COLORDMD AIN'T AFRAID OF ITS 80TH GAME!
ColorDMD is excited to announce Ghostbusters as the 80th title to be supported by the ColorDMD multicolor pinball display platform! Ghostbusters will debut this week at both Chicago Pinball Expo and the Houston Pinball and Arcade Expo!
It's hard to believe a full year has past since we first teased "We Came, We Saw, We Kicked [Star Trek's] Ass!" At that point Ghostbusters work was in progress and though we knew we had some time to go, we didn't fully appreciate the depth and detail Stern packed into the Ghostbusters animations. Where Star Trek was technically difficult, Ghostbusters runs DEEP!
Similar to Star Trek, Ghostbusters took a team effort with ColorDMD's Chris Enright taking the lead, early development by Mark Jarzewiak, and Randy providing additional help where needed. Further enhancements were made to the coloring engine to manage the dynamic colorized text that appears across Ghostbusters twelve main modes and wizard modes, along with structural changes to the processor to aid future development.
Many of the techniques developed to complete Star Trek came in especially useful for coloring Ghostbusters' abundant incorporation of 3D-rendered animation sequences. We Got One! In fact we got a lot! Slimer, Gozer, Stay-Puft and the rest of the grim grinning ghosts are here in full-color, awaiting capture and relocation to a nearby storage facility. Call Now! We're ready to believe you.
The ColorDMD for Ghostbusters pinball machines shares the same easy-to-install hardware platform as previous ColorDMD releases. All displays ship with the factory installed SIGMA ROM that supports WPC, WPC95, SAM, Whitestar, and SPIKE platforms. Multicolor operation is enabled through download and installation of a game-specific color ROM file, available from our site. ROMs can be changed at any time, allowing use with any of our supported titles.
Displays are shipping now from our store site or through our distributors. The color ROM for Ghostbusters pinball machines will debut at Chicago Expo and the Houston Arcade Expo this week and is targeted for public release by Friday, October 19!
