    Is the planet supposed to be turned 90 degrees?

    Quoted from aobrien5:

    Ha ha ...i didnt notice.
    Its ok Arthur has his towel to keep warm.
    Still there's no right way up in space.

    #359 3 years ago

    Looks sweet!! When I read this I imagined it in a voice just like the narrator from the movie.

    Quoted from kaboom: Its ok Arthur has his towel to keep warm.

    Can't wait to see the end result. You are really knocking this out the park.

    And the second ten million years, they were the worst too.

    Looks AWESOME!

    #364 3 years ago

    Super effort in true Aussie fashion. Will look forward to playing it this weekend.

    #365 3 years ago

    had a game today and lots of unique features and a nice large lcd and lots of small lcd's behind ramps and inserts.

    didn't know what I was doing but great effort

    #366 3 years ago

    Any video?

    #367 3 years ago

    The final playfield art was not done in time so it had a v1 temp vinyl.
    upshot i didn't want a video of it.
    One will be posted shortly when it's complete.

    #368 3 years ago

    are you intending to try to get this manufactured? Homepin perhaps? I think Mike said they'd do contract work some time ago.

    So much work seems to have gone into this.

    There is a plan in the works to make 5 machines ( a little pulled back hardware wise )but no-one has been lined up to code the game....anyone interested?

    Seems like it'd be fairly annoying to code without the game (virtual or physical) to work with? I've programmed simple games with just a pinmame style grid output and it's not fun

    Quoted from zacaj:

    yes sorry... Australian coder otherwise its just silly.

    #372 3 years ago

    Thanks for taking to Newcastle Pinfest, I had a lot of fun playing, Keep my name as an interested buyer when you go into manufacture, please. Also, I can still hear that train and whip cracking from The Lawman! I know one person who would snap that one up for his man cave lol.

    Animation for basic Multiball

    shots 1 towel,2 bugblatter,3 babel fish,4 cup of tea,

    All shots require 7 activations to light

    rules

    stage 1 , collect any 1 of 4 to light multiball [ more maybe collected ]
    stage 2 , collect any 2 of 4 to light multiball [ more maybe collected ]
    stage 3 , collect any 3 of 4 to light multiball [ more maybe collected ]
    stage 4 , collect all 4 to light multiball
    stage 5 , collect all 4 mini wizard mode>scoring multiplied.

    depending on how many shots are collected depends on how many balls
    qualify for multiball and which animation plays.

    think of this as an extension of Medieval Madness

    Skill Shot animations

    #381 3 years ago

    Shouldn't the vertical line in the first one be going from bottom to top just like the up post does?

    #382 3 years ago
    Quoted from aobrien5:

    I felt the same way on that.

    #383 3 years ago

    Thanks guys
    I tried it the other way and it looked backwards like it wasn't showing you where the shot is.
    I will check with some locals and see if in the flesh they don't get it.

    Lock up the dog before playing this...

    THE TOTAL PERSPECTIVE VORTEX MULTIBALL ANIMATION

    Definitely something "Strange" about this

    #386 3 years ago

    I don't remember that part.

    That said, I would sell my whole collection to buy this game if it were being produced.

    I love this! The total perspective vortex is one of the cooler parts of the series, and you really did it justice.

    Please don't really use a clip from a marvel movie in hitchhikers. Really would pull you out if the experience. Maybe your post was just being sarcasitic, it's a good concept

    I don't know how you are able to keep adding more stuff to this game! Can we get an under side pic to see how crammed it is?
