Best of luck, Mike!
Quoted from TimeBandit:
So, my store is still closed and I'm getting more direct enquiries regarding when I will be open again.
Here is the whole story. If you care.
redshiftLED is about to be reborn.
I have been working on a hardware/software product for a corporate client that, if successfully completed will fund my pinball business many, many times over. The product has emerged from my pinball work but has nothing to do with pinball. Everything has been engineered and demo'd, and now in final field testing stage.
What are the chances of it coming off? Well, I'm not counting any chickens yet, but I have already sold one piece of software to them for which they have fully paid and taken delivery. So, I guess I'm a software developer now, haha! We have a relationship, they have bought already, and they want what I've built.. So I guess you might call that about a 10-15% chance of happening?
I'm leaving the store closed until this is done, but when it reopens all will be bigger and better.
Cross fingers for me.
That's awesome. Super happy for your success. Your attention to detail is what makes people want what you make!
Well figured I’d check back in this thread. It’s been like almost 6 months since your store closed & you took a break from pinball? Is that right? Hard to believe. I’ve pretty much given up all hope of that Ironman kit ever getting completed. Almost 2 years now. What a shame, it had so much potential. An update would be nice, but sounds like you’ve moved onto other things.
Hey guys. I'm slowly reopening things. At the moment I am only stocking Metallica TLS kits and Stern SAM knocker hook up kits. I am only selling through the Pinside shop for now and my website store will be out for another few weeks.
I am working on getting a bunch of Tron TLS kits ready. When they are ready and in stock I will reopen the web store.
Alien products will roll out over the months following.
Development of previous projects will pick up steam again in the second half of the year.
I've been looking for a Stern Sam knocker kit. I'm not fond of the screech. I'm glad to see you have these in stock.
Yes it is. It is a long shot, but I think I can get the sounds going independently. I am experimenting with an amp playing my sounds through the speakers. It’s not in official development as I don’t want to get peoples’ hopes up, but I’m very keen to get this working.
It’s not about colour on the inserts, it’s about control. I can hijack the control of the matrix and have the inserts sync with the GI for playfield sweeps, explosions, rotations etc.
Quoted from koops:
Each time I get a for sale notification I hold my breath to see if you’re listing an Ironman and stopping any further dev.
Each time I go to sell a pinball machine I walk straight past the Iron Man. Fear not.
