A bit... Data Easty sort of. Centre ramp looks odd. Be interesting in the flesh.

Quoted from konjurer:

You would find NO PC hardware! I work for one of the largest suppliers of avionics that go in virtually every Boeing and Airbus. It's all custom hardware. There may be some Linux but still not much. Most safety critical systems use either no OS or a realtime OS like Wind River. Perhaps some of the DAL Level E systems like entertainment systems might use some PC hardware but I doubt it.
For a pinball machine, PC hardware (a cheap SBC) seems to be a logical choice in some cases.

Thanks for this - I seriously had not thought that any large aircraft would use PC based hardware anywhere, and when I read the comment thought that was the last time I got into a plane (just flew around the country last week). Very happy to hear that, as I expected, embedded stuff is the way of things.

Quoted from Homepin:

First, I have just arrived back in the factory after spending 2 weeks in Australia. My internet was pretty sketchy while traveling and I was too busy to even look at the internet anyway.

But posting on the Australian Forum??

Thanks mate, I think we'll need it!

Will be interesting to play. The center placed ramp really does not appeal aesthetically, and being square on, I wonder how well it works (ie does the ball crash into the sides of the ramp?)

Quality and longevity is going to be interesting too, not sure if these are coming out of the same factory that built "those" Lowboys?

Quoted from PinSinner:

still contain small errors/faults/incomplete things

Why would you not fix errors and faults??? I can understand "incomplete things", but to say there will be errors and faults sounds like an excuse in advance.

#2144 1 year ago
Quoted from PinSinner:

Full disclosure I suppose. I'm sure that they are working to fix any errors or faults they find. That is the point of these test machines is it not.

I'm not sure of that - "WILL still contain" (as stated) as opposed to "might still contain" would be the point of test machines - to find any not yet found. To send them out when there are *known* errors and faults would mean you are testing them with errors which I would have thought would compromise the information gained?

Quoted from Homepin:

For goodness sake, stop being so pedantic please!

Lol!! Thanks for the clarification, the earlier inaccuracy was concerning.

Threads (and vendors) like this make me embarrassed to be an Aussie.....

Quoted from john17a:

what about our Govt thats an even bigger reason to be embarrased

Very true!

#2914 1 year ago
Quoted from Homepin:

Posts like this make me so ashamed that you could even contemplate commenting when you have no idea of the full facts and are simply believing hearsay like so many reading this thread.

Oh, no I'm not commenting on the *situation* at all, you misunderstand my intent. Sorry if my post confused you. I never claimed to know any facts whatsoever in my simple sentence.

I am commenting on the *behaviour* of certain posters, which is here, in black and white, and certainly does not rely on hearsay.

Finally got onto one of these today. It looked very lonely and unloved at Melbourne Flipout. Only game without a player let alone a queue. I got bored very quickly, not as quick as Timbo who walked off half way through my second ball. Weird game, flippers felt like an old Williams 25volt system with a built in delay. Like the artwork I guess.
