    Let’s look at the code,the other day,i was in my car and this cool song came on...you guys likely never heard of this guy...”Herman Brood and his wild romance”,he sorta jumped off the Hilton hotel when the going got tough,but he made some damn good music....wanna make a new music sequence with the heads,plus i got a cool idea with the paranormal activity meters...it occured to me,they álso look like old skool equalizers of our getto blasters from back in the 90’s
    I have a great idea!

    The song is called “white” or “ i don’t wanna be white no more”.
    Which suits our 2 ultra white ghosts
    Just downloaded it and converted to .ogg file.

    Really Cool!!!!!

    #7017 5 months ago

    Hey thanks bro,wait till you see it running together with the song...working on it,i guess another hour or so...
    I am syncing the heads with the lyrics at the moment.

    #7018 5 months ago

    It’s gonna be allright..

    image (resized).jpg
    #7019 5 months ago

    These are all servo movements to sync the mouths with the lyrics...a lot of it is copy and paste stuff.
    The song loosely repeats the same line in the audio clip i cut.
    I’ll polish it later,just getting the rough framework in..
    Bear with me...

    You wanna know how loud it is over here on friday?

    #7021 5 months ago

    Should the lights above the slings be flipped? green - all is well (at the bottom). yellow danger close. red (at the top) paranormal activity? It seems like the green and red should be swapped no?

    No you are pursuing low paranormal activity from Lord Grimm.
    So you are actually working towards green.
    So the PAM starts being in the red and slowly turns green through shots on the playfield.
    I understand what you mean,i see it too now...but that’s the idea!

    #7028 5 months ago

    Above my blue ruler you see three things happening in one command:
    -right head’s mouth opens halfway
    -right head’s eyes go center position
    -left head(all command without letter ‘r’ are autmatically the left head) opens eyelids

    Almost there...

    Allright,been polishing the code for the heads all weekend.
    Added facial movement to the left head, eraticated a bunch of horrible off sync motions....and what i like the most myself,at some points when the right head sings the word ”white” and “more” , i move the mouth open and quickly halfopen to simulate Herman Brood’s “2 tone whine” in that word.

    We did some thinking this weekend and you know what?
    We really think these mechanical things in a pinball machine are way more attractive and cool than all these modern points of view with tiny lcd’s on the playfield and such.
    We like shooting a physical mansion,a trapdoor in a ramp,an electro magnetic capture by a ufo on the playfield way better than all the digital stuff and molded toys that don’t add anything to the game.
    Pinball is all about: “ where did the ball go now?” And where will it appear again?
    It’s also fun to try and get to another level playfield.
    Pinball is mechanical....that’s what we love about pinball...
    Sure we have a big lcd too...but the mechanics in the crazy mansion are nuts and make us smile everytime.

    #7040 5 months ago

    That is so freakin cool guys. Love what you did to sync that all together. Another great entertaining build. Think I will watch that vid again. Awesome guys.

    #7041 5 months ago

    That’s great, but now I have that song stuck in my head again! .

    Exactly. Did you guys see this thread: https://pinside.com/pinball/forum/topic/where-is-the-innovation-in-the-last-decade ? My answer (in post #30) was right here in the Crazy Mansion build.

    robin, how do we get #CM and/or #crazy mansion populated with this game?

    We had a great laugh ourselves

    Just the beginning of something way bigger!

    Quoted from swinks:

    very cool guys - you all are the back box masters

    Thanx,the job offer wasn’t taken yet,we gladly applied

    Quoted from OLDPINGUY:

    Damn Sweet! Better than a Gobstopper!

    That gobstopper is silly, i love the Gene Wilder Willy Wonka though...the Johnny Depp version doesn’t even excist in my mind.
    Gene Wilder and Richard Prior are heroes of mine...if i watch “see no evil hear no evil” today,i still go out of breath laughing

    I believe in total,it’s 363 lines of code to make the heads sing that song..
    I need to write like 50 more of these sequences

    Quoted from Marten:

    That’s great, but now I have that song stuck in my head again! .

    Ha! What about us poor amigos...we tested it 500 times step by step.
    The song is part of our DNA now

    Yeah,i replied to that,very cool you posted that man...we need mechanics and subways and layers of playfield and talking heads!
    We don’t need no stinking wifi in a pinball machine.
    Dialed In is absolutely a masterpiece but where is the soul man...i’m not feeling it Jersey Jack..i love you man but you are trying too hard.
    Stern lacks soul too,Iron Maiden LE is the first good Stern machine imo,love it!
    It is a fast,no bullshit machine,great mechs and all the flippers are capable of amazing angles and shots...
    But on the other hand,who am i to judge and what do i know.
    Everybody has different taste.
    Maybe i am getting old and grumpy and Bally religious..

    very cool team amigo's and totally agree with you on the game experience and interaction,

    and the game I doing is just going to have score displays - mainly because I can't program .....

    You're just in love with it because it started life as a HomeBrew.
    We'll see if game#2 lives up to the hype.

    Dude,mission pinball framework is so easy to work with,trust me,you CAN program. Just throw in a starter kit from Fast pinball and make your own rules.

    Yeah,well i hardly knew anything about the Archer project until quite recently..but i guess i felt the homebrew heartbeat in Iron Maiden instantly.
    I know a little more about Archer now...i think Keith is a giant.

    You can make smaller shows and repeat them.

    Something like Intro_show.yaml, Verse_show.yaml, Chorus_show.yaml, Bridge_show.yaml, Exit_show.yaml
    Then have another show like Song.yaml
    That calls the other shows:
    intro, verse, chorus, verse, chorus, bridge, verse, chorus, exit
