    Does anybody know the status of DK Pinball and the PIG 2 cards?

    I haven't heard anything from them, and their website says discontinued.

    Any info is appreciated!

    #2 3 years ago

    In a week or so I'll be putting up a feeler to gauge interest to see if I can get enough people looking for cards to cover order minimums.

    Ok. If I can come up with one second-hand, can you offer support for setting it up?

    I think you had some code written for slow, pulsing, and fast motor use. Also, what motor did you use? Did it supply the 12v for the motor from the Pig 2, or was the Pig 2 sending to a 'control' input on the motor/motor board?

    I'm looking for shaker motor install of F14. We had discussed it briefly over email, but that was a while and ago and I hadn't heard back from you.

    Would appreciate any info.

    How many do you need to sell to make a run?

    #5 3 years ago

    I'm thinking 15 would cover the costs.

    You can use the regular config for controlling a shaker motor.

    I used the shaker you can get from Pinball Life.

    I pulled 12v off the games power supply (Using a power tap). The shaker motor just plugs into the PIG 2.

    I was looking to pick up a PIG from you earlier. I am still interested if you make more.

    Thanks

    I'm in for a few as well..

    #9 3 years ago

    I'd take one for sure, just in case its not run again for awhile....

    Do you have the data for the settings you used? I seem to remember a low "pulsing" vibration, and a couple others that gave it variety.

    Please let me know what you can dig up. I'd like to use yours as a starting point to then fine tune for my application.

    Thanks!

    #11 3 years ago

    I'll take one

    #12 3 years ago

    I'd be in for at least one.

    #13 3 years ago

    I think these were $99 when they were available? How many do we need to buy to get the price down? Or is it really feasible?

    #14 3 years ago

    Put me in for 4!

    #15 3 years ago

    $99 was the black Friday price. Which I may do again when we get this next run done.

    I need to make a revision to the board which is going to take some effort to get it all re-created in a new CAD program, tested, etc. I'm just gauging right now because I don't want to pour another 50 - 100 hours into this thing and have 2 guys want them.

    Got it, so whats the price going to be? Give me an estimate. I want to order a lot of these for mods we are making.

    #17 3 years ago

    Im in for one if you do another run Mike.

    #18 3 years ago

    at 99$ i'd likely be in for 4 actually instead of 2

    #19 3 years ago

    I'm in for another, as well.....

    #20 3 years ago

    I eventually want to put a shaker in my whirlwind. I think using your board is the way to do it. I'm in for one.

    #21 3 years ago

    I might be in for one.

    #22 3 years ago

    Wish I had seen this earlier. I keep going to the website to see if there is a PIG3 or something. Didn't realize it's an order quantity issue. Is there a way to get on a waitlist for the next batch?

    #32 3 years ago

    I am interested also.

    #33 3 years ago

    I dont believe he is going to make these again, maybe we get lucky and he does a pig3 with a new design.

    Hope so...Mike's a great guy, probably a bit burnout ( I know he was having prob sourcing some parts, and I managed to make 2 of them lose their minds ( he was incredibly helpful, but ended up scratching our heads as to what was going on).

    I'm sure a pig3 would rock....
