    Quoted from toyotaboy:

    glad to see things are turning around.

    Thanks! 2018 has been a tough year in this house, but things are definitely getting better.

    Really looking forward to some family and pinball time over the holidays. Once I get Spaceballs done the focus shifts to Rick & Morty.

    The Amigos could take a lesson in neat cabling from you, for sure!

    PLEASE
    ...Tell me someone is making a Three Amigos pinball.

    #754 1 year ago

    Yeah, sort of a Junk Yard kind of thing where they need to get hold of donor machines and scrap to build pinballs. And with road trips, whiskey hoarding, racking up days without incidents for bonus... There is so much material already!!

    Quoted from Coyote:

    Nah, referring to the Pinball Amigos. The guys doing Minions and Crazy Mansion

    3 Amigos would be fun though!

    Got the current playfield completely stripped, getting ready to start putting everything on the new one.

    An explosion of parts all over what is normally the CNC router.

    Comparison of the current playfield that I just stripped on the left, and the new one on the right.

    Been a while since I posted, but I've been working very steadily toward having the game finished in time for SFGE in Atlanta in July.

    The latest playfield is in the game and 100% working, I am working through all the code now.

    Here is my latest revision of the cabinet art.

    #762 1 year ago

    Looking great! Can't wait to see the playfield art.

    Unfortunately, living in Denmark, i'll probably never get to play it. But it really is something of a dream theme for me!

    Just curious did you go with a repurposed bally/williams board setup or something other like heighway pinball did with computer for your hardware?

    Quoted from PinDeLaPin:

    I used the FAST pinball hardware (http://fastpinball.com/) and the Mission Pinball Framework software (http://missionpinball.org/). It does have a computer inside it running Windows and MPF.

    Quoted from Phantasize:

    I'll post the playfield art in the next few weeks. Art is my weakest skill by far as you can tell, so don't expect anything amazing. It'll be what I am capable of and I'll just be happy with that.

    Hopefully for those who never get to play it in person, I can post some videos to share all the fun things I think are in it. This is my very first game design too, so it might be like the superbowl where it's better to see it on TV than actually be there, hahahaha.

    Very cool for sure. I'm sure it will be great however it turns out. Hell theres no way I could ever pull something like this off. Major props to you and I cannot wait to see some live video of it.

    Welp, the time has come for me just to go with what I've got for the playfield art. I think it turned out great for my first attempt. The upper areas of the playfield are intentionally pretty empty and dark.

    Feedback is welcomed, I am ordering it from the printer later tonight after some final tweaks.

    thats not half bad.. theres always more you could add but it looks clean

    #768 1 year ago

    This game is gonna be awesome, hope I can put my hands on it one day.

    Feedback on art:

    Maybe add some milky way wispy type trails through the shots/behind the stars to sauce it up a bit?

    It would be cool if you could do stars like this poster. This pattern may help your tractor beam blend in a little better too.

    Other than that, looks great.

    Thanks for the feedback! I will see what I can do to incorporate some of this, I especially like the idea of putting in some wispy trails and stuff!

    how would this ever have a chance at replication?

    Quoted from krispyk577:

    It doesn't as far as I'm concerned.

    If it does, it won't be by my hands. I've got two new custom games waiting after this one is done.

    Maybe in a future time, in a galaxy not that far away, I could see something......

    For now, I've made a self-imposed deadline to finish Supernatural pinball in time for the 15th season/series end. I've got to get cranking on it as soon as Spaceballs is done.

    "12345" targets should be "P" "L" "A" "I" "D"

    #780 1 year ago

    Thanks everyone!

    Quoted from Hobbypinball:

    "12345" targets should be "P" "L" "A" "I" "D"

    The ramp goes to plaid. Just shoot it 4 times.

    1-2-3-4-5? That's the stupidest combination I've ever heard of in my life! That's the kinda thing an idiot would have on his luggage!

    Makes perfect sense on the Druidian Air Shield though.

    Please take good video of gameplay this year

    Quoted from toyotaboy:

    I actually bought some streaming gear in hopes of taking some good video, mainly for me to be able to review gameplay for bugs, but I'll definitely share the videos and some live streams.

    If you are ever in the area you know you have an invite too.

    Yogurt is over on the right about mid way up, shooting his flamethrower. He has a whole target and scoop.
