Greetings Pinheads!

(It dawned on me that we don't have a "persistent" thread on here, so here we are!)

THANKS for all the support over the years, being able to turn this hobby into a career has been made possible by everyone who tunes in each night to shoot the breeze, criticize my game-play, and overall just hang out in support of each-other.

If you don't know what DeadFlip is:

DeadFlip is live Pinball show that broadcasts daily on Twitch. M-F 6PM C.
We showcase new game releases, tournaments, private collections, and locations that keep this hobby going!
DeadFlip also works closely with major manufacturers to debut their titles, and bring attention to their brands and events.
The nightly show (DeadFlip) is just the tip of the iceberg on what we do...
We also sponsor events, apps, players, charities, as well as offering our platform to help promote and signal boost groups/players, more notably the http://www.bellesandchimespinball.com/ on occasion.

We've been streaming Pinball for 6 years, been recognized by Twitch as an Ambassador for their platform, by Stern as an Ambassador for their brand, and by Twin Galaxies/Walter Day for our contribution to this hobby of ours (to name a few).

You all made this possible. Thank you again and can't wait to see you in chat!

I'll be using this space to announce upcoming broadcasts of note, and showcasing VODs.

Follow us on the some of the links below to stay up to date!

We recently unboxed a TMNT Pro LIVE on stream, then set up the game to play it for a couple hours.
Check it out here!

We're also playing this dang game tonight... it just flows sooooo good!

Cool

Need to get my hands on it to see how Tronesque it feels

I remember seeing this layout early and almost crapped myself.
The whole thing came together, better than I could have hoped.
It's fricken FAAAAAAST, in a real good way.

Awesome work Always love your streams and input to the hobby!

#6 1 year ago

I really appreciate your casual instruction videos. I like to be able to see how a game plays and what general objectives and strategies work on games I am not familiar (or good) with. Focused instruction is great for those with a lot of time already on a particular table, but if you dive too far into the weeds on a game people aren't familiar with then a lot of eyes will start to glaze over. Good work on the videos.

Thanks bub! Your mods are next level! <3
All my games are loaners, otherwise I'd be drowning in mods.

Right, that's the split.
I like to keep it fun, and trick your brain into learning something. lol.

If I go off the deep-end in explaining stuff, it kills the vibe of the room.

Dead Flip stream will respectively be at 9:00, 7:28 or 6:38....

I would love to see you experiment with different streaming playfield angles.
For some reason I find it difficult to watch the overhead view, would like to see more of a slight angle towards the players view
and somehow use more screen real estate for the playfied view

We played with a LOT of angles early on, and top-down is just what felt right.
A more "Players-eye view" would be ideal. Lemme think on it some more.

The end-all-be-all would be like watching a Pinball FX game, without getting in the way of the player.

Love the streams Jack...

Though I prefer the ones where you get shitty on White Claws and play your Trumpet.

Hey Dude!
Been watching you since 2014.
Always one my first stops on the net every night.
Don't really chat anymore as it's not my thing but I'm always watching
Thanks for all the great content.

#21 1 year ago

Watched the stream last night and really enjoyed it. Was way more lax than your regular streams. Also helps that it was Elvira and I should have my own premium delivered on Thursday. It will be my first real pin and seeing you stream it originally was a big factor in me picking it up. Turtles looks great and can’t wait to see you stream it more.

Yeah last night was pretty chill.
Also FRICKEN CONGRATS ON YOUR FIRST PIN! You bought a Lyman game, it's gonna be great.
Something about EHOH is like that, the shots are just clean so you aren't stressing (or in my case yelling) as much!

My Deadheads kick-out is kinda borked, but I usually get prototypes off the line. Just needs some adjusting.

#24 1 year ago

I don't tune in that often, tough for me to catch stuff live, but always enjoy seeing what you're up to when I do. Happy for your success man, you did the grind and you've earned all of it.

It's all good bub, not everyone has time to watch my ass play and drink! Haha
Thanks for the kind words Aurich! <3

Whether it’s FB, twitch or here you’re a great resource for great content (whether it’s pinball or just chatting)! Zoltar says hi!! lol.

It's all about availability.

When we were able to leave the studio, we streamed a much bigger mixed bag.
There is also the case of quantity. Stern puts out a lot of machines.

I'm happy to stream it all, I just need to have it here in the studio at the moment!
Talking to AP about snagging a Hot wheels soon, and JJP and I have spoken about borrowing a Wonka for a bit!

Fun fact, I got started in this hobby doing work for JJP. (Wicked Witch animations, and I designed the back-end menu system they still use today!)

#32 1 year ago

I thought the Hot Wheels was good

#33 1 year ago

I want hot jams back. dmca musics sux Jack. Boohoohoo
Otherwise love the streams and wish it would not start over here at 1.00 AM when i have to get up for work early the next day.

#34 1 year ago

Jack is in the house

Love your streams....following every time Stern comes up with a new game. Thanks for your contribution.

Jack, I used to love those streams where you'd go to an arcade and set up a rig on a location machine. Unfortunately along comes not only Covid, but DMCA. Talk about a one two punch. Seems like it might be hard to stream any location that plays background music in the future.

You have no clue how big of a headache this is all about to become. The game, The environment, all DMCA fodder.
A lot of smart people are working on it, hopefully it gets figured out sooner than later!

There’s something to be said about this. JD, I love your streams and watch the replays on YouTube a lot so I can pause and rewind, but I find myself on my 92” projector way more than my regular 42” because the PF view is just too condensed. I know how rectangles work and the difficulties with it, but if there was a way to better crop the pertinent area, it could help those with smaller screens.

Also definitely highlight how the Amazon Prime thing works for DeadFlip. Took me like a year to link the two and I don’t even know when I watch live if it knows I’m a prime member. Much love though.

Hey, starting watching your streams back in March. Quality stuff dude.

Loud and clear! I'll start messing with my cams again tomorrow morning and see what I can come up with as an experiment!

#45 1 year ago

Hey Jack, even if I've been annoyed with you on occasion, I do appreciate your talents, and what you've done for the hobby. I'm glad that you are continuing to make content. I think it's a good thing that you're going to have a bit more presence on Pinside, and I hope that you can be a positive force in the hobby going forward in these uncertain times. I think we can all agree that pinball drama ain't good for nobody.

Good luck dealing with this Twitch DMCA malarkey!

#46 1 year ago

Going live on TMNT Pro at 6pm c.
See you there!
