Quoted from epotech:

I didn't start the thread and I can't change the thread name.

Why not just start a new thread and link that thread at the bottom of this one?

If you want a mod to edit the name, please ask!

Thanks for all the updates over the years epotech. It sure would be great to see this at Allentown or York this year.

#404 2 years ago

Thanks all. Just yesterday we added a further switch so we can make the centre ramp do something more interesting. Requires some parts remaking but there's only so much you can forward plan.
Finished up all of the 5 modes and am working on the wizard mode. I found a huge performance improvement which was holding us back.
Yes I need to shoot some video but I'm crazy busy this time of year.

#405 2 years ago

Please shoot a video.

The art and production for this movie is the best IMO. Nothing comes close.

#408 2 years ago

It's got everything we need! Beautiful girl, amazing robot, flying saucer spaceship, ray guns, invisible Id Monster....the possibilities are endless.

Every time this thread gets bumped I want to believe that I’ll see “going to be produced by...” One of these days.

#410 2 years ago

that id monster would be really cool as a pinside 2000 projection on the playfield

#412 2 years ago

How long till you get some artwork on that playfield?

I changed it to just forbidden planet. If there are any other suggestions let me know.

#414 2 years ago

This movie is what got me obsessed with synthesizer music! That early analog synth sound track is what will really make it unique! No pin has ever had such an awesome retro sci fi vibe as this one would. It has to be made!!!!!!!!!!
Please, Please, Please !!!! I'm begging!!

Started in on reprogramming for mpf v.50 been putting this off as it's a total PITA. The problem with the old version was the slide player just wasn't up to the task.
Been 3 weeks and I've just got to the skillshot. Been doing battle with the changes as some of the documentation is umm of questionable quality. Had tp make some compromises such as losing the accelerometer which i was using to level the table.
as the game was getting on for fully coded there must be 100000 lines of code to sort. Probably be a couple of months to sort.

Well, hurry!

I don't think people know that its filming... just saw a lady awkwardly rubbing her belly

#428 1 year ago

Best sci-fi movie ever!
I wish you could hear the audio.
Is there chance of filming at least 1 game with the sound at a decent level before(or after)the room allows the general population into the hall?

This is such a cool machine!
Any chance your machine will ever make it to the Allentown Pinball Show or any others in the US?

#430 1 year ago

FP would be an instant buy for me!

#431 1 year ago

Hi guys. A busy weekend. MPF was experiencing a race hence the machine not serving a ball. There's a direct audio stream from Sunday both on YouTube and twitch. I had all sorts of problems with my laptop so hopefully you can at least hear something.
Yes we hope to tour at some point.
