Scott, please post a good picture of the under playfield. People need to get some perspective of exactly what is going on here.

This WOULD NOT be a cheap machine to manufacture.

In the long haul, fun factor is what rules the day, not toys and ramps. BTW, TA has pulled off a couple of neat little hat tricks; a toy created out of commonly used parts (the inline drops used as a ball locking mech) and an upper playfield that doesn't require you to actually grunt your way up there - i.e., it doesn't really exist while completely feeling like it is does.

Remove 2 $50 ramps and the game should cost $4000? Ramps were not omitted in this game for cost, they were omitted because this game was designed to be more fun without them. The BOM changes very little, if at all.

Quoted from rosh:

I'd say more of a proof of concept than a prototype. There are many aspects of what he has done that will likely have to change before the game goes into production. I would expect it will be more than a few months before we see a prototype that is more representative of what the production game will look like. Not saying it is going to be radically different, but this was a one off with no original intent to take it to production, so it was not engineered with that in mind. Add to that Scott has a full time job.
I have no inside info, but I'd imagine that TA would come after Alice cooper and whatever Ben is cooking up.

You're a smart man Josh.
Terry.

Quoted from Grizlyrig:

All kidding aside..I am interested in it having a shaker motor too,for when you destroy a reactor.
-Mike

Very likely an aftermarket item.

Quoted from benheck:

Pin sales boil down to one thing - Will a 50 year-old man buy it?
It's the reason extremely well done custom games like Buffy get largely ignored while a POS brick-fest like Predator steals half a million.

And BINGO was its name-o.
Perfectly said.

Quoted from trilogybeer:

You will find more information about Total Annihilation in the Lionman thread than you will in this thread .

So true!

Quoted from mgpasman:

His day job is "working at Pinball Life" according to Spooky's latest podcast.

Yes, Scott works at Pinball Life as his *day job*. He is our engineer and resident genius.

As for TNA, this is Scott's *moonlighting* job. PBL is not developing the game. All things TNA are between Spooky and Danesi Designs.

Of course Scott not only works at PBL, he is also my friend and has been for the last decade or so. I 100% support the TNA project for that reason, and it's certainly reason enough. However, PBL does not manufacture or develop pinball machines. I just want to make that clear for the record (or perhaps no one was wondering, but whatever).

Terry.

#821 2 years ago

Yes, Scoregasm is awesome (see what I did there?)

#825 2 years ago

Vajazzler

Quoted from bangerjay:Throwing a million things in a machine doesn't guarantee a good time.

Unless one of those million things is a Vajazzler.

Quoted from Whysnow:

I just hope I can get a version with nipples!
All the best BGs have nipples!
I mean, the nipple is the best part of the boob, so why have a central character with boobs and not include the nipple

Only Scott gets to see the nipples.

Do not waste time running it by pinball buddies or "yes men" at this stage.
Keep at it.

Trust me, his buddies are not yes men.

Quoted from bangerjay:

Look at our collection of hands, heads and feet to see where we've been. Embrace this parody: the ending of things you can believe. We'll drive you 'til you're skin and bones and when we finally reach the end, you'll fall into our open arms, accept our tears of sympathy. Make way for our emptiness. A descent that never ends 'til the one last living thing is the next thing to go. You should know by now that we never come in peace. Endure this tragedy, wrap yourselves in our fantasies. When you think of all you've lost, weigh it with what you've gained in trade. We've given the greatest gift: this savior that will never rise. The Bringer of Greater Things. Creator of Brighter Days. The city cops, a sub-zero night. A midnight ride out of town. The passenger was found frozen to the snow. Our enduring legacy. We bring a better way. Our handshake crushing bone. The blankets that keep you warm, we've soiled with disease. The Bringer of Greater Things. Creator of Brighter Days. The hollow songs you'll sing at the ending of your day.

That's either from a movie or you've totally lost it. Hopefully it is the first one. Regardless, it is nothing a mankini can't fix.

In not an insider as far as actual production dates go, but my guess is you'll see this game sooner, not later.

#1437 2 years ago

I've heard rumors that Swingboat is not functional this summer. Say it isn't so!

And....... TNA.

#1438 2 years ago
Quoted from toyotaboy:

I'm guessing it will ship with complete code too, not a blank usb stick #starcouldbewars

It will, barring bug fixes, which are inevitable.

Prototype has 2 playfield slide rails. I believe the production game will as well.

TZ have different modes and games, awful saying but... like apples to oranges.

TNA; easy to learn, hard to master. This is exactly what classic pinball rule sets are all about.

Quoted from TigerLaw:

I am not going to moderate two awesome Pinsiders, I choose to do a reminder instead, so please remember to keep all Lionman statements in the Lionman thread only. Thank you.

Scott started the LIONMAN thread, so a game designed by Scott should and will contain many tips o' the hat to said thread and topic. It's not off topic.

Some scoop damage tho......

That's some sort of light reflection. I was there last night. There is zero scoop damage.

Quoted from TigerLaw:

I think it's a great idea. I may order one also. Scott is running them off a 3D printer?

Yes

Quoted from jonesjb:

Is this something that's been around for a while? Can you get them in different colors, or just the gold one? I like the sound of this.

Golden brown and electric pink coming soon.

#3024 2 years ago

We do all actually bring our own dollar coins; either Sacs or Slutty Sues. Throwing out a Slutly Sue always raises an eyebrow though.

#3113 2 years ago
Quoted from Fortytwo:

I'm in the same boat. But I will just have to get a pink sac at the pinball life open house.
If I pre order can I get the show specials and just pick it up?

Yes, of course.
Terry.

Quoted from OnTheSnap:

My flippers are like cannons. They completely blast the ball.

Yeah, if your flippers aren't strong enough there's something not right. TNA flippers rip the ball around the orbits and blast away at everything else.
