Quoted from Valorguy:

So this is the Deeproot Pinball thread, correct?
...SO many SO far off topic.

Deeproot could cure that in 2 seconds. However, instead, we have a riddle of a tease of part of a date with a unexplained graphic of a hulk that might fill in more in the future to lead us towards the final riddle, or more appropriately the next riddle. So to sum that up, Deeproot has chosen to not tell us anything. So this thread will continue to wander, which is directly on the topic Deeproot has chosen.

You will all have your questions answered when Deeproot finally gives the reveal....

No horse in this race but I'm curious to see what the other well known designers have produced.

The fist belongs to Ned, the main antagonist (formerly Ben Heck) of the RAZA theme, no?

Ned was Neb which is Ben backwards.

I would also, since he mostly has a point but his naysaying in this thread (wich would also be ok if he wouldn‘t jump to certain manufacturers defense wherever possible on every occasion) had me mute him for the time being.

Just wait for another ~12 days until you launch your shitstorm, based on something that hasn‘t been discussed hundreds of times.

I actually deleted this since I was not being nice. Self moderated. Apologies.

I think he'd be great and I even suggested Levi do a podcast a few months ago on Pinside. The up/down voting to my comment was interesting...
But I have little doubt that he would bring politics into it and I would be one and done.

What chance is there that they make their pinball cabinet so it works like the patent they took out 2 years ago?

#9475 4 months ago

Is this how many false release dates have been given to people?

Could also be how many games should have already been released?

Could also be a countdown to another announcement?

Could also be a countdown to another dissapointment?

10 (past midnight here)

I don't think 20th is the day, just the year of reveal. So it could be as late as 9/30/20, though hopefully not.

I don't think so either.

If I had a podcast would you take my opinions more seriously? That's really all it seems to take around here. If only I could figure out how to hook this tape recorder to the internet.

You're one of my favorite posters, I'd listen.

#9483 4 months ago

I'm just wondering what they interpret as the value they will offer. There's not a whole lot you can justify adding value with just software or special mechs. There are already very great games with excellent software features and the value with special mechs is just the user appeal not necessary replacement cost. I was thinking maybe the value they are offering is targeted at the on-site owner. Like cost to repair or ease of repair. That patent seemed to point in that direction. Guess we'll just have to wait and see what they have to offer.

Seeing that design I have little faith in it helping operators much in the longrun.

B/W slide out rail system was a fantastic innovation. Although, we all have seen what happens to them with time and/or misuse.

Apply that principle and some engineering to what you see above .... before long a multitude of failures could well arise. The supporting bushes so close to each other are under immense strain holding that playfield up at such distance, like a fully extended and thus weaker "crane". When those bushes become even a little sloppy the whole mech will become loose and floppy, because the bushes are positioned so very close to their cantilever counterparts (unless they're using some form of roller bearing or exotic bush material, which would be cost prohibitive). Also what happens if it is pulled sideways or in the wrong way/method? . This was a cause for many B/W slide malfunctions. It will happen much worse with the deeproot thing and just be a burden, especially for operators. I can picture a snag or wrongward rip possibly severely damaging the bottom of the cabinet there too, with it supporting a bit of strain when unfolded.

There is likely also big strain internally when folded up, there are springs or strutts in there to help you lift it out I would guess. Cabinets may be vulnerable longer term. Same with that bezzel/glass system. That shit's Heavy, anyone lifted an Alien bezel?

Just make the game reliable so you don't need to pull it out every week.

...Just make the game reliable so you don't need to pull it out every week.

The only reason I would remotely see that happening is if the playfield was intended to swappable.

Every time I look at that fist I see Blanka from Street Fighter.

You missed an interesting part at the bottom soliciting distros to sell RAZA.

Goes contrary to their prior plans of doing all direct sales.

You must be from the future. The site hasn't actually updated for me. It still shows the 3rd teaser.

Side tangent. If they do want outside distro help, does that infer the number of RAZA stock will NOT be super duper limited, as in under 200 or sumthin'?

I hope it's a good bit over 500, so these things are super difficult to get down the road, or are sold out immediately or stupidly overpriced.

I'd be up for a 5K RAZA...maybe, but not a 7K and up one.

I won’t give room to a 5k RAZA if there’s (only) value for that price in it. I want value of at least 8k (compared to lasted Stern) then I’m willing to pay up to 10k for 10k value 12k and so on (2k JPOP premium). I’m not buying a cheap machine not worth the hustle.

What is retro about RAZA?
