Would love to say IM but the dots are so mediocre...

Seems like TZ is deserving of it!

Don't see it happening. More people on this site have CC than PM. Airborne is under 50 users or so.

Quoted from HighNoon:

Black Rose - I know...ColorDMD might not fit

Might as well get a ColorDMD for BR, it has so many damn video modes.

Not sure if they would ever go with that formfactor being so narrow. But count me in if they ever do.

TZ has won every one of these polls pretty easily....has to be something amazingly difficult in pulling it off....hopefully some day....

#65 5 years ago

FG would be a no brainier

Game would look sick with a colordmd. The DNA strands and gun stuff?! WOWZAA!!

#70 5 years ago

My vote is for Pinball Magic 'cause I already have them in my other games and like them a lot.

#71 5 years ago

I am really surprised to see so many votes for TZ. I own the game and just dont see it in color. B/W maybe, but no need for color on an old black and white show based game.

Every time I see this comment I shake my head. The playfield and cabinet and translite aren't in black and white. Who cares if the show was? Does having it in orange somehow represent it better?

ColorDMD feels 'new' and fresh, but I like the old theme and feel of the standard orange DMD in a classic game which uses imagery from a BLACK and WHITE show.

TZ would not benefit from color IMO. Color does not go with the theme.

Similar to how TSPP is great in color as it perfectly fits that theme.

I'm with you....I've got a Sigma in it now, and run it smoother in B&W....looks cool, but my GAME has vibrant color all over it...hard to imagine how badass it will look in color....

Sort of agree...TSPP is easily my favorite ColorDMD at the moment ( not even a close second in my lineup)...but FGY's Orange dots look like crap next to it now....

I think TAF smokes with the new color as well, and can't imagine TZ wouldn't do the same...

It's in virtually EVERY top 1-3 list of top games, massive following that has been begging for it almost 2 years now....just doesn't make sense ( fiscally, or popularity wise)....mark

#77 5 years ago

Even in this poll...it is requested more than all "other" titles combined, and far exceeds the next closest request (TRON, which I have a Sigma in as well). I remember Randy mentioning there were challenges in the design, and it's been targeted for the last 2 years.....am sure it will be worth the wait!!!

#79 5 years ago

Yes...have a Sigma there too...just waiting......

#80 5 years ago

It's time for Twilight Zone Color DMD. TZ is the only game in the top 5 on Pinside that doesn't have Color DMD support.

Quoted from PanzerFreak:

Crap...almost the only one in the top 18 that doesn't have one.....seriously.....what's up??

#82 5 years ago

Tron will be amazing.

#83 5 years ago

Someone asked about Funhouse, but that's not a DMD pin. Hard to make a ColorDMD for a pin without a DMD... Just sayin'

On the b/w side, the last remaining 18 titles of the Pinside top 100 that haven't been colorized yet (and can be) include:

02 - Twilight Zone
25 - The Shadow
28 - Cactus Canyon *
31 - Dracula
32 - No Good Gophers
34 - The Getaway
37 - Indianapolis 500
39 - Congo
49 - World Cup Soccer
51 - Champion Pub *
58 - T2
65 - Junk Yard
68 - Black Rose
73 - Corvette
75 - Demolition Man
85 - Who Dunnit?
88 - Jack Bot
94 - NBA Fastbreak

Notes:

* Due to rarity, Id' suspect these titles would not be a priority(based on sales expectations), though their quality of their animations are the intangible factor that needs to be considered.

- I do not believe that a ColorDMD will fit in Cirque Voltaire or Safe Cracker.

It would be nice to see separate voting polls for most desired B/W titles vs Stern titles.

Aside from TZ, and I'm just guessing, I suspect the most desired titles to colorize would include:
NGG, WCS, CP, TS, JY, T2 and DM.

I trust any of us that own any Capcom pins (Kingpin, BBB, Pinball Magic) would pay dearly for a ColorDMD, but that platform has yet to be tackled. I know the PM animations would be simply spectacular!

I'm pretty sure mounting a ColorDMD would be a challenge in SC, if it's even possible, because of the game board assembly in the head. If it's doable and someone colorized it, I'll buy one though.

I used to agree as I have mine setup in B&W too, but to have the colored option is great.

Won't Funhouse 2.0 be in color? Not by ColorDMD, though?

#88 5 years ago

CONGO, CSI, and POPEYE!!! Yes I said Popeye now Randy and Chris just needs to make it happen!!

Phoebe

#89 5 years ago

Indianapolis 500
The Shadow
Tales from the Crypt

These are the top games I am hoping for not on the above list.

#90 5 years ago

+1 for Indy 500 and the Shadow

#91 5 years ago

Not sure....but..... I think Whysnow wants Congo.

#92 5 years ago

did someone say congo yet?

Please have the guy that did Dr Who do Congo (Shimoda?) He rocks as coloring!

I think you're right that a ColorDMD won't fit in SC, but since I don't have that title, I wasn't in a position to confirm. Prior post updated to reflect what we believe. That leaves 18...

#99 5 years ago

Another vote for NGG. Really colorful table that would look great with a color DMD.

#100 5 years ago

So I know there has been arguments for and against color on TZ, I also know it's in the works and is coming out this year (next I hope please lol). Anyways I accidentally loaded the Addams family update in my TZ recently. I love my mistake. Lol I changed out my bulbs for LEDs on this pin, mostly blue, and by accidentally loading the wrong code I now have just a little blue in my dmd animations, the free play, ball number, ect. Sometimes there are color glitches, mainly on some of the rocket animation, but I like it none the less. Don't get me wrong I can't wait for more color but for now it looks nice. Thank you colordmd for all your hard work.
