Pro Pinball - Kickstarter launched - Timeshock
« on: July 20, 2013, 04:09:23 PM »
here is the next stage of pinball mame and the graphics look beautiful with Pat Lawler and John Youssi at the helm it should have great physics and play.

they are just launching a 2nd attempt on kickstarter to get it off the ground very soon and you can download a lighting simulation program for free for ipad, mac and I think pc version -  just need to convince these guys to cater for a lcd, led mame so you can then make a game cabinet with these games in. Make sure to check out the facebook link as the development is impressive.

rumour is on VP forum that they will be doing a portrait view for mame cabinets - this would be great, with four tables remastered and a rumoured Pat Lawler 5th table.

noticed they were allowing the Pinball Arcade Terminator 2 Kickstarter to finish so should see something soon as they didn't want it to overlap - Terminator 2 has 37 hours to go.

I wrote to the guys with my focus being towards making a mame cabinet dedicated using this product and the answer is yes it will be mame suitable - so looking forward to this, and they will be designing around a second dmd screen  ^^^

this is what he had to say.


"Hi Jady,

Thanks for getting in touch.

I'm pleased to say we will be supporting cabinets and second screens for DMD display. Resolution wise, we will initially be supporting resolutions as high as 2880x1800, ultimately we will also support 4K displays too!

The Kickstarter video will show the game running in portrait mode (though not the cabinet specific view we will be creating).

Thanks for your support it is much appreciated.

Cheers,

Ade."

well it is up and looks incredible, like looking at a real playfield.

they will be supporting real cabinets and twin screens with a cabinet view designed in as well.

Update from the guys

Thanks to www.pinDMD.com we now have Timeshock! running on a real DMD! It really is cool to see something that has always been virtual becoming at least a little bit real! We had been wondering whether or not our pinball cabinet should use a real DMD or an LCD screen - I think we now know the answer.

Please keep spreading word, we're very nearly two thirds funded!

Many thanks,

Ade.

from an update

Yesterday was a great day for pledges! Thanks to all our new backers - we are now over two thirds of the way towards our goal with about three quarters of the time remaining!
We've had a few requests from backers asking to see something new running on a phone or tablet, so here's the attract mode sequence running on the iPad with the ambient light and general illumination turned off.
Thanks for all your support, please keep spreading the word and we can hopefully hit our goal with time to spare!
Ade.

another small update on the glass off mode - you would swear this was a real pin
