I'm guessing Cue ball Wizard

#4702 1 year ago

Twister is a solid guess.

The only baseball theme on the board is Big Hurt and it would be huge news if they cracked the Gottlieb code.

#4703 1 year ago

Play Ball = Play Boy.
Playboy it is.
Nailed it.

That would be awesome! My guess is Big Hurt even if it's obvious.

Data East Star Trek.

At much as I want it to be this... Randy like to Torture me... so he'll make me wait until Dec 31 2020 for that title.
That said; I have my 128x16 ColorDMD LED installed; and ready for the color dots mode.

I'm thinking it may not be a 128x16; but something else.

#4708 1 year ago

Frank Thomas Big Hurt?

It does seem likely to be a 128X32 title.

Sitting in baseline seats, not the outfield -> Infield -> Infield party -> NASCAR

It's a ball PARK. Pretzels make people JOLLY. Jolly Park, YES!!!

Trying to download color code, is the colordmd site down?

Working fine for me.

#4714 1 year ago

Odd....

#4715 1 year ago

Support page was down, but it is back up now. Open a new web browser page and try again.

Probably was prepping for the newest release coming soon.

#4716 1 year ago

Need to add Heavy Metal to list of games that need colored.

KISS?

#4723 1 year ago

It must be next..... right?

#4724 1 year ago
Quoted from finnflash:

Doubtful. Ive just about given up on that title.

Someone forward me a discount code for ColorDMD.

There must be a reason it's being skipped over...

Because when it finally gets done, it's going to be awesome!

I hope/think it's taking a long time because it's a tricky, time consuming conversion.

I am sure it’s not an easy one to do. But I am sure they want to do it cause they will sell a bunch. I have faith it will get done eventually.

#4730 1 year ago

KISS!!!!
are they just holding back on purpose?
What’s the deal?

#4731 1 year ago

Well that sure put a twist on things.

The concert footage makes it challenging. Everything else is run-of-the-mill stuff.

#4733 1 year ago

You can tell what costumes they're wearing. There are tons of photos and tourbooks to reference colors and stages. What little concert footage Stern used Ive seen in video releases. All concert crowds look the same. Just get the costume colors and makeup correct. Everything else can just be improvised. I just don't get it. I think ColorDMD is enjoying the hype we're creating around their product and want to ride it out as long as possible. It's a fantastic mod-it doesnt need more hype.

I've colored 3 games for colorDMD and it's a lot of work. Even more work for the later Sterns which have a lot more animations and complex transitions between scenes than earlier games.

You arent doing it for the relatively small amount of money you recieve. You are doing it because you love the game enough to put in the many months (sometimes years) of work needed to get it done.

I think the only reason KISS hasn't been done yet is because someone who has access to and loves the game enough to put in the time hasn't committed to doing it. It's as simple as that.

This ^^^^

Count me in if there is a way to help fund the right person to like it enough to color it. A great game, and just looks sad compared to all the other colored titles around it......

I guess KISS is as polarizing in pinball as it was to the R&R HoF......is what it is....

So, is KISS your 4th, and how much longer?

All kidding aside. Guys like you, Eric, Chris
( there are so many more forgive me).
You all make Colordmd great and we can't Thank You enough.

#4737 1 year ago

As mentioned many times before, Kiss is a tough one due to the concert video sequences. The problem is finding the video footage. The exact! video footage. Hand coloring frames is NOT fun. I had to do a few in Game of thrones where Stern made some custom videos using bits of several clips. Blah.

The rest doesn't look too bad really.(That's going to haunt me I know it) Randy has been updating the colorDMD tool box for coloring and the editor can handle more dynamic scenes with some puzzle solving. I see some digital rendered stuff as well as I watch videos of game play. Doable, but time consuming.

If someone loaned me a machine AND had all the video source material I'd probably color it. I do like challenges.

#4738 1 year ago

As a Kiss fan, replacing any of the concert video with similar, older (original band) would be amazing - wish I could help - it would be a game changing upgrade

3 titles under my belt with ColorDMD and soon to be 4 (Sorry not Kiss)... Finding the exact footage at the exact point in that footage for Elvis was a pain in the ass... The only way KISS is getting done is if someone is able to get someone at Stern to share exact footage that was used. I don’t see it ever getting done unless that happens... Someone make that happen and you’ll have KISS in color! It on you guys now!

Putting in replacement footage is a no no due to rights issues. They can only overlay color onto the existing dots footage.

There is a whole lot of complete logic there. Can't argue any point - esp getting Stern to share. It'd have to be a coupe at Stern and they'd want to charge for it.

You would think Stern would be on board as it makes THEIR games look so much better, for zero cost!

#4745 1 year ago

I would be happy with everything but the concert footage colorized or different monochrome colors for those sequences.
Then a possible update in full color if they ever find the footage.

#4746 1 year ago

You don't need the concert footage to colorize what's there. AC/DC had a little bit and it was colorized.

It's ok for the gent in charge of colorizing KISS it to interpret as he sees fit.

I am by no means saying this will be easy. I'm just not buying the "must have the exact footage" argument.

All of the people who have colored games (me included) are telling you that if you want it to look good, you need the video, because the alternative is a damn nightmare to do. But sure, we’re all wrong.

I guess you missed the part where I reiterated that it would not be easy.

Just some speculation here. If you look at when the first DE 128x16 was released, every other announcement has been another H-LED title. So, I bet the next release will be DE ST or DE TMNT. There is a trend there, I'll tell ya. I hope that continues.
