    I love the progress of this. Also makes me kind of sad to think how an individual hobbyist can add some really interesting mechs on a fully functional playfield in such a short time, and meanwhile JPOP couldn't get a flipping whitewood without a million dollars and four years.

    Quoted from rosh:

    Thanks. Having done two machines, with this being far more sophisticated, I look at what Jpop did, and there are just some really obvious mistakes he made, that really get back to him having zero business sense. One of the most critical things, given the incredible complexity around making a machine, is to use as much stock stuff as you can and avoid the 'not invented here syndrome'. You have to be so careful about wasting time and resources on the wrong things
    Even understanding the time value of money, and my desire to use stock when I can, there are times I will fabricate my own mech, etc., which could possibly end up costing more in time, than buying, but sometimes I just can't bring myself to pay the price for some piece of metal or sometimes I have not patience to wait for a part. Bottom line is you have to make comprises, and you have to accept that, so you then need to make good choices around those.

    I guess since this is a hobby, wasting time is kind of the point But yes, 100% for a business where you are beholden to present games to someone else, you better make sure you have a real plan. I mean the dice solution is not 'practical' but I think you just wanted an excuse to do vision processing software stuff and I can't blame you!
