switch problems while waiting for some parts.

Obviously the front decal is still missing so I‘m on that.
As you may see I replaced the white Start Button with a lit Stern one. (It’s working but not yet lit.)
This will be used as the green traffic light in the decal.)

Cool project and great work. I always thought this game would be neat to retheme into Tim Burton's Batman, since that was the original intent.

Definately, but since you can‘t change the music or callouts that easily that‘s a way tougher job.

My goal for now is to get the game working and the cab done. Backglass later, Playfield waaay later and not touching code for the most part. XD

I bought the Bonkers home video "I Oughta Be In Toons" off eBay. It's one of the few surviving VHS tapes of the show. I'll capture and upload it if you want more source material for ideas.

Wow, I didn't know you were doing this DS_Nadine. Very cool project! Also, I have seen some very enterprising folks manage to get custom music and callouts into these old games. Not sure what it takes, but I've seen people using arduinos and mini-computers and stuff like that to do some pretty neat stuff.

Did the additional video material help with anything?

Oh, hi wow you guys! XD

Sorry, made myself rare. Thing is not dead but I am... kinda. XD

Thx for the episode links. I have the VHS tapes and "i guess" the whole series... in german in mediocre quality; so I'll definatly look in your links Crash !

As for DakotaMike , since Pinsound won't work here, redoing the sound package is not an option at the moment.

To be blunt I'd be happy if I ever get that alternate art package done. - I'm not doing any tinkering in general at all at the moment (life stuff), wich is a bummer, but the machine is set up again; kids just played it last week and want to see the series again. So I'll definately get back to that. - In the meantime I hope to find a new spinner.
