Would you really buy a $350 display for a slugfest? (Serious question)

Why not? You can always install it in another game.

Enjoy it while you have it.

I have slugfest I would buy one. I would rather see Safecracker done.

4 so far!!

I hope everyone realizes that this would be a LED only type machine. From what I see, the ColorDMD board would have to be moved from the back of the display and be mounted somewhere else on the game as well.

Lack of depth to put it in? If the mounting is problematic that's not going help it get in the project queue. Anybody already have a LED display mounted in one?

#9 4 years ago

It is a similar situation as Gilligan's Island, Black Rose and Party Zone. Though, there is not a lamp board to move the ColorDMD board to the backside of so another place will need to be found to mount it to.

I tested a LCD out with the Slugfest and snapped these pictures knowing the LCD will not fit. I just wanted to see how the display would look.

I would think with Slugfest being somewhat basic. Wouldn't it be a easy colorization? I don't know what is involved, but it seems it doesn't have the complexity of other titles.

I know epthegeek has worked on some tough titles, so this is an afternoon for him. Not sure if he would do it without having a game in reach so he could test it.

Plus someone needs to see if the LED display will fit. I currently don't have a spare LED display to try out. Once a display goes in a game, it stays.

I would definitely be in for a colorDMD for my Slugfest if this happened.

I would love a color DMD for Slugfest!!! What do we need to do to make it happen???

Patience; it’s what you need.

Excited for this one to be released . Yes I will swap in color dmd in an instant for the great slugfest!
Killer game everyone should have one.

#18 3 years ago

Slugfest or any pitch n bat game are great to have with pinball. Would love to see a updated baseball game,MLB teams but the rights would be rediculous!
Maybe a slugfest remake ? SFR !!
Yeah ,come on Rick !

Who has test fitted the LED display in Slugfest? I am not quite sure it will fit. Well, at least not without moving the ColorDMD board elsewhere. Still the thinkness of the whole assembly has me worried that it may not.

#20 3 years ago

I have lcd but not led around....
I am near Allentown with a slugfest though, if anyone has an led panel to test with???

It fits. I have an LED in mine. The board does need to be detached from the display just like GI and BR.

That is good news. Can you show us a picture where you mounted the board?

#23 3 years ago

I’m out of town till Sunday but will snap a pic with the back open then.

My son likes the red (sigma color) so you can see it red but I really like white. It looked like an old-time scoreboard in white.

#24 3 years ago

Light blue should look good.

#25 3 years ago

Hope this shows it. Sort of hard to snap a pic and I realized I hadn’t put my stand-offs on and actually screwed it in yet.

All ColorDMD displays ship as a Sigma display, which you can buy now. Full color is not available yet. It would just be a downloadable multi-color ROM you have to load once it is released, just like any other multi-color ROM release. Thing about the Sigma display is that you can at anytime change the single color of the display at your choosing.

Color DMD for slugfest is here!!!!!! Looks like it was worth the wait!!!

#30 3 years ago

Looks great but there is not all that much in the game to color. I love ColorDMD but hard to justify the price of the ColorDMD considering the cost of the game. However I am sure I will buy it anyway!
