Glad this got going. Gives me something to look forward to on the weekends.
Everytime I saw something needed to be tweaked on p5, my mind read twerk for some reason. Thank you for not twerking.
Quoted from pinballrockstar:
While Dick is studying Startrek,i am welding and grinding this pole to higher level
He was playing star wars...not startrek. To a nerd over the pond that's like nails on a chalk board keep up the good work fellas. Following this one like I did despicable me. Gives me something to look forward to hung over on sat or sun morning.
If you guys are keeping this build neat, should get a set of RJ45 crimps and some ends. Cut that rats nest of yellow ethernet cable to the length you need and re-terminate them. Would be a cleaner appearance. Not sure how many of them you need / there are - but if there's a lot you could color code them for easier trouble shooting too. Yellow = sound. Green = lights. Red = power, etc.
Good job - look forward to these updates weekly.
You guys need to resend a better pic on what you need them to remove. It was kinda dark, but I feel like those looked like torx, not Allen head screws. If they are, no amount of Allen wrenches will remove them...wrong bit.
Start button idea: gargoyle with an open mouth. Make the start button recessed so you have to stick your finger in to press the button. Every x % of games, program in a light shock. The crazy lord with the watchful eye trying to scare you away. Tie the shocks in with an evil laugh outta the game
Actually..if someone can 3d print one...red led's on the eyes would be pretty cool too...
ever consider lighting them sequentially in order so it looks like they, or the ufo is spinning?
Dunno if they make em small enough - here in the US back in the day there were toy guns and the like that when you "shoot" them, there was a plastic little thingy that had sparks in it. Going with the run down look..it'd be cool if you found one and rigged it to the PAM so that when it went red it "sparked". Or even something like a short gapped spark plug from a car...
May be too late. Not sure if the cemetary thing got scrapped or not....lost track. Launching and coming up the bottom of the cemetery like rising from the dead would be cool...
Merry xmas all...
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?
Happy to be caught up. Over on this side of the pond we finally got some nice weather in the north east. Lookin good as always. Can definitely tell yall are car guys. Nothing sexier than matte black and copper.
Gotta plan a start time so those of us around the world can join in spirit with the safety meeting when y'all do.
Been way way way behind. Like..page 165 behind. Just caught up. Nice progress. Suggestion to throw shade at Stern and compliment Elvira's..assets. When you're waiting for a player to plunge a ball..kinda like in Metallica when Sparky calls out to hurry up - you could have a head be like "Hey. Hey you. If you're waiting for Elvira to show up with her chest full of toys, you're at the wrong mansion. Now focus your eyes where they belong and plunge a ball already."
