I was curious about that too. Maybe the guys are at Expo? Didn't want a bunch of orders over the weekend??

#853 5 years ago

Temporarily out of stock due to high demand

#854 5 years ago

They are building more now. Should be ready to ship soon.

#855 5 years ago

High demand for ColorDMDs!!

2 weeks later

Just announced on Twitter:

I saw it at expo, looks great

#858 5 years ago

Are there any good videos comparing LED vs LCD?

#859 5 years ago
Quoted from TopMoose:

not likely. where is JP already? lets do this. I can paypal whoever is working on it to grease the wheels.

I will be ordering one as soon as the new models are available/in stock.

LCD ?

#865 5 years ago

Ok now on to Star Trek please!

#866 5 years ago

yes. I dont like the LED look at all. I also like the LCD scanlines and smoothing options very much.

#867 5 years ago

Not with another game code release still lingering.

You may want to check the site. DMD's were in stock when I ordered for my BDK earlier this afternoon.

Is there really another code drop coming for ST?

#870 5 years ago
Quoted from Concretehardt:

Lyman identified some issues with the code during tournament play. I can imagine that will turn into at least a bug fix release.

There are a LOT of bugs in ST ... I'm sure some of them will eventually be fixed, and maybe a spit and polish to the rules and code generally. But it's 18 months since the last release, and supposedly there will be a final release for AC/DC too ... but that's been 2 and a half years now.

So who knows when it might actually happen. Could be 5 years.

Which is why I don't see anyone wanting to touch ST nor TWD to colorize until after another game code is released. Just my opinion.

#873 5 years ago

Agree.

#874 5 years ago
Quoted from PinballManiac40:

I thought TWD code was finished, no?

#875 5 years ago

Shout if you think it is.

#876 5 years ago

ST was a huge seller for Stern so hopefully they will put a final polish on it.

#877 5 years ago

i think ST will come before Christmas
there are hundreds of potential orders for this title possible

#878 5 years ago

The new Chroma platform may have been a key enabler for solving the "issues" reported in delivering full color for ST.

Pure speculation of course.

I could see TWD being a similar challenge.

#879 5 years ago

Just imagine GB dmd in color. Ugh baby

Why not, DMD can always update their code.

#881 5 years ago
Quoted from MustangPaul:

Why not, DMD can always update their code.

Depending on what changes display wise, it can really be a PITA to restructure the logic for the new graphics. Avengers was a huge PITA to re-work to get all the gameplay changes fixed (and BFE still isn't finished) when the updated it a month after the ColorDMD was finished.

#882 5 years ago

FGY!!!...I know it's sooo close...please!!!

#883 5 years ago

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

#884 5 years ago

We got one! A hint that is.

#885 5 years ago

Family Guy is on Fox.

Mostly just to mess with the FG hopefuls

#887 5 years ago

Wait a minute back to the future doesn't have a dmd...this is going to be one hell of a retrofit kit.

#888 5 years ago

Hooray! New clue!

CaryCarmichael's Family Ties/Family Guy connection seems plausible, especially since colorized FG showed up at Expo.

But the clues are seldom direct, so my first thought is to ask what DMD games feature time machines.

Rocky & Bullwinkle
Junk Yard
Austin Powers

Any others?

#889 5 years ago

Once again...FGY PLEASE!!! ( this is my official guess on every hint moving forward, btw, until it finally drops)

#890 5 years ago

Hope it is ! Tired of the whiny posts ... FGY please!

Whiny, desperate, whatever you like to call it, I can handle it...FGY!!!

If you take the name "Michael J Fox" and keep 3 of the letters (A, C and J) then add 9 additional letters you get JURASSIC PARK.

#893 5 years ago

Ha - it's obvious:

Michael J. Fox = Back to the Future = DeLorean

= MUSTANG!!!

#894 5 years ago
Quoted from PinballManiac40:

Michael J Fox = Spin City = Twister.

#895 5 years ago

Michael J Fox stars in Back to the Future.
Michael starred along side Christopher Lloyd in the film.
Christopher lloyd played kruge a klingon in Star Trek The Next Generation.
Do you know what else has Klingons ,Star Trek into darkness.

#896 5 years ago

"Tales from the Crypt" The Trap (TV Episode 1991) - IMDb

"First time director Michael J. Fox, who also briefly appears as the prosecutor in court, ..."

Christopher Lloyd played a Klingon in the movie Star Trek III: The Search for Spock. It was not in the TV series STTNG.
