Quoted from Chitownpinball:

Not at 7k! No way! This needs to be the first (full featured) 5k pin to come out.

Quoted from Whysnow:

5k is NEVER going to happen.

Seriously, Scott needs to get on here and school Pinside as to why this pin (on its current path) will never be a 5K pin. People need to understand that is not your, run of the mill, single level pinball machine. This is a very special machine that people need to see and play to understand. You may not think a single level old school looking machine could be worth 7k+, but I can tell you that this game is as fun (if not more fun) than a lot of the current games being offered today. That is saying A LOT considering the game isn't even finished yet.

Quoted from rotordave:

Mind you, last time I was at your house you had a whole pin in your closet!
A Gottlieb Going Nuts no less!!!

I am willing to bet that wasnt the only closet that had a pin in it. If he can fit a game in there he will!

Hurry up Scott, I want to see Fiero Fever

I thought it was Fast and Fieroest? Did he change the name again??

Quoted from fastpinball:

For sure. When ordering in larger quantities you can expect to shave ~15% off retail.
FAST Pinball

You only offer your customers 15% discount on large bulk orders? Geez Aaron, loosen up the purse strings a little bit.

#627 2 years ago
Quoted from fastpinball:

LOL. Well, the topic was not on our hardware.

I gotta ask man, if this topic isn't about your product then why are you posting what people can expect for discount percentages? They surly can't be based on P-ROC discounts because how the hell would you know what Gerrys margins are? So one can only assume you were talking about your own margins which you confirmed by posting more about your product in this thread. That was the point of my post. I didn't ask what your margins are nor does that even have any place in this thread. I was just poking fun at you. I didn't expect you to open up even more about it! Lol.

Quoted from Fytr:

Leave it to Spooky to show Stern the market exists for an early 80's-like game with simpler rules and gameplay, but with modern touches.
...queue the classic Stern "vault-editions" once this baby becomes a roaring success.

Yeah, but the rules and game play are far from simple. It just appears that way.

#685 2 years ago
Quoted from cooked71:

Like from the original 90's PC game?

Correct. Atari, just renewed the Total Annihilation license for that game in Feb of this year, so to stay out of trouble, they have changed the name. Although it will always be TA to most of us.

#686 2 years ago
Quoted from cooked71:

Anyone know from what game the original cab was stolen for the proto?

Dolly Parton

#715 2 years ago
Quoted from cooked71:

Really? That's great. On the podcast it sounded like it was the standard cab - maybe they meant a modified version.

It is a modified version of Spooky's cabinet. It will look great when finished!

Quoted from rubberducks:

and don't feel like what we've seen really matches the expressed vision.

That's weird, I feel the exact opposite. You know why that is? Because every ones perception is different. If you and I were both in 1980 and had to determine what the future would look like in 50 or 100 years our answers would be completely different. This is Scott's vision and this is what he perceives our leading lady thinks the future will look like. Its not wrong or right, but what I can tell you is that it EXACTLY matches his expressed vision. I mean its his vision for gods sake. How can it not meet it?

I for one think the art looks fantastic and I cant wait to see the rest of it.

#1089 2 years ago
Quoted from thedarkknight77:

Would you so called "loving friends" really let him make a foolish mistake just so you could protect his feelings???

Foolish mistake? Says who, you? If you are going to let some petty differences, in what you feel the art direction should be, keep you from buying this kick ass and super fun to play machine, then so be it. I am sure Spooky will not miss your money. For every person that feels like you there is someone else that feels the opposite.

Quoted from thedarkknight77:

When he decided to produce this game with Spooky, he entered the world of business and when business people don't listen to their potential customers, the outcome is usually poor. I am less concerned about the backglass as I will just have another one made, but if the playfield art sucks, I am out. That's how it goes when you are paying $6000+ for a game. How many times have we seen this???? Don't repeat the mistakes of others.......There are a lot of people who don't like this art and feel it doesn't fit the game.

So now that he's a "business" person he should only listen to those that are not happy with what they see? Why shouldn't Scott/Spooky listen to me? I love the art! Should they only listen to those that hate it? Come on man. Quit being so narrow minded and look at the bigger picture.

It blows my mind that there are people that would take the game with sharpie shit scribbled all over the playfield but are bitching about the art direction they have chosen. I mean its not like the art is a complete shit show (it's quite the opposite).

#1117 2 years ago
Quoted from Rascal_H:

I didn't understand the part of the interview where Scott said there would be one version of the backglass with the scores and one without (in case they needed to cost out the score displays). He later said the scores would be lined up below the backglass. So you wouldn't really need another version, right?

The backglass shown here is the version they would use if they have to cut out the alpha displays due to cost. There is a second one in development which will include the display openings which will all be aligned along the bottom of the backglass. This second backglass will look just like this one, only with the addition of display openings. They are in the works on having a cost effective version of the alpha displays made. If it works out the backglass show here will not be needed. They are just trying to cover all their bases.

#1125 2 years ago
Quoted from mgpasman:

But where would the 17" TFT screen go?

It will be below the backglass in the speaker panel. Just like the Jetsons pin, but bigger opening for LCD display.

#1130 2 years ago
Quoted from mgpasman:

So they're ditching the old '78 Bally cabinet-style?

Yes. It will be in a modified Spooky cabinet.

#1182 2 years ago
Quoted from swinks:

curious.......... What is the pitch (how many degrees) set on this game as plays faster than 80's games

I am not sure if this will change with the new cabinet, but I don't think the pitch was ever altered on the Dolly Parton cabinet. So whatever the pitch was in 78 is, I am pretty sure, what it is running now.

EDIT: Have more specific info that answers your question better. The POC game (in Dolly cab) is set at 6 degrees. The production game will be set at 6.5 degrees. This can be adjusted back to 6 or up to 7 if your feeling extra LIONMAN.

I love that you're humble, knowledgeable, and passionate. You are super talented, yet no ego whatsoever. Much respect!

It's all an act. Scott is actually a jerk. I hear he likes to destroy SOFs behind closed doors. Oh wait.......

#2575 2 years ago
Quoted from epthegeek:

It'd be fun if the game recognized this and gave you some special display/award

Sneaky super jackpot. I like it.

#2717 2 years ago
Quoted from gweempose:

I will say that it's probably the best multiplayer game I've ever encountered. We were playing it for dollars last night and had an absolute blast!

That's because you were the one winning them! Lol. Actually, this game is so fun that you don't even mind loosing your money while playing it. I certainly didn't.

Quoted from Mocean:

If that's who I think it is in the background, y'all better check on your Swords of Fury machines...

Hey now, there wasn't even a SOF there. I checked.

Quoted from trilogybeer:

I'm going to have Scott sign my game , and I am going to take a picture of Scott signing my game . And I am going to have someone take a picture of me taking a picture of Scott signing my game .

You mean something like this?

only thing that could top it... somone retheming it into a 90s nerd boy obsession over a vampire chick

I'm taking that as a complement! Thanks!

Quoted from FatPanda:

For those that have played with a shaker motor installed, would it be a worthwhile upgrade or does the sub chamber and sound overpower it?

Quoted from lpeters82:

I think the sound in this case almost makes up for it not having a shaker motor. I think you will feel the game either way;

Actually the whole purpose of the sub chamber is to direct the bass out of the cabinet and not rattle the entire machine. So the shaker is definitely not lost in the sound on this game. I believe the shaker is well worth the investment.
