40 year anniversary ?
Its changed and final now the design.
I have ordered some parts at marco's for my version of the remake of the Data East version. A ngg slamramp and the right spiderman ramp.
So when i get te parts i can check if everything is correct in my design.
Brigitte is already working on the graphics.
I also found a Starwars donor.
Translite is final.
It has a animated backbox with a extra lcd screen to play starwars screensavers.
Work in progres playfield.
This is a remake home version from the 92 data east Starwars for myself , not for resale
Quoted from solarvalue:
I like the playfield but I think you should remove the ugly guy in the middle and put Darth Vader there.
i had to choose between darth and the emperer, i choose the last one because darth is already on the slingshot.
And everything is final printing is already starting.
The new name and bigger death star because the death star uses the ngg lift ramp for two way intrance. Ramp down for start a mode.
Ramp up to opens deathstar for multibal and double jackpot.
Now you now how it works.
Its a handmade playfield drilled by hand with glos polymeer sticker overlay and on top a special mix of glas epoxy to flatten out the playfieldand to make make it shine.
And on top (not yet) a macralon transparant sticker to protect.
The inserts are on the playfield but also on the sticker printed (fake) for the best results.
Quoted from modfather:
You need to clean up that speaker panel. Maybe new speaker grills and a panel decal of space. It looks so clean everywhere else. Nice job .
Iám not shure what to do.
I don't like graphics on it because the backbox of a Data East is already hi and make the looks of it higher.
I think i leave it as it is for now.
This weekend completed a lot of things.
Its time now to make the plastics.
Scan the plastics in the computer and put the graphics on them.
Plastics are ready.
2 mm macralon, unbreakable.
Scan them in to the computer to ad the graphics.
Here is the lowest part of the final playfield with some plastics.
The apron has some changes.
I got a lot of questions is it for sale, how many do you make.
NO its NOT for sale and i only make one for myself.
Why... because its not licensed.
In november it wil be on te Dutch DPO Expo, and i do a seminar.
Then it wil vanish in my private gameroom forever just like my Mediëval Castle.
There some screensavers in development with the same background and moving 3d models from Starwars.
But there is stil the black bar from the display that blacks out the translite round de display.
maybe it looks awful.
Made some speaker leds.
And a plastic cover over the apron for the graphic, and between them some leds.
Thanks Peter, it will be on the dutch dpo and seminars.
I think Steve's version play's mutch better than mine because of the Data East rules i used.
And Steve is a better designer than me
cpu and sound boards are under repair, so when back i can try this desw remake out.
As you can see i have no working space around the machine.
So its literally built on the attic by hand.
Next month my son is going out with his girlfriend and i have his room for my hobby
The barbecue 10 juni i not a option for desw remake sorry.
This is one of my last post.
The last wil be a video playing desw remake.
Thanks for watching so far.
Quoted from PeterG:
I think the ColorDMD LED will fit better with the lighted backglass, the LCD is bigger and will show a shadow on the lighted translite.
you are right , led is better for my machine.
So i think i let the lcd in the Mediëval Castle and when having some extra cash i buy a extra led for the SW.
Its also better to ad a extra powersupply then i think.
It Was Kevin O'Connor's choice now i See.
Thank you Kevin.
This is it, the Star Wars homemade remake, originaly made by John Borg by Data East in 92 is done.
Next year i want to start a new project funhouse type
Style game with four levels. The 4 level wil be at the botom of the cabinet and playing on the extra big monitor in the backbox.
Or the next project is a new Invaders From Mars (with the software from the 95 wms Attack from mars.
Here my SWDSO seminar from the dutch Dpo Expo 2017.
Its crappy english but better than dutch.
I also show you how to make your own cheap playfield that looks like real.
For my next project i have to sale one off my homemade machines.
MC is not for sale.
SWDSO is for sale €4500 cash and carry at my home in holland no shipping sorry.
