ColorDMD Rocks Data East!
ColorDMD Displays is excited to announce support for Guns N' Roses pinball machines! This marks the 35th multicolor release for ColorDMD, 4th new title in 2016, and first ever for the Data East pinball platform! Amid all the news of a GNR reunion at Coachella this year and possible stadium tour, this is the perfect time to pay tribute to this great band and a great game!
Guns N’ Roses is the debut release for Color DMD developer Will Dann. A life-long fan of the band and a pinball enthusiast, Will viewed this challenge as a labor of love. Will went to his first Guns N’ Roses concert 23 years ago and has owned the pinball machine for 8 years. He will never part with it. Ever.
He resides in the greater Seattle area with his amazingly understanding wife Suzi. In his spare time he gazes pathetically at the pieces of his Star Trek: TNG pinball machine that have been lying on the floor of his man cave for almost a year. Maybe now he will have time to finish working on it!
The ColorDMD for GNR pinball machines leverages the company's popular SIGMA platform and supports six different rendering modes. Multicolor operation is enabled through free download and installation of a game-specific ROM using a USB drive. The display may be reconfigured for use with any supported title.
Installation in GNR is slightly more challenging than other platforms and requires minor modification of the speaker panel to remove one of the existing mounting posts. Detailed installation instructions will be provided on the GNR product page prior to release.
Displays for GNR will be available on the company's store site the week of March 6, and the color ROM will be available for download by Friday, March 11. We will send a follow-up announcement to our mailing list when displays are back in stock on the site. A video preview and livestream of the game are being planned prior to release.
Thank you for your continued support! Please stay tuned for some other exciting new information and product announcements later this month! For additional information, including upcoming game previews, please visit us at www.colordmd.com!
