Wow thank you both for the nice comments.

#52 13 days ago

I'm enjoying watching the progress. Looks like a cool layout and it's definitely a very cool theme!

luvthatapex2 - I live in Plumsteadville, so not too far from North Wales! I'm happy to be a beta tester for you!!!! :^)

#53 13 days ago

What a great project and idea. Artwork and playfield layout seems great and well thought. I love the theme too. I wish LOV to succeed . Look forward for a video on gameplay and see the final artwork package. Congrats.

We thought it might be fun to give some Code glimpses along the way. The first feature we will describe is Hurryups.

During regular gameplay (outside of the battles) we have 3 monster hurryups (among other hurryups) but I'll concentrate on the rules around these hurryups today.

Monster hurryups are started by hitting 3 standup targets during regular gameplay (left ramp standup, center ramp standup, under ship standup).
This starts one of 3 monster hurryups - JOTNAR, TROLLS or DWARVES. 30 seconds on the timer to make as many shots as possible
JOTNAR = RAMPS
TROLLS = LOOPS
DWARVES = SPINNER

During the hurryups the BERZERKER target pops up during certain times. Hitting this target extends the hurryup timer.

When all 3 monster hurryups have been played, one of the TASK inserts is lit and subsequent monster hurrups are RANDOMLY selected and
worth 2X, then 3X, then 4X, etc.

RAMPS, LOOPS and SPINNERS qualify other features of the game besides racking up points:
(COMBOS, VALKYRIES, THORS HAMMER, WAR ON LAND TASK)

So for instance, during JOTNAR, you could potentially score points, score combos, award a valkyrie (more on this later), award the war at sea task and extend the fun by hitting the Berzerker target when it rises.

I like what you're describing... and to think this is just a "glimpse". Very excited to see how the project unfolds!!

Looking great, are you going to have modes to sack various cities around Europe? Or are you strictly going the viking mythology route.

Fun fact- all weekday names except for Saturday are derived from the viking gods.

Boy thats a good segway into the next code glimpse! Stay tuned.

Quoted from Mr68:

I get what you're saying and remember those days well. But after meeting Scott and Frank in person during that murky time, I went ahead anyway and put a deposit down. When things didn't materialise for the WOOLY build to happen, Scott immediately refund my money, no hesitation, no excuses.
These guys are solid and if they did an old style pre-order today, I wouldn't hesitate to go with them.
Scott - Frank.
I'm incredibly pleased to see you guys resurrect yourselves. After a set-back, that's a true sign of being a champion. Please put me on any potential buyers list and I will follow with interest. - Kim

I’m a little bit of a poster child for boutique pins. Love the idea of getting something that’s not mass produced.

1) Captain Nemo didn’t want to deal with overseas orders customs etc.
2) Predator $250 deposit got refunded before everything imploded.
3) Jpop Retro Zombie game bought someone’s spot to get in but got out full refund before everything imploded.
4) Woolly was interest but didn’t get to ordering stage
5)TBL and Alien never got a good vibe was waiting for production to start before buying.
6) TNA finally got a boutique pin that delivers fun and quality product.

Our next code feature we'd like to reveal is RAID!

RAID is a 3 ball multiball that starts during regular play when you have collected 35 vikings in your raiding party.
You collect vikings by completing the R-A-I-D letters in the inlane/outlanes and the count carries forward on subsequent balls.
An indicator onscreen is always displaying the number in your raiding party.

The objective is to pillage the villages of their treasure (points).
There are 11 villages in total and you can continue to the next village if you have pillaged all from that village
(completed all 10 shots.)

Without ruining all the discovery the villages are entitled real names that existed in viking times like
'Vinland','Faroer','Shetland',etc and each village has color coded shots.

Play continues until you have one ball remaining on the playfield, after which you return to regular gameplay.

Fear not because you can RAID another time if you collect 80 vikings in your raiding party!

Frank, perhaps I missed it, but I see you mentioning the display here. Have you guys decided on a style and size of the display for the game at this point?

We're using the 15.6" HD LCD display that pinball life offers on their website. We'll be showing off a sample screen image in the next couple of weeks once we get it more polished and refined.

Fridays code feature reveal CONQUEST!

We spoke of four of the 8 tasks before (weapons, raiders, combos and war on land(all monster hurryups achieved)), Conquest is another task and perhaps the most difficult task required to reach the wizard mode VALHALLA. We think of Vikings as ruthless, tough, skilled, but history has shown us there were more qualities to the Viking than we may realize. In the game we have 8 qualities of a Viking that you need to achieve through gameplay. When all 8 Qualities are achieved, you'll be awarded a huge payout, light the CONQUEST task and be one step closer to VALHALLA. Qualities carry forward on subsequent balls like all TASKS.

Courage - loops
fidelity - right ramps
truth - left ramps
honor - center ramps
reliance - berzerker shots
discipline - spinners
perseverance - blood rage target
hospitality - ship target

CONQUEST ACHIEVED! 7 more tasks for VALHALLA!

#64 11 days ago

This looks great. I love the theme.

#65 10 days ago

Floating funeral pyre match sequence?

Find the USA wizard mode?

#66 10 days ago

Wow. This theme look and sound absolutely awesome.
Your rules sounds fantastic too. Artwork will be great.
Hope I can play it some day in germany.

#67 9 days ago

Hey, thats an interesting idea. I haven't coded the MATCH sequence yet, hmmmm

Quoted from PinPatch:

#68 9 days ago

Burning ship does sound cool for the match sequence. I'd like to have a couple actually, like maybe one where someone's getting a blood eagle and as they get strung up in the air the dripping blood on the ground forms the match numbers... i think we had 3? match sequences for WOOLY...

Are you going to have a whitewood at tpf or mgc? If you need help with transport to tpf, I know Ltg is making the drive. Otherwise, if you can get it to spooky I can bring it to tpf, then to mgc and you can take it home from there. I would only charge 1 translite to go with my wooly one.

#70 9 days ago

WOOLY had a non-standard playfield width, didn't it - between standard and Superpin. Is one of the reasons you opted for standard size the compatibility in case somebody wanted to pick it up for manufacture?

#71 9 days ago

I had a lot of questions about this game and t-800 was nice enough to chat with me today about the game. If you want to hear what he had to say check it out here.

I can haul it there and back if you need Scott.

I leave Wednesday night after I close. If you want it to go with, get it to me before then.

Thanks for all the offers guys! Right now the whitewood is mounted securely in the rotisserie and is awaiting the cabinet to be completed. First public play testing will likely be at Expo this year.

Quoted from EalaDubhSidhe:

WOOLY was actually designed and built on the same playfield size as the William's Superpin's of the early 90's, nothing "non-standard" so to speak. But yes, one of the bigger factors in why we chose a standard body design was to improve the manufacturing compatibility of the game in the event another manufacturer wanted to pick the game (or layout) up. It was also nice that everything we wanted to fit into the game shots wise seemed to fall into place with the standard playfield sizing.

#75 9 days ago

Both this and WOOLY look like they are going to be a lot of fun. Definitely keeping tabs on both!

#76 9 days ago

I was wondering if you could put in some flame LEDs into the Viking ship to simulate when it catches fire or is destroyed.

In the game the Viking ship will be a vehicle for the raiders going to battle at sea so we won't be destroying the ship or catching it on fire. The Vikings need the ship to take them raiding and pillaging!

However, there will be several lighting effects on the entire playfield done with the rgb LEDs and fire is one of them.

Today's code feature .... Tier II Legends

So you've made it your quest to collect a few more weapons for your arsenal. Time to battle four more Legends of Valhalla.
These 4 battles are single ball, time based challenges using color coded shots around the playfield.

Leanan Sidhe - beautiful muse that drove men crazy! Quickly shoot the center ramp for a countdown bonus, then 3 other shots will light for the challenge.

Jormungandr - dragon - here you'll drill the spinner until the dragon is stunned, then light the shooter lane, followed by a kill shot at the center top rollover. Miss the kill shot and you'll relight the shooter lane for another kill shot, but do it quickly before the sands of time run out!

Dullahan - headless horseman with human spine for a whip. Escape his clutches and destroy the head. 2 leading shots and several quick shots to the center ramp give you distance from the Dullahan. Enough distance away and you can shoot the spinner to destroy the head defeating the Dullahan.

Kraken - Ramps and orbit shots defeat this sea monster, but beware, he'll be using the magnet to whip your ball around and keep you from your quest!

#80 8 days ago

There's a lot of Celtic stuff in the game, I notice.

I noticed that as well. Celtic lore would make for a great pin theme in its own right.

#83 8 days ago
Quoted from EalaDubhSidhe:

Yeah, the Vikings and the Celts shared a lot and influenced each other quite a bit. I imagine there will be some overlap of the two in the game. I tried to pick characters and imagery that I thought looked cool and was relevant and am bringing it into the game.

#84 8 days ago

I am very intrigued by this. If a great and professionel looking project from home brewer, with a fresh look layout and innovation, was not enough. As a Scandinavian, the theme is of course highly interesting. And you seem to know you way around this.

I wonder, is the theme the vikings and legends of that era. Or the mythology. The spiritual and the religious known from that era. Or if the game will try to strike a balance between the two.

In other words. Historical events of Northern Europe and the Atlantic circa the years 800 to 1100, as they are believed to have happened. Or the gods of the people of that era.

Anyway it is cut, the game seems very well researched. And an impressive dedicated efford so far.

Today's code feature reveal .... RAMPAGE

While we all love modes and tasks, we also want everyone to have fun playing with any skill level. RAMPAGE is another regular game play feature.

RAMPAGE - While not in a mode, hurry-up or multi-ball, Every center ramp shot preceded by another shot spells one letter of R-A-M-P-A-G-E. Last qualifying shot for RAMPAGE starts the RAMPAGE insert blinking purple. 4 letters are spotted at the beginning of each player. Subsequent RAMPAGE requires all 7 letters. WEAPONS, R-A-I-D and GOD OF THUNDER will stack with RAMPAGE, but not hurry-ups, combos, battles or multi-balls.

"Start Rampage" insert turns solid purple when RAMPAGE is spelled. "RAMPAGE!!!" audio clip plays and a display effect. The player then has 5 Seconds to hit any purple "arrow" shot (there are 11). If they successfully hit an arrow shot in the 5 Seconds, the arrow insert blinks slowly. The timer is then reset and they have 5 seconds to hit another arrow shot (can be the same one!). If it's a different arrow shot then the new arrow blinks slowly, if it's an arrow shot that's already been hit then the insert blinks fast. The 3rd shot to the same arrow turns the arrow off. You need to complete all arrows in order to reset the full bank of arrow shots (or use the hammer/Valkyrie - detail to discover on your own!).

Play continues until the timer runs out. If the player makes the same arrow shot 3 times during the RAMPAGE then the insert turns off. This shot no longer counts toward a rampage shot and resetting the timer. If at any time the player does not make an arrow shot before the timer expires, all arrows turn off and RAMPAGE is over, you get the total and continue regular game play.

Hint! Once you make 6 shots, the Berserker target pops up. Hitting the Berserker target resets all the shot arrows/timer!

Scoring: Arrow inserts are worth 175k points when shot. Second time to the same insert, that shot is worth 2X value. Third time to the same insert, that shot is worth 4X value. "RAMPAGE CHAMPION" is awarded for most points compared to the leader table and you'll enter initials as the new champ at the end of the game.

I don't know what function the tap on top the boat provides but .... can the boat cover be cut open to expose locked balls?

All flipper bats could use a cap or topper... how about some weapon themed caps?

In theory it can. I'm still working through the nitty gritty of the design of that - the bigger issue I see is potential airballs and as a result, stuck balls. a big open ship showing the locked balls is just asking for other stuck balls...

Plus, I'm hoping the cover is going to illuminate with some cool effects when I get to wiring in the lights.

#89 7 days ago

This looks fantastic! Maybe this will be the beginning of the Riot Pinball Ancient Mythology collection? Id love to see future designs with ancient Egyptian/Hindu/Mexican/Japanese etc settings. I’m now picturing an Aztec theme with a Quetzalcoatl dragon ramp locking balls in the Pyramid Of The Sun to start Sacrificial Multiball. But until then, I’ll just keep an eye on this thread.

I am getting excited about LOV reading all. If we are allowed to prospect for or speculate about future titles .. I’d love one based on Ninjas or Shaolin Monks. Something very Eastern.

I’m down! That, and/or samurai. Lots of ideas with grappling hooks, swords, knives and stealth missions. Magnets and ramps would resemble martial arts moves. Maybe in 2020.

Really neat how you used a 3D prints to make the protos, especially to hold the wire forms in place.

#94 6 days ago
Quoted from mbwalker:

Really neat how you used a 3D prints to make the protos, especially to hold the wire forms in place.

Ah, yeah, I designed a little clip that seems to work really well with stock 1/8" rod from local hardware stores. I glued down my wireform path profiles to a piece of plywood, placed screws at all of the bends, and then hand bent and worked the rod to form the habitrail path I wanted. After that I simply slid those brackets over the two outer rods and then snapped into place the two main rods that the ball rides on. There's just enough clearance that the ball doesn't contact the plastic printed part anywhere, although I would avoid placing the brackets on corners/curves etc. - the ball may have enough momentum through the turns to bring it in contact at those points. Anyway, it's not a permanent solution, but something quick and dirty I was able to do before I get the final wireforms officially made and welded, etc.

If anyone wants the .stl file for their own projects just email me at scott@riotpinball.com and I'll be happy to share it.

Today's code reveal - MULTI-BALL!

So far you've heard of a variety of tasks, battles, hurry-ups but what about the multi-balls?
Fear not we have a nice sprinkling of 10 multi-balls in the game. 2 ball, 3 ball, 4 ball, 6 ball, yep, they're in there!
Add a ball? Of course! You'll find this along your journey too.

Besides the fact that multi-ball is fun, it's also useful for:
- combos that can only be made during multi-ball
- hitting shots that would be difficult during single ball
- hitting dangerous shots that might drain, so you have a spare ball keeping the action going - Take the chance!
- multi-shot battles that require lots of shots. more balls, expect more shots in the battle!

Here is a list of the multi-balls:
Battles - (5) of the (16) battles are multi-ball battles
Raid multi-ball
Rage multi-ball
War at Sea / Viking (ship multi-balls)
(2) Wizard mode multi-balls

For those that think this is multi-ball heavy, you'll be relieved to hear 1/3 of the game content consists of MB while 2/3 of the content is single ball play.
So go ahead and enjoy your multi-balls, you'll have plenty to do in single ball play.
