Who from the show would do a good job with custom callouts?

Why not just use deepfake software and have custom callouts for any character?

Quoted from kvan99:

Holy shit! if this is true, Charlie missed a huge bullet by revealing first and locking in those 750 games.

I think they would of sold out not matter what else was released. The RaM theme is very strong, there hasn’t even been gameplay and people paid the locked in deposit.

Temper your expectations around assets and which seasons of the show are included.

Hopper is the obvious choice IMO, but he's a legit movie star guy now.

A stranger thing will be if these show up without playfield issues.

I have a Stranger Things pin, and a steak sandwich.

Quoted from Bearcat:

Killing the demogorgan with a pinball down his gullet would be a rather satisfying shot.[quoted image]

If you had to hit the demogoron, and then it'd open, THEN you hit the kill shot, that be the balls.

One tweak to the article on Stranger Things - it sounds like the movie projector feature will be only on the Premium/LE, not the Pro. Sorry about that.

Still will be colorful.

and the disappointment starts.... (just to be clear, not with you, just the cost-cutting to the pro)

#762 1 year ago

How do they make a less expensive pin (i.e a pro model) without cost cutting?

Ouch. Kinda makes me think that the projector is just a gimmick then rather than a core function of the game.

#764 1 year ago

Hmmm that might not be a bad thing, some probably won’t like the white parts/areas and the pro with full art will keep those people happy.

There’s also the chance the projection stuff isn’t all that good, if it’s not done brilliantly it could be quite disappointing so having a non projector/full art version isn’t a bad idea.

I wonder if it will be a legit projector showing animations or a laser show like on ST... you can do some fancy things with projected lasers but it wouldn't be the same.

#766 1 year ago

Cant wait for the reveal. I'm in. Will have to sell something if the reveal looks good.

Well some start with the Pro and then add shit on to make the LE.

Just make the differences cosmetic between the variable models. I know this isn't stern's routine, I get that, it just gets frustrating sometimes, especially on a theme I care about. JP missing the t-rex okay, same shot still does the same thing on the pro, I get it. But if you are saying the game is going to look and act differently on the premium/le models it is more frustrating.

I'm sure it is still going to be a ton of fun, and stern makes great stuff, just disappointing.

I think the projector is more cosmetic than anything. When you're in the school mode, stuff will look like the school...lockers for drop targets, hallway on the center building screen, whatever.

I don't think anything that's projected couldn't be communicated on the LCD, it's just more immersive in-line.

#771 1 year ago

If you need an idea of what they are attempting, go youtube halloween house projection mapping. I assume it is like this and the interactivity will coincide with this. It's a pretty cool idea actually. They will essentially be able to also create that snow/ash effect in the upside down with it as well.

#772 1 year ago

Damn no projector on the pro could be a deal breaker. That some really cool

I wouldn't call off your dogs yet, the projector could be a great idea and shitty IRL

Totally agree but it's a very unique mech that if done well would awesome

#775 1 year ago

Yea, it will be interesting to see how they implement it.

#776 1 year ago

I'm real interested in the light level needed for it too.

Yea but those house projection mappings are no joke, well done/developed, using expensive projector etc. It's not the same thing.

#778 1 year ago

I had high hopes with the GB Ecto Goggle implementation, wishfully thinking we'd get more than a handful of random ghosts displayed or more inclusiveness and game related functionality. But hey, we got JT's cat, yay!

This projector on ST sounds awfully familiar....

Seriously? It’s nothing like the ecto goggles. Haha

#780 1 year ago

I'm predicting reveal on the 23rd bc it's interesting this article not only comes out now but you can tell someone from Stern is reading it as they notified TWIP to change the premium features.... and likely allowing it to be printed by TWIP as general story vs only limited rumors.

wow the 2019 stranger things Halloween house projection mapping display live video is very impressive. I understand it wont be like this but this is some cool stuff for sure.

Playfield projection technology does not bode well for pinstadium...

Quoted from f3honda4me:

It 'could' be the same thing. Just speculating based off what little has been given so far. The possibilities are pretty cool because it's not a lot of space so you can do quite a bit of projection with not a very big footprint. However, yes, it is Stern, so hard to say what it will actually be like.

#784 1 year ago
Quoted from chuckwurt:

Reading the description, I'm not convinced that the functionality will be much more than Ecto Goggle-like. I hope I'm wrong.

#785 1 year ago

Wonder if best to play in dark with the projection. I tend to play with the lights on

Particularly because it’s Pre/LE only. Usually means half-arsed code integration.

#789 1 year ago

The ecto goggles is a small display that is reflected right? This is supposed to be a projection from what I am reading and not localized to one small area so it will be very different.

#790 1 year ago

I like what I'm reading. Been waiting for this one.
My only real hesitation is with it being yet another pin with a basic fan layout. I'm hoping it's got a lot going on to keep me interested. Fan layouts seem to lose my interest much faster than unique layouts do.
I'm excited for tuesday.

Edit..
My other concern is with playfield build quality

#791 1 year ago

Will the game have thin non existent clear coat or glossy beautiful clear with bubbling art?

Maybe a split cabinet, broken coil stop, power reset & ghosted insert?

Can’t wait!

He's talking about expectations vs reality... not mechs being similar

#793 1 year ago
Quoted from drfrightner:

I don't watch the show. I watched the first season and said wow the special fx are so bad, the plot makes no sense, but I gave it one more season. Season 2 was the worst it was impossible to even follow it. Someone said watch season 3 its the best, but I couldn't even watch season 2.

You must have been too distracted, trying to watch Stranger Things while studying for med school, Doc. Give it another go, and congrats on your PhD!

I beg to differ. Haha

#796 1 year ago

Do you all really think it's going to be anything more than this?

lightshow-christmas-light-projectors-115587-e1_1000 (resized).jpg

Or that you can get projection images focused at multiple different distances.. from the same source... in bright light conditions..

I'm thinking house lighting "projector" in black-out modes.. aka Star Trek but with a light stencil instead of the pen laser.

No. And that’s going to be awesome.

Looks very Drew Struzan, which is a good fit since Kyle Lambert did the Stranger Things season posters in the style of Drew.

That said, I'm not in love with photorealistic pinball art in general.

There is something to that. If it's too realistic then it juts looks like a picture, which takes you back to the photoshop days we weren't that happy with.
