I would like to briefly address Rick’s post relating to the color DMD upgrade and the ensuing concerns voiced by several MMR customers.
Few people, outside of the Chicago Gaming team, have any detailed knowledge of what is being developed. No one, including myself, knows how the product will be priced. We ask that everyone allow us to finish the color upgrade and determine pricing before reacting.
We reluctantly agreed to allow PPS to announce that we had begun development of the color display upgrade because of the great number of customers expressing interest in an eventual color display option.
Our goal is to provide a color display option for MMR that surpasses anything in the marketplace. ColorDMD is a great product but we wanted to take our color display to the next level.
We partnered with Athyrio Games on the project. We choose Athyrio because of the quality of their on staff artists, their programming expertise and their passion for the project.
Chicago Gaming solely funded development of the project with Athyrio working at discounted rates in exchange for a backend royalty. PPS has had no involvement in the design, engineering, or financing of the colorized product. Outside of our team, almost no one (including PPS) has even seen what is in development.
I hope this video will illustrate our team's dedication to making this product amazing. Over two thousand frames have been painstakingly animated to create a display that features four times the number of dots as the original Williams display. This upgrade will be exclusively available on MMR.
We greatly appreciate everyone’s continued support!
Chicago Gaming Company
