Phew! Just caught up on the last 24 hours of Hype/Hate.
I only jumped back into this hobby seriously 2 years ago, and when presented with the coin door interface (Never really heard it's designation brought up.) I wondered why this archaic piece of equipment was the main interface for diagnositics, settings, etc, and not just a phone.
Again, (Also as a new owner) setting up a game, moving it, removing the glass, playfield movement, all things I felt were either confusing, outdated or inefficient.
So Robert and team have addressed these issues, and possibly improved upon them in ways that may OR may not effect the entire industry for years to come, just like JJP has done, and P3 has in some ways as well.
This is all amazing news!
The not so amazing news, that the next step needs discussed from deeproot IMMEDIATELY, as in literally yesterday, now that the proverbial pincat is out of the bag. Direction, explanations, and an actual REAL timeline needs put in place.
People do want and need innovation, and it seems like they've attempted to innovate on interface, build, connectivity, etc, and in NO WAY whatsoever have redesigned the game of pinball itself, just everything surrounding it. So as even diehards that state over and over again, how much pinball doesn't need to change. Well, deeproot hasn't changed it at all, but merely changed the wrappings it's been confined within for decades.
This...is a very, very good thing.
Now onto manufacturing...
