    We'll see if it survives the pinball assault.

    Oh no! The artist made it slightly too high!
    I guess it's good for a topper....:/

    #53 4 months ago

    Too high ? For what ?
    The throne is super nice, where is it supposed to be ?

    #54 4 months ago

    It stands higher than the channel where the glass goes. It might become part of a topper. Or just an art piece.
    Hard to capture a decent video while playing, but I played a 3 ball game on EfH today! Rebuilt the drops, and learned I have to really dial back the power, cause this thing is flinging balls around wildly.
    The leds are very low light levels, so I'm not happy with those. May need to eventually convert to a more standard lamp matrix.

    Cut the glass around it !
    The throne is too nice to be thrown away !

    What is it made off ?
    Clay ?

    #56 4 months ago

    It's clay. My youngest son likes to sculpt.
    OK, in addition to being playable, I got the attract mode sorted somewhat. 3 days to have this ready for GSPF. It will have some serious rough edges, but it will be flipping and rocking!

    Making last minute additions, then it gets packed up for Golden State Pinbal Festival. Hopefully, it lasts the weekend relatively unscathed.

    Fellow show goers, treat this machine gently!

    #59 4 months ago

    Broke a post. Time to do some wood repair.

    #60 4 months ago

    Ouch. Time to drill the holes through the playfield and install t-nuts.

    Very impressive talent. He's got some skills.

    Some dates for stats:
    Date I got the project back: Aug 4 2022
    Cabinet repair started around September 2022
    Display work started January 29, 2023
    Art received March 14 2023.
    At this point, the design work really started on the playfield. So, the bulk of the game design happened in the last 2 months.
    Lamps finished April 8.
    Solenoids wired April 23
    First flips May 7.
    Test code for display integrated into main tree May 16 (yeah, 3 days before Golden State Pinball Festival)
    And now, I'm working on fixing the posts permanently and working with Tyler on finalizing the translite, plastics and cabinet art.

    Just an update. While I'm still writing code for modes, I have to get two machines shopped for a party next weekend, so expect the next physical updates in about 2 weeks.

    #66 3 months ago

    what display are you using with FAST? Glad it's not an lcd, looks sick.

    #67 3 months ago

    No FAST. All cobrapin. Boards and displays.

    Quoted from ThatOneDude:

    Ah, cool. Might be the way I go, then. TY, game looks great. Props to your son on artwork.

    OK, so an update. Game went to Golden State Pinball Festival and played for a while until an errant ball hit the sling post on the right.
    I had a shop job on my Attack from Mars and a playfield swap to work on for my Scared Stiff, so this game went on the back burner.
    Today, I drilled out the holes for the sling posts and installed t-nuts. Played a couple of games, and started working on the code again.

    You can't have anything nice! Lol
    Glad you got it fixed. It's looking really good.
