Quoted from Toucanf16:

I have all those pins! It could be five more sales! I'm following this closely!

Oh jeez, I think I need to start a punch card/loyalty program! Well, we need to make sure we do the first one justice and make people happy, then we'll roll the new ones out the market and make even more people happy.

I guess I'll just rummage through your pinside collection and make our roadmap based on that, since our tastes seem to align thus far

I'm in. I'll be a early adaptor.

not a big mod guy, but this one might be a buy.

Quoted from Compy:

You crazy TZ people and your gadgets! Interesting, we could definitely make a topper, or at least empower you to make your own if you want to tinker. We can achieve that through a couple of different ways, either splitting at the cable or by extending the hardware outputs to push the pixels to the top display if you want some different types of interaction. Though simply splitting the signal would probably satisfy 90% of the world and much less cost.
Wicked cool!

There you go!

This is cool as shit! Are there any open slots left? I’m 100% in on this!

Also, curious, does it display anything during attract mode?

THIS is how you unveil a video mod. Someone needs to take notes.

To me, the appeal is not only in the concept itself but more so the quality of animations that are already included. Once these start rolling out, I'd love to see a thread where people start sharing their custom animations.

#67 2 days ago

I'm in. Timing is great since I have my backboard removed from a recent topside teardown and was going to order a decal for it.

#68 2 days ago

Did you really have to make this for TZ?

Mine already has over 18+ mods and my wife is not going to be happy.

But please ** add me to the list ** for the first batch.

awesome work compy

with the CFTBL the screen could be the drive-in movie screen, drive-in entrance - so much potential

#70 2 days ago

Very very cool, you need to either license your hardware/software to pinballSP as he is unable to complete that part or buy his videos for the Creech mod

#71 2 days ago

just WOW

#72 2 days ago

Ridiculously cool execution of some ideas that have been partially implemented for years. Love it.

If you build for Metallica, your inbox might break.

#73 2 days ago

AWESOME!!! Well done, this is way cool and love the detailed promo video - great way to capture the market.

Looking forward to seeing what you have planned for STTNG

#74 2 days ago

Love this. I'm interested, but not until the later batches. Can't do it right now.

Let me just chime in with the others and say that a creech window mod is necessary. I'd buy that over this honestly.

I'm in. Was a price point mentioned anywhere?

Too cool, count me in!

Congrats, compy! It looks amazing!

For those who don't know Jimmy, he's one of the most talented developers and nicest guys in the entire industry. Buy with confidence.

Good morning all,

I've spent the last few hours responding to emails, PMs and answering questions and I promise I'll get to all of you. The count right now is actually not even just one batch, but three batches in the first 24 hours so I'll tell you what I'm going to do:

  • I'm going to ship the first 20 in the next 2.5-3 weeks when parts arrive and assembly begins. Those who have expressed interest and received confirmation will be contacted and we'll arrange the details.
  • I'm going to go ahead NOW and order parts for another couple batches so that they get here in pretty close proximity to the other batch going out
  • I'm going to get the first 20 into the hands of customers. I need to make sure everything arrives and installs with relatively low friction so that everyone feels like a rockstar through this experience. Once everyone feels good, we'll proceed to the remaining batches and general availability.

This morning I'm working on getting the rest of the responses to interested parties out, and then getting our final controller PCB design fabbed and ready for you.

Now, regarding the demand for Creech. Lots of people have asked for the window mod. I know MikeD did it back in the day, then a few others have attempted so far. I'm getting a better idea of where the snags were, and I offer the following:

  • After the TZ run is well underway, I'm happy to either work with the creators of that mod to get it into the marketplace utilizing our control system with no delays or problems.
  • If that can't or won't work, I'm happy to make something utilizing artwork that does not cause issue with Universal Pictures or Planetary Pinball. I've worked on teams that have licensed content through PPS, so there are avenues to make that happen.

As with all of our products, there will be the ability to customize the content to your liking. I know there are some animators and videographers out there with some chops. Obviously if you want to contribute, feel free to reach out and we can make it mutually beneficial a-la ColorDMD. Just understand my plan for that is out several weeks at least so I can get everyone what they ordered.

Happy to have everyone on board, and I'm even happier to make some cool stuff with you all! This and the future game list is exciting!

-- Jimmy

Where have you been all my life? Bravo, sir!

#88 2 days ago

Damn son! Thats some impressive work. Most likely the coolest mod I've seen! The game integration is top notch.
I wish I had a TZ. So many games would look baddass with this.

#89 2 days ago

Hoooooot dog we might get a creech mod yet.

#90 2 days ago

Looks good. Could you please make another video from the player perspective, standing in front of the game.

Also, I'm 100% sure that we will see porn on that display sooner rather than later with the easy customization feature.

Oh, I'm positive that this is bangerjay 's retirement plan.

#97 2 days ago

I think you meant "Eew" if not "Eeeeeew" ... especially if taking about porn. (Even more )

#98 2 days ago

Add me to the list of people who would like to see you get involved, take over or make your own Creech window mod!

#99 2 days ago

You might as well add me in there also. Whats money if you cant enjoy it.

#100 2 days ago

Extremely cool - please add me to the list. What sort of display are you using (i.e. what sort of black levels/contrast can we expect?) How are you determing the game state?
