    Mirco I am working on this title. Do not want to waste hundreds or more on this project if you have it in the works.

    "Mirco, I am working on this title."

    Love all you hard work greatwich. A toast to future playfields.

    Sweet! Will this be the official thread for all things big game playfields? Thanks

    #4 10 months ago

    Hopefully so Mirco is a wild card in his wanting to be the only dominant playfield producer. The small guys & even CPR can be hurt by his producing the same title at the same time! I am just trying to focus on doing playfields that no one is interested in making. I will post the Big Game Playfield developement progress here. Here is the initial file being used which needs help. https://drive.google.com/file/d/1vGFbm0cXq9HDgREJPaD5M-snQeMnAAE9/view
    Carl in Halifax is trying to improve the art. A donor playfield is here in Halifax to use to check art & do cnc. Test print on clear film has been done, & I will get on Monday.

    this is amazing news. my only stern keeper will be getting a upgrade.

    #6 10 months ago

    Great News John!

    I am definitely on the interested list. I'll be watching your progress -- not sure what I can do to help but if there is a way I'll offer it!

    I'd even send you my playfield if it would help (of course I'd have to yank it out of the cabinet)!

    I have a extra original if he needs it, might save you a little trouble

    #8 10 months ago

    Yep. I’m on the 100% will pay in full once they are available to ship. Not willing to prepay though, for obvious reasons.

    #9 10 months ago

    I will buy one from the first person who gets it to market.

    #10 10 months ago

    Did someone say Big Game playfield?
    Outstanding!

    #11 10 months ago

    Im interested as well

    #12 10 months ago

    I'm buying. Was just saying the other day how I'm in if there is a repro made.

    #13 10 months ago

    Art is being worked on locally.

    #14 10 months ago

    I am in for sure. Put me on the list.

    #15 10 months ago

    That starter art scan is only 200dpi, doesn't scan have to be 300-600dpi to get a good final print quality?
    Or is that just a low rez version for easier viewing here?
    It looks good zoomed in on photoshop!

    #16 10 months ago

    Note: I just realized that Big Game art work/fonts are done by hand...
    ------ The fonts are not all centered into the round lens/inserts...
    ------ Question; is the artwork going to be better center aligned ?
    ------ or is the art work going to be asis?

    #17 10 months ago

    Nice, glad this is being done!

    #18 10 months ago

    following

    #19 10 months ago

    looks like you are going to get to do my playfield swap.

    #20 10 months ago

    I believe the file is better than 200 dpi. It needs a lot of work but it is under way by Carl here in Halifax.

    #21 10 months ago

    Definitely following !

    I'll buy one and I don;t even own one....yet.

    Now THAT'S planning ahead!

    #24 10 months ago

    Hey John. Once the art is done, can you post it here so we can give it a once over and make sure it looks okay?

    Thanks!

    #25 10 months ago

    If people would like to check on the finished art file please pm me & I will see. With all the stuff going on lately with Mirco & his non response to me. It is not safe to freely post up the finished work.

    #26 10 months ago

    Note: Ebay has NOS Big Game playfield that is damaged...
    But, most of the art work is good.

    #27 10 months ago

    Pass too much for me. Thanks

    #28 10 months ago

    The art will likely take some time to clean up.

    #29 10 months ago

    Talked with Carl cleaning up the art. Things are moving ahead. Here is the next 32 Seawitch cut playfields for me to work on with 24 Star Gazer.

    Nice! Just picked up Big Game too. Count me in.

    #36 9 months ago

    Any idea on cost and shipping to/within Canada

    #37 8 months ago

    I will look at all costs again when production is about to go. Art is still not finished.

    I am in for a playfield.

    #39 6 months ago

    Still waiting on a update on finished art. Price would be $800 US + shipping cost. There are other costs coming up with Classic Stern if licensing is required.

    OK I'm officially in.

    Thanks for the info gwj.

    Will you be posting the final art when it’s completed? I would like to see it before buying anything.

    Thanks.

    #43 6 months ago

    I would think final art will be posted up when done for a final check to see if any problems.

    #44 6 months ago

    Is there a waiting/wanting list to get on for this playfield?

    #45 6 months ago

    No wait list. We are into another 3 week stay in place in our province with Covid. Thought after over a 2+ week already we would be easing up this holiday weekend but no. People are not allowed to travel outside our county, or Province. I will update when I hear more about art corrections. I continue to get Seawitch & Star Gazer playfields ready for darker blue. Star Gazer ones still being printed this month with original version.

    I can't wrap my head around this type of government control. So glad I live in Tennessee.
