Cola video final version.

It has animated the background rays, the letters Cola and the glass of Cola dancing. Gas bubbles are also added. Background music and sound of the gas bubbles of the drink is added. Versions with the liquid in brown and red were tested, but in the end the best one is the original white and so it stays.

In the video of the Cola, I told the designer to try to better synchronize the rhythm of the music with the dance of the character, it seems that it goes a little out of time, and incidentally we tried with the gas bubbles throughout the background Let's see how it looks.

And we already work on another video, the designer tells me that he is already working with the PopCorn video.

The video looks awesome - and i know taste is different for all of us, but i would probably prefer it without the text "cola" as well.

But even with the text it looks amazing!

Quoted from Phantasize:

I like the animation of Cola turning into bubbles. Go with what you like, as you're never going to please us all.

#1404 1 year ago

yes no text 'cola', and the liquid could be brown instead of white. But again that is what you get when you show stuf in progress. Just show the final and we all will be happy and live with it as is.

#1405 1 year ago

 
Variations on the video of the Cola. Synchronized the sound with the dance of the character, changes in the letters (the thickness of the white is increased), change of the color of the liquid by one similar to that of the Cola using a gradient.

As for the background, I prefer the previous one with the background rays, this is a test of the designer. Or I may leave both videos and the program select one at random each time the video in the Cola is triggered.

This video is already finished, with both background versions, and we continue with the design of a new video, now working on the Popcorn animation video.

 

 

#1406 1 year ago

Agreed, sometimes you must let your imagination do the work. Is there cola in the cup?

#1407 1 year ago

Really nice work!Waiting for the release of this great mod!

#1408 1 year ago

I would probably use the rays in the background on all 4 snackbar videos. That way they kind of tie together. They can be different colors, and still easily identify that it is a snackbar hit.

#1409 1 year ago

Yes and cola is best brownish.....unless it's milk...

#1410 1 year ago

 
 
Final version of the tail animation already finished. Finally there are two files of the same animation, in which only the type of bubbles changes, one with the bubbles above the glass, and the other with the background bubbles. In these animations, the sound has been synchronized with the character's dance, the thickness of the white of the letters has increased, the liquid is now the color of the Cola and with a gradient to make it more realistic. This animation of the Cola, we have already finished, we continue with the development of new animations of the list of 24 videos of the kit.

The designer has already begun to work on the animation of Popcorn (video attached), there is still a lot to do until we have the final version, but he works very fast. I think in a few days it will also be finished.

I also attached an image of the Kit boards set to check the CPU, which I will use to check the status of all pinball signals, in my Hologram Kit tests. I have created a new adapter board to check also the Bally/Williams WPC-S and WPC95, in addition to the WPC89 that I already did to check the Creature. I have also created an interchangeable universal mini board, with two LED matrices (8x8 each one), this is used to see the status of all lamps and output signals in any Bally/Williams. This complete product will also be available for those interested in buying it, I will add it to my Facebook virtual store. Its possible than in the future I add also adapter boards to check Stern SAM and Stern WhiteStar.

popcorn video looks cool, but the 3D glasses sliding down is so subtle that you don't notice them having slid down until he's adjusts them back up

love the cola video, but still think that the 'COLA' text is unnecessary

#1412 1 year ago

Nice animations. I'm on board with JM and others who believe the "Cola" text is unnecessary. I believe it also detracts from the actual animation work.

#1413 1 year ago

I don’t mind the cola writing, I think it pretty neat the way you made it bubble.
Each to their own, maybe you can have options with or without like you’ve done with the UFO?
But I’m happy with it as is.

#1414 1 year ago

I think the popcorn needs more butter

#1415 1 year ago

 
Study of the movement of popcorn, to generate the video of the animation, with an effect as realistic as possible. Let's see what the designer surprises us about the background and music for this animation, I have told them to be different for each character.

The points will be replaced by popcorn, it is adjusted so that it is in a loop and this animation is already left, for the background we can do something similar to the attached image. That above the popcorn there is an explosion, that 2D popcorn looks like the bubbles of the Cola video but instead of rising, they fall, and they accumulate on the floor

Is this mod available to purchase ?
Or a list to purchase

Looks amazing

No to both questions ... but it's really starting to take shape and can't be that far from being offered

#1418 1 year ago

I own 2 creech pins
Love the game
I’m in

#1419 1 year ago

I want it but I will wait for sound.

#1420 1 year ago

 
We continue to make progress with popcorn animation, although there are still a few things to do. This is a test for sound, the designer proposes 3 soundtracks, in this video you can hear all three. I like the second one.

I want the character to change the right hand (picture attached with my new proposal), it is very rare, although it is the original drawing somewhat reduced in size. I also want him to change the movement of his left arm so that he does not go so many times to put on his glasses.

It remains to add the background, the popcorn that falls and remains on the floor, the POPCORN text at the top and maybe a couple of more details, such as a few tickets to the drive-in and a piece of film roll. We are inspired by some images like the one attached for the additions.

#1421 1 year ago

 
We continue with the popcorn animation. The right hand has already been corrected, we allow the right foot to be lifted during the dance, and it is reduced to one time when the left arm is moved to raise the glasses, the music that will finally have this animation is also included. There is still a better synchronization of the character's dance with the music.

Now we are adding the popcorn that falls to the ground. It is a somewhat complex process, because we have to individually animate each one, and synchronized with the popcorn that are jumping in the box. There will also be other popcorn already on the ground, to which those that fall will join.

The end result may seem simple, but in reality it is complex to make it look good, and be realistic. The graphic designer is doing a great job, following my instructions and corrections, to offer videos of the highest quality, and so it will be with all the videos, up to 24 of the kit (in its full version)

 

 

#1422 1 year ago

Awesome amount of personality you’re adding to these characters. Great work!

#1423 1 year ago

I cannot wait to order this mod and give my Creech the final touch it needs to be complete.

#1424 1 year ago

Was thinking perhaps instead of the text saying ‘Cola’ it might be better saying ‘Soda’ !?

That said I’d prefer without text.

#1425 1 year ago

I'm very interested... keep on truckin'

#1426 1 year ago
Quoted from acidburn:

Soda? Hopefully you're kidding.

#1427 1 year ago

Here in Texas it is Coke no matter what flavor it is but I actually think POP would be good. You do what you want and it will sell.

#1428 1 year ago
Quoted from robertmee:

Soda? Hopefully you're kidding.

It’s “Pop” in much of the Midwest (Ohio, Michigan). Soda is what I grew up saying in Massachusetts, and had to transition to “Pop” upon moving to Ohio. Then when I lived in Missouri, it was super confusing, because the southern half of the state says “Coke”, the other part says “Pop”. And wherever you go, everyone thinks the rest of the country is stupid for not saying it the “correct” way.

That was kind of my point....cola is more universal. Soda is very regional.

#1430 1 year ago

Looks better without text.

#1431 1 year ago
Quoted from rubberducks:

I agree. Leave it to the imagination. You are not putting "Popcorn" under the popcorn guy. Removing the text would keep things more uniform from image to image.

#1432 1 year ago

 
I have already told the designer, to create the four food videos (cola, popcorn, icecream, hotdog), with both versions, with text and without text for each one. Then I will put parameters in the configuration file so that the texts can be enabled or disabled.

 

#1433 1 year ago

The more I think about it the more I want pop.

#1434 1 year ago
Quoted from robertmee:

Essentially, that was also my point - there's no way to make everyone happy, so better to leave it off entirely.

#1435 1 year ago

I would prefer something over nothing

Don't worry, you'll soon see 'the final version' along with all the comments about the changes they are making and are waiting to see the results

#1438 1 year ago

Just do it my way, you know its the best.

#1439 1 year ago

I'm in - can't wait for the list and cost!! Great work

#1440 1 year ago

I am blown away, this looks absolutely awesome. Cant wait to see final product. Great job!

#1441 1 year ago

 

Testing several backgrounds in the final version, although there are still some things to correct.

Of these backgrounds, I did not like the colors of any, so we will probably end up using the same one that was used in the COLA video. There are some more details to correct, such as adding some more popcorn on the ground, positioning the character somewhat higher and improving the popcorn that is in motion, more popcorn were added but the result does not convince me.

In general this is the final idea of the video, to which the tickets of the drive-in and the frames of the movie were added, but I don't like the background colors, the first one is very pale and the other two very dark. Since this video is almost finished, just pending making the corrections I indicated, I update the status of the list of videos in the kit, with that of the popcorn. I think the graphic designer will continue with the videos of Ice Cream and Hot Dog, to finish with the 4 characters of the SnackBar meal.

Also attached one of the animations of Cola, without text. There is another version with background bubbles, I will also do it without text.

I am not sure the boot / diagnostics screen should count towards any what appears to be price tier packages? (almost half the basic ones) those are core components of the product and should just be included.

Sorta like app saying there basic iphone11 comes with a screen (no shit)

Not a fan of the lazy pcb designs but am really liking what the graphic designer is coming up with, hes captured the style of the machine incredibly well! looking forward to seeing the other's.

What exactly do you see that is lazy? I have designed hundreds of pcb over 40 years in electronics and I don't really see anything lazy in his designs; they look very professional to me with a good level of explanatory text included on them and not too crammed, but not wasting space.

Just interested to see the designs through somelses eye's

Everything is auto routed and it looks horrible! designs this simple can easily be hand routed and be far more effient. Using the auto router on designs this simple is just lazy. It's designed for complex/compact designs not to just route any pcb. Just put some thought and love into the pcb designs and they will turn out so much nicer!!! Delete that auto router unless your designing some pc mother board or crazy soc linux design.

Bakerman, don't waste your time responding to the TROLLs.
Unfortunately in all forums there are TROLLs, and in my threads the same TROLLs, 3 Germans and 1 English always enter.

These four disgusting guys (Luck1, Rappelbox, Malenko and Russdx) are ALWAYS bothering, criticizing meaningless, insulting, spreading lies, discrediting and provoking. Avoiding and ignoring them is the only thing that works, the greatest of contempt that is the only thing that TROLLs deserve.

In addition, some of them even create fake accounts to continue acting with impunity, this is Rappelbox, with their fake accounts sicko_fual and now with Raaalph.

They are people who do not contribute anything good to the forum, they only dedicate themselves to disturbing and releasing shit with their posts. I've long since banned them all four, so as not to waste time reading their nonsense, barbarities, lies and provocations.

Again, you're barking up the wrong tree with Malenko, and as I'm pretty sure you know, he isn't German.

Also, I don't think it really benefits anyone (you particularly) to post something like this every time they post or troll.

Let your work speak for itself.

I will always post under this account nothing to hide here! Just merely pointing out using the auto router on simple pcb designs is lazy, if that makes me a troll so be it!

Yeah, but wtf do you care? I dont get that mentality. Hes providing a much needed mod. Your post is self serving at best and trolling at worst. It absolutely accomplishes nothing. I dont understand why people feel it's important to post needless criticism just for the sake of posting. Whether lazy or not, it has zero bearing on the outcome. If it works, is reliable, and does the job, that's all that matters.

#1449 1 year ago

I think that your eyes and screen resolution must be better than mine. I agree about autorouting not looking as good but nowadays it's all about the time. If the the finished design operates in a exactly the same matter customers just want the cheapest solution; manually or autorouted.

You are not trolling; just stating your opionin.

One man's lazy is another man's efficient.

Also unprovable. But it did give the thread a bump, so the OP owes him a high five for that!
