That commercial used to scare the shit outta me as a kid. Still kinda creepy, maybe less than Deeproot tho

I guess I was old enough to only wonder how that wagon went straight through a perfectly good cabinet door. Looking back, some of those ads were pretty darn entertaining. Compared to say SuperBeets or LimuEmu and Doug.

#12803 9 days ago

Even the commercials were better in the magical 1970s!

I'm really looking forward to the 5 days of deeproot

So nothing then..... mmm k
Maybe tomorrow.

Eh, id go with maybe not, but this thread is still fun.

Now back on track to keep the topic police on point.

Food Truck Multiball Fried Cheese mode? Select 1 of 6 cheeses(Fumanda Cheese is selectable in Adult mode only), age to its perfection(in pinball time) shoot the shedder for insta-jackpot, or go for fried perfection, aged and point wise, with the insta-frypot-multiball. You know, the whole enchilada! Imagine ordering food from the Pinbar(tm). Yes Ive mentioned it before, but that is my (TM) idea. Food ordering while playing.

Why do pinball buyers all want nostalgia?

When deeproot goes under I hope the designers games get sold so another company can make them

So far, that never happens. Company goes tits up and it’s over.

There’s really no incentive for a an actual pinball company like Stern or JJP to finish some half ass fantasy designs produced within a fake pinball company. You just don’t get much - if any - benefit from it. May as well finish your OWN games that you have in the pipeline rather than crowbar Food Truck into the production pipeline.

I've heard stories of mold companies that go out of business, and rather than try to sell them as the molds they are (which work perfectly fine), they have an agreement with the customers they don't want those designs to get molded by some other company, so they literally take a hammer and dent the steel then sell the metal for scrap.

Gottlieb games (premier) developement time was between 12 to 15 weeks (mario bros, gladiators...), WMS 12 to 15 months. Could you beleive that! The « Premier » are not the best games for sure but anyway, look at what they were capable to do in such a short times: working and fun pins. At the end it’s what to be expected. Why so long to reinvent everything for at the end .... nothing.
I don’t think we’ll see anything at the Virtual expo. Not so surpised.

gladiators was Zelda --- American Gladiators --- Try to go Back to Zelda --- Gladiators. All of that in 12 to 15 weeks????

Quoted from Joe_Blasi:

That's the reason why Zelda and American gladiators were cancelled. To short dev time. Here we can't compare, we are at 9 years for RAZA ?? even if reworked couple of time. It's time to show a working pin, that was my point.

Zelda was the plan but then American gladiators (a big tv thing at the time) came up with Need to have game now and the deal did not work out and they had change it right at the end with no time to go back to Zelda

Gladiators was the best choice, because it would have cost bookoo bucks to get Malibu and Joe Theismann on board for American Gladiators.

Speaking of Zelda, Robert should have used all that money to get some "unobtanium" licenses like Harry Potter, Anything 2D Disney or Nintendo.

Get Lion King, Zelda, Mario, Harry Potter, let an experienced designer like Nordman design it and they'd have a line of customers beating a path to their door. (or put all hands on deck for Goonies)

Instead they put yet another art package on a turd that's been swirling around the bowl for the last 8 years.

They still can’t get the games built though

Getting a popular licensing deal is a problem that can be solved by throwing money at it, unlike finalizing a design and getting units in boxes.

I assume they don’t do Goonies first because they want to use a lesser demand title to figure out the manufacturing process with less pressure and expectations. At the same time, I’m probably giving them too much credit in that logic. Robert likely saw some art and figured it surely must be ready for the line

Still watching the recorded Expo streams.

Saw the video from Mirco, hammer testing the new playfield clear.

Seems Deeproot is getting passed by from about everyone...

...but hey, at least their bragging lead to the Hammer test!

This is why competition is good.

Wasnt haggis pinball hammering their playfields first?

#12840 7 days ago
Quoted from jorro:

Yes, they fired the first shot in the stupidest pinball war in history.

If you are a Martian watching drooling idiots on earth hammer perfectly good pinball playfields what are you possibly thinking about humanity?

#12841 7 days ago
Quoted from jorro:

Wasnt haggis pinball hammering their playfields first?

Yeah but Haggis doesn't use an all wood playfield. They do a thinner wood playfield with a layer of acrylic on top, similar to what Bally was doing on Elektra.

#12842 7 days ago
Quoted from jorro:

Haggis taped a piece of plastic over the playfield and hammered on it. The last I heard, they had not come up with their official method of attaching said piece of plastic to the wood. It was good marketing on their part...nobody would remember their name today if it were not for that video.

I like the war. I hate shit playfields. If said war changes said shit playfields into not shit playfields, humans will overcome global warming.

So it ships with a permanent playfield protector installed?

#12845 7 days ago

What day of the expo can I see the mirco pf demonstation

#12846 7 days ago
Quoted from kermit24:

It's much thicker than that. It's not a sheet of plastic that will lift and contort like a playfield protector might.

Think of it as two playfields sandwiched together. One of wood, one of plastic. I don't know the exact thickness of each layer, but it's much closer to 50/50 than a few mm of plastic on top of the standard playfield.

#12847 7 days ago
Quoted from Haymaker:

What day of the expo can I see the mirco pf demonstation

It's near the beginning of day 3. Which is one of the only two videos to be archived.

His son runs around during it, so he is mildly distracted while he reads his prepared notes. But it's a good demonstration of the minimal damaged with an over torqued star post (to the point that the post is breaking) and that his clear doesn't chip when hit with a hammer.

So did anyone get their free limited run deeproot Hammer Tested (TM) T-Shirt?

#12849 6 days ago
Quoted from jorro:

Yes, but Deeproot was first to offer orange-peel

#12850 6 days ago

Pardon my ignorance, I must have missed it somewhere along in this meaningful discussion..

Can someone explain or point to a reference of what the different editions of RAZA contain?
What is a RAZA Xtra?

Thank you. I am just wanting to receive a working machine.
