I wanted to introduce a new device that @wildertronix and I came up with. We call it Truelevel.
It's a small, usb powered device that you stick on your playfield (typically under the apron) that will help you setup the pitch and roll of your machine properly. We've been torture testing them with the fine folks at Abari Game Bar in Charlotte, NC.
The device easily mounts with 3M command strips under the apron.
We've also written a phone app that lets you interact with the device via Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE). The app is open to everyone, not just owners of Truelevel.
The idea is if you are a player and go to an arcade where Truelevel is installed, you can check to see if the pins are set up properly with a simple red/green indicator of their status, as seen below.
**CURRENTLY THE APP IS ANDROID ONLY, iOS VERSION COMING SOON (Q1 2020)**
If you are the owner of the device, you'll have set a PIN number that allows you access to the owners screen where you control the settings and get the raw readouts from the device:
We've put a limited initial run of the devices up for purchase on the storefront at: https://www.savepointvideogames.com/
The app is available in the Google Play Store: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.savepointvideogames.truelevel
**REMEMBER, CURRENTLY THE APP IS ANDROID ONLY, iOS VERSION COMING SOON (Q1 2020)**
Thanks for reading and remember to look for the "Truelevel Installed" sticker so you can use the app!
